Petraeus Testifies Before Congress And Destroys Republicans Benghazi-Gate Dream

It was said by Republicans that the September 11th attacks in Benghazi were mishandled and then covered up by the Obama administration.

It was said by Republicans that the Obama administration knew ahead of time that the September 11th attacks in Benghazi were imminent and avoidable.

It was said by Republicans that the Obama administration did nothing to stop the September 11th attacks in Benghazi even though they were watching it on video streamed live from a drone.

It was said by Republicans that hearings needed to be held so that we could find out exactly what happened concerning the September 11th attacks in Benghazi.

It was said by Republicans that hearings needed to be held that included General David Petraeus since he had conducted a fact finding mission on the incident concerning the September 11th attacks in Benghazi.

It was said by Republicans that the scandalous extra-marital affair surrounding General David Petraeus that forced him to resign was a plot by Democrats to keep him from testifying at today's hearings on the September 11th attack in Benghazi.

Much to the chagrin of said Republicans General David Petraeus testified at the today's hearings on the September 11th attacks in Benghazi.

Today a congressional staffer that attended the hearings said that General David Petraeus testified that just about everything the Obama administration said and did concerning the September 11th attacks in Benghazi was by the book, above board and that no one, including President Obama, lied about or covered up any facts about the incident at any time.

After attending today's meeting with General David Petraeus about the September 11th attacks in Benghazi Republican members were of course asked to comment about their accusations concerning the Obama administration's mishandling and cover up of the incident.

Republican members who were at todays hearings on the September 11th attacks in Benghazi reply to the inquiries were short and unspecific and when they were done yammering some insipid word salad into the reporters microphone they ran away from the cameras and the questions as quickly as possible.

Watch for yourself here as the chief mouthpiece for the conspiracy theorists Senator John McCain, who in the passing week has savaged the Obama administration about the September 11th attacks in Benghazi, does just that…
 
Here is Rep. Peter King (R-NY), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee saying nothing at all as well…
 
I'm going to go out on a limb concerning the Republicans accusations about the Obama administrations mishandling and subsequent coverup of the September 11th attack in Benghazi and say that by Monday they will have a whole new narrative about it that they took all weekend to cook up.

Don't let us down Republicans!

Republicans Continue To Try To Score Political Points Off The Backs Of American Corpses

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ),  Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-NC), and a handful of other Republicans are still at trying use four murdered Americans for political gains. Egged on by right wing media and a segment of the American population that need to delegitimize President Obama, these misguided, opportunistic rubes continue to push the horror of what happened in Benghazi as a "cover up" or  as being mishandled by the Obama administration.

What Benghazi actually was… A horrible terrorist attack that once set into motion could not have been stopped. There was no rescuing the Americans murdered there. Reports say everyone who died was killed within an hour of the initial attack. The Opportunistic terrorists carried out this attack under the pretense as well as cover of the protests occurring all around the middle east over an anti-Muslim video circulating on the internet.

In spite of this widely acknowledged information Senators McCain and Graham have gone haywire over this idea that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice went on a handful of Sunday news shows just 5 days after the attack and said the violence was borne purely from protests alone. She did not say that and this is untrue. Instead what she actually said was: "People gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. Those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are quite common in post-revolutionary Libya, and that then spun out of control." Rice never said it wasn't terrorism and in addition stated that she was withholding full judgement until all the facts were in.

Given the innocuous nature of her statement I can't imagine what standing McCain and Graham have for proclaiming that they would “do whatever to block the nomination that is within our power.” if President Obama nominated Susan Rice to replace the sitting Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. They continued by saying that Susan Rice was “not qualified”, "misled the public" and that she was guilty of “not being very bright".

