Anyone remember that idiotic liberal slogan, “Bush lied, people died?” That made about as much sense as any other idiotic liberal slogan. The media is ignoring the truth that Obama lied and people really did die.
Who are those who died and what are the lies?
The dead are mostly Mexicans. But there are some Americans. There is Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. There is ATF Agent Jamie Zapata. There is Ambassador Christopher Stevens. There are Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
Then there are 18 young men killed in a massacre at a rehab center in Ciudad Juarez. Then there were 14 teenagers who were killed at a party that was attacked by cartel hit men.
What is the common denominator?
The Obama Regime lied about the “fast and furious” operation. They lied; they stonewalled and then did nothing to mitigate the damage. Fast and furious kicked into high gear in the summer of 2009. Amazingly enough as the Obama Regime allowed large numbers of high powered fire arms to cross the border, cartel violence surged. People died.
Instead of doing the obvious, which was working with the Mexican government to try and recover those weapons before more people died, the Obama Regime stonewalled. They stonewalled the Mexicans and they stonewalled the United States Congress.
The political purpose of “Fast and Furious” was to create a backlash in the United States so the left could push for more draconian gun control laws. Fortunately the Obama Regime was as incompetent in that area as they were in other areas.
In the Middle East, the Obama Regime told us those who were rising up in the so-called Arab Spring were merely “patriots” who wanted a free nation. Turns out they were Al-Qaeda operatives. The Obama Regime not only gave them weapons and money, they went out and recruited fighters for the “Arab spring.”
Remember the famous question from the Watergate era? “What did the President know and when did he know it?”
We already know that the Obama Regime knew early on the attack on our consulate was a terrorist attack. When did Obama know it? Why did he continue to lie to America and the world by blaming the violence on a film no one had heard of?
What else is Obama lying about?
Well the answer to that is obvious. He is lying about everything else. Given his track record, does anyone really believe him when he says he will cut the deficit by $4 trillion? Does anyone really believe him when he says he will grow the economy? He hasn’t done that in three and a half years, so what makes him think he will in four more years? The answer is he does not. He is lying.
The more puzzling aspect is why Mitt Romney is not attacking Obama over this with both barrels. Romney has family in Mexico, which is a connection he is not exploiting with Hispanic voters. Most Hispanic voters with Mexican ancestry should be up in arms about Obama’s ATF fueling violence in Mexico by sending military grade weapons into that nation. Most Americans are outraged those weapons were sent over the border. Most Americans are outraged that those weapons were used to kill at least two United States citizens. Most Americans would be outraged that the Obama Regime would use a program that would kill people as a pretext to try and repeal our Second Amendment rights.
Where is Romney on all of this?
Obama lied. People died.
That’s not just a slogan. It is a cold, hard fact.
Where is the Congress? That is the question you should be asking.
Congress is in recess until after the election. If we win the Senate and White House, we may finally get some answers, but are more likely to face a continued cover-up and destruction of evidence.
They will do nothing. It is either We do it or quit complaining and put our energy to something more productive.
This does, indeed, appear to be the bottom line! As far as Congress is concerned,
if you want something done right, you'd better count on doing it yourself! They did
not do the MOST important thing they should have done, and that was "high treason"
impeachment and trial of BO and a few others. If they had, the Country would not be
in the mess and the danger that it is in!!!
If we would have demanded it, they would have done it. The do not fear us and that is the problem. They know we will not do anything. They may appear to lose this election, but what is Romney going to do to right the wrongs? Nothing is my guess. He will play the game Bush played. I have too much respect for the office to arrest the Clinton's on treason charges.
Debra, Congress has done nothing anyway, It is hard to miss them.
I would really like to know if Romney were to come out strong about Barack's communist ways and trashing the constitution, like we would like him to do, would we see a different election and campaign? Is Romney's ignoring these issues because he and his advisors fear he would loose votes of the undecided and independents? I would really like to know the answers.
Being so cautious when he has so much he could use to his advantage to bring out truth and differences about himself and his opponent that would make a huge difference in the outcome of this country is upsetting and deserves an answer.
Are they scared of something? Is it campaign strategy? Romney's pac did a good job hammering the republican candidates for nomination, why not do the same to an evil communist opponent? Anyone have an idea about this?
Maybe we are being played?
The only topic seems to be the economy. Yes, it is imperitive that it be taken care of now, not leave it lay till the next election, but there are so many other horible things that Romney must bring out in the debates that if not addressed now, our FREEDOMS will be taken from us. Romney must remind Americans that Obama's policies are destroying the foundation of America by degrading the Constitution, not defending Israel, not defending our Boarders, ignoring the murderings of Americans in other countries, weakening our image around the globe, and causing civil unrest. Romney must fight for America and defend what she stands for. The "change" Obama refers to is destructive.
Maybe Romney is trying to throw the election.
These are my questions, too! I'd sure like to see the "fire and spit" that Romney used in the Primaries!
Does anyone know someone on the Romney Team who can tell us what gives?
I have come to believe we are being played. But no one on the Romney team would admit to that.
Clinton had trouble with the inconvenient truth, too. A blast from the past - remember how Clinton responded to the Al Qaeda bombing of two embassies in Africa? They argued over whether it was really Al Qaeda, and whether bin Laden was a real threat - in 1999. http://partners.nytimes.com/library/world/africa/bin-laden-index.html
