Let’s go Trey.

Find out why our people were left to die.

Arms to Syrian rebels [al qaeda], what?

But it cannot go unpunished that we left our people to die.

I believe Trey Gowdy is competent, honest and a patriot!

There may only be about one Suburban load out of those around out of the 535 reps and senators up there.

Issa is the one who calls "time" on Gowdy a lot, often when the going gets good.

He wants to remain Speaker of the House, no doubt. Tough luck. I’ve been saying for a long time that Gowdy would serve this country best as Speaker of the House.

Chaffitz is good too. Not as articulate but he knows his stuff and was part of the Group that Went to Libya and talked to Americans that were involved. He was also present when Cheryl Mills tried to strong arm witnesses before and during their discussions with the Congressmen.

Yeah, the blanket on the coverup is about to be pulled back.

I hope the first witnesses Gowdy calls are those that the Aministration are those that the Admin. has hid from public and the other Committees.

Gowdy is EXACTLY the kind of Pushback Johnathan Turley testified about, that needed to happen or we loose our Republic form of Government.

Future Headline: President Obama announces his Resignation after a year long fight with Congress and the Courts over his criminal activities. Obama during his announcement didn’t speak of the alleged criminal activities but rather Accusing Congressment Gowdy of Being a typical Southern Cracka upset over a black man in the White House continuing to harass him instead of spending time fixing the Economy.

I've noticed that Rep. Gowdy has often been quick to give credit to Reps Chaffetz, Jordon, and a few others.

Let’s hope he also appoints Gohmert to the committee. Can’t hurt to have a judge be a part of the process.

I just hope Gowdy has no undiscovered skeletons in his closet, because you can be sure the Leftist Money Men will dispatch a literal army of private eyes to dig up dirt on him.

YES! Four brave Americans were murdered by oboma and his communist/socialist/marxist/muzzie cohorts. Find them guilty, and hang em’ high...this is AMERICA, and no enemy of the people in OUR White House is going to get away with this. Let us be the GREATEST GENERATION for our times and take care of enemies ON OUR SOIL...it's either them or us.

Go get em’, Trey and God bless you and your family.

In a few months, Gowdy will be the most hated man in America since Ken Starr. You can bet the liberal MSM will see to that.

I'm hoping to see him seated on the U.S. Supreme Court while I'm still living. Speaker? Yes on one hand. But on the other hand, is Gowdy political enough, wishy-washy enough, able to lie enough to be Speaker of the House successfully?

You are right about Chaffitz. He should be on the committee. He has the knowledge, the desire and the passion to do right by 4 dead Americans.

Gowdy is perfect as head of the Committee. When he questions (more like cross examines) witnesses, I feel the stress. :) Wouldn’t you hate to be a defendant or a witness for a defendant in any of his cases? I swear I would need to be hospitalized after something like that.

Do you really believe the LSM is as effective in forcing public opinion as they were during Starr's time? I think people are and have been on to the media's games for quite a long while now.

Doesn't matter whether he does or doesn't. Remember Sarah Palin?

My memory seems to call up some comments from Gowdy earlier in his career where he was saying he didn’t plan to run for office after x number of years in Congrss — essentially applying term limits to himself.

If that memory is correct as to his predisposition, he can be pretty dang fearless if he does not care about future electoral asperations. He can take this to the nth degree and still find a good prosecutorial or litigation position for more money after his service.

I would like to see him run for President, but that is just me. He may have better aspirations in life than dive into that cesspool.
