The Republicans have lost their minds over this Benghazi thing

If the President described the attack as an "Act of Terror", as he plainly said the day after the event (It's on video tape), and they say that he wasn't as specific as he should have been by not calling the act of terror actual terrorism and all of the confusion over the moment a "cover up"

What the fuck are they talking about?

None of this shit makes any sense at all.

Even if he didn't say any of it, why would they be upset?

5. It's all they have.

Romney's tape revealed his hope for an international incident. He never served his country, he expects this country to serve him. This is what would have happened to Gore if he had been President on 9-11.

6. It's only red meat to their base. It's a stupid tactic.

Pres. O got Bin Laden. This Benghazi thing isn't going to erase THAT in anyone's mind expect the RWNJ's.

7. It is their view that if they blast the President on this issue and say it loud enough

 

that they will make it true! Romney is trying to gain points with the Repuke military nuts out there to get more votes. Until this Libya issue, Mitt had no military policies or positions. Now this gives him the chance to artificially have one.

What is really pissing me the fuck off is why the main stream media, if they are in fact so damn liberal, why aren't they slamming this goon for flipping every singe one of his "positions". Why aren't they talking about how he paid $500,000 to much in taxes just to get to that 14.1% so that he wouldn't be a blatant liar yet again. Why aren't they talking about how rare it is to have not one member of the Romney family ever serve in the military. Why aren't they forcing him, through interviews to come clean on his positions?

I just don't get it, this lunatic is getting away with murder!

They've become essentially the same as the definition of insane.

10. let me explain it to you, Mr. Scorpio

repukes know they have zero chance of a "stain on a dress" issue with Obama, so they have to make up their silly "controversies" where they can find them - they've been trying since he was elected - where he was born, Rev Wright, Solyndra, Fast & Furious, and now this, because they are fast running out of time

.... and because if the Republican leadership didn't keep such noise in the air, their peeps might stop and look too closely at Mitt then suddenly ask themselves ... WTF?

11. They've lost on this issue

That's why they're going batshit crazy. When Obama scolded Mitt on this issue, the repubs knew they lost their capital on this issue, so now they're whining about it, because they're so frustrated. Check and mate.

13. Do you know about "misdirection"? If Obama prepares even a little for Benghazi then he has less time

 

to prepare for really serious foreign policy issues.

17. I don't get it either

What makes a difference what you call it? If someone shoots your friend and he dies, what makes the difference if you say he was killed or he was murdered? He is just as dead by either name. Seems like more phony republican outrage because its all they have left.

21. It's like Romney claiming "I don't have a 5 trillion dollar tax cut plan ..."

when it was estimated to be 4.8 trillion. Technically, it's truth ... but it's like saying $3.80 gas when the pump reads $3.799 ...

But you knew that.
They're just fucking nuts, and have to prove it at every possible opportunity.
Nothing unusual about this incident...

It is embarrassing how they are acting. And the more they harp on it, the worse they look, and keep the issue alive, that their man had no clue about what he was talking about!
