Between Two Americas

 

 

 


” Thanks to the miracles of modern technology, Dinesh D’Souza got to ask Obama a few questions this week a la Zach Galifianakis. Much like Zach’s interview with the President, things got heated when D’Souza pressed Obama on his failed healthcare system, his criticisms of D’Souza’s 2016 film, and other hot button issues.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kirstin Powers: “60 Minutes” Obama Interview Was Something You’d Expect From State-Run Media

New Tape Proves Obama Refused to Describe Benghazi Attack as Terrorism on 9-12

  “On Sunday, two days before the presidential election, CBS News released a video clip that proves two things. The clip is from President Barack Obama’s Sept. 12 interview with Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes. The newly release clip includes this exchange between the reporter and the president.

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

KROFT: It’s been described as a mob action, but there are reports that they were very heavily armed with grenades, that doesn’t sound like your normal demonstration.

OBAMA: As I said, we’re still investigating exactly what happened, I don’t want to jump the gun on this. But your right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is there are folks involved in this. Who were looking to target Americans from the start. So we’re gonna make sure that our first priority is to get our folks out safe, make sure our embassies are secured around the world and then we are going to go after those folks who carried this out. “

At Least One Reporter Has Some B***s

  ” When you spend all your media time being interviewed by Jon Stewart, MTV, and the ladies of The View, I guess you get used to never being asked the tough questions. President Obama, doing a satellite interview tour of battleground states was thoroughly, but politely, undressed by KUSA anchor Kyle Clark on Friday. He asked a series of direct and pointed questions that other members of the media aren’t asking. What he got from the President was campaign-speak and evasion.

Here are some of the juicy excepts of the exchange (via KUSA)

    KYLE CLARK: Were the Americans under attack at the consulate in Benghazi Libya denied requests for help during that attack? And is it fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and we’ll all find out after the election?

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened. These are folks who served under me who I had sent to some very dangerous places. Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. But we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I have made a commitment to the families impacted as well as to the American people, we’re going to bring those folks to justice. So, we’re going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn’t happen again but we’re also going to make sure that we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.

    KYLE CLARK: Were they denied requests for help during the attack?

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we’re going to find out exactly what happened, but what we’re also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks. ”
