      The people they care about can't even pronounce Benghazi, let alone know where it is, let alone remember what happened, or didn't, there.

      These brain-dead polyps think that just because it ends in -azi its something to do with Hitler so that makes it baaaaad.

      Or something.

      Until inauguration day The USA is in the greatest danger it has ever experienced.

        They could claim that she was freshman roomies with Hannibal Lecter and their mouth-breathing base will believe it.  But they can't win the WH with their base alone, and "-azi"isms have been going (and will continue to go) over like iron dirigibles with anyone who remotely approaches the profile of "independent".

      •  Well, their attack at least partially succeeded. (0+ / 0-)

        You may remember, that on the evening of 9/11, the Romney campaign sent out that idiot press release (tweet?) criticizing the WH, etc. for their response to the video protests, (incl. at the time the Libya protests).

        Then Romney gave that weird, scripted press conference the next day, even after the 4 deaths were confirmed. He didn't even acknowledge the deaths, as I remember.

        Romney was panned, slammed, and ridiculed by many foreign policy experts, and the media.

        His numbers tanked.

        Then in the following week, Rove started Benghazi-gate with an editorial somewhere. The gop jumped on the bandwagon, and Romney was temporarily off the hook.
        "Benghazi-gate" was forced into the news cycle by the gop and the media sucked it up.

        What I would like to see would be an honest accounting of that whole narrative. I think between now and 2015 the Dems should see to it that the real history of Benghazigate gets told, and the narrative becomes the gop denial of the facts about Benghazi.

        You can't make this stuff up.
