Benghazi: A Joke to Many Democrats

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:10 am



People died and Hillary Clinton could have prevented it, and Republicans are upset, ha ha!

For the people who need it explained why this isn’t funny (i.e. some Democrats), here you go. (H/t my little sister.)

    Got it?

    …the President and the Principals discussed specific measures we are taking in the Homeland to prevent 9/11 related attacks as well as the steps taken to protect U.S. persons and facilities abroad, as well as force protection. The President reiterated that Departments and agencies must do everything possible to protect the American people, both at home and abroad.

    A day ahead of the anniversary of 9/11 they were sending press releases out about how they were all over the situation.

    Next day they were whining about how nobody could see a damn thing on the horizon. And, my gawd, who is to blame for giving every single guy in the military the day off. Why, we just couldn’t respond to a contingency 90 miles away from major NATO bases.

    Now we can’t conduct a NEO in Yemen because…

    I hurl, folks. Which I guess is good for the garden.

  7. my gosh, i am not one who wants to see people lose their jobs. but how does he still have his present job?
    bigger problem than Benghazi being a joke is that the vast majority of the American populace does not even know what Benghazi means. and the MSM is not going to tell them in the 18 months. After all, what difference does it make?

  8. That photo of Ambassador Steven’ corpse being abused should be on every campaign ad against Hillary!. If I were running for President I would make it my priority to inform every man, woman and child exactly who Stevens was and what Hillary! allowed to happen to him.

    Steve57 (cd6f9a)

  10. BTW, seeRpea, that clown doesn’t have a “job” as you and I understand one to be. He is an operative of a corrupt organization unencumbered by either propriety or honor and answerable only to the Party Bosses.

  11. i’m not a benghazi person

    but other people are and I’m ok with that

    it snowed last night, just a little

    Actually Steve57, these fools didn’t deserve them in the first place. They are beneficiaries of the Peter Principle.

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  13. What exactly do you mean you’re not a “Benghazi person”?

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  14. it’s just not a thing for me

    I’m more of a Blue Bell ice cream person

    and a saving-up-my-games-of-thrones-for-a-marathon person

    and a person what’s a little bit averse to going to a “rowing class” after work on mondays

    and a miranda lambert person

    but benghazi not so much

    happyfeet (a037ad)

  15. I still don’t get it happyfeet. You mention a whole lot of nonsense and reiterate the Benghazi theme. Are you saying the murder of 4 Americans and subsequent cover and denial is not important to you but ice cream is?

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  16. no Hoagie, not quite. happyfeet is confirming my point in #7, a lot of people just
    don’t care about it, even those who know about it.

    seeRpea (1427f4)

  17. Happyfeets, if you ever wonder why the administration’s supporting cast is so incompetent, reflect, if you will, upon who would work for such feckless and manipulative crocodiles. Remember Hillary trying to recruit the parents of those killed in Benghazi as salesmen for her PR campaign to assign blame to the man who made the silly video? She had latched upon that as a smoke screen to obscure her responsibility for the fiasco. That tells you all you need to know.

    Mr. Reif probably (rightfully) regards himself as a cut above his colleagues at the DNC. He was just trying to recruit a few more with similar word skills. I think he’d do better if his photo showed him in his pajamas, but otherwise he was on target.

  20. yes yes #16 is pretty much my response for you Mr. Hoagie – it’s just not a thing – i can’t do anything with it – it happened and now we have more things happening and so it goes

    Mr. bob the whole fiasco was extremely mortifying for anyone watching

    but it also struck me as being fairly accurately emblematic of what america is anymore and who its ruling class are

  21. the soft bigotry of low expectations

    yes i do it on america

    i just keep setting the bar lower and lower

  22. Let’s not forget the year long lead up to the night of the attacks. A political calculation was made long before the attack to reduce the security of our diplomats in Libya to reinforce an Obama/Clinton campaign meme. Along the way multiple opportunities to re-think that decision were presented and rejected by Clinton, to the point of State telling the security people in Tripoli to stop asking for even a continuation of the existing level of security and accept the planned reduction.

    Then there was the inaction of the military to preposition assets near N. Africa and have air assets on stand-by for a 9/11 anniversary while jihadists were spreading violence throughout the region. Was it shear incompetence, or the result of Pentagon directives? There were some unexpected resignations of commanders in that theater of operations (N. Africa, the Med and Europe) – were they fired or could their consciences take no more of this politicization of the military from this administration?

