US Erection 12

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

What a world, what a world....


Safer to run on the "The last republican in the White House started two wars and dug the US into a financial hole so deep it spiralled into a global recession, do you really want one of those again?" message, imho.


UMMM... scroll up to the top of the previous page and you'll find THIS:

Republicans started two wars??

Bill the Dem Clinton has stated he would have also chosen to invade Iraq if he were President at the time.

Wake up Per, it was a BIPARTISAN decision. Image

And hey Dems, Repubs, EUROPEANS were onboard with the Afghan War from the get-go, so like wtf dude….


YEAH so as I say: Image

As for the global recession, there are those who heap most of the blame on Dem Clinton, as in:

2000-2001 US recession -> low interest rates -> housing bubble -> eventual global recession.

Back on topic, they should impeach Obama for obstruction of justice just like they did Clinton.

Until now, Boehner resisted calls from House Republicans to establish such a committee, repeatedly pointing to the four House panels already investigating the matter


Yeah, because four panels investigating Benghazi is simply not enough!
Let's get a fifth one going! :look:


Further down in the linked article:

Boehner said the select committee would “elevate the investigation to a new level.”

The leadership aide, who declined to be identified in order to speak freely about internal talks, explained that "while the existing investigatory committees in the House have full subpoena power, the administration has now demonstrated it is willing to flagrantly defy such subpoena requests, compelling the House to consider taking the strongest actions possible in an effort to ensure Americans have the truth about what happened."


If the other committees hadn't discovered wrong-doing and obstruction of justice

... there wouldn't be a need for this select committee.

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is announcing today that he intends for the House to vote to create a new select committee to investigate the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. He released the following statement:

“Americans learned this week that the Obama Administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the People's House. These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen. In light of these new developments, the House will vote to establish a new select committee to investigate the attack, provide the necessary accountability, and ensure justice is finally served.

“The administration's withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principles of oversight upon which our system of government is built. And it forces us to ask the question, what else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?

The House committees that have been investigating this attack have done extraordinary work, using their subpoena power, holding dozens of hearings, and conducting hundreds of interviews. Without this work we would not know much that we do today. But it’s clear that questions remain, and the administration still does not respect the authority of Congress to provide proper oversight. This dismissiveness and evasion requires us to elevate the investigation to a new level. I intend for this select committee to have robust authority, and I will expect it to work quickly to get answers for the American people and the families of the victims."
