Four Americans murdered in Benghazi. Ho hum.
But a Youtube video about Islam? That's really bad.
Every now and then Barack Obama blurts out something that really opens the door to his soul.
Barack Obama characterized the consulate attack and four American deaths as “bumps in the road.”
“Well, I'd said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. The question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. I think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights– a notion that– people have- to be able to– participate– in– their own governance. But I was pretty certain and continue to be 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.”
Once again Obama put his callow and cold nature on display while appearing on Jon Stewart's Daily Show. He said Americans dying is “not optimal.”
President Barack Obama, during an interview shown on Comedy Central, has responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the Benghazi attack, by saying: 'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.'
Obama was speaking to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show for a programme that was broadcast last night. Stewart, a liberal whose young audience is full of potential voters prized by the Obama campaign, asked the president about his handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi attack.
At Breitbart Ben Shapiro notes that Obama had far more severe criticism for a Youtube video:
By way of contrast
, President Obama described the YouTube video “The Innocence of Muslims,” which had nothing to do with the Benghazi attacks, as “crude and disgusting,” an “insult,” and said that its message “must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.”
To reiterate: deaths of Americans are “not optimal,” and “bumps in the road.” A YouTube video is “bigotry,” “blasphemy,” “crude and disgusting,” an “insult,” and inhuman.
The left wing idiosphere seized and promptly and pathetically on Romney's “binders full of women” statement yet they somehow able to ignore these atrocious statements.
But the contrast in Obama's responses to the two events is stupefying.
The mother of Sean Smith, a US diplomat killed in the Benghazi attack, has taken exception to Obama's choice of words.
The mother of an American diplomat killed during a terrorist raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi has hit out at Barack Obama for describing the attack as 'not optimal', saying: 'My son is not very optimal – he is also very dead.'
During an interview shown on Comedy Central, Obama responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the assault by saying: 'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.'
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline today, Pat Smith, whose son Sean died in the raid, said: 'It was a disrespectful thing to say and I don't think it's right.
'How can you say somebody being killed is not very optimal? I don't think the President has the right idea of the English language.'
It says a lot about Barack Obama pays a visit to Comedy Central to explain an American tragedy, yucking it up along the way. This picture shows how distressed Obama is with the Benghazi fiasco.
