I guess I'm not getting it,

Is all they are arguing about (re:Benghazi) is which talking points should have been used by Susan Rice on Meet the Press, etc.? Really? What am I missing?

1. Nothing. This is an attack on the Obama administration. Who said it had to make sense?

They are looking for their Watergate scandal to bring Obama down. (BTW, had it been Hillary Clinton reading the talking points, they would have gone after her. She would have been a harder target, but they would have).

9. Yes, it's mostly mudslinging to prevent Obama from a shiny new start.

This parallels the frustration of some old republican pols just said good-bye to their secretly cherished chances to move to high profile positions in a Rmoney administration, and they are showing us how they would have been better had they but had the change.

3. i think it's call "setting the tone"

they intend to pretend there's a scandal in everything in obama's second term.

frankly, the only thing surprising about this is that they didn't play the faux scandal card during obama's first term (well, technically, until now).

5. It was only Fox now since the election is over it has turned into the

media's new shinny object. Morning Joe was on the band wagon today.

8. They are pissed

because Obama had said that Al Quaeda was decimated. They believe he lied in the talking points to cover up the fact that they're not.

IOW, it would have taken away one of his talking points.

It's really that simple.

BTW, this was the explanation given to me by a bagger on my politics board.

10. But Obama didn't exactly say that

he said decimated in Afghanistan...he didn't say around the world.