Now here is the thing that makes the actions of these two all the more confusing and shameful…

In  2005 George W. Bush was trying to nominate Condoleezza Rice as Secretary Of State. This was during a time when she was under acute scrutiny for her comments during the leading up to the Iraq War where she stated that Saddam Hussein had acquired nuclear weapons. Her exact words were: "The problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly Saddam can acquire nuclear weapons. But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud". Her statements were culled from a set of talking point provided to her by the U.S. intelligence community. Despite the fact that her statements were one of many it was believed that they were made in order to arouse fear in the American public ultimately leading them to accept a full scale war with Iraq. In doing this it posed huge questions about whether Condoleezza Rice was fit to hold the position of Secretary Of State leading Democrats to hold hearings on the matter.

Now who do you think were Condi Rice's biggest defenders during this period. If you said John McCain and Lindsey Graham you would be 100% correct.

Here were McCain's exact words as told to CBS Morning News on January 27, 2005 about the hearings looking into Rice's fitness to be Secretary Of State:
"Condoleezza Rice is a great American success story. This is what America is all about. A young woman who grew up in a segregated part of America where Americans were not treated equally, to rise to the position of secretary of state. We should have been celebrating, I believe, this remarkable American success story.

Also, I thought that some of the remarks — and I’m not going to mention my colleagues’ names — some of the remarks aimed at her during the hearings challenged her integrity. We can disagree on policy and we disagree on a lot of things, but I think it is very clear that Condoleezza Rice is a person of integrity. And yes, I see this, some lingering bitterness over a very tough campaign. I hope it dissipates soon.
“I can only conclude we’re doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness at the outcome of the elections”.
Here were Sen. Lindsey Graham exact statements: “
"Every intelligence agency in the world was misled. And to connect those two to say that she’s a liar is very unfair, over the line.”
They were singing quite a different tune back then wouldn't you say?

I have to say that I am at a complete loss as to what these two Senators are trying to accomplish by pushing their false narrative or more that that what they believed Susan Rice's endgame was even if their faulty assessment was correct. One can only conclude that these attacks are made out of bitterness at loosing the Presidential election in 2012 or worse yet bitterness at loosing the Presidential election in 2008.

In conclusion I need to add one more sorry note to this already twisted Benghazi story. Just today John McCain held a presser in which he continued to hammer away at Susan Rice and complain about the lack of information on the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate. The off-putting thing about this is that to do so he skipped a nearly two-hour classified briefing with administration officials about the investigation. When asked about the missed briefing and his refusal to comment on it McCainn angrily replied "Who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?"

Now we know this is just a shameful attempt to play politics with the terrible tragedy in Benghazi and nothing more.

SECESSION!!!

After a stinging loss in the Presidential election the Republicans of over 40 states (*Update - It's all 50 now) believe they have discovered the remedy for what ails them. The only salve that will sooth their aching wounds is the cool cool balm known as secession!

This group of go getting out of the box "thinkers" have filed secession petitions with the White House website's "We the People" program.

One petition to secede submitted by Jason B. (no last name provided) of Harrogate, Tenn. surpassed the 25,000 signatures and another  petition filed by Mobile resident Derrick B. (no last name provided) has received more than 25,000 signatures.

Wow… that's somethinn…. Zzz zzzzz…. Oh I must have nodded off… where was I… Oh yes, secession!

Here's a list of states where residents have filed secession petitions in the wake of the presidential election: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

New York… Really? You're just being silly now.

There is also this… Counter-petitions to strip citizenship from individuals signing onto petitions to secede and exile them have also been filed with the White House website.

Death Throes Of The Republican Party

The prevailing wisdom among the majority of Americans is that this country is changing. The re-election of Barack Obama is ample proof of that. It is becoming unmistakingly evident that some people are going to go along for the ride and some will bury their collective heads to this unalterable future. It's easy to identify the segment of society that remains in denial to this change. They are the ones who are now yelling the loudest.

They are yelling about rigged polling, entitlement society, gay marriage, contraception, abortions, legitimate rape, forceable rape, pregnancies resulting from rape, socialism, communism, sharia law, muslims, birth certificates, collage records, high school records, Kenya, self deportation, electrified fences, illegals, the black panther party, food stamps, 47%, people who just want stuff, and the ever popular right wing acculturation "I want my America back".

