Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while lamenting the partisanship of congressional Republicans who grilled her about the Benghazi attack, encouraged Republicans not to imitate the unwillingness to compromise evinced by terrorists in North Africa.
It has been increasingly partisan, Clinton said today at the Newseum when asked to comment on the questioning she faced from Republicans last week. You can be partisan, you can have a strong sense of the rightness of your position, but democracy and certainly legislative bodies require compromise. And you cant let compromise become a dirty word because then you veer toward fanaticism.
I mean, we were just talking about extremists who think its only their way, they are the ones who have the truth, none of the rest of us have any kind of claim on what is real in their views, she continued. And so its important in our democracies like Australia, like the United States that yes, be passionate, be intense about your feelings, but at the end of the day youve got to serve the people who sent you there, and that requires compromise.
The extremists Clinton had just been discussing included those that carried out the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, resulting in the deaths of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
This is not what the Arab revolution was about, and theres a great deal of concern across the region about people who choose to use violence to try to impose their extremist views rather than participate in politics, Clinton said of the terrorist attacks taking place around North Africa. It does have the potential, however, of expanding beyond the region, which is why I think youre seeing an international concern and coalition coming together to support the people of Mali, to stand by the Government of Algeria, to work with the Government of Libya, so that they themselves are given the tools they need to combat this extremist threat.
Ironically, Obamugabe is a north African terrorist. Or is Kenya further south.
That’s rich. Evita Peron said something almost like this to hijack the government and kill the opposition.
Good going, Hillary. We can call you Evita Clintonista.
Real piece of work...
Shut up Hillary, you’re drunk!
Mrs. Slick Willie needs to stop acting like a Stepford Wife.
I was looking for the satire tag.
This woman is nutz.
Isn’t she a disgusting piece of garbage? Ask Vince Foster what he thinks about her warning. What a useless twit!
Kenya is much farther south.
Me too. Thought it was The Onion.
Hillary’s idiocy is why 9/11’s happen, I’m sure will have another soon, thanks to these idiots!
How did that Happen?
This lying sack of alinski accuses her opponents of her own dirty deeds.
I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic, and we should stand up and say ... we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with ANY administration!!!!
No. That ONLY applies to fellow socialists comrade ...
Slick Willie had a way of charming just about anyone if he wanted to, especially if they were in the same room. Hillary has learned nothing from him. She’s just a b@#$h.
Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the (House Judiciary) committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedys chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifmans 17-year career.
Because she was a liar, Zeifman said in an interview last week. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
Somebody call a waaaaaaaaaambulance!
(My tagline’s still apropo.)
"The ['Hillary Care'] plan prescribed some eye-popping maximum fines: $5,000 for refusing to join the government mandated health plan; $5,000 for failing to pay premiums on time; 15 years in prison for doctors who received anything of value in exchange for helping patients short circuit bureaucracy; $10,000 a day for faulty physician paperwork; and $50,000 for unauthorized patient treatment. When told the plan could bankrupt small businesses, Mrs. Clinton said, 'I cant be responsible for every under-capitalized small business in America'!" -- Tony Snow reporting on Hillary's health care plan
