Benghazi? Anytime you hear a Repuke bring it up, just ask them "So what country IS Benghazi in?"

I'm betting 7 out of 10 will not be able to name Libya.

9 out of 10 won't know that it's a Mediterranean coastal city.

4. Ask them what the Benghazi-investigations were supposed to find out.

How many will remember that the Republicans tried to prove that HRC should have been pre-warned about the violent protest due to an online-video calling for said protest?

How many will remember that HRC supposedly reduced the security at the Benghazi-compound, even though the Republican-controlled Congress reduced security to save a few dollars?

7. Wow! "Silly chronic drivel spewing ultra rads on the far left".

So, you really thinks those are the ones dividing this country? Of was that meant just for DUers?

12. Really...

I happen to know and like quite a few rural redneck blue collar types with sweaty brows and venison in freezer.

They are not the problem.

It's the racist white assholes that are the problem and dividing this country. We damn sure didn't vote for the Orange Jesus.

15. Wethinks you perhaps protesteth too much as well

"Classical Liberal thought, not radical leftism."

There is barely any "radical leftism" alive in the US, and certainly very little among elected Democrats.

By world standards, Democrats in the US would count as a center to center right party. Just because Republicans programmatically, propagandistically use phrases like "the extreme radical left" whenever referring to anyone to the left of Genghis Khan doesn't make it so.

16. Equating those embracing massive deceits with all those who don't

as "rather literate" on the subject seems like painting with strokes so incredibly broad they leave all facts behind.

If there were even a kernal of truth to THIS false equivalence (ME?! THEM???), I'd have to be really upset. As it is, I can't even be insulted.

Oh, welcome to DU and goodbye in case I don't happen to see you again.

10. I always ask them who was responsible for guarding the consulate.

They always....always...say the Marines. They are wrong. It's the Host Country that guards' consulates.

The Marines guard the Embassy.
