The more he tries to explain Benghazi, the worse it gets

- October 18th, 2012

A very interesting breakdown:

President Obama’s attempts to wriggle free from his own words and actions on Libya are making things worse.

American Crossroads, taking exception to Obama’s announcement last night that he really had declared Benghazi to be an act of terrorism, has sent out a memo, which reads:

The President clearly misled the American people with this claim, because if Obama’s Rose Garden speech was indeed the White House position, it did not inform any subsequent statement by the White House press office — and was even directly contradicted by his own spokesman several days later.

On September 20 — eight days after Obama claims to have called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” — Jay Carney affirmed to reporters that the White House had never called it “a terrorist attack.”

Do yourself a favour and go read the whole thing.

    Exactly Brigette…an act of terror has a very different meaning that a “terrorist attack”. It is interesting to watch CNN’s thinly veiled support for Brian Obama. The neglected to say he never responded to the last question by Candy at the last debate but focus and promote percieved gaffs by Romney. But the velvet tongued master can talk around the issues and many buy the snake oil. As Romaney pointed out, Brian failed on most of the campaign promises he made that got him elected 4 years ago and I strongly suspect he inspired many who never voted in the lives to cast a vote. I am not a fan of either candidates but have come to the realization that politics is all about the lesser of two evils.

    American Crossroads, founded by Karl Rove, is the Super PAC that fund raises with anonymous donors for the Republican party. Do yourself a favour Brigette and acquire a shred of journalistic integrity.
