Obama's Going to Las Vegas

By Fred Lucas

September 12, 2012

(Update: In a second schedule update issued around 10:42 a.m. on Wednesday, the White House indicated that President Obama would continue with his campaign trip to Las Vegas after issuing a statement on events in Libya and Egypt in the Rose Garden.

The only change in the updated schedule is this: "Shortly after (the Rose Garden statement), the President and Secretary Clinton will visit the State Department in Washington, DC. This visit is closed press." The updated schedule still states that "In the afternoon, the President will depart the White House en route Las Vegas, Nevada.")

( CNSNews.com )- On the day after the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, the White House on Wednesday morning released a schedule showing that President Obama would continue with his planned campaign trip to Las Vegas.

Before he leaves, the schedule indicated, Obama will "deliver a statement" in the White House Rose Garden at 10:35 a.m., the White House said.

Obama on Wednesday morning confirmed the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, the administration’s point man during the Libyan revolution, in a statement condemning the "outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans."

"While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants," Obama said.

The White House schedule released at 9:19 a.m. Wednesday, verbatim:

In the morning, the President will deliver a statement in the Rose Garden. Secretary of State Clinton will also attend. This statement is open press.

Romney is an opportunist who could care less about the grieving family members and instead chooses, or at least attempts, to take advantage of a tragic event but thank goodness this heartless man failed at it. He should stick to finding tax loopholes and fattening his Swiss bank accounts.

Romney condemned a statement issued BEFORE the attacks. As usual, he jumped the gun before knowing all the facts. The simpleton actually thought his tacky response would give him some foreign policy chops....but "thinking" conservatives have been cringing all morning KNOWING that Romney blew a golden opportunity to look presidential AND compassionate.

You wingnuts never miss an opportunity to criticize Obama, do you? If you had any brains, you'd be apologizing for Romney's anti-American statements today instead of going after Obama.

He should! It doesn't matter that the apology was put out before the attack, or that the apology was for a right wing film deliberating designed to incite Muslims, no American should ever apologize for ANYTHING ANYTIME ANYWHERE!

AMERICA earned the RIGHT to be RIGHT ALL the TIME in WW2 - Mitt understands this and knows that we should never Apologize!

Mitt embodies this - he won't apologize for ANYTHING, not his CAYMAN accounts, not his Tax Returns, not his unique way of transporting his dog, not is ignorance that the war in Afghanistan is still going on, not Romneycare, not the Ryan tax plan!

This is good as when seniors attack him for cutting mediare, he WONT apologize. When the poor and middle poor attack him for instituting toll roads on the interstates and selling off the useless parks, he won't apologize!

When our tax rate falls to 0 he won't apologize this is the kind of REAL AMERICAN we need leading us - Mitt, he is NOT SORRY for ANYTHING!

I will never confuse Mitt Romney with a patriot. He doesn't understand the concept of UNITED States of America.

The singular Lib on here that posts under multiple names is funny. You are saying it is OK that we have four (4) dead diplomats.

Hell, why would the President stay and take care of bid-ness in DC when he can go beg rich white folk for money in Vegas?

Obama needs to go hang out with the rich white folk. Getting re-elected is far more important than 4 dead diplomats.

Beg for campaign cash? Or honor fallen heroes?
Beg for campaign cash? Or deal with the scum that killed Americans?
Beg for campaign cash? Or be a real President?

Obama begs for campaign cash! What a man!

When I travel I take my cell and laptop with me so I can work on the road. I wonder why wingnuts think the President of the United States is tethered to a land line in the Oval Office.

This is the part of Obama's quote I think is wrong. We denigrate each other's religion(s) on a daily basis in the US. The difference is, we don't kill each other when it happens.
