People always make things out to be bigger than they really are

So many letter writers continually want to bring up the Benghazi “scandal” instead of admitting that the puff of smoke they see in front of their eyes is actually New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s chances of ever living in the White House going up in smoke.

Want to discuss Benghazi? Let’s do just that. Security was insufficient? Perhaps funding could have been increased, but Republicans cut embassy security funding by $128 million in 2011 and $331 million in 2012.

Then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that the Republican cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security,” but Republicans disagreed.

End of discussion.
