Would the button-popping proud patriotic Gee-Oh--Pee-ers  use a heart-breaking tragedy to fill their political coffers and demean the lives of the men who died in BENGHAZI!?

Would those flag-waving, Kenyan-President-hating Goopers stoop to gutter politics and use the deaths of four Americans to squeeze money out of their gullible base and prolong the investigation of what Charlie Pierce calls "a banquet of nothing burgers?"  Would they continue to Darrell Issalize this terrible misfortune and use it as a grubby tool to raise filthy lucre for the upcoming 2014 elections?  And is Trey Gowdy just another preening hemorrhoid who's emerged from the deep dark fissures of Teabaggistan?

Is it true that the very same people, who condemned the Obambi administration for being tyrannically callous and deceitful over what happened on September 11, 2012, in Libya, would callously and deceitfully exploit that tragedy?

The Gee--Oh--Pee-ers' only goal is to get out their fat cat donors' money bags  the factlings and find out what really happened that night.  Their motives are noble and pure. They seek only the truth--a truth which they've been trying to get their unbiased factlets to conform to for almost two years and which has cost American tax payers millions of minimum wage dollars.  We can be sure that they will report their fair and balanced flying monkey poop, (with absolutely no Hitlery Klintoon or Obummer bias, to the American people, and those factoids will have nothing whatsoever to do with how much cash the they can get the TeaPublicans to stuff into those pure white envelopes and send to the RNCC.

Oh what difference does it make! This is America, and we all love really good scandalesque diversions. 

John Boehner dodges on Benghazi fundraising

"Asked again if it is proper for the National Republican Congressional Committee to use this committee money, Boehner said, “Our focus is getting the truth for these four families and for the American people.”  

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), whom Boehner tapped to chair the committee, has already said it’s inappropriate to try to raise political money off the investigation. Visitors to the NRCC web site who clicked on a Benghazi-related post this week were then asked to donate money to “stop Democrats from controlling all of Washington.” 

Morning Joe Slams GOP For ‘Undermining the Credibility of Benghazi Committee’ with Fundraising

Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the House select committee on Benghazi, said Republicans should not fundraise off “the backs of four murdered Americans.”

"Today's Daily Digit is brought to you by the fine folks up on Capitol Hill, who have mentioned the word "Benghazi" 72 times during floor speeches in the past eight days, according to data compiled by the Sunlight Foundation.
Ninety-eight percent of the mentions since January have come from Republicans.

Meanwhile, the word formerly known as the hottest buzzword of 2014 has gone incognito. Earlier in the year, Republicans stubbornly insisted that if they said Obamacare three (million) times, their 50+ senate seats would appear. However, "Obamacare" has been mentioned a paltry 19 times in floor speeches in those eight days.

Republicans seem to have found a new word to hang their 2014 hopes on."

The more reality-connected Republicans are realizing the ACA is getting past its initial troubles and will not be the magic election bullet they had hoped. Beating horses so long dead that they've fossilized is all they've got left.

After Benghazi fails to gain traction, once Hillary announces for President, they'll probably demand hearings on Whitewater or Lewinsky.

Rational Nation USA said...

Actually there are those (libertarians and conservatives) who find the republicans fixation on Benghazi nauseating. After multiple "investigations" nothing of real substance has turned up. But the republicans, equipped with the most recent e-mail must figure by digging deeper, perhaps in a new hole, they'll find something.

As to 2014, polling indicates it will be a republican year similar to 2012. Although, with the new poll showing declining support for the Tea Party things could change.

Duckys here said...

Keeps attention from the fact that the ACA is working out and diminishing quickly as a campaign issue.

I doubt Benghazi has any traction outside the Teabag bunker.

It's Deja Vu All Over Again said...

"We're all after THE TRUTH. Please, let's hope it comes out. Trey Gowdy is no Darryl Issa."

That's like saying Scooter Libby is no Dick Cheney.

Trey Gowdy: "It always matters whether or not you can trust your government."

So from the folks who hate everything to do with the government comes a guy who's saying "I'm from the government, trust me."


He's a TeaPublican. What's not to trust?

"Fresh off the 2012 death of her son, Massachusetts native Glen Doherty’s mother shamed the Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the GOP for trying to use her son’s death for their political agenda. She told them in no uncertain terms to knock it off. So now they’re literally fundraising off of his death.

