Posted on 10/10/2012 4:34:32 PM PDT by Kaslin
RUSH: Now, last night and this morning, we have a montage. Diane Sawyer. ("Recycliiiiiing! Recycliiiiiiing!") She was livid! They are all, in the media, outraged Obama would jeopardize his campaign that they've worked so hard on. They've carried the water everywhere. They have built Romney up to be this horrible, rotten guy who hates half the country; who sat idly by while a guy's wife with cancer died. They've said Romney is a felon. They've done everything the regime asked! They have carried the water, and now they are outraged Obama lied to 'em in the middle of a campaign and he's exposing them.
DIANE SAWYER: This is an incredible breaking news tonight! So any explanation for the change on the story?
ANDERSON COOPER: There was no protest. That contradicts what we've heard from other corners of the administration even days after the attack. How can that be?
JOHN MILLER: This seemed to be an investigation into the facts, and what it's come to is a debate on politics.
ROLAND MARTIN: In the middle of a presidential election, it makes the White House look confused and the State Department look confused. That's a problem.
NORAH O'DONNELL: We are in the midst of a presidential campaign right now. And this administration told the American people that this was a protest that went bad and that it was opportunistic and that these "militiamen" came in and took advantage. We learned last night there was no protest! This was a planned attack.
RUSH: As if you didn't know that. You people... Ms. O'Donnell, did you really believe from the get-go that a video was responsible? How closed-minded or ignorant do you people have to be? See, I think they do. I think liberals are liberals, and they do believe that something like this video could be responsible. Just like the Dutch cartoons. They believe it. They fall for it.
Now, you might say, "Why are they seemingly turning on Obama?"
'Cause they look at themselves as partners.
They're all on the same team.
They are equals. He's a liberal. He just happens to be the president. But they're all liberals. They just happen to be journalists. They're liberals with bylines and he's a liberal president, but they're all on the same team. And he has exposed them. He sent them out to lie for him when he knew it was a lie, and they're taking that personally. Think of it as your best friend hanging you out to dry, somebody you've done everything for, somebody that you have loved and adored and looked up to and thought was the end all to everything -- the embodiment of perfection -- and your existence carries so much importance.
The White House Disinformation Campaign on Libya
Your election, wiping away 200 years of evil, discrimination, slavery, and all of that. And you're in on it with him. You made it possible. You got him elected as much as he did. And he openly lies to you. Openly lies to you on your own network, in your own home, and then corrupts you and incorporates you in the lie. Maybe he doesn't love us. Maybe he's using us just like he's using everybody else. Then the Big Bird thing hits, and they get mad at that, 'cause they think that's small ball. Big Bird? Give me a break. You get your butt kicked in a debate, and your reaction to it and your response is Big Bird and you're the only guy that's saving Big Bird and Elmo? It's embarrassing.
So the honeymoon is over. Now, there's not gonna be a divorce, they're not gonna abandon the guy, but the honeymoon's over. Don't doubt me on that. Here on CBS This Morning today, we have the senior correspondent John Miller, and they're talking about the State Department saying that there was no protest and there was no video, it had nothing to do with it. Cohost Anthony Mason said, "What do you expect the State Department to say in response to this report that they were being told there was a problem at the embassy before the attack?"
MILLER: The State Department's gonna do two things. One is they're gonna give the first detailed account of what really happened on the ground. I believe their main point is going to be security can go up or down based on the threat situation, but we've never seen an event like this, since the storming of the US embassy in Iran in 1979.
RUSH: Oh, we've never seen an event like this since Tehran 1979. We've never seen anything like this since Jimmy Carter. So now we're closing the loop. We got the Jimmy Carter second term in the economy and we got the Jimmy Carter second term in foreign policy. And these have been used. Obama didn't include them in the lie. Obama lied to them, too, when they thought they were equals, coequals on the same team with the same objective. And now they find out they're not that special, at least not as special as they thought, that they're taken for granted. It's just assumed that they'll carry the water in whatever way necessary. And so now there's a little -- don't doubt me on this -- a little introspection going on at certain levels of the Drive-By Media.
State Dept Holds Conference Call on Benghazi Terror Attack - Excludes FOX News
Think of President Clinton's cabinet after Monica. Drudge runs the story, Clinton and Lewinsky, getting Lewinskys in the Oval Office. Clinton goes out, calls the cabinet in. (Clinton impression) "I want to tell you something, I'm gonna go out and I'm gonna tell the country in just a second. I never once had sex with that woman. She is making all this up. I can't believe anybody would think that I'm even capable of doing something like this. I am president of the United States." And right after that, Madam Albright, Madeleine Albright led the cabinet out, the driveway at the White House, stood up for Bill Clinton, "He wouldn't do anything like this. This is a rogue. This is a right-wing conspiracy," whatever they chalked it up to.
Then they found out Clinton lied to 'em. They didn't abandon him, but there was a little gloss off the relationship, a little of the rose off the bloom, or vice-versa. If this administration will lie about something as important as the death of an American ambassador and three other Americans, why should we doubt that they might lie about the unemployment rate?
