Skip to comments.RAND PAUL TO HILLARY CLINTON: I Would Have Fired You Over Benghazi
Posted on 01/23/2013 8:53:49 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul turned the heat up on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday during her Senate hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attacks, telling her that he would have relieved her from her post if he had been president when the attacks occurred.
"I think it's inexcusable," he said, adding that he takes her stepping down from the Secretary of State post as her accepting "the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11."

He and Ron Johnson were the only two that had the guts to go after Hilary
WHAT DIFERENCE DOES IT MAKE NOW... it was election time, and they were covering up the facts..that’s what matters.
AGAIN, LET’s BE REMINDED OF WHAT HAPPENED:
* Four Americans dead, including an ambassadress who begged for more security and didn’t get it.
* The Obama administration WATCHED and DID NOTHING while the consulate was under seige.
* The Obama administration (with the help of the State department ) concocted A LIE regarding the cause of the terrorist attack.
Given the above facts, what should the punishment be?
Clearly better than dad.
Wow. Just heard the clip on Chris Plante Show (WMAL). He gets new respect from me.
Mc Cain hammered her pretty good also.

His opening attack on Hillary was not productive- though it was most enjoyable.
His questions were very good though. 99% of the germane questions were the three from Paul.
Good job Senator Paul!
She looked like she was boiling inside. Not used to being spoken to publicly like that...
Very enjoyable to watch, thanks for posting.
He gets new respect from me.
Apparently, Evita doesn’t have an FBI file on HIM! :)
I have an associate who was a big part of Johnson’s campaign team, and he assures me that Ron Johnson is the real deal. I hope he becomes a bigger and bigger part of the scene.
He is over 60, rich, and doesn’t give a damn, because he doesn’t need the job. That’s exactly the kind of Senators we need.
And kudo’s to Rand Paul too.
But it was all in vain as they just made a statement and then she countered with a statement and then moved on to the next senator. I was expecting it to be like a cross examination at a trial where they would ask a question and demand an answer and then move on to the next question. Someone mentioned it in another thread that this is all smoke and mirrors and Kabuki theatre.
THE STUNNING HYPOCRISY OF HILLARY CLINTON MAKES ME PHYSICALLY ILL!!!
Rand Paul looked Medusa right in the eye and nailed her failure as SOS.
He is a true American.
He was the only one who took her on fearlessly.
Everyone else worried about the file on them that Hillary had.
I don’t know how Hillary will be able to sit down this afternoon after her ample rear end was kissed so much by so many.
The Senate is a joke.
Certainly in my long life time H. Clinton is by far the worst Secretary of state in history. Her policies and bad decisions have left the middle east in total and complete shambles. Egypt is now in the hands of terrorist ( and she approved $1.5 BILLION a year to help them?!!. Lybia is now in the hands of terrorists. Central Africa (Mali) is a terrorist stronghold— and getting stronger. Tunisia is at least fundamentalists if not terrorist.The Saudis promote killer Wahhabi groups in the United States!! Pakistan knowingly harbored Bin Laden next to their military base and its “OH HUM” to Hillary— No big deal— Give the PAKS some more printed money!!. She is the worst.
Yep. Or there’s not much really “usable” in it. Missed Ron Johnson’s comments. Maybe Rush’ll replay them.
He asked questions she failed to answer and she just said she disagreed with McCain. I was expecting Hilary to be grilled and not just a few talking points thrown at her where she would just ramble on not really saying anything.
