Today on CNN, Obama deputy campaign manager and serial liar Stephanie Cutter was shown a devastating montage of the administration’s mixed messages on the situation in Benghazi, Libya. She promptly said that the “only reason” that the murder of the US ambassador in Benghazi, Libya had become a political issue is “because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. It’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.”
Only after being forced by CNN reporter to admit that it’s a national security issue did Cutter do so. Then she began nodding as the reporter stated that the American public has a right to answers.
This is the absurdity of the Obama administration position on Libya. It was they who politicized the murder of our ambassador by (1) failing to provide adequate security for him in Libya, and (2) lying about the actual circumstances surrounding the murder, blaming it on a YouTube video even though it was a full-fledged terrorist attack.
As usual, the Obama team is focused only on casting blame elsewhere. That’s been the biggest problem with Barack Obama’s candidacy. And that irresponsibility has cost lives.
