    Boehner: I'm ready to 'reappoint' members to special Benghazi panel in new Congress

    Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday evening announced that he is reappointing Republican Trey Gowdy of South Carolina to head the Select Committee on Benghazi next Congress.

    The problem, however, is that by doing so, Boehner named a chairman to a panel that does not yet exist. Because the Benghazi committee is select and not permanent, the House will have to vote again to re-create it when Congress returns for a new session in January.
    What do you do if a Republican-led committee clears the administration of wrongdoing in Benghazi? You create another Benghazi committee. You keep creating those committees until you get the results you want. And, if you never get the results you want, you keep this issue on top of other issues like the economy. Jeez!! Talk about Congress "going off the rails on a crazy train" (Thanx, Ozzy).

    Same old, same old, Dan. After that we will see "repeal of Obamacare" for how many times now? Eventually it will get around to "impeachment".

    Yep. A good ole fashion working Congress alright.

    All of that junk will not result with anything substantial worth discussing in the end. Think of all the problems this country faces each day that is NOT being resolved.

    Didn't people call this already? 6 ****ing investigations and they've found NOTHING and the GOP is still going at it. Were there ever any doubts that they were doing this because of politics?

    It would be nice to have a House of Representatives who weren't so Anti-Obama. It really gets in the way of them getting anything done.

    Sen. Colburn is talking about the immigration EO rather than Benghazi, but it seems to work with any of their so called "scandals"

    Yet perhaps facts are now irrelevant. There was an enlightening moment of candor when Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) visited MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on the morning of Obama’s immigration speech. “The president ought to walk into this a lot more slowly, especially after an election,” Coburn said. “This idea, the rule of law, is really concerning a lot of people where I come from. And whether it’s factual or perceptual, it really doesn’t matter.”
