As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama: American Deaths in Libya “Not Optimal”

President Obama today went into human robot mode and ran straight into a major gaffe during his get-out-the-vote event appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, saying the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was “not optimal.”

Well, that’s certainly “affirmative.”

After the show, Obama campaign aides immediately escorted the president back to the laboratory where they gave him new batteries and a complete tune up.

Here’s the exchange:

Jon Stewart: “Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions? Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within. Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page.”

POTUS: “Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it. And what happens, during the course of a presidency, is that the government is a big operation and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it. Whatever else I have done throughout the course of my presidency the one thing that I’ve been absolutely clear about is that America’s security comes, and the American people need to know exactly how I make decisions when it comes to war, peace, security, and protecting Americans. And they will continue to get that over the next four years of my presidency.”

Yes, hopefully he can optimize things a little better.

So much for Obama’s compassion advantage over Romney.

  1. I heard that OFA in Chicago put out a Missing Teleprompter notice this morning. I hope the FBI, CIA and Seal Team Six can get on this right away.

  2. Hold cold, heartless, and detached he sounds…

    “If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.” Bet that really provides comfort and solace to the families of these four men. Doubt he even remembers the names of the “bumps in the road”. Try to remember they have names you worthless excuse for a commander in chief… Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods.

  3. ” … and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it.”

    Kinda hard to “fix” dead people.

  4. A.a.a.a. “And they will continue to get that over the next four years of my presidency.” Does this mean he has now declared himself America’s legal dictator? I thought we were having an election November 6th to decide that. Arrogant SOB isn’t he?

  5. He’s made it very clear how he makes his decisions on “war, peace, security, and protecting Americans.” He consults musicians, actors, comedians, talk-show hosts, and other members of the entertainment industry. His security agencies? Why consult them? He reads their memos.

    Minor quibble: aren’t “security” and “protecting Americans” the same thing?

  6. Wouldn’t it be nice if Romney could somehow work this little ‘do-over’ into the debate on Monday night? Americans need to know just how cold and callous this psychopath is in real life. He is a sociopath – devoid of conscience and emotion. Scarier than hell!

  7. See? see? how fooled we are? He didn’t answer the question, but gave a meanandering answer that promotes himself.

    The question; “….the optimal RESPONSE….” was not answered. MrStewart was referring to what was told to Americans about the Bengazi attacks and how the different agencies responded to it.
    He didn’t ask what the POTUS was going to do in the future, or whether our security was at risk.

  8. “Whatever else I have done throughout the course of my presidency the one thing that I’ve been absolutely clear about is that America’s security comes, and the American people need to know exactly how I make decisions when it comes to war, peace, security, and protecting Americans. And they will continue to get that over the next four years of my presidency.

    Here’s what the American people know: Obama is a pathological liar, a coward, and a morally bankrupt megaolomaniac who has always put hinself before the country. And, no, we do not want another four years of your Presidency, jerk!

  9. I don’t need Obama to tell me how he makes his decisions. We already know, and his decisions aren’t based on anything reasonable or logical. It’s all about the O. He does not care about anyone else.

  10. I hope he keeps saying things like this. Every time he does, he shows he is further and further out of touch with pretty much everything. Get rid of him on the 6th, and between now and then, lets get people fired up about the Senate races too. Besides The White House, we need to get the Senate back from Grandpa Reid as well!.

  11. How many concrete examples do we need before we can reliably describe his character? When 30 Americans, including 22 members of Seal Team Six were lost:

    this was the response;
    “Their deaths,” the president said, “are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military…”

    A reminder. A REMINDER.

    Are you getting angry yet?

  12. “Whatever else I have done throughout the course of my presidency the one thing that I’ve been absolutely clear about is that America’s security comes, and the American people need to know exactly how I make decisions when it comes to war, peace, security, and protecting Americans.”

    This sentence makes no sense-America’s security comes? I didnt hear a first in there

  13. If four American deaths is not optimal, what, pray-tell, would be? I’m having trouble wrapping my feeble brain around this. That Obama doesn’t care about anyone other than himself is apparent, but this comment seems to go beyond the pale.

  14. Oh Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! I thought he was an intelligent,educated man! Does he know what optimal means? Idiot!!!

    On the other hand, I love Keith’s commentary on this!

  15. So is the delusional psychotic narcissistic muslim commie now able to raise the dead? Because that’s the only damn way to “fix this.” I hate him with a purple passion, the same color of his freakazoid lips.

  16. Maybe someone should the president the difference between getting killed and murdered. When someone dies in an car crash, they are killed. When some dies in a premeditated terrorist attack, its murder! Geez I thought this guy was a lawyer who loved to split hairs over meaning of words.

    And the fact that Stewart just sits there and nods like a chimp is even worse. And the guy wonders why his audience hasn’t grown in ten years even though the douches in Hollywood drool him every chance they get and nowbgets gisbass handed to him in the ratings by Tosh even though Tosh.0 production costs are nothing compared to Stewart since he has like 40 writers for him.

    I try to be even handed and see both sides in stuff but this sent me over the edge. I’m really pissed off at Obama

      • But didn’t you see AP’s headline this afternoon??

        “A night of humor – after day of campaign criticism”

        My question is…what the hell is so funny about anything right now – especially this Libya mess!

        I’m very pissed, too, and am really looking forward to November 6th.

        • Well the AP is in the bag for Obama like 85% of the press is. That is why I am extremely careful on who and what I read which doesn’t mean I just watch Fox news is all day since I understand they have an agenda too (Personally, I watch only a couple Cable News shows for anchors I respect and even then I just skimped through when they have a guest I like on).

          I agree though that none of this is funny even though Obama is finding plenty of time to go on venues like Stewart to yulk it up. I been saying for years on how annoyed I am that politicans go on these stupid ass shows. I applaud Romney for not going on any of these lately and instead send his wife which is the way it should be (send the spouse or surrogant on). He sounded absolutely stupid on “Kelly & Michael” talking about Snooki, Honey Boo Boo and his favorite stuff. If I were a politican, I never EVER go on these shows especially when the world is burning down which is right now. If I were a poltiican and someone asked me a question about pop culture, I go: “I honestly do not have a clue on who you are talking about. I am too busy trying to save the world”. :)

          Sorry about the rant but it really honks me off when stuff like this happens LOL!

  17. Each time I see or read one of these pronouncements, I think that Rod Serling and Gene Roddenberry combined their sci fi/horror skills to create this……creature?

  18. I think Obama believes, “We the People” are just gnats in his buttermilk!
    I say, and have been saying: IMPEACH OBAMA!!
    Lies Lies and more Lies!
    My vote is for Romney/Ryan!
