Democrats are more outraged that the NRCC fundraised off of Benghazi than they are about what actually happened in Benghazi, the administrations response and all of the unanswered questions.
Tom Cotton puts all that to rest right here:
Mr. Speaker, couple lessons I learned in the Army were you moved to the sound of gunfire and the most important step in the troop leading procedures is to supervise the execution of you orders.
When Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi, Barack Obama did neither. He sent no quick reaction force and didnt even stay in the situation room to supervise the execution of his orders. We expect more from the lieutenants in the army than our president gave us that night.
For two years hes covered up this failure of leadership by stonewalling. Not anymore. We will now get to the truth.
But what do our colleagues on the other side of the aisle say to this? They express great outrage at politicizing this matter.
When I was leading troops in Iraq in 2006, men and women who were being shot at and blown up by al Qaeda, where was the outrage as they fundraised endlessly off the Iraq war?
Where was the outrage as they viciously attacked our commanders?
Where was the outrage when they said soldiers were war criminals?
Where was the outrage when they said the war was lost?
Where was the outrage when they said only high school dropouts join the Army?
Forgive me if I dont join my democratic colleagues in their fake outrage. Four Americans lost their lives that night in Benghazi. They deserve justice and the American people deserve the truth.
One other lesson I learned in the Army is that we leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.
Anyone seen this?
BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO!
Right after the release of our Iranian hostages, many U.S. newspapers ran a front page picture of an eagle soaring with wings spread out . . .
I felt very proud at seeing that picture . . . I feel proud when I read a congressman saying the words that an American ought to be saying.
Amen! Tom Cotton!
This guy is a democrat???
Makes me wonder what he knew about September 11, 2012.
District 4 Republican . . . a demoncrap would never speak such words.
Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas)
I get sick to my core when do nuthin know nuthin whinnin squat to pee FREEPERS say nuthin is gonna happen
makes me ashamed
Republican Arkansas 4th district.
Sadly, it seems, you are no longer preaching to the choir . . .
Yea, where are all those whiney “no difference between Republicans and Democrats” freepers to comment on the words of Congressman Cotton?
YAH! TELL IT TOM!
First they lied, then they lied about lying, then they lied about lying about lying, and they're still lying.
We have seen it too many times before. That is why some are saying nothing will be done most likely. Like I said in another thread. The Democrats are crying that it isn’t fair that they have these investigations on Benghazi when they didn’t investigative President Reagan for the bombing at the towers full of Marines. I said, “that is their problem. If they felt they needed too, they had both the House and Senate” and could have done whatever they wanted. Just because they didn’t fulfill their desire or obligation doesn’t mean the Republicans are going to.
