That would definitely be an effective strategy. Shit, they might let her speak at the next convention.

Doesn't matter. Remember the words Mission Accomplished? George W. Bush never said them, but he owned them when the crew of the ship posted that banner. Obama can't take back what he said. He is just fortunate that the media does not make his gaffes headline news.

If Obama is not careful enough when speaking with Jon Stewart to choose the correct words to convey what he means, then how can you trust him to do so with the leaders of other countries?

Yea, I conceded that point 2 times so just apologize and stop making excuses it's nauseating having to parents like this woman relive the his verbal insensitivity repeatedly.

I suppose without a teleprompter obama is reduced to parroting back words others say to him. The "Stewart said it first" defense doesn't stand up.

Does it really fricking matter about the word 'optimal'? Have you heard an interview with this woman? She said her son was killed, Obama hugged her while looking uninterested, and said they would get to the bottom of this. Then, crickets.

Panetta said that he would speak to her frequently to update her on the situation. Again, she said, she has heard nothing.

"Remember all the press coverage Cindy Sheehan received? Not so much with these parents."

Amazing, isn't it?

By the way, I very much opposed the Iraq War from the outset and still see the hypocrisy in this.

Shame on her. She should be PROUD that her son died for Our Glorious Fuhrer Obama.

This is way different and should be getting news coverage unlike Sheehan.
Sheehan's son voluntarily signed up to join the military. He was a soldier killed on the battlefield.
Chris Stevens was an Ambassador appointed by the Obama administration to serve as the representative of the U.S. in Libya. He was entitled to protection like all other ambassadors, such as the one in Paris, yet he didn't receive it.

"Please Stop Talking About My Son" - Mom of Navy Seal Killed in Benghazi Tells Romney

I guess youi all missed that one. And the fact that the SEAL relayed to a close friend of his that Romney was a smug SOB and his meeting with him was 100% political and not genuine. At least Obama didn't use their names and a BS story about the time spent with them.

Posters on here are the biggest pettifoggers I think I've ever known. Can someone who doesn't only watch Fox News post once in a while.

That said, no politician should ever say that the death of a sitting US ambassador, or any US citizen in a terrorist attack, is "not optimal"


But this is the crux of the misunderstanding.

Stewart was describing the response following the libya attack as not optimal.

Obama then agreed that the response was not optimal.


Again, terrible word choice, but this is a "Binders full of women" level of criticism of obama.

This is what I'm thinking. I wish both sides would lay off the terminology crap that nobody cares about. Half the time they are throwing spaghetti at a dart board to see what sticks. And of course Fox News goes after the mother as if they really give a flying frick that her son was killed. He's a pawn to them now.

She is angry that no one will give her an honest answer. She feels like everyone is lying to her.

Did someone at fox news frick your mother or something? I don't think I've seen a post of yours that doesn't mention fox news in someway.

Her son's death is his fault not Obama's. Quiting blaming him.

I'm a conservative and I really don't see what the big deal is about this quote. I watched the interview and Obama's statement made sense in the context. However, his statement was used to avoid answering the question.

Nope, and I enjoy most all of Fox until it gets to that scumbag Hannity. Pettifogging extreme right bible thumping retard about sums it up for him. I guess I should have named him first off. And Greta for playing that over and over without showing how the word optimal was actually brought up.

It's typical to latch onto anything Obama says and worry it to death, like a pack of yapping dogs. It's refreshing to hear some common sense on this board for a change.
