Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, tells Benghazi witnesses that "death is a part of life."

CUMMINGS: And, as I listen to your testimony I could not help but think of something that I said very recently -- two years ago now -- in a eulogy for a relative. I said that death is a part of life, so often we have to find a way to make life a part of death. And, I guess the reason why I'm saying that, going back to something Mr. Nordstrom said, he wanted, I guess all of you said this, he wanted to make sure we learn from this.

I hope this is an out of context thing and not that he shows little or no concern for those who died.

To take off on a "Bush bashing " saying................

"People died then Obama lied"

I know, that's in bad taste, please flame me now.........

Ugh some folks are just nauseating.This did not have to happen.Or the Obama and old Hill could have at least tried to stop it.Instead they chose to ignore and worry more about their own asses and an election.Meanwhile..our people were over there probably thinking they'd recieve some help all the way to their death they probably hoped it was coming.Obama and Hill blamed a friggin video and had a man arrested too.SMH.Then you have dumbasses wanting to compare this shit to Watergate ..losers..not even close!

It's a quote from a sitting member of Congress today, not a political party's talking point.

Can you imagine if a repub had said this? But since it's a dem, it's just fine and dandy. 

IMO, it's sickening!

Conservatives are held to an impossibly high standard.

Libs are held to no standards.

The weird thing is if the administration had just said it was a terrorist attack from the get-go, it is quite possible that it would have stopped there: we would have accepted it, mourned our dead, and maybe the problematic things that occurred on 9/11 could have been discussed internally and not in front of the American people.

The administrationn lying about the nature of the cause of the incident made everyone a lot more sensitive about any other deception here. The administration CYA-ing to avoid trouble, opened themselves up to way more scrutiny.
