Obama Says US Citizens Killed At Libyan Embassy Were In Charge of Security There
Weekly Address ^ | 9-15-2012 | Obama

Posted on 09/16/2012 11:10:36 PM PDT by ExxonPatrolUs

This week in Libya, we lost four of our fellow Americans. Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Chris Stevens were all killed in an outrageous attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi.

These four Americans represented the very best of our country.

Glen and Tyrone had each served America as Navy SEALs for many years, before continuing their service providing security for our diplomats in Libya. They died as they lived their lives – defending their fellow Americans, and advancing the values that all of us hold dear.

...This tragic attack takes place at a time of turmoil and protest in many different countries. I have made it clear that the United States has a profound respect for people of all faiths. We stand for religious freedom. And we reject the denigration of any religion – including Islam.

Yet there is never any justification for violence. There is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women.

Would another president have admitted failure or apologized?

Mr. President, you left these two unfortunate men poorly armed, in a war-torn hell-hole, without backup. The security of that consulate was not in their hands. It was in YOURS.

You and me both. I have to actually repent because of the hatred I feel for him sometimes.

Dumb and emotional voters vote for incompetent politicians. The only way to fix this is to not let dumb and emotional people vote.

It really is the only way.

Statistically, it worked to not let women vote, because they are, statistically, more emotional. Sure, some women are more rational than some men, but, statistically, they are not.

Statistically, it worked to not let blacks vote, because they are, statistically, dumber. Sure, some blacks are more intelligent than some whites, but, statistically, they are not.

If we cannot base voting rights on statistics, how do we stop the dumb and emotional from voting?

Easy. If you have paid more taxes than you have received in entitlements, you may vote. Otherwise, you may not vote.

If this happened on Bush's watch, the 24/7 drumbeat from the mainstream media would be deafening and have his approval ratings down in the single digits.

Since it happened on Zero's watch, we send jack-booted thugs to roust the suspected producer of the movie out of his home at 2 am, and the media is silent.

” \There is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women.”

I actually went and listened to the video to confirm that the liar said this. I guess it just depends on what your definition of ‘innocent’ is.

Can you imagine what the response of the media would be if President Bush had said this?

“We stand for religious freedom.”

Yes, freedom “OF” religion, not freedom from religion.

We also stand for freedom of speech, BARRY!

Maybe you should go back and brush up on our Constitution, the WHOLE Constitution.

I heard Susan Rice yesterday say essentially the same thing. 2 people to guard an Ambassador in a hot zone?

Obama and Co. are evil. They don’t have a shred of decency between them. They have utter disdain for us as citizens.
