Leno: DADT is back — it’s “Obama’s new policy for questions on Libya”

posted at 2:41 pm on October 31, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

While Jay Leno has no trouble finding occasion to poke fun at Republicans, last night he made a joke at President Obama’s expense last that contained an all-too-accurate observation:

Well, ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ is back — not for gays in the military, it’s President Obama’s new policy for questions about Libya. Don’t ask, don’t tell! Well, that’s the big story, the Republicans are accusing the White House of successfully engineering a massive coverup on the Libyan attack, but on the plus side, it’s the first time Republicans are giving credit to Obama for doing anything successfully.

We’re more than seven weeks out from the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, but we’re still left trying to put together an accurate picture of what actually happened and the White House is still deflecting questions. As the Weekly Standard wonders, we have heard from various government officials, but that has left us with still more questions about Obama’s commanding-in-chief:

So here’s where we are: Petraeus has made clear the CIA wasn’t responsible for the decision not to act. Panetta has tried to take the responsibility himself—and the White House has seemed to encourage this interpretation of events. But Panetta’s position is untenable: The Defense Department doesn’t get to unilaterally decide whether it’s too risky or not to try to rescue CIA operators, or to violate another country’s air space. In any case, it’s inconceivable Panetta didn’t raise the question of what to do when he met with the national security adviser and the president at 5 p.m. on the evening of September 11 for an hour. And it’s beyond inconceivable he didn’t then stay in touch with the White House after he returned to the Pentagon.

So the question remains: What did President Obama do that evening (apart from spending an hour on the phone with Prime Minister Netanyahu)? What did he know, and what did he decide, and what was the basis for his decisions?

Of course, when I say that “we” are still left with questions, I only mean the people who are bothering to be interested in this travesty of a security failure — because there seem to be a lot of people within a certain profession who are actively disinterested, as Charles Krauthammer argued last night: “You could argue that it takes Libya off the front pages, but then again, it wasn’t on the front pages in the first place. It is the mainstream media, who spent hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of articles on the supposed outing of a CIA agent in the Bush administration, in which she was safely in Washington and never in danger, has an epidemic of incuriosity about the murder of an ambassador.”

FEMA was created to help people with administrative details in applying for reimbursements from the government. It was never intended to buy mobile homes that no one uses or send in supplies that no one needs. Instead, these resources are best distributed at the state and local level. The problem is there are too many incompetent liberals like Blanco and Nagan at the state and local levels.

He did. He said (paraphrasing) that government spending needed to be reigned in, and that there were too many federal programs that overlapped one another. The FIRST time he was asked about FEMA, he answered that it served a purpose, and would not be dismantled.

Asking him 14 questions looking for a different result isn’t going to pass muster as “Romney wants to dismantle FEMA.”

Weakest trolls ever!

Romney ignored 14 direct questions about FEMA yesterday. I guess having a position of wanting to gut FEMA makes one unwilling to talk about it in the aftermath of a devestating hurricane.

You would never understand this…yesterday was not a day of campaigning, but a day of bringing people together, of giving, of raising funds and emergency supplies, of giving hope.
Asking political questions, when the candidates, both of them, said they were suspending for a day or two, is typical cheesy bush league journalism…but you would not understand that…a concept way beyond anything…

BTW, a president, after over a month, still hasn’t answered basic questions about Libya, and him watching our men die fighting for their lives, while he was snacking in the Oval orifice.

Yeah, that’s it, isn’t that the truth, there was a day when some trolls had a little class, intelligence…these guys are just plain stupid.

Eager for the scraps, much? Leno opened with only one anti-Dem joke, which was clearly just an excuse to launch into two or three anti-Repub jokes.

Way to fall for it every time, suckers. *facepalm*

FEMA, created under Carter…what did we do before that? The states took care of their problems.
Now FEMA is some mystical organization that swoops in and makes every thing right.

Your wish is my command. What shall we have a go at?

How about the thread topic??

Or you could always tell us more about that Quinton Tarantino movie with Michael Vick and the Bane Batman guy.

I think people are more shocked that someone on NBC put the word “Benghazi” and “president” in the same sentence.

We’ll get over our shock shortly.

Actually, this it looks like Leno went back-and-forth, which is fine. It’s nice that professional comedians, after four years, have finally given themselves permission to crack Obama jokes openly.

Christien on October 31, 2012 at 3:50 PM

Leno surprised me with that one…
