Obama To Sandy Victims: “We Leave Nobody Behind”


Obama was out trying to “look” presidential yesterday in the wake of Sandy, and I caught this

The whole “hey, look, I’m acting presidential” speech was even worse, and he said:

(Breitbart) This is a tough time for a lot of people; millions of folks all across the Eastern Seaboard, but America’s tougher. And we’re tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an American is in need, all of us stand together to make sure we’re providing the help that’s necessary.

As John Nolte writes

That’s a beautiful sentiment, Mr. President, but where was it when the cameras weren’t rolling; when your government heard three plaintive pleas for assistance from Americans under attack and with help reportedly close enough to make a difference?

John points out that it is an interesting study in reactions, one where Obama is appearing as engaged and has suspended his campaign, the other where he tuned out and hit the campaign trail to head to Vegas. It begs the question “why did the Obama administration act in that fashion post-Benghazi?” Obama could have come out smelling like a rose had he sent in forces to rescue our people in Benghazi and come out strong against this terrorist attack. Instead, people are now wonder exactly what was going on that caused the administration to leave Americans to die.

The White House Flickr stream has a bunch of photos of Obama “looking concerned” over Sandy (such as this one), but nothing from September 11 when our people were under assault.

Nice Deb is not impressed by Obama’s words, nor is the PJ Tattler and The Gateway Pundit. I’m sure there will be plenty of photos of Obama “looking presidential” coming soon to be even more not impressed by.
