Skip to comments.CURL: Obama’s protective press cordon
Posted on 09/16/2012 5:26:57 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
A full day after the U.S. ambassador to Libya was brutally killed by a Muslim mob, another mob attacked Mitt Romney. While armed only with pens and notebooks, the cabal meant to inflict the same outcome on the Republicans presidential campaign.
Protecting and defending President Obama through his failures and blunders and gaffes is a full-time job for Americas mainstream press corps and theyre getting worried. So, they attacked the GOP nominee for his reaction to the U.S. Embassy in Egypts statement condemning the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.
Was that appropriate? Mixed signal? Jumped the gun? Seven of eight questions were on his statement. It was an another embarrassing day for the national media, and the slap-down was short-lived; within 48 hours, the Middle East and North Africa were in full-blown crisis, and details began to pour out about all the administration had done wrong leading up to the first killing of a U.S. ambassador since the one term of Jimmy Carter.
The U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, it turned out, was barely guarded; the mob easily breached security and swarmed in. Worse, a U.K. newspaper reported, the U.S. State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and lockdown.
In the days following the killing, the White House scrambled to pin blame on something or someone anything but them. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the violence in Egypt and Libya was in response to a video, a film we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting, referring to a YouTube video, The Innocence of Muslims.
Of course, the claim was preposterous....

shame on presstitutes!!!
Last I heard it was the FBI...now it's under Holder's purview?
Can you imagine if the Bush administration had refused to talk about Abu Ghraib...Guantanamo, etc. etc. etc. only 24 hours after they happened.
The State Dept. is unable to dig to find out some facts about their own embassy?
This is not acceptable!
Without his black skin and his media pals Obama would still be a Community Organizer
in Chicago making a living by scamming little old black ladies out of their welfare money.
WALK it back...without “them” he'd still be a community organizer...
WALK it back AGAIN......without “them”....He'd still be an affirmative action black guy....
(”them” = “We the people”....Do your own DD!)
It will make NEWS!
Point out their oversampled phony polls. Point out all the passes they give Obama and never give Republicans.
NO PASSES FOR ANYONE, REPORT, WE'LL decide.
“If you were a REAL journalist, you wouldn't cover up for Obama”
“If you were a REAL journalist, you wouldn't lie about X Y Z”
“Do you realize that to get unbiased news from REAL journalists, you have to go to Pravda and UK papers.”
Many more I'm sure. You get the idea.
Used to be that MSM fact checkers could protect Obama simply by declaring this or that is true/false. But it's coming too fast, stronger action is needed; enter the flak chuckers to shoot down the opponents themselves and not just their facts -- the the MSM truly are Obama's servile, complaisant, undistinguished media (SCUM).
Void the bowels of Washington this November!
IF the liberal journalists act as a group think pack then there's no reason to have more than one asking questions. Romeny should limit questions to one liberal journalist and one conservative journalist. Yeah, real 'diversity' among journalists... a black liberal, a white liberal, a straight liberal, a gay liberal, a poor liberal, a rich liberal, a foreign born liberal, a transgender liberal... yeah, diversity.
The press is terrified that a defeated Obama will mean that all the lies and cover-ups and negligence they’ve engaged in to put and keep Obama in power will uncovered. That’s why they are all in this 110% for Obama, and to anybody who isn’t a true believer it’s beginning to look ridiculous.
The ones who aren’t scared don’t care, because they are counting on Romney to save them if Obama loses.
Romney, like Bush before him, will have zero interest in investigating the wrongdoings of his predecessor. “Time to move on”.
This is Dan Rather and the fake memos writ large. Sadly, they aren’t going to get called on it.
Picture worth ten thousand words - "The little boy" did not get his way - this wasn't in the news, but it sure can be visualized.....
"Poor baby" did not get his way and had a "tantrum." Bet you won't see this on network TV:
Obama leaving a meeting with Congressional leaders after Cantor told the president "Republicans would not vote for his proposed tax hikes."
"This idiot displays his true class and respect for the office." Just goes to show once again, that there is no fix, or excuse, for stupidity and ingrained ignorance.
Obama picked up his toys and stormed out of the meeting, kicking the door open!
There, my friends is the leader of our country...... aren't you proud?
Picture didn’t work...
