Its Jimmy Carter All Over Again!!

Look I know I said I was going to stay out of the National Election but this is nuts!!

A day after the American Embassy  in Cairo was attacked,  Fox News Reports:

The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other American staff members were killed Tuesday in an attack on the U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, the White House confirmed. President Obama, in a written statement issued Tuesday morning, called the attack “outrageous” and “senseless.”

Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed Tuesday night when he and a group of embassy employees (Marines) went to the consulate to try to evacuate staff. The protesters, angry over a film that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, were firing gunshots and rocket propelled grenades. All of the other officials — three in all — hold senior security positions in Benghazi.

This like 1979 all over again.

Iran hostage crisis, in U.S. history, events following the seizure of the American embassy in Tehran by Iranian students on Nov. 4, 1979. The overthrow of Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlevi of Iran by an Islamic revolutionary government earlier in the year had led to a steady deterioration in Iran-U.S. relations. In response to the exiled shah’s admission (Sept., 1979) to the United States for medical treatment, a crowd of about 500 seized the embassy. Of the approximately 90 people inside the embassy, 52 remained in captivity until the end of the crisis.


The economy is in the dumps. The real Unemployment rate is 14%. Our 3.5 year long national tour of apology of our foreign policy has finally embolden the Islamic World once again to attack our Embassies to take hostage and even kill our Diplomats.

What was Mr. Obama’s response to this “Act of War?”

“I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens,” President Obama said in a statement Tuesday morning. “Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.”

Obama said he’s directed the administration to provide “all necessary resources” to support security for U.S. personnel in Libya and to increase security at diplomatic offices around the world.

“While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants,” he said.

Really,… another Apology?

Ronald Reagan….. Pray for us!

  1. Mark Clemons Mark Clemons says:

    And the dumblicans 55 million strong run flip flop Mitt, disenfranchise 40 million independents and expect to win against the dumbercrates 72 million strong. Sounds like Laura and Rush are on target, time to fold the grand old party and start over. The independents will be the deciding factor this cycle and the faux BS won’t cut it, oh it does sound good to the 30million or so hard core base but the dung is going to lead to one major defeat. It is getting so out of line and bias it is an embarrassment to a large percentage of non-hateful republicans.

    • Dan OBrien Dan OBrien says:

      Stay on point for Christ Sakes, Mark.

    • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

      Mark, ? Your demeaning name calling shows more than you think. Maybe you should not allow any of those 55 million to pay american green backs at Smiths Drive Inn. Funny how people like you want to insult someone because of their creed, politics or religion and then your so happy to take their money.

      • Mark Clemons Mark Clemons says:

        Just a little upset that the grand old party has degraded to the point that guarantees a win for Obama, if it your part also it would behoove you and the base to focus on some solutions. Time to stop running against Obama and start running on what can be done to return America to its greatness, Dan mentioned Regan, I remember Regan’s positive message.
        I am an equal opportunist I will not discriminate based on political views, creed, or religion, can’t wait for this cycle to be over maybe I will be able to refriend my friends that defriended me. LYM

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Mark, I didn’t pay much attention to either of the conventions. FWIW Romney did have a very positive message. It actually reminded me of Reagan, the first Republican I voted for President.
          As for unfriending, that’s a shame. I have people that post on my FB that often have very different positions than mine but I like to hear their point of view. When I ask you to defend your points here it’s usually out of respect. I try to look more at the intention behind what’s said than mere words alone.

        • Terry Elam Terry Elam says:

          Then he raised taxes 11 times.

  2. Terry Elam Terry Elam says:

    What would President O’Brien do? Condemn 5,000 troops to death in an attempt to rebuild Egypt? Attack Iran? Hire an actor to bluff them? What’s the plan sam?

    • Dan OBrien Dan OBrien says:

      I guess all your aforementioned ideas have more merit than your obvious alternative of Surrender.

      • Terry Elam Terry Elam says:

        I just can’t see committing 5000 lives other than my own without solving any problems as being a sign of honor. I suggest you buy a ticket and fix it yourself instead of blaming it on the President and shrugging your shoulders. That in itself is surrender. Of course, I know you’re just repeating the words of another.

