Ben-whatzi? Obama dodges Benghazi whistleblowers question, says he’ll totally ‘find out’ what’s up [video]

President Obama’s presser kicked off a bit late Tuesday morning, but Fox News’ Ed Henry was at the ready with a question about the reported silencing of Benghazi whistleblowers.

As predicted by the prescient Twitterverse, Benghazi-related questions are among those Obama won’t really answer. He just batted his eyelashes and played dumb.

But don’t you worry. Let him be clear: President Obama is totally on it and will “find out” what this is all about. Serious You Guys!

To be fair, the president has had his hands full.

    Hey, the snooze media asked a couple questions about Benghazi. Progress! >>

    • Kelly Layne

      No that was fox new’s question not anyone from the MSM

  • Ben Bollman

    Shorter Obama: “Look! Squirrel!”

    • tops116

      Squirrel: “Hey, this isn’t about me. It’s about you.”

    • CR

      Close. More like “Look! GAY squirrel!”

  • rivers

    Priorities. Informed about the sexuality of NBA player that no one has heard of, not about Benghazi. Solution, put Benghazi on the cover of Sports Illustrated or ESPN. He’s familiar with those mediums, boring govt. stuff not so much.

    • grais

      “How much time do we have left?” (looks at watch) “Last question.”

      (asked; answered)

      ‘Oh, and I have time for one more nationally important question, as long as it’s about Jason Collins.’

      • angeleyez

        Obama channeled Sergeant Schulltz during the Benghazi question.

        • dinkerduo

          I KNOW NOTHING—-Love it!

          • Jason Call

            Time-honored, oft-quoted by all autocrats, real and fictitious.

          • dinkerduo

            I never missed an episode—they don’t make them like that anymore!
            Sad thing—this Adm. issues orders then when called on them they deny ANY knowledge of them and it happens every time!
            Would like to see a reporter call him a liar–to his face–and see how he stutters!

            I’m afraid that the F&F guns that went to Mexico went to an al Qaeda cell(s) that are already there! It happened for a reason and the one they gave just doesn’t quite add up—give 2500 assault weapons to drug cartels TO TRACK THEM?!? THEY COULD HAVE DONE THAT WITH 20 GUNS NOT 2500!!!

  • Legal Immigrant in TX

    If the involved were gay and abortionists then he would be on top of it.

    • Lisa

      This is so true. The events of late have exposed the Obama lack of understanding on priorities. When Collins gets a phone call but Benghazi whistle blowers are ignored we have a problem!

      • mdtljt

        He didn’t have the stones to answer the call when it was happening…why would he give a mouse fart in a high wind now???

    • trixiewoobeans

      As long as the abortionist isn’t Kermit Gosnell!

    • Daniel Simon

      You are so right, but the jokes on the gay community because Muslims eliminate infidels and aren’t tolerant of homosexuality and they are normally eliminated from society under Sharia law, stoned to death I believe. So supporting Obama and his agenda likely will result in conditions far worse than anything they’ve experienced thus far.

  • grais

    Right…and he didn’t inhale.

    What he was “clear about” at the beginning was that Americans were killed in Benghazi because someone made a shit-video mocking Islam.

  • Nicholas DiNubile MD

    Surprised 2nd Presidential debate moderater #CandyCrowley wasn’t there to help him through #benghazi questions again ; ) – & today is Nat’l Honesty Day!

    • Clayton Grant

      The flag should be flown at half staff over the WH in remembrance of National Honesty Day.

      • JustLikeAnimals

        The one day out of the year that he’s required to be honest and he blew it. Epic fail (again and again).

      • bizinana

        a black mourning flag.

  • mickeyco

    I didn’t watch it- I gag when I try to listen to him. But how in heaven’s name did Ed Henry get a chance to ask a question?

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Today’s Ed’s last day as White House Press Association President. It was his honor.

      • mickeyco


  • RblDiver

    “Maybe I should just pack up and go home. Golly.” YES PLEASE!

    • Spatial Awareness

      -Make that Shitcago & DO IT! NOW!

    • Judy B

      How quick can Twitchy raise the funds for a moving van & where do I send my check?

      • stellatruman

        I will sell a kidney

      • Keri Green

        Oh Judy, You made me crack up over that line. I’m with ya, I sell everything I own to help out!!

  • Republicanvet

    What a disgraceful buffoon. You better damn well get familiar! You’ve only had 7+ months!

  • HARP2

    Or in other words…….what difference does it make.

  • Walt

    All he had to say was “I’m not familiar with the Benghazi witness being intimated to come forward, so I’ll just issue this order, let’s bring them to the press conference right now. Get em out here and let’s get this cleared up.” That would have been a good answer.

    • Kelly Layne

      they fear for their lives

    • Eric Phillips

      I agree, time is now to PRESS! Call a new conference and blast him with questions. And NO wiggle room!

  • Andy Rigo

    That’s OK. He’s not familiar with the truth, either.

