...therefore Romney is automatically president and Fartbongo gets sent to The Hague.

This is front page news for Fox News.

Who farking cares? Jesus, enough already.

Hey, I know! Let's trot out those poor embassy corpses again!

Give it up shiatmitter - you're never going to make Benghazi happen.
 
2012-11-05 10:30:54 AM  
And by Wednesday, FOX will forget they ever ran with this story.

Keep it up. There's only one more day to piss on the graves of the dead for political gain, GOP.

What am I missing here? Where's the smoking gun in that article?

Remember when people got tired of Rudy Giuliani dry-humping the corpses of 9-11 victims for political gain?

It's Fox News. They just need to make the conclusion for the readers. They don't need to support it.

My question is what does it matter what label was put on it? Does that change anything? Calling it an act of terror or a demonstration or a basket of puppies doesn't really change anything does it?

Is it terrible of me that I just don't care anymore about Benghazi? I mean, it sucks that people died...but it's not anything new. How many embassies were attacked during the Bush years? Clinton years? I just can't be outraged at this. More important matters exists in my world.
 
2012-11-05 10:50:02 AM  
Frankly, I was more outraged by Obama's shameless use of spicy mustard and arugula.
 
2012-11-05 10:50:15 AM  
See, he said "act of terror" not "act of terrorism".

THIS MEANS SOMETHING

Its basically the most recent thing that The President had no control over that the GOP can desperately spin to make it seem like he dropped the ball on.

Im sure the GOP wishes more people had died.

Oh, and Milhouse says that Benghazi still isn't a scandal.

That mass of bloody feathers is not even holding together anymore.

They can't even explain in one factual sentence what Obama did wrong.

This is how you do it:

- Reagan traded arms to terrorists for hostages
- Dubya lead the Nation to war based on lies
- Cheney outed an active CIA agent because they embarrassed the Administration

What did Obama do? Government officials handled some communication poorly immediately following the murder of American diplomats while Romney was politicizing it?

Or, Obama did not fight the GOP hard enough on their attempts to reduce Embassy security around the world?

Or, bought a Chevrolet Volt for the Vienna Embassy?

Attributed violent riots to a video (as opposed presumably to a valid reason for violence)?

Did Obama apologize for the 1st Amendment?

Well, at least it'll be over something seemingly legitimate, rather than a blow job.

I'm certainly already hearing it from my Rush-parroting friends. I think it's being moved to the top of the talking points list for after the election.

For the life of me, I still don't even understand what this conspiracy even is. What's the accusation? That Obama...described the situation wrongly?

They desperately need something to make Obama seem bad, so they're ghoulishly parading the corpses of Americans around. Dead Americans are little more than political props for the GOP.

As near as I can tell, the GOP is mad that there wasn't any riots in Benghazi. Or Obama doesn't understand the true/valid motivation around the attacks?

All we know for sure is that all these Fox viewers who probably don't even know where the fark Libya is, are really upset about this.

This has got to be one of the biggest pieces of bullshiat manufactured wanna-be gotcha phony outrage garbage stories I have ever been witness to. Usually I can find some thread where I can kind of see where someone might think something is something (if that makes any sense), but this?

Jesus, what complete and utter nonsense.
 
2012-11-05 12:20:24 PM  
So, the newly revealed part is this?

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it's too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.


Seriously, what the fark am I missing?

Also, the next answer seems to further enforce the idea that the administration said publicly that this was a terrorist attack.

As I said, we're still investigating exactly what happened, I don't want to jump the gun on this. But your right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is there are folks involved in this. Who were looking to target Americans from the start.

I mean, right there. Just because he doesn't say "it was a terrorist attack" doesn't mean that isn't what he's saying. He said it wasn't the same as in Egypt and that it was targeted against Americans.

Funny. Because they would otherwise have a pretty straightforward impeachment case in terms of keeping GITMO open. SCOTUS has already ruled on this being against the Constitution.

jchic: My question is what does it matter what label was put on it? Does that change anything? Calling it an act of terror or a demonstration or a basket of puppies doesn't really change anything does it?


Excellent question. I know the answer. Let me see if you can figure it out. Why is the Obama admin so insistent they did call it an act of terror?

If what they called it isn't a big deal, they could just say 'yeah, we waited two weeks (or however long) before we called it that.' They don't dare do that though. Even Candy Crowley had to jump in and make sure they don't do that.
 
2012-11-05 01:35:44 PM  
It's amazing what straws people will grasp if it means making Obama look bad. That you folks are trying fan a candle into a roaring bonfire is pretty pathetic. Seriously - look at yourselves.

Why would the President admit to something he didn't do? That doesn't make sense.

/5/10 - you're getting better.

When I found out that Obama personally flew to BeeenggghhaaaazziiiiI!!ii!i and killed those poor people, I wasn't going to vote for him at first, but then I realized it would be unwise to go against such a powerful person.
 
2012-11-05 01:53:36 PM  
I can't believe it took me this long to realize the truth. The GOP is going to try and impeach every 2nd term Democrat President for the rest of history. Carter got off easy.
