Benghazi: The (D) Politics of Blood

As Steyn makes clear, Democrat politics dominate the story of Benghazi.  And those politics--like the Democrat politics of abortion--are bloody.

...The government of the United States took the extremely strange decision to lose in straight sets. Not only did they not deploy out-of-area assets, they ordered even those in Libya to stand down. Lieutenant Colonel Gibson had a small team in Tripoli that twice readied to go to Benghazi to assist and twice was denied authority to do so, the latter when they were already at the airport. There weren’t many of them, not compared to the estimated 150 men assailing the compound. But they were special forces, not bozo jihadists. Back in Benghazi, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty held off numerically superior forces for hours before dying on a rooftop waiting for back-up from a government that had switched the answering machine on and gone to Vegas.

...In fact, everyone in this story is a Democrat or a career civil servant. Chris Stevens was the poster boy for Obama’s view of the Arab Spring; he agreed with the president on everything that mattered. The only difference is that he wasn’t in Vegas but out there on the front line, where Obama’s delusions meet reality. Stevens believed in those illusions enough to die for them. One cannot say the same about the hollow men and women in Washington who sent him out there unprotected, declined to lift a finger when he came under attack, and in the final indignity subordinated his sacrifice to their political needs by lying over his corpse. Where’s the “partisan politics”? Obama, Clinton, Panetta, Clapper, Rice, and the rest did this to one of their own. And fawning court eunuchs, like the ranking Democrat at the hearings, Elijah Cummings, must surely know that, if they needed, they’d do it to them, too. If you believe in politics ├╝ber alles, it’s impressive, in the same way that Hillary’s cocksure dismissal — “What difference, at this point, does it make?” — is impressive.

This will not stand, assuming (it's a big assumption) that the opposition party has any gonads.

The opposition party has only a few with gonads. The rest do not care. Their messiah can do anything he wants and it's all good. He's their guy. Doesn't matter that Americans were left to die. Just watch the comments.

The "opposition party" is the Republican party. Their messiah is Rush Limbaugh and he can say anything he wants and it's all good. He's their guy. It didn't matter how many Americans were killed at foreign posts during the last administration, not to mention in Iraq and Afghanistan. Just watch the comments.

Many more died in Afghanistan under your dildo-on-a-stick Obama.

Thanks to the wingnuts, al Qaida is learning all about our embassy security issues. Somewhere Benedict Arnold is smiling...

Benedict Arnold is smiling because he's given the biggest traitor crown to Barack Obama.

Let's see. Rush Limabaugh. Radio host. Can influence his listeners to call their representatives and voice their opinions.Kind of what should happen in a representative Republic. That is the extent of his powers. Next, show how Bush tried to cover anything like that up? Also, only a child points to supposed bad behavior by someone else to excuse his own. Obama has real power. He has also showed tremendous disdain for any limits on it. Fast and Furious, buried by his sphincter puppies in the lapdog media. His ignoring a court disallowing his so-called recess appointments to the NLRB, buried. Now Benghazi. Few, if any in Congress, that's the House and Senate, have the stones, moral courage and ethics to do anything about it. It's just another sign of the American lack of character.

Congressional budget cuts have consequences. Loved the slapdown on Issa by Pickering yesterday on Greet the Press...if GOPers at least had a credible congress critter carrying the water on this, maybe just maybe folks would buy into this fairy tale.

Cover anything like what up?

"buried by his sphincter puppies in the lapdog media."

The "lapdog" media covered it thoroughly. They found that there was no there there.

To the left wing trash defending Obama:

Post your home addresses so we can storm your fucking families in the middle of the night. See if the thin blue line bothers to respond.

Anony 8:59 p.m. needs to take his meds. As a TRUE Christian, I will pray that you don't burn in hell for your comments against God and humanity.
