Watch What Happens When a Democratic Rep. Decides She Doesn’t Want to Answer Questions About
The Blaze ^ | 12/9/13 | Becket Adams

Posted on 12/09/2013 2:58:40 PM PST by Nachum

Rep. Ann Kuster (D-N.H.) at a town hall meeting refused to answers questions about last year’s deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

The New Hampshire representative appeared to try to dodge the question by saying Benghazi isn’t in the Middle East, and therefore not pertinent to the discussion at hand.

“I’m certainly not here to talk about it, we’re here to talk about the Middle East,” Kuster said in response to an attendee’s written question.

Libya is located in north Africa. Differing definitions place it either inside or outside the Middle East.

Regardless, the crowd clearly was not satisfied with Kuster’s answer.

Her comment was prompted by a written letter asking for her thoughts on a bill sponsored by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) calling for Congress to form a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks.

She’s technically right but only used it to weasel on the question.

Next time they should use the term “Muslim world”.

Yes I thought it strange that she was too stupid to answer for herself and had to gat an Aide to answer for her.

Does he vote in Congress for her too, or does she just vote the way he tells her to.

Libya is located in north Africa. Differing definitions place it either inside or outside the Middle East.

What a copout, this Ann Kuster, claiming that Libya is not in the Middle East! All nations whose populations are predominantly of Arab ethnicity are in the Middle East, no ifs, ands or buts. She also has the nerve to say that the House is not involved with Benghazi, it's only a Senate thing.

Remember when the loony lefties were chanting, "Bush lied, people died"? With Benghazi, the message here is "Americans die, Democrats lie!"

This Kuster has to be targeted for defeat next November! She's a real DUMMYcrat who can't even reply to basic questions at a Town Hall meeting because she's scared that she might get in trouble with the Obama White House if she discussed Benghazi, because she might have to admit that Islamic terrorists killed Americans.

AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHA.

I'm sorry it's just funny.

Well no, technically she is correct, among the North African nations some people only include Egypt in "The Middle East". Some include Libya also. Doesn't seem like like anyone counts Tunisia, Algeria or Morocco despite them being Arab countries. They are hardly very "east".

But really, what a pathetic cop out. Pathetic woman.

The article: "She eventually became silent and stood there as the crowd became more unsatisfied with her answers. An event staffer had to come to her rescue and redirect the meeting. “There are a lot of different ideas and a lot of different opinions here,” he said. “So, we’re going to stick to the format of answering questions [on the postcards] rather than get into a discussion that goes on.”

You may want to take Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria out of the Middle East, but I wouldn’t. They are much more similar to Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, etc. ethnically, culturally, historically, religiously, and politically than they are to any European country or to the sub-Saharan African countries.

OBAMA HILLARY LOVE FEST ON 60 MINUTES---Obombo had
just hustled Hillary onto 60 Minutes to gaze in adoration, after her arrogant
dismissal of the Benghazi massacre before Congress.

======================================================

MILITARY.COM reported that US Pentagon officials declined to give specifics on conversations between DOD's Chuck Hagel and Egyptian Gen al-Sisi....WRT the post-Morsi Egyptian crisis.

Although the officials would not discuss the specifics of the military-to-military talks, the U.S. would need Gen al-Sisi's approval to move through Egyptian air space if Washington decided to send Marines to aid in the evacuation of U.S. personnel.

READY TO ROLL About 550 Marines and their tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft are at bases in Spain and Italy on standby if they are needed. A Navy Amphibious Ready Group with 4,000 Marines and sailors aboard, led by the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, was also in the region following completion of the Eager Lion training exercises in Jordan.

=============================================

AIN'T KARMA A *ITCH, HILLARY?...... the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, WAS in the region. We were lied to----we were told it was not available to help endangered Americans in Benghazi.

FIVE SECOND BENGHAZI QUIZ

(Q.) Who holds the key to unlocking the Benghazi secrets Obama and Hillary will not divulge?

(A.) That would be Egyptian Gen Al-Sisi who drove blood-thirsty Muslims out of Egyptian politics and has vowed to rebuild the 63 churches torched by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Right now, sitting in an Egyptian jail is a man al-Sisi arrested for inciting terrorism. That man is Gehad al Hadad....once employed by the tax-exempt Clinton Foundation.

THE CLINTONS IN-HOUSE MUSLIM TERRORIST the Clintons tax-exempt foundation employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist.

Gehad el-Haddad
(The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")

Gehad also knows how the Muslim Brotherhood launders money to finance terrorism, using "tax-exempt foundations."

As far as I know, Egypt does not have any limitations on obtaining information from terrorists---like prohibiting waterboarding, etc.

Rest assured---we will know everything---all in good time.

It isn't a question of what I "want", I'm telling you, I checked several online dictionaries and encyclopedias, apparently no one aside from yourself considers Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria to be part of "the Middle East" just cause they are Arab, they are "North Africa". "Middle East" is primarily a geographic term after all. You can stick Libya in there but Tunisia is west of Sicily.

The Bush admin used the term "The Greater Middle East " to to include all of North Africa and the former Soviet states with high Muslim populations, the term did not really catch on.

I don't see this as anything to argue about.

Don’t forget that she is where she is because she received a majority of the votes cast in her district. That means that most of the voters in her district want her to be where she is. Proving that once again, we get the Government we deserve.

You have to get used to Obvama’s cpnvenient geography. You see its the old geography of the Egytian Caliphate which was distinctly different than the Caliphate of Damascus.

Obamas geograhy follows the old divisions of Islam. And now, so does Keister Kuster.

as most know, Kuster is facing a difficult re-election. FYI, Manchester in NOT in her district.

“The town hall took place on Nov. 25 in Manchester, N.H., and hosted by the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire.

Footage from the event only recently surfaced online. The National Republican Congressional Committee, which is responsible for the video’s circulation, said Kuster’s refusal to answer is inexcusable.”

Over the internet, using all caps is considered shouting, and yes, it can be annoying.

As for it being a "style of expression", I assure you it's not. Ask the poster why he posts that way. He has a reason.
