They’re Not Embarrassed

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is one of the Benghazi-Gate mob in the House and on CNN yesterday he openly admitted to voting to cut embassy security:

O’BRIEN: Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?

CHAFFETZ: Absolutely. Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have — think about this — 15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, private army there for President Obama in Baghdad.

These guys don’t even bother to pretend to be consistent any more.

    And where is the Strong Democratic Rebuttal?

    Are they just going to give these guys enough rope…….?

      The Strong Democratic Rebuttal was sitting at home, waiting to be invited onto one of these “liberal media shows.”

    “more than 6,000 contractors, private army there for President Obama..”

    Before 2009 conservatives were contracting all the “security” firms for Iraq we could find while legislatively freeing them of any laws or even basic human codes of conduct.

    Now they are Obama’s private army?

    Translation of Chaffetz: “Hey conservative white people, BOOO!”

      What is this “before 2009″ you speak of? Everyone knows that there was a space-time warp, resulting in no history occurring between 2001 and January 20, 2009.

      And if by any chance something may have happened during that time period, it was Clinton’s fault.

    In the video at the link, Jason Chaffetz says he voted to cut the budget for State Department security because you have to prioritize, then denies he and the Rs in Congress bear any responsibility for what happened at the mission in Benghazi because you have to prioritize.

    I get the distinct feeling Jason Chaffetz just isn’t very bright.

      Of course he’s not very bright; he’s a Republican. They make up for it by being brazen.

        Trivially true. What I meant was that even by the standards of Rs, Jason Chaffetz is a bit dim.

    Jason Chaffetz: “I WANNA HAVE MY CAKE AND EAT IT TOO! AND IF YOU DON’T LET ME DO ANY OF THESE THINGS, THEN YOU’RE A GODLESS LIBERAL NAZI ISLAMIC SOCIALIST WHO HATES AMERICA, FREEDOM, AND ANYTHING ELSE I CAN’T THINK OF AT THE MOMENT BUT IF YOU TRAITORS GIVE ME A SECOND I’M SURE I CAN COME UP WITH SOMETHING I CAN HURL AT YOUR WAY!!!”
