    When is he going to hold press conference on Libya?

      Obama is purposely stalling on addressing the American people, regarding Libya, until after the election. He and Axelrod are feverishly trying to concoct a scenario which corresponds to all the facts ... however, it will just be more lies and cover ups.

      I guess the new president will let us know what really happened after the election.

      BTW, am I the last one to know that a George Soros Company is counting our votes? Given this guys backround, this is very scarey stuff.

        yep, this is going to be one dirty election. and what's up with UN members coming on our soil to monitor our polling locations?????

        I want to know who invited the UN. Their sole reason for existance was to STOP conflicts. Haven't stopped one yet! Now there are discussions concerning Global taxes and small arms treaties? The founding fathers are weeping!

    Libya is a matter of national security and is still being handled. The fact that certain information can not be given out, so that those who need to be brought to justice aren't aware of what WE know is important. The President is doing the right thing by the american people, and it kills me that the problem some people really have with him is not how he does his job, but the fact that he is a BLACK man. Facts are facts: there are articles everyday about how the Presidents path will create millions of jobs, how the housing market is coming back even the head of JP morgan said that, healthcare, education etc. and YET comments like the ones above still say he is a bad President? That some people will vote for a man that LIES to your face everyday is beyond me, and that is why other countries laugh at how stupid they think we are. While we are making decisions based on skin color, other nations make decisions based on integrity. I am a white person voting for the President of this nation because the facts speak to me! The real facts, not the politics. Lets all have some respect. NEWS FLASH: historically Presidents do more in the SECOND term because they don't have to play "politics" anymore, thus President Obama is better able to handle issues than Mr. Romney will be during the next for years.

    STILL WHINING ABOUT LIBYA? EVEN MITT ROMNEY HAS HAD ENOUGH. HE KNOWS IT IS NOT A WINNING ARGUMENT. BUT PLEASE, GO AHEAD AND MAKE HIM SHOOT HIMSELF AGAIN OVER LIBYA. THERE'S STILL PLENTY OF TIME YET FOR UNDECIDED VOTERS TO SEE JUST HOW WEAK HE IS.

    IF YOU WANT THE NEOCONS TO TAKE OVER FOREIGN POLICY AGAIN, GO AHEAD AND VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY. THERE IS NOTHING EASIER THAN AN INEXPERIENCED PRESIDENT TO COAX INTO ANOTHER LONG AND EXPENSIVE WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST. DAN 'WMD' SENOR IS CHOMPING AT THE BIT.

      Whiniing? Tell that to the famiies of those who died. Tell them they are whining. Tell them all these e-mails which show the administration KNEW the truth 2 weeks before thay let on, mean nothing. Tell the families they are whining! Tell them they don't need to know the truth! Tell them! Let us all what they say to you in return!

      • Steveo

        My point is NOBODY is whining! Why is seeking and demanding the government come clean on an embarrassment that they KNEW was terrorism and yet decided to tap dance around for weeks! Pray tell, why is that whining? You see "REPUBLITARDS" whining but you fail to see "LIBTARDS" covering up? I got that right?

        As annoying as his comments are Steveo – he has most likely gained more votes for Romney with his ignorant posts than the majority of ours combined. This particular one will help quite a bit. You can't really expect these libs to see through the lies. They support this guy blindly. By default, ignorant people like throbbing member, who you and I both know would never lift a finger to help defend America, are helping Obama cover this situation up.

        John,

        Obama talked about "Silly Season" four years ago! Welcome to it! He also said,"if you don't have a record, you will make this election about "small things". The new Nostradamus!

        To boldly lie about Libya and no his supporters blame the right is beyond ignorant!

        IT SEEMS THE CIA HAS A LOT TO ANSWER FOR AND IT WILL DURING THESE INVESTIGATIONS, JUST LIKE HOW THEY WERE ANSWERABLE FOR THE 9/11 ATTACKS ON THE WTC AND THE PENTAGON. BUT TO ACCUSE THE PRESIDENT OF LYING ABOUT ANY OF THIS IS NOT JUST ABSURD BUT BORDERS ON THE LOONY CONSPIRACY THEORIES THAT THE GOVERNMENT COVERED UP THE ATTACKS. IF THAT IS WHO WE ARE NOWADAYS THEN JUST ADMIT IT. ASK YOURSELF IF YOU ARE THAT CRAZY BECAUSE IT'S AN ELECTION YEAR OR IF YOU ARE RATIONAL ENOUGH TO WAIT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THESE INVESTIGATIONS TO TELL US THE WHOLE STORY.

