Obama Confronted on Benghazi at White House Press Conference But Does Not Answer

Obama Confronted on Benghazi at White House Press Conference

Obama went after Republicans today in a complete Chicago-style rant.

“When they go after the UN Ambassador because they think she’s an easy target… They’ve got a problem with me.”

Susan Rice is not only incompetent, she is completely lost as ambassador.

The Washington Examiner has the transcript:

President Obama, irritated by Republican pledges to prevent Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice from receiving a promotion, said that Rice’s critics “have a problem with me.”

“When they go after the UN ambassador apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me,” Obama told reporters today. “And should I choose — if I think that she would be the best person to serve America in the capacity of the State Department [head] then I will nominate her, but that’s not a determination I’ve made yet.”

…“They should go after me, and I’m happy to have that discussion. But for them to go after the UN ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi . . . to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous.”

So if the UN ambassador had nothing to do with Benghazi, why did the White House send her out to all of the networks to lie about the terrorist attack?

Obama’s Press Conference yesterday , his first in 8 months, where he was confronted by Fox News’ Ed Henry about Benghazi. Henry asked him if he issued any orders to send help to the Americans under attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, pointing out that the father of one of the dead said he feels like his son dialed 911 and got no help. Obama avoided the question, with Henry following up, not letting him off the hook. Obama used his “offended” response, saying “if anyone thinks” he didn’t do everything possible blah, blah, blah. But he never described any specific orders to send help – which was in the region – to help the Americans who where under attack for many hours.

arack Obama revealed at his press conference this afternoon that he is responsible for sending U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to speak to the American people a few days after the September 11 Benghazi terror attack.

“As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her,” Obama said at the press conference, defending the statements the ambassador to the U.N. made regarding the Benghazi attack.

Rice has been widely criticized for giving misleading statements about Benghazi. She maintained that the killing of four Americans stemmed for a spontaneous protest that got violent.

Obama playing the offended party (one of his specialties) at his Press Conference yesterday after being asked to respond to news that Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham will do everything they can to block a nomination of Susan Rice to be the Secretary of State in his second term. Obama said the two senators should “go after me” and not Rice because of her false comments that the attack was caused by a video.

If Susan Rice isn't mature enough to take care of herself, what's going to happen if she's SecState and has to tangle with Putin? Putin will eat her up and have Obama for desert.

Rice will be Obama's nomination as an in-your-face thing to Republicans. Any resistance to her nomination will be claimed to be a war on women and you can bet the race card will be blames. If Rush were to use the same exact words against her that the Democrats used against Condi, they will call for his head.

You know, I despise liberals.

obama's mandate has now been approved by the voting public. The fact that more than half of the voters don't know what that mandate is, don't know what the word means or don't care is unimportant now. Expect pure dictator type behavior out of this metrosexual. Marxist, racist, muslim bastard. We are now the king's subjects.
