Senate Republicansí shameful silence about Victoria Nulandís role in Benghazi cover-up
The Daily Caller ^ | 09/18/2013 | Michael Ingmire

Last Thursday, the United States Senate confirmed President Obama’s choice Victoria Nuland as chief envoy to Europe. This was done by a voice vote with no debate, one day after the one year anniversary of last year’s deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Victoria Nuland served as the State Department spokeswoman during Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s tenure, which included the Benghazi attack in which Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were all killed.

...

Ms. Nuland had a direct hand in the changing of these talking points and has yet to effectively answer who gave her the direct order to do so.

Why is it the Republican party’s job to save the Democrat party? Her nomination for this job is something you would expect from 10 year olds. The Democrats just keep digging their hole deeper.

Several Republican senators had planned to ask direct questions during the confirmation process about Nuland’s involvement in the cover-up in the aftermath of Benghazi. They remained silent and Ms. Nuland sailed thru the confirmation process with no debate.

The accumulation of these sorts of events over my lifetime, has pushed me very close to saying to heck with voting in national elections. Why participate in, and condone the charade that we have a constitutional republic?

Why is this surprising , they gave the Secretary of State job to a known Traitor, Liar, and War criminal.

Republicans should be ashamed of a lot of things.
Graham and Mccain are two of them.

I had been given to understand that Nuland, herself, had an “excellent past record” as well as some GOP “friends that support her advancement!”

She is a leftist freak. Repubs are co-conspirators.

I agree however, it would have been more appropriate for the Republicans in Chamber to walk out during the confirmation process of Nuland - something the Democrats did during family testimony at the Benghazi hearings, yesterday.

Actions speak louder in words and in the case of Nuland's confirmation, the action would have been appropriate.
