WH: 'Offensive' to Question Obama's Actions During Benghazi
Breitbart ^ | 5/19/13 | staff

Posted on 05/19/2013 8:41:38 AM PDT by Nachum

Going on the offensive about President Obama’s mysterious whereabouts during the Benghazi terrorist attacks of September 11, 2012 that resulted in the deaths of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said it was “offensive” for anyone to question whether the White House could have done more. The assertion “from Republicans” that Obama was not responsive enough during the attack, said Pfeiffer, is “offensive.”

“The premise of [the question on Obama’s whereabouts],” Pfeiffer explained, “is that somehow there was something that could have been done differently and would have changed the outcome here. The accountability review board has looked at this, people have looked at it.”

When I presented evidence to my business partner that he was stealing he said, “I’m offended you’d say that.” I continued and he kept saying he found the discussion offensive. I finally said, “Go ahead and be offended. See you in court.”

I think sooner or later the truth needs to rear its ugly head.

Ozero is just a Manchurian and valjar runs the show. She is the defacto potus. Were I to wonder who ran the show on the night of the Benghazi attacks I would be looking her way first and foremost.

I think Wallace nailed Pfeiffer to the wall, making the point that Obama claims he told Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to protect the people in Benghazi, then NEVER checked back to find out if his “order” had been followed.

Pfeiffer said he doesn’t recall what room Obama was in. That’s because Obama was either in bed in the bedroom or or the couch in an adjoining room.

And Pfeiffer is 100% wrong. There was plenty to U. S. military could have done that night. Plenty. They were not allowed to, and THAT is Obama’s fault.

This “Offensive” line may have worked in the presidential debate with a biased moderator and a weak Republican candidate, but now we’re dealing with the real world.

Oddly, there is a point here.
It doesn't matter if Obama was shooting hoops.
It doesn't matter if Obama was playing golf.
It doesn't matter if Obama was wondering whose ass to kick.
It doesn't matter if Obama campaign fund raising.
It doesn't matter if Obama was lying to the public.
The fact is 4 Americans are dead to preserve Obama's re-election slogan "I defeated terrorism" because the Commander in Chief did not authorize a rescue attempt when there were US military assets in the region and sufficient time to attempt a rescue.
It does matter that Obama has American blood on his hands.

This crap about “i’m offended” is just that, such crap. I frequently have to tell my clients who have picked up that mantra that the world does not guarantee them a right to not be “offended”.

The whole political spectrum today is “offensive” to me.

You know, in this country, and overseas, firemen, EMTs, doctors, nurses, police, soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and ordinary American citizens move Heaven and Earth each and every day to help their fellow man. That Obama can't do this is telling. That his flunkies can't have the honor to tell us where he was tells me it is not good.

I know I am preaching to the choir...

Yes!!!!! We should have gone on the Offensive!

Rolling over and playing dead only gets us dead! Time to go on the Offensive! Let them roll over and be dead!

And all his little buddies along the way are accomplices pending obstruction and perjury at the least.

Obama works for me. I get to critique his performance. So does every American. He’s a President and not a king. If the kitchen is too hot for him, tell him to go sit on an iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic and cool his dumbass off.

After the way they attacked Bush’s continuing to read to the children, and his not immediately returning to Washington on 9/11/01, you bet your ass Obama’s whereabouts on 9/11/12 matters.

The absence of credibility and truth coming from this administration is offensive as is their consistent and across the board mantra of crisis / scandal irrelevancy and denial. What is obvious is that this administration is manned by common criminals intentionally subverting law to destabilize this country. It appears they are wining.

Just for the sake of argument, let's say that Obama did tell the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to take action and protect the people in Benghazi. Obviously, that directive was never carried out. If that's the case, why didn't Obama go ballistic over the fact that his order was ignored? Why wasn't someone (or several people) relieved of their command or otherwise diciplined over this? What kind of Commander in Chief would just shrug his shoulders and say "oh, well", after his direct order was ignored by the military? It just doesn't add up.

Yes..not us.

I kinda am a little perturbed, though about Limbaugh's “low information voter thing.”

To my mind they, the leeches, aren't ‘low information’; they just plain don't give a flying flip, and in a lot of cases, they KNOW full well what is going on but don't care because actual work, ethics, and civic duty is the last thing on their mind. They gettin’ paid.

They actually tacitly approve of the children they acknowledge playing games like ‘knock-out’, 'flash looting a convenience store and the like. But they're ‘still good kids, just now turning their lives around.... The others are just EBT leeches sucking off the 85+ entitlement programs and 'in your face' defiant about how 'we' OWE them because they exist.

They get off on Obama sticking it to old white men and Tea Partiers and those that actually believe in God. An America they'd ever pick up a gun to defend or give that last full measure of devotion is the farthest thing from their collective imbecilic minds.

Remember when Zero told people to, "Get in their faces. Argue with them."?

The condescending manner in which Miller treated those questioning him at the H&W committee, and now this Pfieffer dude (especially when on FNC!), show the utter contempt zero and his "people" feel for anyone who dares to question Dear Leader.

Barry was not voted in by a large margin, and when you factor in the outright fraud (multiple or dead Dem votes, etc ) combined with the voter and even campaign suppression represented by this IRS attack on conservatives, probably Obama would not have won. Because Romney was a lousy candidate with no program, he didn’t generate a cheat-proof margin.