They have names like Sheldon Adelson, the Koch brothers, Ted Nugent, "hot" Karl Rove, Grover Norquist, Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Rupert Murdoch, Sean Hannithy, Bill O'reilly, Ann Coulter, Pat Robertson, Glen Beck and the majority of the punditry on Fox News

These people either ignorantly refuse to or are intellectually incapable of acknowledging the obvious cultural and demographic shift our country is experiencing.

Here are just a few examples of these changing times as borne out by the results of Tuesdays election results.
Barack Obama was re-elected with the widest, clearest win since Ronald Reagan. (So much for Fox news' narrative that Obama's first term fluke of African-American pride and youth enthusiasm).
This country for the first ever has voted for marriage equality at the polls.
Both Maine and Maryland approved marriage equality measures, and a third is leading in Washington.
The amendment to ban same-sex couples from marrying lost in Minnesota.
The first openly gay senator Tammy Baldwin was elected Senator in Wisconsin.
Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize marijuana, forever altering the course of the war on drugs.
The Tea Party is officially dead (even if their shambling corpse is still wander around moaning incoherently).
Obamacare was endorsed by the Americans and will be the law of the land.
• After watching ten years of tax inequality the people of this country voted to reject even more tax cuts to the richest 1 percent while allowing cuts to social programs we all care about to pay for them.
Americans rejected turning Medicare into a voucher program.
 • Instead of self deportation and electrified fences the country opted for inclusion and acceptance.
Finally, the electoral breakdown was the undeniable straw that broke the elephant's back:
I believe that our United States does much better when we have more than one functioning political party. Our forefathers set it up this way so that one political faction would provide checks and balances to the other. The Democrats seem to have happily walked though the door into the 21st century and are, as of Tuesday, thriving. The Republicans on the other hand seem to want to remain in the 1950's. They appear to be circling the drain all the while kicking and screaming like a baby roaming around a soiled diaper with no adult around to change them. If this does not change the GOP will die out just as surely as the old white hateful electorate they claim as their base… and that would be a shame.

"Hot" Karl Rove Suffers An On Air Meltdown When Faced With A Romney Loss

Karl Rove suffered a very public and much deserved televised meltdown when he was smacked in the face by the realization that all his super PAC money couldn't save Mitt Romney's run for President. The fun began when Megahn Kelly and Chris Wallace of Fox News reported that Ohio had gone into President Barack Obama's win column thus re-electing him to a 2nd term. Rove immediately deemed it too early to make such a brash prediction despite the fact that the writing was clearly on the wall. Karl's behavior was perfectly understandable in light of the fact that he spent upwards of 350 million dollars bankrolling Romney in the general election.

Watch Rove lose his shit here…

On a personal note I would like to say to the handful of billionaires that bankrolled Karl Roves super Pacs - American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS… Suck it. You cant buy America. To Karl I say have fun explaining flushing all that money you flushed down the toilet to your 1 percenter donors. I'm sure they will be very receptive to your excuses.

Now It's An Official Landslide

Florida goes to Obama....

The Polls Are Deadlocked And Democrats Are Terrified... Here's Why

I hear political pundits asking why Democrats are so despondent at the prospect of a Mitt Romney presidency. All day I hear the talking heads wondering out loud as to why the progressives are so worried compared to their Republican counterparts.

The reason is easily explained.

It is that we know what's at stake as well as what is to be lost if Mitt Romney becomes President. Republicans have nothing to fear from this scenario because they don't care who Mitt Romney is. He could be a talking Pez dispenser for all they cared. The Republicans have only one desire and that is to see President Obama lose. They salivate for it. They couldn't care less what the consequences of a Romney presidency would mean for the country. Their raison d'etre is hatred for this president. When I go to the polls to cast my vote I am doing it for the sole reason that I believe I am voting for the best candidate for the job of President of the United States. When Republicans cast their vote they are doing it out of hate, spite or at the very best right wing media induced ignorance.

