Is Obama the biggest troll in America, or what?

And don't forget what happened after the GOP torpedoed Elisabeth Warren for the Consumer Protection department. She ended up on the Senate banking committee. Something tells me the GOP didn't think their cunning plan all the way through.

UseLessHuman: The question here is really gotten foggy, who lied to who and when? So much spin on both sides of this I'm really unable to find a factual basis to build on. At this point I'm inclined to believe that the truth is probably some political bullshiat of a kind that neither party is suggesting.

Who made the decision to change the talking points for Susan Rice? Assuming she really is innocent of purposefully lying to America who made the decision for her. Bring that person forward for a press conference, admit that they changed it and explain why. This shows her innocence and explains to the American people why they had to omit the facts and use the video as a cover, an explanation other than "it was right before the election and it would have looked bad."

I'm a crazy liberal and I generally vote D but this really looks like Obama used Susan Rice as a tool to deflate the political consequences of the attack and then let her go when McCain and Company went super crazy media-frenzy about it. It's certainly possible some repubs believe that if the public had known what had really happened it could have swung the vote their way. In retrospect It wouldn't have changed my decision, at least as I understand it now, which is a definite BARELY.


The political consequences didn't need deflating. And how would insinuating that a random mob, rather than organized, well-armed terrorists, killed our ambassador be GOOD, politically?

The CIA gave her edited information (which she ADMITTED was incomplete and possibly false), partially to hide the existence of the CIA facility (which is kinda the CIA's thing), and partially because the investigation was ongoing. This isn't an unusual thing for the CIA to do.

I couldn't care less about the Benghazi scandal, as she had nothing to do with it. The reason I wanted her withdrawn was that she has huge investments in the companies involved in the Keystone XL pipeline, and she would ultimately be responsible for deciding whether or not the deal goes through.

For that alone she should not be considered. Massive conflict of interest, so I'm surprised the Republicans didn't want her in there.

4 dead Americans, the Oval Office here I come! 

This was the lowest point of the election. A candidate who couldn't wait to get in front of the cameras to gloat over the death of Americans just to get a political leg up. All the other stuff is typical political BS and to be expected - lie about jeep moving jobs to china, lie about stealing money from medicare when your own plan would implement the exact same savings measures, lie that the 21st century American military is weaker than it was in 1916... but turning the deaths of your fellow citizens into a smirky punchline was beyond repugnant. And that inhuman pile of dog excrement came sorta-close to taking the White House. 

This incident was doomed to be nothing more than political fodder from Day One.

Silly Jesus: Keizer_Ghidorah: Silly Jesus: Keizer_Ghidorah: Silly Jesus: biyaaatci: Silly Jesus: He didn't call it that.

I am really sick of your lies.

He said it once in the tenth paragraph of a twelve paragraph statement and in the most vague of terms. It's a bit of a stretch to construe that as him calling this specific attack a terrorist attack rather than summing up our general views at a nation.

"An act of terror" is the most vague way to refer to it? And halfof33 rants about ME being the one who spins and fibs.

If you were addressing the nation about a terrorist attack that just occurred, and your speech was 12 paragraphs long, would you put the one and only mention of terror in the tenth paragraph? It's sort of the topic. That's how you learn to write papers in the second grade. You open with the topic. It was a throw away line toward the end of a fluff piece.

What should he have done? Screamed "TERRORISTS! AMERICANS DEAD! TERRORISTS! GOD IS ANGRY!" every other line? He farking called the attacks an act of terror, and you're upset that he didn't do it until near the end instead of where you think he should have.

I'm saying that it was a vague throw away line stating our general views as a nation. He wasn't calling it an act of terror.

As I asked another person...under what circumstances would you put the only mention of the topic of your speech in the 10th of 12 paragraphs? This isn't kindergarten. He has educated speech writers. It clearly wasn't the topic of his speech.


IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
hen in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. - Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. - And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Hmm, ongoing investigation where there was a lot of things to sort through, as well as not wanting to give our enemies information. Yeah, I can see why this would be a humongous anti-American lie that Rice cooked up herself so as to allow Obama to contact the lizard-men and launch Bigfoot from the cloaked satellite in orbit to attack the Republican National Convention.

Benghazi is not and was not a scandal. No matter how much the right wishes it was. If you people truly cared, you'd have been outraged over all of the other times our embassies and consulates have been attacked over the years. The only reason you cared about this one was because Obama's in the White House.

LordJiro: This isn't an unusual thing for the CIA to do.


In fact, I find it unusual that anybody is even concerning themselves with disclosure on this. I remember when the CIA might as well have been Ancient Aliens, their unseen hand leaving nary a trace aside from the conjecture of the public. Now the rabble gets out of control at the slightest hint of OpSec disinformation. What's the point of having international and domestic espionage if the torch-and-pitchfork crowd can't handle anything that doesn't act like reality television?

