‘Flat-Out Bullsh*t’: Limbaugh Weighs in on Clinton’s Benghazi Testimony

Heres Rush Limbaughs Reaction to Secretary of State Hillary Clintons Benghazi Testimony

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing to testify about the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four men dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

And although Clinton’s testimony offered very little in the area of new information, a notable moment occurred when Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) repeatedly asked whether the attack was carried out by an organized group of terrorists or whether it was a spontaneous riot — as the White House initially claimed.

“[W]e were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact and the American people could have known that within days,” Sen. Johnson said. “And they didn’t know that.”

Clinton was not happy with his line of questioning.

“With all respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans,” Clinton responded.

“What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator,” she added.

Unsurprisingly, many right-leaning pundits and analysts responded to Clinton’s “what difference does it make?” line with anger and shock, but perhaps the strongest reaction came from conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“This is flat-out bullsh*t! What did she do to save anybody? Can anyone cite a single thing? She didn’t do anything to save anybody!” Limbaugh said, challenging her claim that she did everything in her power to help Ambassador Stevens. “The ‘difference’ is that you were lying through your teeth about it, Mrs. Clinton, and you knew it!”

“What difference does it make the administration lied to the American people? What difference does it make the president lied to the American people? What difference does it make Jay Carney lied to the American people? What difference does it make that Susan Rice lied to the American people on six different shows (or five)? What difference does it make that Hillary Clinton lied to the American people?

“What difference does any of it make?” he stressed.

The conservative radio host continued in the vein, challenging Clinton’s flippant tone and reprimanding the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for spending more time heaping praise on her than asking tough questions about the September, 11, 2012 attack.

First of all, the Republicans did a piss poor job on asking the tough questions.  They let her off the hook and did not ask her about the F15s and other security measures that should have took place.  However, Rush is correct with his accessment of Clinton's response.

Never will get to the bottom of this.

We know that it was an arms smuggling operation, it is not in the Dems or Reps interest for the American People or people of the world to know what was going on there.

They basically asked her the same questions in different formats for 5 hours.

I agree 100% with this statement.

I really didn't expect to get any straight answers out of her anyway.  She's had three months to learn her lines and come up with a good script.  She's a very good actress too.

And, I also blame Congress for not following through on their questions, and having a combined concise line of questioning, instead of 10 or 15 different questions from each person.

That's weird, because knowing why it happened might help prevent further American Deaths.

I believe Rand Paul and a young Congressman from Illinois did. Don't recall his name. Unfortunately, many were too soft & pertinent questions were ignored. Democrats kissed her behind for favorable points with their liberal constituents and a smile from Hillary~

I really don't like Limbaugh and I don't pay any attention to what he says.
