Elijah Cummings Is The Dems Benghazi Warrior Or Something
It’s actually rare that an article really ticks me off: I expect bad behavior and moonbattery from Progressives. This, though, is disgusting
He’s the man who helped bring you Sandra Fluke.
Rep. Elijah Cummings is the Democrats’ top guy on the new Benghazi select committee, but fighting Republican-driven scandals is old hat to the pugnacious Maryland lawmaker.
Cummings understands the twists and turns of the Benghazi controversy just as well as many Republicans. For three years, he has served as Rep. Darrell Issa’s chief sparring partner on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, one of the panels where the scandal first caught fire.
The former prosecutor, who speaks in a booming baritone and is from a safe Baltimore-based seat, has earned a reputation among Democrats for besting Issa on a number of Obama administration controversies ranging from Benghazi, to the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups, to Fast and Furious.
Cummings’ work has made him a champion to the left – where he’s called in noted witnesses like Fluke to testify – and a respected foe to some on the right. So while Democrats have called Benghazi nothing more than a political game, by picking Cummings, they’re showing they still plan to play.
So, let me get this straight: he’s being lauded for doing all he can to block investigations into government wrongdoing, to stop those investigations, to minimizing those investigations. Fast and Furious saw several American federal law enforcement officers murdered by those guns, as well as the hundreds of Mexican citizens murdered and wounded by them (so far). The IRS illegally targeted citizens. Then, we get to Benghazi: you know who were real warriors? Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty, who put their lives on the line, and gave them.
So, while Cummings is “giving us Sandra Fluke” and doing all he can to block getting to the truth about Benghazi, comfortably ensconced in his Washington, D.C. area home, making lots of money and living the high life thanks to his cushy “job” as a federally elected official (and forgetting his oath of office in service to Progressive politics), real warriors gave their lives in service to their country.
