One of the most amazing things about the Benghazi story has been the spinning of it.
A successful attack on the US on the anniversary of 9/11 resulting in the death of a US Ambassador for the first time in over 30 years caused the press to launch an unrelenting attack on…then candidate Mitt Romney for intemperate words.
Nevermind the words were about Egypt, never mind that Americans were killed, nevermind that the administration falsely claimed it was all over a youtube video, apologized concerning the video and even now has the maker of said movie imprisoned. When Benghazi was talked about at all before the election, it was in the context of: “Boy that Mitt Romney is a nasty guy isn’t he?”
With the president safely re-elected the conversation started to change, the house planned hearing and some in the Senate starting showing backbone but the MSM had absolutely no interest in the story.
Then came General Petraeus forgetting that you had to be at the TOP of the chain of command to be able to sleep around with subordinates. Then came images of hot women, hot twins and a sex scandal involving someone who had been suggested as a possible future GOP presidential candidate.
Suddenly it was everywhere and because it was a sex scandal it wasn’t just on the news that people didn’t watch, it was in the entertainment shows that people not interested in politics watch.
Enter Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham and the invisible Senator Kelly Ayotte that included the magic words:
It’s certainly a national security issue but it doesn’t rise to the level of four dead Americans
That’s the bottom line, the MSM would like up to forget the four dead Americans and the lies that were told but now we’ve got babes and boobs so the story isn’t going anywhere, and yesterday’s Senate press conference provoked a direct response from the President.
Suddenly Benghazi is news, and it’s news the day of the House hearings with Petraeus testifying tomorrow.
None of this attention happens without the babes, the boobs and the sex. None of it!
It’s not fair, it’s a terrible thing that the only way these guys are going to get a chance at justice is because of a booty call.
But if it’s the only way this is going to happen, I’ll take it.
