Eric Boehlert unimpressed by Lindsey Graham’s ‘hysterical Benghazi rhetoric’

What difference, at this point, does it make what happened in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11? Media Matters fellow Eric Boehlert reminds us tonight to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead and just calm down. Next, confirm Chuck Hagel despite his train wreck of a confirmation hearing.

Here’s a better question: will it take a hunger strike to finally get some answers from the White House? One answer?


Sen. Graham to block Hagel, Brennan nominations until more details on Benghazi are released

Ayotte, Graham and McCain send letter to Obama asking one question on Benghazi attack

Sharyl Attkisson has one more question about Benghazi

Bob Schieffer still has questions about Benghazi

CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson still waiting for White House to respond to Benghazi photo requests

Shameful: Oliver Willis, libs make light of deaths of four Americans with #GOPBenghaziQuestions; Update: Greg Gutfeld slams Willis


The initial version of this post misspelled Lindsey Graham’s first name. We regret the error.

    Obama voted present on 9/11/12 and Americans died.

    During the attack, the Hero of Benghazi yawned and went to bed, in order to get up and go to Las Vegas.

    He prevented any rescue…twice.

    • Matthew Koch

      You’re spot on. Especially on that last point. At least President Carter tried to rescue the Iranian hostages.

    • Matthew Koch

      Also, a big thumbs up for that Bruce Campbell picture.

      • Tangchung

        Giving you a thumbs up, not sure why people didn’t like your comment. It’s like you have Ex’s on twitchy

        • Matthew Koch

          Thanks Tangchug! I don’t think I have any on twitchy. Unless some butthurt tool has come over from another thread.

        • Matthew Koch

          Sorry that should be Tangchung!

          That’ll teach me to drink and go on twitchy at the same time.

          • Tangchung

            No problem, i do it all the time.

          • Laura Thompson

            Lovin’ the friendfest Matthew & Tangchung!! Sometimes I absolutely HAVE to have an adult beverage to deal with the unbelieveable stoopidity of the lib/prog mindset…which is why I try to stay away from Twitchy until at least noon!!! Keep throttling the Lib/Progs Gents!!! Love reading your posts!!!

            Ditto…I’ve been in a troll-fest with another Jackwagon on another Twitchy story. I finally told him he could insult me all he wanted, because I wasn’t going to pay attention to him any more…I think I hear a margarita calling my name!

    • blueniner

      He was hanging out with Reggie Love the night of Bengahzi, and couldnt be bothered.

    • DawgPile

      Word has it he kissed his Nobel Peace Prize and then went to bed…

  • Lady 12

    How the heck would a hunger strike block Hagel?

  • Matthew Koch

    Even my gay friends think he’s being too much of a drama queen.

  • Tangchung

    Eric Boehlert was ticked when he found out Nathan’s Hot Dog eating contest was food.

  • Maxx

    Isn’t there one respectable member of the liberal press that is willing to go on record and write “My President screwed up, four Americans died and it didn’t have to happen.”

    Why is that so g-damn difficult?

    • grais

      Apparently it’s impossible.

      • $36544368

        No sensitivity chip? Brain cells missing? Who knows. It is kind of cool to see the oxymoron of ‘respectable member of the liberal press’ though…LOL. Good call, Maxx.

  • grais

    A hunger strike?? Is that some measure of…something?
    I’d bet Lindsey Graham is unimpressed with everything about Eric Whatsisname, if he’s ever even heard of him.

  • nc

    Why aren’t these people mad as hell that we were so obviously lied to (i.e. the video) and BHO and Co. don’t think they owe us a straight explanation?

  • Spatial Awareness

    “Hysterical Rhetoric” = ” why isn’t he willing to go in hunger strike”

  • blueniner

    Is Eric Blowlert is stll wearing knee pads around David Brock?

  • subtleties

    People were murdered and Obama supporters don’t want to take responsibility–

  • RevDrEBuzz

    See, no golf courses in Ben Gazzi’s home state, so no chance would it get saved.

  • Ha Keem

    lol, sooner or later republicans will realize, republican’s voted for Obama in ridiculously large numbers.

    • Lady 12

      Yeah, for the same reason a bunch of dead people and underage kids did.
      Oh, and *Republicans, not republican’s.

      • Ha Keem

        lol, 4 more years ?

  • GaryTheBrave

    I always confuse the names of Eric Boehlert with Eric Bolling on FNC.

  • salvagesalvage

    > will it take a hunger strike to finally get some answers from the White House? One answer?

    Uh they’ve given several actually.

    Poor wingnuts, so desperate for a scandal they’ll grasp at anything much to the delight of the DNC no doubt.

    Obama really is lucky to have foes as incompetent as you guys.
