FILE - In this May 13, 2013, file photo President Barack Obama defends his administration's actions in the wake of the attacks last year on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, during a joint White House news conference in Washington with visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron. Obama called the Congressional criticism a political sideshow. For nearly five years, Republicans have struggled to make a scandal stick to the White House. One by one, the controversies with shorthand names like Solyndra, Benghazi, and Fast and Furious hit a fever pitch, then faded away. But the disastrous rollout of Obama's signature health care overhaul may have the kind of staying power Republicans have sought. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
