Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas) recently tried to link the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi to the first reported case of Ebola in the U.S. a few weeks ago.
Rep. Weber made the bizarre link during an interview last week by Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” radio show, reports RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
Perkins, who has attacked Obama for sending U.S. troops to help contain the Ebola virus in West Africa, suggested the president wasn't taking the virus seriously.
“I don’t want to sound alarmist and we don’t want people to get cast into a panic but this administration, as you well know, has a real serious credibility gap on a whole lot of things when it comes to taking things serious,” claimed Rep. Weber.
“Whether it’s ISIL or ISIS, whether it’s IRS, Benghazi, you can go right down the list and so it doesn’t foment faith in people to think that our administration’s on top of things when they’ve got such an abysmal track record,” added Rep. Weber.
President Obama has been bombing ISIS in both Syria and Iraq, but RawStory.com notes that Rep. Weber tried to discount that.
“This guy has a record of doing things from a political standpoint, whether it’s putting off the amnesty order he wants to do after the election," said Rep. Weber.
“The denial, whether it’s guys jumping the fence at the White House and they’re saying their agents acted with restraint, the denial that comes out of this administration, I mean nobody getting fired,” added Rep. Weber. “I don’t know if he’s playing golf, I don’t mean to totally disrespect the president because he’s got his job to do, but I think he needs to sit up and take notice on some of these things.”
Rep. Weber offered no proof that the president has not taken "notice on some of these things."
