Hearing The Hearings

Much can and has been said about the hearings over the past two days. It makes one wonder at the value of Congressional hearings. Ms. Clinton did little other than build a fire wall for the President and at the same time cleanse herself of guilt regarding Benghazi. Some reports, absent multiple sources, have it that the Senate Committee and Hill’s folks agreed on questions in advance.

Mrs. Clinton did in person what she has done in her absence, stonewall: ‘hey I ordered a review, what more do you want!” Predictably, Secretary Clinton and Democrats in the Senate attempted to blame Republicans for funding shortfalls despite any number of items in more secure diplomatic settings (London and Paris) that are essentially meaningless when compared to the four lives lost.

The Secretary did highlight a valid point, the absence of financial transfer authority to move money around within her budget. Constraints are intended to blunt the ability of a Secretary to override the will of the Congressional funding authorities. There should be space in the middle to allow for emergency funding changes.

However, that said, there was space for the Secretary to do any number of things she did not do: go the President for emergency authorizations by way of an Executive Order; after all he loves those things. Go to Congress for temporary authorization to transfer funds or, just make a quiet deal with the appropriate Committee leadership and get it done citing national security. If you choose to judge The Secretary on what she could have done as opposed to what she did do, she is guilty of an abysmal leadership failure. Mrs. Clinton is a fabulous bureaucrat; she’s a sad example of a leader who holds lives in her hands.

Senator Kerry calls for ‘Economic Patriotism’ during his confirmation hearing; he who hid his boat in Newport to avoid taxes. He, whose $200 million fortune, resides in a ‘family trust’. The singular reason for a family trust is to avoid taxes.

The hearings of the past two days demonstrate a number of things. If you expect actual questions, don’t hold your breath, speeches by members dominate the proceedings. It you expect answers to real questions you will be sadly disappointed. If you expect a majority of the committee members to actually prepare and do their homework, I have a bridge for sale.

If you expect Republicans to actually get organized for a hearing, oh say along the lines of splitting up questions so that there is a recognizable flow and logic to them, well, have a seat; not happening. Republicans, with some notable exceptions, still appear to be wandering around with a flashlight attempting to find their own asses.

    I believe it was Bill who recently reminded us that Mrs.Clinton conveniently “LOST” ROSE LAW FIRM FILES IN HER WHITE HOUSE BEDROOM CLOSET while her husband was president.

  • Bill Hedges

    YES…

    Cooperation in impeachment process was not paramount for either Clinton. Should also be noted she was IN CHARGE OF THEIR health plan AND NOTED for her extreme, over-budget even by D.C. standards. She attempted to lead a Congressional hearing. Breakage of the SUNSHINE ACT…

    And many a witness to testify during impeachment process left the Country to avoid…

  • Bob

    We can expect more embassies to fall now that the current administration in enacting this policy of women into combat role.The part that isn’t surprising is that the administration is putting their entire agenda on the fast track without even running it past a Congressional committee.within the past three weeks they attempt to take guns out of the hands of responsible civilians and weakening the military.The president feels he has a mandate and the republicans don’t want to make “Waves”(no pun intended)or as their leadership(?)is warning “Don’t say anything stupid”.Secretary Panetta is now signing off on his own executive orders.

    When will the left understand the military isn’t a social experiment that won’t affect the security of our nation.The below article is from the “Marine Times” where they tried to put two women through combat training and both washed out.

  • Bob

    People who think I’m to harsh in my comments of earlier today I ask you to think of this.

    If the policy of putting women in combat was going to be based on gender neutrality along physical standards I wouldn’t have a problem with it.However it will be put to America under the guise of “equal rights”. Equal rights with special dispensation just as Obamacare was and affirmitive action was.It will be based on politics and emotion and not common sense just as everything else the left does.

    In addition ask yourself if they initiate this policy won’t they include our daughters if a draft ever comes back? Then you can also expect to hear the Secretary of State testifying “What difference does it make?” when your daughter gets killed in a botched mission by politicians.

    When Washington is willing to support the violence coming out of Hollywood for campaign contributions they start believing Demi Moore can become a member of the Special Forces.

  • Bob

    THERE’S NO HEARINGS NECESSARY !The administration feels it’s our constitutional rights that caused the riots.But don’t worry the administration has the ONLY PERSON RESPONSIBLE DOING JAIL TIME WHICH WOULD BE THE AUTHOR OF THAT VIDEO.

    It’s always the Constitution that gets in their way.

