When a president of the United States has to give an interview declaring explicitly that he supports the First Amendment you know he screwed up somewhere.
There was President Barack Obama on Air Force One yesterday, telling CBS Steve Kroft, We believe in the First Amendment. According to a transcript provided by the White House, Obama added, We are always going to uphold the rights of individuals to speak their mind.
This must have come as shocking news to the redneck reverend down in Florida who had just gotten a phone call from Obamas chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff bullying him for speaking his.
How did we come to this sad, sorry state where even as a mob of Islamists is attacking an American embassy, the State Department is issuing statements denouncing Americans for expressing their opinions?
On Tuesday, hours before the attack on our Cairo embassy, the State Department posted a statement reading in part, The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims . . . We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
The individuals in question are Americans who made a YouTube video disparaging the Prophet Muhammad. They posted it on YouTube months ago, but it was used as a pretext on 9/11 for yet another attack against America.
What makes this statement from the Cairo Embassy so disturbing is that after the mob turned violent, ripped down and burned the U.S. flag and then hoisted an al-Qaida banner on American soil, the embassy re-issued the same apologetic statement to the very people attacking...

The Presidency of the US is OJT for Obama.
He’s the f’n perennial debutante!
I am so sick of this moron.
Every day, every hour and on every issue he’s like a puppy walking onto a leaf shredder!
If he had the LEAST understanding of America, American values, traditions and our CONSTITUTION.... he wouldn’t be swallowing his own foot every time he opened his mouth!!!!
The guy AIN’T an American... period!
Having to respond to his lackeys’ response to Romney’s criticism?
Affirming his MB buddies’ first amendment rights in Egypt/Libya/Yemen?
Unfortunately some senior flag officers are proficient only in doing Lewinsky’s on their appointer.
Michael Graham - welcome to the world of people who have their eyes open... You might not like to hear it - but you’re one of us now....
And he hasn't learned a single damned thing in 3 1/2 years, except for how to get his worthless ass into a $40 million oceanfront estate in Hawaii.
Yes, Obama has no problem putting down conservative Christians... He thinks traditional Americans are terrorists... he's wrong. The crazy Islamists killing our citizens and burning our buildings are the terrorists.
The movie trailer has been out for months and now they are getting upset? Sounds like Hilary and co were giving them an excuse and setting this thing up. Guess they couldn’t blame the Tea Party directly?
Pray for America
Should the Democrats voter fraud succeed again and BO “win,” conservative patriots in this country will have to put up or shut up as he continues to force Marxism down our throats.
The East Germans finally couldn’t take Communism any more. They had no guns to fight with, so they did the only thing they could. In huge numbers, they sat in the streets and refused to go to work.
No nation can survive if the people have the courage to do this. The leaders have no one to lead, or feed them, as a matter of fact. Until Americans get to this point, all our complaining is useless. Our tax money will continue to pay the forces that oppress us.
Positive proof the Zero does not believe in the First Amendment!
Obama, it is never an “abuse” to excercise our 1st amendment “right” to free speech. You f’n marxists child!
