Obama Campaign Spokesman Abruptly Ends Radio Interview After Being Asked About Obama 'Lying' About
The Blaze ^ | 10/12/12 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 10/12/2012 8:20:22 AM PDT by Nachum

Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt abruptly ended a heated radio interview Thursday after being pressed on President Barack Obama’s differing statements on the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.

LaBolt insisted on Cleveland‘s WTAM that the White House has been sharing all the facts as they’ve come in from the intelligence community. Asked whether the president should make a statement disavowing his past comments blaming the assault on an anti-Islam video, LaBolt pushed back.

“The president called it an act of terror within 24 hours, he again updated the American people on the incident in Benghazi in his interview on ABC News last night and he — ” LaBolt said.

“So which time was he lying, when he called it a terror attack or when he called it a video problem?” WTAM’s host interjected. “Because he said two different things.”

“Thank you for having me this morning, I’ve gotta move to my next interview,” LaBolt said, ending the conversation.

Listen to the full interview below; hangup occurs around the 11:05 mark.

The OTrauma administration seems to be doing to itself what it has done to America.

"The president called it an act of terror Jihad within 24 hours"

Now, when that happens, let me know.

What was it that Harry Truman said, “If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen.” Looks like Ben LaBolt not only got out of the kitchen but ran out the back door as fast as his legs could carry him.

Hillarious. Hillarious because this is the technique that communist brainwashing experts use. "Which time were you lying, then or now, and why should we trust anything you say."

add this to the recent activities of the other Zero apologists/cleaners and it starts to look as if they are worried about a new meme for Zero. No longer will folks think “Hope & Change”, now they think “Liar” when they read his name.

I am a bit conflicted on this. On one hand, I fully agree with your assessment. The Obama administration is full of despicable liars and scum. On the other hand, I despise the lamestream media with a passion and wish more people would walk off gotcha interviews.

These lefties are used to softball interviews in which they are never challenged. They have no defense when asked tough questions other than to run away.

The WTAM host who did the deed was Bob France, a confirmed and mild mannered Conservative. It could have been worse. Their afternoon drive time host is Mike Trivisonno. He would have cut LaBolt a new a**hole in a heavy Cleveland Eastside Little Italy accent.

"The president called it an act of terror within 24 hours..."
If I remember correctly, Obama and his minons blamed it on the video for more than a week.

Perhaps what the spokesman really meant is that they KNEW it was a terrorist attack right away, but lied about it from the very beginning.

Ryan should have called him on the blatant lying.

But Joe would have just shouted, smiked, grinned, and laughed him down

And the moderator would have changed the subject.

It’s possible that Hillary will spill some beans just before the next debate that support the case for the administration lying about the events in Libya.

I heard this when it was aired. LaBolt was the usual 'rat automaton, mechanically repeating obviously false talking points. The host was pretty pissed afterward as were others in the newsroom, asking on the air, why waste time on such liars.

consumer confidence is at a 5 year high!

Of course, another effect of Romney's debate performance. The Consumer Confidence survey asks what people expect a year from now, and five years from now. Clearly, the heightened prospects of a Romney presidency and Obama defeat has elevated expectations for the future.

Good characterizations. Actually, Triv called in after the interview, with a brief comment on LaBolt's lies: "Oh. My. God."
