Stephanie Cutter Tries to Spin Benghazi-Gate

Deputy Obama campaign director Stephanie Cutter was interviewed on CNN today by Brooke Baldwin. This is the same Stephanie Cutter who orchestrated that Joe Soptic scam that tried to link Mitt Romney to Soptic's wife dying of cancer. Today, she told Baldwin that the administration has been open and honest with the American people on what happened in Libya from Day One.

The administration has been open and honest from day one about the Benghazi attack,” said Cutter. “As more information has become available, they’ve made that information available to the American people.”

To that the Baldwin played a montage of videotaped statements by various administration officials including UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta and President Obama (on The View, no less), which, of course, were all over the map. In addition, she played a statement by the mother of one of the victims, Sean Smith, in which she said that she still doesn't know how her son died, and that she has been told lies. To all  that, Cutter lamely relied that they were telling the public as best they could based on what they knew at the time........

"Blah blah blah, woof woof woof, quack quack quack"

And in this stunning statement, Cutter told Baldwin that the only reason this (Libya) has become such a political topic is because Romney and Ryan have politicized it.

"The entire reason that this has become the political topic it is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan,” Cutter said. “It’s’ become a part of their stump speech, and it is reckless and irresponsible what they are doing.”

You can watch the interview (without the clip of Smith's mother) at the below Mediaite link.

Some spin meisters are better than others, I guess.

The spin being put on this is unbelievable...and they expect us to believe it. They say they didn't have the proper intelligence to know it was a terrorist attack even a week afterwards...yet the Libyan government did. They say there was no info leading them to believe it was terrorism...yet most people, including the security officers in Libya, could put it together simply because it happened on 9/11. They say they didn't want to jump to any conclusions without having the proper intelligence...yet they had no problem jumping to the false conclusion that it was all about a protest over a movie.

Everything they're saying makes no sense and the whole thing stinks.
