 His job is to throw big showy tantrums and waste the panel's time until the public tires of it all.

I don't think he's going to get a lot of opportunity to do that on this kind of committee. At least I hope not!

You and me both.  Adam Smith (D. Wa) has a large constituency in and around Ft. Pierce....lots of retired military in his District that understand Benghazi all too well.  He's a good pick for the Committee and a sign that Pelousy did not get her way. 

Cummings is the loudmouth obstructionist, but I think the other Democrats may be more inclined to get down to business with staff, out of the public eye, and find out what was really going on.  I believe there are more Democrats than any of them will admit who see Benghazi as a major threat to the Party if half of what has been rumored actually went on.  I think Democrats like Smith are smart enough to know that they need to be seen on the right side of this one, and cannot leave this to the usual suspects in the Pelousy crowd.

Let's see how this proceeds...

Makes one wonder... does this guy not realize what he is or is he just so impressed to have a place at the trough that he doesn't care?

I'll be surprised if either Smith (for the reasons Chief laid out) or Duckworth (Team mates first - scum second) really toe the Dem line on this.

Why is it that instead of being investigated for criminal misconduct, ( Elijah Cummings colluding with the IRS) and running interference for the Democrats .. He is on this committee? :shrug:

That's an interesting question.  Gowdy should oppose the appointment, if only to remind spectators of the conflict of character.

I'm not getting the same feeling here.

IMO, a lot of the DEMS have reached the point where they are thinking of their own political skins.

Obama will NOT recover from this.

You know... Apart from Cummings, these are credible people from their side of the aisle.  Maybe, just maybe... Boehner dug in.  We'll never know, but... hmmm.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Democrats are nervous.  They're starting to crack.
