The Absentee Commander in Chief
Wall Street Journal, by William Kristol & Peter Wehner

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/11/2013 5:23:53 AM

We´ve both had the honor to work in the White House. We´ve seen presidents, vice presidents, chiefs of staff and national security advisers during moments of international crisis. We know that in these moments human beings make mistakes. There are failures of communication and errors of judgment. Perfection certainly isn´t the standard to which policy makers should be held. But there are standards. If Americans are under attack, presidential attention must be paid. Due diligence must be demonstrated. A president must take care that his administration does everything it can do.

This president failed to do his duty. What else is new? It wasn´t the first time for Barack Obama and won´t be the last unless congress decides to do its duty and impeach him, then remove him from office.

I could imagine what was going through the minds of the two brave men trying to fight off the terrorists. At some point, they must have known that their country turned it´s back on them. What horror!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As someone so wittily but truthfully said, why should Obama help Americans in need? - after all, they aren´t his countrymen.

FTA "Not a single presidential finger was lifted to help Americans under attack."

This should be a Must Read. What was Preezy doing? Did he have to get to bed early because he was going to Vegas in the morning? Obama went beddy-byes, Americans died.

So, Obama screwed up, then lied to the American people about how he went Rambo, then bled down the clock to the election covering up his less-than-manly leadership. The answer was obvious to most engaged conservatives that there was a problem in Benghazi. The lowinfo types were angry that they might need to learn some new geographic spot, and were disturbed that all this nonsense might distract from news about how Michelle is so similar to Jacqueline Kennedy.
Lets listen to a real man who happens to be black, Dr Ben Carson. Do not be afraid to talk about this to your lowinfo neighbors.

This entire administration would have us believe that only email were received requesting additional security, backup, and plea´s for help during the Benghazi attack.

I think not.

If for no other reason than it is an excellent summary of the dereliction of duty by our so called Commander in Chief.

The twitterpated media is in large part responsible for this as they enabled this nothing of a man to jive his way into the presidency, unvetted and unknown. Combine that with an ignorant, celebrity-bewitched electorate and Chicago-land, thug politics and what a disaster.

Who would have believed that less than 10 years after 9/11, Americans would elect this nothing to the presidency. America´s enemies must be over the moon with happiness. Who would have thought it would be so easy?

From the beginning, I´ve been afraid that Obama and his goons would bring us to war. This is worse than the Neville Chamberlain period in UK history. At least back then, there was a Churchill waiting in the wings. Who does America have waiting in the wings?

I don´t know how we come out of this.

Candy Crowley is complicit.
Romney was right in the debate, Crowley cut him off at the knees publicly by agreeing with the lie Obama told about Benghazi.
Romney was too trusting, he knew Obama would lie, but didn´t expect Crowley to vocally support the lie in front of millions on live TV.
Call her in and see why she lied, Senators.

#19 I would add a few more sentences. Where was Hilary and maybe it´s time for impeachment proceedings. We do know where Obama and Hilary were for that 3 am phone call. No where to be found. I hope the next person who runs for President, and if Hilary runs, that person reminds everyone what she does for that phone call. And if Ann Crawly is there denying it, to call her on that.

Kristol and Wehner did fine until the last paragraph. They paint an accurate (and damning) picture of POTUS´s complete disregard and inaction during the Benghazi raid,then end by saying, "Is it too much to ask" that this POTUS regret his treasonous lapse, or "instruct his aides" not to let it happen again"? Really? That´s all? We´re just going to hope in this man who has given us hundreds of audacious reasons not to hope? Come on guys. Finish what you start.

The affirmative action president and his cabinet secretaries who are held to a very different standard (and much lower - practially non existent)then their predecessors, espcially those with an R after their names.

So where is the "loyal opposition" in all this? And at the end of the day, or in this case, end of the voting day last November - What difference does it make? Obama got re-elected and Hillary put herself in position for 2016.

