Benghazi

Does anyone else find it interesting that those screaming about Benghazi, have said nothing about hunting down and finding those who killed four Americans?

Not one word about actually finding the terrorists who did it. I thought Republicans were all about protecting us from terrorists.

Or maybe, they simply don't care, if they can somehow twist it and use it to bring down President Obama.

1. Disaster politics

Using a situation to destroy another.

Thing is... seems we had more than a few generals running around chasing skirts or lavish lifestyles while Benghazi was going down. No wonder it caught our military off guard.

2. They're saying tell us all you know in open hearings; we don't care if you alert the killers

It's just crap. By the end of the year, it wouldn't surprise me if a) we've taken those who did this out (I think the WH knows who did it already, they just don't want to kill innocent bystanders and/or further inflame the situation) and b) the Republicans are still screaming for someone's head, preferably the President's.

4. Feigned outrage

Acknowledging that truth blows their talking point out of the water.

No way will they ever use it. Or even know that it exists.

Go figure...4000 dead over a fictional mushroom cloud is perfectly fine. But, 4 dead and telling a tall tale because CIA hasn't given the OK yet...is AN OUTRAGE! AN OUTRAGE, I TELL YOU!

WHERE'S THE OUTRAGE? I'M OUTRAGED! AREN'T YOU OUTRAGED? I'M SO OUTRAGED!

Republicans love that term. Outrage.






....outrage xD

5. Once again, political party power and hatred of Obama come before national security.

The Republican way.

6. Naturally

They couldn't give two shits about national security. In fact, they'd love nothing more than more dead Americans...just so they can blame Obama for it.

Yes, they are that bloodthirsty for Obama's ouster.

8. Yes, blaming Obama for everything bad is their number one goal.

That is especially true when it is actually something they have done that has caused the problem.

I firmly believe that their actions and accusations on this Benghazi matter have disrupted national security efforts. McCain shooting off his mouth is simply ridiculous. I think he has lost his mind.

There are many examples of actions they have taken to gain political advantage without regard for the security of the people of this nation.

The October surprise of 1980, Iran Contra, and the outing of Valerie Plame come to mind.
