Rachel Maddow on 2012 Election Results

There is so much win in this clip!

"Ohio really did go to President Obama last night, he really did win. He really was born in Hawaii, and he really is, legitimately, president of the United States again. And The Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad. Nate Silver was doing math.

And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes. And evolution is a thing! And Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us. And nobody is taking away anyone's guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism."

"Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us".  

Perhaps we should revisit that one in a few months. I see Rachel Maddow as equal to Bill O'Reilly and I take anything either of them say with the knowledge that everything they do is entertainment based on not real news. 

As for Benghazi, something went horribly wrong and that needs to be investigated. When one of our (contract) soldiers defies direct orders to go and save people and dies in the process, something isn't right. The news media these days is either in the tank for one side or the other.

We live in more dangerous times than ever because nobody is really paying attention to what is going on.  If you want my view on government, watch the movie "The Tailor of Panama".  That is a more accurate representation of how these things work.  The idea that our government agencies are stocked with James Bond's or Jason Bournes is a silly hope. 

Where there is smoke there is fire, and in Benghazi there is a lot of smoke.  I'll give Rachel her due on some of the rest, but not on that one.
