Tell your Republican friends to stop swift-boating the president about those emails

Emails released through the liberal media (Reuters!) suggest the president knew from almost the beginning that the attacks in Libya were planned acts of terrors.  Why does this matter? Because the GOP slime machine has been trying to convince us that the president denied this for weeks. And many of you have bought the lie, hook, line and sinker.

Unfortunately, this is swift boating, plain and simple. The president's story never changed, and from the first he was forthright about what had occurred  Here's what he said in his first interview after the attacks, on September 12:

You're right that this is not a situation that was—exactly the same as what happened in Egypt and my suspicion is that there are folks involved in this who were looking to target Americans from the start.

The next day, he said this:

A couple of days ago, for four Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Libya. ... So what I want all of you to know is that we are going to bring those who killed our fellow Americans to justice. I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished.

Does this sound like he was being deceitful? Does it sound like he thought the attacks resulted from a spontaneous protest that spun out of control?

And to be clear, I don't mind if Obama loses on the issues. But I am sick unto death of seeing the outcomes of our presidential elections determined by Republican whoppers. Don't let them get away with it.
