Skip to comments.Obama on Benghazi: 'There's No There There'
Posted on 05/13/2013 9:24:20 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
At a press conference today at the White House, President Obama said "There's no there there" on criticism of how his administration handled the Benghazi terror attack:
"And suddenly three days ago this gets spun up as if there's something new to the story," Obama said in response to a question about Benghazi. "There's no there there."
The president continued, "Keep in mind by the way these so-called talking points that were prepared for Susan Rice, five, six days after the event occurred, pretty much matched the assessments that I was receiving at that time in my presidential daily briefing."

Gadzooks! You just cannot... make this stuff up--
“There’s no there there”
I’m not evensure I know what that is supposed to mean.
I wonder if this is Obummer’s “Definition of ‘is’ is” moment.
“Nothing to see here,move along.”
Claims he immediately called it a terrorist attack and vowed to bring those responsible to justice.
It seemed to me that he was threatening other foreign diplomats when he said the republicans are wasting time on this.
I’m thinking it was a teleprompter typo.
There’s nothere there... instead of There’s nothing there.
Maybe the Chicago thug can tell us why in heaven’s name Susan Rice the ambassador to the UN was hauled out to explain Benghazi. How about Hilary Clinton who happened to be heading up Obama’s State Dept? How about the Secretary of non-Defense? How about Obama himself? No accountability.
The only differences Mr Thug-in-Chief between Benghazi and Watergate...no one was murdered in Watergate and it was not a terrorist event.
“Im thinking it was a teleprompter typo.”
And yet he read it just like it was written. Like the idiot he is.
DakotaGator on the Presidency: 'There's no President in America"!
Lie, misdirect, and confuse.
Yes, the initial intelligence said it was a terror attack. Yes, Obama didn’t refer to it as terror right away. Yes, it was a protest, and we arrested that guy in California who made the video no one saw. Yes, Susan Rice said it was a protest, and that was correct, even though we knew it was terror. Yes we did nothing, but we didn’t have assets in the region. Even though we had people respond who were told to stand down, but weren’t given any orders. Yes, we are going to find and bring to justice the people who did this, if they are found on one of the golf courses that Obama uses.
Clear, right? Nothing to see, move along.
Obama calls it all a political circus and sideshow — yes, one of the President’s own making!
Obama asks “who executes some sort of cover-up or effort to tamp things down for three days?” Someone in the middle of a close re-election campaign who is attempting to tee-up the first impressions on the tragedy in his favor. The voters remembered the Susan Rice “sideshow” lies rather than the after-the-fact disclosures.
the video in causing a demonstration ..Liar! He got caught. Cover up going on; has been for months. He didn't want to be hurt politically so lying was his game along with Hillary. She went to the memorial after she told the grieving family members it was caused by the video. She's a mean cold person/ not presidential to lie, deliberately. You dems and libs want that pushed on America. Again. No, thank you!
Dems and media may TRY to circle the wagon taking cues from Obama presser today.
Hope the keyword is ‘try’, implying without success.
But I know the people who only get their ‘news’ fed to them.....
So while he was asleep and our ambassador was dying he waited to find out what happened at ‘daily briefings’?
How did that go?
“Um... Mr. pResident, I hope you slept well, because our embassy was overrun last night and our ambassador raped and murdered”
Odumbo: “Oh yeah? keep me posted on that... I want daily briefings~! you hear me? DAILY”
He’s no more talented than Ron Burgundy from Anchorman.
Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama just now said at his presser that concerning the IRS Punitive Taxing Scandal, and the Benghazi Massacre Cover Up Scandal, that he would do the following:
- - - fix the system, and make sure that it never happens again. - - -
Why, this punishment bypass technique could be used for all crimes!
No more jail time for bank robbers, alien illegal invaders from Mexico, gang and terrorist shooters and bombers, violations of the US Constitution by elected Federal politicians, etc, etc!
We could close ALL of our jails if only the criminal would promise never to repeat the same crime!
Just make sure to FIX THE SYSTEM BY PASSING LAWS SO NOBODY GETS PUNISHED, AND THUS THE CRIME WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!
This will truly be a Political Sideshow Cornerstone for The Obamanation!
Puzzle for the day: If Zipper Boy Clinton claims that it all depends on what ones definition of is is, then can our sorry RINOs document that Benghazi Massacre Mastermind B. Hussein Obama assertion that there is no there there ?
