According to the Associated Press (AP) Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain are continuing to whine about wanting answers from the Obama administration over Benghazi and are threatening to oppose (yet again) the administration’s choice for another cabinet level appointment, this time it’s the new CIA director.
Graham mewed during CBS “Face the Nation”, he and his buddy, “are hell-bent on making sure the American people understand this debacle called Benghazi.” He also said wants to understand what happened in September at the U.S. consulate in Libya that left four Americans dead.
Perhaps the Senators should have been attending security briefings on Benghazi in November where everything was discussed instead of holding a press conference complaining about not receiving all the information on the attack? Just a thought.
McCain says he also wants answers about policies on torture and the Arizona senator says he deserves answers.Poor Senator McCain, perhaps in a more lucid moment he’ll remember President Bush is no longer in charge; but then again he was also heard saying, “I also want answers on who took the Strawberries, and, by-the-way, I like cheese.”
90,000 Americans die each year in hospitals due to medical error or lethal infection – one every six minutes
54,500 Americans die each year from accidents in the home – one every 10 minutes
46,800 Americans die each year from motor vehicle accident – one every 11 minutes
40,000 Americans die each year from accidental poisoning – one every 13 minutes
22,600 Americans die every year from falls – one every 23 minutes
18,300 Americans are murdered each year – one every 29 minutes
10,300 Americans die each year in drunk driving accidents – one every 28 minutes
3,400 Americans die each year from drowning – nine every day
4 Americans killed by terrorists in Libya warrants a Congressional investigation?
The Republican Tea Party (GOTP) has determined since it can’t beat the President in an election it’ll impeach him and drive him out of office. Presumably the new impeachable offense is the terrorist attack against our Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Of course the biggest problem with this latest nefarious plan in a long list of nefarious plans by the uber-right is first, the President would have to commit a crime, and second while the House may impeach a President, it’s the United States Senate which would actually try him and which has the power to thus remove him from office. Good luck with that plan.
It’s time for the GOTP to quit whining, grow up and get down to business fixing the nation’s economy and getting Americans back to work.
