You don't speak for the American people, who "knew" no such thing. It is only CLAIMED that this was a "terrorist attack," and it remains unproven. IF it was, and IF there were warnings, that should of course be investigated. Obama is obviously not to blame since it's not his personal job to gather the intel and hand out warnings here, but the State Department's.
Your "affirmative action" quip is simply race-baiting, typical of your kind. Your own incompetence is all too obvious.

I know you can't spin it any other way. YOu hate Obama and want him out of office, plain and simple.

But at least we now know that by your own logic, you blame Bush for the 9/11 attacks and every act of terror against the U.s. and its troops from 2001-2009. That's something, I guess...:)

Georgia crackuhs think that black people should be SERVING the champagne, not partying with it. They see African-Americans as witless drunks and party animals, prisoners of their own desires, incapable of thought or intelligent action.

Sadly, they're stupidly racist, wrong, and out-of-date. Black Americans have long ago surpassed these racist stereotypes.

Poor, poor crackuhs...

What is credible is that Obama and Hillary both failed to act intelligently in regard to these unfortunately victims of Islam terrorists (on the anniversary of 911 no less).

Obama was too busy following his beloved "hip-hop" couple, golfing, eating lobster dinners, and talking to multi-millionaire talk show hosts in order to have a "sit down" with his daily foreign intelligence staff members (Clint's "empty chair" speech rings all too true now).

Hillary, on the other hand, has further proven both her utter incompetence in foreign affairs and her total disregard for the U.S. citizens that she swore to serve and protect.

Btw harvey, I notice that you post the same old and tired lib propaganda for a few days, followed by Barbara for a few days, followed by Responsibility for a few days, followed by Pay That Ceo for a few days, followed by Mr_Bill for a few days, etc, etc, ad nauseam.

You then attempt to cover your all too transparent act by accusing others of being "trolls."

Your response to the truth in what I've said will predictably include name-calling and more one-sided political propaganda.

Meanwhile, Obama is spending time looking at images of his beloved "hip-hop" stars, while you're probably fawning over images of your beloved Obama...

Maybe they have in Ohio, but not here in Jawga....in yesterdays news, there were 2 diffent incidents of 'african american' high school students bringing loaded guns to school...one was a girl...and the 3rd incident, and at a 3rd school the school security guard had his leg broken breaking up a brawl...these are schools that just a few years ago were model schools, now they have gone completely ghetto. These schools are so rough the school newspaper has an obituary section.

Worthless Rightie rubbish and propaganda. You don't deserve serious answers to your idiotic, anti-American, Obama-hating posts. Hell, you can't even write English very well, can you?

Pathetic and anti-American. Get lost.

No of course Obama is not to blame. To blame him would be racist. of course, not attending in person your daily security briefs might be a start. He's only been doing that for about four days. If he had been attending his PDBs in person he might have heard from people whose job it is to give him intelligence about the danger coming like the 2 day warning he got from Egypt and Libya, but no, Obama worshipers would never blame the Commander in Chief. That would be silly.

I don't hate Obama... I don't know him to hate him. Besides that, I don't hate anyone! I do not like his policies but that is a far cry for hating him. He's the Commander in Chief and ultimately responsible! So yes, Bush was the Commander in Chief and was ultimately responsible! Just like a CEO of a failed company, they are untimately responsible!

At least Bush didn't turn his head and blame terrorist attacks on workplace violence or a stupid amateur movie trailer on You Tube.

When have i ever used the word "trolls"? if you have to openly lie about what others say, you really have no cogent argument, do you?

How credible was this warning? Did the state department that issued it recomend any exctra security or evacuation? how many warning like this happen weekly?

you are blinded by your ignorance and partisanship, or both...

It's his job to listen to the briefings every day....it's his job to realize that a consulate in Libya should have more protection than 2 ex-seals....It's definitely NOT his job to apologize for everything American. It's not his job to try to smooze the citizens of America by lying about this attack. It was finally admitted this morning that this was a terrorist attack...oops a pall on the election.

First, you would need to provide some facts as to why you consider me a 'lefty' to show htat you are able to discern facts inteligently, and second, what makes you think the state dept. and others were not aware of the calender date?

what makes you think he does not listen to the briefings everyday? We have technology in this day and age that makes face to face meetings not always necessary.

The Libyan embassy DID have f=ore protection than two ex navy seals.

When has Obama apologized for everything american?

Do you have any real facts to spew out?

I can't believe it took the President, and the State Department nearly 2 weeks to determine the 9-11 attack was a terrorist attack. Maybe they were drunk, they spend a lot of time partying.

Dumb strawman, nothing to do with what I said. Blame Obama OR his administration, but be fair about it, don't just make stupid stuff up.

And you STILL haven't proven that Obama, or ANYONE, got a "2 day warning."

Start with that.

No one has conclusively demonstrated that yet, actually. But you'll continue to lie and slander, because, well, that's what you DO.
