Report: GOP senators won’t confirm Kerry until Clinton testifies on Benghazi
Examiner ^ | 12./26/12 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 12/26/2012 12:31:59 PM PST by Nachum

Republican senators will refuse to confirm Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., as Secretary of State until the nation’s current top diplomat, Hillary Clinton, testifies about her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack.

“The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi,” The Cable’s Josh Rogin notes.

Clinton backed out of testifying at a congressional hearing last week after fainting and suffering a concussion. She was the first cabinet-level official to acknowledge that terrorists played a role in the assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

“For some time, al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings from northern Mali into neighboring countries,” Clinton said during a United Nations meeting in New York on September 26. “Now, with a larger safe haven and increased freedom to maneuver, terrorists are seeking to extend their reach and their networks in multiple directions. And they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions underway in North Africa, as we tragically saw in Benghazi,” (emphasis added).

GOP Senators would be wrong to confirm Kerry PERIOD.

The man lied to Congress and committed an act of naked treason to serve as a propagandist for the enemy (he even now admits that his claims of war crimes observed and participated in were the exaggerations of an impassioned youthful John Kerry).

What I said last week when her office indicated she would not appear at the hearings. No confirmation hearings for Lurch until she testifies.

The witch finally finds somebody who says "no" to her.

Lets hope they don't back down now. And let's hope she gets a thorough briefing.

Good idea. Get all the info while she's still on the clock. Otherwise, she might say she "Doesn't recall" later.
I hope the stupid party pulls together on this.

Hillary is probably in fear for her life with what she knows about Benghazi. Her ‘staying home’ is a security measure as she doesn’t wish to become another statistic on “the list”.

She also doesn’t want to talk about the resignations that were not resignations. People are simply being shifted around to other positions.

Well, looks like the fix is in for the Traitor to be Confirmed, AFTER Hillary's bogus/coverup Testimony "Absolves" The Messiah and his Handlers from any wrong-doing.

Someone who MEETS with the Enemy during Wartime, and gives AID AND COMFORT as he did, should be hung for Treson.

This Gigolo/Gold-Digger is the epitomy of arrogant/asshole/America-Hating snot that is consistent with Democrats today.

Great idea. They should also ask Hillary what has to be one of the most memorable quotes of the year when she told Charles Woods that the mane who made the video will be arrested.

BTW: I have seen Charles Woods speak out effectively about his son's death. But I have yet to see Tyrone Woods' wife say one word. Have I just missed her appearances?

The problem is that John Kerry can still be confirmed as Secretary of State no matter what Hillary does, since his confirmation requires only the approval by a Senate majority, which the Democrats have.

Although if John Kerry is not permitted to approve his own nomination and a replacement for Senate Inouye does not get appointed soon, things might get interesting.

A slight show of testicular fortitude from the repubs. Not much, but better than nothing.

However, they should not confirm Kerry at all! The country doesn’t need another America-hating marxist.

It’s a good move. But probably the only thing that could get Hillary to recover from her (snicker, snicker) “concussion” and testify would be waterboarding. She’s terrified of Obama. She didn’t do anything wrong on her own, because Hillary, feminist icon, has never done anything on her own but has spent her life protecting powerful men.

But if the legal penalties for covering up for him are going to be too severe, she may weaken and admit what really happened. So my question is what is it that she fears so much from Obama?

Don't get your hopes up folks.

Don't forget that Hillary has all the FBI files on every possible threat.

They are ALL corrupt and will cave to her.

And where are the Ambassador's parents. They got very hot under the collar when CNN recovered his diary weeks after the murders, but have been strangely silent since. Are they so "in the tank" for Obama that they can't defend their dead son?

Ratface Harry has already promised to end the fillibuster on the first day of the new session. Republicans will be completely shut out of the confirmation process. They will be able to do exactly nothing.

I will be amazed if either of our Sens from Maine have any reservations about confirming their fellow Marxist traitor.
They sure didn’t when they confirmed Kagan the Pagan and LaRasa Sotomayor to the SCOTUS, did they?

The only reason they balked on appointing Rice was so they could confirm Hanoi Johnny in stead.
This confirmation will just be one more demonstration that they perjured themselves when they took the oath of office to “support & defend”- but most all of of them did, it would appear.

Good point.

OBAMA MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO INSTALL KERRY WITHOUT FIRST BEING IMPEACHED FOR PLOTTING FALSE RESIGNATIONS SOLELY FOR APPEARANCE' SAKE IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE BENGHAZI COVER-UP

The 0bama regime is morally bankrupt and totally corrupt.

In honor of Kerry, here is the Ghengis Khan song...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pIc6-vO1l4

Notice that the Germans and other Europeans pronounce it with a soft J for Jengis, not the hard G for Ghengis. Wonder who taught Kerry to say it that way?
