If you want one reason to vote for Republicans in the Midterms, allow me to present California Democrat Ted Lieu.
After the New York Times’ failed smear of UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Lieu – who clearly didn’t read beyond the headline – tweeted out this:
This is not okay. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on @HouseForeign Chairman @RepEdRoyce to hold an oversight hearing on @StateDept spending on @nikkihaley and her deputy. https://t.co/c2ipX1s79d
— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) September 14, 2018
So, Lieu wants Congress to investigate Nikki Haley and her deputy because the Obama Administration spent so much money on curtains.
Now, I expect this kind of stupid from the likes of David Hogg.
But Lieu is supposedly an attorney as well as a sitting member of the House of Representatives.
You just can’t fix this kind of stupid.
And when the Daily Caller kindly pointed out his error…
Well @tedlieu, did you read the article? If you did you would have seen the fact that the 6th paragraph states:
“A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.”

…Ted doubled down.
Yes I did read the article. That’s why I wrote the tweet that way. I’m calling for an oversight hearing on State Department spending on Nikki Haley and her Deputy. There should be bipartisan support for this hearing.

“That’s why I wrote the tweet that way?”
Because you know it wasn’t Nikki Haley or her deputy?
“Yes, I read the article and saw it was Samantha Power and the Obama Administration, that’s why I want us to investigate Nikki Haley and her deputy.”
That’s not just dumb.
That’s Ted Lieu dumb.
Now, as a rule, I rarely if ever use the word “retarded” as an insult, but for Ted Lieu, I’m willing to make an exception.
Lieu is giving us a peek into the kind of nonsensical “investigations” Democrats would launch should they regain control of the House.
Do we really want a Congress that is willing to waste millions of dollars chasing after phantom “scandals” just to make President Trump and his Administration look bad?
It doesn’t matter to Lieu that the New York Times was forced to retract their story’s main theme: i.e. that these curtains had anything whatsoever to do with Nikki Haley.
If Congress is really going to waste time and money investigating every Fake News smear that comes down the transom, they’ll not only have no time to do anything else, but they’d have to sacrifice every recess from now until 2024.
Now, I realize that Ted Lieu is a borderline nitwit.
But if they regain the House, Democrats will have no choice but to place borderline nitwits in positions of power on House committees. They’ll have to. Because, let’s be honest, since borderline nitwits make up the bulk of the House Democrat caucus, they won’t have enough sane people to chair committees.
Ted Lieu is a living, breathing reminder that Democrats are unserious people — with gross emotional problems and the intellectual maturity of a seven-year-old.
And just like the clowns of the Senate Democrat caucus, House Democrats will make a mockery of the Legislative Branch and use their power for mud-slinging, smears, and demagoguery — not to mention raising our taxes, undermining our national sovereignty while putting illegals ahead of the American people.
So if you have a mind to stay home on election day, just picture Ted Lieu in charge of something.
You have the power to make certain that never happens.
You have the power to relegate Ted Lieu to the obscurity he so richly deserves.
