    That would be wrong. If you read my posts regarding each issue you'd find out differently. For instance... I'm against the IRS having targetted groups with the litmus being what partisan lean you have. I do have issues with that and I've stated this in previous posts.

    It's just that unlike my conservative brethren in this thread, I have the consistency to be displeased with whatever party is in charge when it happens rather than try to throw flak as if it was sooooooo different when it happened under one or the other.


    * edit...

    Here ya go... from yesterday when I first commented on the topic of the IRS:

    Be as hauty and superior as you want - you still didn't address the issues. And since you're on it about innocent lives and non-American lives, I guess you're on your high-horse protesting in front of the White House to stop Obama from bombing people from drones, many innocent and in the wrong place at the wrong time and some American citizens. You're such a principled and values oriented person, right?

    No, there were some Americans killed in those attacks, but those who were were killed while out in the public doing embassy business - they weren't in their bedrooms in the embassy/consulate under seige.

    Karachi consulate attacks

    June 2002 attack

    On the morning of June 14, 2002, a truck with a fertilizer bomb driven by a suicide bomber was detonated outside the United States Consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. Twelve people were killed and 51 injured, all Pakistanis.

    Terrorism in Uzbekistan

    Embassy bombings

    On July 30, 2004, suicide bombers struck the entrances of the US and Israeli embassies in Tashkent. Two Uzbek security guards were killed in both bombings.[14] The IJU again claimed responsibility.[12]

    Terrorism in Saudi Arabia

    On December 6, militants staged perhaps their most brazen attack, the storming of the American consulate in Jeddah. They breached the compound's outer wall and began shooting, though they did not enter the consulate itself. A Yemeni, a Sudanese, a Filipino, a Pakistani and a Sri Lankan—all employees of the consulate—were killed, and about ten others were wounded. All of the gunmen were killed.

    Damascus bombings

    September 12: Three gunmen and a Syrian security guard were killed in a foiled attack on the U.S. embassy. Gunmen tossed grenades over the perimeter walls before opening fire with automatic weapons. A car bomb was detonated outside the embassy, although a truck bomb filled with pipe bombs and gas cylinders failed to explode.[5] Thirteen people were wounded, including two security guards and a Chinese diplomat.

    Embassy of the United States, Athens

    A minor terrorist attack occurred in the early morning of January 12, 2007. No casualties were reported.

    The issue is.. how far are you willing to do the splits in parsing the difference in dozens upon dozens of people being killed in attacks on American Consulates including several Americans one of which was a US Diplomat and that of four Americans one of which was an Ambassador. The more you push this the more it shows how fake such outrage is.

    Well with The Kenya Incident.....Don't you think the Democrats should have to explain why the Security Improvements they made failed again. Stating this will never happen again..... why it has come round again? Again Warnings, lack of security, and now the Murder of a US Ambassador. In Which Ansar Al Sharia is controlling the whole region. But we are being told we will get those responsible. As the Investigation in Libya isn't going anywhere.

    Isn't that part of Improving security? Yet Team Obama has made no move to do so.....huh?

    You're good at dodging questions you're too uncomfortable to answer - that's your choice. Okay, let's try it this way - in how many of the cases you cited, did President Bush or his administration blatantly lie to the American people about the circumstances or causes of the attacks?

The majority of voters made the wrong choice and you're going to have to live with it.
    CJ, I didn't trust Romney back in 2008, voting for McCain in the Georgia GOP primary, also for McCain in the general. So my distrust goes back farther than just last year. Last year I was a Johnson man. I couldn't vote for either one, in my opinion the least worst candidate. If you remember back on politico, I said as much. Even if you get a win out of the least worst candidate, he is still a bad winner or president. In my opinion the GOP picked the wrong candidate to challenge a very vulnerable sitting president. In fact their whole field was pretty weak.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    No one blatantly lied. That is in your head. All you got is them being wrong about the movie instigating the situation and if that is all the GOP sharks have at this point... not to mention why would anyone give a rats ass what caused it... then you guys got nothing but noise.
