Hyp­o­crit­i­cal Beng­hazi panel com­plaints

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - DANIEL B. JEFFS Ap­ple Val­ley, Calif.

House Democrats’ com­plaints over their lack of equal rep­re­sen­ta­tion on the Beng­hazi spe­cial com­mit­tee show feck­less­ness. With seven Repub­li­cans and five Democrats, the com­mit­tee is sim­ply a fair rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the per­cent­ages of Repub­li­cans and Democrats in the House. In­deed, Democrats have falsely branded the se­lect com­mit­tee a “witch hunt” and made child­ish threats to ei­ther boy­cott the com­mit­tee or se­lect only one rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Clearly, this is noth­ing but hyp­o­crit­i­cal be­hav­ior, par­tic­u­larly when it was the Demo­crat-con­trolled House and Se­nate that rammed through Oba­macare from be­hind closed doors with no de­bate or Repub­li­can par­tic­i­pa­tion. Of course when it passed, Pres­i­dent Obama’s scheme was quickly signed with his eco­nomic poi­son pen — fol­lowed by the pass­ing and sign­ing of ex­ces­sive fi­nance laws and econ­omy-bust­ing reg­u­la­tions.

Alas, cou­pled with the Democrat­con­trolled Se­nate stop­ping all Repub­li­can leg­is­la­tion, the malfea­sance of the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s Fast and Fu­ri­ous gun­run­ning scan­dal, the IRS’ tar­get­ing of con­ser­va­tive or­ga­ni­za­tions and donors, and Mr. Obama’s var­i­ous en­ergy edicts, there is a clear and present dan­ger to our free­doms and se­cu­rity.

Cer­tainly Cal­i­for­nia is a glar­ing ex­am­ple of the dam­age Demo­crat-dom­i­nated gov­ern­ments can do to our so­ci­ety. The cur­rent govern­ment must be changed in the 2014 and 2016 elec­tions — for Amer­ica’s sur­vival.
