As a Conservative, I targeted Benghazi and Fast and Furious because I thought SURELY the liberals had enough brain material in their skulls to realize that their beloved leader was corrupt, incompetent and a liar in those blatant examples. How could ANYBODY not see that Fast and Furious was a stupid political stunt by the administration to get gun control legislation? And that it cost a border agent his life when (predictably) the plan failed? How could ANYBODY not see that Obama and his cronies were covering up their incompetent handling of Benghazi with the highly implausible excuse of the YouTube video? Who wouldn't be insulted by such a stupid political trick?Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”
We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.
Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.
I was wrong. Liberals aren't that bright. They can be swayed by the media to believe anything-- that it's perfectly reasonable for a young woman attending a high-priced private college to expect somebody else to pay the $16/month for her birth control pills, and anybody not wanting to buy them for her hates women. That it's perfectly reasonable for Lord Obama to moan about how the sequester is going ruin lives in the US, then fly off to Florida at taxpayer expense to play golf with Tiger Woods.
If ANY conservative flew off to play golf, or fly 60+ people to Spain for a week-long party on the Riviera the media would devour him. But Lord Obama's media let's it slide, and the libs are too stupid to realize what is going on.
