Obama was staying out of the way of trained professionals, what a good leader does.
p.s.
Shouldn't you be building a bunker for the upcoming civil war instead of posting here?
You really are eat up with the dumbass, aren't you?

It required presidential authority to override the default orders of the AC-130 and Force Recon Marine units specifically positioned to respond to an attack specifically on the embassy in Libya.
If Obama was "staying out of the way", who in the White House wasn't staying out of the way and gave those orders with the authority of the president to hang the Americans out to dry in Benghazi and watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?

As I understand it, only the president has presidential authority.

So, who's actually president?

... I'm bored with playing along with your dodge. Just answer the goddam question:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

Just give us a location.

All easy questions for Obama vs:
'But I did find a 60 Minutes interview with George W. Bush. Here are the questions Scott Pelley asked him:
• "The war on terror, in a sense, began in this room, began in this cabin where your Cabinet meeting was held. Back then the whole country was with you. And now you seem to have lost them. Why do you think so?"
• "Most Americans at this point in time don't believe in this war in Iraq. They want you to get us out of there."
• "But wasn't it your administration that created the instability in Iraq?"
• "It's much more unstable now, Mr. President."
• "You mention mistakes having been made in your speech. What mistakes are you talking about?"
• "Fair to say there are not enough American troops on the ground to provide security for Iraq?"
• "Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job?"
• "You are gambling a lot, Mr. President, on the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Why do you think that's a gamble worth making?"
• "I was on the battlefield in Najaf when al-Sadr's people killed your United States Marines."
• "Do you believe that the House has the constitutional authority to prevent you from the troop build-up? Can they stop you?"
• "Do you believe as commander-in-chief you have the authority to put the troops in there no matter what the Congress wants to do?"
• "You know better than I do that many Americans feel that your administration has not been straight with the country, has not been honest. To those people you say what? Like the weapons of mass destruction? No credible connection between 9/11 and Iraq."
• "The Office of Management and Budget said this war would cost somewhere between $50 billion and $60 billion and now we're over 400."
• "When was it that you first found out or it dawned on you that, indeed, there were no weapons of mass destruction? And I wonder, did you think,'What have I done?'"
• "What should the American people look for in this war plan? When will they know whether it's working or not?"
• "What would you say right now in this interview to the Iranian president about the meddling in Iraq?"
• "I wonder if you feel like you've been ill-served by your Cabinet members, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, perhaps even Vice-President Dick Cheney. Wrong on WMD. Wrong on the connection between 9/11 and Iraq. And now you're in a fix. And I wonder if you look back and wonder who let you down."
• "The vice president suggested there was a connection, not necessarily 9/11, but certainly to al-Qaeda."
• "Final question. How can you escalate the war when so many people in this country seem to be against it?"
A stunning contrast, isn't it? I won't speculate about personal ideological bias. It's possible that Pelley is just a much better journalist than Kroft. I will say that there is a glaring double standard in the coverage that 60 Minutes has afforded the two presidents…

Jane it’s pretty simple to understand, any interview Obama does with the Liberal Media has been pre-approved by the WH 60 minutes was No difference!! That’s why I thought Kroft comments was so revealing!! Kroft on Obama:'I Think He Knows That We're Not Going to Play Gotcha with Him!' It’s pretty hard to Play Gotcha when you know the script!!

You know damn well where e was at 11 PM.
The battle was 7 goddam hours long, and "11 PM" just doesn't cover that time period. Where was the empty chair?

So, the question remains unanswered:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

You wanted to know where Obama got his money. He gets it from the Treasury Dept.
You really have a problem reading and comprehending the written English language. Read carefully:

The Treasury Department isn't a source of money. It is a repository of money. Incidentally, the Treasury Department is already 16.5 trillion dollars in debt. It doesn't have any money to give.
So, the question remains:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A source of money is required to answer the question.
To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer this question.

It's getting late...but just have to say there are mixed reports of the video of Ambassador's body being helped or taunted.
If my initial response was wrong based on misinformation reported and that these men were, in fact, helping to get him to the hospital, I will be the first to admit it.
But because we have been left in the dark by this administration about all of the facts surrounding this incident, the mixed messages will continue.
Apparently, Obama is saying this video shows these men are helping the Ambassador to a car and to the hospital.
But he also insisted the terrorist attack was because of a video two weeks later.
This is the problem we have with this president. He can't be trusted to tell us the truth.
Yeah, you're in the dark alright, but it's got nothing to do with the President.

Americans really ARE selfish: Study finds individuals are only motivated by self-serving acts
Study says appeals to Americans' individuality more likely to motivate

White U.S. students made less effort when told to use teamwork
However Asian Americans were moved by appeals to interdependence

You claim a civil war is inevitable and I'M the dumbass???
You keep asking the same dumbass question and YOU"RE bored???
You didn't respond to how I exposed your faulty logic on the same dumbass question you keep asking and I"M the one "dodging"?????
By your own logic, congress controls the budget:
<Quote DBWriter> "Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to all the Republican legislation that made the government fiscally sound."
Wouldn't a more logical question be, Where's Obama going to get the money that congress spent?

Regarding Benghazi, there is ZERO evidence that Obama interfered with the on site military and State Department officials that were handling the situation. Where he was at the time is no more relevant than where you were at the time.

You can google to find out who the president is.

I don't recall Obama lying to the American people in order to start a war. A war that would be a cake walk, over quickly & paid for by Iraqi oil. A war that killed 4000 US soldiers.
So real dave how many of our US soldiers have been killed in the last 4 years since the reign of O'bigears.
Yes dave former President Bush has been gone 4 years and counting.
O'bigears was going to bring all our troops home remember?
When former President was in office there was a daily body count by the drive by media to discredit the war and a by product was a cheapening of the sacrifices our brave men and women made.
Now there is not a mention of the total deaths sine O'bigears has been in office and he certainly had the power to bring our people home.
No O'bigears lied to the American people to continue a war he promised to stop.
You got a bad rememberer
