Cue the media outrage in 3..2..1..never

And now, your President with the quote of the day:
President Obama, during the taping of The Daily Show, discussed the Benghazi terrorist attack that claimed the lives of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
“Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it,” Obama said per pool. “The government is a big operation and [at] any given time something screws up,” he also said, saying that he believes “you find out what’s broken and you fix it.”
Sounds like another "bump in the road" to reelection but no worries: the media will gloss over this latest excursion from the teleprompter.  Note also that whenever something goes wrong in the Obama administration - gosh darn it - the government is so big and unwieldy that "screw ups" like four dead Americans are bound to happen.  Can't blame the One for that, can you?

Just imagine how bad Romney would have botched Benghazi at the debate if Obama had HAD a teleprompter.

That's OK: Candy was there to set the record straight.


What the hell was a fact check doing in our media stenography?

Not that the outragekateers will care, but this was Jon Stewart's question: "Even you would admit it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page."

It was an incredibly boring interview. The ability of people to seek and find subatomic pretenses for their offense kabuki is amazing.
