Posted on 10/22/2012 7:51:37 AM PDT by shadeaud
CNN host Soledad OBrien and Rudy Giuliani clashed on Monday, with the the former New York City mayor accusing OBrien of trying to blame George W. Bush for the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
While interviewing Giuliani, OBrien played a clip of former Bush adviser Matthew Dowd comparing Benghazi to the invasion of Iraq, arguing it was possible for the intelligence to be initially wrong on Benghazi, just as intelligence indicating Iraq had weapons of mass destruction turned out to be false.
Were going to blame this on Bush, too? Giuliani said.

OK, heres the answer: It sounds like were trying to blame Benghazi on Bush, Giuliani responded. Its absurd to blame Benghazi on Bush. All [President Barack Obama] needs to do is answer a simple question: Did he know about the consulate attacks that took place before Sept. 11, 2012? There were two of them, one of which blew a hole in the embassy wall. Also, did he know the British consulate, which was basically next door, that they moved out because of the tremendous amount of risk to that consulate?
Soledad O’Brien has become a gift.
At “I’m a journalist” - I would’ve laughed in her face.
These people are delusional.
No, she is a campaign worker and not a very good one.
Pray for America
I don’t think most people know about the previous attacks on the mission. Hopefully Romney will bring up those facts tonight because this is not just about 9/11.
You are being too kind.
“No, she is a campaign worker and not a very good one.”
CNN/DNC put her in that time slot to target the morning break busy mom demo. The discourse is always 3rd grade level on that show when she doesn’t have a good GOP guest like Rudy or Sununu.
"I am a journalist!" Well, Soledad, if you feel you have to say it . . .
Why didn’t those protesters in Egypt have mortars and RPGs? Because they weren’t going to attack an American consulate. Good God, the Democrats must be amazed when a plumber shows up with a pipe wrench. It’s the tools that help identify the tradesman. Protesters have signs. Terrorists have mortars and RPGs and machine guns. It took me about 20 minutes to figure out this was an attack and not the Benghazi Knitting Club on a bender. I guess they should fire the state department and hire me.
....that keeps on giving.
When will LIBERALS take blame for their mistakes? hey Liberals, why not blame Bush for the EXTINCTION of the DINOSAURS??
Methinks she doth protest too much.
A journalist is someone who pretends to have no bias. That’s inherently dishonest.

I remember when Soledad was merely a ‘foil’ for Bill O’Reilly.
