This is so true about this President and the Political Left.  Too many examples to name but it is a shame it is all about Politics instead about doing what is right, but then the Fort Hood Massacre is still being listed as a "Work place tragedy" instead of "terrorism".
 
Mr. President +Barack Obama What is the PROBLEM??

I can take comfort in the fact I think she knew this was coming because over the last few weeks she has been enormously affectionate to me, even more so than normal. She would demand I pay attention to her as I would start to go to sleep, laying down on my chest and head butting me over and over. She would even wake me up in the middle of the night with nose licks and paw bats, and when i woke up she would nuzzle up with me purring away.

Two nights ago, she wouldn't let me go to sleep, she wanted to be near me and I'm thinking this is when she was saying her goodbye. She then did something she hadn't done in a long time, she spooned up to me while i was on my side and put her nose in my armpit. She stayed there all night and didn't move until i woke up.

Last night she got on my chest for a few minutes, gave me a few headbutts and then moved to the end of the bed. I have had a towel down there and she wanted to be under the towel, but away from me. When I woke up this morning she was no where to be found. She was in the other room under a table.

I brought her into my room and put her on the bed. She took a couple of scritches then went back under the towel. She didn't want to be with me anymore. She would begrudgingly accept my scritches, but she really wanted to sleep and be left alone. I think I knew then, deep down this was it.

I took her to the vet where she had lost 2.5 pounds in 2 months. She was severely dehydrated, her kidneys had shrunk to the size of quarters and she had a very critical heart murmur. The vet gave me a few options, but none of them would extend her life past a week or so. Ninka was suffering. She offered me the opportunity to take Ninka home with some pain meds in order to say goodbye but I felt Ninka had already said her goodbyes the previous night and in the 3 weeks prior. She passed quietly without fuss, with her head in my hand, purring gently.

As I promised her and all my pets, I will do everything in my power to make them well but when it is no longer within my control, I will not let them continue to suffer on my account. I'm very confident she had given me all the signs to let me know it was time and as hard as this decision was, I know it was the right one. I will miss her more than anything. For 18 years she has been the one constant in my life, always there for me and offering unconditional love. She didn't judge, always listened and was the best friend a person could have. She was my baby, my girl, my Ninka. She is no longer suffering and is in a better place.

Goodbye, Ninka.

September 25: On ABC’s “The View,” Obama says, “we don’t have all of the information yet so we are still gathering.”
September 25: To the U.N. assembly, Obama blames “A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.”
September 26: Libya’s Magarief on the “Today” show says, “It was a preplanned act of terrorism directed against American citizens.”

It was an interesting debate last night.  I would say neither candidate blew the other out of the water, both had their strong points and in the end i'd give this a draw.  By draw I mean that means Obama wins because of his complete failure the first debate. OBama's team so down played his performance the first time, all Obama had to do was show up and not vomit on his shoes and he'd be the winner.

Two things to point out are the women in Obama's life, Hillary and Candy one has given him grief the other saved his ass.  Hillary coming out and taking responsibility the day before for the Bengazi debacle meant Obama HAD to come out and accept responsibility, otherwise he would have been shown up by his Secretary of State who did the right thing by taking responsibility.  So Obama had to do something he never did before, take responsibility. It was a masterful move by Hillary who now showed herself as a true leader, where Obama failed to lead.

Candy on the other hand, jumped in to save Obama by fact checking Romney in favour of Obama..while it worked, it turned out she was completely WRONG and even said so after the debate.  Course she is walking it back saying while what she said and what the President said in the Rose Garden on 9/12 were not exactly the same, it was close enough.. BZZZZZT WRONG.  Calling something an "Act of Terror" implies terrorism.  saying "Acts of terror" when there was only one, implies a broader use of the term.  And if Obama did really believe it was terrorism, why did he have Jay Carney his Press Secretary, Hillary Clinton, The US Ambassador and himself go out for the next week PLUS and say it was the video?

Mark my word, debate is on Monday and this subject will be front and center.  This will be the item that will cause Obama to lose this election.  Why? He lied about it, tried to cover it up, then when he was caught, hemmed and hawed about it trying to call for an investigation that woudl go beyond the election while only taking responsibility when he was forced to.  People don't like cover ups and they hate being lied to.

The 9/11 attack on the embassy in Benghazi, Libya was a catastrophic blow to the American people. An ambassador and security team gave their lives that day.  The real tragedy has been how the Obama Administration has attempted to cover up the fact it was a terrorist attack and later the fact they refused to call it a terrorist attack.  After the attack Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Press Secretary to President Obama and the US Ambassador to the United Nations went out and told the world that this attack was a result of a protest against America due to a video that was released insulting Muslims and it just got out of hand.  In fact President Obama went on The Tonight Show, The Late Show and The View and repeated that this was indeed the result of this video.  President Obama went to the United Nations and gave a speech condemning the video and 6 times stating that the attack was because of the now infamous video.  

