Were you one of the victims or just decided to trust Muslim bashers?
. It sounds like you've been enjoying unnatural sex with your priest or your Muslim cleric. Tell us more about your miserable closet homosexuality life...
You dudes are hilarious. When faced with the truth of what being a Muslim is like, you tuck your mind in cover up mode and attempt to turn it back on your educator. It is a fact that Muslim nations have a higher rate of retardation than civilized nations due to sex with close relatives. It is a fact that the majority of suicide bombers are of extremely low I.Q. Can you say incest results. It is a fact that "Little Boys Clubs" abound in Muslim nations where adult men are having sex with young boys. The irony is that you non-educated indenial homosexual sleeze balls will stone another homosexual to death . If a young girl has sex outside of marriage, she will be stoned to death. If a man has sex with someone other than his wife, that is ok since he is a male. Bunch of sickos !

You Muslim con artists are funnier than hell. Pretending that you use toliet paper when your hands smell otherwise. I cross the street when I see one coming so I can avoid the odor.

"The entire cast and crew are extremely upset and feel taken advantage of by the producer. We are 100% not behind this film and were grossly misled about its intent and purpose. We are shocked by the drastic re-writes of the script and lies that were told to all involved. We are deeply saddened by the tragedies that have occurred." It appears that all the religious references were dubbed over in post-production. One woman Cindy Lee Garcia of Bakersfield....

..."This morning, first Hillary Clinton and then Barack Obama expressed sentiments appropriate for a nation whose interests and people had been attacked.

Each began by talking about the commitment and sacrifice of the Americans who serve their country overseas; then they condemned the violence of the attack; then they promised justice; then they affirmed America's belief in free expression of all views but said that this could never be an excuse for violence. They spoke for the country, and its values, and the people it had lost.

Mitt Romney could have waited, as they did. When he spoke, he could have said essentially the same thing as they did. We honor the people who serve us. We condemn the violence they endured. We express sorrow and support to their families, and we affirm belief in our values. Americans disagree on many issues, including foreign policy, but those disputes can wait until another day.

But that is not what he said. When he first heard about the violence and protests last night, he rushed to condemn the administration before anyone knew fully what was going on. After he had had a few hours to think, he dug himself in far deeper with a graceless press conference whose dominant theme was partisan criticism of the administration.

In short, when faced with a 3 a.m. test, he reacted immediately, rather than having the instinct to wait. And after he waited, he mistook this as a moment for partisanship rather than for at least the appearance of statesmanlike national unity. The irony, of course, is that resisting the partisan impulse today would have been the greatest possible boost to his horse-race prospects two months from now.

Think of this temperament and these instincts in a command role, and with stakes much higher than they were today..." Well said!

<quoted text>You are dancing again. Exactly how many Christians are flying planes into buildings and killing innocents around the globe ?
Your feeble attempt to say that all religions have their terrorist organizations is failing since nothing can compare to Islamic terrorists around the globe. Muslims have no problem securing suicide bombers due to the incest within their community. The rate of retardation is extremely high in the Muslim faith and there is no shortage of candidates for suicide vests.
Now you have simply shown yourself to be an ill informed, easily lead, bigot. A true representation of the stereotypical sheep of the right. Luckily I have many friends on the right, that show me on a daily basis, that those stereotypes aren't correct, and don't hold true for the majority of religious conservatives. Not to be confused with fiscal conservatives like myself.

You have shown your remarkable ability to reduce millions and millions of people to a stereotype that you have formed, not from knowing those people, but from gathering inciting and bigoted information from your sheperds.

Romney had a 19 percent chance of winning the election going into last night, he just moved that percentage down a few points.

Even if he was right in his statements, which IMO, he was not. He is apparently to stupid to know when to keep his mouth shut. He's shown that time and time again.

When Rush said it doesn't matter if Romney is Elmer Fudd, we're voting against Obama not for Romney, I don't know if he knew how close he was to an actual description of the GOP candidate. Lol!

He looks more like Jimmy Carter every day!
They were chanting "we are all Osama Bin Ladin"
I hope the 71 virgins they think are waiting for them all look like Rosie O'donnel after a binge without make up!

No, I'm for the mass killing of our enemies, prior to them killing us.

Attacking our embassy was an act of war carried out by Libyans. Because Libya cannot control it's own people, we must.

It's a good thing Obama LOOKED presidential then, since his foreign policy got three of our diplomats killed.

It's time for a change in foreign policy..it's time for a change in leadership.

I'm voting Romney.

After Romney's blunders today, you may be the only one.

Even conservative Republicans on EVERY network are saying Romney screwed up yet again.

Watch the polls tomorrow; Obama will be pulling ahead even further.
