Networks Swoon for Hillary’s ‘Indignation’ and ‘Tears,’
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 01/23/2013 8:34:13 PM PST by chessplayer

Mark January 23rd as the launch date for the news media’s fresh campaign to have Hillary Clinton replace Barack Obama in the Oval Office in 2017. ABC and NBC, and CBS to a lesser extent, on Wednesday night treated Secretary of State Clinton’s appearances before Senate and House committees not as an chance to explore Obama administration dissembling on Benghazi, but as an opportunity to boost Clinton’s supposed brilliant performance.

“The indignation. And then, the tears in her eyes,” ABC anchor Diane Sawyer announced before trumpeting: “It was a valedictory that showed her indignation and emotion as she ends this tenure on the public stage. ABC’s chief global affairs correspondent, Martha Raddatz, brings us the riveting encounter today.”

An impressed Raddatz exclaimed: “What a way to end her four-year tenure as Secretary of State,” recalling how “a month ago, she was flat on her back with a nasty concussion,” but “today, this woman who has traveled the world as America’s top diplomat, came to the Hill ready for a fight.”

Raddatz touted: “It was a riveting drama. Secretary of State Clinton seen in rare public form, at times angry, aggressively on the defense. At another point, choking up over her four lost colleagues.”

“What difference does it make?” is just Rev. 2 of “Should’a, could’a, would’a.”

I remember during the 2008 primaries when it came out that Hillary did her usual lying about the sniper fire incident..the media couldnt wait to pounce on her, I remember that Keith Overbite fool called her a pathetic liar..now the media kisses her ass and swoons over her..I guess as long as your a Dem you can get away with ANYTHING..including murder. Will we ever know the full truth about Benghazi, probably not..Obama has gotten away with cold blooded murder

Her performance was offensive if you care about the USA, but all they care about is insuring her election in 2016.

What she said about “What difference does that make” made me want to punch her right in the face..what an absolutely cold hearted thing to say..she is a POS..but the left adores her because she is just as Anti American as they are..she said she never blamed the video..yet Tyronne Wood’s father said that Clinton told him that the video maker would be put in jail..she can’t stop lying, she learned from her hubby, still to this day the best liar

Hillary rarely wears glasses, but I noticed she had them on today. My take is that because she planned to pull a crying jag today, she wore glasses so she wouldn’t lose a contact lens.

Yep, this is now a Dead Horse. (Benghazi, not HRC!)

I was impressed with how well prepared she was, including the emotional theatrics, indignation, tears, and all — her performance blew the doors off compared with the idiotic speechifying and inept questioning by the Congressmen. They were as pathetic as Issa, Boehner, McConnell and all the rest of the nutless wonders we have on the Hill. Hillary wiped the floor with them...and yes, of course she lied and obfuscated all the way. But they were too stupid to point it out, so she won the battle and the war.

How dare you talk about whether or not the video was the cause of the attack! Four brave Americans are dead and all you want to do is talk about a video! You are scum to bring that up and it defames the memory of those heroes. Let me tell you when I stood by those coffins and looked into the eyes of the family ... sob, sob.

So don't ask my ANY MORE questions about why the Obama administration lied for 20 days about some irrelevant video which we knew in a half hour had nothing to do with the attack!

Have you no decency?

WHAT F'ING DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE IF WE LIED OVER AND OVER TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

I will take no more questions about that. It is an insult to the memory of the lost. Thank you.

Was this woman really ever ill? She doesn’t look like it. She does look like a hag that has drunk and smoked a long time; but I don’t believe she had anything wrong with her. It’s nothing but a big act. The best would be to charge her with treason.

The best defense is a good offense...and was she ever offensive today.

[[she learned from her hubby, still to this day the best liar]]

Neither oen of them are good liars- they are propped up by the mainstream media who are masters at bait and switch- the bubba’s tell blatant obvious lies, the mainstream media swears to thel ies, then immediately changes the topic and begin attackign the right- Yuo coudl say the bubbia’s are masters at threatenign the presss if the press doesn’t help them out- or perhaps masters at avoiders- always avoiding hte queswitons and switchign hte subject— but htey are terrible liars- it’s just that NOONE EVER holds them acco9tnable for their obvious and blatant lies-

I have become convinced with the MSM swooning over ever democrat out there, that the standard MSM news media essential supplies contain Knee Pads and a package of Handy Wipes.

Is there a reporter out there with any of the MSM that actually will ask anything but softball questions or maintain any dignity. I personally believe that they prefer to drop down to their knees and kiss the ass of democrats if not more.

Well I, for one, am just to see that Hillary has made a miraculous recovery from her grave and life threatening injuries of a few weeks ago.

Must be all that government health care

We can all expect soundbites from that hearing to be played by LSM leading up to 2016 not as evidence of her incompetence and prefabrications and temper and pretentiousness and combativeness and inability and unwillingness to answer the questions but her leadership qualities in standing up to those big bad men. In fact it has already started.

Hildemussilini's performance was almost as good as Dwight's.

I think it was the pounding on the podium that did it for me.

“What difference does it make?”

I wish a Senator had borrowed from the McCarthy hearings -
“”Have you no shame, Senator Clinton - Have you no shame” Four Americans were killed that could have been saved had you even read and acted on messages to you from one of your Ambassadors (not just one of 1-1/2 million junk emails). Then you and the President covered up the story, which still isn’t completely open. President Nixon resigned over his actions AFTER a botched burglary that didn’t make any difference in an election. President Obama was elected by a slim margin (300k votes in 4 states would have changed the result). He easily could have lost that many votes, and more, had people understood his complicity and failure to lead and take action that was available. His and your actions appear to be purely political, meant to save President Obama’s and your reputations. President Nixon could have thrown those supporting him under the bus early on as you have just done to Ambassador Rice, but he wrongfully had actions taken to try to protect people associated with his campaign and ultimately assumed responsibility for his bad behavior by resigning. Neither this president, you, nor anyone in the administration has assumed any responsibility - and now you are trying to blame things on the Republican House for not providing money.
HAVE YOU NO SHAME, MADAME SECRETARY!”
