It didn’t take long for the Democrat ruling class, infesting Washington’s power corridors, to become habituated to saying something and having it accepted as truth without question. When anything happens to disrupt their sojourn amongst the unicorns of their fancy, however, Democrats have a tendency to resort to doubling down on dogmatic mythology to score points, relying on volume and repetition instead of sense.
For years, despite the best/worst efforts of the Democrat party to subvert the cause and meaning behind the Benghazi attack, the people have remained outraged and have refused to be shielded from a Democrat political agenda that has yet to be laid bare. When e-mails, previously redacted and withheld from Congress, were unearthed by Judicial Watch’s successful lawsuit against The White House, John Boehner reversed his previous stance on launching investigative hearings on Benghazi. It appeared that not only had there been a deliberately fabricated tale, instructing Obama’s minions on what to say and how to say it, but the e-mail specifically stated that the tale was designed to serve the president’s agenda – to make him look good and deny that Benghazi had anything to do with faulty presidential policies.
The White House immediately began to try to defuse the bomb they’d launched. Jay Carney denied that he’d ever lied then denied that the e-mails, written in plain English, really were about Benghazi at all. But it was too late.
The story had exploded, and the demand for House hearings could no longer be dodged, even by Boehner. An undisguised antagonist of the conservative base, Boehner nevertheless appointed Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-SC, a hard-line conservative, to chair the committee. Gowdy’s appointment as chairman made matters worse for Democrats. Cue Democrat panic.
Depending on who is being quoted, Democrat strategy for containing the fallout is all over the map. Responses in the last couple of days range from muddled vehemence to sanctimonious pity to attempts to convince America that the committee is nothing but a political gambit. FOX News quoted Nancy Pelosi. Her comments appeared to display equal parts projection and Dissociative Identity Disorder: “What we’ve asked for is as much bipartisanship as possible,” but also, “[t]he fact is this is a stunt. This is a political stunt; that’s what this is. We’ve been there, done this, over and over again.”
