Debate Surprise

The below-included passage is an observation that co-incided with El Gringo Viejo's impression at the very second that Obamaham the Mighty began his disjointed response to one of the questioners at last night's debate. 
     This is from Jennifer Rubin's "Right Turn" editorial comment in the Washington Post, this date.   She draws the following from American Crossroads analysis of Obama's problem with being a chronic, pathological liar:

There is another problem with Obama’s response. Recall this part of his answer: “So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi Consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team, and I gave them three instructions. Number one, beef up our security and — and — and procedures not just in Libya but every embassy and consulate in the region. Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure that folks are held accountable and it doesn’t happen again. And number three, we are going to find out who did this, and we are going to hunt them down, because one of the things that I’ve said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them”

     To begin, Obama and all the King's men flooded the airways during the days following the attack on the Counsel in Benghazi to make certain that the affable hoit poloi did not connect the dots that 11 September....crescent moon with Venus nearby....multiple uprisings throughout Muslim Arabia...and all nature of other nefarious manifestation...meant that perhaps Al Qaeda is not quite as much "on its heels" and the Naked Emperor wants us to think.   His secretary of state, his ambassadette to the "United Nations", his chief press spokesman. his chief of staff of the campaign (odd), and a score or so more of mendacious lurkers certainly flooded every venue to pull wool, blow smoke, and put wings on the pigs.
     An attachment to this is Obama's effort to confuse the issue by reminding people that Romney had spoken without permission without knowing all the facts.   Romney shot from the hip, so to speak.   The problem with that admonishment is that Romney's first, and correct, shot across the bow was to condemn the knee-jerk blame-America-first statement from the Embassy at Cairo, Egypt wherein they apologised for the "anti-Mohammad" video.
      That, by itself, should have resulted in the immediate dismissal of whichever employee made such asinine statement.   But, not only was it made the first time, but again during the full scale mob vandalism of our Embassy.   Romney was right, even during or especially during the middle of a presidential campaign.   Grovelling before deranged religious maniacs who are being led by agents of Lucifer does not gain respect.    It gains nothing.   It loses everything.
     Romney actually said little about the actual murderous assault of the American facility in Benghazi.  But, Obama, last night, transferred the one condemnation and "inappropriate over-reaction" about Cairo over to the situation in Benghazi, and thereby implied that Romney had made things worse by his meddling.
     But, leaving that behind, we are told by Obama that as soon as he found out that the facility in Benghazi was being overrun, he immediately communicated with his national security team.   That is a lie.   Had he done so, he would have known that some frumpy lady at State was following the issue in real time, in video and audio.   He did not fish with much bait to try to assemble the best people, closest to the scene.   It was several days later when the Ambassador of the United States of America to the Youknighted Nayshuns went out to assure the Crackers and religious nuts and gun nuts that all this row was caused by one of them.   It was all due to an offensive video about the Prophet Mohammed, done by a Christian extremist.   She went to five different morning shows on Sunday to say the same thing, with the same words, to leave the same erroneous impression.
     As word further leaked out from here and there....(please scroll down to previous post concerning the value of the President of Libya's word as opposed to the value of the word of the President of the United States...19 September 2012....TRADE PRESIDENTS, ANYONE?) became more and more obvious that Obama is a liar, and that Al Qaeda had destroyed a significant American facility and murdered four Americans, one a full ambassador, in the process.
    With that said, the rest of Obama's answer to the questioner was totally Styrofoam peanuts and horse feathers.   There were five other massively egregious acts of aggravated mendaciousness that, thankfully, were relatively easily detected by large numbers of the audience last night.   Hence, the pundits said..."Wow! Obama really showed everybody!" while the polling and general reaction of the Nobodies was "Why does that guy who plays the part of President lie and avoid direct answers to all questions?"

Thanks for your time and attention.   Remember, we won this one. too.  And, after Romney makes it to the White House, we shall have to fight him and his "reasonability" in order to keep the ship of state steering more centre-right than centre.  It will be easier to argue with him than with Obama, because Mitt has a soul and has always been proud of his Country.
