Why no press scrutiny in Libya?

Is it my imagination that the current president specifically stated in 2009 that "If you make under $250,000 you will not see your taxes increase by a single dime, not your income taxes, payroll taxes -- nothing." Payroll taxes increased 2 percent on everyone. Is it my imagination that the sequestration was proposed by the current president and signed into law by him. Now he blames Congress.

Am I imagining things when the press swarms a college football player with an imaginary girlfriend and demands answers yet that same press won't or can't demand the same answers when our ambassador and Seals are slaughtered in Benghazi, Libya.

American essayist, John Burroughs, wrote, "A man may fail many times in his life, but he will never be a failure until he blames others." I can't imagine.
