full title...........'If four Americans get killed, it's not OPTIMAL': Obama's extraordinary response to Comedy Central question about fiasco after Benghazi attack

President Barack Obama, during an interview to be shown on Comedy Central, has responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the Benghazi attack, by saying: 'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.'

Obama was speaking to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show for a programme to be broadcast tonight.

Stewart, a liberal whose young audience is full of potential voters prized by the Obama campaign, asked the president about his handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi attack.

I’m curious to see it they edit that statement out. Since transcript is out, may be too late, but we will see..

Wouldn’t be surprised.

That have to run it now, or Stewart looks like Candy Crowley.

Stewart doesn’t want to look like Candy Crowley.

Who would?

From “a bump in the road” to not being optimal, Obama has a way with words off prompter...

Just how many is optimal Obama? 10? 100? 1000? How many do you wish had died in this? Obama is such a low life form, reminds me of a slug.

Optimal is a big word for a Jon Stewart audience. 0bama was just trying to look smart considering 3/4ths of the people that watch Jon Stewart do not know the meaning of the word optimal.

Now, where did that self-righteous indignation that was on full display during the debate go?

The one thing giving me hope is that O/B keep screwing up, canceling out whatever puffed up nonsense they try to stick on R/R. The stars feel aligned and God is giving us another chance.

This comment alone should cost him the election. To label the deaths of four Americans as “not optimal” is an actual gaffe than MEANS something! This should be all over the cable news shows, because this shows how out of touch Obama really is despite the narratives they push.

... true, however, what his indonesian culture taught him, amongst other un American things, is he has the right background for a dog eater.

F’n alien.

How America let a Kenyan into that office is beyond me. His dad was not a American ~ but the lie continues to this day.

good observation.
it needs a modifier as he is at war with western man.
“he doesn’t like westerners, alive, dead or partially born”

however he can recite the Koran, and compliment the morning call to prayer as the most beautiful sound on earth!

What a insult to America and her philosophies and culture.

We have to get that Ghazi out of our White House, before he installs minarets and paints it BLACK!

So how many dead Americans would be optimal, Barry?
Beneath despicable. He doesnt care at all about those four dead Americans. He never knew anyone killed in service to his country. This guy is cold hearted, cold blooded, reptilian

And stoopid! Giving Romney the arrows to shoot him with.

He managed to get the word “terrorists” out of that Rose Garden speech with the help of Crowley.

How will he parse the word “optimal”?
