She got the media, but what about the military moms?

Based on the headlines, Secretary Clinton won most of the media vote.  They are ecstatic at the networks that nobody watches and at the newspapers facing circulation problems.  Some reporters haven't had this much joy since the night that Obama was elected.

In other words, the meme is that the lady came, and the GOP didn't lay a glove on her.  End of story, and let's move on to income inequality!

Not so fast.  Once again, the mainstream media may not be seeing or hearing what many of us saw or heard.  There goes that disconnect again! 

As the father of a young man who served in the U.S. Army (2010-2014), I found Secretary Clinton's response very troubling.  I'm referring to Rep. Jordan pulling out the emails that she sent to Chelsea or a head of state in the region.  I'm talking about the emails where she confirms that Benghazi was a terrorist attack and not some response to a video made in the U.S.

Andrew McCarthy reminds us of that day at Andrews Air Force base:

"We've seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We've seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with." 

Those words, depraved words, were spoken by then–secretary of state Hillary Clinton, with President Obama by her side, on September 14, 2012. This was at Joint Base Andrews, during the most sacred of rites: the return of the remains of Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, all slain in the line of duty in Benghazi.

Why lie to a mother or widow standing next to her loved one's casket?  Why not say that we don't know and need to do more research?  Of course, we know why she said it.  They had to cover for the Obama re-election message that al-Qaeda was on the run, Osama was dead, and the U.S. is out of Iraq.

Put yourself in the place of a military mother or wife this morning.  What could they be thinking?

Military moms and wives are a very tight-knit group of women who sacrifice so much for their country.  Sometimes their sons or husbands don't come back, but you don't see them complaining.

How is this issue going to play at military bases or just across the nation?  It is not going to play well, and it will continue to be an issue for now and into 2016.
