Boehner Ducks: Should Congress Probe Why No Marines Protected Diplomatic Posts in Libya?
Cybercast News Service ^ | September 21, 2012 | Elizabeth Harrington

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would not say whether Congress should investigate why no Marines were stationed at the diplomatic posts in Libya, where a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed, and who made that decision, saying only that he suspects the ongoing investigation by the FBI “will take a look at that.”

On September 11, in what the Obama administration now says was a “terrorist attack,” the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and a nearby safe house were attacked and Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other embassy personnel were killed. There were no Marines stationed at the consulate or at the main U.S. embassy in Tripoli, despite the fact that Libya was in political transition after a revolt that overthrew dictator Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011. …

At a Capitol Hill press conference on Friday, CNSNews.com asked Boehner, “Speaker Boehner, do you think Congress should investigate why there were no Marines at our diplomatic posts in Libya and who made that decision?” Boehner said, “I suspect that part of the investigation underway will take a look at that. While we typically have Marine detachments at our embassies, that isn’t always the case when it comes to our consulates. And so I’m sure there will be a review of that and a discussion about whether that’s wise going forward.” …

Boehner is/was/and will always be an Über-RINO. Never a leader, and never concerned with right or wrong.

I think ‘boar hog’ is what you were going for - a ‘bore hog’ would be his personality type, you might confuse somebody.

If we have to make our Embassies into forts, there is no point in our being there.

He should tell the truth because I believe he Knows there was a Covert CIA operation going on that has now been blown.The 2 FORMER Navy Seals were working for a Different agency,they were not Security for Stevens. Stevens Embassy office was in Tripoli Not Benghazi,what was he doing there with No security? Now ambassador Stevens was the go between for the rebels who were trying to Oust Gahdafi,remember we did not Know who the rebels were? They were Alqueda,and Stevens Brokered the deal to give them Guns,so what if Stevens was also CIA and was in Benghazi to try and retrieve those weapons and the Arab security team Hired there By Hillary and the State Department sold out Stevens and the rest is History. If you were Obama would you want to talk about that?

Obama is the one to blame. He can’t point the finger anymore. He denied security because he is weak with foreign policy. He denied ammo because he didn’t want to offend the locals. He and no other is responsible for the deaths of our diplomats. Obama has blood on his hands and nobody else.

I think that there needs to be an investigation about whether this guy has anything between his legs. We already know that he’s a freak - an invertebrate that somehow still stands.

Seriously, why does he ALWAYS avoid any investigations of the Dims? Who’s paying hgim, or has the goods on him?

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t want Marines on the ground in a third world country protecting anything that it isn’t militarily possible to defend. That’s not being a defender, it’s just being bait.

Boehner is so deep in the pocket of the Dems that it is criminal.

Who needs a hearing? We know why. The Obama Administration wanted to present a "low profile" friendly face to the new Libya. Marines would be counterproductive to that end.

Sometimes foolish policy costs lives. This is a perfect example of that rule.

We need a house speaker in the mold of Newt Gingrich, to tackle the problems of the country with conservative solutions. We don't need someone who has reached out so far across the aisle, that he cannot find his way back. We don't need someone who cannot be outspoken about the problems facing the country and have the backbone to set into motion solutions to solve them. We need a patriot who is willing to implement conservative solutions, not looking for the compromise all the time. We also need a great communicator who can speak to the people and not be afraid of telling the truth.

Boehner has $18M in his re-election kitty but Akin has very little and the GOPPER’s refuse to help a potential R Senator. Is this a Party worth a spit? I’m done with these creeps including the flailing Mitt!

Obama and the DNC must have pictures of Boehner bent over while a poofter has at him. He's on their side in 90% of the issues.

Boehner ducks? More like Boehner sucks, big time. A more incompetent Republican Speaker of the House would be hard to find. As his second anniversary as Speaker approaches, and with a solid Republican majority in the House, this idiot has accomplished virtually nothing while allowing Obama to continue running roughshod over our country with his Executive Orders and massive spending.

A weak sister like Boehner is why so many people feel that our government no longer cares about right or wrong.

Boehner is too weak to stand up to the traitors of the Democrat Party.

That makes him as complicit as the democrats in the downfall of America.

How pathetic Boehner is. Not a real man or a real American. Just a sad sorry schlub.

Now I could have gone all night without having my BP jump about 10 points.

That USELESS, POS, RINO, WUSS, Girly-Guy is now going to force me to have a couple more adult beverages just to calm down.

Does anyone doubt if the situation was reversed the RATS would not already have scheduled hearing(S).... as is multiple ones?

Here the STOOPID Party is handed an issue sure to hurt Dear Reader and they do what?

Diddle as usual!

Bear in mind that Boehner is the guy who laughingly admitted that he had no idea what was in the GOP platform and he didn’t think anybody ever read it anyway. The only thing this RINO knows to do is get out of the way let the Dems do what they want.

"I think ‘boar hog’ is what you were going for..."

Actually, I think the correct term for Boehner is "EX-boar hog", he having had those characteristics for "boar-hog" status removed long ago. The term for that is "barrow hog".

The only benefit of the cultural revolution, is that on our way to hell, certain hangups will be lost and the Democrats will no longer be able to blackmail sissies like Boehner.