The question here is really gotten foggy, who lied to who and when? So much spin on both sides of this I'm really unable to find a factual basis to build on. At this point I'm inclined to believe that the truth is probably some political bullshiat of a kind that neither party is suggesting.

Who made the decision to change the talking points for Susan Rice? Assuming she really is innocent of purposefully lying to America who made the decision for her. Bring that person forward for a press conference, admit that they changed it and explain why. This shows her innocence and explains to the American people why they had to omit the facts and use the video as a cover, an explanation other than "it was right before the election and it would have looked bad."

I'm a crazy liberal and I generally vote D but this really looks like Obama used Susan Rice as a tool to deflate the political consequences of the attack and then let her go when McCain and Company went super crazy media-frenzy about it. It's certainly possible some repubs believe that if the public had known what had really happened it could have swung the vote their way. In retrospect It wouldn't have changed my decision, at least as I understand it now, which is a definite BARELY.

Are the people whose incompetence led directly to the death of an ambassador and three other Americans still in office?

Further, are the people who lied about and tried to cover up what led up to the death of an ambassador and the three other Americans still in office?

As the answer to both of those questions is "Yes" the answer to your question is "No"

Should criminal charges be brought against people within this administration over what happened?

The answer to that question is also yes.


Yep. The Republicans who directly denied security for the embassy are still in office. I think we should bring criminal charges against them. Good idea, bro.

Obama will make sure anyone brave enough to question him will be called a racist and they lose or else they have to let it slide in and then Obama wins. Obama always wins when it comes to these racial wars.


You are right about that Obama always wins.

I haven't fought you at all... this is my Boobies on this thread, after all. I just asked you a question. And you answered... it's just about the lie, and you shouldn't lie for political gain concerning an act where people die.

So I have another question to follow up with. When Bush and his administration lied about WMDs in Iraq... would you say that's better or worse than what Obama did? Take into account that Obama's supposed lie was about an attack that killed 4, while Bush's started a war that killed over 4400 US soldiers and wounded 32000 more.

I'm curious as to how much outrage you had over that lie compared to this one. You seem to be wasting a lot of energy over something tragic but small, and not worth you or anyone else's time. If you spent more time arguing over this lie then Bush's lie, you're a pretty farking horrible human being.

Keep in mind that discussing who's on your ignore list is the opposite of ignoring. It crosses the line into trolling of other Fark members and may result in a suspension of posting privileges.

"An act of terror" is the most vague way to refer to it? And halfof33 rants about ME being the one who spins and fibs.

If you were addressing the nation about a terrorist attack that just occurred, and your speech was 12 paragraphs long, would you put the one and only mention of terror in the tenth paragraph? It's sort of the topic. That's how you learn to write papers in the second grade. You open with the topic. It was a throw away line toward the end of a fluff piece.

What should he have done? Screamed "TERRORISTS! AMERICANS DEAD! TERRORISTS! GOD IS ANGRY!" every other line? He farking called the attacks an act of terror, and you're upset that he didn't do it until near the end instead of where you think he should have.

I'm saying that it was a vague throw away line stating our general views as a nation. He wasn't calling it an act of terror.

As I asked another person...under what circumstances would you put the only mention of the topic of your speech in the 10th of 12 paragraphs? This isn't kindergarten. He has educated speech writers. It clearly wasn't the topic of his speech.

He said it once in the tenth paragraph of a twelve paragraph statement and in the most vague of terms. It's a bit of a stretch to construe that as him calling this specific attack a terrorist attack rather than summing up our general views at a nation.

"An act of terror" is the most vague way to refer to it? And halfof33 rants about ME being the one who spins and fibs.

If you were addressing the nation about a terrorist attack that just occurred, and your speech was 12 paragraphs long, would you put the one and only mention of terror in the tenth paragraph? It's sort of the topic. That's how you learn to write papers in the second grade. You open with the topic. It was a throw away line toward the end of a fluff piece.


What should he have done? Screamed "TERRORISTS! AMERICANS DEAD! TERRORISTS! GOD IS ANGRY!" every other line? He farking called the attacks an act of terror, and you're upset that he didn't do it until near the end instead of where you think he should have.

That's not moving the goalposts. I'm maintaining that he wasn't referring to the Benghazi mess as a terrorist attack. How logical would it be to give a speech addressing a just occurred terrorist attack and not mention that it was terrorism until the very end? Wouldn't that sort of be in the opening statement?


How logical is it to say that mentioning it as an act of terror, in a speech about the attack is anything but calling it a terrorist attack?

Please proceed, governor.

She didn't challenge the information the CIA gave her. That is not leadership. When Bush was told by the CIA that Osama Bin Laden was targeting the US he didn't just roll-over and accept it. When the CIA told Bush that they didn't have anything reliable showing WMD's in Iraq, he challenged it until he got the answers he wanted. That's leadership.

