Inhofe: Clinton showed “forceful attitude” you usually “don’t hear from women”
Salon.com ^ | May 10, 2013 | Jillian Rayfield

Posted on 05/10/2013 10:42:51 PM PDT by Rennes Templar

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., said that Hillary Clinton showed a “forceful attitude” not usually heard from women when she blew up in January’s Senate hearings on Benghazi, in response to repeated questions about the State Department’s initial claims that the attacks were the result of protests.

“I think that she has gotten by with that type of a forceful attitude, something that’s not normally accustomed — that you don’t hear from women as much as you do men. And she came out so forcefully, and you could tell that it was orchestrated at the time that she said it,” Inhofe said in an interview Thursday on “The Rusty Humphries Show.”

“What difference, at this point, does it make” if the attacks were the result of a protest or not, Clinton said at the time. ”It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”

Via The Hill, Inhofe also had this exchange with host Humphries about possibly impeaching President Obama over the attacks:

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe said.

“The I-word meaning impeachment?” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe responded.

Hillary is, at least, guilty of gross dereliction of duty causing the death of 4 innocent Americans. That’s a chargable offense.

“And she came out so forcefully...”

The only thing she forgot to do was bang her shoe on the desk.

If the Ambassador hadn’t died, this would be very funny! It does kind of take your breath away, seeing her standing there grinning, and thinking how expendable he is......

She had to get loud and act like a bully because she was eyeballs deep in a lie. Intimidation is all she had left.

This has been her method for years. Throwing lamps, ashtrays, filthy mouth, bully tactics.

I think he used the wrong words. Ann Coulter can be forceful. Even Condi Rice. Hillary had an ugly, defiant attitude.

How about how black her heart must be, that when the bodies came back to Dover, she promised the SEAL dad that the government would arrest and imprison the man who made the offending video? She did that while knowing full well that it had nothing to do with anything, and that she was engaged in a coverup of that fact.

She is pure Stalinist, circa 1937.

“This has been her method for years. Throwing lamps, ashtrays, filthy mouth, bully tactics.”

In the book about his years carrying the nuke “football” in the Clinton White House,” Buzz Patterson said Hillary’s foul mouth and volcanic temper were the stuff of legend. EVERYONE hated that evil, reprehensible bitch.

I would hope it haunts her, but I know it doesn’t . She has NO SOUL. If this had happened to me, I would be devastated and would resign immediately. She is so complicit in this web of deceit there is no other explanation than she was in it for the power . God how she must want to be President.....enough to murder for it.

Yeah, well, she is heartless.

She hugged and looked straight into the eyes of at least one mom, Mrs Smith, and told her that her son was murdered in Benghazi because of “that video.”

Obama, Biden and Panetta told Mrs Smith the exact same thing.

Inhofe needs to better consider his words. He is giving ammunition to those who would discredit him by this characterization. This will tick off women and make it easier to push them into supporting Hillary.

That was my first thought in reading the headline, too.

In today’s world speaking the truth isn’t allowed. Gender or anything that separates one out from the collective, is a no-no.

Sean Smith’s mother was interviewed by Bill O Reilly.
She said when she asked why this happend, Hillary personally told her the attack was caused by the video
This happened at Sean’s memorial service.
How cold must Hillary be to lie to a victim’s mother at his memorial service.

Hillary’s feigned indignation was a typical Clinton tactic.
Nothing more than a well rehearsed melodrama to divert inquiries into her incompetence and culpability over Benghazi.

The Clintons are masters at cheap theatrics and playing the role of the beleaguered public servant just trying to do a job.

She wasn’t forceful.

That was an hysterical outburst.

I’ve never seen anyone use hysteria like Hillary does with such good effect. She’s done it in the past.

If it had been anyone else, and the media protects her, it would have been viewed as what it was: the hysterical outburst of a liar.

Losing control as she did is not the hallmark of Secretary of State or for that matter, anyone in a position of power.

Clinton and eventually Obama will be shown to have known that our embassy was attacked by Islamic terrorists and to have authorized the cover-up and outright lying to the American public. The stand down order for military forces who could have supported out embassy staff will be again eventually shown to have come from the White House. However despite how damning this revelation NOTHING will come of it. The MSM will cover Obama’s butt no matter what and no Congressional Democrat would ever accept impeachment regardless of what Obama did.

Bad choice of words. He is, of course, right, but they will pile on with the war-against-women meme.

You are exactly right. Makes me cry to think about it, but you are exactly right.

And, sadly, it is not just the Rats who will not accept impeachment. The GOPe is just as cowardly.

The Republicans really blew the opportunity to respond when Hillary said, “What difference, at this point, does it make”.

Imagine if one the Republicans had immediately responded by saying, "What difference? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? Are you serious? Should the Warren Commission have disbanded the Kennedy assassination investigations and said, “What difference, at this point, does it make?" In your world, doesn't the loss of life due to government inaction make a difference?

Yep, the only thing HillBilly is good at is lying, obfuscating and covering up. She has screwed up everything else she has ever done in life. Which makes her one talent very useful to her.

She seems to be one of those people that puts a lot more effort into not doing her job and finding ways around getting work done than the work would actually require. A real winner.

Very true. I suppose she does have one other talent and that is intimidating subordinates and she gets the results that most screamers do ... poor. Her first big publicly known failure was her own health care reform bill. I am certain that her only input was to threaten the people writing it for her to “get it right!” After that she thought it would just ride into law and public acclaim on her royal name.
