Posted on 04/10/2014 10:23:46 AM PDT by Nachum
Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer told Special Report with Bret Baier Wednesday night that the window had passed on prosecuting the Obama administration Benghazi, and that the GOPs disorganzed approach to congressional hearings had let Benghazi as an issue slip away.
Politically speaking the administration has won, Krauthammer said. They ran out the clock. If we had had a select committee from the beginning, really had coherent hearings unlike what weve had, which were disjointed hearings, that let all things sort of slip away we really would have been somewhere. We would have gotten to the bottom of this. But as a political fact, this thing is done.
Im as outraged as everybody about this, Krauthammer continued. I just think that as a political issue the country is now tired of it, and to rev it up with a special committee is not going to work. I wish it had happened, and I do think the Republicans in the hearings that they had, which were completely disorganized, let this thing slip away. Sometimes you blow it.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hitler won too.
And the defender of Benghazi will run for president because What Difference Does It Make.
If they can get away with Benghazi, Lerner certainly walks.
No fraud, it’s not done. You want it done and I have to wonder why.
No limitations on deaths. Sorry Charlie.
Maybe it’s not done for you, but it is for anyone with the earthly power to do anything about it.
If you believe Dr. Krauthammer to be a fraud, the you know him not.
GOP Benghazi Probe Leader Has Huge Conflict Of Interest
The current majority of Republicans are complacent with the actions of this administration. We may as well have a complete government with Democrats with a few eccentrics called another party.
I see him going more liberal lately. That’s enough for me. And nothing is “DONE” when murder is involved”. If he was as smart as people think, he’d know that.
I refuse to believe Benghazi is done.
Benghazi ping. Let me know if you want on or off this list.
Hussein is immune from scandals. The DNCmedia will not allow the sheeple to believe he has ever done anything wrong.
Propaganda works when you control the masses.
Agreed. I, for one, will no longer vote for one Democrat just to keep another Democrat out.
Wow...he sounds like Gore on the global warming debate and Obama on the healthcare debate. “It’s done, we won...no more debate...move on” I wonder if the families feel the same way Charles?
:: Im as outraged as everybody about this, Krauthammer continued ::
4 Americans are dead.
Outrage by a “media squish” is the end of the issue?
Hillary is READY!
He’s right. Obastard and Clinton have gotten away with murder. Again.
Exactly. And, obviously, this is at the feet of ODimwit. However . . . the utter ineptitude of Issa and others in investigating this is STUNNING.
Joe diGenova tells WMAL GOP Congressman Mike Rogers (MI-8) is trying to kill Benghazi Investigation
Speaking with Larry O’Connor and guest host Christine O’Donnell, Joe diGenova tells WMAL that GOP Congressman Mike Rogers (MI-8) is trying to kill the Benghazi Investigation.
It is so bad, that even John Boehner has taken Mike Rogers to task for his lack of action. ...
Professional politicians and professional political commentators are almost all directly the cause of the problem.
Krauthammer is no exception.
He is like a small insect to me.
He was speaking in political terms....I believe it could well go past 2016....or at least 2014 before anything significant happens.
When did high crimes morph into a political issue?
I said the same thing to my father last night. None of Obama's misdeed will be discovered until the man is long a memory.
* When did high crimes morph into a political issue? *
It happened almost at the exact time that patriots were considered to be “racist” because they don’t want illegal invaders stealing jobs from legal Americans during a period of high unemployment.
Charles wants to fit in with the beltway media and Harvard set so OF COURSE he says this.
Since when do the boys on the barricades take orders from ELITES...?
Charles can play his violin as we save the country.
I have had my share of disagreements with Dr. K but he is a very astute observer and analyst. He is rarely wrong in his assessments.
And nothing is DONE when murder is involved.
As much as I would like to see the administration prosecuted for such and believe that they are morally responsible for the murder of the Benghazi 4, they did not commit a legal crime. They are guilty of malfeasance and dereliction of duty resulting in the deaths of 4 Americans, but even the best prosecuter would be hard pressed to get a conviction of murder. Diplomatic misconduct would be the only thing that they could be tried on, but according to the Constitution, they are immune (US Const Art 1 Sec 6) unless in the case of felony, which would be a stretch.
With regard to any diplomatic misconduct, Dr. K is correct, the clock has run out. The only thing left would be to go for impeachment AFTER Republicans take the Senate and retain the House.
Watching the communists (D) play the game of politics in DC versus the socialists (R) is like watching the New York Yankees versus the local elementary school baseball teams.
I think Krauthammer is an optimist in that he has some vestiges of expectation for the political process. Put a fork in it, it is done. I do not want that o be the case, but is it is the case nevertheless. When 60% of the nation is witless leeches, there is not hope of a resolution “working within the system.”

Believe what you want.
Republicans "blow it" as a matter a principle. As the right half of the Uniparty, they can't help themselves.
Well thank you for being so benevolent as to allow me that small thing.
The Stupid Party has lost again.
Always content with second place out of two competitors.
The Republicans should have continually had the families of those murdered go up and demand investigations.
Republicans have not been coherent on the problem.
Too busy attacking each other.
Never done Professor. We shall keep calling for justice, or I will!!!
-——Too busy attacking each other.——
Or there are other bigger fish to fry. The skillet is heating the grease to fry the Lerner criminal. Attacking each other is a side show to the main events Issa is holding.
This is a very simple concept
The M B killed pur on station diomats, in country and we not only allowed it, and allowed it to go unanswered, we apologized for it.
Everyone in the world paying attention to it knows that, including Russia, Europe, china, and the Arab world
So. No it is not pver,
Sarah ... I love Her Madly ... Apologies Todd.
Yes ... NEVER OVER!
Sorry, Krauthammer, you are willing to sell out just like the politicians....I am not.
Well, he’s right. They blew it.
That’s why we have the Tea Party, Chuck.
We shall fight them on the seas. We shall fight them in the skies. We shall fight them on the land. Yes, in God’s Name, we shall Win! Go suck an egg Krauthammer!
Lerner is bigger than Benghazi? Please.
My marching boots are shined, Nachum.
Who knows, maybe a tailor made lie was given to Krauthammer - one based upon is concept of honor - that would shut him up. It must have been something a humdinger - Krauthammer's a good man with massive insight into human flaws... it would take a lot to throw him off the trail.