Obama is a disgrace to the office of the Presidency. He has sown division at every opportunity. He wants us at each others throats because it keeps his base engaged. He is an agitator. He is a bully. He is a consummate liar. He is arrogant and self focused. He is totally unsuited for a position of power because he believes in any means to an end no matter what the consequences which makes him extremely dangerous. He is totally unworthy of the office he holds. He has the mindset of a community organizer, always stirring the pot, creating unrest and envy. Worst of all, he has no empathy for others and that is why he could so easily ignor Bemghazi. What President could go to bed when Americans were under fire and calling for help? And yet, the media still worships and defends him.

#27, I don´t know if that was a typo or a pun - snorting, as in cocaine?

In a sane world, congress would haul his butt up to Capital Hill and ask him point blank - where were you, what were you doing, who gave the order to stand down and why did you and your cabinet members lie to the entire world about the attack for weeks, causing riots and death in countries all over the globe? They would grill him until he broke and then suit him up in orange, handcuff him and throw him UNDER Leavenworth.

The failure suggests another, more awful possibility. The President did not want to stop the attack. The question is why. "He hates us" is not the answer. Purpose is the answer. He was willing to risk huge political embarrassment because of an overriding purpose. Likely it is because the existence of this intelligence outpost had become some sort of liability. Letting Ambassador Stevens die was worth the price of eliminating that liability. Perhaps having him die was even the purpose. The reason is yet to be discovered.

Let us not forget that wasn´t just Obama who was MIA. The boss of those diplomats, Hillary Clinton was never heard from during the crisis. Where was she? The State department has said that they watched and were in contact with the Benghazi personnel in real time. Why was Clinton not in the loop and in contact with the WH? Why did she not contact the Pentagon for military assistance? That is dereliction of the highest order.

And as for the CIC, when sovereign America is under attack and being overrun by foreign nationals intent upon murdering our Ambassador, and that Ambassador is in real time contact and pleading for help, the CIC declines to act and then leaves the room and goes to bed, impeachment is the only recourse a responsible congress has.

If congress does not act on this obscene high crime and misdemeanor, our Republic is lost.

Is there any doubt left that president putz is merely a figurehead? He´s the big-eared face of a sham minority potus that the liberals can prance about like a cartoon character in a parade while the "man behind the curtain" writes obamacare to enrich cronies, demolishes the military, kills the economy and channels taxpayer money to liberal causes while letting the working American continue to sink into the quicksand. A more accurate question for the night of 9/11/12 was where was valerie jarrett and the old cigar smokers of the senate? Obama was doing exactly what he was supposed to do, staying out of adult business.

Stinky´s experience as a community organizer (read shakedown artist) gave him no preparation for a situation like Benghazi or any attack on our beloved nation. The night of the attack, he probably put on his bunny PJs, jumped into bed and pulled the covers over his head.

The other day, Glenn Beck expressed his take on Obama´s "absence", and I think it has some merit. The idea is that more is about to come out about that night and about the Benghazi operation as a whole, and when it does it will be so harmful to the administration that Obama would rather claim ignorance (by not being present and, therefore, unaware of what his underlings had been up to) than be exposed as being a part of the operation. In other words, his underlings will be the fall guys for all the gun-running and whatever else was going on because Obama himself was "unaware" and it was done without his approval. It must be worse than we´ve even imagined for him to rather be excoriated for being MIA than exposed as part of their sinister, treasonous Benghazi operation. Personally, I find it hard to imagine that Obama cares one whit what anyone thinks, however!

Yep, this prez should be impeached. But this congress will not go there! Congress never does it´s job anymore. They have become irrelevant!

So, impeach congress! When the new one is installed, stop all payments to congress people of the past that did not do their job.

Put your foot down people.

