Ma’am Barbara Boxer objects to Ted Cruz’s resolution to get answers on Benghazi [video]

Sen. Ted Cruz asked for unanimous consent to move forward with a resolution to establish a joint select committee for investigating the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack. Senator Barbara Boxer from the crumbling state of California objected to the resolution … and then had the nerve to rail against partisanship.

As Cruz noted, there’s a little something called “the truth” and it’s not partisan.

Why might Boxer object to an investigation that might damage Hillary Clinton in the long run up to the 2016 election?

Remember when Ma’am Boxer used a Benghazi hearing to soft-launch Hillary’s 2016 campaign?

Nah, that couldn’t be it.

  • Brandon Goeringer

    Boxer is the lowest of low on Capitol Hill. A festering malignancy to justice and the truth. Her party, politics and the president come before the people. She is swine.

    • Clete Torres

      Lower than Feinstein? Lower than Schumer, Rangel, Pelosi, Waters? I doubt it.

      • Brandon Goeringer

        They all swim in the same pond scum. Occasionally one is able to sink lower while the other gets its head above the surface.

        Well, maybe we should all give her a little ring-a-ding and tell her WE WANT ANSWERS?! (202) 224-3553 DO IT.

          OK. Done.

            Yes. Chose to leave msg. Said I frowned upon her approach to Amb. Stevens.

      She’s protecting H. Clinton so that he chances of getting on the ballot for 2016 aren’t destroyed.

  • Magnifico

    Why are they afraid of the truth??? Who else can they run in 2016? Biden? John Edwards? George Clooney?

    • factsobill

      Because the truth will leave them high and dry, even destroy their fecal house of cards!

  • Pendog

    So obvious that Pantsuits has been decided upon for 2016 by the so-called Democrat elites. Boxer shamelessly soils herself to protect her chosen one.

    • Republicanvet

      Boxer has been soiled for a long time. The stink is just more obvious here.

      Despicable leftists covering up to protect their politics, with their supporters cheering them on.

      She/he does it for the attention, so why give it what it wants? Ignore the downvotes and she/he will eventually grow bored and move on.

      • Jay Stevens

        I really wish that discus tracked downvotes the same as upvotes.

      • Clete Torres

        We do it just to screw with it’s little teeny-weeny mind.

        • Michelle

          If ya really want to screw with its little teeny-weeny mind, then ignore it – as if it doesn’t even exist. To give it attention, even negative, makes it happy. Being completely ignored is what trolls can’t stand.

  • Ty in TX

    My senator….I do love his performance of his duties so far.

    • Elaine

      Unlike my loser Shaheen. ugh.

      • MNWoman

        I got you beat – Franken.

        • nc

          And Boxer – for the win!

          • MNWoman

            Hold on…can your Senator also be called Stuart Smalley?

          • nc

            Well, she did insist a brigadier general call her senator instead of ma’am. Still, it’s a close call. I wouldn’t take yours, but I bet you wouldn’t take mine either.

          • MNWoman

            I feel like that song “anything you can do I can do better, I can do anything better than you” but opposite (change better to worse).

            But yes, it is a tough call. Although, Franken is mostly a useful sheep for the progressives. They can count on his vote but he doesn’t actually do much. Boxer is usually front and center when acting like a moron.

            So I might give you the edge here, but what really pushes you to the win is the Feinstein/Boxer combination.

          • QueenB

            I dunno….Turban Durbin

        • nc

          And Boxer – for the win!

          I’ll raise you Tester and a train wreck Max.

          • MNWoman

            Stuart Smalley!

          • MNWoman

            By the way, how is the race looking in Montana next year?

          • arttie

            Dems have been having trouble fielding a candidate. Max and his train wreck have made many of the purported front runners skittish. Only one candidate on their side so far, a retired S and L banker (???!!!) who has said there will be not Dem to the right of him. That will not sit well with their crowd here in the Peoples’ Democtat Republic of Missoula.

        • Michelle

          I have you all beat – Feinstein and Boxer!

          • MNWoman

            I will admit deafeat. Congrats. Or not…not sure…are congratulations appropriate for winning the “who has the worst senator” debate?

          • Michelle

            No congrats, but I need a hug and a stiff drink. :-) Don’t forget, I also have Pelosi.

          • MNWoman

            Oh, good God. Sending you more than one hug. And an “e-drink” if there is such a thing.

            At least Bachmann is my representative. I know lots of people (well, mostly libs and progressives) think she is nuts, but she stands strong on conservative issues.

          • Michelle

            I’m good in the Rep. dept., mine is Republican, but my fellow Californians up North keep re-electing Pelosi and for that, I do apologize.

          • MNWoman

            My fellow Minnesotans to the south of me elect Ellison, so we are even.

          • GsGirl

            I make a heck of a margarita! And I always have fresh hugs available.

