David Brooks Advice to Romney:
'Don't nitpick on small foreign
issue of the past' like Benghazi

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 10/20/2012 6:24:08 AM

Call it counter-intuitive, but Mitt Romney shouldn’t focus heavily on what many conservatives are calling President Barack Obama’s biggest foreign policy blunder during Monday night’s upcoming presidential debate, according to New York Times columnist David Brooks. In his weekly appearance on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” Brooks said the debate, which will be dedicated to the topic of foreign affairs, is an opportunity for Romney to talk about other issues than the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya. “Don’t nitpick about Benghazi,” Brooks said.

If this (and the creased pants thing) is the kind of stuff you have to say to get invited to the lib cocktail parties, it's not worth it. Of course, of course!!! he said it on NPR.

If you read all over the internet, especially the liberal sites like Mother Jones, MSNBC, CNN, etc, that is their line: "Don't you dare talk about Benghazi." Brooks is the definition of a RINO. He admits he voted for Obama 2008. He's a liberal. He's just embarrassed about it.

Look who is giving the advice, then decide. Benghazi is the blue dress. The 1 to 1.18 million odds that a lie has been finally caught and exposed. The voters (At least the independents) fully understand this.

Let's review history, shall we? In 1972 there was a break-in that was politically motivated. No one got killed, or even injured. The dust-up by the Media and the Left was SO GREAT, a Republican President RESIGNED in shame (and to avoid Impeachment which would tear apart our nation).

In 2012, a Middle East Consulate BEGGED for more security forces, after there were many various terrorist attacks in the area for a few MONTHS. These requests were IGNORED and the Ambassador was SET UP for death by this administration. Four Americans were massacred horribly. The Media yawned. The prezdint went to Vegas. And they ALL covered up and LIED about the entire situation.

Up to date now? BTW - The prezdint took TWO WEEKS to admit that this was a TERRORIST ATTACK - after LYING TO AMERICA AND THE UN as to WHO WAS TO BLAME. He is STILL in office. No charges. No shame. No Impeachment. No jail time. He's a Leftist, of course. So are the Media folks.

Yo..yo..Dave right. Better stick to things like giving up our rights to the United Nations!! Like letting the butt holes tax our personal bank accounts, take over the Internet and use some stinking Arms Treaty to disarm our citizens!! Mitt don't have to talk about Bengazi at all there is plenty of dirt without even getting to Libya.

At the ceremony/photo-op of the Americans coming home in coffins, obama seemed bored. Clinton seemed really upset. And brooks is a nitwit and should be classified as a typical liberal hack of the nytimes.

Rush is saying that the real Achilles Heel is that obama went fundraising the next day. Shows his priorities.

Number One job of POTUS is to protect Americans. When it becomes obvious to the libs that obama couldn't care less about national safety, he is finished.

David Brooks is such a reliable Liberal Plantation tool.

Benghazi is a deadly microcosm showing the chaos and collapse of Obama's larger foreign policy.
In Benghazi Obama threw our Ambassador under the bus, followed by Hillary, his 'intelligence' chief, and various strawmen and mini-movie makers to be named later.
The little movie maker remains in jail as hostage to Obama's deadly foreign policy.

Obama has lied about Benghazi for 5 weeks.
Benghazi is where the ugly and empty underside of Obama has been exposed.

David Brooks is a pathetic-loser-wannabe at the NYSlimes, and a tired old liberal-hack disguised as a "conservative". Is there anyone out here who actually CARES what he says about anything? Brooks and Peggy Noonan, the Frick and Frack of the old GOP. Keep your "advice" David, and continue to salivate over obama. Remember, he's the guy you said had the "perfect crease" in his trousers and was going to be a "great president". Jerk.

Hey! If PBS, NPR and the NYT can ignore Fast & Furious, the failed "Stimulus", increased poverty, U-6 unemployment frozen at 14.7%, the falsity of man caused global warming, and the delusional emperor in the White House, they can easily ignore Obama's lies and failures in the Middle East. Obama's promise of socialism outweighs all the misery he has inflicted for these highly paid elites.

Here's some better advice:

Hammer Benghazi, and relate it to the plethora of other foreign policy failings, with both past and future costs.

Benghazi becomes the defining symbol of the whole stinking mess.

Good grief. brooks & all the other barry supporters have really sold their souls in order to protect their messiah. Benghazi represents all that is wrong with this administration, which starts and ends with lies. Four Americans are dead & it's being swept under the rug by the sock puppet press for one reason & that's to protect a failed, disinterested, disengaged barack obama.

Everybody knows this IS the issue & will be the final nail. That's why the left doesn't want to talk about it. Period.

Obama provided Mitt a baseball bat for the next debate, and the small minded Obama will focus on Benghazi in preparations as to what lies to tell. And then Mitt "will" strike O out by focusing on the entire collapse in foreign policy taking place right now. None of it in response to Brooks.
As someone who closely (military viewpoint) observed the collapse of the Shah and replacement by the Ayatollahs under Carter and the 30 years of attacks on Americans that has led to, Obama has made a much worse situation that our children will be dealing with if a World War doesn't cause it all to go up in smoke first.

Four Americans were murdered including our Ambassador who had said that there was a hit put out on him and he needed security. He was still asking for help on the day he was murdered. Hillary and Obama did not have his back. He was too busy campaigning, running off to one party after another. Partying with Beyonze and her crowd was more important to him. Who knows where Hillary was; she was obviously not at home for that 3AM call. The MSM talked about Travon Martin and called for more attention to his killer than they have for our Ambassador. Shame on them and this regime.

Brooks is unable to see this as a question of competence. This President has been totally disengaged throughout his Presidency. He has been campaigning since the first week of his term and is "addicted" to the adoring, nodding crowds.(this will be what he will miss most - while the wife will miss all the perks). It also comes down to integrity and doing the right thing - where he has clearly shown his stripes.

If the voters come to understand what happened at Benghazi and why, the man you so eagerly voted for in 2008 will lose ignominiously. You and your employers can't bear the thought of that happening. That hopium is addictive, ain't it?

Just get it over with, David, follow Arlen S.P.E.C.T.R.E.'s footsteps over to the dark side, and admit that you're a Democrat for whom the sight of Obama gives a sexually electric charge up your crease. Standing beside Brooks, the principle free David Gergen looks like Ronald Reagan.

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening.

After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week. Obama will be hosting two events on the economy

Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people understand the world.These are just some of the ­beliefs behind the bling — the gaudy Five Percent Nation ­medallions worn by Jay Z and Carmelo Anthony. Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay Z’s better half, Beyoncé — but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside. Asked once if the group’s symbol — an eight-point star with the number

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
