Skip to comments.Heilemann: McCarthy Comments on Benghazi Hearings 'Disaster' for Republicans
Posted on 09/30/2015 3:35:24 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
How damaging to Republicans are Speaker-presumptive Kevin McCarthy's comments in which he tied the drop in Hillary's poll numbers to the Benghazi hearings? Very damaging, according to the With All Due Respect duo on today's show. John Heilemann called them a "disaster" for congressional Republicans and GOP presidential candidates alike. Mark Halperin called them a "huge, huge problem" for the GOP.
Interestingly, Halperin praised committee chairman Trey Gowdy, saying that he had been "carefully preparing the hearings, trying to do what no Republican has done in a long time, run a politically effective, substantive hearing." But, said Halperin, there's "almost nothing he can do now."

How much will/should Kevin McCarthy’s comments to Hannity about Benghazi hearings affect his candidacy for Speaker?
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
This guy is a moron.
Meet the new boss.
Same as the old boss.
He needs to be dumped anyway since he was one of Boehner’s top hitmen.
Is this satire? Hurt Republicans? Give me a break.
It was put very poorly by McCarthy who, as a potential Speaker, should know enough not to give the Democrats ammunition. There have never been a group of Democrats worse than these at twisting reality to their advantage.
Has anyone besides me considered that this was planned to sabotage the hearings?
I wouldn’t put it past both the Crying Cheeto and his henchmen McCarthy.
Heilemann: Hillary a ‘Commander-in-Chief,’ Trump and Cruz ‘Clowns’
McCarthy is every bit as big a doofus as is Boehner.
BINGO!! and Hillary will SKATE FREE!!
Hellary and Whilly have the goods on most of the Political Class, and they aren’t afraid to use it. We have the makings of WWIII and the War Against Liberty all in one tidy package. Just freaking great.
Substituting an imbecile for a cry-baby as Speaker....
Since Hillary Clinton is hiding government secrets on her server, then opposing her politically is a patriotic act. And we all know it’s a cover-up about her involvement in Benghazi.
You need to read this:
Yup, just as I called it. The Little Snake was attempting to scrap the Committee so when he took over he could claim his hands were clean and then the SOB would work with the RATS to push Liberal Legislation.
Let’s see who in the Press with call McCarthy out on it?
Hold his feet to the fire!
This guy is a moron.
These "Morons" are well placed throughout the government to insure that the trajectory toward destruction of the Republic continues unimpeded. Accidental? I think not. JMHO!
His comments eliminate any possibility Gowdy runs for any leadership position. Perhaps reports of Gowdy resigning are not from Gowdy but are GOPe instructions.
