Axelrod on Why Obama Campaigned Hours After Benghazi: Everything Was Put in Motion That He Could Put in Motion
November 5, 2012
President Obama returned to the campaign trail hours after terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate and a safe house in Benghazi, killing four Americans, because everything was put in motion that he could put in motion, Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod said Sunday.
Axelrod was asked by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace about the presidents decision to fly to Nevada for a campaign event within hours of the Sept. 11 attack compared to the decision late last month to suspend campaigning for three days to deal with superstorm Sandy.
Chris, as I said, immediately when word of the attack came, the president was meeting with his top national security folks. He was talking to them well into the night. He was in touch with them during the day, as during the next day as well. So, there is no question about the fact that he was focused on this.
But, why did he feel he could campaign within hours after a terror attack? Wallace asked.
Well, everything everything was put in motion that he could put in motion, Axelrod replied. Everything every conversation that needed to be had was being had between him and his top national security officials.
According to the official White House schedule for Wednesday, September 12, Obama left the White House for Andrews Air Force Base and the flight to Las Vegas at 2:05 pm. That was less than 24 hours after the drawn-out attack in Benghazi began; less than 16 hours after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Twitter first reported that an unnamed State Department officer had been killed in Benghazi; and about six hours after Clinton tweeted confirmation that four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were dead.
It’s kind of hard to reconcile what Axelrod said with what Panetta said. No?
Axelrod and his family are treacherous people connected to the communist links in Chicago that extend to the Dunham family communists in Hawaii going back to Aug 1941 and before. I believe that the Chicago communist cell(s) in Chicago were in on the scheme with publicized Moscow communists to put Obama into the POTUSA. I wish I could be living when all this unfolds in the annals of history.
Well, maybe you can ask Ann Coulter then WHY HER MAN, MITT ROMNEY DIDN’T SPIKE THIS FACT IN THE DEBATES? HE LEFT IT ALONE.
It’s seems looking back that the guy wasn’t there. The sad thing is that the two ex-Seals probably gave their lives that allowed 30 or more Americans to evacuate and not be captured.
Then you have the hurricane...
It’s as though getting Obama a second term was mean’t to be.
Axelrod: Chris, as I said, immediately when word of the attack came, the president was meeting with his top national security folks. He was talking to them well into the night. He was in touch with them during the day, as during the next day as well. So, there is no question about the fact that he was focused on this.
Panetta: “Obama was AWOL” no communications with Obutthole that night.
Sounds like Axelboner is caught in one big fat greasy lie. What a surprise! /sarc
