Mitt Romney Says “Fundamental Dishonesty” Over Obamcare Is ‘Rotting it Away” and “Put in Peril” Obama’s Second Term (VIDEO)
Barack Obama, ‘The Lying King’: Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive …
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” over his signature health care program, Obamacare, has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.” Romney went on to say that Barack Obama intentionally mislead the American people on the core elements of Obamacare. Romney went on to say that time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.
“Perhaps the most important lesson the president, I think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the American people the truth. When he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period (VIDEO), he said that time and again, he wasn’t telling the truth. I think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
“… but the key, I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. He could know it by looking at Massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. He could have learned those lessons and told the people the truth, but he didn’t. he told people they could keep their plan. and, you know, it was NBC News that said, look, some 6 million people are going to lose their insurance. that’s not some little number, that’s 6 million American people.”
Last year’s losing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” on the Affordable Care Act has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Romney said Obama’s handling of Obamacare’s promises “has undermined the foundation of his second term – I think it is rotting it away.”
He added that what “has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out, as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years, saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case….”
He said “had the president been truthful and told the American people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket… there would have been such a hue and cry against it, (that) it would not have passed.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is widely considered the front-runner for the Democrat nomination for President in 2016 and many believe the next President of the United States. However, the same could be said to be true in 2008 when from out of no where an unqualified, novice Senator from Illinois defeated her in the primaries. A new WSJ/NBC poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have slipped a bit as 46% view her positively and 33% view her in a negative light. Her positive rating is down 10% from April. As Obama’s poll numbers plummet, Hillary’s appear to be sliding as well.
What difference does it make that I failed on the International stage in Benghazi and four Americans died?
Hillary Clinton’s public image has slumped in recent months, with younger voters, Democrats and independents taking a less enthusiastic view of her, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows.
Overall, 46% registered a positive view of the ex-secretary of state, compared to 33% who expressed a negative opinion. As recently as April, 56% saw Mrs. Clinton in a positive light.
Mrs. Clinton has not yet declared her intentions in the 2016 presidential race, but if she runs she would be the solid front-runner in the Democratic field, public polling has shown.
From The Politico, Hillary Clinton is losing ground with young voters.
The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.
Obviously Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for 2016 as she has the greatest name recognition; however, she does face several obstacles that could be her undoing.
- Because Hillary Clinton has such name recognition and is a known commodity, very few are going to have no opinion or not know they name so she has very little upside in undecided individuals.
- Hillary Clinton is considered part of the “Washington establishment” and by the time 2016 rolls around the American people may be beyond completely fed up with Washington “insiders”.
- After 8 years of Barack Obama and an exasperated America, the voters may just be exhausted of having a Democrat in the White House.
- If Obamacare continues to be the disaster that it is and implodes as the model is pretty much unsustainable the Americans are going to be in no mood for Hillary Healthcare either.
- Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi … when the truth comes out and it will come out, it will be damning for Hillary Clinton. She is going to rue the day she made the comment, “What difference does it make … “ She is going to be savaged in the debates and going to have to answer for Benghazi and why she turned a deaf ear to warnings and requests for more security.
- Obama Fatigue and he may be so unpopular and toxic at that point that it taints her run.
- The outcome of the 2014 elections.
- If the economy continues to stink, pathetic job growth, low employment participation rate, record federal debt and record food stamp participants, America is going to want a change of parties at the top.
- Did we say Benghazi?
- Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016 and is there that young Democrat candidate that we have not even heard of yet that will steal her thunder as Obama did in 2008?
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer Admits Democrats Knew Americans Would Not be Able to Keep Their Current Health Care Plans Under Obamacare … #You Lie
HEY AMERICA … IT WASN’T JUST OBAMA WHO LIED TO YOU, IT WAS THE ENTIRE DEMOCRAT PARTY THAT MISLEAD YOU ON OBAMACARE!!!
From the National Review Online, House Demorat Whip Steny the Hoyer (MD 5th District) admitted that Democrats knew that Americans would lose their current healthcare plans under Obamacare even as President Barack Obama, Democrats and their minions repeatedly gave a quite different message to “We the People”. It was Barack Obama who continually said over and over and over … If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period! Basically, the Democrat party that passed Obamacare on a purely partisan vote and rammed Obamacare down the throats of Americans knew that the tag line and talking points were a complete and total lie. Hot Air has much, much more on the liars.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!”
“No one will take it away, no matter what.”
