It's slowing emerging that the attack that killed our ambassador was not just some mob upset by a silly internet video. Obama's victory dance on Osama's grave seems to have been interrupted by a successful surprise attack by Al Qaeda, which means they're a lot stronger than Obama thought. How can you be caught with your pants down when it's 9-frikin-11 AND your people are in an Arab country? That's just inexcusable and shameful.

Yet we're asked to believe that Obama has a handle on Iran's atomic bomb. He got easily fooled by Al Qaeda. How much more easily could he be misled by a large country like Iran, with a lot more resources than a terrorist group? It's obvious now that Obama is not on top of things.

He needs to go.

I understand enough not to reelect a communist, who has not told one truth since he was sworn in in January 2009. He is a disgusting little man who never should have been elected in the first place. He is totally unqualified.

Democrats cannot find anything on Squeeky Clean Romney, so they make things up. The American people have come to the conclusion they cannot take any more corruption, and are ready to send the corrupt politicians back to Chicago. Enough already.

I'm sure it's "squeeky [sic] clean" to you that he was a bully in private school, mistreated a family pet, ran a company that killed American jobs or moved them abroad, enthusiastically supported a healthcare reform he now hypocritically attacks, and does all he can to avoid paying taxes while demanding that poor and lower middle-class people pay more or be considered 'lazy.' And those are just off the top of my head.

if only there were something in the top of YOUR head...:)

No Harvey. See what happened in H S was acceptable in his H S and before political correctness. It was called growing up. Everyone did something silly. Ask Obama what his daddy did to Missionalies. He made missionary stew.

The Cat Hag attacks her own President while blessing the President of a foreign country where Americans were murdered. She's admitted she's a traitor and hates America. Case closed. Deport her.

I have no doubt that beating up 'fairies' was acceptable in your school, if you went to one, but it's not acceptable to normal people. Romnuts is a privileged little brat, grew up that way, and has always acted accordingly. He neither knows nor cares about the ordinary person or American worker. That's why he was good with sending their jobs overseas.

Vote for him if you hate America, racist hag.

I will vote for Romney to save America. Obama is a sociopath. Did you see him when they brought back the dead from Benghazi? A passionless, emotionless sociopath. He is the enemy. He lied to save his alQaeda buddies. Romney is leading by 14 points among the middle class. 14 points, and you think there is enough poor, and unfortunate to over come that number? No, there is not. And who do you think the rich will vote for?

Every word you say is a lie, hag. You're beginning to hallucinate, I'm guessing as a result of exposure to the fumes from the thousands of cats filling your run-down hovel.

I have no doubt whatsoever that your hatred of Obama is based in your racism, either. I'm sure all black Americans are "the enemy" to you. You're an evil, evil person.

On the off-chance that you're serious, I'll say this:

The Obama administration wasn't sure who was responsible for the attack that killed the Ambassador, and assumed it was a mob action of the kind we've seen in other Arab and Muslim countries, which seemed reasonable. I haven't seen proof that it was a coordinated terrorist attack, but that's certainly possible.

As to Mittens, he simply lied based on inadequate information. He took the statement by the Egyptian embassy criticizing the release of the anti-Muslim film and used that as a bases for the slanderous claim that Obama was "in league with America's enemies." Then he found out that Obama in fact harshly criticized the attack in Libya and demanded justice for the killings which took place there. He deserved the criticism he got, and the reTHUGlican attacks on Obama are merely pushback, their effort to distract people from Romney's horrific mistake.

FWIW

don't argue with Harvey, you'll have better luck if you find yourself a wooden indian and argue with him instead. You might even be able to pursuade the indian to change his mind, which will never happen with Harvey.
