    Yet another Republican foreign-policy success: Obama will really have to work overtime to keep up!

    And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

    Have a nice day!

    “I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video,” – Barack Hussein Obozo lying to the world in his speech to UN General Assembly 2 WEEKS following the Benghazi attack

    • kent doering

      Goodness. You still around doing a Tea Party Troll number in the National Memo – after Obama won the last election. You were screaming “Obozo must go for years before he was re-elected. He is a healthy man in middle age- but he will eventually go as you wish, when another Democratic President is sworn into office in 2017.

      So, wherever you are in the “good ol`South”, boy, keep on doing your crystal meth and drinkin´ cause your thinkin`is stinkin´.

        Pay no attention to Bozo — he is nothing more than a foolish clown. He accuses anyone who agrees with our President of worship of the President. Yet Bozo is the one who expects supernatural knowledge and actions from the President.

      • BillP

        Bozo can’t help himself, he doesn’t have anything better to do. He claims this site is a sewer but spends a good deal of time here. He doesn’t ever offer any positive comments just his copied and pasted quotations and immature cartoons.These he tries to pass of as signs of his intelligence. (sic) but doesn’t even realize that a lot of people he quotes are liberal.

      So you are saying that he SHOULD have said “Yeah, the CIA financed that! Wanta make something of it?” That statement was, as far as anyone has revealed so far, simply a fact. And the fact is that, in addition to the hatred that extremists in the Muslim world feel for the U.S. already, we did not need this video to recruit MORE extremists (which seems to have been the aim of the private individual who DID make the movie). And there was no cover-up of Benghazi: at the MOMENT of the attack, which was intentionally disguised BY THE ATTACKERS to look like a reaction to the video, that was what everyone thought (remember, attacks in Egypt at the same time WERE a reaction to the video); after more facts were revealed, the President, the Secretary of State, and the ambassador realized they were wrong at first. But the President DID say it was an act of terror, EVEN when he thought it was connected to the movie, since that would not make it less of a terrorist act.

      The people involved in this situation are being “investigated” for a “cover-up” because they did something that, apparently, is forbidden in the conservative world these days: they corrected their initial assumptions in accordance with newly discovered FACTS. And as we all know, REALITY has a “liberal bias.”

      As for the original topic, which you did not respect in bringing up a totally unrelated subject, if all that we accomplished by 10 years in Iraq was to hook China up with a new source of oil, that shows bad policy by those who started the war. And no, Obama did not rent a time machine to go back to 2002. If Democrats HAD a time machine, then Al Gore would have won in 2000.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Alan, you cannot say with a straight face that you believed the lies about Benghazi being over a movie. You’re not that THAT stupid. Come on. Even ABC News knows that Obozo was flat out lying to them and they have the evidence to prove it in the 12 revisions of the memo from the CIA that in it’s first version was completely truthful. Who cooked up the lie about the stupid movie? How can you believe that that ANY of the actual protests like in Egypt had anything to do with the movie when the truth is that prior to 9/11/12 the video only had less than 100 views globally? How can you be so blind to believe that a movie that NO ONE saw was more relevant to muzzy protesters than the anniversary of their greatest attack on America? Dude, I know you’re a leftist freak, but come on, you can’t be THAT blind that you just believe every damned thing that flows from Obozo’s or his groupies’ mouths? If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck…. it’s a duck.

        You will see… Benghazi is a cover up to hide illegal arms dealing to Al Qaeda rebels in Libya and Syria. The scant few journalists who are doing honest work are coming out with this.

        On the oil to China thing… I thought all you leftist freaks were pissed because you thought Bush was going into Iraq so America could make money on their oil???? Now you’re crying because Iraq is selling the oil WE should have to China instead? Typical leftist freak hypocrisy. You can’t have it both ways, Alan. In my opinion, we SHOULD HAVE taken control of their oil for a long time as payment for getting rid of that tyrant Saddam. To me, that is legitimate. You leftists didn’t like it, so now China gets the oil and you complain about that.

        Have a nice day, Alan!

        “4 Americans are dead. What difference, at this point, does it make how they were killed?” — Hillary “Wide Load and Cankles” Clinton lying and shilling to change the topic in front of a sham of a Congressional inquiry

          Who gives a shit dickhead. Move on!

        • Allan Richardson

          I don’t have time to address all your points, but to start, you did not read me carefully. I did NOT say that, AFTER gathering more information, the administration STILL believed that the attack was caused by a movie. I did NOT say that the attack WAS caused by a movie. I said that, since other unrest in Egypt JUST BEFORE the attack on Benghazi, it was a reasonable FIRST ASSUMPTION, BEFORE other information was available, to believe that; an assumption that was CORRECTED by the presence of new data.

          And by the way, in a society with mostly oral face to face (and phone and text) communication and rumor mills, the movie probably did MORE damage if only 100 people saw it and spread their impression to thousands of others, than if 10 thousand people had seen it for themselves.

          And you have deliberately misinterpreted Ms. Clinton when you portrayed her as “not caring” in a MORAL sense about the deaths of four American foreign service employees. Rather, she was saying “what difference” did it make in PRACTICAL terms for ACTIONS GOING FORWARD. The administration wants the same thing the GOP committee CLAIMS to want: to understand how to prevent future attacks by terrorists. But the committee is not acting as though it CARES about future attacks; if it did, it would be recommending MORE BUDGET RESOURCES for the State Department to increase security. It ONLY cares about keeping the American people focused on “gotcha” tricks while ignoring things we REALLY need to be doing: making the economy even better than it is; fixing bridges and overpasses such as the one YOU probably drive on every day, so your sorry * and mine, along with those of innocent people, do not fall into the drink; restoring the middle class to its pre-Reagan share of the economy’s wealth and restoring common social infrastructure to allow more people to move from POVERTY to MIDDLE CLASS. Apparently, they are doing a very good job of distracting YOU.

          • Sand_Cat

            You seem too smart a guy to argue with this moron. Just consider him the day’s entertainment and ignore him, or deliver the insult he deserves without answering his points. No matter what you say, he always has an answer, and his posts are rarely about the article anyway.

    • KLZΔ

      coming from a troll with a name dedicted to trash the Pres. It makes sense the comment would have nothing to do with the article..

      • ObozoMustGo

        Obozo trashes himself. Afterall, what else could a piece of garbage like him do? I just point it out. I’m just the messenger.

        Have a nice day!

        • KLZΔ

          A stupid messeger at that. Too bad RWNJ’s like you hate the Pres more than you love your country. It’s More like loyalty to trollin. Have a nice day..

          • woody

            words of wisdom don’t rub off on bozo

          • Sand_Cat

            Obozo loves his country? I must admit, he had me fooled, unless “his” country is not the United States.

        • kent doering

          I`d tell you to go to hell, but you`ve already gone there. Heaven and hell are states of mine, you litle devil.

    • ralphkr

      Judging from your cartoon, it is obvious that Obama is hearing the sound of all the TEA-Party & GOP BS artists.

      • Allan Richardson

        Let’s be polite and change “BS” to “BDBP” for Bovine Digestive By Products. At least ONE side of the argument can be civil.

        • BillP

          Good comment. I have sen the term Bovine Fecal Matter applied to Bozo but I like yours even better.