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Terry, have you noticed that it’s been relatively peaceful on our home soil. That didn’t happen just because we crossed our fingers.

          • Terry Elam Terry Elam says:

            So far we’ve seen 2 bad attacks.. Once under Roosevelt and once under Bush. In the later, trillions were spent along with thousands of our own sacrificed while going after the wrong perpetrator.
            Charlies Manson sought to start a race war, osama a religious one. One’s in prison, the other is dead after a certain amount of success.
            We were played and the man you had in charge is getting a great retirement from it. Like Reagen, he claimed credit for what he did not do.

            • Dan OBrien Dan OBrien says:

              Oh yeah and It took amazing bravery to send others to execute a 10 old dead or alive “shoot on sight” warrant on Osama Bin Lauden …. Give me a break…

              The guy acts like he pulled the trigger or something. Warm and cozy in the White House situation room is not the same as even piloting a Texas National Guard Interceptor or captaining a PT Boat or Serving in the Navy or Army… You don’t get that kind of valor or honor by osmosis or hanging around men in uniform.

            • Terry Elam Terry Elam says:

              and many believe Reagen personally tore down walls. The truth of the matter is that none of our Presidents actually did very much on their own yet they all took credit for the policies. In Obama’s case it was directing the troops to the correct country. In Bush’s case it was, well I just can’t think of anything Bush directed besides the emptying of the coffers.

            • desertrider desertrider says:

              Terry said: “In Obama’s case it was directing the troops to the correct country.”
              You actually think obama was needed to direct them to correct country? So does that mean that obama knew where osama was, obama was out scouring the Afghan desert and ran across the osama compound, snuck back and told the commanders?

            • Terry Elam Terry Elam says:

              Everybody knew what osama was in. Even Geraldo Rivera knew it. It was Obama’s campaign promise.
              Bush wanted Iraq, McCain wanted Iran, Obama wanted osama. Anybody in the position could have given the order. They didn’t. Obama was able to acquire the position and he did. It did take Obama to instigate and approve the orders that no republican would. What you want to read more in to it, well that’s just you. You and Carl Rove and Fox.
              Do any of you have any original thoughts of your own or are you simply looking for reasons to pout?

            • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

              Terry, please explain what Reagan claimed and the man I had in charge, whatever that means claimed. You talk like a politician in generalities that usually are condemning but offer no solutions. Tell us Terry, what is your point and what is your solution?

          • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

            Mark, 1 star? please explain what you disagree with.

            • Mark Clemons Mark Clemons says:

              you deserve all of one
              who said something along the line of “ there will be a gun behind every blade of grass”?
              No nation or army will invade as long as the american citizens are armed.
              Are we arming the next generation with hate when we use drones that have a bad record of inflecting collateral damage?

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Terry, you feel that committing your life without solving any problems is a sign of honor? If that’s the case you should be committed. By chance have you been gleaning in the peyote fields again?

    • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

      Terry, that’s like asking Paul Revere what he would do instead of taking heed to the warning.

  3. They just missed the photo op of all time, Bush-o-nator was sucking his thumb just before that. Really Dan, FOX is the best source ??? Does any of us or Mittless have any concept of the security provided for these locations around the world? Does the president set those up? or does the staff ? and then advise the prez ? as far as I’m concerned all these countries and people who want to return to the 7th century should,,,with our help of course, why do we waste our time and lives in any of them, all of this killing for religion (sic)

    • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

      Richard said, “all of this killing for religion”
      What religion is that?
      What fool thought that the Iran backed Muslim Brotherhood was a kinder and gentler from of Islam? My guess is it’s the same guy that thought he could sit down and just have a reasonable talk with them.

      • what religion is that? Most of the middle east is one kind with small changes from place to place, all goverments who base there laws on religion should be on their own, like I said let them and their gods sort it out.
        Organized religion is a man made thing, it has and always will be the source of war

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Richard, please explain how religion was the source of Iraq’s invasion of Quate? BTW, the list goes against that premise but bigots try to assert that wars are because of religion. Though it sometimes may be the case it is a false assumption to make such statements which come from your anti god sentiments.

