This Should Make Your Blood Boil

Warning: It includes a photo of our American ambassador to Libya who's about to die at the hands of our friends, the Muslims.

Yeah.  Let's talk about Romney instead.

While He Fights 'The War On Women' ...

Iran Has Obama in a Headlock

Here he was having such fun ...

... and now it's all come crashing down around him.

Where's W When We Need Him?

This photo of those we pay to prevent American deaths in a violent world says it all:


Lost.  Absolutely lost.

Compare that sorry spectacle with this:


In a moment of crisis we don't need leaders who are feeling sorry for themselves.

Make No Mistake


Obama ‘Built That’

The Empty Chair

Barack Obama took time out from campaigning yesterday just long enough to hold a press conference to explain his actions in the Libyan/Egyptian debacle.  Here's how he addressed the questions everyone wants answers to:

Why were we shamefully unprepared - on 9/11 - for radical Muslim attacks on U.S. personnel in radical Muslim nations?

No answer.

Where was the intelligence breakdown that allowed the events of the day to unfold?

No response.

Where were those who were supposed to be guarding our embassy staff?

Ignored.

What steps are being taken to hold Egypt and Libya accountable for the shocking actions that led to American deaths?

Nothing.

Will this happen again and again as long as you're in charge?

Obama went back to campaigning for reelection.

Quote of the Day

Brought to us by James Taranto:

"Last week John Kerry said: 'Ask Osama bin Laden if he is better off now than he was four years ago.' According to the Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram, the Cairo mob answered that taunt with the chant: "Obama, Obama there are still a billion Osamas.'"

It should be mentioned that we gave those in Cairo who routinely spit in our face, tear our flag apart, and vow to murder us all $1,550,000,000 in "aid" last year.


Nonsense

Would any self-respecting journalist have written this if a Republican were today commander-in-chief?

President Barack Obama, despised by those provoking the violence as well as those carrying it out, is now in an almost impossible position.

An impossible position for The Master Of The Universe?

Yes.

Another great reason to vote his ass out on November 6.

Hillary's Response To The Attack

I watched our Secretary of State's press conference - such as it was - yesterday and was appalled.  She's in mourning.  At a time when we need our leaders to be focused on the business we pay them to focus on.  Want to shed tears?  Resign from office.  And go home to Bill's tender shoulder and cry your eyes out.  And allow adults to take charge and get out in front of this mess you helped create.

The only part of her prepared statement that I remember?

"We will continue to work with the ..." assholes in the Middle East who hate us.

Nothing will change.

What a mess.  And all the wrong people are in charge.

Does this represent leadership to you?

Hillary: "How can this happen in a country we help liberate, in a city (Benghazi) we helped save from destruction?

Why don't they like us?

Lost.  Completely freaking lost.

May God have mercy.


Bullshit

Obama: Libya aftermath not 'the time for politics' 

... he said, between political fundraisers.

Without Doubt

Is This 1979?

Where We Need To Go From Here

We need to go in the opposite direction from that which Obama and Hillary are taking us.

Walter Russell Mead sums it up:
The Middle East mess calls President Obama’s policy of engagement with democratic forces in the region ... into question. The events in Libya and Egypt—combined with the bloody chaos in Syria—make Americans more eager to wash their hands of this tormented region. They don’t want to bomb, they don’t want to build; they want to get out. Getting out of Iraq was popular; getting in to Libya was not—and going in to Syria looks, politically, about as smart as sticking your hand into a wood chipper.
If I hear those two talk about "peace in the Middle East" one more time, I'm going to vomit. I couldn't care less whether they have peace or war or pestilence or rampant venereal disease. Everyone in that part of the world can die and I don't care.

Enough with the assistance. Enough with the encouragement. Enough with the cooperation. Enough with the engagement.  Enough with the cash.

Get the U.S. out of Egypt and Libya and Yemen and Tunisia and Morocco and Algeria. Now. Enough is enough.

Joke Of The Day

I'm in no mood for comedy:

Obama vows to "bring to justice" ambassador's killers

Does anyone believe him?  Anyone?

Go back to doing what you do best, man.  The campaign awaits.

Where's Obama?

Another humiliation:
Protesters storm US Embassy in Yemen
By Ahmed Al-Haj, Associated Press

Sanaa, Yemen (AP) — Chanting "death to America," hundreds of protesters angered by an anti-Islam film stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen's capital and burned the American flag on Thursday, the latest in a series of attacks on American diplomatic missions in the Middle East.

The protesters breached the usually tight security around the embassy and reached the compound grounds but did not enter the main building housing the offices. Once inside the compound, they brought down the U.S. flag, burned it and replaced it with a black banner bearing Islam's declaration of faith — "There is no God but Allah."

