The President Clinton impeachment era–what an era of infamy. It all started with the GOP searching for anything they could to impeach President Clinton. They decided he could be impeached because he allegedly lied about having sex with a consenting adult-which the rest of the world considered to be lunacy, and his testimony including “meaning of “is” is” made them apoplectic. The GOP House impeached President Clinton even though they knew that the Senate would never force his removal.
Now they are fixated on Benghazi. Our May 2013 article “The GOP is Hoping to Reignite Disapproval of Hillary Clinton Through the Tragedy in Benghazi — Nothing Has to Be True–the GOP Only Has to Attack Hillary Clinton” explains that the GOP fears Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The article described that the GOP couldn’t help itself, it had to attack Hillary Clinton. The article made it simple math:
1 The GOP House wouldn’t provide adequate funds to provide security for the Beghazi outpost. If they had then there wouldn’t have been an attack in Benghazi.
2 The GOP is ranting about how the administration mislabeled this when they referred to a spontaneous anti-American sentiment originally. History is history and days later, in the second Presidential debate no less, President Obama referred to the attack as act of terror.
3 There was no cover-up as Hillary Clinton commissioned an independent report regarding it. To further the basic math analogy–independent reports and cover-ups exist in mutually exclusive sets.”
Usually the cover-up of a transgression is what ruins a politician-refer to “Tricky Dick’s Watergate cover-up”, but Hillary Clinton had no malfeasance to conceal.
The article “Benghazi Will Never Go Away” illustrates why the GOP wants to keep the misinformation continuing.
The article states “And Republicans clearly see benefits in keeping Benghazi in the headlines. “For Secretary Clinton, Benghazi will be the defining event of her tenure as Secretary of State, so if she chooses to run for president, avoiding addressing the questions head on will not be an option,” said Tim Miller, the executive director of the Republican opposition research group America Rising.”
The GOP couldn’t get away with this if there weren’t suckers who slop up this tripe and if they didn’t have propaganda organs-FOX and radio show of Rush Limbaugh and others of his ilk to play it continually. The Eagles song “Dirty Laundry” contains the lyrics that the GOP propaganda organs use as their reason to be :
“You don’t really need to find out
What’s going on
You don’t really want to know
Just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry”.
The GOP has failed with their spurious outbreaks against the Clintons before. Yes they impeached President Clinton, but during the impeachment proceedings President Clinton’s popularity skyrocketed. There are GOP operatives who realize this, and do they want to do this as Hillary Clinton is campaigning for President?
