Skip to comments.Obama to Diplomats: I Value Your Work Because I Spent Time Abroad as Kid

After President Obama delivered remarks on Libya this morning from the White House--and before his planned trip to Las Vegas--he visited the State Department to deliver more personal and more private remarks. He wanted to offer encouragement after four State Department workers were murdered yesterday in Libya.
A State Department official described the event to the White House pooler.
"Obama spoke for about 15 minutes to a large crowd gathered in the courtyard in the middle of the State Department Building. There were at least a couple of hundred people gathered for the president's remarks, some people watching from the windows," according to the pooler.
He talked about how important the foreign service is and what a great job it does representing the U.S. abroad. He also had a line about how he understands the value of the foreign service because he spent so much time as a kid growing up abroad.

hell, he was born abroad...
oh never mind.
I have an extended family member who got into some trouble in Germany, and I must say, the Embassy staffers who work for a living did a yeoman’s job helping him out of his predicament.
“Adolph “Spike” Dubs (August 4, 1920 - February 14, 1979) was the United States Ambassador to Afghanistan from May 13, 1978, until his death in 1979. He was killed in an exchange of fire after a kidnapping attempt.”
Obviously, he values them almost as much as Carter did...
It always revolves around HIM. Me, me meeeee, I, I, I!! Damn narcissist!
My first thought as well, he’ll shoehorn himself into anything.
Obama to Diplomats: I Value Your Work Because I Spent Time AS Abroad as A Kid.
Yes, I’d even wager that the first few days of his life were spent abroad!
Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!
Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.
A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.
Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focaulut's Pendulum and for these graphic art realities!
...because he spent so much time abroad growing up as a kid.....
hmmmmm, and it shows in all his unAmerican views.
What a puke. No matter what the issue is, in his mind, it’s all about him. He’s the only thing that counts, and “I” is always the first word out of his mouth.
Barry, Barry quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With American blood.....
It’s too late when the US Ambassador is dead. Failure.
Do you value U.S. sovereignty, 0baMao? Sovereign U.S. soil was attacked and sacked in Egypt and in Libya, Mr. Resident! What are you going to do about that besides cry for the dead?
Quick, someone send him a bracelet!
I want dates and your age at the time...
you are such a fake, phony, fraud, we don't know when to believe you and when not to??
WE ARE CONFUSED ON YOUR HISTORY..why not share it with us and unlock the box hiding your secrets...
personally I wish you would resign...even as dumb as Joe Biden is he could probably understand American History better than you.
ROMNEY AND RYAN COME NOV. 6
JimRed to Obama: Why the hell didn't you STAY there?
And, did you notice that in his Libya remarks, he had to turn it to himself, talking about he and Wookie’s 9/11 photo-op in Arlington and Walter Reed.
No matter whatever difficult subject he has to yak about, it always gets back to a narsistic me, me, me!
