WHITE HOUSE TRIVIA: All of those dead bodies piling up from Benghazi and Fast & Furious? Those are on Fox

When confronted with rank propaganda like this, I really, really want to drop the f-bomb and other appropriate adjectives. But this is a family blog.

Not accustomed to being asked difficult questions about his failures in office, President Obama attacked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly during a pre-Super Bowl interview on Sunday for daring to demand answers about the Benghazi terrorist attack and the IRS targeting conservative groups.

O’Reilly said, “Your detractors believe that you did not tell the world it was a terror attack because your campaign didn’t want that out. That’s what they believe.” Obama ranted in reply: “And they believe it because folks like you are telling them that.” O’Reilly responded: “No, I’m not telling them that, I’m asking you whether you were told it was a terror attack.”

Minutes later, while O’Reilly was asking about the IRS scandal, Obama tried to dismiss the topic: “Folks have, again, had multiple hearings on this. I mean, these kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them.

As the Conservative Tribune puts it:

Obama did in this interview what Obama has always done: Shift the blame to someone else. If something goes wrong in his presidency, it’s the fault of Republicans, racism, Fox News, or anything else that seems like a good scapegoat.

On Obama’s desk, there must be a new riff on Truman’s sign that reads:

THE BUCK STOPS ANYWHERE BUT HERE

Or:

THE BUCK STOPS WITH FOX NEWS

I don’t have the appropriate words in my vocabulary to describe what I think of this kind of behavior.
