New American Crossroads Ad Hits Empty Chair on Foreign Policy: “Mr. President: It’s time to show up for work”

This new American Crossroads ad is sure to make liberal heads explode:

Via The Miami Herald:

Karl Rove’s American Crossroads SuperPAC, which has bought up loads of TV time in Florida, airs virtually every conservative grievance with President Obama’s foreign policy in this new ad: Skipped intelligence briefings and playing 100 rounds of golf; campaign fundraisers after an ambassador is murdered in Libya; cold relations with Israel’s conservative leader amid nuclear-arms tensions with Iran; and “celebrity” ties to David Letterman, Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Gateway Pundit: Obama Is Wrong… Mideast Protests Were Planned Before YouTube Video Ever Made the Airwaves (Video):

White House Spokesman Jay Carney told reporters today that the Middle East protests were in response to a video.

“These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region… The unrest we’ve seen in the region has been in reaction to a video.”

The Muslim protests were planned back in August – before the film was ever released.
The protest in Cairo was organized by the terror group, Jamaa Islamiya.
USA Today reported:

The protest was planned by Salafists well before news circulated of an objectionable video ridiculing Islam’s prophet, Mohammed, said Eric Trager, an expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

The protest outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was announced Aug. 30 by Jamaa Islamiya, a State Department-designated terrorist group, to protest the ongoing imprisonment of its spiritual leader, Sheikh Omar abdel Rahman. He is serving a life sentence in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

So Carney’s still telling reporters  that they’ve seen no information to suggest that it was a pre-planned attack….?
I’m just a little old nobody from flyover country who’s been traveling for two days straight, yet I’ve been able to gather that it was indeed, a pre-planned attack, for Pete’s sake….
Why does the administration feel the need to pretend otherwise? Could it be because they know that these embassies in unstable Middle Eastern countries were left insecure and vulnerable on 9/11, and they don’t want to get blamed for the ensuing carnage? So they’re using the Muslim extremists’ own propaganda as a fig leaf?
Too disgusting for words.

  1. And who is surprised Carney is lying? He’s no better at it than was Fibbs, and certainly not in the same class of believable (by liberal standards, anyway) lying as the Prevaricator-in-Chief.

    And sadly, many, many people don’t care if they’re being lied to because that’s the only way for the jackass socialists to stay in power and keep those “evil” Republicans out of the WH.

    What’s wrong with that picture? (Hint: Think “Machiavelli” and “ends and means.”)
