The entire summer of 1974 I was furious.  Every time my family turned on the television, either that sad hound dog-looking president Richard Nixon cut into an episode of Bewitched or that boring old newsman Walter Cronkite was interrupting The Brady Bunch.  No matter which of my favorite television programs I watched, someone (boring) would take over to drone on and on about politics.

The reason for all the television hogging was because, in a nutshell, some people broke into an office.

Of course that office belonged to the Democratic National Committee—and their headquarters were located in the infamous Watergate Hotel.  Some important papers were stolen and President Nixon lied and tried to cover up/deny the whole thing.  Back in 1974, if Nixon even SNEEZED they would interrupt I Dream of Jeanie to tell the world about it.

The final straw was when my parents made my sister and me come inside on a perfect summer day to watch that sad president resign.

“This is history and you need to pay attention!” my mom demanded.  So we impatiently sat in front of the TV and watched as President Richard Millhouse Nixon gave his famous resignation speech:

“I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of America first… Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President Ford will be sworn in as President at that hour in this office.”

Flash forward to 2012, Benghazi. So far, I haven’t seen even ONE network program interrupted with breaking news about the murders of our Americans in Libya.

Not ONCE have I seen ABC disrupt an episode of Dancing With the Stars to give you the latest news about Obama knowing more than he admitted about the attack.

There were no interruptions during America’s Got Talent when Lt. Col. Shaffer said of President Obama, “He, only he, could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something. That’s the only place it could be done.”

No one interrupted Survivor when Col. David Hunt announced on Fox News, “The military could have had jets on the scene within 20 minutes and special forces on the ground, including a contingent of Delta Force, within two hours” and when asked why Obama wouldn’t send help, Col. Hunt said, “The issue is always political with the White House, but the secretary of defense gives the order, has to be approved by the White House, they wouldn’t pull the trigger, and it’s disgraceful.”

Modern Family got a free pass when as recently as Friday Barack Obama continued to say he was “not personally aware” of any requests for additional security—yet sources are now coming out saying that not only did he know, he was watching real-time as our Americans were brutally tortured and murdered.  Col. Hunt said, “The entire U.S. government was paying attention” since this was the fourth embassy to have been attacked in a 24-hour period.

“According to my sources,” Lt. Col. Shaffer told Fox News, “yes, [President Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this.”

Networks:  Crickets.  

Even right this moment as I type this, the lead story on NBC is about—-the weather.  Yes, the storms headed toward New York are intense—but you’d think NBC might consider it worth mentioning that retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer is insinuating that Barack Obama and his entire administration have been LYING about the massacre of Americans in Benghazi.  Other than Fox News and Conservative radio/Internet sites, nothing.  Not a peep.

So don’t worry, folks; your Honey Boo Boo is safe.  None of her thought-provoking episodes will even briefly be interrupted to alert you of the lies and misdirection of the Barack Hussein Obama administration.  And you’ll still be able to see your usual gossip about Snookie and Lindsay Lohan without any distractions about our murdered Americans.

Maybe if Barack had sent some of his goons to break into an office in Washington and steal some papers people might pay attention, right?

Yeah.  I know.

    Well it’s no surprise. Honey Boo-boo I believe has endorsed the Imam after learning that Mitt liked Snookie better.

  2. Lainie Sloane, CA PoltiChick says:

    Love this article Ann-Marie!!! Remember the events well.

    If I were to name the hurricane I see coming it would be Hurricane Obamagone. We the people have had enough. Not only does the garbage that has destroyed America for the past 4 years need to go, there needs to be a new media raise to life. One that knows what news is, one that is honest. Todays Media with few exceptions, Politichicks being one, is nothing more than an extension of Hollywoods effort to rewrite American history with well placed fantasy. Perhaps a show should be spawned called Where in the World is Carmen San Obama. See if we can find him in Vegas the when he should have been in the situation room, or perhaps on Jay Leno when he should have been before the press corps and thats sounded core not corpse Mr Wonderful. Or maybe we could find him as eye candy on the View with the post menapause and still angry crowd. If Watergate were enough to get Nixon removed, Bengazigate shoud remove the President, VP, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, the CIA director and probaby a dozen more. Ann Marie thank you for your honest and clear journalism. God bless you

    • Thank you, Jack. Some articles are easier to write than others, especially maddening ones like this one ;-)

      • Pastor Jack Martin says:

        Few things make me as mad at the Bengazi situation. I posted on my facebook page the link to Fox story on all the calls for aid that were ignored. To me thats treason, its muder, its cowardly. I may be the only one who feels this way but it almost seems to me as if the president could have been in on the whole situation. I know that sounds crazy, but if his apparent affection for Islam and the Muslim brotherhood are real, and if Ambassador Stevens was helping assemble the less radical portions of Libyians he may have posed a hinderence to Obamas effort to let the Islamic Brotherhood have all of the middle east. I see as hypocracy his claims to care about Israel. He has snubbed, and sold out Israel at every turn in the road. I almost feel like his speach in Egypt was almost like when Al Qaeda leadership goes on TV or radio with coded message. Let me just say when time comes where this is played out before the Lord I am quite confident something very synister will be revealed. And I hope its now not later. He should be impeached. Ok stepping off my soap box. You keep wriiting as you are, and encouraging Americans all over. My prayers are for you and your family.

        • I agree, Jack. The more I’m learning, the angrier I’m getting at the COMPLETE lack of coverage by the media. I know I should never expect anything from them–but is there literally no HUMANITY left inside “news” rooms? Have they all turned into heartless robots, thinking this is ‘war’ and the casualties are a necessary part of their agenda?

    How in the world did it ever happen??? I mean, How did the woman you are today ever evolve from the airhead you were as a youngster? And, isn’t it wonderful that wooley worms and caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflys? Praise him above for the transformation.
