It's a Day to Be All for One and One for All Thing

Dear America,

Sharp contrast in motion:

FIRST, read THIS, from Peter Ferrara @ Forbes.

Then know this:  HE watched the attack in Benghazi, and the very next day he flew to Vegas for a fundraiser.  Appropriate?  Good Call?  huh, allow me to think about that for all of two seconds.

But cue an epic storm, "Sandy" -- he's all of a sudden remembered he needs be the leader.  The President goes back to Washington.

Oh hindsight is 20/20 isn't it, Mr. President?

If only.

If only you had stayed in Washington circa September 12th, 13th, 14th -- at least over a few days, just long enough to get plenty of photo-ops sitting in the Oval Office and showing the world you were on it.  If only you had given it more thought to the advantages of staying, instead of squeezing in a few senseless appearances in the middle of unmitigated "acts of terrorism."  If only, right?

Clearly, looking back at moving FORWARD, the question of 'should I stay or should I go now', was not even considered; you went -- and by all appearances, with no regrets.

Clearly, looking back at moving FORWARD, posing the question of 'who denied requests of more security and why' seems irrelevant, if not totally absurd, to even ask.  It was, and still is, beneath you to answer to such preposterous revelations of any breach of duty whether aimed at you, or anyone within your administration, right?

Who gave the order to 'stand down' right smack in the middle of it?  Not Panetta.  Not Petraeus.

Fast forward to after the fact --  after making an impromptu general statement in the Rose Garden, and after weeks of blaming a video (and about that...talk aboutsomething 'sketchy'...)   -- when we arrive at reality bearing down on a defensive president saying "the suggestion that anyone in my team...anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own, governor, is offensive.   That's not what we do.  That's not what I do as president, that's not what I do as Commander-in-Chief."   @Second Debate.

So ironic.    The title, by definition, is to lead the military! through the storm, through the battle, in peacetime and war.  When a moment to stand as the Commander-in-Chief  is before him,  and demanding his attention to order a MILITARY RESPONSE of a terrorist attack [correction, the "act of terror" running in live feed right before his eyes]   he chooses to retreat and then LIE his way out of it.

And Sandy -- now that's a thing calling for his undivided attention.  Matter of fact, he needs to stop campaigning 'full-stop' (that's nav-speak, Mr. President... oh, of course you know...being it's an everyday term used on the bridge of the place where planes land...).   The situation room is calling; he needs to go back to Washington to tell us something we already know:  just stay home, listen to the Emergency Preparedness projections of this storm and prepare; don't do anything foolish. 

Not that a storm can lean right or left -- it actually goes in circles...and how funny is that, but how quickly we digress. It does beg another question:  Which will turn out greater than the other -- the Big Benghazi Lie or the anticipated epic storm bearing down upon our East Coast as we speak?   

It doesn't matter though, does it?  In this moment, we share in the immediate concern for 50 million Americans sitting in harm's way.  So in that spirit, we will keep things rather tame here in Gland.  It's just not a good day to play politics, now is it, Mr. President?  And surely, it would be offensive for anyone to think otherwise.   All politics aside, it's just a good day to be all for one and one for all, for that's what we do.

and all we can do now is pray, and pray hard. 

Make it a Good Day, G


  1. Dateline Oct 29: at the height of the question of who relayed the President's (your) decision (had someone else decided you could override it) not to save your Ambassadore, and as the largest hurricane ever bore towards highly populated & industrial NJ, NY coasts, Oct 28 you/AF1 fly to FL to campaign. Oops AM Oct 29 public learns you once again shirked sworn duty to smooze $$$, you are told Sandy speeding up may close Andrews and you can't sneak back to your duty station, so Bill stands in, as You once again abuse AF1by excess personal political use to get to DC to pretend being presidential, not puppet.

  2. I love visitors! Good scoop and a compliment is my kind of day....and hope you all come back real soon.
