The idea that this President went on a fake news show on a comedy network and dared utter one word about four men who died as a result of his own incompetence is disgusting. Doesn't he get that it really happened?

Will this generate as much outrage as a governor reviewing a binder of women's resumes for job opportunities?




President Barack Obama, during an interview to be shown on Comedy Central, has responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the Benghazi attack, by saying: 'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.' Read more: Read more:

Well unfortunately FoxNews will always be a much bigger joke than anything else on cable, and yet conservative politicians use it to pander to their supporters.


And I believe it was Romney who politicized the Benghazi attacks five minutes after they happened. Because he's an arrogant fool who has little respect for those who died that day. He made that clear in the 2nd debate. Guess you didn't watch it.


Do your homework before you get offended by semantics

I honestly don't understand your gripe. Did you watch the show? I did. His comment is no different than saying the death of four Americans is not what we want. I guess people will interpret it to hear what they want. Oh yeah, and he was in town for a benefit. So what if tv shows are how they campaign now. Times are changing.

Oh just give it up.

The Right's crying and whining and continuing to try to politicize Americans death is starting to border on flat out mental illness.

No shame at all in using the deaths of Americans as political pawns and objects to push agendas.

Fake outrage and lies.

It surprises me in no way that Obama made jokes about the deaths of any american citizens. He does and has said many things that should anger Americans, as he goes against what american ideals used to be on a pretty consistent basis. He has caused more harm than good as far as traditional American values should be (and used to be).

As far as your link is concerned OP, it just takes me to the main page, and I am having a hard time locating the article.

so...your saying it..is optimal?

Guess I am not understanding where your going with this.
Or...

Actually, nevermind. lets face it. Your offended that this guy keeps breathing..that offends you..and anything that makes sounds that comes from his mouth is somehow an attack on you.

No worries...

only 4 more years and you don't have to even hear about him anymore.

He made jokes?

What were those jokes? Or are you just typing to see if your keyboard still works?

Wrong wording. Apologies. I meant comments. I was thinking that he is a joke at the time and I typed it.

I'm not sure I like his casual mentioning of their deaths either. It makes their deaths look immaterial in his comments. And I like how he stated after about the "next four years of his presidency." Someone seems very confident. But it is Obama, and he will be the first to tell everyone how great he is.

To me he seems to be detached from reality, something just isn't right.

It isn't optimal if Americans get killed.

What is your point? Do you not know what the word optimal means or something? You think Americans getting killed is a good thing?

op·ti·mal
adjective ˈäp-tə-məl
Definition of OPTIMAL
: most desirable or satisfactory : optimum

I'll translate it for you;

Obama; It is a bad thing when Americans get killed.

The ambassador and three aides were sodomized, tortured and then murdered, and Obama's choice of response goes from a bump in the road to not optimal. Only the kool-aid consuming supporters want to give him four more years.

I'll tell you what; Obama has been far less than optimal as president, and has a far from optimal record.

Most favorable or desirable? So just what the heck is "optimal" for Americans being killed? Is ten optimal,? twenty,? fifty more favorable or desirable?.... apparently the four killed in the Behgahzi attack is just a "bump in the road" for Obama.

The right doesn't whine any more than the left and the OP can post any topic she likes, that is with in TOS.

I don't think the Stewart show is an acceptable venue for these sort of topics myself and I think it diminishes the office of the presidency, he seems afraid of the tough questions.

What President Obama secretly told a town hall participant about the Libya attack after the debate ...

He tried to explain that the reason he took so long between that initial announcement in the Rose Garden and about two weeks later when he formally announced it as an act of terrorism,




So he gets right down off the stage and admits he didn't call it an act of terror, make up my mind.

sodomized and tortured?

I didn't read that (or i cant remember)

not saying your wrong but can you back that up ?

I don't believe the people doing the looting were innocent of the deaths, but i didn't think they sodomized and tortured.

I like the comment above

... if Obama breathes people use it as a reason to hate him. How on earth Bush got away with what he did, yet Obama gets singled out I will never understand.
