I was asked , what could Obama possibly gain by setting up the Benghazi attack and the "coverup"- Whatcould possibly his motive?
He didn't set it up. It caught him totally pants down Whether Hillary set it up is another question- now that the problem of Old White Guys has been settled, Obama can be discovered to be "Not Authentically Black" and Incredibly Incompetent and we can go back to trusting the Feminist wing of the Dem Party, with President Biden "Gracefully" bowing out of the 2016 election, and allowing Hillary "her " turn.
Anyway- The point is that Obama is like the school yard bully who has his "Gang" do the actual fighting. ( Except for that not so secret mission when he sneaked in with the seal team and personally killed bin laden) He has no idea about the dynamics of a fight. He thinks he has the "respect" of the Arabs because he rolls over and presents a throat( Not his, of course) ( He KNOWS that it's "just for show", cause all his politically appointed Generals tell him how powerful he is) He truly is dumbfounded when they actually rip out the presented throat. Well, shoot, it wasn't like it actually killed anyone important- the important thing is to not let the attack be perceived as a weakness, or an indication of the actual strength of Al Queada- at least until after the elections. ( Which are the only thing that matter to him)
So, gosh, it is too bad that we're listening to these guys dying in real time, and we could send in a gunship in about an hour - but that would just enlarge the incident. I got a Big Day campaigning in Vegas tomorrow, tell everyone it was a "Flash Mob" pissed off about a video. Yeah, Petraeus knows better, but now would be a good time to let him know that we know about his affair with his biographer.
Motive? no "motive" at all ( unless Hillary had something to do with it- she and Bill are pretty good at that game, too)
It's a pure case of "cover my ass " with whatever is available ( General Petreaeus, Susan Rice, The CIA, the FBI, the Military)
Like the guy in ZoNation says, the day of the Doughy old White guys is over. The fight now is between The Fems and the Ethnic. Joe Biden is just another doughy old white guy. (And Obama will be found to be a classic suburban Oreo who never knew what it meant to grow up black, in sharp contrast to the FIRST "black" President, Lyndon Johnson -er Bill Clinton. ( Which one of them was it said " I'll have those n***** voting Democratic for the next 100 years? smart man. )
Seriously, at the VERY BEST Benghazi is indicative of incredible incompetence. But so far, the Buck never stops with Obama. (Teflon Presidency, anyone?) So tell me, is Bush did it, Right? ? or is it Hillary? ( And her old buddy Dianne Feinstein)
I'm not trying to be offensive, but you are old enough to remember Watergate, and I'm old enough to have voted for Nixon in one of the greatest "Landslide" presidential elections of all time. This 2012 election was just barely by a majority, and a majority voted to keep a Republican house. The Dems may have the senate, but they are STILL deeply divided over Obamites and Hillarycrats. Guess who holds THAT "majority"?
And right now I can tell you, there are a lot of doughy old southern white guys who are wishing that THEY' had voted for Hillary Clinton. I sure wish I had- no, wait, I did. ( Does the Primary count? cause after that in 2008 I was stupid enough to vote against John McCain)
So, 2016- Do the Catholic Latinos and Baptist Blacks vote for the Immoral Doughy Old White Lady or the Dynamic young and Moral Catholic Latino, Marco Rubio?
