If the press had paid half the attention to the Obama admin's progressive reductions in the guard force at the Benghazi compound, even as terrorist attacks and bombings increased there all summer, while Obama was running for re-election saying the terrorists were "on the run".......

...somebody might have been prosecuted by now for the deaths of four Americans including and Ambassador. Or at least fired.

But noooo, we can't have that.

Scream at Chris Christie (R) instead! One of his aides deliberately caused a traffic jam!

A senior citizen died in the traffic jam. Maybe Christie will be appointed to the death panel.

Christie is blowing a PR opportunity.

All he has to do, is stage a press conference and yell, "What difference, at this point, does it make???"

He'll be his party's frontrunner for the 2016 Presidential nomination in no time, just like the other candidate who covered up a scandal (albeit a far worse one) and then said that.

BTW, is there ever a time when they don't have a traffic jam around the GWB?

He'll also need to raise his hands up and wave them frantically. That should do it.

In 2011 and 2012 Republicans voted down a request from the State Department for more security funding.

Did Republicans hope an attack on Americans overseas would be successful, so they could make political points on it?

I would not put it past them.

LINK PLEASE ~~ Media Matters is NOT a reliable source
Seems that you missed the congressional hearing that prove that it was the SOS that refused any protection in Benghazi. They were begging for protection especially on 9/11. It was refused on multiple occasions.

Bullshit. Benghazi was never about funding...as the OP author clearly explains, it was about Barry the Fairy getting reelected....Barry lied, 4 died.

The press did investigate, so they say, and they rubber stamped the administration's story. Except I am not sure which story they rubber stamped since Obama said both.

Republicans imagining things again. The media reported on Benghazi for months. Hell we're still hearing about it.

This little traffic jam scandal will be gone in a week
Running cover is not reporting.

The Benghazi deaths that Hillary "took responsibility for". Hussein's obstruction of the Benghazi deaths, the death of the Border Patrol agent murdered with a weapon that the ATF shipped to Mexico, the IRS spying that the head of the IRS "took responsibility for" all pale in comparison to a traffic jam in Ft. Lee N.J.

Neither is speculation. When the "liberal" media starts reporting that Christie was single-handedly behind this and should be sent to jail because it's the biggest scandal of all time... then I'll listen.

More partisan rightwing ignorance and nonsense.

The media would love nothing more than Benghazi as a real scandal; nothing sells papers better than the impeachment of a president.

The media are motivated by profits. Period.

The media has been in Obama's corner since Matthew's leg started to tingle.

Let me ask you a question. Was there a live feed, to anywhere, of the events as they unfolded at Benghzi?

" that the ATF shipped to Mexico"

It's statements like that are so beyond the actual facts of the matter that the matter can't even be discussed.

Really what did you expect? Obama has been getting hammered 24/7 over Obamacare--and the press (while they tried) couldn't ignore it any longer. Now they have Christie.

Furthermore no aids would ever do what this person did, cause a deliberate traffic jam, not unless there was a history of doing it in the Chris Christie realm and they've been getting away with it for quite some time.

IOW--you can stick a fork into Chris Christie--he's done. And there most certainly will be other shoes to drop on this candidate--now that the gate has been opened.

How odd that you missed so much of the Benghazi coverage. It was quite overwhelming.
