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 nations current top diplomat, Hillary Clinton, testifies about her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack.
The Senate is expected to take up Kerrys nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they wont agree to a vote on Kerrys nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, The Cables 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,

It remains to be seen if the Repub senators will stick to their word.
The Senate Dems have the votes though, don’t they?
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.
The rats (republicans) are apparently ready to confirm the franco american.
They just want a "concession"
Bullshit .. bullshit .. bullshit !!!
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.
A face lift and an ass reduction.
May be just the ammunition Harry Reid need to shove thru his “no holds and no filibusters” rule change.
Instead of "Valente", her jeans read "Freuhoff"
“A face lift and an ass reduction.”
Don’t forget that pesky ‘kankelectomy’.
Correction. The GOP senators will confirm Mr. Kerry when Mrs.Clinton and Mr. Obama tell them to. Thank You.
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.
Such a sad state of affairs when we doubt these guys, but that’s the trust they have built with the base.
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.
Ain’t NEVER gonna catch Herself, the Cold and Joyless. Herself has proved this over and over.
The only facelift that would help would be a facelift off her head.
And wtf do they mean confirm Kerry?
My wife thinks that the reason that the HILL is laying low is because she had a face lift ......The bruising in the procedure is extreme
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.
You know damn well no such thing will happen.
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.
this has to do with the certification of loss on nationality....guess who is tasked to hold and fruition that doc
yep...the S of S
Where’s that picture of a Pig flyin’? LOL!
They’ll cave just like they always do or her questions will be silly little general ones that don’t amount to a hill of beans.
“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...”
A face lift and an ass reduction.
But.. But... He was re-elected.......
Probably another “Read My Lips...no new taxes” moment
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.
Any GOP Senator voting to confirm Kerry as Sec. of Defense needs to be sent back to the Private Sector.
This is good...well,except the part where they cave.
Hhhmmmm....I was never convinced that he was at any time a US citizen...
I thought you said she’d banged her head.
All the skin stretching possible won’t help. Look at Pelosi.
However, they could take some fat out of Michelle’s ass and put it in Hillary’s lips.
Gigolo Kerry the athlete
