Spitting on Their Graves: Democrats Leave Benghazi Hearing Before Testimony From Families of Victims

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

Yeah I want to know. Words are inadequate to describe and define these people. Ditto for the (majority of) Democrat voters that will excuse this affront to human dignity.

And some people can't understand why I despise liberals so much. I am getting to the point in my life where I don't even want to associate with extended family members that believe in the perversity that is liberalism.

If my family was as deeply involved as these I would have leaned over to the wife and told her that I was about to get thrown in jail so dont get scared, and started shouting and cussing at them before they got to the door.

They were never shown leaving the room. I was watching the hearing online on the committee website.

I figured when I saw no one on the dem side asking questions except for Jackie Speier that they had all left. I think the reason for that was they didn’t want to hear anything MORE that was damning about Hillary. They probably knew that Mrs. Smith would not be taking it easy on Hillary as her thoughts are well known about that woman and rightly so. Bless those parents..

I hope those congressmen/woman keep their word and keep at that administration until there are no more questions to be asked about Benghazi.

I think Pickering and Mullen were shameful. I don’t care how long they’ve been “public servants.” They’re not even smart enough to know that being a “public servant” isn’t a badge of honor in our book!

“”Only 2 out of 18 Democrats remained to listen to the family’s story””

I sat at my computer and watched the whole thing online and I do not believe there were 18 democrats in the room. At the most, I remember 5-6 asking questions....

Cummings and Speier remained. Who were the 16 who left?

The left why? Because they are fascists.They will not be accountable because their ideology makes THEM superior.

Astute observation. This was obviously a coordinated action. That means these people got marching orders from higher up.

It is very clear that the Dems will march off a cliff in order to protect their leaders (rulers?).

Understand who these people are and what we are dealing with here. Realize then what it means to oppose them. They *will* cheer to see you loaded on to a cattle car. Make no mistake about that. And that liberal SIL, BIL or that Obama loving cousin you have to put up with at family events? They will smugly say that you were obviously asking for it.

HARD choices are coming.

I know what you mean about the SIL, etc. Every night on the Jon Stewart Show, they get a new Ten Minute Hate. Snide, snark, the f-ing words. They're being trained to hate us.

So we could play this latest outrage to our advantage, except that Republicans are too timid to use it.

That should just about have iced it for Boehner to form a select committee to investigate the rats treason.

This is PERFECT to go after the Democrat brand. Is there any organization to produce a commercial:

Have DEMOCRATS NO Shame?

The Parents of American heroes killed defending fellow Americans deserve more than to have DEMOCRAT politicians abandon a hearing designed to let the grieved parents express their feelings on the loss of dear loved ones.

Why are these DEMOCRATS so cold and heartless? Why are these DEMOCRATS behaving so selfishly? What an embarrassment these DEMOCRATS are to our nation.

Disgusting. I am surprised that Tammy Duckworth joined in with her military background.

btw, has anyone read the book "Under Fire" about Benghazi?

I’ve dropped several old friends. The cognitive dissonance of attempting to establish bonhomie while thinking ‘you voted for that fraud?’ ‘you support that liar?’ became too much of a mindf**k.

At age 65, I no longer even pretend to like or tolerate liberals. I just disassociate myself from them.

I have completely severed ties with several liberal friends from high school in the mid-60’s, because they never grew up from being drug-addled hippie types. How one can be a seasoned, senior adult and still believe that liberal crap is beyond me.

And I won’t even address or be in the same room with a couple of my wife’s relatives because they are liberals that spout off their praise of Obama all the time. I finally said enough is enough. It is not worth my well being and peace of mind to put up with their drivel anymore.

My personal life is so much better without having to deal with these liberals. Now if we could only get rid of them in our institutions and local, state and federal governments where they are creating havoc for everybody else, the world would be a much better place too.

Something strange here. I am really surprised to see double amputee Iraq war vet Tammy Duckworth walked out with the libs.
