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!”
