No words:

President Barack Obama compared his campaign volunteers to the American officials killed in Libya, saying that ‘like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than we’re doing’.

Obama’s remarks came during a meeting with volunteer leaders in Las Vegas. ‘And obviously [our] hearts are broken for the families but I wanted to encourage those folks at the State Department. that they were making a difference, he said, according to a pool report.

‘The sacrifices that our troops and our diplomats make are obviously very different from the challenges that we face here domestically but like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than we’re doing….I’m just really proud of you.’

Obama also described how he had reminded State Department diplomats in Washington that ‘as difficult as change is’ they had to be resolute and they had to be realistic about ‘how hard change is’ – language that was uncomfortably close to an Obama campaign slogan.

He told the Las Vegas volunteers: ‘I had a chance to go to the State Department to comfort some of the friends and co-workers of the the folks who had fallen and I reminded them that as hard as things are sometimes, as difficult as change is that if we’re resolute, if we don’t give up, if we don’t give in, if we don’t become cynical, if we continue to be realistic about how hard change is but also keep in our hearts that sense of idealism and sense of purpose then over time good things happen.’

Good lord… for starters, our troops aren’t doing what they do because they “sense that we can do better than we’re doing.” They are sacrificing to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Obama makes it sound as if our troops are overseas trying to make the world safe for more Solyndras. The troops are rooting out terrorists to eliminate them, not sell them Chevy Volts.

And Ambassador Stevens died because from all accounts he had a great interest in liberating that country from tyranny. It’s insulting to his family to use his death and others to hawk “change is hard.”

As far as military veterans are concerned… in one aspect Obama is correct. They do seem to sense that we can do better than we’re doing.

    Dear Soldier,

    We, at the White House, know that you are doing all you can to keep this country free. I have asked couples to put us on their registry, kids to send in their birthday money, and even asked families to skip a night out and send us the money.

    Now, it's your turn. We realize that you are dodging bullets, avoiding IED's, and pulling your buddies our of wreckage to save them, but you can do more. Can you send just one of your paychecks in to help fellow comrades-in-arms on my campaign staff?

    They do figuratively all that you do in real life: They dodge questions that are like bullets, explosive situations that far right media outlets like MSNBC takes out of proportion, and we carry each other over the finish line on November 6, 12, or whenever the election is.

    In return for your donation, we'll just keep your ballot safe here in the US, and mark it for you.

    And, if you're E2 or higher, how about two paychecks. It's the least you can do for the team that fights for you here at home.

    Sincerely,

    O

    So Romney pointing out that the Embassy apology was an attack on our First Ammendment rights as well as an attempt at appeasement is considered politicizing the events that occured, but Obama comparing his campaign staff to those slain in a terrorist attack is all good.

    The MSM is proving they have sold their souls yet again.

    His volunteers are soldiers? Let's send them to Egypt!

  4. JetHeadJoe on September 13th, 2012 3:35 pm

    Actually, Obama's volunteers aren't brave at all; they're looking out for their best interests. If Zero gets bounced in November, how else will they survive? It's kinda hard to ride the gravy train once it's derailed.

    You..! Yes YOU manning that phone. What size flak jacket do you wear!? Put down that Dead Voter Call List and report to the 1st Sgt. ASAP!

    Yeah just ridiculous. We can say how overtly sleazy this all is, and it IS. But I see a man losing his freaking mind. Making these types of 'connections' is a sure sign of someone that's in over their head.

    In His case, across the board.

  6. Marshall_Will on September 13th, 2012 3:48 pm

    JHJ,

    The RasPoll Doug links shows as much. 35% of vets in support of 'Obama'? Try again. These are primarily those that landed high paying, cushy GS positions and don't want to face the sober reality of their unsustainable ( and unnecessary ) positions.

    Touche`!

  7. Truesoldier__ on September 13th, 2012 3:51 pm

    So true. God knows you could cut 3/4ths of the staff at my office (we are at the GS-6 level) and we would be doing just fine.

