Last night I was listening to a right-wingnut on the radio who as they all do blame EVERYTHNG bad on President Obama.
Long story short he was mad because we are closing embassies because of the current terror threat, yet he is also mad because we didn't do anything to stop Benghazi. So no matter what President Obama does it is wrong.
So I guess the question is WWWD or What would "W" do, sinse they seem to be able to forgive him for missing 9-11-01 and yet accept any and all actions he did to "protect" us.
I have to wonder just what would "W" have done for Benghazi? Go to war with Libya? Attack Iran? And, what would he have done about the current threat?
Maybe a better question would be WWRD, What would Romney do?
It is amazing how the Republicans could rubber stamp every action "W" did while condemning everything President Obama does. I am sure if Romney won the rubber stamp would be getting well used.

3. I have found the internet outrage machine to be depressing
If Romney was President, then DU would be the opposite, we would be spewing outrage and trying to create outrage over everything Romney was doing.
I admit that I fell for some of this when Bush was President and also for some of it when Obama was President as well (as the far left seemed to be also ginning up outrage over everything Obama was doing).
No matter what though, there always seems to be a surplus of people who are outraged about something and others who will GET outraged at the drop of a hate (supposed to be hat, but I wrote hate first and thought it was sorta apropo).
I am sorta reminded of the classic Trek episode where there was an entity which fed off of hate and it set up a situation creating conflict between some Klingons and the Enterprise, so it could feed off of the violence and hate that it was creating.
Sometimes it feels like our whole nation is being played this way, except that the entities are people who feed off of clicks to their site or eyeballs watching their TV show, but they feed - get their fame and fortune by stirring us up and playing us for fools.
See, also "The Music Man" about the terrible trouble in River City.
