97 House Republicans on the wall...take them all down

97 House Republicans sent a letter to President Obama telling him they were ‘deeply troubled’ by his consideration of Susan Rice to be the next Secretary of State.  The letter goes on to claim “Ambassador Rice is widely viewed as having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi matter.”  That’s rich from a party that ginned up the Iraqi invasion or lied to the American people about every piece of Obama-approved legislation.  I have copied the link to the letter below for your reading pleasure which includes the signatures of the 97 cosigners.   Here are some of the select few that have signed the ludicrous letter.

Author South Carolina’s Jeff Duncan, who wants to open all of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) to drilling exploration and production, including the Gulf Coast, Alaska, Atlantic, and Pacific. Also approves new leasing areas such as the Southern Atlantic OCS and the Eastern Gulf, and full exploration of ANWR.

Texas Congressman Michael McCaul who believes live begins at contraception and voted to declare the preborn as persons under 14th amendment.

Iowa Congressman Steve King, who called the man who flew his airplane into an IRS building “a hero”.

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann…you know the rest.

Infamous South Carolina Congressman Joe “You Lie” Wilson who also said “The Southern heritage, the Confederate heritage is very honorable."

Indiana’s Dan Burton who opposes abortion in all cases, but thinks guns should be available to everybody and wiretaps expanded. 

Georgia’s Phil Gingrey who Voted NO on removing US armed forces from Afghanistan and on investigating Bush impeachment for lying about Iraq.

California’s full of shit incompetent Dana Rohrabacher who Voted NO on investigating Bush impeachment for lying about Iraq and on redeploying US troops out of Iraq starting in 90 days.  And voted YES on declaring Iraq part of War on Terror with no exit date,and on authorizing military force in Iraq.

Texas’ Louis Gohmert who worried that immigrant babies that "could be raised and coddled as future terrorists"— and later, "twenty, thirty years down the road, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life."

Many of the signees voted to invade Iraq based on false intelligence and never censured Secretary of State Powell or National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice for their words and testimony in support of that false war.  And while you will see other nut jobs like Allen West, Jean Schmidt, Trent Franks, and Sue Myrick, you do not see the name of  Michigan’s Mike Rogers, Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.  Rogers clearly recognizes bullshit politics and understands the intelligence game.
Here's the Letter from House Republicans