        5 MILLION DOLLARS THROBBING MEMBER!!! WHY WOULD OBAMA NOT LET THE CHARITIES HAVE THIS MONEY? ALL HE HAS TO DO IS RELEASE HIS RECORDS?

        October 26, 2012 at 1:45 pm |
      • DEcember 2012

        WHY WON'T TRUMP GIVE 5 MILLION TO CHARITY REGARDLESS? WHY SET CONDITIONS FOR CHARITY? TYPICAL REPUBLITARD RICH BOY, ONLY GIVES OUT MONEY WHEN THEY WANT SOMETHING.

        October 26, 2012 at 1:49 pm |
      • Steveo

        Let me get this straight. You don't hestitate to call Bush a liar about going to war in Iraq WMDs. Yet now it is all the CIAs fault? IF the president did not iknow, then why blame a video? If he did not know, then why did he take credit during the 2nd debate for "calling" it terrorism while in the Rose Garden and STILL went to Vegas? Days later, he went to the UN and blamed a video. If by chance the Presdient did not know:
        1. Why claim terrorism?
        2. Who dropped the ball?
        3. Why has NO ONE been fired?
        4. Why did Rrice bounce from show to show and blame a video and a spontanous crowd reaction to it AFTER it was "called" terrorism by the president?

        You are waiting for a final report, yet you don't need a final report before you decide to accuse folks of "Whining" over Libya?

        October 26, 2012 at 2:08 pm |

        5 MILLION DOLLARS TO A CHARITY OF OBAMA'S CHOICE. WHAT REASON COULD OBAMA HAVE FOR NOT HAVING THIS MONEY DONATED TO A WORTHY CAUSE?
        TYPICAL LIB, YOU WANT TO TAKE HIS 5 MILLION FOR NOTHING? WHY CAN'T OBAMA RELEASE HIS RECORDS? WHAT IS HE HIDING? YOU DUMB LIBS WERE ALL OVER ROMNEY ABOUT HIS TAXES? NOT A WORD ON WHY OBAMA CAN'T RELEASE THOSE RECORDS? WHY?

        October 26, 2012 at 3:00 pm |
    • John

      Go read Charles Woods statement about his son being killed and his interaction with Obama then come back and tell us how you feel about what Obama and his staff did while these Americans dies. I use to have respect for Hilliary, but she was involved in this mess as much as Obama.
      At this point it seems like you and Chris matthews are the only ones left who think this incident was about a movie.

      BTW, Throbbing member 2012 – because you are a lib maybe you can explain why Obama won'r release his college and passport records. You were one of the people who was pushing Romney to release more than two years of taxes. Just like all libs, you are a complete hypocrite. My feeling is you will totally ignore the 5 million dollars that Obama is holding back from charities.

        WHAT I SEE IS A LACK OF RESPECT FOR THESE FAMILIES BY REPUBLITARDS BY POLITICIZING THE TRAGEDY. THAT IS WHAT I SEE. THE FAMILIES ARE WAITING PATIENTLY FOR THE INVESTIGATION, JUST AS THE REST OF AMERICA WHO ARE NOT CAUGHT UP IN THE REPUBLITARD MENTALITY.

        October 26, 2012 at 11:28 am |
      • Steveo

        What you NEED to see is a lack of respect for these families by "LIBTARDS" lying and covering up.! All the administraion needed to say from the BEGINING was "We are investigating"! That is all But what did we get instead? Video, video, video! Now we get cables that asked for more security but weer turned down and emails PROVING it was terrorism ON DAY ONE! Yet Carney, Rice, Clinton, and Obama kept claiming video, video, video! There is the lack of respect for the families!

        October 26, 2012 at 11:38 am |
      • John

        As usual throbbing member you see it totally wrong. This administration covered up what happened to these people and expected the media and people like you to sweep it under the rug, similar to Watergate (but this situation is much worse than Watergate, people died here).
        Watergate happed before the election, just like this situation. And, like this situation, the press (and people like you) said it was simply politics because of the upcoming election. So they did not touch the story until way after the election. Once they did – Nixon was finished. BTW, I told you before – politicizing is like when Obama and Biden keep throwing out the "I killed Bin Laden" line. Do you think them saying this over and over again had anything at all to do with the 9-11 terror attacks?

