Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said the Republicans should stop being the party of stupid. So far, they have not heeded his advice.

Instead of trying to find out who changed the talking points regarding Benghazi, they should be trying to find out why more security wasn’t provided when it was requested before the attack. Who made that decision? Why wasn’t the military sent to assist during the attack, and who made that decision?

The families of the dead don’t care about talking points, but they probably would appreciate understanding how decisions made and not made impacted their loved ones’ chances of survival. Politics trumps common sense and decency once again.
