Hillary Hires ‘Dude, This Was Like Two Years Ago’ Aide To Help With Book Roll-Out
The Daily Caller ^ | May 30, 2014 | Alex Pappas

As she prepares to answer questions about the Benghazi attacks of 2012, Hillary Clinton has hired former Obama aide Tommy Vietor to help with the roll out of her new book.

Earlier this month, Vietor, a former Obama administration national security spokesman, appeared on Fox News to defend the administration’s response to the attacks and famously said to anchor Bret Baier: “Dude, this was like two years ago.”

Here is the transcript from that exchange:

BAIER: Did you also change ‘attacks’ to ‘demonstrations’ in the talking points?

VIETOR: Maybe. I don’t really remember.

BAIER: You don’t remember?

VIETOR: Dude, this was like two years ago. We’re still talking about the most mundane thing.

BAIER: Dude, it’s what everybody is talking about.

Clinton’s new book, “Hard Choices,” is focused on her tenure leading the State Department. It comes out June 10.

On Friday, Politico obtained the chapter of the book many observers are most interested in reading: her defense of her handling of the Benghazi attacks. Four Americans died in the Benghazi attacks of 2012, including Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

The Benghazi chapter will likely enrage critics: Clinton claims that an anti-Islamic video was “indeed a factor” in causing the attacks, despite CIA officials and others saying it was the result of a planned attack and not a spontaneous demonstration....

Good one Bret. Way to zing that deflecting clown.

If you want a laugh listen to the audiobook introduction read by the Hildabeast herself. A combination of insipid writing with a stilted and robotic delivery. Forcing someone to actually listen to all 1000 pages would constitute torture or assault....

The Dudester seated at the table at State Department SpokesChick Jen Psaki's wedding. Notice former White House SpokePutz Robert Gibbs.

Shades of Craig Livingston and the FBI files! Can't recall if craig was an airport limo driver before or after working in the Clinton WH.

Hillary needs little Tommy Vietor to stay quiet about his Awesome Adventure in the Situation Room that fateful day. Imagine part of HRC's payout is a very nice salary.

BTW, that's quite a gay looking trio of young dudes there at the table.

Another weird thing about that picture, the two guys seated with Vietor look like twins, as do the two women in the photo.

IMO Clintons book on Benghazi is nothing more than a diversion. You think for one minute writing a book with YOUR version of the story hasn’t been done before, particularly by the Clintons? It helps take the heat off and get ANOTHER version of what was going on back then. I trust NONE OF THEM to ever tell the truth and I do hope that Gowdy will get to the bottom of it all. I have no doubt Hitlary had her fingers in the mess along with Odumbo.
Writing a book won’t make this go away.

OBAMA ANNOUNCES NATIONAL SECURITY JOB OPENING :
"If You're a Dude and You Drive a Van,
You're My next National Security Advisor."

Tommy Vietor, Obamba's van driver, got national
security clearance, and attended WH Situation Room
meetings.

After the dude rolls out Hillary's book, the creep
is Hillary's top pick for Secretary of State Dudester.

FEEL SAFER YET, AMERICA?

The poor woman keeps having blackouts----she "forgot" to mention this salient point.

MILITARY.COM reported (during the post-Morsi ousting in Egypt), that US Pentagon officials declined to give specifics on conversations between DOD's Chuck Hagel and brilliant tactician Egyptian Gen al-Sisi, who replaced Morsi.

(NOTE Gen al Sisi, 58, received a masters degree from the U.S. War College in Carlisle, Pa, in 2006. The General is revered by Egyptians for routing the Muslim Brotherhood which Egyptians consider a terrorist organization.)

Although officials would not discuss the specifics of the military-to-military talks, the US would need Gen al-Sisi's approval to move through Egyptian air space if Washington decided to send Marines to aid in the evacuation of U.S. personnel.

READY TO ROLL About 550 Marines and their tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft are at bases in Spain and Italy on standby if they are needed. A Navy Amphibious Ready Group with 4,000 Marines and sailors aboard, led by the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, was also in the region following completion of the Eager Lion training exercises in Jordan.

=====================================

AIN'T KARMA A *ITCH, HILLARY? the US helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, WAS in the region, ready to airlift Benghazi personnel to safety. Americans were lied to----we were told Kearsarge was not available to help endangered Americans in Benghazi.

Took another look at the photo and you might be right.

.....On the other hand, it might be a gathering of pod people.

You sure that’s a wedding and not the weekly gathering of the lawn fairies?

She is not "writing" her book to enlighten us. She is "writing" it to give the media and her base talking points and to attract the media attention away from Gowdy's Committee. The media and her base [usually, but not necessarily one and the same] talking points on attacking the Republican Party in order to deflect attention from the investigation. The attacks and slander of Trey Gowdy will begin once the Committee begins meeting and calling witnesses.

In the first sentence, I used quotation marks around writing concerning her book. The reason for that is, in my opinion, the only thing Hillary wrote was her name. Some member of her slave stable actually wrote the book, if anything, she only wrote her name.

Makes sense that she would hire him - when your a$$ requires constant kissing, it’s best to go with those who are up to the task and have no sense of shame in it; hence Carney...

In his first press release as Hillary’s spokesman, Vietor noted, “Dude, that was like two years ago. What difference does it make now?”
