Emanuel should go over in Obama's old neighborhood, and count the dead children. He cannot do a damn thing about the black on black death zones in Chicago, because the Democrats need those gangbangers to get out the vote.

Rohm Emanuel is wrong and deceitful in his lame effort to defend the President who cover up the tragic desertion of US Ambassador and three CIA Operators and let them die by al Qaida terrorists’ attack on 9/11/12 by refusing any military help by the president to Ambassador Stevens and to US Seals Tyrone Wood and Dorothy during 8 hours of attack with RPGs which is despicable act of Obama and Panetta. Emanuel said that Obama promised to investigate what happened almost two month ago and also promised to bring the al Qaida terrorist to trial which Obama never done to the terrorists of Gitmo that he release to freedom. Emanuel is wrong because Obama sympathizes with the Mozlem Brother terrorists of Libya that he called “Rebels” when they helped Obama killing Gaddafi and he denied three desperate calls for US Military and CIA help under attack and under fire of al Qaida terrorists during 8 hours when US military was eager to save the lives of Americans under attack. The American people derive to know before the elections what was the role of Obama is denying the three desperate calls for help from our American heroes under fire of the Mozlem Brother terrorists and allowing the terrorists killing our US heroes and torturing them during hours in the streets of Benghazi and painting the walls of US Embassy with the blood of Americans. Obama promised to go after the terrorists that he sympathizes with is baseless and worthless because Obama could save the lives of four American heroes and refused to do that.

May God deliver us from this evil.

According to Sharia, it is a capital crime for a Muslim individual or leader to shoot at fellow Muslims -- even Islamists -- for the purpose of protecting Americans. That would make Obama a violator of Sharia and an apostate.

If Obama considers himself a Muslim and wears an Islamic ring (which he does, it has an arabic inscription and call to Allah), then he must have had a very hard time deciding on how to protect the consulate without killing Muslim attackers.

His solution? Settling for the lesser of two evils: getting Muslims, in the form of Libyan security, to guard the property and in this way, forcing Muslims to shoot other Muslims in order to defend the consulate. But that plan was useless because even the Muslim guards had to follow Sharia, and ran away and left the Americans to be killed rather than violate Sharia themselves by killing other Muslims. Obama gambled with the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others and left them as sacrificial lambs rather than violate the dictates of Sharia.

Sharia law states: "Lying is OBLIGATORY if the purpose is obligatory."

That brings us to the current debacle in Libya, which can only be understood if we grasp Obama's worldviews as regards the "Muslim World." Nothing in Obama's world is the fault of Islam, which is why he ordered the Fort Hood massacre to be classified as "workplace violence" and not Islamic terrorism.

Hussein Obama feels that he can serve Islam best if he denies his being a Muslim for the purpose of a higher aspiration to serve the Muslim world from the White House, in Islamic terms the "higher jihad."

Obama has no problem whatsoever in lying for the sake of "Hope and Change" since lying about being a Muslim in a majority non-Muslim country is allowed under Islam. Lying for the purpose of jihad (known as "taqqiya") is not only allowed, but an obligation to be proud of and even serves as a reason to blame the enemies of Islam for one's lies.

I noted a while back that the best indicator of the state of the race in the final days was to see which states were becoming competitive. When a candidate's "safe" states suddenly look more competitive, that candidate is in trouble. If your opponent's "safe" states are more competitive, then you are gathering momentum.
The upper Midwest has always been a solid block for the Democrats. This year, however, it may very well bring the Obama presidency to a swift end.

A new poll released this morning by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune finds the race essentially tied. Obama holds a slim 3-point lead but, at 47% support, is below the critical 50% threshold.

To be fair, Minnesota wasn't really part of Obama's firewall for his reelection hopes. It was more of a redoubt. It was state, like California or Illinois, which would absolutely support Obama's reelection. That we are even discussing the possible vote in MN, just a little over a week before the election, is a flashing sign of the troubles plaguing Obama's campaign.

Last month, the newspaper's poll showed Obama with an 8-point lead. But that 5-point drop in support isn't the worst news for Obama in the poll. The number of voters identifying themselves as Republican has surged. In last month's poll, Democrats had a 13-point edge in the sample, 41-28. Today's poll, however, only gives them a 5-point edge, 38-33. An 8-point swing in one month is extraordinary.

