Wednesday during a speech at Knox College in Illinois, President Obama referred to the many scandals surrounding his White House as “phony.” Obama’s comments came just hours after White House Press Secretary Jay Carney referred to the scandals as phony on MSNBC and said Republicans have gone too far in their efforts to investigate them.
“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,” Obama said.
In response to the comments, the family of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry is reminding President Obama that the hundreds of deaths linked to Operation Fast and Furious are far from phony. Guns trafficked during the operation were found at Terry’s murder scene in December 2010.
