Skip to comments.Mark Steyn on Obama's Las Vegas 'performance': 'Every American should be ashamed of their president'
Posted on 09/14/2012 6:44:22 AM PDT by Rufus2007
On Hugh Hewitts 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 didnt 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 Obamas remarks set him off.

That sums it up. But sadly, there's something wrong with a lot of Americans. They either don't know or don't care.
Sununu on Fox now eviscerating the president.
Every American should be ashamed that enough deadbeats voted for Obama for SEIU and ACORN vote fraud to put him over the top. Every American should be ashamed that an anti-American bigot who is barely qualified to sleep in a filthy Occupy Wall Street tent is occupying our White House. Ashamed of “our president” though? No one in America is entitled to that job title at this point, so the phrase is meaningless. I just hope and pray that we will get a real president on January 20, 2013, and that Congress will be conservative enough to force him to govern as a man we can take pride in.
Mark Steyn brilliant as always!
Would have been nice to hear Steyn’s remarks on the Hewitt show. But our local SRN affiliate (WNTP-990) finds it more important to pre-empt Hewitt for Penn State football TALK on Thursdays.
He is incapable of this, because there is nothing of America in him. I've been saying it since before '08.... He is not ONE OF US. Whether he is "technically" American by birth (doubtful) or not, there is nothing of the American experience about him. He is simply, culturally, NOT an American. And no matter what pretty words his masters might teach him to speak, that fact will always be, and will always show.
Obama is the ‘Manchurian’ President enacting ‘1984’ like a play-by-play.
There’s an old saying that’s appropriate: “Truth is stranger than fiction.”
May we live in interesting times, indeed.
The news is leaking out slowly and we can help. Posting links to this page...
I probably would be, except that I have considered the office VACANT since noon January 20, 2009 when a kenyan usurper began squatting there.
Hey, Obama's shoes hurt too - that's very close to the anal rape done on our ambassador by the 'protesters' before he was murdered... both are painful...
The press thinks they're equal...
Does anyone have the direct quote of Obama saying he “had a bad day” and comparing the embassy to Americans etc?
Without TOTUS el Zer0 is left floundering.
His speechwriters are inept but without them he is worse.
He can read, has a nice reading voice (except for the whistling ‘S’s that drives me crazy) and that’s all.
Smart? My a$$ !
We certainly are here on FR and have been for some time. I'm hopeful that the rest of America is too.
For anyone who ISN’T a functional illiterate, all Obama’s speeches and remarks consistently exhibit a most embarrassing lack of basic language skills.
For MY money, anyone without language skill is ALSO (and more significantly) a person of low intellect.
Why? Because... to speak is to think! Your speech will always reflect the extent and depth of your knowledge, sophistication and clarity of thought. If you have ANY command of the subject on which you are speaking, it will be apparent even IF you do not prepare or formulate ahead of time.
With “O”, I always see a shameful poverty of expression. He consistently employs inappropriate, ineffective, hackneyed and dated expressions. No educated person whos spent a lifetime in public service and who is supposed to be regarded as well read would EVER express himself in this way.
Additionally, O is emotionally flat. Any emotion which he attempts to display appears labored, self-conscious and visibly coached.
I have to wonder if hes EVER in his life read the speeches of Churchill, Lincoln, Douglas, etc. Heck, the speeches and expressions of American native chiefs articulate more and greater depth of feeling and concise logic than anything Ive ever heard from O.
THIS is just exactly why I am certain that O is a perfect fraud and bounder foisted on to the American political system by Liberals and their other Anti-American creatures themselves VERY easily led and impressed by shallow, superficial intellects.
They are NOT fooling ME!
I don't currently have one.
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.

It is past time to fire Barack and have him hit the road back to Chicago!
Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focault's Pendulum and for finding these morphing graphic art realities
That was good the first 100 times I saw it.
For the media the two big stories of the week are that Romney “bungled” his statement reacting to the apology from the US embassy in Cairo, and that he mishandled the press conference the next day by not focusing on the right issues. Chris Wallace was pushing that line this morning on Fox & Friends.
Damn! Mark is right!
