Apparently, Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) thought he could appear on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace and rattle off some Democratic talking points on Benghazi without being challenged.
Rep. Adam Smith is a really poor talking points parrot.Getting pantsed by Chris Wallace right now.

He was wrong. Wallace reminded him that it is his job to push back and ask tough questions.

Watching Chris Wallace eat Adam Smith’s lunch re: #Benghazi. My takeaway? If you’re a (D), ok to lie and deceive but if (R)s, god help you.

Love it! Dem Smith on FoxNewsSunday says “We don’t know who changed talking points” – Chris Wallace we do too! “White House & State Dept!”

@foxnewspolitics um, this guy on w/Chris Wallace is a totally blinded partisan person calling a needed investigation a partisan activity???

Adam Smith (D-WA) on Fox with Chris Wallace “Wait till we have all the facts prior to opining” — (then we can say it was a long time ago!)

It’s refreshing to see some in the media pursue the truth about an event that cost the lives of four brave Americans.
