Skip to comments.Eagan: Hillary Clinton is so over Benghazi thing
Posted on 06/01/2014 7:52:59 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
One great big GOP/Fox News rebuke.
Thats the early word on Hillary Clintons Benghazi explanation in her new book, Hard Choices, out on June 10.
Shes defiant, not defensive.
She blames her Ben-ghazi critics for exploiting the tragedy over and over as a political tool against her that has nothing to do with justice for the four Americans who died there.
Since thats an accurate summation of Republicans cynical agenda on Benghazi and since an awful lot of Americans can see that clearly Id say those who think Ben-ghazi will sink Clinton in 2016, well, they better think again.
Its not happening.
Shes got her well-oiled talking points down.
And the GOPs endless outrage looks phonier every day.

Hillary has Benghazi blood on her hands and it will never be over, ya think?
Her “Animal House” defense.
Rumor is that Hillary had a breakdown when this happened - what kind of President has a breakdown when the going gets tough?
Words of the oh-so-guilty
Some one set them up the Al-Qaeda bomb!
There was no surprise about the attack. There was no 'failure of intel.' The attack was predicted in precise detail a month before it occurred. The draw down of security had to be intentional.
The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.
Keeping the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) in the dark about the attack had to be intentional.
Tweeting apologies for the 'anti-Muhammed video' beginning early that morning, repeatedly blaming all the violence at all of our embassies on the 'video' and making an apology video to air in Pakistan had to be intentional.
Stevens presence in Benghazi on 9-11 had to be intentional.
It will never be over for the parents of the dead.
what if her daughter was abandoned during a terrorist attack, murdered and dragged through the streets with her pants down? Would Hillary get over it?
She could get away with this ‘defense/tactic’ in media interviews, news stories, speaking engagements and the like where she will not be questioned.
But, in a debate scenario, she won’t be able to effectively counter a righteous opposing candidate’s sustained attack against her on the real points of Benghazi, even with complicity from the likes of Candy Crowley or other lap dogs.
The question is, however, whether an opposing candidate will have the will and capacity to wage that attack. I submit ANY GOPe establishment candidate will NOT.
In my opinion, what is going to take to bring Hillary down is Ted Cruz - not Rand Paul, not Christie, not Rubio, not ANY Bush, and not Ben Carson. They’re all appeasers in my opinion.
Dude! How desperate is Hillary Clinton to find people to spin her Benghazi lies that lead to the death of four Americans? She hired former Obama Dude Tommy Vietor who is now famous for saying to Bret Baier that Benghazi Dude, that was like two years ago
...And in a sign of the concerted effort to rebut the ongoing controversy in a cohesive way, Clintons camp has brought on former National Security Council spokesman and longtime President Barack Obama hand Tommy Vietor to assist in the response to the book, a source familiar with the plan said
Yo, dude! The middle east is blowing up and we get to man the Situation Room tonight!
That's bitchin,' Tommy!
Only incompetent leftist idiots like Obama and Hillary would not have had extra measures in place on every 9/11 anniversary at every American installation worldwide.
Instead they had less than usual security solely for political posturing .
They both belong in prison for their culpability in the death of the four Americans and their willing failure to carry out one of the most important responsibilities of their jobs.
How many Clinton scandals have we thought - “surely they can’t survive this one!”
Only to weather the storm?
I suppose the real question is ... How much are we outnumbered by low information voters?
In 2003, Hillary Clinton screeched “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”
Hillary is using Tedddy Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick defense. “How dare the right wing make political hay over the tragic death of a young women/four men!”
In Lefty Bizzaro World, negligent cowards who cover up their deeds become victims.
Libs know the defense will work as long as the press plays along.
That is a truly bizarre piece of propagit. Egan acknowledges that Hillary is a serial liar, but, Ho, Hum - the Republicans are poopy heads.
“What? Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
This nobody will now find fame and fortune as a Hillary flack and apologist.
The same person who wrote this....
In your column, Its time to scrap the St. Patricks Day Parade, you wrote among other objectionable things: Not a single politician should march.
Nobody should, actually, save for maybe John Wacko Hurley and his pathetic band of Allied War Veterans, whose parade glorifies warfare at a time when veterans and most of America after 11 years of bloodshed want nothing more than peace.
Pathetic band of Allied War Veterans?
Really? Whose parade glorifies war? Really? - See more at:
Obscure Film Mocking Muslim Prophet Sparks Anti-U.S. Protests in Egypt and Libya

A Timeline Of The Attacks In Libya And Egypt -- And The Responses
Brian Beutler September 12, 2012, 8:50 PM EDT
(his posting was intended to buttress the phony "Youtube video" lie but it also exposes the exact timeline of the tweets from the Cairo embassy, the State Dept. and Hillary Clinton herself making apologies for the "Youtube video.")
In anticipation of the ensuing uproar, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issues a statement at 6:17 a.m. ET, according to State Department officials, condemning all attempts to "abuse" free speech rights to offend people of any religion.
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims - as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

“But, in a debate scenario, she wont be able to effectively counter a righteous opposing candidates sustained attack against her on the real points of Benghazi, even with complicity from the likes of Candy Crowley or other lap dogs.”
True, and any possible GOP presidential candidate who would not do this is not qualified to be the candidate.
Bingo. Hillary will just keep going and the MSM will roll a revised version of "It's just about sex; let's move on".
Look to Trey Gowdy!
Trey Gowdy could achieve heroic status during these hearings.
But what if Hillary announces, “F*** off, Republicans! I’m not appearing before your stinking committee so go bleep yourselves!”
Could she get away with it? Real question.
Where did you hear that?
I wonder what people like Hillary think about the possibility of judgement after this life is over.
Right. We are talking about Hillary the Great here. Conqueror of Kosovo, Libya, Egypt, Syria and the Ukraine. It is just as likely that she setup Stevens so that Obama would have a major foreign policy failure that would cost him the reelection. Then Romney would have codified Obamacare and Amnesty for the Hildabeast until she reclaimed the throne while still young enough to do something with it. Unfortunately Hillary the Great did not know that Emperor Zero had already sown up the reelection with vote fraud and IRS intimidation.
Kinda like watching a Game of Thrones episode (recently watched a marathon of the first few seasons).
And I am SOO over the Hillary Clinton thing..
That might be ok if those four guys were over being dead.
None of them have answered why they ran a disinformation campaign against the nation to intentionally propagate false information.
And knowing it was false information, Hillary lied to the faces of the parents of those heroes killed that day.
The verdict is that she is a liar.
It has nothing to do with republican talking points. It has to do with what happened that day.
Hillary's book stoutly declares that everything there is to know about Benghazi has already been revealed....she is hoping to silence Republicans by charging politics is behind the continuing probe.
Woodward will not be dissuaded. ".....one of the questions I have -- did she keep a diary? Obama confirmed to Woodward that he keeps a diary. Woodward noted. Ronald Reagan kept a very detailed diary of Iran Contra, and he finally turned it over.
The veteran Post reporter also knocked Clinton and Obama....... noting its not all about partisan politics. There are facts, he asserted. There is neutral inquiry. And there is a way to look at this and get that information and see if there is new information.
Mmmmmmmm----next thing you know, Bob Woodward will be comparing Benghazi to Watergate.......
