More liberals wonder why Benghazi scandal persists despite election being over

It was just over a month ago when Obama deputy campaign manager and lying liar Stephanie Cutter got the ball rolling, declaring that the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Libya was only an issue because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan insisted on politicizing it — a claim that seems even more outrageous in light of the “French kiss” of a third presidential debate.

Confronted yesterday with a question about Benghazi, Democratic Party Communications Director Brad Woodhouse replied by tweeting simply, “We won.” And yet the hearings continue, even though Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid yesterday smacked down the proposal of a Senate select committee. His reasoning? “The elections are over; it is time to put aside the partisan politicization of national security.”

This time it’s Josh Marshall’s turn to ask: Why won’t you wingnuts on the right just let it go? (Marshall is publisher of Talking Points Memo, which provides special snowflake Soledad O’Brien with her crib notes.)

Finding out the truth behind Benghazi isn’t going to change the election results, so why cling bitterly to that “tragedy”? Marshall asked, and conservatives answered.

Panicking? Well, even the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd in her Sunday column calls out Amb. Susan Rice for “renting her soul” in order to advance in the administration.

So, wouldn’t a thorough investigation put to rest the idea that there is something there? Those who managed to pay attention to the election and the developments in Libya can name quite a few things to investigate, actually.

Conversely, with the election over and Obama seemingly in office for another four years without challenge, what possible harm could come from asking questions if there really is no there there? Wouldn’t it be satisfying to shut down all those scandal-minded conspiracy theorists on the right by proving them to be just that?

In fact, Media Matters seems to think that Obama’s just getting more popular despite Fox News’ insistence on covering the story.

We know a lot of people are suffering from election fatigue, but forgive us if we’d like some straight answers once and for all.

Nope, that’s not it. It’s just sour grapes.

    Benghazi is not a win or lose political event. It is a terrorist attack again on Americans on 9/11. As an American I want to know the truth about what happened. Why was our Ambassador murdered along with three other brave Americans? Who spun what? Who told who to “stand down”? Why wasn’t help sent in the 7 hour fire fight? How many generals have been moved out of their positions before Benghazi after? Why did Petaerus change his story? Was the CIA holding prisoners at the Annex?

    Answer these questions honestly and all of the Benghazi questions will quiet down.

          Ah. The media. I’m kinda over them. They are so out of control, it’s ridiculous. I have decided to put them in time out. Even a screaming kid left alone in time out will eventually shut up or become hoarse. As long as they keep their butt on the floor in that one spot, I’ll let ’em scream as long as they want. I’ll wait ’em out. When they are quiet for an appropriate period of time, I will speak to them rationally. 😉

          And BBC? *sigh* Yes, it’s wrong that they are better.

            tessaprn made the claim that Cindy Sheehand was being exploited by the media as a good “prop”….ostensibly to advance its agenda. So, using her logic, I merely asked if that was the same reason the teabagger media was exploiting Benghazi……as a prop to advance Bitch McConnell’s(failed)agenda of making Obama a one term president.

            You may be too young to remember the 241 Marines who were killed in a terrorist attack in Beirut in 1983. Ronald Reagan, the conservative’s wet dream, did absolutely squat about it. What I don’t remember is liberals making political hay out of it. While I do remember liberals making political hay out of the Iraq War, people like you mocked them or challenged their patriotism for questioning the president and you still pulled the lever for the Shrub. As I said before, if you had nothing to say about the lies about America being taken to war over lies about WMD(a contributing factor in our economic hardships today), you have nothing to say about Benghazi.
            Fair warning….liberal though I may be, I tend to post like a conservative. Play nice….

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            So, you’re telling me, that Evil Bush, who thought up and executed 9/11 all on his own, also convinced the entire Congress to admit that we were at war with Iraq, and therefore proceed with the war declaration? Wow, Bush was a lot slicker than I thought!

          • Pater Tempus

            If you say so….but you sound like a 9/11 truther to me.

            I do not quite believe that the two are comparable. What is this problem with making the Benghazi political? I do not understand how it’s a liberal/conservative thing. 4 Americans were killed. Probably died thinking that the US would be saving them. Someone screwed up and they need to answer for that. BTW the election is over so what would really be the point for political purposes? What is the hard part about realizing someone screwed up and lied to the American People. You know well that if the president was a republican the democrats would not have a single problem attempting to discover the truth.
            So how abut putting all political crap aside look at the whole situation and then tell me how it is not important to discover how Benghazi happened. Some serious stuff was going down and mostly likely I would not be surprised to find the US was in the process of providing weapons to Syria.

          • Pater Tempus

            “What is this problem with making the Benghazi political? I do not understand how it’s a liberal/conservative thing.”

            Perhaps our friends on the right will be kind enough to elaborate. You know, the sort of people who throw around terms like “leftie” and “libtard” and “Obamunist”. I’m sure minds as broad as those will surely have some answers as to why they turned this political.

            As for me, I agree with you….it shouldn’t be a left/right issue.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            You throw around ‘baggers’ and I’m sure others, so how does that make you better? Your mind certainly seems as “broad” as those you are condemning, lol. Keep trying, though.

          • Pater Tempus

            “You throw around ‘baggers’ and I’m sure others, so how does that make you better?”

            1. As I explained to another blogger, though I am a liberal, I post like a conservative if provoked. Y’know….rude, condescending, disrespectful, etc.

            2. How are we supposed to refer to the wankers who staple teabags to their hats? Oh, hey….we can just call them wankers who staple teabags to their hats. Brilliant…..but that’s too much typing for my taste. Teabaggers will do nicely.

            3. People who “throw around” terms like baggers aren’t the ones who are trying to turn Benghazi into a political football. That is the strategy of people who throw around terms like “libturd” and “communist”.

