    I don't think that this incident will have much impact on the election.  Too many people have now become immune to being terrorized by the exaggerated fears of terrorism, and I think that the instigators of this attack are not so much trying to show incompetence as they are associating it below the surface with the meme that Obama is a secret Muslim or Muslim sympathizer and therefore can't be trusted to protect from terrorists.

    And it's no coincidence that Romney's majority of "advisors" are neoconservatives.

    Obama made it unequivocally clear from the beginning that those responsible would be found and brought to justice.  I think the people are aware of that and won't let this incident interfere with their judgment.  Only those who are already adamantly opposed to his re-election will play this, and of course the corporate media.

    Chief neoconservative/fundamentalist allied belief: All things are possible if only you lie.
