In a burst of heavy-handed partisan rhetoric, former Republican New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has compared the Benghazi incident in which a US ambassador was killed to Nixon's Watergate scandal. In a Fox News interview, Giuliani said -- "It could be worse than Watergate because it involves very, very sensitive, classified information about which people could be killed and that may be worse than Watergate in terms of, you know, the taking of human life."
This comment then bespeaks of Republican desperation because the Republicans are very desperate right now. They got beat and they got beat bad. Also a lot of the Tea Party people got thrown out. The Republicans essentially no longer have a cohesive coalition -- and they know it. They might even end up on the scrap pile of history like the discarded Whig Party.
Even pundits are saying it's time for the Republicans to give up the ghost on the fiscal cliff issue and come to an agreement which they know they're going to have to do anyway because public opinion polls are now against them and they represent such an increasing minority that it's time they stopped being obstructionists.
