'13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush's Watch Without a Peep from Fox News"

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bob-cesca/13-be...

I'm curious, could you please explain why the different reactions:

1. President Obama's staff releases a picture of him in the oval office with his foot on the desk.
teabaggers and Faux news complain he has no respect for the office

2. President Bush's staff releases a picture of him, kicked back in his chair wiht BOTH FEET on the desk.
not a beep from anyone complaining about his lack of respect for the office.

3. One consulate is attacked during President Obama's tenure, where the ambassador was warned not to go.
Teabaggers and Fox news implement a campaign to smear the President and call for impeachment.

4. 13 embassies are attacked during the Bush administration, not a word of complaint from the teabaggers or fox news.

5. In the face of the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression and 2 wars (started by the previous administration), the deficit is increased by about $5 trillion dollars during President Obama's administration. President Obama includes the costs of the Iraq war into the budget and subsequent deficit, something the previous administration didn't do in order to hide the cost Teabaggers and Fox news have a field day complaining about runaway spending

6. the Deficit is doubled from $5.5 trillion to $11 trillion. and not only that, Bush manages to keep the cost of the Iraqi war out of the budget through special appropriations. Projected cost of the war range between $4 to $6 TRILLION, almost as much as the deficit increased under President Obama

So my question to you is why the different reactions?

what is the difference between both men?

Interesting you would invoke homeland security. We ran that dyke janet neopolitan out of this State years ago.....:-)
Yeah and you bozo head worms of a pinfeather have had plenty of time to restaff that office.

What's the excuse for THAT (yet more) SLCAKERticking?

It's really pathetic listening to the Three Stooges (Obama, Kerry & the Pawn Susan Rice)- all liars & back stabbers of the military, try to make a case to put our forces & country in harms way.

Our standing in the world is worse now than it was under Bush.

Our Commander in Chief doesn't even know how to say "Corpsman" - he thinks they are corpses - the idiot.

pathetic...

I won't be listening to the moron's speech Tuesday.

SYDNEY/CANBERRA (Reuters)- Australia's conservative leader Tony Abbott swept into office in national elections on Saturday as voters punished the outgoing Labor government for six years of turbulent rule and for failing to maximize the benefits of a now fading mining boom.
Abbott, a former boxer, Rhodes scholar and trainee priest, promised to restore political stability, cut taxes and crack down on asylum seekers arriving by boat.
"From today I declare that Australia is under new management and Australia is once more open for business," Abbott told jubilant supporters in Sydney.
Abbott, 55, built up a strong opinion poll lead on the back of promises to rein in government spending, scrap an unpopular tax on carbon emissions, and stop the flow of refugee boats arriving in Australia's northwest.
Trainee priest? Trained by Fr. O'Malley? Oh that's just fuggin great, then of course he became a boxer after wrestling with OMalley.

Go back and listen to Obama's speech from August 30, the actual speech and not the media spin. Obama clearly stated that he has made the decision to attack Syria.
I suggest YOU go back and listen to the speech. He DID NOT say that he had made a decision to attack Syria.

"...the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. Now, I have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that norm. But as Ive already said, I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options. We have consulted with allies. Weve consulted with Congress. Weve been in conversations with all the interested parties."

I would NEVER, under any circumstances, vote for a republican again. Never, ever. I believe in equal right for all. I believe in women's rights. I believe in taking care of the less fortunate amongst us. I do not believe in elitism,etc. In other words, I support everything Republicans are against.

The toxic plague poisons of flock-ing MESSes of Ignorance.

Example?

Kids A, B,C, D, E, F and G all decide to take AP classes while in high school. They come from homes with modest, tightly balanced and budgeted incomes-some just a tad but over "US scribed poverty levels".
Kids H, I and J take them too...from two wage earner families, not quite as constrained to tightly provised budgets.
Kids L and M are in the same class as well-from lower income, more givverment dependent type backgrounds.

ALL are kids. ALL are taking the same class.

Why is it that kids L and M, are "rewarded monetarily, for future edu enhancements" while ALLLLLL the rest of the kids, receive NOTHING for doing the SAMe (if not MORE) amount of work.

The TOXIC poison of "affirmative action" libuhrulTIC givverment entitleMentalCase entitleMentality BULLCHIT.

Everyone has equal rights. Women's rights? Why? Doesn't that fall under equal rights for all? I believe in helping the less fortunate, what I don't believe in is, the the Giverment paying for the less fortunate. That's not a government responsibility.

Do you also believe that the Magic Negro's proselytizing and calling the world to action in Syria is a moral imperative especially coming from a schmuck who lies, cheats and reverses himself often?
Would you be willing to follow a Bernie Madoff, P.T. Barnum or Charles Ponzi because they claimed to have stumbled upon a moral imperative that needs addressing?
Or would you yawn widely and tell them to go yell "Wolf!" somewhere else?
Government, especially government under this azzhole, has no business talking about the morality of chemical weapon usage when the Boy Messiah's drones have killed more women and children peripherally than anyone's use of WMD in Syria.
This is why I keep a skeptical eye toward Federal Government PSA's.
What would be your reaction to a Boy Messiah Federal PSA showing a suffering old lady in a shoe with 13 starving kids and then concludes by pushing government-funded abortion as a human moral imperative? Shades of 1984, Fahrenheit 451,.....
Guess I'd have to learn more about who's behind these ads. Encouraging black fathers to be more involved with their children doesn't seem that intrusive to me.

The Democrats have pretty much ignored the plight of the black community and seem to like the status quo up to this point, so I'd be surprised if they were behind them.

When it comes to this president, his inexperience and naivety is his Achilles heel. He slid through his first term because others were doing the work of Obamacare for him and he was an absentee president, otherwise, when it involved hammering out compromises with the opposition. The liberal media kept the scrutiny off of him with Benghazi and the IRS until the storm passed.

So he has virtually been an isolated and untouchable president with others to fall back on and protect him and, thus, there has always been a chasm of disconnect with the American people.

This is the first time he knows what it's like to have the burdens of the presidency on his own shoulders standing alone without anyone to protect him and his reputation as a world leader on the line. He is truly out of his element and it's painfully showing.

Does that answer your question?
