Every time the US is attacked Republicans see an opportunity to seize power. Republicans aid and abet terrorists. Every time.
Jennifer Rubin, in her Washingotn Post Op-Ed consuled Mitt Romney to attack President Obama,
After Sept. 11, 2001, there were no terrorist attacks on the United States, but during your administration there have been the jihad-inspired Fort Hood massacre and the killing of four Americans in Libya, so isn’t your anti-terror record worse than Bush’s?The DC Sniper murders and the Amerithrax attacks don't count. And the attacks on American Consulates during Bush's Presidency don't count. And even though the Fort Hood murderer joined the Army when Bush was President that doesn't count. Also the 9/11 attacks, which Bush had multiple direct and specific warnings about, don't count.
But, this has quickly been picked up by Faux News, as Eric Bolling proclaimed the Benghazi attacks to be "Worse than Watergate". "We were certainly safe between 2000 and 2008. I don't remember any terrorist attacks on American soil during that period of time." - Eric Bolling,
Mike Huckabee, who freed over a 1000 convicted felons, happily freed Maurice Clemmons who then went on to murder 4 Seattle police officers, is demanding wide ranging investigations, into his shocking derelitcion of duty,
"Richard Nixon was forced out of office because he lied. And because he covered some stuff up. I’m going to be blunt and tell you this. Nobody died in Watergate. We have people who are dead because of this. There are questions to be answered and Americans ought to demand to get answers.”Oh wait Huckabee isn't speaking about his Dereliction of Duty while Governor! He gets religious immunity for commuting Clemmons' sentence because Maurice had repented and come to jesus, thereby washing Huckabee's hands of that killer's actions.
Like all Right-Wingers who Defended Bush's complete and total Failure over 8 years, Huckabee wants an immediate investigation and impeachment hearings from "Worse than Watergate" because...
As Huckabee said about the Phony Iraqi WMDs, "Just because we didn't find them, it doesn't mean they weren't there..." So while there's no evidence, Huckabee can always claim just because we didn't find it, doesn't mean it isn't there. Q.E.D.
This isn't shocking. This isn't unexpected. Republicans and Conservatives have been attacking America and siding with our Nation's enemies for decades. Wheether they be Islamic terrorists in the Middle East or economic Terrorists, like Bain Capital and Mitt Romney. The Right has only one goal; Total Hegemonic Control of the US in order to Destroy Democracy and install a Neo-Feudalist Wage Slave State.This right-wing attack is nothing more than a warmed over update of the evil John Bircher smear of President Roosevelt, that FDR knew and let the Pearl Harbor attacks occur. While back then the Koch Father had only a miniscule group of fringe Birchers pushing lies, today every evil lie the Right concocts is taken up and pushed by prominent Republicans and conservatives.
