Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked about ascertaining whether the Benghazi terror attack was the result of a protest by Senator Ron Johnson. "What difference, at this point, does it make?" Clinton shouted, seemingly losing her cool. "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?"
Comments: What a shocking display of indifference. The Democrats treat her like a delicate flower and all they want to discuss is the alleged lack of funding for security in Benghazi. It is sickening to watch.
Rand Paul just shocked me and smacked PIAPS good. The only problem is, Herself can claim that lie of "transparency," while saying she accepts responsibility, yet won´t quit in disgrace. can´t have that in her 2016 resume.
Why am I torturing myself listening to this cheap political drama?
The DIFFERENCE it makes is that you lied - as often as you could so as to protect yourself and the poseur that hired you. A terrorist attack during a presidential campaign is not ideal, so the video lie was projected far and wide. You refused the ambassador the security he asked for, and your boss refused help three times once the attack was underway.
It sounds to me like this woman has gone off the deep end. What difference does it make? Every bit it we can learn something that will help keep other Americans safe. It makes a great deal of difference if this administration is going to hunt down and prosecute the killers. It makes a difference if this was a set-up, or a botched running deal, like some have posited. It makes every bit of difference to the family members that have lost loved ones. It makes a difference if you could have foreseen a problem, didn´t act, then continued along as if nothing happened (rather than resigning in disgrace). Hillary Clinton is a laughingstock that rode the coattails of her husband to the Peter Principle pedestal.
The difference it makes is the key, Hillary. Did you lie, along with Susan and Obama and all the rest, to cover up things having gone wrong? Were you hiding behind a pre-arranged cover story, like it appears? Were you aware - contrary to what you claim, but should have known - that there was a credible threat to the embassy there? Why scream about if it matters - this was your offered explanation. Yeah, it matters. It establishes whether or not you´re a liar.
4 murdered Americans and she has the nerve to ask what difference it makes? One could ask that here in Chicago, when children are gunned down in the streets by gang bangers, what difference does it make, they are dead, nothing is gonna change that, just let it go? And as it being personal, "you betcha" she along with obama are both personally responsible for what happened in Benghazi.
What difference does it make who killed the American ambassador and his staff? What difference does it make why they were killed?
Unbelievable. This confirms what many of us have long suspected, that Hillary is not the brightest bulb in the room.
According to our secretary of state it doesn´t matter who killed the Americans or why. They might as well have been victims of an armed robbery. The only thing that matters is that they are dead and Hillary is moved to tears about it.
The outcome of this hearing will set a serious and long-term precedent for our country. Congress must not be intimidated by Hillary´s histrionics and the public must not be swayed by the Leftist media´s interpretation.
Hillary thought it made a difference when she made up the story about the video to avoid telling the truth. Lying to the public when you hold an office of public trust makes a difference Hillary. I wish you had some integrity, and were able to tell the truth, but you don´t.
It makes all the difference in the World, because the Obama policies in the Middle East have promoted the agenda of the terrorists, including AlQueda, made martyrs out of hoodlums, filled the area with weapons of all types, created massive unrest in that part of the World, caused the deaths of thousands of people, many innocent of anything, supported the overthrow of Governments in other Countries to the detriment of the U.S., ( Is that treason ? ), given all the Islamic radicals more cause to hate Americans and other similar nations, and essentially given ALL of the disparate groups a common cause to band together AGAINST us. and we still send millions, if not billions, of dollars to Countries that for decades were our allies and have turned into our enemies. Obama has unleashed He@@ on Earth and calls it an Arab Spring, as if it is a grand renewal of these people´s love and respect for the U>S>. He is a terribly ignorant man responsible for misery, death, destruction, and hatred for millions of people.(All my opinion ),
I watched some of this live on ABC and astounded by the Democrat suck-ups. I was also distracted by the person sitting on her right who was constantly adjusted her prayer shawl. Can anyone say who that was? Was it Houma Abedin?
