You CAN put lipstick on a jackass [Reader Post]

By 22 Comments 800 views

It's still a jackass.

In a crass reference to Sarah Palin Barack Obama once said

“You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig.”

It certainly appears that you put lipstick on a jackass.

Crowley, despite her agreement to the contrary, saw fit to insert herself into the second Presidential debate and act as a shill for Barack Obama. In so doing, made an ass of herself– or more correctly, a bigger ass of herself.

Her most disgraceful act tonight was her incorrect seconding of Obama's statement that he declared the Libya terrorist attacks to be “terror.” While Obama did indeed use the word, this is not what he meant by it. Instead, he was simply referring to “acts of terror.” There was no mention of Al Qaeda or any of its affiliates with respect to the actual attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.

On September 12, Obama said:

“The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts…No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.”

“…these brutal acts…”

Plural. Meaning all of the so-called “protests.”

He did not specifically say that the Benghazi attack was an act of terror while at the same time he seems to be suggesting that the protests which occurred in Cairo and elsewhere were terrorist in nature.

Then it all went away. For the next two weeks the Obama administration kept repeating

“It's only a movie”

“Frankly, we are not in a position to speak any further to the perpetrators of this attack. It was clearly a complex attack. We’re going to have to do a full investigation.”

— Unnamed senior administration official, briefing reporters in a conference call, Sept. 12

“I think it’s important to note with regards to that protest that there are protests taking place in different countries across the world that are responding to the movie that has circulated on the Internet. As Secretary Clinton said today, the United States government had nothing to do with this movie. We reje

ct its message and its contents. We find it disgusting and reprehensible. America has a history of religious tolerance and respect for religious beliefs that goes back to our nation’s founding. We are stronger because we are the home to people of all religions, including millions of Muslims, and we reject the denigration of religion. We also believe that there is no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence.”

Jay Carney would not call it terrorism:

— Carney, news briefing, Sept. 14

“Based on the best information we have to date … it began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo, where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful video. But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that effort with heavy weapons of the sort that are, unfortunately, readily now available in Libya post-revolution. And that it spun from there into something much, much more violent…. We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.”

Susan Rice went out and lied through her teeth

— Susan E. Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sept. 16

“We had a substantial security presence with our personnel and the consulate in Benghazi. Tragically, two of the four Americans who were killed were there providing security. That was their function. And indeed, there were many other colleagues who were doing the same with them.”

On This Week:

“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”

As late as September 25 Obama appeared on The View and refused to call the Benghazi attack terrorism.

Crowley was either woefully ignorant of the timeline or, more likely, acting once more as a useful idiot.

Crowley later said that Romney was “right in the main,” which she could not find time to mention during the debate. Nor did she mention that Obama was trying to have it both ways.

It's bad enough when Obama spews lies, but it's worse when the left wing press won't call him on it at all. You would think that he can't have it all ways, but the press seems to assure that he can.

And Candy Crowley has proved that you can put lipstick on a jackass but it's still a jackass.

    John even if Obama did say that, it’s most disappointing that you would also stoop to that level.

    I’m no fan of Crowley’s politics, or how she manipulated the debate, but ad hominem attacks, quite different than calling someone out on a lie, reduces everyone to the level of the gutter.

    Besides, any reasonable person open to the facts can only conclude that Benghazi was a massive cover-up. We don’t need the “food fight.”

    @Patricia:
    With all due respect, ma’am, your reply sounds like doublespeak to me, obama lied, cutter lied, clinton lied, they ALL lied, when facts reveal they KNEW, undeniably, within 3 hours of the attack in libya beginning, exactly what it was, and by whom!
    We ARE at war with islam, whether anyone will ever admit that fact or not, and trying to “nicify” things isn’t helping! What we SHOULD be doing is storming the whitehouse and evicted all of them who participated, not further covering it up with nicities and platitudes…obama got a bunch of people very DEAD and he has to be held accountable for that!

    White I made it more than clear that the Benghazi cover up is a big deal.

    My main point was that there are plenty of facts to support both the cover up and the lies, of which of course all involved should be held accountable. It’s the jackass name calling that is uncalled for, and what I was objecting to.

    It doesn’t serve any useful purpose except to prove that despite our poliltical differences, we also fail to treat each other as fellow human beings. Showing human dignity to our fellow Americans, even if we disagree, has absolutely nothing to do with going soft against terrorists.

    I approve this message!!! Food fight.

    Yo @white. Forget the Whitehouse, show up Nov6.

    Now about that storming of our embassy. Here’s a video of the attack. At the 1:15 mark there is an exchange between the gunmen, in which one can be heard, saying [in Arabic], ‘Don’t Shoot us! We were sent by Morsi’.

    Until the left adheres to their chosen ones’ declarations on “civility”, I for one will have no problem calling a spade a spade. I don’t know what the Hell the other side is but judging by their actions, they sure as HELL aren’t Americans.

    At the very least, they are not Americans by MY definition. Show me dignity before I show you any. Dignity, like respect is EARNED.

    Until then, they remain, in my estimation, scum sucking, low life, traitorous, good-for-nothing trash.

    The evidence coming out is…that they knew from the start that this was no protest gone awry. But, they pushed this meme…..that it wasn’t a terroist attack. The “Problem with that is several things. For one..there is “zero” evidence …from 12 hours out and on…that supports that view. Rice’s claim that someone gave her that info from Intel community is suspect…given that CIA and intelligence divisions knew otherwise within 12 hours.

    Lastly..the BIGGER picture here..beyond the timeline…is that by pushing this meme ..the whitehouse did things in the middle east (like a media campaign in Pakistan) etc…which on exacerbated the problem. It caused them to make very bad decisions.

    Lastly, this has been the case since Obama was first elected and his team came into office. They have rewritten counter terroism manuals…and PC’d everything…then based their decisions off it. They did the same thing to the economy. That says nothing to intention. Their “intentions” were different. The results …however…speak for themselves (despite their denials).

    I don’t like calling the liberals names of animals. It is an insult to the animals. Animals are useful, and some of them taste good. You can’t say the same for the liberals.

    One way we can spread conservatism, is to call the USA the REPUBLIC that it is. The propaganda media wants it called a democracy so we will think of the democratic party, instead of the republican party. Call it a REPUBLIC and people might ask you why you do. You can explain it to them and get them thinking. I see “democracy” mentioned too many times by FA conservatives. Each time you do, the propaganda media is laughing at you, because they know their brainwashing is working. Let’s get the public thinking about the REPUBLICAN party for 2012. PLEASE CALL THE USA THE REPUBLIC THAT IT IS.

    Any way you look at it, animals are more useful than liberals. If you feed an animal, you either get work out of it, or can sell it later for a proffit. What happens when you feed a liberal?

    Remember, from his own book, Obama said:

    In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    Is there any doubt in your mind that he is a muslim?

    Besides, I would not call Crowley a jackass, more like Jabba the Hut!

    you would think his own followers would believe what he said,
    it prove they believe what they would like him to be, not what he said,
    it make me think of the story of the man with an enchanted flute,
    who played so well his tune, and got all the rats to follow and out the cliff they went.
