Shirk-retary of State, Hillary Clinton

February 1, 2014

Hillary doesn't care

This past week Hillary Clinton was speaking to auto dealers in New Orleans.  During the conference she was questioned regarding her time as Secretary of State.  The former first lady was asked specifically about her biggest regret.

Not unsurprisingly, Ms. Clinton cited Benghazi.  Said she, “My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi.”  She continued, “I mean, you know, you make these choices based on imperfect information.  And you make them to, as we say, the best of your ability.  But that doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.  It was a terrible tragedy, losing those four Americans, two diplomats, and….two CIA operatives.”

How very, very Hillary.  Yeah, she’s sorry but it’s not really her fault.  There was “imperfect information…..unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.”  Actually a bi-partisan Senate Intelligence Committee found the murders were quite avoidable.  In other words there was enough info available to have averted the “unforeseen” murders of our ambassador and three other heroic Americans.  The committee declared, “The attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya-to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets-and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. mission.”

So while the Senate statement was clear, citing “extensive intelligence”, 12 days later Ms. Clinton calmly, carefully used language designed to deflect blame for this deadly catastrophe.  It should be noted that Clinton’s recent serene response in New Orleans stands in stark contrast to her agitated, January 23, 2013, “What difference at this point does it make?”, reaction in D.C.  No doubt, over the last year, Hillary’s handlers have pointed out her screeching testimony has not polled well.

For the first time in over 35 years a United States Ambassador was murdered.  Three other courageous countrymen died with him.  Their killers remain free.  Witnesses to the firefight haven’t testified before Congress. No one was fired. Hillary’s specific timeline and actions during the attack remain murky.

Given the freshly exposed, damning evidence, and her overall history, what better way for Ms. Clinton to kick off her not so stealthy presidential campaign, than by avoiding responsibility for a throughly “preventable” deadly assault that took place under her watch?  And thus the presidential hopeful attempts to rewrite the history of her troubling tenure as Shirk-retary of State.

    The ambassador repeatedly and urgently requested more security. It reportedly was Hillary herself who repeatedly denied the requests.

    “Bloody Hands” Clinton must not get off this hook.

    Said she, “My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi.”

    Interesting….This statement is not logical…For weeks they stated the attack was due to a “video”, so, how does that equate into your “biggest regret”?…You are regretful for things that you should or shouldn’t have done, not for what someone else did..This statement right here shows that they were (as we all knew anyhow) lying the entire time..

    Great original terminology, Jim! You even made the NY Post mention it and credit you. This country is the greatest on earth, but I am amazed at the ignorance and short memories of so many voters. By the time 2016 elections roll around, Benghazi will be forgotten, as will the disgusting dalliances of Bill Clinton followed by outright lying to the American public and impeachment proceedings. The Shirkretary of State stood by her man, purely for political and personal gain. Think about this guy roaming the halls of the White House once again, looking for that special young intern…. and he is revered by the Democratic Party faithful, hoping for what? I’m not sure any young White House staffer will be safe from this duo. May God help us!!

    Given the high pitched, agitated tone of Hillary’s Senate “What difference does it make” testimony, we could also take to calling her Shriek-retary of State.

    When will Democratic inclined voters come to the realization that Hillary Clinton is an extremely poor choice as candidate for the Presidency? It is a huge difference, Madame Secretary! As shown in the writing, there was a multitude of positive directives to maximize security and safety. Four outright lies! Or were they just points of ineptness ? Never-the-less…Huge difference…. Huge! Is “what difference does it make” going to be the tag-line in a Hillary Presidency ? Are WE able to sustain ourselves as a nation and a people when, with any and every policy or crisis, WE will be hearing those words “what difference does it make”? Democrat and Independent voters…..Choose wisely because it will make a difference!

    We know how the Shirk-retary would answer that phone call in the middle of the night..”Wrong number!”
