Obama-bashing can get confusing for the simple-minded:
Meadows added that the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, on which he serves, is conducting an investigation into Benghazi, issuing subpoenas and taking sworn testimony. As for Egypt, he said, “If the military came in and kicked out President Obama because his approval rating was less than 50 percent, (Obama) would say that's a coup.” He added that “we should have cut off aid” after the ouster of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. “America needs to stand firm in our word and not equivocate,” he said.
Dude, that's so three weeks ago. When the Right-Wing Nut-Job Machine started to blame Obama for the coup in Egypt, they remembered they had already blamed Morsi and his American Muslim President friend for the attack on Benghazi:
Was Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood involved in the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya?
Last week, several major Arabic newspapers ran with a story, first reported by the Kuwaiti paper Al Rai, quoting a Libyan intelligence report on the Benghazi attack that mentions an alleged connection to Morsi and other prominent Egyptian figures.
The report, prepared by Mahmoud Ibrahim Sharif, director of national security for Libya, is based on purported confessions of some of the jihadists arrested at the scene.
Don't feel stupid, Mark. Obama-bashing is apparently an art form for many on the right; you don't have to understand it to appreciate it. Spending time on Twitter might help:
