Narrative Fail: Only 23% Believe YouTube Video Responsible For Violent Muslim Temper Tantrums

Activists on the beach in Cancun.

How sad is it when that 23% includes the president and his media minions?

Most voters think the recent protests at U.S. embassies in the Middle East were pre-planned and not a reaction to an anti-Islamic video on YouTube. They also believe overwhelmingly that terrorists are likely to have been involved in the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters feel that the recent embassy protests largely have been planned in advance. Just 23% think they were spontaneous reactions to the anti-Islamic video.

According to the bumbling Obama, the murder of our Ambassador in Libya is just a bump in the road.

Obama has used “bump in the road” before, in reference to unemployment, which was the inspiration for one of Romney’s best ads. Obama’s “bumps” seems to be what other people would call “failure.” The “bumps” include four dead Americans and a disastrous loss of intelligence. (The New York Times reports: “The attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans has dealt the Central Intelligence Agency a major setback in its intelligence-gathering efforts at a time of increasing instability in the North African nation.” One official is quoted as saying, “It’s a catastrophic intelligence loss. We got our eyes poked out.”) Had Romney said such a preposterous and grossly insensitive thing as Obama did, there would be calls for him to quit the race; alas, when Obama does it’s not even front-page news for most of the mainstream media.

    A number that amazingly coincides with the percentage of people who think Obama can do no wrong.

    [An effort to get “The Youth Vote” ready for BIG CHANGES COMING TO AMERICA!]

    As a kind of a “public announcement”
    Just a “heads up” for inquiring minds,
    Perhaps we could “talk” for a minute,
    ‘Though we know you have so little time.
    There are game shows to watch;
    And those sports—What demands!
    You could spend your whole life on TV
    And hey, girl, who’s the hottest?
    What’s the latest? Is it true what they said?
    “Staying hip is much harder than it seems!

    Well, we were all set for some silly election,
    That we knew that Obama would win,
    When those guys from the East got all crazy,
    ‘Cause they claimed that our movies were “sin”
    Would they “cool it”, take a “chill pill”,
    Or just “go with flow”? No, they went nuts!
    Killed our guys, burned our flags, yelled all day!
    All that sneering and strutting didn’t matter so much,
    We just figured they’d just go away.
    Then…their preachers said: “There’s hell to pay!

    Now, you KNOW we are hip with religion–
    “Live and let live” is our thing,
    But the stuff they were screaming on Prime Time TV,
    Was a “little bit much”, doncha think?
    Still, we’re sure we can renounce the faith of our past,
    After all, we’d “THE WON” as our God.
    He was sexy and smart (with that teleprompter thing)
    Every time that he spoke, we were AWED!
    So if the MEDIA, and the STARS, and “Our Man”
    Say “It’s cool”—we can quickly embrace a new law!

    Well, to get your new groove, we’re preparing
    You now, to get this “great future” on track.
    For the girls, it’s remarkably simply,
    You can have any Burka that’s black!
    True, you’ll not have the time to “keep current”
    ‘Cause your man keeps you flat on your back!
    Now you guys may get fit with a collar,
    Although “gelding’s” been known to occur.
    Still, we hope that you won’t swear or holler,
    Cause those penalties get more severe.
    [And be very, very sure you’re not queer!]

    Well, “To hell” as they say, “With our worries!”
    After all, you just haven’t a clue,
    That YOUR vote could change your “government” life,
    For to be pampered and worshipped’s your due!
    Drink that Kool-Aid; live with Mom;
    Watch that “aid” roll on in
    “Julia’s life” is the best to be found!
    Then prepare, really fast, to switch sides on the fly,
    Cause’ when Shari’a hits town, it’ll take us all down,
    And there’s no place that they’ll let us hide.
