It is not just Obama. I had the feeling that Bush 43 was also disengaged from the responsibilities of the presidential office. For all of the many criticisms that can be made of them, other presidents of mediocre mind -- FDR, Truman, Carter and Reagan, for example -- were fully engaged in their duties (well, by the early '40s, perhaps not FDR). Bush 43 and Obama have liked the perks of office, the shambolism of the presidency, but they haven't seemed comfortable doing the sort of work that they should do to earn their keep.

I am sick and tired of leftists like you claiming President Reagan was of "mediocre mind" or other disparaging remarks. He was far and away superior to ANY president since Lincoln. Got it? Now go down and clean up your bedroom in the basement before your Mom starts yelling at you.

Hey, absinthe,
Is the old "Two-Wrongs-Make-A-Right" defense all you've got? Yeah, I thought so.

A lame and pathetic attempt at moral equivalency and a post chock full of blatant liberal propaganda. The subject is Obama and his apathy, indifference, and incompetence.

 

President Barack Obama was nowhere to be found the long and fatal night of September 11, 2012 when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were assassinated in an attack on the U.S. Mission Outpost in Benghazi, Libya. 

Finally, five months after the terrorist assault, the American people and the families of those brave slain Americans find out that even though live video was being streamed back to Washington, even though requests for backup had been sent, the President left it to others...
