Yup! The media will finally get off their duffs to do some actual work - like digging in Gowdy’s garbage cans.

"Probably the best thing Boehner has ever done."

---------------------------------------------------->

Probably seeing his speakership fading away and knows he has to do something or he will lose it.

As well he should.

I commend Boehner
- for his decision to initiate a Special Investigative Committee, and
- his choice of Trey Gowdy as its head

Gowdy and the committee needs to hire professional investigators to ask the questions that air on C-SPAN so that the hearings are seen as apolitical. These hearings will prime targets for the progressive advocate media to select soundbites that help their cause, and hurt the opposition. As I recall, that’s how the Watergate hearings were organized.

The first thing Trey needs is to have the power to file direct charges instead of relying on Ø’s just-us department. Going throught the DoJ would be a waste of time. We all know how WithHolder would gum up the works. The second thing he needs is to be left alone with total power to act in any way he deems neccessary. Just turn him loose and see what happens.

Have you seen/heard Randall's narration of the Honey Badger?

Randall does a lot of narrations re: nature.

Check out Randall's versions. Video about the same but his narration is hysterical.

Gowdy the Honey Badger! We need T-Shirts!

Yesterday on all the Sunday TV News shows the democrat talking point was that “...there were 21 previous attacks on American Embassies/Consulates and how come you Right-wingers aren’t all jumping up and down about them? Because they happened under Bush, that’s why!”

The answers they don’t want to hear is:
-No US Ambassador died.
-Four Americans (including the above) died fighting and two were in radio contact begging for help—which never arrived.
-The Obama administration blamed a little-seen Internet video that insulted Islam and spontaneous riots thereof.
—Hillary Clinton told the dead ex-USAF NCO’s parents that “We’re going to get this bastard that did the video!” days after the incident when she KNEW it was not a spontaneous attack but one planned by a terrorist group.
-What were 30 CIA agents doing that NIGHT in Benghazi? No one has answered.
-Why didn’t we send ANY help? LET military officers explain without administration coercion against them.

0bama’s CIA was shipping Ghaddafi’s weapons from Benghazi to Al Qaeda in Syria, the same guys who were killing our boys in Iraq.

Trey played it right over the last week... didn’t know if he would be appointed, Boner’s decision. Now that Boner has appointed Trey... no time to let the guard down - Boner could be thinking there is a quid-pro-quo - appointing someone the lead this panel whom he does not want or like, and wanting to push forth shamnesty and perhaps other Republic-breaking krap. As the Benghazi panel gains steam, be on the alert in the news background for Boner crap!

It only took 18 months for Boehner to find his backbone !!

Instead of left handed complements we should be thanking him and praising him for his courage.

Positive reinforcement always works better.

Since he’s not running for re-election,

Are you sure of that? Had heard the same, but found a site - ballot something - said he was.

I wonder if we get “Special Counsel” like they had in Water Gate. I guess we don’t need one with Trey ( who is moving up my president list).
I also believe the Demorats will try to boycott this historic criminal investigation. That would be great!! The hearings would not be peppered with whining Demorats!!! Boner did this right for one reason. The conservative were on his butt!! The establishment bush types were defeated— you can bet on that.
My DVR is ready for every breath taking revelation. I can’t wait until those CIA weapons experts start talking about what they were there to do!!!
