Barack Hussein Obama Calls Middle East Protests, Attacks & Murder of US Ambassador … “These Are Not Bumps in the Road” … Romney Rips Obama for Comments & Foreign Policy
BUMP IN THE ROAD = OBAMA FAILURE!
This is why Obama avoids interviews and would be crushed if he ever had to deal the the MSM as Republicans must. Obama crumbles like a house of cards when trying to provide his point of view without a teleprompter. This is why Obama opts for the “David Letterman Show” and “The View”.
During President Barack Hussein Obama’s disastrous “60 Minutes” interview, Obama referred to the recent protests, attacks and murders as “Bumps in the Road”. WHAT! The United States had an Ambassador assassinated and a Muslim Brotherhood leader elected in Egypt and Obama considers this a “bump in the road”? How could any one, especially Barack Hussein Obama, who is said to care so much bout America, consider the death of an American … A BUMP IN THE ROAD!!! How callous could one possibly be? How out of touch could Obama also be to view the Muslim Brotherhood take over and a nuclear Iran as just noise and and a “bump in the road. To paraphrase a comment that Obama previous made, Dear Mr. President … “You built this”.
Once is a bad day, but twice in a row should worry Democrats. President Obama followed his gaffe-ridden Univision interview with an outing on Sunday on “60 Minutes” that is destined to wind up in a series of Mitt Romney ads. There was this on the recent developments in the Middle East, including the death of four Americans:
Obama has used “bump in the road” before, in reference to unemployment, which was the inspiration for one of Romney’s best ads. Obama’s “bumps” seems to be what other people would call “failure.”
Mitt Romney Slams Obama for his “bump in the road” comment and failed foreign policy
Via Hot Air, Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer imagining today’s news in an alternate universe where the media is fair. If a Republican had made the “bump in the road” ill advised comment, it would have been a 3 days news story and the corrupt MSM complex would have hammered home just how insensate the GOP candidate was.

The former Secretary of State describing the future of Middle East peace and security for the State of Israel as one which will include “bumps in the road,” and former Ambassador Paul Bremer seeing the future and security of Iraq as one being paved with “bumps in the road.”
Conclusion? President Obama was simply using a common phrase when describing highly volatile international situations, much the same as former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice as well as former Ambassador Paul Bremer. Both, as we well know, are Republicans.
CBS: “Have the events that took place in the Middle East, the recent events in the Middle East given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the Arab Spring?”
BHO: “Well, I’d said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. The question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. I think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights, a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance. But I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because, you know, in a lot of these places, the one organizing principle has been Islam. The one part of society that hasn’t been controlled completely by the government. There are strains of extremism, and anti-Americanism, and anti-Western sentiment. And, you know, can be tapped into by demagogues. There will probably be some times where we bump up against some of these countries and have strong disagreements, but I do think that over the long term we are more likely to get a Middle East and North Africa that is more peaceful, more prosperous and more aligned with our interests.”
In light of the CBS question and answer from the transcript, you are really trying to interpret this answer to include the terrorist attack in Libya? What part of the question opens up the door so that anything that happens in any of these “Arab Spring” countries is considered to be included? I know it says recent events as part of the context, but does that mean every word of the questions can be turned to mean anything at all in the interpretation?
Has Obama ever said anything about the terrorist attack and the deaths that indicate he thinks these are “bumps in the road”, or has he instead spoken of them with the due respect and seriousness that the attack and aftermath warrants?
Common sense tells me this line of thinking on what Obama said is quite a stretch and is strictly politics to raise a stink.
SM: I should expect no less from an Obama apologist. A bump in the road >>> death of Americans in Libya.