        October 26, 2012 at 11:41 am |
      • John

        THROBBING MEMBER – 5 MILLION DOLLARS OBAMA IS STOPPING FROM GOING TO CHARITY. YOU DID NOT ANSWER... HOW MUCH BIRTH CONTROL CAN BE PURCHASED WITH 5 MILLION DOLLARS? HOW LONG CAN BIG BIRD STAY ON THE AIR WITH 5 MILLION DOLLARS? WE ALREADY KNOW HOW MANY "OBAMA" GREEN COMPANIES IT TAKES TO WASTE 5 MILLION DOLLARS... 1
        fROM THIS POINT FORWARD EVERY ONE OF YOUR POST WILL BE RESPONDED TO WITH
        "5 MILLION DOLLARS" ANSWER THE QUESTION!!! YOU STUPID LIBS CAN'T IGNORE THIS – ESPECIALLY AFTER GOING AFTER ROMNEY FOR MONTHS ABOUT RELEASING MORE THAN 2 YEARS OF TAXES.

        October 26, 2012 at 11:50 am |
      • Steveo

        John, I need to disagree with you here the Trump offer is ridiculou. If hiring teachers was a priority, Solydra money could have been used for that as well as Fiskar money too!

        Tell me Libs, you applaud when Obama claims Ronmey will outsource jobs to China. You realize the GOVERNMENT outsourced the building of electric sports cars to Finland. We couldn't build them here? You realize, the US JOB CZAR (who is also the CEO of GE) is moving the GE Medical Division from Wisconsin to China! Yet no lefty outrage. Why the silence concerning GOVERNMENT outsourcing???

        October 26, 2012 at 12:00 pm |
      • John

        The offer of 5 million was just another example to show the lack of transparency from Obama. Trump is basically cheap. He know he would never have to pay out this money.
        The silence from the left about Obama records, especially after hammering Romney about releasing more years of tax information, is very telling. It leads one to think these libs really do know Obama is a liar, but they follow him blindly anyway.

        October 26, 2012 at 1:08 pm |
      • Steveo

        Trump and the rest if us knew that offer was going nowhere! Four years ago Obama waa swept into office with many questions unanswered becausethe media failed in doing its job. These questions were either not asked or just ignored! I'm just saying Trump's offer was DOA from the the start!

      • DEcember 2012

        YOU KEEP HARPING ON 5 MILLION DOLLARS FOR CHARITY AS IF THAT'S SUCH A BIG DEAL, THAT IT IS ENOUGH FOR US TO PAY ATTENTION TO ANOTHER ONE OF DONAL TRUMP'S ANTICS. WELL, FOR MILLION DOLLARS IN CHARITY, BOTH CANDIDATES CAN TELL JOKES ABOUT THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER TO RICH GUYS WITH WHITE TIES.

        WHY WON'T TRUMP PUT HIS MONEY WHERE HIS MOUTH IS? FOR 5 MILLION IN CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION TO OBAMA AND AN ENDORSEMENT, OBAMA WILL TELL HIM WHATEVER HE WANTS. ISN'T THAT WHAT MITT ROMNEY IS DOING NOW? PUT UP OR SHUT UP.

      "Explosive new allegations surrounding the Benghazi attack emerged this morning, reporting that sources have confirmed that three urgent requests for military assistance sent from the CIA annex were all denied"......... no, we are not whinning.

      At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours - enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators

      Abound shuttered its Colorado plant during the summer and filed for bankruptcy, leaving “125 workers without jobs and taxpayers holding the bag for up to $60 million in defaulted loans.” (Human Events senior reporter Audrey Hudson has already detailed the efforts by the House to investigate the company.)

      The Catholic Church is the oldest Christian religion in the world.

      When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no hospitals.

      Today, one out of five people in this country receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital.

      When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no schools.

      Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3 million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools.

      Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the world.

      The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the tax payers would have to make up the loss.

      Also, all Catholic adoption services would come to an end. A human disaster.

      There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country.

      It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president.

      I am asking all of you to go to the polls and be united in replacing our present president with a president that will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions .

      Mr President, you said, "The USA is not a Christian Nation".

      You are wrong we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to Worship & Practice Freely.

    When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods, “he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that your son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’”

    Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”

      You bet there is outrage. The question is why:
      1. The media had failed and in the tank for Obama
      2. Differning stories on Libya (SOMEBODY LIED) 4 Dead Americans, military support an hour away an they were told to stand down, an Ambassador requested additional security, was tiold no and now said Ambassador is dead along with 3 others.
      3. President accuses Romney of outsourcing jobs all the while, THIS administration is doing the same
      4. Promises in 2012 are the same unkept promises from 2008.
      5. President accuses Romney of flip flopping on issues, president does the same on Gay marriage , except it is called "evolving".
      6. President takes credit for ending Iraqi war, but Bush signed the agreement to pull out
      7. Promised to halve the deficit in first term, yet increaed it by $6T.
      8. No budget that even Dems could support!

