For Fox News, a Tired Old Hoax Trumps Obama Outperforming Reagan
So Fox News has come back in a frenzy to their old Benghazi hoax, even though House Republicans have admitted Obama did nothing wrong. So absurd has their bubble reality become, you begin to wonder if these are the sort of people who would admit the sun had set if it was dark.
Because airing already debunked claims on Thursday’s Special Report, and repeating them on Friday with their 13 Hours at Benghazi: The Inside Story was not enough, Mitt Romeny was trotted out on Fox News Sunday to repeat the “stand down” routine we’ve all become so fond of over the past months. Even Romney, who loves himself some Romney, was willing to sling mud at Obama before talking about what a great president he would have been.
Yes, this is “Which Mitt,” the guy who holds every position on everything, depending upon what he thinks you might want to hear. Since Fox News wants to hear tired old, oft-debunked Benghazi lies, that is what Which Mitt gave them.
The economy is improving. Did you hear? We already know that the economy does better under Democratic presidents. The mainstream media ignored this, let alone the Fox echo chamber.
But not only has the media ignored an improving economy but they’ve ignored Republicans doing their level best to destroy the economy. And now Forbes just reported Saturday that “It’s Official: President Obama Is the Best Economic President In Modern Times.”
Best. In. Modern. Times.
BENGHAZI!!!!!
If they don’t shout loud enough, their little bubble will burst, and they can’t have that.
And so it is the mantra they repeat while blocking out any hint of good news. Obama could dismantle ISIS on Saturday and Sunday we’d hear, BENGHAZI!
It becomes increasingly difficult to understand how they can do this without rolling on the floor laughing. I mean, how do they keep straight faces? Are they pumping drugs into these people while on camera? Are they people at all, and not some clever CGI animations?
What is stunning is that other networks are not airing specials on Fox News’ Benghazi obsession. The real scandal here is that Fox News created a lie out of whole cloth and has turned it into a self-sustaining industry.
Why is THIS not news?
Isn’t that the least bit scandalous?
I suppose other networks might if they weren’t as deeply mired in Republican corporate politics as Fox News. I mean, look, even MSNBC, the network Fox decries on a regular basis for being communist lapdogs, said Rachel Maddow is too partisan, but that Morning Joe is not.
You seriously think they’re going to point fingers at Fox News? And CNN, really? CNN, which regularly avoids reporting things that might hurt the Republican narrative? MSNBC and CNN, which prefer endless John McCain narcissism to real news?
Yeah. About that…
Liberal media elite.
Liberals should be so lucky to have a slice of mainstream media pie.
Ain’t happening.
Remember, it was Obama, while George W. Bush was president, who invaded Iraq and Afghanistan and created the conditions for ISIL!
Sunnis and Shiites? Obama the Muslim was there at Mohammed’s death to manipulate the schism.
Look, if the mainstream media isn’t going to cry foul over this lie it isn’t going to defend Obama on Benghazi. There’s just too much corporate money to be made selling Faux News.
The reason for all this is clear.
If Obama were Solomon, he would still be black. If he were Moses, and could lead Americans to the promised land, no Republican would follow.
That tells you where a strong economy gets you in the mainstream media.
It gets you to Benghazi.
Go directly to Benghazi. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

The Constitution allows anyone to petition for grievances. To make a statement like "Only the DOJ may file suit for violations of the Police Misconduct Provision" displays a complete misunderstanding of what the United States of America is... or was before the Democrats took control of the government.
Perhaps the DoJ should be investigated to discover why they ignore outright slaugher in some locations, like where Obama was a community orgainzer, and pay particular attention to 1) a case where a person was attacked and killed the assailant; and 2) a case where a person looted a store, assaulted the store employee, and injured a police officer before being shot.
You should go get your money back from whomever claimed to educate you in civics.
Well, it is obvious I am smarter than you.

Anyone, including you, can file a complaint with DOJ if they believe their rights have been violated by a police officer. However, "only the DOJ may file suit for violations of the Police Misconduct Provision." I doubt you ever graduated from High School.

