Boehner Defends Decision Denying Select Committee on Benghazi
Newsmax ^ | 4/22/13 | Sandy Fitzgerald

Posted on 04/22/2013 2:50:58 PM PDT by Nachum

House Speaker John Boehner Monday defended the way he has handled the investigation into last year's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, insisting a select committee is not needed to probe the incident.

The Ohio Republican told the media that he has resisted lawmakers’ calls for a select committee because he doesn't think one is necessary.

“The five committees that have jurisdiction over this matter are working closely together,” said Boehner. “They're getting the job done.”

As of Monday, The Hill reports, 117 of Boehner's fellow lawmakers have signed onto a resolution from Republican Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia, seeking a select committee. However, Boehner, defending his handling into the Benghazi incident, said it would be a waste of time and money, a claim backed by leaders of the Oversight, Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, Intelligence, and Judiciary committees.

Who has the authority to appoint a select committee on Boner?

The Dems must really have the goods on Boehner. He’s gone way beyond the normal Republican capitulation and caving. He’s actually carrying water for them now.

Well, see, if it was a Republican White House, the Democrats would certainly let the Benghazi misunderstanding slide until it faded down the memory hole, wouldn’t they?

This pathetic assclown Boehner has GOT to go.

So, approximately 25% of the US Representatives have signed their names to a resolution seeking a select committee, and the drunkard, Boehner, tells them to eff off because he knows best.

Sadly, they are just as weak as Boner is. Action often requires a little more effort than just signing one’s name.

Boehner has come to the point where he hates the Tea Party more than anything else. He won’t throw them/us so much as a dried up old worthless bone. This is what his actions say, anyway. If he ever spearheads an effort that pleases Tea Partiers & enrages or dispirits Dems, let me know.

Every day...another outrage.

Thanks to Boehner and the rest of the rinos, this administration is completely lawless and out of control now. They are literally laughing in everyone’s face, refusing to answer any questions or be held accountable to the other two branches of government. It is a sorry state of affairs.

The media carries the water of the administration at all times and even Fox News has lost their edge and carries the water of the Saudi ‘s who have part ownership in their network.

Depressing.

You are not getting old, missy!

The other night I was speaking with one of my sisters on the phone, and I pronounced Boehner's name "Boner". She didn't know to whom I was referring, as she pronounces it "Bayner", which is probably correct. We did have a laugh over it. :)

How I despise that man.

Oh, okay then.

Every story in the news sounds like it's straight out of The Onion. You can't make this crap up.

Is this quisling owned by the Saud's too? Who's not owned by them and will any true patriots take a stand against this?

And, in truth, those 700 signatures should carry a lot more weight than 117 congressmen if we weren’t living in a an alternate universe.
