Here’s How the GOP Missed the Boat on Benghazi

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: "What difference does it make?"

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “What difference does it make?”

The Benghazi committee hearings are mercifully in the rear view mirror. Democrats and their willing lackeys in the drive-by press have kicked the spin machine into overdrive trying to turn Thursday’s Carnivale event into a towering triumph forCamp Clinton. But seriously. Ms. What Difference Does It Make? didn’t come off too swift, did she? But then, neither did Republicans.

Despite the obvious lying, obfuscating, lying, the dumb bell defense, lying, No Doze segments, and um, lying, one thing came across loud and clear on Thursday: The Secretary of State bar was set so low on Hillary Clinton’s watch, a gimpy snail could’ve hopped it without breaking a sweat. On crutches. But that’s not exactly news, is it?

Neither is the fact that the Queen of Chappaqua burnished up a new coat of Teflon for the hearings.

Well, what did you expect? Corruptocrat Clinton has had years of practice. You didn’t really think the Queen of Chappaqua was going to get nailed on national TV, did you?  That sanctimonious Democrats were going to let their presidential frontrunner wear an omelet along with that God-awful pant suit (which may have been an improvement, but we’ll leave that for another time)?

Nope. Hill & Co. did what they always do when caught with their hands in the cookie jar: Lie. Spin. Bob and weave. And blame Republicans.

It seems to have worked. For now.

You’d think the GOPP would figure this out. It’s not like this is anything new for Ms. Corruptocrat. It’s standard procedure for Hill and Bill. Dating back to Arkansas.

Flip side: Now we know. Again. Yep, Corruptocrat Clinton really is that incompetent. Can’t handle two email accounts at the same time. Routinely ignored emails from ambassadors and other pesky peons while somehow managing to find plenty of time to hob knob with Sidney Blumenthal and shake down donors for the Clinton Foundation.

That said, Hillary Clinton is a Liar is hardly headline news. It’s what she does. As far as the hearings go, she was going to be portrayed as the victim of a partisan witch hunt while she skewered those rascally Republicans on their own shish kabob.

That’s pretty much how it played out if you believe the usual talking head pundits: Nothing to see here people. Move along. Move along. (Incidentally, wouldn’t GOP committee members have better served the committee and justice by yielding their time to the pit bull from South Carolina and letting Gowdy grill Hill? He didn’t seem to buy the Dumb Bell Defense.)

Now, now. You didn’t really think Clinton would finally be held accountable, did you? That she wouldn’t be able to slither out of yet brouhaha? That gross incompetence and galactic ineptitude related to the deaths of four Americans would matter? That Chief Klintonista and Hillary Apologist Elijah Cummings would do something other than caterwaul at Republicans for “politicizing” the hearings? That the drive-by media wouldn’t shill for their DemoLib darling while the long-suffering Queen Hillary patiently endured the petty slings and arrows of the peasantry?


So. Here’s what the media and most Republicans missed related to the Benghazi hearings: Of course Benghazi was “politicized” – by Democrats. Here’s how:

–        Hillary, Obama and Co. knowingly lied to the American public about Benghazi when they orchestrated and trotted out their now thoroughly discredited blame-it-on-a-bad-YouTube video cover story in order to give Obama a win in 2012.

–        Chill Hill lied to the families of four Americans and to the American public. Intentionally and repeatedly.

–        Ms. Career Corruptocrat lied to protect her presidential bid.

Why? Simple. Because coming clean with the true cause behind the 2012 attack on the American compound in Benghazi was off-script. If terrorists attacked the compound, then Obama hadn’t made the world safe for democracy and vanquished terrorists worldwide – as he was so fond of trumpeting during his 2012 campaign. Calling Benghazi a terrorist attack would’ve exposed Obama’s “I killed bin Laden and made the world safe from bad guys bent on our destruction, give me four more years” campaign tune for what it was: a shipload of first class hooey.

In other words, Clinton & Co. lied about Benghazi because winning an election for Obama was more important than protecting American lives – or telling the truth.

If that’s not “political,” what is?

And “Yes, Benghazi was indeed politicized – by Democrats – in order to win an election” is what Republicans should be trumpeting from the rooftops.
