Kevin McCarthy, the man Republicans are looking at to be the next Speaker, just handed Hillary Clinton a campaign commercial and gave the left-media their newest talking point. McCarthy actually admitted that the Benghazi committee was designed to hurt Hillary Clinton politically and the left is having a field day.
Never mind that the committee is trying to uncover exactly what happened and what went wrong in Benghazi. McCarthy openly saying this damages that effort. This is the man Republicans want to be Speaker of the House. He is shallow and unprincipled and is showing what an opportunist he is willing to be. Conservatives in the House call him transactional — meaning they think they can do business with him — but at what price?
When Kevin McCarthy was Whip, he had a series of high profile fails in whipping for Boehner. Now, as he wants to transition to Speaker, he’s putting his foot in his mouth and undermining the work of the Republican majority.
It’s all downhill from here.
