Benghazigate bus bump? CIA deputy director resigns; WH lawyer will replace

Desperation: Carney ties Bush, Romney to IRS scandal and Benghazigate [video]

Jay Carney

Well, nearly three hours after he was supposed to start, Jay Carney finally got around to giving his daily press briefing. And more than four years after President Obama took office, Carney is blaming George W. Bush for Obama-era problems. When asked about the IRS’ admission that it targeted conservative groups before the 2012 election, […]

Faced with #Benghazigate, Jason Alexander attacks Andrew Breitbart, conservatives

Jason Alexander George Costanza

George Costanza doesn’t seem to be able to handle the truth when it comes to #Benghazigate — or anything else: So he’s lashing out at the late Andrew Breitbart for having existed and at other conservatives on Twitter for refusing to allow the story to be buried. @pprasser_ site ur source, please. And if it’s […]

Sickening: Obama tells Red Cross ‘we leave nobody behind'; #Benghazigate says otherwise


Yes. Yes he did. Speaking about Hurricane Sandy at the Red Cross yesterday, President Obama had the temerity to assert his so-called “leadership” in times of crisis and proclaimed that he leaves nobody behind: Twitterers were disgusted that Obama could stand there and tout his commitment to protecting American lives after his shameful conduct following […]

Ghastly: Hillary Clinton laughs while discussing #Benghazigate, downplays emails, lies


That’s right. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took questions on Benghazi today.

And laughed about it.

Not so fast … did Hillary really take the fall on #Benghazigate? Passes buck back, Obama punts


Hmm. As Twitchy reported last night, media outlets were running with the news that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton threw herself under the Obama bus for #BenghaziGate. But did she really? Ace of Spades has his suspicions as well. In fact, this all seems to be worse for President Obama. Don’t put anything at all past Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton draws short straw, dives under Benghazigate bus; ‘I’m responsible’


After a weeks-long game of political hot potato over who exactly was responsible for the security failures which led to the deaths of four Americans in Libya on Sept. 11, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today offered herself as a sacrifice, telling CNN she wanted “to avoid some kind of political gotcha” so soon before […]

Appearing tonight on “Special Report,” lying liar Stephanie Cutter tripled, quadrupled, quintupled down on her disgusting assertion that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are using the deaths of four Americans in Libya for political gain. She took offense to the idea that she and the rest of the Obama Administration are the ones guilty of […]

Wasserman Schultz: It’s un-American to question Dear Leader on #BenghaziGate


As Twitchy reported last night, even Piers Morgan was forced to take DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) to the woodshed over outrageous statements about the Obama administration’s Benghazi lies. As reported, she said that false doesn’t mean wrong. Unreal.

But it gets worse.

LA Times writer criticizes Fox News, Bret Baier for not defending Obama post-Benghazigate

James Rainey

The truth hurts. And it’s inconvenient for liberal “real reporters” like the L.A. Times’ James Rainey, who is reserving his criticism over Benghazigate not for President Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Susan Rice, but for Fox News. You see, while the shovel-wielding networks are busy trying to bury the coverup, Fox News and Bret Baier have been diligently chronicling the […]

Lapdog priorities! David Gregory tweets baseball while #BenghaziGate Libya hearing proceeds


Wow. Rep. Cummings disgracefully couldn’t remember Ambassador Stevens’ name during the House Oversight Committee hearing on Libya today and “real journalist” David Gregory thinks it’s not even worth mentioning. Might be time to revive #DavidGregoryQuestions!

Fact-checking WaPo, PolitiFlack fact checkers: Lapdog media enables downplaying of #BenghaziGate lies


The Washington Post employs Glenn Kessler to be its “fact checker.” Yet, it seems he doesn’t need to check any pesky facts that are bad for President Obama. See, Mr. Kessler wouldn’t even check the facts he was forced to lay out. “Just a blogger” Ace of Spades gives him a drubbing and exposes how the lapdog media is enabling President Obama’s attempt at a cover-up.

#BenghaziGate: Intel pointed to terrorism within hours; Will lapdog media cover or cover up?


Eli Lake’s excellent reporting shows that within hours of the Benghazi assault, intel indicated it was the “t” word that shall not be named.

The White House spent nine days apologizing, bowing and groveling. Nine days of blaming a cruddy video and attacking freedom of speech. Nine days of lying.

When will this story get the media attention it deserves?

As wheels come off White House’s ‘blame the video’ narrative, #BenghaziGate trends


Like a cold being passed around the office, the truth behind the death of the United States’ ambassador to Libya is spreading — slowly — through the Obama administration. Today, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta admitted in a press conference that the assault which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others “was a terrorist attack.” TODAY: Sec […]
