…it’s how much time you can put between You and Your Lie, until Nobody Cares Anymore.
Benghazi does not seem to want to go away.
I have made my position on this debacle very clear. Just tap “Benghazi” into my search window.
But this new development is different. (Abandon hope if you are seeking answers. This is about a weak President with a small nod to the 2016 race.)
What interests me now is the dynamic between a past Secretary of State who is a Socialist Presidential Hopeful and a current Socialist White House. It is not secret that these two simply do not like each other. They never have. And with Hillary’s declared interest in the Presidency removing the “choice” President Obama had in regard to whom he will support, it should be interesting as to how the Benghazi issue plays out.
What I mean here is that it typically takes the power of the Executive to put as much time as possible between the “Lie” and the “Discovery of the Lie” in order to dampen public interest regarding the event “Lied” about. Only TIME will let the public “not care”… in other words the old go-to line of “That’s Ancient History so Who Cares!?” only works with a Liberal application of time.
Remember, all political malfeasance is judged in the court of public opinion.
Hillary does not appear to have even the paltry Executive support she had when she was acting Sec. State. She also does not have the warm fuzzy relationship which might aid her in acquiring help from that Executive. It’s important to remember that the idea of Biden stepping aside for Hillary to assume the VP slot was seriously considered, but somewhere it was quashed… and there was a reason, either Hillary refused or the President refused. This is not how a Village raises it children to behave.
(It is my assessment that this idea was quashed somewhere within the White House as it would only benefit Hillary to assume “pole position” in the 2016 Presidential Race by being VP. She would not have refused this contrary to supporter assertions… she is not stupid. May be one day we’ll know for sure and it will only interest idiots like me. Time…)
So this leaves a couple of fun possibilities.
The Clinton’s are a Machine… they know where the skeletons are and have shown in the past that they are not afraid to let them “accidentally” fall out of the closet.
This latest “discovery” of the talking points regarding Benghazi being altered by someone could be a shot across the bow in terms of Hillary not feeling she is receiving the help she should expect from the current Administration. (Granted, this Administration is finding stormy seas as far as advancing their own agenda… but this is about Hillary! At least that’s how Hillary sees it.)
As this moves forward, which it will because the Republicans smell blood and know a few weeks of hearings regardless of outcome burns yet more time the President might have to push his ideas, we should expect to see some “discoveries” of White House involvement. That is, of course, if the White House doesn’t get its mind right and jump on board the Hillary Express.)
The Clintons are not above throwing those they don’t get along with under the bus if it serves their needs, even if they are Fellow Travelers.
The other possibility is a full-throated defense of Hillary by the White House… which would be the largest overt example of Obama’s weakness we may have yet seen.
Close your eyes and picture a wrestling match between Barack and Hillary in Singlets. All sweaty… grunting… with Bill sitting nearby watching with a strange, oddly fascinated leer…
