Rush Limbaugh responded to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s Benghazi testimony on Wednesday — and he wasn’t happy. To say the least. Pointing to Clinton’s much-circulated “what difference, at this point, does it make?” remark, Limbaugh tore into Senate hearing and Clinton’s answers.
Replaying Clinton saying they were “people trying in real time to get to the best information,” Limbaugh responded: “That’s flat-out bullshit! … What did she do to save anybody?” [More]
We’ve seen Hillary dodging bullets in Bosnia, Hillary of the missing White Water Papers, Hillary the poor black charwoman; and now we have Hillary weeping over the flag-draped coffins (Because this is personal, Mister) of Benghazi 9-11 victims. And what difference does it make what went wrong? Whether it was flash mob or terrorist or… or … They’re dead, dead, I tell you!!!
“As I have said many times, I take responsibility,” Clinton said, adding that she directed the response to the attack on 9/11, briefed President Obama and stood in the Rose Garden with him when he called it “a terrorist attack” on 9/12.
Did you get that, stenographer? Obama said ‘terrorist’. In the Rose Garden. Once. On 9-12, 2012. Just like George W. Bush said terrorist. Or tuurrrrruurrist. However Bush said it. Obama said it, ask Candy Crowley.
Then Hillary turned around and denied responsibility.
“People have accused Ambassador Rice and the administration of misleading Americans…nothing could be further than the truth,” Clinton said. “I wasn’t involved in the talking points process.”
So, like, I’m responsible, but not responsible. Ambassador Rice? Nothing could be further from the truth… Oh, and I had NOTHING to do with the dumb bitch’s talking points.
The Secretary continues:
“We have no doubt they were terrorists, they were militants, they attacked us, they killed our people but what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing is still unknown,” Clinton said.
Hillary, listen carefully. You went to Yale; you can get this: They are al Qaeda terrorists. Who are at war with us. They want to kill us. They were attacking a consulate and killing our people. That is, in a nutshell, what they were doing and why.
Oh but continue Madam Secretary:
When asked by Senator Jim Risch (R -ID) if she chose U.N. Ambassador Rice to go on to five Sunday shows and blame the terrorist attack on an online anti-Muslim video, she responded: “No. I did not Senator. And let me take this opportunity to address it. Because, obviously, even though I haven’t had a chance to testify, we have seen the resulting debate and concerns about this.”
What, you were in the shower?
Haven’t had a chance to testify? You’ve been harder to run down than the cure for AIDS. First there’s wine tasting in Australia, then the Benghazi flu, then you conked your head and there might be a hematoma and we’re praaaaaying to God, wherever She is, that it’s not a brain tumor.
Busy. Haven’t had a chance. Since… whenever. Tell them what you are going to say, say it, and then tell them what you said.