    This guy really is a zero as a human being.
    He’s beyond reprehensible.
    A coward such as this has absolutely no business being in a position as Commander in Chief.
    His woman, in remaining at his side, is no better than him and by inference must agree with his actions and believe the same way.
    He will do, say, and be anything to hold on to power. Completely distasteful and disgusting.
    And all the other negative adjectives that will go to the right of the equal sign after the name.

    He’s lucky he was born a black person because no other color of a man would never get away with sort of thing in America.

    Speaking of Michelle Obama, she has declared that Obesity is the greatest threat to National Security…

  10. archer on September 13th, 2012 4:17 pm

    Well, I guess that’s one that proves the point.

    One wonders why they use terms like “national security.” They haven’t shown that they even know it’s meaning.

    And if she truly believed it the head of the Chicago teachers union would be imprisoned already.

    As my friend, Inigo Montoya once said to the Obamas about National Security:

    What remains befuddling, those in the most vulnerable, DISPOSABLE positions ( seem to be the most doggedly loyal? )

    YES.., we understand our former crooked Head of the GSA would be unabashedly pro-Dim. That was afterall HIM pictured w/ a magnum of Dom in the Vegas hot tub! But for guys/gals "hoping" their year-end bonus comes thru?

    Like what, be on your best behavior and they might get a "fact finding" junket invite? Puhleeeze. We'd all be better off if they simply remained true to their personal convictions. AND the damned RETIREES acting like one wrong ballot cast might spell the end of their ret. checks! C'mon guys….

    Yep, the appearance and actions / behavior of the CTU Pres. is the epitome of "HOG" !

    I was afraid I dripped some extra sarcasm on there, but it appears it missed, and hit my keyboard.

    My fave is "if you're E-2 or higher..?"

    ( Those poor guys can barely pay ATTENTION )

  18. jeffythequick on September 13th, 2012 8:36 pm

    He does care about the little people, that's why he only wanted one of the E-1's paychecks.

    I was going to put in there about their room and board being paid for, so they should contribute more, but that'd be over the top.

    "The troops are rooting out terrorists to eliminate them, not sell them Chevy Volts."

    Therein lies the problem: Barry and GM need those terrorists to buy those Chevy Volts Americans won't buy to get the production lines moving again and keeping those UAW wages and benefits flowing. After all, a portion of that does get back to Barry and the Dimocrats.

    "far right media outlets like MSNBC"

    Seriously? MSNBC is far right? Are you serious, Mr. pResident?

  23. jeffythequick on September 14th, 2012 1:47 am

    I ummm… errr… uhhh…

    How much did you send in, Mr. ChapBix?

    ahh… come on, you can do better than that! There are people starving, and you have a computer? You should let me spread the wealth around, to be fair. I will be your brother's keeper. Let's leave my brother out of this.

    How was I to know that the threat to these people was real? It wasn't at my intelligence briefing, and they should have all of these at my umm… errr… uhhh intelligence meetings uhhh that I ummm attend!

    That's an outright lie that my opponent is spreading about me! I AM THE pRESIDENT!

    Well the Volts do have a tendency to catch fire, possibly to even explode, so Obama Motors could always use that feature to market the Volt to the terrorists.

  27. Therese on September 14th, 2012 5:32 pm

    If our diplomats/soldiers have no more of a challenge than his campaign volunteers then why doesn't he send his two beautiful daughters overseas as soon as they turn 18! Of is he just all words. He certainly should have had a member of the military give the speech at the service today. But of course he's too narcistic to believe that any one could do it but himself. Too bad he needed an "instruction sheet" from Hilary to come up with the right words to say. Obviously they couldn't get the words on his telepprompter soon enough!

    We are concerned and unpleasant emotions, which we are afraid to admit to their close ones. But often, it can be anything inexplicable fear the gathering dusk, the fear of the dark corners or fear, covering the sound of the door opening.
