It just keeps getting better and better. The Obama Administration couldn't be more clueless and asea in the real-world events now unfolding in the Middle East.
Less than an hour after Jay Carney denied the protests erupting throughout the Middle East were not directed at the United States, he has reversed himself--in carefully parsed language designed to maintain the illusion that he was telling the truth all along.
This is another Guy Benson hit from TownHall.com:
Guy Benson -Once more it is clear that this administration which, we have been informed (ad nauseum), is masterful in its handling of foreign policy, hasn't a clue as to what is going on or how to handle it. Obama's Administration has been so preoccupied with getting him elected (and golfing) that they have ignored their most important obligations in governing.

How Many Mulligans Do The Get?
In the last two days, we've had President Obama denying that Egypt is an ally then "restating" his original comments in a spectacularly "fence-sitting" fashion . . . MULLIGAN?
We've had the initial statement released by the US Embassy in Egypt apologizing to Muslims everywhere for our freedom of speech prior to the attacks, then the State Department doubling down on that same statement AFTER THE KILLINGS. Then we have the White House disavowing that same statement AFTER IT WAS CRITICIZED BY MITT ROMNEY and then issuing a statement denouncing the attacks and raising their collective noses in the air in feigned umbrage at being criticized by Romney . . . MULLIGAN?
Now we've had Jay Carney reverse himself--in less than an hour--in another pathetic attempt to cover up for White House lies . . . MULLIGAN?
Every time this President takes action or speaks out, it seems like he's taking another MULLIGAN.
Hey, Mr. President,fundraising, partying, and campaigning while American citizens who look to you for protection are dying isn't very "presidential," it looks cold and uncaring--you know, it exposes the truth about you.
Being President ISN'T LIKE BEING A GOLF PRO, Mr. Obama--you don't get to take a mulligan when the people you are sworn to protect and defend DIE THROUGH YOUR NEGLECT AND INCOMPETENCE.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
