Over three decades afterwards, the hardliners in both countries are acting in an especially obstinate fashion. Why?
Within days, conservatives have absorbed a scenario that is being repeated over and over, and believed. Mention Chris Christie, and there is no mention of traffic whatsoever. Instead, the endless mantra goes, "But what about Benghazi?"
