Telling the truth, for one:
The firing offense, I guess, was the operator admitting to him that no one likes Healthcare.gov. That’s so patently true that the president himself held a press conference in the Rose Garden earlier this week to acknowledge it, but it’s one thing for him to say it in the course of a Popeil-esque pitch to buy insurance and another for an O-Care worker to admit it flatly to — gasp — right-wing talk radio. That goes to show you how politicized this ostensibly neutral government program is. In fact, I assume the real reason she was canned was to retaliate against Hannity by victimizing a sympathetic blue-collar worker and then hoping/trusting that he’d take the blame for it somehow.
With EdselCare already engulfed in flames, what difference at this point does it make?
HANNITY: They’re really telling you to tell us to check back in on the website in off-hours. Does that mean that I should go on at like three in the morning?
OPERATOR: It was saying early in the morning and late at night, but some people say they do that and still can’t get in.
HANNITY: So people are reporting to you the real deal?
OPERATOR: Yes sir, they are.
HANNITY: Have you ever got anybody that really likes it yet?
OPERATOR: Umm, no, not really.
It was the laugh wot done it. Obama is always telling people not to watch Fox, and when Sean Hannity laughs at him, somebody’s gotta pay.
Meanwhile, here’s what doesn’t get you fired:
(CBS News) We’re hearing for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year.
He calls himself Morgan Jones, a pseudonym to protect his safety.
Jones says he was annoyed that the State Department wouldn’t allow his guards to carry guns. As the attack began on Sept. 11, one of the guards called Jones, who was living nearby.
“I could hear gunshots, and I — and he said, ‘There’s — there’s men coming into the mission,’” Jones said. “His voice, he was — he was scared. You could tell he was really scared, and he was running. You could tell he was running.”
His first thought was for his American friends, the State Department agents, pinned down inside the compound, and he couldn’t believe it when one of them answered his phone.
“I said, ‘What’s going on?’ He said, ‘We’re getting attacked.’ And I said, ‘How many?’ And he said, ‘They’re all over the compound,’” Jones said. “And — I was shocked. I didn’t know what to say. And I said, ‘Well, just keep fighting. I’m on my way.’”
Morgan’s guards, unarmed and terrified, were surrounded by heavily armed gunmen, but they still sounded the alarm.
“They said, ‘We’re here to kill Americans, not Libyans,’ so they’d give them a good beating, pistol whip them, beat them with their rifles and let them go,” Jones said.
An independent investigation in Benghazi found the mission security was grossly inadequate and that requests for additional security were not approved at State Department headquarters.
You can’t be half as tired reading this as I am of typing it, but it must be restated: most corrupt president ever.
