I read with great interest the invidious drivel offered up by Brent Budowsky yesterday:
“[Sen. Rand] Paul suggesting he would have fired Clinton is like the Little League coach suggesting he would have fired Babe Ruth. I expect Hillary Clinton to run for and win the presidency, and I very much hope Paul runs against her. If he does, Hillary Rodham Clinton will pulverize Rand Paul into outer space.”
He further described Paul’s comment that had he been president he would have relieved her of her post as “a distemper that is far outside the mainstream of American life.”
Paul said, “Had I been President at the time, and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not read the cables from Ambassador Stevens—I would have relieved you of your post. I think it’s inexcusable.”
Sorry Brent, that is not an example of distemper, it is an example of the outrage many Americans feel about how this regime left four Americans to die a horrible death at the hands of barbarians.
To say that Budowsky is smitten with Hillary is a glaring understatement. On December 5, 2012 this idiot of The Left wrote:
“…the possibility that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton could seek the Democratic nomination in 2016, the possibility of an FDR-magnitude Democratic realignment comes clearly into view.”
“The FDR-magnitude expansive coalition that Hillary Clinton could inspire by tapping powerful demographic waves that define our politics and reaching across gender, age and racial lines is a mathematically perfect counterpoint to the shrinking-tent Republicanism that demonizes moderation and tolerance.”
“While it might appear counterintuitive, the prospect of the Obama-Clinton years will enhance and invigorate the political strength of President Obama throughout his second term, enhance and expand the achievements and historical legacy of the Obama presidency, cement the deserved historical reputation of President Bill Clinton as a first-tier president and bring a Hillary Clinton presidency with an FDR-magnitude realignment that will define the politics and policies of America for a generation.”
Apparently, Mr. Budowsky swooned when Secretary Clinton gave a performance worthy of the highly vaunted Juilliard School of Drama when she choked up saying, “I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag draped caskets off the plane at Andrews. I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children.”
This woman has had months to carefully prepare for her testimony before Congress on what happened in Benghazi.
In an astonishing exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson, Clinton said, “With all due respect, the fact is we had 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? What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Months to prepare for this investigation and she declares what difference does it make?
There is every reason to demand to know what difference it makes. Those four families around whom she put her arms and the wives left alone to raise their children want to know who lied about what and who failed to secure the Benghazi mission. It makes all the difference in the world to them. This is about an administration and a State Department unable to come to terms with its own mistakes.
I want to be clear about Mrs. Clinton’s quivering voice and her near tears. I genuinely believe she is haunted by the ghosts of Ambassador Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods.
If this woman has any conscience at all, I hope the haunting memories of Benghazi are the lash that will flog all her tomorrows. Why should the families of the four dead Americans be the only ones to suffer that fate?
