The Obama administration’s four-week coverup of their responsibility for the murder of four Americans in Libya is falling apart, with even Dennis Kucinich questioning their failed policies, and Lame Stream Media icons like Bob Woodward of Watergate fame questioning their shifting stories about what happened. As much as the LSM would like to help them out, it’s impossible even for them to avoid the inconvenient facts. No one is surprised that a very cadaverous looking David Axelrod had no problem reciting their talking point that “no one wants to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi more than the President” (echoed on Sunday by other mouthpieces Robert Gibbs and former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm) with a straight face in response to a question from Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. After all, poised lying is an essential skill for all sleazy political operatives, and he’s one of the best. The difficulty is reconciling that statement with the fact that after four Americans were killed on the anniversary of 9/11 in one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East, the One jetted off to Vegas for a fundraiser. His tap dance around the question made it clear that Obama didn’t meet with his national security team before going to the campaign event. Priorities are priorities, after all. Liberal journalist Michael Hastings appears on MS-NBC, which I watch so you don’t have to, and expresses disgust over seeing the mother of one of the Seals killed in Benghazi tell Anderson Cooper that the White House doesn’t even return her calls.
As the story unravels, the finger pointing begins. Hillary Clinton, herself a participant in the coverup, is attempting to distance herself from it, as if becomes clear that Susan Rice, who four weeks ago appears on five Sunday shows to present a risible, and clearly untrue, account of what happened in Benghazi on 9/11/12, must have been acting on behalf of the Obama campaign. If I were able to ask a question at Tuesday’s Presidential Debate, which will be in a town hall format, it would be the following: “Did Susan Rice meet with anyone in the White House and/or with the Obama campaign before appearing on television on 9/16/12?”
During the live show, some in lively chat room suggested that this Benghazi mess is worse than Watergate, since “no one died in Watergate,” but is that really true? What about the killing fields of Cambodia? That blood is on the democrats’ hands, in my opinion.
Self-described lifelong democrat and former LSM member Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights, comes out, and not in the way that liberals like, but rather as a Romney voter, and faces a barrage of abuse from his (former) friends and even his wife. He realizes that liberal media bias is real.
Liberals squeal with delight over Joe Biden’s scripted “now you’re John Kennedy?” remark during last week’s VP debate, but that line perfectly illustrates the box the Obama campaign is in. They lose on substance.
Self-confessed “bed wetting liberal” Franklin Foer from the New Republic admits that the Obama campaign message appeals to “low information” voters who believe misleading slogans, and to him and his pals on the MS-NBC panel, that’s a good thing.
Guest, author and one of America’s leading commentators on legal issues, Adam Freedman, joined us to discuss his terrific new book, The Naked Constitution: What the Founders Said and Why it Matters.
