Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 11, 2014

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) slammed House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for creating a select committee to investigate Benghazi. In an email to supporters Friday, Warren called the committee "shameful" and "no-holds-barred political theater," accusing the GOP of exploiting a tragedy for political gain. The Massachusetts senator wrote that she knows "a little bit about the way [GOP Rep.] Trey Gowdy pursues oversight" -- because in 2011, she "was on the other end of it." Warren said Gowdy lacked basic knowledge of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and was a grand-stander, pushing empty political points rather than conducting a serious investigation. "As a senator, I take oversight seriously because it is powerfully important. But Trey Gowdy gives oversight a bad name," she wrote.

Andrea you can call her names and make fun but you and I both know she is telling the absolute truth about this committee, the most politically motivated nonsense in recent memory. Democrats and independents should take note and realize that if we let these creeps win the Senate this nation will have hell to pay.

Of course she is. The Republican Party is interested in seeing if people can see them as being something worse than their current status, that of psychotic clowns.

Its a peculiar talent to have, being Miserable Human Beings, but if the GOP wants to explore that territory you won't be able to prevent them.

"A committee is a life form with six or more legs and no brain." – Lazarus Long

Behind the political football there may actually be a real point to this, but both parties most likely agree on the presidents actions anyway, so nothing real will be allowed to come of this. i.e. grand standing.

#16 | Posted by Shawn at 2014-05-11 06:12 PM | Reply | Flag:

- grand standing.

Another kind of grandstanding is always publicly complaining but never doing anything about that which one constantly whines.

One might be better off participating in solutions, as in the below link, rather calling people "fasciati" at every opportunity.

The only thing that keeps government honest is one Party digging up dirt on the other. Sadly that is how it works in America. Given the chance politicians in both are corrupt.

So are you... Often!

Now why don't you tell us what Warren lied about, and how it's important to the rest of the world?

Here's another challenge for you, afkabl2. Name one politician, and especially a conservative politician, who's never lied. Until you can come up with one, I think you should stop throwing the term 'liar' around like candy.

These hearings are no more political theater than voting to repeal Obamacare 54 times was. The first vote was political theater. The first Benghazi hearing was theater. After that it just a waste of time.

easy...ted cruz....

as to this warren nonsense that she's not a liar...lets' not leave it to the indian heritage LIE

when she says she's not a socialist, then she proposes this......

"Just days after proposing a massive bailout of indebted students that would subsidize their college loans and forgive some of their financial obligations, far-left Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said she has no idea why people think she is a socialist.

Her bill, the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, would lower the amount of money that students are obligated to repay to the federal government. If enacted, the bill would deprive the federal government of billions of dollars in interest payments owed to its shareholders: the American taxpayers.

It is Warren's belief that students -- who voluntarily signed up for the loans and agreed to pay them back at certain interest rates -- should be let off the hook."

Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a Fox News contributor, suggested this week that focus on nearly 300 kidnapped girls in Nigeria was a "fishy" plot to take attention away from President Barack Obama's "scandals," including the terrorist attacks in Benghazi.

In a Monday column on his website, West opined that concern about the terrorist group Boko Haram, which kidnapped the girls, "right now seems fishy to me."

The burden of proof is on the accuser. You have no proof she lied. She only relied on what she knew and that was her family lore. Much like all of us do.

And she never used it for personal gain. She earned her way.

So what is the point of your continued slander?

It is Warren's belief that students -- who voluntarily signed up for the loans and agreed to pay them back at certain interest rates -- should be let off the hook."

#25 | Posted by afkabl2

I don't see anywhere in the new bill where it will let them "off the hook".

It allows them to refinance their debt at lower rates.

What is wrong with that? And what is wrong with you that you would begrudge them that? Is it because we would pay for it with "millionaire's tax"?

You sir are certainly no millionaire.

Why in the world did students get stuck with a 6.8% interest in the late 2000s to borrow federal student loans when other bank loans, notably mortgages, were issued at half that rate? Refinancing should be allowed.

Keep deflecting back to Bush so we make sure that type of catastrophe NEVER happens again.

Ruined the country, bankrupted it while transferring wealth to the rich.

The people will never forget, just like 911.

That's why there will not be another GOP president until the party stops being led by corrupt evil old white men.

So in other words.....NEVER!

hahahahahahahahah.....

Good grief. Bush had nothing to do with Benghazi. You and your ilk blaming Bush for all the world's ills, does nothing to solve the issues of today. Deflecting to Bush on matters like economics, ok, I'll play. Iraq and Afghanistan, you got an argument there too. But deflecting to Bush with some Pavlovian reponse mechanism on every single issue is ridiculous.
