Pressure mounts on Boehner to appoint select committee on Benghazi
foxnews.com/ ^ | May 11 2013 | foxnews.com/

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.

"Has Bohner officially switched to the DNC yet?"

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.

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.

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.

I wondered about that at the time. Some FReepers posted that she appeared before the committee voluntarily and was not subpoenaed.

(Besides, what difference at this time does it matter?) /snark)

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.

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.

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.

Boehner's been busy, what with his daughter's wedding yesterday and all. I wonder if he cried at the wedding.

House Speaker John Boehner: My Daughter’s Big Fat Rasta Wedding!

In a Meet The Parents-like scenario, Conservative House Speaker John Boehner‘s 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.

more...

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:

Victoria Toensing in an interview the other night said going for a select committee will waste valuable time and eliminate the momentum we already have with Issa's committee ~ she said when the Democrats ran that committee they had all the tools they needed.

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?

Seriously?

It couldn’t happen to a more evil witch.

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.

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.

Greg Hicks attorney, Victoria Toensing, said she did not want a select committee because it would take too long; special appointed people will have to be found....disagreements on who should and shouldn't do it. She said just give the people doing the hearing subpoena power.

The Hildabeast was still Secretary of State ~ I've heard arguments both ways regarding holding a cabinet level officer to truth telling by putting them under oath.

I favor waterboarding ~ it works where oaths mean nothing to a sociopathic liar.

You're the guy who wants to try a new third party.

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.

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.
