Leave it to Obama to inadvertently state the truth. The wide-spread anti-American riots, including the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, are mere “bumps in the road.”
The unfortunate image I got on hearing these words (from “60 Minutes” via Fox) was of the corpse of Ambassador Chris Stevens being run over, repeatedly, by trucks driven by Islamists.
That’s not how he died, of course: he was dragged through the streets after he was murdered, or may even have died during that dragging. Close enough to being a “bump in the road.”
Here’s what the Muslim sympathizer who happens to be our president had to say about the Islamic violence around the world:
But I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because, you know, in a lot of these places the one organizing principle has been Islam.
Things do, indeed, go bump in the night. And it’s nice to know that Obama thinks that such violence is the “one organizing principle” of that is Islam.
Probably not what he intended; it wasn’t the usual apology for something America might have done wrong, some perceived or offense.
