When Obama first spoke in the Rose Garden, and I watched, my first reaction was how disengaged he seemed and how emotionless he was. I posted about it, but was not surprised. Obama only shows emotion if someone is threatening or attaching him, personally. However, every time I watch the video again I am struck once more about his demeanor. He hardly looked at the cameras. He kept his head down, reading notes. His voice was low...even trailing off sometimes...and it was clear that he had no belief in what he was saying.
Besides the discussion that has been had about whether he attributed the attack to Terrorists or not, and the exact words he used, he does state that he "learned of the attack" (he does not call it a demonstration) - "last night" (before he went to bed) - and we all know he went to sleep - still, it is his demeanor that is telling. It seems as though Obama was just trying to get through a task that he found distasteful to him, that he didn't want to be bothered delivering the speech, and could not surmount any real feelings that would normally be expected. I knew then he was lying about or hiding something, but we had no idea how just how much.
Of course, his supporters will just say he was being "somber" and "respectful" but that is not what I saw. I saw a man who showed absolutely no depth of concern and could have been reading the printing on side of a box of cereal for the amount of interest he had in his words. Watch it again and pay attention to his delivery.
obama is bereft of empathy. He can’t even give a good imitation of ‘concern’. He is the shallowest, most empty man I have ever seen. At least clinton could act.
“Vote Early” also gives more opportunity to vote again on election day, as well as other mischief.
He knew from the initial phone call to Washington;
TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
Obama Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harms way;
SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.
