Obama Says He Didn’t Have Time To Be President —- He’s Been Campaigning And Stuff!!!

Barry clarified his open mic comments about having “more flexibility” to Russian president Dmitry Medvedev. 

From CNS News….

One viewer asked the president: “What did you mean when you said you will have more flexibility after the election when you thought you were off-mic with Dmitry Medvedev? Why is having more latitude after the elections significant?”

Obama said: “This was specifically about how we deal with Russia and nuclear arms. We’ve been able to negotiate a nuclear arms deal that reduced levels of nuclear arms both in Russia and in the United States and that’s something that was ratified on a bipartisan basis in the United States Senate.”

“The discussion there very much just had to do with the fact that it’s hard to negotiate additional treaties when I’m off campaigning and doing all kinds of stuff,” said Obama.

It was back in March when he told Medvedev he’d have more “flexibility”!

No wonder the administration was off guard at Benghazi!  They don’t have time to run this country, they’re campaigning! 

This jack wagon is saying he didn’t have time to discuss nuclear arms with Russia for over the last 6 months?

    LOL Well at least we get something from Obama it seems Mittens has spent more time running from reporters. Not even Fox News can get an interview from this guy! I guess he’s afraid the more he opens his mouth the less American people like/trust him?

    When asked what he do with FEMA (since he previously discussed it’s privatization) Mittens fled from reporters no less than 14 times. What a brave presidential candidate!

    Or a scum with no convictions? 😀 But in true Romney style he now seems to be for FEMA before he was against it?? I don’t know I can’t follow any of his positions they seem to change depending on the polls and the audience.

    Romney Style! http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6830834/mitt-romney-style-gangnam-style-parody

      Interesting phrase….
      “Or a scum with no convictions? ”

      Let’s examine a scum with no convictions

      http://cnsnews.com/blog/terence-p-jeffrey/what-did-obama-do-when-91112

      “President Barack Obama’s schedule for Sept. 11, 2012 — the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks — was designed to present a man with deep empathy for terror victims.

      At 8:46 a.m., in front of reporters, he and Michelle Obama observed a moment of silence outside the White House to mark the minute and hour when American Airlines Flight 11 flew into the World Trade Center.

      Then, in front of reporters, the Obamas moved to the Pentagon. They arrived before 9:37 a.m. so Obama could lay a wreath to mark the minute and hour when American Airlines Flight 77 flew into that building.

      On the way back to the White House, in front of reporters, they stopped at Arlington Cemetery to visit the graves of servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      At 2:15 p.m., in front of reporters, they departed for Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to visit wounded troops.

      At 3:40 p.m., Washington, D.C., time — or 9:40 p.m. Benghazi time — the Obamas, according to the White House schedule, were still at Walter Reed. At that moment, terrorists launched an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

      “The attack began at approximately 9:40 p.m. local time,” Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charlene Lamb said in written testimony presented to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “Diplomatic Security agents inside the compound heard loud voices outside the walls, followed by gunfire and an explosion. Dozens of attackers then launched a full-scale assault that was unprecedented in its size and intensity.”

      State Department officials in Washington learned of the attack almost instantly. “I could follow what was happening in almost real-time,” Lamb testified.

      The White House learned no later than 4:05 p.m. — or 25 minutes after the attack started. The State Department at that time sent the White House an email. The subject line: “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack.”

      The Obamas were scheduled to arrive back at the White House from Walter Reed at 4:50 p.m. Reporters could cover their arrival if they gathered at the North Doors of the Palm Room by 4:30 p.m.

      At 5:00 p.m. — an hour and 20 minutes after the attack started — Obama was scheduled to meet in the White House with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden.

      On Tuesday, I asked the Defense Department three questions: Did this scheduled meeting take place? Was Panetta aware then that the diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack? Did Obama use the meeting to discuss with Panetta what should be done to defend the U.S. personnel under attack?

      “Secretary Panetta met with President Obama, as the White House-provided scheduled indicates,” Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a Defense Department spokesman, responded.
      “However, neither the content nor the subject of discussions between the president and his advisors are appropriate for disclosure.”

