And no, it wasn’t some brief aside to a reporter or the ladies of “The View”: this was President Obama speaking during a televised news conference Friday afternoon at the White House. Hey world that happens to be on fire, “we tortured some folks.”

Many were most upset that Carpenter, senior communications advisor to Ted Cruz, had a problem with the president admitting to terrorists having been “tortured.”

It did seem strange timing to some that Obama would concern himself with talk of torture after a tough week of fundraisers and barbecue dinners out with ordinary folks — not to mention some other issues on his plate.

Ah, yes, not terrorists but “folks.”

So what’s this about a “PR victory” again, for those who haven’t quite caught up?
