SHILLS AND SHYSTERS WANT YOU TO INVEST IN THE BENGHAZI BUBBLE

 

   By William Boardman  Email address removed

 

   "I think this is a cover-up, I think this is more significant

   than Watergate -- no one died at Watergate." 

      Former Bush White House aide Ron Christie,

         on MSNBC's The Ed Show, October 18, 2012

 

News bubbles are essentially the same as housing bubbles, stock bubbles, or tulip bubbles -- the longer they last, the more detached they become from recognizable reality.  Like any other bubble, the current Benghazi news bubble started growing when a few people with a self-serving agenda decided to inflate the importance of something that does not have anything like the value that they claim it has. 

 

If the administration's handling is a cover-up more significant than Watergate, then what is being covered up?  Sean Hannity launched the cover-up meme on September 20 on Fox News, without explaining exactly what was being covered up or why, just that it would somehow help the President's re-election. 

 

On June 17, 1972, the first day of Watergate, the issue was clear: burglars caught at Democratic headquarters were connected to the Nixon Administration, so inquiring minds wanted to know: what was the nature of that connection?   The unfolding of Watergate was fact-driven, slow, painstaking, and long.  But the crimes were real. 

 

By comparison, the Benghazi bubble is political fast food, all over-heated conclusion without any of the intellectual nutrition of logic, honesty, basic facts, or good faith arguments.
