Shameful: During Libya hearing, Rep. Cummings can’t remember Ambassador Stevens’ name

Disgracefully, oh yes, he did. The House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing on the utter failures of the Obama administration in Libya.

During the hearing, Rep. Cummings (D-Md.) could not even remember the name of our murdered ambassador. Maybe he follows Geraldo Rivera and just knows Ambassador Stevens as that “dead dude.

For shame. Twitter users are rightfully disgusted and outraged.

Of course, President Obama is likely “leading” by example.

Once again, Democrats show their true colors. People, shmeople! They have a campaign to wage and stuff. Remember, forgetting the names of fallen heroes is nothing new to Democrats. Press secretary Carney could not remember Brian Terry’s name.  And neither could Nancy Pelosi.

Disgraceful is nothing new for Rep. Cummings as well. Hey, he’s consistent; Consistently disgraceful

Shame on you.

    The Dems have been doing you know what on his grave since he was murdered-why should not knowing his name be a shock. Cummings got some talking points to protect Obama and Hillary-he’s too dumb to write down a name.

  • mkreider

    This is a sad, sad commentary. Obama and Hillary have blood on their hands. American should pray for the safe return of our deployed troops and for the safety of our diplomatic corps. Obama is a failed president and our country is at great risk.

  • jackay

    Very sad and sick. The thing is, someone else is going to get thrown under the bus, it looks like the Intelligence Community. Hillary and Obama will skate right through. As far as Cummings, I almost typed something nasty and possibly racist so I will behave.

      Thanks for the tip. Here’s my contribution:

      “Ambassador Christopher Stevens.” Or more correctly, “The late Ambassador Christopher Stevens.”

      Three places.

  • dave lewis

    Leave Rep. Cummings alone. I’m sure he steps up to the plate and votes “Present” at the appropriate times. It’s so hard to keep all this stuff straight.

  • http://phillies.com JackD

    I would like to thank Rep. Cummings for reminding us how important our vote will be next month. Maybe before the end of day he or one of the other wastes of space in his party will blame Amb. Stevens for being there in the first place.

  • LightSabre

    People, please! Cut Rep. Cummings some slack. Afterall, I’m sure he’s exhausted after putting in all that effort to investigate that anti-voter fraud group!

  • Darkstar1661

    Let us not forget that many Democrats did the same thing with Agent Terry during the Fast & Furious issues. Their pitiful lack of interest in the situation is not something new…

    • michael s

      Wasn’t it just last week conservatives were putting out msgs that agent Ivie was killed by a fast and furious gun. Let the investigation run its course.

      • Darkstar1661

        No, Univision was putting that out – and justifiably so considering they are the absolutely only news source outside FoxNews which has investigated Fast&Furious arming Mexican Drug Cartels what so ever.

        That said, not sure how that pertains to Democrats repeatedly being clueless as to the names of our dead Ambassadors and Officials killed because of Government screw-ups. Or is your position that someone supposedly theorizing something was possible before a stall-tactic investigation is complete means Democrats are justified in not knowing the names of high-profile Americans who were murdered on the Governments watch?

    Way to go Rep. Cummings! Way to represent my state. Puke. :o6

    • lainer51

      You have my sympathies!
      Now I need yours – Rendell (Pennsylvania) was our governor for 8 years and practically bankrupted the state AND Casey is our Senator and does nothing but shine Barry’s shoes…. We all have our crosses to bear, obviously!!

      • ceyanne

        My sympathies, to you as well. I live practically on the Mason Dixon line (just 10 min. south of it) so I am pretty familiar with PA politics, as well.

    I’m sure it was an honest mistake.

      It’s been one huge mistake since January 20, 2009.

    (202) 225-4741 << the phone number for Cummings DC office. Call them and tell them Christopher Stevens name.

    Ambassador “Smith?” House Republicans killed him, too! By unilaterally cutting security funding, according to Elijah. (When GOP controls the House, I guess the Senate and President no longer participate in legislation.)

    • strat77

      Nope. The House didn’t approve only a tiny portion of the State Dept budget request (it’s a request since the Senate won’t vote on an actual budget) $300M out of $4.7B

  • strat77

    Cummings also lied today about funding cuts but the House that affected security. The House only cut $300M from a State Dept $4.7B budget request. Less than 1%.

        The REAL PERSON behind Big Bird earns $300K/year. Does that put him in the 1% category????

    Poor Cummings is hard of hearing; remember when he heard the N word uttered by tea partiers after Obamascare passed? Smith, Stevens; their both white names.

    when he has the IQ of a quahog?

    Have I mentioned lately how tired I’m getting of having to use the words appalling, shameless, and unbelievable these last few months?

  • Dadbear

    Cummings’ staff has removed all opponents’ posts from his Facebook page, so now it’s nothing but glowing with praise. And it appears they have also removed the ability to place new comments… don’t know if that is for everyone, or only those who have not friended him or liked his page. Clearly, the small man can’t deal with opposition or criticism that doesn’t align with his agenda.

  • grais

    Oh, cut him some slack. He probably can’t come up with his Own name w/o turning the nameplate around.

  • Gmama

    At least he didn’t lie about the reason for the attack in front of Steven’s casket…like Hillary did.

    This bunch know no shame.

  • ember

    Cummings objected to a cohort calling Rice a liar. His role in the proceedings was to defend the O administration and be the token race-cryer. I was surprised that lightening didn’t part his hair along with a few others in the room.

  • lainer51

    I have yet heard Brian Terry’s name uttered from the lips of ANY of those loser Congressmen or from POTUS!! Shamefully, they all know Big Bird’s importance though.. Disgusting and moronic bunch running our, what used to be, beloved country.

  • lana ward

    These people have no soul. they show up so they will get a paycheck. Sad thing is, they’ll be voted back in

  • rant stocks

    This is the extent of how the dems are totally out of touch with there job,their focus is on how they can spend the peoples money on something stupid.

  • Justin Levesque

    You can bet that if Ambassador Stevens was black, Rep. Cummings would know his name, and be playing the race card for all he could.

  • http://twitter.com/sukeyrose sukeyrose

    Remember when Obama mispronounced corpsman{ corpse} man that was soo bad…

  • weRbroke

    Rep cummings opening statement pretty much summed attitudes of Democrats yesterday. Blame issue on lack of bipartisanship, republican house controlling budgets, and those cuts causing lack of funding for security in Libya. Fact is, there was majority dem vote on security funding issue, and no BUDGET has ever been passed by congress, and various Reps Lamb-asted Charlene for failing to answer REQUESTED support. State Dept failed to hand over documents that they attempted to declassify at hearing…Oh, and Lamb can’t say the name of the terrorist group responsible for 9/11, without acting dumb, then stammering, then looking to Amb Kennedy for answer. If a Bi-partisan was a word in a drinking game, I would have been drunk for the rest of the day.
