WH: Obama ´Is Not Particularly
Concerned´ Whether Susan Rice
Misled the American People

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/28/2012 3:04:20 PM

In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration´s mishandling of Benghazi raises "core questions of basic competency," press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama "is not particularly concerned" about whether Susan Rice misled the American people: "What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no,

Comments:
Amazing. The neverending arrogance of 0bama is just stunning. He´s not particularly concerned about anything but himself and his abuse of power. And we get four more years of it.

Do I believe Obama said that?

Of course he did. And he probably followed it up with, "Hey, we won. We can do what we want, can´t we? Oh, the Constitution? Nevermind. We won, didn´t we? And when is my Tee time for tomorrow?"

Nor is anybody else expressing concern. What a sorry comment on our citizens. What I see as an offense worthy of execution others see as "no big deal". I suppose that is why anyone with any power seems to imagine they are above the consequences of their actions. There isn´t that much power in all the world. The Necktie Party is being organized.

Why should he worry about anytning? He could right now get away with ANYTHING and no one would want to throw him out. It is the most amazing thing I have ever heard. Chavez has nothing on him. The leader in Egypt has nothing on Obama. They are all doing what they want and there is nothing the American people can or will do about it because everyone is afraid of the man and his followers. America is over.....

Of course he isn´t concerned, it was his lie and he authorized her to tell it.

He would only be concerned if it made him look bad. Unauthorized truth that make him look bad will get him VERY concerned. Just ask any whistle-blowers from Fast and Furious.

I sure hope Rants Pants will get another turn as RNC chairman. He will know what to do about this sort of thing.

I´m not that surprised that EVERY check and balance mechanism has been neutered or circumvented. That control for responsive, LEGAL, government went out the window when the filthy politicians were able to create laws that didn´t apply to them. What should terrify every non government citizen is the fact that the Republican opposition is either blackmailed or too afraid to act on ANY of this administrations blatant crimes. ALL of this is just fine with a media that created the most bizarre President ever.

Judgment Day is going to be a real eyeopener for Obama and all his cronies!

Susan Rice sacrificed her intelligence/believeability! She will no longer be trusted/admired. She sold her soul and one day will regret it.

America has denigrated our stature in the world by the conniving and dishonesty of this administration. Sadly, we are reaping the consequences.

We still have "In God we Trust" on our money. Hold fast that reality!

We have allowed/encouraged abortions, gay rights/marriage, all against God´s Way and He will have the last word - sadly, being - Depart from Me, for I never knew you! Hell is hot and confined!

Pray for America!

Entitlents have/will continue to destroy the land we love, where many fought/died for the freedom we take for granted.

Pray for America!

Don´t let Obama and all those who bow at his throne take away what Almighty God has given US - Freedom!

This election was stolen! We will reap the consequences - again!

I still think the parents of those who died because Obama did not act immediately, should sue him and the country and let there be a free trial where "all" the evidence will be forthcoming and we, the people, will see for ourselves who is in control!

Again, pray for America! God blessed US and we took Him for granted. No more! Make a stand for righteousness!

You can bet that Obama is not going to be particularly concerned about much going forward besides his progressive agenda. He is probably laughing like hell at the Republicans, Fox News, and others who are all wound up about what Susan Rice said on those news shows, as Obama said they should come after him, as you can be sure that he either told her what to say, or someone else in his crew did, and in the end nothing is going to be done about all that. That is the way it is going to be for the next four years.

The election was stolen via voter fraud in states which do not require voter ID and in states which allow "early" (and often) voting, and through rigging of electronic voting machines, for starters.

Obama is not concerned about the deaths and torture of four white Americans, so he sends out a woman of color to lie about the Benghazi attack.

There is one reason and only one reason why no one is ever criticizing the massive incompetence of BO and his entire administration. He is black. End of discussion.

He and every one around him is the sheer proof of the utter failure of affirmative action and how totally unqualified people with no experience, knowledge or skills can achieve amazing power.

Since he knows that no one can touch him he can say to the nation "I do not give a (&(*&^ if I or any one else lied. Whatcha gonna do ´bout it? Nuttin´. ´Cause I be black."

The ME despots, tyrants, lunatics and barbarians must be in orgasmic heaven with this incompetent baffoon at the helm.

When another 9/11/2001 hits us again (and it will), he will take the position that it is the fault of the Americans and Jews.

He and his hideous wife probably danced the la la la dance on that day. You know "the most beautiful sound in the world."

so the rest of us can rail all we want and it´s to the wind. stock up on food, water, medicine and get a gun. that´s what i´m doing. still in shock that romney lost. 2 lousy percent. where the hell were those 2%?

Look at all the attention paid to 2016. First, Obama is goingto get the22nd Amendment scotched-then he canrun again..
And which GOPer would you want torun against him. which would be the designated loser of that go-around.
Second The congress passed all that lousy legislation leading to the so-called fiscal cliff. One of the GOP could prepare a bill in the House to cancel or repeal it and sent it to the Senate. The Congress acts like the legisalation came from King George III and nothing they can do. Even Chief Justice Roberts told Congress to clean up their act and re-do what they don´t like, maybe he was right.

Reid Stands by Bundy Remarks: They’re

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed. They had practice, they

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would nominate Sylvia

Every year the White House hosts an Easter egg roll, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are trying to get the White House to use plastic eggs instead of real, hard-boiled ones with a new campaign specifically targeting First Lady Michelle Obama. And a big part of the campaign is a video PETA put online featuring little girls telling Obama they’re not mad, just “disappointed.” The little girls try to convince her to break tradition, asking, “If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge, would you?” and asking her to put herself in the shoes of the chickens that had to lay all those thousands and thousands of eggs.

Pentagon Moves to Block Russian
Spy Plane in American Skies

The Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. military and American intelligence agencies have quietly pushed the White House in recent weeks to deny a new Russian surveillance plane the right to fly over U.S. territory. This week, the White House finally began consideration of the decision whether to certify the new Russian aircraft under the so-called “Open Skies Treaty.” And now the question becomes: Will the spies and generals get their way? As the United States and Russia face off publicly over Ukraine, behind the scenes, President Obama’s national security cabinet is having its own quiet feud over a

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

Conservative leader and Catholic L. Brent Bozell III today blasted Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for mimicking the pope´s Holy Week foot-washing tradition while touting her immigration reform legislation: "I am a Catholic and I am offended at Minority Leader Pelosi´s continued abuses of the Catholic Church´s teachings and traditions. As a Catholic who has watched Ms. Pelosi champion one anti-Catholic cause after another, I believe this to be sacrilegious. "Christ taught the washing of the feet as an act of utter humility, while she turned a sacred religious tradition into a grandstanding political publicity stunt.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

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

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. 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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
