Jerk of the Week - House Democrats

I don't know why I'm continued to be surprised by the actions of liberals, especially in Washington, but there are times when I'm stunned by what they do. There are many reasons for the choices I've made for our Jerk of the Week honors, ranging all the way from dishonesty to attempting to subvert the character of America. The deciding factor for this week was a pure lack of decency and humanity. Therefore, our Jerk of the Week is House Democrats who walked out of the Benghazi hearings.

This week, the House Oversight and Government Reform committee was holding a hearing on Benghazi. We all know that the Obama administration left four Americans to die during the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, and since then, his progressive liberal allies in Congress and the media have done everything in their power to obstruct and bury the investigation. Conservative members of the House have been pushing for answers, but they've been stonewalled so far. Obama has gone so far as to label Benghazi as one of the "phony scandals" being used to attack him.

However, the disrespect that was shown this week borders on the obscene. During the second portion of the Benghazi hearing, family members of the slain men were to testify. Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Wood, father of Tyrone Woods, sat down to testify to an almost empty chamber. A horde of House Democrats got up, en masse, and walked out, refusing to listen to the slain men's families. What utter contempt these lawmakers showed to those poor family members. It is reprehensible and despicable and I hope their constituents are giving them an earful. You would think that decent common courtesy would be shown to the family members, but their attempts to get to the truth works against their beloved grand leader. Here are the names of the Democrats who walked out:

Carolyn Maloney Danny Davis Eleanor Holmes Norton Gerald E. Connolly Jim Cooper John Tierney Mark Pocan Matt Cartwright Michelle Lujan Grisham Peter Welch Stephen Lynch Steven Horsford Tammy Duckworth Tony Cardenas William Lacy Clay

One last note. I know the progressive liberal media is spinning this, showing that not all Republicans showed up for the hearing. To be honest, I do think that they should be held accountable for that. One Republican walked out before the second part of the hearing (I do not know who) and they should be criticized as well. The difference is that the Democrats chose AS A GROUP to get up and walk out, thus showing their contempt for the family members. Democrats have no interest in finding justice for the four dead Americans, while conservative Republicans have vowed to find out the truth and hold those responsible accountable. That's a big difference and why House Democrats are our Jerk of the Week.
