Get your facts straight Obama did not apologize, the embassy made the statement but it was not an apology. Unless you are a partisan hack all the embassy did was state that we don't support hate speech in an attempt at reasonable diplomacy to diffuse what at the time was an escalating riot.
Did you notice that 30,000 Libyans took to the streets in support of the Embassy and the US?
Go back and look at what Bush and his advisors said about the trials and difficult road that bringing Democracy to the middle East would entail and then compare that to the hypocrisy of the current Republican rhetoric. Flip flop, flip flop, flip flop.....
despite the liberal press jumping all over Romney for saying we need to stand up for our Constitutional rights and freedom of speech rights and we need a strong military.....Obama got another pass and they focused all their attention on a video that was only used as an excuse to deflect the attention away from the total abject failure of our Middle East policy.

Not just 30,000 Libyans....millions of Muslim protesters in dozens of Muslim countries are rioting and demanding death to America.

but what is slowly surfacing in the media, in little baby spoonfuls, is that the Obama administration ignored important intelligence information and left our Embassy vulnerable.

Here is the real problem....the Muslim world is adamant about conquering the world, it is an all consuming goal for them. But, it has only been because the USA has been so powerful that they knew they didn't have a remote chance.

Now they see a weak apologetic President

they see a dramatically weakened military

they see a chaotic policy in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, and Syria

they see us allowing Iran to build a nuclear bomb

they see unsustainable debt on liberal entitlement programs

they see a divided nation with class warfare and a stagnant Congress and Senate.

they see uncontrollable immigration

they see gays being pandered to (I'm not homophobic, but in their culture....they kill them)

they see an atheistic godless society based upon materialism,

Go watch some more MSNBC....why should hard working tax payers pay for abortions and birth control, if it is against 84% of Americans moral religious belief ?

At the DNC, when the speeches were not about godless socialism, it was about the necessity of tax paid abortions and birth control, that was their primary definition of "A war on women" !

Right, Reagan’s economic policies were considered by his critics to be "Welfare for the Rich," and Reagan also said too that “Tip is truly a New Deal liberal. He honestly believes that we’re promoting welfare for the rich.”

I knew that Mitt, the Great Flipper, was out of touch,
but now - well, I just think that he’s touched.
Are we in the jungle Mitt, or are we a community?
What does our country owe its people?
What do our people owe our country?
And what do we ...we the people....owe to each other
- as part of a society called America?
Romney and Company has an answer.
And it ain’t pretty.
They smirk ...and smugly say to us:
TO HELL with all those “moochers” and “free-loaders”
receiving Medicare, or Veterans Benefits, or Pell Grants,
or Earned Income & Child Tax Credits, or Head Start, or Social Security,
or Unemployment, or Medicaid, or Food Stamps, or on Disability,
Romney says TO HELL with all of us that are struggling to stay afloat,
to those in the Middle-class, and to those hoping to get there.
Romney says TO HELL with the “47% of America”-- the “losers”
that Romney so easily dismisses and disrespects as “dependents”.
Romney says TO HELL with the elderly, the hungry, the homeless, the helpless,
and the hopeless ...and to all the biblical “least of these”.
Does he even know the Christian New Testament?
Love thy neighbor? Hey Mitt, let’s be honest:
YOUR real god is money. YOUR saints are those
who have the most ...and TO HELL with the rest of us.
Romney complains that we’re shamelessly sponging off of him,
and off of all of his poor-poor-poor super-rich friends
.....all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this ELECTION,
.....all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this COUNTRY.
Trickle-down economics? Hey sure, why not - let them eat cake
they say. It’s all the same. Always has been.
It’s crumbs for us, and Cadillacs and 10 houses with car elevators,
and loopholes & lower taxes for them.
That is....if ......they, AND the bailed-out banks,
AND the big corporations pay ANY taxes at all.
When THEY get a break- they deserve it.
But if YOU get a break, it’s a handout. BULL!
Tell me - who are the REAL “takers”? Who are the REAL “makers”?
Who are the TRUE workers and the builders? Who are the REAL “victims” here?
And who’s in the Cayman Islands, trying to avoid taxes, and deducting his dancing horses?
Who gave their LIVES and limbs ...in unpaid and un-needed wars?
Whose sweat,.....on whose brows, has BUILT this great country?
Was it the Romney’s of this world ...or us?
But we still have a voice. It’s called our VOTE.
Loud and Clear -- Just say NO.
Say NO to Romney & Company ...and what they stand for.
This is STILL our country. Our children’s country.
And we mean to KEEP it that way. Period.
Romney should “self-deport” himself back to Mexico,
where his grandpa fled to avoid the U.S. marriage monogamy laws.
‘Cause Prince Mitt not only wants to kill the Dream Act,
but the American Dream as well.

And you know I don't honestly give a rats bung hole about abortion. I have a Spanish so I 'll never have an abortion.

