Allahpundit included this in last night’s QOTD post, but it’s worth a separate look. If you’ve already watched this once, try this thought experiment the second time through.  Pretend that the topic isn’t the terrorist attack on

Via the Standard, which has a transcript. You’ve watched a lot of clips about Benghazi today but none of them bring home the anguish of Stevens and his team finding themselves defenseless inside a terrorist maelstrom the way this one does. Her

Two weeks ago, he trailed Obama 48/43. Today: Romney 46, Obama 45, which is nearly identical to what Reuters’s latest tracking poll shows. Add the Fox poll to the new Gallup and Rasmussen trackers and a couple of others, and voila — a 1.5
