‘Fabulous’ Obama Dodges Questions on Clinton’s Benghazi Admission (Update: He ‘Kept Walking’)

Is this leadership?
President Obama said he feels “fabulous” ahead of Tuesday night’s debate on Long Island.
Walking with David Plouffe and Anita Dunn at the Kingsmill resort here, Obama told reporters he feels good.
“I feel fabulous,” he told reporters who stood for 30 minutes in the sunshine awaiting the photo-op. “Look at this beautiful day.”
Obama then ignored a question, like the first two, shouted from 50 feet away, about whether Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was to blame for the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
In Peru for a regional drug summit, Secretary of State Clinton last night accepted responsibility for the lack of security at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya which was sacked by terrorists on 9-11-12. Clinton’s move has only served to draw attention back to the Obama administation’s decision to blame the deadly attack on a YouTube movie, when it was clear within 24 hours that the attack was a pre-planned military-style terrorist strike.
Pool: “Reporter: ‘Is Hillary to blame for Benghazi?’ Obama: Silence. Kept walking.”