As time went by, a different story was emerging.  The President of Libya 24 hours after the attack told the world it was a terrorist attack.  Leaks from the State Department and other departments within the "Intelligence Community" started surfacing, all saying the same thing, this was a terrorist attack on the United States. These leaks directly contradicted the Administration's dialogue.  Within a week, members of the State Department started to publicly  call it a terrorist attack and even Hillary Clinton changed her tune a week later agreeing, that the attack on the US Embassy was a result of terrorism.  President Obama and through his surrogate Jay Carney, the Press Secretary continued to blame the video.

Fast forward to the second Presidential Debate where Governor Romney directly challenged President Obama on this matter.  President Obama suddenly changed his story.  He stated he ALWAYS had called it a terrorist attack and told Candy Crowley to "check the record" referring to a speech he gave in the Rose Garden on 9/12.  In this speech he used the phrase "acts of terror".  This of course set off a fire storm where some people like Jay Carney said, "Of course he meant terrorism!" while opponents of President Obama claimed "acts of terror" was used in a more broad way, that didn't refer to this specific attack.  The story coming out of the Obama Administration changed from the attack was due to a video, to President Obama always considered it a terrorist act and it was the Intelligence Community, specifically the State Department and the Department of Defense that was providing confusing if not inaccurate information.  The main point however, was that the President had ALWAYS considered the attack an act of terror.

Today, CBS finally released the FULL interview it had with President Obama which was conducted within 48 hours of the attack on the Embassy in Benghazi.  In it, the reported directly asked President Obama, "Was this a terrorist attack?"  President Obama responded, "It is too early to tell."  This question and answer was edited out of the original airing by CBS.  CBS stated it didn't consider the question relevant at the time.  Once the whole question of was it a terrorist attack or not came up, CBS wanted to release the full interview including the question they had asked President Obama.  The White House begged CBS not to air it and for a while CBS didn't.   Well now we know why the White House didn't want this out there, because it shows in no uncertain terms that President Obama either didn't want to admit it was a terrorist attack 48 hours later or truly believed it was due to the video.  Of course we see now he has lied. He has lied either during the second Presidential debate where he claims he always said it was a terrorist attack, or he was lying to the world all the times he stated on the Tonight Show, Letterman, the View and the UN.

The simple fact is, when the attack happened, President Obama didn't want to have to admit to a terrorist attack on his watch so close to the Presidential Election, so his Administration tried to down play it.  When this didn't work, he had to distance himself from the people that had "incorrectly characterized" the attack, despite the fact that 2 of the 3 directly reports to the President, Jay Carney who is the mouthpiece of the President and Hillary Clinton.  

President Obama wants you to ignore the man behind the curtain, yet as each day passes we find more and more lies under the tapestry of stories he has spun.The sad thing is Americans are forgiving people, remember Bill Clinton's "i did not have sexual relations with that woman?"  If he would have come out immediately and said it was a mistake, it was tragic, he would investigate where it all went wrong and would not rest until he got who was responsible, he would be leading this race by 10 points.  Instead he attempted to deflect and alter the truth, then tried to cover up the deflections, then lied about ever tryign to be deceptive and now is trying to cover up and redirect the fact he lied to begin with.  Economic and jobs aside, I could almost say Obama really had a rough hand dealt to him, despite the fact he had 2 years with a majority in the House of Republicans and a Super majority in the Senate, however once he outright lies to the world because of politics and the fact he wants to win re-election and the fact his lies are about Americans who died serving their country...all this shows that he is not fit to lead the free world any longer.

You lied President Obama, you were caught, it is time for you to go away.  If for some reason you manage to get a second term, expect the Republicans to attempt to impeach you once the truth is made available.  You'll be saved by the Senate, but you will go down in history as the third President to be impeached and history will remember you as the one who fucked up on Libya.

So there are a lot of polls out there.  Some show Obama up some show Romney up, but what people don't know is what actually goes into the polling.  Lets talk about Gallup polling.  They currently have Obama up 5% in Ohio.  Looks good, right?  Well if you check the specific of the poll, you see that in all the people they called, they ended up talking to 7% more Democrats than Republicans.  

OMG, how is this fair? You may ask.  Well most polling places in order to accurately predict outcomes use data from previous elections in their models.  So this poll in Ohio says in 2008, the Democrats had 5% more Democrats vote than they did Republicans, therefore in this election it should be similar, right?  Well there is the flaw, polls cannot accurately predict who will actually vote, they can only guestimate, which is why Gallup also averages in the amount of Dems and Repubs in 2004.  So basically they are predicting that Obama will win Ohio by 5% IF the Democrats have 7% more people come out and vote than Republicans.

