The GOP Will Never Forget Benghazi

Posted by on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 8:02 AM

All that's left is Benghazi. They want nothing but their truth of Benghazi. They wont let go of Benghazi. Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham:

The Dems should just give them Benghazi.

Did the Democrats make this much fuss over the well-documented intelligence failures of the Bush administration that allowed the original 9/11 to happen, where 3,000 American citizens died? And after which the National Security Adviser who overlooked these warnings was promoted to Secretary of State?

I seem to remember that one of the reasons there wasn't enough security at Benghazi (and still isn't at other diplomatic sites) is that the Republicans have repeatedly reduced the amount budgeted for diplomatic security when reconciliation comes along. I wish Clinton and the rest of the Democrats would bring this up forcefully and repeatedly.

Doesn't matter - they collectively will always be known as the party in power when the worlds worst terrorist attack occurred on American soil.

Let her "tweet" all she wants - she has got a leg to stand on.

Can we just send them to Benghazi?

Or, HRC could offer them a deal: "Show me Ted Nugent's draft board records and shit-stained blue jeans, and I'll admit that Benghazi is a city in Libya."

Never give in, Charles. Not an inch for those knuckle-draggers.

Hillary is scheduled to testify, and and gladly will. Until then I reserved judgement.

"The Dems should just give them Benghazi."

In good time they will. It took the Republicans 18 months to "give" the Democrats Watergate.

There is no there, there.

I cannot believe this gets any legs.

They're doing it so their mouth-breathing followers will copy them and also repeat it.

Their followers are very simple-minded dullards. This is the only way they can be trained.

This is not about Benghazi. It's a play by Republicans to tarnish a Clinton run for the presidency in 2016. It's a play by Democrats to inoculate Clinton for a run for the presidency in 2016. Give them Benghazi indeed.

Benghazi had some "wow that was not a good idea in retrospect" aspects. Not learning and swaggering is s bad idea.

Doing that is a big part of how the republicans got to be the party they are today. We can't afford both major parties being that irresponsible.

Fox will be dicks, it's what they do.

Exactly, @6.

Republicans can keep Benghazi, the second they acknowledge Karachi, Damascus, Riyadh, Taskkent, Jeddah and Sana'a.

And don't forget the 53 Americans who died in attacks on foreign U.S. diplomatic outposts under the GW Bush administration. Obama's influence is indeed far-reaching.

Yep. plenty of real war scandals in this and the last Admin.

But it's their favorite exotic word(s) of the day. Used to be Khalid Sheik Mohammed.

Bush gave us the World Trade Center disaster and then the Iraq war disaster which cost us trillions. Republicans are petty pricks.

I really wish Hills would say something like: "How dare you use the death of my people to further your shitty agenda. You are all terrible human beings. Sometimes shit happens to good people that work in bad places. These people gave their lives to their couuntry. Go fuck yourself."

God, Charles, you're so obtuse. No wonder you follow the @IngrahamAngle.
