When Will Obama
Respond to Benghazi Attack?

Commentary Magazine, by Alana Goodman

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/10/2012 5:41:37 AM

Libya’s prime minister-elect Mustafa Abushagur — who was voted in on Sept. 12 — was removed in a no-confidence vote on Sunday. As the Washington Post reports, this could mean further delays for the FBI investigation into the Benghazi attack: The decision by Libya’s legislature means that the government may remain without permanent, democratically-elected leadership for many weeks. But without a government in place, the investigation into the attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans may be a low priority for Libyans.

Can we spell N-E-V-E-R ?

But he has responded, Alana; he blamed it on an American filmmaker.

Done.

He will not respond. Such attacks have to be planned, and I am sure Obama made sure long ago that military hardware and support are nowhere near the targets. Lobbing a few cruise missiles like Clinton did won't help him now. He has already said on TV many times that it was a video, not terrorists who attacked the consulate and killed the ambassador and three others. To shoot missiles now means he lied or is stupid. He is too vain to give the order in any event.

No missile October surprise, IMHO.

Obama isn't one to let a foolish consistency stop him from doing the politically expedient thing. I do expect him to send some well-publicized drone attacks the last week in October. He will announce the destruction of several top Al Qaida operatives. Whether or not they actually were even Al Qaida or top operatives, and whether or not they are actually destroyed.

Has anyone thought that the Benghazi Attack was orchestrated to give The Wun a chance to flex his Alpha Male non-muscles?

If people can say that 9/11 was a Bush conspiracy, we can play that game too.

Apologies for double-post, but yes - I do believe (and I have, since the git-go) that the Benghazi and Cairo turmoil was staged just for this very reason: So our ChiefUberHawk could play Hero again just in time for the morons out there to remember how great he is at playing war games. Ambassador Stevens, and the other three Americans, were just BUMPS IN THE ROAD.

Watch for photos from war room of Hero in Action.

(I'll watch for tremendous disaster.)

Romney responded quickly to the killing of the Ambassador and 3 others.
The msm tried to crucify him. Remember?
Romney's timely, correct response proves that HE indeed will be ready to govern from day 1.
Obama has been voting "present" for 4 years and needs to go, and take the slimy lieing press and Big Bird with him.

Not sure on that #10, 11. The situation has just been too bizarre up to this point to think they have a final "end game". Remember he can't offend his anti-war base. Their concerns are golden.

Look at the last paragraph. It lists the riskiest option as doing nothing. Unfortunately, that is Obama's favorite modus of operation, in most any situation. He avoids "political liability" like Superman avoided cryptonite. What if his actions failed and he was made to look bad?! ha ha ha ha. That ship already sailed.

Oh one thing is for sure-he'll wait ok, as the article mentions-quite a bit of waiting. Stuffed shirts can't get off the dime. So this administration is concerned about sovereignty? Ha! Like the action in Libya by NATO, before?

Remember when there's a terrorist attack, the democrats call the police or pretend anyway.

There is a good chance that some Libyans will either be killed or captured on Obama's orders before the election. When it happens you can bet that Obama will be on national TV reading a speech off his teleprompter explaining that he personally gave the mission order.

Al Qaeda & Co. committed a strategic blunder with their Benghazi attack. It's not in their best interest to make Obama appear weak and lose the election. Imagine how easily they could outmaneuver him during his second term. Thank goodness they're ostensibly too crazy to recognize this.

Probably on or about November 3rd in order to dominate the news cycle up to election day. The Wag the Dog scenario won't work for them this time, but they'll try it anyway. Some of our warriors will be put at risk for Empty Chair's re-election propects. That's absolutely disgusting. There's another "aspirin factory" somewhere getting lined up for destruction.

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

What Happened to the Tea Party?
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/17/2014 4:50:07 AM     Post Reply
It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear.

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
