I listened to as much of today's press conference, the first in what? Nine months? as I could before I had to go to work. As I expected, it was mostly repeated campaign slogans about the 2% paying their fair share and the middle class...zzzzzz...
But then someone ticked him off asking about Susan Rice and her lies to the American People through the Sunday news shows 5 days after 4 Americans were killed in Benghazi. President Obama seemed to take offense that the reporter attacked this poor defenseless woman (where are the feminists?). The President told the reporter that if he had a problem with Ambassador Rice, he had a problem with the President.
The President admitted today, in the press conference that he told Ambassador Rice to go on tv and LIE to the American People. He said that she was just relaying what the White House had told her. The White house at that time knew that this had been a terrorist attack and yet they had Rice tell us that it was over some idiotic movie trailer. So yes.
I agree that we have a problem with the President. A President that tells the Ambassador to the UN to go on television and lie to Americans should surely be taken to task.
And no one in the media will do so.
They are too busy asking him about General Petreaus and General Allen and a couple of women who enjoyed the company of men. Or about how he is going to make sure the fiscal cliff is avoided, but not on the backs of the middle class.
Oh, and for those of you who missed it. He did not say that letting the tax cuts expire on the rich was his line in the sand, he wouldn't say it. That means that he is going to kick the can down the road, as he has for the last 4 years (along with Congress), and the next President can whine about how she inherited this crappy economy from George Bush.
