Benghazi should be the story of this election

But the media is engaged otherwise:

Or:

Remember how the media treated Cindy Sheehan (until she was no longer useful?)?

Contrast that with how they’re treating Ty Wood’s dad, Charles.

Kind of makes the point, doesn’t it?

  • Drip, drip, drip…

    The Mushroom Media…along with the Obami…are going down over this multi-layered scandal.  (One layer…at least…of which belongs completely to the media).

  • I’m so disgusted with all of them, I can’t even express it properly.

    • We need to remind people the situation room at the White House isn’t a 9:5 job where they all take a break for lunch at !2:00 and hang a “gone to lunch, be back in an hour” sign on the door.
       
      People aren’t thinking of the scope of the operation that supports the Presidency.   There’s no escape from what he knew, or should have known, and when.
      That information didn’t sit unnoticed in the White House in basket for a couple hours, and it didn’t arrive by pigeon, semaphore or hard riding pony express courier.

  • I KNOW you’d love to make this about Benghazi, which President Obama has already explained and you’d love to politicize this tragedy at a time of mourning for political gain…but there are a few things we really need to consider about Mitt Romney before election day….
     
    He didn’t show us his tax returns from 1940, and he refuses to give us returns that we really can’t demand by law.
    He’s a rich guy, right?
    He wants to put women and blacks back in chains.
    And…he’s rich, did I say that?
    Did you know Europe wants Obama to be President?
    Romney will bring back the Spanish Inquisition!
    He’ll turn the whole country into a Christian theocracy!
    He’ll take away Instagram as soon as he becomes President!
    There won’t be any help for poor people!  He wants them all to die!
    He wants to give all our money to the rich!
    He’ll start a war!
    He wants to ‘outsource’ all our jobs to China (the correct term is off shore, but let’s not quibble as that would demonstrate we can’t really grasp the difference in the concepts….)
    He’s rich you know.
    He and Ann took a shower together once.
    He thinks 47% of the country isn’t worth saving!
    He hates cats!
    He’ll allow environmental polluters to spray coal tar all over everything (we’re not sure WHY he’ll allow this, but trust us, he will).
    And cut down all the trees
    and pollute all the streams, rivers and oceans
    and drill for oil in your backyard
    He tied his dog to the roof of his car you know.
    He made money in business, too much money, no doubt illegally, by sending all our jobs to China.
    He’ll close down all the colleges for poor people.
    He has investments in companies that make a profit by selling things!
    He doesn’t want women to have sex, ever… and if they do, he doesn’t want them to like it
    I’m not sure if I said, but he’s rich you know
    He wants to lower tax rates on his rich friends and raise them on the middle class
    then he wants to destroy the middle class
    He wants to kill old people, and the ones he doesn’t kill, he wants to die of starvation or cold
    He’ll shut off the internet
    He’ll declare the Red Sox winners of the World Series every year.
    We’ll riot if Obama loses because we know it will be a stolen election.
     

    • You left out the Polar Bears.  Don’t you love the children?

    • Coal tar, he’s going to spray them with coal tar! and Paul Ryan is going to hold them down while he does it, and then Sarah Palin will shoot them!

    • Add binders, bayonets and Big Bird and the list is complete!

    • @Looker: Ummm, I hope you don’t mind that I’m going to “steal” this and put it on every conservative site I use, which is probably close to 100/ 150…I’d love to have had time to actually ask your permission, but I do not! I will, however, accredit creation to you, ‘Looker @ http://www.qando.net/?p=14209‘ if that makes anyone feel any better!

      5 more days to go….then he can’t hide behind the WH anymore!
      It is my humble opinion, that barack hussien obama ought to be indicted and tried for treason/ sedition/ cCvi and Constitutional rights violations, on top of being an absolute asshole!
      What happened in Benghazi cannot be allowed to just disappear…

    • And his wifes loves horses; PETA has a real problem with that!

    • … and those ten years without paying taxes … No doubt they were before Mitt turned 11 years old

  • Consider – while the scope isn’t even in the same universe…they sure as shit didn’t cut Bush any slack the day some screaming Islamic asshats flew planes into the WTC and Pentagon, even though he was on the road when it happened.
     

    • Sheryl Adkisson at CBS comes through again. She’s one of the few not blissfully snoozing until after the election.

      CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG).

      Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack.

      Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.

      The Administration also didn’t call on the only interagency, on-call, short notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents worldwide: the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST). FEST’s seasoned experts leave within four hours of notification and can provide “the fastest assistance possible.”

      Counterterrorism officials from two agencies said they concluded almost immediately that the attack was by terrorists and was not spontaneous. “I came to this conclusion as soon as I heard the mortar rounds were impacting on top of the building our people were occupying,” says one.

      A White House official says President Obama immediately acknowledged the assault was a terrorist attack. However, there was confusion as White House spokesman Jay Carney said three days later, “We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack.”

      I am speechless how we are just hearing about this six weeks plus after the fact. But kudos to the unnamed sources that are not content to let Obama hide until Nov 6.

      • Ms. Adkisson was one of the very few in the Mushroom Media on F&F, too, if I recall.
        Makes you wonder about what she has been told to sit on by her network, dunnit?

  • The unfortunate message is that a compliant media will endanger national security to enhance the reputation of this administration; but not post facto worry about finding how it was lost and why Americans were killed — if it might question the administration’s judgment. Of all the things written about the four Obama years, one of the most telling will be how an entire industry forfeited its integrity for political purposes and lost its reputation.

    Disgusting Collectivist behavior.

    • That’s okay, look at the people who they think are fit to deliver news to us.
      They no longer even bother to use the objective pretense Walter “Krankheit” hid behind all those years.
       
      This last 20 years has been an eye opener.  This isn’t a recent change.  They’ve been doing it all along.  They were just foolish enough to think they could do away with their masks because they thought the country had become more like them than not and that we ‘bitter clingers’ living with our archaic outdated 20th century conservative philosophies were a dead end breed destined for Erb’s ash heap of history.
       
      Deity willing come Tuesday they’re about to discover how wrong they are.
       
       

      • IF Romney wins, I expect a LOT of things to change, but the full-tilt propaganda of the Mushroom Media is not one.  They are out, they show no sign of learning, and they are committed Collectivists.
        I think this is a dangerous time for the nation, as a consequence, and I am unable to see a short-term solution.  Long-term, their business model is suicidal in all but the centers of the hive-mind.  Until they die off, somehow they have to be marginalized.
