Obama Campaign Manager: Benghazi Attack Only an Issue Because of Romney and Ryan

October 11, 2012 at 3:06 pm (Benghazi, Bumps in the Road, Libya, Mitt Romney, Obama Administration, Paul Ryan, President Obama, Stephanie Cutter, Terrorist Attack)

Shorter translation – the American people don’t have a right to know what happened in Benghazi, and if it weren’t for those meddling Republicans, they wouldn’t be asking so many questions.

Washington Free Beacon:

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Thursday that the “entire reason” the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans has “become the political topic it is” is because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talk about the attack.

STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.

BROOKE BALDWIN: But, Stephanie, this is national security. As we witnessed this revolution last year, we covered it–

CUTTER: It is absolutely national security–

BALDWIN: –it is absolutely pertinent. People in the American public absolutely have a right to get answers.

The audacity of this woman to equate the realization by Romney and Ryan that the American people, and even more so, the families of those who died in Benghazi, have the right to ask questions about what happened and why it happened, to a political ploy is jaw-dropping.
This is an issue Ms. Cutter, because the people want to know why the administration didn’t do more to protect these Americans, why they covered up what really happened, and why you and your cohorts continue to view the terrorist attack in Benghazi as a ‘bump in the road’.
This woman is sick.
