Wish lightening would strike close by right when he lies.
FY 2012 Budget Request March 10, 2011
The second part of our request funds the extraordinary, temporary portion of our war effort the same way the Pentagons request is funded: in a separate Overseas Contingency Operations account known as OCO. Instead of covering war expenses through supplemental appropriations, we are now taking a more transparent approach that fully reflects the integrated civilian-military efforts. Our share of the Presidents $126 billion request for exceptional wartime costs is $8.7 billion. So all told, we have a $47 billion operational account and an $8.7 billion Overseas Contingency Operations account.
But let me just quickly walk you through this, because on this issue of our $8.7 billion Overseas Contingency Operations, we have the strongest support from Secretary Gates, from Admiral Mullen. And next week I was speaking with General Petraeus last night. He will be here on the Hill strongly supporting the civilian effort that goes hand-in-hand with what he is doing so heroically in Afghanistan. So we are funding vital civilian missions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq with this $8.7 billion.
Is the POTUS not in communication with the WH counsel? Inquiring minds want to know.
That is disgusting.
so no umbrellas for the press?
“Would you like a pillow?”
He is uh, uh, uh, lost without his prompter...despise this lying sack of sh*t!!!!!!!
Do these people not know how to consult the weather? Could they not set up a canopy instead of using our Marines as glorified bellhops????
Exactly. Holding umbrellas instead of responding to Benghazi.
Wants to make sure laws are applied fairly and equally - Obama
At home enjoying the sequester?
Regarding Benghazi, he lied the other day when he claimed to have always said it was terrorism. If he lied about something so easy to disprove, he must be lying about everything else.
heck with close, hit him in the head and turn his hair totally white!
Everything is a mystery to this guy!
Except for the class warfare I have promoted in my administration.
Now speaking of “what the American people want” - IRS is a quasi independent entity - Obama
Exactly!! Considering Am Stevens met with the Turkish Ambassador the day of the attack.
It was already determined money was not an issue for additional security.. and on record. Therefore he’s simply demanding money...it’s always more money...more lies.
Blaming any future republicans who might use it against him.
Clueless In The White House
He’s the effing President; he can find out what he wants to know without “an investigation”.
“I think we’re going to be able to fix this” - Obama
What a gigantic egomaniac turd he is
I find it incredible that the Treasury Secretary did not brief the WH sometime much earlier--at least weeks and perhaps months. I say that advisedly having worked in the federal government for 36 years and being very familiar with the IG process.
The Reps should jump on this statement during the hearings.
State Dept. Rules of Engagement Kept Marines out of Tripoli, Benghazi in Libya
Captain Kendra Motz, Marine Corps spokesman, told Breitbart News on Friday that she wasn't aware that the Marine Corps had issued a formal statement, but that the information included in the Powerline report was correct.
"The Marine Corps does not have any Marines stationed at diplomatic installations in Libya."
When asked if she knew of the existence of the document outlining the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, she stated:
"I don't, and even if I did I couldn't disclose it to you because it puts people at risk."
The 50 Marines that were rushed to Libya after the murder of Ambassador Stevens are not permanently stationed at any diplomatic installation in Libya.
I think you're the LAST person the American people trust to fix this!
Cool as a cucumber like none of the scandals surrounding him means a flipping thing..
Great observation K.
I don’t know anything about anything.
It’s all someone elses fault.
Carefully worded.......”I didn’t know anything about the IG report before it was released.” Know one knew at the WH, I certainly didnt know anything until the IG report was leaked.
“We’ve seen the use of chemical weapons in Syria” - Obama
No Fault Big Gubamint on display
He knows he’s going to be protected no matter what. That’s where he’s coming from.
<....Cool as a cucumber like none of the scandals surrounding him means a flipping thing....>
“I can assure I did not know anything about the IG report before it had been leaked to the press”
...Barack Obama May 15, 2013 Wednesday.
I just heard that. He quickly switched to artillery fire.
He’s all for aborting and slaughtering unborn innocent babies even post birth. He sleeps sound at night—even through the Benghazi event. Why should any of this ‘other stuff’ cause him angst?
What Obama means by a fix is to put even more leftist hacks in the IRS that won’t get caught!!
The political appointee lawyers at Treasury and IRS would have been in communication with the WH lawyers and probably Obama campaign. The kenyan knew this was about to drop.
“We’ve, uh, uh, seen, uh, uh, uh, the, uh, uh, use, uh, of, uh, uh, chemical, uh, uh, uh, weapons, uh, uh, in, uh, uh, Syria” - Obama....
Well, can you get... under the bus?
“I can assure I did not know anything about the IG report before it had been leaked to the press...Barack Obama May 15, 2013 Wednesday.””
He also said earlier that it should NOT have been released to the public.... wonder why???
Y y y you can read the history (re Nixon comparison)
He would not be so bold now....as feeble as he was before today...were he not assured he’s well protected.
Att. Gen...”I didn’t know”
Pres. of US...”I didn’t know”
State Dept....”Not our responsiblility”.
Is anybody holding down the fort?
not gonna talk about ongoing case, like Holder won’t discuss ongoing investigation...IMPEACH!
Who was this last guy lobbing a softball down the middle of the plate, and Obama is screwing up the answer.
He said he would leave the media to make comparisons to Watergate.
Lack of security can put people at risk.......they need to know folks back home have their backs if in danger. OMG, he is so brazen.