In fact, Romney was the one who blamed it on protests, thought Hillary Clinton's statement about Cairo was Obama's response to Benghazi, and implied that the attack was in Cairo.


You also hit the nail on the head on why the GOP tried to make this a scandal so badly. Because Romney shat the bed in the foreign policy department by jumping the gun way too early and the GOP were frantically searching for a way to bring down Obama on foreign policy as a result in an attempt to do damage control for the Romney campaign...which is how we ended up with this stupid scandal.

My thought exactly. Don't put anyone forward now. The Senate has to adjourn soon enough anyway. Once it does, Clinton can resign and Obama can appoint Rice to the position.

A year from now, either she'll be viewed as a failure in the position, and will resign rather than go through the hearings, or she'll be viewed as a success, and Republicans would be viewed as crazy people (even by their base) for trying to bring up Benghazi when even FOX News has moved on to try to sell 80-90 other controversies by then.

Didn't stop the Republicans, did it? Of course, now you're assuming that the only reason for this "lie" was Obama using it for political gain, instead of the CIA not wanting to give out sensitive information and because there was and is still an investigation going on.

Republicans, masters of projecting.

How about "no comment, it's an ongoing investigation" rather than "this nifty reason that I made up?"


Granted, one of the mistakes made was not telling the media and the public "We'll tell you when we've got a lot more info and everything sorted out", but I really doubt it was done out of malice or political maneuvering. Even God made mistakes.

"In the course of the meeting, we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community, and the initial assessment upon which they were based, were incorrect in a key respect: there was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi,"

Hmm, ongoing investigation where there was a lot of things to sort through, as well as not wanting to give our enemies information. Yeah, I can see why this would be a humongous anti-American lie that Rice cooked up herself so as to allow Obama to contact the lizard-men and launch Bigfoot from the cloaked satellite in orbit to attack the Republican National Convention.

Benghazi is not and was not a scandal. No matter how much the right wishes it was. If you people truly cared, you'd have been outraged over all of the other times our embassies and consulates have been attacked over the years. The only reason you cared about this one was because Obama's in the White House.

"The number-one job is to make Obama a one-term president". Pardon me if I don't believe any of you after this statement and four years of trucking up and around to try to make it come true.

halfof33: Marcus Aurelius: So the mean old administration made a claim that you didn't actually witness on TV but which you were outraged about after seeing it on the news about them not revealing the true details of an investigation in progress of a terrorist attack where the perpetrators had not yet been identified nor apprehended, and you are outraged?

"didn't witness on TV"? WTF? What an odd comment.

"not revealing the true details of an investigation in progress of a terrorist attack where the perpetrators had not yet been identified nor apprehended lied about something that had absolutely nothing to do with an investigation, and you are outraged?"

fixed that for you, chief.

/I have found in these threads that they are filled with morans who don't understand that the Administration lied about whether there was a protest outside the Embassy before the attack.


So if the lie had absolutely nothing to do with the investigation, why are you so outraged?

Lt. Cheese Weasel: It's not a scandal subby. It's a national disgrace.


Of course it's a national disgrace. A group of old white politicians attacked an innocent black woman because she did her job with the unclassified information provided to her by the CIA. The silliness of the attacks were only heightened by the Republican Right Hand of MSM, Fox News, seeking higher TV ratings and profits at the cost of the woman's career and personal standing.

I completely agree with you for once, Lt. Smegma Weasel, the Republicans are a national disgrace, many times over.

Thigvald the Big-Balled: propasaurus: Obama should do something like appoint her WH Chief of Staff. Make the Republicans go through her if they want to talk to the President.

THIS.

And Obama should take advice offered in earlier FARK threads: nominate a Republican for the position, one who would be replaced by a Democrat. Watch the Republicans tear apart one of their own in order to prevent the seat from falling into Democratic hands.


That actually would be fantastic. Like, Susan Collins or something.

badLogic: Marcus Aurelius: "While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first."

Is Obama the biggest troll in America, or what?

And don't forget what happened after the GOP torpedoed Elisabeth Warren for the Consumer Protection department. She ended up on the Senate banking committee. Something tells me the GOP didn't think their cunning plan all the way through.

So, she is going to go all Obi-Wan on the GOP? I can't wait!
"You can't win, GOP. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."


I didn't even know the lady before a bunch of harpies started screaming about a press conference she gave that virtually no one saw, but she seems well qualified for a lot of positions. Like my dinner date, for example.

What's wrong with Kerry as Secretary of State?

The GOP would love to see Scott Walker appointed to his senate seat should Kerry up and go.

Mass governor is a Dem. Like Propasaur said, he's likely to up and appoint himself.

/as blagoyovich said, a senate seat is a valuable gotdamned thing


I thought Mass. doesn't do appointments, just special elections, which is why Brown got in in the first place.