RUSH: Kirsten Powers on Fox last night, Special Report with Bret Baier.
POWERS: It's completely outrageous that nobody from Fox News was on this call. Susan Rice sat at this desk and sat at multiple desks around this city and weaved an unbelievable tale that had already been disproven by other reporters. There were already reports saying that it was quiet outside the embassy before. And I just urge everybody to go back and look at the transcripts, at how specific she was, at the specific details she offered about how it was a copycat of what was going on in Cairo and how it built and built and then these people came in and took it over. They're accusing Mitt Romney of lying in the debate. The lying that's going on here should be causing a, you know, front page scandal in this city.
RUSH: That's Kirsten Powers on Fox. Fox was not invited to participate in the conference call where the State Department admitted to everybody else in the news business that there was no intel that said a video was responsible, and that there was no spontaneous protest out there. And she's right, we played you the video already today. Susan Rice, our UN ambassador, went out with specific detail about how this protest started from nothing. It was a copycat of what had gone on earlier today in Cairo, and it just built and built and built, and finally, finally, the word of the video spread, it got so many people so mad that it just exploded. All lies. Every bit of it lies. Specific, word by word, lies. And she's also right that this should be a front page scandal all over Washington, DC and the TV networks.
RUSH: So Fox News breaks the story along with Eli Lake at The Daily Beast, who's been doing some great work on covering the cover-up at the State Department/White House of the Libya attack. Then Fox is excluded from the State Department conference call where they basically fess up. Do you think the other media protested that Fox was left out? You look at the New York Times print edition today and you will not find one word about this story.
You will not find one word in the New York Times print edition.
You won't find it on the front page. No mention of the Libya revelations on the front page of the New York Times. Although they do report, breathlessly, that Bain Capital does a little business with China (twenty years after Romney has left them). But nothing on the front page about this. This is not front-page news to the New York Times that the regime lied and the State Department is now 'fessing up that the video had nothing to do with it.
The media has supported someonen who has not been honest with the American people. Now, they are guilty by association.
The MSM and outraged? You’ve got to be kidding.
It is because of the MSM that we are in the unholy mess that we’re in.
More than that. They are traitors and should all be shot for aiding and comforting the enemy along with their Leader and hitlary.
Obama was busy playing golf and congratulating himself for Bin Laden which blinded him from reality. He is toooooo full of himself!
What, did the media get their pretty blue dresses stained?
Come on people, this is Obama. Of course he’s a liar, and especially when anything Islamic is concerned.
He’s the guy who had a picture taken of him talking on the phone with Netanyahu while his feet were up on the Oval Office desk with his soles facing the camera. It’s a big FU to us, just like the middle finger he held along his face during the Hillary debates.
And today, I read on FR and WND that the wedding ring he wears, is a ring he’s worn for at least ten years before marriage, and the “intricate Indonesian design” on it says the Shehada (”there is no God but Allah”). Don’t you think the Arabs he’s had meetings with haven’t noticed it and read the characters?
If Obama starts to really tank, the MSM will not allow themselves to go down with him. They will turn on him under the pretense of being fair and balanced.
The NYT is not fit for lining a bird cage. What a horrible waste of trees!
BS! Each mediWhores should be awarded the Oscar! Outrage and betrayal?...C’mon man

0 deliberately refused to provide armed protection to the embassy so as to kiss the a$$e$ of his friends. This allowed them to murder the ambassador. If Bush had been president, the media and dems would be screaming that Bush let the ambassador die because he’s gay.
The HE instructed his staff to lie, and blame the murders on a few minutes of video.
The Main stream media is FUBAR.. complaining about slimy white stuff all over their clothing and beards..
Obama is just not that good a shot..
They’ll just wipe it off and act like it didn’t happen..
**(metaphor edited to mean exactly what it says)..
Their pet black has turned out to be a snake. Idiots.
The media whores complain that Obama screwed them? Jeeze.
they KNEW they were propagating bald faced lies the whole time, now they have been exposed. too bad so sad
Could the LSM be talking truth because they’re losing their viewership to Fox over this?
Don’t look now, but they are already starting to turn on him. It will be more interesting when someone in those hearings asks the magic question; Who was it that came up with the YouTube video story and who pushed it?
We hear at FR know this is light years beyond Watergate, way beyond. This has the capability to destroy the MSM as we know it and Beck will own 30 Rock long before he could have dreamed. The other is that when this gets going, the Democrat Party as we know it will cease to exist, possibly forever.
Where are Harry and Nancy now?
I’ll start reading the NYT again after it gets bought out in receivership by Steve Wynn or Donald Trump.
Yuri Bezmennov mentioned how eventually the useless idiots, with wide unbelieving eyes, are placed in front a wall and shot.
When the LIE over the spontaneous demonstrations of a (I can't wait to see IF we ever find out the conspiracy behind the making of that video) then these gutless lying liberals started accusing Republicans of cutting 'security' funding.
Today's hearing put that LIE to bed. There was NO shortage of funds. Yet to be disclosed is WHY Hillary's group refused to provide security.
The liberal media knows he lies to cover up his messes. They gladly repeat the lies.
