You accuse me of ignoring facts...I applaud the Republicans for searching for the facts.
I accuse you of raising strawmen...you raise more.

How can everyone on either of the two sides find hypocrisy so easily and never realize they are hypocrites?
I try to avoid it personally, but I would expect everyone would say that, and yet, here we are, "they did worse".
I don't think people are capable of even being honest with themselves anymore.
I thought it was stupid to whine because people used an actual gun incident to promote the dangers of guns. Seriously, what other way can one promote the dangers of guns without pointing out the deaths and tragedies associated with them. It was not like people wanted the deaths of those in Sandy hook or other places to happen. I guess the same could apply to benghazi if it were actually about the dead people and demanding solutions for state department people serving in dangerous areas. Where i can say people who want gun control really want lives to be saved and want gun violence to stop, I cannot say that people actually give a damn about the dead state department people in benghazi. No, the attacks on benghazi are really about obama and hillary.
You look at the whole benghazi investigation and it is all about how can we blame Obama and hillary for this. No one is going on about the dangers state department people have had to endure. No one is worried that this is certainly not the first or most bloody incident of death for the state department. GWB had over 20 times more terrorist killings of foreign representatives in embasies than benghazi. before him other presidents would lose far more than 4 people to terrorist attacks on state department people. Yet we do not hear discussion on how to make these embassies and consulates safer. We have had no suggestions by the right on how to actually improve the safety of foreign consultes. No one is suggesting banning a consulate or ambassador from libya. No one is saying we should have a massive military presence in libya if we are going to have state department people there. no one is blaming libya for lax security or denying american troops access to their country to save the ambassador, or insiting that american military can move on foreign soil if american ambassadors are under fire. The full solution for the right in this case is to point the finger at obama and Hillary and the problem is solved.
That is why the right raising money off of these deaths is truly despicable and wrong. They don't care about these 4 deaths. They do not care about the families of the victims. they do not care about all the other state department people out there who still have security weaknesses and work in hostile areas. All they care about is blaming Obama and hillary and nothing else. Every time there is a school shooting the anti-gun crowd comes out and pushes for legislation that is proven time and again in industrialized nations to lower gun deaths and crimes, and to lower homicide rates and suicides. They push these issues even during times when school shootings are not common, and they just use the regular every day gun violence that goes on in america. They care about stopping these tragedies and making them harder. The republicans and benghazi have done none of that. They are not raising money to stop the next state department deaths. they are raising money to stop Obama and Hillary.
Don't get me wrong. if you want to pitch in money to stop obama and hillary that is certainly part of politics. If your purpose is to stop state department deaths it does you no good to actually put blame on just Obama and hillary because so many other people are involved and it happens on the watches of both dem and rep presidents.
No, we don't look stupid. I reserve that to the sort of thinking that thinks that killing a smelly old man would dissuade Islamic militants from continuing to attack. Now, killing them, in vast numbers, might help.