  • Bob

    Below is a link to the Colbert show concerning the Benghazi hearings entitled “Benghazi Hearings Proved Congressional Republicans Suck at Their Job”. Or as he put it “Is there anything republicans can do to stop Hillary in 2016?”…..funny stuff!

    http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/01/colbert-benghazi-hearings.php?ref=fpnewsfeed

  • Bill Hedges

    Bob wrote link “Proved Congressional Republicans Suck at Their Job”. Why don’t you quote “proved”. Is one “Madam Secretary” ??? That was a BIG LAUGH.

    YOU got _ *** jokes *** _ mixed up with ___ *** “PROVED” *** ___.

    Saying “thank-you Madam Secretary” is funny ? Is common practice ON THE HILL. Like saying Mr. PRESIDENT.

    The guy is paid to be funny. Enjoy Bob.
    __

    I call THIS funny from “Messaging” article THEN:

    Bob has a GREAT IMAGINATION in his “Bob Jan 26th, 2013 at 4:17 pm” comment. Bob should go to work on Steve Allen Show tomorrow. Same for “Bob Jan 26th, 2013 at 10:49 am”.

    Ignoring your own link points and making stuff up WHILE USING tidbit FACTS can be hilarious funny but NOT ACCUATE. Why you used NO QUOTES from link to back your comics…

  • Bob

    Satire has to have a thread of truth running through it in order to resonate AND THIS HAD THE WHOLE CLOTH RUNNING THROUGH IT.

    The “PROOF” is that they waited for FOUR MONTHS to get Secretary Clinton on the witness stand and “hold her feet to a burning car” and they come away with NOTHING more than what they had before.Perhaps it’s all part of the republican parties “NEW AGENDA” on how to score points with the American public by “NOT SAYING ANYTHING STUPID” I don’t know.But it is painfully obvious to conservative newsmen and America that all they did was “making speeches”(Charles Krauthammer) and “they blew it” (Brett Hume).

    republicans came across as weak and afraid of Secretary Clinton and can cross off these hearings as any proof of her foreign policy failure come the 2016 elections.

  • Bob

    A Washington Post/ABC News poll taken right before the Benghazi hearings has Secretary Clintons popularity at a high nation wide.She was pulling 91% Democrats,65% Independents and 37% republicans with overall Americans approval at 67%.I can’t see anything resulting from the hearings that would affect these numbers.Below is the article entitled “Hillary Clinton Reaches New Heights of Political Popularity”.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/01/23/record-high-for-hillary-clinton-as-she-faces-little-regarded-congress/

  • Bill Hedges

    1. Bob wrote “Satire has to have a thread of truth running through it in order to resonate AND THIS HAD THE WHOLE CLOTH RUNNING THROUGH IT.”

    No argument that “thread of truth running through”. But YOU ARE re-writing history NOW. FIRST you wrote “Proved Congressional Republicans Suck at Their Job”

    I quoted you and said PROVE IT_ *** “Proved Congressional Republicans Suck at Their Job” ***

    2. Bob wrote “The “PROOF” is that they waited for FOUR MONTHS to get Secretary Clinton on the witness stand and “hold her feet to a burning car” and they come away with NOTHING more than what they had before”

    And they didn’t impeach, SUCESSFULLY, Bill C. either. Heath problem DID POSTPONE HER attending. Purpose of committee TO SEARCH out the answers. DID Congress investigate cause of recession and WAS ANY FROM CONGRESS now in prison ??? A great movie shows the BAD PERSON dismembered BY TRUTH and head fallen walking out in disgrace. Then buma would be home in IL running around with Bill Aryers & Rev, Wright.

    “LIFE IS NOT A BOX OF CHOCOLATES”. Come BACK to REAL WORLD.

    3. Bob wrote “Perhaps it’s all part of the republican parties “NEW AGENDA” on how to score points with the American public by “NOT SAYING ANYTHING STUPID”

    You write “stupid” all the time BUT you ignore YOUR WRONGS. In Congressional hearing IS public and taped. demo can GET AWAY with wrong many times. Republican ONLY on occasion.

    If DNA existed, as it does now, 99.99 % O.J. would have been found guilty. THE GLOVE in court INJURED the case severely. BUT BUT BUT, you condemn Republicans for “NOT SAYING ANYTHING STUPID”.

    You MADE UP what did/would come out of Nate’s mouth. HOW DID that work out FOR YOU ?

    Remember my COMMENT you WON’T ANSWER because you won’t waste your TIME RESPONDING to me:

    Have NO IDEA WHAT YOU are talking about:

    “Sort of akin to Hitler making a report on where the holocaust went wrong don’t you think?”

    Inflame your sentence with “Hitler ?” What “holocaust” ? Win 54 seats IN HOUSE IN 2010, but loss a mere 8 in Presidential election. IF buma skirt were SO LONG *** more *** seats should have been loss in House. Obvious voters picked & choice their candidates. Influx of voters, like more college students & blacks, were *** buma fans *** BUT not necessarily other demos…

    Just like ANY COMPANY Republican Party SHOULD put feelers out to improve THEIR PRODUCT. IMAGINE that is how our chairman did it in WI.

    Bob wrote:

    “By my count there have been at least seven budget/debt battles over the past two years in which republicans have either deferred,punted or caved.While they offer excuses from shrinking from the battle at hand they always emphatically promise to fight the next one.”

    President CAN AND HAS come up with a budget. Voted DOWN by both sides. DEMO SENATE, is suppose to, come up with budget in OCT. ___ Failure TO DO ___. HOUSE could pass 1,000,000 bills. Where are all the ones PASSED ??? WIPE the dust off and SEE.

    SO tell me, what should Republicans do ? You say they “deferred,punted or caved”. Should they JUST SAY NO. NO BUDGET ? GO into default ? Republicans & Bush WERE COMPLETELY CORRECT that regulations WERE NEEDED to lessen recession seen on the horizon. TELL ME, WHO got blamed for recession ??? Barney Frank and near all demos said NO PROBLEM.

    I’ll pull a House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) & many, many other Republicans newest try to get THE VOTES needed to lift American’s blight ON YOU. Stalemate is getting us NOWHERE. YOU call it “deferred,punted or caved”.

    ********** ********** **********

    HOW BOB ARE YOU GOING TO GET THE VOTES TO clean up this mess ??? Stand by your guns with NO COMPROMISE ? No “deferred,punted or caved”… YOU GOING TO PREY COME ELECTION WE WILL CONTROL BOTH HOUSES ? Can we wait ???

    That terrible, terrible man who cheated on his wife, Newt, closed down government TWICE for short time. He was unfairly involved in Clinton’s impeachment. Clinton NOT HE who balanced budget and DID all the other good deeds. GREAT GUY was Bill C.. Newt’s THE BAD GUY. Who who who would GET BLAMED if WE SHUT DOWN government ? The longer SHUT DOWN the better for dems.

    SO BOB, solve the problem. Can e-mail solution to Republican Party Headquarters. THEY are asking for HELP… DON’T YOU “deferred,punted or caved” or IGNORE…

    4. “(Charles Krauthammer) and “they blew it” (Brett Hume).”

    AM I the FOOL ? GIVE quotes & links. You are wrong SO OFTEN they may have written/discussed about Rubber Ducky in someone’s bath. Want the quotes to ***an·a·lyze *** . ON MY OWN not by you…

    5. Bob wrote “republicans came across as weak and afraid of Secretary Clinton and can cross off these hearings as any proof of her foreign policy failure come the 2016 elections”

    STILL WAITING for poof OF THAT. You said your COMIC link “PROVED” ALL THAT IT “PROVED”. Now you *** renege *** on THAT.

  • Bob

    WHAT ?….Heads rolling,O.J ,Bill Clintons impeachment,Bill Ayers and Rev.Wright ?????

    SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE THE ONE NEEDING TO COME BACK TO THE REAL WORLD HERE.Then you wonder why I never want to answer your ramblings

  • Bill Hedges

    Below is an article from Fox News entitled “West Continues To Drift Into Democratic Column”. It goes on to explain that due to transplants from tax ravaged California, Nevada is becoming the next California and Arizona is becoming the next Nevada.Throw in an alienated immigrant population and the demographics of western states are changing.

  • Bill Hedges

    In Bob’s link and as I have been saying:

    “She argued that Democrats’ success in the region is overstated and noted that, outside of California, Republicans in 2012 only lost one Western congressional seat. As an example of how Republicans can succeed, she cited New Mexico, where the party picked up seats in the state Legislature despite the Obama wave.”

    If liberals IN GOOD STANDING are leaving California HOW LONG UNTIL CA IS LEANING Republican. Either by less liberals and/or liberals turning Republica. Same for liberals leaving…

  • Bill Hedges

    Where are the numbers in Bob’s link to support demos. All the numbers support Republicans. Article is pushing a demo FAIRY TALE BY THE NUMBERS SUPPLIED…

  • Bob

    She would be who that you are refering to? The qoute you give is from a Nicole McCleskey and she is a GOP pollster based in New Mexico hardly an unbiased source.

