Posted on 05/07/2014 7:50:30 AM PDT by Kaslin
Late yesterday House Speaker John Boehner announced the new Benghazi select committee will include seven Republicans and five Democrats. Because Republicans are the majority party in the House, they have also been appointed the majority on the committee.
Before the partisan count was announced, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanded the committee be split evenly between Republicans and Democrats, despite giving very little attention to Republicans during her time as Speaker in the majority. Now, even after being denied the same number of seats as Republicans on the panel because Democrats are in the minority, Pelosi is again asking for more Democrat power on the committee.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 House Democrat, sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner late Tuesday urging him to reconsider plans to put seven Republicans and five Democrats on the panel. The House is expected to vote Thursday on the resolution establishing the committee, over Democratic objections.
"Another partisan review that serves only to politicize these attacks is disrespectful and unworthy of the American people," Pelosi and Hoyer wrote.
Lets not forget that Democrats (acting like adults as usual) have already threatened not to participate in the Benghazi investigation at all. If they do decide to participate, you can expect to see Democrats enter hearings with a well thought out plan not to ask questions of witnesses, but to attack the credibility of Rep. Trey Gowdy leading the investigation.
As we move forward, expect Democrats to protest nearly every part of this process in an effort to draw out the investigation to a point where bipartisan bickering turns everyone, including the public wanting more answers about Benghazi, off.
Cenk Uygur Panics Over Benghazi: ‘F You, Move The F On’
A desperate attempt to hide the realities of Benghazi.
Innocent people do not worry about disclosure and facts.
Speaks for itself.
Go to the back of the bus, we won.
....and if they don’t get their way they will hold their breath until they turn purple and stomp their feet!.........................Must be something they don’t want US to find out, huh?..............
“As we move forward, expect Democrats to protest nearly every part of this process in an effort to draw out the investigation to a point where bipartisan bickering turns everyone, including the public wanting more answers about Benghazi, off.”
At which point Trey Gowdy should dismiss the Rats from the hearing and tell them not to come back.
Ain't that the truth...
The difference between Benghazi and Watergate is that with Watergate there were at least a few ‘honest’ Republicans. There are NO ‘Honest Democrats.
Wrong. Their 'delaying tactics' will backfire and just prove to the American people that there really is something there..................
If she gets a 50-50 split, the Dems can block any conclusions of the panel, and they can trumpet, “Another bipartisan investigation that didn’t reveal any wrongdoing.” Painfully obvious.
Have you noticed only the murder, not the rape, of the story is mentioned?
My suggestion was same percentage make up of Iran Contra Special committee...because Dems controlled the house then and this is would be an excellent retort to queen nancy and her ilk.
Bill Clinton taught them that “stonewall, deny, and mercilessly attack your accusers” was a successful tactic.
Of course he was riding high in the polls with a booming economy at the time.
Will that work as well with a POTUS in Obama’s circumstances? I suppose we are going to find out.
Somebody... tell me,.... do you have to TRAIN to be this stupid? Or are you just born communist, to be seen throwing around Putin tactics, when you’re in the minority?
Even Putin waited until he was at least in charge.
The bitch who demanded the Obamacommiecare bill be passed to “see what’s in it” then promptly made herself exempt.
I can’t wait to hear which of the numerous America hating douchebags in Washington crawl out to defend Bohammed.
What if Boehner caves & gives Pelosi what she wants? Won’t be the first time.
“If it’s stupid & it works, it ain’t stupid”
Of course. And also, we have that California REPUBLICAN, who rags on General Lovitz with regularity and who may appear on the Select Committee, carrying Marxist water.
Hey, it works for Putin too. Putin and Pelosi! College-Try all over the place.
Which was an Alinsky tactic taught to Bill by his wife who was an ardent student of Alinsky,who wrote her college thesis on Alinsky and was even offered a job by Alinsky. Unexpected? Nah!
Time for the GOP to load up the Democrat seats on the panel with Democrats congressmen from the most conservative districts they can find.
The GOP is so poor at playing the game.
When do democrats not cheat?
Payback’s a beach.
So then, to avoid that, they're saying they WILL sit it out?
I haven’t enjoyed watching heads explode more since I last watched “Scanners”.
“Sorry for the lipstick on your Botox.”
“Time for the GOP to load up the Democrat seats on the panel with Democrats congressmen from the most conservative districts they can find.”
RINO senators want in.
Senate GOP: We want in on probe (Benghazi)
Not surprising. I like that they put democrats scared of losing in 2014 on this panel. That may keep them (a bit) more honest.
The democrat party is a criminal organization cleverly disguised as a political party.
My problem is the American people for the most part are so blinded with toys that they are vaccinated against seeing the truth. The communists machine for years created a dream world they live in and by name we call them Democrats. We cannot afford the years it will take, even if patriots are in control, to reverse the damage this communists empire have thrown us in.
Don't believe me LOOK AROUND YOU!
“You have to pass it to see what is in it”.
Paybacks are a bitch, Pelosi.
Pelosi is again asking for more Democrat power on the committee.
Democrat power is how the mess got started spooky old Nancy has no cells left.
There must be something there with this phony scandal. Otherwise the co-conspirators wouldn’t be acting in unison.
“The democrat party is a criminal organization cleverly disguised as a political party.”
I always said that Marxism was an invention by criminals to keep the population in check while they loot the treasury.
Getting flak...over target.
Your Democrat Party: The Party of “Oh, No”.
..... Hey .... if they have nothing to hide ... then they have nothing to worry about do they.
.... All we want is a few answers from a "Genuine" Select Committee instead of a hand picked Committee comprised of party faithful obedient drones who have sworn allegiance to our Dear Leader at any cost.
No, the Iran-Contra Joint Committee was 6 D - 5 R
I like the 7 R - 5 D better...:^)
and don’t forget that no one died in Watergate, which is a huge difference
They sure are afraid that the truth comes out
That’s what I want to know too
