Rep. Pelosi knocks Republicans' 'obsession' with Benghazi attack By Sam Baker - 05/11/13 11:43 AM ET
Congressional Republicans are using their Benghazi investigation as political "subterfuge" to distract from other issues, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Saturday.
Pelosi said it's important to find out what happened in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. But the right is taking it too far, she said in an interview with MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry.
"The obsession that some of my Republican colleagues have in the House doesn't look like it's on the path to really finding a solution, but just to keeping an issue alive," she said.
House Republicans held a day-long hearing this week on the Benghazi attacks, focusing on security at the consulate as well as the way the administration described the attack.
"We certainly have to give the full attention Benghazi deserves, but we cannot let it soak up all of the congressional attention," Pelosi said. "What would be the purpose of that?"
The issue has also dominated conservative media.
"We want to find out what did happen, but then it becomes an issue that is subterfuge: 'Let's talk about Benghazi forever, so we don't have to talk about what the American people want us to talk about,'" Pelosi said. "They want us to talk about jobs, they want us to talk about economic security, economic growth."
Republicans have accused the administration of downplaying the attack, citing initial talking points that described it as a protest over an anti-Islamic YouTube video rather than a coordinated terrorist attack.
Some Republicans have also questioned whether the administration refused requests for additional security in Benghazi.
"Much of what is being said out there by some of my colleagues in Congress is simply not true
it simply isn't true," Pelosi said. "So we have to make sure the public record is clear."
Pelosi is obsessed with reminding US that she has the mental capacity of a garden snail.
Is that cadaver still alive?
Must be close to the truth, I hear rats squealing...
This from the California ditz who is currently “obsessed” with ObamaCare, “gay marriage” and gun control. What a maroon.
Pelosi is the person responsible for the FRAUD of Obama.
She filed THE altered Certificate to make him pRes_ _ential
Pelosi is the key to the fraud.
How could you, in all decency to garden snails, insult them by comparing Pelosi to them? Garden snails are at least one standard deviation smarter than Pelosi is. LOL
Nice spin, Bela, but it’s not gonna fly. You and your admin buddies are up to your armpits in Benghazi quicksand.
Yet, pushing her failed gun control last month had how much to do with jobs?!
Pelosi isn't smart enough to be a good liar. She lies, but she isn't good at it.
Nancy needs to give America a break. She should resign and go home to spend more time with her money.
Apparently even Pelosi’s handlers can’t wake her out of her stupor.
[[Rep. Pelosi knocks Republicans’ ‘obsession’ with Benghazi attack ]]
And of course no republican said “Psssst- Nancyu- have you forgotten abotu your side’s asinine obsession with Sarah PaLIN’s Wardrobe durign hte electorial process? or your sides obssession with Senator Stevens of Alaska, or Marc Sanford, or... on and on it goes-? Don ‘t preach to us abotu obssession!”
Silly Republicans . . . obsessed over national security, competent officials, transparent government, honest leaders, human life . . . you know, the little stuff . . . that’s us!
Attention dimwit Pelosi: One - Democrats were all over Nixon for lying but nobody died as did four brave and abandonded Americans in Benghazi, through incompetence and lying by Democrats; Two - if Bush was president and the same scenario occurred she’s be all over him relentlessly like a rabid pit bull.
"WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?!?!?"
that all you got Pelosi?
your guy can’t be removed, he can only be impeached.
Hey Nanc, try this on;
We have to pass the Articles of Impeachment to find out what’s in them.
Hey, Pigloser......0bamao lied, people died.
Remember THAT cute ditty?
Well, Nancy, I guess you should be happy that it wasn’t one of your children who was murdered by terrorists in Lybia, and then their murder was covered up by a disgusting liar of a president.
Well....excuse the hell out of me!
I am certain that there is an Aggie out there that is sorely puckered up over your post..... lol
Now, Go forth and insult innocent critters no more! LOL!
This Pelosi rat has tied her tail to the SS obammy. No choice but to go down with the ship.
(Here’s a slightly altered talking point/truth.)
Pelosi is actually saying the following:
“The families of the victims (dead and wounded) are obsessed with Benghazi.”
When she hits Republicans, she hits victims’ families at the same time.
There is no escaping it.
“What would be the purpose of that?”....Find out who is incompetent, traitorous or narcisistict?
She is a pure Alinskyite!
Now, that we're at that point, the Rats are insisting that it happened a long time ago, that it makes no difference, and that Republicans are obsessed with old news.
Sorry, but that won't fly this time.
Drip... drip... drip...
...'S SANE PEOPLE CRAZY.
Benghazi - 4 American dead
Iraq - 4,000 American dead
Staying the hell out of these wars - PRICELESS
Who the hell keeps voting for this b*tch? Reminds me of that joke I heard a while back (paraphrasing) where this guy dies and is accidentally sent to hell, and Satan is giving a sermon in the middle of this arena and the usher tells the guy
“Everyone is seated to their level of evil in life..For example, you are in the very last row because you were suppose to be sent to heaven...The row in front of you are all the people who helped Hitler get to power. the row in front of them are the people who helped Stalin and the row in front of them are the ones who helped Mao.”
Then the guy sees at the very first row by the stage all the people sitting there are engulfed in fire and magma and they screaming in agony and terror and the guys asks “So who are those people in the front row?” And the usher says “Those are the people who kept reelecting Nancy Pelosi”
D=What difference does it make?
That’s in Golden gate park I believe, right next to Lincoln way and Martin Luther King jr drive. Freakin’ unreal.
yup...but a three year investigation into plamegate, despite the fact the special prosecutor knew two days into the investigation who revealed that joe plame’s wife was in the CIA, was justified for pelosi and liberals...
The democrat choir is getting fewer and fewer showing up for practice, it’s starting to be realized the harmony has always been bad, and the melody is old and worn out.
Why are her inane mutterings even considered news?
Please explain to me how one can insult Pelosi?
For the life of me, I can’t think of anything that would not come across as a compliment.
Who did Pelosi call for an interview—Melissa Harris-Perry, who said “our children are not our private property.”
Well I guess that is the difference between the two of us.
You give her credit for an IQ of ZERO.
I give her credit for an IQ of ONE.
In that difference, an insult is theoretically possible.
I was a young working man during Watergate. Nobody called that an “obsession”, but then the Republicans were guilty and the Washington Post led the charge. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, everyone in mainstream media is trying to ignore it. Sure wish these people in the media would wake up and realize we want the truth and the right to hold those in charge accountable for their errors. After all, our future safety might depend on it. Time to be Americans, not global citizens, Republicans or Democrats, and unite to save our future.
What difference does it make ?
Great idea! lol
She needs to retire and take John McCain with her..