  • yourmamatoo

    Well,he hasn’t found out anything as of yet,all the things he said he would find out about. And still the press just lets him slide.

  • David

    “Obama – The Man Who Knew Nothing”

    Playing soon at a theater near you.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Hussein knowing nothing has been a pretty consistent theme since his ‘administration’ began.

      • dinkerduo

        That’s been showing for 4+ years now—where you been man!?!

    • Judy B

      There’s a country song in there somewhere!

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Watching when he said that. It sounded reminiscently like “I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.”

  • Wright

    Maybe someone should just ask him about his golf game. I’m sure they would get more info.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    The rest of those who where in Benghazi and know the truth need to get lawyers and tell them everything now. Get your involvement and knowledge documented before people start waking up dead on park benches in D.C.

    • dinkerduo

      Or being found in a park—shot in the back of the head—suicide of course!

    • johnshroeder

      An attorney with a top secret clearance was denied approval to rep a whistleblower by State Dept.

    • plumberskid

      That’s the point. One of them has an attorney, but she hasn’t been given permission to speak to him, even though she has security clearance. I would guess the same is true of the other 3 whistleblowers.

  • Tanker74

    The four Americans murdered in Benghazi could have been saved by a strike force of gay basketball heroes.

  • Junie3

    Ask Val, if you’re not with us, we’ll break your head. Sounds like her work

  • Junie3

    You can tell he knows by the way he shakes his head yes and his voice changes. Not a good liar.

    • Judy B

      IMHO, he’s a PHD in dishonesty.

    • Tony0920

      The way he shifts left, almost instantly when he senses what’s coming. Demonstrative of being coddled and not able to hide the internal disdain for anyone ballsy enough to ask such a forward, tough question.

  • James Edward Thomas

    Lying liars and crap weasels!

  • Daniel Brenek

    Of course, that depends of your definition of “Not familiar” is. I’m sure they have already been forced to sign non-disclosure contracts. That way, none of them will be even able to confirm on deny that they were actually there.

  • Kim Machir

    “I was not aware that anyone knew about the Benghazi whistleblowers, and I don’t know who has leaked that we’re trying to silence them. But I will find out.”

    • Ali’s Snackbar

      He will be focused like a laser beam to find out. Why hasn’t anyone brought this to his attention in the last 7 months? (I’m looking at you Beyonce)

    • Judy B

      Find out & tell it, when the devil builds a snowman in hell!

  • David Diehl

    we have all heard the rumours that the survivors are being intimidated, why hasnt he?
    the most out of touch president ever? or just a damn liar?

    • mdtljt

      I vote for the latter…

  • hwy505

    My guess is that Obama may not have plausible deniability on this one! Question is, who would be willing to take the hit and to go to jail for him?

  • Right Wired

    He went to the Bill Clinton School of Question Deflection

  • pepper grove

    Reminds me of Sgt. Schultz on “Hogan’s Heroes.”

  • redstilettos
  • John Riddick

    Hey OBAMA,…”No Mas Pantelonties”
    “Liar Liar,…Pants on fire”

  • Orlando Cee

    He’ll assign Rachel Maddow as lead investigator and the trail will lead back to the Boy Scouts of America. I can see it now…

  • BlahBlah

    Yeah I don’t know. Every day I say I’m sick and tired of the orangutan-in-chief and then he does something that makes me even more sick. What a scumbag if I ever saw one. I pray some day he is impeached and rots in jail.

  • bigkahuna9

    Not to worry. Barry called and got his date with the out of work nobody gay NBA player Jason Collins. Look …a squirrel.

  • John F Gordon

    Body language indicates he’s lying.

  • Naplesjim

    Liar, liar pants on fire.

  • Frank Ansede

    Let Candy Crowley answer it for you

  • Eric Phillips

    Everything needs to be done NOW
    to shine the light of day on these cowards. They made the call, they hung Americans out to dry, and they are the ones lying about what happened. Call a Congressional Investigation commitee and let’s get going!

  • dinkerduo

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO CALL THEIR REP. AND SENATORS AND DEMAND THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THOSE BENGHAZI SURVIVORS GET IMMUNITY so that they can come forward! We are so sick and tired of the lies—I don’t know why Amb. Stevens was slatted to be killed—but the cover up is so ‘we’ won’t know that Obama and his ilk were sending munitions from Libya into Turkey to the Syrian rebels WHO ARE AL QAEDA–so in incense–Obama is giving arms to the enemy!
    THAT’S WHY THE COVER UP—could Fast and Furious be that they gave al Qaeda in MEXICO, perhaps? Their story there doesn’t add up either!
    Sorry for you who already know all of this but some still don’t.

  • Eric Phillips

    If it looks like a traitor, if it stinks like a traitor, “you know the rest!”
    Once the questions start flying, they will wilt under the pressure.

  • martha

    Uh, yeah, I’ll find out…it should only take me about 3 1/2 years..

  • Karl Morey

    Hey, look–#Behghazi is the top trend on Twitter right now.

