One thought on “On Huma

  1. Recently a woman asked Anthony Weiner if he were elected mayor, how could he discipline someone who lied repeatedly and crossed the lines of ethical behavior? His response? Something along the lines of, “I can tell you’re not going to vote for me, but why don’t you let other people decide for themselves if they want to support me or not?”

    When his listeners objected that he wasn’t answering the question, he merely rephrased and repeated his statement.

    I’ve been hearing the same sort of non-responsive answers from people being questioned in DC about Benghazi, the IRS and NSA scandals, Fast & Furious, and so on.

    Is this the best we can do? I wish that people like Trey Gowdy could / would be a little more forceful in demanding definitive, clear answers from these individuals. How about, “You say you don’t know who gave the order (to stand down in Benghazi, to institute Fast & Furious, etc)? Tell you what. We’re going to take a lunch break. We’ll be back in about an hour. There’s a sheriff standing right behind you. He’ll accompany you back to your office. Gather up all your paperwork and bring it back here. When we return from lunch we expect you to have answers to our questions. If you don’t, we have a secure room for you down at County where you will stay until you DO have answers to our questions. The clock is ticking.”
