ROFLMAO.. This was a political show trial.

The first mistake was The GOP brought out their "B" Team to confront Hillary Clinton and, in doing so looked like a bunch of whining frauds still humiliated from the shelling they took in Nov elections.

The day turned out to be Hillary's first Campaign Stop for her 2016 Run to the White House...

Now they can stop parading the dead bodies of Ambassador Stevens for political purposes and fund the State Department correctly so that we can provide comprehensive security and not hire the cheapest contractor who bids.

After all these months the truth is still the GOP Budget Cuts to the State Department is responsible for the ineffective security measures in Benghazi and around the world protecting our diplomats.

Penny Pinching on diplomats security to provide tax cuts for the Oligarch.

The Republicans who voted to cut the State Department Funding should be bull whipped on the capital stairs.

Hillary kicked butt with a smile today........ ROFLMAO

Hillary revealed the GOP parasites to be the bags of hot air they are. They came to a Senate and House Hearing unprepared with hear say from their Conservative Propaganda campaign to confront Hillary Clinton of all people.......

These same Imbeciles voted to the man to cut State Department Security and Facility Construction Program Funds which in turn directly lead to the deaths of Ambassador Stevens, each of them should be brought up on Federal Manslaughter Charges!

Petraeus has already resigned in disgrace over Benghazi and the right can’t get over the fact that the American people gave President Obama a 2nd term with a mandate after he humiliated Romney when he told him,“Please; proceed”.
LOL, Never bet against BLACK you dumb tea-baggers.
You are right of course. No one really expected better from obama or any of his crowd.

For the most part the testimony was offuscation. Being the delay of her testimony in particular it is not surprising.

Somethings to remember here with Hillary and the Obama Administration in particular. Flashback 2008 Democratic Presidential Primaries and Convention-Many accuse the Obama campaign of stealing the election. Obama promises Hillary a signifgant cabinet post if she either concedes and/or does not pursue allegations of fraud.

Flash foward. Budgets cuts(which should have been pursued much earlier & harder IF that detrimental-state of the art embassys don't count) and intelligence reports could not be slapped in the face of the administration. Looking forward to 2016 she really can't criticize anything falling back on the administration for signing off on or ignoring. The reason being if she wants the Obama camp behind her in 2016 she can't ruffle their feathers. At the sametime the Obama staffers are worried about re-election.

It's unfortunetly politics as usual.

The reason the Democrats don't care about the Benghazi murders is because Obama voters wouldn't care if it were their own Sons who were murdered. It's a "progressive' thing.

If she was stoic and unemotional, the Frightwingers would have called her a
Cold hearted beyotch.
So she stands up against blatant bullying, expresses feeling and is called
Over emotional, deranged, drunk. Ect.
She was screwed either way....

You mean another parasite fast tracked to hell. You want real equality but not what goes with it. Perhaps someone smashing her skull against a wall or treated like vermin in any apparent criminal cases or putting your life on the line in reality, even if hired and treated with kids gloves in dangerous jobs. This is just a few things about being male among all of the rotten things done to the females sex over the eons by those nasty men. Perhaps you should live a life of relative humbleness and not spend time with vanity, selfishness, and other sins and give most of your possessions away to others as a way to prove your worthiness. She is corrupted and evil. It seems the fairer sex is being used by their own flaws to bring down America in this chapter of world history full of misery. Soon you will reap what you sewed. And everyone else has to be in on the ride.

As usual, she talked alot and said absolutely nothing. It was disgraceful how every Democrat that questioned her spent all their time verbally worshiping her. It's sad that our country is run by this caliper of person. Phony, self promoting bufoons. The Republicans, while trying to get answers, looked more interested in promoting their party than anything else. Both partes suck.

Right back at you Le Jimbo, you and the right are using those deaths as a political issue to score points and makes snide remarks about President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton.

How disgusting.

Clinton did well. She avoided any explanation for the deaths and reminded us all that must face the FACT that we dramatically lowered our expectations for positive out comes by re-electing nothing more than Obama.

Yes, we should all care about 4 deaths in Benghazi (a not so safe country) and 20 children in a killing by one of our own folks in our Land of the Brave and Home of the Guns (supposedly a safe country with all those hot/warm/cold guns.
