Obama’s Failure, Media Attacks Romney

Here are some of the things we have learned in the past day.

Obama has apparently skipped intelligence briefings for the past week. A rather bizarre thing for the days leading up to the anniversary of September 11th.

Despite threats, the U.S. consulate in Libya was not guarded by U.S. Military.

The attacks appeared to be well coordinated and planned for the 9/11 anniversary.

Yet, somehow, the media has tried to turn this situation into a negative for Romney. Their efforts to do so turned to be as well coordinated as the attacks in Egypt and Cairo appeared to be.

Amazing isn’t it? Since Obama’s convention we’ve had an abysmal jobs report come out, a teachers’ strike in Obama’s hometown of Chicago and now this. Obama has had a rather terrible week, resulting from his bad policies, lack of leadership, inexperience and incompetence, and the media does everything it can to not hold him accountable.v

    Just shows how extra in the tank they are for Obama – and how important it is that we don’t lend credence to their absurdities and punch back, twice as hard.

      I think it’s Romney that blew the election today. America was attacked and Romney attacked our President. There are a lot of Conservatives that are either taking Romney to task for his statements or at least not defending him.

      • tiredoflibbs September 12, 2012 / 10:13 pm

        To use a favored proggy talking point concerning pResidential ads: “It’s not an attack if it is true.”

        Cappy, Romney did not attack the pResident – using the proggy logic of the past defending their political ads. Romney rightfully criticized obAMATEUR’s policies and his lack of interest in foreign policy.

        Your pResident dropped the ball. Now, you and your fellow mindless drones will blame Romney and give obAMATEUR a pass.

        Predictable and pathetic.

      • tiredoflibbs September 13, 2012 / 6:17 am

        cappy, you can call it opinion (uninformed opinion at best)…. you can call it whatever you want. But the fact is, you are regurgitating talking points – a theme from the White House and the media to use against Romney. THE FACT IS you are giving your pResident a pass for bungling a building situation with more warnings than the vague one Bush had for 9/11.

        In short, cappy, you are a hypocrite and a mindless drone.

    Michelle Malkin just had some great analysis – (paraphrased) “on Sept 11, four more Americans were brutally murdered, and the Presidents speech was cold, lacked passion and was disconnected from the gravity of it all, as he headed to Las Vegas to be amongst his fans. This should make every Americans blood boil”.

      Once again Jeremiah you have fallen victim to something you were sent by another hater of the President in an e-mail.

      Actual quote from “The Audacity of Hope” [pg. 261]: Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

    If the MSM is in the tank for Obama no matter what and will win him the election then this thread is moot and the American people are a bunch of sheep. Go fish.

    You people who think that the US is projecting weakness under a President who personally guaranteed, always for political expediency, the right to kill newborn are out of their minds.

    IF you want to judge Obama as weak because of an attack in Libya THEN we should judge all administrations past and future similarly.

    Do you remembers these attacks on diplomats? If not you should be ashamed.

    June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
    Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.
    February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
    Truck bomb kills 17.

    February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
    Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

    July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
    Suicide bomber kills two.

    December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
    Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

    March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
    Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.

    September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
    Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.

    September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
    Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.

    The GOP needs a president to STOP the US from playing world peace/police officer. We can’t afford it. The trillion dollar wars have destroyed the economy.

        Maybe you can put some numbers to your bs talking points. Wait, one of the big time $ sinks is Medicare part D, a benefit YOU get care of George Bush that You didn’t earn.

        As for unions, you wouldn’t have been protected from competition in you AC job without them. The barriers to having 1 million AC repairmen, including state licensing and examinations were put there by unions not by generous corporate benefactors.

        As for illegals, it was Ronald Reagan who granted amnesty AND of course OBAMA is sending back way more to Mexico than Bush.

        Remind me of the GOP president who balanced the budget again?

  7. Jeremiah September 12, 2012 / 10:59 pm

    I think you miss the point, Bardolf.
    Attacks under former Presidents did not necessarily contend that they were in favor of such attacks.

