House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi emerged today to offer her thoughts on the House select committee, which will investigate Benghazi. Democrats are mulling whether to demand full parity on the committee, participate in a minority status, or participate at all.

Pelosi signaled that she is leaning toward having her Democrats not participate at all.

Pelosi, who was in control of the House when it passed Obamacare over holidays and in late-night votes before even allowing members to read the full bill, complained about the process by which the Republicans are establishing the select committee. “Something happened in the caucus and the word was spreading last Friday and we didn’t get word about it until the rule was filed late Tuesday night, and the question now is what are the terms in which the Democrats could participate,” Pelosi, who presided over the passage of Obamacare despite the majority of Americans’ opposition to it, said.

She added that her preference is for Democrats not to join the committee at all: “We have made it clear that our caucus is clearly among those who say don’t have anything to do with it, and it is a kangaroo court, has been identified as such. Don’t dignify what they are doing…” and so forth.

Polls have consistently shown that Pelosi’s opinion on Benghazi is not shared by a majority of Americans. More than 60% say they want Benghazi investigated.

Guys, you're wasting your time. DP's lips are so firmly planted on the Dem Party buttocks that he can't see past Nancy's hemorrhoids.

By the way, Danny: it wasn't "some terrorist attacked the embassy." It was multiple (expert) sources kept telling the White House and Secretary of State that the embassy wasn't safe, then the president refusing to rescue Americans under attack. Tool

Pelosi already knows what really happened and who is hiding some thing. My bet is that there are big bucks involved. A major dem, or someone beloved of a major dem, stood to gain from the sale of Libyan oil, misdirected arms scheduled for the Syrian rebels or some other assets in Benghazi. Whatever it was, Pelosi already knows. She will do nothing to eliminate the cover-up or to make it easier to surface the evil doers.

Is there any democrat who will step up and act with the same integrity and honor that Howard Baker demonstrated during the Watergate hearings? This is a question that republicans should be asking. Who will be the democrat who fills the role of Howard Baker on the Benghazi committee?

Give Pelosi until the gavel drops to have warm bodies present. If none show up then Gowdy should have the option to fill chairs according to his own preferences.

It's Pelosi's to lose, along with the privilege to whine about partisanship.

Squirrel-gazi is a brilliant play by the R establishment.

They are going to skate through primaries with ease despite helping Obamacare be implemented, despite supporting amnesty, and all it took was a select committee.
