(By The Pragmatic Pundit)
Before the smoke could settle in Benghazi, Mitt Romney was licking his prevaricating pouter…he could finally pierce Obama’s formidable foreign policy veneer. The House Republicans were so elated at the thought of embarrassing the Obama Administration, the lazy, do-nothing bums called a hearing in the middle of their long recess. This was big! It was the October surprise….a cover-up!
The lawmakers ordered a public hearing on a matter that clearly belonged behind closed doors, but they were intent on belittling the President in a public display.
It didn’t quite work out.
Instead of uncovering some sinister plot of deception, they exposed the CIA to the whole world and ended up looking like a horses ass, not unlike Mitt Romney had during the debate. In an attempt to overshadow their foolishness, Thug Issa released Libyan cables that contained sensitive information; this time exposing and endangering the lives of Libyans who work with the U.S.
When the horror of 9/11 occurred, the country stood united in our resolve. We were neither Democrats nor Republicans, we were Americans. Today’s Republicans disgrace everything America stands for. They are willing to put everything and everyone at risk in order to win.
But they got punked!
Several news accounts now verify that the explanation given by UN Ambassador Susan Rice was the statement issued by the CIA. Republicans called her incompetent and asked for her resignation. Do you suppose they’ll apologize?
Whatever President Obama is, he is not stupid. Common sense dictates the lack of an attempted cover-up. What would be the purpose? Since he knew the truth would come out, what would be the sense in lying? He knows he has many, many detractors and he knows it’s October. Clearly, if Congress thought it had something, it would still be in session beating that dead horse.
Hearings have been canceled until after the election.
