Yesterday, the White House released 100 pages of emails about the Benghazi talking points and announced the resignation of the acting IRS Commissioner, but our friend
MargaretGretchen Carlson from Fox News wasn't fooled by Obama's clever transparency strategy:
GRETCHEN CARLSON: Let's talk a little about what happened yesterday, because a lot happened yesterday. The president made an announcement that he was going to be coming out just after six o'clock to talk about the IRS scandal and that situation and then right before then, 15 minutes before that, they released 100 pages of emails having to do with the Benghazi talking points but what was in those emails and was this just a strategy to try and potentially confuse Americans out there about these three scandals going on right now, to sort of put a whole bunch of information out there and see which one ends up the headline.As Carlson is right to argue, the only reasonable conclusion to draw from the fact that Obama fired the IRS's top official and released newly-declassified documents that Republicans have been demanding ... is that he was trying to cover up his scandals. What other possible explanation could there be for firing the IRS chief and releasing emails that Republicans had been lying about?
I have to say, this is really good stuff from Carlson—it really makes you appreciate the national treasure that is Fox News. What would we do without them? And when will they finally get the recognition they deserve?
1:23 PM PT: OMG, I wrote Margaret Carlson instead of Gretchen Carlson. What an embarrassing slip-up. In my defense, I was too busy being bamboozled by the bright lights of 'Bama's document dump.
