    that GOP operatives intended to make Bengazi the "October surprise."  The article quoted many of them jumping up and down with glee, sure that they had the goods to defeat Obama on this.  

    Furthermore, when you think about it, what the hell else can Romney OR the GOP talk about when it comes to foreign relations?  His summer trip abroad?! The Iraq war? The Afghanistan war?---hell, Mitt pretends that doesn't exist.  

    Instead his lions and tigers and bears are Russia, Iran and China, oh my! Complete lack of concern or attention to our troops still risking their lives in that hell hole.  10 years we've been there, twice the length of WWII without much to show for it. The Soviets spent 10 years there too, and got their troops sent home with their tails between their legs.  In many ways, Afghanistan is the ultimate David against TWO super powers, but I digress.

    Fact is there were 12 attacks on US embassies during GWB's two terms---not to mention 9/11.  

    I know the president can't directly reference GWB, but he CAN say "between 2000 and 2009, before I came into office, there were 12 attacks on US embassies, and then there was 9/11."  

    I really think he needs to go there. Too much of America is suffering from "Romnesia."
