Clinton: Benghazi Probes 'More of a Reason to Run'
ABC News ^ | June 9, 2014 | By KEN THOMAS

Posted on 06/09/2014 4:13:36 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Hillary Rodham Clinton said in an interview airing Monday that she feels emboldened to run for president because of Republican criticism of her handling of the deadly 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

In an interview with ABC News, Clinton said the Benghazi inquiry from Republicans gives her a greater incentive to run for president because she considers the multiple investigations into the attacks "minor league ball" for a country of the United States' stature. But she said she's still undecided.

"It's more of a reason to run, because I do not believe our great country should be playing minor league ball. We ought to be in the majors," Clinton said. "I view this as really apart from — even a diversion from — the hard work that the Congress should be doing about the problems facing our country and the world."

Yes, the leftists and progressives still have a few remaining checks and balances on governmental corruption and malfeasance left to obliterate and Hillary’s just the gal to finish the job.

“Minor league ball”?

Hillary is the only person to strike out playing t-ball using a tennis racket as a bat.

Why is it when I read things like this, I look to see if it is satire?

Some say Bill Clinton had charm. I guess you had to be a liberal to pick up on it. To me, he came across like a conman used car salesman.

It’s interesting, though, that not even Hillary’s staunchest supporters claim she is charming. Instead, they work hard at banning the word ‘bossy’. Iow, this is an unappealing woman devoid of even a veneer of charm. Her favorable ratings always uptick when she’s not running for anything. Without fail, they tank when she announces. Some Dems have convinced themselves she is their best hope for ‘16. The smarter ones know better.

Why shouldn't she be emboldened? She learned that no matter what dispicable acts she committs the media and the scum in this country who vote Democrat will still support her.

“Clinton: Benghazi Probes ‘More of a Reason to Run’ “

I would imagine it’s quite easier to suppress information when you’re the POTUS.

Where have we heard this before? McCain. A couple others whose names I’ve forgotten. Back them in a corner, challenge them, and instead of listening to their constituents, they say it’s more of a reason to run again. How deaf can they be? Oh, wait a minute, we KNOW they’re deaf...... They don’t care.

More of a reason to run?

Why?

Because once she is in the White House she can vacuum all the records on Benghazi and shove them down the memory hole.

There they can join the Vince Foster murder records, Obama’s birth certificate, the Clintons sale of nuclear secrets to China, etc....

After all, it wasn’t fudged up expense reports Sandy Berger was stealing from the National Archives and hiding in his under-drawers, was it?

How dare you! Don't you know that you are violating the American's With Disabilities Act by questioning frau shrillary? She suffered a debilitating concussion, which as far as the demonrats are concerned doubly qualifies her for the residency.

So she is running to stay out of jail. Explains why she would risk taking the job with her medical condition.

Indeed it is much easier to suppress information as POTUS.
Ask anyone who knows about the DOJ investigation of LBJ prior to the JFK assassination.
He was about to be dumped from the ticket and prosecuted for his corrupt dealings with Billy Sol Estes in Texas.
After the current pResident, LBJ had to be the worst and most corrupt- followed by Wilson, FDR, and Clinton. I would add Lincoln and Johnson, but I will narrow the list to presidents after 1900.

Of course she thinks that, and of course Republican criticism would motivate her to run. Why? Because she is a shallow, predictable, self-centered, ethically challenged person who has sold her life, and hurt people she could have helped, all for the pathetic reason that she wants to be ‘special’. It really comes down to that.
