Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, tells Benghazi witnesses that "death is a part of life."

CUMMINGS: And, as I listen to your testimony I could not help but think of something that I said very recently -- two years ago now -- in a eulogy for a relative. I said that death is a part of life....

How broad-minded of him, but then the deaths he’s so philosophical about do tend to be other people’s, don’t they?

So why the social justice they want to push so much then?

Everybody just needs to accept ‘a part of life’ and (quote) “learn from this” (unquote).

I’m so VERY SURE Mr. Cummings uttered the same sentiments when Obama’s “son” Trayvon Martin was killed.

It seems the democrats would rather believe the testimony of men who were not there and would lie to protect the guilty than believe men who were there and were lucky to survive.

Cummings was a disgrace from the moment he opened his illiterate mouth, and the rest are no better. His words “death is a part of life and we must make life a part of death. Blatant stupidity.

Rep Maloney was demonic in her defense of Clinton and Rep Issa cut her off at the knees which had me applauding. She sat there with her mouth hanging open and her eyes bulging. I LOL.

It seems like the dems are falling more on media reporting than actual fact. They look like the demonic fools they are. They are trying to save Clinton so she can run in 2016.

I watched that sorry dung heap this morning.
He kept saying he respected the Whistleblowers, but in effect he called them liars. Later they brought forth another slice of the same dung Cumming is when they had Eleanor Holmes Norton make her appearance.

Cummings said in so many words that he had already listened to Hillary and knew the truth, it was a waste of his time listening to these fellows. but he respected them. What a fool. Fool?? No Tool.

Natural death is part of the normal cycle of life but no one would say such a thing even upon the passing of an elderly relative.

Murder by jihadi abetted by Obamaccomplicity is anything but.

Elijah Cummings, Major Owen, John Conyers, James Clyburn, Alcee Hastings, Jesse Jackson Jr.....is there a pattern here?

I accused Elijah of having a single digit I.Q. here yesterday. Another FReeper corrected me that it was a lot lower than that. That FReeper was right. It’s morons like Cummings who have America falling apart at the seams. To save this country, we are going to have to convince voters that they need to THINK before they vote!

For a person of conscience it is beyond belief because such a person believes in what our Declaration of Independence states as to life. However, people of Cummings ilk do not have common sense and education to understand the general meaning in such a Document.

Yes, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), you are correct that “death is a part of life”. Most people are also aware of the two constants in the known universe: (1) hydrogen gas and (2) human stupidity. Since you don’t qualify as a cloud of hydrogen gas, Rep. Cummings, the default has to be that of a stupid human. I’m shocked. Shocked!

He is just be more honest that most.
