    Rush: Obama policy 'full-fledged disaster'

    'What they're trying to do is make all of this about Romney'

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio giant Rush Limbaugh calls the violence against American embassies and consulates in the Mideast an “absolute disaster” on the part of President Obama’s foreign policy, and says the White House is coordinating with the news media to make Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney look bad.
    “We’re in the midst of a disaster,” Limbaugh said this afternoon. “This is a full-fledged foreign policy disaster.”

    “What they’re trying to do is make all of this about Romney. We’re in the midst of a genuine second term of Jimmy Carter, anybody? 1979, anybody? We’re in the middle of an absolute disaster, a foreign policy disaster. And there’s a coordinated effort to make it about Romney and whether or not he should speak; whether he should say anything about it; whether or not it’s presidential for Romney. We’re only supposed to have one president at times like this. Well, we don’t have one, unless Romney speaks up, and that’s the sad reality.”

    Before its walls were breached, the U.S. Embassy in Cairo had issued the following statement on Sept. 11:
    “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

    Obama issued a statement on the attack in Benghazi, Libya, this morning saying: “I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.”

    Last night, when only the death of one American was known, Romney said, “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi.”
    “It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

    Romney stood behind the remarks Wednesday even though the initial statement from the Cairo embassy was issued before security was breached.
    Limbaugh ripped into Obama’s silence on the matter until mid-morning Wednesday, and the media’s spin on Romney’s remarks, saying, “Obama doesn’t say anything about it until about 11 o’clock Eastern time this morning. And the media is totally obsessed with what Romney’s doing, and how Romney is wrong and Romney jumped the gun. They say, ‘There’s only one president, and Romney isn’t it.’

    He continued: “Folks, I remember the campaign of 1980. I remember Ronald Reagan hitting Jimmy Carter, who was the sitting president, every day for his incompetence involving the Iranian hostage crisis! Politics stopping at the water’s edge, my foot! All that’s happening here is that the people on the left understand that we’re dealing … Isn’t it funny that nobody cares about foreign policy? Remember, that wasn’t a big deal in this campaign? And even if it is a big deal, Obama’s the clear, clear superior leader. It would just make more people vote for Obama.

    “He’s just a whiz at foreign policy. He’s made the world love us!” Obama gave us this! Obama gave us the Arab Spring, which has turned into what happened yesterday. Obama praised it, sanctioned it. He even tried to claim that they came about because of him. The Arab Spring and the Brotherhood were using the same tactics he used in his ’08 campaign. He, at one time, was trying to make it sound like there was solidarity between him and these ‘democratic freedom fighters,’ the Muslim Brotherhood.

    “We’re dealing with Islamist supremacists, and they are the mainstream. They are not the fringe, these people that killed the ambassador yesterday. And, by the way, they were let in. You may not know this. You can’t get into an American embassy. There are Marines. There are local police. You can’t get over the wall, rip down the flag, and set it afire unless somebody lets you in. That’s a question I have: Who let them in?”

    After winning that election, Ronald Reagan sold weapons to the very people who held our embassy hostage, in order to raise illegal funds for drug-dealing nun killers who happened to be anti-communist.


    Attacks on our people did not end during the Reagan administration. How many Marines were blown up in Beiruit? How many hostages were held in Lebanon, some of whom were murdered? Who was funding the groups attacking our people in Lebanon? Iran, the country Reagan sold weapons to.

    Rush has a very selective memory.

    So do you Libtard. Wasn't 5 minutes ago I was reading you agreeing whole heartedly with Lube that Americans weren't attacked in the 80's like they were in the 90's and beyond.

    Now here you are talking about all the people killed in the 80's by radical Islam.

    Make up your effin mind DUmmy.

    But-but-but, they did it, too!!!



    Pathetic, noonwitch, truly pathetic. There is not the first damned thing any demoshit can say right now that somehow or another will take away from the fact that your leper messiah royally fucked up.

    Nothing.

    Romney should be beating barry big ear's ass over this, every day, until the election just like Reagan beat Carter's ass with the embassy hostages in Iran. That was Rush's point, not some liberal moral equivalency bullshit that you just threw against the wall.

    While President Ronald Reagan was a supporter of the Contra cause, no conclusive evidence has been found showing that he authorized the diversion of the money raised by the Iranian arms sales to the Contras. To this day, it is unclear exactly what Reagan knew and when, and whether the arms sales were motivated by his desire to save the U.S. hostages.

    You should use facts in your arguments.

    Also, you may want to ask yourself why the hostages in Iran were returned as Reagan took office. The answer, I believe, is that America, with the election of Reagan, once again assumed the presence it had previously achieved and lost under Carter.

    In other words, the Iranians were scared shitless.

    He didn't fuck up! This is what Obama wants. I think he misjudged the intensity of feeling and the lengths that the islamists would go to, but HE WANTS the US to fail at foreign policy. It's part of his belief system. It's been on the agenda all along, and right now, he's thinking, "Okay, okay, pretty good. Too bad about the folks who died, but still, not bad. Now, how can I spin this?"
