The video is pretty darn good. The excerpt doesn't do it justice.

Whew! That was righteous.

It’s too bad that the folks in the background were smirking. It would have been a much better presentation if they simply appeared deeply concerned.

That is PRICELESS. Only thing missing is a view of the embarrassed ‘journalists’ chewing their pencil stubs and looking at the floor.

It matters to everybody that was watching. Gowdy is showing the clowns up to BE clowns.

Keep this up and there will be a “draft Gowdy for president” movement.

” - - - It’s too bad that the folks in the background were smirking. - - - “

I disagree.

For most of their sorry careers, Republicans have been fearful of the thin-skins of the “Delicate Democrats from DC.”

Now is the time for Republicans to finally realize that the epitomy of Democrat Decadence has been the Regime of B. Hussein Obama and his Democrat supporters.

This current Obamanation is the best that the Democrats have been able to do, and America has been left in a shambles because of the actions of the Democrats and the cave-in, permissiveness of their Doormat Republicans, such as Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Ryan, Issa, Mike Rogers and Peter King of New York.

Smirking by Republicans must be replaced yesterday with knee-slapping, raucous laughter, followed by slaps on the backs of each speaker who sticks it to the Democrats and the Democrat’s Left Stream Media.

Nicey-nice is a fool’s failed game that has never influenced Democrats, and is a game that Republicans can no longer afford to play.

Chairman Trey Gowdy is the new Sheriff in town, and going for the Democrat’s jugular, EVERY TIME, is the new normal in the District of Corruption.

Breitbart warned us that this is WAR!

This is one FReeper that says BRING IT !

Gowdy for president in 2020....
oh heck why not in 2016?

He will get plenty name recognition after Select Committee proceeds this summer.

He is like a bulldog that never lets go, as a good prosecutor always does. But is he for immigration reform?

It's been a while. I've seen this speech posted as early as December 1, 2013 on another site, so I assume it was made in late November, or on December 1.

Age does not diminish its relevancy. In fact, the longer the Congressman's questions go unanswered, the greater importance they assume.

I wouldn't mind playing some poker with them.

But if they are the other republican committee members they are going to have to work on their game faces.

Gowdy was excellent!!

Someone posted (comment at link) that as DA for Spartanburg, SC he won 100% of his cases. Not sure if that’s true, but it certainly seems believable after watching this.

I ‘like’ this guy but we all must remember
a young, personable Congressman from SC, who was an absolute ‘pit bull’ during the Clinton Congressional Impeachment hearings.
He was a comer, that made Newt look like a genius for putting him on that committee.
And he was getting a lot of ‘talk’ as being the ‘future of the Party’.

Yes folks, the same LINDSAY GRAHAM, who— once he got elected to the Senate became the Poster Boy (OR GIRL) for GOPe, along with his ‘mentor’ John McCain.

If its true that he never lost a case it means he didn’t charge weak cases or overcharge strong ones. Both are the epitome of what a prosecutor should be.

"Breitbart warned us that this is WAR! This is one FReeper that says BRING IT ! "

Boy, I couldn't agree more! It's long overdue.

And I think we will win people over (which we must do to win elections) with the right tactics, especially by impressions.

The smirking just reminds me of Jay Carney with his little pathetic demeaning sneer. And our dear leader gloating about winning an election. That's terrible. I'd like to see us win votes by taking the high road (think Reagan), not alienate potential voters.

We can be strong while considering how a voter on the fence will perceive us. That's how we'll win people over.

Thx for the info!

I must have missed it before....been watching Trey Gowdy’s career for a while.

He is very good on TV, rare for a Republican.

You can catch him on true crime stuff...from when he was prosecuting.

Could be.

If a pol wants to energize the base they can get them excited by attacking. If they want to draw in more neutral voters they must tone down the message.

I've had quite enough of wishy washy pubs. I'll listen to Sarah with pleasure, thanks.

I just fear it takes more than that to win elections. I'll be the first to admit I have no answers.

Fair enough.

Dole, McCain and Romney all ran with no fire in the belly.

I can only find a handful of Republicans who have fire in the belly; Cruz, Lee, Gowdy, Gomert.

Political victory always goes to the politician that stays on Offense.

My question to you is as follows:

“What is the probability of a Republican politician being able to stay on Offense if he /she does not have consistent fire in the belly?”
