Reruns

May 30, 2013

I have been watching the recent Obama press conferences. They remind me of the '60's series Hogan's Heroes. Remember Sgt Schultz and his favorite answer to a question: "I know nothing ....

It's a shame you 'Baggers weren't paying-attention, right from the start. You'd have KNOWN that Christopher Stevens had a BAD-habit of taking too-many risks...and, had no business hanging-out at a CIA-site. Their TOP Priority was securing data/info/records/intel, rather-than babysitting some government-official.

My son had this item on his fb page. I clicked on the link and was amazed at the similarity between Nixon and Obama EXCUSES. The biggest difference? Watch the video and pay attention to the LAST PART.

Just go to you tube and enter the following in the search box......Be prepared to laugh!!!!

"Which is it, the President is the ultimate manipulating super villan and puppet master in chief that pulls every string, and controls everything that happens as he sits back and chuckles while twirling his non existant moustache? Or he has no idea what's going on and doesn't control anything?" - CHayes

"conservatives" DO seem to have an affinity for perpetual-confusion.

That the President "lied" about who attacked? He clearly didn't, but even if he had, is that against the law?" - CHayes

I'm thinking/assuming the major "issue" was an effort to be "transparent", when Susan Rice was sent-out; an effort to keep everyone informed, real-time. HUGE mistake, considering Republicans' "tendency" to jump on every-little-thing. They SHOULD have said NOTHING; pending a full-investigation.

Thanks for clearing that up Michael if I may call you that.

So what you're telling us then is if a MASSIVE terrorist attack happens while a Republican is President, that's a reason to support him for a second term.

If a substantially smaller terrorist attack happens on a Democratic President's watch, it's a reason for impeachment.

3000 people killed on US soil=vote for second term

4 people killed on Libyan soil=impeachment

I happen to have a problem with that.

C Hayes- "So then you did in fact vote for President Bush twice, and the second vote was at least partially motivated by the events of 9/11/01?" Yes and Yes,2nd part of your question is because i knew he had the Guts to get the job done. He also had & has integrity which Obama has none of in my opinion.

So I asked for only FIVE examples of the president saying at PRESS CONFERENCES the words "I know nothing", or even "I don't know" in the past 6 months.

The letter writer claimed that it was the MOST COMMON THING that the president said at press conferences. If that's true, my request isn't a high bar to achieve. Yet I'm still waiting.

"US President Barack Obama has said that he had no idea about Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé's trip to Cuba. "I wasn't familiar that they were taking the trip," Obama told NBC's Today."

is it your claim that the POTUS, whoever it may be, should be constantly tracking the whereabouts of celebrities?

"Ronbo, the conservative savior always used the phrase "Well, I don't remember""

President Reagan actually did have a legitimate problem with Alzheimer's for most of his second term. Legend has it that when he went to give his videotaped testimony to SP Lawrence Walsh in the Iran Contra scandal, that it became almost immediately clear that president Reagan had little idea who or where he was.

I remember when the word "scandal" was used when there was an allegation that someone broke the law. Now it's tossed about when an elected official does something that someone doesn't agree with. It doesn't help that the word "scandal" sells newspapers and drives ratings.

It's called presidential deniability. Every president has a trusted inner circle that will protect the chief executive; otherwise we would be in perpetual impeachment mode. Ronbo, the conservative savior always used the phrase "Well, I don't remember"

Waiting. It would seem nobody is able to provide quotes to back up the central premise of the letter.

Apparently another one is debunked.

"his favorite answer to a question:

"I know nothing .""

Since I completely disagree with this characterization, I'd like to ask if someone could provide 5 direct quotes by the President from press conferences in the 6 months, where he says the words "I know nothing" or even "I don't know".

I'd ask for direct quotes, NOT paraphrases with someone's interpretation of what the President meant.

Considering the letter writer says that this is the most common thing the President says at press conferences, and the transcripts for all Presidential press conferences are readily available online, this should be a piece of cake if true.

And I noticed michaelpaternostro, that you can't answer exactly what law was broken, or articulate in any way, why a terrorist attack on a diplomatic mission in one of the most dangerous stations on earth is a "scandal", while the devastating terrorist attack on 9/11/01 was nothing more than reason for you to vote a second time for President Bush.

You see my problem here?

"C Hayes, what has the President done to retaliate against the TERRORISTS?"

Are you joking? Ever hear of drone strikes? Oh that's right, right wingers went berserk, when a drone strike was used against a so called American citizen, that had thrown down with al Qaeda.

How long did it take George W Bush to capture or kill the person that orchestrated the Sept 11th attacks that killed THREE THOUSAND AMERICANS? Oh, that's right. President Bush disbanded the CIA Bin Laden unit. It took President Obama to get that job done.

C Hayes, what has the President done to retaliate against the TERRORISTS? As far as Benghazi is concerned. He sure has lied about it enough thats for sure.This President doesnt come even close to the stature of John McCain or even John Rambo for that matter. You really shoulnt question my Patriotism as you know nothing of it. If it was the most dangerous mission on earth than Hillary should not have denied the requests for more security, But, "Whats the Difference" anyways. The terrorists know that Obamas resolve is weak hence the attack in the first place.

Is the point of this letter that the guy the right has been running around calling a "totalitarian dictator" for 4 years has no idea what's going on in govt, and thus no control over it?

Isn't that something of a 180?

Which is it, the President is the ultimate manipulating super villan and puppet master in chief that pulls every string, and controls everything that happens as he sits back and chuckles while twirling his non existant moustache? Or he has no idea what's going on and doesn't control anything?

Is the letter writer claiming that the guy that they claim is so calculating that he wants to set up 'death panels" to deny healthcare to conservatives, and set up gun registrations so he can confiscate every firearm in the US, and march right wingers off to extermination camps, actually has no idea what's happening?
