Durbin: Benghazi hearings one of Clinton’s ‘finer moments’

Ben Wolfgang

A top Senate Democrat believes Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s duel appearances last week on Capitol Hill, in which she clashed with Republicans over the Obama administration’s handling of the Sept. 11 Benghazi terrorist attacks, will go down in history as one of the secretary of state’s “finer moments.”

“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has done an extraordinary job for this country. It’ll be recognized by history. This was one of her finer moments,” Sen. Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat and member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”

But Mitt Romney didn't think this issue was worth challenging Obama during the General election.

Wouldn't want to offend those precious Independents...aye Mitt?

It was all made up drama and bullshit. Made for media, and low information voter(liberal senators) consumption.

These dems are delusional. That is why you can't argue with them. Their opponents (Read: Republicans) have no idea how to respond.

What difference does it make? Four Americans were slaughtered while the WH, the CIA and the Dept of Fairies did nothing. Repeated calls for backup from the two Seals on the scene went either denied or unanswered.

No answers to the numerous questions about this disaster have been made over four months after its occurrence.

The blood of those heroic Seals, the Ambassador, and Mr. Smith is on the hands of the Hilde-beast, the Anointed One, and the CIA.

Nothing the Socialists in Congress or the Lame-stream Media can change that!



Keep Faith with the Fallen of Benghazi! Let the Obama Regime, for once, tell the Truth!

Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coelum!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Hey President Nixon, tell us about your involvement in the Watergate burglary.

Nixon: "What difference does it make? Whether it was just a few guys out for a walk who decided to break in to an office or a planned burglary, so what? We need to focus on the future so it doesn't happen again."

Yeah, the press would have bought that one, or President G. W. Bush saying, "What difference does it make that we didn't find weapons of mass destruction?"

If that was Hillary at her best, would hate to see her at her worst. She has the mental capacity of a child.

__________________________________________

I defended this guy after he won the primary and was called a RINO and a Mittbot. Americans died and Romney said nothing. If any dead horse deserves to be beaten, it's this one.

I wonder when the time comes that Hillary has to account for her words and actions before God, if He will say to her, “What difference, at this point, does it make, Hillary?” I’ll bet that she begs for a do-over.

Absolutely infuriating cartoon in today's San Jose Mercury News. I don't seem to recall this cavalier attitude toward government corruption, malfeasance, cover-up, and dereliction of duty during Watergate.

Hillary kept mouthing off about the “video” that had caused the “demonstration” at Benghazi. I suppose the man who made the video is under arrest for his own protection. - She is not qualified to be in the kind of control that she has been installed in. - Where’s Obama in all this? - Who retired Hillary’s huge campaign debt at this juncture, and why?

Dirty Dick Durbin underestimates Hillary. I’d say a better moment was silencing Vince Foster during Bill’s first term.

Deputy White House counsel Vince Foster was found dead in Fort Marcy Park off the George Washington Parkway in Virginia, outside Washington, D.C., on July 20, 1993. His bruised and bullet ridden body was ruled death by suicide.

And Little Big Horn was one of Custer’s finest moments, too.

Face it, the Hillabeast has no talent except one...she knew who to boink in order to become famous.

Really, what would this bimbo do in the real world?

Really Dick? One of her finer moments? The fact she has to wear glasses for double vision from a drunken(my opinion) fall?

The slogan WHAT DOES IT MATTER will forever follow her.

No I didn’t read the article. Having Durbin and Clinton in the same headline is just to much for me to read.
