George Wil: Administration's Claim That Benghazi Was a "Movie Review Conducted with Rocket-Propelled Grenades and Mortars" Is Laughable

And says Jay Carney's usefulness to this Administration is "diminishing rapidly," due to his hapless deceit on issues.

Dennis Kucinich, meanwhile, seems to be on the "liberal" side of the "liberal/leftist" line. A true liberal does not bless dishonesty and corruption simply because it may aid his politics; the leftist does. Kucinich declares that "of course" the Benghazi Talking Points were "scrubbed" for political reasons, and then speaks a very simple truth about the IRS scandal:

“We can not have a condition in America where peoples politics are the basis for IRS attacks.” …

Wallace countered, asking if Kucinich thought the IRS’s missteps were straight up political targeting:

“How can it not be?” Kucinich concluded.

Mickey Kaus, meanwhile, reminds everyone that Democratic bureaucrats did this under Clinton, too, and do not need to be instructed to do this -- apparently they all want to do it.

Thus, it seems to me, a law-abiding liberal President should send the word down from on high that such behavior is illegal and unethical and unamerican -- indeed, it's Soviet-- and will therefore be prosecuted to the maximum effect the law allows.

And if he doesn't do that, he's blessing the Soviet-style assault on citizens.
