    The only ones ignoring facts is your side. Obama did not call Benghazi a terror attack. He's on video mere hours after the infamous Rose Garden speech acknowledging that he did not call it a terrorist attack, and yet you left wingers ignore that in favor of your talking points.
    read it and weep:
    “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.”

    Yep.....you are correct Mac. No matter how much they play over the terminology.

    Sept.12: Obama Labels Attack ‘Act of Terror,’ Not ‘Terrorism’

    Sept. 12: Obama delivers a morning speech in the Rose Garden to address the deaths of U.S. diplomats in Libya. He said, “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” He also makes reference to the anti-Muslim video when he says: “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.” He uses the term “act of terror” later that night when talking about the attack at a campaign event in Las Vegas.

    Sept. 12: After his Rose Garden speech, Obama tapes an interview for “60 Minutes.” Obama says he didn’t use the word “terrorism” in his Rose Garden speech because “it’s too early to know exactly how this came about.” Steve Kroft, the show’s host, wonders how the attack could be described as a “mob action” since the attackers were “very heavily armed.” Obama says “we’re still investigating,” but he suspects “folks involved in this . . . were looking to target Americans from the start.”

    Sept. 13: ‘Clearly Planned’ or ‘Spontaneous’ Attack?
    Sept. 14: White House Says No Evidence of Planned Attack
    Sept. 18: Obama Says ‘Extremists’ Used Video As ‘Excuse’
    Sept. 19: Olsen Calls It a ‘Terrorist Attack’

    Sept. 21: Clinton Calls It a ‘Terrorist Attack’
    Sept. 24-25: Obama Refuses to Call It a Terrorist Attack
    Sept. 26: ‘Let’s Be Clear, It Was a Terrorist Attack’

    Now you want to revise what he said in quotes and somehow interpret it to mean he did say it was terrorism.

    Then you magically criticize me for somehow wanting the President to say something. So how about you stop trolling and derailing your own point?

    Im only relying on the quote and what it does and does not say--its typical politician speak for "well, maybe". He doesnt confirm, he doesnt deny.
    You are lying. Obama said it was, and I quote, "an act of terror"

    I have never said anything different than that, contrary to your dishonest claim

    This has nothing to do with anything.
    No, he did not confirm that he did not call it a terrorist attack. He confirmed that he did not use the word "terrorism".

    Im checking the quote....nope not seeing it.

    So we have a quote from J-Mac, care to provide or your own or are you going to keep up this smokescreen?

    Obama did say it was an act of terror---well after the fact and after there was plenty of misdirection and blame towards an internet video. Or do you care to put the timeline up of what statements were made when?

    weeping with laughter now that you have finally acknowledged Obama made the terror attack reference - something you and others have adamantly insisted did not happen

    Why do you persist in putting that reich winger bull**** up?
    All I can say is if you are in any way directing that at any member of this site, thats some highly dergatory language you are using.
    So.....are you?

    "Reich-winger" really is offensive, and I don't think anybody deserves to have such a term used against him or her. Just maybe, it might be okay to accept that others have differing views (obviously wrong, of course, LOL, if they disagree with yours) without resorting to a Godwin.

    And I was so distracted--which is perhaps the purpose of derogatory terms such as "Reich-winger"--that I didn't mention that I think the claim that Obama hasn't given anybody anything to bitch about is just ludicrous.
