Slaves2Darkness: Other then then that who gives a shiat?

then then? you mean than?

libya is important for several reasons. one, because it supplies a lot of oil to our trading partners in europe, italy especially. two, libya and its north african neighbors could be useful as moderate, democratic islamic nations when it comes time to stand up to iran (or saudi arabia). three, anytime people rise up against dictatorship, we have a moral duty to support them. and four, as with egypt, they are a new country - if we fail to support them in their infancy, they could deteriorate into a failed state and become a haven for terrorists.

Every once in a while... every once in a while, there's a day with an absolute right and an absolute wrong, but those days almost always include body counts. Other than that, there aren't very many unnuanced moments in leading a country that's way too big for ten words. I'm the President of the United States, not the President of the people who agree with me. And by the way, if the left has a problem with that, they should vote for somebody else.

This "weak" Obama who is the same guy Republicans were crying about a year ago about his action in Libya saying he didn't have authority to use force and we should stay out of it right?

Just checking.

FTA: "Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later," Obama said. "And as president, one of the things I've learned is you can't do that-it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them."

Maybe President Obama can have a beer summit with Amb. Stevens' widow and his killers. Kaliber for the murderers, of course -- we wouldn't want to offend.

Schake, who also served on George W. Bush's National Security Council. "That said, the president's leadership has been deficient in aligning America with the forces of democratic change in the Middle East."

Holy crap.

I am working from home and have the news on as background noise.

Mitt Romney is giving a campaign speech right now, and he's smiling and being glib while talking about the people who were killed in the attack, and just said "I would offer a moment of silence, but one gentleman doesn't want to be silent, so we'll just keep on going" while basking in people chanting his name.

Holy crap. I cannot believe I just saw/heard that.

This man is terrifying.

"I've said for three-and-a-half years the president doesn't care about national security. He doesn't think the world is terribly threatening," former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton

This man doesn't know what an Ambassador does.....which is why he is a former one. The NeoCons in the GOP place war mongers in these roles because of their close ties with DoD contractors. They want international relations in chaos because it makes them rich.

I'm beginning to suspect that somewhere this election season, someone came along and said:

"I'm tired of working for candidates who make me think that I should be embarrassed to believe what I believe, Sam! I'm tired of getting them elected! We all need some therapy, because somebody came along and said, "'Liberal' means soft on crime, soft on drugs, soft on Communism, soft on defense, and we're gonna tax you back to the Stone Age because people shouldn't have to go to work if they don't want to!" And instead of saying, "Well, excuse me, you right-wing, reactionary, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-education, anti-choice, pro-gun, Leave It To Beaver trip back to the Fifties...!", we cowered in the corner, and said, "Please. Don't. Hurt. Me." No more."

Mr Romney has botched this campaign so badly that I'm waiting for him to channel former BP CEO Tony Hayward and let slip a "I want my life back" comment.

Bill Kristol, the editor of the "Weekly Standard" and a critic of Romney's decision to overlook Afghanistan in his acceptance speech at last month's GOP convention, wrote on his blog that it's fair to question "the timing and tone" of Romney's statement Tuesday night.

When Bill Kristol says anything negative about his team, it's over.

Well, I'm not going to negotiate with anyone who holds a gun to my head. We had a deal. I don't care if my approval ratings drop into single digits. I am the President of the United States, and I will leave the government shut down until we come to an equitable agreement

John Bolton is more of a threat to America than bin Laden.

I was watching a television program before, with a kind of roving moderator who spoke to a seated panel of young women who were having some sort of problem with their boyfriends - apparently, because the boyfriends had all slept with the girlfriends' mothers. And they brought the boyfriends out, and they fought, right there on television. Toby, tell me: these people don't vote, do they?

SphericalTime: Really? It was "and you get tax cuts, and you get tax cuts, and YOU get tax cuts . . ." for me.

true, but the President really didn't come out swinging until Romney tried to drag him down with the attack on an embassy and then smiled as he talked about it

Four point two million new jobs, that wasn't good? Bailed out Europe, increased foreign trade, 30 million new acres of land for conservation, put Sotomayor on the bench, we're not fighting a war, I've raised two children... that's not enough to buy me out of the doghouse? Haec credam a deo pio? A deo iusto? A deo scito? Cruciatus in crucem! Tuus in terra servus nuntius fui officium perfeci. Cruciatus in crucem. Eas in crucem!
