Pants on fire….
Petraeus tells Congress that ‘Obama administration altered CIA talking points’ on Benghazi
The “act of of terrorism” part ‘mysteriously’ disappeared from the talking points.
A big Red Flag….China in the Azores? Sequestration may cost the US the base. While it has been little used, the base is strategic in and of itself. If China takes over we are boxed in on all sides. Read it all.
Terceira, however, has one big attraction for Beijing: Air Base No. 4. Better known as Lajes Field, the facility where Premier Wen’s 747 landed in June is jointly operated by the U.S. Air Force and its Portuguese counterpart. If China controlled the base, the Atlantic would no longer be secure. From the 10,865-foot runway on the northeast edge of the island, Chinese planes could patrol the northern and central portions of the Atlantic and thereby cut air and sea traffic between the U.S. and Europe. Beijing would also be able to deny access to the nearby Mediterranean Sea.
Looks as if I am not the only one disgusted by Obama’s remarks about Rice at his presser-which-wasn’t, covered by a fawning media who let’s BO get away with diversion and BS. His remarks concerning McCain and Graham were belittling and unnecessary. If Susan Rice can’t handle criticism for her remarks, then she really doesn’t need to be nominated for SoS. She would be up against some very big boys in that position. Will BO come riding to her rescue then? What a sexist he is, first hiding behind Clinton’s and Rice’s skirts, then trying to play Galahad. The media, as always, pandered and played their bit parts in the Obama Drama. Obviously, there must be something wrong with me for not being able to see the infatuation so many women have for this boy-man who sounded more like the playground Lothario then the leader of the free world. I find it totally disgusting when any woman shouts out from a crowd “I love you” and he says “I love you back”. His disdain for women is obvious to me. He honestly just mouths words he thinks women want to hear and, acts like he’s their sugar daddy. The flattery is false and in poor taste. So is the assumption he will take care of everything if they just don’t think and keep believing in him. Sounds like every abusive marriage or relationship I’ve seen in my lifetime.
Powers described the president’s performance as “bizarrely” casting Rice “as some delicate flower the boys should stop picking on” for her post-Benghazi comments. “There is no damsel in distress and Obama’s paternalistic bravado in defense of a top administration official is going to come back to haunt him,” Powers wrote.
During a presidential press conference yesterday, the president rebuked Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham for their ongoing “attacks” on Rice regarding whether or not she had purposely misled the public in the wake of the September attacks that left four Americans dead.
The Democratic analyst took particular exception with Obama characterizing Rice as “an easy target,” writing that “it’s absurd and chauvinistic for Obama to talk about the woman he thinks should be Secretary of State of the United States as if she needs the big strong man to come to her defense because a couple of Senators are criticizing her.”
She continued: “The conceit of Obama’s argument is that people are picking on a helpless girl — a lowly U.N. ambassador — because they are afraid of the big bad president. Oh, please.”
Powers has been one of the few Democratic critics of the president’s handling of the Benghazi attacks, and she wrote in the column that “President Obama, incredibly, claimed that he was “happy to have the discussion” about Benghazi. Really? Because every time anyone asks the president about Benghazi he claims he can’t say anything because there is an investigation going on.”
Obviously caught up in his own silly yarn about meanie Senators and helpless U.N. Ambassadors, the President complained, “When they go after the U.N. ambassador apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me.”
Imagine George Bush saying that people criticized John Bolton because he was an “easy target.” He wouldn’t.
It’s absurd and chauvinistic for Obama to talk about the woman he thinks should be Secretary of State of the United States as if she needs the big strong man to come to her defense because a couple of Senators are criticizing her.
A note to the small minded women who voted Obama into the White House; No, he’s not that into you. No, he will never be into you. No, he will not keep his word to you. No, he will not protect you from life’s misfortunes. No, he is not now your sugar daddy, nor will he ever be.
