    According to Axlerod, the job is far too complex for Obama to handle.

    You just said he can't handle the job of commander in chief because he doesn't know anything about it.

    because if an administration's best defense for multiple failures resulting in the death of a us ambassador and 3 other brave americans is incompetence...
    Does this include the same accusation that Stevens was killed because of his own "incompetency"? What the @#$! does that have to do with the link you just posted that you could not comment on?

    what could you possibly be protecting
    Me? WTF!
    Come out of orbit, FFS.

    PS....try using the quote mechanism and stop hiding.

    Stevens doesn't have the authority to give stand-down orders to any military unit, so his incompetance is irrelevant.

    Not at all. The attack was on the Consulate. Survivors evacuated and relocated to the Annex to make their stand.

    FFS....he was on the ground, he knew the risks, he was receiving it first hand. If he didn't feel that his own skin was in danger, how then can his boss half way around the world be accused of incompetence and Stevens is not. What was it, he was chained to his desk?

    You guys have such limited abilities.
