Hillary Speaks by Remote Satellite to Dodge Protest by Benghazi Mom
Frontpage Mag ^ | 04/13/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Hillary’s profiles in courage continues as she avoided a protest by the mother of one of her victims, canceling a personal appearance and instead appearing remotely by satellite.

A crowd of sign-wielding protesters gathered Friday morning outside the San Diego Convention Center to voice their discontent with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of the Benghazi crisis.

Among them was Pat Smith, mother of San Diego native Sean Smith, one of the four Americans who died in the highly-publicized 2012 attacks on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. She has been a prominent voice in the ensuing fallout, with Clinton and others in the Obama administration accused of not acting on requests for adequate security at the compound and then covering up the severity of the attacks.

Smith, who sat in a wheelchair Friday, joined about 75 demonstrators as they marched in front of the center while Clinton delivered a speech via satellite at a health care convention.

Smith, a Clairemont resident, told the protesters about the experience of losing her only son. Her voice quavered as she demanded that Clinton give more information about the Benghazi attacks.

“I want everyone to know that if you send people out, they better have backup,” said Smith, 73.

Following her son’s death, Smith said she has developed health issues and now struggles with heart problems and cancer.

In her remarks to the crowd, Smith also condemned any calls for Clinton to run for the 2016 presidency.

“Hillary cannot be president,” she said. “Anybody but Hillary. She lied to me to my face.”

Gosh, how is Hillary going to campaign for President if this Benghazi thing keeps popping up every time she shows up to make a speech? It would probably be as hard to keep people who are committed to raising these questions out of her campaign appearances as it would be to outlaw shoes.

Hmmm....

Pat Smith can keep this witch off the ticket if she is brave enough to dog her campaign stops.

Hillary looked into this womans eyes at that hangar in front of her son’s coffin. And lied to her. It doesn’t get any colder.

But, Hillary so bravely dodged a shoe thrown at her the other day. Wasn’t that story pushed by the MSM to show how courageous and determined Hillary was in the face of hostility?????

I never heard more about the girl who threw the shoe though. I guess she’s not a conservative tea party gun clinger type, because if she was, the MSM would have been all over that aspect of the story.

She could gain real support from real people to help her.

She certainly won't get the Cindy Sheehan treatment from the media...

100%, i guess a shoe was enough to scare it out of any further exposure at the pointy end of politics for awhile

Well, perhaps the shoe attack will be inflated to her being under fire!

That’s an absolutely brilliant graphic!!!

It’s exactly what I had in mind, when I posted #32 in this thread:

“Hillarious. Is she going to continue to remote broadcasts while campaigning for the 2016 democrat nomination?”

Next thing you know, she will be hiding an some uncharted cave in Tora-Bora shaking her fists at us. If we could be so lucky.

We should start a fund and have this woman appear at EVERY Hillary event from now till 2016! If Hillary is THAT afraid of her, then this woman is an effective weapon.
