Fail #1 if you are saying the media is over hyping sandy, even after the destruction and deaths we know of so far, then you are down playing the storm.

Fail #2 With your history at political trolling, i think anyone who has been at ATS for a bit knows whats going on.

Anger-angry-angerous!

I simply ask a question. And I get deflection, obfuscation and an attack on me.

I wouldnt say its an attack on you, though we all make a reputation and that tends to follow us. All of life tends to work like that.

And like i said, considering none of us know the FACTS on libya yet whatever question you asked slanted from the very start.. Wouldnt you say?

My point.


Which mean's he's camping at the White House because he's seen the numbers? Planning nefarious schemes?
Hatching evil plots? Playing RISK (and calling it foreign policy?)

We know people died on 9/11.
We know the Consulate burned on 9/11.

And we know on 9/12 he was eating a great buffet, hittin' the slots, and probably catching a show! (Did Sigfried and Roy retire?)

I do believe it is a last ditch effort to appear presidential. He did go to Vegas the day after the embassy attacks. Remember, there was more than one embassy attacked that day. He CHOSE to campaign instead of staying in D.C. and address the issue at hand. And even with the hurricane, he did come to D.C. but sent Clinton out to campaign in his place, which to me shows exactly how he feels about the nation as a whole.

So far you are complaining that Obama was on the campaign trail in election season when a spontaneous attack happened and would be over before he could get to Washington. Compared to being at the White House for a storm we knew about days in advance and everyone was getting ready for?

Lets face it, the only real issue you have is its showing Obama in a better light and its bad for the right wingers.

I think it's likely that he is in the White House because it's a centralised location from the Government point of view and that makes it the perfect place to assemble the folks that he needs to advise him.

That said, I'm a Scotsman living among the English, so what I know about the US Government could probably fit on the back of a small postage stamp.

Nope. What is the presidents role in a crisis?

Vegas?
White House?

I wish someone would supply an answer.

(other than the ones gratefully provided!)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Obama was in D.C. at the whitehouse the day the attacks happened. It was the next day when he went to Vegas. And it wasn't a spontaneous attack. It was a planned terrorist attack.

Insult to injury.....

Then you cant say that is "fact" eh? Which comes again to the point that we dont know what happened in Libya to speculate yet, you me or anyone else.

As far as we are concerned it was spontaneous (IE we didnt expect it) For how ever much it was planned hard to say, considering they used the protests jumping off in other nations around the middle east to help cover it and those protests where fairly spontaneous as far as we know... Hard tos ay exactly what level of planning there was before hand, though i am sure we will all know more eventually.
