Quote du jour

...White House aide Dan Pfeiffer was asked about President Barack Obama’s whereabouts the night of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi. This was the night when we lost our first ambassador in 30 years, and when three other Americans were killed in an attack that lasted all night long at multiple locations within the eastern Libyan city. Since the president is commander in chief, one would think where he was and what he did during such an event would be of obvious public concern.

Not according to Pfeiffer. He deemed the president’s location, and specifically whether he was in the Situation Room, “a largely irrelevant fact.” If it is so unimportant, why not simply tell us? It’s not as if we haven’t heard largely irrelevant information before. Humor us. Then everyone can judge the value of the fact for himself.

    1. I liked the suggestion that we draft Chelsea as our next ambassador to Libya. After all, what does it matter?

  2. A lib will NEVER understand why this is important to us. Hell we still salute the flag ... how backward is that?

    1. Too many libs think covering Obama's arse is more important than Constitutional principles. Hell, any principle at all!
