I agree except for the bold. They do not ever sit back and wait.
Obama's is offense oriented administration, they do not wait to be attacked. Obama strutted into the Oval Office gloating over his divisive "Guns and Bibles" comment and immediately labelled all Republicans "enemies".
That, in anyone's book is not a Reagan nor Clintonesque move to get things done, but a declaration of war which has now been waged for seven harsh years.
The first response of the Obama administration is to diminish of not dismiss, "I saw it on TV", and then to ridicule and sneer. How many times did we see that little worm of a press secretary sneering at reporter's questions, dismissing issues as "old news", which by the way does not exist...not in Obamaland as the next step in any issue is to rewrite history, blame Bush/Romney/Palin/McCain/Herman Cain/Bush or Ronald Reagan; if not blame then to remind Americans that Republicans are imperfect, a distraction from the fact they are admitting Obama is no better than their worst.
Amid that, you have personal attacks as in Republican Senators are clowns BECAUSE they want to know what's behind the IRS spying on Republicans. Then you have character assassination, attacking the messenger, undermining any probe with deflective irrelevancies such as "a spontaneous demonstration over a tape made ridiculing the prophet Mohamed...in tones that makes that wrong. Now forgetting they have trampled on the first amendment, we have to see that for what it is. A gross lie. And, if anywhere near correct, is an example of the incompetence of the American Intelligence community on which the nation relies to keep them safe.
Four Americans died, nine were injured, and the debate they have is that it's old news, Hillary is clean...trying so far, successfully, to divert attention that the Obama White House has not brought those Islamic terrorists to justice, that a mob of several dozen Islamic fanatics roam the middle east bragging they drew blood off "the great Satan" and lived to tell about it. What Americans need to focus on is not Obama and his minions and their incredible lies, but that. Each one of those Islamic blood sucker murderers represents a hundred, at least, new recruits to Islamic terror that wants to destroy the American way of life.