TREASON: Not exactly absent. Emails /witness confirm Obozo gave three stand down orders to the nearest military over 7 hours until he had murdered the 4 .. He then relieved 2 flag officers in theater (Generals) who tried to do something to help those at Benghazi... Benghazi was not a consult but a gun running CIA operation for Libya guns thru Turkey to Syria rebel terroist. Obozo wants your guns but he gives weapons to terroist.. IMPEACH

So, just where WAS he, afterall? Did anyone try to reach him again during the night? Was he in the family quarters, or ...was he somewhere else, engaged in ...?

The "mainstream" media are our mortal enemy.

Even during the Clinton years they at least covered, ever so slightly, the scandals permeating the Clinton Admin., including the infamous stained dress, although they dismissed the tawdry Monica events as "just about sex" and involving his "personal life."

Here we have four men brutally murdered. Technically, this was a terrorist attack on US soil. He flits off to Las Vegas the next day.

Where was he after 5pm 9/11?
Did they call him again? Were they AFRAID to? Why?

Why are the media so uncurious? How can they live with themselves, being such toadies, such brown-nosers?

There are some in the Senate pursuing this. And we have got to call them and encourage them.

This is not rocket science. You can look it up on wikipedia right now. Whatever Wiki´s probs they have some pretty good posts. You will find as I did,that the the ambasador "service´ andembassies wre in Tripoli. There are 70 embassies there. so why would a back-water like Benghazi have an ambassador level contact? Right there in wiki- the Transitional Council (for liberation of Libya)was there. This was the group of forces that we armed thru the UN and the NATO to fight against Kadaffi.
So when did the re-armmambent of Transitional council stop? Was Amabassador Stevens reaally in Turkey dealing with "refugees" from Syria? Why him.

Perfection certainly isn´t the standard to which policy makers should be held.

Funny, it´s the standard to which you hold all commissioned military officers regardless of their rank. Hmm, isn´t that weird?

But there are standards.

And they move wherever necessary to protect the politicians´ hairless backside.

In a crisis, the president went AWOL.

Except for one of the many times you were,including chalice-apalooza, name any time at all he has not gone AWOL.

And we learned one other thing: Messrs. Panetta and Dempsey both knew on the night of the assault that it was a terrorist attack.

So silly, so full of your elitist brilliance that your own love of yourself just oozes through the laptop screen. We Bible thumpin´, gun totin´ hicks here in flyover country KNEW it was a terrorist attack as soon as we heard about it ON 9-11-2012. And to think we figured it out without access to the geniuses you hang out with. Go figure.

I agree with poster # 28.
It was a good article until the last paragraph.
" And that he has resolved, and instructed his senior staff,
to take care that he not be derelict in his duty
as commander in chief ever again? "
This has to be sarcasm.
Obama spoke to the media at some point after the Benghazi slaughter
and his phrase that he
sprung into action
" as soon as I was made aware " immediately jumped out at me .
It seems ( until Panetta blurted the truth after
being hammered by Lindsey Graham ) that Obama was setting up his aides to take the fall for not informing him.
Let us not forget that Obama was also MIA during a domestic terror attack.
Dec 25 , 2009 a Nigerian trained by Al Queda tried to blow up a NWA airliner by igniting a bomb in his underwear.
Obama " was not made aware of this " until hours after it happened.
And then it took him a further period of time to order
any action to safeguard air travel.
And then he went to the gym-seriously.
Dec 25, 2009
" White House spokesman Bill Burton said Friday that Obama, on vacation in Hawaii,
was informed of the incident about ...three ....hours.... after.... the plane landed.
Obama.... then.... held a conference call with Homeland Security and counter-terror adviser John Brennan
and NSC chief of staff Denis McDonough.
Burton said that in a..... subsequent........ call,
Obama “instructed that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel.”

To me the video lie was far worse than "I have never had sex with that woman." This was a blatant cover up and showed total disrespect to the four Americans who died using a concocted idiotic story. As for the the irresponsible press, they should be fined and censored for this.

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:19:38 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
