Cold and bloodless. Americans murdered, al Qaeda's flag raised over our embassies, Afghanistan in tatters and Obama says it's just a bump in the road. (Of his celebrity hobnobbing.)

Didn’t Obama use the same analogy, “bumps in the road”, in reference to our high unemployment?

The sodomy and murder of an unprotected US diplomat is a bump in the road. I don’t know what to say to that..

Gosh, do you think Big Media will give this outrage as much time as they gave Romney’s ‘47%’ comments?? I didn’t think so.

The “bumps in the road” are dead American bodies.

Ahhh, yes. That ‘bump in the road’ was the Ambassador’s body (including three other patriots) being thrown under Obama’s infamous bus.

He doesn’t mean “bumps in the road”-—he means a few spots
where the Red Sea didn’t exactly part as he thought it would.
Of course, Obama was parting it for the Muslims, not the people of Israel.The narrative it is incumbent on Obama to keep alive at least till the next election is that the “legal authority” in these countries, like Morsi, hahahaha, are just as at odds with the radical Jihadists as we are.That’s going to be a hard concept to make and keep persuasive.

This statement and others by this administration are just outrageous. Of course the media will just give this idiot another pass and bring up the 47% again against Mitt. The whole scenario is just bizarre.

When you have an apocalyptic worldview from a perch of Olympian detachment, and a long,long view of “History”
as he fancies he does (in common with the Radical Islamists)
coupled with total cluelessness, you can see these things as
mere “bumps in the road”. Total bloodlessness masquerading
as Intellectual Omnipotence.

And there you have it folks. Obama considers Christopher Stevens’ abused and lifeless body a “speed bump” on the road to political power.

I could forgive this guy some of the stupid stuff he says if I thought that he was working on becoming competent or that he even gives one little (human waste) about these people or anything except himself. He needs to resign immediately or be impeached.

ABC News White House Correspondent Jake Tapper has the administration's spin:

SNIP

A senior administration official e-mailed me this evening about those criticizing the president’s remarks:

“1) It’s just not true that he was characterizing the attack in Benghazi — the question doesn’t even make mention of it. He’s speaking about broad trends.

“2) Take a look at his answer — what is there to disagree with? We are holding true to our values. We face entrenched strains of extremism. We will benefit from a region that is more peaceful.

“3) This is clearly a rocky path — the point he also makes clearly is that we have an interest in democratic transitions succeeding.”

These remarks are further evidence that Obama is a psychopath.

Where in the hell is the mental health profession on this guy?

Besides Dr. Lyle Rossiter, I cannot think of anyone who has ever stepped forward to discuss the psychological illness of these creeps called "democrats."

Dead Americans always put a smile on Obama’s face..he hates everything about this country, from the Jews, to White People, to our military. This is what happens when Obama doesn’t have a teleprompter at his disposal, people see the REAL Obama, the Anti American Marxist who despises everything that is America

"you know, in a lot of these places-- the one organizing principle-- has been Islam. The one part of society that hasn't been controlled completely by the government."

That part of the statement sent a chill up my spine, ignoring the fact that Islam is a theocracy, "hasn't been controlled completely controlled by government"

That's all it takes to solve a problem, complete control by the government.

Hey bammy, that is so comforting to the people who gave their lives and their families, to have their sacrifice blithely dismissed as a mere "bump in the road." hussein, you're an a**.

Guess what bammy, in a few years your whole occupation of the White House and all your failed policies will be looked at as a mere bump in the road on the way to a more vibrant, prosperous, and yes powerful United States. Hope that thought keeps you up at night you {expletive}.

“1) It’s just not true that he was characterizing the attack in Benghazi — the question doesn’t even make mention of it. He’s speaking about broad trends. “

#1 How broad a trend does he need ? I believe that somewhere between 5640 - 6000 miles of muslim nations have been rioting . Additionally , another 2 nations have prevented a “Muslum Brotherhood “ takeover of political proportions . There ain’t nothing religious about it - its all about power .

“2) Take a look at his answer — what is there to disagree with? We are holding true to our values. We face entrenched strains of extremism. We will benefit from a region that is more peaceful.”
#2 Our values do not include armed aggression under the guise of supporting democracy , and then in the vaccume , have the bloody , well-armed Muslum Brotherhood muscle their way into power.
Our Values are to address a problem with leadership ( leader - implies from the front) , not appearances on Letterman , Leno , and “The View” . It means stay focused and “Get’er done !”

““3) This is clearly a rocky path — the point he also makes clearly is that we have an interest in democratic transitions succeeding.”
#3 Democracy implies accountability to the citizenry .
Explain , please , why we have more security in this country ( Homeland Security / BATF/ FBI/ drones/ Border Agents / violation of ‘posse commitaus’/ National Guard / para military police/ closed circuit cameras) while we are losing our democracy ?
I am not the enemy , and I mean no harm to this country !
I do not want to be groped or ‘patted down’ like some criminal.
The rocky path is the fact that our government , our political leaders on all sides of the aisle do not hold to our values . They tell us one thing when they want our vote , then they go to Wash D.C. and they vote totally different than what they told us.
The wars are not out values
The National debt is not our values
The ‘QE 3’ to save the leveraged banks is not our values

Obviously , Mr. Tapper , your interpretation of my values and my concept of democracy differ from yours ; you have a great voice which reaches millions; I am but a voice of a few in the whirlwind .
You believe there have been a few bumps in the road ; I disagree !
“Bumps in the Road” ; nope ! I believe that we are headed for a trainwreck , and in one month we have a chance to change the switch . I just hope that it is in time .

there are going to be bumps in the road because

Our sodomized and murdered Amabassador, the murder of 2 former Navy Seals, the murder of another American, American embassies besieged, the White House cover up and lies, the release of secret documents pointing to the attacks being an inside job, the lack of security to protect the life of our Ambassador and his staff, the willful and intentional refusal to heed warnings from Libya and repeated attempts of Netanyahu's calls days before the atrocity are all just 'bumps in the road' to the Marxist Obama.

No wonder he could go to sleep during the mortaring of our embassy and attend a gala fundraiser in Vegas the following day.

What an utterly evil and disgraceful pig.

He’s gonna go dance on graves of SEALs this week by having a campaign stop in Virginia Beach. I am so disgusted by this. There is no way he can win that area. So what other reason could he have for campaigning within spitting distance of their home base? Is he drawing a map for his pals?

I feel certain the families of those four murdered Americans feel that the three+ years of B.Hussein Obama is a rut in the road that have truly harmed their families lives...

I would hope they speak publicly about their bump in the road they are feeling about now..

I weep for all of them and for our Country I once knew..never have I hated a president as much as I do the current one...

Please AMERICAN VOTERS help our nation to heal and recover and vote this fool OUT..

And there are those right here within our ranks on FR, who would by default, prefer to see America destroyed by that vile pig in the White House, than to vote for Romney & Ryan on November 6th because Romney "isn't conservative enough".

Yes, indeed. And if Obama's re-elected, my innocent grandchild will have them and their ilk to thank for the trashed country they'll inherit.
