How Do They Sleep At Night
You know what? I'm tired of the lies, and I'm tired of the politicization of issues that effect our freedoms and the transformation of America. How stupid do they think we are? And "they" includes everyone in the political arena. For the moment, it looks as if the Republicans are interested in getting some long-awaited answers as to who made the decisions to abandon Americans during an Islamic extremist attack. Will they persevere until the entire truth is revealed? Time will tell.
But the fact is that ABC News is now saying they received twelve different editions of the White House talking points, with the final version eradicating all references to jihad, Islamic extremists, terrorism, and Al Queda. (For a hard-hitting exposé, read this article.) Ultimately, the White House spokesman stuck to his lie that "only one stylistic change" was made; the word consulate changed to mission. Take a look at the following comparison of talking points issued by the White House, and make up your own mind.
Stop blaming the Republicans, a misguided ad by Mitt Romney, and, yes, even George W. Bush's administration (they're still playing that card!) Fess up and take responsibility for your poor judgment! Stop trying to blame others and be accountable! Repeating the same lies over and over again, doesn't make them true. And just because you offer a half-truth today, doesn't erase the fact that you lied to us nearly eight months ago. And just because you decided to hold your press conference on a Friday afternoon, to try to limit the damage, we will not let this scandal be so easily dismissed. Your actions are incompatible with the character of our nation, and we have been betrayed.
Proverbs 19:5 A false witness will not go unpunished, And he who speaks lies will not escape.
