Soledad O’Brien shows how it should be done. She grills Rep. Joe Heck on why it was alright for Condoleeza Rice to tell lies about WMD, and why according to Heck, it is not alright for Susan Rice to give a statement about Benghazi that may have later turned out to be incorrect.
John McCain, in an effort not to be outdone by his fellow Republican hypocrites, apparently didn’t show up to a closed briefing on Benghazi yesterday, preferring instead to hold a press conference demanding more information on what happened in Benghazi and also threatened to block Susan Rice’s nomination for SOS because he felt she wasn’t qualified! Can you fecking believe it?
This is the man who gave the world this…
Anyway, back to McCain…
From Think Progress:
Dana Bash reports:
I have to tell you something that just happened on Capitol Hill, and that is our senate producer Ted Barrett just ran into John McCain and asked about something that we’re hearing from Democrats, which is John McCain is calling for more information to Congress, but he had a press conference yesterday instead of going to a closed briefing where administration officials were giving more information. Well, Ted Barrett asked John McCain about that, and it was apparently an intense very angry exchange and McCain simply would not comment on it at all.
It is now being reported that he had a scheduling error.
You’d think that after last week, these dinosaurs would at least try to pretend that they were acting in the best interests of their country. The good news is that this time around, President Obama is not going to let them away with it.
