Obama ducks tough questions on Benghazi

President Barack Obama just continues to avoid questions on requests that were made for help in the Libya attacks on our consulate and the killing of our ambassador and three other brave Americans.

President Obama did not give a yes or no answer last Friday when asked pointedly whether the Americans under attack in Benghazi were denied requests for help during the attack

However, it has been reveled that Mr. Obama was watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi unfold from the White House.

Apparently, two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack in which Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed.

This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, including representatives of the Central Intelligence Agency, Pentagon, everybody, was watching this go down, and President Obama was one of those in the White House Situation Room watching this sad event in real time.

No, we cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama.
