WASHINGTON, May 19 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama chastised his Republican opponents on Monday for focusing criticism on the events surrounding the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, and on his signature healthcare law.
"The debate we're having now is about what, Benghazi? Obamacare? And it becomes this endless loop. It's not serious. It's not speaking to the real concerns that people have," Obama said.
He was speaking to more than 60 people at a fundraising dinner for Democratic candidates for the House of Representatives.
The event took place at a physician's home in the Washington suburb of Potomac, Maryland, as Obama seeks to persuade Democrats to organize for a voter turnout effort to prevent Republicans from ousting Democrats from control of the Senate and from building on their majority in the House.
Republicans in the House have begun a new investigation of the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans during a militant attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

New Obamacare slogan announced: “We just killed your veteran grandfather, now let us kill you too!”
Proof that Osama Obama doesn't read the papers.Or the polls.
Like this guy gives a rat’s ass about anyone other than himself. He is the biggest POS ever to occupy the White House.
Excuse me ..?? I think the DEATH OF FOUR CITIZENS .. should most certainly be of concern.
But .. if people don’t care what Hillary did to four American citizens .. well then .. YOU BETTER HIDE .. BECAUSE WHAT SHE DID TO THEM - SHE WILL DO TO YOU.
“...because phony climate scares and transsexuals in the military are much more important to Americans than dead ambassadors and how much they’re going to be paying for healthcare for the rest of their lives,” he continued...
Until these four questions are answered....
1) Why was security lax at Benghazi?
2) Who decided to not send help?
3) Where is the ‘tic-toc’ timetable of both Obama and Hillary from beginning to end of events?
4) Who made the decsion to lie about a video?
.....the investigation should remain open. Sorry Bampster. We are the Investigation we’ve been waiting for!!!
As far as Obamacare goes...dude, you screwed up our healthcare 5 years ago!!! Of course, were gonna talk about it.
It's speaking EXACTLY to the real concerns I have. What WAS the Marxist, Mooslim, Kenyan, Steaming Pant Load doing while four brave Americans died? (for a start)
Golly gee! I thought the “Obamacare” label was now verboten. Can’t be, he’s still using it.
At this point, what difference does it make.
Yeah I bet he would prefer they be focused like a laser beam as he is on jobs, er the economy, er immigration, er voting rights, er gay rights...............................SQUIRREL!
So, the POTUS is attending a fundraiser with wealthy donors.
Instead of helping America recover from his crap sandwich economy.
Yep, Obama is REALLY speaking to "real concerns that people have".
If this were a republican administration, you'd never hear the end of how cold, out of touch, and callous the POTUS is.
how about telling him to do something he wouldn’t enjoy
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
Yeah well, get over it Barky.
We could speak about the Obamanation’s policies that are smothering the economy, reducing wages, and preventing full employment but “the one” wouldn’t like those topics any better.
Well, if he’s done anything better - that hasn’t hurt the country or our economy or our allies, then maybe he’s got a good point. It would be unkind to always talk about all the bad things he’s done if he’s done anything good to talk about. Wouldn’t it?
It's worse than gobbledygook. Can we still say that or is gobbledygook racist?
Benghazi, VA, Obamacare...all patterns showing the total disdain for human life like their abortion platform.
Guy’s been whining about an ex-president who’s been out of office for six years and now he expects us not to go after him for things that happened quite recently and have his fingerprints all over them?
And prey tell what are you focusing on, Mr. Preezy?
Obama might as just well say that he doesn’t care about Americans and just make it official. Everybody with half a brain knows it by now
At least for ObamaCare, we need to emphasize repeatedly that ObamaCare kills jobs, and to help the economy recover we have to get that terrible law out of the way.
And Thomson Reuters foundation licks Obama’s boots.
How’s he going to feel if Trey Gowdy throws a subpoena his way? Bet he won’t like that one dam*ed bit. I hope Gowdy does issue one to that sack of human effluent.
Didn’t Obama spend 2 years forcing Obamacare down our throats? Why is it ok for him, but not for anyone else?