What I believe scares Democrats most about a Republican win on Tuesday is their choice of their candidate. Mitt Romney has shown himself to have no moral compass when it comes to his avarice for power. Mitt Romney has shown that he will do and say absolutely anything in his pursuit of the the presidency. Mitt Romney has shown to be totally without character and devoid of moral courage. Mitt Romney has shown himself to be a man who has no qualms about destroying his fellow Republicans, stepping over their lifeless political careers and smile after having done so. Mitt Romney has shown himself to be a man who has shown an ability to lie with such incredible ease that any casual observer would readily believe that he was a borderline sociopath. Mitt Romney has shown himself to be a man who will spew as many untruths as necessary to achieve the presidency which he believes is rightfully his because he has bought and paid for it.

If you don't believe that the Romney's think they should just be handed the highest office in the land based solely on who they think they are just ask Mitt and Ann Romney like Diane Sawyer did. In an interview she asked what they would tell Barack and Michelle Obama if they were in front of them. Mitt after a second said he would tell the President to "Start packing" whereupon he and Ann began to laugh. When it was Ann turn to answer she simply said she would tell them that “It’s Mitt’s time. It’s our turn now,”.

For anyone who doesn't understand why Democrats are in full freak-out let me explain further. After watching President Barack Obama get us out of the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression… after watching President Barack Obama bring us over 25 consecutive months of job growth… after watching President Barack Obama save a dying auto industry so that it could remain the backbone of this country... after watching President Barack Obama sign into law The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act that guarantees equal pay for Americas working women... after watching President Barack Obama give us health care for upwards of 40 million Americans who otherwise wouldn't have any… after watching President Barack Obama get us out of Iraq… after watching President Barack Obama begin the process of getting us out of Afghanistan… after watching President Barack Obama overturn "don't ask don't tell"… after watching President Barack Obama Kill Osama Bin Laden… after watching President Barack Obama achieve all of these things it is maddening to have the right wing, bat-crap crazy, Republicans twist and delegitimize his life story and presidential record to the point that no one on the right even acknowledges that any of it happened.

Never forget that President Barack Obama achieved all of this despite the fact that his efforts were thwarted at every turn by Republicans who from day one said they wanted nothing more than to make them a one term president…. Republicans who while Barack Obama was taking the oath of office to become President of the United States held up in the Caucus Room, a high-end D.C. establishment, to  figure out what was the best way to destroy a presidency that hadn't even officially begun… Republicans who filibustered every plan that came across their desks… Republicans who ran their election powered by nothing more than corporate/dark money and an irrational unyielding unending undying hatred of this President… Republicans who called him a socialist, a communist, a Muslim, a terrorist, an anti colonialist, an illegitimate president born in Kenya who had no birth certificate, who had no passport, who had no college records, who had no high school record, was "the food stamp President, was a retard, a liar, a fraud… Republicans who through right wing media outlets broadcast lies to elicit false outrage from their low information voters and to keep them cocooned in a hate bubble… Republicans who every day diminish the president all the while while inventing false narratives that bleed into reality from their bizarro world in an alternate universe so much so that regular news organizations picked up their stories as though they were were actually legitimate.

If on November 7 this country is saddled with the President Mitt Romney I guarantee you that many years down the road this will be remembered as the election that was won with billionaires money used to to elicit the hatred of a dying older white electorate that in their death throes amassed enough hatred to unseat a president who had done nothing but good for this country. It will be looked upon as a sham and a farce and shame and an embarrassment. It will go down in history for what it is... The day the presidency was sold to the highest bidder irregardless of the candidate who fronted their party.

Romney Called Out On His Lie That Jeep Will Move All Their Manufacturing To China

In fear that he is losing in the swing state Of Ohio Mitt Romney has decided to drop one more desperate whopper saying that Jeep will be moving all of their manufacturing to China.

Here is a devastating ad put together by President Obama to refute Romney's latest stump speech lie.
What can you say about a man who has so little regard for the truth. It boarders on the sociopathic. What's worse is that he said it in Ohio where people who worked for Chrysler were suddenly panic stricken that they were about to lose their jobs.
