A Largely Irrelevant Fact!

Senior adviser to the  President, Dan Pfeiffer appeared on Fox News Sunday and informed host Chris Wallace that the President's whereabouts during the events of 9-11 in Benghazi, Libya were beside the point, unimportant.
WALLACE: But with due respect, you didn't answer my question. What did the president do that night?

PFEIFFER: He was kept -- he was in constant touch that night with his national security team and kept up to date with the events as they were happening.

WALLACE: When you say his national security team, he didn't talk to the secretary of state, except for the one time when the first attack was over. He didn't talk to the secretary of defense. He didn't talk to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Who was he talking to?

PFEIFFER: He was talking to his national security staff, his National Security Council, the people who keep him up to date about briefings as they happen.

WALLACE: Was he in the Situation Room?

PFEIFFER: He was kept up to date throughout the day.

WALLACE: Do you not know whether he was in the Situation Room?

PFEIFFER: I don't remember what room the president was in on that night. And that's a largely irrelevant fact.
Though the fact that the President refuses to reveal his  location that day/night is troubling, there is a case to be made that Pfeiffer is right. Obama's location is largely not important, not only in the case of Benghazi, but in virtually every other scandalous event of his Presidency.  There's little indication that the outcome in Benghazi would been better had the President been in the "Situation Room" nor would more time in the Oval Office have improved the Affordable Care Act.  After all, when you're perniciously inept, you can make half assed, wrong decisions ANYWHERE. Thus, Obama, whether on the golf course, at a campaign event, or in the Situation Room, is successfully destroying this country .  .  . And THAT'S a relevant fact!
