One of the things I’ve noticed about the current crisis are the parallels between the actions of this administration here and the actions of the Democrats during the DNC. Lets looks at the sequence of events:
Step 1: Democrat National Convention Party approves platform without word “God” and pulls Jerusalem language
Step 1: Middle East: US Embassy in Egypt issues statement condemning those who would hurt Muslim’s feelings
Step 2: DNC: Uproar over statements begins
Step 2: ME: Attacks on Embassy in Egypt/Libya
Step 3: DNC: After statement noticed Dick Durbin and Debbie Wasserman Schultz double down on new platform.
Step 3: ME: Embassy Doubles Down repeats the statement
Step 4: DNC: New media address issue DNC gets worried
Step 4: ME: Mitt Romney issues embargoed statement on attacks & Embassy statement
Step 5: DNC: By an odd coincidence after a bad web cycle platform changed (with comical results)
Step 5: ME: By an odd coincidence around the same time as the Romney Statement hits reporters e-mails the White House suddenly disavow the Embassy statements (based on MSNBC timeline)
Step 6: DNC MSM makes light of platform change, but Insists it was Obama’s Idea
Step 6: ME MSM make like of embassy statement attacks hitting Romney instead but insists Statement wasn’t from White House
Step 7: DNC Over 500K+ views of Booing God video, Congressman Allen West uses video in ad in Florida
Step 7: ME Mitt Romney makes statement condemning attacks, admin reaction and defends 1st Amendment
Step 8: DNC Media ignores the video and surrogates call talk of it “Trolling”
Step 8: ME: MSM plays down Mitt’s live press statements coordinates attack on Timing during Q & A.
Step 9: DNC MSM pretends God stuff didn’t happen and goes with the narrative of the success of Clinton/Obama speeches
Step 9: ME: MSM plays down embassy statement goes with the narrative of Mitt Romney’s timing
Bottom line the plan is path is the same, make a bad move, support it, when it starts to backfire deny it and then decide on a new narrative and stick with it.
This is not a coincidence this is what they do.
