Fox News Host Thinks Meteorologists Discussing Climate Change With Obama Should Ask About Benghazi

dana-perino-idiotLiberals often joke that Fox News pundits will do whatever they can to interject Benghazi into just about any topic.  Case in point: Dana Perino of Fox News’ The Five hoped that meteorologists who were convening with President Obama to discuss a new report about climate change will ask him about Benghazi.

Perino said, “Tomorrow, President Obama is going to do interviews with meteorologists all across the country about a new climate change report.  I hope they ask him about Benghazi.  Like, the weatherman from Montana should ask him about Benghazi.  That would be great.  I dare you.”

Because, you know, when experts have gathered with the President of the United States to discuss what we need to do in order to save our planet from global catastrophe – they should really waste time feeding into partisan right-wing rhetoric.

When is it going to sink in with these people that the vast majority of Americans couldn’t care less about what talking points were used immediately following the Benghazi attacks?  The only people who care about this nonsense are people who would have never voted for President Obama in the first place, and that’s exactly the audience to which the conservative media is pandering.

They seem to think that there’s some giant conspiracy going on because nobody besides them is reporting on Benghazi.  But the truth is hardly anyone is reporting on Benghazi because there’s nothing of importance on which to report.  Conservatives are throwing a giant hissy fit because their fake outrage isn’t being matched by those of us who refuse to buy into their propaganda.

That’s how conspiracy theorists work.  The fact that what they feel is being “covered up” isn’t being reported on “proves” that whoever they’re accusing of covering something up “obviously has something to hide.”  Then if there’s any evidence disproving their nonsense, well, “that’s just all part of the cover up.”

The bottom line is Fox News desperately wants people to care about their propaganda concerning Benghazi, only there’s one problem – we’ve already mourned over the tragic loss of those four Americans.  We’ve also already read the numerous reports faulting both Congress and the White House for not doing enough to prevent the attack.  But in the two years since the attack, most of us have also done something else – we’ve moved on.

But that’s something conservatives can’t do.  Because when it comes to Benghazi, it’s just fake outrage over a situation they want so badly to remain relevant because it’s about the only thing they have to use against Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    Fax is making itself a laughing stock – dont stop them now !

    Keep it up Fox – your viewers will be totally sick of the sight of you soon…LOL

  • Jim Bean

    The ‘vast majority’ of Americans DO care about Benghazi because they DO care about the integrity of their government leaders. Its only the Leftists who view that as unimportant.

    • Thomas Casey

      Sorry Jim, you and a few idiots don’t comprise the “vast majority”. You never have, you never will. Speak for yourself. That’s why the “vast majority” got destroyed in the last election, because they were the majority, right? Yeah….no.

      • Jim Bean

        “Destroyed’ is a term that only a calcified liberal would ascribe to a three percent margin.

      • Dave Bowen

        Well in 2000 we were told by you conservatives the electoral vote is all that matters so actually it was about a 23% margin and in anyone’s book that is utter destruction.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        it only matters when they win it

      • Edward Krebbs

        And when GWB described a margin of less than 1 percent, it was enormous political capital that gave him the mandate to do anything he wanted ?

      • Peter

        And how many Americans got killed due to Bush’s politics compared to Americans killed due to Obama’s politics??

      • Jim Bean

        What right wing nut said Americans killed under Bush were ‘unimportant?’

      • regressive teaparty trash

        their quiet was deafening

      • regressive teaparty trash

        281 to 191 is NOT a 3 pct difference jimbo

        we HAVE spoken. See you in 2 years!

    • Zachary Zasquatch Gangemi

      No jimmy they really don’t. The sad fact is that this was never a cover up, this was never a scandal. This was a tragedy that happened over seas, like one of the many that happened under George W Bush’s presidency. Please though, if I am so misguided, please tell me what was the conspiracy?

      • Jim Bean

        The conspiracy was conceiving the public about the nature of the attack to shield Obama (who claimed he had all the terrorists on the run) from additional scrutiny prior to the election.

      • Sunnysmom

        Benghazi and global warming are mutually exclusive issues. Why do we need to lump them together as Ms. Perino suggests? To be douchebags and solve NOTHING is why. Typical Fox playbook.

      • Jim Bean

        If not Fox News, who would you recommend I rely upon to drill down this administration and demand answers to all the questions raised by these scandals? Full and complete disclosure would bring closure to all these issues but, for some reason, the administration does not want to disclose and much of the media want people to stop asking questions. Seems unhealthy and suspicious to me.

      • Taperat

        Do you really think Fox News cares about the ‘truth’? There’s absolutely NO doubt that Fox is nothing but a huge shill for the right wingers. Where was Fox after the ‘Aluminum Tubes’ lie perpetrated by the Bush administration? Somehow a definite lie that caused a 10 year war and thousands of deaths was no big deal to them, but this little ginned-up ‘scandal’ is reminiscent of Watergate.

