On It's Second Anniversary Of Disgraceful Waste, Do Hillary Clinton Supporters Know Patrick Murphy Voted To Establish The Benghazi Committee?


2 of Congress' biggest idiots give conservatism a bad name-- Gowdy and Murphy

Conservatives always try to portray themselves-- falsely-- as serious stewards of the pubic purse. One of the biggest boondoggles in recent times, the Benghazi Committee, was authorized by the votes of 225 conservative Republicans and 7 of the most conservative Democrats to serve in Congress in the last 5 decades. Conceived as a hyper-partisan witch-hunt to damage the reputation of Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election, every single Republican voted for it. Of the 7 right-wing Democrats who went along, 3-- Arizona Blue Dog Ron Barber, Georgia Blue Dog John Barrow and West Virginia Blue Dog Nick Rahall-- were immediately defeated by their constituents and one-- North Carolina Blue Dog Mike McIntyre, seeing he had no chance at reelection-- quickly announced his retirement. 3 of the treacherous Democrats are still serving in Congress, still working against the interests of their own party and against the interests of the working families in their own districts:
Patrick Murphy (New Dem-FL)
Collin Peterson (Blue Dog-MN)
Kyrsten Sinema (Blue Dog-AZ)
Sinema is being groomed by K Street whore Steny Hoyer for a congressional leadership position. The DCCC shores up the unpopular Peterson with massive campaign spending, $4 million in 2014 along. And Murphy is being pushed for an open Florida Senate seat by Chuck Schumer and the Wall Street banksters who like the cut of his jib. And people wonder why there is so little party discipline?

Anyway, yesterday was the second anniversary of the establishment of the Benghazi Committee and these conservatives have wasted at least twenty million tax pay dollars on their partisan endeavor, a partisan endeavor that may have made brainwashed Hate Talk Radio and Fox News fans surer than ever that Hillary Clinton is the greater-of-two-evils in any race against any Republican, but, if anything, it has only made normal people more sympathetic to what she's forced by deranged right-wing extremists to go through.

At best, a fishing expedition that led nowhere near any wrong-doing involving Benghazi, the Committee was a big-- and costly-- waste of time and effort that has backfired on many of the conservatives-- remember how it put a giant boulder in Kevin McCarthy's career track, for example and has made Trey Gowdy's name into a stand-up comedy punch line-- who backed it. Even Trump made fun of Gowdy as a loser:

One more thing about Murphy-- who rarely gets asked by the paid off Florida press about the Benghazi Committee vote, was embarrassed when the Tampa Bay Times finally did. The Times reported that Murphy's campaign spokesman denied Murphy was trying to help the Republicans embarrass Hillary with his vote to authorize the Benghazi committee. Joshua Karp: "When Patrick voted for the Benghazi committee, he was 100 percent confident it would vindicate Hillary Clinton, and he warned the committee must not be 'used as a way to politicize this tragedy and the deaths of four Americans.'" If Murphy really imagined the Benghazi committee was going to vindicate Hillary, he's the only Democrat who did-- and he didn't pay attention to the warnings of the House Democratic leadership.

Or maybe he's the stupidest person in Congress, which also explains why Wall Street has been spending so much money to help get him in his primary against Alan Grayson. If you'd like to help Grayson win the Democratic Senate nomination, by the way, just click on the thermometer:
