Last week, Texas Representative Randy Weber (R) appeared on the conservative group Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” and became the first conservative of whom we are aware to link the Ebola case in Texas to Benghazi.
“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,” Weber told FRC President Tony Perkins. “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.”
Weber said that Obama’s decision to send servicemen to West Africa to help contain the outbreak was politically motivated — and yes, there were golf jokes.
“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, there’s a lot of things he does from a political standpoint,” he said. “The denial, you know, 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. 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.”
Weber says that it would be good if the President “finally wakes up and realizes he’s not the smartest man in the room on every topic of interest there is and he should listen.”
