Dianne Feinstein Says Benghazi Hearing Was Really About Discrediting Hillary Clinton
The Blaze ^ | 05-12-2013 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 05/12/2013 9:13:11 AM PDT by Kevin in California

Hillary Rotten Clinton has done a damn fine job of discrediting herself, Diane. And the MSM has done a damn fine job of covering it up.

‘What’s wrong with discrediting Hillary Clinton?’

Now, let’s be fair. I mean, really, how many people need to die before Hill the Shill might be able to be critized?

No it isn’t.

Our media is sold out.

The scandal is about bringing something back to life. Whether it is the current “media” or its newer, more responsible replacement, a change is needed.

Keep on speaking up Cruz. Palin, help out Mr. Cruz please.

It seems everyone else on “our” side is sleeping.

No, you dope. It was about trying to find out how four Americans were murdered while the high ups fiddled! The fact that Obama went to bed that night so he would be rested the next morning for his fundraising trip to Las Vegas - that’s enough to get him impeached - tossed out on his lying rearend. I am pissed in case you haven’t noticed.

And don’t even get me started on the murder and cover up of the Navy Seals.

And Sandy Hook was really about discrediting law-abiding NRA members and law-abiding gun owners.

Hey Dianne! Four Americans were murdered by your "Religion of Peace" pals while those FOUR AMERICANS were waiting for their countrymen to come help them. How did you commie libs respond? You gave Hillary a plague thanking her for her outstanding and wonderful "public service". You commies really piss me off. It's time for you to retire to go home and spend more time with your money.

Madame Feinstein needs to retire to CA and stay among like-minded people, instead of trying to foist her bizarre beliefs upon the rest of us. She is a multi-millionaire, so has no worries about normal day to day worries such as paying for shelter, food, medical, etc. Nope! She has all that and has plenty of time to spend trying to foist her belief system on the masses:

"Hello, lower classes. This is your superior, Senator Feinstein, and you should take note and do as I say:

Turn in your guns. I, of course, will keep mine, plus my security guard.

Benghazi? 4 dead Americans? No security? Lies and coverups? Absolutely nothing more than a Republican scam to undermine Hillary, and is either Bush or Chaney's fault.

Amnesty? Of course I am for Amnesty! How else can the US make up to these lawbreakers and give them the goodies and honor to which I believe they are entitled? Shut up and work harder , so we can pay for them."

And so on.....

To further that thought, discrediting Hillary is about letting Obama off the hook, and as long as someone has to go under the bus, why not a skank like Hillary? As long as Democrats choose to promote leaders based on their standing in the leftwing personality cult, they will continue giving us fools like Obama and Hillary, and bad things will happen. Obama was sleeping off a romp with one of his fudge packing pals, and Hillary didn’t worry about her Arab Spring friends. After all, her girlfriend was part of the Muslim Brotherhood.

They are proving Hillary’s guilt by defending her actions, and damning themselves at the same time. The only one responsible for Hillary’s actions is Hillary herself. She wasn’t up to the job of SS, and she certainly doesn’t qualify for president. We don’t need another corrupt liar in the WH.

Dianne, It has a lot to do with who allowed four (4) Americans to be murdered at the hands of Terrorist, and then not sending help.

However, Hillary Clinton could be more than discredited as a result of the hearings, and the investigation to follow.

It’s a side effect.

The Ben Ghazi hearings are really about Ben Ghazi and the unprecedented,unwarranted and immoral murderous neglect of our, not the State Department’s, not the White House’s to “do what they want with”, as if that is ever OK, but the United States’ embassy personnel in a foreign country to which they were assigned by representatives of the United States (the State Department).

It is also about those foreign countries’ observing how the US government treats is embassy people.

Then it’s about the US Government explaining to the families what happened. And that does not mean what some might think it means, that they cannot explain it because in so doing they will incriminate themselves far beyond what anyone has ever incriminated themselves with in this country. No. It means that the government, by means of extraction of testimony by the Congress, willing and able to face up to these horrible people by stepping away from the golf course and putting the cocktail down and finding out what was supposed to happen, what did happen, why there was a deviation, and what will happen as a result.

And it is about reassuring the American people that there will be a return to normal of the Government’s taking care of its embassy people as evidenced by the just and swift sanctioning of those who failed the embassy in Ben Ghazi.

Hillary will do her best, as will her minions, and that includes the likes of the GOP establishment, that this is all about her, but it is not. The only thing she has to do with it is that she and her bad moral character were part of its orchestration and cover up. And that’s a lot. So she’ll be very involved in the aftermath.

But her narcissism will have half the country spinning this to be about her.

Only the very sober and focused will be able to ignore her, and that’s what it will take.

— Then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jan. 23, 2013:

“I wasn’t involved in the talking points process.... As I understand it, as I’ve been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the State Department, all participated, to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available, and it was an intelligence product.”

“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 who decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”—Hillary Clinton

Benghazi Jay's ears can't believe the bs he is spreading at this outhouse press mugging conference.

"With new details emerging in the Benghazi-gate controversy, the White House held a background discussion with more than a dozen news organizations. Shown below is Herr Obozo pleading with his out house mediots to save his butt!"

Thanks DiFiswine. Love Hilebea$t.

The Hearings may indeed discredit Hillary, but that is not their purpose. Three questions need to be asked and answered before this story goes away.

1) Why was the consulate not better protected (may be a reasonable answer in the end...or not. This crap going around about inadequate funding is a joke.)?

2)Why didn’t the President send help when the poop started hitting in Benghazi? (I’m sure this will be passed off as ‘it was too dangerous’ but, my opinion is Obama left them flapping in the wind so his reelection bid would not be damaged—I doubt this is provable, unfortunately).

3) Why were we lied to following the attack as it relates to a silly video? (My guess is this is the only question that will actually nail the administration. It won’t bring it down, but it will definitely do damage).

You must mean for her to retire to San Francisco where her "like minded people" reside. There are plenty of us in CA who'd love to see this harridan out of politics forever -- unfortunately not enough of us to overcome her big-city voting base.

The Sisterhood is rallying around Hillary, its goddess. We've already been lectured to lay off Hillary by San Francisco feminist icon "Popeye" Pelosi. If the noose really starts to tighten around Hillary's neck we can expect a thermonuclear-level radical feminist outburst.

Dear Ms Feinstein:

The point is to discredit those responsible for the egregious event in Benghazi. The captain of that ship happens to be Ms. Clinton. The admiral of that fleet is BO.

You libs are all about assigning blame and responsibility for every untoward event in life (think malpractice, personal injury, tort law in general), no matter how far fetched.

That is unless you happen to be explicitly in charge of the reigns of power. Then, you bear no responsibility for anything at all.

Cake and eat it, anyone?
