Watch what they leave out

I just love the convenient editing done by the Benghazi Brigade on Hillary Clinton’s remarks: “...what difference does it make....” That really sounds shallow at best.

(But) her next sentence was, “It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.” I think that sentence sounds somewhat reasonable — wonder why it didn’t make it into the sound-bite world of Fox News.

The other thing I have trouble with is the 10 American embassy attacks when President Bush 43 was in office. A combined total of 60 Americans were killed. Where was the outrage? Where were the Congressional hearings? Where were the self righteous Teapublicans?

Now the great Lindsay Graham has vowed to stall/hold up nominees for the Federal Reserve and Homeland Security. Maybe we were better off when the Teahouse shut down the government.
