By the way, Obama didn’t make any phone calls as Benghazi was attacked

Before the election, we weren’t supposed to ask about the Benghazi attack because we were just trying to beat Obama. After the election, we aren’t supposed to ask about the Benghazi attack because Obama won and shut up.

So I guess this doesn’t matter. Washington Times:

President Obama didn’t make any phone calls the night of the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the White House said in a letter to Congress released Thursday.

“During the entire attack, the president of the United States never picked up the phone to put the weight of his office in the mix,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who had held up Mr. Obama’s defense secretary nominee to force the information to be released.

Mr. Graham said that if Mr. Obama had picked up the phone, at least two of the Americans killed in the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi might still be alive because he might have been able to push U.S. aid to get to the scene faster.

Hey, he had to get his beauty rest for his trip the next day:

They’ve done nothing but lie about Benghazi. Lies upon lies, and then lies about those lies. This is by far the worst– Hey, wait. Look over there! Is that… Marco Rubio taking a sip of water???

Ann Althouse thinks Obama is ashamed. I don’t think he’s capable of it. But as the greatest woman in human history said: What difference does it make?

Update: Are the men who lost their lives protecting people in Benghazi any less heroic than the men who killed Bin Laden? Not to me, but nobody’s ever going to make a movie about them.
