Senator John McCain traveled all over the Middle East during the 2012 Presidential election. One of his stops, during his travels, was with Chris Stevens our then newly appointed U.S. Ambassador to Libya. Click here to see July 7th, 2012 photo of John McCain and Chris Stevens.
Senator John McCain Chris (Chris Stevens) insisted on personally making me a cappuccino (July 7th, 2012), a task that he carried out with as much pride and proficiency as his diplomatic mission.
Surely Senator John McCain didn't see a problem with the security surrounding Chris Stevens, during his July 7th, 2012 visit, or he would have told us. Or would he?
One thing I still say as the Presidential election winds down in 2012. Republicans are certainly entitled to their own opinions but they are not entitled to their own facts. Just because you repeat a slogan ten thousand times does not make it fact. One thing Republicans like to claim they represent and Democrats are completely devoid of is "Judeo-Christian values". However, taking a real close look into the conduct of Republicans and their "leaders" one wonders just what "values" these folks are talking about.
This ain't complicated! If Sheldon Adelson can afford to give Republicans $53.4 million he can afford to pay his fair share of taxes. Sheldon Adelson is betting his $53.4 million on the Republican Party and Mitt Romney because he knows if Mitt Romney gets elected he, Sheldon Adelson, will get billions in tax breaks.
Benjamin Netanyahu can say he doesn't want to get involved in American politics, but when we take a closer look at Benjamin Netanyahu and Mitt Romney's campaign donors it be comes obvious that Benjamin Netanyahu and Mitt Romney are on the same page.
Kansas City Star JERUSALEM -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have acknowledged a friendship that goes back decades, but the financial ties that also bind them became evident last month when the premier [Benjamin Netanyahu] revealed his list of campaign donors. Read more.
Benjamin Netanyahu, Mitt Romney and their big money donors think they can buy the election here in America and then use their influence to drag us into a war with Iran. I don't trust these guys. Remember the USS Liberty?
Hurricane Sandy has come along and put a hold on campaigning in the Presidential election. While the East Coast is distracted with more important things over here in Western Kentucky we can still think politics. And since a massive storm has come along to slow things down a bit it got me to thinking. What would be the Romney/Ryan vision for Americans that are beset by similiar tragedies if they do indeed win the White House.
It seems as if as much as any President ever, Barack Obama has had plenty of myths swirling around him and his rise to prominence. While right-wing loonies are always going to hate anyone that does not agree with their stone-age vision of the world Barack Obama seems to have his fair share of folks that just simply hate him no matter what. Since this is America, these folks are entitled to their own opinion. However, as I have stated before they are not entitled to their own truth, or myths about the President and what he has and hasn't done in the White House.
One Republican tactic we have become all too familiar with. Republicans lying by saying they seek to help "small businesses" with their trickle-down economics. Even bigger is the lie that any of their opponents are proposing to destroy those same "small businesses". In truth all they really care about is protecting huge corporations from having to pay fair wages, give benefits, pay taxes, and follow sensible regulations. As in the case with President Obama, Republicans care little about the truth or those "small businesses" they use as a talking point.
Indiana Republican U.S. Senatorial Candidate Richard Mourdock: “I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
Before Americans step into the voting booth on election day they need to bear one thing in mind. While Republicans are certainly entitled to their own opinions and vote, they are not entitled to their own truth. And while I realize that both sides engage in untruths and misinformation in campaigns it seems as if Barack Obama has faced more than his share of untruths directed at him. We all know that the collapse that crippled this economy ocurred before he was elected and that as soon as he took office he was faced with a huge mess to clean up. The big lie is that his policies were enacted to do so and failed.
Tonight we watched a Republican candidate get schooled in a debate by an incumbent President. So much to the point that he started just mostly agreeing with that President to milk the clock out. However, when Mitt Romney wasn't learning about nuclear submarines and that the Army does not have Calvary anymore he tried to resort to what he has used this whole campaign. Lies. However, one lie regurgitated from Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity just does not stand up to scrutiny.
With the polls tightening in the Presidential race the likelihood of a Romney Administration is growing. Which brings the question up, besides more trickle-down economics what would a Romney Administration mean? Disaster for millions of Americans. If you were born after 1957 then you should read on and consider what a Romney Administration could cost you.
I know I have been mostly absent for a long time now and I do apologize. The last year or so I have faced many challenges and it has been hard to remain focused on much. However, the last couple of weeks I looked up and noticed a very frightening thing. Many Americans are seriously considering giving Mitt Romney and the Republican Party he "leads" control of the White House once more. I cannot sit idly by and not fight against that happening with every fiber of my being.
The Benghazi consulate attack cost the lives of four Americans. U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, both former Navy SEAL commandos working as diplomatic security officers. The fourth was Sean Smith, an information management officer.
The Benghazi consulate attack was a tragedy and became political immediately. Tuesday, September 11, 2012 10:24 p.m. Mitt Romney had this to say:
Huffington Post "I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi," Romney said in the statement. "It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."
