There’s a reason the White House initially insisted (for a pitifully long period of time) that the attack on the US consulate in Libya was a spontaneous uprising that wasn’t in any way a pre-meditated terrorism event. That reason is simple: If the White House admitted it was a planned terrorist attack, the president would have looked really bad for not canceling all this neat stuff:

New information reveals President Barack Obama conducted interviews with entertainment magazines and posed for a photo spread last Friday as American embassies burned and 21 countries erupted into anti-American protests.

Instead of spending precious time dealing with the developing crisis in the Mid East and with his foreign policy scheme in a total freefall, on Friday morning, September 14, Obama was giving an interview to the entertainment magazine People en Español and participating in a photo session with photographer Omar Cruz.

This interview was not on his public schedule and was hidden from the public.

Friday, September 14th was the same day that four flag-draped coffins of those killed at the U.S. Libyan embassy arrived at Andrews Air Force base.

The interview came to public attention when individuals who work for the magazine tweeted about their visit after the event was over.

Only in the last day or two has anybody connected to the White House begrudgingly admitted that yes, it was a terrorist attack. Gutsy call!

It’s now being reported that there was never an anti-American demonstration outside the US consulate, but that the whole thing was a planned terrorist attack.

And Hillary’s “the concerned Libyans on scene carried Ambassador Stevens from the consulate to the hospital” line from the other day? Yeah, that’s not sounding entirely accurate.

Maybe we should excuse the administration. After all, in spite of the photo shoots and entertainment magazine interviews, they were obviously hard at work designing a new flag poster to sell to their cult followers:

That reminded more than a few of something else.

    Looking at Zero`s new flag design, now I see what he did with those "amber-stained shorts" !

    "This interview was not on his public schedule and was hidden from the public."

    "White House..? These optics S&CK..!" ( MM )

    It's clear now, just as many football teams will stick to "Their first 20 [pre-selected] plays", Obama had no intentions of straying from The Strategy. They've already seen [actual] spotaneous events like the Gulf Oil Spill take them "completely off task".

    While initially embracing that one particular NLAGCGTW and chewing Bobby Jindahl out in the process, it ultimately panned out to be a net negative for them. You could say it's where they began losing the center. In DROVES.

    Control of The pResidency is all that matters. We have the LSM DEEP in our hip pocket and they'll spin it how we TELL them to spin it! Let 'em burn. We got distracted by these, petty events in the past. There's no villain like Exxon we can blame and score points with.

    There's no way to hang this on Romney, Bush, etc. Ergo, it doesn't exist! Stick to The Plan! These Security Briefings just slow me down?

  4. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 12:38 pm

    Good analysis ! I saw on Drudge that Obama , under pressure, has had to give up his I-Pad for live security briefings !

    Doesn't he have a high level meeting with Netanyahu a pirate today?

  6. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 12:49 pm

    Arrrrrrr, that was yesterday, Matey !

  7. Marshall_Will on September 20th, 2012 1:01 pm

    Boo-hoo.

    The only thing we as Conservatives can do, based on the behaviors we've seen exhibited, extrapolate going forward and then share as if we were already in retrospect.

    Doug's made masterful use of this as has MM. And Dim's keep making it easier! As parents, how 'brilliant' do we have to be to know when your kids mention, Skateboard+plywood+Youtube video, it will end with medical bills?

    From their response, clearly Bammie & Co. did not calculate ME unrest into their possible scenarios. Right before turning in I saw a BHO spot focusing on "He took ON China and kept jobs here, in the U.S". Yeah, that means so much to some guy who's Unemployment ran out and STILL hasn't found one of those Saved or Created 'jobs'.

    "He took ON China ……"

    Oh yeah, he took them ON alright …. as CREDITORS !

    "……and kept jobs here, ….."

    Union boss`s jobs ? Solar power Cos CEOs ? Not many others !

  10. Marshall_Will on September 20th, 2012 1:34 pm

    Yea-UH! Even the use of the simple word, 'kept', one of the most basic concepts in English or any language gets abused on several levels.

    We should add that to the Passive/Aggressive Abuse Watch List. Right along w/ 'still'. Are you STILL working there? Are you STILL married to 'her'!?

    Unless the Left is applying it with the sureness of the Atomic Chart, we can safely assume it's semantics.

  11. Obama bin Biden on September 20th, 2012 1:35 pm

    And yet he's still adored by at least 49% of the country.

    Liberalism is a DANGEROUS Mental Disorder!

