Obama’s seven point lead up in smoke
Gallup’s Presidential Election tracking poll for September 5-11 had President Obama leading Governor Romney by seven points 50% to 43%.
Now the Gallup tracking poll shows that Obama’s seven point lead has gone up in the smoke from burning U.S. embassies. For the last two days Obama only leads Romney by a single point. That is why the biased media wing of the Democrats’ party is desperately trying its darnedest to convince you the election is over.
As Obama’s convention bounce rose to seven points, we saw the smoke from the burning U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya and we saw the smoke from the remains of the stars and stripes that riotous Muslim mobs pulled down from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt. We also learned al Qaeda attacked the American-lead multinational peacekeeping force in the Sinai. They also attacked a U.S. Marine base in Southern Afghanistan in an effort to kill Britain’s Prince Harry.
The next day, September 12, we learned that four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Stevens, were killed in what the Obama regime finally admits was a terrorist attack in Benghazi. We also saw the smoke from the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia, as more riotous Muslim mobs attacked there, in Khartoum,Sudan and Sana’a, Yemen.
On September 13, we learned that Obama did not attend any of his daily intelligence briefings since September 5. Obama didn’t care enough about the fact that our adversaries are known to use the anniversary of 9/11 to target the United States to attend intelligence briefings during the six days before the terrorists’ 9/112012 offensive. American Crossroads took Obama to task for his lackadaisical approach to critical foreign policy issues in this hard hitting video.
On September 16, we saw Susan Rice, Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations, appear on several of the Sunday morning news shows and mislead the American people by claiming the vicious attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was unplanned and provoked only by an anti-Islam video.
The hateful Muslim mobs have continued their rioting against American and the Obama administration was forced to close the U.S. consulate in Medan, Indonesia on September 19, due to ongoing “protests.” An event which disproves Obama’s naive belief that he could just say nice things, and because he had lived in Islamic country of Indonesia during his youth and his half-sister is Muslim, the Muslim hate for America would dissipate. On September 21, all U.S. diplomatic missions in Indonesia will be closed.
So it is not at all surprising that the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that Obama’s approval rating on foreign policy has dropped five points since August. Now, only 49 percent approve of the president’s job in handling foreign policy. Last month, 54 percent approved of Obama’s foreign-policy handling. Worse, only 41 percent of Independents approve of Obama’s foreign-policy handling, versus 53 percent who did so last month.
The biased media incorrectly insisted Romney was wrong to Obama’s incoherent response to the Cairo debacle, and to question Obama’s now discredited policies of appeasement and apology that have left us so dangerously vulnerable in the Middle East and still hated in the Muslim world.
The lesson to be learned from the terrorists’ 9/11/12 offensive is that despite Obama’s protestations to the contrary, the War Against Terror is not over, and Governor Romney was right to criticize Obama for sending mixed signals about the violence of the hateful Muslim mobs.
