MUrder? That's Obama's foreign policy?
Not long after assassinating the head of al-Queda by violating the borders of a sovereign nation, Obama began targeting American citizens. He murdered al-awlaki and his son.

He continues to violate international law by flying bombs into buildings all over the Middle East.

Without consulting Congress, he attacked Libya. This lead to the murder of Qadaffi and the overthrow of his Government.

Yet, when the people of the Middle East attack our embassy, murdering our Ambassador and 3 others, Obama says it's all about some film. In Obama's mind, the people of the Middle East nations love and respect America even as we relentlessly attack them, bomb them, kill them and overthrow their leaders.

He's wrong. He's immoral. He's Hitler re-incarnate.

President Obama, in agreeing to a lengthy interview with "60 Minutes," may have created his own "bump in the road."

The president was facing heavy criticism from Republicans Monday for, in the course of that interview, referring to Middle East unrest as "bumps in the road," conceding "mistakes" in campaign ads and appearing to dismiss concern about Iran's nuclear program as "noise."

Romney's campaign seized on all three of those comments, and by Monday afternoon was hammering the president for the Middle East remark -- perhaps in a bid to return the favor after Democrats kept Romney against the wall last week defending his hidden-camera remarks on the "47 percent" of Americans who don't pay taxes. In the CBS interview, Obama said supporting the Arab Spring was the "right thing" to do but acknowledged there would be "bumps in the road" in the process.

"These are no bumps in the road. These are human lives," Romney retorted at a campaign stop in Colorado. On ABC News, Romney also said: "I can't imagine saying something like the assassination of ambassadors is a bump in the road."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was hit with a string of questions at Monday's briefing about the "60 Minutes" interview. The most aggressive accusation by the Romney campaign merited the most aggressive response from Carney.

The accusation about Obama's Middle East comments, Carney said Monday, is "both desperate and offensive." ......Carney is right TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, OBAMA IS DESPERATE........OBAMA IS DESPERATE AND OFFENSIVE.....CALLING THE DEATHS JUST A SPEED BUMP......NO CLASS.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama appear on the ABC Television show “The View” in New York (Pablo …President Barrack Obama said Monday that the Sept. 11 attack that claimed the life of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans "wasn't just a mob action," but he stopped short of explicitly labeling the assault as an act of terrorism.

Obama's comments came as he taped an interview with "The View" during a brief trip to New York to address the annual United National General Assembly. He had been asked whether the attack on the U.S. Consulate compound in the city of Benghazi was a terrorist act.

"There's no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn't just a mob action," the president said. "What's clear is that, around the world, there are still a lot of threats out there." Obama's remarks were collected by pool reporter David Boyer of the Washington Times.

The head of the National Counterterrorism Center has called the attack an act of terrorism. White House spokesman Jay Carney said it's "self-evident" that that is the case. But Obama did not explicitly do so.

Still, his remarks reflected a day-by-day shift in how his administration has described the attack. At first, the White House described it as a spontaneous act resulting from demonstrations against an anti-Islam video on the Internet. That video has led to angry anti-U.S. protests throughout the Muslim world. Obama noted that, but he underlined that "there's never an excuse for violence." And he said the best response to the video would be to "ignore it"--even though aides said he would discuss the film in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday.

The incident has raised questions about whether the slain ambassador, Chris Stevens, should have had more protection. And Republicans led by Mitt Romney have pointed to the demonstrations across the region as a sign that the president has botched his response to the so-called "Arab Spring" uprisings that have swept authoritarian regimes from power.

Of course, they didn't "lie". Perhaps their spin just didn't work. If they didn't lie, the grave ineptness --- speaks for itself.

In any case, it's not a positive note.

Most politicians 'misspeak" or do things "not on purpose". If they are true leaders, they have the facts and make judgements for the good of the country rather than self election or re-election. Once this pattern is offered up repeatedly, be wary and afraid. Think for yourself.

Vote for what they DO, not what they say... OK, perhaps a little combination of what they say (little part) and what they do (large part).

Vote for experience. We have all had the experience of living under various levels of lack of experience and lack of truth. Often those persons' goals is simply to make themselves look 'good', not lead with facts and tough decisions.

Rapid rush to opinion or believe all citizens repeat the script and follow the mob is ineffective for most. Some of both sides, will, of course take the lazy way out and resist research, morals, and thinking for themselves.

My hope for change is that this number is becoming smaller and smaller. Our country can no longer afford hate, division, and lies -- by anyone.

Wonder how Obama was elected and polls can be off so much........

Howard Stern Interviews Obama Supporters 2012

Howard Stern contributors Sal and Richard travel to Harlem to interview Obama supporters and ask them why they are voting for Obama.

Stern and his crew ask denizens of Harlem various outrageous questions, including if they believe Obama will find and kill Osama bin Laden; if Romney is a Muslim and if Obama is a Mormon; if Obama made the right choice by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate and if he did it because he is black.

One interviewee was under the impression that 2008 Republican nominee John McCain is also running this time.

"Just trust me, not one person knew that Osama bin Laden was dead," Stern said during the segment.

"Well, we're obviously dealing with a whole population that doesn't listen to the newscasts or read a newspaper," co-host Robin Quivers said.

LOL! They didn't "intentionally mislead". They LIED! All Obama and the Dems care about is getting another term. Nothing else matters. So keeping Obama's foreign policy failure under wraps until after November is the ONLY goal.
