  •  No, I think they saw it as a twofer. (9+ / 0-)

    Now it is just a "onefer": Kill Hill's chances in 2016. They know she is a threat, even if they gerrymander every state and fuck with the electoral college. She could win and they know it. This will make it harder for her to win, along with her health issue.  These are power mad thugs.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

    •  I seriously doubt that was on Gov Romney's mind (0+ / 0-)

      It was Gov Romney who got the GOP involved with Benghazi as an issue. Had it worked it'd have been President Romney running for re-election in 2016. So I don't think twofer was part of the plan.

      Now that the GOP has to run out the clock on this ploy, in order to pretend they were sincere in the first place, if some soil sticks to the SoS so much the better. But I don't think the GOP honestly feels Benghazi is going to do much of anything to anyone's reputation.

      It was a plot to get at President Obama, it failed, and now the GOP is just going through the motions.
