David Plouffe: “Loud Delusional Minority” Driving GOP on Benghazi (Video)

On This Week‘s Powerhouse Roundtable on ABC, former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said a “loud delusional minority” of Republicans were “politicizing” Benghazi.

Plouffe: What Benghazi was was a tragedy. We have to figure out how to prevent it from happening again. And try and hold those accountable as we did with bin Laden — took a while, but after 11 years, we did. The USS Cole — 17 sailors died. The weeks before the 2000 election, what did then Govenor Bush say — it’s time for the nation to speak as one voice. Now, you couldn’t handle that in this party. This has been politicized like we’ve never seen before.

And I think what’s happening — Richard Nixon talked about a silent majority back in 1968 — there’s a very loud, delusional minority that’s driving our politics, that’s in control of the Republican Party. There is no conspiracy here at all.

Of course, David Plouffe was included on the smoking gun email that was released last week by Judicial Watch.

The emails show that a coordinated effort was made in the days following the Benghazi terror attacks to portray the incident as “rooted in [an] Internet video, and not [in] a broader failure or policy.” The “goal,” according to these emails, was “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”

So who politicized Benghazi again, David?
