Benghazi and the October Surprise

By Bill Maher
 
A new e-book came out this week called A Bad Day On The Romney Campaign: An Insider’s Account. It was written by Clint Eastwood’s chair. No it wasn’t, it was written by some whiny grifter named Gabriel Schoenfeld, who was a “senior advisor” to the campaign. The book focuses on the day of the Benghazi attack, and how Mitt Romney tripped over his dick.
The mission in Libya was still on fire when Mitt issued a statement — based on the Twitter feed of someone in Cairo — claiming it was all Obama’s fault, because we apologized for that internet movie that insulted Allah. It was stupid, tone deaf, inaccurate, half-hearted, phony and entirely beside the point, or what’s now known as The Full Romney.
Schoenfeld writes:
“The Romney campaign’s statement of September 11, 2012 had left the candidate naked, embarrassed, and disarmed.”
Try getting that image out of your head.
But I think it’s important because it helps explain why Republicans are such crackheads about Benghazi: It — or something like it — was supposed to win Romney the election. His campaign was designed to stay competitive, sing “God Bless America,” and wait for Obama to screw up. Benghazi happened and Mitt booted it. That’s why they’ll never let it go.
Remember the “47%” video? Romney is asked about the October Surprise, when Reagan got elected and Iran magically gave us the hostages, and why Romney can’t “duplicate that scenario.”
Romney: I appreciate the idea…(blahblahblah Russia, Iran, nukes, China, Jimmy Carter)…if something of that nature presents itself, I will work to find a way to take advantage of the opportunity.
Something of that nature presented itself — four brave people dying violent deaths — and Mitt tried to take advantage of it, but he couldn’t. Because that bastard Obama cheated and rewrote the memo.
And that’s how you understand Benghazi: Work backwards from “Republicans are supposed to win.” Don’t follow the money. Follow the entitlement.

Why won't the progressive left point this out. I find this totally amazing that republicans are still beating this dead horse over Benghazi but never once investigated all the embassy attacks during the Bush admin. 1/22/2002 Calcutta India 5 dead, 6/14/2002 Karachi Pakistan 12 dead, 10/12/202 Denspar Indonesia 0 dead, 2/28/2003 Islamabad pakistan 2 dead, Riyadh Saudi Arabia 36 dead, 7/30/2004 Tash Uzbekistan 2 dead, 12/6/2004 Jeddah Saudi Arabia 9 dead, 3/2/2006 Karachi Pakistan 4 dead including diplomat David Foy, 9/12/2006 Damascus Syria 4 dead, 1/12/2007 Athens Greece 0 dead, 3/18/2008 Sana'a Yemen 6 dead, 7/9/2008 Istanbul Turkey 6 dead, 9/17/2008 Sana'a Yemen 16 dead. It's also amazing to see how the GOP cheered the sequester that cut millions from the State departments fund for embassy security. Also, if the Republican Congress would not have voted against the request for money that State department needed for embassy security perhaps Benghazi may not have happened. Tell Congress to get back to work on the real issues!
