After being pressed today by Republican Senator Ron Johnson to explain how it was that over the course of weeks, the Obama Administration stood by an absurd story claiming that four Americans we´re murdered in Libya due to a spontaneous protest gone bad, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played the indignation card. (Snip) With all due respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make?
Comments: The picture here with the article says it all. She is shouting down to US little people in this quote.
Well, based on her logic, what difference does it make why a mentally disturbed kid murder little kids in a school? What difference does it make that a whack job slaughtered innocent people in a movie theater? What difference does it make when a Theodore Bundy serially kills young women? Shouldn´t we just punish them and not worry about the why? Its not as if we discovered why people do evil things we might be able to crafted solutions to prevent others from committing evil. And since we don´t give a hoot in Hades why, can we now eliminate the sill arse ´hate´ crimes nonsense? After all, who cares?
Bebghazi...because some guys outside for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans. Yeah, that´s the ticket! Four months of thinking about it and this is how the rotten Hillbag decides to couch it! Wow, just WOW!
What difference does it make if we: LIE about Libya? LIE about oral sex with an intern? LIE about fraudulent stealing of this last election? LIE about a phony concussion/blood clot? LIE about not having enough Congressional funding to prevent four murders in Libya? LIE about abortion, birth control, health care, gun control, or anything said out of Joe Bite Me Biden´s mouth?
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE???
I´ll tell you what difference it makes! My country that I love so much and served is now practically bankrupt, economically and morally, Hildebbeast! Thanks to punk-ass idiot liars like YOU! And your filthy pasty hubby LIAR, and that pResident foreign exchange student Arab LIAR! And his Preacher LIAR!And his Chewbacca wife LIAR! And his VP LIAR! And most of his administration appointee LIARS! And all your democrat strategist LIARS! And your Axelrod LIAR! And your CARNEY LIAR! And most of all, your rump-swab lap dog enemedia LIARS who carry your lies to us in newspapers, on TV news, and even in their phony advertising. I am so SICK of you, CANKLES, so sick I could scream! If I didnt have a VTwin to ride or a GTO to blow off steam once in a while, or this wonderful therapeutic website that I love, I might just scream my fool head off in frustration over how you have crapped all over my beloved country. YOU witch! I hope your LIES are revealed and you lose your job and disappear forever! You are a despicable liar and such a phony sad excuse for a human being...Get outta here!
What difference does it make whether they were killed by Santa or the Easter Bunny? They were killed by neither just as the disaster in Libya was caused by neither a demonstration nor people out for a walk.
By the way, who is in the light blue shawl to Hillary´s right?
Over at Ace of Spades blog, Ace has a theory that the phrase "what difference does it make" is a focus group tested phrase. PIAPS and President Jarrett know their LoVo voters don´t have a clue about Benghazi, and the media will not lift a finger to inform them.
Dispicable Mrs. slick(D!), ´soldiers on?!!!´ ...She has presided over the current State Dept.´s failures, leading to the barbaric murder of Americans. She has no defense for her inneptness as 0bama´s(D!) Sec. of State, yet her demeanor during these Congressional Hearings reflects only arrogance, the same arrogance of her boss. When confronted with stats, facts and reality, their inherent arrogance always identifies statist pols.
Today, Mrs. slick(D!) is putting on quite a textbook performance, predictably only saying she needs more $$$$!?!!!
"What difference does it make?" is just a new way of saying "This is old news, can´t we just move on?"
She doesn´t want the whole Benghazi attack scrutinized, because it will expose the fact that Benghazi was a CIA operation (not an embassy) fighting a covert proxy war against Syria. It also exposes how the Obama Administration is actively aiding al Quaeda, NOT fighting them.
Anyone who’s ever gone on a diet is told to lay off the booze because it’s high in calories. And that, of course, must make it very fattening indeed. Go onto the NHS Direct website, and you’ll be told a glass of wine contains as many calories as a slice of cake. Or if you prefer beer, the British Nutrition Foundation reminds you two pints are roughly the equivalent in calories to a full glass of single cream. So you may be surprised to learn that there’s no scientific evidence whatsoever to support the idea that alcohol makes you on weight. That’s hugely counter-intuitive, I know, because alcohol certainly is said to contain lots of calories.
President Barack Obama sounded a nostalgic personal note Sunday night and offered a rare self-assessment while criticizing congressional Republicans as an "impediment" to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party. Obama told donors the sight of Mt. Rainier illuminated by a setting sun was particularly special because it reminded him of his mother, who attended high school in the Seattle area. "I feel the spirit of my mom," he said. He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are "more focused on positioning themselves for
Los Angeles - Rather than thanking a list of friends and colleagues, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used their American Music Awards acceptance speech to send a message of tolerance on Sunday night. Ben Haggerty, the rapper known as Macklemore, accepted the award for favorite rap/hip-hop album, then quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in a live satellite feed from the rap group´s latest tour stop. "Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it," he said.
China and India’s success in weakening the latest global warming agreement created friction with other developing nations that are seeking to step up the fight against climate change. The two countries insisted on single-word changes for a deal at a United Nations conference involving 190 nations on Nov. 23. Instead of making “commitments” to roll back fossil fuel emissions, they signed up for “contributions,” a formulation that allows more flexibility in their action. Those last-minute revisions at a meeting that ran overtime by almost 30 hours underscored the reluctance of China and India to join in the sort of emissions
Washington - Hobby Lobby, a chain of crafts stores, closes on Sundays, costing its owners millions but honoring their Christian faith. The stores play religious music. Employees get free spiritual counseling. But they do not get free insurance coverage for some contraceptives, even though President Obama’s health care law requires it. Hobby Lobby, a corporation, says that forcing it to provide the coverage would violate its religious beliefs. A federal appeals court agreed, and the Supreme Court is set to decide on Tuesday whether it will hear the Obama administration’s appeal from that decision or appeals from one of
A historic agreement on Iran´s nuclear programme was made possible by months of unprecedented secret meetings between US and Iranian officials, in further signs of the accelerating detente between two of the world´s most adversarial powers, it emerged on Sunday. The meetings ran parallel to official negotiations involving five other world powers, (Snip) The Obama administration asked journalists not to publish details they had uncovered of the secret diplomacy until the Geneva talks were over for fear of derailing them. The Associated Press and a Washington-based news website, Al-Monitor, finally did so
Tokyo - Japan’s foreign minister on Sunday refused to recognize China’s newly claimed air defense zone over disputed islands, signaling that Japan would not back down as tensions increased in the maritime dispute. China on Saturday said its “air defense identification zone” would give it the right to identify and possibly take military action against aircraft near the islands in the East China Sea. The uninhabited islands are administered by Japan but claimed by China and Taiwan. China’s announcement appeared to be the latest step in what analysts have called a strategy to chip away at Japan’s claims of control of the islands.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
