“Obama compares his campaign volunteers to embassy staff killed in Libya”

  “Obama, during his talk with the volunteers,described his visit to the State Department today. “I had a chance to go to the State Dept.

“More fundamentally, the search for political alignments is a dishonest attempt to create a
negative impression in the minds of the American populace. Correlation does not equal.causation. Even assuming that these reports of Tea Party allegiances were correct (which they
