Dude, former NSC spokesperson Tommy Vietor’s segment on Fox News was, like, two hours ago, and people are still talking about it. What difference, at this point, does it make?

You have to admit, it would be handy if the “that was years ago” defense were as widely accepted as Vietor seems to think it is. When it comes to Benghazi, for example, New York Times reporter Josh Barro is certainly a believer.

While we’re at it, what else can we stop “obsessing over”?

        I’m sorry, I know this is off topic…but does this guy even have to shave? I’ve seen more facial hair evidence on a 12 year old.

          He appears to be some sort of Burnt Sienna nylon.

        • Emily B

          I think he overdid it on the makeup, too. He looks like a Ken doll.

          • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

            His reaction when he got called out on Obama’s location during the attack showed that he’s “equipped” like a Ken doll as well.

          • MommaGator

            Don’t insult Ken doll like that. Ha!

        • stuckinIL4now

          He’s an Obamabot so maybe he really is a robot.

  • Maxx

    Four dead Americans in Benghazi two years ago. Old news.

    Mitt’s dog on the roof 30 years ago. Breaking news.

    And so goes another day in liberal la-la land. November, how I will love thee.

    • DG

      November can’t come soon enough.

      Obama launching his career out of the home of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Old news.

      Watergate scandal, still breaking news.

    • bobbymike34

      And don’t forget Mitt supposedly bullied someone over 50 years ago.

  • Nightvalzin

    As amazing as those were, I think Bobbie gave Barro his next article.

  • MemorialDime

    A couple of years ago, I got banned from a bar (one too many drunk escapades, I guess). I, needing a drink, and my favorite bar closed for repairs, went down to the bar and asked for a drink. The following exchangement went like this:

    Bartender: “Get out buddy, you’re not allowed in here.”
    Me: “Nah, it’s okay.”
    Bartender: “No, it isn’t. We’re still paying off the damage you caused.” (I caused considerable fire damage to the place, don’t ask)
    Me: “Dude, that was like, two years ago.”

    For some reason, I’m still not allowed in there. This guy can use that excuse, why can’t I?!

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      Because your name isn’t either Barack Obama or Killary Clinton.

    Hmmm….. Why is it ALWAYS 1964 in Alabama?

    Eloquence? Professionalism? Sounding like you’re educated when you speak?

    Dude, that was like 20 years ago. Wanna take a selfie?

    • dr44

      Dude! Check out my duck lips!

  • RD

    This administration is rife with characters from “The Fast Times at Ridgemont High”. Bro talk and selfies from a bunch of high schoolers in highly visible and powerful positions. What an embarrassment we have become. The inexperience and immaturity is utterly shameful. No wonder we are in such dire straights both domestically and internationally.

    • http://twitter.com/THE_DAILY_BLEAT VACUOUS CIPHER

      Funny, I was thinking sort of the same thing, kinda.

      • RD

        That is really funny and sad at the same time

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      I know which character from “Fast Times” the left loves the most in that movie. The girl who got the abortion.

  • AZWarrior

    You look like you just got a swirlie Tommy. Dude, that was like two hours ago!

  • SFfam

    I was watching this when it happened, and I was thinking “IS THIS HAPPENING?” These people have no clue. Then he treats Bret like HE is the idiot. Wow.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    Slavery happened a lot longer ago than Benghazi. Libs still use it at every opportunity.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    2 years ago is too long ago to matter. Yet libs still blame Bush for Obama’s stupidity. They still use slavery as a crutch for black people. They still bring up “Read my Lips, No New Taxes.”

    Sorry libs, but your words are meaningless. You can’t say Benghazi was too long ago to matter while you idiots are running around and bringing up things that happened even longer ago than Benghazi.

    Sandy Hook was almost 2 years ago. Yet libs still use it when talking about Gun Control. Practice what you preach libs. Otherwise shut up.

    The Iraq war ended almost 3 years ago (because of the time table set by Bush, not your Messiah), yet the libs still bring up Iraq every time one of Obama’s increasing list of foreign policy failures (like Benghazi) are mentioned.

      Doesn’t stop the left from bringing it up every time they want to make race an issue.

    • Jake Bradford

      I will have to use this the next time some prog tries to race-scold me.

  • John Howard

    Bush’s fault? Dude, that was like 5 years ago!

    With politicians being comical and the comics trying to be political, no wonder kids aren’t learning anything. I forgot to add “dude” somewhere.

    • http://www.FunDMental.com TheRealJackpineSavage

      Dude! You forgot to add the Dude.
      But, Dude it Was 2 hours ago (really, disqus says your post was 2 hours ago) :op
