Why? Even FOX has admitted that they overhyped it. Benghazi was just a political football. (Note: I'm not being flippant. Lives were lost.) However, you look at the timeline and scenario, a case cannot be made to much of the Right-Less' dismay. Republicans tried (please note distinction between Republican and Right-Less) but there was nothing more there than what was there. BTW; Thanks for the compliment. “…your views on Benghazi are puzzling.”

I read many of your posts and we do not agree on much, but the handling of Benghazi, whether Hillary or Obama take the blame, was politically a mess. I would be surprised if you disagree on that. I believe Obama tried to make Libya look like our bombing campaign was a success and the country is safer now than it was. Their reasoning alone (budget) should be enough to pis off intelligent people like you. I do consider you intelligent, but your views on Benghazi are puzzling.

We were always told that the best defense when you really screwed up is an aggressive offense where you are indignant and deny everything. Any baby boomer would recognize her performance at the Benghazi hearings as typical of this...." Obviously it worked--if this was the strategy. Softball treatment? LOL!!!! She made Cruz and Paul look like idiots. “hillary is a typical baby boomer.

I don’t think she did near as well as you said about Benghazi and it will most certainly follow her as a failure. Only time will tell, but we haven’t heard the end of it yet. She lost her cool in the hearings, not a good political quality." Not really. Just giving props where they are due. Like her or not one cannot say that she isn't intelligent or savvy. Did not do well re Benghazi? What's the latest have you heard on it? I have heard nothing really for about a couple of months. Seems like she did hold her own on that one and walked away with her head held high while popping and chewing gum. “MyTakeOnThis61 | April 2, 2013, 9:40 am —– You seem quite taken by Hillary.

All of those board appointments and the Rose Law Firm were ALL about bubba. If you don't realize that then you are incredibly naive. Those of us in Arkansas knew about hillary long before most of you even had heard her name. Those of us familiar with the Arkansas State Police assigned to protect her know much that you have never heard about. Benghazi has been covered up so you probably will never hear the truth about that. The clintons are good at covering up the truth and escaping the consequences of it. Too bad that those four Americans at Benghazi will never escape the consequences of her incompetency and ineptness. hillary can wise guy with the best of them but that does not change the fact that EVERYTHING she has is a result of her husband.

If you just want ‘hollywood’ in the foreign service then you will get it with caroline kennedy. However, she has no substance whatsoever." She has a rolodex and can make calls. That alone makes her appointment worthwhile. “… If you just want ‘hollywood’ in the foreign service then you will get it with caroline kennedy. However, she has no substance whatsoever.”

However, for many the cognitive thinking process of law and discipline and quite beneficial. “It is amazing that there are still people in this day in age who consider themselves educated and sophisticated that are ‘gaga’ over a law degree and think it qualifies you for just about everything.

If she had not been married to him you would not know anything about hillary clinton...." Are you kidding!?!? Hillary was the breadwinner for the family and "Bubba" had nothing to do with her accomplishments or success. In fact, Hillary was reviled in Arkansas because she was too career driven rather than being a "good" First Lady who talked about her favorite cookie recipes. The woman is smart and quite savvy. Hillary was known to go into board meetings and whip the pants off of all the men in the room (Yup! They were beaten by a girl) and she demonstrated that ability again during--your favorite subject-- Benghazi hearings. She pretty much made all her attackers look like fools and she walked away with another notch in her belt. “She was a ‘powerful’ lawyer because she was the wife of bubba clinton.
