Oliver North Shatters World Hypocrisy Record

Hide your irony meters, folks. Oliver North, who exists as a public figure only because he carried out a secret plot to sell weapons to terrorists, lied about it, tried to cover it up and was convicted of multiple felonies for it, says that President Obama is “capable of obscuring, obfuscating, covering up, like nothing I’ve ever seen.”

North said there are several issues that should have been investigated thoroughly.

“I know that if you convene a select committee, they will get to the bottom of it. … Why the dickens haven’t we convened a select committee to investigate Benghazi, the IRS enemies list, spying on Americans, threatening reporters?”

He said Washington Republicans also have lacked leadership on some issues.

“My concern is if they don’t appoint a select committee to investigate these high crimes we will never get to the bottom of it. … This crowd is capable of obscuring, obfuscating, covering up, like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”

A select committee. You mean like the one you lied to when you testified? The one you shredded documents to make sure they didn’t get? That kind of committee? And the cure, of course, is Ronald Reagan.

The absence of leadership in Washington is creating major problems, unlike when Ronald Reagan was in the White House, said North, who currently is the host of “War Stories with Oliver North” on Fox News Channel.

“We need him; we need a president like that. We currently have what I described this morning when I was addressing this great group as a ‘leadership deficit disorder’ in Washington, D.C.”

Someone get the Guiness Book of World Records on the phone. And the EPA to make sure this cesspool of chutzpah isn’t a threat to the environment.

    To be fair, it was different when Reagan did it in not just one, but two critical ways:
    1. Reagan.
    2. Obama.

    Justice Department sour ces tell us Liddy once held his hand over a burning candle until the flame scared through the flesh of his hand and bur ned the nerve …

    Meh. Gordon Liddy could do anything Oliver North could, and…hold his hand over a candle flame until the flesh charred.

    For those born after the dark ages, Gordon Liddy was the head of the Watergate breakin squad and another convicted felon.

    As noted before, it doesn’t take much to be a rightwing hero. Liddy, North, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones etc.. A felony conviction or two, and dubious cognitive functioning seems to help a lot.

    unlike when Ronald Reagan was in the White House, said North,..

    The Beirut Barracks Bombings (October 23, 1983, in Beirut, Lebanon) occurred … Sketch map of the route taken by the suicide bomber on the morning of October 23, 1983. ….. A Beirut Memorial has been established at Marine Corps Base Camp …. Death Toll at 161 Americans;

    The one who cut and run in Lebanon after a suicide bomber killed a mere 161 marines? (Which BTW, was the right decision.) This is equivalent to 40 Benghzis. Using GOP logic we should dig up Reagan and impeach him.

    President Obama is “capable of obscuring, obfuscating, covering up, like nothing I’ve ever seen.”

    Well of course. That’s why there’s no evidence.

    Somebody misspelled “Whore.” (I mean that in the P. J. O’Rourke A Parliament of Whores sense.)

    raven, you failed to add that St. Ronnie then took on someone more like his own size,: Grenada.

    Why the dickens haven’t we convened a select committee to investigate Benghazi, the IRS enemies list, spying on Americans, threatening reporters?”

    wait… they did. more than once IIRC.

    the GoP just didn’t like the answers that resulted from the investigations.

    they like to think reality is like a crapshoot… if you just keep tossing the dice, you can get a different result!

    Well of course. That’s why there’s no evidence.

    exactly.

    also why republicans fail at science.

    That’s it. I’ve had it with these cheesy chrome vanadium steel clad irony meters! Next one will be unobtainium/adamantium/leaverite alloy. Nothing else will last around these supernova class knuckleheads!

    Has anyone looked into that shifty ‘Obama’ (or whatever name he goes by these days) feller’s alibi for where he was on 9/11? Why isn’t the media investigating THAT, huh?? He probably had something to do with the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, too. And the New Coke fiasco. And, that time my yard got TP’ed back in ’84, too. There’s literally an endless list of things he’s probably responsible for that nobody has the balls to check into. Not unless they wanna end up like Dead Breitbart.

    (honestly, I think what pisses them off is that Barry is a better Republican than they are, and they can’t fucking stand it.)

    “Oliver North Shatters World Hypocrisy Record”

    He’s broken his own record, originally set in the 1980′s more times than Zsa-Zsa Gabor, etc., has been married. Although they’ve both made a pretty good living out of fucking other people, they are not much alike. In fact one of the major differences between them is that Zsa-Zsa is an intelligent and accomplished human being.

    Au contraire, dingojack:

    She is,.at 97 years of age, still kicking (albeit with only one leg).

    Back when she was a staple on various talk shows in the mid 1960′s, my dad used to refer to her as “The Hungarian Whore” (he thought better of her sister, Eva. The Gabor sisters were the protoHiltons.

    Zsa-Zsa would never make my list of TWHB*, but I’d take her over Ollie North (or that hag, Mother Theresa) any day of the week.

    If he’s so good at it, then how do you know about it? And if he’s so evil, how are you still alive and talking about it? If he’s so ruthless and tyrannical, why is he such a pussy on Russia vs. Ukraine? Which is it?

    The logic escapes me.
