Last head-butt lesson.
Before I turned on Levin, I was listening to Chairman maobama's presser. I just had to do it. Must admit, it might have been his most adroitly deceptive presser to date--- as Mark just said: A DANGEROUS DEMAGOGUE
Wanted to post the entire #$@%$ transcript here, but I see a rigid copyright notice and no WH release of transcript yet, so I will just post the url:
Even if I had just bet a sugar drink every time I heard the words "middle class" and "holiday season" and "mandate," I might be in the ER right now.
Search words "Rice" and "security director"
AND, he never answered this question (unless he did, by elimination)---i.e., HE gave the order to stand down and the order refusing CBA (cross-border authority).
Q: I want to take Chucks lead and just ask a very small follow- up, which is whether you feel you have a mandate, not just on taxes, but on a range of issues, because of your decisive victory. But I want to stay on Benghazi, based on what John (sp) asked, because you said, if they want to come after me, come after me. I wanted to ask about the families of these four Americans who were killed. Sean Smiths father, Ray, said he believes his so basically called 911 for help, and they didnt get it. And I know youve said you grieve for these four Americans, that its being investigated. But the families have been waiting for more than two months. So I would like to for you to address the families, if you can: On 9/11, as commander in chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Ed, you know, Ill address the families not through the press. Ill address the families directly, as I already have. And we will provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. Thats what the investigation is for. But as I said repeatedly, if people dont think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who I sent there, and who were carrying out missions on behalf of the United States, then you dont know how our Defense Department thinks or our State Department thinks or our CIA thinks. Their number one priority is obviously to protect American lives. Thats what our job is.
Didn't answer the question about what he thinks or what he did/ordered.
BTW: Where IS everybody?
