Hey Rummy--there were 12 embassy attacks under Bush II

Yesterday, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tweeted that Mitt Romney was right to say the tragic attacks on U.S. embassies on Tuesday were the result of perceived American weakness:

The attacks on our embassies & diplomats are a result of perceived American weakness. Mitt Romney is right to point that out.

— Donald Rumsfeld (@RumsfeldOffice) September 12, 2012

Actually, there were twelve terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities abroad during George W. Bush’s tenure — the most of any president in history — and eight of those occurred while Donald Rumsfeld was in office.

The embassy breaches on Tuesday marked the second attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities during President Obama’s tenure

1. Thank you. I had forgotten.

There was so much horror during the * years that horrors perpetrated outside the boundaries of the US, I forgot!

6. Say What????

I think these Neo Cons, right wing nuts go off the handle whenever they fell itchy.

I was watching McCain choke on his words, saying Obama is weak and has to quit apologize for the mixed messages. Well, I think Mitt is sending more mixed messages and is cowardly using this to reach his base. This is applauding and makes Obama the man in the room.

I feel safer with Obama and is staff and happy that McCain did not win in 2009 and won't feel safe if Romney win. I think Obama will take a strong hold of this situation and will guide us through this tough time. Again, we need to make sure Obama is re-elected and send Mitt and his goofy groups of nuts back in the box and throw the key away.

Oh, and does anyone have any duct tape to shut Palin up? I am getting tired of her spewing words out that she can not spell.

7. Rumsfeld had no idea planes had hit the WTC on 9/11 until a plane hit the pentagon

 

over an hour later.

When questioned about the fighter jet response, he said our RADAR was looking outward.

This was the leader of the greatest military on earth?

I don't know about American weakness, but that man must be the dumbest idiot on earth.

THAT was projecting strength? When we could have instead save the lives of thousands of Americans.

Then, confused and basing his 'evidence' on ridiculous forgeries, he attacks the wrong nation oops.

Because he just knew those weapons were 'north, south, east, west, somewhat'
