Obama says attacks in Libya & Egypt are just “bumps in the road”, that peace is coming

Obama still thinks the change happening in the Middle East is a good thing and says the Libya and Egypt attacks on our embassies and consulates are just “bumps in the road”. He describes “strains” of extremism and anti-Americanism that still need to be controlled. But in the end he predicts more peace and prosperity in the Middle East and N. Africa.

    What a fricken IDIOT!!!! THis guy is dangerous!!!!

    • RocklinConservative

      No .. he just an IDIOT. The one’s he abetted are dangerous.

    • mrcombi

      Heard a term that fits this disaster, juvenile-delinquent-in-chief. All this narcissist can see is the adoring masses praising his every word…

  • justplainbob

    Right Barack. Whatever you say.

  • hbnolikeee

    Ok. Move there.

  • poljunkie

    Well Mr President, I dont consider an American Ambassador and our Marines to be a bump in the road.
    Show some respect.

    • Darn right sister! I thought the same. I wonder if the families of our fallen consider this a bump. Damn his disrespect and thoughtless remarks make me gag.

    • RocklinConservative

      Great point … make that an ad and show how disdainful this tool is.

    • President Obama has some experience with using ‘bump in the road’ to explain things…


      • Excellent! Thanks for the link, and welcome to Scoop Navy Gentleman!
        And thank you for your service as well!!

        • Thank you.

          If you remember in the early days of the jobs disaster, Obama’s metaphor of choice was “stuck in a ditch”. After he discovered that he couldn’t get out of that ditch, he decided that a bump in the road was the spin he needed since he had no idea how to get American’s back to work. Now we find that his foreign policy is ‘stuck in a ditch’ and he is simply doing what he always does when he has no idea what to do – campaign.

        Welcome to our site, Navy Gentleman.

        And your service to our country is appreciated.

    • 12grace

      I wonder if obama would think it was “a bump ion the road” if terrorists, sodomized him, mutilated his genitals while he was alive, then butchered and killed him and dragged HIS body through the streets.

  • tvlgds

    The “bump” must be on his head. He’s obviously brain damaged if he believes the bovine excrement he spews. Of course, his idea of peace in the mid-east is having all of them controlled by radical, America hating, Islamists.

  • keyesforpres

    Yeah, those silly little acts of war are just bumps in the road, right Comrade Obama….you look high again.

    This is a good ad for Republicans….”bump in the road”. Sickening.

    • kong1967

      I don’t know if Romney would, or even should, go there. Like you, I also think it would make a great ad but it might be considered as being disrespectful to the four that died. I could be wrong.

      EDIT: I changed my mind. All Romney would have to do is say an attack on our embassy is an act of war and Obama said it was a bump in the road.

  • Patriot077

    What an a$$.
    A more realistic picture of him is the video Dreams from my Real Father. It’s about 90 mins. long. Watch it here: http://www.ourcommunistcommanderinchief.com/

    • keyesforpres

      Oh yeah, Comrade Davis is definitely his real dada, and he grew up knowing it. I believe his buddy Bill Ayers concocted the Obama Sr. story when they met at Occidental.

  • Barack was projecting when said how the Demigog taps into the anger of “useful idiots” aka Obama voters

  • MarieC

    Also, according to him….it was “noise”….This man has no clue…none.

    I’m absolutely disgusted with this man that occupies the White House…disgusted…

    • Landscaper

      Oh yeah, he does have a clue alright and its not in our best interest. This guy has a plan and he and his buddies have been cooking this up for their entire lives.

      • StrangernFiction

        It boggles the mind how few people understand this.

        • Landscaper

          The sheep will be herded my friend and no one is pulling the wool over OUR eyes!

      • kong1967

        Yes, and it has been evident from what little we know of Obama’s past, too. We may not know as much as what we should because they have covered it up, but what we know is all bad.

  • MaroonRepublic

    If Romney or a Republican president would have said that, the media would be calling him delusional.

  • Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
    The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
    Isaiah 59:7,8

    They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
    Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.
    Jeremiah 6:14,15

    There will never be true peace until Jesus comes and reclaims His dominion and righteous rule.

    What dear leader believes in is a false peace, for the sheeple to go back to sleep while they continue to change the world into their version of utopia on earth. As for me, I wait for God’s Will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

  • Just to be absolutely clear. Obama is calling this picture a bump in the road.


    He absolutely has to go.

    • I hate that picture, just like I hate some of the other photos and footage of islamic atrocities I’ve seen in the past 11 years, but I am grateful to those who spread them around. They need to be seen. People have GOT to wake up to the real islam.

      This stuff breaks my heart, and to think that we’ve got a steady stream of these kinds of acts, well, I never would have believed I’d see such evil in my lifetime when I was younger.

      • kong1967

        …and Obama helped make it more powerful and more wide-spread with the Arab Spring. He supported all of it and actually participated in Libya….even though it was known that some of the rebel leaders were Al Qeda.

