We’re about to hit what has been a solemn anniversary in America for a decade — September 11.
But this year, Republicans, led by Fox News, are set to focus on a more recent terrorist attack — the one that claimed four American lives, including that of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, last year in Benghazi, Libya.
Making this tragedy into a scandal has been a Republican goal since Mitt Romney held a press conference to blast the president just hours after the attack occurred.
A year later, conservative activists still believe there’s a cover-up that needs to be exposed and even suggest that Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is protecting the president. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) suggested that the proposed strike against Syria is just an attempt to distract in part from Benghazi. And on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked liberal commentator Juan Williams to defend President Obama’s dismissal of Bengahzi as a “phony scandal.”
Williams had no problem doing so.
“You had an accountability review board come in and make 29 recommendations, and the State Department has accepted just about every one of them,” Williams said, citing a report led by George H.W. Bush’s former UN Ambassador, Thomas Pickering.
“You say this is not going away,” Williams said. “It’s gone away.”
Fox News contributor Karl Rove then responded with his most hilarious performance since he refused to let the channel declare that Mitt Romney lost.
“You may be comfortable with the American people being told a deliberate lie by the administration,” Rove said. “But I’m not.”
Ironically, Rove was not talking about the Bush administration’s falsehoods that led to the Iraq War. He was referencing the fact that former UN Ambassador Susan Rice delivered talking points she hadn’t prepared that represented the best intelligence available at the time.
Williams was unconvinced by Rove’s and Brit Hume’s insistence that no, there’s still questions that need to be answered, even though every question they asked has been answered by Pickering’s report or the House Republicans’ investigation.
“It’s gone, baby. It’s in your head. That’s the only place,” Williams concluded.
The evidence that Benghazi is a “phony scandal” is overwhelming. But pointing that out at the beginning of Fox News’ “Benghazi Week” won’t make the Republican desire to exploit another tragedy that took place on September 11 go away.
“Breitbart News” consists of rewriting real news reports to be as biased to the right as possible, and today at the hate site that Andrew built they’re stirring up the rage again, after President Obama announced the appointment of Susan Rice as National Security Advisor:
That’s all the troglodytes who read this garbage need, as they spew hundreds of ugly comments full of outright racism, conspiracy theories, and calls for civil war. These are truly toxic people.
The only thing that is going to save the USA is the deportation of all the illegal aliens and the election of a right wing president and Congress, anything else is just a delaying of the eventual destruction of the USA.
Maybe the president should step down and simply hand over his position to Rice as well. She obviously is a better liar than he is (Since she is being promoted). And she’s black (and a woman) which means she too can’t be criticized. Welcome to the bottom of the slippery slope people.
Why is anyone surprised by this? 1) She’s a female (I think), 2) She’s black, 3) She’s an American-hating communist, and 4) It’s another affirmative action appointed position that needs no confirmation.
Is there not ONE person in the Obama Administration or among his friends and advisors who is NOT a Rabid anti-Semite and lover of Muslims? ….. not even the elected Democratic congress? Someone?
It seems even they have a love affair with the One World Order that’s about to go into place.
I AM A FOREIGNER IN MY OWN COUNTRY
Soon we’ll all be ether a prisoner of dead.
If I were to die, I’ll take as many of my enemies down with me…. This is my allegiance… this is my oath to my country.
Bad behavior for this soviet occupied country is loyal behavior in the
reptile like cold eyes of this sinister smug alien enemy Spy.
Looks like Da Kingfish is operating under some kind of Equal Opportunity quota system. Nothing but spooks and fmails getting government jobs these days.
I am filling my garage with pitchforks, ax handles, name tags and American flags. Sooner or later we will March on Washington.
Sigh. I mean really, did anybody assume that the outcome of this charade would be any different? Rotating Leftist/Marxist/Muslim monsters. It would be a hoot if it weren’t so evil. The “fix” is in gang. This is no conspiracy theory, it’s right in out faces ladies and gentlemen. I know that I finally “manned-up” and started buying ammo and food storage products awhile back. And I hate that I have the gift of discernment. Thanks God! Congress is a “circular firing squad.” It took about the span of my 54
years for it to happen, but it has. No term limits, the internet (J. Edgar Hoover would have loved the technology) to spy on each other in Congress, monster lobbying groups and Beltway evil. Everybody is culpable in Congress, so nobody can truly get any legislation done without somebody going all “Chicago Way” on each other and pointing out a few of their past sins in order to get a vote through. Filibuster? You must be joking!!! That left the building with Jimmy Stewart in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington!! Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. I can guarantee that you can only count on one hand (if you are lucky) truly honest and critical thinking people in ANY arm of our government. Souls are easily bought in the dark halls of Congress. History is now repeating itself. America turned from God. We need to get our ducks in a row and be ready with pitchforks and shovels because no election will fix what is coming next. You know it and I know it. God is good, but he is fed up with us. We are now lying in the bed we made. Apathy is country killer and Satan is on the warpath. I will keep beating this dead horse until we actually have another Civil War. And do me a favor, don’t act surprised when it happens. Just be on the right side of God and the Constitution.
black jeebus delights in crapping on the country that made him gawd.
this woman is a pig.
This lying whore should be one of the kitchen help in Vladimir Putin’s kitchen! No sorry! She and Obama should be cleaning tables instead!
Obamas agenda is to spit in the face of true patriots in the hopes that we’ll rise up. Why do you think he’s acting like the typical n****r? He’s wanting a race war so he can clamp down on freedom. I know it sounds crazy, but why are things playing out the way they are? He acts stupid, but both he and his puppet masters are far from it.
