It's not fishy. It was a terrorist attack on our embassy on 9-11. The side story are the excuses being made for the actions of Muslim extremists.

I am confused, I am not talking about 911, I am talking about what happened last week over a guy that made a movie a released the trailer that sent everyone off in the middle east? Please explain.

ROFLMFAO
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 12:27 PM
Yes he was the Republican was arrested. Its all under his Riverside County Court records..
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 12:37 PM
Thats the education level of Roy Lee Holmgren.......Romney is the worst Presidential candidate of all time. He doesn't have the support of anyone, not the fundamentalist Republicans, not the Christian right, not the conservative pundits.. No one cares for this rich etch a sketch character. Polls this morning- Quinnipiac/CBS/NYT: Obama Opens Up Significant Leads In Ohio, Florida And Pennsylvania President Barack Obama now claims leads in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania that suggest the three states are no longer battlegrounds, according to a slate of new polls out Wednesday. The latest swing state polls from Quinnipiac University, CBS News and the New York Times show Obama holding leads of 10 points in Ohio, 9 points in Florida and 12 points in Pennsylvania. Fifty-percent of likely voters in Ohio and Florida approve of the job Obama is doing as president, In all three states, 51 percent of voters prefer Obama over Romney to preside over the national economy — a policy area over which the president has seized the upper-hand in the last month. About 60 percent of voters in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania say Obama understands and cares about their problems, while similarly large majorities say Romney does not. Roy Holmgren is that stupid. He says polls don't matter.....LOL....OK, I love the position our President is in, in this election.
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 12:39 PM
How do you think Roy Holmgren's wife supports her two children. Government help. Roy pays only 132 dollars a month. Thats all he could afford. Still, he is having his child support deducted directly from his salary because he is a deadbeat Dad. He calls everybody that has used government help as a taker.......so is he.......
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 12:47 PM
Here is Mitt Romney's healthcare plan-- the poor can use the ER. Romney continues to prove he is a man of the rich not the common man. He and his wife, have NEVER struggled financially. Ann Romney has always been surrounded by maids and nanny's. She knows nothing about how tough it is for working Mom's in this country. Mitt's business experience has been to buy up and tear down companies, outsourcing jobs. As a Governor he was a progressive.....he changes in front of the group he is speaking to. If you don't like his policy today, wait till tomorrow, it will be something different.
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 01:31 PM
Roy Holmgren- I'm still waiting......you're going to shoot me in the face, film me getting arrested; punch me in the face over the Iraq war; have his daughter beat me up.......has threatened to follow my wife to work. Impersonated me...... Roy Lee Holmgren is a coward. He thinks that if he uses phrases like- Lock and load, we will all tremble at his presence. This is exactly why he's had so many restraining orders issued against him. He's got a huge anger management problem. He threatened Randon Lane, to "expose" the truth about him. Has anyone heard anything?? Of course not. He needs to feel that he has power over people. Roy, no one cares about you. Youre a nothing. Youre the ultimate loser. Your wife left you for a man who takes care of your failed job and takes care of your kids, because you couldn't. Whats that like Roy......to see that youre a loser??? Unemployment Roy Holmgren. Hey Roy, pay your child support.
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 01:37 PM
In Ohio, the President leads Romney by TEN POINTS.....TEN POINTS is huge. In Florida, Obama has Nine point lead!!!!! These are huge numbers. Landslide numbers. Now even New Hampshire, Tennessee, Georgia, Arizona and North Carolina are all in play. Obama already has 343 electoral college votes, he only needs 270 to win. These types of numbers mean that the House of Representatives is in play too. Conservatives could possibly lose the Presidential race, the House and the Senate.......LOL......
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 01:39 PM
With absentee and early voting set to begin next week in Iowa, a battleground state in the presidential race, Democrats have a 6-1 edge in ballot requests so far, The Wall Street Journal reported. Democrats requested roughly 100,000 ballots, compared with 16,073 ballots requested by Republicans, the newspaper said. Absentee voting and in-person early voting begins on Sept. 27. "I see the early vote numbers, and I grimace a little bit," said Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Iowa Republican Party and the editor of a popular blog, told The Journal. "It feels like an Obama state…. The president has been more accessible to voters than [Mitt] Romney and [Paul] Ryan."
The Republican September 26, 2012 at 02:18 PM
Jeff you spike the ball too early. Trust me Jeff I am done taking.
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 02:28 PM
OK Roy, just let Dave Peters and Vic do your talking.....LOL. Still waiting Roy.....and I'm shaking in fear, It's a Liberal Landslide..........Obama Four more years. Roy Holmgren is so classy his best friends are gang members and a drug filled bar slut.
Sam Bradstreet September 26, 2012 at 02:37 PM
No Roy, I am not spiking the ball......I'm doing my touchdown dance on your ideology.....LOL. Still waiting Roy....LOL

