In the mean time Islamic Terrorists are burning down Embassies and killing Americans on American soil.
Netanyahu wants a meeting with the Messiah and can’t get one because the
Messiah is too busy campaigning in Las Vegas.
Something smells like sh*t and it sure ain’t Romney.
This is the exact line from Hillary, made on Tuesday
So, Hillary knows as much about this as we do. Great.Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, 'How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate? In a city we helped save from destruction?'
Yes, this is Obama's super team. Best administration ever. Go team.
YouTube is now blocking IP addresses from Libya and Egypt from accessing the offensive anti-Muslim video clip.
I like how the whole non-Muslim world just treats these angry Muslim mobs like they're spoiled children and we're the enabling parents.
"Oh, we can't publish that cartoon or let them see this video, they can't help themselves."

I just read about it all Kevin. Wow. And what a reminder of what real reporting actually is
Read that and get facts not spoon fed Gerber's Mixed Cereal the Administration and its guard media have been serving
Romney saw a moment of supposed political weakness and tried to pounce on it. Hell his own camp even admitted that they weren't going to release the statement accusing the president of being a terrorist sympathizer until 9/12 because they didn't want to be distasteful, but they decided •••• it and released it anyways. Oops.I did read the WSJ's timeline. I like how Romney is "outraged" by Obama's/embassy's response. And then Obama is "outraged" by Romney trying to "politicize" this. Everybody is ••••••• "outraged"!!!!!!!
American politics are stupid. Neither man was outraged. They saw a moment of political weakness from their opponent and tried to jump on it.
What I find amusing about these anti-west protests is that it seems this Anti-Islam film that apparently exists (I have yet to find it, even on .tor) is the most popular film, ever, in Middle East...
I wouldn't be surprised if US intel finds that they coordinated these protests via twitter and facebook, further motivating them to extensively monitor all activities on these sites.
What cracks me up is that there is almost this complete and total denial from the right that the film had anything to do with this.....that this is somehow because Obama isn't doing something to stop it.
We've seen this before with the Dutch cartoonist. It's not like there isn't precedent here.
And all of this talk about repressing free speech blah blah blah. Can we all agree that there are certain aspects of our society that are vile and vulgar? The guy who likes to protest military funerals....can we all agree that his free speech is disgusting? Can we all agree that a video that was designed to outrage Muslims is vile and disgusting? Can we all agree on this while still believing in free speech?
Can we agree that if we believe in free speech, that all of these protesters WHO ARENT throwing rocks and blowing up the embassy are just exercising the same rights that we are so hellbent on protecting as Americans? Isn't that what the Arab Spring was all about in the first place....elimination of the oppressive nature of the dictatorial regimes and replacing it with one who will tolerate/promote free speech?
And if not, I'd like to see what the hawks have to offer in a way of a solution....even a retroactive one, that doesn't fly in the face of the BS they are spewing right now.
And FWIW, the "attacking free speech angle" is dead, at least according to Mittens:
Which is funny because he's now agreeing with the whole premise of the original statement that was put out by the Embassy....you know, the one in which he essentially accused the president of being a terrorist sympathizer.Originally Posted by Mitt Romney
But hey I'll give Mittens this....that quote above is the smartest thing I've ever heard him say.
What press elsewhere finds and reports.
Somehow a spontaneous demonstration doesnt register with me after looking
I suppose a good way to change this stuff is to reward those who are peaceful. Maybe give out free virgins to the rioters that don't throw rocks, burn stuff, or kill people.Protesters in Tunis broke into the U.S. Embassy compound there, set fire to trees and broke windows of embassy buildings, a witness cited by Reuters reports. In Sanaa, Yemen, security forces fired guns in the air to keep protesters from the U.S. Embassy, a day after its compound was broken into and looted.
In Tripoli, Lebanon, demonstrators burned down a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant and an Arby’s and attempted to storm a government building, according to news reports. Soldiers opened fire, killing at least one.
In Khartoum, 5,000 protesters gathered at the German and British embassies and stormed Germany’s, setting it ablaze, Reuters reported. Buses full of protesters were reportedly heading toward the U.S. Embassy, on the outskirts of the city, Al-Jazeera said.
Smaller demonstrations were underway in Indonesia, East Jerusalem, Malaysia and Qatar. And in the Kashmir region of India, at least 15,000 people — mostly Muslims — participated in dozens of protests, burning U.S. and Israeli flags, the AP reported.
We all agree...going to Romney's statement that some stuff is a bad idea.
The youtube deal might be the handy tool for some of the demonstrators but comeon. I think of crap videos like that like I do porn. Dont want to see it? Dont watch. Dont twist the focus to the creators of the stuff.
Like we learn in some organizations: If Im bothered by the actions of others I should ask why Im bothered and focus on my reactions which are the only things I can control.
Some media jumping all over the idiot that made the video should ask themselves why they werent so bothered by "artwork" depicting a urine soaked cross and suddenly find themselves reaching for the Pampers with something offensive to thin skinned muslims.
Like our old friend O used to suggest...Speech and expression is either free or it isnt. Perhaps one day Muslims will discover that most offensive material is delivered by equipment with an on and off switch.
