You know who ‘forced’ the admin to create lying Benghazi talking points? The GOP, says ex-NSC spokesman

Brazen, and yet totally predictable.

Tommy Vietor, Obama’s former National Security Council spokesman, took to Twitter this morning to reveal the real culprit behind the repeatedly altered Benghazi talking points: House Rethuglicans, natch.

Amb. Susan Rice blamed some crappy YouTube video for the Benghazi terror attack. On five Sunday talk shows. Is this guy seriously suggesting that the administration shouldn’t be culpable for scrubbing terror references because the GOP forced the talking points to be written?

Shame is a completely alien concept to this cockroach.

Yes, enlighten us, Tommy. That is, if you’re not too busy parroting Jay Carney’s revolting spin that Benghazi “happened a long time ago.” Old news, right?

Those lies were, like, nine months ago. Old news and stuff. Also, meany-pants Republicans made us!11!!!

What a disgrace.

    • Kevin Gallagher

      Liberals will do anything to blame someone else for their failures. The sad thing is that a lot of their followers actually believe it.

        The Ultimate liberal t-shirt now says (with an arrow) “It’s His/Her Fault”

    • Elaine

      It is sort of the Republicans fault they lied. They knew if they didn’t lie, the Republicans would win.

      • thetreyman

        exactly. that’s all this guy is saying. basically, ” we had to lie or the republicans would have pointed out our failures before the election and we would have lost. so, its not our fault, its theirs for being our opposition.”

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Libs can’t help themselves. We need to be tolerant of their ‘compulsive behavior to lie’. It’s in their genes.

    Liberals are the most pathetic scum on the planet. They let 4 men die and lied about it and tried to cover it up, now they are saying they did it because the Republicans MADE THEM? Anyone who still watches the liberal media is an idiot.

    • Garth Haycock

      What this fool, Vietor, is saying is that team Obama had to lie because the GOP wanted to know the truth.

      I suppose it makes sense if one doesn’t want to be held accountable for one’s actions.

      • fivegreatkids

        Your last sentence describes their actions to a tee. I truly don’t think they are accountable for their actions. If one does not believe in God then who are you accountable to? Your boss? If yr boss is just as ‘unaccountable’ then what is the problem? We have 1/2 a nation that is accountable to ‘no one’ and they don’t care about honesty, integrity, honour etc…
        Houston, we have a problem….

    • grais

      Yes, and let’s not waste time talking about something that happened so long ago. Let’s talk, instead, about something that happened just as long ago.
      I’m so friggin’ sick of these idiotchildren.

  • pairadimes

    Tommy, go out in the yard and break a green branch off a tree that is as big around as your pinky and at least two feet long. Then bring it to me in my study and close the door after yourself.

  • TocksNedlog

    So . . . it was a long time ago, AND it does NOT “actually matter”?

    ‘Cockroach’ is being too kind. He’s more like a pustulent maggot.

    [His avatar needs a caption: “What the hell is THIS crap?! I asked for a Ché t-shirt, dammit!”]

  • ObamaFail

    “We’re sorry we lied and tried to cover up that we let those men die for political reasons, but it’s….um….THE REPUBLICANS MADE US DO IT!!!!” Seriously? They are trying to spin this into blaming Republicans again? That’s pathetic. And there will be lib morons who will believe that nonsense, because liberals don’t look up facts, they just immediately believe whatever they hear on CNN, MSNBC, and out of that lapdog lying mouth of Jay Carney.

With each lib/prog tweet & post I’m reminded of this huckster. Pretty soon they’re going to come flat-out & say,”Are you gonna believe me or your lyin’ eyes?” and actually mean it…and the “lib/prog congregants” will rise up in one voice and shout, “WE BELIEVE YOU!!!” What simpletons…

    Because the White House & Hillary’s Sec. of State ALWAYS do what the ugly Republicans demand they do! LOL….

    I am sure the House Republican leadership asked for information, and the talking points the White House wanted to issue……yeah, they’d like answers.

    Yes, that’s it…..Boehner & Company said, give me that list of TP lies! Fast! I have to go on with George and Bob asap!

    Oh yeah, and the Youtube story about a bad homemade anti-arab movie…..that’s 100% true too….pass it on…….s-h-h………..

    Memo to Barry in New York w/Beyoncé and Jay Z w/I hours of the Benghazi butchering…….the GOP is demanding we give them TP’s right now! So, we obliged happily and gave them the fake talking points …ok?


    We all know that you and your ObamaGovt hopes that the audiences out here will continue to still say “Who is Ben Ghazi?” and distract, deflect, detour, change the topic. Yet, we are here to inform you that, We The People Will Do our Civic Duty to and for our Fellow Countrymen and Countrywomen of America whom serve all over the world, that that is Not Going To Happen!
    We The People are on a Fact Finding Mission: Who? What? Where? When? How? Why? Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Ft. Hood!


    The Talking Points Memo Was Taken To The Air Waves By Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice (5 times), Barack Obama took those talking points to the United Nations Meeting.
    Tommy Vietor what do you have to gain by Lying?

    We await Your Reply Tommy Vietor.

  • journogal

    So for being a totally irrelevant group, according to the liberals/progressive, Republicans obviously have a lot of power.

    • OLLPOH

      We The People have a lot of power, only if we take it back and acknowledge that we have been complacent.

      • journogal

        Very true…we are the ones to blame for allowing for it to get like this. But tell me, do you think it’s too late?

        • OLLPOH

          Absolutely Not!

  • rennyangel2

    Es stupido hack.

    You can’t stop Benghazi now but you can stop the “immig reform” bill.

