"We Leave Nobody Behind" - OH REALLY MR. PRESIDENT?!?!

Spiking the football, trying to score political points as he is accustomed to, the egomaniacal narcissist who we call our President said to the American Red Cross yesterday that "We (America) leave nobody behind".

Normally, this statement would not be so outrageous if only six weeks ago he did not leave four Americans to die in Benghazi without as much as lifting a finger during the nearly 7-hour ordeal.

What kind of a man (and I use the term loosely in this case) sits in the Whitehouse situation room and literally watches and listens to those he is charged with protecting ask for help three times over a 7-hour period and not lift a finger despite having forces at the ready only an hour away?  What kind of conscience must such a scoundrel have to be so callous?

No, Mr. President, America normally never leaves any of its citizens behind.  That, however, requires leadership.  You never left the campaigning mode after the 2008 election.  You never went in to the governing mode because that actually requires making tough decisions - something you have proven to be incapable of!  For you to make such a statement while your hands are still dripping the blood of Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty - our heroic CIA security personnel who assisted the consulate against orders and gave their lives defending their compound - is no doubt the lowest point of your shameful, scandal ridden presidency.  You are America's shame; one that will leave a stench for a long time no matter what happens in six days.

Obama sure has made some blunders during this campaign. One of them was the "you didn't build that" comment, and now this business with the embassy.

The harder he tries to bury the news, the more interesting it gets. Did you see the bit where Facebook tried to censor it, then eventually gave up and pretended that they never tried to censor it? Hilarious.

After this, you can bet there are going to be a whole lot of guys trying to figure out how to censor the Internet. I bet they envy the great firewall of China. You should be happy though, Obama is still going backwards in the polls, so what are the odds that Ryan/Romney will deliver on their promises?

Tel, what Romney/Ryan will be able to deliver will depend largely on whether the Republicans take over the Senate. Semator Reed is a snake and if he maintains control of the Senate, there will be very few changes happening legislatively.

I just hope that Romney has the stomach to institute change like Obama did - through executive orders and other unilateral actions available at his disposal. I somehow doubt it though, which might open up the door for Hillary in 2016. That would be a disaster as she is just as committed a collectivist as Obama is (and just as incompetent).

Agreed. The battle for Congress is probably more important than the battle for the POTUS.

I'll be interested to see how the Tea Party does, and I expect they will increase their influence.

Correct my if I'm wrong, but since Congress is interleaved (voting every 2 years but only half the seats come up), then in theory if all the Tea Party voters from 2010 push similar candidates in 2012 the result should be that the 2010 -> 2012 swing ends up similar to the 2008 -> 2010 swing in Congress. Presuming none of those voters have changed their minds.

100% of House members get re-elected every two years.
1/3 of Senators run for re-election every 2 years.

I think the Tea Party candidates will do fine. Let's hope they increase their numbers in the Congress.

OK, I get it. So the Tea Party had a big influence on the House in 2010, but in order to fully influence the Senate they must remain true to their values for 6 years running (which is much more difficult than just winning a single election).
