Democrats walk out on grieving families before Benghazi testimony. And Dems say they're the ones who care?

In a move that illustrates why the overwhelming majority of Americans have grown to despise partisan politics – and come to be understandably offended by the actions of the Left, Progressives and Democrats on the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee executed – under the guise of protest – one of the most insensitive and disrespectful actions in the history of the United States House of Representatives. They staged a pre-planned and organized "walkout" before the testimonies of the families of those slaughtered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
Those elected to office are sent to Washington to represent the whole of their constituencies, not just those with whom they agree. By staging this inarguably childish – and ultimately selfish – political theater, they have abdicated their responsibility to represent those with whom they disagree ideologically. This is an abdication of their obligation to the office; to their constituents. It is an action that even their supporters should abhor and, in fact, penalize them for.

Is it any wonder why more and more Americans are coming to despise the actions of the Left? In a move that shows just how heartless, cruel and dirty these liberals are, a large group of them committed one of the most disrespectful and despicable actions I have ever seen. They executed an organized "walkout" just as the families of those who were killed in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, were about to speak on behalf of their loved ones.

Aren't those elected to office supposed to represent all of their constituents, not just those with whom they agree? What these Democrats and Progressives did to these grieving families is nothing less than reprehensible, and all of us - including those who voted for them - should condemn them for it (especially since we all know President Obama certainly will not condemn them for it).

Here's the list of the heartless, cruel Democrats and Progressives who walked out on the families who were about to speak of their loved ones who gave their lives for our country in this covered-up attack (the same families, by the way, who have yet to receive any answers, let alone any response from Congress -- or from president-wannabe Hilary Clinton who famously and arrogantly said about the Benghazi murders, "What difference does it make?"):
  • Carolyn Maloney (P [Progressive]-NY)
  • Danny Davis (P-IL)
  • Eleanor Holmes Norton (P-DC)
  • Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA)
  • Jim Cooper (D-TN)
  • John Tierney (P-MA)
  • Mark Pocan (P-WI)
  • Matt Cartwright (P-PA)
  • Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM)
  • Peter Welch (P-VT)
  • Stephen Lynch (D-MA)
  • Steven Horsford (P-NV)
  • Tammy Duckworth (P-IL)
  • Tony Cardenas (D-CA)
  • William Lacy Clay (D-MO)

As an aside, but certainly just as relevant, other would-be testifiers on Benghazi have been silenced and/or had their jobs stripped away for trying to tell the truth of what happened the night our US Consulate was attacked, while Obama simply went to bed upon hearing the news, rather than ordering help to the victims. And don’t forget, just last week our own Secretary of State John Kerry deliberately stopped the Benghazi families from even being questioned by Congress. 

It's amazing how excoriated President Nixon was for the Watergate scandal - which involved a break-in. Nobody died. Still, Nixon respected the office of the presidency enough to resign rather than subject the office to further degradation.

Not Obama though. This Administration -- which tries to admonish Republicans for not caring about people - is its own version of the Mafia and the actions of these Democrats is not only disgusting, but wholly un-American. The most sickening part is the Dems try to portray themselves as the ones "who care" about people, while the rest of us on the other side of the political aisle are accused of being heartless, uncaring oafs. Funny, I didn't see one Republican show the same disrespect to the Benghazi families by walking out on them as the Democrats blatantly demonstrated. Shame on every one of them.