      • Jim Bean

        I think Fox News is the only major news organization demanding that the Obama administration produce ALL the existing evidence and within that lies the truth. If I am wrong, feel free to enlighten me.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        been produced already—- with taxpayer dollars being squandered by the white trash scumbags in the tea party

      • Sunnysmom

        Keep demanding full disclosure, dissent is patriotic. However, her “joking” about kitchen-sinking Benghazi with the meteorologists is just stupid and petty. Again, it solves nothing and is junior high logic at best.

      • Jim Bean

        Its junior high logic to the same extent that using Bush/Iraq to absolve Obama of Benghazi is.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        comparing the two is typical of alcoholic white trash who do NOT look at facts

        jimbo equals stupidity and failure as a man

      • regressive teaparty trash

        hey weak boy—
        in this country we are innocent ’til proven guilty. your sh*tbag tea party white trash scum have had 18 months and countless EXPENSIVE committees– produced everything: no coverup

      • regressive teaparty trash

        sorry jimbo———— 18 months of the tea party white trash regressives wasting taxpayer money ( see: fiscally prudent republicans) in many many hearing has generated nothing. If ISSA and his merry men are SERIOUS about a FULL scale investigation then why don’t they spend some of THEIR money and remove the burden from US taxpayers?? that way ISSA and CO can control who is ON the committee and the voting–
        damn!!! wanna bet THAT never happens????

      • regressive teaparty trash

        hey scum—————- don’t U like my idea of your small dicked losers in the tea party using THEIR money instead of OUR money??? we LOVE how U never comment on REAL stuff

      • Jim Bean

        You don’t have any money and its the TeaParty’s money that IS being used cause they’re the ones paying the taxes. And that doesn’t make it ‘your’ money. So put a cork in it.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        I don’t have any money?????
        Hmmmmmmmmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        then who’s bank account(s) and Interactive Brokerage account do I use?
        ( we wont talk about my last 13 tax forms)

      • regressive teaparty trash

        and I do appreciate thy alcoholic NON reply of my ‘pithy’ comment

      • Jim Bean

        Ever notice how many of your ever-changing avatars objectify women? That’s why I like you so much. You come to the party righteous, naked and unafraid. You illustrate how liberals actually look when all the lipstick is removed.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        (a) some crybaby rightwing nefling claimed my girlfriend is a “tranny” so I wanted to show him the sexiest “tranny” I know of,,,,
        (b) you didn’t reply when I ignored your comment claiming I have no money(!!!)
        (c) objectify women?? hey james: here is a (very old and time-tested) truism: women LOVE that — especially from the guy they have deep feelings for
        (d) im not ‘righteous’ as that is “SAVED” for the idiotic Christians…………… im simply armed with a lot of reading and facts. ( lipstick? nope– cherry ice cream w/ chocolate truffles)

      • Edward Krebbs

        So if you care about Benghazi, have you looked up who voted to decrease the budget for embassy security resulting in a lower level of security at all embassies ? And are you asking the same question about embassy attacks under GWB and RWR ?

    • Pipercat

      The vast majority of Americans think Benghazi plays bass for The Roots…

      • regressive teaparty trash

        :))

    • Sophie Kendi

      Funny how that same “vast majority” isn’t/ never was too concerned about the thousands of American lives lost in a senseless war even after it became evident that the intelligence was fictitious and no WMD’s were ever found. Integrity of government leaders? Start by investigating the perpetrators of a war that cost the country billions of dollars and massive loss of lives.

      • Jim Bean

        Lets do both. Lets not let Bush or Obama off the hook.

    • regressive teaparty trash

      the vast majority of white trash regressive “Christian” scumbags who watch FOX “news” exclusively and go to a Caucasian church to beg

        blondie; typical crybaby regressive white trash tea party scum who makes bogus profile here and vanished after comment

  • Sunnysmom

    With all due respect to the innocent lives lost at Benghazi, if scientists are even half right about global warming (and I believe they are), further inquisition into that attack is futile. Existential human issues are kinda important Dana. They are mutually exclusive and not a time to play politics for fun..umkay?

  • Pipercat

    Caleb Rossiter: PhD, policy analysis, Cornell University, MA, mathematics, American University… and these credentials make him an expert on climate science how precisely?

    Just goes to show how two wrongs, a fallacy and an agenda make a “The (F)ive” argument!

  • Edward Krebbs

    So I guess Faux thinks they are experts on Benghazi and that Benghazi was caused by global warming ?

    Meteorologists, as opposed to climatologists, as a group tend to deny the idea of man-made global warming. Their expertise is in LOCAL weather. So from the start this sounds like an attempt to build some bridges and get input from all groups. But not a meeting with the experts.

    • regressive teaparty trash

      the blaze at Benghazi was the turning point to adding carbon smoke ET AL to our atmosphere
      =================================================
      saw that on FOX “news” ; so it must be true :))

  • regressive teaparty trash

    I would be better served asking Obama about danas very small/ non existent breasts. after all; if the FIVE crybabies can interject such a non sequitur as THEIRS to the vocal foray- why cant I?
    ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,come to think of it: maybe asking about GOV Christie and Michael (R) grimm would extrapolate nicely
