Sen. Harry Reid calls Amb. Susan Rice’s critics ‘unmoored from reality’!/samsteinhp/status/273561631320064000

Yes, the same Sen. Harry Reid who spent much of the year imagining what secrets were lurking in Mitt Romney’s tax returns is now proclaiming that those demanding answers from U.N. Amb. Susan Rice on her “blame the YouTube video” tour are “unmoored from reality.”

With Rice’s story of the “spontaneous protests” in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 thoroughly debunked, reality is what “certain Republican senators” John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte are trying to uncover in their meeting with the ambassador today. But as we’ve been told again and again, what’s the point of uncovering the facts now? The election’s over.

In a statement released today and tweeted by Reid’s communications director, Reid joins the “we won” crowd in calling for an end to the “personal attacks” against Rice.

Reid stmnt: “The personal attacks against Amb. Rice by certain R senators have been outrageous & utterly unmoored from facts and reality.”

Reid cont’d: “There should be no place for such blatant partisanship in oversight of our nation’s intelligence community.”

Reid cont’d: “The election is over. It is time to drop these partisan political games & focus on the real challenges facing us as a nation.”

One simple solution to the “blatant partisanship” would be for the Democrats to join in the search for answers. There are still plenty who believe the Benghazi investigation is much more than a game.

Harry #Reid says that the Repubs wanting more answers on #Benghazi are “outrageous”. This is NOT a Rep/Dem issue…four people are DEAD….
