Obama the Feckless Redux

by Jeff Swanson

Not so long ago, I wrote about Obama’s fecklessness. In this, I largely detailed some historical information about how unpopular and poorly received he was as a college lecturer, his failure in Benghazi and his poor debate performance.

This is not headline maker stuff but worth discussing.

Argo is a stellar movie. It is also very relevant for the obvious reason of what occurred in Benghazi. Continue reading

Who’s ‘Politicizing’ Benghazi? – Mark Steyn – National Review Online.
by Mark Steyn

‘The entire reason that this has become the political topic it is is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.”

Thus, Stephanie Cutter, President Obama’s deputy campaign manager, speaking on CNN about an armed attack on the 9/11 anniversary that left a U.S. consulate a smoking ruin and killed four diplomatic staff, including the first American ambassador to be murdered in a third of a century.
