What's Not Optimal
By Peter Kirsanow
Having a president who perpetuates a falsehood to the American people about the cause of a terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of four Americans.
Having a president who uses $70,000 of taxpayers’ money to promote that falsehood on Pakistani television.
Having a president who broadcasts that falsehood to the world using the megaphone of a speech before the U.N. General Assembly.
Having a president who repeats the falsehood in front of the caskets of the four Americans killed in Benghazi.
Having a president who will casually wreak havoc on the life of an obscure video producer to protect that falsehood.
Having a president who, before a television audience of 65 million Americans, evades answering the question of “who denied enhanced security” to the consulate in Benghazi.
Having a president who feigns offense at the suggestion his machinations regarding the Benghazi debacle may have a political component.
Having a president who believes killing bin Laden constitutes a foreign policy.
Having a president who projects confusion, weakness, and diffidence to our enemies.
Having a media blind to the fact that this is a titanic scandal.
