Questions arise over whether GOP has moral courage to take on Obama, Democrats

Weepy BoehnerWith the administration of Barack Obama dealing with what appears to be their own scandale du jour, the one bright spot for them is the flak the GOP is taking from both the party faithful and those on the left side of the aisle over whether the Republican leadership really does have what it takes to take on Obama and the Democrats.

An article today at the American Thinker asks rhetorically:

So why is Boehner dragging his feet on empanelling a special (or select) committee to tackle the Benghazi disaster?

Why is the speaker standing pat on last week’s statement that House standing committees are getting the investigative job done?

Referencing Boehner’s insistence on not convening a select committee on Benghazi, the AT’s J. Robert Smith echoed the attitude of a growing chorus on the right:

Boehner understands that there’s much a stake over Benghazi — for the nation, for justice, for his party, and his speakership.

The speaker needs to yield, and soon.

A Real Negative Nancy…

Meanwhile, NewsBusters reports (video here) that ranking minority member of the House Nancy Pelosi openly opined during an interview on MSNBC that i

f Boehner “were a woman, they’d be calling him the weakest speaker in history.”

The San Francisco Democrat went on to lambast Speaker because the House Republican majority under his leadership simply hasn’t “accomplished anything.”

The Republican Party’s Greatest Enemy Is — the Republican Party…

The news portal Real Clear Politics (RCP) has posted a Republican National Committee 2012 ad that that addressed the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

But it was cited that Mitt Romney himself was the one who nixed the ad because “Romney wanted to focus on the economy and not appear to be politicizing the terror attack.”

Many conservatives consider the pulled ad not only powerful and politically damning of the Obama Administration of their bungling of the entire Benghazi Massacre, and some think the ad may even have turned the recent election in favor of contender Romney.
