Obama Slides in Latest Foreign Policy Polling Following Benghazi Massacre and Cover-Up

Barack Obama slid in the latest foreign policy poll following the Benghazi slaughter and cover-up.
Americans just weren’t willing to accept the slaughter was a protest over a YouTube video.

Mitt Romney now leads Obama 48-42 in the one area where Obama had some success during his first term.
Foreign Policy reported:

The foreign-policy results of the new Bloomberg National Poll haven’t gotten much attention yet, but the survey contains some bad news for the Obama campaign. According to the poll, Mitt Romney has a 48-42 advantage over Barack Obama on the question of which candidate would be tougher on terrorism. Romney, in other words, has encroached on one of Obama’s signature strengths.

What makes this result so surprising is that the president has consistently trounced Romney when it comes to counterterrorism. A Fox News poll earlier this month found that 49 percent of respondents trusted Obama to do a better job than Romney in protecting the United States from terrorist attacks, compared with 41 percent who put their faith in the Republican candidate. The president had a 51-40 advantage on handling terrorism in an ABC News/Washington Post poll around the same time, and a 50-35 edge on carrying out the war on terror in an Ipsos/Reuters poll in August. The Democrats’ rare national-security muscle was on full display at their convention, where speakers boasted about the administration’s successful raid against Osama bin Laden and targeted killings of al Qaeda leaders.

    US officials knew Libya attack was
    terrorism within 24 hours, sources confirm

    [Intelligence sources said that the Obama administration internally
    labeled the attack terrorism from the first day in order to unlock and
    mobilize certain resources to respond, and that officials were looking
    for one specific suspect. The sources said the intelligence community
    knew by Sept. 12 that the militant Ansar al-Shariah and Al Qaeda in
    the Islamic Maghreb were likely behind the strike.

    Further, an official said, “No one … believed that the mortars, indirect
    and direct fire, and the RPGs were just the work of a mob — no one.”]

    What is really sad is that Administration framed this filmmaker as the culprit and the Democratic Judge will revoke his bond and put him in jail. Poetic justice would be to have his film nominated for an Emmy and for him to win. Then, he should run for political office and speak out about how fair Obama was–NOT.

    Obama hasn’t slid far enough yet. Once he and Michelle O are out of the White House the country can save 1.4 billion dollars a year supporting these arrogant, modern day “Jeffersons”. I thought the 55 million plus the Brits spend on the royal family was extravagant. That doesn’t hold a candle to what this country spends on our imperial presidency.

    Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch

    [However, Clinton’s attempt to distance the U.S. from “Innocence
    of Muslims” –and, by extension, its felonious producer –may be
    complicated by the revelation that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula
    became a government informant after his 2009 arrest for bank
    fraud, The Smoking Gun has learned.]

    Can you guess who still supports Obama?

    James Zogby: Arab American Voters ‘Overwhelmingly’ Support Obama,” by Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter in Newsmax, September 27

    Prominent Middle East expert Dr. James Zogby tells Newsmax that President Obama is polling about 18 percent below his 2008 numbers among Arab-American voters.
    But those Arab-Americans who are Muslims now “overwhelmingly” support the Democratic candidate compared to four years ago, he adds….

    Zogby is founder and president of the Arab American Institute, a Washington, D.C.–based organization that serves as a political and policy research arm of the Arab-American community, and author of the book “Arab Voices: What They Are Saying to Us and Why it Matters.”

    The Arab American Institute and JZ Analytics polled Arab-American voters in the key swing states of Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia, and found that they favor Obama over Mitt Romney by a margin of 52 percent to 28 percent….

    “Here’s my sense: Arab-Americans are supportive of the president. They’re disappointed in some of the policies of the president, disappointed in his Middle East policy to be sure. But the Republican side hasn’t given them any reason to reconsider their support.
    “So they’re disappointed, maybe, in one side but they’re pretty much turned off by the other side. What we’re left with is a rock-solid Republican core — 20 or so percent of the Arab-American community is committed Republican but more than two times that are committed Democrats. They’re supporting Obama, they still want to believe that he’ll make change, they haven’t seen it, they’re a little disappointed but they’re very turned off by the approach that’s been taken by Mitt Romney and by what has become the mainstream in the Republican Party. The message has not been inviting to Arab-Americans.”…

    Why did the military need Obama’s permission in the first place to get Bin Laden?

  • Gail

    I apologize if I am taking up too much space but this is a very important email I received this morning and I need to share it. I don’t know why but I was very personally moved by this. I forwarded this not to just family and friends but to everyone on my email list including businesses I have done business with, like I said, everyone. I don’t care if I offend anyone, anymore!

    Freedom not Tyranny for me!


    Subject: What is Going On? Urgent!

    From My personal experience at Bagram last year, when the commander-in-thief came over, the troops were handpicked screened, and disarmed, including the Marines. All base roads, sidewalks, and access to flight lines, mess halls, etc. were restricted and totally blocked with heavily armored vehicles. No vehicle movement of any kind was allowed including flight crews! He is truly an enemy sympathizing coward and worthless POS!

    You may quote me.


    More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before.

    Thirty have died in August. During the last month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan.

    The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president.

    It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.

    Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform.

    But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president.

    Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.

    The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.

    Veterans: Please forward to your lists. High Priority!

    Innocence of Muslims Film actually made by TERRORISTS

    There is more to the story of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula than what we are told by the media. Court documents reveal that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of the movie Innocence of Muslims, partnered in a scheme with Eiad Salameh, my first cousin, a Palestinian Muslim from Beit Sahour in the Palestinian district of Bethlehem.

    To prove my claim, I revealed Eiad Salameh long before this whole fiasco erupted—in 2008 and the first real reportage of Eiad and Nakoula was revealed on September 14th, 2012.

    Now do I have your attention?

    The narrative that circulates the media fails to answer crucial questions behind the mystery of this film.

    For example, to date, no one has stepped forward or can confirm for certain that whoever holds an identity by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is that man’s true identity. In the Middle East, if a man by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula indeed exists while being blamed for creating a mess of international proportions—which included the anger of over one billion Muslims—it would not be that difficult to find the entire family in Egypt, including brothers, cousins, aunts, siblings wife, wives, ex-wives, mistresses, pets and all.

    In the Middle East, no one can hide. Egypt is where the demonstrations that have taken place all over the Middle East and Asia were sparked. Yet, it cannot produce this man’s background?

    Besides, why would Nakoula, who claims to be a religious Coptic activist, have extensive connections with Eiad? My cousin hated Copts with a passion and is well-known in the Middle East as a master schemer, probably one of the best the Middle East has produced. He also has multiple contacts with terror networks.

    Eiad is from Beit Sahour, Bethlehem. He is a dubious individual who was well known in the Arab community as the main contact for obtaining authentic, legitimate identifications from passports to credit cards, under many nationalities. He then places these identifications into the hands of dubious characters whose names are not the names written on the passports.

    Eiad is a Muslim terror supporter and is not an Egyptian Copt. Both my cousin Eiad and whoever this man is who pretends to be Nakoula, had multiple, fraudulent identifications and the two connected for a decade in multiple scheming operations—the type that usually links to terrorism. http://www.therightscoop.com/innocence-of-muslims-film-actually-made-by-terrorists/
