Convention of Statesmen


Sideshow, Mr. President?

Yesterday, Barack Obama begged the American people to stop listening to Congress and those of us who have been calling for the investigation in events leading up to, the attack on, the murders of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya on 11 September 2013, and the subsequent cover up. Obama stated there was nothing wrong and that Republicans were simply politicizing the whole situation, calling it a sideshow. Let me make myself perfectly clear, Barack Obama, Leon Panetta, and Hillary Clinton:

YOU and HILLARY CLINTON chose to cut security at Consulates and Embassies around the world, despite repeated requests for more Security.

YOU and HILLARY CLINTON chose to house the U.S. Ambassador and his staff in sub-standard facilities that did not meet the necessary security levels.

YOU allowed the U.S. Ambassador, Chris Stevens, to be kidnapped, brutally tortured and murdered.

YOU allowed the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi to go on for eight hours.

YOU issued the "Stand Down" order three times.

YOU consigned 30+ Americans to certain death when you cut off all paths of rescue.

DESPITE YOU, Tyrone Woods and two other C.I.A. agents disobeyed orders and went to the Consulate and recovered Captain Sean Smith's (AF) body and rescued 30+ remaining Consulate staff.

BECAUSE OF YOU, they took fire the entire time, to and back from the Consulate, as they raced toward the C.I.A. Annex.

DESPITE YOU, Glen Doherty left Signella Air Force Base in Italy as soon as the multiple calls for help went out, and arrived before midnight, Benghazi time.

DESPITE YOU, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty went back to find the U.S. Ambassador.

DESPITE YOU, they recovered the brutalized, battered, and bloody body of Ambassador Chris Stevens.

DESPITE YOU, they raced back to the C.I.A. Annex, again taking heavy fire, with the body of the Ambassador.

DESPITE YOU, Doherty and Woods raced to the roof of the Annex and began firing back at those lobbing unrelenting mortar rounds at the Annex.

DESPITE YOUR INEXPLICABLE COWARDICE, Doherty and Woods gave their last full measure of devotion to their country.

DESPITE YOUR INEXPLICABLE COWARDICE, the Embassy's First Response Team finally arrived.

DESPITE YOUR INEXPLICABLE COWARDICE, two of them climbed to the roof of the Annex and carried the bodies of American heroes Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty back down and took their bodies with them when they left Libya.

YOU chose not to respond to the attack on Benghazi and the brutal murders of four Americans. 

YOU chose to fly off to Las Vegas to party with your good buddies, Jay Z and Beyonce'.

YOU chose to call the Libyan President a liar when he clearly stated the attack on Benghazi was a terrorist attack. YOU chose to blame the attack on a hapless movie director and his silly little video that had only 8 hits until YOU brought it up.

YOU and HILLARY CLINTON chose to lie to the loved ones of the four Americans as their flag draped coffins stood nearby.

YOU chose to have the Talking Points edited 12 to 14 times until the points were nothing but a pack of lies, and all threats to your presidency were removed.

YOU chose to lie to the American people.

HILLARY CLINTON chose to lie to the American people.

LEON PANETTA chose to lie to the American people.

YOU set U.N. Ambassador Suzanne Rice up, and ordered her to take those Talking Point lies and to repeat them to the American press on five different shows the following Sunday morning.

YOU then began one of the biggest Cover Ups of U.S. History, for nothing in our past comes to the magnitude of what occurred since you became president.

Since 11 September 2012, YOU have misled the American people consistently so that you would not lose the election.

YOU didn't want to take the chance you might lose. YOU chose, since that time, to simply threaten, bribe and extort all the witnesses to keep them quiet.

YOU continue to exercise a complete and overall abuse of power, and it rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors.

The only politics I see here, Mr. President, are your cancerous own.

Most U.S. Presidencies have at least one big scandal, but not Barack Obama's. Oh no, he has four colossal scandals, each of which rise to the levels of high crimes and misdemeanors.
  • Fast & Furious governmental gunrunning into Mexico
  • Attack on Benghazi, Libya
  • IRS maliciously targeting Conservatives of all stripes
  • Violating the 1st Amendment rights of the Associated Press
What next, Mr. President? What next Speaker John Boehner? What next Senator Mitch McConnell? What next America? How much more before you shake off your willful ignorance and begin to fight back? And to every single American: Can you hear me now?
