Cold political play could cost him the election --

The Benghazi debacle may yet make Mitt Romney president.

Barely 10 days before the election, the persistent whiff of scandal surrounding Barack Obama exploded into the banner headlines of a cover-up – at least among certain press outlets.

Everything changed Friday afternoon with the stunning revelations by Fox News that CIA operatives defending the embattled consulate in Benghazi, Libya, called three times for emergency assistance while the attack was in progress. Each time, they were shamefully turned down.

One of those defenders, Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, was apparently able to use a laser designator to pin-point the location of the mortar that eventually killed him. It would have been an easy shot for American pilots had any been ordered to respond.

This incident may (hopefully) stir up decent folk, but alas, what I see (hear) it has little impact on Obama supporters.

The day of running criminals out of office is nearly over!!!

“I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way”

What exactly did Obama do to “secure” their lives???

He didn’t say “secure their lives.” He said “secure those Americans.” He has secured them. Their dead bodies have been returned.
