Obama levels fire at Benghazi critics

Source: CNN

2:01 p.m. ET: Question on the attack in Benghazi, Libya: "Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham both said today that they want to have Watergate style hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and said that if you nominate Susan Rice to be secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. Sen. Graham said he simply doesn't trust Amb. Rice after what she said about Benghazi. I'd like your reaction to that. Would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that?"

2:04 p.m. ET: Obama gets fired up defending his ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice (who is considered a top choice to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state.)

"She has done exemplary work. She has represented the United States and our interests in the United Nations with skill… and grace. As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided before. If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after someone they should go after me."

2:07 p.m. ET: Asked a follow up on Benghazi, Obama says he told American security personnel to do "everything they needed" to keep diplomats safe.

4. I think he was pissed

And rightfully so, at the effort to scapegoat Rice and make a big deal out of nothing.

3. Take the man at his word

He has a mandate to work for the American people, no drama is his motto and people like the republicans (all ) keep the bull shit (sorry ) but they do keep it going and just still trying to get the better of the black man that won the White House. It's time they get over themselves and work for the people like they were elected to do or come next election/s they will be out. President Obama is a man of his word when there is no obstructions set up by the spoiled brats party.
