House Speaker John A. Boehner on Thursday demanded that President Obama explain why his administration has struggled to handle the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in a move that could raise the political peril to the White House.
In a letter to Mr. Obama, the Republican speaker demanded that the president answer five questions including why his administration turned down requests for more security at the diplomatic post, and why the White House didnt do a better job of acknowledging it as a terrorist attack until well after the fact.
Our country will not be able to move on from the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2012, until the public better understands the answers, Mr. Boehner wrote.
The Ohio Republican is stepping into a fight that his partys presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, has shied away from in recent weeks. At this weeks foreign policy debate, Mr. Romney didnt raise any questions about the White Houses handling of Benghazi, and instead repeatedly praised Mr. Obamas decision-making.
But House Republicans have pushed the issue, including using their control of the House oversight committee to release internal administration emails that indicate some in the administration should have been able to spot the terrorist roots of the attack early on.

Boehner came out from under his worthless rock?
the no action big mouth with female plumbing
Whoa!!! Out of the tanning salon, kicked out of the bar and he finally must have read a newspaper.
O: “I’ll get back to you on that John - right after the election.
Boehner has gotta go!
Mr. Worthless needs to have his gavel taken away from him and given to someone who is worthy.
>>> In a letter to Mr. Obama, ....
This is A JOKE, right?
Was the mail lost for 6 weeks?
As usual, this phony is late to the party. Why do the American people need Representatives, who merely posture, only after we’ve raised a clamor. What is Boehner’s job description? Perhaps, we no longer require his services!
It wasn't election season.
He had a hangover.. needed time to get his thoughts together.
Now, that's just funny.
Did he demand it with his legs crossed with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of red wine in the other?? Boehner is so worthless!
Who is Boehner?