Before storming the grounds, demonstrators removed the embassy's sign on the outer wall, set tires ablaze and pelted the compound with rocks.

The violence has raised worries that further protests could break out around the Muslim world as anger spreads over the movie. [link]
Maybe we need to send Obama over there to apologize to the sunsabitchas again.

It's The Filmmaker's Fault!

Should we jail all the university professors?

We're inclined.

UPenn professor Anthea Butler calls for imprisonment of filmmaker Sam Bacile

Right.  A movie upset the Muslims.

This time, anyway.

Yesterday it was a fly in their soup.

The day before it was the weather.

The day before that ...

I wonder if this stupid University of Pennsylvania professor called for Bill Maher's imprisonment when he released his anti-religious screed?

Sure she did.

Idiot.

He's Culpable

The fact that this joker made no effort to prevent the invasion of American sovereignty, desecration of our flag, and destruction of American property at our Egyptian embassy makes his pronouncements a bit too much to accept:
Morsi says Egyptians reject 'unlawful acts'
Associated Press

Brussels (AP) — Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has vowed not to allow attacks on foreign embassies in Cairo, saying the Egyptian people reject such "unlawful acts."

Speaking during a visit to the European Union on Thursday, Morsi said he had spoken to U.S. President Barack Obama and that he condemned "in the clearest terms" attacks in the Libyan city of Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

Crowds protesting at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Wednesday climbed its walls and tore down an American flag, which they replaced briefly with a black, Islamist flag. [link]
As everyone knows, this incident occurred in Cairo, a city controlled by the Egyptian military, over a period of hours. A military that was nowhere to be found as our embassy was being ripped apart.

Morsi's words are shameful. And disrespectful.

He's one of them. What should we expect?

Congressman Allen West On Jimmy Carter II

From a press release:
Less than 24 hours after our nation remembered the heinous attacks of September 11, 2001, Americans find their sovereign soil attacked again as more American lives are lost at the hands of intolerant, barbaric, radical Muslims.

United States Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and several embassy staff were murdered late yesterday when suspected religious extremists stormed the United States Consulate in Benghazi. This morning, my condolences and prayers go out to the families of the victims.

Americans need to question whether the deaths of these innocent patriots could have been avoided. The Obama Administration touted the Arab Spring as an awakening of freedom, which we now see is a nightmare of Islamism.

Even more concerning, is the initial response to these attacks last night from the embassy officials of the Obama Administration was to apologize for a Facebook video that supposedly hurt Muslim feelings. President Obama's policy of appeasement towards the Islamic world has manifested itself into a specter of unconscionable hatred.

How anyone can believe this President is strong on national security and foreign policy is beyond my comprehension. President Obama has clearly surpassed former President Jimmy Carter and his actions during the Iranian Embassy crisis as the weakest and most ineffective person to ever occupy the White House.
This tragedy should have been prevented.

Obama has failed us again.

Only this time, American lives have been lost as a result of his failure.

Why Romney Was Right To Be Outraged

GOP leader: Embassy statement like telling rape victim 'you asked for it'

Anti-American Journalist Blames ... US

Christiane Amanpour: 'Extremists' in America 'Whip Up Hatred' in Libya 

Yeah.  We have an extremist problem here in the USA.

Why won't this ignorant fool go away?

Outrage!

A day late, Barack:

US sends Marines to Libya after deadly attack

US sends Marines to Libya after deadly attack?

Did no one tell our clown-in-chief that Marines are supposed to be on guard at our embassies and consulates - especially those in the heart of Muslim darkness - to prevent deadly attacks?

Where were the Marines?

Where was the protection?

On 9/11, for God's sake.

We all know campaigning for reelection has taken precedence over everything in recent years, but now lives are lost because of the President's negligence.

So where's he off to today?




And Then There's The Press

For the love of God:

NBC's Mitchell: Is Romney 'Injecting Politics Into a National Tragedy?'

The press has chosen to ignore the real story and go after Romney instead.

Ann Coulter is no mood for their games:
Conservative author Ann Coulter on Wednesday called the media out for its attacks on Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's criticism of Barack Obama's response to Tuesday's anti-American hostilities in Egypt and Libya.

Appearing on Fox News's Hannity, Coulter said, "You know that Romney’s statement was devastating to President Obama because the media is screaming bloody murder":

[source]
Is Romney the story here?  Really?

The fact that the press seemed to "miss" is that the statement Romney put out early was supported by our President later in that same day. Romney attacked the State Department apology to the Muslim world for some movie that supposedly set the Muslims off - again - and Obama - after hours of dithering - repudiated that same press release from his State Department.

So where's the outrage?

And where should the outrage be directed?

Someone want to shake some sense into that stupid Andrea Mitchell?
