Obama criticizes Republicans for focusing on Benghazi, Obamacare

WASHINGTON, May 19 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama chastised his Republican opponents on Monday for focusing criticism on the events surrounding the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, and on his signature healthcare law.

"The debate we're having now is about what, Benghazi? Obamacare? And it becomes this endless loop. It's not serious. It's not speaking to the real concerns that people have," Obama said.

He was speaking to more than 60 people at a fundraising dinner for Democratic candidates for the House of Representatives.

The event took place at a physician's home in the Washington suburb of Potomac, Maryland, as Obama seeks to persuade Democrats to organize for a voter turnout effort to prevent Republicans from ousting Democrats from control of the Senate and from building on their majority in the House.

Republicans in the House have begun a new investigation of the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans during a militant attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

New Obamacare slogan announced: “We just killed your veteran grandfather, now let us kill you too!”

Excuse me ..?? I think the DEATH OF FOUR CITIZENS .. should most certainly be of concern.

But .. if people don’t care what Hillary did to four American citizens .. well then .. YOU BETTER HIDE .. BECAUSE WHAT SHE DID TO THEM - SHE WILL DO TO YOU.

“...because phony climate scares and transsexuals in the military are much more important to Americans than dead ambassadors and how much they’re going to be paying for healthcare for the rest of their lives,” he continued...

Until these four questions are answered....
1) Why was security lax at Benghazi?
2) Who decided to not send help?
3) Where is the ‘tic-toc’ timetable of both Obama and Hillary from beginning to end of events?
4) Who made the decsion to lie about a video?

.....the investigation should remain open. Sorry Bampster. We are the Investigation we’ve been waiting for!!!

As far as Obamacare goes...dude, you screwed up our healthcare 5 years ago!!! Of course, were gonna talk about it.

It's speaking EXACTLY to the real concerns I have. What WAS the Marxist, Mooslim, Kenyan, Steaming Pant Load doing while four brave Americans died? (for a start)

Golly gee! I thought the “Obamacare” label was now verboten. Can’t be, he’s still using it.

"He was speaking to more than 60 people at a fundraising dinner for Democratic candidates for the House of Representatives."

So, the POTUS is attending a fundraiser with wealthy donors.

Instead of helping America recover from his crap sandwich economy.

Yep, Obama is REALLY speaking to "real concerns that people have".

If this were a republican administration, you'd never hear the end of how cold, out of touch, and callous the POTUS is.

We could speak about the Obamanation’s policies that are smothering the economy, reducing wages, and preventing full employment but “the one” wouldn’t like those topics any better.
