I don’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for Speaker John of Orange, but this is what happens when you ride a tiger; regardless of whether it was of your choosing or not, eventually you have to get off, and that’s when the tiger will turn and bite you….quoting Think Progress:
Proponents of conspiracy theories about what the Obama administration is hiding about the 2012 attack on an American outpost in Benghazi have a new target in their sights: Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH).
“I don’t think at this point in time that it’s necessary,” Boehner told Fox News in May about the desire from some in his party to form a “special committee” in the House of Representatives to investigate the the attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission that killed four Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. That denial has true believers in President Obama’s malfeasance the night of the crisis — whatever that may be — turning on Boehner, despite the Speaker having reportedly made clear that he believes the Benghazi issue is a winner for the GOP.
The advocacy group Special Operations Speaks (SOS) recently announced that it is circulating a petition and would be placing billboards in Boehner’s congressional district calling out the Speaker for turning his back on the cause. “ONE MAN stands between the American people and the Watergate-style Select Committee needed to get to the truth and deliver justice. It’s not Barack Obama. It’s not Eric Holder. It’s not John Kerry either,” the email announces, “House Speaker John Boehner is the ONE MAN blocking a real investigation of Benghazi.”
“Boehner’s stonewalling is helping Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and the rest of Obama’s corrupt administration get away with the deadliest scandal in American history,” the email goes on to read, referencing the various debunked theories about the supposed cover-up. According to SOS, by not taking action on forming a special committee, Boehner “continues to help hide the truth by denying a vote to form a Select Committee.”(Think Progress)
Just to prove the point, several House Republicans, including Reps. Frank Wolf(R-VA), Louie Goehmert(R-TX) and Steve Stockman(R-TX), filed House Resolution 36, which would require a Watergate-style Select Committee to investigate the events of the Benghazi Consular Attack on Sept. 11th, 2012, something that has been investigated countless times in countless investigations up to now. What makes the conspiracists’ complaints laughable is that Speaker
John of Orange Boehner has all-but-been one of those calling more even more investigations into Benghazi…
Despite all of this, all of the conspiracy theories and what-not, most Americans don’t even give it a second glance, according to most polls; even House GOP staffers, by most accounts, are growing sick of the whole mess…but hey, if Republicans want to waste time on that, then Senate Democrats’ should take a moment to remind the Republicans’ of all the numerous times U.S. consular facilities were attacked during the 8 years of the Bush-Cheney Administration…after all, fair is fair, right?
