During President Barack Obama's whirlwind visit to New York City delivered a speech to the United Nations.

In that speech Obama said,

"The attacks on our civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America."

To keep close tabs on our response to those "attacks on America" Obama played footsie with the gals on The View. And attended a reception. And Tweeted about the nature of the global issue of replacement refs in the NFL. And, for all I know, took a turn as the Naked Cowboy in Times Square.

This is from that well-known right-wing mouthpiece, Time Magazine:

He arrived in Manhattan on a glorious autumn afternoon and rushed to his first - and only - public event of the day: a taping of ABC's The View with his wife, Michelle.

Obama did find time to slip in his U.N. speech during which he also said:

"We were inspired by the Tunisian protests that toppled a dictator …"

"We insisted on change in Egypt …"

"We supported a transition of leadership in Yemen …"

"We intervened in Libya alongside a broad coalition …"

"We, again, declare that the regime of Bashar al-Assad must come to an end …"

Is it just me, or did Barack Obama sound like he was channeling George W. Bush?

Obama wagged his finger in the face of the Iranian delegation and warned them about their program to build nuclear weapons saying,

"There is still time and space to [resolve this]. But that time is not unlimited."

He said the U.S. "will do what we must" to prevent Iran from getting a nuke, but late reporting gave no guidance on what that might involve.

Dear Mr. Mullings:

Stop it.

Stop what.

Stop pretending you're outraged at Obama's United Nations speech.

I, er, am …

Ok. I had no more emotional reaction to watching Obama's speech than Obama had giving that speech.

We were both phoning it in.

First of all, just having a pretend election does not a democracy make

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt didn't just send NGOs helping to establish democratic institutions out of the country; it raided their offices, stole their money, and have sicced Interpol on some of the Americans who left the country effectively making them the equivalent of international arms dealers.

Yeah, Barack. That's working.

After the attack on the Consulate in Benghazi, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli did nothing to keep potentially sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.
