  1. I can see by that little demonstration how much Obama has improved America’s status in the world. Especially the Arab world. Hope and Change? Forward? This guy is murdering our nation!

  2. This is what happens when incompetent amateurs are elected to high political office. Lack of experience doesn’t necessarily lead to disastrous administrations, but disaster follows incompetence like pride proceeds a fall. And the arrogant incompetence of Barack Obama has set us all up to suffer the undeserved consequences of his pathological arrogance combined with his blithering incompetence.

    Obama might be the least intelligent, or most dishonest, individual to occupy the Oval Office in the history of the republic. He blamed George W Bush for the failures of his first term, now he’s blaming the people who didn’t vote for him for the failures of his second term. He’s spent Billions on economic stimulus that didn’t stimulate spit, he paid taxpayer money for clunkers that Cubans would have been glad to buy for cash, FOB Miami, no questions asked. He’s supplied arms to Mexican drug smugglers and to al Qaeda terrorists then lied to the mothers and fathers of slain Americans about bringing the murderers to justice. He’s used the institutions of the federal government to suppress the personal and political rights of his opponents. He’s crook and a liar and a totalitarian usurper, and he deserves to be removed from office and incarcerated for the full term of his natural life.

    Then maybe we won’t have to suffer the same thing all over again with the arrogant and incompetent Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office.

  3. And that’s the best looking arab they have to offer! She looks like a sak filled with oranges and door knobs. I love the face…she’s so hideous she could be a leftist democrat…..kinda Helen Thomas, eh?

  4. Easy there Hoagie, that an Obama Girl you’re talkin’ about. He likes ‘em big and strong, decidedly on the masculine side. It’s also a plus if they outweigh him and look like they can whip his ass. He needs a big mommy to do his hair and make-up, paint his lips and make him wear sexy little mini-skirts with spikey heels.

  5. Yeah, York, I saw mention that Valerie Jarrett issued the stand down order. Only problem is she doesn’t have the authority. An order like that has to come directly from the top levels of the chain-of-command, like the Commander-in-Chief, or the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and very, very, few others, possibly including the Secretary of Defense, possibly.

    A stand down order to prevent US military forces from coming to the rescue of Americans fighting for their lives under organized and violent armed assault in Benghazi is well above the pay grade of a Senior Advisor to the President and Assistant for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs.

    That said, Valerie Jarrett was rumored to have called off the raid on Osama bin Ladin on 3 separate occasions prior the successful raid that went forward without her knowledge and which resulted in bin Ladin’s reported death. Jarrett obviously has President Obama’s ear, but no one elected her to high office and she was never subject to public vetting and confirmation by Congress. If the rumors are true, that she’s the one who issued the stand down order then we’ve got even bigger problems than a part-time president.

    Here, we should make a distinction between an authorization to proceed and a stand down order. In the Benghazi case both types of orders were involved. An authorization to proceed is just what it says, an affirmative instruction to carry out existing orders, it’s the go signal. And, if it’s necessary to cross and international border, a Cross Border Authorization must accompany the authorization to proceed.

    Only the Commander-in-Chief can issue a Cross Border Authorization. So, if President Obama wasn’t present in the White House during the 7 or 8 hours of the attack, he couldn’t have authorized US forces stationed in Spain, or Italy or Greece, or training in Croatia, or stationed on aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean Ocean to cross the Libyan border.

    However, there were US forces already in Libya, in Tripoli, ready to come to the aid of our men. There was also a C-130 Gunship on the tarmac loaded with fuel and ammunition for it’s advanced weapons systems ready to take off. Our forces in Tripoli didn’t need Cross Border Authorization to launch a rescue operation. However, they were prevented from coming to Benghazi by a stand down order.

    The question for now is, who issued the stand down order? We know Valerie Jarrett didn’t have the authority to stop the rescue operation, yet the operation was prevented from going forward. Did Jarrett usurp presidential authority and did Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, and Chairman JCS, General Martin Dempsey follow Jarrett’s instructions?

    If so, they got some ‘splaining to do.

    There are just so many wild rumors about BO on that night. But the only real fact known is BO was MIA for 7 hours before he left for the campaign trail in the morning. But if any one of the 7 hour absence rumor is true, it would be devastating except for one. The only somewhat undamaging rumor is he was in his bed alone, or with Mooch for that time frame. But no one has confirmed even that.

  7. York, there’s another, much more plausible, explanation for the whereabouts of Barack Obama on that fateful night: he was in the White House Situation Room and he’s the one who refused to provide Cross Border Authorization and he’s the one who issued the stand down order.

    That would indict Barack Obama as the one responsible for preventing a rescue attempt and for sending Susan Rice out to spew damnable lies designed to conceal the fact our Commander-in-Chief purposely turned his back on our fighting men and left them to die at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

    That explanation is as real as a heart attack, and just as deadly.

  8. The other rumor in the mill is the CIA had about 20 people there doing some secret mission which accounts for all the hush at the committee. So, four men were sacrificed for a CIA Op? The deeper the hole is dug, the worse this sounds, rumored and speculated it gets
