Newt Gingrich Bulldozes Democratic Libya Spin on CBS
News Busters ^ | October 12, 2012 | Matt Hadro

Posted on 10/12/2012 10:19:11 AM PDT by Snuph

Video at link... While CBS This Morning asked only one tough question on the Obama administration and Libya on Friday, guest Newt Gingrich came out swinging and dismantled Democratic guest Jennifer Granholm's defense of the administration. CBS has at times been friendly to the administration over the fiasco.

"I think with regard to the debate and the election, I don't think people are going to be voting on Benghazi. I think they are going to be voting on who do you trust," Granholm ridiculously argued. "You want to talk about trust? Having an American ambassador and three other Americans killed while the President lies to you is a pretty big question," Gingrich shot back. ...

"Biden on Benghazi was so wrong last night, it's going to haunt them from now until the next debate," Gingrich declared.

Newt has his faults, but the dims are unarmed when it comes to matching wits with him!

When Benghazi was mentioned, I wish Ryan had had pointed out that "0bama didn't care enough to even postpone his campaign fund raising"!

Haha. Gingrich is great. Both he and Herman Cain should run for something else now the primaries are over.

Intelligence failure?

Why is it that, I, simple me, knew the truth - weeks - before the President’s Office, the State Department, and the Pentagon?

There was certainly an intelligence failure you stupid talking head news Lady.

Now, we have 2 options:

1. They knew and lied.
2. They are weapon’s grade stupid.

Neither option allows for any “trust.” Neither option allows for someone that should be in office...

If they did not know they are incompetent.
If the did now they are liars.
So Obama / Biden which one is it or is it both?

What are Newt’s faults? A 30 sec spot with Nancy Pelosi and two failed marriages? Gingrich knows more about politics, conservatism, diplomacy and American history than anyone on the political scene at this time. You can put Romney, Ryan, Obama and Biden on the stage and Newt would win the debate, against all four. At a minimum, he should be Romneys press secretary, not appointing him would be like throwing away a national treasure.

Eric Nordstrom, when telling how he was REFUSED security there, actually said he felt like "the Taliban was in the building"!!

Did he mean the State Dept, Hillary and HUMA....the White House, Hussein Obama, the Pentagon....WHO DID HE MEAN!!

PLUS, they asked Charlene Lamb if she made that decision because of budget restraints and she said "NO"!!

HELLO REPORTERS!!!! She said NO.

The Administration put a drone over the site to watch the murders, but they didn’t put an F-16 over the site to prevent the murders.

Very good point.
Perhaps this is why we have only one choice in this election: Obamney -- Our hearts, as a nation, are evil and hardened that way.

To: Uncle Miltie; All

WOW! I heard Lamb say she was watching the attack - LIVE - but I thought it was from on-site cameras at the consulate .. not a drone.

And if they had time to launch a drone .. what amount of advance knowledge did they have that the attack was going to take place ..???

And .. if they knew it was going to take place .. why would they just watch and not do anything to save our Ambassador and his staff member ..??? Plus the two Seals who tried to come to the rescue of the Ambassador - but were caught in the melee. To watch and do nothing was CRIMINAL.

For me .. I still can’t shake the idea that it was the Obama/Biden stooges who planned and executed the making of the “video”, with the objective of having a ready-made excuse for the terrorist attack the stooges already knew was coming. I’m even going to go so far as to say I believe it may have been a Jarrett/Axelrod operation .. in order to make Obama look unconnected with the attack .. unconnected to another “terrorist attack” upon America on a 9/11.

My premise is reached because immediately both Obama and Hillary made this statement, “...We had nothing to do with this video”. Hmmmmm ..?? Both of them said it continually, even spending $70,000 to produce a commercial to espouse the idea “we had nothing to do with the ‘video’”. Geeeee .. is somebody protesting too much ..??

Also, as soon as the “film maker” was arrested - I was even more convinced of the admin’s involvement .. because I questioned .. was this action a way to hide the guy from the media ..?? And/or, to keep the film maker from exposing the fact the “video” was a ruse from the get-go!!

One of the things I would mention is that Obama attended about 25% of his intelligence briefings. Maybe if Obama missed a game or two of golf and attended the briefings he would know what is going on!

"In addition to the footage from the consulate cameras, the U.S. government is also poring over video taken from an overhead U.S. surveillance drone that arrived for the final hour of the night battle at the consulate compound and nearby annex."

AGREED!!! And then some. Romney is now our man like it or not but he is like the dog that caught the car burt doesn’t know what to do with it now.

Gingrich is the man who knew why he wanted the car and knows what to do with it when he gets it. What he did as speaker had mistakes. He knew it and we paid for them then we stupidly threw the investment away.

No one does. I couldn’t help but wonder what Newt would have done if faced in a debate with an unhinged, foaming at the mouth opponent. I think Newt would have had a hard time not appearing condescending towards the chosen boy king. But Newt’s brand of confrontation would have been perfectly suited to turning ol’ BiteMe into a melted puddle of jello, along with the disgraceful moderator just for good measure. He could have had it done in 10 minutes, then spent the next 80 minutes articulating conservative principles.

Yes we do. Those of us who haven't had or perfomed an abortion, aren't gay this or gay that, "pay our fair share" and aren't self-loathing finger pointing ninnys absolutely do.

Honestly, there's no advantage for the administration to mislead the American people on something that is a tragedy like this.

That's all they have?

Of course there is an advantage for the administration if they can mislead the American people. They are blameless if they can divert attention away from their failed policies and security of the embassy and then blame it on an B grade third party video.

Who do you trust? Who can you NOT trust?

They character-assassinated Newt and created a monster. Newt now doesn’t have to worry about whether they like him or not... they don’t. He is subsequently free to speak his mind and be politically incorrect.

Hey, I was one of his constituents when he was Speaker and I still have my "Friend of Newt" sticker. He is one of the brightest political minds around, but he does have a penchant for "stepping in it and tracking it in on the rug" at the worst possible time. With that said, he is probably too controversial to be in a cabinet, besides as a Washington lobbyist/consultant at a think tank he makes a ton more money, so I doubt he would be interested.

Do you think he was trying to tell us something? I believe the entire video and Cairo protest was a false flag cover for what they KNEW was going to be an attack that night. The subsequent protests were cover.

No, I do not.

Mat 7
15 `But, take heed of the false prophets, who come unto you in sheep's clothing, and inwardly are ravening wolves.
16 From their fruits ye shall know them; do [men] gather from thorns grapes? or from thistles figs?
17 so every good tree doth yield good fruits, but the bad tree doth yield evil fruits.
18 A good tree is not able to yield evil fruits, nor a bad tree to yield good fruits.
19 Every tree not yielding good fruit is cut down and is cast to fire:
20 therefore from their fruits ye shall know them.

Jesus himself said to look at the fruits; and indeed Romney's fruit is like Obama's, that is they are the same kinds of fruit.

Ah, so then the absence of action is a good thing?

James 2:20,26
20 And dost thou wish to know, O vain man, that the faith apart from the works is dead?
26 for as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also the faith apart from the works is dead.
If you really believed that abortion was murder would you not try to stop would-be mothers from aborting? Would you not plead with them, offering to take the baby? Or drive abortionists away?

No, we do not do such things because we, you and I, either do not really believe it is evil and/or have a warped perception of evil.
