Absent. On September 11th, when they knew we would be under attac, somewhere. It’s as though Obama didn’t want to have to give the order to defend this nation. Just like his 5 month period of indecision and avoidance over killing bin Laden. I’ve been asking from the start of his presidency: Who is Obama?

    Was he golfing, playing basketball, or campaigning? There has to be evidence out there somewhere about the Preezy’s timeline that day.

    he must of been praying on his prayer rug

  3. radargeek says:

    Another vote of “present” or in this case “absent” for no’ballsma!

  4. Alain41 says:

    The military Chief of Staff who said that even though they knew there was an attack we weren’t called .. is similar to the Calif. emergency employees who watched a suicidal man sink under the water because it was Sunday and they weren’t supposed to work.

  5. ancientwrrior says:

    Tammy posed the question of the Benghazi survivors, where are they? They were whisked away and not heard from since. Could it be that they no longer exist? Dead men tell no tales you know, the prezy and sec. of state can rest easy.

    Let our people twist in the wind in Bengazi, nickel-and-diming our troops at home and shorting them in the field. Getting away with stuff seems to excite and inspire the administration.

      >> Getting away with stuff seems to excite and inspire the administration.<<

      Leftism is a criminal mentality. Getting away with stuff is the entire point, which is why they hate Western Civilization and side with its enemies. Civilization is *supposed* to oppress the criminal and support the virtuous.

      Today, criminals are given chance after chance — the result is death by liberalism of our virtuous, productive, and innocent.

      Human sacrifice of the innocent, virtuous, and productive… Hmmm.

    Since it’s now official that obama wasn’t anywhere near the Situation Room during the Benghazi attacks, the official photoshoppers can have the weekend off.

    So how and when do we start impeachment proceedings?

    • Gordon says:

      Obama’s actions or lack thereof is clearly a case of “dereliction of duty” and in a more patriotic America of the past would have him up for impeachment before he could stuff his pie hole with another piece of pie. However, this event pales in comparison to the outright treason, a “high crime” if ever there was one, in supplying our enemies, namely the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt and their Iranian sponsors, with F-16 fighters.

      • radargeek says:

        Honest question: Would we still be tolerating this incompetent and would have already started impeaching him if he were not “the first black president?”

  11. Piratin says:

    Awesome commentary, Tammy, the best and most thorough one out there. Your anger and disgust speaks for all of us.

    I think Glenn Beck is right with his theory that there a “fake kidnapping” was orchestrated – Ambassador Stevens was to be exchanged for the blind Shi..Sheikh. Then our Seals went in and really fought and really killed and that was not part of Obama’s plan so the savages felt betrayed and subsequently tortured and killed Stevens instead of keeping him alive and safe for the later swap.

    It would explain why the seals were told to stand down and why Obama did not get involved and why Obama did not look the Seals’ parents in the eyes when he met them, instead appearing disconnected.

    Sickening people involved, one and all.

  12. Piratin says:

    Dempsey wrongly made a reference to “the Feb. 17th Militia”. In reality the name of this terrorist group that HIRED BY THE US to “protect” our annex (cspan wrongly refers to the annex as a “consulate”) is the February 17th MARTYRS Brigade. MARTYRS…

    THESE are the men we hired to protect US citizens and here’s why they’ve chosen the name they did – and gosh, they even have their own website!


    and gosh, they even have their own website!

    I have to hand it to Lindsey Graham here. His was the most profound question — and Panetta’s BIZARRE answer — did you know how long this would go on? NO IDEA. Lindsey said, “it could have gone on for 2 days.” they were NEVER going to send anyone? — no matter how long it lasted?? Frankly, it all sounds like a set up, as if everyone KNEW it was going to be short lived. how could they have known they didn’t have time to get there before it was over!? unless they knew how long it would last.

    Also, #1 WHERE ARE THE SURVIVORS? and #2 why is the gay community not SCREAMING if in fact, stevens was gay? the typical lefty gay community of Victims R Us???? suddenly they don’t feel targeted???? when a man is dead, and not only dead, he was brutally raped. what is UP with everyone referring to it as “when amb stevens lost his life.” he was brutally raped, tortured, and murdered. he didn’t just “lose his life.” If I were his MOTHER, i’d be suing the govt and screaming my head off. WHERE IS SHE????

    And finally: WHERE IS THE PRESS??????

  14. tamcat says:

    Obama shows no compassion for life beyond his own agenda of transforming America. Whenever he speaks of any victims, he has to read it from notes.

    • ancientwrrior says:

      Tamcat, that is because he is a pure dark entity, one who’s soul is dead. He is a human cyborg with nothing within. Their mission is to spread misery, fear, and destruction amongst us who still posses a living soul. It is said that the eyes are the windows of the soul, have you ever looked into his eyes, they are flat dead because what is within is dead.

