Obama: “It’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts”

What a gigantic pair this guy’s got. But he gets away with it because his palace guard doesn’t dare question him. I question the timing, though. Just yesterday he had no use for the media, except for the Pimp With a Limp. All of a sudden, he’s granting interviews to 60 Minutes. Nothing like your foreign policy collapsing to snap you to attention.

President Obama offered a blistering critique of his Republican challenger Wednesday, questioning Mitt Romney’s judgment after the GOP nominee criticized the administration’s initial response to violence in the Middle East that culminated in the killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

Obama said his opponent had “a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” and he suggested it was unbecoming for someone seeking the nation’s highest office.

“There’s a broader lesson to be learned here,” Obama told CBS News. “And I think — you know, Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as president, one of the things I’ve learned is you can’t do that. That, you know, it’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts. And that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make ’em.”

What a feckless PoS.

Yeah, it’s a good idea to get your facts straight before you talk, champ.

And As Drudge reminds us, maybe you should start getting a clue.

    Romney does an excellent job of getting under this guy’s skin. He’s pretty much living rent-free in O’s frontal lobe.

    Isn’t this the asshole that as a candidate talked about “bombing villages and stuff”?

    Except, of course, as President, Mr. Obama has NOT learned to get facts before issuing statements. Or policies, for that matter.

    Sure, just like you never did when Henry Gates, Jr got arrested. Or when Saint Travon got shot. Or when Nadal went on his shooting spree. Or…hell, there are too many to list so shut up!
