Al Qaeda, ex-Gitmo detainee involved in consulate attack, intelligence sources say

Qumu, a Libyan, was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2007 and transferred into Libyan custody on the condition he be kept in jail.
Obama let this man out of gitmo. Get your facts straight. Obama is to fault. He knew of this strike 3 days before it happened. Guess he was asleep or playing gulf as usual. America is unprotected.

Mitt Romney's job history of taking over profitable companies and fking them up seems to be the same strategy he's doing with his own Presidential campaign.

Funny how liberals hated the Patriot act and protested on the street when Bush was prez but now they love the patriot act and defend it......
Any one seen and of the far left loons code pink protesting the war in the last four years????
Where is the moron Cindy she-has-shet-in-her-head....
Wrong wrong wrong. Obama is just another right wing politician. He is not supported by the left. The only reason anyone would vote for him is because he is not as extreme as most of the republicans. Obama is further right wing than Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, Reagan and bush sr. He is not as extreme and incompetent as bush jr.

As to protesting the war, yes, I see it all the time

I have often said I would not vote for any person or political party who supports the Pat Act. The bush wars should never have started. Only a die hard republican would keep wars, allowing American soldiers to be in harm's way just to keep paying the military industrial complex. I suppose the only way to stay in office is to show obedience to the corporations who paid to put him there.

<quoted text>Oh, for heaven's sake. Mitt is a Republican, he supports the Patriot Act, and buddy, believe you me, he's itching to get into a war somewhere. Who knows what he promised in Israel to get Netenyahu so hot and bothered. I don't think I like it.
Whatever failures you see Obama as having had, economists see real progress out of the recession. We're on the verge. We're going to be in a world of trouble if Mitt Romney is elected and starts keeping promises. Oh, yeah! And, if he doesn't keep his promises, we're in big trouble as he just resumes Bush Policy, Third Edition.
Take a deep breath and look closely at the policies and plans of both candidates. This is NOT an "anybody but Obama" election. That might have been a possibility had the Republicans not resumed trickle down as an approach while concurrently robbing every single regular American of more money for the filthy rich.
Why are we so worried about the filthy rich? I don't get it. I just hate Oligarchies. I don't know why the rest of you don't.
And, Obama wasn't a Socialist when he talked about redistribution via policy. D*mn it, it was policy that redistributed what the middle-class had earned in the first place and gave it to the wealthiest. We have thirty-five years of PROOF. What more do we need. Sometimes seeing IS believing. Been there, done that, and I think it's a tremendous mistake to screw ourselves some more.
Give Obama another look VERSUS what Romney keeps telegraphing he's gonna' do TO you, not FOR you.
u are one seriously CONFUSED person.
IF u ever were a RP supporter, how do u go from Constitutional enforcer to someone that believes IT is flawed? Romney has made NO such statement, EVER, that I know of. do u?
Obama's policies are simply recycled FDR New Deal policies. they failed in the 30s and they failed NOW. repeating failed policies is NOT an answer. that reason ALONE is ebough for most SANE people to fire him. are u a sane person?
neither Rs or Ds screwed our Country and economy. Progressives posing as Rs and Ds did. Wilson, as a phony Dem, started the ball rolling. TR, the first Prog Rep, was denied the Rep nomimation and had the decency to run OPENLY as a Prog. the voters didn't elect a Prog then and would not elect one TODAY.
Progressives, at their core, do NOT respect the Constitution or ITs amend process. three out of four of FDR's New Deal programs were ruled UN-Constitutional. only SS survived because he THREATENED to pack the SC and the sitting Chief Justice blinked. SS was going to be thrown OUT, too. SS was NOT supported by the people, even during the Great Depression. Principles and American Values transcend economic down turns. FDR, like Obama, campaigned AGAINST the very policies he then implemented. Obama campaigned against ur hated Bush policies and then supported most of THEM!
that is NOT to say Bush was right. that IS to say, Bush, too, was MORE Prog than Republican!
the 'radical right' that u supposedly despise is trying to re-capture the GOP. the Dem Party is too far gone so as NOT to exist any longer as the Party of JFK. why do YOU suppose this DEM Pres could not even get ONE DEM vote for his last proposed budget? I think their DEMOCRATIC consciences would NOT allow them to commit collective political suicide and stand with the President.
Romney is the X factor... he could be JFK or Nixon.
he could be Clinton or Reagan.
what he ISN'T is OBama, a KNOWN Prog SCUM FAILURE.
why are YOU stuck on supporting FAILURE?

All of your capitalization aside, I think the President has shown a great deal of integrity and a great deal of restraint. With which terrorists has he shown associations? From what I understand, he has shown reverence toward his parents, as most well-reared people do, to his country, as evidenced by his desire to serve, and to his god. Which of these qualities do you consider to be the most "rebelious" to the American spirit? As for bankrupting the country,'tisn't true. He DID keep us from falling off the cliff toward which we had been led, and the recovery from the recession will not happen in four years, no matter who is elected.
Regarding family...he has a brother living in a HUT for goodness sake! You don't really know much about him because he has gone to great links to have his information sealed. Why? Why? Why?

