Washington Examiner: Obamacare, Benghazi mark shaky start to president's second term

Obama's evasion prompted a blistering statement by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.: “Over the past two weeks, I have sent four letters requesting that this administration make information available about how lawyers — who already have security clearances and are representing Benghazi whistle-blowers — can be cleared to fully hear their clients' stories. I have yet to receive any response from the Obama administration.

“Even if the president really doesn't know anything about someone wanting to come forward, his position should be that whistle-blowers deserve protection and that anyone who has different information about Benghazi is free to come forward to Congress. The president's unwillingness to commit himself to protecting whistle-blowers only aids those in his administration who are intimidating them.”

Nothing could render Obama a lame duck quicker than an Obamacare train wreck that undermines his signal legislative victory, even as revelations by Benghazi survivors point to a colossal failure by his “leading from behind” policies overseas.