      At 11:00 p.m. Benghazi time — as Obama, Panetta and Biden were beginning their White House meeting — U.S. agents abandoned the consulate in Benghazi and headed for a nearby “annex.” They took the body of State Department communications specialist Sean Smith with them, but left behind Ambassador Stevens, whose whereabouts was unknown.

      “The agents made a final search for the ambassador before leaving in an armored vehicle,” Lamb testified.

      The U.S. agents made it back to the annex about an hour after Obama, Panetta and Biden had started their meeting. “They took heavy fire as they pulled away from the main building and on the streets outside the compound,” Lamb testified. “Two tires were blown out, and the bullet-resistant glass shattered but remained intact. Upon arriving at the annex around midnight, they took up defensive positions, including on the roof. Shortly after their arrival, the annex itself began taking intermittent fire for a period of time.”

      At 6:07 p.m. Washington time — an hour and seven minutes after Obama, Panetta and Biden started their meeting — State sent another email to the White House. Its subject line: “Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.”

      Some time in the “early morning” of Sept. 12 Benghazi time, as the attack continued, security reinforcements arrived from Tripoli, about 400 miles by air from Benghazi. “Shortly after they arrived,” Lamb testified, “the annex started taking mortar fire, with as many as three direct hits on the compound.”

      “It was during this mortar attack that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed and a Diplomatic Security agent and an annex quick reaction security team member were critically wounded,” she testified. Woods and Doherty were former Navy Seals, veterans of the Iraq and Afghan wars, who were doing security work for the State Department.

      Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy conceded to the Oversight Committee that some “other government entity” has a 50-minute video of part of the Benghazi attack.

      Five days after the Benghazi attack, Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, described the attack as an unplanned reaction to an anti-Muslim video posted on YouTube. “It began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo, where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful video,” Rice told CBS News.

      On Sept. 25, Obama told the U.N. General Assembly, “There is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy.”

      On Oct. 18, Obama told Comedy Central, “If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.”

      On Friday, our president told KUSA TV in Denver that “the minute” he found out about the attack in Benghazi, he ordered subordinates to “make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to.”

    Bet Mitt hates this hurricane. Obama and Chris Christie get to the business of bipartisan cooperation helping people rebuild their lives while Romney struggles to maintain some assembly of relevance.

    Problem is every time he makes some cry for attention he sticks foot-in-mouth. Poor guy!

    Do you think after he loses Tuesday he’ll give up on this idea of the Presidency?

    • DirkH says:

      Obama’s situation room photo op was pretty impressive. Problem is every time he makes some cry for attention he sticks foot-in-mouth. Poor guy!

    • suyts says:

      Ph, I guess we’ll see which one weighs more in the public mind. As you point out, those were some great photo-ops for Obama with Christie. OTOH, Dirk is entirely correct, that was a disastrous photo of him in the situation room.

      • philjourdan says:

        Do you think after Tuesday when Obama goes down to defeat, the great alphabet soup will be back? Paydays for him will have ended (since the obama truthers will have no more work).

        • ThePhDScientist says:

          Hahaha but the paydays will continue for you won’t they big boy….? Always work for an obese blowhard – body double for Rush Limbaugh!!

        • philjourdan says:

          I see phd is confused again. He seems to forget that Rush is one of those evil 1%ers and he does not pay ANYONE. That would mean giving up some of his wealth.

          I also note that leopards do not change spots and he is back to his old racist homophobic pejorative self.

        • ThePhDScientist says:

          I would note that PhilJourdan is just as dumb and confused as the last month when I visited the climate cult!

        • philjourdan says:

          I note your incapacity to pen a coherent thought without resorting to childish ad hominems. Leopards do not change spots.

        • ThePhDScientist says:

          Big Boy I notice your tendency to site crap studies and propaganda as evidence is unchanged!

        • philjourdan says:

          Sorry, were you talking to me? it is hard since you do not appear to know how to reply to a comment.

