January 25, 2012 'I'm The Chairman!' Waxman Gets Chewed Out During Keystone Hearing Fire it up

80 Share

“Are you calling the Koch brothers during the recess?”

Angered by Waxman’s political posturing, Whitfield took a shot at the Obama Administration and Solyndra.

“If you want to talk about that, let’s talk about the millions of dollars the Obama administration gave companies like Solyndra and people like George Kaiser and other campaign bundlers,” Whitfield fumed.

“Why are you interrupting members and then you take unlimited time for yourself?” Waxman responded.

“I’m the chairman! And I’m telling you right now we’re going to recess for ten minutes!” Whitfield boomed, before storming out of the hearing.

No, I'm calling Animal Control - some kind of half-man/half-pig 'thing' is running amok and disrupting this committeee meeting

Way to distort the tenor of Mr. Whitfield's response, FOX. A more honest rendering would be:

“I’m the chairman. And I’m telling you right now we’re going to recess for ten minutes.” Whitfield said, before standing up to leave the hearing.

I like the found fater s plan to have government be as unsuccessful in most that it does. I just hate that today, doing nothing costs us so much.

I didn’t appear to me that Waxman had an original thought in any of what he read. He was just reading what was given to him. It’s time for him to retire and find a chaise lounge next to Charlie Rangel.

Thank you.
Whifield didn’t “boom” anything.

There is a great scene in the film "Poolhall junkies" which has echoes of this.

Two money men are backing pool hustlers; the games go back and forth until one of the backers gets tired of it. The backer is Chazz Palminteri -- he whips out $80,000 and throws it on the table. He follows with a fiery speech about the other guys being cowards and unused to being in poolhalls. He says this big money is going to make them choke. It's a great speech. It would leave just about anyone shaking and humiliated. You do not want to mess with Chazz Palminteri.

Unless you are Christoper Walken. He stands up and just says, "How much money ya got, Joe?"

Palminteri is stunned: "What's the difference??"

"I'M A MILLIONAIRE!" Walken says. "I lose 80, I get another 80. To me it doesn't matter. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE."

Walken goes on with an unbelievable performance and leaves Palminteri unable to speak, now with even more money on the table -- including pocket money and rings. "I'm going to leave you with nothing!" Walken says.

You never want to leave when they start with that crap.

You HAVE to stay right there and beat them down. It is like obedience training for a dog----consistent, fast, instanteous and painful gets the job done

Could be. If there is anyone who looks like he's sucked a goat, it's the Wax-man.

It is cruel that this is not photo shopped. When waxman was younger he was just ugly, he has aged into hideousness. Frankenstein was better looking.

I don’t recall any specifics, but Waxman was as cordial as a rabid dog when he was Chairman. That jerk cannot be slapped down too hard.

I miss the old days, when Waxman would have been invited out to Bladensburg for a duel.

Back in those days it was a polite Capitol.

Outstanding! Somebody finally gets it! We are at war with these a-holes like nostrilocus waxman and they are not our friends. They never have been and as long as we are willing to be polite and “professional” they have been willing to play us like fiddles. Play us they have right into the ditch over the last 40 or 50 years.

Time for this shite to be over. Time to fight back and , call them out, stuff their faces in the dirt, grab them by the scruff of the neck, jerk their chins up and beat the living hell out of them!

Bravo Congressman Whitfield! Finally somebody in congress has gained a spine.
