Mitt Romney was correct, Obama and Candy Crowley were lying during the 2nd Presidential debate. How convenient that Crowley had a transcript in front of her. It is almost as if she was given the transcript to use, just in case there was a question and the Doofus needed some help.
A few points to consider here:
1. Obama is obfuscating. He is spinning his wheels to the point that they are not moving at all. He is not gaining traction. The Benghazi incident is sinking him. More and more information is coming to light about the real security situation in Benghazi.
The latest piece that I have read on the subject is a news story concerning an interview with 2 of the Libyans who had been hired to help with security at the consulate. These are very honest and forthright individuals. They agree that there were some within their ranks who have Islamist leanings. That is not the real issue here but what is the real issue is the fact that they had no heavy weapons to help in a situation of a heavy armed attack.
You can read their story here. It is from the LA Times!! Basically, what they are saying is that they were provided with very little in the way of training, although the American security did give them training that was useful for a situation that would be a lot lighter. They had no heavy weapons, and they were not given any equipment to protect themselves. From what I can understand, they did well to make it to the roof and to survive the attack.
2. The terrorism attack at Benghazi has not been politicized by Republicans. It already was political. The attack itself is a political statement. Yet Obama wants to sweep it under the carpet. The reaction and the spinning from the White House is a foolish mistake.
Moving on to some of the other issues, I think it is time that Obama stopped blaming George Bush. The US economy was not in such a bad state when Obama took over. In fact the stimulus was not necessary. There was a blip, and if left alone it would have been self-correcting. Obama seized the opportunity to do things like interfering in the General Motors and Chrysler bankruptcies. He then played favourites, ripped off millions from the bondholders and gave everything to his union cronies. I hope that the teachers’ union that had its super funds ripped apart will remember who did the damage.
The real lie happens to be the one about Romney supposedly wanting to send Detroit bankrupt. It already is bankrupt because of corruption.
4. The behaviour of Obama continues to be weird. During debate one he stood there and closed his eyes. His body language was really terrible. I do not think that there was much improvement in body language, at least not from the pictures that I have seen. He spent his time glowering. It was not in the slightest bit Presidential to behave in such a fashion.
Mitt Romney made many good points, and I do think that he has a firmer grasp of the economy. With Paul Ryan he has a big task ahead in that he must attempt to save a sinking ship. It is not going to be an easy task. There is one area where he might be naive, but I am open minded on the subject and that area relates to trade and China.
