Barack Obama to Hurricane Sandy victims: “We leave nobody behind”
Unlike what happened during the Benghazi attack Barack Obama decided to don his Commander-in-Chief hat and take control of hurricane response and rescue efforts thereby showing the American people he was a true leader.
Today he reassured hurricane victims (of which I was one before Barack Obama singlehandedly restored power to Kingston, New Hampshire) that we had nothing to worry about because he had our backs:
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 stand together to make sure we’re providing the help that’s necessary.
That is fine, I have nothing against Barack Obama making it known that people who are affected by this storm will receive the help they need to make it through, but I just wish he had felt the same way when the terrorist attack in Benghazi was taking place.
There were four people there who needed help from Barack Obama-Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith–in fact they cried out for help three times but were ignored by Barack Obama even as he watched the attack carried out in real time.
In that case Barack Obama did in fact leave four people behind and did not give them the help they needed and requested. I suppose it is much easier for Barack Obama to sit in Washington and coordinate a response to a hurricane at home than it is for him to make a tough decision regarding our heroes abroad, but that doesn’t make his inaction in Benghazi any more acceptable.
In fact I would say he is over compensating in regards to Hurricane Sandy to show the American people that he really is the leader he failed to be when it came to Benghazi and I think the American people are not being fooled by this one bit because they can now compare and contrast his differing reactions to Benghazi and Sandy and they see a man who failed to live up to the most important duty he was entrusted with.
