Leftist Media Praises Obama For Telling The Truth About Skeet Shooting; Ignores The Fact He Lied About Benghazi

When the White House released a photograph of President Obama skeet shooting, the folks over at MSNBC were giddy with excitement and praise:

But when Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday, it was revealed that President Obama had lied about his activities on the night Ambassador Chris Stevens and four other Americans were dragged from the U.S. embassy in Benghazi and slaughtered by an insurgent mob:

The attack on the consulate had already been under way for 90 minutes at that time. Neither the president nor anyone else from the White House called afterwards to check what was happening; the Commander-in-Chief had left it "up to us," said Panetta.

Panetta's testimony directly contradicts President Obama's own claim to have issued "three direectives" as soon as he learned "what was going on" in Benghazi. As he told a Denver reporter in October:

I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.

That same claim was subsequently repeated by other Democrats, including Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who came to the president's defense. But if those directives were indeed given--and proof has never been produced--they were given long after the attack, not while the attack was going on, during which time the president did nothing.

Obama lied, Americans died. But the media is too impressed with his skeet shooting skills to notice.

1 You would think the official propaganda arm of the democrat party would get their talking points straight among all the operatives.

4 Translation as read by truth detector-
1. 'We don't give a f ck about our personnel'.
2.'We are going to investigate ways to get away with this crap in the future. Just like we did with fastandfurious'.
3. "Make sure America never finds out we did this so we can never be brought to justice'.

5 I like to be skeptical of Obama but how exactly did he go Skeet Shooting when he was on the Golf Course that day?
So according to Reuters Obama celebrated his Birthday on the Golf Couse. They took a picture of him at the Course on Andrews AFB at 1652.

At this point on Aug 4 of 2012 there is not 3 hours and 24 minutes remaining in the day. ( http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=419&month=8&year=2012&obj=sun&afl=-11&day=1 )

Of those hours remaining there is probably only an hour and half to two hours of full sunlight. So we are to believe that he finished his game. Got to Marine 1. Flew to Camp David. Departed the Copter. Entered the compound. Changed. And then went out to go shooting skeet? ...not buying it. He took the photo recently and probably had a different background added since nothing is green yet.

6 To the leftist cheerleading squad "all the time" equals once. Uh-huh. I'm sure they would have let Bush get away with that. Riiiight.

7 This story was concocted to show Comrade Obama respects ths 2'nd Amendment and likes "good guns" and appropriate state approved activities with them, while wanting to ban and confiscate "bad guns" - which the state will have in abundance. Of course, Obama is an elitist hypocrite like most other pols. One set of rules for me and one for thee. I'm special.
