Good-bye Twit Mitt, and good-bye Lyin' Ryan!

It's being called his Lehmann Moment!

Crass, exploitative during a National Emergency which called for national unity, disgusting politicizing at a time of national prayers!

He is Done!

And he based his whole attack on a statement made before we even knew the status of the attacks or knew if anyone had been killed, or was in danger of being killed.

"We have to be clear eyed in the face of grief."

Hillary Clinton.

Presdent Obama gave us the picture of a rational, thoughtful Presidential responses.

Mitt just proved totally that he does not belong in the Oval Office!

Well folks, Mitt finally did it. Just as some of us knew he would, he continued to yap his head off, and he has now gone way too far, and even Republicans, Representatives and pundits, are saying he has destroyed his shot at the presidency.

His disgraceful statements over the last twenty-four hours, have completely destroyed any possibility for him to win any title other than dog catcher! What he did was reprehensible!

Uh Oh, in fact, he couldn't be trusted with dogs, come to think of it.

So before the RW jumps in here to deny this statement, that Mitt's chances are over...do avail yourselves to the information on the internet which is chock full of outrage over his statements, and his un-American behavior.

This huge flub, along with being caught again in the standard gross lies made by Mitt, et al, which have been through the roof over the last twenty-four hours, lying again this morning, criticizing the President, at a time of National grief and distress over the Middle East Embassy attacks, before our people had time to access the inherent dangers to our people over there.

Tremendously irresponsible! Tremenndously Un-presidential! Tremendously STUPID!

It's all over now, kiddos!

Only a leftie would come to such a silly conclusion. Even though Romney will not get my vote, he will still win in a landslide.

You are a real joke!

Republicans across the board are condemning Romney's disgusting behavior.

Mitt Romney Criticizes Obama Administration Over Response To Libya, Egypt Attacks </span>

"I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi," Romney said in the statement. "It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

The two diplomatic outposts had been the site of violent protests on Tuesday evening, as fundamentalist mobs swarmed in rage over rumors about an unreleased American film -- promoted in part by the Koran-burning preacher Terry Jones -- that supposedly projected the Prophet Muhammad in a harshly critical light.

Protesters breached the wall of the embassy in Cairo and burned an American flag on its grounds before replacing it with an Islamic banner. In Benghazi, a mob driven by the Islamist militant group Ansar al Sharia rampaged through the American consulate, firing at least one rocket-propelled grenade, according to the Wall Street Journal. At least one American staffer was killed in the violence.

The violence took a domestic political turn, in part thanks to a statement released early Tuesday by the staff of the Cairo embassy, which condemned the film and the "continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."

The Romney campaign's statement seemed to be an attempt to capitalize on the appearance that the Obama administration -- which has overseen the Arab Spring, and the rise of Islamist governments in both Egypt and Libya -- was capitulating to the sensitivities of an unruly Muslim crowd, rather than backing the right of an American citizen to release a disrespectful film.

But the statement criticized by the Romney campaign came early in the day, before the attacks on the two embassies, and was put out not by the White House, but by the Cairo embassy itself.

The White House later disavowed the statement as not approved by Washington, according to a senior administration official speaking to Politico.

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt also commented on the statement from the Romney campaign. “We are shocked that, at a time when the United States of America is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya, Governor Romney would choose to launch a political attack,” LaBolt said in a statement.

In a statement released late Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the attack on the mission in Benghazi "in the strongest" terms, and added that while the U.S. "deplores" the denigration of religion depicted in the film, it would not countenance such violent responses.

"Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet," Clinton said. "The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind."

The Libyan government also released a statement condemning the attack on the American Consulate, calling it a "cowardly act." And the Muslim Brotherhood, the ruling Islamist party in Egypt, said on its Twitter page that that it "regret the attacks on [the U.S. Embassy] by angry protesters, and we urge citizens to express their opinion peacefully."

This story has been updated to include a statement from Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt.


Mitt Romney Attacks President Obama Over Libya Crisis
WASHINGTON -- On Wednesday morning, hours after the deaths of four U.S. diplomats, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Mitt Romney put his campaign on the line by attacking President Barack Obama and the besieged diplomats in the Middle East.

Romney, in a statement released Tuesday night, had called the president's handling of the Libya and Egypt attacks "disgraceful." Wednesday morning, Romney hastily scrapped a campaign rally in Jacksonville, Fla., dismantling a campaign stage, and instead held a small press conference in which he repeatedly defended his criticism of the administration, slamming embassy officials in Cairo and President Obama. "When our grounds are being attacked, and being breached, that the first response of the United States must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. And apology for America's values is never the right course," he said, slamming the Obama administration for "sympathiz[ing] with those who waged the attacks."

The attacks at the consulate in Libya, and a separate incident at the U.S. embassy in Cairo, came on a day of violence and anger over rumors of an anti-Islamic film scheduled for released in the United States and circulated on the Internet.

