Obama’s ‘not optimal’ ‘bumps in the road’ attitude is destroying America

October 19, 2012

Our Dear and Glorious Leader, Barack Hussein Obama gave the American people a rare glimpse into the soul behind his facade last night during the taping of his 6th appearance on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show”.

Responding to Stewart’s point that the American people did not get an “optimal response” in the aftermath of the September, 11, 2012 terrorist attach on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the President of the United States replied:

“Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it. And what happens, during the course of a presidency, is that the government is a big operation and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it. Whatever else I have done throughout the course of my presidency the one thing that I’ve been absolutely clear about is that America’s security comes, and the American people need to know exactly how I make decisions when it comes to war, peace, security, and protecting Americans. And they will continue to get that over the next four years of my presidency.”

If you live under an antiseptic rock outside the faculty lounge such lack of emotion and understanding regarding four American citizens being murdered at the hands of Islamic terrorists is quite an acceptable and appropriate response.

If you live anywhere else in America, you find such clinical callousness disgusting.

It is important to remember though that this is not inconsistent with the President’s earlier thoughts.  Just one day after the attack, Obama gave an interview to Steve Kroft of 60 minutes and said this when asked about the Middle East:

But I — I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty — pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because, you know, in a lot of these places, the one organizing principle has been Islam……….There are strains of extremism, and anti-Americanism, and anti-Western sentiment……There will probably be some times where we bump up against some of these countries and have strong disagreements but I do think that over the long term we are more likely to get a Middle East and North Africa that is more peaceful, more prosperous and more aligned with — with our interests.   (Full transcript here.)

However, the President’s disdain for dealing with dead Americans and their family members does not start with the Benghazi attack.

The historical record sadly shows that no matter how solemn the occasion should be, Obama somehow finds a way to make it always about him.

From the form letters and questions surrounding his signature on condolence letters, to his outright SNUBBING of the wishes of the families of fallen Seal Team members, to STILL classifying the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence” rather than the cowardly act of terrorism that it was, Barack Hussein Obama, has time, after disgusting time, shown his complete disregard for the sacrifice of others and the feelings of the family they left behind.

Harsh words, yes, but how else to describe such dereliction of duty and the complete and utter abandonment of American citizens and their families during their most devastating time?

And for you libs lurking about, don’t even start the “but he’s our President” and we should “respect” him because of the office.

I always have, still do, and always will respect the “office” of the Presidency but when it comes to it’s current occupant I side with the Frank Luntz focus group guy after the 2nd debate Tuesday night:

“He’s lied about everything. He lied to get elected in 2008 that’s why I voted for him. I bought it. Bull. And, he’s lied about everything. He hasn’t come through on anything. And he’s been bullsh*tting the public.”

Any questions?

One Response to Obama’s ‘not optimal’ ‘bumps in the road’ attitude is destroying America

    Geoff,nIt is really simple. Obama took over major problems but he KNEW what those problems were both internationally and domestically. He asked for the job pure and simple.nBut look at where we are four years later. The problems are by and large worse than when he took office, domestically and internationally. His solutions have FAILED to produce results acceptable to most Americans.nThat does not mean is a “bad” man, or does not have the best interests of the country at heart. It simply means that his approach has not worked. You, me and others now want someone else to give it a shot.nCall it hope and change, again, if you like.nAnson
