Mitt Romney was looking for a reason to attack Barack Obama on the grounds of foreign policy. He knew that after the killing of Osama bin Laden and the ending of the war in Iraq that he needed a silver bullet, and he now got it.
It turns out that Mitt Romney was behind the anti-Islam movie that has sparked the uprising in the Middle East. He played his cards and did so with great prestige. The film sparked the outrage that Romney was looking for and the results couldn’t be better. He even showed that during his press conference yesterday:
That was Mitt smirking yesterday after blaming Obama for the problems in the Middle East.
So how credible is this information?
Well it isn’t. See I have decided to play the conspiracy theory game that the right loves engaging in. Take Republican leader, Rush Limbaugh, yesterday, when he said this:
What if Ayman al-Zawahiri gave up Osama bin Laden for the express purpose of making Obama look good? Giving Obama stature, political capital?”
The justification would be so that Obama can help further the cause of al Qaeda. Media Matters has the audio available to hear for yourself.
But I’m just a little blog. I don’t get much traffic or have much influence, unlike Limbaugh. Limbaugh has a cult like following that would take this conspiracy and turn it into fact. Within days we can expect to see those pictures on Facebook making this claim as fact. The minions on the right will repeat it as gospel, believing it is fact. The problem is that it isn’t, just like the story I posted above.
There are conspiracy theorists on both the left and right. The big difference is that the mainstream left will disassociate themselves with these fringe groups, while the right embraces them and brings them into the fold. Look at the whole birther movement. We have Republican members of Congress who repeat that. How many Democratic members of Congress went up there and said Bush was behind 9/11? None!
So that’s why I’m glad I associate with the left. There is no room for conspiracies, fairy tales or lies in our political system. We are a country in trouble and we need serious people to work to fix it. The people who engage in this kind of story telling, like Rush Limbaugh, do nothing but further divide us. They are the true enemies of the state.
