Three of the dumbest House Democrats EVER will be on display at the Holder hearing today......
one man's opinion...

Posted on 05/15/2013 7:08:05 AM PDT by ken5050

Attorney General Eric Holder will appear before the House Judiciary Committee at 1 PM EST today. This appearance had been scheduled some time ago, but is drawing huge attention because of the rapidly unfolding scandals about the IRS and the DoJ seizure of the AP telephone records. These are crucial, very important hearings, but nevertheless, we can expect to be treated to a side-show spectacle of three of the stupidest Democrat House members competing to see who can say the absolutely dumbest things. Of course, I am speaking of John Conyers, Sheila Jackson Lee, and Hank Johnson....

FYI...here's a link to the list, and pics, of the committee members. The GOP has some very able, and forceful, interrogators....King, Gohmert, Jordan, Chafetz, Gowdy, Labrador..and I expect them to put Holder on the spot.

But I suspect that we will be astonished by what comes out of the mouths of the Democrats' "three stooges," Conyers, Jackson Lee, and Johnson.

I'm not even sure if Conyers is "compos mentis" these days...he is surely a walking advertisement for term limits. He is the ranking member, and will thus get to talk about as long as he wants...that is, assuming that he doesn't fall asleep and start drooling.

Among his career lowlights are his comments about the Obamacare Bill, which was rammed through the House....

"...What good is reading the bill if it's a thousand pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?.."

Well, John, America is now finding out exactly what good it would have been..to read the bill before passing it. And let's not forget that the little woman, Monica, is now doing 3 years in prison for bribery.

Sheila Jackson Lee is from another planet. Period. Obama was obviously referring to her at his press conference when he said, "there's no there, there.." There really isn't.

I was going to add a "Best of Sheila Jackson Lee" compendium to this post..but there are far, far, too many to choose from. Feel free to add your own favorite...

Hank Johnson, as you may recall, once announced that as a result of additional US military being deployed to Guam, he "feared the whole island would tip over and capsize..."

And just recently, he lamented on the House floor, that sequestration would result in a depletion of the US helium supply, and little children couldn't enjoy the joy of balloons..

It should be something to behold...

Two other important points to watch for.

Will the GOP demand that Holder testify under oath? This is normally not done when a Cabinet Secretary appears before Congress..but it is not without precedent. It could start the fireworks early.

The majority of the House GOP conference wants a Special Select Committee to handle all these scandals. To date, Boehner and the 5 committee chairs that have oversight have refused. If Holder stonewalls the committee today, look for the Select committee to happen immediately.

Reaching a decision on the dumbest democrat would indeed be a task best assigned to a supercomputer.

I guess, since Maxine Waters is a senator,
she won’t be “on the list”.

I had that pulled on me once, when I was challenged to show that democrat politicians are not intellectually superior.

I said, “Maxine Waters, Sheila J Lee, and Cynthia McKinney”.

Of course, the leftist whom I was speaking to noticed, before I did, that these names all belonged to black women, and called me a racist for mentioning them.

DELICIOUS MICHAEL GOODWIN----NY Post Op-ed "As a metaphor for big govt, it is hard to top the Justice Dept’s seizing of journalists’ phone records from The AP......Unless, of course, you think the best example is the IRS turning the screws on groups it viewed as conservative and, therefore, unworthy of fair treatment. ........Or maybe the winner is the sneaky spreading of ObamaCare’s tentacles, with insurance companies now predicting the law will drive up the cost of individual premiums by as much as 400 percent.

Mmmmmm.....those are good. But let's not forget Benghazi. The list of govt lies and liars grows daily.

The tin pot dictator in the WH went ballistic b/c he had bribed all the terroists to "play nice"....the jihadists disrupted "The Plan" to have the world kneel in obeisance to the "global savior."

Some Democrats seem to be stupid only because they are so brilliant, so intelligent, so intellectual, that their minds are working overtime and are attempting to solve all of mankind’s problems all at once, without rest, without sleep, just like brilliant scientists who solve problems in physics and chemistry. See? Ya Know?

I keep asking myself how she continually is elected to leadership.

But then over at the Senate, Patty Murray is in their leadership so there must be something the D's know and I don't (stupid is as stupid does?)

King, Gohmert, Jordan, Chafetz, Gowdy, Labrador.

Conyers, Jackson Lee, Johnson and Holder.

You might as well send the ‘Pubs out there with white hoods and whips. I give it an over / under of 12 minutes into the session before the term ‘slavery’ is used. This might need race bait bingo cards.

It should be excrutiatingly painful. I can’t decide if it’s “must-see TV” or “avoid-at-all-cost TV.”

I was watching “The Five” for a little while Monday afternoon..heard Bob Beckel. He’s a slimeball, but is also realistic, and not afraid to call it. He said that the Dems can absolutely forget about any chance of winning the House..and watching his body language, and his tone, while talking about the three scandals..you can tell that he knows that it’s all about to come unglued for Obama

Pelosi isn't dumb, it's just that nothing she says is meant for your consumption. It is all done for her base and she knows them better than anyone. When Scott Brown got elected to the Senate ObamaCare was dead. Without the votes to pass the bill that came out of the House/Senate conference committee it was going no where. But San Fran Nan twisted arms, pulled strings and blackmailed as necessary to get the completely corrupt House Democrats to pass the Senate version which contained NO PORK FOR THEM. She became Speaker because she is the best behind the scenes vote-getter in Washington. She's everything Boehner is not.

The 3rd guy I am unfamiliar with...

Hank Johnson is from GA :-(, and he's probably not as bright as the first two. He made the famous Guam tipping over comment in reference to the navy establishing a base there. The good news is that he probably accurately represnts the intellect and the attitudes of the majority of the voters in that district - a specially gerrymandered district to ensure that it will always have a black democrat as the kongressional representative there. It was Cynthia McKinney's district prior to her getting the boot as being too wacky for even the drug hazed welfare recipients who vote there

Hey! I know people who live in that district and I'm offended ...not everyone who votes there ... you may have a point.

I'm sure you recall that all the republicans in that district signed up to vote in the democrat primary for the sole purpose of unseating Cynthia. I don't remember that lady's name but she stayed one term, ran for the Senate, lost badly and disappeared. Some judge, I believe? Then they elected Hank, who is more their speed.

CONGRESSwoman Sheila Jackson Lee is a rather interesting person.

I have met her and for 20 seconds it seemed that I had a new BFF.

She is married to a professor at University of Houston.

Her intellect appears to be competitive with a box of rocks.

A really odd person.

The radio show host Michael Berry (740 AM)is her nemesis and nearly every day taunts her for her stupidity.
