    a Deluded Conspiracy Cult.  My point and goal is making that fact as obvious as possible, not grant them any credibility it all -but instead to rip it apart, seam by seam.

    •  You've done an excellernt analysis and timeline.. (2+ / 0-)

      ..of the facts Vyan. All of which would rip them to shreds.

      Yet none of which will be heard. If there were an equal number of Dems and republicans; equal subpoena power; equal status on who decides who can call to testify; number of witnesses etc., equal everything iow's..maybe.

      But that isn't happening. Nancy Pelosi has made requests of these conditions to no avail.

      What JimP has stated is true advice..

      Do not have Republican conversations.
      ..that we must follow. In this sham, especially so. It's nothing more than a call too foment their RWNJ base into action and a F0X "news" sponsored funding extravaganza leading up to a 2014 6th year midterm GOP blow out dream

      Although, I would love to see Nancy Pelosi ask one question with a time allotted for her to proceed uninterrupted.

       Right in the middle of the whole circus, as agreed upon.
       This would be negotiated beforehand. That Nancy Pelosi could have uninterrupted time to speak. The republicans would have no idea what she would say.

       Nancy Pelosi would present this test of the republicans. A test if not aced (all four Americans who died) would disqualify that republican from the select committee. immediately and irrevocably.

      with a 1 minute time limit on answering

      Ask each and every republican to write down the names of the four killed Americans:

       ♦ Christopher Stevens

       ♦ Sean Glen Doherty

       ♦ Sean Smith

       ♦ Tyrone Woods

      Have each republican, without the help of any aids. staff, ipads, phones. no help or otherwise, sitting alone with a pencil and a piece of paper, write these fallen Americans names down.

      Then, after the republicans fail, which they most certainly will, my guess 75 - 95% failure, the carnival is over.
      Thx Vyan for laying out the facts so well

      I listened very carefully to Krauthammer. What he has done is not really call for an end to this farce, quite the opposite. He wants what this witch-hunt will do for motivating the base but wants it to have a façade of respectability and truth seeking. That can only happen if he has refereed the rules into place, so that whatever goes down will have been "impartial see". We're doing it Charles way.

      So to achieve this he is preemptively is staking out the completely obvious high ground. Something that shouldn't even have to be said.
       He calls for nonpartisanship - obviously; he calls for - just the facts - again high ground; he warns of backfiring - cya move.


    •  I appreciate that, but them's that don't know (0+ / 0-)

      Repubs are ugly by now don't want to know it.

      We will lose by talking their issue and not offering our own. The public is disaffected from both parties in Congress; hence the single digit approval rating, the polls showing 60% and more thinking they ALL should lose office (even their own Reps, who used to be safe in these kinds of polls).

      This topic is inside-the-beltway -- and bullshit is the only word for it -- that hardly anyone but political junkies care about. The voters care that everything's going down the crapper and nobody is offering a way out.

      The most the Dems can get out of following the Republican lead on this is 'a pox on both their houses.'

      No Republican voter is going to vote not-Republican because they've been proven liars. No downward-tumbling youth, poor, middle-class, or senior is going to turn out because the Dems made stunning rebuttals.

      The people are in need; the people's needs do not concern petty infighting among insiders. Dems need to address their needs, or lose, Benghazi or no Benghazi.

        start with Trickle-Down; Deregulation; Privatization; and Free Trade. These are the lies about economics and policy which are actually damaging people, and the nation as a whole.

        Benghazi is side-show. The Four Horsemen of Supply Side just named have proven themselves failures; repudiate it not with words, but by offering people-serving alternatives.
