Will truth of Benghazi Murders determine battleground states election choice

Obama's election firewall is melting like a house of wax all over America. States like Florida, Virginia, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin where President Obama's election machines had once appeared impregnable are now crumbling. What is even more telling is that Ohio, the battleground of all battleground states is now fast becoming Obama's possible Waterloo.

According to many recent national polls, including results from Fox News Poll that was released Friday, October 19th, Obama's lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney is narrowing. The president's former lead of 49-42 percent from late September has dwindled to 46-43 percent. What appears even clearer is that the president's second debate performance, while well scripted at how to be evasive and fact challenged, and has not slowed Romney's growing momentum.

The stagnant economy, slow job growth, and annual trillion dollar deficits are no longer the current dominant key election issues. The growing White House cover up of how U.S. ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and 3 other Americans were murdered on September 11th at the American consulate in Benghazi is taking center stage. As more and more intelligence documentation, real time videos, and congressional documents are made public a bizarre and tragic web of deceit is being unearthed.

The White House and the president's campaign have stepped up their visits to Ohio and other battle ground states as well as their attacks on Romney. Their hope is that voters would ignore the facts that these murders were avoidable and preventable. But on Monday October 22nd, the last presidential debate should bring the truth of the Benghazi scandal and the unraveling of the administration's stonewalling into America's living rooms.

The presidential election stakes are much, much higher now. The administration's attempts to first throw the intelligence community, and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton under the bus, failed. Now the White House narrative and tangled terrorist assault storylines are unraveling, thanks to the recent congressional hearings on Capitol Hill.

Now, with the increasing surge by the Romney political machine, Obama and his campaign officials are even more nervous, because the president received no bump from the second presidential debate. In fact, on Saturday, the Real Clear Politics poll average for Ohio now had Obama ahead by only 2.5 percent, which is well within the margin of error. Its gets even worse. Now, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are now telling competing versions of the Libyan murders timeline.

Timing is everything, and with Foreign Affairs being on the table for the last debate, the White House is on lock down. It is refusing to honor requests for documents from congress that detail what the president knew, when he knew it and what action did he take. Fear that truth of possible evidence being covered up concerning pre and post attack terrorist activity by the White House could prove an administration cover up is in play.

What evidence could the administration be afraid of providing congress and the American voter before the election? Could it be proof that Ambassador Stevens desperately sent request after request to the State Department for more security, while terrorists linked to al-Qaeda steadily increased their attacks and assaults as late as August on the consulate?

Could it be evidence that the President decided to ignore in-person daily Security Council briefing. Will White House meetings records reveal that he either golfed or attended entertainment and Hollywood fundraisers on the lead up to the anniversary of the most horrific terrorist attack in the nation's history?

What is so important in the timeline which lead up the murders in Benghazi that Obama is afraid that voters will discover? What the administration possibly fears can be found in the recent Fox News video concerning the timeline that led up to the Benghazi tragedy. Examine the Benghazi timeline video yourself, not as a Romney supporter or an Obama supporter, but as an American who believes that the murders of four Americans by terrorists should not be in vain.

You will see that Ambassador Stevens made countless requests after request for additional security due to the growing attacks and threats by terrorist factions in Benghazi. The ambassador's requests were denied, and denied and denied again. Instead, the State Department and the administration told the now assassinated ambassador to make do, and make nice with the local Libyans in order to normalize relations with the locals as the al-Qaeda cells grow larger and more dangerous.

For the battle ground undecided as well as decided voter, the presidential election comes down to truth and honor, and will Obama display either at the debate on October 22nd. Will Obama look American voters in the eye and tell the nation what he knew, when he knew it and what actions did he take to prevent it? Or will the president seek another Candy Crowley like moderator performance from CBS Bob Schieffer to rescue him from admitting the truth about his administration's role in purposeful dissemination of misinformation.

As you watch the third debate in your homes, remember that the honor and integrity of the office of the presidency is at stake. Only you, the voter, can be the firewall to prevent the Obama White House from hiding the truth in order to steal an election. Don't allow the Administration to use scare tactics to misinform and use pundits like MSNBC's chief liberal sycophant Chris Matthews, convince you that it is unpatriotic to question and demand the truth from the president.

Instead, wisely consider the words of reflection from former President Theodore Roosevelt, before you cast your vote. He warned, "To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

In the battleground for the nation's future demand the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Freedom and liberty is neither free or has value if it is based upon a lie. Make truth your election choice on November 6th!
