The mother of Ambassador Chris Stephens would like the Republicans to stop using the name of her dead son for political gain. Seems fair.

Courtesy of CNN:

The mother of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, who died during the 2012 Benghazi attacks, penned a short letter to the editor of The New York Times asking that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and the GOP stop invoking her son's death. 

"I know for certain that Chris would not have wanted his name or memory used in that connection," Mary Commanday wrote in the letter, which was published Saturday. "I hope that there will be an immediate and permanent stop to this opportunistic and cynical use by the campaign." 

The Benghazi attacks were frequently mentioned in speeches at this week's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where speakers used it as a reason presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is unfit for the presidency.

I seriously doubt that the Republicans will stop.

After all they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel to find things with which to attack Hillary Clinton, and they only have respect for the dead when bringing up those deaths make THEM looke bad.

Besides they only respect the wishes of mothers whose children died in Benghazi when it furthers their political agenda.

    New York Times can you also tell Donald to stop rubbing his daughter Ivanka's hips?

    Go rub on your 3rd wife, Ivanka's stepmother's hips.

    Also stop telling everybody you would date her if she wasn't your daughter and stop slobbering over her body.

      Melania probably doesn't let him. The only one who does is the one who he's been grooming since she was a little girl.

      They look like idiots. They only do damage to themselves and Sanders. When Sanders gives a supporting speech at the convention, they will turn on him, too (as some already have).

      Apparently, from relative living in Philadelphia, the Bernie supporters demonstration was six miles from the convention site. There were no problems for which we are all relieved. Bernie's delegates will get to post their votes during the roll call. What more can anyone do for them. Role out the red carpet???

    While I sympathize with anyone who has lost a child, Patricia Smith's speech was deplorable.

      That woman has lost her mind in grief and is being manipulated for political purposes. Certain people keep her in perpetual anguish to trot out periodically when they do their Benghazi routine. If they really cared, they'd help her get treatment.

      If she wants to be pissed at someone, direct that anger at Dubya/Dickhead.

      Why, how kind and thoughtful of you to compliment yourself on your sympathy for the devastation of others!

      Such largesse! Who are you, Donald Trump?

    Behind Hillary’s Mask

    ...The Republican convention last week made it clear how vicious this campaign is going to be — the only real platform appeared to be the desirability of locking Hillary Clinton up, and she was blamed for everything from ISIS to the kidnapping of Nigerian schoolgirls. Donald Trump painted a picture of a wrecked, emasculated America in a dystopian world created by Obama-Clinton malfeasance. We don’t know yet whether Clinton can counter forcefully with a sunnier vision. What we do know is that she won’t be cowed.

    Whatever her defects, she is a candidate with a very long and event-filled history of toughing things out, who finds solace in stupendously hard work and in doing her homework. She’s one of the best-known people on the planet, but she can happily spend a day listening to complaints about watershed pollution or flying halfway around the world to sit through a conference on sustainable development.

      Yeah, while Junior states that Daddy will put Pence in charge as he sits behind the Oval Office desk with his feet up taking credit for "making America great again." Gee....who does THAT sound like.

    I admire Chris Stevens so much for his bravery and compassion. From all I read back in the days, Mr. Stevens would not like the GOP version of the truth about Benghazi. He was aware of all he faced and was proud of what he did. I hate the GOP for their devaluation of Mr. Stevens. No, I despise them for it.

    dRUMPf and gang are vile and evil. Ever notice that those 2 words have the same letters?

    Of course they won't stop. They care absolutely nothing about dead ambassadors, or they would have raised and unholy stink about the 60+ ambassadors who died on Shrub's watch.

    May the GOP/Teas go down in flames and never rise again.

    Obviously no one here cares one bit about the truth as long as Hillary gets elected. So sad how the Democrats have lost all morals and integrity, just to keep the status quo in place.

    1. Anonymous10:30 AM

      Obviously you can't handle the TRUTH, that is why you continue to beat a dead horse.

      I would like to know how much time you spent protesting all the bombings when Ronnie, and the Bushes were in office.

    I believe his mother already asked the GOP to stop using Benghazi for political gain once before.

    I guess they only listen to the mothers that want Hillary hanged.

    I loathe people who swoop like vultures for political points without taking the family's grief into consideration at all. Yeah, I've been guilty of it, like the tears I shed when the road rose up to meet Andrew Breitbart after his fat clogged arteries couldn't take it anymore, but he was one of those who took pleasure in other people's time of loss for political gain or just because he could.
    I respect Mr Stevens and his service to our country, HE was a true American Hero and servant to others less fortunate. I apologize for my fellow "humans" who'e drug his name through the mud and spread lies about his death.

    The dumb b1tch (mom) obviously is obviously suffering from some kind of bent, misguided Democratic Stockholm syndrome. What a goddamn fool she is!


Don't feed the trolls!
