At today’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney wanted to be perfectly clear about how he’s going to handle questions about Benghazi from now on:

“A long time ago,” Jay? Try telling that to the families of the four brave Americans killed on September 11, 2012 — just seven and a half months ago.

For them, the pain is as raw as ever.
Twitterers are sickened:
Give Carney a break. Benghazi recedes into the mists of time after you've allowed the 1st terrorist bombing on US soil since 9/11.

Carney: "Benghazi happened like a long time before Obama called to congratulate Jason Collins."

Odd…George W Bush's Presidency was a long time ago also and yet Carney & Obama can't stop talking about that #Benghazi

Sure is funny how that works, huh?
Benghazi happened a long time ago according to Jay Carney. Is that an excuse or just stupidity?

How about both?
What difference does it make? RT: @amandacarpenter: Groan. Jay Carney says Benghazi "happened a long time ago"

@amandacarpenter Use Hillary's words against Carney: Benghazi is still important. As for the time frame, what difference does it make?

#Carney Blarney. WH spokesman J.Carney said: "Let's be clear. Benghazi happened a long time ago." Trans: Plse stop asking me about it.

Makes sense Carney said #Benghazi “happened a log time ago” b/c the Constitution was made a long time ago & they don’t care about it either

Shorter Obama Admin: When Benghazi happened, it was too soon to talk about it. Now, eight months later, it's too late to talk about.

Carney says Benghazi "happened a long time ago." Those bumps in the road look very small in the post-election rear-view mirror.

Unbelievable. Can Carney stoop any lower?
Next, Jay Carney will tell us #Benghazi didn't happen at all.

Just wait. It’s only a matter of time.
