You are right. You don’t deserve the nasty comments. I wish Obama hadn’t come. I watched the service, but muted Hillary & Obama. Everything else was very moving and appropriate, IMO.
So, they didn't get a t-shirt at the Memorial of the men who died in Libya but they did give out t-shirts at the memorial for Arizona shooting victims?
“Stop spamming the same link over and over.”
He just joined today, a newbie spamming? Wonder if he is a retread?
Please accept my apologies.
This one joined 9-11-2012. Wonder if this one is a retread? They are coming out in this thread.
Do you have a predetermined mindset, too.
"The President and Secretary of State were proper to be there to speak about these men."
I'd agree with you but when the campaigning started, their words were not about these men.
It was about covering their tail ends.
Marcella, can you see how Obama typically works? It is not genuine, even when he is on telepromter. It is about him.
I understand that the Secretary of State presides over situations when the personnel is directly under the position SOS. If this is protocol, Hillary was properly there - Obama was not. He was on a campaign stop.
It was not a press conference although he got face time anyway.
it was a campaign stop worked into a sacred memorial.
Good point you have here, Fledermaus.
I heard every word spoken there and both the pres. and sec. of state were formal and appropriate with their words.
I can’t believe none of the family members didn’t spit in the face of the these bastards.
That's a kicker. They did not conduct themselves appropriatly once the memorial became a campaign stop and a venue to work in the idea that they weren't responsible.
It was the movie..yes, that's right; "that's the ticket".
It was the movie that caused all of this; our hands are clean.
How much these families and friend must be grieving. I cannot imagine the pain they are feeling.
If you vouch for Marcella as a conservative Freeper, I'll take you at your word. That's all I need.
But it seems like Marcella is trying to sweeten up this situation.
I think most of us here, for this thread, are angry. Angry that 48 hours of warning was given and not taken and that Obama and Clinton are blowing smoke up our asses with the whole story of the film being responsible.
There is fear, too. If this guy gets elected again, I think things will get very bad, very quickly and will not be reversable for years.
He promised a transparent presidency. In drips and drabs, it is becoming more transparent in ways I don't think BHO intended. Thank you for clarifying Marcella's bona fides.
The deaths of these fine people were the center of the service today as they came back to this country. It saddens me some Freepers had to politicize this service as it definitely was not.
I also see names of Freepers here I've never seen before and they certainly don't know me to make a judgment. Then, there is one that is a newbie today and another one new from a couple of days ago. They don't know how to act on this board and/or they may be retreads. As to what happened in Egypt and especially Libya, we don't know the answers yet and there are many rumors out there about this and that. I'll wait until more definite facts are known before I throw rocks. Many on this thread and others are knee jerking before they know the facts. That's the way I work - research, find out the facts, then make a plan and execute the plan. I don't know the facts yet.
Jim R. has provided your conservative bona fides and stands with you so I will take you at your word.
I try not to be nasty and call people names - I try to stick to facts to make my point. Sure Hussein is a genuine communist, that label is true, and both he and Clinton need to be out of office. However, today, they were respectful and proper.
I'm also a master prepper and I hope you have stored water and food for the difficult times ahead.
Why are you willfully ignoring the facts?
Another freeper explained the logistic situation up thread. The President was too busy to go to Dover AFB for the photo op so he had the flight diverted to Andrews AFB. This required an additional flight to the Dover AFB mortuary. How considerate of him.
This is disgraceful. Why are you defending Obama?
Marcella, I’m no fan of obama or hillary and do believe they, primarily obama, have much to answer for in what is happening in the ME. This was a ceremony to receive the four killed in Libya.....a very sad/solemn occasion. You seemed to think it was dignified and would comfort the families, and I was glad to hear it. They deserve to be comforted.
Besides, I’m not a flamethrower on FR (at least I try not to be).
If Clinton and Obama had any dignity, they should of committed Seppuku on Natinal TV due to their incompetence. I guess the empty pageantry of quiet desperation in the form of meaningless drivel of disingenuous words by creatures so vile that they condem Divine nature by their deeds, covers a multitude of severe screw ups in your world. Get a clue please.