  • tops116

    Great, here’s a ‘wonderful’ alternative: either Obama is lying point-blank to the American people, or he really does have no clue what’s going on despite–y’know–being the one in charge.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Unfortunately, either one of the scenarios you describe is equally plausible.

  • © Sponge

    He’ll get to the bottom of it, just like he’s “focused like a laser” on jobs and the economy……….

  • Tim jones

    Prison is catching up to the hustler-in-chief!

  • Axelgreaser

    NOT ONLY IS OBAMA A DICTATOR in spite of his protestations, he’s the same President who upon visiting the Queen of England breached protocol twice when he toasted her during the Queen’s anthem like a fool after wife lunged at the octogenarian Monarch & ‘touched’ her, glommed onto really. It’s amazing Mrs. Obama didn’t drag a coconut cream pie out from under he wig and offer it to her as the evening’s dessert ‘from across the pond.’ And so Obama’s juvenile use of the English language (‘totally’) and the ensuing preptosterous answer to a ligit question regarding HIS likely approval to threaten Benghazi whistle blowers is more terrifying than surprising. Whether the Press ‘Corpses’ attending leaned to the left or to the right, this question would be of interest to all of them, certainly to American citizens, had the ‘Press Conference Swindler’ answered it. He didn’t: “It’s Congresses job!” And speaking of the press who attended this ‘rare ‘press performance’, they must have consumed pots of coffee in advance that a spoon could stand up in or taken uppers to keep from falling over on their faces from Obama’s wild ‘detour’s’, rambling, self agrandizing, filibuster length answers (that weren’t answers), lectures and bald-faced lies.

    Anyone who attends an Obama ‘Presser’, whatever their politics, should be awarded the Purple Heart for endurance and for walking out not deafened by Obama’s hissy regurgitation of his ‘goals and agenda.’ Jay Corny could have handled this and just worn an Obama mask.

  • Jamie Huff

    He takes “full responsibility” for what happened in Benghazi. Isn’t that enough? Besides, “What difference does it make?” He’s also not familiar with creating jobs or reducing the national debt or just about anything except talking non-stop or playing golf or vacationing or avoiding economic briefings or attending parties or looking at himself in a mirror or congratulating homosexuals or joking about the lack of shovel ready jobs or posing for photo-ops with Hurricane Sandy victims or appearing on the View or David Letterman or blowing kisses to himself in another mirror or pretending to get emotional after the Sandy Hook shootings or working hard to take away law-abiding citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights. Whew! He is a very busy man so maybe we should cut him some slack.

  • La Lummus

    Like he once said he believe his own bullshit … glad he does because we don’t

  • Axelgreaser

    I was reminded of the classic scene in KLUTE in which prostitute Jane Fonda in the throes of a feigned passion and pinned underneath a ‘John’, looks at her wrist watch over the shoulders of her ‘business man’ when poor put-upon Obama, likely exhausted from the stress of dishing out empty and ‘low info’ answers to any queries presented to him during his ‘rare’ and stagey photo-op ‘presser’ both referenced the fleeting time, inferring the press and American public’s right to know are non-essential, but I swear he looked at his wrist before he languidly tossed out: “OK, last question.” His stomach must have been growling for lunch as we know his feet don’t hit the floor till 10:00 am. To top it all off in perfect Obama bad taste, his gift, he regurgitated more ‘Gay’ talk. Astounding!

  • stillinthe60s

    Obama; Benghazi, oh yeah that’s the stuff I use to heat up my sore muscles after a few hours of banging the basketball off the rim.

    • Jamie Huff


  • toreilly

    Oh hey, he’s been very clear from the start… as always. uh huh…

  • Linus Redding

    These supposedly College Educated Journalist are certainly keeping their Questions concerning Benghazi on a leash… The fourth estate needs to repopulate it’s house with journalist that are obsessed with finding facts and following a story to it proper conclusions. Who, What, When, Where, And Why? These are the clandestine facts that Americans deserve to know, but something is blocking that flow. That Cleansing flow of truth that upon finding it’s way through, will clean and restore the our Nation.

  • regmgr

    He spends more time with planned parenthood than he does on the economy. Then he calls a gay NBA player who probably out earns him. Wonder if he spends any time thinking about how to create jobs? What a waste of leadership.

  • UsGotRights

    Come on John Kerry don’t go down the rabbit hole like Hillary she missed the bus and it does make a difference be an American tell the truth time to own up and spill the beans do not go down with the ship like the rest. Try to do the right thing for once. Look what gross negligence did to your state.

  • UsGotRights

    Who said Let Me Be Clear a ‘RED LINE is a GAME CHANGER’ and the other one says Its all ‘FOGGY’. Who is telling the truth here?

  • Alex Summer

    Watch his eyes, Liars always blink when they are telling the lie.

    Why can’t America start calling Obama the POSUS (Piece of Sh*t of the US) instead of POTUS, which he doesn’t want to be, anyway??? It’d be more truthful…unlike him.
