John Boehner: Benghazi Select Committee 'Not Going To Be A Circus'
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 5-7-14 | by CHARLIE SPIERING

Posted on 05/07/2014 12:27:55 PM PDT by kingattax

House Speaker John Boehner explained to reporters Wednesday morning that he considers the select committee's investigation into the terrorist attacks in Benghazi a very serious matter.

“This is all about getting to the truth. This is not going to be a sideshow. This is not going to be a circus. This is a serious investigation,” Boehner said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has demanded that, for the sake of fairness, the committee be evenly split between Republicans and Democrats.

With five ‘RAT clowns on the committee, it will be impossible to keep it from becoming a circus.

I agree with Boehner, I say it will look more like a Freak Show than a circus!

If he doesn’t want it to be a circus, he should refuse to seat any Rats because they will see their job to be nothing less than to run interference for the Obummer administration.

The Dems plan to use it for a campaign commercial in November. The plan is to use it to show that the Republicans are too busy picking on poor Obama to save the economy or make jobs for the little people.

And, the GOP will allow them to make those assertions... they won't respond with anything at all.

Instead of taking the usual RINO defensive position, Boner should have made some tough statements about twenty months of Dim obstruction and refusal to supply relevant emails and other documents.

But that would take a leader and effective spokesman.

Boner is not in charge of this.

Trey Gowdy is.

After the email surfaced, forget it.

Tis goes way past partisanship. It was and is an international incident. Gowdy knows that.

the lib supporters, forget the personalities up there, are going to do whatever it is they always do.

No reason to ignore this. Gowdy has many years in, and he is after the truth, as are his supporters.

He is not going to allow a takeover of the proceedings.

The libs will look ridiculous arguing.

But the lib voters will hat Gowdy.

Oh well.

Yes, the ONLY way to help this NOT become a circus is for Boehner (and the House Republican leadership) to NOT be the ones selecting the members of the committee. That should be delegated to Trey Gowdy who would select based upon merit and background. Gowdy should also be given the authority to VETO the appointment of any DimocRAT clowns named for the sole purpose of disrupting and/or slowing down the proceedings.

The whole headline sounds like Gowdy is Boehner’s much needed and very able puppet master on this.

It’s like Chief Brody at the hospital talking to the “Mayor of Shark City”

The dems will do their best to make it a circus, complete with filibusters instead of questions, tirades accusing republicans of racism, walkouts, antics to disrupt serious questioning. Devoid of legitimacy, the left always falls back on disruption. Count on a circus, at least half the time. Despite Gowdy's best efforts, the five rat members will act like hostile juvenile delinquents.

Yep they need to get off the defense and get on the offense. Counter with an attack every single time. That’s what the Democrats do but no.......Republicans are always defensive.

Boner is not in charge of this.

And thank God for that. But Boner also doesn't need to make any sort of defensive statements, or say anything that even hints that the Dims attempt to portray this as a circus or sideshow is even worthy of a response.

Attack 20 months of Obama and Hillary and Democrat lying, stonewalling and covering up and don't respond to any MSM or Dim attempts to cheapen the need for the select committee.

Oh shut up John. Being Speaker of the House does not mean you just shoot off your mouth when an idle thought runs through your mind. You are the circus.
