Ever since the bridgegate story broke, Republicans have been trying to deflect with Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi....

So let's look at the similarities and differences between the two

Well, both happened in September, I guess that is the same

With Benghazi, Obama claimed it was caused by a anti Islam film.......Republicans claim he lied
With Bridgegate, Christie claimed it was caused by the Mayor of Ft Lee not endorsing him.......Democrats claim he lied

In Benghazi, AlQaeda were the terrorists
In Ft Lee, Republicans were the terrorists

Now some differences

Fox covered Benghazi for a year and a half straight.
Fox covered Bridgegate for ten minutes and then reminded viewers about Benghazi

No one died because lanes were blocked on the bridge (the one death was not due to the traffic stoppage, relatives of the deceased have confirmed that)

Christie did not lie for a month about it or blame it on a video

Christie fired those responsible immediately, Obama fired no one.

The two are not comparable in any way. Sorry, libs.

Ok, lets do that. Both parties voted to authorize and fund the fiasco known as the Iraq war.

Benghazi was the result of incompetence, lying, and political manouvering by Clinton and Obama.

The fact that you would attempt to equate those two proves that you are a disengenuous brain dead libtardian fool.

And Bush's Iraq clusterfuck?

4 Americans dead in Benghazi, 4,000+ Americans dead in Iraq and over $4t squandered for no real reason at all. Iraq still isn't free, there weren't any WMD to pose any kind of threat, Colin Powell committed treason on global television at the UN by lying the United States into an endless, unwinnable war, thousands of homeless veterans have been left on the street with undiagnosed PTSD, and there actually weren't any ties between Iraq and 9/11 so all of it was for nothing.

So let's focus on Benghazi because that's so much worse.

I thought it was called the 'Fat and Furious' scandal. What does this have to do with a bridge?

We agree that Iraq was a waste of american lives and money, so was Viet Nam, So was Kosovo, so was Afghanistan.

The problem with your argument is that both parties voted to authorize and fund those stupid wasteful wars--that accomplished nothing.

Everyone believed the bad Intel about WMDs, Bush and Powell did not make it up because they love war. The quotes from prominent dems have been posted many times, the UN authorized it, most of the world supported it.

Benghazi, however, belongs solely to Clinton and Obama. They did not want to admit a terrorist attack just before the elections. So they let americans die and then lied for months about why it happened.

The NJ Governors office conducted an act of terrorism against the people of Ft Lee. No different than if terrorists blew up two lanes on the bridge to block traffic

Intentional acts to cause harm to innocent citizens

Also, dems were terrorists in the Benghazi and IRS deals. You forgot to add that in.

"terrorize" is the wrong word, "inconvenience" would be more accurate.

Yes, he admitted it and fired those responsible. Has obama fired anyone for Benghazi?

Christie took responsibility, fired a top aid and stood up to an hour of hostile questions by the media. After Benghazi Obama skipped town, nobody was fired, the media generally ignored the story, and Hillary faked a dizzy spell and screeched "what does it matter" when finally questioned by friendly congressional democrats. The NY Times covered for Hillary and Benghazi with a story which became a joke when was so obviously faked that nobody believed it.
