“…YOU’RE all wrong! There simply is no elephant here!” Perino and Krauthammer give concise and clear opinions concerning the powers that be and the Benghazi debacle. It is easy to write off a scandal after time and interest has passed. Our news cycles have long ago crowded out the news about Benghazi as new events arise.
What is disturbing is that there is still friction for traction with the story or the preponents of this angle would have moved on to apply their angst to another more fruitfull situations. Situations that could more readily offer some other scandalous bit of grist for the GOP to commiserate over.
No problem here, keep moving on…but the white house sends one of it’s top dogs on a marathon Sunday talk show run. Rice lied for them. Do you think she knew they were lies? I felt Obama’s defense, “you won’t get her unless you go through me” was a bit strident. For a moment the Hammer toyed with the thought that there was some “me and missus Jones” going down. That’s the kind of possessive challenge that one hears coming from a man about his woman. If you asked a person to lie for you it would follow that you would send the message that you have their back. If you just threw them under the bus, you would be compelled to make nice because you again have put your career in her hands, (and she might be pissed enough to turn} and it behooves you to be supportive.
Moreover, once a person has found something they were searching for, they quit looking. It would be foolish to continue to search once you have found your answer. But alas, that is not the condition of Benghazi.
Benghazi just has too many shadowy areas, so many obfuscations and disseminations, not to mention a huge clownish red herring.
And why hasn’t anyone mentioned the lynch mob mentality of the white house and the department of justice in jailing the maker of the video. Especially when It is established that he was a Red Herring and a Judas goat for the administration.