Romney's assault on Obama was rare among Republicans. Sarah Palin and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus joined him in condemning the president, but no other significant GOP leader thought it prudent to immediately single out the president for criticism. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) all put out statements on the crisis, none attacking Obama.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>A host of Republican foreign policy officials were quick to blast the "utter disaster" that was Romney's response.</span><span style='font-size: 20pt'>Romney's reference to an "apology for America's values" was directed at a statement the U.S. Embassy in Cairo put out on Tuesday morning, but that statement, which was itself responding to the outrage over the anti-Islamic film, was issued before the embassy was attacked, despite Romney's statement to the contrary. What's more, the statement does not apologize for America's values, but rather supports a founding American value, religious tolerance, while referencing the "universal right of free speech." </span>The statement in full:

He's done, for good! IT'S OVER FOR MITT THE TWIT!

No Republican is backing up his disgraceful behavior! Even

Joe Sarborouh condemned it this morning alon with a whhole panel of journalists and Republican ass kissers.

He came out and ran his mouth before any attack had happened, and before our CIA and Foreign Policy people had even confirmed who was in danger.

Totally inappropriate, and he made a total FOOL of himself!


His Campaign, if you can call it that, is OVER, and just as I wrote here long ago, Mitt will put his own big golden foot in his mouth and destroy his own campaign, we won't have to make things up about him, he will hang himself quite well all by himself!

Nice headline writing, as I've noted before, btw! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

In a perfect world, what you say is correct.

Whether it works out that way or not is not so certain, though.

Thanks, /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Well, I think, my friend, that this may well do the trick!

I can't recall ever hearing so many RW media pundits and Even members of the candidates own party, coming out and condemning their own candidate's statements and actions, and coming out in such outrage against their own candidate, ever before...well, not in my lifetime, anyway.

I think this may well do it. We all know that when tragedies like this occur, early information is usually not correct, which is exactly why it was so stupid for Romney to put his mouth into it before we were even sure about what had occured, or if any of our people were at risk of any danger. REALLY STUPID OF MITT! BIG TIME!

I think...


And then, Lyin' Ryan came out to try to clean it up, but...

My take is that the majority of voters will not know anything about this or even use it sway their vote which is still months away. If he loses it certainly is not because of this.


09-12-2012, 03:28 PM
You are correct, if it more or less ends here, or swiftly, in a day or two.

If the media goes berzerk on this, and there is a full feeding frenzy, then there may be a different result.

Republicans speaking out, if they do so in the open and for attribution, may decide which way the media goes.

09-12-2012, 06:46 PM
The media will go whichever way they believe most benefits Obama.

09-12-2012, 11:37 PM
No, they go mainly by their own villager sensibilities.

They are now extremely offended by Romney's lies, whereas before, they pretty much took them in stride.

It would have helped Obama greatly if the MSM had already been in high dudgeon about Romney's lying ad campaign. They were not.

The difference? Straw that broke the camel's back, perhaps, and especially when it grotesquely lies about the incident in which an ambassador was slain. Shameless, and then doubled down.

It is outrageous behavior that finally got their attention. Once these memes set in, they are destiny. The MSM will indeed end Romney's chances such as they are.

When the MSM lets Romney and his surrogates repeat something on TV which is a lie, time after time, night after night,day after day and not call them on it, then then the lies become truth.

Same thing happened under Bush and <u>this</u> I think proves it.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Poll: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>70% believe Saddam, 9-11 link</span>

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly seven in 10 Americans believe it is likely that ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the Sept. 11 attacks, says a poll out almost two years after the terrorists' strike against this country.

Sixty-nine percent in a Washington Post poll published Saturday said they believe it is likely the Iraqi leader was personally involved in the attacks carried out by al-Qaeda. A majority of Democrats, Republicans and independents believe it's likely Saddam was involved.

The belief in the connection persists even though there has been <u>no proof of a link between the two.</u>

President Bush and members of his administration suggested a link between the two in the months before the war in Iraq. <u>Claims of possible links have never been proven</u>, however. </div></div>

In the run up to the Iraq war, Cheney, Rumsfeld etc could go on TV and spout any crap they wanted to and not be challenged. They made claims that they had absolutely no proof of.

You don't often catch someone like Cheney in this <span style='font-size: 14pt'>clear-cut a lie.</span> This happened only 3 days ago. I want outcry, and I want it know.

Borger: 'Well, let's go to Mohamed Atta for a minute, because you mentioned him as well. You have said in the past that it was, quote, <span style='font-size: 20pt'>'pretty well confirmed.' '

Cheney: 'No, I never said that.'

Borger: 'Okay.'

Cheney: 'Never said that.'

Borger: 'I think that is . . . '

Cheney: 'Absolutely not.</span> What I said was the Czech intelligence service reported after 9/11 that Atta had been in Prague on April 9th of 2001, where he allegedly met with an Iraqi intelligence official. We have never been able to confirm that nor have we been able to knock it down.'

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>On Dec. 9, 2001. Cheney talking to NBC's Tim Russert:</span>

Cheney: 'Well, what we now have that's developed since you and I last talked, Tim, of course, was that report that -- <span style='font-size: 20pt'><u>it's been pretty well confirmed that he did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April, several months before the attack.</u></span> Now, what the purpose of that was, what transpired between them, we simply don't know at this point, but that's clearly an avenue that we want to pursue.' </div></div>

Borger knows he's lying and all he can say is 'OK'.
