Americans Died; Obama, Clinton Lied; And GOP… Punted
I guess it doesn’t matter which member of the GOP you are talking about. If that person is in Washington, he or she becomes a member of the establishment, and the only things that seem to matter is getting along with the Democrats and staying in power. The GOP won’t stand up for anything (laundry list to follow), and now, when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could be held to the fire for American deaths at the hands of Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, the GOP punted.
I could be wrong, but I think I’m like most grassroots conservatives and most Americans who turned to the GOP for action on the last several election cycles. The Democrats controlled everything, and they rammed through a leftwing agenda (Obamacare and more) just like they said they would. Americans rebelled and gave control of the House and Senate to the Republicans. GOP leaders promised conservative action. They promised they would stand up to Barack Obama. They have done NOTHING!
They promised to defund Obamacare. They haven’t. They said they would oppose Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal aliens. They haven’t. They said they would cut spending. They haven’t. They said they would put a stop to Planned Parenthood’s grotesque practices of harvesting human organs. They haven’t!
When Donald Trump first started running for president, GOP establishment leaders flocked to the media and made statements questioning Trump’s loyalty to the party. They demanded he sign a pledge saying he would support the eventual GOP nominee. Now, Trump IS the eventual GOP nominee, and those same establishment leaders are going back on the same pledge they pushed on Trump.
But surely, even with all that I have listed, GOP members of the House would certainly serve as the voices of those Americans killed in Benghazi and make sure that Obama and Clinton were held accountable to the American people, not only for their inaction when Americans were under attack, but also for their blatant lies. Nope. The GOP backed off again, and simply wasted our money.
As reported by Breitbart.com, conservative stalwart Brent Bozell blasted the report put forward by the House Select Committee on Benghazi and it’s so-called conservative leader Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).
At a press conference Tuesday, Gowdy released his committee’s final report, refusing to blame President Obama or then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as refusing to say directly if Clinton lied to the American people regarding the Benghazi attacks.
Instead, Gowdy said it was up to Americans to read the report and make their own assessment.
“It was up to him to get to the truth, and he punted,” Bozell said. “Just as with the IRS investigation, the Republicans lacked the fortitude to confront those responsible.”
Bozell further blasted the committee’s report, saying, “Should the Secretary of State be held responsible for the disastrous consequences of State Department decisions? Not according to this report. They wouldn’t even state that Hillary Clinton lied about the video though her own emails, read by committee members, prove she had! But they did blame a ‘rusty bureaucratic process.'”
As noted by Politico.com, the report goes on and on and on about how Obama and Clinton stonewalled the committee, but they stop short of what they were paid to do: come to conclusions and assess blame. That is NOT the job of the American people (as Bozell noted), it is the job of the GOP members of this committee! (Because we already know the Democrats wont’ do anything.)
If we keep electing Republicans who won’t do anything, can we really blame them for not doing anything? Americans died! Clinton and Obama lied publicly for weeks about the cause of the attacks. And no one is being held accountable. Is it any wonder that an anti-establishment wave is sweeping the country? All of these people need to go!
