As his Mideast policies crumble, Obama to go to the UN… to blame a movie

I was going to say “unbelievable,” but, really, it’s all too believable, the only way the schmuck knows how to act. His Middle East policies going up in flames, our embassies besieged, our diplomats murdered, and with credible evidence that we had prior warning, that security arrangements were incompetent, and that this was a pre-planned terrorist attack, President Obama reaches out for a scapegoat.

Only, this time, he’s going to do it in front of the entire world:

National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor previews the president’s speech to the UN General Assembly next week:

“UNGA always provides an opportunity for the President to put the international situation in context, and to put forward a vision of US leadership. I would certainly expect the President to address the recent unrest in the Muslim world, and the broader context of the democratic transitions in the Arab World.”

(…)

“As he has in recent days, the President will make it clear that we reject the views in this video, while also underscoring that violence is never acceptable…

Pathetic. He’s still equating a badly made video with murderous violence, in effect saying “We understand why this happened” and placing the blame on free speech, rather than on the perpetrators of the violence.  While almost everyone outside his administration acknowledges that the video was merely a pretext for something that had been in the works for at least weeks, possibly a revenge hit, the President of the United States is going to stand before the world and say “You’re right to be angry, but it wasn’t us! It was that guy over there! Didn’t you see us roust him for you in the middle of the night? Please don’t us!”

Utterly contemptible and craven. Washington, Adams, and Jefferson are spinning in their graves.

November can’t come fast enough.

    Obama belongs on the View, not as president of the United States. He’s a walking Joke that millions of clueless American will still vote for. God help us if he gets reelected.

    Nero…Obama… Rome… USA…. fiddles … burns. Not so long ago, this doofus of a President said something about a “lost decade”… well he has done nothing but made things worse, and it won’t even get better with him out of office for sometime, he has seen too it. When he talks about things being alot worse than he knew, well that is going to have to be Romney’s quote too, as it will finally be true, but the difference is Romney will get things done and fixed. – Lorica

  3. His visit to the UN is nothing more than a campaign stop. He will get a lot of free publicity alright but will not be speaking to a receptive nor sympathetic audience since by now they and the rest of the world (except for commiecrats) know he is just talking out his a*s, insulting everyone’s intelligence in the process. I never want to hear another word about respecting Obhammud simply because he holds the office he does. He and his bitter half have so denigrated the dignity of US President that it will take many years for our prestige as a nation to be repaired and restored.

    I think I heard my mom saying that she was contacted by Good Housekeeping to ghost write a cookbook for Barack and Michelle after they leave the White House next year. Maybe it was just a dream… But, to the topic: there is no leadership in this man’s skill set. It is truly awful to watch. It is not a video or a cartoon that inspires or fuels the hate of us by islamic radicals; it is, rather, that we still breath.

    He’s not blaming a movie…our apologizer-in-chief is blaming free speech!

    If the American people allow Obama to get away with this, and do not vote him out of office because of it, then we will get what we deserve.
    This should be a wake up call to all Americans,that Obama does not care about our murdered Ambassador and Navy Seals as he does about being the Apologizer In Chief.

    I suppose the Eastwood “empty chair” representation is appropriate. He is never at the WH. He is always flying around in Air Force 1 using millions of dollars of fuel and Secret Service protection so he can appear before his public. He believes he’s a SuperStar… and he has millions in this country believing it too. On Sunday, he admitted he knew some of the campaign ads were lies–he calls them vigorous exaggerations–but he’s totally comfortable with lies. And evidently, so is our MainStream Media. When the CEO of GE came out to say 0bama had no work ethic… I guess, that says it all. So… who is at the WH running things? Does anyone know? Does anyone care?

    It will be nice to experience having a man in the WH who doesn’t hate this country (Gov. Romney) Someone who believes in the greatness of America. I hate this POTUS more than ANY elected in my lifetime (and I’m an old person, you know, born when dinosaurs ruled)

    I am so sick of obummer, who is all in favor of free speech as long as it’s not offensive to Muslims. Puke. Get a clue, mr. muslim prez, they hate us. Period. They will always hate us. Period. Nothing we can do as a country will make them like us. It’s not like the school yard.

    I can see November from my house!!! It will be such a pleasure to vote for Romney/Ryan.

    This was a planned attack on 9/11; the video had been out for weeks. I worked at the World Trade Center for the landlord (Port Authority of NY&NJ), and never saw anything there that demeaned Islam or any religion, so why did we get bombed in 1993, and destroyed in 2001? These people want us dead, and no amount of appeasement will change them!

  10. CaMom says:

    I STRONGLY urge anyone who has not yet seen 2016 to find a theater where it’s playing, bring a few friends with you, and be prepared to NOT munch on any popcorn!! It’s Obama’s ‘World Plan’ in his own words – it’s absolutely frightening when you have all of his influences, all of his life experiences, all his comments and actions, right there on the screen in front of you. His plan for the world is so obvious, it makes you wonder just how much kool-aid one would have to drink to still support him.

  11. There is an old acronym in DC called OBE or “overtaken by events”. When Obhammud pontificates about the sloppy video (which I have seen) being the root cause of all the current Mideast street violence and murders, that story plus the succession of lies that follow are OBE. Everyone knows better, it seems, except those who should.

  12. Carlos says:

    Isn’t it obvious even to the most myopic of you out there that most of the trouble in the Middle East can be blamed directly on Bush, and that which can’t be can be traced back to some other former Republican president?

    Come on, folks, ya gotta keep up here – you’ve only had nearly 12 years for that one to sink in…

    WRT Obama: Those who can, do. Those who can’t go on the View.
