Obama Campaign [Stephanie Cutter]: Attack in Libya an Issue ‘Because of Romney and Ryan’
Weekly Standard ^ | October 11, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 10/11/2012 12:37:31 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter says that the terrorist attack in Libya is an issue "because of Romney and Ryan": Video

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.

BROOKE BALDWIN: But, Stephanie, this is national security. As we witnessed this revolution last year, we covered it–

CUTTER: It is absolutely national security–

BALDWIN: –it is absolutely pertinent. People in the American public absolutely have a right to get answers.

Obnoxious. Good for Republicans if they care about four murdered Americans and the lies that followed.

So as much as CNN is pocking the obama admin, what has happened?
Are they just tired of lying for them?
Did Turner have a stroke?

Stephanie dear , go back to writing the “Dogtown Blat” obituaries and ‘want ads’ , because obviously you are not competent to think about politics , much less report on it .

And this will be the cry when Zero goes down in flames next month. Nothing is ever his fault. The blame always belongs to someone else.

He claims responsibility for actions others have taken and rejects accountability for anything that goes wrong.

How did this charlatan ever fool the American people so badly?

So this crazy chick is saying that the Administration doesn’t give a damn about 4 dead Americans, that this is only a “bump in the road.” Hey Stephanie, imagine if one of those men were a member of YOUR family would you be saying the same thing? Good God what a b*tch

Well she’s right. The only reason anyone is paying attention is because Romney and Ryan forced the issue and the media has to now talk about it! If not for them this issue would be finished...

Making terrorism and its consequences “politics” is professional malpractice in the Executive Office.

This issue in particular transcends part politics and unites us as ALL AMERICANS

Story at The Blaze "..................After Baldwin played a video montage of the all the misleading statements made by the Obama administration about the Benghazi attack, in which officials, including President Obama, repeatedly blamed the anti-Muslim YouTube video, Cutter blamed the GOP presidential nominee and his running mate for making it a “political topic.”

“The entire reason that this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech,” Cutter said. “And it’s reckless and irresponsible.” “But Stephanie, this is national security,” the host replied.

“It is absolutely national security,” Cutter confirmed.

To be sure, the act of terrorism is also a “political topic” for the families of the four Americans that died in the attack as well as millions of Americans who are still grieving the loss of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, a foreign service information management office, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Sean Smith’s mother went on CNN on Wednesday and accused the Obama administration of telling her “outright lies” about the attack and said the White House was playing politics."

Translation: Waaaa, waaaaa! If McCain were the nominee, he wouldn’t have said anything! He would have let it go by now. Why can’t republicans be more like Lindsay Graham, who came to the defense of democrats this week when that evil Rand Paul put up ads against democrats who voted to give monetary aid to our enemies?? Waaaaa, waaaaa!

Perhaps her thesis is that the adminstration would have told truth, or at least been able to stick to their implausible lies, if Romney and Ryan had not called them on it?

President Clinton could at least rely on the Clinton News Network to frame the narrative in a manner that was favorable to the administration.

All I want is for someone to ask the administration if the reason this happened was because they believed the intelligence community.

And when they say yes, ask, “you mean like how George Bush believed the intelligence community with Saddam’s WMD’s? Where hearing after hearing was held? Where secrets were leaked?”

Just to watch lib heads explode.

CNN was probably threatened by holder and they have had enough of the kenyan terorist in the White House.

Stephanie Cutter is just another on a long list of ill-suited hires for this administration. There’s a pattern here of ineptitude, and a complete void of common sense.

These contemptible juveniles are reliving their bungled youth at our Republic's expense! The elderly ones are the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats who were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

I often include the following because I absolutely believe it. Abe will explain from "the other side."

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Interesting point.

I think I have read Holder (Axelrod) has been threatening people (MSM), so it very possible they (MSM) have simply said, enough.

Never happen. Never, ever happen.

I have a difficult time believing that she said this. No objective, non-partisan person would fall for this. If she’s a rational human being, she must be concerned about holding her base together, because those are the only people who would even begin to give her ridiculous assertion any credence.

It is absolutely national security–

So, Stephie, it is NATIONAL SECURITY, but you lied about it. You try to say it is a video on you tube that 17 people saw.

And I thought the worst president was Jimmy Carter...hell compared to O, he was LBJ!!

That keeps going through my mind, yet CNN is doing some really mostly hard hitting stuff, just trying to figure it out.

Attack in Libya an Issue ‘Because of Romney and Ryan’

1. Hussein 0bama's so-called foreign policy in shambles;
2. Ambassador and three other Americans murdered and their bodies desecrated;
3. Our consulate burned down;
4. A coverup launched that reaches into the oval office and rises to the level of an impeachable offense.

Thank you Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for preventing this from being swept under the rug!

"If those Republicans, headed by Romney and Ryan, would just shut
the hell up, we could get back to the job of doing Obama's business."

Whenever any question about obama or his fellow demons comes up... the most evil and corrupt answer is usually the correct one.
