ALAN GRAYSON: Here's How I Plan To Make The Benghazi Investigation A 'Nightmare' For Republicans
AP yahoo business insider ^ | 5/20/2014 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 05/20/2014 7:35:25 PM PDT by sickoflibs

Rep. Alan Grayson, a Democrat from Florida, has a plan to become Republicans' "worst nightmare" if he is indeed appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the select committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. (clip)

Grayson said he would use the Benghazi hearings as an opportunity to draw attention to other issues important to "ordinary Americans" that have not received as much attention.

(clip)

Following DeLauro's proposal, liberal groups hatched another idea: send Grayson. A petition on the CREDO group's website has already garnered more than 65,000 signatures.

Grayson said it's up to Pelosi to determine how she wants to approach the number of people she sends to participate. He said he's "ready, willing, and more than able" to be on the committee and, if he's chosen he would be Republicans' "worst and last nightmare."

Grayson also offered Business Insider a preview of what that "nightmare" would look like. During the proceedings, Grayson said he would attempt to draw attention to other issues for which he thought voters would also like select committees to be formed.

"I'll be asking why there's no select committee on income inequality. I'll be asking why there's no select committee on immigration reform. I'll be asking why there's no select committee on the minimum wage. I'll be asking why there's no select committee on anything that has anything to do with the lives of ordinary Americans," Grayson said.

Grayson predicted he would draw attention to the 60 people who died from embassy attacks under the Bush administration, as well as questioning why there wasn't a select committee established to investigate the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack.

A bit like sending Rosencrantz and Guildenstern? The Republicans should want Grayson to talk as much as possible. This thing is a loser for the Dems, and this idiot just might draw attention to it.

I wonder if Alan thinks that 'ordinary' Americans were overly concerned about a 3rd rate burglary at the Watergate Hotel where no one died?

A guy enters a Roman Catholic Church confessional booth.

He tells the priest, “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the hell out of an Obama supporter.”

The priest says, “My son, I’m here to forgive your sins, not to discuss your community service

The guy is a lefty jerk and he knows it. If he wants to make a circus out of the hearings then let this fool be. He’s the worst kind of Democrat out there; a loudmouth, ignorant white liberal. He’ll get his lunch handed to him in due time, and that smirk will be taken off his face in a hurry.

Two thousand years ago, a Greek said that the party to a dispute who walked away corrected was the real winner.
The correct disputant gained nothing from the exchange.
This rectum-with-arms would have no idea what Aristotle meant, or care. I’m sick of libs, sickoflibs.

On the plus side, if they send this clown, Republicans can point to him and Hillary, and Obozo as the reason why there are no Benghazi prosecutions. Plus, anyone with one neurons still firing will wonder how the Dems could be so stupid as to send this POS to the committee.

POS.

Someone should ask why don’t we have a select committee on Congressmen who beat their wives and lose their fortunes to grifters.

They are as serious about this issue as they are about the VA debacle. Gowdy should be able to turn this clown around on that single issue alone.

If this sub-human causes a disturbance, Gowdy should instruct the Sergeant-At-Arms to remove him from the room. I believe it is within his purview to do so.

In light of this asshat’s blanket statement about TEA Partiers being klan members, I’ve put him an his staff on notice, if, while attending a TEA Party rally we are in any way assaulted, and there’s reason to believe the perpetrator was influenced by Grayson’s incendiary statements we will file suit against Grayson and his staff for vicarious liability. Ironically, this same legal tactic was successfully used by the NAACP and SPLC against White supremacist John Metzger involving a racially motivated murder, in which Metzger paid dearly.

Doubt if he’s talked to any “ordinary Americans”. If he did,he might realize that the best thing for him would be to just keep his mouth shut & save himself some embarrasment.

So let me get this straight...liberals want to set up obstacles and cause chaos to keep the families of Navy Seals, soldiers and CIA employees from finding out what happened to them in Benghazi. Liberals can be insensitive pricks if you find out they are to blame.
