Let’s follow Democrat logic for a moment, shall we?
I realize that Democrat logic is rather oxymoronic, but stick with me.
Benghazi is nothing but a partisan tempest in a tea pot that the Republicans are using to create division and to keep the focus off of Barack Obama’s wonderful policies on income inequality and the minimum wage. The Republicans are just trying to undermine Barack Obama’s wonderful Presidency that has accomplished so much for working men and women. Benghazi is a non-issue. It has been reviewed; we’ve had hearings. There is no evidence of any wrongdoing. We need to move on to the things that are important to the American people — jobs, wage equality and immigration reform.
Now, if Benghazi is such a non-issue, shouldn’t the Democrats just ignore it?
If the only people who are concerned about Benghazi are “delusional” like David Plouffe says, why not just stop talking about it?
If your opponent is delusional and an extremist, why not just let him spin his wheels and make a fool of himself?
You know, like Dennis Kucinich.
The best rule of thumb is to get out of the way and let him implode.
But they aren’t, are they?
Democrats crawled out of the woodwork this weekend to appear on the Sunday shows in order to poo-poo Benghazi as being a non-issue.
If it isn’t a big deal, why in the world are they spending so much time and energy proclaiming it isn’t a big deal.
Methinks the ladies protest too much.
You see. They know it’s a big deal.
That’s why they’re spending all of this effort to repeatedly scream from the rooftops that it isn’t a big deal.
They know it’s a big deal.
That’s why a bunch of Democrats in Congress who never saw a spending bill they didn’t love like a two dollar whore are now bitching about the “costs” of an investigation.
They know it’s a big deal.
The louder they scream, the more you know they know it’s a big deal.
There’s an episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” where Buffy and Willow decide to swipe the Watchers’ Diaries from Giles’ office in order to read up on Angel back when he first became a vampire. Buffy’s job is to distract Giles while Willow sneaks into his office to grab the diaries. Giles keeps trying to get past Buffy and each time he does, Buffy becomes more and more shrill as she tries to keep him distracted.
Democrats are doing the same thing here. They know it’s a big deal, so they are getting very shrill in their efforts to distract the American People from learning the truth.
Liberals always seem to forget that our Federal Government derives its powers from the consent of the governed. We the People are the ones to whom they answer.
A poll was recently released that shows that 65% of the American People want the next President to undo the disaster known as the Barack Obama Presidency. The majority of Americans who plan on voting in the 2014 Midterms want a Congress that will stop Obama’s agenda.
Barack Obama is no longer seen as the Savior from HopenChange Land.
He is seen as a disaster and a failure.
He is seen as someone who must be stopped.
And now we learn that in order to secure his reelection, he let a completely preventable attack on a US Consulate happen rather than take the steps necessary to secure it. He then lied about the cause of this attack. His Administration then went into hyper-drive to cover up his own incompetence, not to mention his own whereabouts. They pinned the blame for this attack on some poor schlub who made an internet video nobody saw. They covered up the fact that they knew the attack was pre-planned and carried out by Islamic terrorists — the very same crop of people Obama sent our military to aid 18 months earlier. They obstructed every request for emails and documents requested by Congress. They lied and then lied and then lied some more.
And We the People — the ones whose consent our Federal Government must seek — want answers.
If the Democrats in Congress really thought this was no biggie, they would let this Select Committee proceed unmolested if for no other reason than it would make the Republicans look like complete idiots.
But they know it’s a big deal. They know the Republicans won’t look like idiots. They know it will make Barack Obama and his entire Administration look like the corrupt, callous, self-centered opportunists that they are.
What Democrats fail to comprehend is that their incessant bitching only keeps Benghazi in the news. It keeps the story on the front page (figuratively speaking since newspapers are dying). Rather than fewer Americans hearing about Benghazi, more Americans are hearing about Benghazi.
If they really thought it was a non-story, they would shut up about it. But they can’t shut up about it. They have to keep yelling and complaining and whining and bitching because they know it’s a big deal.
If Benghazi were really a whole lot of nothing, the Administration wouldn’t have spent the last 20 months trying to obstruct the investigations in Congress.
If Benghazi weren’t a big deal, Obama’s whereabouts for the nearly nine hours the attack was going on would not be the best kept secret since McDonalds’ Special Sauce.
But they know it’s a big deal. And that is why they are petrified.
The only thing that has prevented Congress from pursuing impeachment of this corrupt failure of a President is the lack of popular support for the move. The Benghazi cover-up would pull the curtain back and show Americans once and for all that Barack Hussein Obama — the Great Uniter, the Great Healer, the Great man — is nothing more than an opportunistic parasite more interested in his own political and financial fortunes than the safety and security of the American People.
And that my friends is a big “F-ing” deal.