    • Dan OBrien Dan OBrien says:

      Really Richard a quote is a quote no matter the news source.

      What is it with the “Mittless”? You will notice I don’t play word games with Obama’s name… I expect the same courtesy. Lets talk the issues and the facts, as you see them. I could refer to the President’s full name and suggest that because his name would indicate that he is of the Muslim faith and there by, incapable of having any objectivity, but I do not think that is so… I’m not going to play the name calling game….

      Stick to the present facts as they relate to past facts.. Use the last 4 years juxtaposed to the former 8 all you want. I do know this George W. Bush would have responded with a form of force that would have left no doubt in the Arabs worlds mind….. At least when old George was in Office Islam became almost docile…. Nothing like the threat of annihilation to bring a People or Religion into compliance with International Normalcy.

      Lets stop with the name calling.

      • Mark Clemons Mark Clemons says:

        Bushama, obamney does it really matter as long as the private banks control our economy and fund our undeclared wars. Without a reset we will be involved in hostilities until our wealth is exhausted. It is crazy at this point to think we will change direction if we change presidents, I don’t see much change from the last decade to this one.

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Not much change? Debt, out of control, no budget sent to congress, unemployment around 13% if you use the same standards of when President Jimmy Carter was in office. States and cities are bankrupt. Mark, really, not much change?
          As to the Federal Reserve, I’m there with you on that. We’ve been scammed.

  4. Dan docile? Iraq and Afghanistan are/were ever docile? Mitt jumps out before the prez and makes general statements about what he would do, but no details, seems that is his style, to make political points based on this,…. is sick and typical of the times.
    Bush started the wars that have killed too many of our young people and for what? FOR EVERYONE here who likes to monday morning quarterback, as far as I’m concerned any government that is religious based around the world, we should with draw economic and military support, let them and their gods sort it out, then we can go pick up what is useful to us after the fact (where are those WMD’s?)
    I am waiting for a reply from a friend who just retired from the service and spent his last year in these very countries for the reality of these embassies, I expect it is a lot different than most here have a clue.
    Will I share that info here, nope, I’m done commenting, I’m as pissed as anyone at this and stated before, if it were me there would be a nuclear hole in the ground where the city that this took place in once stood
    You may all return to your political rants, like anyone of the parties could really do anything,,,,,

    • Dan OBrien Dan OBrien says:

      We whacked them by the 10s of thousands…. 10s of thousands…. They wanted Paradise we gave them one way tickets to the land of fat young boys by the 100s of thousands…. We have NOTHING to be ashamed of… 9/11 gave the American People every right to send them to their great Haj…… Lets not forget….

      You will notice that the Arab nations not in direct conflict were silent of not totally cooperative and compliant. The record speaks for itself.

    • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

      Wow Richard, you have a friend that retired from the service that occupied in these countries so somehow you think that it’s going to give you some special credence to your rational? I’ll trump your service guy with friends at the Pentagon and Military Intelligence Officers but I don’t think it would be wise for me to speak on their perspectives without actually knowing it but you infer that your freinds will confirm what you have said without actually knowing it. As for the WMDs that most democrats believed existed, time seems to confirm their existence rather than exclude it. Do a little research on WMDs and put a shirt on. You look like a Nuclear Explosion WMD on a moped. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syria_and_weapons_of_mass_destruction

      • wow, my arse, he spent the last 18 years working there, so yes he might know how all this works and how security is set, I wanted to know, could care less if you do. Keep on quaterbacking…….

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Richard, misinterpreted your intent so please disregard everything except the part about putting a shirt on. You look like a glowing WMD on a motorcycle.