Take a few minutes to look at things in that context and see if it makes sense. Obviously, don’t act on it, but be prepared to recognize sh!t when it starts to hit the fan.
The Fox News/Republican Party witch hunt against Susan Rice, over a completely phony trumped-up scandal, has succeeded: EXCLUSIVE: Susan Rice Drops Out of Running for Secretary of State; Saddened by Partisan Politics.
Embattled U.N. envoy Susan Rice is dropping out of the running to be the next secretary of state after months of criticism over her Benghazi comments, she told NBC News on Thursday.
“If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly - to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities,” Rice wrote in a letter to President Obama, saying she’s saddened by the partisan politics surrounding her prospects.
“That trade-off is simply not worth it to our country…Therefore, I respectfully request that you no longer consider my candidacy at this time,” she wrote in the letter obtained by NBC News.
How to spin the wingnuts up into frenzied, frothing paroxysms of total rage, and have a well-qualified Secretary of State at the same time: Al Gore for Secretary of State!
I first heard this suggestion from my friend David Greenberg, the historian who writes for Slate, and I thought, nahhh. But it grew on me pretty fast. Tell me why not. He’d be great. He’s known around the world. He’s respected around the world, about 90 percent of which surely wishes he’d been the president instead of the guy he beat. I’m not saying he’d change the world; no one can do that. But he’d get a hearing everywhere. He knows a huge number of world leaders, and he knows the issues cold. He could dive right into the pool’s deepest end, in the Middle East, on Iran, you name it.
What about his climate-change crusade, you wonder? Far from having to drop his signature issue, Gore could use his new position to push it with even greater vigor in a global context. Gore, and probably Gore alone, would be capable of elevating the climate change issue to the position it deserves on the national and global stage.
What we don’t know that much about is the Gore-Obama relationship. In 2007 and 2008, Gore clearly tilted toward Obama (Gore’s mere refusal to endorse Hillary Clinton over Obama indicated as much). Gore didn’t endorse Obama until right after he’d secured the nomination, but the two were said to have talked regularly. That’s good enough.
Finally: Man, would I love to see the Republicans try to swat down a Gore nomination. How? They’d poke around in his finances, remind America that he’s now divorced. But unless there were some kind of smoking gun on the former point, no one would care. They could not really block Gore; too much stature, too obviously qualified. Can you imagine? John McCain would grind his teeth, assuming those still are his teeth, down to dust. That would be awesome to watch.
I’m agnostic about whether PBO should nominate Rice for Secretary of State after Hillary Clinton leaves Foggy Bottom next year, but this lead paragraph from a story in today’s Washington Post has to be about the most brain-dead thing from a non-RWNJ source I’ve read in months:
The choice of a successor to Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state has turned into an unexpectedly nasty political fight that could cost the White House valuable goodwill with Republicans.
Seriously, Washington Post? There’s GOP “good will” for the White House? Have you been paying attention to anything in the past four years?
Sigh. This is why we can never have nice things.
If you thought the Republican Party might have finally been so embarrassed by their attempts to inflate the Benghazi attack into a huge scandal that they were starting to back away from this ridiculous mess, think again. Right wingers are apparently not finished embarrassing themselves yet: John McCain ‘Troubled’ by Susan Rice’s Benghazi Explanation at Meeting.
Sen. John McCain and two other GOP senators said they were “significantly troubled” after a private meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice about her erroneous explanation of the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
And the senators left open the possibility they could try to block Rice’s promotion if President Barack Obama nominates her as secretary of State. Acting CIA Director Michael Morell also joined Rice at the meeting.
“The concerns I have are greater today than they were before, and we’re not even close to getting the basic answers,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), joined by McCain and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), told reporters after the closed-door meeting. “I would place a hold on anybody who wanted to be promoted for any job who had a role in the Benghazi situation.”
Here’s an absolutely classic case of Republican cognitive dissonance today on Meet the Press, as Lindsey Graham castigates Mitt Romney for “digging a hole for the Republican Party” with his comments about self-deportation …
… then proceeds to launch yet another insane partisan character assassination attack on Susan Rice and the Obama administration over the ridiculous Benghazi fake scandal, saying that Obama is lying to the American public in order to make himself look good. Completely, utterly nuts.
These people are devoid of self-awareness; it’s a picture of what’s wrong with the GOP today. Mitt Romney isn’t digging that hole by himself.
CBS News has obtained the talking points prepared by the CIA for Susan Rice following the Benghazi attack, and of course there are no surprises — Rice simply passed on the information she was given by the CIA: CIA Talking Points for Susan Rice Called Benghazi Attack ‘Spontaneously Inspired’ by Protests.
The CIA’s talking points read as follows:
“The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the US Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the US diplomatic post in Benghazi and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.
This assessment may change as additional information is collected and analyzed and as currently available information continues to be evaluated.
The investigation is on-going, and the US Government is working with Libyan authorities to bring to justice those responsible for the deaths of US citizens.”
For the record, here’s the video of Rice’s appearance on Meet the Press, and as you can see she was very clear that this was not the final word, but simply the best information they had at the time.
Meanwhile, as the Republican Party continues flipping its lid over this ludicrous non-scandal, John McCain is calling for a Watergate-style special committee to investigate the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi attack, but couldn’t find the time to attend a classified briefing on the Benghazi attack yesterday. Classic.
When questioned today by CNN about missing the Benghazi briefing, McCain snapped and yelled, “Who the hell are you to tell me?”

Gail has said in interviews that one of the things that makes our relationship work is the fact that we hardly ever get to talk to each other.
