Steyn on Obama’s Las Vegas ‘performance’: ‘Every American should be ashamed of their president']
Daily Caller ^ | 9-14-12 | Jeff Poor

On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Thursday night, National Review columnist Mark Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” said President Barack Obama gave an embarrassing performance Wednesday during his campaign swing through Las Vegas, Nev., in the wake of attacks on U.S. diplomatic stations in Libya and Egypt.

“I thought that thing last night with the president saying he had ‘a tough day’ and comparing the dead Americans in Libya to campaign supporters, which he did — I thought was one of the most disgraceful, inept and embarrassing performances by a head of state or government that I have ever seen,” Steyn said. “Every American should be ashamed of their president.”

Steyn didn’t fault the president for going to Sin City, acknowledging that sometimes plans are in place and things have to move along. But the tone of Obama’s remarks set him off.

TelePrompTer let Zero down. It was an awkwardly worded transition to say the least.

The one I saw he goes and does all this crass campaign stuff first in pep rally mode, then just starts talking as president about the dead Americans.

He’s awful and it’s so sad for our country because if the press actually covered this man it would drive him down to around 39%.

I’m not sure Las Vegas people will believe Mr. Steyn; people thre are true believers in what EMK called “the dream,” meaning the liberal nightmare.
