    How very true, but as the poles show, many Americans are concerned about what Obama will give them than about holding him accountable.

    He pissed on the Constitution and acted illegally. Oh, well, I still get my entitlements and am afraid the other guy will take them away.

    He got troops killed in the field because of his inadequate and often stupid ROE in a war zone. Oh, well, I still get my entitlements and am afraid the other guy will take them away.

    He didn't provide adequate security for Embassies and Consulates, resulting in dead diplomats. Oh, well, I still get my entitlements and am afraid the other guy will take them away.

    He has established an apologist and weak foreign policy, even stating that he wants US actions to have International approval before we take them, subjugating our Sovereignty to the UN. Oh, well, I still get my entitlements and am afraid the other guy will take them away.

    He established an Energy policy based upon environmentalist fantasies, wasting billions while people have seen their fuel costs and energy cost continue to rise and our dependence on foreign oil increased. Oh, well, I still get my entitlements and am afraid the other guy will take them away.

    How many bad things does he do, that actually harm us, but yet a lot of the voting public still take the attitude "Oh, well, I still get my entitlements and am afraid the other guy will take them away"? I guess they just don't realize that in the end, the bankruptcy of the country due to his policies and those like his will definitely end their entitlements.

    And yet calling him the "Food Stamp President", which he is of course, is 'racist'. Pointing out his incompetence, his bewilderment, his narcissism, is racist.

    The issue instead is Mitt Romney's tax returns or speaking out before BHO chats up "The Pimp With A Limp" or fundraises with his Vegas audience.

    This grievous error of the last four years has to be corrected in November, and I think it will be.

    I can't think of what could be more insulting than to believe that our servicemen can't be trusted with live ammunition.

    The property the consulate site on is American land.

    Any invasion onto that land is call for extreme force to protect the American lives within.

    Is this something you did not know?

    And picking on it will make if bleed and fester. Look at what good those filmakers have done for Al Qeada now. They will make Islaminc heroes of them yet.

    CAIRO — Al-Qaida's branch in Yemen praised the killing of the U.S. ambassador in Libya in a Web statement Saturday and called for more attacks to expel American embassies from Muslim nations.

    The statement suggests al-Qaida was trying to co-opt the wave of angry protests in the Muslim world over a film produced in the United States denigrating the Prophet Muhammad.

    If Muslims are impressed by those who murder innocent people, including women and schoolchildren then they are already beyond redemption.

    And why not? Americans continue to blame each other for these attacks. That will suit AQ just fine.

    Do you suppose Obama might finally change the rules and allow the Marines to put bullets in their guns?

    The embassy is also located in the middle of a soveriegn country. So what part of extremely outnumbered and completely surrounded don't you understand?

    The notion that you can just send in the infantry and conduct military warfare is naive and absurd, especially when it's not the country's government that's attacking the embassy. The only obligation the diplomats have when under threat is to get the hell out of there ASAP before anyone gets injured, kidnapped or killed. It's the diplomats that have value, not the small patch of land in a foreign country. Because if they're gone, then there's nothing left there of value to protect.

    Anything less is a faillure to obey a general order, deriliction if duty and cowardice under fire, cort martial offenses and punishable by death.
    Ambassadors and diplomats are not Marines.

    Son, the last time you leaped before you looked, over 8,000 of our young men and women came home in body bags and another 100,000 were wounded. The American people are **** full of conservatives phoney bravado and lying us into unneccessary wars.
