Videos: The new BFF of the conservative movement is …

posted at 10:01 am on May 13, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Well, if you live long enough, you get to see everything, and not just once but twice, apparently.  Froner Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who has long been a gadfly to administrations of both parties, ripped the Obama White House over both the Benghazi and IRS scandals over the weekend in no uncertain terms.  When asked by Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace whether Kucinich thought the talking points had been massaged for political reasons, Kucinich could hardly contain his contempt (via Daniel Halper and Andrew Kaczynski):

“This is one liberal Democrat who said the intervention was wrong,” Kucinich began, blasting the Obama administration for helping to take out Qaddafi. “And what the attack on the consulate brings up, Chris, is the failure of the Benghazi policy from the beginning. And that’s why they had to call it a street demonstration instead of an attack because on the eve of an election that brought in a whole new narrative about foreign policy, about dealing with terrorism, and about the consequences that led to four deaths of people who served the United States.”

Fox host Chris Wallace asked, “So do you think those talking points were politically scrubbed?”

“Of course they were,” said Kucinich. “Come on, are you kidding? This is one of those things that you have to realize were in the circumference of an election, and when you get on the eve of an election, everything becomes political. Unfortunately, Americans died and people who believe in America who put their lives on the line, they weren’t provided with protection. they weren’t provided with a response. They and their families had a right to make sure they were defended. Look, we went into Benghazi under the assumption that somehow there was going to be a massacre in Benghazi. So we went there to protect the Libyan people. We couldn’t go in to protect our own Americans who were serving there? I’m offended by this, and there has to be real answers to the questions being raised.”

This gets to exactly what I’ve been saying since the “spontaneous demonstration” talking points finally fell apart. That was a cover story to protect the reputation of Obama on his Arab Spring policy, most specifically to the decision to support the coup d’etat against Moammar Qaddafi without Congressional approval.  It’s turned out to be a disaster, but just before the Benghazi attack at the Democratic National Convention, Obama and John Kerry doubled down on it, making the supposed success in Libya an argument for Obama’s superior acumen on foreign policy — along with the claim that Obama had “al-Qaeda on the run.” As Benghazi and later Mali proved, Obama gave AQ and its allies all of eastern Libya as a free zone, thanks to that 30,000-foot intervention.

As if my head wasn’t already spinning by being more in agreement with Dennis Kucinich than I thought possible, along comes this segment, via Mediaite and Weasel Zippers:

Former Democratic Congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich slammed the unethical targeting of conservative Tea Party groups by the IRS on Fox News Sunday’s panel, unequivocally suggesting that this was political targeting at its worst.

After dropping the disclaimer that he is a “liberal Democrat” and does not celebrate Tea Party politics, Kucinich firmly claimed politics has no place with the IRS:

“We can not have a condition in America where peoples politics are the basis for IRS attacks.” …

Wallace countered, asking if Kucinich thought the IRS’s missteps were straight up political targeting:

“How can it not be?” Kucinich concluded.

Perhaps we’re in agreement on these two issues because there isn’t much room for disagreement on either of them.

Too bad we don’t have a number of conservative types like Kucinich that don’t sugar coat their answers. Sure there’s not much wiggle room with these two scandals, but he could have tried to verbally joust his way out like Jan Williams with the talking point “There’s nothing new here”

unlike most democrats kucinich proves that he’s not like most other democrats, he can think for himeself. At the end of the day he’s still a democrat.

I have my issues with Kucinich, but one thing about him is true: what you see is what you get. Something like this would never have happened if he was POTUS.

I’m not terribly surprised. Kucinich is a delusional lefty, but he has always struck me as a relatively honest delusional lefty.

Name any other democrat who’s ethics aren’t entirely based on who’s doing wrong and how can they spin it to their party’s advantage, crime or no crime on their part?