They did it with fast and furious and got away with it. They did it with Libya but the problem is that State came out and told the truth which exposed them all lying. That is betrayal. It’s not supposed to happen.
The lying choir only works if everyone can be trusted to lie and ignore or dis the truth. State could not lie anymore because the Congress had them by the short hairs.
Murdering soldiers with the globalists’ pc jihad policy in Afhganistan is one thing But kill an important person - an ambassador?! A gay ambassador!? That is going to far.
Why should businesses advertise on these networks to promote such lies which hurt the country?
Was context left out, because this is one of those journalese sentences with lots of buzzwords that says NOTHING WHATSOEVER.
What’s important here...the February 17th Martyrs Brigade got their school lunch program via $30 per day stipend.
Otherwise, FOX has twice the viewership of any channel, there is a damn good reason!
Wow, are these guys on it or what???
Looks to me like Diane Sawyer was about to cry.
The MSM wants more political advertisement money from Obama or they will cry.
There is no chance in hell, imho of course :-) They still think Carter should have won.
I believe you're right but my guess is that they won't turn on Obama until is it certain he'll lose. Then they'll act like a bunch of Jackals in a feeding frenzy.
Will the Clinton machine go down with Obama? Bill Clinton is out there campaigning like crazy. Maybe he knows something is going on. If the Clinton people turn on Obama, the MSM will probably turn on Obama.
We know that a lot of this is feigned outrage. These people are all LIEberals and they expect the lies; LOVE the lies and want to keep the lies coming.
But, this isn’t just an Obama issue. Recall a few years back the “I never had sex with that woman - Miss Lewinski” that became the heart of the Great Right-Wing Conspiracy scandal. The DBM knew that Bubba was a liar and a rapist and they did their ever-lovin’ best to push the whole, great Right-Wing Conspiracy angle . . . . . . . . . . . . until a semen-stained blue dress materialized.
The same is true, here. This is just the repetition of that which is probably a repetition of the Kennedy-Monroe scandal, and so on.
The fact is that lying is the central foundation of the Democrat Party and its sycophants such as the DBM. Today, they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar and now they are denying that they were anywhere close to the cookie jar. Despite the lack of any evidence, they will tell us that the ONLY one who had cookies was Obama!!
And, they wonder why both print and TV “journalists” are held in such low regard by most Americans, today. Perhaps if they ever watched or read their own dreck . . . . . . .
Nah. Even though they have the money, they won’t spend a penney of it to buy a clue.
Dont look now, but they are already starting to turn on him. It will be more interesting when someone in those hearings asks the magic question; Who was it that came up with the YouTube video story and who pushed it?
It astounds me that no one has asked that simple question. Susan Rice
Didn’t go out there without O and Hilly knowing about it beforehand.
Carneyval can spin like a top, but that’s the one question he doesn’t want,
And won’t answer.
As an aside, I ROFL every time Rush impersonates Diane Sawyer...."Reeeee-CYcling!!!"
I would gladly take Obama’s Nobel Prize and give it to David Chapelle, who is a real talent.
Will people in the State Department jump ship, before the Obama ship goes down?
I’m just wondering how much “legs” this has with the voters. I hope it does, but I’m not sure.
Thanks for posting this.
Reminds me of David, Bathsheba, Uriah the Hittite & Joab. Aw, never mind....
Yes they love lies, but only when they think they’re fooling conservatives. When they’re the ones being fooled, it’s not so funny to them anymore.
Pat Caddell knows what these people are.
Partially true. Liberals live in la-la land and love the lies as well. They don't tolerate the real world particularly well and need the lies to reassure them that their fairytale la-la land is safe and secure from reality.
IMO, most conservatives know when the libs are lying and don't buy into them. We live in the real world and don't get caught up in the la-la land fairytales like the libs.
Great point! Thanx
Im just wondering how much legs this has with the voters. I hope it does, but Im not sure.
Ii think it will stick with “ thinking voters”
The attack in Benghazi began at 9:40 pm. 6 hours ahead of the US. So, by 3:45 pm, there would have been maydays and requests for assistance yesterday.
The Administration heard this in real time. 3:40-45. Where were Clinton and 0bama? Where were Panetta and Clapper? WHAT DID THEY DO ALL AFTERNOON and evening?
This also means that earlier that day, in Cairo, when? by noon? after noon prayers? the American embassy in Cairo would have fallen.
Meanwhile, Eric Holder (and possibly 0bama) was in Doha, Qatar, at a conference with other Arab nations on ‘recovering assets’ of the US. They were all sitting there together. Just like a den of vipers. How clued in were they?
0bama had a video in which he said, “Here in Qatar,” so, given the time zone, and the speed of AF1, HE could have been there, too.......while Holder STAYED, although he came home “early.”
All these details are in multiple news stories. But from soup to nuts, from opening remarks to the dominos made of our embassies and the assassination and murders of Americans, there is no effing way the WH and State did NOT know all of this. All of it.
And the media would have listened in for chits and giggles. I’d lay better than even money that they knew all the while.
Every last damnable one of them should be keelhauled over the Marianas and cut loose afterward to swim for shore.
