    “Until Obama gives the order to reveal his “secret” college grades and transcripts, we’ll never find out, will we???”
    ________________________________

    Why are ‘we’ so desperate to know in the first place? If I can’t know for sure whether Obama was unqualified, or just barely edged out similar white candidates because of race, why should my default assumption be that he was unqualified? Why would I even wonder? Why should I have any assumption about it at all? How can a group of people be so tone deaf that they don’t realize the implicit signal this whole “just asking questions! Just thinking aloud! We just wanna see the transcripts, we just wanna see the long-form birth certificate, what’s the big deal?” line of attack sends.

    How can a group not realize the implications, when taken as a whole with all of the other BS that’s traded in the bubble: Obama got into Columbia because of AA, then he got into Harvard because of AA, he was on the law review because of AA, he graduated with Honors because people wanted to give a black man high grades, he was hired by Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland because of AA, his books were ghost written, he beat Hillary because of white guilt in the media, he beat McCain because America wanted to ‘vote for a black guy.’ To hear the conservative narrative, Barack Obama is a guy who owes absolutely every positive thing that’s happened in his life to guilty white people. No dog whistles there though, hahahaha

    “If the Bengazi story would have been with Bush in office and lets say the media let it get to this point.
    What would the media be doing right now with 2 weeks left in a tight race???? Do you think that EVERYONE would be surrounding him for answers??? Do you think he would have a snowballs chance in hell of holding a campaign event without have 90% of the US media on him like a hobo on a ham sandwich??”
    _________________________

    Hmm, I dunno. Bush seemed to do just fine, despite

    -Failing to act on intelligence that implicated the following:
    bin Laden was a serious, imminent threat, a very complex long-term planner
    determined to attack in New York or LA
    planned on hijacking an airplane
    (and this all stuff that we know from what little has been made public of the intelligence at that time)

    -Ignoring intelligence that showed the report of yellow cake transactions in Niger were bogus

    -The man who had been intimately involved with U.S. counter-terrorism since Reagan saying that Bush’s obsession with Iraq (from the moment he came into office) was the source of several major national security failures, leading to a sum loss of over 10,000 Americans

    This country would be a radically different place right now, had McCain beaten out Bush in the primaries in 2000. Then, either way, you’d end up with a president who might actually listen to what the existing intelligence establishment was telling them, instead of allowing Cheney and Rumsfield to run the show.

    REPORT: VA congressman’s son caught on undercover video discussing voter fraud…Democrat

    Here’s part of the transcript below:

    Undercover Reporter: There are 100 people who don’t vote. He’s looking for two guys to help him with. …

    Patrick Moran: Crank it out?

    Undercover Reporter: Yes. He’s got a van and he and me were going to go around. …

    Patrick Moran: Rally these people up and get them to the polls.

    Undercover Reporter: Well, he was actually going to get in a van and vote for them.

    Patrick Moran: Ohhhh

    Undercover Reporter: I know, but –

    Undercover Reporter: It’s scary, but I’m not. … I don’t want to lose, and I’m frightened.

    Patrick Moran: Yeah.

    Then later in the video there’s talk about creating fake utility bills to serve as voter identification.

    Patrick Moran: So, if they just have the utility bill or bank statement – bank statement would obviously be tough … but faking a utility bill would be easy enough.

    Undercover Reporter: How would you do that?

    Patrick Moran: I mean, I would just find, I don’t know, I guess. …

    Undercover Reporter: Microsoft Word and type it up.

    Patrick Moran: Yeah, something like that.

    @Matthew: >>> Why are ‘we’ so desperate to know in the first place? <<<

    Because it's yet another example of his failed so-called 'transparent" presidency. Four years ago, why did the Dems felt the need to spend high-six-figures on lawyers and investigators to vet Sarah Palin? And, in the end, everything turned out to be BS and she wasn't guilty of anything. The media gave Obama a complete pass who didn't have Palin's leadership experience. Biden was one of the good ol' boys. "Hell, they figured, if Joe's been on the Hill since the 1970s, he must check out." No one questioned John McCain's background, the Dems and the media tried to convince everyone that McCain was GWB.

    “There are only two explanations for this entire sordid affair in Benghazi. One is gross, unbelievable, incalculable incompetence. The other is sheer, bald-faced lying. Those are the only two explanations for what happened and what didn’t: Gross, corrupt incompetence or abject lying.” -Rush Limbaugh

  • lbsles

    “What we’re watching as the media ignores Benghazi is the equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein helping Nixon cover up Watergate. That is what is happening today with this story. The mainstream media is Woodward and Bernstein, Watergate is Benghazi, and this time Woodward and Bernstein are helping Nixon cover it up.” -Rush Limbaugh

    The difference is Bush would not have been allowed to hide. The issues did come in Bushes term but Bush and Cheney were asked about and answered the questions. You may not like their answers or think they were lying but they were asked and answered the questions. Cheney was on Meet the Press many times. Where is Biden?