    The playing field is different with this President, his actions and words speak for themselves. His is a terrorist sympathizer, and I don’t think it was merely for “political expedience,” or coincidence, that he voted to allow children survivors of botched abortions to die without medical assistance help keep them alive. That’s a pretty clear choice, and any person’s conscience would tell them that such a vote would be immoral, cruel, and sick. Obama is evil, plain and simple!

    • bardolf September 12, 2012 / 11:16 pm

      Jeremiah

      I don’t like Obama. He is NOT a terrorist sympathizer. He has no sympathy for anyone who can’t benefit him. He is Bill Clinton part 2, dropping bombs on Iraq or Somali medicine clinics to draw media attention away from blowjbs.

      You will convince NOBODY who voted for Obama that he is a terrorist sympathizer. You can convince them that he is incompetent, dishonest, … AND if Mittens is to win he needs some people who voted for Obama to vote for him.

      Even from a bizarro POV one wouldn’t say e.g. Satan cares for anyone or sympathizes with them. There is no coherent dimension by which Obama is a terrorist sympathizer UNLESS you see the USA as God’s country and Obama as the devil. But clearly the USA is not God’s country as it permits so many despicable evils to exist as conveniences.

        This from Quinnipiac Polling:

        President Barack Obama buries Gov. Mitt Romney, his Republican challenger, 62 – 34 percent among New York State likely voters, with a 20-point lead among men and a 35-point lead among women, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

        This is the first measure of likely voters by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and can not be compared with earlier surveys of registered voters.

        In today’s survey, President Obama leads 94 – 4 percent among Democrats and 58 – 37 percent among independent voters, while Republicans turn to Romney 89 – 10 percent. Obama has big leads among all income and age groups.

        White Catholics back Romney 56 – 42 percent while white Protestants back Obama by a narrow 51 – 47 percent. White men are split 48 – 48 percent while white women back the president 57 – 40 percent.

        “The only reason President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney will come to New York is to raise money. Unless something unforeseen happens, the poll numbers say it’s an Obama blow-out,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

        “Besides his usual close to unanimous vote in the Black community, Obama also carries the white vote in New York. Men like him a lot; women like him even more.”

        You don’t like America? – Jeremiah

        I love America, it’s my country, why would I leave? I have high expectations of the greatest country in history unlike the poseurs on this blog.

        I expect it to protect the most vulnerable before it protects someone’s 5th mansion. That’s not the consensus on B4V.

        I expect it to allow free speech which means speech that goes against the grain. I expect not to be subject to arbitrary, useless searches just because I need to fly somewhere on business. That’s not on the radar of lost freedoms on B4V.

        I expect the US to treat other countries as it would like to be treated. That means not overthrowing democratically elected officials because BP oil says so.

        I expect the US to give a fair playing field in the markets and NOT guaranteed outcomes for GM or Solyandra. That also means getting rid of the FED which is a source of quasi-free money for commodity speculators, robbing the elderly on fixed incomes in the banks of honest interest rates.

    Let’s see…..

    In 2004 campaign, John Kerry criticized and attacked Bush for his policies concerning Iraq – using the themes he had dropped the ball and bungled the job. The media followed Kerry and criticized Bush and justified Kerry’s criticism.

    Forward to 2012 campaign, Romney rightfully criticizes obAMATEUR’s bungling of the Middle East (after promises of repairing USA tainted image). obAMATEUR has dropped the ball, not attending security briefs (something that proggies criticized Bush for not acting to prevent 9/11 due to a single vague security brief) and ignoring warnings that our embassies were not adequately protected.

    What does the media do?

    They dutifully protect obAMATEUR and criticize Romney. And that’s not all! It appears that the media’s attack on Romney was as well coordinated as those attacks in Libya and Egypt!

    In the face of an international crisis such as we are, which has come as a direct result of the failed policies of this President, and all the media and the sycophants can do is attack the statement from the challenger – you know for certain they have lost.

    What’s equally sad is the inherent racism in their action, or inaction in this case. The media and the sycophants will never level any criticism against this President solely because of his skin color. They either don’t believe that his sensitivities can handle the criticism, of which they are correct, or they are terrified of being labeled a racist themselves if they do criticize, so the only option they are left with is too attack his white challenger. Sad, but true because there is so much to criticize this president with over this current foreign policy debacle. He single handedly, without going to Congress, helped depose a strong US ally in Mubarek, and welcomed the Muslim Bortherhood as a democratic reform. He helped dislodge the regime of Qaddafi, who was not necessarily an ally, but one who we could predict and of whom kept that country relatively stable, and has now abdicated his responsibilities in favor of campaigning and schmoozing with celebrities.

