Trey Gowdy calls Dan Pfeiffer a ‘demagogic self-serving political hack’
Washington Post ^ | 7/23/2013

Posted on 07/23/2013 3:37:33 PM PDT by markomalley

(snip)

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who chairs a House subcommittee on border security, called Pfeiffer a “demagogic self-serving political hack who can’t even be elected to a parent advisory committee, much less Congress.”

(snip)

Pfeiffer had tweeted a link to an editorial in La Opinion, a Southern California newspaper aimed at Latinos, that was critical of Cantor’s proposal. The piece “nails the cruel hypocrisy of the GOP immigration plan: allow some kids to stay but deport their parents,” Pfeiffer wrote.

Gowdy’s comments came at the end of an hours-long hearing and as he was thanking four witnesses for being constructive and professional. Here’s the full quote:

“When I see quotes like I did today from someone named Dan Pfeiffer, who apparently works for the president. I think it is the same Dan Pfeiffer that once said that the law is irrelevant. And he tweeted out today that our plan is to allow some kids to stay but to deport their parents. He summarized this entire debate with that tweet. So I want to compliment you and thank you for not being a demagogic, self-serving political hack who can’t even be elected to a parent advisory committee, much less Congress, which is what Mr. Pfeiffer is. I want to thank you for not being that and understanding that these are complex issues where reasonable minds can perhaps differ.”

Gowdy is smart, articulate, and fearless and one of the few in Congress who is driven by values rather than political expediency.

His border security committee is important, but think what we’d have if he rather than that weak-sister Issa were investigating Benghazi and the IRS scandals.

It is nice to hear someone get down and dirty with the dirt bag rats. I hope he keeps it up. He might restore some semblance of faith in Republicans, which currently hovers somewhere between 0 and minus 1.

Tough being dead wrong isn’t .

Gowdy is the worst kind of amnesty traitor .
He is trying to distract everyone from his amnesty plans with these over these over the top scream shows while he is working hard for his

“thought he was great until I heard his interview on Laura Ingraham about immigration ...aye yai yai”

Yep, Gowdy is another one who has diappointed us. I’d rather he stop the amnesty bills than the IRS scandals. Amnesty will make everything else irrelevant in a few years if he can’t multi-task. The Pew poll today said illegals will go 8-1 for Dhimms over Republicans.

If Gowdy is so smart, why can’t he see this?

Gowdy presides over House Judiciary Committee stacked with pro-dream-act speakers and witnesses. Only voice of sanity was Steve King.

Gowdy packed his committee full of LaRaza operatives and banned the anti amnesty folks from even speaking.

Now Gowdy trashed fellow Goper Rep King and was calling him names.

I listened to the 2nd part of the hearing. There were a few comments from GOP members about how it might be unfair to give them citizenship ahead of legal immigrants, but I didn’t hear anyone except King who expressed strong opposition to a “Kids’ Act.”

If we get though this without the GOP killing the Republic, it may be by the skin of our teeth.
