Former Obama Spokesman Mocks Benghazi Hearing as Conspiracy Theorist 'Amateur Hour'
Twitter ^ | Wednesday, May 8, 2013 | Kristinn Taylor

Posted on 05/08/2013 7:16:05 AM PDT by kristinn

Former Obama National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor has let loose on Twitter this morning, mocking the Benghazi hearing today as "amateur hour."

Vietor also mocked the hearings as conspiracy theories on par with Area 51 and the moon landings conspiracy theories:

Heard that Rep. Cummings asked Rep. Issa to include Thomas Pickering, cochair of ARB report in today's hearing, but Issa refused. #Benghazi

Why on earth would Issa refuse to let the cochair of an independent review board on #Benghazi testify at his hearing on the subject?

Could it be that today's #Benghazi hearing has nothing to do with fact-finding but is just the latest shamefully politicized Issa attack

@GrahamBlog @joenbc can you explain why Issa refused to allow Tom Pickering to be a witness today? He cochaired #Benghazi review

Reporters are very excited that Rep Chaffetz will be at today's #Benghazi hearing. Maybe he'll disclose more CIA facilities! Amateur hour.

Heard @jaketapper is chasing down rumor that House Oversight Cmte ran out of chairs. Why else would Issa refuse to include Pickering today?

Hey @Milbank what do you think Rep. Chaffetz will disclose today? Moon landing photos? Map of Area 51? http://goo.gl/W7NuW

This is illustrative of the contempt they have for Americans in the Obama administration. Vietor just left the White House two months ago. Have no doubt he's speaking for Obama with these comments.

March 6, 2013 background article on the punk Tommy Vietor:

Tommy Vietor started working for Barack Obama when he was still Senator Obama--well before he became a presidential candidate--and until Friday, the 32-year-old Vietor hadn't stopped. His first job for Obama was as the driver of a press van, and he rose up the ranks through the 2008 campaign, and then the White House press office, to become the National Security Council spokesman.

Now leaving the White House to open a political communications firm with the president's departing speechwriter Jon Favreau, Vietor says it's been the privilege of a lifetime to work for the president.

The Chicago thugs in the White House will do everything possible to smear and discredit these witnesses and of course the MSM will be fully complicit and will aid and abet this smear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Amateur hour, eh? What a cute turn of phrase. Little Tommy was an Obama stooge spokeman? He might do real well if he applied for an MSM job. They sling the same line of BS.

Not surprising that one of Obama’s minions thinks the death of an American ambassador is funny.

Here we go, the concerted effort to try and marginalize anyone talking about Benghazi. Really, when does Lanny Davis now start popping up on talk shows?

Crazy, bitter partisans

Kooky birthers

Racists

Obama Haters

Won't wash. We don't care how much you deploy the “Nuts or Sluts” strategy! Who told the possible rescue force to “STAND DOWN”?

Now at least we will have an idea of the Obama playbook to deal with the hearings and evidence.

“Amatuer Hour”, “Political”, “Witch hunt”

The list, Ping

Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

Victor forgets one extremely important fact. Obama and Hillary stood next to four caskets and lied to the American people about what happened in Benghazi, resulting in the four corpses in those caskets. They had refused to save them when they were begging for help. That is unforgivable and impeachable.

Lets face it. The media will make sure this hearing will go the way of the Gosnell trial. The media will bury it and 95% of the people in this country won’t even know there was a hearing.

Dear Mr. Idiot.

I believe it is because he would like to hear the truth this time.

Alan (The Fish) Colmes was on FOX this morning, spewing much of the same pre-spin needed to discredit these hearings even before they start.

He use the words “witch hunt” quite often, never bothering to consider that there’s no need for that. We know exactly who the witch is, her phone rang on 9/11 and she couldn’t be bothered to answer.

“Amateur Hour(s)” occurred during the AQ attack at Benghazi when dealing with a life/death circumstance for Americans was definitely beyond yellow-bellied Muslim-sympathizer Zero’s community organizing experience and Hillary didn’t answer the phone, long before 3 a.m. (or maybe Huma answered and decided not to pass on the message).

This is so sick. Americans died. And Obama and Hillary were to inept or simply didn't care, and people died.

Some terrorist supporters must have laughed at our government's ineptness and said, "Let the white boys die."

‘Amateur hour’ is what ‘we the people’ have had to endure every second of every day that your usurping Chicago ghetto thug boss has been occupying the WH.

GTH!

If there is nothing to hide as the obama crowd claims then why are we not hearing from the Survivors of the attack and the Military Commanders being given immunity to testify who were closest and contacted regarding the Stand Down order? They are afraid? Yes the obama crowd is afraid!

Who told the possible rescue force to “STAND DOWN”?

Also...

WHY was Ambassador Stevens in a terrorist hotbed such as Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11?

WHO specifically refused Ambassador Stevens' prior requests for additional security?

WHY were quick-reaction forces NOT available in a newly transitioned, highly unstable Arab country chock-full of jihadis?

Apart from the active war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan, Libya was the most volatile country for American diplomats at the time of the attack. At best this entire debacle constitutes gross negligence on the part of the Administration.

Having Pickering testify today would distract from the focus of the inquiry. The Democrats were hoping Pickering could intimidate today’s witnesses. Pickering and Admiral Mullen deserve their own hearing where they can explain the huge gaps in the whitewash report they produced. They could also explain why they shouldn’t be indicted for obstruction of justice for their part in this conspiracy.
