For Congressman Peter King, time doesn't fly

Appearing on CNN, Rep. Peter King of Long Island, slammed President Obama's imagined  tardiness in describing the Libyan attack as terrorism.  Here's what the 20 -year Republican congressman said:
"I'm going to use my words very carefully.  I think the president's conduct and his behavior on this issue has been shameful.  And - first of all, as far as it being an actor of terror, the president was almost four minutes into his statement on September 12th before he mentioned an act of terror."  King contradicted  Mitt Romney's assessment by a mile that it took Obama two weeks to call it terror."
Jeez.  Four minutes?  Congressman King obviously didn't choose his words carefully enough.  No choice but to give him one of my not-so-coveted Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) awards without the labor of choosing my words carefully.

UPDATE;  My column on Jon Husted's surrender on early voting is posted on Plunderbund.

Republicans and their media syncophants are foaming at the mouth about what the Prez said when. Is this the sound of desperate losers?

New York Congressman King has a long history of permitting his mouth to outwork his brain. He also has a tendency, like soldiers racing to the sound of guns, to sprint to the tripods of TV cameras, sometimes before the camera operators have focused their lenses. His breathless and unfocused comments are rarely thought out in advance, leading to the mindless prattle for which he is notorious.
