    Just a sampling of terrorist attacks and how the right and left reacted in this country:

    Iran - After decades of enduring the US Puppet, the Iranians rise up and overrun the US embassy. Candidate Reagan stresses that it is a time to allow the President to assess the situation but in secret may have made deals with the hostage takers. After a failed rescue attempt and talks breaking down, the hostages are released less then an hour after Reagan in sworn in as President.

    Lebanon - Reagan sends Marines to help calm down the violence taking place in that country. A Marine base is bombed, killing over 250 of them. Reagan pulls out.

    9/11 - A group of mostly Saudi Nationals under the leadership of Osama Bin Laden, an ex-CIA funded muj leader who's family has business ties to President George W. Bush's family, in an impossibly ridiculous scheme, slams three planes into expensive American real estate killing several thousand Americans. After making a boilerplate speech about terrorism, the President isn't anywhere to be seen for 3 days. Then in a remarkable speech at the site, rallies the nation behind him. Support for the President is high and the nation wants the terrorists brought to justice. The administration then maps the attacks to Iraq and begins building a case to invade.

    Benghazi - After a largely successful operation to oust terrorist Mommar Gaddafi from power in Libya, conservatives go into overdrive to marginalize or criticize the effort. As a whole conservative politicians are engaged in dangerous story telling about the Arab Spring in general that in one particular case puts Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at risk evidence by an attack on her motorcade in Egypt. The US establishes an Embassy in the fledgling nation which is attacked on 9/11. During the attack, Candidate Romney releases press statements that indicate this is a "failure" of President Obama's foreign policy. Intelligence indicates that the attack may have come from a demonstration and the President relates that..as well as calling it an act of terror. Conservatives launch the theory that the President is "lying" and hint that there might be a collusion between the terrorists and the administration.

    Reactions to Terrorist Attacks: A Tale of Differences.'


    The Obama Administration lied thru it's collective teeth about the Bengazi terrorist attack to appease the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Hell to pay.

    For the first time in history..an American Presidential Candidate uses a foreign crisis to score political points, while it's on-going.

    That sets a very dangerous precedent.

    Well the major difference becomes:

    Conservatives use such events to focus anger at foreign enemies when a President they approve of is in power, and focus anger at the President, when they don't like who's in power.

    Liberals rally around the American President, no matter who is in power to get the enemy.
