Oh, Say, You Can’t See, By The Hope Or The Change, What So Sadly We Beheld, Like Benghazi’s Last Blood Streaks

First, the United States has not properly mourned the deaths of our Libyan Ambassador, or the other three victims in the Benghazi tragedy. The Obama Administration piled deceit after the fact upon incompetence beforehand, and has still not come fully clean.

Thus it was with grisly irony that the blogs seized on Obama’s vainglorious corruption of our national flag:

Alongside the literal handwriting on the wall in Benghazi where the some final thoughts were communicated, perhaps while Barack was getting some much-needed rest:

And how do you know that American voices penetrated the fog in Obama’s head in a way those fingers in Benghazi couldn’t penetrate the wall? “Whoops! Our bad”

“Our bad”, indeed. In 2008. We either voted for an incompetent, or didn’t work hard enough to fend off an incompetent. While it’s a great thing that the U.S. elected a black man, removing the final stain of racism (except where evil ones on the Left strive to keep the stain in place) just about everything else about Obama has been a wash. And, if you take away bagging Osama, you lose that “just about”.
Obama deserves to be pilloried about taking down that flag ad, roughly as much as putting it up there in the first place.

    The most incompetent and un-American Administration in history takes down its cult of personality flag?

    My, my, my but they are sensitive to criticism, aren’t they?

    We elected our first Bolshevic president who happened to be Black, not exactly an achievement and most certainly a set back for Black folks.

    Hillary and her flying monkeys are scrambling to save her legacy, but she did that when she married Bill Clinton.

    She should have kicked him in the gnads years ago.

    From what I could tell, it looks like that excellent flag juxtaposition image was originally at ThePeoplesCube. It seems to be everywhere now, without attribution.

    Whoever did it might not want attribution, though. Attribution in this day and age looks like a guy with a scarf hiding his face, being herded by LEO’s into the paddy wagon.

    It could be seen as a setback for blacks. I hope not. When has the bar for success ever been lower than for the guy who follows Obama?

    Just show up for work, and you’ll likely do much better than the SCOAMF after one year.

    I had always believed the our first African-American president would be a Republican (Nixon to China sorta thing). Obamsky’s most significant characteristic by far, is his acute Bolshevism not his race. He won’t, and should not be remembered as our first Black president, but rather as our most radically leftist president and an unmitigated disaster having no redeeming value what so ever. That our first Black president is merely a damn commie shows the utter vacuity and superficialness of politically correct thinking and “checking the box”. When the history of his presidency is written it should always be caveatted by it’s total failure. His only possible success can only be the destruction of the Social Democratic Party and American leftism.

    If it weren’t for the fact that they can’t see reality and they still SUPPORT #OCCUPYRESOLUTEDESK, I could almost feel sorry for the people who bought one of those.

    BHO will be remembered as our first black president because that intrinsic characteristic is about the only thing there of positive note.
    The extrinsics are all lame.

    You hit it all! In the great records book of the Presidency, he should definitely get an asterisk next to everything he did, if not an outright ban from the game entirely.

    …For throwing like a girl.