          But your lies have no effect on me in any event. Since they are lies, why would anyone bother listening to a proven racist homophobic bigot?

  4. gator69 says:

    I wonder if Barry will ever find time for his nephew, in between golfing and campaigning?

    PhD cheerleader never has told me how his nephew is doing. Strange.

    Mitt’s dog is fine.

    • ThePhDScientist says:

      Oh which dog, the one Mitt thinks is appropriate to drive cross country while strapped to the roof rack?

      That’s the kind of judgement Mittens would bring to the White House…Fortunately the American people won’t let that happen!!

      On the brightside you’ll all have another 4 years of work continuing your conspiracy theories about Obama’s religion, citizenship, family, global warming, evolution etc…So much crazy talk to keep the crazies happy!

      😀

      • philjourdan says:

        The dog was healthy happy and alive when Mitt finished the trip. Which was more than we can say for Obama’s dog.

        p.s. For the ignorant posters here, wind in the face of a dog is not torture or mistreatment. They enjoy it and last I checked, breathing was not fatal.

        • ThePhDScientist says:

          Ummm no dogs do not enjoy riding strapped to the roof of car at 70 mph down the highway. PhilJourdan, you idiot, the dog enjoyed it so much that the little Mitten Boys saw the dogs vomit dripping down the back windshield of the car. Is that even legal to do now?

          Mitt is an idiot for doing that. It agains shows his poor judgement and lack of real world (non country club) experience. Perhaps this was his first road trip?

          It’s despicable and some fat blowhard defending him for it is just crazy!

        • philjourdan says:

          Actually, yes they do – according to the American Kennel club. And if you have never had an animal get car sick, you have never taken an animal for a ride in one. Your ignorance may be a fact, but that does not make your statements any closer to the truth.

          I guess Obama’s dog just don’t bark.

        • gator69 says:

          Self inflicted ignorance is the most common cause of intellectual death of the leftist brain.

          Mitt’s dog was not “strapped to the top of the car”, it was in an approved pet carrier that shielded the dog from wind and debris. Mitt’s dog did not get sick from the ride, as they had done this on several occasions without a hitch. Anne Romney said they fed fido some table scraps before the trip and the dog got the runs.

          Barry’s nephew needed $1000 for life saving surgery, and a conservative had to step up and save Barry’s nephew because Barry does not take care of his own family.

          Nephew dying, or sick dog? Just what will the sick mind of a PhD cheerleader choose?

        • ThePhDScientist says:

          My dog loved riding INSIDE the car. He never once got sick while riding INSIDE the car. Now had I strapped him to the roof he probably would have gotten sick. You see Phil they make these things called windows – dogs can get a little air in their face and the responsible owner can better control their dog and ensure its safety.

          But that’s just how normal responsible people act. Tell us how you weirdos do it?

        • philjourdan says:

          Your dog just got sick being around you is what you are saying. I don’t blame him.

          Did he taste good?

        All I had to do was give you enough rope. You are supporting a sub human who will not care for it’s own family. Mitt takes better care of his pets than Barry does his own nephew.

    “Romney Touts Support From CEOs on Jobs Council”

    “Mitt Romney’s White House bid comes down to business experience – i.e. he has it, the president doesn’t.

    To that end, the Romney campaign trotted out a roster of well-known business leaders Thursday who are backing the Republican presidential nominee. Supporters include Charles Schwab, Cisco Chief Executive John Chambers and Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot. The newest name on the list belongs to Intel CEO Paul Otellini, a member of President Barack Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.”

    • kim2ooo says:

      Mr Obama says
      A plant closes that Romney is somehow connected to: EVIL.

      Obama wastes billions of taxpayer dollars on “green energy” boondoggles and learns nothing from it: OH, WELL.

      As the great David Burge puts it: “Somehow I’m supposed to be more concerned with how Mitt Romney spends his money than how Barack Obama spends mine.”

    Hot off the presses – Biden ashamed of Obama!

    “There has never been a day in the last 4 years where I have been proud to be his vice president.”
