This has been eating at me ever since Obama said it, back in October of 2012.
But before you watch it, do me a favor: don’t focus just on WHAT he says here, but also on HOW he says it. He is very deliberate. Haughty. Self-righteous. Barack was “in high dudgeon”, as a relative of mine used to say.
And despite all that, he was also lying through his expensively whitened teeth:
“The suggestion that anybody in my team — whether the secretary of state, our UN ambassador, anybody on my team — would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive,” Obama said.
“That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as president. That’s not what I do as commander-in-chief.”
Gosh, I’m so sorry if that offends you…
