Ed Henry struck a nerve.
Here he is at today’s White House Briefing with Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney where he asked if the four State Department officials thrown under the bus to try and put the Benghazi Scandal to rest is the end of accountability. Henry reminded Carney that before the election, Obama and Hillary Clinton said they took responsibility for what happened, but now it appears, others are “taking the fall.”
Carney did not like that, and bristled at the suggestion Obama was trying to make others “take the fall.”
Here is video from President Obama’s Press Conference today, his first in 8 months, where he was confronted by Fox News’ Ed Henry about Benghazi. Henry asked him if he issued any orders to send help to the Americans under attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, pointing out that the father of one of the dead said he feels like his son dialed 911 and got no help. Obama avoided the question, with Henry following up, not letting him off the hook. Obama used his “offended” response, saying “if anyone thinks” he didn’t do everything possible blah, blah, blah. But he never described any specific orders to send help – which was in the region – to help the Americans who where under attack for many hours.
Here is a video report from Fox News’ Ed Henry saying the Obama White House is now in “full damage-control mode” after President Obama said in a recent interview he does not consider Egypt to be an “ally” of the United States.

Here is a video report by Fox News’ Ed Henry on Barack Obama’s criticism of GOP SuperPAC Ads, but his refusal to denounce the blatantly false Pro-Obama SuperPAC ad that blames Mitt Romney for the death of a steelworker’s wife. The report reviews the many ways the ad fails to tell the truth.
Here are White House Reporters Ed Henry and Jonathan Karl asking Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney if President Obama agrees with Democrat Harry Reid’s totally unsubstantiated claim that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in 10 years Carney refused to say whether Obama agrees, and he refused to disavow the attack by Harry Reid.
There is little doubt that Barack Obama is supremely overconfident about his chances for re-election.
Here is video of Fox News’ Ed Henry asking at a White House Briefing about Obama’s recent arrogant declaration that he has “another five years” to get his agenda implemented, as if his win in November is a foregone conclusion. Obama’s spokesman explains he is just “confident.”
Here is video of Fox News’ White House Correspondent Ed Henry responding to a thin-skinned President Obama’s jab at him today for asking his reaction to something Mitt Romney said recently. Obama shot back at Henry, “I didn’t know you were the spokesperson for Mitt Romney.”
Henry said it is standard procedure for White House reporters to quote political opponents to get reaction from the President, but that obviously Obama chose “not to engage” Mitt Romney but “instead decided to kind of go after me a little bit.”
This was Obama’s way of trying to intimidate the media into not asking him about what the GOP Candidates are saying. His intimidation tactics work with most of the fawning media, but not with all. Let’s hope an increasing number will be willing to ask him some serious and difficult questions.
In response to a question involving a quote from Mitt Romney, a testy President Obama tells Fox News’ Ed Henry, “I didn’t know you were the spokesperson for Mitt Romney.” Henry had quoted Romney saying, “If you do not want America to be the strongest nation on earth, I am not your president. You have that president today.”
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney once again attacks Fox News’ White House correspondent Ed Henry, this time accusing him of “creating a thing here for Fox.” Henry responded, “That’s not what I’m doing, and you know better than that.” Henry had again asked Carney when the White House would submit its own debt plan.
Here is video of new Fox News White House Correspondent Ed Henry sparring with Obama White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney. Henry pressed Carney on why Obama would speak to the nation in prime time WITHOUT presenting his own plan – the “Obama Plan” – for dealing with the nation’s Debt Limit Crisis.

Here is video of Democrat National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine admitting to CNN’s Ed Henry that President Obama did not focus on job creation during his first two years in office. Instead, he focused on everything else – including ramming ObamaCare through, which Kaine praised as a huge accomplishment for the future.
Not to worry – Kaine says Obama is ready to focus on jobs during the next two years.
