It's just shift of power form have to have-not, but to the few party members only. America Wake! Learn the history, don't be deceived. Socialist's philosophy are same as communist. Coran teaches" If infidels ( Christians and Jews) refuse to be a islam, kill them and deceive them with lies as tactics. If you don't believe me, read Coran-English. Communist and Islams' common tacts: Lies to the enemy!. America Wake up!

four years. By the way, communist always say they share equally? look at the history carefully. Usually poor, radical people deceive people to turn into communist killing educated, riches _( Soviet killed 80million. Chinese killed 90 million), then only the few party members have wealth and power , The rest have no freedom of speech, wealth,religion, but living in dirt poor, worse than before. They never share equally America!.

you will start to see who are more neutral and who are more indoctrinated.
I was shocked how Americans were turned out to be stupid 4 years ago!.I love this nation and from bottom of my heart I wish the best for next four years.

Weight carefully each other. That's what smart people do. If anyone carefully do that, sooner or later they will start to see who is lying and who is truthful or neutral. As an example, CNN, FOX, MSNBC always watch all three and compare how they report about any same incident. Then you will start to see who are more neutral and who are more indoctrinated.

As an Asian American, who lived here for 25 years, never saw this much mainstream media deception going on ganged with obama. Worse, most of the Americans were brainwashed and blinded being victims of division and hatred by him and minorities. No matter what are your beliefs ( gay, abortionist, anti-conservative whatever), can't you see who is bad, flaky person or who is respectable person?
Don't you see that a leader of this great nation should have to have some decent quality as a president?

by the way do you know we can't post in the internet without revealing who we are? where is the freedom? what happened to the constitutional rights for individual privacy?
Several liberal bosses are controlling the whole media opinions, that why every media say the same thing except just few. Do you know mr O systematically hires net bloggers & using Facebook & twitters to control public opinion? Who will open their eyes and wake up before too late?

What is your point Howdy_Doodie? To just attack? If you think so little of their reporting, why did you join their website? Just to attack? Probably.

Are you aware that it has came out that the White House was contacted 3 times telling of the attack on the Consulate and 3 times where told to STAND DOWN. Why wasn't military action started immediately? 7 hour video shows the attack and the killings and 3 times asked to help and 3 times told to STAND DOWN!

pnich45 , where did you get your information from?

Doesn't anyone know that Doherty and Woods were not part of the Embassy security team; they were in Libya for a different reason, looking for surface to air missles that had gone missing after the overthrow of the Libyan government. When they heard the firing from the Consuate, they went running to help, did help and rescued some of the staff, but then were gunned down, RPG's and Mortars, by a group of up to 200 Libyans. Not a protest over some "muslim" video slight, but a September 11 planned

What is your poing pnich45? It doesn't matter what they were there for. It has now come out that the White House was asked 3 times for help as soon as the firing started. 3 times they were told to stand down. Woods disobeyed orders and went in to help. He saved lives. A 7 hour video shows what went on in the Consuate. 3 times they begged for help and 3 times they were told to stand down. What does that tell you about this President?

Holy Moly - who writes your copy? A 5th grader with a 3rd grade education? Where is Iraw? Do they teach punctuation in Texas? Wouldn't an achievement worthy of one of the highest military honors (Navy SEAL) be properly capitalized? Seriously, you're not doing yourselves any favors by trying to report the news and looking like a group of uneducated buffoons. Go back to school, you're an embarrassment even in the world of 'online news'.