          • The Penguin (Happy Hanukkah)

            Ah…for the “hat trick”. And my sincere apologies.

          • Jay Stevens

            Congratulations are not appropriate for a Pyrrhic victory.

        • Pendog

          Don’t leave out our stutterin’, stumblin’. ,manic-depressive governor Dayton!

          • MNWoman

            Always good to see fellow conservatives from MN.

            I actually am deaf, so I cannot hear him stutter. Is it bad?

            I am not really noticing too many solid conservative candidates for any of the state wide elections next year. Why can we not find solid conservatives?

            And I wish the DFL would really split back up to the democrats and farmer-labor parties. I think the “farmer-labor” part of the DFL is why so many people still vote D. I dont’ think many of the democrats who vote for Franken/Klobuchaer et al. are really as liberal as the candidates they elect, but still believe that the dems are for the working people and the republicans are for the rich people.

          • Pendog

            Any real conservative is targeted early and often to be tarred by misinformation, always labeled ‘extreme’ and ‘radical’. The majority of us here in the outlying areas are conservative, but march to the tune played by the Dems who control the votes in the Twin Cities. It ain’t getting any better.

      • MNWoman

        I got you beat – Franken.

          My reasons for being reluctant to move to Texas (or most Southern states) would make some people seriously laugh at me.

          I have a tremendous fear of snakes and we do not have many in MN. We have garter snakes and even they absolutely terrify me. I seriously could not live in a state where snakes of any variety were commonly seen.

    We need another plumber with stones in California who will mount a recall for Boxer for impeding this investigation. The country demands the full truth. After one year all her side has offered are lies, deceit, misdirection, and most importantly no justice for the Americans who were abandoned, and left to die.

    Boxer is yet another reason why Mexifornia should just slide into the ocean. The idiot LIVs will continue to elect her, Pelosi, Feinstein, and their ilk. Liberals are simply retarded, so they don’t have the capacity to recognize a good politician from a sleaze bag.

    • Michelle

      Only 43% of registered voters in CALIfornia are Democrats, why would you be so quick to get rid of the rest of us, my fellow citizen of the UNITED States of America? (land mass can’t slide on a tectonic plate, look like you’re stuck with us)

      • MNWoman

        Yes, but how many of those 43% vote more than once 😉 ?

        By the way, do we include Hollywood liberal nutjobs as LIV or do they get their own category, such as “detached from reality”?

        • Michelle

          Well, regardless of voter fraud within that 43%, there is still 57% of us in California who aren’t Democrat or Liberal – why is our country so eager to write us off? As for the Hollywood liberal nut jobs, many do not live here and don’t vote here.

          • MNWoman

            Nah, I am not willing to write you off. There are plenty of true Patriots in California who still deserve the support of fellow Patriots.

          • Michelle

          • GsGirl

            I’m right there with you, Michelle…I live here in SoCal…it’s not an easy thing to do these days. I’m still a flag-waving American, in spite of living in CA!

          • Michelle

            I’m not giving up on my home! I was born and raised here, I’ll be damned if illegal aliens and their supporters are going to take my home away from me. My Rep. in the US House is Republican, my Rep in the CA Assembly is also Republican. I am VERY proud of that and it helps me retain hope. Glad to know I’m not alone down here.

          • GsGirl

            Unfortunately, my US Rep and my CA Assembly Rep are both democrats…but no, you’re not alone. I love California…just not some of the choices the politicians have made.

      • Jay Stevens

        The problem is that, like Illinois (Cook County especially), all the D’s are concentrated in the densely populated urban areas. So what happens in the cities drives state politics.

  • MarcusFenix

    I’m all for the rule of law…but at this point, I’d be fine with the idea of conducting these investigations, with or without government consent. Why expect them to allow an investigation into something they screwed up?

    Just do it, and get it over with so we can get answers. Beats sitting around and waiting for people like Boxer.

    Better to ask for forgiveness, than permission, I say.

    • MNWoman

      The DOJ/Holder seems to be doing whatever it wants, rule of law (and the Constitution) be damned.

      So I say go for it, as well.

    “…from the crumbling state of California”

    My state is crumbling?

    • GsGirl

      Yeah, I’d have to agree that it is chipping away, at least around the edges. With the governor we have, and the laws he’s signing, we are no longer the great state we once were. I’ve lived in this state almost 53 years…it’s not the California it once was….(sigh)

      • Michelle

        Our state is not “crumbling” it’s actually turning around, at least economically – we were once the 7th largest economy in the world, we’d slid down to 17th, but we’re now headed back to being the 8th largest economy. Our job growth is picking up, our home values and sales are skyrocketing, etc. Dems are losing registered voters and if we could only get a grip on some strong voter ID laws and stop the voter fraud, we might stand a chance of turning this ship around.

        • GsGirl

          Sorry, Michelle…I didn’t mean it to come off like that…I meant more like morale was down in general…at least in my neck of the woods.
