Dumb carol only cares about embassy officials killed under the Obama admin.
Why?
Because it was a symbolic attack on the anniversary of 9/11. Not only did this administration remove security from that embassy but knew it was likely the day before.

"The CIA had warned the U.S. Embassy in Cairo Sept. 10, the day before the attack, that social media reports called for a demonstration 'encouraging Jihadists to break into the Embassy.'"

So if the CIA knew the day before, why didn't this president as well as the Secretary of State take precautions to protect those people?

Can't help you think big government is our collective conscious.

Even though generosity means to never "let your right hand know what the left is doing", big government really doesn't know what either hand is doing at any given time.

Safety nets will always be in place no matter what party is in power.

Bush did more to help Africans when AIDS had become an epidemic than you probably even know.

But he didn't expect to be patted on the back because it was the right thing and the compassionate thing to do.

No one complains when government really has compassion in mind and not as a means to control us.

See the difference?

Do you know about an unknown population explosion in the United States since the 1990s? Because Clinton, after successfully following the lead of his Republican Congress, even announced that the "era of big government is over". And we were doing just fine then. All of us.
Lowering the costs of health care by competition in the free market and tort reform and other common sense, cost-free solutions was the solution.
This administration simply did not want a good crisis to go to waste so they could fundamentally transform this nation.

Man dressed in O'bama clown face
KENOSHA, WIS.– A Wisconsin man wearing clown makeup dangled a child upside down from an overpass after coming home drunk from a Halloween party, according to officials who charged him with child abuse.

The Kenosha News reports that a woman called police after she saw 33-year-old Antonio Brown dragging two screaming children into woods in Kenosha about 2 a.m. Sunday. The 13- and 8-year-old children said Brown was their mother's boyfriend.

According to court records, Brown invited the children to go for a walk on train tracks when he returned from a Halloween party about 1 a.m. The children had done this before and thought it was fun.

But the 13-year-old boy told police that this time Brown was drunk and he forced the children to drink alcohol as well. The teen said he drank so much that he vomited.

The younger child became scared after they climbed onto the tracks, and the boys tried to run away. Brown grabbed the older child, held him upside down from the overpass and warned him, "If you try that again, I'm going to drop you."

Brown then climbed onto a train car and began hopping from one car to another, the complaint said. When the 8-year-old refused to follow, Brown grabbed him by the hair and tried to pull him up. He later dangled the child from a train car, holding him by the neck and ankle.

Brown has been charged with child abuse and second-degree reckless endangerment and is being held in the Kenosha County Jail. Court records do not list his attorney.

Kenosha is about 40 miles south of Milwaukee.

The slow death of the dead tree media

The New York Times Co.’s advertising department is struggling to replace its once-lucrative print ads with digital sales, as Google Inc.(GOOG) and Facebook Inc. gobble up increasingly large chunks of marketers’ budgets.

Both print and digital advertising at the newspaper decreased about 3 percent in the third quarter, the company said last month, signaling that the total amount fell below $140 million. That’s the lowest level since at least 1998, when the Times began reporting the ad revenue of its individual papers.

While the entire newspaper business is suffering advertising woes, the Times’ prestige and elite readership should be giving it a leg up over other publications, said Rick Edmonds, a media analyst with the Poynter Institute. Instead, the paper hasn’t yet capitalized on its surging online audience. The slump also has led to management turnover and budget cuts, hampering the ad department’s ability to attract new clients, people familiar with the situation said.

“The Times’ ad business reflects what’s happening in the industry, which is down altogether,” Edmonds said.“And if the Times is making deep cuts in the ad department, that could be affecting the quality of their ad sales.”

Cost reductions and low morale have led to the departure of as many as a dozen sales executives at the division, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. In some cases, budgets have kept sales reps from offering free Times subscriptions to clients -- once seen as a standard part of doing business, the people said.

Well, let's see...I've heard liberals blame Republicans for the rollout website fiasco and the insurance companies for not obeying the master of their universe and throwing people off their insurance rolls left and right. Like no one saw THAT coming...
But there's no one to blame but Obama, Pelosi and Reid - kinda like the three stooges of Obamacare.
Only low information minions would believe it's the insurance companies who want to cancel policies and coverage.

Only low information minions would trust "leaders" who go out of their way to evade responsibility.

Gotcha!
As long as it doesn't happen on that date it's cool with you.

I just wish your blind partisanship would have been shelved so that you could be as vigilante while bush let people get killed in our embassies.
