While shredding the GOP/Fox News version of events, Williams refers to the stories he's debunking as "deliberate misinformation," and "political spin," and paints their memes as ghoulishly opprotunistic. Then he tops it off by admitting that neither Fox News, nor the GOP in general, have the first shred of evidence to back up their claims.
After calling it "time for American journalism to hit pause on the political spin cycle," Williams writes:
Once the political spin stops, the bottom line is there is no evidence so far to support the Romney camp’s claim of incompetence or a cover-up by the administration. There is only a tragic attack on the United States, our understanding of which is becoming clearer as new intelligence comes to light.
Win at all costs and apologize later is the rule in political campaigns, and the GOP has seen Obama’s approval rating on foreign policy fall in the aftermath of the Libya attack.
But this is one political strategy that is based on deliberate misinformation about the Benghazi assault.
Of course, Williams specifically debunks the "GOP's False Narrative" and never mentions a word about Fox News' GOP-driven reporting. But you have to wonder why Fox News, the very network that employs Williams is not listening.
First, about the article: Juan Williams, a Fox News contributor and part-time host wrote an article that flat admits the GOP version of events (which his network created and push) are a complete load of crap, and that the White House has actually been honest with us as far as it’s been confirmed.
More on that on my next comment elsewhere.
Second: About the comments from Brian and Maurice: Bush has not come up once without being provoked by the right. They want to extend/renew a Bush policy, comparing whether or not a throwback would help us always
Bush’s policies that worked short term imploded, many of his policies did indeed fail. Fact.
We’re still losing money on the collapses caused by Bush’s tax cuts and corporate welfare -Which the Republicans thought were important enough to hold healthcare and the budget over. Fact.
Romney admitted that he wants to do many of Obama’s ideas
I wasted my time typing all that, because you’re so blinded by your hostile bias that your whole idea of debate is to come in yelling and yell some more at anyone that shoots back. Fact.
Personally, I would never choose a person who bet against the United States and outsourced most of their money on a bet that Foreign Currency would do better than U.S Currency, (funny that these same people will throw Millions into SuperPacs to claim “Obama wants to strip ‘In God We Trust’” from American currency, but have most of their money in Foreign currency (no mention of God on the Swiss Franc or Cayman Island currency these Super Christians have NO problem bowing to.) countries betting against us, instead of betting For us. For someone who wants to the leader of the Nation he was hedging his money against. All he did by that was make other countries stronger with his money. NOT A TRUE AMERICAN in my book. I will put my life on the line in the military as almost 30% HAVE done, but if you are betting against America with your cash. ……..Rich people….Absolutely ZERO loyalty. There’s capitalism.. and there’s CAPITALISM. Gee. Makes you wonder why Romney want’s to spend TRILLIONS more on the military, even though they are not asking for it…Sounds like those ‘Government Jobs and Contracts’ that make fat men rich. He’s gonna "Do it on his own’ with government contracts….again.
Holding a MAJORITY still does not make you Filibusterproof. And for the short time the Dems WERE, by 1 vote, Ted Kennedy spent 6 months in the hospital before he died so he never casted a vote.
As for Romney calling out China for Currency Manipulation? They have been doing it for years and, while during the last 4 elections have had every candidate SAY they will take them to task, but NOT 1 official has, or will EVER do. And yes there were 9 Embassy attacks and dozens killed during the last administration.
I also find it funny that, while the Romney list of his proposed Admin. Officials ALL worked for the Bush Administration, Bush has not even showed his face in this election. You can’t distance yourself from something when you plan to rehire the entire staff of the puppet you are avoiding like the plague.
Romney’s nothing but a Snake Oil Salesman saying ‘I can fix EVERYTHING. Just don’t ask me how.’
Would you rent an apartment from a landlord who said “Well I can’t tell you the actual rent, or what utilities you will be responsible for, because you won’t understand it, but sign here and take my word for it. You will be better off.” This is the exact same bullshit that got millions of Americans into “Just trust me” housing loans. WAKE UP PEOPLE.
And NO ONE ever called him on his bullcrap or his hypocrisy.
*Space Cowboy, of course, is a reference to the Steve Miller song, “The Joker,” in which Miller sings “Some people call me the Space Cowboy, some call me the Gangster of Love, some people call me Maurice.” I thought the nickname was appropriate. (It’s not really fair to Miller, though, but the song is really pretty weak. Just as the earlier individual’s comment was.)
Also, you hypocrites, were you whining about spending under Bush? You shut up then, so keep it shut!
When did your hero Chimperor Bush deliver a balanced budget?
Did he catch OBL as he promised?
If you don’t like China’s “currency manipulation” ban any umerichun company from doing business with China.
Start with Coca-Cola and Wally World.
And speaking of government regulations, I have some baby formula and tooth paste to sell you.
Cheap. Made in China.
Mittens knows very well what is like to do business in China. Just like Halliburton setting up another corporate home in Dubai.
Check this chit out:
Soon-to-be-relaxed rules in China have firms including American International Group Inc. (AIG) and Allianz SE (ALV) eager to grab a bigger share of the $50 billion that the countryâs drivers spend each year on auto insurance.
Do you want a coke with your driver’s insurance?
Honestly, your right-wing lies are so easy to tear apart. Maybe you should stop listening to FoxGOPTV, Lardass bLimpbaugh and batshitcrazy beckkk. They’re making you look stupid.
Nayef, He has outspent Bush in terms of deficit spending and for what? To say that we have as few jobs as when he started, yet we have more adults looking for work!? Oh good job POTUS. You started with a pile of mess and now we have the same pile and we are more indebted. Brilliant work.
The non-disclosure of the attack on the Libyan Consulate is an attempt by everyone in the administration of cover up his failed handling of our affairs in the Arab, Persian, and Jewish world.
The last four years are BETTER than the 8 years of Bush. Under Bush, the economy was LOSING jobs. Obama’s economy is not losing jobs. It is GAINING jobs, but the Obama’s GAIN so far has not compensated for Bush’s LOSS.
Facts are really hard for conservatives to use when they are not in thier favor. Democrats held a majority for half of Obama’s term and the latter half of Bush’s term. What exactly has the POTUS failed at the last 4 years? I see you’re calling for full disclosure of the Benghazi attack. Not to be dismissive or make light of Benghazi but you do realize there were numerous embassy attacks under Bush right?
