Obama compares his campaign volunteers to slain embassy staff

posted at 11:36 am on September 15, 2012 by

In a pep talk, President Obama bizarrely compared the sacrifices made by his campaign volunteers in Nevada to those made by the U.S. ambassador and embassy staff murdered in Libya, The Examiner reports based on a press pool report.

Obama is quoted as saying:

And obviously [our] hearts are broken for the families but I wanted to encourage those folks at the State Department that they were making a difference. The sacrifices that our troops and our diplomats make are obviously very different from the challenges that we face here domestically but like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than we’re doing … I’m just really proud of you.

Obama also detailed part of his “words of comfort” to “friends and co-workers of the folks who had fallen,” which included the reminder:

As hard as things are sometimes, as difficult as change is that if we’re resolute, if we don’t give up, if we don’t give in, if we don’t become cynical, if we continue to be realistic about how hard change is but also keep in our hearts that sense of idealism and sense of purpose then over time good things happen.

It is hard to imagine a sentiment that would be more out of place than—unless it was one where the president credits his misguided supporters with doing God’s work.

Just when you think bho can’t get any lower, he never fails to just keep going lower! bho is a petty little man with zero compassion from the statements he makes on the likes of those murdered by those sub-humans!

He’s talking about himself and his reelection trials.
This person makes me sick.

oh, yeah, well, barry certainly isn’t the cause of the arab spring mega-meltdown but it’s still somehow all about him.

NPD. and i am now convinced he’s a sociopath. he’s before a grieving nation and the grieving relations of human beings who were savagely, brutally murdered. a man’s corpse was paraded around and used as propaganda for mass murderers( because they always parade infidel corpses around. i’d bet the murder is on film- they love doing that too because they are EVIL sociopaths. bet if there is a film of it there won’t be any hand wringing over it as opposed to say a stupid youtube video about mohammad.) and this piece of trash is still talking about Himself, His campaign and His lust for re-election. all over the dead bodies of americans he took an oath of office to protect . the behavior of an empathy less sociopath and malignant narcissist.

when someone else dies it’s about him.

when people are murdered, slain at our embassies, it’s about him.

except when it comes to responsibility for anything than it’s probably bush’s fault.

I’m starting to think drug abuse should disqualify someone from being president.

These people didn’t “make sacrifices.” They were MURDERED.

A President’s job is to bring those murders and enemies of America, freedom and civilization itself to JUSTICE.

As near as I can tell, that never even occurred to the man. People who were depending on Obama to defend them die on his watch; and all that happens is his head swells a little bit more. “Just imagine how much they must have loved me; to lay down their lives so willingly…. Now follow their glorious example; get out there and stuff those ballot boxes!”

Barack Hussein Obama is far, far, far beyond mere lunacy.
