Understand very clearly what President Obama said today. During his Presser with British Prime Minister Davide Cameron, he called the controversy over Benghazi a “sideshow:
“The whole issue of talking points, frankly, throughout this process has been a sideshow,” Obama said, adding: “Suddenly, three days ago, this gets spun up as if there’s something new to the story. There’s no there there.”
Obama again said Republican are playing politics with something that shouldn’t be political. He noted that Republicans have used the issue for fundraising, as the Post first reported Friday.
Obama noted that the e-mails published Friday had been released by the White House months ago and scoffed at the notion that there was any kind of cover-up.take our poll - story continues below
“The whole thing defies logic, and the fact that this thing keeps getting churned out quite frankly has a lot to do with political motivations,” Obama said.
He said diplomats shouldn’t be the subject of political gamesmanship.
“We dishonor them when we turn things like this into a political circus,” he said.
Despite the fact that there were brand new revelations during the committee hearings on Wednesday and ABC and the Weekly Standard on Friday, this President is trying to work the Progressive version of the Jedi mind trick on American voters. “These aren’t the scandals you are looking for.” It’s already been proven that voters were lied to…Americans aren’t that stupid. But with his comments today Barack Obama is calling Americans idiots…there is nothing here–the problem is we already found something there. The American people deserve the truth, but your President does not believe it so.