    Call the sen. 202-224-3121 and send free faxes through free Numbers USA and stop this abomination that pols. want to give away to Mex.


    It is the Responsibility and Civic Duty of All American Citizens is to look and find the Truth, however painful it may be.

    We all understand that Hillary desired a noble permanent place for Ambassador-ship in Libya. How conscience was set aside, and ignorance of the Commander in Chief that he/she would not have gotten permission from Libya to fly some type of aircraft into Benghazi to at least give some semblance of a deterrent whether armed with ordnance or not is Not Acceptable under any form way shape or fashion.
    And at 8:13am this morning according to Reuters, there is Political Unrest and Explosions taking place in Libya; and Britain is doing Evacuations that were temporary. So, Mr. Vietor, is it the job of us to notify the State Department, the Whitehouse that, “hey Heads Up, Get Our New Ambassador Out, Now? Or are they just collateral and expendable to ObamaGovt? Com se Com sa?
    Still waiting for your reply Tommy Vietor?

    “Yes @stephenfhayes or we could talk about things that actually matter like embassy security and not Sunday shows 9 mos ago. Just a thought!”
    Dude, a lie is a lie. It doesn’t matter if that was 9 mos ago or 9 centuries ago. Geeweez…

  • CHHR

    wait, I’m getting so confused… you mean, the very same GOP that Obama claimed as incompetent and fully disengaged in the things that mattered most to this nation actually had input that mattered when they demanded a full time-line that the ADMIN just had no choice but to scrub facts from before the ADMIN ranted for weeks was the result of a video the GOP pontificated was a non-relevant consideration?
    geesh, the insult to my intelligence is amazing.

  • Daniel Medicis

    So the Left now ADMIT they’ve been lying but are frantically trying to pin the blame on someone else. Obama, Rice, Hillary, etc. stood IN FRONT of the coffins and LIED to us all. Why? To protect a GUN RUNNING operation.

  • Daniel Medicis

    12 different versions of talking points edited by the Administration. Even the Leftwing media admit this. All references to Al Qaeda and warnings of an attack were removed.

    By whom? Why?

    What did they know and when did they know it?

  • Daniel Medicis

    Where are the Leftist trolls to come and explain to us why it’s OK for THEIR side to run guns, get people killed, and lie about it? Remember Iran-Contra and the faux outrage by the Left?

  • gold7406

    scrubbing talking points 12 times? more thought, more effort, more enthusiasm, more concentration, more time, put into lying than trying to save those in benghazi.
    they have disgraced the country.

    I guess when they said,”we have your back,” it was as if it came from jodi arias.

  • Oscar Contreras

    Yea sure Tommy, Republicans forced Obama to change the talking points. So now your admitting that all the talking points we’re changed, and so now you’re trying to blame it on republicans? Really? Is that why Hillary and Obama tried to cover it up?

    Maybe the talking points WERE written 9 months ago, a month BEFORE the attack….
    Wouldn’t put it past this administration……..

  • Kyle Bradelle

    Those dastardly Republicans. Now, if only they were strong and mean enough to make 0bama tell the TRUTH.

  • Adela Wagner

    So the Repubs said “we want a timeline” and since Obama et al don’t know their asses from holes in the ground, they just made stuff up, put a guy in jail and chalked it up to mean bullies? So this means we are being run by either complete incompetent liars or a bunch of wussies. ( I vote both)

  • interestedobserver2

    This guy is holding the flag the wrong way — it should be upside down to signal the distress we are all in. As far as his trollish talking points go, what else can you expect from someone still living in his mom’s basement and playing “World of Warcraft” all night long? It’s not like he had the attention span of a gnat or anything…. And after all, it was just some white guys who got scragged over in some little dump of a town; If they were worth anything, they would have been safely in NYC writing for the NY Times. Plus it was NONE WHOLE MONTHS ago — I mean how long are we supposed to feel that these people dying in a completely unnecessary and bungled diplomatic disaster is in any way relevant to the really important stuff, like who’s ahead on American Idol?

    The nice thing about a dedicated liar like Hussein et al is….they never need to be “forced” to lie. It’s second nature, bred into them by decades of their chicanery, deceit, and feelings of insecurity.
    However, IMHO, Obamas’ need to be adored, in the spotlight, and a rock star seemingly comes from his imagining of himself as an underprivileged black class warrior who now has the opportunity to exercise total authority over whites while wasting Americas $$$ on lavish vacations, funding his union and donor expectations, and unneeded “stimulus” spending.

    “…or we could talk about things that actually matter like embassy security…”

    I don’t think the left would want to go there if they knew the facts (who am I kidding they never know the facts).

    Per Mr. Nordstrom’s written statement, security requirements for U.S. diplomatic
    facilities are established by statute Secure Embassy Construction and
    Counterterrorism Act of 1999 (SECCA).

    The Obama administration simply ignored and violated the already legally
    mandated security requirements.

    At the time of the Benghazi attack, only a small number of the 264 overseas diplomatic posts were rated either HIGH or CRITICAL in threat categories related to political violence, terrorism, and crime. Our posts in Benghazi and Tripoli were
    among those posts and the only two facilities that met no OSPB or SECCA standards.

    And it gets worse from there for Sec. Clinton.

    The ap recently had a story on how some doctor thought General Stonewall Jackson probably died from pneumonia. He was shot three times by a sentry after the Battle of Chancellorsville, and doctors had to amputate his left arm. He lived eight days after the accident, but succumbed on May 10. Reading of Jackson, it got me to thinking. What would he think of the “leaders” of today?
