Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter was tragically wrong when she accused Romney and Ryan of making a political issue of Benghazi. But now that she has fired off the accusation, and Biden had his say in Thursday night’s debate, Romney and Ryan are free to talk about Benghazi all they want.
And they are. Here’s Romney from earlier today in Richmond, VA.
Cutter’s and Biden’s comments have opened Pandora’s Box. The media that is already skeptically fact-checking the Obama administration on this will not be able to deny coverage when Romney and Ryan directly criticize and allege cover-up. The story is too big even for the New York Times to wish away.
What I’m saying is, break out your popcorn.
