You've heard this, of course. Now hear it again. All of it.
The legacy line out of this tantrum clearly is
"WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?"
But you've been bamboozled.
Let's look at the fuller statement:
"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 that theyd they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?
(You'll have to fill in the hysterics)
But then here comes the part no one paid attention to:
It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.
Huh? It is?
That was the point of the hearings.
On the one hand Clinton said that it didn't matter what caused it but then asserts that it's necessary to learn what caused it. Then she insists that we need to keep it from ever happening again but we can't keep it from happening again if we don't know what caused it. Saying "what difference...does it make?" about the cause is a pure dismissal of Clinton's involvement (or lack of involvement) in the attack and dismisses the event itself. Then she hits the "reset" button immediately and seizes control of the exchange by asserting that we need to determine the cause of the event that she just dismissed.

It was of course, neither of these, but they are presented as a false dichotomy of having to have been one or the other. This wasn't accidental, and was intended to prop up the "protest over a video" line.
swillary is channeling Saul Alinsky!
...something else I noticed that the news pundits always get wrong....she was never under oath during that particular testimony ...(the what difference rant). In other words she also could lie like a prayer rug.
Her little temper tantrum tactic worked. The sheepish little CongressCritters sat idly in their seats when they should’ve stood up and said “WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN ‘WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE’?”.. Men have been beaten so badly into submission by sensitivity training that they can’t even vocalize their anger anymore. She should NOT have gotten a pass on this, but she did.
Indeed, but we’ll see how Egypt handles Hillary and 0bama. They’re both charged with inciting violence via the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The MB goes on trial starting January 28th.. Let’s see what interesting things happen between now and the 28th, let alone after that point. The MB has vowed to ‘spill the beans’ on those two if the U.S. doesn’t act to re-legitimize the MB in Egypt.
She and Bill have been shills for the Muslim Brotherhood for a long time. Soetoro is probably a card-carrying member. His administration is totally infiltrated.
Apparently, they have done nothing to correct it. Rather; they have done everything to cover it up.
There is a big semantic difference between “what happened,” and “what caused.” Hillary chooses her words carefully. She is a well-seasoned weasel.
exactly. It was neither of those things and she knew it.
I noticed Hillary’s little caveat when it was first played on the news. Doesn’t matter, though. The GOP has it’s perfect soundbite of Hillary screaming the main line. Put that together with some of Obama’s greatest hits (e.g. “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Period.”) and you’ve got the ingredients of a great PAC ad going after the Democrats as a group. Just keep hammering the public with it, and it will be effective.
Senator should have responded to Hillary:
The difference, Madame Secretary, is THE TRUTH!
And the American people and this Senate deserve and DEMAND THE TRUTH!
The difference, Madame Secretary, is that this was important enough for Susan Rice, The President, and YOU, TO LIE ABOUT SOME BOGUS VIDEO!
The difference, Madame Secretary, is that in spite of the fact nobody had any way of knowing how long the attack would last, and yet FORCES PREPARED TO EFFECT A RESCUE WERE ORDERED TO STAND DOWN!
Madame Secretary, because you come before this body, and arrogantly and loudly proclaim that you do not recognize what difference it makes, I DEMAND THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR RESIGNATION, IMMEDIATELY!
Watching the whole clip reminded me of OJ claiming he was going to find Nicole’s killer.
I hear ya.
Like “Under Oath” would make her tell the truth!!
......something she couldn’t duck come 2016
The deck is stacked...as far as who get's to ask the questions.
Unless the dummies,.,...I mean Pubbies grow a spine and some eggs.
Billary has always been good at doublespeak and employ it Liberally to bambooozal the ignorant