    If you would have continued with your quote that you so conviently cut off she had more to say.”But McClesky acknowledged that New Mexico republicans were helped by national GOP basiclly giving up on the Presidential race in the state.GOP Presidential nominee MITT ROMNEY DID NOT CONTEST THE STATE MINIMIZING THE DAMAGE OF A DIVISIVE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.”

    When it comes to new demographics my home state of Virginia is experiencing similiar situation.The northern portion is now heavily liberal and in the past few elections they have put out such overwhelming number of votes it wins elections and carries the state in national elections to the blue side.

    Now you will note the title of the article says “DRIFT” not taken over or dominated SO IT IS SUGGESTING A PATTERN and any numbers would be PREMATURE AT THIS TIME.

  • Bill Hedges

    Bob wrote “Nicole McCleskey and she is a GOP pollster based in New Mexico hardly an unbiased source”. Same for demo’s in article. AT least SHE HAD NUMBERS TO SUPPORT HER unlike the demos.

  • Bob

    The state of California has been leaning left as far back as I can remember.LMAO Sure I guess the state could empty out of it’s liberals and turn republican if you believe in fairy tales but then that would mean they had to have gone somewhere else doesn’t it? Hmmm then that means there might be some trugh to this suggested pattern.

    Here is what the president thinks of the one way street called “COMPROMISE”

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/01/27/Obama-threatens-fox-news-limbaugh

  • Bill Hedges

    Well Republicans only gave him limited window for raising debt ceiling WITH CONDITIONS.

    THAT’S COMPROMISE.

    BUMA has given in before. Agreeing to tax cut extension FOR RICH. ALL of Bush’s tax cuts…

  • Bill Hedges

    “Debt ceiling”. Republican plan to break budget stalemate SEEMS TO have WORKED…

    “The Labor report comes as Republicans announced earlier this week plans to raise the nation’s $16.4 trillion debt ceiling. The plan, which passed the House on Wednesday, will extend the nation’s debt ceiling for three months, providing Capitol Hill lawmakers a chance to craft a long-term budget plan that many Democrats have opposed. The debt ceiling increase was widely seen as a major obstacle for President Obama’s economic team, which had called on lawmakers to increase the nation’s borrowing limit in an effort to avoid plunging the nation back into recession.”

    “Budget battle”

    “Meanwhile, Senate Democrats have agreed to pass a budget plan – something they have not done the previous three years. While the plan will not face a vote in the House, the debate over the nation’s economic future now largely rests with the upcoming battle over the budget. Top Republicans have called for implementing tough spending cuts, a move President Obama has staunchly opposed. Top Democrats have pointed to the economic recession as the main cause of the deficit, calling instead for economic stimulus packages that can induce consumer spending.”

    Congress can stay gridlock as the dark clouds *** en·com·pass *** our nation. Preparing to shower economic firestorm on our nation with its own winds sustaining themselves. The old days SEEM NEAR forgotten. When House passes a bill and Senate either accepts or rejects. If rejected, they re-write & send back to House. That is healthiest compromise. Demo Senate no longer comes up with budget. THIR JOB.

    For the MOST PART demos don’t play that game now. Bob is in the corner sulking, calling FOUL, DIRTY NAMES for Republicans, name marked with little “r”. Compromise NO OPTION for Bob. Asked numerous times, he has no solution to say here.

    Well Republicans came up with a new plan with good number agreeing. Lost for long time, PROGRESS is being spoke by DEMOS. A limited increase in national debt has lead to UNKNOWN BEFORE talk of long term budget addressing DEBT.

    There is no assurance of success. But the skies are clearing today from where they were before…

    THIER JOB

  • Bill Hedges

    * NEED, for another way, IS MOTHER OF INVENTION *

    “No budget, no pay may force Senate to do its job”

    01/29/2013

    “House Republicans backed off their reckless idea of tying an increase in the federal debt limit to spending cuts and, in doing so, came up with a pretty good other idea: They want to cut off the paychecks in either chamber if it fails to approve a budget this year.”

    “The House, controlled by Republicans, has passed budgets in each of the past two years. The Senate, controlled by Democrats, has failed to pass a budget in nearly four years.”

    W”e like this idea, just as we liked the idea of withholding paychecks from New York State legislators when they failed to adopt a budget by the April 1 deadline. One fundamental task of legislators is to approve a budget, and to do it on time. When they refuse to meet that obligation, they should be penalized.”

