People died in Benghazi and because of the VA cooking their books. Lois Lerner took the 5th and more revelations come out every day on the IRS targeting of conservative groups. There is nothing phony about any of this.
Via The Hill:
President Obama charged that his Republican opponents had “nothing to offer except cynicism and fear and frustration” during a fundraiser Thursday in Minnesota.
The fundraiser capped off a day Obama spent with Rebekah Erler, a working mother who wrote the president to detail her financial struggle.
“It moved me,” Obama said of the letter, adding that he only went into politics to help people like her.
Obama said he remembered what it felt like to be struggling to figure out “how you lead a good life and raise your kids, not looking to get wildly wealthy… trying to make ends meet.”
That’s what we should be talking about every day in Washington,” he said. “We talk about everything else. .. We talk about phony scandals. We talk about Benghazi. and we talk about polls and we talk about the tea party and we talk about the latest controversy... We don’t talk about her.”
