Staying on top of things, right?

Politically Correct

While hurricane Sandy has taken the spotlight over the past couple of days, Benghazi and the economy have not been completely submerged by the headlining storm. I am sure the left hoped that Sandy would drown the hype that has surrounded Benghazi and the economy to allow Obama to propel past these issues, but unfortunately hurricane Sandy was not effective in dissolving these issues.
