The Blaze ^ | 10/18/12 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 10/18/2012 5:26:54 PM PDT by Nachum

Almost immediately after pool reports indicated that President Barack Obama called the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi “not optimal” during the taping of “The Daily Show,” social media exploded with outrage over the president’s remarks.

The backlash was almost instantaneous — and it was brutal. The clumsy phrase from Obama gave birth to the #NotOptimal hashtag on Twitter, which was trending nationwide as of 7:30 p.m. ET.

Joe Biden being one heartbeat away from the presidency. Seriously #NotOptimal.

Foreign policy expert Joe Biden thinks we have troops in Iran- #notoptimal

#NotOptimal $5.5 trillion of new debt, 23 million unemployed or underemployed, declining real incomes, anemic economic growth.

Appointing a horrible attorney general who made the least political arm of govt into the most political one? #NotOptimal

Winning the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing #notoptimal

A White House that pays women less than men #notoptimal

Lying to 70 million Americans about Benghazi on national tv. #Notoptimal

Clinging to Big Bird & “Women in binders” as your last ditch campaign strategy #notoptimal

Being an Ambassador when Obama is your President #NotOptimal

Candy Crowley’s fact checking skills. #notoptimal

1 in 6 Americans in poverty #notoptimal

Joe Biden’s football career #notoptimal

Dude looked like a lady. #notoptimal

Not optimal bumps in the road.

Maybe Candy Clowney can clarify that. If she's not too busy trying to escape from her binders.

Four dead Americans “not optimal”—no big deal.

“Binders of women”—outrageous.

It’s not Obama’s fault - the intelligence community told him it was not optimal......or an official at the State Department told him that it was not optimal....or someone on a You Tubr video said it.....or...or...

The Middle East blowup was just “a bump in the road” and the murders of four Americans is “not optimal” (for the reelection campaign of Baraq Hussein mohammed 0bama). I hope every American will finally realize what a flaming asshole islamofascist commie he is!

Is that preferable to ‘a bump in the road’?

obama acted all tough when the Libya question came up and Romney backed off,. He shouldn’t have, he should have called him out, he shoudl have made it clear he went to Vegas and kept saying that and he shoudl have mentioned it was a bump in the road to obama and now this.

What does that refer to? To one of the questioners at the most recent debate, or to a picture of Obama? Or something else?

“puts fingers in ears.”

And those were the same flap ears that Uncle Frank used as love handles.

Thank you, Tweeters everywhere, for going off on this guy. Not optimal?? Knowing him, he was probably laughing when he said it, right?

He needs to be held accountable. It is inexcusable that they try to mock Romney for leaving out the obvious word “resumes” when he gets away with this bull feces. He has said 100 things worse, especially “corpseman,” and the press doesn’t touch it. He repeated corpseman each time it came on his prompter that speech.

Obama’s “not optimal” comment is exactly what one would expect to come out of the mouth of a narcissistic sociopath.

A major chunk of our intelligence - and large groups over at State got to listen in while these men were slaughtered in Benghazi ... I'd like to know why the New York Times isn't looking into this - and I'd like to know who in the administration is into Snuff films... Someone got off on this...
