“We have no capability to rescue Americans”…. but I still won’t take questions from the media and i’m going back on vacation!

August 20, 2021

Benghazi redux

….”the demands of the office appear to be too much for the 78-year-old president. Vacation time would seem to be what’s called for. But there’s a problem: By the time the president is rested and refreshed, the world will have been turned upside down”.

*Come on folks even if you voted for him be truthful and think back to when he is making a speech, (aka reading of the teleprompter), he looks totally lost, and un-animated like a man on drugs just doing what he is told.

In all of history only a few national leaders have made their country look this and weak and inept but here we are akin to the fall of Rome, where Caesar played his violin and Rome burned down around him, we have a President who appears to be afraid to take questions from the press pool because he knows he will quickly flounder so he goes back on vacation while Americans are trapped behind enemy lines and he hopes ‘someone’ will figure out how to resolve the situation.

Yes he did come back from vacation, days after the Americans were trapped and told to “shelter in place”. He held what was labeled as a press conference that was touted in advance to be about the rescue of Americans stuck behind enemy lines, I call it a Presidential address because he took not one question from the pool of reporters. So did his ‘address’ speak to how he would fix the crisis…NO because his address was limited to information about COVID and the third injection of the vaccine and not on the situation in Afghanistan.

It was once again smoke and mirrors, getting you to look over here and not over there at something he can’t handle. Just like yesterday’s news where he is focusing on passing a bill having all school children ware mask’s and no new actions to save trapped Americans. I think maybe now those who voted for him over Trump are realizing what a mistake that was.

We have a president

that just can’t handle stress

and has thousands

of

Americans

in harms way

and he keeps running away

without doing anything

to save them

***UPDATE…the blog was started on Monday and this paragraph list actions taken since then.

A short while ago after almost a week since Kabul fell to the Taliban President Biden held a press conference, where he was flanked by the vice-President and Secretary-of-State and spoke of the progress to get Americans and Afghan supporters out of the country.

    But let’s not forget who put the wheels in motion for this to all take place.

      I’ll bite, who?

      For me, it doesn’t matter actually. We need to stop the political positions and look strictly at the actions of who is in charge because truly, that’s the issue.

      If the decision was to pull out it simply was done poorly. To play that off on someone else doesn’t make sense to me given the Biden administration hasn’t been playing the blame game, so why would we?

      He had plenty of time to pull this off better, and failed to utilize good intel on the ground. Stupid, and pompous. When reporters, an extension of the citizenry, cannot ask direct questions they are left to fill in those gaps with their own beliefs. Acting in secrecy begets distrust. Try it with your spouse, and when she’s getting irked over not getting answers take off to not be available.

      I don’t need to see dogshit to know I’ve stepped in some. 💩

        TBG as in my response to Michael all Biden had to do was follow the guidelines that Trump already established with the Taliban and we would not have the situation we have today. (FYI… you think the Chinese aren’t keeping a close eye on what is happening with Afghanistan… and seeing Biden just cut and run may give them the courage to act on the takeover of Taiwan.

      I agree Michael that it was indeed President Trump who laid the groundwork for the US pull-out but do you remember it was laid out in steps and had conditions the Taliban must comply with or the US would stop any withdrawal. Also if you remember for the last year that President Trump was in office the Taliban and the Afghan government held the areas they controlled without any major fighting and Trump did this with less than 3,000 troops in country.

    To add to your blog, the q&a during the scripted press conference today where the reporter asked a question that was not on Biden’s list of pre-approved questions and answers.
    Biden looks around at Harris and Blinken in his crack (no pun intended) administration for a way out of this one.
    I’d wager that reporter won’t be back again.
    Now we’ve handed the Taliban an arsenal of free weapons to wage their terrorism not to mention a complete breakdown in trust with our allies.