The modern DNC is little more than a Power through any means, fair or foul criminal organization.

mark81150 on May 13, 2013 at 10:25 AM

Kucinich is more critical of these 2 issues than former GOP Congressman Morning Joe. One wouldn’t think that could possibly be the case, until they look at who signs each of their paychecks.

Democrat Commentators on Fox News are more likely to be critical of the DNC and Republican commentators on MSNBC are more likely to be critical of the GOP.

MSNBC is pure politics and is nothing compared to Fox News. Fox News actually does investigative journalism.

But my previous point still stands. I don’t know that Kucinich would be this critical of the DNC if he were employed by MSNBC, which is probably why he isn’t employed by MSNBC.

The fact that MSNBC is so rabidly leftwing actually hurts Fox News in that people assume Fox News is just the right’s version of MSNBC which is far from the truth.

still, their lack of a presence here on these threads says a lot.

From the Daily Caller:

British Prime Minister David Cameron and Obama will give a joint press conference in the Rose Garden at 11:15 a.m. EST, where a few reporters will be allowed to ask questions.

I kind of feel sorry for David Cameron. This would be like having a press conference the day after Bill Clinton shook his finger and said, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”. Perhaps Cameron should take the opportunity to hand Obama some DVD’s and say, “would you care to revise these Mr. Obama”—-”and no, we don’t need 12 revisions”.

I’ll say that this puts him above 99% of both parties.

I lived in Madison, WI and Berkeley, CA in quick succession. I got the vibe from Berkeley that they were Liberal until it interfered with their dog’s spa and detox. In Madison, I felt like they were liberal come heck or high water, and I respected that a lot more.

Not to say that he’s right about much… but I’ll trust him completely with his own honor. High praise.

DITTO.

And Kucinich, though an admitted Socialist in his interpretations of democracy, does, at least and to his credit, focus his reasoning on the Constitution — he’s outraged, as I know I am, that such corruption of ethics has/is occurring. It speaks beyond political range, it’s a betrayal, clearly violation of, ethics, Benghazi is.

Lourdes on May 13, 2013 at 10:33 AM

Congress understands that procedural fairness is critical in a democratic body because you never know who will be in power next. Thus, in 2005, Republicans backed away from getting rid of the Senate filibuster, and in 2013 Dingy Harry Reid also backed away from it.

But Obama just doesn’t care. It’s all about raw power for its own sake with him. He doesn’t realize that he’s opening the door to having a Republican IRS in the future start targetting all the Soros, et al. groups for harassment. Or, whitewashing matters of national security.

The whole thing is shameful.

Outlander on May 13, 2013 at 10:34 AM

There’s not much Kucinich says that I can agree with, but I’ve long respected the guy. I believe he loves this country, he’s intelligent, he’s not full of vitriol, and he’s pretty much a straight shooter. That puts him miles ahead of most Dems today.

My thoughts exactly. I don’t agree with him on much but he has consistent positions based on his (very wrong) principles. That gets him a little respect unlike his former colleagues who simply ask themselves WWOD.

Because, while you are correct about Qaddafi, we decided to confiscate Libyan weapons for the “Arab Spring” in Syria.

Qaddafi had gotten very frail (remember his rambling speech at the UN, which immediately preceded Obama’s?) and his even more crazy son was being groomed to take the reigns.

The Dennis Kucinich entry from ‘Vote Democrat for Realism and Sanity!’*

A VOTE FOR DENNIS KUCINICH IS A VOTE AN UNITED NATIONS, PLANETS, AND GALAXIES! DENNIS HAS PHONED HOME AND HE HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR SECRETARY GENERAL OF U.N.P.G.!

‘The energy of the stars becomes us. We become the energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: one with the universe, whole and holy. From one source, endless creative energy, bursting forth, kinetic, elemental; we, the earth, air, water and fire-source of nearly fifteen billion years of cosmic spiraling.”

– Dennis Kucinich, in the Journal of Conscious Evolution

Democrats, you can contribute to the Kucinich campaigns at: http://www.kucinich.us and http://www.unpg.gal.org.

