Pity the GOP. Well, no pity from me. Seems they never ‘thought’ about losing the presidential election and, as a result, they don’t know what to do about the situation. The GOP governors are quickly distancing themselves from Mitt Romney and the Republican establishment and the Conservative Entertainment Complex. Hell, yesterday, the Virginia, Ohio and Wisconsin Republican governors all threw in the towel and accepted ‘Obama Care’ mandates for their states- their blue states. They understand the will of the people in their blue states and their need to get reelected.
Meanwhile, the CEC [Conservative Entertainment Complex] continues to feed their enslaved audience lies and distortions; after all, they can’t just just sit there with egg on their collective faces from the election predictions. They need to change the subject and what better way to do so is to fabricate a 2nd term presidential scandal- even before Obama’s inauguration.
Enter the Benghazi affair. Rather than writing what you already know about this ‘scandal,’ let me share what I learned over dinner Friday evening with my CEC-stooge and brother-in-law. As I was enjoying my pizza and without any warning he said, “I hate to tell you guys, but there’s more to the Benghazi story.” Quickly swilling some beer to clear my palate I said, “Oh is there?” Without hesitation, Jack spewed ‘information’ on the so-called BenghaziGate.
I could have been listening to Fox or Hannity or Limbaugh because his tone mimicked that set of Bozos as he mocked both Susan Rice and the President over the message she delivered to the press on the Sunday following the attack. “Who changed the message, eh?” he scowled. “From what I heard today…” he went on until his sister asked, “Where did you hear this?” “Well…ah… from the news,” he stammered. The news. Pity the man. Outside of politics he’s quite bright and has a tremendous recall of history. Sadly, his brain is now owned by the CEC and, as a result, he robotic-ally spews the CEC message. And he doesn’t even know it.
The ‘real’ news yesterday put the CEC to shame; or, rather, General Petraeus did. Petraeus spoke to both the Senate and House intelligence committees ans said that references to the group alleged to have been behind the 11 September attack were in the CIA’s classified talking points, which were classified, but removed from the unclassified memo relied upon by Rice. The reason, he said, was so as to not to tip off the group about what the US authorities knew.
The vocal and grumpy old white men of the GOP [Rep. King, Sen. Graham, Sen. McCain] still insist that the White House had ‘something’ to do with all of this- especially because of the timing during the presidential campaign. How sad, especially for the cranky old McCain who, I believe, never got over his loss in 2008.
And so it goes over there, on the far-right edge of the political spectrum, where dreams are reality and reality is but a dream.