    The following is a transcript of President Obama’s remarks on Sept. 12, 2012, following attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
    OBAMA: Good morning.
    Every day all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.
    Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed.
    And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.
    The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We’re working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I’ve also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.
    Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
    But there is absolutely no justification for this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. Already many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’ body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had tied.
    It’s especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage and resolve he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya.
    When the Qaddafi regime came to an end Chris was there to serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy. And I think both Secretary Clinton and I have relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there.
    He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.
    Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. As (ph) today the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on.
    I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who loved them back home. Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourn with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.
    As Americans let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those, both civilian and military, who represent us around the globe.
    No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.
    Today we mourn for more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.
    But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.
    We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory and let us continue their work in seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.
    Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost, and may God bless the United States of America.

    • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

      First attack on the WTC was Friday, February 26, 1993 just a little over a month into President Clintons presidency. These dirt bags seem to think that testing a new presidents will is the way to go. After the attack the Clinton administration did a pretty good job of thwarting future attacks. President Bush was also tested and the Bush administration did a pretty good job of halting more attacks on US soil. That can not be said of the Obama administration.

    Hey Dan,

    Yemeni protesters storm U.S. embassy in Sanaa

    (Reuters) – Hundreds of Yemeni demonstrators stormed the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Thursday in protest at a film they consider blasphemous to Islam, and security guards tried to hold them off by firing into the air, witnesses said.

    Young protesters, shouting “we sacrifice ourselves for you, Messenger of God”, smashed windows of the security offices outside the embassy with stones and burned at least five cars as they broke through the main gate of the heavily fortified compound in eastern Sanaa, the witnesses said.

    “We can see a fire inside the compound and security forces are firing in the air. The demonstrators are fleeing and then charging back,” one witness told Reuters.

    A security source said at least 15 people were wounded, some from bullets and 12 people were arrested.

    Protests against an American-made anti-Islam film have spread across the Middle East and North Africa.

    The trouble started in Egypt on Tuesday when a group of protesters attacked a US building.

    They were angry at the film which they say is insulting to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad.

    Since then protests have spread to other mainly Muslim countries including Yemen, Morocco, Sudan, Iraq, Iran and Tunisia.

    Violent protests across Middle East target embassies, Pope visit to Lebanon

    Anti-American protests erupted across the Middle East on Friday, following week-long demonstrations outside of several U.S. embassies and a Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that left the U.S. ambassador and three others dead.
    Protesters reportedly broke into the German Embassy in Sudan — pulling down its emblem and raising the Islamic flag — and demonstrators in Lebanon set a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on fire while chanting against the pope’s visit to Lebanon.
    At least one protester was killed and 25 were injured in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli after clashes between police and protesters over an anti-Islam film, security officials said.

      Ground control to major Tom
      Ground control to major Tom
      Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
      (Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
      (Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
      (Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you

      This is ground control to major Tom, you’ve really made the grade
      And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
      Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

      This is major Tom to ground control, I’m stepping through the door
      And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
      And the stars look very different today
      Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world
      Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do

      Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles, I’m feeling very still
      And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
      Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
      Ground control to major Tom, your circuits dead, there’s something wrong
      Can you hear me, major Tom?
      Can you hear me, major Tom?
      Can you hear me, major Tom?
      Can you…
      Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon
      Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do

        And did they get you to trade
        Your heroes for ghosts?
        Hot ashes for trees?
        Hot air for a cool breeze?
        Cold comfort for change?
        And did you exchange
        A walk on part in the war
        For a lead role in a cage?

          Why did you skip clinton?
          The media were predictably orgasmic over a new Obama campaign ad out Friday featuring former President Bill Clinton in a strong message implying Mitt Romney wouldn’t have made the decision last year to kill Osama bin Laden.

          The problem with their glee is that Clinton himself passed up numerous opportunities to kill or capture bin Laden prior to leaving the White House in January 2001 thereby making this entire ad totally hypocritical as is the press’s joy for it

            I haven’t seen the ad. Why do I need a link to tell me what it says?
            I have no doubt Romney would have given the order. Bush would have as well if he had directed operations to actually search for him. If Romney would have shifted focus??? He never said during his last campaign. I doubt it. The party was focused on Iran and Iraq.
