Obama comparing his campaign volunteers to embassy staff shouldn't surprise anyone: never let a crisis go to waste.—

Four Americans were savagely murdered in an attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya. As Twitchy reported, Obama complained to a cheering Vegas crowd that it was a “tough day” for him. The poor dear. But that wasn’t the worst of his Vegas pandermonium.
During an utterly shameful, disgraceful speech to campaign volunteers, Obama dialed the classless, self-absorbed politicking up to 11 by exploiting the deaths in Libya for a revolting comparison.
“And obviously [our] hearts are broken for the families but I wanted to encourage those folks at the State Dept. that they were making a difference,” Obama told volunteer leaders in Las Vegas, according to the pool report. “The sacrifices that our troops and our diplomats make are obviously very different from the challenges that we face here domestically but like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than we’re doing….I’m just really proud of you.”
The sacrifices made by dead embassy staffers are “obviously very different,” and yet totally deserving of a comparison.
Disgusting. And this from a man who had the nerve to accuse Mitt Romney of playing politics with the embassy attacks.
I think most Americans, Democrats or Republicans, understand that there are times when we set politics aside, and one of those is when we’ve got a direct threat to American personnel overseas.
After the Washington Examiner reported Obama’s remarks, the Twitterverse let him know that what happens in Vegas most definitely does not stay in Vegas.
This SOB can't make a comment about anything without making it about him. Unbelievable narcissism. #TCOT #TEAPARTY therightscoop.com/out-of-touch-o…—

November can’t come soon enough. Romney was right: President Obama is disgraceful.
