As Benghazi Drags on, and on, and on...

The New York Times - ... Mrs. Clinton used her time in the witness chair to chide the Republican-led committee for what she called a failure to pursue a bipartisan search for the truth. In her opening statement, and later in response to prodding by friendly Democratic lawmakers, the former secretary of state said investigations of previous tragedies were handled cooperatively by both parties.

“That’s what happened during the Reagan administration, when Hezbollah attacked our embassy,” Mrs. Clinton said, citing similar bipartisanship around investigations under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. “I would like us to get back to those times.”

After a series of questions by Republicans focused on what kind of communications she had had on security in Benghazi, Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California, accused them of pursuing a kind of prosecution against Mrs. Clinton in an attempt to damage her presidential campaign.

“I think the core theory is this — that you deliberately interfered with security in Benghazi and that resulted in people dying,” Mr. Schiff told Mrs. Clinton. “I think that is the case they want to make, and notwithstanding how many investigations we’ve had that have found absolutely no merit to that, that is the impression they wish to give.”

Sane folks continue to wonder just what the hell has happened to the GOP. Is it hypocrisy? Is it stupidity? Hate for H.R. Clinton? Fear they are becoming irrelevant? What?

Personally I vote for #1 and #2. How about you?

  1. I may be a bit partisan, but Hillary looked like the only adult in the room.

  2. HRC will likely come through this and on to the next republican manufactured scandal. And I'm certainly no fan with a bias for HRC.

  3. Again, the TGOPers snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory.

  4. Was the victory they were plotting for ever in the realm of possibility? I think not.

  5. From Mediaite:

    Senate Democrats: GOP Should Pay Back "Every Penny" Spent on Benghazi Committee... "Due to the political nature of the committee, we believe it is inappropriate that a reported 4.7 million taxpayer dollars were used to finance its operations and that the RNC subsequently orchestrated numerous fundraising opportunities in its wake”, [a letter sent by Senate Dems to the RNC] reads.

  6. That of course will go nowhere Dervish. You do realize that, right?

    1. Yes. Congressional Repubs have a LONG history of spending large amounts of taxpayer money "investigating" the Clintons. The purpose of the letter was to make a political point only. After the failure of the Benghazi "investigation" they're going to "investigate" Planned Parenthood. More taxpayer money put to "good" use.