I am sticking my neck out here,But here it is IMHO!!

If any one is still curious re why Obama was not questioned by Romney
heres the real reasons...My source reveals the issue is Classified and
also of real Embarrassment to the Oval Offices.This was obviously a
question of why the Ambassador was in Benghazi at the worst possible
time 9/11 for any Americans to be in the Middle East?

The US,and the UK,were engaged in a covert operation concerning the
whereabouts of arms supplied to Libyan Rebels by the US,during the
Overthrow of Ghaddafi? Also the quest was tied to a Meeting with
the Turkish Govt,To expedite the transfer of the Weapons in question
to Syria,by Turkey,Leaving Obamas,and his Admin with clean hands as
it was Election time??

The investigation by Pickering,who incidentally has a Pro Iran record
among other issues..is an absolute Sham..Buying time for the Election
to be concluded etc..IMHO,Romney was informed it was a Classified issue
and he would be endangering Personel,and the entire operation by his
pressuring the POTUS,about what really took place.Forcing the POTUS
to either reveal it was a Clandestine Op,by the CIA,that failed,or
for the POTUS,to continue to lie about the facts of the matter????

"Secretary of Defense Panetta explained that this passivity was in keeping with a rule of warfare.“A basic principle,” he said on October 25,“is you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on — without having some real-time information about what’s taking place.”

Rarely has a spontaneous mob so thoroughly intimidated our nation. And so much for sending our squads out every day in Afghanistan on patrol, when they don’t know what’s going on. The next time a platoon is told to take an objective, some corporal will say,“SecDef says we don’t have to go into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.”

Surely it is in the president’s best interests to release a copy of his order, which the military would have sent to hundreds in the chain of command. And if the president did not direct the NSC “to do whatever we need to do,” then who was in charge? When the American ambassador is attacked and remains out of American hands for over seven hours as a battle rages — and our military sends no aid — either the crisis-response system inside the White House is incompetent, or top officials are covering up."

this is sickening. No wonder there have been 2x as many soldiers killed under Obama.

Amb. Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Ty Woods went thru 7 Hours of Hell, Obama watched, slept, then partied in Vegas.

Tom Collin, member of 101st: The President says he wants to have an investigation. We don’t need an investigation. The President knows what he was doing from 4-10PM Eastern time on September 11th. We know what he was doing for some of that. He was in the White House with the Secretary of Defense. He was also on the phone with Benjamin Netanyahu, who of all people would understand the need to get off the phone when you’re under attack. We had calls of distress from Tyrone Woods, the ex-SEAL, who was a CIA operative on the ground at the CIA annex in Benghazi, who was requesting air assets, and then requesting military backup. Now there was a security team that moved from Tripoli to Benghazi. I believe that that was authorized by the CIA and within their rules of engagements. But to move military assets from Italy into Libya, which is almost as close as Tripoli was to Benghazi, would require, obviously, approval of the Department of Defense. And I doubt that the Department of Defense would deny or grant such a request without taking it directly to the President. You’re talking about moving military assets into a sovereign country. So we need to know when the President was briefed on the situation in Benghazi, what the military proposed to do, what the President did in response to that briefing, because Hugh, here’s the reporting, and no one’s denied this reporting. Tyrone Woods used a ground laser designator to illuminate an enemy mortar team. For all those veterans out there, you know that infrared discipline in combat is just as important as light and noise discipline. You don’t use an infrared illuminator until you’re ready for fire support. Tyrone Woods is a Navy SEAL. A private in the infantry knows not to do that. He would not have illuminated that mortar team unless he expected air fire immediately as soon as he did so. I strongly suspect there was an armed drone, or even a Specter gunship overhead that did not fire, even though Tyrone Woods expected it to.

“I’ve got a pretty good mix. I’ve got old school. Stevie Wonder and James Brown. I’ve got Rolling Stones. Bob Dylan. And then I’ve got everything from Jay-Z to Eminem to the Fugees to you name it,” Obama told DJ E.J. Greig of Cincinnati’s 101.1
