How the administration
got in trouble on Libya

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/21/2012 10:27:40 PM

I suspect, although we will know for sure tomorrow night, that President Obama will claim organizational incompetence in connection with acknowledging that the Libya jihadist operation was, well, a planned jihadist operation. The Associated Press reports how quickly confirmation came that this was not a spontaneous mob action. The AP tells us that within 24 hours of the attack “the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that the attack was carried out by militants.” However, the report continues, “It is unclear

Obama needed to spin a political fable and he did.
Obama has been spinning, lying and re-spinning for 5 weeks.

Let's see, all the organizational incompetence was at obie's choosing, he lied to cover his sorry rear and will try once again to blame others for his incompetence and outright Treason!

Obama will reference "the fog of war" early and often.

Just using the phrase paints him as a warrior, and how can any outsiders (critics of his duplicity) possibly have insight the combatants (see?) themselves don't have?

Romney is smart and adept; I'm not overly worried. But Obama is a snake, his team are vipers, and always dangerous.

The fog of war did not exist in the benghazi incident. A drone was giving live feeds back to washington, as were the survellience cameras at the consulate building. Charlene Lamb testified that she watched the incident in real time.

I find it impossible to believe that hillary would not have been notified, the president would not have been notified, clapper would not have been notified.

The only thing that mr hussein obama can say tonight is that the whole episode was boneheaded. But it proves that a man of no achievement cannot set up and run the government. He is lousy at it.
But he is cool and likeable.
Give me a break.

Scheiffer will insist that Benghazi is old news and it's time to move on.

He will also make crow-ley appear fair and balanced.

Obama will continue to obfuscate and lie about Benghazi and Schieffer will either say it's time to move on or he'll provide the same kind of twisted cover for Obama that Crowley did.
Of this we can be assured.
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

Jennifer kind of glosses over the real reason for the ineptness of this regime.
It is the fact that he has surounded himself with cronies and syncophants with no regard for competence.
Witness the criminal Eric Holder, Prof. Steven Chu, Failed gov Salazar, the obese Surgeon General, Joe, Cheshire Cat Biden, Big Sis, Czar Jackson etc,etc.

I think that the congress can get to the bottom the entire Benghazi fiasco by having one person testify under oath: General Petraeus. Where has the General been for the past month? Why doesn't Obama have the General explain all the intelligence events that comprise the Benghazi ordeal?

I believe that the time has come for 3-4 Lawmakers,{maybe Lieberman,D, Webb,D,Inhofe,R and Graham,R} make the long walk to the Oval Office to advise the CIC that "he shall make no Exec.Order,expend no un-allocated funds,or submit no names to the Senate for confirmation,until He and VP Biden submit detailed information to the House and Senate.

The House will begin formal hearings before NOV.6th if he does not conform.

“The fog of war” excuse won’t work. The fog of war refers to an inability to know what is happening in the field in real time. Obama knew in real time of the events on the ground. He had military assets close at hand. He did nothing.

Romney’s question tonight is, “Mr. President, the Benghazi attack lasted seven hours. You saw the video in real time. Fast response teams were available. You didn’t activate them. Why?”

Denial, Deception, or Incompetence, or combinations of some or all of the above. But Ms. Rubin's close says it all:

"Whatever the explanation for the fiasco, it is hard to muster any confidence that this president has the judgment, will or skills to be a successful commander in chief. He hasn’t been one so far."

America elected a man to the presidency who had never accompllished anything. He never built anything. He never managed anything. He never stood for anything. And don't point to his family. My dog can reproduce. The only think Mr. Obama has to show for the air he has breathed for the last 51 years is getting himself elected to increasingly more important public offices. But even then he never did the work associated with any of them. The young manager of the local Dairy Queen has a record of responsibility, accomplishment, and success more predictive of success in the presidency than that offered by Mr. Obama in 2008.

And so, now that the Obama presidency has all turned to dirt, how can it possibly have come as a surprise to anyone? And what about these last four years predict anything other than continued, unrelenting failure?

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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.

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

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

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