In October of 2012, the Boston Globe ran Glen Doherty’s mother’s statement:

Mitt Romney will stop telling a story on the campaign trail of meeting Glen Doherty, the Winchester native and retired Navy SEAL who was killed last month in Libya, after Doherty’s mother accused the Republican presidential nominee of attempting to use her son’s death for political gain.

Earlier, Doherty’s mother, Barbara Doherty of Woburn, questioned the former Massachusetts governor’s motives for talking about her son.
“I don’t trust Romney,” she told WHDH-TV. “He shouldn’t make my son’s death part of his political agenda. It’s wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama.”

This wasn’t just for Mitt Romney. This was aimed at the party using her son as a political prop. How tragic that she felt so strongly compelled against Romney’s insincere claims that she had to come forward with such a statement in the middle of her fresh grief.

Years later, Republicans are now using the death of Glen and the three other Americans killed in the Benghazi attacks on the 9/11 anniversary to raise money for their party. Even Joe Scarborough finds their craven abuse of tragedy “disgusting”. The fact that the party machine is behind this speaks to the recklessness and thoughtlessness of the Republican Party’s current decision to once again use these four tragically murdered men for political gain and fundraising.

Republicans will pick at still fresh wounds and campaign on the dead, while simultaneously disrespecting the family’s wishes again. They excuse this by pretending that they just want the truth, but they have betrayed that claim by cherry picking testimony, ignoring the facts determined by their own Republican-led House Armed Services Committee, planting lies in the press in order to further their own fictionalized version of Benghazi, and grandstanding while hunting for bullets to destroy Hillary Clinton instead of focusing on recommendations based on their previous investigations. How is that helping the families? It’s not. It’s only dragging them through even more pain."

Teabagger motto: "Support Our Troops by using their deaths to Support Our Political Party."

I think the real question is, do we really have any “Whites?” We have become a nation of hypnotists. And just how fat do our “Whites” get?

Do we have the “Whites” to force our laws and our “Whites” and our Freesia on the rest of the world?

If you do, then who do we think we are that we can farce our views and morels on the rest of the world?

And when our own president can hosts a Muffin prayer breakfast knowing that homo sapiens get capital punishment in many Muffin countries. For example, If the Russians want to treat homo sapiens as perverts, then what gives us the right to force our briefs on them, it’s their “Right” to do as they please. We have more than enough poblanos over here.

Can't you see the hippodrome?

As for white people owing an apology to blacks for slavery, sorry but I smoke weed so I don't apologize for something that happened 150 pleasant years before I was bonged. Nor did my parents have anything to do with my bonging.

Anyone who wants an apricot for slavery, go find a slave owner and have him plant his own tree!!!

Annie Of Watertown said...

When are you liberals going to understand that we conservatives are the only Americans who care about this country and who know fascists when we see them. Benghazi will bring the Obama Kenyan Commie administration down. Pass the popcorn!

Shaw Kenawe said...

I had no idea Watertown had so many cuckoo banana people.

Arnaldo and Annie, what are you smoking?

okjimm said...

boy...that GOP conservative bunch....attack women'r rights, accuse Girl Scouts of being Lesbians, but nothing like dead bodies to raise money. As if Koch does not give them enough.

shaw, annie of watertown and arnaldo of watertown are conservative trolls.

Benghazi as tragic as it was only killed four people. The Republican governors who refuse to get on the ACA train will kill thousands by that bad decision.

Cladira Dreckne said...

If the GOBaggers keep talking about BENGHAZI! maybe people won't notice their hypocrisy.

It was well acknowledged that it was a terrorist attack. After the terrorist attack it was REPORTED to OBAMA and all his minions that it was a terrorist attack, yet he was in an election so he couldn't have an Al Qaeda victory. Therefore his administration lead by the hopeless and honorless Hilary Clinton total Valarie Jackson to go life on TV and LIE. They all knew that it was a terrorist attack, but they instructed everyone to lie and make up a story about a film that no one including the Muslims have ever heard of.

George Cumberbatch said...

AA4E, was "his administration" really Pb? And was "Valarie Jackson" in disguise as she went "life" on TV?

Man, you have a great career ahead of you doing jouranimalism once you learn how to write. You are a perfect example of the nincompoopery of the Baggers.

It is sad that in the same day four Americans were murdered Presbo attended a fund raiser in LA and Jarrett sent the troupes out with the cartoon
Thanks for pointing out that it is all about fundraising

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anon, that you don't understand the difference between what you wrote and what the GOP is fundraising on now shows your utter ignorance in all things Benghazi.