On either site, you can purchase some of Klingon Kucinich’s bestsellers: ‘Inside Area 51: My Personal Resurrection Surgeries On The Aliens And Our Conversations Afterward,’ ‘New Age Alternative Energy: We Are At One With The Sun And The Stars. We Are The Energy Sources For Which We Have Been Waiting,’ ‘We Are The World, We Are The Aliens, We Are At One With The Universe,’ ‘Chemtrails: Our Fight With Exotic Weapons, Radiation, Electromagnetic, Psychotronic, Sonic, Laser or Other Energies,’ ‘Project MK-ULTRA: Resist. We Shall Not Surrender To Mood Management and Mind Control For The Purpose of Information Wars,’ and Shirley Maclaine ‘Sage-ing While Age-ing II: Dennis’ Close Encounter With The 5th Dimension Kind.’ Maclaine writes about her dear friend Dennis’ encounter with a UFO. Shirley says he had a close encounter with a UFO at her house in Washington State that he found very moving…

‘The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him. It hovered, soundless, for 10 minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn’t comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind. He has never again been the same.’

– Shirley Maclaine

Shirley, we agree. Klingon Kucinich has never been the same…not that he was all there in the beginning.

But…but…but ROGUE agents in the government are to blame! Just ask Barry and Hillary!

Solyndra, Tesla, Fast and Furious, Benghazi……ALL ROUGE agents of the ‘vast right wing conspiracy’.

I don’t care what he says.

Jeeze louise, is Krazy Denny still around? I thought he got shuffled off to Montana or some such.

Emphasis on which word?

Steve Eggleston on May 13, 2013 at 10:41 AM

Emphasis on both words, Steve. Maybe not equal emphasis, depending on how close it is to 4:20PM.

Maybe for President of France.

Perhaps we’re in agreement on these two issues because there isn’t much room for disagreement on either of them.

Dennis doesn’t need a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

He has his insane moments but he is a shrewd pol who understands sausage-making political realities. He has constituencies, albeit small, scattered across the political spectrum, too, which isn’t easy to do. The fact he is jumping out front on these scandals should trouble Obama deeply.

Oh good! Finally, somebody even more moderate than Romney! How long till the NRO and Weekly Standard and RNC start pushing him for 2016?

I believe we’re entitled to the IRS employees names and addresses.
We can send them some information on ethics and honesty.
Then, after a sufficient period, we can visit them to check and see if they learned anything.
There is no statute of limitations on STUPID and CORRUPT.

Dennis Kucinich is a little … out there. But he’s always been fairly honest. For a politician.

“Look, we went into Benghazi under the assumption that somehow there was going to be a massacre in Benghazi. So we went there to protect the Libyan people. We couldn’t go in to protect our own Americans who were serving there? I’m offended by this, and there has to be real answers to the questions being raised.”

This point is devastating… The Military is using as an excuse they didn’t do anything because they didn’t want to put any Military personnel in peril to save American’s… But they didn’t have any problem doing the same helping Alqueda in Libya… WTF… Why is Mr. Kucinich the only one asking this… There is no answer to this by anybody… Other then what’s that Hillary & Obama wanted…

Juan just laughs, and laughs while acting like he is the most clueless person on earth…

He is the Eugene McCarthy of our era.

dverplank on May 13, 2013 at 9:05 PM

Well, that’s the LAST we’ll hear from Mr. Kucinich.
Dennis, a word of advice, if anyone, ANYONE gives you an important message to head for Ft. Marcy Park … DON’T GO!

And America? How’s that Hope and Change, moving FORWARD working for ya NOW?
52% morons.

And the Manure Spreading Media? Go phuck yourselves. With a vengeance.

Missilengr on May 13, 2013 at 11:08 PM

About what I expect from Kucinich. If there is too much to ignore, Kucinich won’t.
