    Got that?
    1 dead ambassador, 1 dead ambassador's aide, 2 dead SEALs is hardly right wing.

    Please read what I write here.

    Navy Pride and others in this thread are attempting to use this event for their own partisan purposes because they have long demonstrated hatred for Obama as President and they are hoping this will catch on and help defeat him in the election next week.

    Now please do not reply to anything else and direct it to me.

    So? He doesn't have a right to be pissed? 1 dead ambassador, his aide, and 2 NAVY SEALs.

    FF is incompetence and a cover up.
    Watergate was direct illegal behavior and a cover up.

    A better comparison would be Clinton's alleged military transfers to China for campaign donations and the cover up and Watergate.

    Who said he did not? What I said was that this was a blatant exploitation of the event for pure political advantage.

    by the way - I think almost every American is angry about the loss of American life in this event. This is NOT something that only gets the right angry.

    There was absolutely intent - you don't send the Ambassador out to five different talk shows on the same day by accident. "Lying to the American people about a terrorist attack in which a US Ambassador was murdered and his body dragged through the streets" is not "poor management". That is deliberate mismanagement.

    Really? I thought that since Obama was president now, being angry about dead Americans overseas was sort of passe? Or are the massive anti-war protests still going on and I'm just missing them.

    You thought wrong.

    btw - the last time I saw "massive anti-war protests" I did not even have kids yet. I now have three grandchildren. So this has very little to do with just Obama.

    Which is all irrelevant since it is not a crime to lie about what happened. Watergate was ultimately about Nixon using illegal abuse of power to hide the fact that his cronies were doing everything possible to sabotage the opposition in the 1972 Presidential election. No matter how you slice it, comparing this particular incident to Watergate is nothing but partisan stupidity.
