On Friday, Bloombergs Francis Wilkinson predicted that Benghazi will be Hillary Clintons 2016 Whitewater.
Considering her long history of scandals and the litany of subsequent excuses and denials she sent spinning to absolve herself of any fault -- Examiner predicted Thursday that Benghazi could prove to be a real "corkscrew landing" under "sniper fire" for Clinton in 2016.
In case you have any lingering doubt about the true agenda of House Republicans in Wednesday's Benghazi hearing, check out these numbers, Jed Lewison fretted Thursday for the uber-liberal blog site, Daily Kos.
15: Number of times President Barack Obama was mentioned during the hearing 71: Number of times fmr. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was mentioned
Evidently, Lewison cant imagine why Clinton the fmr. secretary of state, whose duty it was to protect the lives of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and ex-Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty who were killed under her watch would be mentioned so many times during a hearing aimed at finding out who was responsible for the decisions that ultimately led to their deaths.

The testimony of the Benghazi survivors -- the self-described "whistle-blowers," who have dared to step forward and tell their stories, despite the threats from those who stand to lose the most -- has pretty much decimated the story that President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton (with the assistance of the essentially useless Press Secretary Jay Carney and the embarrassingly naive U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice) pushed to cover their own asses.
A little side-note on those Benghazi survivors:
Were it not for the heroic efforts of those ex-Navy SEALs -- Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty -- who disobeyed the orders to "stand down"... TWICE... and lead a rescue team from their location (a mile away)to the Benghazi compound after they heard shots being fired -- those "whistle-blowers" might not be have been alive to testify on Wednesday.
Makes the possible explanation as to why they were told to "stand down" -- and why subsequent rescue personnel were told "not to go" -- come into ugly perspective -- doesn't it?
Even more entertaining (or "pathetic"... I can't quite decide yet) is the amount of frantic effort the liberal MSM and their blogger minions are expelling to deny and beat back the obvious -- that Hillary is toast in 2016.
Sure... there might be enough of what Rush Limbaugh describes as "low information voters" to elect her as the Democratic nominee for 2016. But, as South Carolina Republican Rep.Sen. Lindsey Graham posed(rhetorically) to National Review on Thursday:
"How in the world could she have believed that the death of Chris Stevens was a spontaneous riot motivated by a hateful video?
"Either she is completely disconnected from reality or that was political spin."
"Ultimately, the voters will decide, Graham conceded, but if youre running to be commander in chief, people are going to judge you by the job youve done.
And, as I noted in my article -- Hillary's scandal record is LONG.
In his equally frantic screed -- "GOPs trumped-up Benghazi scandal hasnt tarnished Hillary Clinton" -- Pat Cunningham parroted Lewison's silly lament, "that Clintons name was mentioned almost five times as often as President Obamas in Wednesdays House Oversight Committee hearing on Benghazi."
"The objective of the GOP scandal-mongers was clear: Bring Hillary down a peg or two or five."
"Evidently," he "cant imagine why Clinton the fmr. secretary of state, whose duty it was to protect the lives of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and ex-Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty who were killed under her watch would be mentioned so many times during a hearing aimed at finding out who was responsible for the decisions that ultimately led to their deaths" either.
He's "betting that the next batch of polls measuring Clintons popularity will show that she remains far more well-liked among the American people than any Republican politician in the land."
Yeah... and I'm betting that "should Clinton decide to make a run at the presidency in 2016, she better start figuring out how shes going to make a corkscrew landing through her past and start practicing how to duck the sniper fire that is sure to ensue as she runs across the campaign tarmac."
‘What does it matter.... ?.... AHHHHHHH”
If I were a high-stakes Democrat player in the second tier for the 2016 election...I’d start to put my team together and anticipate that she’s toast at this point. Imagine walking into Iowa and folks there asking stupid questions about the ambassador or Libya. Up until the event....she was guaranteed the 2016 election and would have been tough to beat. I’d say now....she’d best prepare to sit down and just write books and pretend it’s over.
"Evidently," he "cant imagine why Clinton the fmr. secretary of state, whose duty it was to protect the lives of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and ex-Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty who were killed under her watch would be mentioned so many times during a hearing aimed at finding out who was responsible for the decisions that ultimately led to their deaths" either.Yeah Hilliary over Jarrett...er that is Obama...5 to 1, he's gotta be lovin' this!
Great article and commentary, thank you for posting it on FR, and welcome to FR!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
On Friday, Bloombergs Francis Wilkinson predicted that Benghazi will be Hillary Clintons 2016 Whitewater.Whitewater? IOW, once again the joke's on us.
In case Francis Wilkinson didn't know NOTHING happened with Whitewater. Records were lost, then found in plain sight, some big slobbering
fool friend got in some trouble and another "friend" killed himself then drove to a park to die in the bushes.
The commie toads in the state-controlled “media” sure are scared and upset right now. They’re scared to death that Slick Willie’s wife won’t be the next “president”. Gonna be a lot of bedwetting going on this weekend in Liberalville.
A medical review of her mental status will find her unfit to lead after the bleed!
Betcha she’s deep into the Jack Daniels this weekend...
Waiting to learn that someone lied to their talking points...
If I were a high-stakes Democrat player in the second tier for the 2016 election.......Do you mean Biden?LOL
Remember how far Hillary was trying to get away from the media and Obama last summer and fall? She was going to strange and exotic places for weeks on end. Benghazi brought her out which we will be eventually thankful for. Then, when she made her ‘bold’ comments to the committee, she stuck both hands in the tar. I really hope the right leaders are stepping up to pen these traitors (Obama and Hillary) in. THey should include some of our own too like McCain. I am not saying he is traitor, just an enabler.
Are not many people getting tired of these distractions? Most people just want to get to the truth without changing the subject.
Daily Kos just learn how to report like the UK Guardian. The accusations and motives can come later. It is really annoying to see just hysterical, off subject reporting. The left wing conspiracy is huge and all directed to changing the subject, any subject except Benghazi where four Americans were killed.
The Daily Kos reports like no one was killed, just a few white guys, and it is time to support the Democrats version of what happened.
Is that a prediction of a GOP presidential win? Because I predict she will be the Demonrat candidate.
Or just as Elijah Cummings has said: "Death is a part of life."
If the opposition does not play the “what does it matter” clip 24/7, they deserve to loose.
