Even the "Shoot first,..." meme isn't totally correct. The fact is that Obama called it a night while the embassy was under attack. He wasn't shooting, he was snoring.

Thanks Jake!! For asking this weasel Jay Carney the right questions.

Tapper is right down the middle. He often plays it right down the middle. Limbaugh kind of likes him.

I would gladly take a hundred more like Tapper. Right down the middle is exactly where the press should be. Just the facts and the truth, no spin.

And yes, the sky on my planet is green.

Why are we talking about what Susan Rice said on Sept 16 when Obama said the same thing to the UN on Sept 25? (Eight days after Fox reported the attack was not spontaneous on Sept 17.)

Mitt Romney would be ahead by 10 points if the rest of the mass media was as even handed as Jake Tapper. Plus I think Newt could have won the nomination or come close to it. Obama and Democrats get an easy 5 points extra from our leftist mass media and they cost them nothing.... While Republicans have to raise more to advertise to get their message out there unfiltered. Obama gets his unfiltered message out there for free from the mass media

Did the movie rage riots occur before or after the Obama administration advertised it to the world in their little blame shifting effort?

How many people were harmed by that lying game?

It’s like playing Duke in the NCAA tournament. You have to be 8 points better than them just to play even, thanks to the refs.

Yes, as a matter of fact, he did have a "campaign event" that he needed to attend, ironically, the venue was the "Cashman Center" in Las Vegas. He also managed to find time to visit the State Department to make sure that all of the players understood what the official lie was to be.

I think the media gives the Dems 10 points easily, not 5.

With an honest press, Romney would be 15 points ahead now.

>> Tapper is right down the middle. He often plays it right down the middle.

Isn’t it funny? When a reporter simply *does his job* and *reports* and *investigates* and *asks hard questions* (of everyone), he’s a hero and a breath of fresh air.

They used to pretty much ALL be like Tapper. And proud of it.

I can’t deny having about a thousand Tappers would be good for US.

At the House hearing, just concluded, the Benghazi Security Officer, Mr Nordstrom, recounted how he begged for more agents there. He was refused but got an increase in hazardous duty pay !! At the conclusion he said he replied to a peer in Tripoli that “House hearing, Mr Nordstrom Regional Security Officer in Benghazi, begging for more help (agents). He was told it wasn’t necessary - but then got an increase in “danger Pay” !!

His closing remark for the hearing, talking about being finally denied the requested agents, he said he was talking about that refusal to a colleague in Tripoli, “Jim, for me, The Taliban were inside the building”.

To be repeated on C-Span 9pm tonight.

Why were Hillbilly, 0bot and Rice so pointed in saying "the U.S. gov had no connection to this video" every time they made one of their apology statements? That seems very strange to me.

Clinton: Anti-Islam Video 'Disgusting' (video 2:56, Sept. 13, 2012)

Watch Hillbilly's face from 18 seconds to 25 seconds when she says the gov had no connection to the video.

I imagine it is because the US government in fact had a connection to the video.

Nah.. he just Lied...

Exactly! He didn't just speak witout first learning the facts. He knew full well what the facts were, but chose to look Americans (and the world) in the eye and flat out lie. When Joe Wilson (I think) yelled out "you lie" during a State of the Union Address, he was absolutely right!

Pakistanis didn't know about any "video" or any "insults" until 0blablah and Hillbilly broadcast this...

Obama and Hillary Apologize for Free Speech on Pakistani TV (taxpayer-funded ads) Sept. 20, 2012

Which immediately resulted in this...

Pakistan: 17 killed in anti-Islam film protests Sept. 21, 2012

0bama then went to the UN and re-inflamed the Muslim world once again over the manufactured offense "Innocence of Muslims."

U.S. President Speaks to U.N. About YouTube Video

Those apologies validated their anger.

Mitt Romney would be ahead by 10 points if the rest of the mass media was as even handed as Jake Tapper.

Mitt Romney, or whomever the Republican nominee happened to be would be up at least 25 points on President Joe Biden, who assumed the presidency after disgraced former President Obama was forced to resign due to the Fast and Furious scandal. If we had a media in the mold of Jake Tapper.

(Biden escaped culpability in the scandal by responding, when asked of his involvement, "Fast and Furious? That was a cool flick, wasn't it? I wasn't in it, though. Who told you that? The sequel was okay, too. Vroooom! Vrooom! *squealing tires sound*")

Good Job Jake Tapper!

Don’t worry about the rest of the press, as soon as Romney is President, they will start doing their job, they will be on him like white on rice, every move, every word, every thought Romney or anyone in his admin says or does will be thoroughly scrutinized constantly questioned, you can be sure of that.
