1. The Democrats are waiting for information. The republicans are looking up

who legislated the troops into Niger and apparently it was Frederica Wilson who wanted the US to fight Bolo Haram: link curtesy of discussionist. Which goes to prove that democrats 'wait for the facts to become available' while republicans construct a 'narrative' immediately and put it on the internet. The two parties are not even playing the same game and are in separate worlds. I don't know how republicans live with themselves. As soon as Benghazi happened the GOP were on it politically because it was their chance at going after Clinton. Meanwhile Democrats were trying to report what they knew about Benghazi as it happened. Which was faulty at first and loosey goosey...not politically astute. Trump has been political from the get go on Niger by not reporting anything for the first few days. They see everything from a political telephoto lens. Republicans massage the facts. Democrats find the facts. I hope Democrats run on that difference.
