Trey Gowdy - '"Let McCain Do It."

Trey Gowdy - '"Let McCain Do It."

Now this is just pathetic

Some of you turned Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) into the hero of the day because of his Benghazi investigation. He could do no wrong. What happens when you build a cult of personalty around any politician is then they can go BOHICA on you.

On Fox News yesterday, Gowdy was asked about President Obama’s plan. He said the President had no authority.

Asked again by Fox News’s Bill Hemmer, Gowdy was insistent the President could not do what he did and had to treat congress as a co-equal branch of government.

So, Hemmer asked Gowdy who he’d stop the President. Gowdy’s answer? He wants to let Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) handle it by tying up unrelated Presidential nominations in the Senate.

Yeah. Mind you, the Senate Republicans are not going to restore the filibuster on nominations, so that’s now impossible if one of the squishes won’t go along.

There you have it. The great white hope of Benghazi, now that he thinks conservatives are in his pocket, will stand with the Speaker, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Barack Obama against the American public on amnesty.

He wants Sen. John McCain to stop Obama.

I have no doubt, now being exposed, Gowdy will claim he is personally going to oppose the continuing resolution. But he’s going to support the rule, which will enable Boehner and Pelosi to get it passed without Gowdy. [RED STATE]

I hadn't heard that Senate Republicans won't restore the filibuster on nominations that Harry Reid did away with.  What's your argument either way? First, consider this.

Nope, he had his head in Teddy Kennedy's lap, voted stupidly with Democrats and has basically been AWOL from both American and Conservative values for his entire career. He was a lousy Naval Officer and has become the epitome of Career Politicians that have been on the job too long.

So we Republicans have gotten the Senate back from Dirty Harry Reid and his toadies. And a few more seats in the House of Non-Representatives. Big f**king deal! Nothing is going to change at all, at all. Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are just Democrats in Republican clothing, bowing and scraping to every petty whim of The Ayatollah's. One has to wonder though: Are the prayer rugs in the Oval Office, the Senate and the House all properly facing toward Mecca? I'd bet that they are.

Note well, Scottiebill, that the Democrats didn't get Hilliarycare/Obamacare until they had over two thirds of the Senate, and similar numbers in the House. And the Presidency, and the Permanent Government, and the Press. Big changes require big numbers, and we don't have them yet. Fight for more Republicans, as opposed to doing the Democrat's work for them, by spreading despair.....

I vote Republican because there's no place on the ballot where I can vote P*ssed-off Crabby Old F*rt. Nobody gets my vote until they can convince me that they are almost as Crazy Right-wing Extremist as I am, and if, by the end of their first term they start to go all marshmallow "can't we all just get along," they NEVER get a second vote from me. My version of "term limits."

John McCain has NEVER received a second vote from me, not even for President. I voted for Palin for President! McCain can go (fill in the blank here,) himself!

In my mind, there are only two possible reasons for Gowdy's comment:

- He's trying to shame McCain, and other senior Senate Republicans to do their job.

- McCain has a photo of Gowdy having sex with barnyard animals; maybe a chicken.

The prayer rugs in the House and Senate are pointed toward the Oval Office, the prayer rug in the Oval Office is the one pointed toward Mecca.

That people actually think there is a difference of some kind between congressional republicans and democrats is kind of interesting.

I stand corrected, Geo. Thanks.
