Obama Press Conference:
Stonewalls on Benghazi,
Petreaus, Pushes Tax Hikes

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/14/2012 2:40:05 PM

Today, President Obama held his first press conference in five months. It was a bizarre mix of softball questions from his press sycophants, false righteous indignation from the president over his administration’s Benghazi failures and lies, and an oddly blustery position shift on tax hikes as opposed to tax loopholes. Obama opened his press conference with his usual patter about class warfare and the fiscal cliff, insisting on raising taxes first and foremost. Then a reporter asked him about whether he knew about the Petraeus investigation – or whether he should have known.
Headline resplit by staff.

Comments:
He was obnoxious, peevish and arrogant, like he always is. His indignation over the question about Susan Rice is just pathetic.

FTA: "Obama then added, “Immediately upon finding out our folks were in danger, my order to my national security was to do anything they needed to do to keep Americans safe.”

This is the most damning comment to himself that 0bama let slipped out. It makes it very clear to me that HE WAS NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY of the crisis & ´´knew´´ in plenty of time to save some, if not all the personnel lost in Benghazi. He´s preparing to throw whoever is left under bus to protect himself over this scandal [failure of leadership].

Not mentioned here was an earlier question about national security leaks. How were we ´´told´´ that there were three terrorist being held the night of the 9/11 attack? It wasn´t from any White House source & we know Paula Broadwell had access to classified military documents, which she took home. And, then mentioned in a speech after the murders of Ambassador Stevens & the three other men.

As far as he is concerned he owes us nothing. The idiots who voted him back in have given him cover for the next four years and he will take advantage of it. He will smile, lie through his teeth and act offended if anyone actually asks him a tough question. My God, what have we turned into?

It is official, we have a full blown tyrant in the White House. I have NEVER heard a more disrespectful president in my life. And I´ve heard them all since the 1960s. It will only go down hill from here.

Where the h*ll are the Republicans? A bunch of spineless...

The primary reason he refuses any comment on the Benghazi mess is that he knows Gen P is going to testify shortly on that subject and the General will tell the truth.

As for taxes, the Republicans have been taking a beating for years defending the Hollywood crowd, Wall Street and the multi-million earners in sports - most of whom support the Democrats, especially the black president. Wake up Republicans!!! Agree with the Man and let him take the credit for punishing his friends and move on.

Don´t put to much faith in Petreaus telling truth. He´s already lie once about the video. I doubt he will admit perjury. He also doesn´t want to screw up his bribe to work at a college that also employs Van Jones.

There´s not much we can hope for from Obama, but if he continues to limit himself to only one press conference every five months it would be beneficial.

Following his mention of tax increases today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 150 points. Since the DJIA hasn´t risen a single day since Obama´s re-election, maybe we should start calling it the DOWN Jones Industrial Average.

The parents of those who lost their lives in Benghazi need to file a suit against President Obama and "let the chips fall where they may"! He has stonewalled this long enough and needs to be held accountable. They need to hire someone who is willing/able to stand up to the Socialist in the White House.

This has gone on long enough.

Also, the media needs to be called in to testify and this could open up the eyes of Americans to exactly who we have in the White House. Perjury does challenge them to be honest "for the first time"!

Pray for America! Almighty God is willing to become involved, if only we invite Him in. He is the Truth and the Light and He knows exactly what happened and why!

The truth will set US free. Amen

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
