The Corner

The one and only.

Born Yesterday

So the administration would have us believe that only after the election was the president told by the FBI that an investigation with possible national-security implications — involving no less than the director of the Central Intelligence Agency — has been going on since the summer. We’re also to believe that the director’s resignation after the election and before congressional hearings on Benghazi is purely coincidental. Not only that, but when the most powerful man in the world learned of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, he immediately ordered that everything be done to secure all personnel at the site — but apparently, everyone ignored him. So he did what any commander in chief would do under such circumstances — he went to bed.

Yes, they really do think we’re that stupid.

In related news, David Axelrod said yesterday on Face the Nation that he wants to inspire young people to go into journalism. It’s been a while since I’ve been to the White House. Is there that much water there?
