Time to stop politicizing attack

The GOP needs to stop politicizing the Benghazi consulate attack that resulted in the tragic deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. But with Mitt Romney flip-flopping on positions as often as fish fly through the air at Pike Place Public Market, Republicans know they have nothing substantial to offer voters, so exploiting Benghazi remains their best plan of attack.

Republicans and their FOX media cohorts have their sights on President Obama as being the person responsible, but they dare not mention that the GOP-controlled House slashed $300 million from the embassy security budget. The political rock throwing by the GOP has reduced their proverbial glass house to sand. It’s time to end the finger pointing and wasting resources politicizing the tragedy; it’s time to move forward and tackle the real issues that affect our nation, security and economy.
