(Actor) Rob Lowe: ‘Will Obama explain why our heroes had inadequate security in Benghazi?’
Twitchy ^

Posted on 09/27/2012 11:49:58 AM PDT by Perdogg

Actor Rob Lowe called out President Obama, asking a question that most of the press doesn’t seem to want to ask. They’d rather ask about, you know, the Green Bay Packers. Because that’s important.

On Tuesday, Rob Lowe tweeted about President Obama speaking about the murdered Ambassador Stevens. Mr. Lowe wasn’t a fan of the background.

Rob Lowe seems like a real decent person. His autobiography is excellent—even better on Audible since he reads it himself.

Rob will find himself black listed if he doesn’t shut up and apologize and kiss the ring of “the one.”

Rob Lowe worked in a much better White House than Obama has. True, ‘The West Wing’ was fictional just like the Obama Administration is, but it was less liberal and more believable.

The middle east is burning, America's economy is in shambles and all Obama can talk about is the lousy call the replacement ref's made in the Packer-Seahawk game. He can go play golf, play hoops with LeeBrone, but he cannot figure out what to do elsewhere. The guy is an armature pretending to be a grown adult.

Yep,
Sex tape controversy
In 1988, Lowe was involved in a sex scandal over a videotape of him having sex with two women, one of whom was 16 and the other 22. She was filmed with Lowe during the night before the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta. Lowe has asserted that he did not know that the second girl was underage, and it was confirmed that the two had met at a bar.At the time, Lowe was campaigning for Michael Dukakis.

I was surprised last year when I watched the genealogy TV show “Who Do You Think You Are?” when they profiled Rob Lowe. From the outset he stated he hoped he would find out an ancestor had fought alongside George Washington.

He was genuinely excited to find out his ancestor was an American Patriot even though it wasn’t exactly how he had envisioned it, and he had a hard time keeping it together when he was presented with a membership into the Sons of the American Revolution.

“Rob will find himself black listed if he doesn’t shut up and apologize and kiss the ring of “the one”.”

Rarely do these Hollywood types possess enough intellectual integrity to ask real questions of these Democrats; or else they just take at face value any answer the Dems give no matter how ludicrous. - Anything less would be “unintelligent” don’tcha know?

Interesting comments. I remember Rob from the 80s when he was bedding teenage girls and grooming himself for his next career as a JFK-like liberal politician. That fell apart with his sex tapes (and string of bad movies that followed). After that, he seems to have matured and wised up a little. I’ve seen him do a lot of events supporting the troops. Perhaps the jury is out on his politics now; perhaps he grew older and wiser and thus, more conservative.

Are you sure you're not confusing him with Robert Chambers, the "Preppie Killer," played by Billy Baldwin in 1989's The Preppie Murder?

Tyrants are not responsible to the people. Unlike the President of a republic, there is no need for a tyrant to explain anything, anytime. The ministers of a tyrant are likewise not responsible for truthful testimony to Congress.

Only the form, the shell of our republic remains.

Funny, he was a dim delegate at the 1988 democratic convention in Atlanta. The reason I know is because he got into some hot water while here, when he made a sex tape with a floozie that became public. Thanks to Bubba Klinton, the whole affair is not so shocking now, but it was quite scandalous at the time and threatened his career.

Maybe he's grown up and no longer a dim?

I believe you're referring to Robert Chambers, not Rob Lowe.

I remember that incident with the underage girl at the DNC. In his defense, he was a young man at the time and I don't believe he was aware of her age. Not excusing it by any means, but I think it's an incident in his past that is not necessarily reflective of the man he is today. By the way, I'm pretty sure he's still a lib, so I look at his questioning the One as a good sign.

No he won’t and Lowe will not only vote him, but send him money as well.

This in not about the actors credibility or worthyness of the tweet. Its that even the hollywood dems are starting to question the news. That alone is crazy.

We now see websites CNN and MSNBC not covering Lybia about the truth. Does that mean it did not really happen that way?

He calls himself a centrist, and is registered Independent. He has moved away from total liberalism. He says Dems have empathy, Repubs have logic. He recently was interviewed by Hannity, and praised Gary Senise.

Rob Lowe was attending the DNC Convention when that sex tape scandal surfaced.

I agree. Lowe’s book was superbly written and enjoyable. He’s has had the same, original wife for 25 years, and he gave his sons normal names. I think one of his sons worked in Eric Cantor’s office.

Mr. Lowe has been quite vocal about his turn to sobriety circa 1990 and the change it wrought in his life. He seems to have his head on straighter now (esp. for a Hollywood actor), and we should welcome the prodigal’s return.

Did he serve time for producing a kiddie porn vid? Did he serve time for sex with a minor?

When he does, Maybe I’ll have a better opinion of the freak show

I liked your comments the best. I think you nailed it. Lowe has grown up quite a bit and seems to have matured. A few months ago I saw him doing a cable news interview-—I think it was FNC with BOR——Lowe was very reasonable and mature, he described his politics as middle of the road. He is not the mindless liberal he was in the 80s.

I recall Lowe’s “comeback vehicle” was the TV miniseries of “The Stand” where he played a mute. This same show was my introduction to the great Patriot, Gary Sinise. Maybe Rob got some good mentoring from Gary.

You clearly misinterpret his statement about it being the best thing that ever happened to him - he said that because it helped him change his life, not because it was fun. See: http://articles.nydailynews.com/2011-04-29/gossip/29510322_1_tape-rob-lowe-lawyer

Also, the age of consent in Georgia is 16, which means the sex itself was legal, only the taping it was illegal (since she was under 18).
