    Liberal Logic – Susan Rice and Syria Edition 

    So the administration is on a full court press right now trying to change hearts and minds about Syria.  So, in thier infinite wisdom they have decided to send none other than Susan Rice out to do it.  You remember Susan Rice don’t you? The woman who went on five different Sunday talk shows to discuss how Benghazi and the death of four Americans at an oupost there was due to YouTube video, even after they knew full well it was a terrorist attack.

    You can’t make this stuff up.  Truly.

    Oh, The Ties that Bind. Why I.R.S., The AP Records, and Benghazi Matters to All Americans 

    The Obama administration is in the middle of three “scandals”.  The fact the media is finally on board with them all is great start.  Of course this is years too late, but I will say welcome aboard.

    The I.R.S. is the most important, to me anyway.  Others will have another view of it.  But to find out that one of the most powerful government agencies was specifically targeting people based on political affiliation is nothing short of Nixonian and completely unacceptable.  This shouldn’t matter what side of the political aisle you are on.  If this is allowed to happen, it won’t take long for them to come gunning for an organization that you are fond of.  It doesn’t matter that these groups happened to be conservative.  All that matters is that a government agency that has the power to put you in jail was targeting individual Americans as well as non-profit groups.  There is no way to say at this moment if President Obama is involved.  I, of course, wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he were, but so far at this point the evidence of that isn’t out there.  Yet.

    But we do see is a pattern of behavior with this administration.  Of course people like me have been saying this for years, but at least the media is seeing it for themselves.  President Obama doesn’t like anything that doesn’t fit his narrative.  If he doesn’t like, he thinks he can just ignore it and somehow the rest of us won’t figure it out.

    Baghdad Bob Jim Carney is reaching epic proportions of comedy with his denials that the White House had a hand in the changing the talking points of the terrorist attacks on Benghazi.  I mean seriously, it was the anniversary of 9/11, did anyone in this country not automatically think terrorism the moment they heard about the attacks?  al Qaeda is well-known for liking anniversaries and dates that have meaning for their attacks.  That is isn’t a talking point, it is just a statement of fact.  Anyone that is paying attention, even a little, has seen the original C.I.A. talking points and what the statement became after all the fingers got into that pie.  Some of those fingers came from The White House.  Denying it only makes them look silly.  But denying they are.

    The AP dustup is very interesting considering that President Obama and AG Holder both have been talking about changing the laws regarding the rules that the government has when it comes to national security leaks and the press.  Yet, four years later nothing has been done.  The real scary part of this incident is that people who have information that the American people should be aware of they will be afraid to come forward.  That doesn’t bode well for future generations.

    The ties to all of these stories comes down to how stupid this administration is.  This is by their own admission.  Apparently, according to Obama, the daily presidential briefing never said the word terrorism, even though we now know that the C.I.A. said about the final version that they didn’t see point of the talking points since all words of terrorism were removed.  President Obama didn’t know about the I.R.S. scandal until the news reports.  Both he and his spokesperson has said this.  The report was given to them two weeks ago.  The same story about the AP scandal.  What type of management is being used in this White House?  Who exactly is making these decisions not to bring this to the attention of the president?  Shouldn’t that person be held responsible for making the president look so inept?  Now, I personally feel that president is inept, but for those that are his “fans” it must be very disappointing indeed.

    But the biggest problem with all of these scandals what is really going to happen is the loss of trust in the government.  It isn’t like the trust was all that great to start with.  Matter of fact, it is very, very, low.  Those numbers are just going to go lower.  While this may in the end, help the politico class, because fewer people are going to pay attention.  They may end up staying in office because only the truly partisan will show up to vote in 14.  Which of course means that the problems will only get worse.

    I do wonder if President Obama would like to change his words during OSU’s graduation speech:

    Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems; some of these same voices also doing their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

    We have never been a people who place all of our faith in government to solve our problems; we shouldn’t want to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it’s not about what America can do for us; it’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. (Applause.) And, Class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process

    Yes some of those voices talking of tyranny are The Tea Party.  Turns out they were right.

      There’s at least 3 potential scandals on Teh One right now, hopefully ONE will stick. I am sickened by what the little emperor has done, and has allowed done, to America. He has done nothing but divide and conquer since he was sworn in

    Quote of the Day – Susan Rice Edition 

    Today, Acting CIA Director Michael Morell and I met with Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte to discuss my September 16th public comments regarding the attack against the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, and the intelligence assessments that formed the basis for those comments. I appreciated the opportunity to discuss these issues directly and constructively with them.

    In the course of the meeting, we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community, and the initial assessment upon which they were based, were incorrect in a key respect: there was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi.

    While, we certainly wish that we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. We stressed that neither I nor anyone else in the Administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process, and the Administration updated Congress and the American people as our assessments evolved.

    The Administration remains committed to working closely with Congress as we thoroughly investigate the terrorist attack in Benghazi and bring to justice the terrorists responsible for the tragic deaths of our colleagues, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. We also look forward to the findings of the Accountability Review Board and the FBI investigation.

    Really?  The CIA knew it was a terrorist attack immediately.   The talking points were changed, someone absolutely intended to deceive the American people.  The question is who and why.

      Rice was chosen to tell this story because she was in a position of knowing nothing about the Benghazi attacks. She was given BS info as the truth, so she relayed that false info believing it to be true. Technically then, she did not lie ….. at first. She served the admin. well …… at first.

      Fascinating isn`t it that a person in her position could remain so well insulated from the truth for so long. Oh yeah, she`d make a great SoS !

        I am happy to finally hear someone else say that. I don’t believe she purposely lied when she spoke. She is the fall guy. I am not willing to call her a liar because the proof of that just isn’t there. She should have checked into the matter more carefully, but that doesn’t make her a liar. Just incompetent. Oops, my racism and sexism is showing.

    Sadly, These People Vote – Obama Supporters Unaware of Benghazi Attacks 

    I am hoping the just edited out the ones who did know.  Please let there be more than one that knows about it.  As I said, I realize that we can’t test people before allowing them to vote, but the amount of ignorance in this country is stunning.

      Jimmy Kimmel`s skit, “Sign our petition to Stop Women`s Suffrage” would go over quite well with this bunch !
      Couldn`t find a link THAT one, but here`s another – same thing. They fall for it !
