“…a little more C-SPAN, a little less FOX News.”

Check this out via TPM:

The caller rattled off a list including Benghazi, the IRS scandal, NSA surveillance, Fast and Furious and the Veterans Affairs scandal. He also asked Himes to address the theory that Obama was responsible for the 2013 federal government shutdown, not Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“Any other president would have been laughed out of office by now if he’d have been a Republican,” the caller said. “This guy gets away with murder!”

And the response by Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) made me smile:

The congressman began to defend Obama, but instead suggested a different news diet to the caller.

“I will try to attend to defend — actually, I’m not going to,” Himes said. “Look, with all due respect, Bob, maybe a little more C-SPAN and a little bit less Fox News. That was the grab bag of everything that Fox News and my friends on the Republican Caucus of the House in particular have tried to hang around the president.”

Here is the entire clip from C-SPAN.
