Compare and contrast:


The Pet Goat vs. Going to Sleep During an Attack

Remember The Pet Goat? That was the book that President George W. Bush read for seven (7) minutes to an elementary school class after he received word of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Bush was pilloried mercilessly for his “inaction”, even though the Secret Service is reported to have requested the delay to enhance the president’s security for the trip to the airport.

How does that compare to Benghazi? Eight months after the slaughter of Americans, we still don’t know what the president did after a 5pm ET meeting with SECDEF Panetta. No one knows, but many have surmised he watched sports and then went to sleep to prepare for a fundraiser the next day.

Cindy Sheehan vs. Pat Smith


The mother of a fallen soldier during the Iraq War, Cindy Sheehan became a poster child for the Democrat-media complex. No less a vintage media star than Maureen Dowd stated unequivocally that “the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute”.

As for the mother of murdered diplomatic official Sean Smith, Dowd is less vocal. Silent, even. Pat Smith has struggled to make her voice heard because, though apolitical, her message is one of pain, grief and anger. “They want to shut me up,” she’s stated, referring to the Obama administration that has treated her with utter disdain…

What difference does it make, death is a part of life, and what’s the big deal here? DC Democrat Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton doesn’t understand What’s the Big Deal here about Benghazi. You know, four Americans dead, Hillary Clinton’s cover-up and lies. Obama giving two stand down orders and refusing to protect the Americans at the Benghazi consulate? Yea, that’s the big deal here Eleanor…

Fox News George Soros monkey Sally Kohn calls Benghazi a ‘molehill’

Sally Kohn is a George Soros stooge, and was hired by Fox News for whatever reason. She’s an obnoxious leftist, and tries to act like she’s Rachel Maddow or something. Now, she’s declared that Benghazi is ‘barely a molehill.’

State Department in contact with Shabazz family, not Benghazi families

In case you missed it, racist Malcolm Shabazz (the grandson of Malcolm X) was killed yesterday in Mexico City. Don’t worry though. The State Department is in contact with the Shabazz family…

…Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith who was killed at Benghazi also revealed tonight on the O’Reilly Factor that she has heard NOTHING back from Obama, or the State Department since the funeral for the four dead Americans on September 14th 2012…



Update: ‘That really pisses me off!’: Dana Perino blasts Bob Beckel over Benghazi BS ; Update: Perino slams media’s double standard

…This afternoon on “The Five,” Beckel attempted to compare Benghazigate to events that took place during the Bush Administration. Big mistake.  Perino absolutely tore into her co-host for his raging case of Bush Derangement Syndrome and for suggesting that Republicans’ outrage over Benghazi is overblown…




Media Matters’ Benghazi analysis: More people died at embassies when Reagan was president

…Now it’s Media Matters’ time to shine. The Obama administration sent forth its best and brightest to explain to the American people why Benghazi doesn’t deserve our attention, and the answers just weren’t that compelling: the terrorist attacks that killed four Americanshappened a long time ago, and what difference, at this point, does it make?…
