  •  I assume with Benghazi working so well on Rice (6+ / 0-)

    they'll now turn it against Clinton.  Especially if she has to face the senate on the matter before she officially leaves.  I assume if she's replaced by Kerry before testifying (concussion issue) she could then have her hearing behind closed doors - so there would be no political theater.  

    GOP will have to watch out on attacking her as "Another Clinton..." because they could be looking as "Another Bush" as their best candidate come 2016.  

    The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.

    •  Benghazhi-gate = two for the price of one (2+ / 0-)

      Of course, the main point was to trash President Obama leading into the election. But I have no doubt that the GOP also saw an opportunity for a pre-emptive strike against a possible Clinton 2016 campaign.

        and HRC's recent illness / fall / concussion has been like pouring Liquid Hannity onto a Bill Ayers bonfire.

        They're convinced the "concussion" was/is nothing more than a ploy to keep from testifying about Benghazi -- for which, of course, the entire Democrat party must be impeached.*

        These are the same folks who have tiny "Benghazi 4" ribbons on their Twitter profile avatars right next to the little Israel flags sitting beside the bald eagle head pasted over the Declaration / Constitution / 10 Commandments.  Not kidding.

        Also note that many of these same fringers are now posting pro-gun / anti-Obama / Agenda21 articles from places like and because CHEMTRAILS!!! FREEDOM!!!

    •  They will not allow Kerry hearings until she (0+ / 0-)


      They can hold up the Kerry hearings forever.  She can only dodge them for so long.

      •  Why after everything that (4+ / 0-)

        Hillary has contributed to this country do you assume in a very republican way that "she's dodging" the Benghazi hearings?

        I think the repugs are in for a big surprise. Hillary is a very smart and very tough woman. They won't look good trying to beat up on her, plus she will give as good as she gets.

        She's still SOS. And why shouldn't she rest after an illness and a concussion. In the last 4 years alone she has been a whirlwind, never stopping or taking time off.

        I don't know how she keeps it up and I'm about 10 years younger than she is.

        Another thing, I don't think she's running for President in 2016.

        •  I don't think she is either (1+ / 0-)

          but I still doubt the Repubs will let her off the hook as far as testifying.

          Yes.. she deserves to rest after an illness.  I don't begrudge her that.

          But.. sorry if I am skeptical as to the seriousness of her "injuries".  She has a concussion so bad she is out of commission for a month and never even went to the hospital?  It stretches credulity.. but we must give her the benefit of the doubt.
