Let's see. Who does NATO help and support? Would you have preferred that NATO "help" the dictators? Their support of "the people" makes perfect sense. Did you not see the crowds involved in these revolutions? Do you think, on a whole, people prefer living under the rule of an oppressive dictator?
The problem is there is no evidence at all who any of these "rebels" are or were. NONE. Apparently NATO helps and supports "rebels".

So where exactly is Obama?
Oh. Do you expect him to be on TV telling YOU everything that is being done? I prefer that he be working on this with advisers and other world leaders rather than babysitting the U.S. citizens here at home by going on TV every other minute.

Did Bush rush to fundraising events, campaign stops, entertainment shows right after 9/11???

Obama is absent. He was absent even right after this happened except for a short petty statement. They were warned something was coming, it was the 9/11 anniversary and they did nothing. He did nothing after except to return to his normal campaign routine. He is a joke and a failure. 4 people were killed and we were warned just 48 hours before hand.

Today, the world is in rage, and Obama is no where to be seen. But I am sure he wont miss his campaign event later today.

I expect him to man up and take questions. Not give a statement and run off. I prefer him to explain why no security was raised for 9/11 and why warnings were ignored. How is it, that Romney takes questions, and Obama is absent.

And what happened to his foreign policy victories? A year ago he gave this meaningless speech on how the world has changed due to his actions. Yet here we are now, days after letting our own get murdered, and thousands across the globe are in rage. And guess who's name some of them are shouting, "Osama".

But thank God we have Joe Biden and the BRILLIANT Barack Obama in office.

Are we safer than we were 4 years ago? Nope

Like for sure. Some peasant riots in countries you couldn't care less about have you really scared!

What right wing, elderly, white, male wouldn't be peeing their pants right now?

Obama save us! Scramble Air Force one! Biden you go to an undisclosed location!

It's time for all Americans to come together and defeat this GRAVE threat....lol

Yes, there is evidence. Did you even watch the coverage on TV when the revolution was taking place? Didn't you see the faces of those people? Didn't you see the interviews with them? Didn't you know about the use of social media by the rebels? There is actually lots of evidence out there of who these people were. For one thing, the size of the crowds tell you this wasn't a small group of outside agitators. THE PEOPLE of the countries are the people who have been involved.

Why does it seem unreasonable to you to think that these young people, who are educated, would want something better in life than was available to them with the oppressive government they had? Also why do you think that creating a democracy from the ruins of a dictatorship would be easy and not messy? Why do you think the transition would happen really fast? These things take TIME. We are watching the "growing pains"....yes, real pain. Do we let this happen, or do we rush in militarily and put in place another dictator??

Well he flew off to vegas after all this started yesterday to campaign. I guess he was too busy to worry about the mess he created. Just blame Bush and move on appears to be the plan.

It was Sept 11. We didnt beef up security. How dumb is that and how can that be excused?

48 hour warning and they alerted no one. Inexcusable.

I expect him to be accountable. I expect him to answer questions. Not run and hide and continue his job of campaigning.

More of the same anti-Christian rubbish out of you, with comparisons that are grasping at straws, at best.

How long are you going to keep defending the behaviors of these "protesters" in the Mid East with your deflections and idiotic comparisons to white males, Christians, or the tea party?