We are closest to the cliff because of excessive debt stacking up, he has places us in a most vulnerable position which at any time is likley to fall apart. He keeps spending, borrowing and spending what we do not have. Has NEVER put a budget together! He is a hater of this country. Bows to leaders of other nations!!

Obamanation!..... Worse than Carter. In my opinion he as put this country in a very weak state with over 16 tril in debt, with bail outs for failing companies both in and out of this country, cash 4 clunkers, bowing to leaders of other countries, refused to call Fort Hood terrorism, has made NASA a muslim outreach, is NOT a friend to Israel, apologizes for insults to muslims and calls insults to christians free speech, was negectful during the BP oil spill and the Texas fires, extreme unemployment more than thought because the number do not reflect those not looking anylonger, repealed don't ask don't tell, disrespect our veterans, sell 30 billion of F15 fighter jets to Saudia Arabia, does not think Arizona should be able to protect their borders even when it according to the already established law, Obamacare, Eric Holder, Obamas assistance in letting the muslim brotherhood get control of Egypt, meeting with muslim brotherhood while refusing to met with the leader of Israel, telling the Russian leader to just wait until after the election, NO budget and refuses to budget, denounced tactics used to get Osama but takes all the credit, fast and furious,Timothy Geithner who does not pay taxes but is the Secretary of Treasury .........

Romney sidesteps specifics on his immigration reform
By Jonathan Easley - 09/19/12
......The forum moderators asked Romney if his permanent solution would result in mass deportations.
“I’m not going to be rounding people up and deporting them,” he said, adding that he like aspects of Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) plan, which would allow those who serve in the military a path to citizenship.
Rubio has not made public any details of his immigration reform plan, but has said he was working on one before Obama’s deferred action directive.
Romney was also asked to address a remark he made during the Republican primaries, when he said he was for the “self-deportation” of illegal immigrants.
“I’m not in favor of a mass deportation,” Romney said.“I believe people make their own choices if they want to go home and that’s what I mean by self-deportation…I love legal immigration…and at the same time to protect legal immigration we have to secure our borders.”
Romney - not ready for prime time.
Go Romney attrition through enforcement.. ;-)

"On Wednesday, Romney said he liked some aspects of the Arizona immigration law, such as a putting the onus on employers to make sure they don’t hire illegal immigrants."

Treating Benghazi Like Bain
Posted by Amy Davidson

What was so bad about what Mitt Romney said about Cairo and Benghazi—and with what he keeps saying? On Thursday afternoon, a new mob was around the U.S. Embassy in Yemen, a reminder that this is not just an abstract question. There is no prohibition, at such moments, from criticizing one’s government—and there never should be—but as a major party’s nominee for President, Romney is also, by default, a participant, the leader of the opposition, and at least he had the obligation to treat this as something other than a game. It was striking to see a man who presents “apologizing for America” as the ultimate crime turning on Americans—the President, but also low-level embassy workers—at a moment of crisis.
Yep. Not ready for prime time.

<quoted text>Lip Service fears what she sees coming her way. She hates what she is heading toward and remembers the "good times" were under Republicans, believes they will re-emerge if ONLY a Republican is in office again. They won't. The good times were coincidental with the inspiration, good luck and good timing, not the politics.
u inadvertently hit the nail on he head: the Great Society (Prog welfare programs, Big Govt/Big Brother-ism) WAS tolerated as long as the Middle Class as largely UNAFFECTED. well, the social engineering and entitlement costs AND anti-American trade policies have FINALLY wrecked their havoc on our economic system.
we have LOST too many jobs to FREE trade (the Prog move to a Global economy). we have spent too much on illegal wars (the Prog 'nation building' foreign policy). we are still spending too much on entitlement programs (the Prog FAIRNESS and social engineering policies).
the 'fatted calf' is in the process of being slaughtered!
the TP Movement and RP popularity and ur 'radical right' ARE the 'calf' screaming in protest. you just can't or WON'T hear its cries.
IT is saying,'STOP the madness! STOP spending US into oblivion! STOP ignoring the Constitution and ITS limits! STOP KILLING ME!!'.
wake UP... there is NO utopia over the Progressive rainbow... or ANY RAINBOW. Life is NOT fair... everybody suffers its insults and injuries at some time. what matters is HOW one deals with them.
we used to preach suck it up and get on with living. NOW (and for the last 50 years), we, as a society, having been telling our most vunerable folks,'it's NOT ur fault OR responsibility. let those of us that have dealt successfully with Life, CARRY YOU.'.
guess what? the 'carriers' are BROKE. now what?
