Scapegoating or Trolling for a President?

The Republicans are not after Susan Rice; they are after President Obama. They believe that he did not tell the nation that the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack because he felt that it would negatively affect him in the election. They must believe that the only reason he won the election was because he killed Bin Laden and so many other key al Qaeda people. They must believe that we, the American people think that al Qaeda has been wiped out and is no longer a threat. However, I, for one, don’t believe either one of these things. It is a terrible thing when an American ambassador and his staff are murdered. However, not one of us thinks that either the President or Susan Rice is responsible for these deaths. While many Middle Eastern states are in the midst of chaos we may not have any way to adequately defend our people who serve in these areas. It seems we need to hold off sending in our people until an unstable government coalesces into one that is functioning well. This is the real lesson of Benghazi.


So the only thing  the Republicans are up in arms about is what the administration told the American people about Benghazi. I don’t know if Obama kept terrorists out of the news for political reasons but I don’t think knowing the answer before the election would have changed the election results and I don’t think the GOP will be able to impeach the President now. The extreme positions of the Republican Party and their exclusivity caused them to lose the election. Stop investigating the President and find the people who committed these murders. Investigate what the intelligence community could have done to prevent or repel this attack. Find out what we need to do so this will not happen again. Then you need to stop trying to distract us from solving our financial issues. Stop turning Susan Rice into a scapegoat. Stop pushing your passive aggressive Benghazi dialogue, in which we have no interest, and solve the tax issues that Americans want you to resolve. And please don’t forget to raise the debt ceiling.
