Cutter: Benghazi Is Only an Issue ‘Because of Romney and Ryan’
Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 11, 2012 | Washington Free Beacon Staff

Posted on 10/11/2012 12:09:24 PM PDT by Snuph

Video at link...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–

Really? It is not about Americans being assassinated? It is not about incompetence in the administration? It is not about the lies Zero, the Hildabeast and Rice have been spouting? It is all about Romney and Ryan ???

I hope Biden parrots this tonight at the debate. Ryan will destroy him if he says something so offensive and dumb.

It’s Biden so he very well might.

Pretty stunning. They are imploding before our eyes.

Sure. It’s only the normal people who expressed outrage over the murders. The media, dems and obama’s jihadi buddies didn’t give a rat’s butt over the deaths.
The ambassador and the others killed were sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.
They didn’t care and don’t care!

The media, dems and obama’s jihadi buddies were going to let it fade away.

Four Americans were brutally murdered by Al Qaeda islamoterrorists celebrating 9-11 and it’s no big deal to this ditzy broad. Commies are such morons. Everything is about Barry Soetoro and the “election” with those maggots.

what a moron! i want to see this played again and again... the gaul of anybody to even talk about this "issue" when we should be focusing on the upcoming debate... gawd these people make me sick to no end!

this really shows that they expect to be able to get away with anything and everything by the media... as far as they are concerned, the media should not even be bringing this up...

Ya know, I think I prefer a president who “has no plans of his own” to one with plans to decimate business and sink the economy.

When your ambassador gets murdered, that’s an issue. For you lib lurkers out there this is a real issue. Not an artificial issue that only applies to a small percentage of the population, not an “issue” only in the minds of the talking heads and manipulators... An ambassador represents the Country. Murdering an ambassador is tantamount to a declaration of war.

This is disgusting. She’s saying that the Ambassador’s assassination along with 3 other Americans wouldn’t be a big deal if it weren’t for Republicans talking about it? HOW CAN SHE SAY THAT WITH A STRAIGHT FACE?

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G... only an issue because of Mitt Romney.

Maybe Mitt should continue to focus on Budgets, Jobs, Spending, the Debt, National Security, etc. ... perhaps then the “O-Administration” will focus on the REAL important issues that we are looking for solutions rather than Birth control, the DREAM act, their opposition to Voter ID, and every other Obama topic that is out in left field...

I’m surprised she didn’t say ‘The Republicans cut funding for the Ambassador’s security so we relocated him from Tripoli to Benghazi to be slaughtered so we could blame them!’.

Alright, that was the event horizon for Obama and his campaign team right there: I mean, at least give some sympathy for the events that happened. What’s even more rediculous is if Obama and his campaign actually condemned the Libya and Egypt events swiftly as acts of terrorism, they probably would have squished Romney’s moderate support, if he so much as had any, but since they made the issue about Romney so much as offering a complaint, or even just apologized immediately following, they would have upped the support, but once again, they decided to do something even more rediculous than I already thought possible from them.
