Barack Obama, our next President

GOP Benghazi hearings a partisan disgrace

Perhaps during his next partisan exploitation of the tragic death of Americans at Benghazi, Libya, in political hearings paid for by American taxpayers, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) can replay then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warning him, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and other Republicans that their efforts to cut diplomatic security spending will endanger American lives.

Then House Republicans can testify en masse and offer a group apology for mocking and ignoring Clinton's warning.

The latest Issa public relations event, under the guise of a congressional hearing about the assault on the U.S Consulate in Benghazi, is the latest attack in the hyperpartisan and obsessive GOP war against President Obama, and it is the first failed attack against the most popular leader in America, who may well be the next president, Hillary Clinton.

Issa, whose abuse of congressional hearings for partisan political purposes sometimes makes him resemble a farm team Joseph McCarthy, joined Chaffetz and most Republicans in battling to cut embassy security spending before Benghazi.

As Welch said to McCarthy: Have they no shame? It will be a test of the integrity and professionalism of the media to watch whether Issa and Chaffetz are asked to apologize for their efforts to cut diplomatic spending every time they parade before the cameras in their partisan schtick.

There is more. After the Benghazi tragedy, Obama and Clinton designated retired Admiral and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael Mullen and Ambassador Thomas Pickering, who both served Republican and Democratic presidents with distinction, to investigate who was responsible for the Benghazi tragedy.

In a recent statement, Mullen and Pickering stated: "We had unfettered access to everyone and everything including all of the documentation we needed. Our marching orders were to get to the bottom of what happened, and that's what we did."

Are Issa and Chaffetz questioning the integrity of Mullen? Be careful, gentlemen. One of McCarthy's last acts before being brought down was attacking the integrity of the U.S. military.

There is more. I am one of Hillary Clinton's strongest supporters but have always said that mistakes were made before Benghazi and she should not be immune to criticism. But Clinton, to her great credit, stepped up to the plate and accepted responsibility long ago.

Will Republicans accept their responsibility for fighting to cut diplomatic security spending?

There is more. Now comes former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, talk show host and employee of Fox News, in the latest example of what increasingly looks like a GOP freak show, predicting President Obama will be forced to leave office early because of Benghazi.

There is more. Now comes the ubiquitous birther and former Republican front-running presidential candidate Donald Trump adding his one cent about Benghazi. My advice to Issa is cut out the public relations, cancel any further show-horse hearings, prepare an intelligent and bipartisan report, and stop wasting taxpayer money on these one-party spectacles.

Clinton took responsibility long ago. These GOP attacks have the force of being savaged by a dead sheep, and they have only left Clinton more popular than ever. Take a hint, Mr. Issa.

The propagandists are at least letting the clueless in on a few facts about the Benghazi hearings. They did report the focus is now being squarely placed on Hillary Clinton and the State Department's bungling of the attack that was in progress.
Nevertheless, true to form, they concluded all by their lonesomes that the coverup was still an "overreach".
Yeah, Hillary knew it was a terrorist attack when it was in progress but still told the victim's family at the funeral they would find who was responsible for "that video", telling the American people the same thing for days.
Yeah, the State Department knew a terrorist attack was in progress and did virtually nothing and then claims no one knew anything about nothin'.
Yeah, Obama knew everything Hillary and the State Department knew as soon as they knew it and still told the American people and the UN it was because of "that video" as much as two weeks later, long after Hillary and government officials came clean.
But, sure, a coverup is definitely an "overreach".
God help us.
Are you stupid and lazy for not proofreading your own posts? I'll apologize if the cause is that you had no formal school training in English grammar . Did you just write , "They did report the focus is now being squarely placed on Hillary Clinton and the State Department's bungling of the attack that was in progress."?!? You seem to want to say that the focus of the inquiry is that Hillary and the State Department launched an attack on our own consulate in Benghazi? That would indeed be a 'scandal',but where's your evidence, witnesses, etc.? Also, Hillary never mentioned the 'video' in her consoling words to the victims families .For me, this is not just a matter of policy, its personal. I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews, Clinton said, her voice breaking.I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children.

why else would FOX keep trying find an issue that will allow them to say 'it's not about race!'.
i just wonder if they'll ever find that 'issue'. not doing so good so far. just ask that Mitt guy.
The narcissis in chief only cares about himself. Obama's done more for gays,(2% of public) than he has for blacks (13% of public). Is it an accident? No, it's where his real love lies.

The democratic party has always helped and been on the side of the black man for years keeping blacks equal, aborted controlling their numbers, in their place, under-educated and poor, living off their masters wealth...liberals develop emotional attachment with the abuser or entity...

Yet wide spread opinion and ignorance among blacks? Race Trumps Common Sense....

This part is basic, but can't be repeated enough: Bachelor's holders (in blue below) have about half the unemployment rate of high school graduates (in red below). BA's are still suffering from double the low rate of joblessness they enjoyed pre-recession. And yes, they're even worse off than they were during the tepid economies of the early nineties or pre-housing bubble oughts. But on the whole, you'd much rather have a degree in this job market than not." Check this out: http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2...
Not if you have a marketable skill like being a plumber, electrician, etc.

And my reference was to crummy degrees from community colleges and third-rate four-year schools, not to real universities.

If George W. Bush and his administration had even been suspected of lying to the public about something of this magnitude to protect his political edge in an upcoming election - even without proof - you and Lily would have had your pitchforks out and storming the castle not just calling for his impeachment but his disembowelment.

The propagandists would be demanding his and everyone else's head brought to them on a platter and their bloody heads would be on the front page of every newspaper indefinitely.

We would have seen nothing but congressional hearings on every major network even before October 1 24/7 and Democrats having fits of anger wanting to impeach every Republican on Capital Hill.

You know it just as much as I and Lily and everyone else knows it.

Sure is a good think Obamatard followed the French in helping the Libyan rebels (Al Qaeda) take over in Libya so they could kill our ambassador and three other patriots.

Now the Al Qaeda flag flies high there!

Obama - Al Qaeda is on the run, Bin Laden dead!------ Mission Accomplished!

Is it a Cover-Up? My take, if you lie to avoid the Truth its a Cover-Up, if you change the Transcript from Terrorist Attack to a Spontaneous Attack cause by a Video its a Cover-Up, in my opinion its a Cover-Up!!
