Even though he claimed not to be campaigning today, Obama spoke to the press at the Red Cross from behind a presidential podium with a White House seal. He was there to sympathize, because “this is a tough time for a lot of people, millions of folk all across the eastern seaboard.”
Then he slipped into the same disingenuous claptrap that has marked most of his presidency and campaign: “But America’s tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind.”
We cannot conceive of how he could make such a statement in good faith, given how intense the current conservative media coverage has been of how he did exactly the opposite in Benghazi.
He then closes with another zinger: “Whenever an American is in need, we’re providing the help that is necessary.”
Not hardly, Mr. President.
