    What we are hearing is that our Ambassador to Libya asked for help when the attack started and help was denied. It is in his diary that was recovered after his death.

    Don't you think Americans are entitled to know why? Problem is Obama doesn't have an answer he is willing to give.

    If Obama really was referring to this incident as a terrorist attack then why not come out and say it like a man. Say "this attack was an act of terrorism." After which he should have NOT played those games he did with the video and apologize for it. Yes the video was stupid but it was irrelevant and he knew it all along. Obama responded like a weakling and an apologist. the Same way he has dealt with foreign policy all along. Weak. Not my president.

    Why wasn't our Ambassador provided with the security that he asked for as noted in his diary? And no, unlike what Obama tried to feed us the attack had nothing to do with an anti-Muslim video.

    so all three comments he made all calling it an act of terror that first 48 hours about the attack where all just general statements about terror and not in reference to the actual attack and he is a liar? interesting.

    You claim others have an irrational love for the president please tell us some things you think he did right. Without the childish sarcasm if possible.

    But But But:

    Since Obama used the generic term "acts of terror" in the context of general violence in his news conference after the attack - before he sent his minions out onto Sunday Talk shows to spread the meme that it was NOT an act of terror but an angry mob unhappy over a video - then he technically cannot be called a liar (right?)

    Since Obama did not publicly acknowledge that the murders were actually done by "terrorists" aka Al Qaeda, for two more weeks - even though he was warned and he knew; he cannot really be accountable (right?).

    No: Poor Obama is obviously an innocent victim of partisan attempts to blame him. Because it couldn't possibly be true that people can see through all that carefully crafted confusion and witness that the entire Libya debacle is exemplary of Obama obfuscation and incompetence

    Nothing bad is ever Obama's fault (and if it is suggested that Obama is actually a bad president - it is merely because the one suggesting it is obviously a uniformed right-winger) -sarcasm-
