The headline to the story in this morning’s “Tampa Daily Megaphone” about Barack Obama’s recent bob and weave press conference was, “President cautious on scandal, FBI.” I’m glad to see the noun scandal used, as l’affaire Benghazi certainly is one.
But cautious is hardly the adjective I would have chosen for yesterday’s exercise in covering the presidential six. Others much closer to the mark include but are not limited to: evasive, vague, deceptive, equivocal, duplicitous, disingenuous, and misleading. Alert TAS readers can certainly add to this list.
But our rookie, soon to be sophomore, president is endlessly glib, and most of the press corps housebroken. So our Barry once again is able to hide the pea with the use of footwork that would have made Sugar Ray Robinson proud.
