Boehner using Benghazi to score points with hardline conservatives

So it's true: House Speaker John Boehner sees Benghazi as a political gambit. And I know you're as shocked to learn this as the guy with that awesome mustache over there to right.

Boehner has told leadership colleagues when they’re focusing on the terrorist attack, they’re fighting on their political ground.

“This is all Boehner,” said one senior Republican aide of the focus on Benghazi.“He’s obsessed with it. He brings it up all the time.” The sentiment was echoed with conversations throughout leadership, and the dynamic is acknowledged by his own aides.

For Boehner and GOP leaders, specifically, it has also become an effective way help them win valuable points with a right wing that has distrusted — and at times embarrassed — the leadership.

And proving the already obvious point that Boehner's ploy has worked like a charm with the wingnuts, here's RWNJ congressman Jason Chaffetz:

“More and more, I’m appreciating the wisdom of Boehner,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican on the Oversight Committee, who has been among those who has led the Benghazi charge.

Yes, wisdom. Because in the GOP bubble, it's wise to spend enormous amounts of energy investigating why the administration got milquetoast talking points wrong, even though the issue was litigated in a presidential election, including the most memorable moment of the 2012 debates. It didn't work then, but apparently they think it'll work in 2016. And if it keeps them off his back, John Boehner is happy to play along. To borrow a phrase: "Please proceed."

It so sad, but to pathetic.

The only Human Contact that Slewblomkin has is on Topix.

One the one hand why not just end it all and take that OD Of Thorazine.

On the other hand, as long as Slewblomkin is here, He is not hurting "live" Humans!

We are "Taking the Bullets", so that Slewblomkin does not go out and go Columbine before he takes himself out.

"Rah Rah Team Topix" eh?

Too bad the drunken Consistent can't do anything besides lob insults.

I guess when you've been a drunk that many years it becomes hard to put a coherent thought together.

Do you really think that the president makes every decision at every layer of government?

Are you really that stupid?
