Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert blasts John McCain’s ‘disgraceful Benghazi campaign’

Well, at least we know now why Sen. John McCain is waging his “singularly disgraceful Benghazi campaign.” He’s a has-been who’s still bitter about losing to Barack Obama in the 2008 race for president. So, what’s the excuse for all of you asking questions about Benghazi who didn’t lose to Obama in the 2008 campaign? Racism, probably.

The mainstream media finally seems to have taken an interest in the Benghazi story, the same night that unnamed intelligence officials have provided yet another revised timeline — one that seems to satisfy all of the questions “real journalists” have while ignoring the silly ones, like where the administration got that “blame the video” and jail the filmmaker story.

Boehlert’s Twitter followers seem to buy his theory about McCain.

Can’t McCain just get over it and get in line with the rest of the legislature (with a few exceptions) and stop asking questions about Benghazi? At least until next Wednesday?

    This idiot is from Media Matters meaning he doesn’t matter.

    Shameful. I don’t agree with all of McCain’s policies and opinions but these comments are insulting to all POW’s. It may have been decades since McCain was a “guest’ at the Hanoi Hilton. To make comments like he hasn’t gotten over losing to Obama because you do not like his opinion or his asking questions of the President about the murder of 4 Americans working for the government at the time of their deaths is not asking much. He is not the only one who wants to know. Obama just needs to tell the truth and come clean.

      No way can Obama come clean on this one, he may as well have pulled the trigger himself, their blood is on his hands. McCain & every American have the right to ask, “where were you Mr. President?”

    Whew, I thought maybe I was supposed to know who Eric Boehlert was, but that’s work that Michelle and the crew do so that I don’t have to. Kind of like how reporting on Benghazi is left up to those on our side since the MSM has ceded their duties. And Eric, if you’re out there, shouldn’t we tell the families of the four dead Americans to suck it up and quit grieving like a bunch of “disgraceful” pansies?

    funny, how they loved him when he was challenging bush….i guess he’s no longer the “maverick” anymore

    God bless John McCain. McCain loves the USA and put his life on the line serving our country. Have YOU done that? McCain has no political motive for speaking out about injustice and murder. However, the Obama camp has political motives for not telling the truth to the American people. Thank God for military people like McCain and the Kansas senator Pat Roberts and others who are speaking up about this Benghazi disgrace. I’m amazed there are still people who are willing to serve in the military after the past four years of White House debauchery and world-wide failure. It is an embarrassment.

    Media Matters is so far to the left that they make President Obama look conservative and thats hard to do so dont listen to that organization if you want honest reporting and comentating.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    It’s just the lefts way of dealing with issues. First, lie. Next, when that starts falling apart, tell a bigger lie and repeat. Lastly, call names and try to belittle the opposition. I’m possitive you’ll find this in The Liberal Handbook or ‘Winning For Dummies’.

    For the sake of God leave Obama alone, He told us what happened it was a spontaneous attack on the anniversary of 9/11 provoked by a YouTube movie that no one ever saw, at least till he brought it up. Disgusting how the right wing try’s to portray the most ethical president ever.

      either you’re an absolutely brilliant humorist, or you have not one clue and are just another one of those pathetic little numnuts on the obozo bandwagon…

  • mary438

    I didn’t know who Eric Boehlert was either, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is so wrong. I applaud McCain for asking all the questions the MSM should have been asking.

  • Owen007

    What’s disgraceful is the way Obama supporters try to brush four deaths under the rug and the way Team Obama played hot potato with blame. It’s not McCain’s fault that Obama and company screwed up.

  • Gallatin

    Question, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty rescued 30 + people from the consulate compound, why haven’t we seen any of these individuals interviewed?

  • Gallatin

    eric boelert—Benghazi Matters—-you don’t.

  • rightbrain

    Does anyone else notice George Soros’ lips move when Eric Boehlert talks?

  • Matt

    Its similar to that idiot ex-Seinfeld start claiming that “right wing” sites aren’t reliable on Bengazhi, when ” right wing sites” are the only ones reporting on it up until a few days ago. Gee, I wonder why. Its like when a lefty argues with me about something and then links to something on the White House website and calls that “fact”.

  • TocksNedlog

    Yeah well, there’s the disgusting Benghazi thing and the disgusting Fast & Furious thing and the disgusting strong-arm the Catholic Church into violating their principles thing and …

    Not to side with the libs by any means, but the “get off my lawn” tweet is pretty funny…

    “Can someone PLEASE tell McCain the 2008 election has been over for some time. Palin’s moved onto reality TV, so should he.”

    Sure, if someone tells Obama Bush hasn’t been in office since 2008…I hope Obama gets to continue his celebrety after 1/20/2013, only this time, not in AF1.
