Obama Camp: Benghazi Is Only an Issue 'Because of Romney and Ryan'
Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Thursday that the "entire reason" the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans has "become the political topic it is" is because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talk about the attack.
STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this -- you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate -- but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It's a big part of their stump speech. And it's reckless and irresponsible what they're doing..
BROOKE BALDWIN: But, Stephanie, this is national security. As we witnessed this revolution last year, we covered it--
CUTTER: It is absolutely national security--
BALDWIN: --it is absolutely pertinent. People in the American public absolutely have a right to get answers
Cutter's remarks drew immediate criticism from across the political spectrum. But the Obama spox quickly doubled down on Twitter, replying to a Buzzfeed researcher, "Romney has politicized Libya w/no plans of his own. POTUS' priorities are getting facts & bringing terrorists to justice."
She is right. The only reason people know about the truth instead of the Administration and the MSM covering it up is because it was made an issue again and again.
Our ambassador being raped and murdered and these people have the hutzpah to come out and say it isn't a big deal and the only reason that it is a big deal is because of elections?
Tar and feathers is too good for them.
