Worse? The O not knowing he lost the debate until 24 hours later or two weeks for a terrorist attack
Obama was walking around thinking he had won the debate with Mitt Romney for at least 24 hours after he got shellacked. It took at least two weeks for him to admit that Benghazi was a terrorist attack on 9-11. A cover-up, just plain ignorance or just more of Obama deluding himself and trying to delude the American public.. Your call.
Judging from the look on Obama's face and on Michelle's face following the debate, they both knew he blew it. But in keeping with his inability to accept criticism he recovered and decided he won after all. It was easy to do because he only talks to people who sing his praises and who would follow him into the Gates of Hell. As for the attacks on our consulate, for him all it meant was that his campaign momentum would be hurt. Everything is about him and never about us.
Well, he did immediately fly off to Las Vegas to campaign after our people were slaughtered in Libya. He does have his priorities ya know? Even as they are as screwed up as a soup sandwich.
"Everything is ... never about us." Ain't that the truth! He and Hillary could care less about "us"or the truth! Hillary didn't even care about her own ambassador's safety, on 9/11 to boot.. They are all and only about themselves. Two peas in a pod.
Obama has a shiny surface. Many people are fooled by that. No doubt you know some like him, glossy on the skin, hollow within.
It's human nature to give too much credit to the superficially attractive. Obama tends to be taken more seriously than he should be. He is a cardboard cutout with a hinged jaw, the strings of which are held in the hands of others.
He said it himself during his first race for the presidency. If you want to know what the Obama machine is all about, don't look at him. Look at the people around him.
He himself had made no judgment on the outcome of Debate I until his handlers had discussed the political implications, taken a position they thought would be most advantageous, and told him what to think. He may believe he is the smartest man in the room and the best orator on the circuit, but that is just egotism. He is not particularly bright or talented at all, but for putting on a good show. He is merely a shiny object, a front man.
The media gave him a pass in 2008. The voters elected an unknown. He never had to show the public who he is, and he never let us see behind the curtain. The reason for that is not that he is hiding extremism or other threatening secrets there. It is that there is nothing there to see. He is a slick Chicago machine pol, nothing more. After Debate I and all the hubris-driven blunders of his administration, the latest being his handling of the Benghazi attack, those who still insist he is a brilliant leader are in denial.
The oration comes from a teleprompter so he can think what he wants. Without that crutch he mumbles a lot. Go see 2016 Obama's America if you haven't and take some friends with you of either political party. It is a good look behind the curtain.
Perhaps Obama is of this generation who believe every player should get a trophy just for showing up?
I think he actually thought he could declare himself the winner of the debate and that would make it so. Surprisingly, about 25% agreed with him and they also thought he won the debate. Surely they weren't watching the same debate the rest of us watched? We can only hope this 25% don't really go to the polls and vote.
The hearings going on at congress have already revealed that Benghazi lack of security was shear stupidity on Hillary's part and she is already doing what she can by having a press conference (excluding Fox) to make it clear she didn't agree with the spin the white house put on it. The truth remains only Hillary (or Obama) could have sent Rice out to lie 5 days after they knew the "video" had NOTHING to do with it and they both have tons of motive to lie and/or cover up what really happened because of the White House pinning Obama's re-election on his fabricated foreign policy "successes" (ha ha) and Hillary's total failure as Secretary of State (no US ambassador has been killed since 1979) . Under their watch the US reputation across the world is undeniably the worst it's ever been in history and the terrorist threat to the US is greater than it's been since 9/11/2001 as Al Queda grows in Iraq, Afghanistan and now throughout the countries of the "Arab Spring" as they embrace the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama and Hillary are likely now to each be throwing the other under the bus to salvage what's left of their pathetic legacies because their current careers are ending.
The question that needs to be answered to hit the "Bingo" is who sent the UN Ambassador out there on all those talk shows with the film clip spin when it was obvious from the get-go to the people on the ground that terrorists attacked them.
We'll never know for sure because whoever made that decision they both had to know about it and approve of it. If this scandal doesn't tip the election to Romney (the liar according to Obama), nothing will.
It was worse for the nation for Obama to not know he lost on spinning the Benghazi terrorist attack as a spontaneous protest that got violent. Our nation's response to such attacks has rammifications on perception overseas--in this case, America being seen as weak *invites* more Islamic attacks. It was worse for himself that Obama did not realize he'd lost the Denver debate with Romney. It will affect how he prepares for the next debates. Hate for the 'rich white oppressors' is blinding. Michelle may be letting this hate show here in this photo. (Website for this image of Michelle Obama before and after Denver Debate is fireandreamitchell.com)
Of course she's upset. Michelle is being put before the public now to build voter acceptance for 2016. Her future as a potential president is on the line here. If BO loses, she loses along with him.
Well if OB wins or loses she is still authentically black as Al Sharpton would say.
LOL! It never crossed my mind that she would aspire to be president, but it could be that she does.
I don't understand how anyone can support this Administration in light of their outright lies and deception regarding the attack in Libya. They are now trying to claim that they NEVER linked the video to the attacks. Say what?! I guess we were all under some sort of group delusion as they came out time and time again and tried to blame some obscure video. Worse, far worse, is that these people requested, over and over, additional security and were not only denied it but told to stop asking for it.

The Benghazi cover-up (attempted cover-up) was and continues to be deliberate.
His debate debacle was "honest" on his part. I'll bet he still thinks he won.
Best part was Michelle comin' for him. Bet he doesn't get any for a LONG time...
Hmmm...I'd say the terrorist attack taking 2 weeks to acknowledge when thee & me & anyone with more than carrot dust between his ears had very early access to the information that RPG's and mortars were used in the attack.
Worse yet was Joe Biden throwing the intel community under the bus in the VP debate, claiming they were the ones who told the White House the attack was video related. I can't imagine the lowest level cryptologist being dumb enough to do that, ergo, they be lying once again.

for the Libya problem. I'm not sure which channel it was on. I'm in the office. If hubby was watching the TV last, it's on FOX. If I was watching last, it's on CNN.

When Romney caught Obama regarding "a terrorist act in Benghazi" and then pointed out the White House didn't make that known for 2 weeks.Tomorrows headlines will be buzzing.

If a Terrorist attack of similar magnitude to September 11th happened today, would America unite?Our nation politicizes everything; from sports, to television, to global migration, history, and now even natural disasters. The current environment of the nation is anti-police, anti-republican,...
