GOP: Republicans show hypocrisy on Benghazi

All this noise and pretend outrage over the attack in Benghazi and President Obama. Where were these so-called patriots when 4,000 Americans died in Iraq for George W. Bush’s and Dick Cheney’s lies? Not a peep out of any of them, even now, when the lies have been proved.

The Republicans refuse to acknowledge that they were culpable for the ruse that led to our war in Iraq and all those American lives. Considering the 12 embassy attacks that occurred during Bush’s term never resulted in months of questioning by the Senate, it seems just a tad bit hypocritical.

Before anyone goes off on the whole “Everyone believed Saddam had WMDs, even Hillary Clinton” line, I did not support her for the 2008 Democratic nomination for just that reason.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., just keeps beating a dead horse, enjoying his TV time and hoping that more citizens will jump on the bandwagon and remain enraged. All of this hoopla continues while the Senate refuses to accomplish anything whatsoever to solve the myriad of problems in this country. However, the House has managed to vote 37 times to overturn Obamacare, to no avail.
