Resolved Question: Was Obama's behavior
Jose Maria Aznar
Or all of the above.
A deadly combination. If this election is about “trust” as Obama likes to say, then I trust him about as far as I could throw him.
This lady does about as good a job as you’ll see laying it all out:
Interesting footnote and something the Obama campaign has apparently forgotten:
A strikingly similar story from across the pond proves that honesty in the wake of terrorist attacks matters to voters.
On March 11, 2004, an al-Qaida terrorist cell bombed the commuter train system in Madrid, Spain. Nearly 200 people were killed.
The attack came just three days before Spain’s prime ministerial election. At the time, incumbent Jose Maria Aznar was enjoying a small lead in the polls. But the attack changed everything — and Aznar ended up losing to challenger Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero by five points.
Today, the consensus is that Aznar lost the election because of his mishandling and misrepresentation of the Madrid bombings. Aznar and his party claimed the bombings were the work of a Basque separatist organization, despite evidence to the contrary. The theory is that because Spain had recently entered the Iraq War — something that was unpopular with the Spanish electorate at the time — Aznar believed that admitting al-Qaida was behind the attack would damage his re-election chances.
The parallel between the Madrid bombings and the Benghazi attack is obvious. Like the Madrid bombings, the Benghazi attack happened in the midst of a heated campaign season and was followed by confusion, false assertions, and — worse — misrepresentations by the very political leaders asking for the electorate’s trust.
At the very least, the Obama administration bungled its response to the Benghazi attack. And the more information about the attack that surfaces, the worse President Obama looks.
Indeed. Keep this alive, because it illustrates explicitly why Obama is not someone this country can trust.

Open Question: Why did all the foreign
Many of the foreign leaders who supported Bush on iraq ended up being unseated in election. Examples --
1) Jose Maria Aznar (spain)
2) John Howard (australia)
3) tony blair (uk)
4) norway leader
5) poland leader
6) bulgarian leader (never sent troops but said iraq war is justified)
7) luxemborg leader (sent 7 troops, all 7 dead in iraq) Bush said all these leaders combined make up the "coalition of the willing" As per my knowledge iraq war was never approved by UN. Security Council member France vetoed it and so did russia and china express opposition. I would like to see your link where it says UN authorized the iraq war. There was no UN backing whatsoever

Resolved Question: Why was Henry Ford, one
Was it because he had read the "Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion" and thought it was true?
Did he dislike Muslims also? @One Knight: I am surprised that he did not contract anti-Jewishness while young. After all, prejudice towards African-Americans was much more prevalent than prejudice against Jews in the United States of America yet it would appear that he had nothing against African-Americans.

Resolved Question: Who else believes that
To begin with, I fully expect this question to be deleted. It is going to make hostile foreigners angry. But before that happens, this is for the American people:
A great number of Mexicans who come here legally support illegal immigration. So ultimately, aren't those people still Mexicans? It seems that they serve Mexico's interests, not ours.
We are a unique people with a culture, heroes, villians, families, and a past. What does a certificate of citizenship mean? And what about "dual-citizenship"? Is this even possible? What if the two countries go to war? To finish this question, let's remember a song that is close to each and every one of our hearts.
"My country, 'tis of Thee,
Sweet Land of Liberty
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring."
How many "Mexican-Americans" do you think feel the power behind the words in this song? Do they even know the tune? It appears that multi-culturalism is a myth. There is an American culture, and it is 'e pluribus unum.' Unum. For those who wish to learn about themselves, here is the song in full.