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer conceded to reporters today that Democrats knew people would not be able to keep their current health care plans under Obamacare and expressed qualified contrition for President Obama’s repeated vows to the contrary.
“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”
Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive. Democrats are in a tough place as they not only must attempt to defend Obama’s promises of being able to keep your insurance under Obamacare, but know being questioned as to whether they knew that Americans would lose their coverage, and when. Democrats are going to have a hell of a time getting out of this one as they have been caught in a lie. Either you admit you lied or you say, I never read the bill I signed that forced this upon the American people, Democrats and Republicans alike. Although Democrat Majority Leader Harry the Reid took a different tack. The true believer Reid said President Obama “didn’t say anything that was wrong. That’s true.” Really?
Johnson’s bill, which will be introduced on Wednesday, could put Democrats in a tough spot. Asked Tuesday to explain the news that millions of Americans were losing their insurance policies, contrary to the president’s promise, Senate Democrats responded with a mixture of denials, evasions, and historical revisionism. Nearly all refused to say if they opposed Johnson’s bill.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire expressed shock that so many Americans are losing their current plans. “We knew that they would need to sign up again, but obviously I don’t think anybody thought people would be kicked off their health insurance plan,” said Shaheen, who refused to say if Americans should be able to keep the plans they had in 2013.
“He didn’t say anything wrong,” Senate majority leader Harry Reid said when asked about Obama’s promise. “That was true.”
According to Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Democrats had only promised that Americans could keep their insurance if it was “good insurance.”
“We said when we passed that, ‘If you had insurance that was good insurance that you wanted to keep it, you could keep it,’” Landrieu said.
She declined to say if she would support a measure to let Americans keep the plans they had in 2013. “I haven’t looked at it specifically,” Landrieu said.
“We can look at that,” said Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. “That’s something we can look at.”
It would appear that Democrats are going to try and pull a Bill Clinton and contort their words to create a new talking point. With Slick Willy, “It all depends on what is, is.” As stated at the Lonely Conservative, the new Democrat talking point will be “You Can Keep Your Plan If It’s ‘Good’ Insurance”. Hmm, how do you think that would have played out in the passage of the bill and the run up to the 2012 presidential election? The comment would have been overshadowed by the follow up question of what is considered a “good” insurance and who decides that? With the millions that have lost their insurance and the millions more that will do so, how do you think that would have changed the election results? I guess we now know why Obama and Democrats lied, eh?
Hold the phone, is it possible that this scandal of lying to the American people is so bad that even the MSM has to catch up and report on the story? It appears that way. The MSM in a face-saving effort to appear to be “fair & balanced” is going after Obama and his administration on this one. Of course they were carrying the water for Obama during his reelection, now they feel the need to have some semblance of credibility.
NBC News Reports … Obama Administration Knew Millions Would Lose Their Health Insurance & Mislead Americans (Barack Obama, The Lying King)
#YOU LIE … Guess who knew you could not keep your health insurance when he promised that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to? What else would you expect from a “Community Agitator”?
NBC News is reporting that the Obama administration knew for years that millions of Americans would not be able to keep their insurance, even if they liked them directly contradicting the promises of Barack Obama before, during and after the passage of the not-so affordable healthcare act. Yes, you read that correctly, shockingly NBC News is breaking this story that Barack Obama knowingly lied to to “We the People”. Over and over and over, Barack Obama stated from 2009 to the 2012 Presidential election that with Obamacare you can keep your insurance if you like it, no one is going to take your insurance away. LIAR!!! As stated at PJ Media, it is bad enough that Obama completely and knowingly misrepresented the truth. However, the real tragedy was that so many Americans bought this con man’s “snake oil” hook, line and sinker. Thanks to the uniformed and easily lied to individuals, the US has to suffer through another term of what might be the most dishonest and non-transparent president, EVER!
“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” – Barack Obama
President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Guess what, this deceitful administration is still lying to the American people with regards to individuals can keep their insurance at White House.gov. As Weasel Zippers opines, Obama may want to update the website. But we all know the difficulties this White House seems to have with web pages.
From Breitbart.com comes the following post on 1.5 million individuals will lose their healthcare coverage and a VIDEO of White House Press Liar Jay Carney attempting to spin and backtrack on Obama’s promise to America that if you liked your health insurance, you can keep it. Obama is in serious trouble on this and so are the Democrats in 2014. When Americans finally figure out that Obama’s promises were out-right lies, he will have an approval rating in the 20′s.
