Benghazi Explained by Jay Carney
"The Republicans are obsessed with Benghazi. Benghazi was a bump in the road. I mean, what difference does it make? Obama was asleep while he watched it unfold. It's the Republican's fault because they pushed for the Sequestration that Obama invented. Rush Limbaugh is a bad man. This is a FoxNews-created scandal extensively reported on by CBS. George W. Bush is to blame. It's a vast right wing conspiracy. The terrorists that did this were not committing an act of terror. We never once altered the talking points' twelve different versions. These talking points originated in the CIA that the White House authored. This was a spontaneous uprising caused by an offensive video that nobody ever saw. The Koch brothers are evil. We only made one adjustment - 'consulate' to 'diplomatic facility' -- among the hundreds of other adjustments. Mitch McConnell is a bad man. Newt Gingrich. If we do not count the Navy Seals that were ready to respond, the nearby fighter aircraft and the Specter gunship circling overhead, there were no assents we could have responded with. Why are Republicans such fringers? Mitt Romney caused the entire Benghazi tragedy. Just because Barack Obama is the only person that could order the assets to stand down, doesn't mean someone else didn't do it. It's too soon after these tragic events, besides, it was a really long time ago. This breaking series of events that happened Friday is old news. Why are you attacking Hillary? It's because you hate women, isn't it?"
