MacCallum crushes with Benghazi boom-question; Hume calls out Obama admin

Wait … not a crappy YouTube video?! Who would have thunk it?

More from Fox News:

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a “terrorist attack,” declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president’s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

Lies and damn lies from the Obama administration once again.

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum took to Twitter with this Benghazi boom-question:

Nailing? Achieved once again.!/Anazdavid/status/423122238074671104
Spin is too kind of a way to say it. Fellow Fox Newser Brit Hume sums up what it really is quite handily:

Dead-on, sir. As always.

WaPost: ‘4 Pinocchios’ for Dems saying the GOP cut Ebola funding

Glenn Kessler in today’s Washington Post has a must-read fact check where he awards 4 Pinocchios to Dems and their ads claiming “that only Republicans are to blame for cuts to Ebola research.” Here’s his conclusion:

On many levels, this line of attack is absurd.

Obama’s Republican predecessor oversaw big increases in public-health sector spending, and both Democrats and Republicans in recent years have broadly supported efforts to rein in federal spending. Sequestration resulted from a bipartisan agreement. In some years, Congress has allocated more money for NIH and CDC than the Obama administration requested. Meanwhile, contrary to the suggestion of the DCCC ad, there never was a specific vote on funding to prevent Ebola.

There’s no doubt that spending has been cut, or at least failed to keep pace with inflation, but the fingerprints of both parties are on the knives. This blame game earns Four Pinocchios.

As you might imagine, conservatives have greeted this fact check as welcome news:

Washington Post fact checker notes it was the Obama WH, not Republicans, that proposed cuts to NIH's budget.

@brianjameswalsh @GlennKesslerWP So WH strategy for Ebola: blame Rs in lieu of leading, fixing the problem.

WaPo Fact Checker: President George W. Bush, a Republican, is responsible for significantly boosting NIH’s funding

@DanaPerino @GlennKesslerWP that is the most low down vicious lie I've ever heard. Whoever came up with that has no morals sorry if believed

And we like this idea:

@DanaPerino @GlennKesslerWP Might think of adding a 5th Pinocchio level just for those who truly deserve whacko level comments.
