BLUE ASH, Ohio – Former Sen. Fred Thompson today said he was “totally disgusted” by the Obama administration’s handling of the Libya terrorist attack, saying that U.S. officials failed to act “while our people were being systematically slaughtered” at the Benghazi consulate.
Speaking at an event sponsored by the free-market group Americans for Prosperity, the former Republican senator from Tennessee invoked his experience nearly 40 years ago as a Watergate investigator, saying that Congress must “get to the bottom of” the administration’s failures in the Sept. 11 incident that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead in Libya.
Blue Ash Ohio? You would have bet no member of the Mainstream media would bother to be at Blue Ash Ohio to hear Fred talk to a 40 person crowd, and you would have been right…if you didn’t know a fellow named Robert Stacy McCain:
My mind wasn’t on Benghazi much, and when we got there, the sleep shortage started catching up with me. Quite literally, I was nodding off at one point during Fred Thompson’s speech. And then Fred started talking about Benghazi.
He never raised his voice, but he was clearly angry and, when it was over, it was obvious that Fred had definitely made news:
When a member of the crew that investigated Watergate tells you something is being covered up, you had better believe it.
But just as significant is this tweet:

“Ali and I were the only media in the room.“ The MSM didn’t find this event interesting enough to bother with.
If you ever question the usefulness of actual shoe leather reporting, wonder no further.
And as more of this information comes out the Democrats might find themselves fortunate that Barack Obama will not be in office after Jan 20th:
Though they do not realize or choose to ignore it now, the Democrats will be lucky if Obama loses on November 6.
If he wins, not even the mainstream media will save him. Although a few will try, the walls are already crumbling, first, tentatively, from David Ignatius in the Washington Post, now more strongly and courageously from ABC’s Jake Tapper. More will follow. They will be forced to as the revelations pile up and the justifiably angry whistleblowers, which are sure to come, emerge. And we in the new media will be here to make sure attention is paid. We have the power to do that now
And don’t doubt for one moment that a GOP house will be investigating this.
President Obama has already cost plenty of democrats their political future, God help the party if they find themselves forced to choose between defending the him on Benghazi or no.
It is really no choice at all, the Activist Black Community who are the party’s foot soldiers and the pastors after choosing their skin color over their God, will not tolerate any other choice.
Benghazi is a national disgrace, but for the Democrats it’s a disaster of their own making. It remains to be seen if this disaster will effect the entire party or just this administration.
