Bob Schieffer unloads on a White House underling asking “why are you here? Why isn’t the White House Chief of Staff here?”
Bob Schieffer is generally a staunch ally of the president, or anyone else in the Obama administration.
However, for the second Sunday in a row he is fed up with the White House’s talking points concerning what happened at our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last September.
Schieffer’s impatience boiled over when Obama senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer gave stock answers to questions about the three crises facing the President.
Schieffer accused his guest of taking "exactly the approach that the Nixon administration took" and finally scolding him by asking, "Why are you here today? Why isn't the White House Chief of Staff here to tell us what happened?"
Schieffer must have been having an Alzheimer's moment forgetting his usual habit of coddling anyone sent out by the Obama administration.
Mr. Schieffer was dead right on one thing - this was not Watergate.
Benghazi was many times worse than Watergate!
Four Americans died at Benghazi.
