    Fox Nation vs. Reality: Al Gore Going Up The River?



  • Ratboy

    Good Morning All!!
    I couldnt take sourcing anymore of Jeffies posts, I was laughing so hard I was crying and the tears were dripping on my keyboard! :lol:

  • usnretiredx2


    1)Obama knowingly that the attack would happen , intentionally denied aid to the consulate.
    2)Obama knowingly that the attack was committed by a terrorist group, intentionally hid the fact.
    If you don’t have ACTUAL evidence then the rest is just speculation and witch hunt. It sound just as bad a Jones and Ventura’s conspiracy theories about 9/11

    1) Why were we in Condition Normal during the week of 9/11. Since 9/11/01 the US has always increased this level in areas of any possible concern. The sand box area always has been increased.

    2) Let’s just say he did not know who did it. So a week goes by and we talk about a video. What proof did he have it was a Video?

    3) Now the overall question is Since Obama is in charge of the greatest nation on earth and has the very best comms in the world why did he not know in real time what was going on.

    I know you will be watching the movie The Killing of OBL. When you do think about that as you watch the real time feed.

    Last but not least. In 1987 I worked with UAV now known as Drones. The video gear on these back in those days were 3 mill each. During the day we could count nails in house siding, at night we could see the footstep in sand 30 feet behind the person we were tracking. That was 25 years ago.

    Bubbas you need to get out of the closet, there is a big world out there and what you see on Sitcoms and Reality TV is not the world…

    I know I will most likely not get a response because you do not seem to be able to read any prior posts and just jump on and start blasting away.

    @ Jeff

    -Discussing Sandy’s Effect On Election, Tucker Carlson Blames Obama For Not “Lowering The Level Of The Ocean”


    Jeff, Tucker was only quoting Bill Clinton from yesterday.

    If your calling what Christie said to Fox & Friends a “smackdown”
    your really stretching it.

    Christie is an example of the right, he will give credit where credit is due and criticize when it is deserved.

    You would never see that from the left. I swear Obama could murder his family and the left would swear his family drove him to do it, or that the right wing crazies (teaparty) were responsible.

    I am at the point now that watching the meltdown in progress is amusing but if Romney wins I am afraid it could get violent.

    Jeff , don’t get all nuts on me that I stated what I think. We have made some progress. :mrgreen:

    Good morning everyone else.

    The Fox News Confessional: Dinesh D’Souza Begs Forgiveness


    Does any of this change the facts ?

  • Ratboy

    Sunny Baby! Darlin!

    How is the weather by you? are you safe and sound??

  • usnretiredx2


    I am going to have to agree with sunshine on that one.

    Debunk the Movie not the man. The left cannot throw any stones on people having extra-marital affairs.

    PS go to the article you referenced, click on the author’s name (Mark) and look at his prior and present posts. He is left of left of left. Come on bubba.

  • sunshine


    Yes safe and sound, just cold, wet and windy. I am surrounded by Lake St Clair, the Detroit River & Lake Erie .
    Are you affected by Lake Michigan?

  • usnretiredx2

    For all you Climate Change Bubbas……..

    Here is a blast for the past


  • sunshine

    Later all!

  • Sicilian Papa



    Real quick! This got buried in the early morning flurry. The CBS/NY Times/Q polls are weighted +8 for Dems. Basically phony polls. I know Matthew won’t like that but what are you going to do. Fla./Ohio/Vir. +8 Dems?

    Don’t they know we check the internals. They put the party ID all the way down at the bottom.

    The corrupt partisan media can find Romney to shout a dozen questions at him about the future of a government agency FEMA. They can’t find Susan Rice to ask her about who sent her on the Sunday shows 5 days after the Libya attacks and blaming the video. Corrupt


    Coffee Steve

    I saw Meet the Press and there was no way Gregory was going to let the subject of Libya be talked about on NBC. Scandalous behavior as well as corrupt.

  • Sicilian Papa



    I read Jeff’s posts and I was going to respond. It would have taken an hour. You seemed to sum it up pretty nicely.

  • Sicilian Papa

    They rig his polling for him, they cover up his scandals, they give him softball interviews, they campaign on the nightly news for him.

    Is there anything the corrupt partisan media won’t do for their Messiah, President Obama.

  • Moncon

    I watched Meet The Press and waited for the Libya topic and all I saw was more war on women cr@p. the President needs to address where the investigation is at with the American people. Just like the lefties want Romney to come clean on every tax return from his first job to now, we want the President to be straight with us on what really happened with no spin.

  • Ratboy

    Well I guess we just have to wait and see. Note he said MAJOR NETWORKS, dont think the media is sittin on sumptin to protect the prez do you?

    Gingrich: Senator told me networks may have White House emails commanding counterterrorism group to stand down on Benghazi rescue

    On Tuesday night’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that major news networks might have secret emails proving that the White House canceled plans to assist the besieged U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

    Gingrich said that the bombshell emails could be revealed within the next two days.

    “There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich said. “But they were a group in real-time trying to mobilize marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action. If that is true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that is true and comes out, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, and Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta

  • usnretiredx2



    We will see if true as time goes by….

  • Raz

    If that is true and the major networks have this inforamtion…..will be interesting to see what they will do. Will the biggest story of the year (next to Hurricane Sandy) be sat on or will it come out a week before the election?
