Obama Rep calls House hearings "Outrageous" (satire alert needed for the inane)
Associated Posers ^ | 10-10-2012 | geronl

(Associated Posers) - WASHINGTON DC – With testimony taking place in front of a US House Committee about the lack of security at the US Consulate in Benghazi where 4 Americans were killed in what the government now admits was a terrorist act, the Presidents' representative Jen Psaki appeared on CNN to call the hearing “outrageous”.

“This is a political stunt to change the topic away from Mitt Romney's failed economic and social policies” she said “There is no reason for anyone to worry about why our embassies are unguarded”.

Documents released from the administration show that the staff of the consulate had been begging for weeks for more security. Documents also show that officials of the State Departments had a policy of refusing to send more security, instead relying on outsourced and local security, this order was also signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They even advertised a $13,000 security position giving preferences to people in same-sex relationships. Apparently there was only a single security officer at the consulate.

Jen Psaki said the hearings and accusations were all “outrageous poitical accusations”.

“The administration is providing information they had access to at the time. And the intelligence community has come out and said that this was an organized act of terrorism. But for us, it’s not political. For the President, it’s not political. And it’s unfortunate it’s being brought to that” she said.

But for more than a week after the deadly attack the administration and President Obama refused to admit it was a terrorist attack. Saying that the incident took place because of outrage over a short video on Youtube during a protest. The government now admits that there was no protest at all and that 100+ armed men, some with rocket-propelled grenade launchers, did not just happen to meet up and decide willy-nilly to attack the consulate.

“These are just distractions by the right-wing conspiracy” Psaki told CNN “The real issue of this campaign is funding Sesame Street and not denying free condoms to college students at prestigious, ivy-league universities who are dating wealthy heirs. The real issue is not that our embassies are unguarded in tumultuous locales, it is that we need to get more Chevy Volts purchased by the federal government sent to these places”.

Jen Psaki said “Barack's friend, Martha Radditz, is moderating the Vice Presidential debate and will keep the debate on topic. This is all about the Republican War on Women, and that is what Paul Ryan needs to be hit with. The President attended her wedding, so she owes us one”.

When asked about the President's accusations that Mitt Romney wants a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich, she stated “Well, that wasn't true, but we aren't going to surrender the issue. We are going to keep pounding Romney with that. We have to protect this economic recovery from the ravages of his proposed tax and spending cuts”

It's just more sounds bites that the Romney campaign can use for TV ads.

"satire alert needed for the inane"

'Inane' is an adjective and not a noun. Don't be inane.

Except for the embassy staff, that is. Right Jen?

If Romney would say he’s pulling all Americans, troops included, out of all muslim land, the election would be his! Wars can’t be won in places where one can’t tell who the enemy is! They fight each other in tribal wars and come together with a vengence when we get involved. Let them alone to kill one another. They do a good job of it! Open up our oil fields and energy opportunities in this country and we don’t need them! Soooo simple!

lol.

It’s mine. Did the satire warning in the headline not work?

Was it too subtle?

All I do is add quotes to make it more “truthful”. lol

I’ve been trying to study Korean (and it’s going slowly) and it’s mixed me up pretty bad. That’s my inane excuse and I’m sticking to it.

I just spent 4 plus hours listening to the hearings and I consider it time well spent.

Jen Psaki is clearly nothing but a political hack concerned only with protecting the President from the consequences of his lack of execution and attempts to hide what occurred in Libya.

The name may be ficticous(sp?)....but some on the left are making some of the statements.....may be satire but it ain’t far from reality.

I got in on the last hour or so, then the follow up stuff, where they showed the start of the committee investigation.
9PM EST tonight I believe for anyone that missed it, it will be re-broadcast on CSPAN.
I suppose sections of it will be available at Utube, elsewhere, in the days to come.
Signing off to have dinner.

This article is satire, but then again, it’s not far from the truth, either. I could see an Obama spokesman reacting this way.

Thanks, I’ve doing this for about 20 days, you can check out the other ones on the blog- most of them are also on FR in their entirety but I don’t have a keyword or anything to make it easy.

You might want to post this to the WAPO. I think they have the corner on this type of “reporting.”

CNN would certainly buy it.

Just saying....

The left has a confirmation bias that doesn’t include any screens whatsoever. None. Ever.

IMO, the deal is that this article is virtually indistinguishable from what’s been coming out of the White House in recent days.

I caught some of wasserman on Piers Morgan about Libya. She said something like “just because the administration put out statements that were completely wrong doesn’t mean they were false”. Piers popped a vein.

'Inane' is an adjective and not a noun. Don't be inane.

Not today, hands. Sometimes you have to think outside the box...

You are familiar with a Mobius strip? "We have met the enemy and he is us".

If I were president I would say that considering budget constraints and the fact that our military is spread thin it’s time to use our tactical nukes or MOABS to finally take out the terrorist.
