Veracity No Longer Required To Be President

Today, Barack Obama showed why trips to the dentist are more frequent than formal press conferences. Fortunately for him, though, he doesn’t have to demonstrate leadership, honesty, transparency, or a full command of the issues in them to be deemed successful by a fawning White House Press Corps.
Fox News’ Ed Henry did bring up the Benghazi affair, and asked the President a pointed question, which he should have known would not get answer. Henry asked whether the President did authorize a go order to go in an assist the Americans operatives who were under attack by over a hundred terrorists on September 11th, 2012. This was the President’s response:
Never mind the fact you have a reporter giggling about how cool it is that she’s never seen Obama lose, except for the one time as state senator, but then she wasn’t looking. Yes, that exists, too.
Stuttering his way through a 90 second non-answering answer, Obama claims he’s done nothing but put forward all the information he had in Benghazi. It’s simply not true. Nowhere in the process was the spontaneous response to a video ever a fact that was true.
Meanwhile, the stock market came, heard, and tanked. Israel is going it alone in Gaza, being they can’t count on America anymore.
And as for Obama? I got this from Michael Patrick Tracy, who is @conservativela on Twitter. He looked at the official transcript, and Obama used the word “I” 211 times.
It’s gonna be a long four years.
