Ryan & Romney are a disgrace to American Politics and their attacks on
President Obama are childish attempts to gain votes from people more ignorant of
foreign affairs than themselves.Obama got Bin Laden, and kept his
eye on the target, while the last admin and it's fan club ryan & mit
would have let him go again, like bush did. Starting wars is NOT
Diplomacy mit....and since none of your good sons have enlisted it will be
up to middle class to sacrifice their children for your arrogance.
nothing like spotting overly simplistic platitudes during a time of
international crisis to show your foreign affairs chops for short term political
gain. Just more proof that these two are not ready for the reality of the job
they are running for.
It is interesting to me that those who support President Obama act like he
isn't responsible for anything. Many of the comments on similar stories to
this even act like Mitt Romney is the president and shouldn't be making his
remarks. Get real. The foreign policy "gaffe" as stated in some
articles is the President's not one of his political challengers. And as
for politicizing this event, it was a political event that cost the lives of
Step one: load footgunStep two: shoot self in footStep three: keep
shooting until you have no leg to stand on.Good luck to the GOP
using that campaign strategy.
Lets use the current candidate logic here , and play it back agains another
event.In April of 1983, the US embassy in Lebanon was attacked, and
bombed killing 63, of which 17 were Americans. The President at the time was
the patron saint of Republicanism, Ronald Reagan. In October 1983
the US Marine base had a like attack on it, killing 241 Marines and 57 French
Paratroopers.Romney and Ryan claim the Obama foreign policy is a
failure for letting these attacks happen this week. If that is the case and
precedent, are Romney and Ryan equally willing to call the Reagan foreign policy
that resulted in 100 times more deaths at US facilities as failure as well?
388 Lives lost at US embassy's under Reagan versus 4 under Obama.I hate that any of these events is being politicized. But surely hate more
the distortions being laid out. No more so than attacks from McCain, because I
am old enough to remember images from Hanoi of the Americans being Helicoptered
out of the then falling US Embassy - a tragedy brought on by the politicization
of yet another conflict. Shame on anyone who doesn't remember
the cost paid.
@JMHO "it was a political event that cost the lives of four
people." how so?
@ TolstoyTpday's terrorism is based on political (in this case
religious fanatacism mixed with politics) issues. Current-day terrorists
don't want religious freedoms, they want to set up a church state where
their sharia law rules. It would follow then that these acts of terror are
closely linked to politics.
Obama failed - so according to unbiased press (many of whom worked for Democrat
campaigns - Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulos) - Romney must have made a gaffe
@JMHOSo the politics of the terrorist factor into your blaming obama
for their acts how? @CI nice try, but the reason people
are saying romney made a gaffe is because he rushed out and made uniformed
comments about a situation he clearly does not understand, I do find it
interesting that Romney is already trying to blame Obama for his own failures, I
can hardly wait for the next four years if he actually manage to win.
Seems that the Demo's are trying to target a obnoxious film for all these
problems, but as more information is disclosed, and I'm sure that we
will never hear the best of it, we were warnedthat there would be
disturbances on 9/11. Where were the reinforcements that should have been sent
to protect our people. Apparently the one's that had been request for
Libya had been held up in the State Department.After the DNC where it was
very public and overly (at least 20+ times) reveled that Obama had killed bin
Laden, and Hillary had laughed openly on TV concerning his taking out. What
would you expect the Muslin community might think or feel, and when best to
express it, after all there was a great celebration when the towers came down.
It was bin Laden they were praising as they attacked our Embassies.Obama
is the great 'leader from behind". I'm sure the relatives of the
4 dead in Libya appreciate this kind of leadership, and unfortunately that is
what we can expect in the future.
