” Here are the key exchanges between Wallace and Axelrod:
Q. How soon after the attack did the President meet with the National Security Council, with people from state, with people from the…, the Director of National Intelligence, with all of the various people to try to sort out what happened in Benghazi?
A. Look. We are sorting out what happened there. Understand that the President the day after the attack called it an act of terror and charged everyone with responsibility for getting to the bottom of what happened.
Axelrod’s answer is clearly not responsive. He not only declines to answer the “how soon” part, he doesn’t even say that Obama has ever met with those about whom Wallace inquired. “
‘ Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, has been watching presidential and vice presidential debates for a long time, so that’s really saying something. Here’s his full quote:
I have to say I think I have watched almost every presidential and vice presidential debate since the first four Kennedy-Nixon debates in 1960, and thinking back over the last few minutes I don’t believe I have ever seen a debate in which one participant was as openly disrespectful of the other as Biden was to Paul Ryan tonight. And that’s what it was. You can talk about the smirks, the smiles, the head-shaking, the mugging. He was openly contemptuous and disrespectful.”
