I find the GOP’s outrage over Benghazi to not only be an insult to everyone who died in the illegal and unjust wars waged by Cheney and Bush, it’s an insult to every thoughtful American who knows full well what they’re doing now. They stayed silent in the Bush years because it wasn’t in their political interest to express any real and sincere outrage at a time when it was actually justified. Now they want us to think they’ve suddenly developed a conscience?
For most politicians, outrage is put on display only when it suits them and their purposes. The GOP have become absolute masters at this since the 2008 election. This feigned outrage over Benghazi is just the latest example. It’s a weak and pathetic attempt to dupe Americans into believing that the White House and the State Department actually colluded and intentionally misled us so that Obama could win reelection.
News flash: He didn’t need the help. It was a landslide on every level and in every demographic except older whites.(MORE)
