I don't know, I kinda like it. Seeing right wing desperation is sort of entertaining.

Really?


Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

so your saying, even if nothing had happened in Bengazi.. He would have still made the same speech?

Or... This speech was because of Bengazi. Those are the two options here.

Crowley was the debate moderator, and as such, she was doing her job. Romney kept addressing Obama with questions, which he wasn't supposed to do under the term he himself agreed on before the debate. Not only did he confront Obama directly with questions, he goaded him and then cut him off, trying to stop Obama from answering the very questions he was pounding him with!

Additionally, Romney kept ignoring the time and going off topic.

Crowley did the right thing.

$16 trillion of deb, and THIS is what people focus on?

Why don't the American people discuss REAL policy and REAL issues that will affect ALL Americans?

Well done for playing the game, you're all falling for it.

Good point.! We should reduce spending by 3/4th and get out of every country, stop every war and focus on America.

The government should stop taxes on everyone and enable people to work, hire, invest once again.

But yet, that is taking a position.

Frankly, I believe all three of the "moderators" --perhaps more aptly called "liberal moderators," were biased. And I question how in the world did that happen? Where was somebody from the "right" side? How did the conservatives agree to these people?

Both sides agreed to each moderator.

he made his 9/11 speech on 9/11. And made a follow up speech the following day after our embaassy was attacked.. Keep in mind it happened overnight here.

The speech was about Benghazi. imho. Obviously he talks about 9/11 also. How could he not talk about 9/11/01 when something happened on its anniversary oversees?

hes dammed if he does, and dammed if he doesnt.

The irony of this situation is that the decision to place the liberal media "Whore of babylon" in charge of all of the debates has likely created exactly the opposite response the left was hoping to achieve. Watch the interviews with uncommitted/undecided voters after each debate... they have been turned off by the moderator pandering handed to Obama and Biden and have actually started to view Romney and Ryan in a more empathetic light because of the clearly biased moderation. THIS is why the GOP doesn't seriously call for a Hannity or an O'Reily to moderate these debates. In a sporting event, you always want the officials on your side... in a popularity contest, you always want the people on your side and the people usually line up behind whoever is facing steep odds, especially when the two men debating are so similar to each other in terms of honesty, substance, and status.

They also repeat the line that "it will be about the economy". If that's true Obama shouldn't have a chance in hell, yet they still support him while blaming everyone else for the economic troubles.


Every president blames his predecessor for the problems with the economy when they are in office. And 90% of the time it's true. Obama was handed a wrecked economy one that was in far worst shape than the one that was handed to Bush.

I just assume when somebody is speaking on TV they are lying to me and repeating "I hate you" over and over in their head.

Have yet to be proven wrong in that assumption.


Verily. It is pure death beaming. If ever anyone ascended, and then passed before a television monitor that was active, that person would know instantly that it is lies and more lies, with hatred on top.

There is no mistaking it. However, once one's brain is damaged by the conditioning, it progresses, encompassing every aspect of the victim's life. Those who know, know.

Then why oh why is "Candy Girl" saying different ?

Is CNN taking new "ordazz" from advertisers ?

The White House has been in panic mode for more than a month now.

Still no clear answers to the simple questions.

How convenient it has been to forget the Rombot's actions when this tragedy first hit the news. I certainly remember how within hours of the attack on the consulate, he staged his press conference for no other reason than to take more cheap shots at the president and to use this terrible tragedy only as a political tool. It was condemned the world over as an amateurish, selfish act and showed clearly his complete lack of expertise on how to handle foreign policy. Months previously, the Rombot also publicly stated his opposite views from the President that pursuing Bin Laden was not worth the effort, and NOW (?) he wants the American public to think he will be tough on terrorists.
THIS is the guy you want in charge? He only says what he thinks people want to hear, constantly changing his stance on issues as it suits the ONE, not five, goals he has been put in place to serve: to protect the "haves" from sharing with the "have-nots". It's that simple people. He has been bought and paid for by the elite 1% - the Koch brothers & power brokers that were behind that closed door..were you? And, if you are reading this, do not be misguided by the siren call of this hijacked "Republican" party; do not think for one second that you too are in the same country club party, that you are part of this elite group..because you are not. Unless of course you make millions per year and pay less in taxes percentage-wise than the 99% around you. They do not give one crap about you any more than the 47% they scorn behind closed doors. Yet in public, they smile and wave boys, smile and wave while you sail closer and closer to the rocks.
My prediction: just wait until the people start filing in to their precincts to vote. Does ANYONE remember the documentary on HBO showing clear evidence of tampering with the voting machines? Not the punch cards mind you, but the electronic ones that were hacked and helped George W. steal, er secure his presidency? Well, now that this bought and paid for "Republican" party is starting to sweat a bit, starting to think maybe you can't purchase an election so easy, then wait until the voting starts.
I wonder..just who manufactures, maintains and has access to these voting machines?..

The press conference in the Rose Garden was soley about the Benghazi attacks and the deaths of the 4 Americans.

He talks about Benghazi for most of his speech.

Funny how you snipped out the part in your quote about Benghazi

Just in case you forgot from the other thread where I posted this at least 5 times, here it is, once again.

Here is the opening of his speech in the Rose Garden on Sept. 12th.

www.whitehouse.gov...


Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya

Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.

Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.


And here are his closing remarks.


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.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.

Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.




Now, you can continue with your own intellectual dishonesty and try to claim he didn't call them acts of terror, but to try to knowingly spread false information by trying to suggest that the entire speech was just a standard 9/11 speech is disgusting beyond words.

These Americans that lost their lives mean nothing to you, do they? They are just another tool for you to use to attempt to bash Obama. So pathetic.

The thread title isn't misleading, it is an outright lie.

But what else should we expect from Romney supporters? Romney's whole campaign strategy is to lie, why would his supporters do anything different?
