Dems Leave Before Hearing Testimony from Parents on Benghazi

From Breitbart and The Blaze:

U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, revealed that Democrats excused themselves from a Thursday hearing on Benghazi before the family members of the slain American heroes testified.

It is unclear why Democrats were not interested in hearing what Patricia Smith, the mother of slain information management officer Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, had to say.

Issa tweeted a photo on Thursday showing the empty side of the room where Democrats are normally seated. The only Democrats who stuck around were Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.).

Democrats who reportedly left the hearing include: Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY); Danny Davis (D-IL); Gerald Connolly (D-VA); Jim Cooper (D-TN); John Tierney (D-MA); Mark Pocan (D-WI); Matt Cartwright (D-PA); Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM); Peter Welch (D-VT); Stephen Lynch (D-MA); Steven Horsford (D-NV); Tammy Duckworth (D-IL); Tony Cardenas (D-CA); William Lacy Clay (D-MO); and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC).


Even if the testimony of these parents has no bearing on the events of that night, the Dems could at least have the common decency to listen. This is an insult and a slap in the face to Mrs. Smith and Mr. Woods, as well as to Mr. Issa and his committee.

These democrats showed disdain for these parents and basically walked off the job. Their constituents should be burning up the phone lines with angry calls and demanding to know why they ‘excused’ themselves.

There is no ‘excuse’ for this, but it is predictable and typical behavior for these Demwits, as we’ve come to expect.

    You know full well why the idiots left. Kind of hard, I would imagine, to sit there and be told how goddamned INCOMPETENT you are, along with your “leaders”. Good find, Kathy, albeit the pisstivity meter has to go in the freezer for a bit.

  2. Buck says:

    No. They left because they have no concern for the thoughts, feelings or questions of the peasantry.
    Believe me.
    They DO see themselves as an aristocracy.
    Proof? They exempt themselves from laws they pass for the rest of us.
    Your honor, the defense rests!

  3. Kathy says:

    Clyde and Buck – You’re both right – they do think they’re aristocrats and they’re incompetent at it.

  4. Buck says:

    Kathy-I do hope they can learn from how the French disposed of their ruling aristocracy. Before it’s too late.

  5. Buck says:

    More on above. Out of the chaos of the French Revolution and following bloodbath rose the 18th Century tyrant who tried to conquer the world.
    And he, too, failed.

    That….that….sorry, I am having a hard time finding the right words. This IS abominable!

  7. Hardnox says:

    Thanks for posting this and exposing the lefty bastards for who they are. I’ll take bets that these scum would have stayed if Trayvon’s parents were the ones testifying.

  8. Terry says:

    Boy you nailed it there, ‘Nox !
    These gutless bastards have no time for real Patriots.
    What a shameful display of arrogance.
