Report: GOP senators won’t confirm Kerry until Clinton testifies on Benghazi
The Washington Examiner ^ | December 2012 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 12/27/2012 8:13:10 AM PST by yoe

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...) 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,”

Would a 'hold' be more effective?

It is a nice sentiment. However, everyone with any sense knows from her Rose Law Firm days and the scores of questions regarding it accompanied by her “I can’t recall” or “I don’t think you can prove...” answers that she is the Penultimate Liar, second only to Bill Clinton.

Many here might question why Obama is not the Ultimate Liar. Well, he does lie, frequently. He, however, just flat assed doesn’t discuss anything regarding his true intentions, and he lets his minions do much of the lying for him on things he’s already done, or not done as is the case in many instances.

It can be filibustered, i.e., the GOP can stop it with 41 votes.

Since Lard Butt banged her head she may use that as an excuse to say “I can’t remember” or “I can’t recall” and the LSM will buy it.

Correction. The GOP senators will confirm Mr. Kerry when Mrs.Clinton and Mr. Obama tell them to. Thank You.

Nothing will happen. In D.C. nobody is ever held accountable.

Cronyism at it's finest, and Lurch will get his seat and Hillary will be adored by the masses of low information voters in 2016.

The ultimate winners in the last election were the beltway insiders e.g., Elizabeth Warren.

How do you put a ‘hold’ on a greased pig?

That used to be good old-fashioned fun, trying to grab the greased pig as it ran past you. Now it has become the national sport as played out in Washington, DC.

Definitely could be. Imagine how scary she’d be if she combined her personality and vindictiveness with a “cat woman” face that can result from a too-extreme face lift.

I presumed that if Hillary had any thoughts of running in ‘16 she’d have to spend the next 3 yrs. with Pelosi’s plastic surgeon.

Nominating Kerry is just extending a big middle finger to the Swiftboat Vets.

“I don’t recall...”

“I don’t remember.”

“I don’t know. It was a long time ago.”

“I was baking cookies for the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“I slipped and had a concussion and since then it’s all been so foggy...”

I will save them the trouble.

Uh, I don't recall.
To the best of my recollection that is not what occurred.
Sorry, I just can't remember that.
I have no memory of that.

Proceed to the coronation.

Yes, the development of backbone is to be encouraged in jelly fish and sponges.

BTW, what democratic transformation occurred in North Africa? There were some armed rebellions and coups, but they aren’t necessarily democratic just because they say that democracy’s what they want. That’s what Robespierre and Fidel Castro said they wanted. Lenin, too.