Here is the problem. One third of Ohio have already voted.  The Dems have a 65% vs Republican 35% margin of those who voted already.  Looks good for Obama right?  Well, lets look deeper.  In 2008 Dems had 215,000 MORE people early voting than they did this year.  Republicans had 78,000 FEWER people vote early in 2008 than they did this year.  So in 2012 Obama is ahead in Ohio in the number of votes but their full number of people who actually have voted is down by 9% from 2008.  In fact, the poll is predicting a 7 percent greater vote for the Dems than the Republicans when in 2008 he only got 5% more.

The problem is in 2008 Obama had more Democrats turn out to vote than any other election since Kennedy.  Virtually no one believes that Obama will get the number of people to come out and vote for him as he did in 2008.  In fact if the poll polled the exact same number of Republicans and Democrats, Romney would be ahead by 2%, so the Dems are banking on more Dems voting than Republicans this time around, but the data in the early voting are showing the Dems voting numbers are shrinking while the Republicans are gaining.

Bottom line is that Obama isn't going to be getting the numbers of voters he did in 2008. The question is will what he gets be enough to overcome the Republican base who are vitalized.  Also lets not forget the Independent voters who make up 40% of the electorate.  Right now they are trending Romney on a 2 to 1 margin.  History also tells us that if this election comes down to the 5 to 6 percent of the people who are "undecided" 2/3rd of those vote against the incumbent.  So taking into consideration all of this, any poll that is within the margin of error, should mathematically mean Romney is ahead...and as for Ohio, if you take the averages of ALL the polls, including the ones that show Romney up, it is a dead heat.

It is because of all this I am thinking the Dems are in trouble and Romney will be the next President of the US.  Regardless of who you support, make sure you vote!

Here is  a very fascinating article about the Benghazi attack from Newsweek after it interviewed a man actually there.  The problem is it shows how many holes are in the Obama Administration's story.

It is amazing..well not really.  Not one of my Democrat friends has commented on this shit storm of a situation concerning the 9/11 attack on the embassy in Libya.  They don't want to think about the fact that the President of the United States and the Secretary of State both lied to the American people and in the end one of them is STILL lying to the American people and the world. 

For 11 days they claimed the attack was NOT terror but the result of a crowd incited by a video, despite the fact that the State department watched the attack live from a satellite.  They watched it when it happened, they called up for resources to garner more information which can ONLY be called up when a terrorist activity has occurred.   One after another, State department officials and employees have come forward to swear before a House committee, what they saw, what they did and who they told. 

It is simple politics, the Obama administration didn't want to admit to a terrorist act on their watch. They lied to the American people, sent out their Sec of State, the Ambassador to the UN, Jay Carney and countless others to all denounce this movie and to blame it on the movie

In the end if you look at the time line, the State Dept had a satellite overhead and was watching the event live within 30 minutes of the first call that happened.  That call by the way, "ALERT ALERT! We are under attack." 

It happened, it was unfortunate, but seriously Obama, take responsibility for something once in your life.  This isn't Bush's Fault, this isn't the House or Congress... you are the guy in charge, it falls on you, sir.  Take the responsibility and then move to fix it.  Oh wait, I forgot, Obama runs from every bit of responsibility unless it is the good kind, like he himself got Osama bin Ladin.  He took plenty of credit for that one.

+Indigo C. Hey I gotta question.  What do you think of this State Department coming out and saying that it knew the 9/11 attack was terrorism and yet Hillary, Obama, US ambassador and Jay Carney all said it was due to  the movie/tape.  It took 8 days for the administration to finally admit to it and now these hearing are so full of partisian bull shit on both sides I don't even know why they bother...

The problem is, the State Department is saying, the State Department is NOT to be blamed for misleading the American public.  Then a Colonel says today that despite the Ambassador to Libya's request to give more and more protection, the State Department removed 2 divisions of people in August.  This whole thing is absolutely insane.

From 9/11 to today, the White House KNEW up front by the people who investigate this stuff in the State Department, that this was a terrorist action.  They even classified it as terrorism because they needed to access resources and could only do so if they classified as such.  So the White House and Hillary Clinton both seemingly lied to the American people or at the very least are guilty of trying to cover this stuff up.

Right now there are really only two possibilities.  First.  Obama directed Hillary to cover it up and she followed orders, in which case she can come back and resign properly saying she didn't do anything wrong but was following orders and she can no longer serve under the President.  Or second, Hillary really messed up, she acted on her own to try and save the administration and Obama will have to get rid of her, which in case he does, her political aspirations for the Presidency in 2016 is done.

Either way, this entire situation is insane.  It has been so poorly mismanaged that even Anderson Cooper and Chris Mathews are scratching their heads not sure what has happened.  This situation could very well turn the election.
