Twenty Questions
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/21/2012 5:28:44 AM

At about 3 p.m. on Thursday, October 18, Barack Obama strode into the Manhattan studios of Comedy Central for a taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The two men discussed several issues, including Libya. Stewart noted the exchange between Obama and Mitt Romney on that subject at the debate earlier in the week and asked Obama about the “confusion within the administration” over the attack that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead in Benghazi. “Why? What was it that caused that confusion?” -Stewart asked.

You're not hearing many detractors fromt he left on the Benghazi attack but they are really shaken that state dept. people weren't defended. Even if they want to ignore Obama lies on it,they know deep down inside this was a hideous failure.So Obama takes refuge with other leftist who will swallow his excuses.

The left is also miffed about the lack of action in Syria,What they don't realize is Syria is more sophisticated in their defenses than a helpless Gadaffi.The attacks on Tripoli came from the Benghazi area which is an alqueda stronghold.So we were idiots for helping them to begin with.If Bashar was so intent on killing his own people,why has he let 100's of thousands flee to Jordan for refuge? Syria is just another checklist country for the radicals to get hold of.

Obama set the precedent of mob rule in Egypt and Libya and the left loves mob rule so the root for Syria to be overthrown.

Didn't we just help Libyan rebels dispose of Gadaffi? And are those the same rebels who killed our ambassador and fellow Americans? Or do we even know?
I'm confused... thanks to Obama and Clinton.

I think the term to be used here is "unintended consequences" caused by idiots on foreign police in the White house.

The more I see about this the more I think this was supposed to be the set-up for Obama's October surprise. Here's the story line they wanted to sell.
--Our consulate gets attacked, apparently by a mob of Muslims angry over an anti-Muslim video.
--After a couple of weeks, Obama discovers that the attack was a pre-planned assault on U.S. interests.
--Days before the election, Obama authorizes a strike which takes out those who planned and executed this attack on the U.S.

Unfortunately for Obama, their story fell apart before they could get all the pieces in place.

Strange link. I got to the article way down on the page. But format is bad.
To the point of the article that Obama has been blowing smoke and endangering lives to keep power, I think even lefties see that he is not up to the job. But lefties in media and looking to government for money and perks, nothing matters but what they can get. Not one person in the Democrat party cares about the country. I would be so ashamed to be Sen Man-something of West Virginia, or Nelson of Florida. They might be moderate Dems but that only means their price is higher than that of lefty Dems.

I forget the exact time frame, but seem to recall that Obie was MIA from his daily briefings for months.

Mark Thiessen, American Enterprise Institute, reported on this on Fox News and in the WaPo.

The excuse given by Tommy Vietor for his failure to attend the briefings was that he was "sophisticated" and preferred to read the daily briefings.

What the sycophantic Vietor wasn't thinking about was Obie's giving up the exposure to the give and take of a face-to-face briefing. Questions asked, questions answered.

And who really knows whether Obie bothered to read all that fine print when he was busy campaigning and swanning around the celebrity circuit?

This Lair in chief is not going to answer any direct questions about any subject matter unless he wants to do so, for his gain not yours nor our Country's. He doesn't care who dies, nor for what reasons either.

He wants to continue his game plan of America's destruction and that is all that matters to him, getting re-elected so he can march on lying to us while behind the scenes he does his "magic" with his buds...

Evil is here, has been and wants to stay. I'll see how many of my fellow citizens have become so stupid to run with this clown on Nov. 6th.

Steve I dont see these: Per Bret Baier report at time of attack on stevens real time communications to DC. Is this not something President would have been alterted to? And if so, since there was not sgred of evid this was associated with Film the questions becomes simple 1) who got info from benghazi thta day and 2) what and when was it told to Prsident?

Any one of those questions would put Obama's campaign out of it's misery - not the questions themselves, Obama's response.

At this moment, Tucker Carlson is on FOX pointing out that the entire media (New York Times leading the way) is either ignoring the Benghazi story or supporting Obama's absurd excuses.

Obama = Carter (regarding Muslim extremists)

Carter gave Iran to Muslim extremists.
Obama has given Libya & Egypt to Muslim extremists.

In Monday's debate, the Libya & Egypt embassy fiascoes should seal Obama's fate, just like the Iran embassy fiasco did to Carter.

This will help you to understand Obama's foreign policy. Choose one:
A. Obama is a muslim or Islamophile.
B. Obama hates America and wants to see her diminished.
C. Obama is a socialist (or worse) who wants to subjugate this country.
D. Obama (and his Chicago thugs) will lie, cheat, slime their opponent, do anything to get another 4 years.
E. All of the above.

Obama's "Foreign Policy" is just that...foreign to anyone who loves America. Heck, the man acts like a foreigner.

American sovereign soil was under attack and being observed in real time for hours. Of course the president was informed. Military assets were an hour away. Obama did nothing.

So Romney’s question for Obama is, “Mr. President, you watched our consulate and our Ambassador under attack for hours, with military assets and hour away, and did nothing. Why?”

These 20 questions need to be posed to the prez tomorrow night and / or by a Senate investigatory committee to Clinton (I cannot recall), Clapper and Patraeus.
Subpoena Jarrett, Axelrod and zippy so he can claim executive privilege. Then, begin Impeachment hearings on all above mentioned.

