Embassy alerts just a ruse

August 6, 2013 

Call me a cynic, if you will, but I am very cynical about the recent announcing of the closing of embassies in the Muslim world and a travel alert.

Obama has been going all over and trying to deflect the public's attention away from what he has dubbed "phony scandals" by giving speeches on his fixing the economy (what a joke).

Now that hasn't succeeded in deflecting from the real scandals of spying on the American public, Benghazi failure, targeting the tea party and other conservative groups by the IRS, the weak response to a whistle blower who did a public service: He has now had a "phony" world-wide alert of travel dangers and embassy closings.

Maybe I'm not a cynic, just truthful.