            Ergo, those are the people best suited to explain why…..

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            How do you refer to black people leaving the merch tags on their hats/shoes?

            4 Americans dead, and you want to call it a football. And if any of those murdered were YOUR relatives? I think you’d be singing a different tune.

        • ajsdaddie

          How is this even relevant? Not one person here wants our soldiers to die. When they do, we grieve. If they die needlessly, we want to know why. You can use the WMD deflection all you want, but let’s get some things straight, shall we?

          1. Everybody believed it at the time (and many still do based on evidence found onsite)
          2. WMD wasn’t the only reason we went to war – check the resolution
          3. The US and the international community agreed on the action
          4. The war was prosecuted legally with complete agreement of Congress

          Let’s compare that to Benghazi, shall we?

          1. The terrorists told us they were going to attack

          2. It was 9/11
          3. They attacked
          4. The embassy screamed for help
          5. The White House said no
          6. People died horribly
          7. Susan Rice lied about it
          8. Obama lied about Susan Rice lying

          Yeah, they’re exactly the same.

          Idiot.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Oh hey, don’t forget we had no declaration of war when we ‘went into’ Libya to ‘assist’ with the pulling down of Qaddafi… whom, let me remind you, died in the same brutal way as Ambassador Stevens. Gee…

      No one has been exonerated of anything. This isn’t even begun to expose the truth. The President used the video excuse 12 days after the attack, knowing full well what happened that day. He is lying to cover his neglect of security for the Embassy personnel in Libya.

            Seems like you would want to pray for the continued health and prosperity of you and your loved ones and your country, but, oh well…….whatever.
            Let me clue you in on something….your hatred of Obama doesn’t hurt him in the least, but it does negatively impact your mental and physical health. Hating someone else is like you swallowing poison and expecting that someone else to die. Kind of a stupid idea when you drag it out of the attic, hose it down and trot it around the block a few times like Ross Perot’s ornery and stanky aunt.
            Oh, and one more thing…..impeachment is reserved for high crimes and misdemeanors in office. As I hinted to LoriKeet yesterday, that didn’t end well the last time those of your political stripe tried to use it as a partisan political weapon. You couldn’t even get 50 votes to remove Clinton in a Senate that had 55 Republican senators. Just how far do you think you’d get in a Senate that has 55 Democratic senators and two independents who don’t particularly like Republicans?

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            I’m sorry, but where did I state I hated Obama again? I do pray for the continued health and well-being of my family and loved ones. Which would include, in my opinion, the impeachment of Obama, since his policies are going to hurt my family and my loved ones. I’m sorry you’re so far in the tank for him that you can’t see what’s plain in your face.

            And by the way, when Clinton lied, nobody died. But I’m sure you’ve heard that lots, lately.

      Your math is fuzzy. The popular vote difference was over 3 million, and in the electoral college the final tally was 332 for Obama and 206 for Romney…..a 66% to 34% shellacking by any objective standard. You lost….and the sooner you come to grips with that, the better. We survived eight years of Bush….and we managed to do it without attempting to murder our spouses or committing suicide or filing secession permits or firing our employees out of spite or any of the other nutburger stuff our friends on the right have been engaging in in the wake of the election.

    McCain walked out of a classified meeting about Benghazi, but now all of a sudden he is interested and he wants a senate committee? by the way, Petraeus testified (yes he did, so much for any crazy conspiracy cover up theorists) that the government was intentionally vague about the nature of the Benghazi attack ,as not to tip off the terrorists as to how much US intelligence knew about them. This a common law enforcement tactic. Keep them in the dark. They put out disinformation before the WWII normandy invasion and it worked. You would think the republicans would get it’s a decoy. I guess they are only capable of making insults without any real argument, or they are just to stupid to grasp what it’s all about, they just willingly ignore the logical explanation for all this. And undermine US interests by demanding info that is classified for a reason.

      “Intentionally vague”? Um, it was a VIDEO. We heard ALL about it for two weeks, plus we got to see the mastermind behind it hauled off. Perhaps if we had been told that they were waiting for more evidence before making a determination (even though everyone but a moron knew it was a terrorist attack) instead of insulting the non-morons’ intelligence by laying the blame squarely on said video, O and his minions could possibly have a leg to stand on…at least for a couple of minutes. That is, until the “rest of the story” came out about the prior security requests, refusal to send help during the attack, etc. They have no one to blame but themselves for their response and any possible (but highly unlikely given this crew) repercussions.

    It’s bizarre that the left cannot see the wrong in all this.
    An American embassy is attacked, looted and burned, the ambassador and his staff are left to fend for themselves and the end result is four US State Department personnel are murdered on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the POTUS and his staff lied and denied everything. Spineless or stupid I don’t know, but at that level of power absolutely unacceptable.

    This is not a win/lose or liberal/conservative anything! It’s about 4 dead Americans who were killed while employed by the US government who expected to be protected by this country. Why anyone would look at this as some political BS is ignorant beyond belief without morals or ethics. Damn already! Would those who see this as something political feel the same if it was their husband, son, brother who died because of the lack of action by the United States of America who has absolutely no problems or difficulties helping the rest of the world? Harry Reid needs to have his old butt kicked with a boot all the way back to Nevada and then everyone who has continued to vote this fool into office needs to be slapped. Harry Reid is one of the big problems of this country. I would like to know why one person voted into office by one of fifty (or is that 57) states can dictate to the other 49 (or maybe 56)?

    Are they idiots? Let’s see – President sat in a room and watched 4 American heroes get slaughtered. And all the while knew he could have called in back-up to save them. The general and admiral that he told to stand down know what happened – and they’ll talk. Honestly, it doesn’t take a very intelligent person to see that Obama is covering all this up.
