Obama on Hurricane:
'We Leave Nobody Behind'

Breitbart Big Peace, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/30/2012 6:05:01 PM

Today, during a non-campaign campaign stop at the Red Cross, President Obama told the nation something his administration obviously didn’t believe during the seven-hour attack on our consulate in Benghazi (and a nearby annex) on the night of September 11, 2012: That when an "American is in need… we leave nobody behind": This is a tough time for a lot of people; millions of folks all across the Eastern Seaboard, but America's tougher. And we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind,

President Fokes loves to steal the credit AND the slogans from the Navy SEALs.

He left 4 brave men to die in Benghazi and he says this. It's almost as if he's laughing in our face. This is sick.

Except when you're on the wrong side of obama and his agenda. There he goes again, leading from behind. No, Mr. Resident, that saying you stole was more appropriate on 9/11/12. It doesn't work so well for hurricanes. Coward.

You can not believe 0bama; he left four dead Americans behind in Benghazi. No security, no planes to defend and help them, and no reply to THREE separate pleas for help. 0bama is all talk.

If I recall corectly, four Americans were recently left behind in Benghazi. They were in DIRE need. Explanation please?

0bama could not see any political capitol in the Benghazi attack. In Sandy, he sees a long shot at reelection.

So if you're a nobody like me and all the other three hundred million plus people in These United States, we can expect to be left in the dust while you toodle off to Las Vegas and all the other campaign destinations to collect your blood money from the other "somebodys". Umscay!

BENGHAZI
(To the tune of Neil Young's "Ohio")

Fine soldiers and Obama NOT coming,
We're regrettably on our own.
This Fall I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Benghazi

Gotta get down to it
Terrorists are cutting us down
Should have been helped long ago.
What if you knew him
And found him dead on the ground
How can you hide what you know?

Gotta get help with it
Terrorists are cutting us down
Should have been rescued long ago.
What if you knew him
And found him dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Fine soldiers and Obama NOT coming,
We're horribly on our own.
This fall I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Benghazi !!!!!!

Of course hurricane Sandy was a devastating storm, leaving many people in dire circumstances. However, we must NEVER forget Benghazi, where four brave Americans were murdered and our government lied to us, and continues to lie, regarding what really happened.

Folks seem to have forgotten that were it not for the brave actions of two SEALS, over 30 more folks would have also died. They rescued a boatload of people. These guys epitomize all that is great about our military. It is truly heroic to leave a safe haven and run to the sounds of the cannons to rescue fellow Americans. RIP, brave souls !

This is nothing less than shameful at a level I can't even find words to describe. He can ignore the cries for help in Benghazi including from an American Ambassador and the three military men who gave their lives and say, "We leave nobody behind" to exploit the military and steal their words to help himself? This man is the personification of pure evil...a man who despises America and everything that should be sacred to the POTUS. May God have mercy on his soul.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.

The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
