‘What Difference Does It Make?’ Activist Ambushes Hillary, Asks Her to Sign Book to ‘Chris Stevens’
Mediaite ^ | June 19, 2014 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 06/19/2014 5:40:58 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

As she exited her Hard Choices book event Tuesday in Washington, D.C., former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was approached by conservative activist Jason Mattera, who asked her to sign a copy of the book out to one of the four Americans who perished in the 2012 Benghazi attack.

“If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens,” Mattera asked, referring to the U.S. Ambassador to Libya who was a victim of the terrorist siege. “I think you knew him.”

After a brief pause, Clinton responded, “Yeah, I’m not going to make it out to Chris Stevens.”

“What difference does it make?” Mattera responded, referencing the former secretary’s remarks from a January 2013 Senate hearing on the Benghazi attacks.

“I think it would be great if you read it,” she said in return.

As Mattera was dismissed by Clinton’s aide and security, he remarked, “It’s kind of odd that you have more security than Chris Stevens had in Benghazi.”

Now that’s the spirit.

The only downside is that his purchase of this book was a significant boost to the sales figures, given how miserable they’ve been.

Gov. Palin sold about five times as many of her first book in the first week, IIRC.

Great! But this guy was probably lucky that the Secret Service didn't give him a beating that he'd never forget.If I was that guy I hope that I would have responded to her “I think it would be great if you read it” with “I don't have to,I've read Rules For Radicals”.

That made me nostalgic for the day I got to yell at Hillary a bunch of times. My recap was long since deleted, but the Wayback Machine works miracles!

To: all

Boy did I have a great time! What a bunch of out of shape freepers we have! But we ran and ran all day. You never know when you'll get another chance to yell right in Hillary's face again as long as you live. Rather than post another recap, I'll add my favorite recollections to the many highlights already cited:

After Lazio signed my poster, I was waiting to get Rudy's signature, but the rising boos made me realize that Hillary was wandering by. I'm not sure how, but I managed to get swept over the barricades and wound up right in the middle of her "March of the Damned"! I was strolling down the avenue, parallel to Hillary, only about ten feet to the right of her, Mark Green and Chuckie Schumer. Despite the fact that I was holding two "Lazio for Senate" signs (one of which was adorned with a beautiful "Go Home Hillary" sticker), and despite the fact that every few steps I would look to my immediate left and yell "Are you still here Hillary! I thought I told you to go home!", I somehow managed to walk right next to her for about four blocks. It got to the point where I started thinking to myself that some SS guy was probably going to shoot me, so I would quickly turn and yell "You should be in prison!" because I wanted to get in a good taunt before my bullet riddled body hit the pavement. Finally, I saw a guy on the far side of Hillary point at me and yell something to the gang. Moments later, I received a rather polite (all things considered) body check towards the barricades and a menacing command, "Stay on the sidewalk!" I got off pretty easy.

I returned to the crowd of Freepers, and enjoyed the fun while obeying the rules. We ran up ahead of her again and again, and found new spots to yell at her. Some corners were not so effective, but every once in awhile you'd get a clear shot. My personal favorite was when I was standing next to this old gentleman who yelled "Hillary!" and waved. She looked at him, pretended to like him, smiled and waved. The band got eerily quiet just for a moment as she looked right at us, so I held up my sign and yelled "You're a crook Hillary! Get out of here! Get lost!" Hillary never let her phoney smile wilt, but Mark Green pointed at me and chastised me with a petulant whine of "Nice. Nice."

Later on, we switched to the shady side of the street, and waited for her again. This time we were on Chuckie Schumer's side of the enormous Hillary balloon. I yelled "Hey Upchuck! She's a crook and you know it!". He hunched his shoulders, donned a feeble shakey smile, and gave a limp-wristed spastic wave, but he's been doing that since he was elected, so I have no idea if he heard me.

Now I'm tired, and I don't want to type anymore. Thanks to Alisasny, Dr. Raoul, kattracks, Clinton's a rapist, Critter, and all the Rudy and Lazio people. But thanks most of all to Hillary for showing her ugly mug and letting me yell at it. It was the nicest thing she's ever done for me.

Great time. It's a different world now, you don't get to yell at Hillary's face anymore. But at least I had the pleasure that day.

Gov. Palin sold about five times as many of her first book in the first week, IIRC.

When Palin came to the INDY area for her book tour, hundreds were lined up, some driving several hours to get here and waiting for 20 hours to see her.

If Hillary is getting more that a couple dozen at a time, you can bet we'd be seeing the pictures of it. The line would probably look like Jay Carneys Library books in that photo-op

Things like this change a lot of things. Keep it up ‘dead’. She is a wimp, but ‘what difference does it make’? It makes a lot of difference. Stevens is her Waterloo. And just maybe, Obama is the Dems Waterloo come November, 2014 and 2016. Gotta deal with the GOPe though, or it will mean nothing.
