Wow!! Talk about a tone-deaf White House. Apparently nobody realized the dissonance that can be created. But I guess it's harder and harder to pen trite, banal phrases bereft of any semblance of the truth.
Obama, 9/16/2012: As the remains of the 4 Americans killed at Benghazi returned home:
"...We will bring to justice those who took them from us....."
Obama, 9/16/2013: comments made while events were still unfolding at the Navy Yard:
"...We will do everything in our power to see that whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible...."
Possibly the interns are recycling, er...writing the speeches these days.
