Posted on 05/11/2013 5:07:05 PM PDT by NoLibZone
House Speaker John Boehner is facing mounting pressure to create a special or select committee to investigate the Benghazi terror attacks in which four Americans were killed.
The House resolution to form a special committee now has at least 139 co-sponsors who are putting Boehner in the difficult position of leading efforts to get the White House to release emails on Benghazi-gate but not agreeing to the demands of many rank-and-file Republicans.

What the H>>>> is he waiting for????
And WHy in God’s name didn’t the Reps have the Hildebeast testify under oath? Cowards!
Yep - Cowards! Pure and simple.
He is sure acting like it. He has been nothing but an impediment and can be counted on to fold as the most crucial moment in any real confrontation with the Obama Regime. The GOP s not going to get anywhere unless it rids itself of the reach across aisle GOPe. And if they don't, they will probably hand the House to Pelosi in 2014.
Any moment now the Free Republic Committee to Excuse Republicans will arrive and explain why this is a super secret plot by JonBon that will save America. and we just need to give him time.
Obama and the Rats must have some serious dirt on Bonehead. What else explains his refusal to appoint a special committee. Bonehead is gutless in everyway.
You don't understand. Their jobs are important, not the country.
No, and he won't. He can cause more damage to Conservatives and the "Republican" party by staying RINO rather than coming out of the closet as a 'Rat.
Let this one simmer a bit longer. There are reports of more would be whistle blowers, including some from the CIA. The survivors have not been allowed to testify. There is an investigation of ARB (Pickering and Mullen’s incomplete report) starting up.
The press is just starting to wake up. The WH is a bumbling, stumbling mess of nerves.
Issa’s committee is keeping the pressure on. Let them continue for a while longer.
When they get to the point where key people refuse to testify voluntarily, then unleash the hounds.
Memo from Boehner to Freepers: Can’t I just golf and drink wine, damnit?
Ya all better stop this or you’ll make Boner cry.
The pressure is mounting, and Boner is crying.
He is out getting a case each of Kleenex, Parliments and Depends...don’t bother him...
LMAO. Tears and pseudo brake-down sure to follow...
Why is this a difficult position for Boehner, and why should pressure have to be applied to him to get him to do it.
Stop wimping around Boehner and do your freaking job for a change./
It’s time to kick ass.
Somebody stop me before I offend a Lefists... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Ska-rew the “select committee” I want an Archibald Cox.
Well Leader Bohner is our very own “Old Yellow Stain”.
Add We The People pressure by calling him at 202-224-3121. By doing so, you help our military and the families of the dead!!
When he was first up for the job, I can’t believe how many, at least half, thought he’d be a good choice. He may not have pics of his grey cotton covered privates, but he’s still a Weiner. Boner. Whatever.
Unfortunately that plan is to merge the two parties under Democrat leadership. Truly Lord Vader ...er...Bhoner is a uniter, not a divider.
What is The Speaker waiting for, you ask?
What has Obama got on Boehner, is my question.
What did he have on Roberts?
If this had happened in the Bush administration, Pelosi would have convened the select committee months ago.
House Speaker John Boehner: My Daughters Big Fat Rasta Wedding!
In a Meet The Parents-like scenario, Conservative House Speaker John Boehners daughter was married to a pot-smoking Jamaica-born construction worker last night in an intimate garden ceremony
The bride wore a strapless white gown that revealed a thick armband tattoo around her right biceps and bikini-top tan-lines. The groom wore a grey suit that prominently displayed his waist-length dreadlocks.
Can't wait to see pictures of the happy couple. In the meantime, we'll just have to be content with a pic of the prospective groom from this FR thread:
He’s father of the bride this weekend. He’s getting the son-in-law he deserves.
John McCain is the RINO asking for a select committee, probably to eliminate the momentum and do a favor for some Democrat constituent who wants to bring in more illegals to pick lettuce or something.
So, Norm, which side are you on in this little battle?
Americas. How about you?
>>The WH is a bumbling, stumbling mess of nerves.<<
I hope Hil-liar-y is an absolute emotional wreck, her brain sizzling and crackling and frying, trying to think up ways to save her worthless, hideous hide.
It couldn’t happen to a more evil witch.
Take sides ~ Toensing and Hicks, or Juan McPain ~ quick ~
Nah, Boehner wouldn’t wear grey cotton— Boehner would borrow his future sil’s hat to wear. Yes sir! Yowsa!
Can you read?
Well, he has pressure from the other side as well, no doubt. Of course, he was not hired to work for them, but that’s a moot point.
Sniveling cowards, I’d say.
They’d better get it together, get off the golf course and study up. If they’re afraid of her it’s because she’s better at what she does than they are at what they do.
The guy smokes Parliments? I used to smoke Parliments about a million years ago. I didn’t know they were still made. Oh, you left out something... a case of Scotch.
LOL. Bonehead deserves this dude as a son in law.
Thread full of half cocked knee jerkers talking out their behinds. Waste of time trying to reason with, but I applaud your attempts.
I’m on the side of making Hillary testify under oath. The current set up let her off the hook. Time for another approach.
Your answer is not consistent with your challenge
LOL! He really really does. Every time I think about it or read stories or see photos of it, I can barely stop laughing.
It sure does make me wonder what kind of a father Bonehead was for his daughter to have married this guy. I bet Boehner got drunk as a skunk at the wedding yesterday.
Yes because no one has any reason to question the willingness of the GOP to do what is right for the country.
I don’t much care what the excuse committee Chairman for the GOP thinks about anything to be honest. After our last discussion you proved that you will go to the mat for them.
I favor waterboarding ~ it works where oaths mean nothing to a sociopathic liar.
You mean these same committee’s that can’t or were too afraid to put Hillary under oath when she perjured herself? Time for a different approach.
Too bad he has to be pressured to do the right thing.
Go to it. The math says it doesn't work. Better to decapitate the Republican party from the state level and set up an entirely new organization to run someone for President. That's essentially how the Republican party was founded.
Reread my last post. Then remember you are on FR not GOPFANCLUB.
Water boarding is good. But only a short term solution. You need something with a little more teeth like perjury to keep Hillary out of the WH in 2016.
