Dan Pfeiffer, President Obama’s senior adviser, appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss the IRS scandal and Benghazi. If you were expecting something profound and informative, fuggettaboutit.
The IRS scandal is not a scandal according to Pfeiffer. The White House knew nothing and the little they knew was found out by reading the morning newspaper. Fine, they didn’t know, they are merely incredibly incompetent. Meanwhile the IG report says that top Treasury officials were told in June 2012.
I knew about the allegations of targeting in 2010, and in 2011 and again in 2012. How could President Obama not have known? Is he so insulated that he has no clue?
In fact, Pfeiffer admitted Sunday they knew weeks ago but only in the most general way. Even though it was an election year, they weren’t the least bit curious to find out details that could affect Obama’s re-election because they didn’t want to interfere with the IRS. If that’s true, I’m Miss Universe.
Benghazi is a Republican conspiracy and where the president was that night is a totally irrelevant fact according to Pfeiffer. Irrelevant!!!
The State Department demanded the references to al Qaeda be removed but Pfeiffer has a selective memory on that. Check out the end of the clip at 03:58.
My conclusion is that the administration is incapable of accurately answering a question. I’ve also come to the conclusion that Nixon was a saint by comparison.
What difference…at this point…does it make?
