  •  It was never about Terrorism (0+ / 0-)

    Their criticism against Rice, and to a lesser extent Obama was that he was mean to Terry Jones. It was NEVER about terrorism or about an administrative coverup.

    The right wing is FUMING that the President singled out a film made by one of their hate-preachers and openly criticized it. Remember Authoritarians are very in-group and out-group centric.

    When they say Benghazi was a "coverup" and "should've called it out as a terrorist attack from the start" what they're really saying is: "HOW DARE OBAMA CRITICIZE TERRY JONES! In America we stand up for our own first! (Our own meaning only rabid right-wing in groups like fundamentalist preachers) He was just trying to blame US for this whole thing! I SMELL A COVERUP! Let's see if we can tar him somehow for this!"

    •  One might think that decent Americans would be (0+ / 0-)

      a bit more careful of their Free Speech rights when the connection between the exercise of them in the way the film people did had a connection to the deaths of Americans abroad. Even if it was only a connection which gave the burners a hint of opportunity to do what they did.
