I present Obama's job approval rating stands about 48% would go down after the -- -- hearing this week to a seven loss -- Texas -- roll.
This is a story to media and I'm right on top of the story because -- not only report to bank Gaza story and have been pretty fair about doing that since it happened.
But I also see the ratings television ratings -- come -- after we reported.
And we do minute by minute ratings -- the facts we know everybody who's watching it every time and what their interest that it.
This story really hasn't grabbed the American public yet or am -- wrong.
-- I think you're right I mean it's what people are trying to figure it out.
And into the degree that they figured it out it's not particularly.
A favorable towards administration and the people who are concerned about the presidents and the administration's handling this.
From a negative perspective feel more strongly about it to -- to applaud what he did but.
But as you're right it has at this point it hasn't yet begun to bite it might this week given the testimony were buried here.
It has to be very strong though it has to involve Hillary Clinton -- President Obama.
If it involves unnamed people at the State Department -- I told XY this and that's right.
Then it just goes away he's got to get it it's -- same -- -- would Watergate -- Watergate started to hit Haldeman and Ehrlichman.
Nixon's big guns right up there and -- Nixon started to literally sweat about it then everybody -- folks start to pay attention.
But if it's -- being wishy washy in the hearing on Wednesday and believe me the Democrats are gonna try to make it such.
Now we'll look a couple of things first of all I think your right to do their needs to be more to -- than we've seen thus far there's a lot here.
There's an excellent piece out by Stephen Hayes of the weekly standard the draws his for the first time right into the White House on the afternoon of the fourteenth of September Friday afternoon at about 652 -- need.
Early evening they send out a draft talking points have been really finalized just before noon earlier that day at the CIA.
And they're sent out in and literally within forty minutes the spokesman at the State Department Victorian England says -- are unacceptable and later that night.
Ben Rhodes the National Security Council communications chief says in an email we're gonna decide what these are anti White House meeting on Saturday morning and on Saturday morning.
There's a meeting at the White House we don't know who's in have a we have a sense of who might have been and it.
And -- -- talking points in in that meeting they have this -- the talking points remove all references to Islamic extremists.
-- the warnings of the CIA element on the tenth of September.
About -- about there being potential is -- they remove all of the of references to the wide availability of a weapons and fighters in eastern.
-- -- they remove the reference to the CIA warnings about Al qaeda's activities in Libya and the five tax earlier that.
That year on now on western installations and western personnel that's all removed and it happens in a White House meeting.
Probably -- the situation room may be in the office of national security advisor.
On Saturday so do we know whether the president -- -- residents we do we know -- whether he was in restaurants that -- -- where they was -- -- and he's feet.
Now he's in the White House I believe on that day but look we already know something about the president that has not stirred up much controversy but to me is just incredible.
We know from -- sworn testimony in front of congress by secretary of defense norm I should be Leon Panetta.
Evan -- comments by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
At 408 eastern time on September 12 the embassy reports and it's under attack at 5 o'clock eastern time.
Panetta and the joint the chairman of the joint chiefs still present Obama in his office.
That the embassy the facilities under attack this repeated at 60 wait there's a second message about it.
And end of relay that that the al-Qaeda affiliate Libya's claiming credit for -- between 5 o'clock.
That's the last contact the Defense Department has with the White House over this issue for the rest of the evening the president is next briefed on -- apparently the next -- so the president is.
It didn't you don't normally in a situation like this the situation room would get spun up.
They're being secure video link between hit the Defense Department the State Department -- -- consultation between the officials the president would be briefed on a periodic basis but instead they tell president.
Then -- facility is under attack and he basically says well great I'll talk to you tomorrow and end this to me is just appalling and we know this now for several months.
And there's been no attention not on -- by the by the mainstream media -- -- and it just it's shocking to me but that -- You know that the -- United States -- Palin and Hillary Clinton will present on our facility in Hillary Clinton as secretary of -- was inning -- either on that day when she.
Well Ed it will hear a -- and on and on Wednesday apparently.
The the deputy operations chief for the counterterrorism office of the secretary at the State Department says she was engaged.
To -- to the -- of freezing out the guys inside the media inside the State Department whose responsibility it should be respond to a terrorist attack.
-- I could've been our just the -- I mean during that during that thing when -- went down we know what was going on the White House.
We still don't know where Hillary Clinton was because of that terrible testimony that she gave in front.
Congressman they didn't even ask -- anything.
And that's what I'm worried about on Wednesday word in the sense that I think the American people deserve the truth here would like to know what happened.
I think we had a number of opportunities Mitt Romney had an opportunity to -- a third -- he blew it a 100% of cost -- the election in my opinion.
And I hope we we got to get to the bottom of this thing I mr.
-- thank send.
