Asked which “phony scandals” Pres Obama frequently decries, Jay Carney cited Benghazi and the IRS.

Classy as usual. I’d like to remind Carney and his boss that there’s nothing phony about dead Americans or the IRS intimidating law abiding citizens for political reasons. The more Obama administration officials claim these scandals are “phony,” the more incriminating they are becoming to themselves.

You know how you can tell Obama was directly involved with IRS targeting? He went from saying it was “inexcusable” to saying it is “phony”
