Hillary’s crimes will lead to charges over Benghazi being dismissed. Not that she cares one bit…

what people were thinking that night. But it’s painfully clear that there were things that could have been done that weren’t. Now, exactly why they weren’t done is an open question. It certainly looks like gross incompetence, but it is hard to know. I mean, we don’t even know where Obama was that night! Whatever happened, it very much appears that it was extremely bad leadership and poor judgement, both on the part of Barack Obama and on the part of Hilary Clinton.
that Hillary Clinton will turn on Obama for 2016. Her husband already famously hates him. She needs to blame him for the Benghazi fiasco (though of course in reality that was HER poor judgment as much as his). Oh, and why do we still not know where Obama was during those hours? Was he with a foreign spy? Was he with a mistress? Was he with a gay lover? Was he just watching TV? We just don’t know. Still. And that is a blot on the “Palace Guard” media.
But Hillary turning on Obama is already happening. And it will only increase. While she has to be very careful, she also has to do it. She is playing “Operation” for extremely high stakes. Touch a side and she is out.
It’s a hard line to tread: She must acknowledge the reality of Obama’s idiotic foreign policy, but then the bothersome issue is that she was in charge of that foreign policy for almost all the time in question. She might very well lose (or cause to stay home) the Obamaphiles if she hammers him. She can’t (politically) just kick him to the curb. So she has to figure out how to be seen as a loyal lieutenant but can’t afford to be seen as a suck-up toady. That is tough because she was a suck-up toady, and she showed incredibly poor judgment. And unlike her husband, she is just not very likable and not a gifted politician.
a little suspicious. Remember, Obama had a pathetic YouTube videographer arrested and held for months in jail in a misguided and dishonest attempt to shield himself from the Benghazi debacle.
and unnecessary risk for Democrats you boycott the Behghazi hearings. They really need to think about how they would look if something new came out. If they go along and nothing new comes out, they are no worse for the wear. They can pose as wronged champions of good government. If they refuse and then something really damaging comes out, they are hosed. And remember, this would be right before the elections.
For Democrats, the prudent thing to do is to just take part in the hearings. Additionally, if they refuse to participate, they will have no say in what actually happens. They will have left the entire thing up to the Republicans. I don’t think they want that.
What could Obama possibly have been doing during the Benghazi attacks that is worse than being seen as drowsy at the switch (or entirely absent) and ineffectual? THAT is the real question. And it is a very disturbing one. Honestly, what would be worse? That is a scary question.
Maybe he was just asleep, and it looks really bad to have him sawing logs while Americans are being killed. Maybe he was doing something nefarious. After all, he has slipped his historians and handlers several times in the past, for unknown reasons. We just don’t know what happened that night. What we DO know is that Obama was not running the show. We don’t know why.
You can bet that if Obama had been there or if there were any photographs of him there, we would have lots of evidence of that or the photos themselves. The fact that we have nothing is a very loud scream. That alone is reason enough for a Special Committee. And then you combine that with the interminable stalling and avoiding of the White House…
