The Right Scoop ^ | 10/23/12 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 10/24/2012 6:19:31 AM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

"But I tell you these emails say to me that if anybody at the White House thought they could cover this story up by referring to the Muhammad video with this documentary evidence in real time, then it wasn’t just a cover up. It was an incredibly stupid cover up."

“How did they think they would get away with such a STUPID lie?”
IMO, they thought the MSM would simply not report it and the issue would go away.

4:10 embassy under attack
5:00 meeting w/Odungo Biden and Secretary of defense in Oval office according to WH log book....

So I’m guess they knew less than two hours after it happen...and Biden’s “in the dark”’ lie is falling apart

Because 90% of the media will simply print what they're told to, and the 10% who will actually report the truth are marginalized by that same lapdog media.

Look at the 'rat spokespeople -- e.g., Debbie Wasserman-Schulz and Stephanie Cutter -- they would rather tell a blatant lie that admit to any fact that isn't optimal, because all they care about is the immediacy of winning the news cycle and they know the media will cover up their history of lying.

They thought they could get away with their stupid lies because Barry is black. Anyone who questions anything he does or says is a racist bigot. Simple really. And it usually works like a charm.

They knew before it happened, IMO, perhaps even orchestrated “protests” to cover the arms running to Syria.

Obama's going down!

But in other more important news, Gloria Allred reports that Romney once testified in a divorce case about his friend's role as father to his sons. /s

ABC is on it also. Wonder what NBC is going to do? I understand their anchor (Williams) has an interview with “O” today. Wonder if he will probe this?

The disturbing thing here is that the security briefers went to the trouble to knowingly insert false information into intelligence reports to the President of the United States in order to make them conform to the White House’s “It’s all the video” narrative. Instead of telling the President the truth, they told the President what he wanted to hear for political convenience. The President contends that he relied on these reports to amplify his “video” narrative. As a result, the security apparatus fed him even more information supporitng this view.

In engineering, we call this a feed-back loop, where an error causes a greater error, and so forth, until the system is so far from reality, it breaks down.

If the intelligence community is intentionally feeding the President bad information, then our security policy is being dictated by the Democrat Talking Point of the Day, and we are going to be constantly doing the wrong thing.

This is a failure of leadership. The problem is that the President rewards the people who tell him what he wants to hear, and punishes those who tell him the truth.

The President should tell his advisers, in no uncertain terms, that he wants the clear, unvarnished truth, as near as they can determine. He should then make a big deal over firing advisers who “shine him on”, until he is convinced that everybody is doing his job.

I think Hillary and zero were actually trying to gin up unreset and cause riots all over the middle east. They got on TV repeatedly and even took out ads on Pakistani TV describing how horrible this video was! If I was a Pakistani I would seek out the video to watch it after seeing them talk about how horrible and deaming the video was.

If they really thought the video was the cause of the attack and wanted to calm people down, you don’t talk about the video in detail and shine a light on it!

If Petraeus knowingly went along with this, his reputation will go straight down the toilet, as it should.

Because the colluding media has always covered for them??? Seriously if they were going to win you would never here about this except for a few days on Fox, the internet and on talk radio. The usual operating procedure would be dead silence in the rest of the media and it would be dropped in a few days....non story(instant that what we have heard about every other story about this administration and Obama himself....story after story that would have destroyed a Republican).

Where is the picture of all the horrified and concerned members of obimbo’s cabinet as they watch the murder of Americans? Hillary was stunned looking when they watched osama being captured and killed. Why can’t we see the same concern now??? Oh, I forgot, they did not know about it.

Well, hopefully, what goes around, comes around. Hillary was one of the Nixon persecutors with “What did they know, when did they know it”. Back at ya, hilly!!

The DEMs in the Senate blocked his nomination to US ambassadorship under Bush, and would do the same thing again. The GOP senators, except for a few, lack the fortitude to make an issue of the dysfunction that allows a minority of Senators to veto a nomination without even bringing the nomination up to a vote.

” How did they think they would get away with such a STUPID lie? “

It has worked since Jan 2009.

But this WAS amazingly STUPID : )

So is this enough to bring him down this election? Will he try to deny. One wonders how Obama puts out the fire at this point?
