Paging Candy Crowley: Jay Carney repeats Benghazi lie from debates
Carney said Obama used act of terror in Rose Garden. Wasn’t that the Candy Crowley lie in the 1st debate? I can’t keep up w all the lies!

Attention Candy Crowley: you’re needed for a “fact check” in the White House press briefing room. Once again, someone from the White House is claiming that President Barack Obama described the “spontaneous demonstration” in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 as a terrorist attack the following day. Obama himself made that claim during the presidential debates and was backed up by “moderator” Candy Crowley who just wanted to “move things along.” Obama thanked Crowley for running interference and encouraged people to check the transcript; those who did, however, learned that Mitt Romney’s claim was correct. But that happened a long time ago; what difference, at this point, do the facts make?
Just incredible that Carney reused the “act of terror” claim today despite CBS transcript.

Carney: “The president himself said in the Rose Garden this was an act of terror”. Somewhere in Cali, Mitt Romney grimaces..

Carney bringing it back to the Rose Garden/”act of terror” moment. Candy Crowley/Debate instantly coming to my mind.

Ugh. Once again, WH spinning Rose Garden statement — “no acts of terror” actually means “this act of terror.” #liar

So we’re still on the Rose Garden “act of terror” thing? How long is @barackobama gonna get away w/ claiming that bs?

At the risk of testing Mr. Carney’s dwindling patience, how does that explain the president then blaming the video for weeks afterward, both at the U.N. and during an appearance on David Letterman’s show?
Obama DID NOT call Benghazi “an act of terror” in the Rose Garden. Weeks later he was still blaming the video.

Obama made general statement about terrorism in the Rose Garden, THEN went to the UN to repeatedly blame the video-driven demonstration.

@presssec it doesn’t matter what POTUS said in the Rose Garden it MATTERS what he said for 2 weeks following what he said in the Rose Garden
