We must be getting somewhere, part II: Bob Beckel loses it about GOP Benghazi investigations

Last week, Nancy Pelosi showed signs she’s weary of talk about “Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi.”

On The Five yesterday, Bob Beckel picked up where Pelosi left off when he parroted Hillary Clinton about Benghazi in responding to GOP investigations: “What difference does it make?”

Response: “Because they covered it up, Bob.”

Beckel: “So what?”

This is what the Obama defenders are reduced to:

Get that? Beckel admits there was a cover-up but says Republicans shouldn’t investigate because they don’t really care about the cover-up part or justice for the victims — they just want to bring down Obama.

At least somebody on the Left is admitting there’s much more to the story than Obama’s flacks are letting on. Baby steps.

The libs are really flipping out now, and as the old saying goes, when the flak gets heavy, you know you’re over the target.

We must be getting somewhere, because Nancy Pelosi is irritated by questions about ‘Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi’

To Pelosi’s credit, at least she didn’t say “dude, that was two years ago”:

This of course means that everybody should keep talking about Benghazi.

The subject of Benghazi is “diversion” and “subterfuge” so the GOP doesn’t have to talk about what exactly? The Obamacare the majority of people hate and economy that continues to sputter? You can really sense a Dem circling of wagons on this, mostly to save Hillary’s 2016 hopes.

By the way, State Department emails immediately after Benghazi immediately attributed the attack to an Islamic terrorist group. Three days later Hillary was consoling families of those killed by assuring them that she’d get the people who… made that YouTube video. Four days later Susan Rice was still blaming the video. Nothing was going to ruin the Obama campaign’s “Al Qaeda is on the run” line heading into an election.

Passing thought: It’s amazing what Susan Attkisson can report now that she no longer works for the brother of Obama’s deputy national security adviser.

Barbara Boxer tries to sound hip, fails miserably

Get Sen. Barbara Boxer out of her only area of expertise, which is promoting the killing of the unborn, and she’s even more of an embarrassment than usual:

As for her whining about a “living wage for all,” you can apply for an unpaid internship to work in Boxer’s office here. Nope, you won’t even get “50 cent” for your efforts, even though they were a good “singing group,” or something.
