Republicans Are Absolutely Terrified of Hillary Clinton

Republicans Are Absolutely Terrified of Hillary Clinton

hillaryI’ve seen a lot of political ridiculousness in my lifetime, but this Benghazi obsession by the right-wing media is some kind of next-level insanity.

But it’s not just their media—in January, Rand Paul called Benghazi the “worst tragedy since 9/11.”

No, seriously, he said that.

Personally, I’d say the over 4,000 American deaths in Iraq, a war which produced exactly zero WMD’s and had nothing to do with the attack on September 11, 2001, would be considered a worse tragedy.

But that’s how pathetic many conservatives have acted when it comes to the terrorist attack in Benghazi.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to diminish life. Whenever somebody dies at the hands of a terrorist, it’s a tragic event. However, for the party which started 2 wars (sending thousands to their deaths) to seem disgusted and appalled because 4 Americans died in Libya—give me a break.


Especially when the vast majority of these people couldn’t care less about those who died in Benghazi.  Hell, they re-elected Bush in 2004—how many Americans had died in Afghanistan and Iraq by then?  I promise you a few more than 4.

They also seem to completely ignore the fact that American embassies suffered 11 different attacks while Bush was President—again, the same man many of them voted for twice.

But their “outrage” over Benghazi has nothing to do with the deaths of 4 Americans and everything to do with the fact Republicans are terrified of Hillary Clinton.  Somewhere in the back channels of the political world, the “talk” must be pretty definitive about Hillary and her plans to run for President in 2016.

And Republicans are flipping right the hell out.

See, Republicans did all they could to try and sabotage President Obama to get him out of the White House in 2012.  This, of course, failed miserably.  Their only recourse to this defeat was, “Well, we’ve got 2016.”

But let me break this down very simply; Hillary Clinton is popular—very popular.  How popular, you ask?  According to Gallup, she’s more popular than both President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

So, if Republicans got crushed by President Obama (someone who’s seen less favorably than Hillary Clinton) just how in the hell do you think they’ll do against her in 2016?

They know they stand absolutely zero chance at beating her.  That’s why they’re trying to make Benghazi into some giant conspiracy where she’s painted as the one who was incompetent.  It’s the only thing they have that might be able to put some kind of dent in her armor.

They’re absolutely terrified, and it’s hilarious.  Even a friend of mine who doesn’t really follow politics at all (but does watch the news) said yesterday, “What is with Fox News and Republicans trying to create some huge thing about Benghazi?  I don’t even follow politics and you can tell the only reason they care is because they know Hillary is probably running in 2016.”  I just laughed and thanked him for being a great example to support my theory.

A guy with no political affiliation whatsoever, who doesn’t really follow politics (he’s novice at best), sat there and pinpointed exactly what the right-wing media has been doing with Benghazi.  He identified exactly what is going on, with absolutely no bias at all in his political ideology—because he has none.

 Hilary Clinton doesn't deserve to be a dog catcher.  She certainly doesn't deserve to be president.  From 1/23/13 testimony before Congress:

Hillary on Libya: 'What Difference Does It Make?'

Print ArticleSend a Tip

After being pressed today by Republican Senator Ron Johnson to explain how it was that over the course of weeks, the Obama Administration stood by an absurd story claiming that four Americans were murdered in Libya due to a spontaneous protest gone bad, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played the indignation card.

Because she obviously had no answer to justify the ongoing White House deception, Secretary Clinton chose theatrics over a straight answer and clarity:

-----------

 

-- 

With all due respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make?

When Hillary Clinton was a young lawyer in 1974, she earned her bones in DC as a member of the impeachment inquiry staff during the Watergate scandal. But why? What difference did a little burglary make when thousands were dying in Vietnam?

Poor Condi Rice. Why didn't she pull this during the 9/11 hearings? "What difference does it make what we knew and when we knew it, Senator? 3,000 Americans that September morning!"

Yeah, that would've have gone over real well with the media.

But Rice never would have done such a thing, because she and the Bush Administration had nothing to hide.

The Obama administration, however, cannot say the same.

It was a smart ploy, though, because Hillary knows the media's already written headlines claiming her "brilliant" testimony today has secured her place in a 2016 White House. Heck, if she manages to work support for "marriage equality" into today's testimony, the media coronation will begin before the day's out.

But let's be honest, these hearings are completely unnecessary. After all, the filmmaker responsible for all of this is in prison. Case closed. 

Bottom line: Four Americans died to gross negligence and incompetence on her watch. Regardless, by the time the Sunday shows air, the media will turn Libya into a triumph for Hillary.

Nobody need taint someone who has already done it herself.

She's already tainted. Despite what the MSM would have you believe. Nothing she has said during this scandal is even remotely brilliant, and the truth will win out in the end.
