Skip to comments.Fantasy v. Reality
Posted on 09/14/2012 8:35:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
There has been a complete lack of reality this week in our government and media.
Words are not deeds. This is especially important to remember if youre the President of the United States who has essentially talked himself into office.
Behold a paragraph from President Obamas stirring acceptance speech at the convention:
"The historic change sweeping across the Arab World must be defined not by the iron fist of a dictator or the hate of extremists, but by the hopes and aspirations of ordinary people who are reaching for the same rights that we celebrate today. So now we face a choice. My opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy, but from all that weve seen and heard, they want to take us back to an era of blustering and blundering that cost America so dearly.
Now take a look at this Atlantic map of Muslim protests around the worldtoo many of them to count without a scorecard.
Obamas fantasy land was matched in the media.
To cap off the week in which our mainstream media beclowned themselves and proved conclusively that they are drowning in the Obama tank, the New York Times jumped the shark that jumped the shark.
On the papers homepage, in the above-the-banner box that appears only when theres breaking news of importance to report but no time yet to write it up, comes the results of an opinion poll.
And whaddya know? Its a poll favorable to Obama?
Isnt it time for Obama and The New York Times to throw themselves under the bus?
WAJ Adds Just saw this really shocking:
The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it wont answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete.
Im going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation thats its got, State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon.
So Im going to send to the FBI for those kinds of questions and theyre probably not going to talk to you about it, she said.

This is pathetic. RT @BuzzFeedPol: RT @joshrogin: State Department: Stop asking us about the Benghazi attack goo.gl/4jpv9

Just weird how the topic was more about Romney instead of the Real News! Amazing.
We already have the sordid details.
The Arab “spring” was just an excuse to thoroughly destabilize the remaining countries holding the line for whatever reason in favor of regional stability.
When Iran was tested, did obama hop on the wagon to promote “freedom”? Of course not. He let that fire of freedom be extinguished.
But, he managed to meddle wherever it disserved our national interest.
Only blinded eyes can fail to apprehend these things.
Thanks for the ping!
I wonder how many football games will be disrupted Saturday?
Obama burned in effigy..... chants “Obama, Obama we are all Ossama”
Do you believe this is about an obscure video?
Was it caused by the boasting from the President of the US, the great Satan, that “bin Laden is dead, GM is alive”?
The MSM and left has to deflect the blame to some video on Youtube to protect the President from embarrassment. The fact that the MSM is placing the blame elsewhere is only making the Jihadi’s even more angry and more prone to attacks.
They are going into Bunker Mentality.
Hey, no biggie. All the U.S. has to do is monitor YouTube now.
The anti-Semitic stuff can stay of course.
So begins the cover-up. The FBI will find, exactly what they're told to find.
Oh, I thought those were hotel searches! lol
Did anybody ever think that one regime could screw America over so much so fast?
It’s kinda amazing what these incompetent idiots have managed to destroy in under 4 years.
Obama says his grade is incomplete because he has a lot of work yet to do? I say, no Barry, you’re completely done, now hit the road ******.
They are making words/videos/phrases the culprit in an attempt to convince the Sheeple that we really need to curb the “abuse” of our Freedom of Speech. It’s just another stepping stone on the path to absolute control of the People...The are completely focused and will continue this lie because it is necessary for their goal of subjugation to come to “fruition”.
this is why we need to vote for Virgil Goode or anyone else not named Romney so we can send a message.. because we all know a protest vote is not wasted.
(yes, I’m being sarcastic)
Just an observation: The Arab street is very easily manipulated. Where is the intelligence on the manipulators? I would think they are likely members of the Muslim Brotherhood and the usual passel of crazy imams.
So why for just once, don't we bring it back to them? These simple fools are easily manipulated, why don't we do the same back to them?
Instead of dreading the million Muslim march at Tahir square, or the millions at Mecca during the haj, why don't we look at the real situation...ITS A TARGET RICH ENVIRONMENT!
No vote is ever wasted if it reflects your principles. If it sacrifices your principles on the altar of survival and victory, then and only then is it wasted.
