S-Ol’ Obama Hypocrite – 2

The dancing hypocrite takes his show to the stage – part 2

Obama did Jay Leno to roll out his thoughts on national security, Benghazi, and embassy closings. Did someone move the press room to NBC studios?…

In this episode, we find Hypobama grappling with heavy issues and scandals, which he and his administration created. But the fearless deceiver that he is opted for a high-profile visit, seeking low-info ears to reduce his increasing disapproval and criticism. Not to provide Jay with “the Beast” replica.

Q What do you say to those cynics who go, oh, this is an overreaction to Benghazi — how do you respond to that?
Hypobama: One thing I’ve tried to do as President is not over react, but make sure that as much as possible the American people understand that there are genuine risks out there. What’s great about what we’ve seen with America over the last several years is how resilient we are. So after the Boston bombing, for example, the next day folks were out there, they’re going to ball games. They are making sure that we’re not reacting in a way that somehow shuts us down.
And that’s the right reaction. Terrorists depend on the idea that we’re going to be terrorized. And we’re going to live our lives. And the odds of people dying in a terrorist attack obviously are still a lot lower than in a car accident, unfortunately. But there are things that we can do to make sure that we’re keeping the pressure on these networks that would try to injure Americans. And the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about when I go to bed is making sure that I’m doing everything I can to keep Americans safe.

Fine, if by genuine risks out there he meant internet videos, which they blamed for the terrorist attack. They’re on the trail of those anyway.

What’s great is our resilience. Yea, we’ve shown the ability to bounce back from 9/11, the Boston bombings, or his blunders like putting politics ahead of national security over the Benghazi attack, right?  Resilience was not the word I would use for that. Or how about our resilience over how Obama went to Libya in the first place — acting unilaterally without Congress. Or his strong support for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Actually, Mr. Obama, we don’t have that kind of resilience over those like you hoped.  So when the administration says Benghazi happened a long time ago, as old news, we don’t have the resilience to get past that messaging. It’s hard to bounce back, when a video was blamed for Benghazi our resilience comes up short.

When we question the chain of events that led to the attack, our resilience does not connect those dots, it needs some help. When the WH approved talking points do not match the events, we should be resilient. When the Sec. of State tells grieving family members that they’ll get the man who made the video, what resilience is needed to get over that?

Not reacting in such a way that shuts us down“.  No one was trying to shut down our security or defenses in Benghazi… except maybe the administration. Obama politicized our security and boasted al Qaeda was “on the run”. It was an integral part of his campaign message everywhere.  Then came Benghazi and, 11 months later, we don’t even know Obama’s whereabouts or what he did that night.

But I think the way we reacted with outrage in questioning it — determined to find out the truth — was the “right reaction”, contrary to his desire. I’m proud of that reaction. After Obama’s administration seeded our skepticism by telling us a false narrative, most of us reacted the way we should.(…despite media) Obama, however, reacted by criticizing us, changing his story and called it a phony scandal. Shall we compare proper reactions?

The last thing he thought about when he went to bed, after the attack, was “doing everything I can do to keep Americans safe” — after hardly paying attention to it, according to Leon Panetta. And the next morning he went to Vegas as planned.

Then, having had another terror attack on his watch in Boston, Obama compliments our reactions? In case he missed the immediate reaction to Boston, people wondered how the bombers slipped through the ever-watchful eyes of feds, not once but repeatedly?

Sure we reacted, in identifying the bombers because feds could not. And people reacted with bewilderment that Russia had warned us about Tamerlan Tsarnev, but feds pretty much cleared him. But thanks, Hypobama, for complimenting the vigilant reactions of people. Oh, people also reacted over trying 9/11 terrorists in NYC– another overlooked, prudent reaction.

But maybe it is really Obama’s reactions that are the problem?

4 dead, move along…. nothing to see here

The times, they are a changin’ – not.

In May 1970, shots rang out at Kent State, and the phrase “4 dead in O-hi-o” echoed from coast to coast. I remember it well. Americans wanted answers and they wanted them ASAP. Understandably so, what caused this and why? It did not go down easy. And some vowed they would not forget or let it be in vain and dismissed.

They recently celebrated another anniversary and they had Bill Ayers, of all people, give a keynote speech. And this speech came on the heels of Boston’s bombing, which conjured up visions of domestic terrorism in media from the onset, even reminiscent of the Weather Underground.

But Ayers could rest peacefully in his retirement from education because he nor the Weather Underground would be the whipping post. He later showed up to deliver that speech carefully trying to separate their deeds all those years ago with those of terrorists in Boston. The main difference is they were more successful. That part he could leave off.

Eight months ago, the heart of the nation was again struck by terrorism but overseas in a consulate in Benghazi, killing three heroes and our ambassador to Libya. It took place on September 11th, another key date for terrorism on our homeland. But it was also amidst a heated campaign and presidential election cycle — unfortunately for us and them. It was not the story we wanted to hear but that we needed to know.

It was sidelined and marginalized just after the pictures came in. It was a shocker all right. The greatest shock to come was how the story would be treated. The story shifted to one about an internet video almost no one knew anything about. Apparently things were so hot in Benghazi it would take time for even investigators to look into it. 4 dead in Benghazi read the report. That was about all we knew or would know for days.

But the White House and State department cranked up their talking points and were up to speed some 5 days later when they sent Susan Rice out to all major news outlets on a Sunday to spread the word far and wide: internet video = violent protest = RPG’s and mortars = death of four Americans, including our ambassador. 4 dead in Ben-gha-zi.

And when their bodies came home in coffins, amid a ceremony, Hillary vowed to the families they would get the guy who produced the video. 4 dead in Ben-gha-zi.

There were campaign stops to make, fundraisers that must go on, and a campaign to wage — not on the Benghazi culprits but for the incumbent president in his reelection bid. It’s a tough thing but choices apparently must be made, between security and terrorism time on Benghazi and winning an election. Elections rule, as everyone knows, and politics trumps terrorism in the end.

They always tell us elections have consequences…but so do campaigns, unfortunately for us. Too bad, 4 dead in Benghazi.

Flash forward, it would be months and countless attempts at truth-hunting hearings and investigation. The administration designated an investigator. But the story line was still little more than 4 dead in Benghazi. Hearings came around after troubling delays, Hillary with a concussion and all expected to testify on 4 dead in Benghazi. Finally, she did not fail to demonstrate both her passion and emotions saying “what difference, at this point does it make?” 4 dead in Benghazi.

You know,  I feel passionate enough to keep on saying 4 dead in Benghazi till we get anything resembling the truth about what happened and why, in as much as we haven’t received it from our government involved to their eyeballs  in its cover up.

It would be after 7 months to a question at the WH press briefing, to which Jay Carney would say, “Benghazi happened a long time ago”. As if we need reminding just how long it has been. But what we know is there are 4-dead-in-Benghazi.
