Benghazi was doing Romney more harm among independents than he was gaining off of has adoring base by discussing it. For the most part, his adoring base stayed in a bubble unable to see things objectively which led to their shock and dismay the morning after.<quoted text>
OR Obama's incompetent, the MSM buried the stories until AFTER the election, and Romney ran a conservative campaign after winning the the 1st debate. The MSM admitted after Romney failed to challenge
Obama on Benghazi in the 3rd debate, "if Romney's not gonna bring it up, why should we"?
As for the congressional seats, pay attention. I'm not a political junkie, only a street urchin. I'll leave the ins and outs of CSpan I and II to those who're more interested.
They did Romney a favor not talking about the drone being shot at. All that would have done is remind independents and the military already weary from war how anxious Romney was to go after Iran.
The bubble is kind of like you just ignoring the fact that the Republicans lost seats in the Senate and the House. It allows you to just focus on one Presidential election where you can't see what it is really about.
