Obama Administration – Cowards on Benghazi

The Obama administration may go down as the worst Presidential administration in the history of our nation. It’s a very real possibility, no matter what the liberal media tries to tell us. It’s been over five years now, and the administration has basically travelled from one failure to another. Things are so bad that even their “victories” are losses. Obamacare? A train wreck of massive proportions. The war on terror? President Obama told us Al-Qaeda was all but defeated, which, after a spate of horrifyingly deadly attacks, to borrow from Mark Twain, “Reports of (their) demise has been greatly exaggerated.” The economy still lies in shambles with unemployment killing American families and inflation making life even more difficult for the middle class and poor. Sadly, things will get worse before they get better because we still haven’t felt the crushing economic implications of Obamacare yet.

Given all of that, you’d think that Jay Carney would welcome some “new” questions in his press briefings. Apparently not.

Jay Carney pulls the ultimate move in petulance, and simply walks out when the fire gets too hot.

The basic point of the exchange is this:

Back on September 10, 2012, the Obama administration said that they had everything under control. They met with all of the embassies that could have some problems, and made sure that they were all well defended and that support could reach them quickly if need be.

Then on September 11, 2012, Benghazi fell. The official administration story on that is that they just weren’t prepared.

There seems to be a colossal inconsistency here, and Jay Carney just doesn’t want to talk about it. I think the briefing might become the perfect analogy of the Obama administration though — an empty podium.  Remind anyone of Clint Eastwood’s famous empty chair speech? Hmmm… maybe he wasn’t that far off after all.
