See, this is why I keep saying the folks who don't want Obama re-elected need to quit posting stupid BS half-baked weakly supported conspiracy theories like the birth certificate, Muslim claims, and blatantly spun interpretations of his words.
YOU HAVE PLENTY OF *CREDIBLE* EXAMPLES OF WHY HE SUCKS! When you come at people with facts like this and leave out the high-fives and chest-thumping, people who support Obama will actually listen to you and maybe change their minds. They are never, ever going to change their minds when it feels like you're picking on Obama unfairly. People like myself, who used to be head-over-heels for him in 2008, are only going to wake up when they are shown respect and are given a sincere and genuine argument free from unnecessary snark and partisanship. You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

So lets timeline this.
Video comes out.
A few weeks later (9/11) some protests in Cairo occur.
Because of a protest in Egypt, a "spontaneous" planned attack occurs in Libya.
Did I get that right?
Because before the video came out, I ate a BLT in public.
I eat a BLT
Video comes out.
Protests on 9/11 happen in Egypt
A planned Al Qeida attack on embassy staff in Libya.
(So if I would have had the turkey on rye, this would have never had happened!)

And electing a business man like Romney is a great idea. Bush Jr. was a business/oil man, and look how well that went.
The State Department is claiming that they are upset that CNN didn’t respect Stevens’s privacy, but what they’re really upset about is that CNN exposed that Hillary Clinton is responsible for Ambassador Stevens’s death by not providing him adequate security despite his concerns…
White House Comes Clean: No Protest Outside Libya Consulate
Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Thursday that the “entire reason” the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans has “become the political topic it is” is because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talk about the attack.
STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing......
Cutter: Benghazi Is Only an Issue ‘Because of Romney and Ryan’
The Romney campaign responded to Cutter’s remark in a statement Thursday afternoon:
“President Obama’s campaign today said that Libya is only an issue because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. They’re wrong. The reason it is an issue is because, for the first time since 1979, an American ambassador was assassinated and President Obama’s foreign policy strategy of ‘leading from behind’ is failing. This administration has continually misled the American public about what happened in Benghazi and, rather than be truthful about the sequence of events, has instead skirted responsibility and dodged questions. The American people deserve straight answers about this tragic event and a president who can provide leadership, not excuses.”
