An Indignant George Stephanopoulos Huffs to Santorum: 'How Can You Say' Obama Is Weak?
Newsbusters ^ | 1/3/12 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 01/03/2012 9:53:27 AM PST by Nachum

An indignant George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday demanded that Rick Santorum explain his harsh attacks on Barack Obama. After reading off a quote from the Republican presidential candidate and then listing the President's foreign policy accomplishments, Stephanopoulos defended, "How can you say he sided with our enemies on almost every foreign conflict?"

Santorum responded by insisting that, in the example of killing bin Laden, Obama simply followed a course set by George W. Bush. Stephanopoulos sputtered, "How can you say he sided with our enemies on almost every foreign conflict?"

Repeating what will surely be Obama 2012 talking points, the former Democratic operative added, "But, Senator is that true?...Osama bin Laden was alive when President Obama took office. He's dead now."

Hey, it only took 19 hours for President Horsemeat to decide on whether or not to give the order to take out OBL on credible actionable intelligence. He had to sleep on it. He is overworked and needs a vacation with lots of golf. Give him a break. He is black too.

I think Santorum’s comments were quite naive.

How can he say that Obama, or any president for that matter, has cided one way every single time. You can’t.

Santorum is a light weight. Sorry folks, he is. Why waste money on him?

I’m going with Newt. I plan to send him money before NH. Iowa means nothing. Have they ever picked the winner?

Yes Bin Laden was killed under Obama’s watch; but that was just the period at the end of the sentence. The story of Al Qaida’s demise had already been written. It was a good thing, a necessary punctuation mark, but Osama had already bee reduced to a sick old man wandering about his hideout in his pajama's.

In the photo of the situation room that was released as the operation to take out Bin laden went down, it certainly doesn’t look like Obama is in charge. It looks like he was told to sit in the corner and stay out of the way.

Osama bin Laden was alive when President Obama took office. He’s dead now.”

And if mac daddy the wimp would have had it his way he would still be alive but the adults in the room took over for President present.

Mac daddy did not have bal*s enough to give the order in case anything went wrong he could declare himself blameless, but since it work he was the one who took all the credit.

I guess the same way Obama can claim credit for the death of OBL. Does anyone think that the result would have been different regardless of who was in the WH? Finding and killing OBL was the culmination of years of intelligence gathering and planning.

I have to agree with you nikos. Santorum, along with Bachmann, are the two worst choices, IMO, and they would be handily defeated by Obama. My personal choice is Rick Perry. He's got more executive experience than all the other candidates combined, and a sterling record of job creation. But Newt would also be a good choice. And both of them can defeat Obama.

My reply, if I were being interviewed: "Harry Morgan was alive when Obama took office too, and he's also dead. What's your point?"

I have a question? Why won’t any of our candidates show some gumption when interviewed by some of these known Dem supporting commentators by saying something like “look George we all know that you were previously employed in the Democratic administration of Bill Clinton” therefore the listeners should keep this in mind when listening to your questions and comments after I have answered your question? Say this all the time because our people always get hammered anyway. just sayin.

I agree. Santorum should have said “It’s the economy, stupid.” Stephy and the other Dem organizers used that against Bush One, dismissing his foreign policy decisions in ‘92.

Wild mustangs and wild burros are multiplying too fast and over grazing public and private grassland in the west. They are pretty to look at, but are very hard on range lands. The numbers have to be reduced and harvesting them for meat to send abroad is one way to address the problem.

Managing any wild life is part of the real world. We in Wisconsin manage whitetail deer with a hunting season. That is better than having all new trees in our forests eaten by deer or hitting a deer every time we drive down a country road.

I wonder if Bush would have released a photo of a group of the top people in his cabinet and a few generals claiming they were watching a video of bin laden being killed and then drop the body in the ocean and then have a few of the seals involved ambushed, what would dumb asses like stephanopoulos be screaming on the network follies shows?

“How can he say that Obama, or any president for that matter, has cided(sic) one way every single time. You can’t.”

Obama is destroying America. Obama is weak, extremely weak.
But that is not the biggest problem. The Obama administration is making America weak.

Santorum was right in his comments. Georgie Stephie is simply an Obama stooge.

Is it true that George graduated from Columbia the year before Obama did??

If so, could they have taken classes under Piven together, shared other socialist experiences?

I recall that when Stephanopoulos was chief adviser for Clinton, he was known in some circles as a card carrying member of some socialist party.. I wonder if they talk about the good ol' days at Columbia when the get together for ABC interviews.

He's dead now."

George. I never got to see a video of Osama's dead carcass outside of some doctored-looking photograph devoid of the soldiers that killed him. Further, I never got to see a video of the US supposedly burying this effing Muslim at sea.....I have no doubt that we will never hear from OBL again - it's just a nagging inkling that OBL might be living in an ARUBA condo at our expense.... Go back home to that stupid hot wife you have you sawed off shortstack and STFU! Nobody thinks you are a journalist - you're just some asshole that helped Slick Willie get elected and knew when to get out.

"How can he say that Obama, or any president for that matter, has sided one way every single time. You can’t."

Did you even read the transcript? Here's the meat of it:

SANTORUM: George, on every single contingency that has come up under his administration, the two things you mentioned, and are always mentioned by Obama defenders, are things that were in place when he was in office, when he came into office. They were missions that were defined. He's simply gone ahead and continued to execute those missions.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But, Senator is that true? When Osama bin Laden was alive when President Obama took office. He's dead now.

SANTORUM: Yeah. Well, that's right. But that was a mission that was already decided. policy to kill Osama bin Laden and to kill al Qaeda and to treat them as enemy combatants. The President did not change that policy. But that was not a policy or problem that came up under his watch. The ones that did come up under his watch, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Honduras, you can go down the list. Poland. The U.K., the Czechs. Ask all of them whether- Israel, whether we've been a good ally, one you could stand by. And look at the ones who have been enemies to the United States. And we have appeased and pandered. This is a President that has gotten it wrong whenever time there's been a decision to be made, whether it's in the interest of the United States, when a contingency came up under his watch, he's blown it.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, you have quite a list there. We're going to have to follow up another time.

Yeah, right, like they did with Obama.....

If it was a photoshop, then the Obama team is even more incompetent than I thought. You would think they'd photoshop him into the command chair at the head of the table, so that it looks like he's running the operation. Instead, he's hunched down back in the corner, looking as if he snuck into the room.
