My suggestion to the President: if you’re gonna tell an obvious lie, practice in front of a mirror first, …’cause this one doesn’t begin to pass the ‘guffaw’ test:
OBAMA: “…I’m not familiar with this notion that anybody’s been blocked from testifying. So what I’ll do is find out what exactly you’re referring to…”
Okay, a quick poll: everyone who believes that the President of the United States has no idea what this reporter is talking about, say ‘Yay‘…
Of course, he could maintain that he only knows what he hears in the Network press. Given that his BFF’s in the media are attempting a complete blackout on this subject, that would make a modicum of sense.
But this isn’t Joe Six-pack we’re talking about: it’s the Most Powerful Man On The Planet. Plus, Fox News and the Conservative blogosphere has been covering this daily, with Fox, HotAir, and others specifically broadcasting the revelations by Victoria Toensing:
(FOXNEWS) – At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.
Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”
We are now truly in ‘Watergate’-type waters, where the mounting evidence of a cover-up is becoming the Mastodon in the room. Charles Krauthammer summed it up perfectly and pithily:
And when President ‘Smart Power’ stands in front of the American people and offers the most amateurish of fibs, you know that it’s now not a matter of IF this is all going to come out, but merely WHEN.
So, on the off-chance that you haven’t seen this interview with Victoria Toensing on Fox, I’ll include it below. While you watch, remind yourself that Benghazi resulted in 4 Americans dying, at the hands of hostile Islamist forces, in one of the most dangerous parts of the world, on 9/11. And also keep in mind that he and his Administration lied about it for days, and now are accused of threatening potential witnesses to remain silent or face legal and/or career-ending repercussions.
But we’re supposed to believe that Obama isn’t keeping tabs on this? Dude, puh-lease….
