Another ‘Obama scandal’ quietly dies

Politico - What has become of the Benghazi investigation?
Politico: After months of fiery hearings and vows to get to the bottom of Benghazi, House Republicans are now barely making a peep when it comes to an issue they once couldn’t stop talking about.

Democrats say Republicans are lacking damaging evidence against the Obama administration in the aftermath of the attacks on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Libya. They argue the House GOP is in retreat over the investigation that some conservatives believed could bring down the White House or tar a 2016 presidential candidate.

“I know our leadership in general does not want to look at that at all,” Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) said. “They’ve said they have very little interest.”

An aide to one House leader dismissed the notion that leadership is uninterested saying, “That claim is ridiculous, just totally, out-to-lunch, La-La Land absurd.”
Of course leadership isn’t interested in further pursuing Benghazi — it didn’t go anywhere. It just wandered around in circles until it finally died. It doesn’t matter how much of a frenzy you whip up over something, you can’t make your baseless outrage create its own foundation. Reality does not bend to the conservative will, no matter how much they insist the opposite.

So whatever happened to Benghazi? The same thing that happened to Solyndra and “Fast and Furious" and the idiotic birther crap and etc. — Republicans went on a fishing expedition where there were no fish. And now they want everyone to forget they ever went at all.