  9. 53%er!

    Ignorance is bliss… The Obama-nation wants to state that POTUS inherited the situation. That “he” inherited the two wars on credit cards. But let’s look at this a little closer… What did Bush inherit? Multiple attacks on the US that Osama bin Laden took credit for during the Clinton years… When the USS Cole was bombed, 11 months before 9/11 Clinton’s response was??? … Oh wait that’s right Clinton was too focused on saving face after the whole cheating on his wife, also wanting to leave office without starting a war. Oh no I said something bad about Clinton…. Let’s also not forget that Clinton was one of the MAJOR reasons that the financial crisis happened… Deregulating the financial sector was a horrible idea… Clinton’s whole economic growth was on “easy credit”. American households were spending more than they brought home; which creates more jobs to fill needs. But eventually credit runs out. CRASH!!!!! Don’t forget that Republicans controlled the Senate. The only thing that Obama has accomplished for America is putting us all in MORE debt, driving DOWN the value of money “inflation” and growing the federal government... That is already poorly run. If you need examples just Google government waste or use the postal service as an example… If we talk about someone supporting China, maybe you all should look at who owns the federal debt… How about all the NON job creating Obama has done. By the way, touting unemployment numbers that are skewed will get you nowhere... College affordable you say…FOR WHO??? Last time I check there at all time highs! Being Christian I especially like the fact that he has no care for “separation of church and state”. If a Christian based company chooses that it doesn’t support birth control, then it’s the employees’ choice to work there! NOT the government obligation to force companies to go against their faith!

    On libya...we had a CIA operative in contact with a AC130 he gave them the grid coord and had a lazer lock on the attackers, he ask for fire support from this gun ship and was refused...then refused two more times. This mess lasted for over seven hours while we had two intel drones flying and observing above. obama, panneta, and clinton can spin this anyway they like...I will not work. obama did not want to respond militarily...after having created a relationship with the Musim Brotherhood in Libya and Egypt..and also, he does not want the American voter to understand his policy in Africa and the middle east is an unmitigated disaster. Africa is EXPLODING and being over run by our enemys. So, you see, obama traded brave American lives for political gain. This will all come out eventually...but obama will , as he has, look you in the eye and lie is way around it. God help us!

The contrast between Mitt and barry/barack is very big...a decent accomplished and loving man...vs obama, the arrogent, narcissistic, and empty soul; who believes the road to success is the use of racism, hate, and division.

    Obama politicized what he wants. I personally don't think Libya or Bin Laden should be politicized, but if one is then the other is. It's like if you blame Bush for the meltdown, blame Obama for the lack of recovery. Personally, I believe there are soooo many other reasons to distrust Obama besides Libya. And, to add insult to injury, even in the debates that Obama won, Romney still won on economy, jobs, deficit, and healthcare- whic is a normal Democrat strong hold.

    • jerrylax

      actually, President Bush said Bin Laden did not spend much time in his head...he was not interested in politicizing this monster, probably knew where he was and felt spending or risking resources to get him was not of much real value. Obama, on the other hand needed some kind of victory and against the advice of those who know better took the risk...that is the risking of others lives...and then had the poor character to take the bows. Funny thing was we really should have taken him alive...and we should have taken gadhhafi alive as well, after all President Bush brought in the butcher of bagdad and he gave up some good info. For some reason obama did not want these guys to talk...wonder why. In fact why is it so much about obama is hidden?

NEITHER CANDIDATE IS A SAINT BUT AT LEAST OBAMA HAS A RECORD HE CANNOT RUN AWAY FROM WHILE ROMNEY IS ALL OVER THE MAP ON JUST ABOUT ANYTHING. HOW CAN YOU TRUST A CANDIDATE WHO HAS NO CORE? HE IS SO MALLEABLE, HE CAN EASILY BE COAXED INTO ANOTHER LONG EXPENSIVE WAR BY HIS NEOCON ADVISERS.

        Your blind devotion to 'Dear Leader' ... your Fuhrer, is touching ... but it's time for you to leave the Obama cult. Obama was given a chance ... and, in the past 4 years, he has nearly destroyed America. NOW, it's time for Barack and Michelle to abdicate their throne, so Mitt Romney can begin repairing the excessive damage caused by Obama's terrible policies. Good bye Barack, Michelle, Nancy, Harry, Jarret, and Axelrod, and all the unelected czars ... and, GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU ALL ... I'm sure you all will find another way to pick the pockets of hard working Americans !!!

