Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got testy on Capitol Hill Wednesday in response to a query from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who called into question her department's accounting of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Hillary is step'n down soon so she doesn't have to play party poliitics like the GOP putzes, so she has the freedom to stand against them and do so with just the facts in hand. Which she is doing ! Good for her.

Hillary Clinton announced stepping down WAY BEFORE Benghazi but that didn't stop one GOP caveman to lie and say she was stepping down because of that.
Hillary the voice of reason amongst cave-dwellers today. Ron--what's his name... wanted her to take over the initial investigation pushing the FBI aside.....and then he would have accused her of that.
Then another neatherthal hillbilly Rand Paul didn't know that people in war zones are in danger all the time and no one was able to prevent 43 people from 2002-2008 who were killed in consulate and embassies overseas.
TO even suggest this was coverup is beyond stupid... .what would the cover up be about when it had to be well known to those sitting there in that very room..... that congress voted to underfund the embassy security before the Benghazi deaths.... because that's what conservatives do...underfund. What a waste of money and time when congress ought to be focusing on our economy. What a lady ....she withstood 8 hours in front of these jackels with class, dignity and restraint in front of their SMUG faces.
To me this was an extention of the GOP frustration for losing the election....and knowing their party is trashed with the KKK, tea-birchers and the American taliban.

Yet, President Obama will not come to her defense. Why? He is the person who was responsible for this, and has left Hillary twisting in the wind. Is this the way a President defends his cabinet? Never have I seen a Sec. of State take such an undeserved brow beating as this. The women has aged 10 years, and she is getting absolutely no support from the person responsible for this.
God help John Kerry.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article and video clips. To : Allan, on Oct 29, 2012 in an interview aired on ABC President Obama stated " “ultimately as commander in chief I’m responsible and I don’t shy away from that responsibility. My number one responsibility is to going after folks who did this and we’re going to make sure we get them and I have a pretty good track record of doing that.” Shortly after that Secretary Clinton said the she wasn't going to let the President take the responsibility and that she, as the head of the State Department would take the the responsibility for any breakdown regarding the security in Benghazi.

Allen, you make an excellent point. Why isn't Barack Obama coming to Hillary's defense? The answer could lie in the fact that Obama doesn't want his hands on anything that has failed. This could explain why he is leaving her out to dry.

I know everyone remembers how the democrats threw Hillary under the bus to make room for King Obama to run for president. I know Hillary hasn't forgotten. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior and that holds true in this situation.

John, Barack Obama says "many" things and rarely backs it up. He will say that he is responsible but you won't ever hear him say he has made a mistake. Narcissists can't do that.

One day soon Hillary Clinton will "talk." I'm sure she will have a great deal to say about this administration.

Well--ALAN Seems Hillary can handle things very well without a MAN getting involved even if it's the President of the USA. OH how you righties wish there was some problems between the Clintons and Obamas. I agree anyone would look good after GW Bush's terms but our President Obama is really a wonderful caring person as depicted in his inauguration speech. Too bad the republicans are such sad-people that they represent the ugly side of America today.

Janice you deserve another star for your posts - but the computer won't let me yet! Trying to give John B a star.... Thanks Carrie

I don't know, Janice, she is giving away her power when she raises her voice and moves her hands around. I honest to God feel sorry for her. Her goose is now cooked for 2016 and Joe Biden never knows which state he is in.

I don't know what dark and musty place you have your head, Diane, but Hillary is hardly washed up - she has earned the respect and admiration of a good many (and all while the GOP are showing what arses they are) - as for Biden, he is another good person who knows a lot about Washington and who is quite capable of a good many things. I'd also remind you that President Obama was elected to office AGAIN. Despite Citizens United, despite all the money spent, the lies told, the manipulations, Barack Obama was re-elected as our president. And so whether you like this or not, true Americans would show the respect and honor the office deserves.

It appears that some don't like the "spanking" Secretary Clinton gave the republicans.
