HOW DO YOU THINK THE PUBLIC IS LOOKING AT THESE EMBASSY/TERRORIST RIOTS?

Posted on 09/15/2012 7:27:11 PM PDT by 7thson

I am curious as to what people on FR believe how the general population is viewing what is going on in the MidEast.

I hope - I do not like using that word - that there is a slow building anger going on within the American public. How does everyone else think and see this? Do you think the majority of the population are putting this in thier brain-pan and will vote this dangerous man out of the White House?

Egg on Obama’s face. On his watch. No end of hostility from the apology tour. Weakened America. Jimmy Carter 2.

most people do not have a clue what is going on, including my wife.

if i didn’t tell, she wouldn’t have a clue.

rat’s don’t pay attention, only the marxists/fascists. their mind is already made up.

you just have the idiots that will vote for the dems no matter what.

i married into a family like that. the rats are for the little guy, therefore we will vote for the rats.

they have no idea what is going on in the world. all they know is they have to vote rat.

blessings, bobo

Most people who support obammy could care less what happens in the rest of the world. All they want is government money.

There is only one proper response to the invasion of American sovereign soil and the killing of American citizens. The Administration has failed to make a proper response. It is therefore of no use to Americans.

Watching WETA's broadcast of I Claudius ~ we are now to the point where Caligula has brought boxes of seashells to the Senate to show his victory over the god Neptune.

Now even the most servile and obsequious Senators anymore fail to notice that the Emperor is totally stark raving mad.

We have had an ambassador assassinated ~ and he doesn't even care ~ ran off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas.

Romeny’s fault, no doubt.

No, I hope not, really. The questioning of the filmmaker is a disgrace to our nation. George Washington must be rolling in his grave.

Sadly, I do not think the general public are paying attention, but they will as soon as the gas prices start to spike. That will get their attention and Romney had better be ready to hammer on the WH for this entire fiasco.

I remember when the Iranians took the 52 U.S. citizens hostage and how the nation collectively reacted. The media didn’t shield them from it, much. With the Sept. 11 attacks, same thing.

Today, a U.S. ambassador was killed, and I am certain I didn’t see even a ripple in the public’s consciousness. Some flags on public buildings were flying at half-mast but I think these people would be hard pressed to come up with an explanation of why.

(It’s interesting to note that the Iranians took the U.S. citizens hostage Nov. 4 1979, exactly one year before the Nov 4, 1980 election.)

” ~ ran off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas.”

And partied with rappers. And tweeted about it 47 times.

But, to be fair, he did tweet about the death of four Americans once that night.

Obama has failed to deliver what he promised. He was naive to think his past experience was a reason for the Muslim culture to trust him. Obama is in deep trouble and is spinning to do what he does best; blame someone else.

If the American public didn’t learn about the true nature of Islam after 9-11, and actually went ahead and elected as their President Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the Marxist son of a polygamist Kenyan Muslim, then, no, I doubt very much that the American people are angry at all about what’s going on in the ME, including the murder of the American ambassador.

People who don’t ‘watch’ politics like we do, don’t have a clue and don’t much care - I think. The Islamics go into mad riot mode from time to time. Maybe the dour looks on the faces of Obama and Hillary makes them wonder a bit more...?

They don't blame Obama. It's not his fault; everything is out of his hands.

That's not how they'd see it for W, of course. Everything was his fault.

America is wondering if their collage football teams won today and if their NFL teams will win tomorrow. America is happy Olate Dogs won AGT. America is wondering when Brittany Spears got fat and average looking...

America is going to get what it deserves. As hard as sites like this and other conservative media outlets have tried, there are not enough people concerned enough to stop the insanity. They are taking us all down with them.

Received an email today with President Reagan’s photo that reads: “In 1986 when he was president Libyans killed Americans. He bombed their leader’s house. Libya was quiet for 25 years. Then someone apologized.”

Well, end of that ~ Claudius is made emperor and Caligula is definitely out of the running for office ~

He had been having a great time ~ partying, with friends, gambling, ...... do you realize that you couldn't have scripted this particular KOINKYDINK ~ this is an even bigger portent than the denial of God 3 times, etc.,

The auguries suggest Obama's time in office is coming to an end.

I believe people are wise to Obama's shenanigans, and do take National Security very seriously.

My guess is that this is going to only get worse, and will sink Obama's boat. The more they try to spin it, the worse they will look.

This isn't "just about sex," this is about our lives.

It wasn't very quiet over Lockerbie Scotland in 1988.

The overwhelming reaction is isolationism, honestly. Asking why we had anyone in Benghazi in the fist place.

The gut reaction of the person in the street is essentially that we should close all our embassies and consulates in the Middle East, and withdraw the military from the Middle East.

In my humble opinion we need to all make anti-Mohammed movies—the more the better. We need to flood the internet with those insulting messages and then LET THEM BRING IT ON! Better now than later, when Pakistan has lost control of their nukes and Iran has nukes of its own. I don't think Obama has a chance this election.

Until you point out to them such action would result in $10 a gallon gas. For 40 years we as a nation have refused to let go this ME tarbaby because of our insanely stupid "Green Energy" political agenda of the Democrat Party leadership

Romney would go up 10 points in the poll if he started hammering US Energy Independence as the key to dealing with the ME mess.

The best thing about the Conservative New Media is that it gives Independent voters who pride themselves on their independence a new way to express their independence, by saying “I watch CNN, but I also watch FOX”, “I read the NY Times, but I also read Drudge”.

I am very hopeful that Centrist Independent voters are switching back and forth between the major networks and FOX, and I don’t buy into this pessimistic “most people are idiots who don’t pay attention” crap.

It’s not that they don’t pay any attention or don’t care, it’s that they’re just not that passionate or partisan as hard core political junkies. That doesn’t mean that they’re completely out of it and can’t use their brains.

So I think that in terms of Independent voters, this crisis is a big loser for Obama. Obama hates FOX with a passion, because he knows they don’t just preach to the choir. He knows that Independents watch it in order to get some balance.

Exactly. And unfortunately, most of America doesn't care about or have any understanding of the importance of what's happening overseas.

We’ve been wondering the same thing. My husband keeps pointing out that whenever Obama speaks there is never any anger or outrage over what happened to our people. We’re hoping that the general public notices this as well.

Is there such a thing as the Reagan Democrat anymore? If so, will these be the ones who swing the election?

Concerning the polls - depending on the day, the time of day, and the venue, I hear poll swings from Obama to Romney. What to believe?

I just get the feeling that Romney is letting this slip away.
