Axelrod Refuses to Say Whether Obama Met with Natíl Security Team Before Heading to Las Vegas
National Review ^ | October 14, 2012 | Eliana Johnson

Posted on 10/14/2012 4:02:07 PM PDT by Snuph

After David Axelrod’s repeated assurances this morning on Fox News Sunday that “there isn’t anybody on this planet” who feels a greater sense of responsibility for our diplomats than this President, Chris Wallace asked how soon after the Benghazi attacks the President actually met with his national security team.

Wallace followed up on Axelrod’s non-answer by asking whether the President managed to squeeze in a meeting with the National Security Council before jetting off to Las Vegas for a campaign rally. Given Axelrod’s inability to produce a straightforward answer to the questions, it’s pretty clear the answer is “no.”

Certainly the award for the biggest liar on the planet will be given to someone inside this administration!

I was listening to Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace gave David Assholefraude a respectful hearing all the questions he asked. When Ed Gillespie was on, Ed was interrupted every other sentence.

I propose that for the next Presidential debates, we have rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Mark Levin as moderators.

Of course, "Axe" failed to mention that the planet in question was Zotton.

Of course he didn’t. He’s too busy with important things to be bothered about doing his job.

I watched in real time and when Wallace asked him that question, you can see Alexrod had a touch of fear in his eyes...

He knew it was a 50 megaton loaded question...that had no good answer ....

Chris should have nailed him to the wall.....

Those intelligence briefers are such pests! No wonder he went to Williamsburg to prepare for the debate- something important- where they won’t be interrupting him with their unimportant trivialities, bumps in the road...

What was very clear to me is he wanted to get the heck out of town and on to more campaigning. He certainly did not show “cares so much” but “I don’t care”. If he were an R...but he’s not so he gets away with way too much as in everything. You just know that the LSM will get back to reporting as soon as we have a Pres. Romney. I am so sick and tired of them!!

I heard the radio replay of the interview and what really got me was when Axelrod said TWICE “No one in the world is more concerned for the safety of our diplomatic personnel than this president...” Yes, and that’s why he went to Vegas after hearing that they were brutally murdered, hung out with Letterman and the girls on the View, whooped it up with Jay Z and Beyonce and skipped intelligence briefings. NO ONE is more concerned! What an azzho.

Assarod: We didn't need to meet. Nothing happened that we didn't plan er, uh, anticipate--weeks in advance.

And like Cutter said, none of these problems would even have happened if Romney and Ryan hadn't shot first and aimed later! They recklessly put Benghazi into the news cycle when we were proceeding with quiet, cautious diplomacy, about which Romney and Ryan know nothing!

Our protest story was... was... was working until Romney and Ryan screwed it up!

A good reporter would have done just that. A partisan or thoroughly mediocre reporter would have done just what Wallace did.

since Axelrod refused to answer, his silence speaks for its self..better to remain silent than lie again and get caught.

the day after four Americans were murdered, Hussein was in Las Vegas partying and raising money for his re election not concerned for four American families...

seems to me the only one he cares about is himself and family..the he!! with the ones he is suppose to be leader for, I'll be watching to see how thin skinned he is on Tues. night...

Exceptional idea.

And terribly sad that a Presidential candidate must do the work that a fair journalist should... but apparently, there aren't terribly many of those around.

I’m with you. Why in the world do we need to exclusively have rather poorly educated ultra-liberal “journalists” who are generally paid to read words written by somebody else? They do not moderate these debates at all.

In addition to your list, I’d add Dr. Thomas Sowell, Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, and James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute. Our very weak Republican delegates to the Presidential Debate Commission are really letting us down.

YEAH, he should have, but Chris only nails Romney supporters to the wall. So damn sick of him. At the end of the show Brit did ask Wallace about where the intel on Susan Rice’s appearance came from and Wallace looked like a deer-in-the headlights when he had to answer “white house”.

I think Chris Wallace did an admirably good job with Axelrod. He was respectful, but he didn't let him get away with non-answers.

Greasy Axlerod was trying to spin Romney into their quagmire in a failed attempt
to deflect away from themselves the failure to protect our dignitaries abroad. Sickening.

Then why didn’t Alexrod say so ?

....because Obama went back to sleep when informed of the Attack....

" Every word out of this mans mouth is pure evil. This is the kind of man that will feed his own children a snake. "

Luke 11

11. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12. Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion

13. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Does anybody else see the major Obama campaign people as just plain ugly and gross?

Plouffe: buck teeth, strange hair and talks like a retard

Messina: childish, borderline retarded, writes on his hands.

Axelrod: gross, greasy, ugly, evil, occasionally w blue tint

Cutter: slut, white trash, ignorant, stupid, and a proven liar

That was Obama's way of voting PRESENT

He is completely lost as a leader and just wants the trappings of being president

He absolutely wants no part of making difficult decisions

Plausible Deniability. They had to get Obama out of Washington, D.C. So that he could say he wasn’t that involved in this mess. They were trying to work a deal with al-Qaeda and it blew up in their faces.

They haven’t given a single honest response to simple questions about Benghazi for the past month- why should anybody but hardcore leftists believe what they have to say about anything else (the economy, health care, taxes, etc.)?
