Irony: In Wake of Libya Debacle, Obama Says 'We Leave Nobody Behind' During Hurricane Presser

"whenever an American is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we’re providing the help that's necessary"

On Tuesday we pointed out the president coincidentally using his campaign slogan during a media session on Hurricane Sandy (the slogan is also that of MSNBC and FEMA of late), but there's another gem from that same press conference that's worth noting.

While explaining the resilience of the American spirit and the rescue efforts, Obama assured all Americans that "we leave nobody behind." That's ironic, considering the administration's latest entanglement revolves on someone within the administration (and now maybe the White House) denying requests for backup during the Libya attack.

"But America is tougher, and we’re tougher because we pull together," Obama said while at Red Cross headquarters. "We leave nobody behind.  We make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an American is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we’re providing the help that's necessary."
