Clinton Shouts: 'What Difference Would It Make?' ("Should'a, could'a, would'a" redux)
The Blog / The Weekly Standard ^ | Jan 23, 201 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 01/23/2013 9:22:17 AM PST by E. Pluribus Unum

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 would 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?"

If that’s not a backhanded admission of guilt, I don’t know what is???

What difference does it how Vince died. Natural causes or homicide. Why should we care. He’s dead. Let’s move on.

It proves the intellectual ability to reason through crisis. Shooting protesters is what tyrants do.

The difference is that the video was out of your control, whereas, the other scenario is 100% your fault and you should be fired.

What difference does it make. If you had been doing your job instead of jet setting around acting like some future president, it would have made a hell of a lot of difference. This hag has no business even being mentioned as the next president of this country. She is nothing but a glorified wash woman.

Maybe she could have said “I have a headache.”

People should leave Hildabeast alone, can’t you see she’s already suffered enough?/////

It makes a lot of difference. It is one thing to have the attack occur, it is another to not respond ... all the while watching on closed circuit TV. God knows, and was present as they watched for 7 hours and did nothing. The Father will repay. All the same the answers are to established and penalties demanded. It is not allowed for it to all be cast off with the response 'what difference does it make"

IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. MO!

Both she and her so-called husband should both be in prison for the numerous felonies and traitorous acts committed while they lived in the White House.

That's like saying, "What difference does it make how Vince Foster died or who killed him . . . the important thing is to bury him." She is absolutely disgusting.

Let’s say the police answer a call at the home of a married couple. The husband is dead and has obviously been shot. They ask the wife “How did this happen?” and she replies “My husband is dead! How can you ask me such questions? What difference does it make?”

Think that would be good enough for them?

She is caught in the big lie...there never was any protest in Benghazi...it was just a smokescreen to cover up a terrorist attack before the election. Perhaps the one grain of truth coming in her testimony was she didn’t write the talking points for Susan Rice’s tour of Sunday talk shows...these lies came directly from the White House. However she helped to perpetrate the cover-up and was likely involved in the movement of weapons from Libya to Syrian rebels that Ambassador Stevens was overseeing from Benghazi. The whole thing is a big lie concocted from the White House.

What difference does it make?

Really, Ms. Clinton.

It goes to show whether you lied or not.
It matters whether you did your job or not.
It goes to show whether you can be trusted in a leadership position, now or ever again.
What did you do with all those intelligence reports that were made available for you?
Did you act on them or did you not want to be bothered.
Do you trust Americas enemies more than our own people?

If a Republican was in the hot seat and you were on the panel, I'm sure you would have a long string of questions and accusations.

It does indeed make a difference Ms. Clinton. Now answer the questions!

This was your 3 AM call, Hillary. How did you handle it? We want to know.

This is the first time I've heard of this line.

A protest by Senator Ron Johnson is being blamed for the attack?

Shrillary screamed that it doesn’t matter how it happened, but that it’s imperative that we find out how to prevent it from happening again.

Wouldn’t you think that the first step toward preventing something from happening again is finding the reason it occurred in the first place?

Can’t wait for that movie about young Hillary as the heroine of Watergate, fearlessly getting to the bottom of the two bit burglary in which nobody died.

Because they did not have to die...and the fact that her and obama covered up the truth is evidence that they were aware of that fact...so continue to dig and then impeach, and try for treason...

The father of one of those killed said that Hillery told him at the memorial that they were going to find and punish the maker of that video. What’s most disturbing to me is what that shows she thinks about the 1st ammendment.

If the married couple is the Clintons and there is a dead body in the house the police will drop to their knees, pull out their steno pads, and say “please tell us what to put in our report”.

I wonder if any of the Senators told Clinton that they were having a difficult time suspending their disbelief in her testimony?

The Hil has nothing but contempt for Congress trying to find out the truth. Remember her “I’m sorry, but I don’t recall”?

She is protecting her boss. In a sane world, they both would be looking for jobs now.

What difference does it make? She and 0bama were worried that it would make a difference in the election. That is why she was and is lying her fat ass off. A week before the 9/11 attack on Benghazi 0bama and the democrats were dancing on the grave of Al Queda.

LOL! She says it doesn’t matter, but just after it happened all she could talk about was “the video, the video.” It seemed to matter a great deal then.

She, the Pres__ent and Rice all lied. And the first two did so in front of the caskets of the fallen. THAT’s What difference it makes!!!!! LIARS, despicable liars. I don’t care WHAT piece of classified report says, I don’t have a need to know that. What I do want is the truth...and not some perpetuated lie to go on for weeks when we all knew it was a lie. Its a pattern of deception that galls me, always has. And the utter disrespect for the fallen, their families and the American people to think we couldn’t see through it. That’s what freaking difference it makes. NO QUARTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not for ANY of them. Rand Paul is dead on.

Dear Hillary

A SEAL may have no problem dieing for their Country

I think dieing for a Politician is not what they signed up for ... is there a new Oath that I am unaware of?

Nevermind ... she (like 0 zero) thinks she is the Country

As SoS, it’s your JOB to know which it was. As head diplomat you have to know why everyone does anything.
Get out, Hillary!. No POTUS for you.

Not if you are a progressive. Actually analyzing reality is a waste of time to progressives. It is much more important to describe how reality as made you feel.
