    Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    I seriously doubt the Republicans who keep harping about Benghazi care about the four people who died September 11, 2012. They are in my opinion using their deaths for political gain, they want to use this tragedy to weaken the chances of Hillary Clinton should she decide to run for president in 2014. They misquote what Clinton said during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Jan. 23, 2013, they say she said "What difference does it make?" Here is what she actually said:

    "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."

    pbrauer: they're doing this because of what you just said. Presently the GOP have no real candidates to run for President. Chris Christie has his problems, and one other candidate that might have a chance is Jeb Bush; however, he will probably divide the party because he will either tick off the Tea Party half or the Mainstream portion.

    Yes, yes they are. That's not to say that their counterparts wouldn't do the same under similar circumstances, or that their weren't legitimate failures in the chain of command, but they certainly have milked the event for all the political capital it's worth.

    Just like how Democrats exploited the whole Iraq war and their were no WMDs thing. Point being that all political parties do it, it is politics after all.
