Just a Bump in the Road?

 The 9/11/12 attack on our consulate in Libya, and murder of our ambassador and three Navy Seals was  a pre-planned terrorist attack, not an unorganized mob run amok.

Countless other American embassies around the world also underwent mob protests as part of the 9/11 anniversary. Our embassy had a three-day advance warning of this attack, yet no added security was put in place!
But, unbelievably, Obama recently appeared on the “60 Minutes” TV show, and called these incidents just “Bumps in the Road” in our foreign policy programs!!

Good God, four dead Americans are just a “bump in the road”??
Further, at the recent fall UN General Assembly meeting  in New York City, with all world leaders-and Obama- attending, Israel’s Prime Minister, Netanyahu, asked for a meeting with Obama.
Yet Obama claimed to be “too busy” to meet with Netanyahu, but does  have time to appear on the “View” TV show, a ladies talk show!! This is patently a gross dereliction of Presidential duty!
On top of all the domestic economic disasters looming, Obama’s foreign policy positions are an absolute disaster! We are heading “over the cliff” as a  nation, both domestically and internationally!
God help America if this “community organizer” is re-elected!
