Senate & house investigations on benghazi expose repubican's gross ignorance
The investigations today were well worth watching.
McCain, Rohrbacher, Rand Paul, Ron Johnson, and Jeff Duncan were offensive, petty and uninformed.
They bahaved like the shameful dirt diggers they are.
Not only did their bahavior suggest they had no real interest in learning what changes we should make in order to keep our foreign assets and Ambassadors safer, or learning what went wrong and why, but their offensive behavior, references to proven RW media lies and sheer gossip which has already been exposed as ridiculous, only highlighted their own ugly intentions ignorance.
Some of their absurdities already exposed for being laughable, and untrue, came straight from Hannity, who said for example, that we had real time video of the Benghazi attack, a totally proven lie.
Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, nailed it! Her composure, full command of the broad policies and details of our current circumstances around the world, including addressing thoroughly our coming threats resulting from the Arab Spring, and the many countries struggling to create for themselves safety, human rights and success in building democratic principles in their countries, and being successful in fighting off terrorist infiltration, was extensive, and extremely informative.
It became very obvious when the questioner wasn't really interested in any of that, only in trying to cling to their original dirt slinging, pre-election witch hunt, accusing a cover-up which never happened in the first place.
Secretary Clinton's broad understanding of foreign affairs, current curcumstances around the world, specific threats and risks, along with her overall brilliance, and willingness to openly discuss and address every question, with great patience, obvious high intentions, and spontaneity, served as a stunning contrast to the petty, rude and juvenile Republican partisan ugliness and ignorance, some of their questions actually laughable!
It is all available on C-Span, and well worth watching. The overall poor behavior of the Republicans, certainly explains why she has a 67% to 80% approval rating, and the Tea Party, only 9%, cockroaches and dental root canals, being more popular than the Republican Party at this time. I expect these numbers will continue to worsen for the Republicans, and expand for Secretary Clinton.
After the airing of the investigative events, even Republicans were calling into C-Span, saying they were embarrassed and disgusted with the behavior of Rand Paul, and John McCain, in particular, Paul actually showed great disrespect, stating that if he was president he would relieve her of her duties, LMAO, like he could ever be elected president, in the first place, and McCain, basically calling her a liar! Both of them behaved disgracefully, and the others I mentioned, were also truly repulsive.
None of their nastiness moved her off her brilliant responses, and only once, when it was entirely appropriate, did she ever become animated, or show any irritability with the extremely poor, rude and inappropriate behavior.
All in all, Hilary was by far the winner. If she decides to run for president, She will blow any competitor away!
The few Republicans who actually were there to learn, and had an honest interest in learning what changes should be made in order to provide better protection for our brave and valuable Americans in foreign service, further served to highlight annd contrast the poor behavior of offensive dirt diggers, their genuine interest naturally presented in a manner which was mostly polite.
I highly recommend watching both presentations, one in the Senate, and the other before a Congressional committee.
Hillary testified most of the day, and she was truly impressive and amazing!
