Skip to comments.Video: Obama now ducking questions on security failures at Benghazi consulate

Via BuzzFeed, simple question from the Univision moderators: Why wasnt your administration better prepared to secure Americas embassies on September 11th? The response, true to form, is nearly six minutes of meandering about how its important to stay engaged in the Middle East, how the Mohammed movie is offensive but shouldnt be a pretext for violence, how hes decimated Al Qaedas leadership, etc etc etc everything except an answer to the question that was asked. The closest he gets is insisting that they redoubled their security efforts afterward, which is super but not much of a consolation to Chris Stevens, Id imagine. And if youre thinking maybe hell address this at length later, go watch the video of Ben LaBolt that Guy Bensons posted. For obvious reasons, the Foreign Policy President will not be speaking about this particular foreign-policy achievement. In fact, according to The Cable blog at Foreign Policy, the Marines arent expecting to deploy a security detail to Libya for a good five years or so even though Chris Stevens himself reportedly worried for months before his death about being on an Al Qaeda hit list. Why the Romney campaign isnt destroying Obama over this instead of hammering at that old redistribution audio, Ill never understand. Presumably, after the media wet itself over his earlier Libya-related attack on O, Team Mitt has simply decided to back off.

Shoulda stayed on Letterman!

Could the National Security briefings somehow have muzzled Romney on the subject?
Univision has more guts than the rest of the MSM combined.
This should have been the whole press corps 10 days ago
The press corps is behaving like a corpseman.
zombies with cameras!
It once was so simple for Obama he could say, “I killed Osama”. And now he can’t mention foreign policy.
ROOFTOP OF THE US EMBASSY IN TUNIS, TUNISIA JUST TODAY, WITH THEM WAVING THE BLACK SALAFIST AL QAEDA FLAG IN VICTORY, NOTE THE BROKEN GLASS. CAIRO SPEECH MY FOOT. ARAB SPRING MY ASS
Why was Valerie Jarrett afforded better protection in DC than Amb. Stevens in Benghazi?
A search for “Univision” in the posts yields only this one entry, yet the Univision interview yesterday (?) was certainly not favorable to Obama, and might even swing Hispanic votes given the way he ducked the questions.
He was directly asked about his promise to get an immigration bill passed, and his failure to do so, or even attempt one, as promised. This has got to have some impact on the Hispanic vote.
But no stories here, except this one which doesn’t really get to the meat of the interview. Must mean there are no MSM stories to link up to? No surprise there.