The communications blackout last Thursday has the characteristics of being a test.
When the Democrats execute their False Flag event as part of their coup to take over the country, the first thing they will do is cut communications so people can't share information about who is doing what where. The next thing will be Obama saying something like "not all muslims are terrorists" to confuse everyone and misdirect them away from the fact that all mosques are military installations for jihad, and are central to the next Islamist terrorist attack the Democrats will use to declare a state of emergency so they can institute the dictatorship they have in mind.
Considering the Democrats are acting very smug now in spite of the obvious poll numbers indicating they are going to get shelacked in the coming election, I'd say everything is going according to their plan.
I've said this often. Never in history have Marxist communists or Islamists ever voluntarily given up any position of power and authority they managed to achieved. Something as mundane as an election is of no consequence to them. The people are too stupid to make their own decisions, anyway. Here will not be the first time in history Marxist communists and Islamist voluntarily give up power and authority merely because of an election.
LOL. I swear you are the number one fan of conspiracy theories. You are immune from evidenced based thinking which is the very reason you feel excluded from society.

You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!
And you're a poser. Changed you name again, I see.

But the answer to your question is Bill Clinton. He was the sitting president for five years when the same warnings and threats were routine. He didn't know the date, time, targets and mode of attack either.

Maybe if he hadn't built that wall between the CIA and the FBI to protect his political interests....

Not sure. I blame those who perpetrated the attack.

All anyone ever has to do is watch a thousand videos of Bush speaking and pretending to know that he was not the brightest bulb. He had no frigging clue what he was doing as president and if his name wasn't Bush would never have been president. He was as clueless as you are about me now..By the way moron all military get to work KP, just put that white towel on the foot of your bed, except for perhaps the very privileged like Bush of course. Most anyone can be taught to fly a plane.

He served only to avoid the draft and even them went AWOL and DESERTED. Plain and simple..LIKE YOU.
Second, Bush's IQ is below average relative to that subset of the U.S. citizens who also managed to work their way into the White House. In fact, his intellect falls near the bottom of the distribution. When compared with twentieth-century presidents from Theodore Roosevelt through Clinton, only Harding has a lower score (at least on three of the four estimates). A similar conclusion is suggested by the Intellectual Brilliance measure, albeit in this case there are now two twentieth-century presidents with lower scores, namely, Harding and Coolidge. Moreover, Bush's IQ falls about 20 points--more than one standard deviation--below that of his predecessor, Clinton, a disparity that may have created a contrast effect that made any intellectual weaknesses all the more salient. Clinton's intellectual attainments as a Rhodes Scholar and Yale Law School graduate, his demonstrated capacity for mastering impressive amounts of complex and detailed information, his verbal eloquence and fluency, and his logical adroitness and sophistication--at times, as during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, verging on sophistry--places Clinton head and shoulders above his successor in terms

You file a grievance through the courts, moron. The DoJ is not part of the Judicial Branch of government. It is part of the Executive Branch of government. If the DoJ is corrupt and, for instance, the Attorney General is running guns for Mexican drug cartels and instigating a race war, an American has the Judicial Branch of government to redress grievances.
You don't have a clue what the United States of America is, or was before Obama was named President. Why don't you and Obama read to goddam Constitution at least once in your life.

It’s Official: President Obama Is The Best Economic President In Modern Times

A new economic report, published by Forbes.com on September 6, 2014, clearly shows that President Obama is the best economic president in modern times. It’s not an opinion, it’s a fact, based on all of typical the economic indicators, including jobs, investments, growth and expansion, even the rate of inflation. In all of these areas President Obama’s record outperforms that of every other modern president, including conservative idol, Ronald Reagan.

Under President Obama’s leadership, the unemployment rate has now decreased to 6.1 percent, the lowest it’s been since 2007, when the economy began gushing jobs under the failed leadership of then president George W. Bush.

Typically, republicans have tried to detract from the president’s accomplishments. When it comes to the falling unemployment rate, they claim that it is somehow related to large numbers of people just dropping out of the workforce. This would almost be believable if the economy wasn’t creating new jobs at a rate that coincides perfectly with the falling employment rate, but it is. There have been six consecutive months with more than 200,000 new jobs created, with only a slight dip in that number in August. Additionally, there have been 63 straight months of economic expansion and more than two solid years of manufacturing expansion.