UPDATE I: Hmm, isn’t this interesting … the NBC report slamming the Obama administration that they knew Americans would lose their insurance has gone bye-bye. Looks like NBC got a call to take the story down. The story still exists in the Google search, but as the Gate Way Pundit points out, does to a dead link. Didn’t NBC get the memo after their latest SNL skit this past weekend ripping HHS Sec. and Obamacare that they were no longer to make fun of the imperial president?
UPDATE II: The story is back, I guess NBC is having some “glitchy” issues like Healthcare.gov.

Tavis Smiley: ‘Black People Will Have Lost Ground in Every Single Economic Indicator’ Under Barack Obama
Finally some one in the liberal black community is admitting the truth, Barack Obama has been a nightmare for blacks.
During an interview on Fox News’s ‘Hannity,’ PBS’s Tavis Smiley said the following, “The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category” There you have it, blacks who voted for Obama 95% in 2008 and 93% in 2012, have been sold a bill of goods and received nothing for their vote but food stamps. So why would African-Americans have voted in such large numbers for a president who has failed them incredibly? Could it possibly be that the liberal MSM and black leaders have refused to tell them the truth that Obama has been their worst nightmare? What would the liberal media be reporting if blacks had lost ground in every single economic indicator, if the president was white?
From News Busters:
SEAN HANNITY, HOST: My last question to you. You often do these seminars with the state of black America. I’ve watched them on C-Span and different channels, right?
TAVIS SMILEY: Right.
HANNITY: Are black Americans better off five years into the Obama presidency?
SMILEY: Let me answer your question very forthrightly. No, they are not. The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category. On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible.
But here’s the other side. I respect the president. I will protect the president. And I will correct the president. He’s right on this government shutdown. Republicans are thwarting the rule of law with the Constitution. If they let this debt go into default, they’re trampling again on the Constitution.
When will minorities ever wake up, but that’s right, it’s all Republicans fault.
Good Riddance …
First the Hollywood Reporter reported that CNN Films would not continue with its upcoming documentary on Hillary Clinton after Academy Award-winning director Charles H. Ferguson chose not to move forward with the project. It would appear that no one was interested in helping make the film, Republicans or Democrats. What, no Hillary infomercial before the election? I guess the media is going to have to find other ways to aid Hillary in 2016.
Can’t you all see the uncanny resemblance between Hillary Clinton and Diane Lane?
Ferguson said he struggled to find sources and interview subjects for the project, as both supporters and opponents of Clinton were unwilling to cooperate, he wrote in a Huffington Post column.
“When I approached people for interviews, I discovered that nobody, and I mean nobody, was interested in helping me make this film. Not Democrats, not Republicans — and certainly nobody who works with the Clintons, wants access to the Clintons, or dreams of a position in a Hillary Clinton administration. Not even journalists who want access, which can easily be taken away,” Ferguson wrote. “I even sensed potential difficulty in licensing archival footage from [Pat Robertson's] CBN and from Fox. After approaching well over a hundred people, only two persons who had ever dealt with Mrs. Clinton would agree to an on-camera interview, and I suspected that even they would back out.”
Ferguson said he became aware, through his work on the film, that both the Republican and Democratic parties didn’t want the film made.
But wait, there is more … Now the Hollywood Reporter is stating that NBC has pulled the plug on the Hillary Clinton miniseries. After NBC and CNN announced in July that they were planning on developing a mini-series and movie on Hillary Clinton, the Republican National Committee promised a backlash and voted to boycott NBC and CNN during the presidential primaries in 2016 if the networks refused to cancel the projects.
NBC has scrapped its controversial Hillary Clinton miniseries project. Hmm, what a coincidence, both movie projects are scraped on the same day.
“After reviewing and prioritizing our slate of movie/miniseries development, we’ve decided that we will no longer continue developing the Hillary Clinton miniseries,” the network said in a statement Monday.
Sources told THR that NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke was not pressuring Greenblatt to drop the mini, but many within the company believed the project would never happen. Fox Television Studios declined to produce the mini, ostensibly for financial and not political reasons. Other studios passed on the project, including NBCUniversal’s own Universal Television. An NBCU source told THR that Burke was aware of the project before Greenblatt announced it, but sources with ties to the network believe Greenblatt did not seek Burke’s blessing or flag the deal before announcing it.
Could not have said it any better than Hot Air does.
