I go back to the notion that nothing happens in a vacuum, especially in DC.
We watched as Romney went after Obama on this issue in debate #1. We also watched as he suddenly went into defensive mode when Obama voiced his false indignation of the charges leveled by Romney. Then in debates #’s 2&3 Romney never brought it up again.
Seeing that Romney was not his own man through the campaign, it bring me back to my opening statement above. What happened behind the Mordor Curtain between 1 and 2? Something came to light I believe and couple that with how horribly the state of the union has been slipping.
So, if Romney were to win, the media would have pounced on him from day one and never let go. They would have turned the narrative that all the problems were now his fault, yadda, yadda, yadda. Benghazi would never have been brought up again because a Romney administration would not want that distraction and we know how the GOPe is deathly afraid of rocking the boat.
Maybe someone in the GOPe ivory tower figured out just how bad it was about to get no matter who was at 1600 and decided it would be better for the Democrats to be at the helm when the Crapola hit the fan. That way, the Democrat Party and Progressives in general would bear the brunt of a far worse coverup than some janitor happening to find a piece of tape on a door jamb.
The rats will just blame Bush and the Republicans, and the low information voters, formerly known as idiots and chumps, will believe everything they say.
This is the substitute lie they've trotted out to replace the now totally discredited OFFENSIVE VIDEO!
it would have been enough to convince Romney that the issues are too complex to be explained during a campaign ~ which, in fact, was true ~ but campaigns aren't for the purpose of arguing out the details of events where none of the participants are involved. They are, instead, for the purpose of rallying one's own troops and discrediting the other side's legitimacy.
Romney didn't need to argue a single detail ~ just accuse the Obamistas of betraying our troops in the field and killing an ambassador!
It's always been up to the Democrats to prove Obama and his crowd made the correct decisions ~ and they still can't do it.
BTW, the fact the Democrats so easily and effortlessly disarmed Romney is pretty much a sign that he had no more business as President than did Obama ~ both losers ~ both stupid.
What happened between 1 and 2 is that Romney believed he was so far ahead in the polls that he didn’t need to go hard on the attack.
In hindsight, Romney’s internal polls and some formerly reliable national polls were way off the mark.
Romney went into election day believing he had it in the bag. He was blindsided.