    This entire flare up is a direct result of Obama’s mishandling of the ME and is just another unfortunate example of his failure on every front, domestic and foreign. It is not possible to have a worse President.

    • Majordomo Pain September 13, 2012 / 9:02 am

      This is nothing more than drivel. Cluster Romney has failed his party by repeatedly pandering to the base that really did not want him because he is not a Conservative. Now Romney has lost the moderates because of his amateurish actions regarding the attacks in Benghazi and Cairo. Romney has exposed himself as a foreign policy failure by doubling down on his ill informed statement of Tuesday night. Mitt Romney is unfit to lead a nation as large and militarily powerful as the US.

    I lot of people question whether or not we can afford four more years of Obama. I question whether or not we can afford four more months. The Yemen Embasy is now under attack.

    Here’s maybe the funniest thing of the day, and I think we all could use some humor in these uncertain times. The brain trust over at MSNBC is criticizing Romney by quoting, wait for it ……………McCain campaign advisors!!!!!!!

    McCain probably received the worst advice on how to run a campaign than any presidential nominee ever, and yet those people still have no shame and are now being used by the liberal media.

    • Majordomo Pain September 13, 2012 / 8:56 am

      And this from Gallup:

      Obama’s three-point gain in voter support after his party’s nominating convention is below the historical average of five points, and similar to his four-point bounce in 2008. However, it was a better showing than Romney had this year, as the Republican nominee received no increase in support after the GOP convention.

      • Cluster September 13, 2012 / 9:08 am

        Amongst accuracy in polls, Gallup was 20 out of 23 that were monitored. Rasmussen was the most accurate poll in 2008 and the 2010 elections and here are their results:

        Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows President Obama attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

        And this was yesterday before the world became aware of how badly Obama has bungled foreign policy. November 2012 will be November 2010 part II.

        It is over for Obama sweetly. You might want to start getting use to that.

      • Majordomo Pain September 13, 2012 / 9:24 am

        Rasmussen currently has Obama with a 1 point lead. When Bush was reelected in 2004 the end of Conservatism began. The 2010 midterms were an outlier with Conservatives getting a bump from both having the TEA Party energy and massive amounts of PAC money spent on congressional campaigns. The shift farther to the right has cost the GOP the next three midterm elections with the Democrats recapturing both houses in 2014 and deepening those gains if Hillary Clinton runs in 2016. We, Ourselves of the Collective have no doubt that President Barack Obama will be reelected and this is not based on wishes or hopes but on hard electoral math. If Romney does not have a lead in the state by state polls in Florida, Ohio and Virginia the day of the first debate Mr Romney will lose the election no matter what happens in those debates.

  12. Retired Spook September 13, 2012 / 11:11 am

    With everything that’s going on on the international stage, there’s a dynamic playing out that off most people’s radar:

    Political observers have long debated: Should American politics have a third major political party? A recent Gallup poll shows that 46 percent of Americans today believe the answer is yes.

    However, this is down from the percentage of people who believed we needed a third party candidate in September 2011, a solid 55 percent.

    The number of people who believe that the two existing major parties — the Republicans and Democrats — are doing an adequate job of representing the American people was at 45 percent this month, rising from 38 percent during the same time last year.

    “Americans generally tend to support the idea that a third major party is needed on the American political scene, although such support today, at 46%, is lower than it has been over the past two years, perhaps because the poll was conducted in a presidential election year, shortly after the Republican and Democratic conventions,” Gallup notes.

    Independents are the most likely to support a major third party, with 58 percent this month saying America needed one, the second lowest proportion recorded since 2003.

    And what force is it that has come to the fore in the last couple years? The Tea Party movement, which many of our Leftists have cited as a third party movement appears to have had just the opposite effect. I said from the beginning that the goal of most Tea Party folks was to take control of the GOP. I still stand by that assessment.
