Brit Hume Slams Hillary Clinton’s Tenure At
State With A Laundry List Detailing Her Mediocrity

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/27/2013 2:39:38 PM

Fox News Channel Brit Hume contributor took issue with his colleagues on Sunday when he said the effusive compliments that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been showered with are largely unearned. He launched into a monologue in which he outlined why Clinton’s tenure at State has been decidedly mediocre – “competent,” but not great. After his detailed list, Hume was confronted by Juan Williams who accused him of underestimating Clinton and President Barack Obama’s first term accomplishments.

If nothing else, the benghazi mess showed that, first, Hillary was not in charge at State, and no one else seemed to be in charge. That is a slam on her as Secretary of State.
And when the president and his people huddled to come up with a public statement about Benghazi, Hillary was completely excluded. She said she didn´t select Susan Rice to appear on the sunday shows, and she did not participate in the content of what Rice would say.
Think about that. A tragedy of major proportions, on her watch, where four people died, and were in benghazi at her direction, and she is shut out of the presidential circle completely.
That tells you all you need to know about her tenure at State.

He sold his soul and FOX only looks idiotic by continuing to allow him to embarrass himself in public. The fair and balanced explanation wore out a long time ago. Juan Williams is black tokenism at its worst.

Hillary Clinton´s ill-tempered statement,"what difference does it make now" was a callous remark. This shrewish woman´s demeanor was very much like Obamas. It stated clearly: what am I doing here? Why should I, Hillary Clinton, be made to answer questions, etc. She has the same arrogant, self-important elitist attitude that so many of our present politicians possess. We now have King Barack and Queen Michelle..two self-absorbed, authorative dictatorial people sitting in the White House. If Hillary decides to run for President in 2016 I truly hope enough Americans go back in history and refresh their memories concerning Hillary and Bill Clinton. If they do this surely they could not in good conscience vote for either of them for any elected office.

She is directly responsible for the murder of the Ambassador and the staffer. She is an accomplice in the murder of the two brave Seals on the rooftop of the consulate and willingly took part in the cover up of the Benghazi debacle. The Middle East is for the most party controlled by the radical islamic savages whose stated goal is the destruction of Israel and the United States of America (how the media loves to gloss over that last fact!). Great, competent? She has been an unmitigated disaster as Secretary of Disgrace and the seeds of a global war have been sown by her efforts and those of Dictator Obama. We will harvest the bitter fruits of this in the next couple of years.

The talking heads on all of the Sunday shows are empty heads and part of our problem.
I am disappointed that Brit Hume would even say she was competent.

Juan Williams is a buffoon. There is no obnoxious behavior that the Left will not condone.

The Clinton foreign policy we got under this regime is what Obama wanted. The Middle East is in constant turmoil, exacerbated by Obama`s ideology. Israel is in ever more danger as a result.

This can end badly. Let`s hope it does not.

John Kerry is now reporting for duty. Aren`t we lucky.....

Juan Williams is a racist who will go to the mat for any black democrat.
Truth and logic have no place in his makeup.
Were it not for Fox participation in the Quota game, he would have found his trueb niche in life. On the back end of a trash packer.

Hillary Clinton has visited 113 countries. Wow!!! Super-Hillary has flown all over the world doing... nothing. All on our dime. Why, Secretary Clinton even accepted full responsibility for Benghazi - while attending a conference in Lima, Peru on - get this - women´s empowerment.

The worst stunt Hillary ever pulled? Presenting the Russian foreigh minister with a tacky little box affixed with a red button that read "Peregruzka" - in Roman letters no less. (Doesn´t anyone at Super-Hillary´s State know the Russian language and write in the Cyrillic alphabet?!? Anyone at all? Didn´t think so.) BTW the Russian word for reset is "Perezegruzka," but it doesn´t matter. The Russians would never use the metaphor of resetting an electronic device in the context of setting right a strained relationship. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was visibly irritated at Hillary´s stunt. Hillary asked: "Did I get it right?" Lavrov snarled his reply, in very undiplomatic language: "You got it wrong. The word is perezegruzka." He was extremely annoyed at Hillary´s shocking lack of professionalism and essential lack of seriousness.

Oh, and that´s exactly what America´s "competent" public officials need to do: present a tacky box affixed with a red button to the foreign minister of a country that has thousands of nuclear-tipped missiles pointed at us. Wow!! Super-Hillary!! You go girl!!

You go Hillary, as in just go away, and "love America" on your own time and your own dime. Hillary is a creep, a slick, polished, and experienced liar, and a phony.

#22 has it. The Hillary reset button stunt, which she now runs away from, was a sophomoric disaster, all the more so because in the diplomatic world, nuance, sophistication and high couture are paramount, and her college frat party gag was a monumental gaffe. Hillary is a tone deaf politician, the worse sort to occupy high diplomatic office.

PIAPS is trying to reawaken the early American political tradition of Secretary of State being the track to the White House. And in this case it may very well work.

Bill may actually move back home if he sees an opportunity to be co-president - as he & she so famously pronounced in 92. The memories of the 35-60 year old crowd of the prosperous 90s with BJ at the helm may be enough to propel her to the Big Chair. And the media will absolutely bury anything that would make her appear unable or unwilling to carry out her American responsibilities as POTUS.

Ronan Farrow’s team is trying to protect the precious new MSNBC host from probing questions about his dysfunctional family.

The Tea Party group Americans for Prosperity has now released its factual documentation for its misleading ad featuring Julie Boonstra, a Michigan woman stricken with Leukemia who suggests Obamacare forced her to take on a new plan that is now “unaffordable.” The ad has been widely pilloried ever since Glenn Kessler discovered that her premiums had come down, likely making her overall costs a wash or even cheaper. Gary Peters, the Dem candidate for Senate in Michigan, had written to TV stations insisting on documentation. The documentation provided by AFP doesn’t actually back up the ad’s key claim.

If you follow the Supreme Court, you probably know that Justice Clarence Thomas hardly ever asks questions during oral argument. If you follow the court closely, you may know that Thomas often gives speeches, and that he has publicly explained his reticence on the bench. In April 2012 the Associated Press recounted one such speech, at the University of Kentucky: Thomas suggested his loquacious colleagues should do more listening and less talking. "I don´t see where that advances anything," he said of the questions. "Maybe it´s the Southerner in me. Maybe it´s the introvert in me, I don´t know. I think that

Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

Mitt Romney on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans urging the Arizona governor to veto a bill that would allow business owners to cite their religious beliefs in refusing service to gay people. The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it. Brewer told CNN she would weigh both sides before deciding the right thing to

But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he
