Where is Jay Carney, anyway?

>> This is a mess on multiple levels. The Obama administration failed to protect our people. They have failed to assess the growing threat of Al Qaeda. And the president and his advisers have been hiding the ball from voters to save their own political skins. All in all it’s a shabby performance. People should be fired, but perhaps the voters will take care of that.

So where is the president? He’s not come forward to explain any of this, although his vice president will be on the hot seat at the debate tomorrow night. After all, Jay Carney's dissembling, Susan Rice’s misleading TV appearances, and the president’s own assertions, including his Setpember 25 speech to the UN (“a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world”) have left an evidence trail a mile wide.

Whether incompetent or dishonest or a combination of the two, Obama needs to face the American people and be held accountable. And the media, both reporters and pundits, who have tried studiously to downplay or ignore a scandal that in a GOP administration would be compared to Watergate, have their chance to show they are more than apologists for a president whose stature is shrinking by the minute.

When you are a Democrat, things are different. Can you imagine this happening if Dubya was still the president? The MSM would be relentless in their reporting of this incident.

Perhaps the GOP shouldn't have cut funding for Embassy security.


Once again, the GOP is trying to blame Obama for their own mistakes.

That dog won't hunt. About $300 million was cut out of $2.1 billion, leaving about $1.8 billion. That's plenty of money to, say, move the marine detachment from Paris (which isn't exactly known as a dangerous, terrorist haven) to Benghazi (which, well, WAS a known terrorist haven). If this administration couldn't get the job done with $1.8 billion dollars, plenty of foreknowledge that Benghazi was dangerous and the Ambassador in Libya begging them to do it then that's 100% on them, period.

Some rocket scientist: Perhaps the GOP shouldn't have cut funding for Embassy security

Or if the Administration hadn't forced another embassy to get an electric charger for the electric car they'll drive 15 miles a week.

Mental illness, pure and simple, nothing is ever their fault. They screw up and always project blame.

The GOP controls one house of Congress, yet gets blamed for everything.

Grow up.
