Democrats on Sunday morning's news shows appeared to back away from President Barack Obama on his administration's response to the Benghazi terror attack and his blurry "red line" on Syria's chemical weapons.

On Fox News Sunday, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) admitted that the Obama administration's talking points on Benghazi, edited to remove references to extremism and blaming protests against an anti-Islamic YouTube video for the violence, were "false. They were wrong. There were no protests outside the Benghazi compound."

On CBS News' Face the Nation, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, also admitted that the administration's talking points were wrong, though putting the changes down to the fact that the intelligence changed over time in a "volatile situation."

Meanwhile, on Syria, former Rep. Jane Harman, a prominent California Democraet, acknowledged on NBC News' Meet the Press that the Obama administration had been slow to respond: "I wish we had acted sooner."

Republicans remain divided on the Syria issue, but on Benghazi the caucus anticipates a week of testimony that will prove deeply damaging to the Obama administration, as well as the media's attempts to protect him. ;

I'm skeptical anything could come of this. The media dogs know they are on the hook and are in this full tilt. I'm thinking they want to appear involved in the story but in reality just want to get in to guide the meme. Taking credit all the while doing damage control.
I'd love to see him go down in flames but all the lies up to this point don't seem to bother the faithful.
Maybe they see the coming Ocare meltdown and want to set the stage for Hillary? Real journalism.....I doubt it. Will it blow up, I hope so. So far the waffen SS prog machine is invincible.