    • mike3e4r7

      Do you remember when that picture first came out, how the lamestream media described it and similar video as Libyans trying to drag Ambassador Stevens to the hospital to get him medical help? These terrorists are shown dragging our Ambassador’s corpse through the streets, and the traitorous lapdog media tried to convince us that they were concerned for his safety and were trying to get him medical help? We should never let the media forget their disgraceful immoral and traitorous actions in convering the 9/11 Libyan terrorist attacks.

      • kong1967

        What media? All I see is an extension of the Democrat party. Dems don’t need government controlled media, they’ve got the lamestream media.

    • kong1967

      The people on that site are a lot more open about how they feel about Obama. I loved it.

  • Ford Prefect

    Peace in our time where have we heard that before.

    • kong1967

      Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize…for what? He was in office for something like 9 days, maybe a couple weeks. Yet he continued both wars, and even beefed up the troops in both places at different times. Then he got us involved in another war to free the muslims, and that’s like freeing rabid wolverines from their cages.

      The world situation is sitting real bad right now, and Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize. Evidently for setting up the world for imminent massive war.

  • sjmom

    Whose interests, Barack? Not our interest nor in the interest of anyone who understands radical Islam. However, since you are hell bent on destroying America it is in your interest to see the radicals in power.

  • p m

    Democracy and universal rights. So that’s what this is? And four dead Americans are a ‘bump in the road’? This guy is nuts.

    Noting the encouraging nods from the interviewer, compared to the empty gaze of hostility and incomprehension from Pelley.

  • RocklinConservative

    LOL … Morsi said today that they are not going to bend to what the US wants (paraphrasing of course) … he made it clear, they will not be like Mubarak and we were going to have to play by their rules. hmmmm … gotta wonder what them bumps are gonna look like.

    • p m

      But hey, don’t worry, the US Senate just voted 81 to 10 to keep funding these rats, and Libya and Pakistan too. Jizzya, anyone?

      • kong1967

        The weakest argument I’ve heard for this is that Pakistan has nukes and we don’t want them to fall in the hands of terrorists. Really? Pakistan was hiding Bin Laden and arrests anyone that squeels on the terrorists. Gee, looks to me like they work with the terrorists anyway. If they want the terrorists to have nukes they will give them nukes (for dirty bombs), and our money isn’t going to stop them.

      • RocklinConservative

        How do you spell stupid … CONGRESS

    • kong1967

      More like earthquakes.

  • When Bush was in office…everything was a disaster throughout the world according to this Marxist….yet every resource he used to get Bin Laden was because of Bush…he took over and Iraq has regressed…Afghan is a nightmare…the Arab Spring has become as Islamic Winter and this fool tells us this disaster called the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran racing to a Nuke….is just hunky doory!! Hey Marxist tell that to the dead seals and Chris Stevens’ family!!! America looks weaker by the day….he is gutting our Military but NO WORRIES THE MESSIAH SAYS ALL IS WELL….is that what he will tell the liberal hacks on the View like he did David Letterman….while the world burns this fool churns!!

    How ignorant and utterly dangerous man this is….oh yeah America all is well!!!

    • Excellent rant Michael.

    • kong1967

      He takes credit for everything he didn’t do, and he blames Republicans for everything he did do.

  • Mark Smith

    Go see Obama 2016 (or watch it when Fox broadcasts it). There is a fascinating image of a large map of the Middle East with the countries stretching across that have become radical muslim dominated and now controlled. The filmmaker calls this “The United States of Radical Islam” stretching west-ward and now including Egypt. Four more years? Watch Turkey fall.

  • He is CRAZY!!! Christ will be here REAL soon and I sure wouldnt want to be in his shoes!

  • kong1967

    I am so glad you generalize what he says, RS, because my head wants to explode every time I here that moron talk.

    (To Obama:) Bumps in the road, huh? There were riots all around the world you stupid idiot. You keep trying to sell an illusion as fact at the expense of national security and American lives. I hope you get creamed so bad in November that you will be ashamed to even show your face. Resign on November 7th you Marxist “muslim wanna-be”!!

  • Politicians don’t get it. You can’t appease your way to being liked and respected. The sand rats are burning effigies of Obama the same as they had, if not more than President Bush.

    As I recall, Bush tried to do the same thing with Democrats. Same results though- the more hunny he gave them the more they hated him. The only way you can gain respect of dummies is to take control. A lot could be learned by watching a wild dog pack. Diplomacy is only achievable when you are dealing with civilized people. Otherwise establishing yourself as the top of the nipping order is the only diplomacy you need.

  • The wheels on the bus go thump thump thump… All the lives that Obama’s complete mishandling of National Security has taken, insubstantial. See, nothing is more important then his absolute power. This is why instead of using our armed forces to protect against attacks against Americans, he proposes using it to attack Americans.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

  • Susitna

    Is he doing drugs again? I think that we have here a National Security problem, if Obama is high, Biden is senile, Hillary is on pain killers and alcohol and Susan Rice is in denial.

  • Susitna

    What Obama was trying to say is that Al-Mahdi is coming after he finishes up the U.S.A.
    and Islam takes over. This is Obama’s plan. The deaths of Americans are only bumps on the road for him and after the election – don’t forget – he will have more flexibility.
    How can any MSM-member, Hollywood star and others support this guy and sleep at night?