The funniest part of CNN and NBC bailing out of these Hillary infomercials is that the RNC is trying to take credit for it. If you read Ed’s post this morning, you know the real reason — Clintonworld froze out the documentary director because they’re fanatic about controlling Hillary’s image, especially before another presidential run. In fact, rumors started swirling weeks ago about NBC possibly canceling the miniseries for that same reason, because they feared reprisals from Bill and Hillary if they went forward which could be “unhelpful” to their corporate interests if she ended up winning in 2016.
Pew Research Poll, The Failure of Barack Obama to Black America: Only 26% Say the Situation of Black People in US is Better Now Than It was 5 Years Ago
Barack Obama – The Phony President: Wasn’t Barack Obama supposed to be the answer for Blacks Americans … not even close, he is not the one they were waiting for.
Wasn’t everything supposed to change for blacks in America when Barack Obama was elected in 2008? Obama was supposed to part the seas, “The One” was supposed to help blacks because they helped him get elected. They were no loner going to have to worry about paying for their “gas and mortgage” (VIDEO) because their Savior, the Obamamessiah was President. So after having elected the first black president, how is it that only 26% of black America think that their situation is better today than it was five years ago before “The One” was elected? That is correct, according to a PEW Research poll, only 26% of blacks say that their situation is better today than before Obama was elected. That is down from 39% in 2009 when they fell for the “Hope & Change” nonsense, hook, line and sinker.
Just the other day it was reported that under Obama, only the top 5% have benefited. The remaining 95% have not and are still feeling the effects of a recession. Where do you think a majority of minorities fall in the 5%-95% range?
The sense of progress black Americans felt in 2009, on the heels of Barack Obama’s historic election as president, seems to have reversed itself. Today, only about one-in-four (26%) say the situation of black people in this country is better now than it was five years ago, down sharply from 39% who said this in 2009. Nearly as many (21%) say the situation of black people is worse today, and 51% say it’s about the same.
The positive feelings registered in 2009 among blacks represented one of the peaks in this long-term trend. Even in the face of the Great Recession, blacks seemed buoyed by the promise of an Obama presidency. This poll does not provide evidence as to what caused the downward shift in opinions about black progress. However, the fading glow of Obama’s first term and the lingering effects of the recession are likely to have been important factors. [...]
In the most recent Pew Research survey, the share of both whites and blacks who see short-term progress for black Americans is down significantly from the 2009 levels. For whites, the current share (35%) saying the situation of African Americans is better than it was five years ago is similar to what it was in 2007 and lower than it had been in the mid-1980s and 1990s. For blacks, the share saying blacks are better off today (26%) has returned to roughly where it was prior to Obama’s election.
Barack Obama was not the one they had been waiting for, far from it. Obama has made promises and delivered on nothing except maybe make minorities even more dependent on government. If a white president was in office under these circumstances there would be marches in the streets and cries of discrimination. Seriously folks, how did Obama get reelected and why? If blacks think they are worse off than they were before his election in 2008, why would blacks have voted for Obama at a rate of +90%?
We are the One’s we have been waiting for … Not even Close
What is truly amazing is that under a black president just how bad the perception is among blacks that their situation is terrible. Let’s face it Obama has been a total failure for blacks in America. Black unemployment is high, teen blacks unemployment is through the roof, and food stamps are given out like candy. Black unemployment under Obama is now once again double that of whites. Blacks have not made strides under Obama, they have regressed. Obama has done nothing economically for them, because he has done nothing for America.
Black adults are much more likely than whites to say the average black person is worse off financially than the average white person (59% vs. 39%). Whites, meanwhile, are more likely than blacks to say the average black person is about as well off as the average white person (43% vs. 27%).
Barack Obama Asks Supreme Court To Allow Warrantless Cellphone Searches … The Hell with the 4th Amendment
Isn’t this special, Barack Obama asks the US Supreme Court to allow warrantless cellphone searches. So much for the US Constitution and the 4th Amendment under this imperial president. Jammie Wearing Fool asks, remember when they said if we voted for Mitt Romney our freedom and liberties would be further eroded? It appears that they were correct in an convoluted Saul Alinsky kind of way.
From the WAPO:
If the police arrest you, do they need a warrant to rifle through your cellphone? Courts have been split on the question. Last week the Obama administration asked the Supreme Court to resolve the issue and rule that the Fourth Amendment allows warrantless cellphone searches.
In 2007, the police arrested a Massachusetts man who appeared to be selling crack cocaine from his car. The cops seized his cellphone and noticed that it was receiving calls from “My House.” They opened the phone to determine the number for “My House.” That led them to the man’s home, where the police found drugs, cash and guns.
