The entire GOP theory-of-Benghazi rests on the inane presumption that Obama wanted the embassy destroyed because he's an evil Mooooozlim who wants the terrorists to win. Anyone who believes this nonsense must be nuttier than a jar of Skippys. So why do the Republicans continue to push this myth?
gives the game away. After firing up his audience with the prediction that the worse-than-Watergate Benghazi scandal will drive Obama from office, the Huckster reaches the point where he has to close the sale:
Huckabee, however, said his predication about Obama “will not happen” if the Democrats seize control of the House and retain control of the Senate next year.
“If they’re able to get control of the House and maintain the Senate, this will not happen because they won’t let it happen,” Huckabee said.
Notice that there's no expectation here that the Benghazi thing can be blown wide open before
the next round of congressional elections -- which is, of course, what Huckabee would tell his audience if his fantasies about Benghazi reflected any kind of reality. Huck has signaled that the GOP intends to keep this pseudo-issue alive all the way through 2014, as a way of rallying the troops.
