    Re: White House in damage control mode as potential scandals pile up [W:378]

    the white house this morning:

    "Let's start with Susan Rice," said Pfeiffer. "Ambassador Rice went out that day, and represented the administration and spoke to what happened with the best information we had, that everyone in the administration had, is what she looked at. And that was the consensus of the intelligence community. What we do is we want to go out and speak to the problems ... And what's important is that when problems happen is that the president takes responsibility for them and tries to fix them. And that's what we're talking about in Benghazi. You're right, that is an abosulute tragedy what happened. And the question isn't who edited what talking points. That is largely irrelevant. What is relevant is to make sure that never happens again which is why the president is calling on Congress to pass legislation to beef up embassy security around the world and protect our diplomats."

    the administration's muscular defense: incompetence and irrelevance

    WHO edited the truth out of the talking points---the white house does NOT want you to know

    what are they covering up?

    "Look, I can't speak to the law here," he said. "The law is irrelevant. The activity was outrageous and inexcusable."

    You guys are such poor readers, that projection on unemployment was made prior to January of 2009, before anyone anticipated continuing layoffs and an economy that would be much slower in recovery. The point was, of course, that the ARRA did make a fair impact on unemployment no matter what total unemployment actually was.

    And if you guys REALLY want to get into projections on economic performance....I can do that too...

    Published: January 31, 2001
    Even before the budget office disclosed the new surplus figures, administration officials said that President Bush's plan for a $1.6 trillion tax cut over the next decade and his calls for more spending on the military, health care and education could all be accommodated comfortably without any risk to the government's fiscal health.

    ''We are seeing a government that is awash in surplus money, even with an economy that is softening from where it used to be,'' Ari Fleischer, the White House spokesman, said.

    Speaking after a meeting with Republican leaders at the White House, Mr. Bush said, ''Taxes must fit into a budget, which they will.''

    The budget office's projections suggested that the government would be able to pay off as much of the national debt held by the public as is possible to redeem easily -- all but about $800 billion of the total $3.4 trillion in debt held by the public -- within the next decade.

    wapo's watergate wonderboy, woodward, on mtp with david gregory:

    “You look at the whole Benghazi thing. You look at those talking points and the initial draft by the CIA very explicitly said we know that activists who have ties to Al-Qaeda were involved in the attack. Then you see what comes out a couple of days later and there is no reference to this. This is a business where you have to tell the truth and that did not happen here.

    it's the word of the day!

    Host Chris Wallace reminds Pfeiffer that Obama didn't really talk with Secretary Clinton, Secretary Panetta, or Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that night. "He was talking to his national security staff," Pfeiffer insists.

    Asked about whether the president entered the Situation Room, Pfeiffer says, "I don't remember what room the president was in on that night, and that's a largely irrelevant fact."

    Pfeiffer then argues that Wallace's questions about the president's handling of the Benghazi terror attack are "offensive."

    why doesn't he just say the president is an idiot, that might work

    As it turned out, even with the stimulus, we lost almost nine million jobs. Indeed, because of horrific job losses in late 2008 and early 2009, wed nearly passed the six-million mark before the Recovery Act was even signed. Adding in the estimated effect of the act, the correct no-stimulus baseline was a total employment fall of nearly 12 million. With a loss that big, creating three million jobs was helpful, but not nearly enough.

    The Libs are getting desperate. Obam's General Council knew of the IGs report 3 weeks before Obama supposedly learned about it from " the news".

    I guess they think it's a rationale explanation that his Main Council kept very damaging information from him for 3 weeks.

    We are seeing what happens to our Country when a the least of us elect a man with no character or qualifications.

    From the economy which id now on life support to these scandals this should show the American electorate that the right to vote doesn not equate to the right to be a dumbass.

    That their minimal grasp on reality can effect others in bad way.
