The Irrelevance Trifecta

by Jerry Bader

Three networks, Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer uses the same talking point: "it's irrelevant." The law is irrelevant as it applies to the IRS scandal(This Week), what President Obama was doing during Benghazi(Fox News Sunday) is irrelevant. And here, with Bob Schieffer on "Face the Nation" who edited the Benghazi talking points is irrelevant. What was also irrelevant to Pfeiffer here was Scheiffer's very good question; why don't the big guns come out and talk about these issues, rather than sending low level flaks. Good question, which is probably why Pfieffer didn't answer it.
