GINGRICH: But the bigger issue is, whether it's unemployment or it is what's happened in Benghazi, where we've had this strange story over the weekend that the secretary of defense apparently refused to obey the president's order. If the president is telling the truth and he actually instructed his assistants to get aid to Benghazi, we're now being told that the secretary of defense canceled that.
And I think these kind of things all drag down the Obama campaign. You'll notice he's canceling his trips over the hurricane. He did not cancel his trips over Benghazi. And so you have to wonder, between Benghazi, the price of gasoline, and unemployment, just how much burden the president's going to carry into this last week.

“”If the president is telling the truth and he actually instructed his assistants to get aid to Benghazi, we’re now being told that the secretary of defense canceled that.””
What on earth is Gingrich smoking? I’ve been buried in details of this story all weekend along with many others and not once have I heard this story!
What’s with “his assistants”? He doesn’t have ANY ASSISTANTS in any position to send help - only his cabinet heads and we are told that he gave the order to DOD and DOD said NO!!!!!
No, he went on a fund raiser... how classy. Did he care about the Americans killed? Not no but HELL no!!!\
“Apparently the Secretary of Defense refused to obey the Presidents order”
The Art of War, betting Newt knows it cover to over. You just have to laugh at his brilliance. Newt is just letting Panetta know that he has Obama tire treads all over him. So basically the ball is in Panettas court and if that doesn’t do the trick Newt has given his underlings notice. Just how much do you really love Obama and are you willing to go to prison for him?
...menu featured “dead fish”.... /sarcasm
This ball has been passed from department to department up to the top and then back down. Gingrich has just told Panetta he is in the hot seat and asking him if he is willing to take the fall for this administration if not then you better prepare your defense and quickly before the evidence is lost.
Memo to Panetta...The fall for this one is Leavenworth. Are you ready for that?
Great response... you’re spot on.
