VIDEO OF ENTIRE PRESS CONFERENCE HERE.
The president calls McCain's efforts to criticize U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice "outrageous."
Or to put it another way, "Hey McCain, Graham... STFU."
As my pal Jamil Smith (@JamilSmith) tweeted :
Oh, and if there was any doubt that @ambassadorrice was going to get that Secretary of State nomination, I think McCain sealed it today.

Here are a few more reactions:
Which reminds me, John McCain picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate -- and he thinks Susan Rice is unqualified?
Lindsey Graham just released a statement: Mr. President, don’t think for one minute I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi." Really, Senator Graham? President Obama is "ultimately responsible" for Benghazi? Not the al-Qaeda guys who committed the attack? McCain and Graham can't even properly read a transcript of Susan Rice's comments, yet they know who's responsible for Benghazi?
Just had a dude tweet me saying that 9/11 couldn't have been prevented, but Benghazi could have been. Nothing to add.
