You'll be much better off to stay away from USA. UK has much more to offer. Yes, definitely it will be best for you to totally avoid USA.

That dirty filthy liberal lying pig from Gubmint CNN news should have never been allowed to moderate the debate. The good thing is she inadvertently shone a huge spotlight on the Benghazi lies of Obama and will probably have to roll with that(And I do mean Roll) as an exposer of Obama's lies and hidden agendas to save her career(what's left of it). She has absolutely helped the republican party with her obvious prejudices coupled with stupidly and arrogance. Gubmint news. Do we really need it?
Feel free to study what the president did and said after Benghazi. Then let the impeachment begin.

BTW, just so idiot Righties know she's lying, here's what Mittens falsely claimed:
"I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror."
Here's what Mr. Obama said in the Rose Garden the NEXT DAY AFTER THE ATTACKS:
"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."
And here's what Mittens the anti-American partisan twat said after the attacks:
"It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."
Which was an outrageous lie, of course.
And finally, the fact check:

Final proof that lying Righties like Rubin are going to lie no matter what the facts are.
It does help for you to read all of your links. But I guess libs obsess on words like binders. Anybody with intelligence would have known that Romney was referring to binders of women's resumes, but that would mean one would have to think first and stop playing gotcha games because you have nothing else. Check this out:
"Two days later, Carney responded bluntly to a question about why Obama had not labeled the incident a terrorist attack.

"I think you're misunderstanding something here," Carney said. "I'm the president's spokesman. When the head of the National Counterterrorism Center, Matt Olsen, in open testimony in Congress, answered a question by saying yes, by the definitions we go by -- this is me paraphrasing -- this was a terrorist attack -- I echoed that, because this president, this administration, everybody looks to the intelligence community for the assessments on this. And it has been since I said so, the president's position that this was a terrorist attack."

The conclusion: Romney's precise comment was false. Obama did describe the killings in Benghazi as an act of terror twice in the two days after the attack. In an interview two weeks after the incident, though, he appeared to reserve judgment, and some Obama administration officials, including Carney and Rice, suggested in the days after the attack that the United States had no indication that it was a planned assault."

Misspoke? She lied, and so did the President. Did he apologize for lying? Of course not. Do they not understand the truth is a click away, and every word out of their mouths is being checked? Romney is now being declare the winner of the second debate as well.
No one expects Obama to aplogize for anything as he rather blame Bush and the Republicans for all his failures.

CNN Anchor Slammed Over Twisting of Obama Statement on Libya....

"Don't mess with John Sununu... at least if you don't come armed with the facts. That's what CNN's Soledad O'Brien found out when she tried to imply that Mitt Romney erred at Tuesday night's debate when he called out Barack Obama over the attacks in Benghazi, Libya."

No he did not. He made a vague reference to acts of terror. However, significantly, his first reference was to denigrating Islam. Then, he spent two weeks validating Muslim mob violence and murder by continuing to lie and having all his spokespeople continue to lie about a movie clip enraging Muslims (as if that somehow justifies their murders.) He even sent his UN representative Rice to repeat the same lie before the world. These continued lied then inflamed Muslims worldwide to more murders.

in reality you should be blaming congress about the state of the economy when bush's term was over. bush had been asking for housing reform since 2003, but the overwhelming democratic majority congress wanted to give more people houses they could not afford. then frank-dodd came about.....then......recession.

Dear, intelligent people with half brain can watch and read the transcript in the Rose Garden when the President was speaking about the Embassy attack and used the words "acts of terror">

I believe a second grader would have understood his words.

If you can honestly (repeat honestly) say that (1) Bush left his presidency with our country in good shape and (2) the republicants have put country first during this administatration and not their "one term president" mantra then we can continue your frightwing mantra.

Bush has so much on his plate....two wars plus much of the responsibility for everything else, including the mortgage crisis and incredible job losses.....You cannot blame Obama, if you can't take responsibility for Bush's damage.....

the mortgage crisis? the one that was already happening prior to Bush taking office....the very same crisis Bush wanted to avert and get congress to address as early as 2003? the enactment of frank-dodd by the democratic congress that forced companies to stop hiring? not blaming obama for that.........but i will blame congress that ultimately holds the purse strings and the pen that write the laws of the land..........and i will blame obama for not doing a thing to ameliorate the problems......in 4 years he has accomplished nothing aside from putting us deeper in debt and placing more people on unemployment and food stamps. heck.....i could have done as much on my own.

It is Barack who played games with the public, not making it immediately clear that Benghazi was organized terror that started much earlier than a vid, and then going on more popular show circuits to reach more audiences than a speech to deny that it was terrorism.

He played the games. It is fair game now and absolutely necessary to point out the bastard incumbent's devious ways.