Does he mean instead of focusing on all of his successes, the way Democrats always focus on Republican successes during a campaign year?
Now, which successes does he want the Republicans to focus on? Let’s start a list:
(wait, I’m thinking)
(still thinking. hold on a second)
(umm, give me another minute)
Oh, wait, they ARE his successes.
I guess the Republicans should just advertise what a great guy he is, the great unifier, the best president ever, which is great, because he’s our first black president and that proves we’re no longer a racist nation.
I’d criticize them too if they weren’t including the IRS crimes in that rap sheet.
Do we care what Amabo says?
“He was speaking to more than 60 people at a fundraising dinner for Democratic candidates”
Brave Sir Robin.
The regime pissed on the 1st Amendment to cover Benghazi.
The investigations are serious. The investigated are not serious.
Obamacare and healthcare costs are the biggest real concerns people have. Not income inequality and war on women as Obama wants the Rats to run on.
It sounds as though the Kenyan doesn’t want to talk about Benghazi, ObamaCare, the IRS, the VA,... Just stay away from anything related to his regime and you’ll be okay.
These are two of the reasons Barry has his people finally going after the Chinese for espionage.
A big fat distraction from IRS, Benghazi, the VA scandal (although, I am not sure how that affects him more than any other president. It is a multi term federal disgrace and shows what we are headed for with BarryCare), DemocratCare, etc.
In an odd sort of way, I agree with him. Don’t go after the symptoms, go after the cause. Ø!
It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book “Don’t pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.”
You’ll notice how every time the libs get involved in a scandal it’s always the same sob story: “We’re not making any progress while the conservatives are focusing on all of the problems that we caused.”
Well of course they’re not making any progress. They weren’t making any progress to begin with.

JOE WILSON LIE-A-THRON TRANSLATOR:
” - - - A visibly shaken, vey contrite, humble and often tearful Obama lavishly praised his Republican opponents on Monday for focusing well-deserved criticism on the events surrounding the deaths of four of his key employees, all Americans, who were abandoned on the field of battle in Benghazi, Libya, and on his completely failed signature health tax Law.
“The debate that we are finally having now is about what I was doing on the night of the Benghazi Murders, IOW “what was I doing, and who was I doing it with?’
“More than anyone else, I am looking forward to reading in the newspapers who was the top link in the Benghazi chain of command, so that he or she can be so severely punished that, in the future, even thinking about abandoning Federal Employees to be murdered on the field of battle will never happen again!”
“As for Obamacare, it has become a serious endless loop of incompetence on my part, and corruption by the foreign contractors that I illegally hired to create the worst health medical tax system ever devised by politicians, of any age.
“All of this is very serious. It is directly speaking to the real concerns that true Patriotic American People have,” Obama said. - - - “
1. There was not a dry eye in the house as Obama finished speaking.
2.) Only Speaker Boehner and House Majority Leader Cantor did NOT applaud during the standing ovation when Obama finished speaking.
So Obama, if there was a terrible law you wanted to repeal you eventually just stop talking about it because it would be too repetitive?
Your awful law making things worse is not something that people are concerned with?
And the courts piss on 9 of the Amendments of the Bill of Rights in order to cover the War on Drugs.
Neither party gives a shit about the Constitution, they're both in it for the power of the state — and since the Constitution's whole purpose is to limit that power they have no interest in seeing it upheld.
What difference does it make? and Pelosi's
Are you kidding me? (when asked about constitutionality of the ACA) perfectly summarize not only the left's feelings toward you, and truth, and Justice, and The American Way but the entire elite-caste's view. The only way to solve this problem is to break that caste, violently and suddenly shattering their entire world by forcing them to pay for their transgressions.
Endless loop, my ass. What clumsy propaganda this admin is engaging in.
The only reason these scandals seem endless is because of the endless lies, stalling, obfuscation, and stonewalling.
Basically the 0bama administration has done everything in its power to avoid either of these two issues being openly investigated.
And that should be the standard response to such tripe from 0bama and his ilk.
