What Scumbags

I suppose I should say "lockstep Democrats", and they mean the same thing, but "scumbags" seem to be a better choice.

I would like to point out the names of the fucking scumbags who walked out of a committee meeting, rather than hear the testimony of those most closely affected. To be more specific, a meeting of the House Oversight and Government Reform, which had been receiving testimony from family members of those killed more than a year ago at the consulate and compound in Benghazi, Libya.

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

 I gathered the entire membership of the committee from this page and since the only two scumbags who stayed are mentioned by name (Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier), it is easy to winnow down the names of the fucking scumbags who either walked out, or didn't bother to show up in the first place.

I would have locked the door behind them, and held a few key votes right away. If any of these are your representative, you have my condolences, and my strongest suggestion that you get them on the horn and demand an accounting.

Of course, they have already received their marching orders from Broomstick One regarding Benghazi:

Scumbags, one and all.

Might I suggest that the reason for the walkout is that those involved know very well that the testimony to be given will do serious -- possibly lethal -- damage to the administration. As well it should, were it composed of loyal Americans. They dare not countenance such truth-telling, so they attempt this persiflage to distract from it.

Which fact ought to be asserted by the Republicans in the course of doing their duty. Never let enemy kack-handedness go to waste.

The damage will be done no matter who is in the audience. This is just the Dems refusing to hear the truth, when they have been putting out the lie that it was all about a video (the guy is still in jail, I should point out), and refusing to look at the contrary evidence.

Lockstep, almost to a man. Scumbags, the lot of them.

It's not like the Democrat Party has ever given a flying fuck about American lives overseas anyways. This is not a shock or a surprise to me.
