We also learned that, in those first moments of the attack, a request for military back-up was made by U.S. staff on the ground but was denied by Washington. It had planes and special forces less than 500 miles away in southern Italy — or about the same distance as Washington to Boston. They could have been there in less than two hours. Yet the commander-in-chief declined to give the order. So Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods fought all night against overwhelming odds, and died on a rooftop in a benighted jihadist hellhole while Obama retired early to rest up before his big Vegas campaign stop. “Within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied,” said Ty Woods’s father, Charles. “In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision.”
This is sickening, and it makes me even madder at the clueless followers who still support Obama. I'll say it again - if he's re-elected and you voted for him, the blood of the soldiers this happens to in the future is also on YOUR hands. If you can't see that Barack Obama is unfit to command our soldiers after this, I really can't understand what's wrong with you.

***Obama tells MTV he won't push for gay marriage in second term. Oh...really? You mean...that was just a fundraising gimmick? Nooooo, say it isn't so...
From the comments:
“Let me be clear” at this point any voter who believes anything this man promises is either an idiot or trying to be victimized.
***Absentee ballots going to military in Afghanistan may have been burned in plane crash. Nothing to see here, move along. It's just a coincidence, really!
***Okay, I support Romney and everything, but I think this is going a bit far...
***You gotta watch this - bird poops on TV anchor live!
***Gallup poll predicts "wave election" for GOP. Oh, I hope I hope I hope...
In 2008, 54% of likely voters identified as Democrat or lean Democrat. 42% of likely voters identified as GOP or lean GOP. In other words, the electorate, including independents who lean towards a particular party, was D+12. This year, however, the Democrat advantage has disappeared. 49% of likely voters today identify as GOP or lean GOP. Just 46% of likely voters are or lean towards the Democrats. This is a 15-point swing towards the GOP from 2008 to an outright +3 advantage for the GOP. By comparison, in 2004, when Bush won reelection, the electorate was evenly split, with each party getting support from 48% of likely voters.
If these numbers are within even a few points of what this survey suggests, then Romney will win decisively and the GOP will pick up the Senate. We are likely standing on the edge of another GOP wave election.
