i suppose you can't find one either, huh? why is it so hard for all you to find one single fact on this issue that backs up your wishes? just one single one....
Fact #1: Every person who voted for obama is in denial of reality and ignoring the fact that obama and his administration has done nothing but lie for the last 4 years.
How many more facts do you need before you are able to see the light?
Fact #2: If you havn't noticed by now chances are you never will.
Fact #3: I am not a racist but obama and his team are sure tempting me to become one. I wouldn't do that though because I love my wife too much and I have too much respect for the conservative black Americans who know and speak the truth.

Obama is an ingrate. After Candy rode to the debate on top of his car, then Pearl Harbored Romney, you would think the least Obama could do would be to bail out Hostess. Candy has been on a two day crying jag.

US ‘too slow’ to act as drone’s cam captured Libya horror
By TIM PERONE

The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

“They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.

The network reported that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the hours-long siege on Sept. 11 — obtaining information that should have spurred swift action.

But as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three colleagues were killed by terrorists armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Defense Department officials were too slow to send in the troops, Berntsen said.

“They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen,” he fumed.

“There isn’t a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments.”

The Pentagon said it moved a team of special operators from Central Europe to Sigonella, Italy — about an hour flight from Libya — but gave no other details.

Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network.

When the attack began, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta “looked at available options, and the ones we exercised had our military forces arrive in less than 24 hours, well ahead of timelines laid out in established policies,” a White House official told the network.

Even as the administration continues to vow that the perpetrators will be brought to justice, the man identified by witnesses as a ringleader in the attack continues to walk the streets of Libya without fear of arrest.

Ahmad Abu Khattala has admitted being at the consulate during the horrific attack but has yet to be questioned by any Libyan authorities.

Abu Khattala spoke to a New York Times reporter Thursday from a hotel patio as he sipped a strawberry frappe and mocked the US and Libyan governments.

“These reports say that no one knows where I am and that I am hiding,” he boasted.“But here I am in the open, sitting in a hotel with you. I’m even going to pick up my sister’s kids from school soon.”

Lax security at the consulate was an open secret.

SO that is what you are doing? Maybe Obama will see the light and be for Americans, but I doubt it as it appears he running down the road to his personal destruction of America.

Yes, they have used the teleporter that Reagan invented and paid for back in the 80's and had installed at every USMC base around the world!

Check any of the threads on this topic...i've been on them since day one showing you fools what is true and what you've been lied to about.

the pentagon timelines talked about state department procedures previous to the attack? Really? do you even have te slightest clue as to what you are talking about? It's no surprise you are so easily lied to...

Crowlet didn't save anything. She knew she helped create what the MSM would characterize as the defining moment of the debate. She knew her liberal collegues would pound Romney with what she helped to create. She was far from an objective moderator. But having said that, Romney was getting alot of bad advise from the neocons that control his party. Stupidity, like their new idiotic idea for supporting amnesty, flows from their mouths far too often. Romney got whupped and If they don't take control of that party from neocon idiots like Bush, Boehner, Graham, Toomey, McConnel etc. etc, they're going to continue to get whupped, in spite of the ridiculous positions of the Ds. Both parties suck. If you don't believe that, just wait and see the bogus fix they come up with for our finances. The great majority of them are gutless weasels.

But the attack happened at night. You wouldn't expect a good union man like Obama to get out of bed and go back to work when his shift for the day was over.
