---- — When Richard Nixon lied about the Watergate break-in, the Democrats ran him out of town, asking “what did the president know and when did he know it?”
Now we have a forked-tongue Obama being shielded by a powder puff media and a party that is willing to sell its soul and its country down the drain to protect the powers of darkness that occupy the White House.
As the president, Obama pledged to defend American citizens from enemies both foreign and domestic. He failed both miserably and dishonestly on that promise when he purposely neglected even with drones in the air to protect American citizens in Libya, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens when their diplomatic compound was attacked by a well-armed, organized cadre of terrorists linked to al Qaida. This, while Obama was wowing Whoopi Goldberg.
Rather than being honest, something he’s incapable of, Obama chose to shield his Islamic connection by making up a cockamamie story naming an obscure video that had been around for months as the spark that ignited the attack.
Obama then had everyone from Hillary Clinton and Jay Carney to the White House cook claiming the attack was fomented by this obscure video.
Obama’s aloof disregarding attitude toward an enemy attack on the United States demands a detailed explanation, including time intervals of exactly what he knew and when he knew it.
The American people excluding perhaps liberal Democrats deserve nothing less.
If President Bush had abandoned those four Americans to such a horrible death and used the same Obama lies, the Democrats would have screamed for his scalp. Obama should be tried as an accomplice to murder, or at least impeached.
