To Pelosi’s credit, at least she didn’t say “dude, that was two years ago”:

This of course means that everybody should keep talking about Benghazi.

The subject of Benghazi is “diversion” and “subterfuge” so the GOP doesn’t have to talk about what exactly? The Obamacare the majority of people hate and economy that continues to sputter? You can really sense a Dem circling of wagons on this, mostly to save Hillary’s 2016 hopes.

By the way, State Department emails immediately after Benghazi immediately attributed the attack to an Islamic terrorist group. Three days later Hillary was consoling families of those killed by assuring them that she’d get the people who… made that YouTube video. Four days later Susan Rice was still blaming the video. Nothing was going to ruin the Obama campaign’s “Al Qaeda is on the run” line heading into an election.

Passing thought: It’s amazing what Susan Attkisson can report now that she no longer works for the brother of Obama’s deputy national security adviser.

    Both Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton got in an enormous amount of trouble over matters that were, honestly speaking, quiet minor. However, where they fell truly afoul of the law, was not the original scandal, but in attempting to cover the sandals up. The scandal that the Obamanation Administration is attempting to cover up, is not a minor misdemeanor breaking and entry, or even a sexual affair with an intern, it’s criminal level negligence. Unlike with either the Nixon or Clinton scandals, where no one died, four people died and the Obamanation Administration has lied and covered up what took place.

    The real question now is this. In a nation where the President and the Attorney General are constantly accusing people of being racists, are we going to hold the Obamanation Administration to the same standards that we held Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton to, or are we going to hold Barack Obama to a completely different standard because he is Black, and if we do, would that not constitute the most egregious act of racism?

    "VIETOR: In the White House. Let me finish my initial statement. The notion that we could, you know, divine motives from a drone feed I think is wrong. And I also think this idea that the military had the capability to rescue those individuals but chose not to is I think extremely unfair to the military. And Admiral Mullen said basically the opposite."

    No… @-HOLE! No on the Right is now, nor have the EVER assessed anyone in uniform be held accountable for 'inaction', unwillingness or god forbid, cowardice at any point as this [preventable] incident unfolded. But nice straw distraction btw.

    Baier did an absolutely masterful job of delivering wholesale, deeply discounted rope to this F-Troop REJECT.

    Vietor also let the cat out of the bag that Dear Leader was not in the situation room the night of the attack. So the question begs, where exactly was the CiC during an attack on US Soil?

    And now for the numbers this administration REALLY cares about:

    "Of 482 California cities included in the report, 439 gained population. *Many rural areas, the report concluded, continued to experience population declines*."

    Yep, the choke hold on drilling and all that $4+ a gal. Cali gas is playing out exactly as they predicted. Praise be to Allah..! Let the Hunger Games [foreshadowing] begin!

    "It’s amazing what Susan Attkisson can report now that she no longer works for the brother of Obama’s deputy national security adviser."

    Speaking of which, CBS is still ignoring the story; yet even MSNBC is begrudgingly admitting that there is something to Benghazi:

    Well it's about damn time:

    Boehner to hold house vote on forming a select committee on Benghazi:

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is announcing today that he intends for the House to vote to create a new select committee to investigate the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans.

    Though I do see good news out of your state:
    http://dailycaller.com/2014/05/02/wave-year-daily

    If the GOP picks up that seat along with many of the others they are expected to pick up it will scare the libs to death.

    The more the Dem's try to avoid Benghazi, the more the public is wondering just what they are covering up. I hope the Dem's keep trying to "cover up" this scandal and all the others, it will just help to create a 2014 Super Tsunami election.

    Thank you so much for that welcome news. I've personally spoke w/ Dr. Wehby and she has the same steel resolve we all admire in MM. Stand up, quality individual that railed about O'Care right out of the gate.

    Merkley is TOAST. The "Candidate From Nowhere" ( and the Senate's "Most Liberal Senator" ) might as well start packing.

    I'm working HARD on several campaigns right now ( you should SEE my cell bill? ) but once we get those over the primary I'll be onboard for Monica.

    I… KNOW! Imagine Dimmie's shame when they come to realize just how much their "trusted news sources" have [willfully] and woefully kept them out of the loop.

    Making O'Dumbo's waning, remaining days in office ( are we DONE here, really? ) as miserable as possible.

    Quick follow up: As.., demanding as it's been volunteering for these various campaigns ( I alternate days calling ) it's so invigorating just to be involved and you meet so many nice people!

    Ahem, and you knew it was coming: After 23 years of loyal service to the same ( Medical Technology employer ) Mrs. Will was let go this AM. Well, she and about a dozen or so other project engineers.

    She went out w/ all the class she's conducted herself with all those years. Imploring the remaining members of her team to continue developing life saving technology for the doctors and patients that use them.

    Of course she did a heel kick on the way to the parking lot but that's not the POINT. We already have grand designs for this summer and we want her to tell her story to as many voters as possible! She's got the time…

    Choom, wank, snooze.

    Questions?

    It's like he was dragged, crying all the way, to this point. He NEEDS to go!!!

  14. Granny617 on May 2nd, 2014 8:51 pm

    But I do love who they choose to lead this – Trey Goudy! If anyone can get answers – it's him. He is a bulldog prosecutor and will stand up to all those who will call him a racist for going after the administration.

    And on another note – I watched the whole Brett Baier interview last night. I about spit out my favorite evening cocktail when he called Brett – "Dude". I was thinking to myself – this was a spokesman for the NSC! Really??? Getting interviewed on one the most watched evening newscasts and he calls Brett – "Dude"??? If the administration is filled with stoners like this – our country is in a helluva lot more trouble than we realized! And, it is now completely clear – how four US citizens were murdered in Benghazi – with idiots like this running the show.

  15. Truesoldier__ on May 2nd, 2014 11:25 pm

    I don't know which is more shocking, that Weepy finally decided to do something that should have been done nearly two years ago, or that he actually is having the committee headed by someone who can and will get all the answers on the Benghazi cover up.

  16. Marshall_Will on May 2nd, 2014 11:25 pm

    - this was a spokesman for the NSC! Really???

    My sentiments exactly. So as w/ His SoU infomercials, what's the Rule on spirits & frat boys pretending to be policy advisors..? Only imbibe whilst Brett is talking or..?

    All part of the reason I'm starting to assess that Turbo Tax Timmy was more and more of a pivotal player in ALL of this! TTT "set the standard" for doublespeak, disinformation and critical withholding of information.

    With the bar now set essentially in contact w/ terra firma, it became open season for everyone from Kal Penn to Al Armendariz and dozens of other bozos. Geithner carried the weight, prestige and credibility of the Federal Reserve. Then proceeded to turn it into a hopelessly politicized and corrupt agency… From there: piece of cake!
