Do enough people care?
I’ve noticed that the Benghazi debacle has spawned a few articles critical of Obama in papers like the Times and the WaPo. I think their willingness to be a bit hard on Obama over this (although never as critical as they should be) is that they realize it’s safe—that most people just don’t care about this stuff.
I hope I’m wrong, but my guess is that if you were to poll 100 of your friends (other than politics-obsessed blog readers, that is) on this incident and its aftermath, you’d find a lot of “huh?” responses about anything but the very broadest notions—such that there were some riots somewhere, an ambassador of ours was killed, and it was about some anti-Muslim video.
I’m in a very cynical frame of mind today.
