GOP 'Thugs' in Congress Guilty of 'Assaulting' Hillary,
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 01/24/2013 5:31:35 PM PST by chessplayer

Surely without intending to do so, liberal radio host Bill Press has providing a compelling argument against renewal of the Violence Against Women Act.

On his radio show this morning, the easily piqued Press sniffed in disdain at the sheer effrontery of Republican senators asking pointed questions of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi. (audio clip after page break)

Here's what the indignant Press had to say

"I have to tell you, man, watching the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday and she appeared in front of the House committee in the afternoon, I was reminded of several things. Number one, the Republican war on women continues, it ain't over, man! They were in the middle of it yesterday. Number two, it's a good thing that the Violence Against Women Act hasn't been renewed. Otherwise there would have been some of those, a whole handful of thugs in the Republican, Republican thugs in the Senate and in the House led by Rand Paul and John McCain who would have been arrested for assaulting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton."

Press deserves credit, however, for pointing out this heretofore unnoticed and problematic provision in the Violence Against Women Act -- violence, as proponents of the law see it, occurs when anyone expresses an opinion that liberals don't like.

Assaulted? For crying out loud, with only a couple of exceptions they completely played along with the theme of Hillary's 2016 Campaign Launch Party.

Wanting to know the truth is now considered an assault?

Bill Press is actually covered under the Violence Against Women Act.

Funny I thought it was the 4 people who died that were assaulted.

She avoided answering some of the questions, They should bring her back again and again until sh answers these questions under oath.
She is responsible for what happened and responsible to the American people to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Par for the course with Hillary!

Every time she is aggressively (appropriately so) questioned or challenged by a (Republican) man, she and her sycophants play the domestic-abuse victim card.

Remember that first Senate debate against Lazio. He crossed the stage to hand her a piece of paper and the press and her campaign (ok, being redundant there ...) acted like he’d stormed across the stage and pimp-slapped her.

Now I remember why Bill Press’ show was cancelled by KFI in Los Angeles.

To #4:

Re: Bill Press is actually covered under the Violence Against Women Act.

Keep Pressing that point. Maybe he’ll get his crinolins in a bunch.

If you look up the words “wimp”, “whinner” and “loser” in the dictionary, you’ll find a picture of Bill Press there.

A Trifecta of crap. In that, he is a winner!

Bill, you BIGOT!
How dare you suggest that Hillary be treated any different because she’s a woman!

“What difference...?”

The “difference”, Madam Secretary, is that unlike the White House, here in the Senate, the TRUTH is important.

Long after the TRUTH was known by the White House, this LIE about the video, continued to be publicly trumpeted as the basis for the attack that left 4 Americans DEAD.

So, we want to know the following:
WHO directed that the LIE continue AFTER the TRUTH was known?
What was the point of peddling that lie, 2 weeks after the TRUTH was known?
At a minimum YOU and the President KNEW it was a lie, and yet you BOTH continued to repeat it. So, WHY should anyone believe either of you from this point forward?

THAT Madame Secretary, is “THE DIFFERENCE IT MAKES”!!

If Hillary can’t stand the heat, perhaps she should get out of the kitchen.

Progressives are never accountable for anything.

Trying to hold them accountable is an offense against the state.

If asking a few softball questions to Hillary now counts as “assault”, how do you describe the way Big Leftist Media treated Sarah Palin for years?

Gang rape and lynching??

Lawful congressional oversight is now considered assault.

Whatever happened to “Dissent is patriotic”?

Does he think that women in combat situations will be any less assaulted when they’re overrun by enemy forces? The first mass rape that occurs will prove Panetta quite wrong. War is uncivilized confrontation.

Poor, lying Mrs. Slick Willie. Those pesky and wascally Wepublicans were picking on her again because she’s incompetent. It’s that wascally “War on Womyn” again. The one that wasn’t in effect when the scum sucking commie ‘RATS were destroying Sarah Palin and her family. If Slick’s wife can’t take the heat, she needs to stay out of the kitchen. I never heard Governor Palin whine like this when she was being trashed by light in the loafers DemocRATS.

If women want to be equal to men that means taking the same heat they do. Are we to assume that our country’s enemies will be gentle with the soon to be newly minted frontline women soldiers because they are women. Until women face the same exact demands as men they will have achieved only tokenism not equality.

I guess perceptions are different across the ideology spectrum. I thought the republicans were going to swap spit with the hag.

He’s got some nerve! How dare he talk about violence against women - HE supported and pushed for Terri Shiavo’s murder!! If THAT isn’t violence against women, I sure as heck don’t know what is! I sure wish I’d kept his column, and the e-mail I sent him and his response. What gall! Talk about being on satan’s side.

How dare those slimy Rethuglicans ask questions of Queen Hillary!!! Don’t they know who they’re talking to those repulsive cretins???!!!! They dare to assume that Hillary the Smartest and Greatest Woman Ever does not deserve to be talked to like a normal government functionary. She is beyond being questioned by mere mortals (if you want to call Rethuglicans human...hrummph). All Republicans who were at that hearing deserve to be whipped with barbed wire and hung by their thumbs...or listen to an Obama speech. Equally miserable torture.

If clinton can’t take the heat she should stay out of the kitchen. It’s not as if she was a great cook, or something.

The Secretary of State should be able to be questioned, severely, and if Hillary is too ‘tender’ to take it, then she doesn’t have what it takes to be Secretary of State.
