President Obama will talk about the debate tonight, the weather, his wife — anything but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s decision to take responsibility for the security failures ahead of the September 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
Obama gave reporters the cold shoulder when asked about Clinton’s statement. The questions came from three different reporters, per the pool report.
This pool, standing about 50 feet away, had this exchange:
Reporter: “How are you feeling about tonight?”
Obama, smiling: “I feel fabulous. Look at this beautiful day.”
Reporter: “Are you aware Michelle voted for you yesterday?”
Obama, turning to yell back: “Thank goodness!”
Reporter: “Is Hillary to blame for Benghazi?”
Obama: Silence. Kept walking.
