  •  it won't matter a whit what the dems do. (0+ / 0-)

    "it probably means they will keep pounding benghazi until the elections. and by not responding to their lying and distortions in real time dems are ensuring it will cause significant damage to hillary if she runs and will definitely continue to help the GOP obstruct obama."

    facts haven't stopped the birthers, have they? the fact is, this issue has been responded to, several times, it just doesn't matter. the conspiracy theorists will have their conspiracies, it's what they do.

    •  last 20 yrs is full of benghazis and they (0+ / 0-)

      work only because the right has 1200 unchallenged radio stations pounding the lies all over the country 24/7 with no one in their face in real time. it's a very effective political 2x4 that is invisible/untouchable to the left because it gives them headaches and many believe the right's BS about it (free speech, entertainment, market forces, it's an ancient tech, it's what the people want, etc)

      clinton gore kerry and obama and nearly every major dem and every major progressive issue has been severely swiftboated and defined by professional propaganda operations designed in think tanks and blasted primarily by RW radio, while those that promised to get their backs turned their backs.

      it's not that dems don't respond. by the time dems respond in the mediums they consider relevant these events have already been spun and pounded into the earholes of 50 mil a week. the fact is (aside from stoprush) the left has never even tried to respond directly to the buzz machine that turns molehills into election-relevant mountains within days and can maintain them for months and years.

      the entire RW/teabagger alternate reality is possible because the left and dems completely ignore RW radio and have had no response to it except to ignore it.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

      I wish the ban hammer would fall on the Benghazi conspiracy theorists on this site.

      +++ The law is a weapon used to bludgeon us peasants into submission. It is not to be applied to the monied elite.
