Not from the Onion

“Brownie” is criticizing Obama for responding too quickly!

And it gets better!

“One thing he’s gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [the hurricane] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in…Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas?” Brown says. “Why was this so quick?… At some point, somebody’s going to ask that question…. This is like the inverse of Benghazi.”

Seriously, you can’t write better satire!

    Amazing that he wouldn’t be in hiding right now, but apparently his current employment is connected to private security, disaster recovery and criticizing FEMA, so whining about the president being too quick to limit damage makes sense.

    Do you think he got this position because he worked so hard on their behalf to make FEMA a failure?

    Here’s another interesting one from that site, Mitch, where the intelligent-if-nothing-else Condi Rice speaks truth as anyone who ever had to do with things would know it, about Benghazi information and response.

    Also while it lasts a telling small picture of the Mitt, whose title might be ‘Weakness’. The most dangerous yet politically potent kind — another dog whistle.

    It’s straightforward, Eric.

    President Obama should single-handedly solve all the nation’s problems while completely surrendering to those who want the problems to continue, and he should not allow himself to be visible to receive any credit, because credit belongs only to his opponents.

    What’s hard to understand about that?

On the other hand he did make a major fuckup of Libya. And the lies after the fact make it all even worse. I am sure Romney will do much better as President.

    Ponder,
    What about Fallujah? What about the 241 marines killed on Regan’s watch in Beirut? Are you gonna man up to those those Republican failures? Your man Romney is cut from the same cloth. Just a few months ago he was ready to invade Syria and Iran. Then he put his finger in the wind and decided to mimic Obama’s policies. As far as I can tell Romney has no soul – he just does whatever keeps him in practice for another day, and it doesn’t really matter if it’s selling the nation to China, getting soldiers killed, or pretending he favor’s Obama’s foriegn policy (like he did at the last debate).

  14. Ponder z

    Boy Anoy, you sure are right about Romney. But we are talking about BO now, as ELpresidenta, he failed and then covered it up. That didn’t happen in Fallujah or Beirut. Both involved in ongoing conflict at the time. Benghazi was kind of quiet at the time. Well, except for those movie protesters!

    He just didn’t care, he wasn’t interested, the attack on the Benghazi Consulate did not fit the obummer narrative that relations with the muslim countries was fine. Then he sent his dog washers out to lie about the video. No press conference, no tough direct questions. Stonewalling, cover up, you bet, with the complicit help of the liberal media. In his mind Ambassador Chris Stevens is collateral damage to obummers quest to fundamentally transform America.

  20. Eric Kirk
    October 31, 2012 at 11:16 am

    So he’s covering up that…. he didn’t care? How did the attack contradict the narrative that relations with Muslim countries was “fine?” How does that even make sense? It wasn’t a nation that conducted the attack. It was terrorists. Right? Isn’t that what he was supposedly denying when he used the word to describe it?

    Even Fox seems to have given up on this narrative, probably because the Romney campaign did after the disaster in the second debate. Usually the right wing noise machine attacks at least make sense. This one is completely incoherent, which is why it took no traction with independent voters. It might make some odd sense in the weird world of the right wing, but it completely escapes the rest of us.

    The Reps demand that all the facts be available at least an hour BEFORE the event! There were many aspects to the attack, including terrorists and a mob inspired by the insulting video. Do you suppose the terrorists USED the video to incite violence? There remain many questions about what happened because there are many conflicting reports. Some things take time to sort out. But it MUST be some nefarious plot to ‘cover up’ the details, mustn’t it? They’re under every rock and they’re coming to get us. Be afraid, be very afraid. We can control you better that way. Or so says Romney and his Bush retread cronies.
    I’m afraid, all right…afraid that a far right tea party regime like Romney’s might actually steal our country.

  24. HUUFC

    Why yes, the video was used, by the obummer administration. And the Benghazi story is alive and well on Fox News. At least somebody is covering it, after all four Americans died. But for some reason it is not being covered right now, sombody named Sandy is in the news.

  25. October 31, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    “I’m afraid, all right…afraid that a far right tea party regime like Romney’s might actually steal our country.” You’re just a tad late when it comes to that little chore. They weren’t called “far right tea party regime” then, but they still got the job done. It won’t be long before they have believing that the earth is flat again too.

Either big o gave the orders or was too busy planning his inauguration to bother. you choose, either way, he sucks.

    “all over European press” – because you say so. So is the story about the Earth being flat and the fake moon landing. We’re to believe it is a coverup of the administrations secret plot to kill their own ambassador?
    I wish you guys would put as much effort into documenting Romney’s dual position on every major issue: abortion, health care, gay marriage, federal aid, policy on Iran, Syria, Afgahanastan, tax cuts… Now there’s a real conspiracy to deceive.

    clearly, y’all have made up your minds to vote for the “lesser” of the two evils. Of course this lesser evil wrote the executive order that classifies all military aged persons killed by drones as enemy combatants. He also runs the military in the model first espoused by Donald Rumsfeld, less conventional forces, more special ops. The same strategy that got many of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan killed needlessly.

    “haha, again, no concise rebuttal”

    How can anyone rebut conspiracy nonsense? That’s the beauty of conspiracy talk – any logical argument would just be challenged as part of the conspiracy. I believe the moon landing never happened – any evidence to the contrary is coverup. I believe 911 was all orchestrated by the CIA – any evidence to the contrary is coverup. Clinton had a number of people killed – any evidence to the contrary is a coverup.

    Unless the situation involves a very small number of people, eventually someone talks – so if something really did happen in this situation, it will come out because it would need to involve a lot of people. Real examples: Watergate, Iran-contra.

    it is coming out, this information comes from CIA and State Dept. sources, leaked communications, congressional testimony, but of course, just bury your head in the sand, redirect the argument, nothing happened. Renditions were a conspiracy theory too, Again, four years ago, this blog and its liberal supporters were calling for impeachment for lesser evils. now where are they? cheering on the next drone attack, the bombing of Yemeni civilians, expending the non-war on terror….where is the outrage?

    The problem “unanonymous” is that you blend issues and then express exasperation that no one agrees with you.
    I agree that bombing civilians, use of drones, Gitmo, etc are despicable, and I’m very much voting for the lesser of two evils. I don’t see much good that comes from a president who boasts about who he is going to hunt down and kill.
    However, that doesn’t mean I have to believe the poorly documented (from cherry-picked sources) accusations and conspiracy about Obama having his ambassador killed.
    Just because I dislike some of Obama’s policies doesn’t mean I’m required to believe this wild-eyed narrative.
    Moreover, I believe such unfounded assertions play into the hands of the right (Fox, etc) who have a much worse track record of ignoring human rights in the name of “growth” and corporate profits. I realize that my comments are supporting the Obama campaign, but I’d rather have that than your comments that are basically supporting the Romney campaign. If you think they are the same, you haven’t been paying attention.

    it is ok anon, you can justify your vote for more war, more rendition, more killing of civilians, more violation of our rights. I guess its just a dislike when big o individually picks the targets in the killing of civilians. just go back to your tv and be a good citizen. 1930’s Germany was a popular vote for the lesser of two evils, more depressed economy or expansion and national pride…..
