On Fox News Sunday, did Dick Durbin just compare the death of four Americans in Benghazi at the hands of terrorists to a football game? 21 Oct 12

Did Senator Durbin equate the deaths of four Americans in Libya with a football game? Is he that morally bankrupt? It seems so.

Durbin: "It is always easier the day after 2 say u cd have won that football game." #Libya #GOP #Senate

Morally bankrupt no longer covers it.....Durbin et.al have moved on to fraud.

Dick is not optimal, I must agree with you. I think Dick is a bump in the road.

Durbin probably was a corpseman in the Army.

Workplace violence. Trickle down TREASON. Sooner or later government officials, rather than soldiers and innocent civilians, get killed.

What’s all the fuss about? /sarcasm

Feeling pretty good about Romney’s win this morning, gave me some nerve to actually watch the various SM programs, so I surfed. I now know all is lost, Obama had a small bump in first debate, won the second, and will win third because foreign policy is his strength. Also learned Obama is leading in the polls........I was foolish to think I was strong enough to go into the world of MSM.

Here’s the actual Obama admin error, and it’s not an error of ignoring intelleigence reports.

The early response of the administration was not based on intelligence, either intelligence they had or intelligence they could have waited for.

The early response of the administration was based on their ideology governing their whole Middle East policy; they did not wait for intelligence; all they needed and all they had to support was the myth, the pretense, delivered up for them from “the Arab street”, setting the issue as the anti-Islam video - case closed, as far as what Obama and Rice needed.

The orginal error is not one of national security intelligence, it is ideological, in that Obama accepts the root of all evil in the Middle East is the big bad bully the United States. It’s a lie, but it’s a lie that fits with myths taught to Middle East societies that helps produce the opinions of “the Arab street”; and it’s a lie that is in sync with Obama starting his whole reset of American Middle East policy as one of apologies for U.S. sins.

That is the error - the error is Obama and how he thinks. The idea that the cause of the Bengazi attack was the anti-Islam video simply fit with how Obama thinks; he saw no need to ask Rice or Clinton or anyone else to hold judgement until a more complete intelligence fix was placed around the incident.

If it happened on Bush’s watch, he would have compared it to the Rape of Nanking and The Holocaust.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic "Perfect timing! Between Durbin and Hitlery, I should have enough bodies under the bus to cover my ass! And if that doesn't work, I'll have CAIR script some more incoherent stupidities for Biden to say."
