Gowdy Slams Rice Benghazi Interview: ‘I Get Tougher Questions in the Bojangles Drive-Thru’

Bridget Johnson

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) blasted Meet the Press host David Gregory for throwing softball questions at National Security Advisor Susan Rice on Benghazi, saying: “I get tougher questions in the Bojangles drive-thru than he asked her.”

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press for the first time since her 2012 post-Benghazi round on the Sunday shows, Rice was asked by Gregory if she had any regrets about that appearance and whether she felt that it cost her the secretary of State job.

Rice was also asked if we’re any closer to finding those responsible for the murder of four Americans that night, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. “The United States stays on the case. This president, our President Obama, has said that we do what will it takes to bring the perpetrators to justice,” she said. “And indeed, we will.”

“I would love the chance to ask follow-up questions of Susan Rice because David Gregory apparently did not avail himself of that opportunity,” Gowdy said on Fox. “There is no regret about lying to your fellow citizens, no regret — no regret about the fact that in 18 months, not a single solitary person has been brought to justice. No regret for misleading the families and loved ones of those four murdered Americans. I can certainly help her if she is struggling to come up with an area of regret. Who did she talk to before she went on the Sunday talk shows? Did she call Hillary Clinton? Did she call Gregory Hicks in Libya? Did she do any due diligence at all?”

Gowdy stressed that the truth “undercuts the narrative that the president has been engaged in during the campaign.”

“Remember, we were in the midst of a campaign. Al-Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead. Well, apparently al-Qaeda was not on the run. They were at the front door of our facility in Benghazi getting ready to kill our ambassador, burn it down. So she could either tell the truth or she can blame it on a video for which there was no evidence whatsoever, and she opted to protect her career and pair up the talking points that were provided her by the White House.”

Gowdy, who sits on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said to this day “a lot of the classified documents are classified to protect political careers, not to protect national interest.”

“There are four committees that have been looking into this for 18 months. To my knowledge, not a single one has had an opportunity to ask the follow-up questions that David Gregory failed to ask on Sunday. It may be time to put our efforts together with a select committee with subpoena power,” he said. “Because, as you know, I can’t subpoena anyone. I can’t subpoena the greeter at Walmart. I have no subpoena power. The committee chairman and the speaker do. And I’m about ready to Ms. Rice some questions under oath, not David Gregory questions about what’s your favorite color, but serious questions about why you had so little intellectual curiosity as to question the talking points that you were asked to parrot. Did you ask anybody to prove to you that this was a video or did you just go out and parrot it?”

Trey Gowdy Bump!

All the flunkies in the 0bama administration get the same kid glove handling as Susan Rice did and the flunkies I refer to are Cabinet Secretaries.

She has a shield - she is a black LIBERAL woman and she knows she can get away with everything.

I’m not sure how dumb she is but she is definitely playing the game: you can’t touch me because I’m black. I actually hear a black girl say that at the post office just before she flung a package marked “fragile” across the room.

RINOS ARE THE OBAMA TROJAN HORSE TROOPS PARTY

The “RINOs” are really just Trojan Horse troops sent in by Obama.
They do as they are told to avoid Left Stream Media jeers.
John “The Doormat” Boehner has his paranoid fears:
Obama and the Left Stream Media Journalists will drive him to tears.

And then there is “Capitulation” Cantor,
With a soft Virginia Drawl,
Who wears patches on his knees
From his frequent Cave-In crawls.

Don’t forget “No Resistance” Ryan,
Appeasement is his long suit.
No wonder “Romneycare” Romney
Was such a big Ryan fan.

Obama’s Trojan Horse is now filled with House RINOs,
All promising that in 2014 they will ALL be silent.
The Republican’s RINO Rove, and “Wacko Birds” McCain,
Act as the Loyal Rear Guard for the Obama Trojan Horse.

What have we here? So say the skeptical.
Forward, ever FORWARD rolls the Obama Trojan Horse,
Crushing the Constitution, all Checks and Balances, and all who complain,
While the RINOs in Obama’s Trojan Horse stay always silent. and do not complain.

Did Obama capture the House RINOs inside his Trojan Horse?
Or did the Loyal RINOs stampede on to get there first?
The “What” and the “Why” are just idle chatter,
The RINO Five Years of failure, is what the to voter matters.

With only two plus years left to Impeach Obama,
Can the Trojan Horse House RINOs be trusted,
What the Constitution requires elected Stewards to do?
Or will re-elected House RINOs just continue the destructive Obama trauma?

Fried chicken was southern white food - mostly among fairly wealthy white Southerners up until the 1940's. Sunday meal stuff...

Chickens were used for egg production and the chickens slaughtered were tough old birds past their prime. Birds of stewing quality. Fried chicken required younger birds - birds raised for eating. Fried Chicken wasn't ‘slave food’ or soul food in the classic sense. I've never gotten the connection.

Nov. 12, 2012 Obama says “acts of terror.” Now he says “the day after it happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.” Susan Rice said on Sept. 16, 2012 it was the VIDEO based on the best information that we had at the time. “The information I provided...was what we had at the moment.” Four days later??

Here's the video clip of Gowdy talking to Greta VanSustren, if any one was looking for it. I couldn't help but chuckle when Gowdy described David Gregory as asking Rice "What's your favorite color?" Bwahahaha!

Sadly, though, then comes the realization that by-and-large nobody cares and everyone is content to let these filthy slimeballs lie through their teeth to us day by day. Even Gowdy, for whom I have considerable respect, is only now "considering" asking for a select committee with subpoena power to be established! Uhg, it seems that the injustice will only continue to worsen until the our Republic ultimately falls.