The difference it makes, Madam Secretary,is whether you are credible or not. You stood, along with the President, over the coffins of the dead and discussed a movie as the cause, not an organized terrorist attack. We must know why you did that - that is the difference it makes.
This is why the libtards wanted to get out front on this by having the senate - controlled by libtards - do the dog and pony show. The house should be grilling her, without all the flowery excess verbiage - just get to the heart of the documented lies and require answers for where are the survivors, what caliber ammo was used, who gave the stand-down orders, where did the weapons come from for the terrorists, and why is that video guy in jail, etc...
To quote the late senator Tom Lantos, "with an infinitely more distinguished public record than yours, Admiral Boorda committed suicide when he may have committed a minor mistake." To quote the Bible, "go thou and do likewise".
I am astounded. "What difference does it make ?" she asks ????
What difference does anything make to these people ? For one thing, our country´s sons and daughters are being sent out under the command of the United States government and they DESERVE to be protected as much as possible. Did the ambassador get support he deserved or was his cry for help swept under the rug for political expediency ?
She´s there to answer questions and see where they might lead. It does not matter if SHE thinks they are relevent or not.
I wish someone had the guts to say "just answer the questions Mrs Clinton".
HRC has always been a bad actress, and she lies with impunity. She knows she will skate on the Benghazi issue, and her screaming / crying the part isn´t even passable it´s so bad. I continue to be disgusted.
It is impossible to get to the truth with a Clinton. They are masters of self righteous anger in order to cover up their failings. Wouldn´t it be refreshing to hear the truth? But, we won´t hear the truth from her.
The difference between a chance at the presidency and losing her power.
As long as she can dance around the responsibility and go on the offensive (that means shout the questioner down, when you don´t like the question), she can run for President and list all her amazing accomplishments, like closing the barn door after the diplomats are dead, things like that. Now we will be reading ad nauseum how much she personally is doing to beef up security in all our embassies, so the tragedy that she had nothing to do with causing, never happens again.
Mrs Clinton can yell all she wants. The U.S. State Dept was derelict in its duty to respond to numerous pleas for help from our officials in Lybia and people died because of the inaction. PURPOSEFUL inaction over months. The Democrats NEVER want to tell the truth or take responsibility for their action or lack thereof. Blame it all on anything else than other than THEMSELVES. What is almost as bad is the awful possibility that this was caused by the Administration "plot" to give/sell arms to terrorists in that region. WHERE ARE THE SURVIVORS of this incident and why are they being completely held incognito. It seems incomprehensible that none will talk publicly, so what is going on?
With ALL DUE RESPECT, Ms. Clinton, and that isn´t much, this Administration attempted to downplay the cause and got caught BIG TIME. We want answers. If you continue to act like a petulent child we will have to put you in restraints! NOW ANSWER the QUESITON!
Officially and repeatedly blaming it on a video most muslims had never heard of made a heck of alot of difference to the dozens of people killed and injured in the ensuing riots in other muslim countries, a life or death difference in fact. The blood of these are on the hands of Zippy and Butch of Benghazi as well and I wish just one of our Republican congress critters would point this out during the hearings.
Wow, imagine this intellect fielding unscripted questions. Someone on the panel should take the following approach, ´Madam, I understand why you are emotional about our questions, but make no mistake there will be a full, public, investigation into what happened. The ´difference´ could be manslaughter or incompetence. Now rather than talk about various directions in the future, let´s focus on exactly what you knew when this disaster happened.´
I listened to Hannity yesterday on the way home from work. He played clips of the PIAPS yelling her stupid what difference does it make line. The "smartest woman in the world" is nothing but a corrupt, lying, despicable piece of crud. Poster #45 had it right. Could you imagine herself answering rapid fire unscripted questions? BTW Hitlery it makes a BIG difference because people died and the Obamanation which you´re a part of lied about it. Like I asked during your corrupt time as First Lady and carpetbagging Senator from New Yuck, What did you know and when did you know it?
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