Why did they send a gay ambassador to a people who ocassionally stone gays to death?
Seen it before September 30, 2012 at 07:27 PM
Sam Bradstreet- I read some of your posts- how the hell are you so boring?
Katheryn September 30, 2012 at 08:17 PM
A good friend sent this email and said the following, do you wonder if others have received more money than OBUMMER or ROM(/MORON/IDIOT)NEY? "Do you think this is what happens when a mining operator/Developer seems to be in control of your elected politicians and the appointed officials these same politicians put in positions of authority. Do you think government employees have to follow the instructions of these same politicians in order to keep their government jobs? Do you wonder if someone would be fired if they didn't do what the politicians wanted them to do?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5m_HypxyudI&feature=relmfu Have you seen the MaryAnn Edwards video featuring the Aberhill Ranch Boys and Girls Club with Castle & Cookes aggregate mining operation in the background it's across the street. Paul Jacobs may be onto something? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhckrqXX-L4 Another video of the Alberhill Ranch Boys and Girls Club which puts things in prospective: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e12kTmWvn7U&feature=related
Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 08:58 PM
Four more years!! Four more years!! 37 days and still no specifics about Romney's tax plan. When asked on Faux News, Ly'n Ryan said it would take to much time to explain. No specifics!!!!! No details on any of his policies. Obama electoral votes-343 Romney electoral votes-191
Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 08:59 PM
Obama now leads in Ohio poll........9 points. No Republican has ever won the Presidential election without Ohio....LOL
Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 09:01 PM
Today Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Ly'n Ryan, why he and Romney were losing......even FOX NEWS admits to an upcoming loss for Romney.
Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 09:15 PM
Newt Gingrich is already planning a Republican conference after the re-election of President Obama to map out a plan on how to prevent him passing the torch along to Hilary Clinton in 2016
Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 09:19 PM
The President has the lead in EVERY battleground state now, including North Carolina. To critics of polls Republican governor and chief food taster for the Republican Party, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday that he doesn't buy the argument advanced by various conservatives that recent polls showing Mitt Romney trailing are biased against him. "I don't buy that," he said on ABC's "This Week." "I don't think it's intentional -- you look at every different poll and look at its methodology and you can say whether it's a good or bad poll. But do I think there's a concerted effort to skew the polls against Governor Romney? No, I don't buy that."
Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 09:28 PM
I love being boring and extremely RIGHT!!!
Reverend Smith September 30, 2012 at 09:44 PM
Real reason: GOP wants no part in accepting all the flak that is going along with cleaning up Dubya's mess. There's no easy, clean solution to recovering from this senator's son's sihtstorm. So they put their backing behind a guaranteed loser - Romney to be sure Obama's name is forever associated with the hard measures that are necessary to repair the economy - the same way Clinton in the wake of Reagay/Bush.
Seen it before September 30, 2012 at 09:44 PM
And in other news: I farted.
Vic September 30, 2012 at 09:56 PM

Sam Bradstreet September 30, 2012 at 11:41 PM
