Stephanie Cutter's Gaffe Reveals Her True Beliefs

A Kinsleyan Gaffe is a statement in which a politician reveals her real, but repulsive, beliefs.

Stephanie Cutter just committed a horrific one.

She views the abject failure of Obama to provide adequate security in Benghazi -- due to his naive view that a disarmed consulate would deter armed aggression -- as a purely "political" issue.

A "political" issue to be spun, reframed, recontextualized.

A "political" issue that just happens to have a bodycount.

This explains why the Obama Campaign lied about the attack for two weeks: Because, as Stephanie Cutter just told you, they view this as a "political" issue to be spun and won.

This explains why the Obama Campaign lies to the face of the mother of Sean Smith. Because, as Stephanie Cutter just told you, Sean Smith's death is just a "political" issue to be won in a newscycle.

This explains why Obama jetted off to a Vegas fundraiser on the day of Chris Stevens', Sean Smiths', and two SEALs' murder. Because, as Stephanie Cutter just told you, this is just a "political issue" and for Obama to cancel political plans would suggest it might be more than that.

This explains why Hillary Clinton lied about the cause of Chris Stevens' death, just yards away from his coffin. Because, as Stephanie Cutter just told you, this is just a "political issue," a distraction from the only thing that matters, the reelection of Barack Hussein Obama.

This explains why the Obama Administration claims its investigation into why they themselves refused completely reasonable security upgrades cannot be completed... until after the election. Because, as Stephanie Cutter just told you, the catastrophic decision to pursue a Let a Smile Be Your Bodyguard folly is just a "political" issue to be reframed for media soundbites.

This explains a full month of lies, evasions, and complete refusal to admit any sort of responsibility. Because, as Stephanie Cutter just told you, the bodies of four Americans are just a "political" issue, just "bumps in the road," to be buried and forgotten.

Not a Gaffe: A Planned Administration Strategy. As @verumserum notes, Jay Carney trotted this "politicization" claim yesterday.
