    He meant to say "under the rug" not in the road

    I loath Obama, and his handling of foreign policy with regard to the Muslim world has been disastrous. But this piece takes him out of context. Obama was not reducing the loss of American lives in Libya to "bumps in the road". He was talking about the inevitable troubles along the path from authoritarianism to democracy in the so-called Arab Spring. It wasn't his intent to diminish the cost of blood and treasure.

    So, that's your motive. I was wondering if you even had one.

    Actually, after viewing the entire 60 Minutes interview, I see that Obama's "bumps-in-the-road" comment, as well as other comments, in the fuller context comes off as clumsy and lazy, insensitive and clueless. This is very embarassing for him.
