With that inane response to questioning at a Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Hillary Clinton put forth the far left’s attitude about every hypocritical position they take and about anything that proves them wrong. Nothing matters to one self-righteously convinced of being right. Facts are useless and reality doesn’t exist.
To keep a proper perspective and context, Hillary’s response was: “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.” Interestingly, she contradicts herself with this arrogant and flippant remark.
“Figuring out what happened”, as she agreed “our job” was, actually does depend on the difference she sneeringly dismissed. That’s why the hearing was taking place. Of course, Hillary came to this hearing fully intent upon an offensive approach. Her tactic was to take the high road, aghast at the very idea of her competence, experience, professionalism or politics being questioned. In other words, she came as a hardcore liberal.
Sadly but unsurprisingly, the liberal media loved her for being obstinately aggressive and unforthcoming. A terrorist attack on a US embassy resulting in the murder of four American citizens doesn’t matter as much as toeing the political line. That line includes protecting a possible future presidential candidate from having to take responsibility for actions or inactions that contributed to the debacle.
No one died or was injured in the Watergate scandal, but Nixon was held to the fire and forced to resign. Bill Clinton’s lying under oath brought the same “What difference does it make” attitude espoused by Hillary. Could there be two different and hypocritical standards working here? You be the judge.