  12. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 1:39 pm

    "…, we can 'safely' assume it`s semantics."

    And risk little by calling it Total BS !

  13. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 1:43 pm

    Oooo, now THAT`S just eery !

    At MM`s someone pointed out that the 5 stripes look to have been made by bloody fingers. To have THAT AND the Zero logo gives the impression of "endorsement" if not actual "complicity" by the O`Stration !

    CHILLING !

  14. The Zoo Keeper on September 20th, 2012 1:45 pm

    "O'stration", nice!

  15. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 1:51 pm

    49% ? I have to question that now. Look at the desperation of the left – O`Stration and the media and the lefty bloggers, et al; the country is very dissatisfied with Zero. EVERYBODY sees what a lousy pres. he`s been. Only the most ardent dem is actually supporting him and will vote for him; truth be told, they are only supporting the D label, not Obama !

  16. jeffythequick on September 20th, 2012 1:58 pm

    If I were Jim Messina (well, if I were him, I'd probably want plastic surgery), but I'd be scared with 49% approval rating, given that the polls skew 13% Democrat.

    Let's see, I ask 100 people who they like, and the breakdown is like this:
    46% Democrat
    33% Republican
    21% Independent

    and all he gets is 49%?

    These numbers are made up, but the point stands. The polls are skewed.

  17. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 2:07 pm

    I like it; used a couple yrs now, long enough to have forgotten whether I coined it or I heard it and adopted it. Works for O (oh) and Zero.

  18. Marshall_Will on September 20th, 2012 2:11 pm

    truth be told, they are only supporting the D label, not Obama !

    You got that right. More specifically, the type of D-voter that cheered the 'victory' for the Chicago Teachers Union. Many only viewed him as a 'softie' or true believer, paving the way for SOLID and permanent PEU gains!

    Now he's letting our embassies BURN and… ( what's a Caliphate? ) They're beginning to see his foreign policy 'adventures' have every bit as big a price tag as Evil Bush's did. Not they care about Achmed the goatherder any more than they did under Boosh. Simply every $ adjudicated toward the DoD or Foreign Aid is a $ not avail. for the local slush fund…

  19. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 2:13 pm

    I thought I read last week that some poll was skewed by "16%" dems and the difference was only O up by 3%, within the margin of error. Rush made the point, "They skew it by 16 and can only get him up by 3 ?"

    We know that no Rs will vote for O, fewer Ds will this go`round and IMO, any Is who are undecided are really just Ds who are ashamed to admit it ! Only a moron or a cave dweller hasn`t seen the differences by now !

  20. Marshall_Will on September 20th, 2012 2:30 pm

    any Is who are undecided are really just Ds who are ashamed to admit it !

    What any 'Independent' has left to remain undecided about we'll never know! Yesterday Green eyed Lady at MM's posted a HillBuzz link that broke down the polling bias.

    In essence HB showed that while 16% greater of I's trend Romney.., "Well there's no assurance they'll show UP that day so…" ( but then fail to make similar adjustments for O'Draqma! )

    The real problem for Dims is that, no matter how pollsters break this down, percentages don't aggregate. This is just one of those abberations where 'sampling' is inadequate. The first question asked of any likely Dim is: WILL you be/bother voting this fall!?

  21. Marshall_Will on September 20th, 2012 2:46 pm

    Not the first time these @-holes have hijacked the flag.

    He's just so desp. to "keep things fresh". Letterman quipped, "I'm not naked" and pRez say; "Well good, let's keep it that way?"

    I thought He was our First Ghey pResident! Which should be an insult to actual gheys. For the most part if you look at His campaign thus far you'd think the last 4 years didn't happen?

    I even saw one ad spot back in Feb. that billed Him as "Candidate Obama".

  22. jeffythequick on September 20th, 2012 2:55 pm

    Is that radio guy taking my show prep again?

    Actually, I verify what he says against my engineering mind* (I've been analyzing all the engineer jokes, and I think I can give the root cause as to why they're funny…) and he's pretty much spot on.

    *Arguing with an engineer is like mud wrestling with pigs. Sooner or later you'll find that they both enjoy the specified activity.

  23. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 7:00 pm

    Yeah, I hear numerous dims and a few Indies saying they may not vote; can`t see enough difference between the two – WHAT ?

    "Draqma" ? Is that from "Enemy Mine" ?

  24. SignPainterGuy on September 20th, 2012 8:49 pm

    "Candidate Obama"; it seems all he`s at all good at, besides lying straight-faced, and people are often known by there friends by what they`re good at !
