What do you think Americans would say if they learned that while Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were fighting for their lives atop the US Consulate in Benghazi, that their President was on the phone with campaign donors, or prepping for his Las Vegas fundraiser the next day. Throughout all the hearings and testimony thus far, the one fact we do know is this, not one of “all the President’s men” (have a familiar ring) is willing to discuss or admit to where the President was or what he was doing in those critical hours that the Consulate was under attack.
In his interview today on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Dan Pfeiffer, Senior Advisor to the President for Strategy and Communications, said it was a “largely irrelevant fact” where the President was that night. Irrelevant. Really?
After watching Pfeiffer’s answers to the line of questioning from Wallace, and trying to turn the tables by using the term “offensive” to suggestions the President wasn’t involved, one tends to believe that wherever the President was and what he was doing during the Consulate attack, might be very damaging, bordering on egregious, if ever revealed.
Andrew McCarthy in his National Review article also raises the question of the 10:00pm phone call that Secretary of State Clinton had with the President, the call she referred to in her testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. It was most likely that phone call where the YouTube video was sanctioned.
As more information is forthcoming about the Benghazi and IRS scandals, despite the Administration’s efforts to bloviate the subject, “low information voters” are slowly but surely beginning to connect the dots. When the full force of Obamacare hits in 2014, Joe Biden may yet see his Presidential wish come true, earlier than expected.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It seems Donald Trump constantly re-tweeting white nationalists on Twitter has paid off.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES New Orleans has a habit, it seems, of being ignored by the press. At least, ignored when it comes to mass shootings. Or this case, attempted mass shooting. You may remember that, back in November, there was a mass shooting in the city which received virtually no national press. Now we have a story where not only did someone | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Hillary Clinton is the ultimate Washington DC insider. She has been there for over 20 years. She was a first lady. Then she was a Senator. Then she ran for President. Then she was a lousy secretary of state. Then she went and made tens of millions of dollars giving speeches thanks in large part to her status as | Read More »