All y'all complaining about a bad link, update your browsers. It works just fine.

As for the 20 questions, it amazes me that Obama goes on Jon Stewart to chat while the mastermind of the attack sips a "frappe`" without a whit of fear of reprisals or even a wrist-slap from our own government.

Do I have to ask the 21st question? "Who does Obama consider to be America's friends and whom does he consider to be our enemies? Everything Muslim is sacrosanct. Everything Christian, Israeli, British, traditional, Constitutional and moral are our enemies.

All right, God. We get it. We repent and rend our garments in shame for turning our country's back on you. So please give us our country back. We promise never to do it again. And all God's people said....

# 16 Priceless.
Someone in the Oval Office watched four Americans die ,
perhaps literally in real time as the video was coming in ,
because it was not politically helpful
for Obama to have his mess in Libya exposed.
This is criminal.
Axelrod or Jarrett or Obama or all three
are accessories to murder , IMHO.
Obama can try and claim he went to bed
and someone else made the decision
not to send help , but, that sets
him up for dereliction of duty.
BTW- I am disgusted by the term Ambassador Stevens
" and three others ".
Even FOX uses it.
The three " others " were former SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
And Air Force veteran Sean Smith.
Their names should always be said along
with Christopher Stevens.
Obama also lied about the roles of Glen Doherty
and Tyrone Woods in his Saturday
radio address 6 days later.
The media is just as complicit as the White House
in this scandalous cover up.
It is unconscionable for the CINC to be yukking it up on a Comedy Show when the death toll of Americans is so high
on his watch.
1,511 US soldiers and Marines have died in Afghanistan since he was inaugurated.
264 US soldiers and Marines have died in Iraq.
Plus , Christopher Steven, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods in Libya.

It´s scary to think the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, with its relentless drought and wind that ravaged millions of acres in West Texas, could return. But there are some worrisome signs, according to the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Reports this week from county agents in the Panhandle, South Plains and Rolling Plains indicate farmers and ranchers are working with "very difficult" conditions, according to a news release. Lubbock County, on the southern edge of the Panhandle, has seen only a trace of moisture in March with sustained high winds and gusts of 58 mph on March 18, according to the county´s

When Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu stated that the Russian troops along Ukraine´s borders were only conducting "training exercises" and have no "intention to cross Ukraine´s borders or to engage in any aggressive actions," Ukrainians rolled their eyes. And when President Vladimir Putin told Ukrainians "Don´t believe those who terrify you with Russia, who shout that other regions will follow Crimea. We do not want Ukraine´s division. ... We want Ukraine to be a strong, sovereign, and self-sufficient state," Ukrainians shrugged. The problem is, even if Putin and Shoigu were being sincere, Moscow has lost all credibility among most Ukrainians and

The Washington Post released a lengthy article this weekend based on a survey of 819 veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Buried deep in the article by Post reporter Rajiv Chandrasekaran, who spent two years in Iraq as the Post’s bureau chief, is this bombshell: “When it comes to their most-senior commander, the vets decisively prefer George W. Bush to Obama. Only a third approve of the way Obama is handling his job, and 42 percent of them think he has been a good commander in chief despite his decisions to bring troops home from Iraq, wind down the war in Afghanistan and increase resources for veterans.

U.S. President Barack Obama ended a four-nation foreign trip on Saturday in the same situation as he began it - facing great uncertainty about a diplomatic way out of the Ukraine crisis. His diplomatic consultations in The Hague, Brussels and Rome over the past week all resulted in a strong show of unity between the United States and Europe that Russia must face consequences should it move against southern or eastern Ukraine. But it remains an open question whether the European allies would be able to stomach the kind of crippling sanctions required to significantly undermine Russia´s economy since some of their

Just as supporters of the Affordable Care Act were celebrating the news that the law’s new health insurance exchanges had enrolled 6 million Americans—below the initial 7 million target for the first year, but not shabby given the technical fiascos last fall—comes a reminder of how far we still have to go before the law comes close to achieving its purpose. Gallup has released the results of a 2013 survey asking Americans whether they “did not have enough money to pay for the healthcare and/or medicine they and their families needed.” The eye-opening results are, essentially, a final snapshot of

Democratic Vice President Joe Biden is running for president, and he’s eager to ingratiate himself with every political constituency, flatter every donor and pander to every ethnic group between now and the 2016 nomination. Biden is best known for his many gaffes and smears. In August 2012, he told African-Americans that GOP policies “are going to put y’all back in chains.” These days, he’s trying eyewash, sycophancy, fawning and even blarney. “Eleven million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view,” he told a group of American employers, whom he assumed would empathize with unknown, low-skill foreigners merely because they share the

Weeds and rubble cover 90 acres along Long Island Sound. A room with cinder-block walls sits locked in an empty in Brooklyn basement. And a gleaming industrial palace has failed to bring jobs to the banks of Ohio´s Mahoning River. These are monuments to failed central planning. Eminent domain, state and local subsides, and federal-corporate partnerships have yielded these lifeless fruits, failing to deliver the rebirth, community benefits and jobs they promise — but succeeding in delivering profits to the companies that lobby for them. The economic philosophy at work here isn´t capitalism or socialism. It´s corporatism: the belief that government and

Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the
