Barack Obama is a despicable human being who deserves no respect whatsoever. In today’s press conference, he finally admits that he sent someone who knew nothing about Benghazi out to the American people at his express direction to talk about Benghazi. WTF!!!!!

Here’s what Obama told reporters:

But let me say specifically about Susan Rice, she has done exemplary work. She has represented the United States and our interests in the United Nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. As I’ve said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.

This should not be surprising. I have said all along that Rice was carrying Obama’s water at his direction. Now we have confirmation.

But this fact begs a simple question–Why in the hell does Obama send someone who knows nothing about the issue to represent him to the nation?

That’s the question the press should have asked and should press for going forward. Why turn to Rice, who clearly knew nothing about Benghazi? Why not send the Director of the CIA or the Director of the National Security Council or the Director of National Intelligence?

It is a total, complete lie that Rice was “sharing what the intel community gave her.” The intel community was reporting the exact opposite. By the evening of 11 September 2012 in Washington, DC, the intelligence community, at least on the military side of the house, squarely and unambiguously placed the blame for the attack on Ansar Al Sharia.

How long must we bear a liar and fraud like Obama?
