Obama On 60 Minutes Calls Terror Attacks In Egypt, Libya "Bump In The Road"

Four Americans, including the US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, were killed by Islamic terrorists on 9/11/2012. Stevens was also sodomized by his attackers and dragged through the streets.

The US Embassy in Egypt was attacked on the same day as well.

The Obama Regime knowingly gave false information on these attacks to the media.

Now, last night on 60 Minutes, Richard Milhous Obama callously called these terrorist attacks a "bump in the road." (Kristinn Taylor - FreeRepublic.com)

This may be the first time in history that a President of the United States has called a terrorist attack against the country a "bump in the road." (September 23, 2012).

CBS's Steve Kroft asked, “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?” 

President Obama answered, “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.”
A bump in the road?  Sounds like a "President" who is completely disengaged with what is going on not only in this nation, but the threats from outside that we face.

He won't meet with Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu at the UN this week, but he'll appear with those cackling hens on The View. Chris Wallace at Fox News had Robert Fibbs stumbling all over himself to explain why Obama acts more like a celebrity than a President.

On top of that, Obama wants to release more Islamic terrorist suspects from Club Gitmo, even one of bin Laden's bodyguards. Never mind that one of those behind the Benghazi attack was released from Gitmo.

This is a complete disengagement from the threats that clearly face us.

We have 43 days to change this.
