    one reason only.  During Romney's thankfully failed campaign, they were trying to do a swift boating jiu-jitsu Rovian thing on the President - turning his strength in foreign policy into a supposed weakness.  Al-Qaeda really hadn't been severely weakened according to them, because they were killing Americans in Libya! Obama really sucked at foreign policy after all!

    Obama executed a nefarious plan to try to hide this fact, and personally took over and dictated the lie, according to their complete fantasy, that this was just a riot over an inflammatory movie.

    Of course, back in the real world, outside the FoxHole, people were disgusted that Romney and the goopers would shamelessly politicize the deaths of 4 people. They did and still do look ridiculous harping endlessly on why the second by second absolutely correct timeline wasn't put out within a couple hours after an extremely unfortunate incident. They seem even more desperate now to try to take the wind out of the sails of a future possible Democratic candidate - almost 4 stinkin' years before the election!  Of course there are lessons to be learned - but they could care less about that.

    Even after all the instruction they are being given not to mention rape, and not to hold the country hostage, and so on, the Republicans cannot help but continue to inflict serious damage upon themselves.
