I don't know if this is accurate  
There's a meme going around saying, "More Americans died in the last hour from their governor blocking Medicaid expansion than died at Benghazi." I dunno, maybe it's a whole day.

Good idea, but it shouldn't target the Benghazi incident. It should target something the GOP was rightly blamed for, instead of something Hillary was wrongly blamed for.

I like it. This thing Hillary is being blamed for is trivial vis-a-vis what the Republicans are doing.

The 1983 bombing of the embassy in Beirut (17 Americans among the 63 dead) followed by the bombings of the Multinational Force barracks buildings (241 American servicemembers among the 307 dead) and the 1984 bombing of the Beirut embassy annex (2 Americans among 24 dead).

But, y'know, St. Ronnie couldn't have been responsible for any of those, especially the second and third attacks in the same city...who could have predicted them?

Aside from 1983-4 being long ago and far away, now I think Supergee was right about it needing a Democratic fault to contrast with the GOP governors deliberately cutting Medicaid.

I'd rather see a real Dem fault, instead of the mixed Benghazi thing being blamed on Hillary. But maybe the Democrats don't make real mistakes. Something about Obama's drone killings, maybe?
