NBC Laments 'Grueling Day' of Benghazi Testimony for 'Stellar' Clinton
Newsbusters ^ | 1/23/13 | Kyle Drennen

Posted on 01/23/2013 9:38:22 AM PST by Nachum

Wrapping up a report on Wednesday's NBC Today about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's upcoming congressional testimony on the Benghazi terrorist attack, chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell sympathetically observed: "It will be a grueling day, first in the Senate, then in the House. Not how the Secretary of State had planned to wind up what is widely viewed as a stellar term as the nation's top diplomat." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

At the top of the segment, Mitchell seemed to lament that Clinton would have to endure such questioning after recent health problems: "The Secretary of State has had to deal with a serious illness, amidst swirling and discredited conspiracy theories, but is now finally able to answer questions about security failures in Benghazi. After a fall, a concussion, and a blood clot, Hillary Clinton will face questions today Republicans have wanted to ask for months."

As if anything else could happen.

Corruption rules, and nothing will be done.

I knew it, and you knew it.

Why do we even go through the pretense of having a democracy?

Oh yea? Well, it was a grueling day for the 4 who were killed, too. Not sure I’m feeling too much sympathy for the woman who is paid to be our Secretary of State.

Tired of seeing this old goat being put up on a pedestal. For WHAT???

“Why do we even go through the pretense of having a democracy?”

It makes the dolts in the American public happy, and lets the media still feel superior. The media knows they are simply the propaganda arm of the White House, but they hate to admit it.

I think John Bolton had a great response to NBC; he stated that (paraphrasing) he thought FDR had a couple of rough days on Dec 7th & 8th, 1941. And, concerning physical condition, lest we forget FDR was a polio victim.

A widely viewed Stellar performance as Secretary of State?/

Well Hillary certainly is viewed as being physically wode enough.

Wea have the Middle East ready to burst into flames and Europe laughing at us, I wouldn’t call that much of a job performance.

I certainly hope for Hillary’s sake that this doesn’t send her back to her alcohol rehab , and call it another concussion.

She’s a communist. Communists are worshiped by the media.

I firmly believe Clinton could have testified that the murders happened, she lied, and she just doesn’t give a rat’s patootie about the outcome.

The media would applaud her boldness and showing she was tough.

Hitlery Klinton should be dropped into the center of the worst possible neighborhood in Benghazi and left to see what it is like to be gang raped in the ass and hung up by her feet so they can beat her “brains” out.

That’s what she allowed to happen while being such a political zombie about everything.

We have a pretense of a Democracy because Kings and Queens hate guillotines.

Where did Hillary’s face full of wrinkles go? Did she get a face-lift when she was in the hospital for the so-called “blood clot”? On TV today, her face looks 40 years younger.

This was a much a made for TV event as the senate could provide. Things may be a bit different when she runs into Jason Chaffetz and Trey Gowdy at the house hearings.

I saw a clip of her “emotional” testimony of how she watched them unload the caskets and “comforted” the families. Then having a hissy fit about being questioned in such a manner and screaming “what does it matter how it happened?”.

By stellar they must mean a giant ball of hot flaming gas in an huge void.

What in the world has she accomplished?
