Who Had Worst Week in Washington, DC? WaPo Claims It Was Romney
By Dan Collins
To start things off right, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was found to have violated the Hatch Act, but the Obama administration signalled that it wasn’t going to do anything about it.
Then, an Ambassador and three other personnel were murdered when the Benghazi embassy was overrun. Obama went to sleep without knowing the fate of Chris Stevens. The Cairo embassy, where the flag of al Qaeda was hoisted and the US one burned, sent out a series of tweets apologizing, for a movie, which was then countermanded by Hillary Clinton—whose husband, operating as a proxy for Obama, had violated the administration’s mutual no-campaigning pact with Romney. The President went ahead with a Vegas fundraiser, mentioning his tough day.
The administration put it out that the violent demonstrations now spreading across the Muslim world were all about the obscure movie. Liberal idiot supporters went on TV and op-ed columns to call for the jailing of the man responsible for the movie, and media outlets helpfully spread the false information that he was an Israeli Jew. Earlier in the week, the administration had denied that Benjamin Netanyahu had asked Obama for a meeting, but then claimed that Obama simply couldn’t work it into his schedule, in which he similarly was found not to have had time for intelligence briefings. The administration claimed that the Ambassador’s corpse was helpfully retrieved and taken to the hospital by the Libyan people, only to have photos of the corpse being lugged about and posed in the streets on Libyan websites.
Mrs. Clinton, whose husband had decided not to strike against Osama bin Laden on several occasions, and who bombed a pharmaceutical factory outside of Khartoum in response to much more disastrous embassy bombings on his watch, turns out to have been responsible for the lax security at the installations in Benghazi and Cairo. In the former, security was doled out to a Libyan firm, who were not permitted to carry live ammo, and in the latter to Marines who were similarly hamstrung. Despite the White House’s continuing claim that any violence was the result, not of US policy, but of rage against this absurd movie, and that there was no organized plot to kill the dead Ambassador, al Qaeda stated the obvious in announcing its successful exaction of revenge for the drone killing of operative al-Libi in June. Subsequently, it emerged that both the dead Ambassador and the Cairo embassy had been warned of impending attacks, by Egyptian security and other officials.
Mrs. Clinton had pushed back vigorously some months ago over concerns regarding her personal assistant Huma Abedin’s family ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and its proxies.
Obama told Telemundo that Egypt was neither an ally nor an enemy, but just some guy in the neighborhood, to whom we send billions. Iran admitted it had Quds forces in Syria and Lebanon.
While the President and his Secretary of State solemnly welcomed the coffins of the dead home one of the President’s Twitter idiots helpfully linked to fall sweater styles, while jovially intoning “winter is coming.” The President’s Twitter account has now touted his fundraiser with Beyonce and Jay-Z 47 times, while deploring the murder of the personnel in Benghazi once.
The State Department and White House then falsely claimed that they couldn’t cough up any other information regarding the assaults because of an ongoing investigation. Instead, the administration did exactly what the Islamist radicals hoped they would and detained the maker of the film for questioning. They asked Sudan and Yemen for permission to arm Marines at their installations in those countries, and were denied.
The White House then actually came out with the “no actionable intelligence” card.
The US credit rating was downgraded again, as a result of QE3 [Thanks to @southsalem for reminding me that should be here].
The Washington Post is now reduced to claiming that the violence was “kicked off” by rage over a year-old movie, a weasel-worded way of sticking to the administration’s discredited narrative.
And somehow Chris Cilizza wants us to believe that it was Romney who had a very bad week.
