Video: Obama to Red Cross Just Weeks After Benghazi – “We Leave Nobody Behind”

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.

Unlike the America he described at the Red Cross, Obama abandoned our fellow citizens at the US consulate. And he’s been lying about it ever since.

He then closes with another zinger: “Whenever an American is in need, we’re providing the help that is necessary.”

Not hardly, Mr. President.
