Rep. Chaka Fattah: GOP’s ‘attack’ on president over Benghazi harmful to troop morale (*BARF*)
Twitchy ^ | 10/26/12

Posted on 10/26/2012 6:02:37 PM PDT by markomalley

OK, it’s time to let Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the maker of that anti-Muslim video no one actually saw, out of jail — a Pennsylvania Congressman has found the guilty party in the whole Benghazigate mess: Republicans and Fox News.

Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter let us know two weeks ago that “the entire reason [Benghazi] has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.” Her boss told a Denver TV reporter essentially the same thing just today, saying that details will have to wait because “the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened.”

Today Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) also pointed the finger at Republicans (and Fox News) for politicizing the tragedy. Not only are Republicans hurting the president and his re-election chances; they’re also hurting troop morale by demanding the truth from the Commander in Chief.

Fattah’s original tweet on the subject was deleted for some reason.

New reports suggest that multiple requests for military assistance were denied as the Benghazi attack was taking place, and twice today the president has dodged questions, saying that more than a month later, “we are finding out exactly what happened.” We’d suggest the president’s ignorance or incompetence on this issue is a much more serious threat to the morale of the troops (and their families) than Fox’s “attacks.”

Removing Obama from office will cause morale to skyrocket.

the POS CIC actions have an effect on morale. You’d be surprised what they are saying now.

Didn’t Chaka Fattah have some hits quite a while back? “I’m Every Woman” and “I Feel for You.” Man, I loved those songs!!

But the fact the troops now know Obama is willing to abandon them in the field during a firefight is just hunky dory, neh?

No, what is undermining morale is for those warfighters knowing they may be left behind as well, as the 2nd military caller into Rush stated today. ( The call was around 2 or so EST, not sure, was waiting at my son’s bus stop).

You should visit any social ministry and notice the names of the black single mothers that sign up for handouts.

We have a totally lost generation living among us and a future generation waiting for a handout.

Things do not look pretty for these United States.

Knowing that the CoC and his flying monkeys have absolutely no concern for you except as it relates to their own image is the real morale-killer.

Here’s hoping that on his remaining campaign stops the POTUS is greeted with signs and chants of “STAND DOWN”.

How did the moral of our troops fair when Bush was in office and the rats were saying the war in Iraq was lost? But all of a sudden those venting rodent rectums care about America`s fighting forces?

This POS Fattah is lucky he’s not in prison! And his son may be on his way there soon. Just so to givve you a glimpse into what a Dem. bastion Philly is.....Fattah’s wife is the lead anchor with the local NBC affilliate. This cow gets her corrupt husband’s embarassing and illegal antics kept out of public view all the time!!

Whenever I hear the words “Chaka Fattah” I think of some bizarre character from the bar scene on Tatooine in Star Wars.

Oh, wait . . . .

yes, because democrats have always been sooo concerned with not politicizing military issues in order to minimize their impact on troop moral.

Rush Limbaugh used to refer to Fattah as “Chaka-full-o-nuts”.

Anyway, most African Christians have Christian given names and scoff at the Africanated names of some American blacks. And they have been horribly persecuted by their fellow Africans who worship the whitest of all white men, Profit Muhammad.

Why doesn’t someone investigate how this POS bought a vacation home in Shohola PA on the Delaware River for $425,000 cash? His son is not the only one who is a crook.

Chakka Fattah? It sounds like something you'd cough up after eating something Moochelle scared up in her easy bake oven.

By the way, where is she? Kind of like she dropped off the face of the planet.

What the hell is a Chaka Fattah?

He did a pretty good cover of a Prince song, "Feel for You", back in the 90's.