    “That’s far better than penalizing taxpayers, which is what Republicans were prepared to do by linking an increase in the debt limit to reductions in spending. Although there is an apparent connection between spending and debt, this linkage is false. Republicans were threatening to not repay debts they had helped to create, threatening the economy, the country’s credit rating and its reputation as a reliable partner.”

    http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130129/OPINION/130129088/1074

    NOT fond of this link BUT it possible points to why, as Bob has said, Republicans in Congress have VERY LOW approval numbers. Demos would smack our faces saying something to the effect “That’s far better than penalizing taxpayers, which is what Republicans were prepared to do by linking an increase in the debt limit to reductions in spending”. TRUE or NOT.

    “Congressional republicans HAVE A GANG PROBLEM”The article below lays out how the “Gang of Six” republicans thought they could “COMPROMISE’ with President Obama during a battle back in 2011.The President realized he was sitting in the “cat bird seat” and reneged on the deal.This past week Senate republicans “Gang of Eight”thought they had a “COMPROMISE” sewed up with bi-partisan Democrats on immigration……the President realized he could get more and killed the deal.

    WHEN ARE THE republicans GOING TO REALIZE THAT THEIR PLAN ISN’T STRATEGY BUT SURRENDER AND IT’S NOT COMPROMISE BUT CAPITULATION!

  • Bob

    My article talks of the history the republicans have of getting their butt handed to them by the left starting with 2005 and ends with this past week with the “Gang of Eight”.

    In addition America has heard the left avoid any debate on spending cuts and say “pass Obamacare first and we will talk about what is in it later”.

    The president knows he is sitting pretty after the election and is in the process of fast tracking legislation through including gun control and immigration.Meanwhile the republicans warn their people in Congress “Shhhh don’t say anything stupid”.

    One reason I do not return NASTY FIRE to Bob was DD MAO. Although I hit REPORT BUTTON, COMPLAINED, even sent Nate a e-mail. All went by the wayside. Then I let loose IN KIND. Both of us got blamed with none of my WARNINGS meaning anything.

    Therefore the list. After EACH REMARK by Bob I print THIS GROWING LIST with no FIRE BACK:

    1. “Messaging Bob Jan 22nd, 2013 at 6:55 pm”

    Bob is ANOTHER DD Mao if not DD Mao. Name calling is his style when in trouble:

    It’s not a secret that the republican leadership doesn’t have a clue as to what to do and won’t back party members.Below is a link to an article I spoke about earlier on the 27th of January 2013 @ 6:13PM.It’s entitled “West Continues to Drift into Democrats Column”.In it New Mexico based GOP pollster Nicole McClesky states “New Mexico republicans were helped by the national GOP basically giving up on the presidential race in the state.GOP nominee Mitt Romney did not contest the state minimizing the damage of a divisive presidential campaign.”

    Bob wrote “Nicole McCleskey and she is a GOP pollster based in New Mexico hardly an unbiased source”. Same for demo’s in article. AT least SHE HAD NUMBERS TO SUPPORT HER unlike the demos.

    Where are the numbers in Bob’s link to support demos. All the numbers support Republicans. Article is pushing a demo FAIRY TALE BY THE NUMBERS SUPPLIED

    “PREMATURE”. When was book written ? Was it 2002 ? Article is FAIRY TALE. YOU CAN BELIEVE I throw article in mud…

  • Bob

    The point of my 11:37PM post was the republicans in New Mexico were abandoned by the national party and realize it.

    As far as your answer in your 27th January @ 10:02PM post I answered you that same night @11:48PM I said”Sure I suppose California could empty out of all liberals if you believe in fairy tales but that would mean they had to go somewhere else doesn’t it?Hmmmm then there might be some truth to the article.”

  • Bob

    Your repeating yourself and refering back to articles we discussed already trying to avoid the article in my 10:26PM post.Why does the republicans fold like a cheap tent every time they get into negotiations?

    You not only enjoy showing how inept the gop is but yourself but avoiding answering and childishly listing my replies ON THREE DIFFERENT THREADS !

  • Bill Hedges

    No numbers in your article to support demo. Support Republicans YES.

    lEAVING Ca could be sign of lost faith in liberalism. Just ONE SEAT won for demos in surrounding States. Sign loss in faith of democrat party.

    “West Continues to Drift into Democrats Column” IS TITLE. Book was written in 2002. “Drift” ? Slow boat to MOON IF THAT…

    WHY DOES THE republicans FOLD LIKE A CHEAP TENT EVERYTIME THEY GET INTO NEGOTIATIONS?