    Good to know that Dems see nothing there to discuss.

    in_awe (7c859a)

  23. 21.the soft bigotry of low expectations

    Sadly, happyfeet, I understand you and agree with you on this. The leftists in this country from clowns like Obama, Hillary! and Reid down to the ignorant foot soldier like Perry have eroded the very political, social, cultural, military and moral underpinnings of our once great nation. These pigs have succeeded where neither Nazi nor commie could. And it looks like there is no end in sight until we are no more than a bankrupt banana republic, if we will still even be a republic.

  24. Were you all similarly upset by President Bush’s joking about the inability to find WMDs in Iraq?

    Jonny Scrum-half (3c74ef)

  25. Leftists are so predictable.

    JD (416a58)

  26. I honestly don’t understand why it doesn’t get more play. It isn’t just that it happened (bad enough). They issued a press release a day ahead of time saying they were ready for it.

    On the other hand, this is probably why I added “Leg Humping” to MFM. I was surprised every time I turned on the TV and Dan Rather or Connie Chung didn’t personally polish Bill Clinton’s brass.

    OK, so I guess I do honestly understand.

    You’re going to provide the video link which proves your assertion, right? Cause I recall Stewart and Colbert “joking” about WMD’s but not Bush and certainly none of the thousands of Kurds who were murdered by the weapons that leftist pigs deny existed.

  29. Hoagie@28 – It’s the 2004 Radio and Television Correspondents’ Dinner. Here’s a link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvliUuXjbL4

    Jonny Scrum-half (3c74ef)

  30. Hoagie@28 – I agree that WMDs aren’t a laughing matter, but your reference to Kurds being murdered was in 1988, correct? Not in 2003?

    Jonny Scrum-half (3c74ef)

  31. spending my earth day

  32. look there’s Johnny Scrote
    doing what a scrote does best
    suck Johnny Scrote suck

    Colonel Haiku (029078)

  33. Then you do admit they had WMD? And since they had them in 1988 it is safe to assume they had them in 2003, is it not? Or did you see a press release declaring they were destroyed, moved or sold? Thank you, that’s all I needed to know. The video of the correspondents dinner was a nice touch, thank you again. However, I think he was poking fun at himself unlike leftists who can only make fun of others.

    Now we do know they had WMD and we know they used them. So where is the dispute? The entire world including a vast amount of American Democrats thought Iraq had them too. Were they all lying? or was everybody but Bush just wrong but Bush was lying?

    BTW, Bush was almost as much of a leftist as is Obama so I don’t understand why you guys hate him so. Oh wait, the (R) after his name. My bad. I think it’s way past time for the Democrat party to just admit the obvious and join the CPUSA. Cut the charade already.

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  34. BTW Leviticus, your video proves only that a leftist pig with limited editing ability can slice and dice clips together in an effort to harm a political enemy, embarrass the US and look stupid all at the same time. “Big F’n deal” as Biden would say!

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  35. Leviticus – care to rip that even further out of context?

    I see half-sack wants to play SQUIRREL

    Hoagie, you could stop embarrassing yourself at some point. There was no “leftist editing ability” involved in the video that Leviticus posted. We’re all aware of what happened in Kurdistan, but you, sir, are not a help to the conservative cause.

    carlitos (c24ed5)

  37. You da man, Colonel Haiku.

    Hoagie, not sure what you’re arguing with me about. You’re acting as if I accused Bush of lying, or that I said that I hated him (in fact, I voted for him in 2000). I just wanted to know if your outrage about jokes concerning tragic foreign events was limited to Twitter postings by employees of the DNC.

    Jonny Scrum-half (3c74ef)

  38. Carlitos – no editing in that link? Really?

    JD (416a58)

  39. I didn’t watch that link, but I had already watched the original video of the WH correspondents’ dinner. My bad. I didn’t realize that what he had linked to was such an edited montage of anti-Bush stuff. I viewed a few seconds and thought that it was the actual video of the dinner. Again, my mistake.

    Leviticus – I hope that this was an accidental google-error on your part? Not cool, my friend.

    carlitos (c24ed5)

  40. I was wondering why you jumped on me carlitos. It was obvious to me in ten seconds it was nothing but and edited clip and splice of anti-Bush nonsense.

    And no Jonny Scrum-half, my outrage as you call it is not limited to tragic events posted on twitter by DNC operatives. But Bush at that dinner was being self debasing whereas the idiot on Twitter was making light of four dead Americans and using such for political reasons. That’s just my opinion and as is whether or not I am a”‘help to the conservative cause”. I think I am, carlitos thinks I’m not. What can I say?

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  41. No worries. He said the words, in an awkward attempt at self-deprecating humor. What was linked to was a complete bastardization of his poor attempt at humor.

    JD (416a58)

  42. “Leviticus – I hope that this was an accidental google-error on your part? Not cool, my friend.”

    – carlitos

    I thought the video was limited to the joke from the WH Correspondents dinner. Didn’t realize it had extra stuff.

    Leviticus (f9a067)

  43. The thing is JD, we just went through 7 years of every time Obummer did or said something his answer, and that of his defenders was ….but, but Bush! Are we going through another 4 years of Bush did it!, if the GLBSTG witch gets elected by the 50.1% who pay no taxes and suck the life out of those of us who do?

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  44. The death of 4 americans is not a joke. And your ignoring the deaths of over 4000 americans in iraq from neo-con lies about nuclear weapons in iraq is no joke either!

    the dead (65b292)

  45. teh dead’s a hoser, a knob or a yohan… take yer pick.

    Colonel Haiku (9930d4)

  46. The dead is Perry and no neo-cons lied about any nuclear weapons in Iraq. Another dirty, despicable leftist lie. Nothing unusual about that though.

    Hoagie (58a3ec)

  47. Leviticus – didn’t the name of the person that created it make you think?

    JD (3b5483)

  48. Perry is disturbed. Profoundly. He has way surpassed imdw in fake names, IP addys, and generalized hatred.

    JD (3b5483)

  49. 45. The death of 4 americans is not a joke. And your ignoring the deaths of over 4000 americans in iraq from neo-con lies about nuclear weapons in iraq is no joke either!
    the dead (65b292) — 4/22/2015 @ 3:37 pm

    So the lie boils down to this. “We went to war over nuclear weapons in Iraq.”

    As it must, as the indictment against Saddam Hussein was lengthy.

    And, true.

    Steve57 (cd6f9a)

  50. If a mob boss is acquitted of one or two charges in a 52 count indictment for lack of evidence, that means the prosecutors LIED about his guilt.

    Completely innocent, the man was, the left says. Who cares if all the charges about support for terrorism, theft of Kuwaiti property, kidnap of persons, etc., were all proven.

    This is the headwork that will lead to Iran getting nukes. Because while blindfolding us and tying our hands, the left will now demand absolute certainty or else condemn any action as based on lies. Not simply based upon the lack of information since they’ve agreed to a “deal” that renders the situation unknowable.

    No informed opinion about Iran’s nuclear program is is going to be even possible. As intended.

    Steve57 (cd6f9a)

  51. We now live in a world where we get lectured about the evils of Bernie Ebbers. By he likes of John Corzine. And Hillary!

    Thanks, Jonny. We sometimes forget how great Bush was at being humble and self deprecating, That was a good speech and I enjoyed it even more seeing the insane comments following as the BDS was raging at the time.

    Have you ever seen Obama or Kerry laughing at themselves like this ? The left is totally humorless. They make nasty gibes at enemies and think it is funny.

    Mike K (90dfdc)

  53. And your ignoring the deaths of over 4000 americans in iraq from neo-con lies about nuclear weapons in iraq is no joke either!

    The left is good at ignoring the facts and making up stories that help them to feel good about their miserable lives.

    You mean like Hillary! giggling about killing Qaddafi? “We came, we saw, he died.”

    Yes, I saw how he died. At one point somebody rammed a knife up his @$$.

    And let’s pause right here. I have zero sympathy for the former Desert Duck. I just wouldn’t have turned his killing into a spectacle. Which Hillary! seems to have enjoyed. Her, and Holder, and the rest of the terrorist defense bar would be screaming “war crime” if it was anybody else.

    God forbid anyone gets water poured on their face. Unless it’s Qaddafi. Then a bayonet up the sphincter is a joke.

    One suspects Qaddafi’s real crime was cooperating with Bush. Because Iran has killed more Americans, and this administration just loves them some Supreme Leaders.
