President Obama has now publicly declared the Benghazi incident, the IRS illegal intrusion, the improper FBI investigation of a reporter and the NSA controversy "phony scandals."

I ask Mr. Obama, did you say that to the families of the four Americans slain at the Benghazi consulate when their caskets arrived at Andrews Air Force Base? Did you assure the parents of Fox News journalist James Rosen that the FBI's snooping in their private emails was actually phony? And those many conservative groups forced to undergo inappropriate documentation demands and purposeful delays in their nonprofit applications that it never happened, it was just another phony scandal?

What about your election promises in 2008 and 2012? Were they also phony?
