Lowest of the Low - Disgusting Democrat U.S. Reps Stage Walkout as Ben Ghazi Victims' Families Begin to Testify

I've been around long enough, and have observed enough craven conduct by the Political Class to be quite jaded at this point in my life. Little surprises me, even less - sadly - shocks me, but this story describes parliamentarian conduct that goes far beyond the pale of civilized norms. 

From Town Hall, here it is:

Spitting on Their Graves: Democrats Leave Benghazi Hearing Before Testimony From Families of Victims

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

The far side of the room, shown empty in the photo, belongs to the Democrats. The only Democrats who stayed were Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier.

 One commenter at the Town Hall website, was kind enough to list the names of the ungrateful sleazebags who fled the hearing. These people do not deserve the offices they hold. Here's the list: 

Carolyn Maloney
Danny Davis
Eleanor Holmes Norton
Gerald E. Connolly
Jim Cooper
John Tierney
Mark Pocan
Matt Cartwright
Michelle Lujan Grisham
Peter Welch
Stephen Lynch
Steven Horsford
Tammy Duckworth 
Tony Cardenas
William Lacy Clay


  1. They're Democrats. The word for me is synonymous with 'scum'. I expect no different behavior from them.


  2. The grief of parents who lost children in the service of their country is not a partisan thing. Their loss, and their inconceivable contribution to our freedom, safety and welfare cannot be overstated, and it is not a conservative or liberal loss. To turn away and walk out before such a testimony is unforgivable. It is nothing less than spitting on the graves of those who died to give these pumped up, cowardly, fat-cat leeches their high positions and their limousines and their state dinners and inaugural balls.

    They should be ashamed.

    And anyone who continues to vote for them should be equally ashamed, for those voters are abusing the privilege that far better men have died to ensure.


    1. Paige: Thanks for your eloquent comment.

      As you note,[t]hey should be ashamed. but alas, they won't be because, as malignant narcissists, they are incapable of that emotion.
