How dare anyone suggest that he, or anyone in his administration, would not make the security of the Americans in the Benghazi Consulate a highest priority?
How dare they indeed.
With each passing day it becomes increasingly clearer that the only “priority” in the president’s life is getting re-elected so he can spend more time on the golf course.
Accounts of the attacks in
Healthcare: According Joe Biden it was a big F-ing deal! But, then again, maybe the American people should be offended.
Why should we be offended? After all, didn’t healthcare need to be fixed? Yes, it did, but there was something more crucial happening at the time. People were hurting. They needed jobs. Families were struggling to make ends meet, yet the president chose to waste the first year of his presidency passing a bill that nobody read in a form that a majority of Americans rejected while the economy continued to tank. We, the people, are offended, Mr. President.
Osama bin Laden is dead: Yes he is, and now he is shark food at the bottom of the ocean. That’s a good thing.
Why should we be offended? Because if you look at the picture taken in the war room at the time of siege in
Later bin Laden’s death became a primary theme at the Democratic convention. Obama spiked the football on more than one occasion and dared us to believe that the decision was the most critical of his term in office. We, the people, are offended, Mr. President.
Appearances on television: Barack Obama is arguably the most likeable president in decades. He has charm and charisma and Americans love that fact that as a man of the people, he is one of us.
Why should we be offended? You have a job to do Mr. President. You were elected to protect the American people, to keep our country secure, to be a conduit with other heads of state and to represent us in a dignified, diplomatic manner.
You were not elected to hob nob with George Clooney, play basketball with Michael Jordan, mug for the women of “The View” and chit chat with David Letterman while ignoring an opportunity to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel about a major global crisis. You were not elected to be likeable. We, the people, are offended, Mr. President.
Why should we be offended? We have yet to get the true story from the White House. For days they said the assault was the result of a YouTube video.
Perhaps most disrespectful was that on the very day the president made his Libyan comments at the White House, he made a beeline afterward to fly to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. We, the people, are offended, Mr. President.
Debates: There were four opportunities for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to come clean with the American people and outline their goals for the next four years.
Why should we be offended? In the first debate the president was so arrogant in his debating skills that he underestimated his opponent and barely prepared for the event. Partly because he is lazy and partly because his narcissism makes him believe he is always the most intelligent person in the room.
After his failure in Debate #1, Obama sent Vice President Biden to make a mockery of the proceedings in the second debate by distracting Paul Ryan and attempting to obfuscate the sorry details of their failed administration.
Despite efforts to the contrary in the remaining two debates, facts checkers found significantly more informational distortions on the part of the president than challenger, Mitt Romney. The president has lied to the American people throughout his term in office. He has resorted to petty, insignificant, meaningless, repetitive untruths throughout the election campaign. We, the people, are offended, Mr. President.
With time running out as the election streaks to the finish line, Barack Obama is offended, and he is now taking the offensive.
Sadly, Obama’s entire presidency has been offensive, and we, the people, should be offended.
