In response to slomag's comment:
What do you expect to see tomorrow? Do you think Romney is going to double-down on the coverup / youtube video angle, or is he going to pivot to the requests for defense argument, like ThatWasMe? That argument is pretty weak, too, though - the only request for additional security at the Benghazi consulate was for one more agent to be statiioned there, and since there were two agents traveling with Stevens, there was actually one more agent than was requested. I don't see where Romney's argument will be. He'll either sound a lot like George Bush, or he'll have to do a lot of agreeing with Obama.
Mittens will double down on the lie and the wingnuts will stick their collective heads up his rectum in agreement.
The truth is that wingnuts, as a group, are the type of low/no information ideologues that politicians drool over. They are low maintence, nose-to-rectum lemmings that are more concrened with the source of information rather than it's accuracy.
The whacko wingnuts as a party have made a living disparaging sources without actually challenging the facts. MSM has become a dog whistle for the wingnut faithful. One toot, and the lemmings instantly disbelieve an article purely on it's origins rather than on it's substance.
I've never heard so many supposedly adult people try and blame so many of their failures, from their poor election performance to their constipation and pre-mature baldness, on some vast conspiracy of media outlets and Dems.
It belies a habit of lazy thinking and a predisposition of a 'victim' mentality.
Their vast conspiracy memes in general and the MSM conspiracy meme in particular is a manisfestation of their persecution complex combined with their psychological projection. It is the "I'm a victim" attitude combined with the need to avoid personal responsibility.
They need someone to blame, a strawman, because they can't deal with the reality that their ignorant ideology has proven to be a failure of epic proportions. Whether it be the collapse of the "self-regulated" finacial sector or the fragmentation of the middle east or the trillions of dollars and thousands of lives lost in the clusterfvck of foreign policy with Iraq as it's enduring emblem, they need to project those failures onto someone/something else.
This why they keep up the 'personal responsibility' crap. Because they have none and by trying to project it onto others they hope to avoid the obvious.
The "47%" lives mostly in wingnut states. The wingnut states take more welfare from the federal gov't than they pay in taxes.
Pointing out the tax benefits enjoyed only by the wealthy not avialable to all is "class warfare". Attacking the working poor for using the same tax code that all Americans can use and which the wingnuts themselves created and once trupeted as an achievement is somehow not class warfare.
Actually, after putting just a few of their epic failures in pixels I can see why they feel the need to escape from reality.
The magnitude of the catstrophe that is the wingnut party is alarming.
Still no excuse to drink the kool-aid, though.
Can't wait until Nov 6 to tune into MSNBC and watch them cry the night your cult leader joins the 23 mil searching for work.
