May 11, 2014, 09:40 am Wasserman Schultz: Benghazi focus meant to drive GOP turnout

By Cameron Joseph

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) slammed Republicans for creating a select committee on Benghazi, arguing they did it to gin up conservative enthusiasm because they'd lost on ObamaCare.

"The bottom line here is that Republicans have clearly lost the ability, because we've had such a precipitous drop among Republicans even in their fervor for repealing the Affordable Care Act, that they are clearly doing this to drive their turnout," Wasserman Schultz said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning.

"The Republicans have lost this as an issue that they can gin their base up. That's why they've turned to this select committee on Benghazi."

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) laughed at the suggestion that ObamaCare was no longer a salient issue for Republicans.

"This is the issue Democrats are running from, and rightfully so," she said.

Bachmann also defended the committee's creation.

"What this committee is doing is doing a very careful look at a very deliberate place to go through depositions of people on the ground to find out the truth of what's happened," she said. "We need to get answers. This cannot be politicized."

Benghazi is a top issue for some in the GOP base, but polls show it hasn't emerged as a major concern for Americans. Polls also show ObamaCare remains unpopular, but that those who want to repeal it rather than make changes to it are in the minority.

Debbie keep using the mind altering products before you babble on.

That the _resident is a murderer should be an issue for anyone claiming to be conservative.

Hey Deb -

Who gave the order to stand down forces that night?

Were American weapons being funneled to Al-Queda forces through that “consulate”?

Just how deeply has the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated the White House and Democrat party?

They refuse to answer, cannot answer or even debate the facts and the events that surrounded that night when 4 Americans were murdered with full knowledge by virtually everyone in the Obama Administration and their choice to “let it all happen.”

Instead, they send out shills like DWS, former officials who can’t be prosecuted for outright lying, and media shills who spend all their time on their knees servicing the Democrats.

A more despicable lot never lived in my opinion.

It's amazing that the Democrats are a political party that is based upon lying. The moment it begins to speak the truth, it's “supporters” will abandon them and the party will collapse

- Obamacare
- Fast & furious
- The IRS Scandal
- Lois Lerner & the IRS
- Benghazi Slaughter of Americans
- The VA planned killing of military veterans
- The Failed USA Eonomy
- The Miserable GDP Growth Rate
- The Failure To Grow Good Paying Jobs
- The Destruction of African-American Family Unit & High Unemployment For African-Americans Caused By Obama policies

Ms. Wassermann....would you like for me to go on???

My theory on why we have not captured are killed the leaders of the terrorist attack on our counsalate and why we have not been able to talk to the survivors:

1. It was a gun running operation funneling arms to Al-Queda in Libya for transport to Syria and also used in other violence in North Africa.
2. Al Queda has made it clear to the president if they are attacked and or killed, the information about the gun running will be released to the public.
3. If we can get the survivors under oath in the hearings, all hell will break lose when they testify. The majority of these survivors are CIA.

I would start the hearings with the head of the CIA, he will lie. I would then work down the food chain of the CIA until I get the truth. I would then work back up the food chain to the top.

There are 30 survivors out there we have not spoke to officially. I suspect some are talking off the record. They were left there to die. They are pissed off.

I’m just enjoying all this too much.
The GOP strategy need be nothing more than stating the facts, being aggressive in revealing new facts, and letting the Dems wet their pants on a daily basis.

Look at Debbie Was a Man Shultz playing politics with dead Americans.

Dear Deb, whether or not they have a hearing on Benghazi isn’t going to make me vote for them. The GOP has completely lost me, and there really isn’t anything they can do to get me back.

That being said, I ain’t voting for your ilk either, because you and yours are even more disgusting.

Debbie keep using the mind altering products before you babble on.

You know, I think you're on to something.

She is an uber-RAT, which gives her cover for lying and illegal activity. I'll bet that drug of choice is meth-amphetamines. That would enable her to run her mouth at 240MPH without stumbling over her words.

Of course the only thing coming out of her mouth (lies) is totally natural to her.

Add, “specifically why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi that day?”

While we’re at it, is it true that the survivors of the Benghazi attacks were compelled to sign non-disclosure agreements? If so, why?

Another more general question - Is there any doubt that both Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew would have served their full terms if their administration had been half as skillful at obstructing justice and silencing opposition as the current one is?

During "March Madness," "Fox & Friends" had a brackets chart with 64 Obama Administration scandals. I think the one which won was the IRS scandal.

They probably could have made it 128 scandals.

I have the same guess, when I have on accident, heard her spew her lies/venom at the speed of sound.

“Beware of women with three names.”

My wife clued me in on your excellent warning over 50 years ago.

We have the same awareness with men who use two surnames.
