Republican Party has unmitigated gall


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

When it comes to unmitigated gall, the Republican Party has no equal. Take the current Benghazi hearings, for example. This is nothing but a political charade aimed at the 2014 election and Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential candidacy in 2016.

Remember, this is the party of Dick, “the troll under the bridge,” Cheney and his fellow neocons who drug us into the Iraq war at a huge cost in lives and money. Devious Cheney has never had to answer for the lies and deceit that led us down that tragic primrose path.

And who is leading the Benghazi hearings? None other than Rep. Darrell Issa, of California, who is better known for his earlier crusade to get rid of the postal service. Issa discredited himself before the hearings began when he commented that testimony would disparage Hillary’s reputation.

I think it is a pretty safe bet that she will come out on top against the likes of Issa.
