We keep hearing from the president and some congressmen that Benghazi, Libya, is a sideshow. If it were about who changed talking points or security, I would agree.
Where are we now in this morass of Obama administration scandals? We have The Associated Press imbroglio. We have the Benghazi imbroglio. We have the Internal Revenue Service imbroglio.
House Speaker John A. Boehner says it "really is inconceivable" that President Obama wouldn't have known about the unfolding IRS scandal before learning about it from reporters, as the White House has claimed.
As of Wednesday night, more than 2,200 individuals impacted by the tornadoes in Oklahoma had registered with FEMA for direct assistance available through the major disaster declaration provided Monday night, a White House official said.

During his 2012 campaign for re-election, President Obama and his team accused Mitt Romney of "betting against America" for investing in offshore accounts. If Mr. Romney "bet against America," so did the family of Penny Pritzker, Mr. Obama's nominee for commerce secretary.
A key House panel pushed through legislation Wednesday calling on the Obama administration to significantly broaden U.S. sanctions on Iran, just as the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency released a report saying the Islamic republic's nuclear program had made measurable advances.

Rep. Tom Cole, Oklahoma Republican, said Wednesday that he was confident Oklahoma will get the help it needs in the wake of the deadly tornado that swept through the state, adding that "these are awfully tough people, and we've done this before, sadly, so we're pretty good at dealing with it."
While some White House officials, including press secretary Jay Carney, have tried to minimize the impact of the IRS political-targeting scandal, saying the abuses ended in May 2012 and the practice is a thing of the past, victims say they are still feeling the impact.
The United States and several key allies sought Wednesday a strategy to end Syria's civil war, their united efforts unable at the moment to stem the Assad regime's military gains and Washington still unwilling to join those providing the rebels with lethal military aid.
"Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive."
Fox News anchor Bret Baier says that in addition to seizing the phone records of Fox reporter James Rosen, the Department of Justice seized the records of his parents as well in another twist to the still-unraveling saga.
Anthony Weiner thinks his brief absence from elected office means the public will forget his disrespect and disdain for women. He's wrong. He didn't just treat strange women like sex objects, he sexually harassed female journalists who work on Capitol Hill. Two of us work at The Washington Times.