        Facts are:
        1. Obama has mentioned that "While I was watching the events unfold in
        Benghazi" – so he was aware of the situation and watched the events as the attack was underway. Remember it was a 7 HOUR attack in Benghazi – Email have been discovered that explained that the attack was organized and well planned – and that an Al Qaeda group had claimed responsibility of the attack 5 hours BEFORE the attacks were over.
        2. The CIA operatives requested military support but were denied at
        least two times during the attack.
        3. Inteligence officials have stated "We do not just send people in
        without having a handle on the situation" – so what where they
        watching in the situation room? They knew that our Embassy was
        under attack. is that not within itself a valid reason to send in assistance
        to save the lives of American Citizens?
        4. Facebook postings were made during the attack taking
        responsibility for the attack by an al-Qaeda group. How would they
        know about the attack if they had not planned it? – I could see
        Clintons argument being valid about facebook postings not be proof of anything if the posting occurred days later.
        5. Email were sent that explained the attack as a well planned and
        with Mortar fire – again showing that it was obviously not
        spontaneous in nature.
        6. All of this was known to the White House no later than 2 hours after the attack began – and they did nothing to help.
        7. Lives could have been saved if they acted correctly and sent in assistance .
        8. The Obama Administration knew they blew this one and did not want
        to admit two import things.
        That al-Qaeda was still a threat and that they allowed Americans
        to die by their own stuborness to admin that al-Qaeda was still a
        threat after having killed Bin Laden.
        9. The Administration did what they always do – Look for someone to
        blame all this mess on.
        10. The Administration came up with the Internet Video Story – to
        shield responsibility away from themselves.
        11. The Press picked up the story and it gained traction. – so they
        stuck with it.
        12 Having brought attention to the internet video – individuals in other
        countries were attacked and killed as a result – who are those deaths
        now on?
        12. They sent Sec of State Clinton out to condemn the Internet
        Video and to explain that the US does not have any responsibility for
        the video.
        13. You could argue that since the Administration and State Dept.
        used the video as a Scape Goat in their made up story about the
        Benghazi attacks that they themselves ARE responsible for the video
        getting the publicity at therefore are responsible for the events that
        occurred around the world once the video was given the publicity from
        them. The rest of the world had never heard of this video not did
        they care until the Obama Administration brought it to their
        attention.
        14. The Administration trotted out Susan Rice to once again continue
        to blame the attack on the internet video and insisted that the attack
        was spontaneous in nature. This withing itself is puzzling as Ms Rice is not the person to be making such a press conference – and she was therefore “Selected” by the administration to test the water on this story. If it blows up in her face they can deny the story as a mistake. However at the time it was believable to the press and public so they stuck to their guns. This was a critical mistake and will be their un-doing In the end.
        15 Ms Rice went onto to attend 5 TV programs where she each time
        continued to lay blame on the Internet Video.
        16 President Obama Went to the UN to discuss how the internet video
        led to the attack. He also called the video disgusting and vile. While the face the video is in poor taste it had nothing to do with the Benghazi attacks and never was relevant.
        17. The story was starting to lose some legs – so the
        administration outed the man that created the video – basicaly in the
        process the offered him up to the Muslim World .
        18. Obama and State Dept Apologize for the video again.
        19. Story starts to unravel –Libya Continues to state it was a planned attack and never veered from that statement – a statement they made initially after the attack.
        20 The democratic Party Circles the wagons – and no longer want to
        discuss the issue until after the election. The president refuses to discuss the matter and will not discuss it unless he has no other option.

    There are MORE unemployed people now, in 2012, than when Obama was elected in 2008. His "5 million" jobs created don't even keep up with the 7.2 million population growth, not to mention the 10 million jobs lost and the 10 million jobs replaced (good paying jobs with low wage ones). To Obama, a job is a job... he doesn't care if you were once making 100k and are now making minimum wage. He doesn't count the under-employed among his numbers.

    Obama's policies DO NOT WORK.

    Let's look at this another way... if Obama's policies forced more middle class people into poverty, they would become more dependent on government assistance.

    If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If give a man a welfare check, food stamps, free cell phones, section 8 housing, engergy assisatance, free medical, and free education, he'll vote democrat for life.

    By creating more poor people, Obama increases the power of the democratic party... The middle class is being devastated and it's all part of Obama's plan.

    In the last 4 years, the price of food, gas, utilities and insurance have gone up faster than anytime in my life... I was born in the 1960's. Hyper-inflation which Obama has done NOTHING to stop.

    All this combined with his coddling to muslims and out of control spending (raising the national debt by 6.5 trillion in 3.5 years...)

    Knowing this, how can anyone vote for Obama ?
