Analysis of the second debate reference to Benghazi(Thanks CSM);
Transcript of Second Presidential Debate
OBAMA: So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions.
He states this in the present tense. Not when he found out what HAD happened, nope, he says when he found out what WAS happening (presently occuring.) So, he made a call to say the following:
Number one, beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but at every embassy and consulate in the region.
This sounds like a future action that does not do anything to address the situation that WAS occuring, so his call was meaningless.
Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure folks are held accountable and it doesnt happen again.
Again, this does nothing to help our fellow Americans that were being attacked and that he made a call while it WAS happening.
And number three, we are going to find out who did this and were going to hunt them down, because one of the things that Ive said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them.
Again, this does nothing to address the situation that WAS happening in real time as he made his call.
His response is a blatent admission that he lacked the courage or mental fortitude to address the situation in real time. That is typical of an academic that is being slapped in the face by real life!
Brave men act in the face of fear, cowards take no action because they are frozen in their inability to make a decision.
Aww, I feel so SmRt since I was referenced! ;-)