The defendant was convicted, but on appeal he argued that accessing the information on his cellphone without a warrant violated his Fourth Amendment rights. Earlier this year, the First Circuit Court of Appeals accepted the man’s argument, ruling that the police should have gotten a warrant before accessing any information on the man’s phone.
The Obama Administration disagrees. In a petition filed earlier this month asking the Supreme Court to hear the case, the government argues that the First Circuit’s ruling conflicts with the rulings of several other appeals courts, as well as with earlier Supreme Court cases. Those earlier cases have given the police broad discretion to search possessions on the person of an arrested suspect, including notebooks, calendars and pagers. The government contends that a cellphone is no different than any other object a suspect might be carrying.
As Weasel Zippers opines, He’s just lucky his name isn’t George W. Bush.
WOW … Attorney Joe DiGenova for Whistleblower Says … 400 Missiles Stolen in Benghazi & “In Hands of Some Very Ugly People”
BENGHAZI-GATE: It’s all beginning to make sense why Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton wanted Benghazi to go away …
During an interview Monday with WMAL’s Mornings On The Mall, Benghazi whistleblower attorney Joe DiGenova, who represents Mark Thompson, told WMAL he’s been told that some “very ugly people” had stolen the missiles, and that the Benghazi annex played a key role in the theft. The below is a must listen audio from Joe DiGenova that connects the dots as to why the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton’s State department did what they did following the terror attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead. It was never really about the Consulate for the terrorists, it was about the CIA annex. Ever wonder why the there was a delay of the FBI going to Benghazi to investigate the terrorist crime scene? Think the CIA wanted the FBI looking around and finding shoulder surface to air missiles right before a presidential election? What happens when these weapons are used against American targets? Weasel Zippers opines, DiGenova “also notes that the President mentioned the sealed indictment to make it appear as though he was doing something, but violated a court order to reveal the sealed indictment.” I thought Obama was going to go after “leakers”? Except, when it is him.
Make no mistake about it America, Benghazi-gate is far worse than Watergate ever was. 4 AMERICANS DIED!!! But we have an obstruction administration and a complicit liberal MSM covering for their hero, Barack Obama.
On August 12, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.’s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were “diverted to Libya” and ended up being stolen and falling into “the hands of some very ugly people.”
DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles.”
He claimed his information “comes from a former intelligence official who stayed in constant contact with people in the special ops and intelligence community.” He said the biggest concern right now is finding those missiles before they can be put to use. “They are worried, specifically according to these sources, about an attempt to shoot down an airliner,” he claimed.
Gee Hillary Clinton, are you still asking “what difference does it make?”
Decimated Al-Qaeda? Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss … “the Threats are Very Reminiscent of What We saw Pre-9/11.” … “the Most Serious … I’ve Seen in a Number of Years.”
My what a difference an Obama presidential reelection year makes … Wasn’t Al-Qaeda decimated? … At least this time Obama did not blame Embassy closings on a video tape.
As reported by FOX News, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on the Sunday talk show ‘Meet the Press’ that that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11″ and the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
The US State Department has now extended the closings of Embassies across the Middle East and North Africa, , as the terror threat across the region remained high through the final days of Ramadan. So how is it that a decimated Al-Qaeda caused the United States to shut down embassies and go on high alert?
Capitol Hill lawmakers, including top-ranking members of intelligence committees, on Sunday described the terror threat that closed 22 U.S. embassies and consulates across the Muslim region as the most serious one since before the 9/11 attacks and related to specific act or plot.
If I had plans to travel to certain places in the Middle East, I would probably go ahead and cancel them,” he said.
Rooney’s comments followed Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, telling NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11.”
He also described the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
But wait … Didn’t the Obamamessiah tell us during the 2012 Presidential campaign at stump speech after stump speech that Al-Qaeda was decimated and on the run? Barack Obama tried to portray us as some savior of America and that he had defeated Al-Qaeda. But of course with the Lying King, it was all rhetoric and misrepresentations as to what was really going on in the Middle East and terrorism. Obama told us that Al-Qaeda was on the path to death and yet then Benghazi happened. Obama boasted that Al-Qaeda was on the path to defeat and on the run, yet by the looks of the two dozen US Embassies and Consulates closed, nothing could be further from the truth. Barack Obama, the “Campaigner” in Chief would do and say anything to get reelected no matter what. He knows nothing about leadership, it was about being reelected.
Can we just come out and say the obvious … HE LIED!!!
