Clittons Canidacy has to Ride Through BENGHAZI Agin, Because IT Matters!
The big story is Benghazi, because it involves the frontrunner, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And the implications are serious.
...Republicans playing the long game know that the real issue here isn’t the current Democrat in the White House but derailing the chances of the woman who wants to be the next one.
Washington is on the edge of its seat as the House Oversight committee gets ready to hear testimony from whistleblowers who say that the Obama administration botched the response to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate and then covered up the nature of the raid.
While Democrats express outrage that Republicans are “politicizing” the tragic events that led to the first killing of a U.S. ambassador since the Carter administration, everyone now agrees that not only was the situation mishandled but that the Obama administration didn’t come clean.
In the best telling of events for Clinton, she sidestepped the incident, allowing Obama intimates to take the fall. In the worst telling, Clinton was part of decisions that left Americans vulnerable, denied them assistance under fire and then elided when the time came to go public about the attack.
Neither is particularly helpful to a woman whose 2016 supporters see her service as secretary of State as the key to presenting Clinton as the next commander in chief. Clinton angrily defended her record when called to testify in January about the incident, famously shouting “What difference does it make?” about the false talking points offered by the administration in the wake of the attack.
But righteous indignation can only work once. And if a politician can’t make it stick, it can actually make things worse.
GOP cuts embassy security funding and then wonders why they aren't protected.
Can't make up how stupid these tea billies are.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.
On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security."
"Absolutely," Chaffetz said. "Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”
Clearly Republicans are anti-women. They will do anything to stop a woman from becoming President of the United States. Their motto is to keep a woman barefoot and pregnant. They don't believe rape can cause a pregnancy. They believe an aspirin between a woman's legs can stop a pregnancy. They are against contraception and abortion and helping the babies of unwed mothers. Republicans hate women.
