No its not optimal. How many people die a day are their deaths optimal to you... Is is optimal to you that a kid in Africa has just died from lack of water...

It's always so illuminating how you right-wingers always take comments out of context -- just like FAUX news and its fellow travelers in the media do. Obama was asked by John Stewart whether what happened in Benghazi was "optimal" -- yes, Stewart used specifically that word. So Obama directly answered the question, using the same word. I understand how it sounds impersonal and euphemistic, and how the mother of one of the slain Americans from the consulate would be offended/put off by it, but Obama was just directly answering the question.

But keep up the feigned indignation on your part, Obama haters and detractors; you just make yourself look ridiculous to those who don't share your pitcher of kool-aid.

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.'

You conveniently forget to mention that Jon Stewart set up the question by asking him first if it was Optimal and used the word himself and you are under the delusion that Jon Stewart Comedy Central is something like FOX News, a fake news show. It isn't.

Spoken like a true right wing hater. People are like mad dogs foaming at the mouth. I hated Bush too but I didn't resort to flat out making things up. I even realized he WAS trying his best to do what he believed in and admit he was a good father but one of the worst Presidents this country has ever had the misfortune to endue.

It is officially unconfirmed. That does not mean it is unreliable. At this time they are not releasing any information.


"They". Who is that?

Answer me that, and you will hopefully understand why I say that the information is "unreliable". "They" have an interest in keeping your jimmies rustled over those troublesome Muslims. So adding in a little embellisment here and there....that is how it works.



That may be the case. However it is a tradition in the middle east to sodomize captives and has been for a good while.

WWI pilots, british, were told to keep in mind to save the last round in thier pistol for themselves. If they were shot down over certain areas over there they knew what to expect. I read this myself from an old book writtne by a WW1 pilot about his time there.

Also, there was a pilot, american, that was shot down and captured durring the 1st gulf war and he tesitifed of the truth of this tradition.

Also watch U-Tube "Iron Shiek Goes Nuts". He talks about the "old country way" as he calls it. Hes from Iran.

Yea right - tell his grieving mother that..................

'My son is not very optimal - he is very dead':



So if her dead son's death is not optimal, then that means she apparently thinks him being dead is optimal. Obama never said her son was optimal. He said her sons death and the response to it was not optimal. That is ok, a lot of you seem really ignorant of the English language. Hell, the OP had to go to college for it and still gets it wrong so you all and this mom get a pass on not understanding words



It sounds cold and out of touch with the personal costs and realities.

Clinton called them "assests", as do others. This sort of language is used by folks that cant seem to afford thinking about the cost. Like the term "colateral damage".......made to soften the blow, keep it at a distance, ruduce it to $ and centos ect so to say.

Obama is so easy to despise.

It's offensive to see the POTUS interviewed on a comedy "news" show (where the news is played for laughs) when the subject is as unfunny as a terrorist attack on a US Consulate (an act of war) where four Americans were tortured (some possibly sodomized) and killed.

The attack happened in two different waves and took place over five hours. How terrifying it must have been for Ambassador Stevens and the other Americans there.

Stewart: "Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions of Security, not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within? Because...I don't know...I would say even you would admit it was not the optimal reponse, at least to the American people, as far as us all being on the same page."

Obama: "This is what I will say, if four Americans get killed, it's not optimal. And we're going to fix it...."

It amazes me how the rabid Obama fans cannot discern how callous Obama's response sounds. It sounds facile, glib, dismissive, and unfeeling. Then to follow it quickly with an automated, "And we're going to fix it."

As if there were an easy fix or a do-over. Is he going to fix it for the families of the men who died?
Is he going to raise these four men from the dead?

This is NOT manufactured outrage, like the Dems "outrage" over Romney's "binders of women's resumes" comment.

It's too bad your thread was swarmed by Obama fans defending their "messiah." They're so rude & vicious.

Sorry but that's the company you keep


Welcome to American neoconservativism: ignorant, delusional, angry, confused and desperate. It's a shame you don't see it in yourself

As much as I think Barak Obama is a despicable human being I dont think that this is much of a deal at all. I didnt see an issue with his response in which he was using the words that John Stewart was using.

That said..its what he gets for pandering to the stupid vote that get their news from the hard hitting news division of Comedy Central.

It was a failure on the Obama administration. They know it and have admitted it. Watched Special Report with Bret Baire. It was very informative. Had democrats and republicans on it that layed out the time line of the attack. Also emails have been released showing how the ambassador was asking for help, additional security, but according to Lt Colonial Wood, they took away their special detail that they had, even though there was information given to the admin about all the violence.
When it happens on your watch, you have to take the blame.

Just remember, what happens overseas could very easily happen here. If it wasent for our police, FBI, etc we would have been hit a long time ago. We need to keep the shield up and make sure we can defend outselves and not cut our defense. And also give our soldiers the tools that they need to do the job they were sent there to do. Especially when the job is protecting our Americans overseas. Just think how you would feel if that was your dad that died over there under those circumstances. It is absolutely horrible!

I dont quite understand whats going on with this thread.

There seems to be 3 groups of people on this thread.

First off I have no love for Obama, he is a tool like all people in power, but this thread it ludicrous.

1st group who started this thread dont seem to be able to comprehend English or have a full grasp of what some words mean. They seem to be hating on the President because he is black but cant overtly say that because nobody is openly racist in America right, thats just uncivilized...right? They seem to have forgotten the Joke that was Bush and the laundry list of F#@K up he was involved in. In fact wasnt the economy in a surplus because of Clinton and then Bush takes over and the country went into like 13 trillion in debt hahaha pay attention geniuses thats a presidential FAIL.But you clowns re elected him again.

2nd group is trying to argue logic and sense into the first group but it looks harder than trying to teach quantum field theory to monkeys. They dont seem to be able to wrap their heads around the fact that they have been brainwashed to hate the president.

then there is the 3rd group which I fall into who cant understand why there would be such a long and repetitive thread about which president was better or who would make the better president when at the end of the day they all answer to the same boss. Who cares who the president is they all take their orders from the same people.

This is the stats for Ohio
Where Ohio goes, so does the potus.
Now, overall, for popular vote, it is a statistical dead heat at the moment, and trending Obama.

Ask a Kerry or Gore supporter what they think about winning the popular vote, but losing the electorial.

Best to use RealClearPolitics as a source of overall info on polling. reliance on a single poll isn't a good thing. The race was tight for a bit after the first debate. But, that edge is now wiped due to Obama actually showing up for the second debate.
Third debate is foreign policy...ultimately a debate where Obama will be endlessly spiking footballs and Romney pretending he didn't offend england when he went to go visit them...aka, its a softball for obama...

I am not saying 100% Obama will win, but if this were vegas, my money would be taking the wise route.

In regards to Gallup specifically btw, Gallup is a 7 day poll. By tuesday, you will see the actual trending lines on that one poll.
Gallup, for all the work they do, and I do believe them to be non-partisan, they have tended to give conservatives a 5 point addition outside of results..this happened when they called it for Obama in 08, and the republicans in 10. They got it right as to who won, but their margain was much, much higher than any other poll.. (reps won by 7 in 10, gallup had em at 15)
According to the chief editor, the big swing trend to Obama will be coming soon reflected in the new 7 day. this is basically old info left over from D1.

But this is still just a consideration of popular vote over electorial college. Obama doesn't need to win both, just the electorial..however, it would be nice for a potus to win both, that way there is no hard feelings.

I'm beginning to think Obama could sacrifice a baby to the ghost of Montezuma in Times Square, live on prime time television and people would claim it to be a right-wing conspiracy.
