(Associated Posers) – WASHINGTON DC – The moderate Republicans who look for any excuse, no matter how flimsy to join the Democrats on any issue are “troubled” by the inability of Susan Rice and this administration to offer a reason to forget about Benghazi. This administration does not care to attempt to offer any plausible reasoning for its bald-faced lies to the American people for two weeks after the terrorist strike against the US mission in Benghazi, Egypt.
Immediately after the terrorist attack this administration attempted to place the blame on a youtube video for “inflaming” Muslims and said that a protest against the video got out of hand and turned violent. Now we know that this President was told within a day or two that there was no protest against the video. Indeed, he was told straight up that this was a planned and executed terror strike.
So why did this administration and their media minions continue to trot out the lie that this had something to do with an online video? Why did Susan Rice get the order to appear on the Sunday morning talk shows to blame the video instead of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? Did Hillary refuse to do the lying that Susan Rice was all too happy to do?
While the President blamed a video, even standing in front of the United Nations declaring “the future does not belong to those who blaspheme Islam”, he knew and had known the truth for weeks.
White House spokesperson Jay Carney said today that the President is “not particularly concerned” about whether or not Susan Rice mislead the American people.
He also doesn't seemed to concerned about a lot of things. He seems to believe that showing up and giving a speech will solve problems. Like the devastation that Sandy left behind in New York and New Jersey. It has been nearly a month and many people still wait for the “immediate help” they were promised.
It's okay. He was given a participation trophy for showing up. Governor Chris Christie and NYC Mayor Bloomberg lavished him with praise for his “response to the storm” before he had done anything more than show up for an hour and make a speech.
That is also how he got his Nobel Award. He didn't have to actually do anything to “earn” that, he just showed up. It was sort of like a Nobel Participation Trophy.
When it comes to the so-called “fiscal cliff” which is a euphemism for “holy crap, we can't afford this, let's pretend to fix this” he will doubtlessly show up and demand a trophy. He won't actually do a thing to fix the economic problems that his policies are making worse, but he will give a speech and look to be lavished with praise as if he had.
It is long past time to take off the training wheels and for the media to actually get interested in making this President act like a grown up. It is high time for the press to stop handing out those daily certificates of merits and little gold stars to this White House for simply being present. It is high time those Republicans in Congress who still have a spine stand up and say it like it is.
“No More Trophies for Showing Up!!”
