Barack Makes A Funny – Four Americans Remain Quite Dead

People Say The Silliest Things At Altitude And Distance

A lot of people are angry about a lot of things concerning Barack Obama’s ongoing SCOAMF*-Fiesta in the nation of Libya.  I addressed what it reinforced to me about his administration in a recent diary.  Barack Obama exists at altitude and distance from the results of any decisions that he makes.  He takes responsibility for his leadership decisions as President about as much as I take responsibility for playing the wrong guy on my fantasy football team.

He demonstrated his utter lack of concern about what happened by sending out Susan Rice and Stephanie Cutter to tell 1,001 Arabian Lies about what transpired on that fatal anniversary of 9/11 in Benghazi, Libya.  When lying and blame shifting didn’t work, he ignored the first rule of holes** and continued his descent.  He wants us to believe the whole thing is just a bump in the road – so inconsequential that he can poke a little fun at himself over at Comedy Central.

Here’s how President Obama tries to just laugh the whole deal off and get back to the really gut-level critical stuff like Big Bird.  He responds to Jon Stewart below.

Stewart asked: ‘Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions? ‘Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within.  Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page.’ Obama responded: ‘Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.’

It’s a bummer.  He’s sorry.  Like the last time he got ticketed for double-parking or pulling a California Stop at some intersection.  Pat Smith, the mother of killed US Diplomat Sean Smith, was predictably and rightfully livid.  She offered up the following commentary.

‘My son is not very optimal – he is also very dead.’  She continued.  ‘It was a disrespectful thing to say and I don’t think it’s right. ‘How can you say somebody being killed is not very optimal? I don’t think the President has the right idea of the English language.’

Ma’am, he certainly does.

I am not a fan of Erin Burnett of CNN, but every now and then, she does her homework:

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter n CNN

Erin Burnett, CNN host: So you’re saying if you lower them by 20% you get a $5 trillion tab, right?

Stephanie Cutter: It’s a $5 trillion tab.

Burnett: But then when you close deductions it’s not going to be anywhere near $5 trillion, that’s our analysis.

Cutter: Well, okay, stipulated. It won’t be near $5 trillion but it’s also not going to be the sum of $5 trillion in the loopholes that he’s going to close. So it is going to cost someone and it’s going to cost the middle class. Independent economists have taken a look at this. There aren’t enough deductions for those at the top to account for the number of tax cuts that they get because of Mitt Romney’s policy so you have to raise taxes on the middle class. As Bill Clinton said, it’s just simple math.

Burnett: Okay, they’ll just say that you can do that. They’re are other studies. I know the one to which you’re referring, but there’s also the possibility of economic growth.

Cutter: Prove it. Erin, prove it.

By now, everyone has seen the Obama PAC ad of Joe Soptic, which implies that his wife died as a result of Mitt Romney’s actions at Bain Capital. Forget the facts: Mrs. Soptic was on her own health insurance, that GST offered Mr. Soptic a buyout, that Mrs. Soptic got sick several years after her husband was laid off from GST. But those are just facts.

Obama campaign rep Stephanie Cutter “laughed” when Wolf Blitzer asked her about this ad on CNN, and went on to say she knew nothing about the facts….. but….. Joe Soptic gave his story to a conference call in May hosted by ….. Stephanie Cutter. And Mr. Soptic, he appeared in an ad put out by the Obama team’s Organizing for America even before the May phone conference call.

Is anyone out there astute enough to question the filming of these ads, which are supposedly by two separate organizations? Hhhhmm. Mr. Soptic has on the same shirt in BOTH ADS.

There has been no word from Obama or the White House that would say that they thought the latest Soptic ad was false and misleading. And the laughing Ms. Cutter being caught in a blatant boldfaced lie.

Should the Obama campaign dismiss Ms. Cutter?


Right now the biggest political story of the day is the disgraceful ad released by the pro-Obama super PAC, Priorities USA, that shamelessly, openly, and falsely blames Mitt Romney for the death of a woman afflicted with cancer. In the ad, a man named Joe Soptic tells a tragic but completely misleading story that lays the unfortunate death of his wife at Romney’s feet.  The ad is so outrageous, even the mainstream media has demanded the Obama Campaign repudiate it.

The response from the Obama camp has uniformly been to declaratively deny any knowledge of the content in the ad. This includes Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter, Obama Campaign Senior Adviser Robert Gibbs, and Obama Campaign Spokesperson Jen Psaki.

So, you have the biggest political story in the country, you have three Obama officials (two of them very high-profile) playing Who me? when it comes to the story, and then you discover the following….

But Cutter hosted an Obama campaign conference call in May in which Soptic told reporters the very story featured in the Priorities spot.

…what do you do?

Well, if you’re the corrupt Politico, you dutifully report but bury what is very big news that could affect Your Precious One’s credibility.
