On Saturday’s broadcast of “Justice w/Judge Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel, host Jeanine Pirro raised the possibility that Democrats in the House to not want to use the Republican-appointed Select Committee on Benghazi as a way to distract from President Barack Obama’s unpopular health care reform law shows that they’re afraid of what could come out of those hearings.
“You know, they have to be afraid of something,” Pirro said. “For Democrats to even consider not participating in the select hearings on Benghazi, something the Dems could easily say happened two years ago, on the other side of the globe that affected just four people — a hearing that would overshadow the ongoing ObamaCare debacle that affects the health and pocketbook of literally millions of Americans today tells me that the Democrats have something to hide.
“Now, the Democrats could if there were indeed nothing to Benghazi trumpet, ‘We will you there is nothing there,’” she continued. “Hearings in fact would obscure the Democrats’ biggest vulnerability in 2014 – ObamaCare, the issue that has brought Obama his lowest approval ratings. So if the Dems can muddy up the waters of ObamaCare disaster with something they say is a nonissue, why would they object? What do they have to lose? It’s a win/win for them.”
