On the Night Four Americans Were Murdered in Benghazi, President Obama Voted ‘Present’
February 7, 2013  //  By:   //  President Obama  //  6 Comments

As a Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama was criticized for taking numerous votes off by voting ‘present’.  By voting present, Obama avoided having to make decisions, and avoided having to manage difficult situations.

On the night of September 11th, President Obama avoided making tough decisions and managing difficult situations once again – except this time, his lack of leadership coincided with a terrorist attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

He voted ‘present’ during a terror attack, and was nowhere to be found.

Via the Weekly Standard (h/t Memeorandum):

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012:

Panetta said, though he did meet with Obama at a 5 o’clock prescheduled gathering, the president left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, “up to us.”

In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that night. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

Unbelievable.  Watch video of Panetta’s testimony below…

    So SecDef didn’t think a terrorist attack was worth waking the President. Sounds as if he should be looking for a job.

    Traitors abound. We have many in this regime.

    Obama is a man who just supplied a Major terrorist with 200 Tanks, 30 F16’s and some high tech missile ships. Egypt is now hosting the President of Iran (who now touts he has enough Nuclear material for 4 Bombs)… and you wonder why Obama doesn’t care about a few Americans dying at the hands of terrorists?? God is allowing America to be run by the devil & his minions because it has completely rejected Him.

    He was “nowhere to be found” because he was upstairs packing for his “more important” rendezvous with Jay Z in Las Vegas, THE VERY NEXT DAY!

    Probably the gay house in Las Vegas as he was reported to be in Vegas. Rahm Emanuel was taking care of the one in Chicago.
