Skip to comments.Clinton: Benghazi Won’t Affect Whether I Run For President
Posted on 02/01/2013 12:32:57 PM PST by yoe
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is leaving office with a slap at critics of the Obama administrations handling of the September attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya. She told The Associated Press that critics of the administrations handling of the attack dont live in an evidence-based world and their refusal to accept the facts is unfortunate and regrettable for the political system.
In her last one-on-one interview before she steps down on Friday, Clinton told the AP that the attack in Benghazi was the low point of her time as Americas top diplomat. But she suggested that the furor over the assault would not affect whether she runs for president in 2016.
[snip] An independent panel she convened to look into the incident was scathing in its criticism of the State Department and singled out four officials for serious management and leadership failures. But it also determined that there was no guarantee that extra personnel could have prevented the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans. Clinton herself was not blamed, although she has said she accepted responsibility for the situation.

It won’t affect her run.
The Republicans handed her the opportunity to run instead of trashing her and tearing her down about Benghazi so that she would never be able to return to politics. They should have Chuck Hagel-ed her. Instead they high-fived her.
This woman stood by her husband when he BURNED CHILDREN ALIVE at Waco. Then he got re-elected. That’s all that needs to be said.
Dan Quayle mis-spelled “potato” and it ruined his political career. POTATO?!?
Hill-Dawg got people killed?!?
I listened to an NPR examination of Hillary during moring edition this morning. They talked of her as a conservative republican would talk of Reagan. They actually included her “it doesn’t matter” quote as a positive for her. They are clueless.
She must be throwing more blood clots.
She won’t run. It’s gonna be a long and scary four years, and she is not outa the woods regarding her failing brain. You can stick a fork in her. That is, unless she is the head injury spoken of in Revelation.
In 2016, the most endangered species will be anyone standing between Princess BloodClot and The Oval Office.
I fully expect to hear about more “accidents” and “suicides” in the next few years.
It didn’t affect the election either, BECAUSE SHE, OBAMA, RICE AND THE NEWS MEDIA ALL CONSPIRED TO COVER-UP THE NATURE OF THE ATTACK!! Notice how the White House IMMEDIATELY called the terrorist attack in Turkey today a “TERRORIST ATTACK”? Must not be an election coming up, huh?
The hell you say.
YOU can stick a fork in her; I'm not going near.
Of course. The public has its head up its a$$ and won’t remember Benghazi. When the election comes around, the media will sanitize it for the short memory people who think Benghazi is an ointment for sore muscles.
They're not clueless, they're right. To the people that will elect her, it doesn't.
“I fully expect to hear about more accidents and suicides in the next few years.”
Let’s hope its her own.
Yeah, Clueless is the wrong word. Evil. That is the word I’m looking for.
“Lets hope its her own.”
If Moochelle Antoinette decides to run, anything is possible....major-league popcorn time for conservatives.
Perhaps it’s time to gin up some support for the current FLOTUS.
Imagine the DNC drama to ensue with those two harpies...wheeee!
"I've done what was possible to do." (From a Drudge report source)
It won’t affect her run.
It will affect her chances.
Would not passing weapons to Al-Queda and committing accessory to murder to cover it up a bit of a problem in that regard?
That might put a bit of a crimp on her plans... Hard to run a good campaign from the grave.
Biden's got a production company producing an ad, to wit:
"Benghazi was Hillary's 3 AM call, and she failed."
Hey, I have an idea...let's put ole Herman Cain up there again...lol...I'm sure he has several more skeletons in the closet. Or gun grabbing, climate changing, one world government, adulterous Gingrich - that should seal the deal.
Could Republicans be any more self-destructing than they were the past two election cycles? Only time will tell, huh!
Now it's time to be paid more millions in the private sector again before officially announcing.
It will not change her decision, but I sure hope it has an impact on the decisions of the voters. (even democrats)
But then again “what difference does it make?” if they lied about the bombing to cover up that al qaeda attacked US personnel and the President and his administration refused to allow the military to launch a rescue that by all accounts would very likely have saved multiple lives. (and would have sent a message not to mess with us in the future.)
That picture should be plastered all over the country in every possible media.
Never thought it would. Ice water in those veins.
>They are clueless.<
No, they’re not, but they want you to think that they are totally innocent of any trickery and deception.
Learned it from satan.
She is a snake. Until she is completely incapable of running for elected office again, there is always the chance she will. She could easily move to yet another new blue state, rehab her image over the next few years and the left will vote for her again in droves. Once rehabbed, she will be the queen bee again.
Crush her, now, crush her again, crush her so bad that Clintons not even related to her will be afraid to run for office.
It never stopped them before.
If the Senate can approve a person for Secretary of State that received a dishonorable discharge for treason and falsified and embellished his military record then Hillary Clinton should be a shoe in for the choice for the Democratic party.
The GOP-e will choose either fatass Christie or RINO Jeb to run against Hitlery.
The fatty will have a heart attack while campaigning and Hildebeast wins by default, unless she also is disqualified due to a blood clot.
Just seeing the matchup “Clinton vs. Bush”, the campaign will be over before it even starts.
Hitlery 55% Kristie Creme 45%
Hitlery 60% Jeb! 40%
This is our fate unless we run a true conservative like Ted Cruz.
Kristie Creme! That’s perfect.
Oh but I do believe she will run.
It will be a Palin-Hitlary show down.
Clinton: “Benghazi Wont Affect Whether I Run For President”
She has blood on her hands, knows that we know it, and is telling us, too bad, “put some ice on it.” I’m immune to the laws you underlings have to follow.
So what difference does it make? This line was was well thought out and rehearsed. She couldn’t wait to drop it in the hearings.
It will be a Palin-Hitlary show down.
Hillary is hoping that most Americans, with their short attention spans and ADD memories, will forget all about her Yossarian crack while being grilled NOT under oath (still wondering why the hell they allowed her to not be sworn in...considering her well-known penchant for dishonesty from Bubba’s presidential terms). And most Americans will forget all about her involvement and culpability in the Benghazi deaths by 2016. This is what we have now. A totally dysfunctional system thanks to the enemy within radical left (Democrats).
“Hey. Remember how we killed Vince? This is nothing. I can still run and win.”