  • 911Infidel

    The ME is going to hell in a handbasket. WTF is that moron talking about? Peace will come to the ME when Christ returns and helps his people crush the Islamist death cult. Till then it will be open-ended war to annihilate the Jews and Christians.

  • Sandra123456

    Every time Barry throws someone under the bus there is a bump in the road. That bus has hit a lot of bumps.

    • toongoon

      Those bumps aren’t potholes.

  • toongoon

    Hmmm. They’ll be more aligned with our interests? Everything this Tiger Woods wannabe does is more aligned with their interests.

    There’s always more bumps in the road before you run out road.

  • toongoon

    This is a press conference from a couple days ago warning of possible impeachment. They make many good points in it. It is good those points made by officials.


  • Sober_Thinking

    This guy is absolutely dillusional. I’m stunned at his incompetence, ignorance and arrogance.

  • anotherworriedmom

    The only peace and prosperity that will come from his policies will happen in 1 of 2 ways: either I am wearing a burka or someone else is with their virgins (where ever that may be).

  • GEDouglas

    He is complete denial of reality and for whatever reason, (ego, lack of empathy, incompetence, constant campaigning) cannot except or admit the failure of his policies. A dangerous time to have a man of his low caliber and worldview as CinC. As Shoebat said…the Muslim Brotherhood saw an opportunity beginning with his Cairo speech; recognizing him as an Islamic sympathizer and a desire to punish America. I’ve chalked it all up to incompetence in the past…I’m now thinking it is all intentional…he is doing all he can do to weaken this country economically, militarily, and spiritually.

    • toongoon

      At this point, incompetence is out of the question, it’s intentional.

  • That “bump” in the road was the body of our embassador in Libya. How DARE he say treat this as a minor “setback?” Maybe Bill Maher was right the other day. If at this stage of the game you still don’t know who to vote for, you really are a jerk and should stay home. Obama has proved time and again that he’s not only incompetent, but that his views are dangerous, too, especially to the people of Israel. I would think that’s kind of obvious by now. So vote for Romney and maybe, just maybe, we will have a chance at surviving what’s about to happen to the world next year.

  • This man is so delusional and his idiocy knows no bounds. There will never be peace with the Medina minded Muslims and their love of their prophet Mohammad. As long as they practice what Mohammad did and will do. there will never be peace in the world from the tyranny of Medina Islam.

  • anneinarkansas

    Bumps in the Road? Noise? The film caused it?
    This man has an empty head and heart.
    Maybe Whoopi can have a breakthough this afternoon!

  • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

    Just “bumps in the road” of a CIA operation gone horribly bad. It seems that Christ Sevens was using his ambassadorship as a cover for the CIA Middle East Fast and Furious Operation that was going on. Stevens and the two Navy Seals (CIA) were brokering deals to recover weapons that this Obama administration gave to al-Qaeda to help take down Gaffadi. One of the Navy Seals was interviewed by ABC two weeks prior to this tragic event in Libya and he told the reporter that he was involved in the business of getting back weapons. There is a very strong possibility that Stevens and these two Navy Seals were brokering an approved deal to trade the Blind Sheikh of the 1993 WTC bombing for a huge bunch of large weapons and it blew up in their faces that one bad night. All just a “bump in the road” and if the media doesn’t pursue this story it will be just another example of just how far they have their heads up Obama’s butt.

    • marketcomp

      So I guess the fact that it has been 25 years since an ambassador was killed is just a bump in the road! This man is cold! He has no heart and no soul!

      This is not the case with Romney. Regardless of the portrayal and demonizing of Romney by Obama we know that he loves this country and he cares about the people.

  • Hologram5

    This cat is utterly CLUELESS.

  • NYGino

    Somebody please tell this clown that the tooth fairy doesn’t exist.

  • KenInMontana

    To him we are all just “bumps in the road”, it’s time to show him that we are actually one of those three foot curbs that will rip the axles off of that bus of his.

    • Truly amazing! how our current President views the boots on the ground out there working to protect freedom, helping in other countries to preserve our way of life only to be tossed under the bus for giving the ultimate sacrifice as bumps in the road?
      Yes.. that’s exactly what he said before visiting Zero,nada World Leaders to discuss the unrest during the recent UN Assembly because of “scheduling conflicts” But had plenty of time to visit the ladies of “The View” US network television and said he was told he was “Eye Candy” the reason for his visit to the show.

  • Where in this segment does PBHO say four dead Americans are bumps in the road?

    Yer all sheep, told what to think by the likes of a sex-addicted, obese drug addict, a Saudi-run television network and the dolts who continue to leech off the questionable legacy of a dead rage-a-holic.

    Baaaaaaaa. You’ll all make great sweaters, just in time for the WAR ON CHRISTMAS!!!!111!

  • 12grace

    I think Israel will hit Iran before the election so obama supports Israel’s actions. Not because obama cares about Isreal, he just wants the Jewish vote.

    • I don’t think they will …Iran needs Obama to stay in power so tha when they do strike (again) he will keep us from doing anything about it.

  • Did Mr. Obama just call the dragging through the streets and horrific murder of US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens along with murdered US Navy Seals just “A bump in the road”? You bet..
