President Obama’s Daily Show Appearance – “Not Optimal”


English: President Barack Obama tapes an inter...By: Edmund Jenks – West Coast Editor

President Obama paid a call on “The Daily Show” taped for tonight, Thursday, submitting himself to the ritual of acerbic host Jon Stewart’s mix of tough questions and mock serious quips in an effort to reach a wide audience of potential voters less than three weeks before the election.

Stewart made Obama laugh several times, but he also pressed Obama on why his administration appeared “confused”

in its response to the terror attacks on American diplomatic personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11. The White House first said the attacks were in response to an anti-Muslim Internet video before later calling it a terrorist attack.

“We weren’t confused about the fact that four Americans had been killed,” Obama replied. “I wasn’t confused about the fact that we needed to ramp up diplomatic security around the world right after it happened. I wasn’t confused about the fact that we had to investigate exactly what happened so it gets fixed. And I wasn’t confused about the fact that we’re going to hunt down whoever did it.”

The president added that “every piece of information that we get, as we got it we laid it out to the American people [Really? … lie]. The picture eventually gets fully filled in.”

Republican nominee Mitt Romney has criticized the president’s handling of the incident, arguing that the White House had not been forthright and questioning why the administration had not provided more security for the Benghazi consulate.

Stewart suggested that the administration’s response had not been “optimal.”

“Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it,” Obama said.

This expression had this editor setting off on a bunch of “tweets” as it relates to the characterization of the bundle of lies that have come from this 44th Presidency about the murders in Libya as “NOT OPTIMAL”.