  15. Dave says:

    The man is a complete fraud, cannot make a single principled decision. That is, a decision based on some type of rational traditional principle that a normal American would make to protect one of its own citizens from harm. This man is devoid of common decency whom is utterly self absorbed kind of like a snake. He has no human empathy. An absent mother, an invisible father, constant pandering his whole life and we all pay for his lack of grace.

    • Alain41 says:

      Yes, yes, and yes.

      What I still can’t come to grips on, is why does no one on the left speak out against even one thing that’s gone on. There is not a complete lack of sympathetic intelligence in the left. Ostensibly, that’s what journalists and academic leaders are supposed to do, but total abandonment.

      I don’t know what happened with ‘news journalists’, but regarding academia, it’s clear that this is what happens when you make college affordable with no connection to average income. When I went to college, finances were approx. 1/3 parents (blue collar), 1/3 student loans, and 1/3 my summer jobs. But college costs just kept increasing faster than inflation such that parents income and summer jobs paid for less and less, but more students kept going, so the money kept pouring in. That seemingly endless supply of money not accountable to people’s income, allowed the marxist left to rise to the top of the academic chain.

      ‘Making college affordable’ needs to be from the view of cost to parents income. Once ‘making college affordable’ became print federal gov’t money, then the answer became print more. Obama took that paradigm to the next level. Need to change that paradigm.

        Daniel Henninger, WSJ, just wrote a column on why doesn’t anyone on the left speak up. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324445904578286610481252492.html?mod=opinion_newsreel

        “Who wouldn’t want to live in Washington? It’s a wonderful world, a place where every problem of life can be reduced to just two words. Gun control. Immigration reform. Climate control. The deficit, which of course can be solved in two words: a “balanced approach.” Things so hard haven’t been so simple since Tinker Bell taught children to fly in “Peter Pan,” also with two words—pixie dust… We’re waiting for one Democrat in Congress to express doubt in the president’s pixie dust.”

    Speaking of voting absentee – Lena Dunham has this explanation of not voting in Brooklyn in 2012 Presidential election; “…Dunham said she tried voting absentee, but her ballot didn’t arrive in time, so she flew back to vote with dad at her old polling place….” http://washingtonexaminer.com/lena-dunham-put-on-the-defensive-over-voting-record/article/2520886

    Gee, I didn’t know that if I couldn’t vote at my assigned voting place that I could fly back to my old polling place and vote with dear old dad. Thank goodness the liberals can assure us that there is no fraudalent voting. Tatoos tell no lies, but I can’t say the same for those that they are on.

    The setting and scene: 11-12-2012. The WH. 9:30am, DB is shaving. A little girl interrupts his morning ritual…. “Daddy, what did you do during the war last night?” ….”Viva Las Vegas…Baby” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFw5a5Bp_Pw

  18. Mary says:

    This has me very worried and suspicious. We know there is a HUGE cover up and this “Absent President” story is nothing more than a false lead away from the true story.

    There is something so large and damaging to this administration that they have decided that showing the President MIA that day is the better option – than WHAT? They are insulating him from the “Real Thing” that happen! What was said yesterday at the Hearing was calculated and where are the Benghazi survivors? They know the truth and are missing.It helps that the media didn’t report a thing!

    If you remember, initially they said hDB was kept in the know and released a photo of him looking concern.

    The real question should be, IMHO is “What really happen that night,it is so damaging that they welecome this absent President blow back story over the truth, should it ever get out”? They are now going to claim that DB had NO knowledge of what occured that night.

    It brings me to tears when I think about what has happen to our great country and it sure does seem like the people in power are letting the destruction contuine. Yes, I sometimes feel hopeless to stop it and I pray for a third party or least a powerful group to fight. I think the Tea Party was gone as far as it can go, we more now.

  19. Shifra says:

    Stop the presses! The DB actually spoke the truth… 16 words, and not even one lie. Amazing!


  20. dennisl59 says:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”—Joseph Goebells, Reich Minister for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, Nazi Germany, 1933-1945

    Furthermore: The primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

    President Empty Chair in perfect form. Reminds me of a poem:

    Yesterday, upon the stair
    I saw a man who wasn’t there
    He wasn’t there again today
    Gee, I wish he’d go away!

  22. Dave says:

    Hey dilvish;
    LOL. Very good.

    Reverse of topic; The Seal Team 6 member who shot Bin Laden reviews the movie, Zero Dark Thirty.

    “…“They Hollywooded it up some.” The portrayal of the chief CIA human bloodhound, “Maya,” based on a real woman whose iron-willed assurance about the compound and its residents moved a government to action, was “awesome” says the Shooter. “They made her a tough woman, which she is.””
