This is “what difference does it make” v2.0:

WALLACE: With due respect, you didn’t answer my question. What did the president do that night?

PFEIFFER: He was kept — he was in constant touch that night with his national security team and kept up-to-date as events were happening.

WALLACE: You say the national security team, but he didn’t talk to the Secretary of State, except for the one time when the first attack was over. He didn’t’ talk to the Secretary of Defense. He didn’t talk to the Chairman of the Joints Chiefs. Who was he talking to?

PFEIFFER: He was talking to his national security staff, his National Security Council, the people who keep him up-to-date about these things as they happen.

WALLACE: Was he in the Situation Room?

PFEIFFER: He was kept up-to-date throughout the day.

WALLACE: Do you not know if he was in the Situation Room?

PFEIFFER: I don’t know. I don’t remember what room the president was in on that night. That’s a largely irrelevant fact.

Maybe Obama was in the living room learning what happened on the news just like the rest of America. That seems to be the pattern.

Pfeiffer said questions about where Obama was and what he was doing during and after the attack are offensive. The White House didn’t seem to think Obama’s exact location was irrelevant during the Bin Laden raid.

Team Obama will dodge the “where was Obama in the hours and days after the Benghazi attack” question forever. The day after the attack he was in Las Vegas raising money. The day after that Obama was in Colorado raising money and looking forward to another opportunity to… you guessed it — raise money:
