The Libyan issue revealed the true character of Obama. But not in the sense that many would like you to believe. According to what part of the country you hail from, you've heard expressions like: "A stuck pig squeals loudest" or "The guilty dog always barks loudest." That is the behavior Obama showed when confronted with the issue. He turned it in to an indignant tirade toward Romney and slammed Romney for making it a "political issue." The facts have revealed that Obama's administration went all out in promoting the cover story that the attack was a spontaneous attack in reaction to the video. It was in fact the Obama administration who made it into a political issue as a political damage control tactic because they knew almost immediately that the attack was indeed a planned, orchestrated terrorist attack and that there had been absolutely no evidence of any demonstration there to spark it.

Obama's reference to the Rose Garden comment regarding calling it a terrorist act was led into by his introductory comments about the USA being a country that embraced freedom of religion and did not agree with the intolerance that caused the video produced, effectively blaming it again on the video. This promotion took place over the next week with Susan Rice on a tour of television appearances and the UN sticking to the untrue cover story. Obama also went on Letterman and continued the misdirection. It was predictable that Hillary would be thrown under the bus as Obama always says he is ultimately responsible but never accepts blame or apologizes...he just projects the blame elsewhere. If you really want to get to the bottom of this issue you need go no further that getting Susan Rice to say where she got the information and/or direction from prior to her little propaganda tour. But that is unlikely because if Obama is reelected Hillary will be out and Susan Rice may very well be our next Secretary of State.

Jack I really think I'd be embarassed too by the way your candidate (and mine until recently) performed last night. A real joke to real decent people (and women too, if it's okay by you and Mitt that we're included)! What happenened in Libya was confusing to all. What Mitt said was REALLY scary and confusing. You actually want him to be president? Please, let us pray...