    The corrupt lib. media is focused today on some idiot running for Senate from Indiana because Obama needs more support from women. Is the Indiana guy a story, sure but Libya is a story also and a big one.

    “The Republican Party wants ‘moderation,’ ‘walking across the aisle,’ and ‘working together,’ to be the reason the party wins elections. That’s what they want everybody to understand. You know it and I know it. There’s not a whole lot of love for conservatives in the Republican Party. Except now, when they’ll take anything to win.” -Rush Limbaugh

    Guilford County, NC Voters Say Ballot Cast for Romney Came Up Obama on Machine

    GREENSBORO, N.C. –The presidential election is just around the corner and voting issues have already become a problem in Guilford County.

    On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote. All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.

    One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote the machine defaulted to President Obama.

    @Matthew: >>>What would the media be doing right now with 2 weeks left in a tight race???? <<<

    That eventually cost Dan Rather his job at CBS. He planned that "60 Minutes II" piece on Bush's "cushy" military experience just before the 2004 election. With no corraborating evidence to support a 'photo copy' that was supposed to be Bush's final nail, CBS wisely threw a number of producers and others under the bus while Dan got to stay longer.

    Obama challenges press to find flip-flops — and they do…

    Obama Says To Look At “Videotape” For His Flip-Flops

    The President hit Mitt Romney for flip-flopping today on the campaign trail in Iowa saying you can look at videotape of his past positions and not see flip-flops. The President, however, has engaged in his own of political gymnastics as well.

    “Four years ago, why did the Dems felt the need to spend high-six-figures on lawyers and investigators to vet Sarah Palin?”
    ________________________

    Because politics is an ugly business. Sarah Palin (and, more importantly, her family) didn’t deserve to be dragged through the mud, but that doesn’t mean the correct response is to drag someone else through the mud and call it ‘balanced.’ In Palin’s case, they didn’t need to dig up any dirt on her, she was more than capable of burying herself with her own words.

    Whether or not he got into college based on AA is only ‘vetting’ in the sense that it’s a thing that a segment of the population would judge negatively, that doesn’t mean it’s something actually worth knowing.

    White House: Those E-mails That Show We Knew the Benghazi Attack was a Terrorist Act Doesn’t Prove We Lied…Time and Time Again

    The spinning continues.

    The White House has flip-flopped so many time on the Benghazi attack. First they blamed a YouTube video. Then they claimed it was a spontaneous attack by a mob of angry Muslims who were upset about…..a YouTube video. Then we learn that the White House knew within a few hours that it was a terrorist attack on top of finding out a US Predator drone was dispatched to watch the attack unfold. The spin and cover-up continue.

    The White House wants everyone to believe all these e-mails that contradict their story shouldn’t be believed.

    The White House this morning attempted to down-play the significance of emails sent to top national security officials during the attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, one of which suggested a known terrorist group claimed credit for the attack in its immediate aftermath.

    As obtained by ABC News’ John Parkinson and posted last night, the emails seem to be ones sent by the State Department Operations Center to distribution lists and email accounts for the top national security officials at the State Department, Pentagon, the FBI, the White House Situation Room and the office of the Director of National Intelligence.

    Not to mention that Matthew skirted the entire question and turned it on Bush just like Obama!!! I guess he doesnt want to give an opinion on how the media just might handle the situation a little different and maybe……..uh………..try to sway the election a little by capitolizing on it for the left!

    Memo To Michelle: What A ‘Huge Recovery’ Looks Like

    Economy: Michelle Obama recently described this recovery as “huge.” Maybe she forgot what decade it is. The Reagan recovery in the ’80s was huge. But the one her husband’s policies have given us? Not so much.

    A Washington, D.C., hip-hop station host asked Michelle to “in your words, tell us what you think the state of the union is in right now?”

    Her answer: “I mean, we are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery. Right? Because of what this president has done.”

    We wholeheartedly agree with the first lady that the current state of the economy is the result of “what this president has done.”

    “The difference is Bush would not have been allowed to hide. The issues did come in Bushes term but Bush and Cheney were asked about and answered the questions. ”
    ______________________

    Cheney and Bush asserted executive privilege throughout the 9-11 Commission investigation, that is the very definition of ‘not answering questions,’ or engaging in cover-up.

    And I want you know, this isn’t meant to be some two wrongs make a right argument. One bad act never justifies another, I’m just making it as a historical point: had you listened exclusively to the Democratic bubble in 2004, you’d think that Bush was surely bound to lose because of 9/11 and Iraq, and within a month he’d be on trial for war crimes. Obviously, that’s not what happened, because in a country with 300+ million people, not everyone is going to share your voting priorities, or come to the same conclusions about a failure that you do.
