    I guess the table he was seated at “WAS NOT OPTIMAL”.

    Good call!

    Or… “I can see better, when I can’t see. what I see!”

    just like Bush’s, Nixon’s; Johnson’s screen

    4 coffins, must be the 4 American lives lost in Benghazi
    I disagree; he cares very much about American lives.
    It’s non-American lives he and other Americans appear not to care very much about.

    Fair enough. GWB’s mistakes put me off my food for years.
    Quick question: did we lose more under this President than the last one? And is the next one more or less likely to fight unecessary wars?

    @omQ R

    Yeah, let’s blame America for all the worlds woes.




    And America sits around and does nothing.


    And nothing stands in the way to giving that aid we just don’t care.


    omQ R, we may be full of ourselves but the American people are a most generous and caring people willing to give of ourselves and our resources whenever and wherever trouble comes. Your remarks are insulting.

    It’s October before a presidential election and conservatives hate Obama worse than Satan. There will be more of this.

    Well, today’s FBI report labelled the riots in Benghazi to be spontaneous. Yosemite Sam (President Romney) would have been there for a couple weeks now, guns a-blazing. No need to determine who to shoot or why; he knows everything.

    Just like his shoot-from-the-hip response to the Syrian uprising. Guess he didn’t remember we gave weapons and training to our “friends” to help oust the Soviets from Afghanistan. Our ally Osama bin Laden used those against us as well. Could it repeat in Syria?

    If Romney doesn’t bankrupt us by making health care unaffordable and sending seniors and ex-Medicaid recipients to the emergency room as the only option (“It’s free”, says the dolt), he’ll do so with hair-trigger reasons to go to war.

    There’s a song the Who did years ago called Mingy Stingy, about a guy who had a lot of money. He was afraid someone would take it, so he bought a safe to put the money in and a house to put the safe in and some other security (I don’t remember details). “And his face was very funny/When he counted all his money/ and he found there wasn’t any anymore.”

    If we neglect everything but defense, there won’t be anything worth defending.

    Sorry but I think you are a brick short of a full load…

    Ah yes, one of the favorite groups of my youth. Remember “We Won’t Get Fooled Again?” Well guess what, we sucked up “Hope and Change” and completely ignored the message of the song’s lyrics.

    Mike, You are one sick son of a bitch! I read dozens of political cartoons each week. Those on both sides. this even worse than Chuck Asay,, And that says a lot. Crawl back into your hole!

    Having “called out” some liberal artists recently, I feel comfy saying that this cartoon not only makes the president look callous and shallow(which the conservatives seem to be loving), it also trivializes the deaths of four good men.
    IF all the funds allocated for securing embassies/consulates had been released and used in a timely manner, perhaps the conservatives would not have this foil with which to poke Obama. Had Obama used words in a better way, perhaps the conservatives would be focusing on some other issue or even deciding it was time for their candidate to be more forthcoming with tax and policy info.
    To suggest ANY president, Obama, Bush, or ANY president would casually brush away the deaths of Americans as has been depicted here is insulting to the Office of the Presidency and to us who read it.

    SIX THOUSAND flag draped caskets were BUSH and CHENEY’s fault, for a lie, and they didn’t have the decency to show up when they came home! Because they LIED!

    Obama DID show up to greet these citizens on their return. He hasn’t called for killing tens of thousands of people to “get even” for his own errors.

    He DID tell the truth about terrorism; and in international affairs where maybe our staffs aren’t what they appear in public, NOT telling everyone what’s going in is the RIGHT thing to do.

    Lester, while too disgusting with this one for words, needs to be called out as the liar, fink; and words don’t fail me, but I can’t use them in this forum.

    The initial CIA reports labeled the attacks as “spontaneous”. Susan Rice and other administration officials were just repeating what the intelligence was at the moment.


    Romney’s attempt to make political hay out of these deaths is despicable. Lester’s attempt to portray the President as uncaring is beyond the realm of stupid.

    Obama’s exact words in his Rose Garden speech about those responsible for those four deaths:

    “We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”

    “Your remarks are insulting.”
    Oh boo-hoo.
    Mate, have you read the callous remarks made by you and some of your fellow Americans these past few weeks on this forum, from the left and right, as regards the deaths from drone attacks? Not only insulting, but also morally questionable and offensive.
    Generous indeed. It is on display for all to see.

    “Yeah, let’s blame America for all the worlds woes.”
    I have no idea where you came up with this. Nor do I even know where you’re going with the links and articles you provided. You’re saying something I didn’t even alude to. I alude to the drone attacks.
    But since you’ve brought it up and Scott’s beating on his proud chest, allow me to remind you that in fact I have often stated on this forum that I view much of US or Western aid as Conditional or Tied aid, which is not real aid. That type of aid, and Military aid, as foreign aid is in your own best interests, called realpolitik. The way it is sold to Joe public in the USA makes you guys think you can swell up with pride but really, you should be ashamed of much of the so called aid provided.

    And, while generosity isn’t a competition, I think the Norwegians have us all beat on that score.
