Lies and the Lying Liars...

Obama reelection efforts spokesperson Stephanie Cutter went on two interviews today. The videos are here and here. She has the unenviable job of defending the indefensible. And she does it poorly.

First Lie: Brook Baldwin mentions the Benghazi scandal is a "circus" but asks Cutter how do you explain the mixed messages coming from the administration?

Cutter replies that the administration has been open and honest from day one...

Right. Which is why they peddled a false narrative for a week and a half.

Second lie: Baldwin plays a montage of the administration saying different things even weeks after the al Qaeda attack and murders.

Cutter says the administration is focusing on capturing and prosecuting those responsible for the attack and murders.

Right. We're expecting arrests in a city the feds are too chicken to enter any day now.

Then she says one of the stupidest thing I've heard from her (and I've heard a lot of stupid things from her these past weeks): "...but the entire reason that this has become the, the political topic it is is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It is a big part of their stump speeches and it's reckless and irresponsible..."

It is a political topic because four Americans including an ambassador have been murdered by al Qaeda (supposedly no longer a player in the middle east), because of this Administration's fecklessness and then its members peddled a false narrative for a week and a half.

Third Lie: When Brett Baier played her the clip that I have just quoted from. Stephanie then said: "I was asked why it became such a political circus..."

No, Baldwin mentioned it was a circus but asked why were there "mixed messages" coming from the administration. She even played the montage. Stephanie offered the lie about why the false narrative and the murdered Americans were the subject of political discussion entirely because of the reckless and irresponsible politicization  by the Romney team in a dodge of that question not because she was asked it.

Perhaps the Obama campaign should cut its losses and furlough the incredibly ineffectual Ms. Cutter. If she told me that the sun was shining at noon, I'd look out the window and check.
