What's Fair For the Goose... Bitches

There is quite the Republican kerfuffle now over Trump's latest comments.  He said that 9/11 wouldn't have happened on his watch.  It may not have been Bush the Younger's fault, but...  it did happen under that President (link).
.
The Republican establishment in general and Jeb! in particular are up in arms about this.  To which I say, What's good for the goose is good for the gander, bitches.
.
You see, the Republicans have been "investigating" Benghazi now for 17 months and cost $4,500,000.00 to date.  This is longer than Congress investigated 9/11 (link).
.
And Bush The Younger did get a warning about a month earlier (Aug 6, 2001) that Bin Laden was determined to attack in America and use planes (link).
.
So, if you Republicans want to attack Secretary of State (not President) Clinton for an attack, in a Libyan city (not the capital) where the budget constraints (set by Republicans) were of priority and 4 people died... - then it is totally fair to call out the President when an attack killed over 3,000 Americans and the President was warned directly 34 days prior.
.
Thems the breaks.  And it is a Republican doing the attacking here, because the Republicans have set the precedent that any attacks are fair game.  I suppose "Live by the sword, die by the sword" also works in this case.
.
It is also poetic justice since two Republican members and one Congressional Staff member from the committee have all said this is just a hatchet job on Hillary Clinton.