79.5%= US Christians + Orthodox Jews = 84%

didn't say anything about making abortions illegal....just don't make those who have religious prohibitions pay for them.

If you are really so concerned, just how much of your income do you donate to women needing abortions ?

Christ spoke of charity....charity is voluntary, it is not a forced government program !

we need to be a compassionate society, but there is a difference between society and government.

government needs to allow the maximum personal responsibility, the maximum responsible freedom, while being efficient and the most cost effective.

We control the government...it does not (or should not) control us.

But then, we have this.
No, Bain Did Not Get a ‘Bailout’
http://www.nationalreview.com/exchequer/28792... #
We also have this.
A billionaire Chicago family that has donated and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for President Obama got a deal from the federal government to avoid paying all of a $460 million settlement it agreed to in the 2001 failure of a Chicago-area bank it owned, while 1,400 former depositors are still owed more than $10 million in lost savings.
And now, 11 years later, the prospect that any of the depositors will get their money back is bleak.
The Pritzker family, which made its fortune in hotels and manufacturing, agreed to a $460 million settlement offer in December 2001 to avoid sanctions and civil lawsuits in the failure of Superior Bank in Hinsdale, Ill.
But after paying $316 million of the interest-free debt, the family quietly struck a deal with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.(FDIC) in June 2011 to discount the balance in return for paying off the debt early.
“We have been stiffed again,” said Fran Sweet, 67, a depositor still owed $70,000.“It is a lot to lose. We are not wealthy people. We are white-collar and blue-collar workers who saved this money,[or] thought we saved this money.”

You propaganda puppy.

Bain was UNSUCCESSFUL and needed a government bailout. This is the story of the rightwing.

You pathologically lying, immoral, unethical, lazy leeches complain about government while you suck at the government teat and run to be government.

Look at the hero of the right. Paul Lying Scumbag Ryan took SS and has been a government employee for most of his adult working life. He is running against government even while running to be government. In fact, he is running for TWO, count them TWO, government jobs right now while he is already in a government job.

Bain Capital invests across a broad range of industry sectors and geographic regions. As of early 2012, the firm managed approximately $66 billion of investor capital across its various investment platforms.

Since inception it has invested in or acquired hundreds of companies including AMC Entertainment, Aspen Education Group, Brookstone, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino's Pizza, DoubleClick, Dunkin' Donuts, D&M Holdings, Guitar Center, Hospital Corporation of America , Sealy, The Sports Authority, Staples, Toys "R" Us, Warner Music Group and The Weather Channel.

Bain Capital was co- founded in 1984 by Mitt Romney, who was a graduate from Stanford University and Harvard University.

One of Bain's earliest and most notable venture investments was in Staples, by 1996, the company had grown to over 1,100 stores, and by 2008, over 2,000 stores Another very successful investment occurred in 1986 when they invested in a medical equipment maker Calumet Coach, which eventually created thousands of US jobs. Bain invested in its first fund in over twenty companies and by 1989 was generating an annualized return in excess of 50 percent. As CEO, Romney had the final approval say on every deal made.

In 1994, Bain acquired Totes, a producer of umbrellas and overshoes. Three years later, Totes, under Bain’s ownership, acquired Isotoner, a producer of leather gloves. Other notable Bain investments of the late 1990s included Sealy Corporation, the manufacturer of mattresses; Alliance Laundry Systems; Domino's Pizza, and Artisan Entertainment.

In 1994, Bain invested in Steel Dynamics, based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, a prosperous steel company that has grown to the fifth largest in the U.S.A, employs about 6,100 people, and produces carbon steel products with 2010 revenues of $6.3 billion on steel shipments of 5.3 million tons. In 1993, Bain acquired the Armco Worldwide Grinding System steel plant in Kansas City, Missouri and merged it with its steel plant in Georgetown, South Carolina to form GST Steel. Creating thousands of interrelated US jobs.

Bain's investment in Dade Behring represented a significant investment in the medical diagnostics industry. In 1994, Bain, completed a acquisition of Dade International, the medical diagnostics division of Baxter International, then merged the company with DuPont's in vitro diagnostics business. Also creating thousands of US jobs.

In 1999-2002: Romney departure and political legacy Romney took a paid leave of absence from Bain Capital in February 1999 when he became the head of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics, he served without pay, doing the work voluntarily.

In the early 2000s, Bain acquired Burger King . The firm's most notable investments in 2000 included the acquisition of Datek, as well as the acquisition of KB Toys from Consolidated Stores. Datek was ultimately merged with Ameritrade in 2002. KB Toys. In November 2003, Bain completed an investment in Warner Music Group. In 2004 Bain acquired the Dollarama chain of dollar stores. Bain led the buyout of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins. Which also provides thousands of US jobs.

The media spends an extreme amount of it's reporting on the 10 companies that Bain invested in that did not make it, they have ignored the numerous successful investment and thousands and thousands of US jobs and the millions of dollars paid out to pension funds and investors.
