Clinton gave “direct instructions” re: Benghazi. My heart is sinking.

I went to the lady-parts doctor today. (No, this one wasn’t written by Col. West) While waiting for my appointment, I picked up the most recent copy of People Magazine. The cover story was Hillary Clinton with a headline “We need to break that highest, hardest glass ceiling.”

I leafed through about two pages before the physician’s assistant called me in. While I replaced the magazine in the rack, she said breathlessly, “I think she’s going to be interviewed by Diane Sawyer tomorrow!” It took me a minute to figure out what she was referring to, and then I realized it was Hillary.

My heart sank.

This woman already had heroine worship. In her mind, she had already cast her vote for a Clinton presidency. Nothing was going to change her excited anticipation to vote for the first woman president.

Not even a story like this one.

As our fellow Liberty Alliance partner, Minuteman News reported, Clinton says she gave “very direct instructions” to security experts during the Benghazi attack in an effort to secure the U.S. mission. You can read the full story here.

Host Diane Sawyer asked Clinton if there was anything she could have “personally” done to protect the Americans in Benghazi.

“What I did was give very direct instructions” to “the people who have the expertise and experience in security,” Clinton said. “That is personal.”

What does that mean? It’s “personal.”

Yes, it was very personal for the four Americans who died. It was very personal for Ty Woods and Glen Doherty who willingly rushed into danger, trusting that help was on the way. It will always be very personal for the families they left behind in the wake of their tragic deaths.

But what difference, at this point, does it make?

Because it’s personal.

Clinton declined to say whether she is willing to testify on Benghazi before the new House select committee investigating the attack. “That’s going to be up to the people running the hearing,” she said. “We’ll see what they decide to do, how they conduct themselves.”

Oh, to see if they “get too personal?” Then maybe she won’t want to? How about if she’s subpoenaed?

Here’s the thing, a great majority of black people were thrilled to vote for the first black president. But black people represent only about 13-14 percent of the population. Women represent just over 50 percent.

There will be an avalanche of media coverage of Hillary Clinton in every single woman’s magazine and every soft news program about her hair, her outfits, her role as grandmother and long-suffering wife, her historical importance, her fashion evolution, her ability to succeed in a man’s world…and on and on.

But as tough as nails as she’s supposed to be, hard questions won’t be asked, because that would be sexist. It’s personal.

It’s a terrible, dangerous double-standard. I’m not surprised Clinton gave “direct instructions” – I’m just sad she was the one giving them, and I pray she will not be the one giving them as Commander-in-Chief in January of 2017.

if she is we’re screwed even more than we are now – if that’s even possible

As a whole, women are smarter than to vote for a woman because she’s a woman. They can look at things objectively. Let me clarify that. Conservative leaning women can. Liberals will do whatever the voice in their heads tell them to do. I really think the country has had enough of the Bush & Clinton families. Time to move on.

No argument, there. I was only speaking about women. The no/low comprise too large a percentage of the population. It’s going to be a fight to get our country back.

Hillary Clinton is the Kim Kardashian of politics. She’s famous because she’s famous. She’s the smartest, most accomplished woman because people say she is.

I fear that the “it is time we had a ________ president” crowd who got this disaster we have now elected will decide “it is time we have a female president” and the ignorant people will elect this disgusting pos.

Here you go nothing person… http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/06/opinion/kohn-michelle-obama-run/ I said the “rumor” is she might run for something… You should take your own advice and just shut up… and you are welcome…

And I do not like Michelle because she is a hypocrite. She attacks kids lunch programs but lives the life eating and drinking on our dollar. Vacationing on our dollar and well is a racist elitist… is that good enough for you?

Have a good day 🙂

wow! you are as dumb as I thougth you were….you’re giving me a reference to a website titled CNN OPINION keyword “OPINION” come on. MIchelle has no power to change anything, so it doesn’t matter what she thinks. And that was good enough for me because if you’re going to say something about some one you should have common sense enough to explain why.

No sweetheart… the thing is, you ignorant fool, is i said RUMOR… you do understand what that means right? I also stated that I hope it doesn’t become REAL… you understand that word too I hope… So get your head out of your ass and think for a moment about what I first wrote… it was a rumor.. .got it… have a good day…

Are you that inept? I said RUMOR, omg you are the dense one… Please check the ground it seems you lost something, like your common sense. All I said to start with you poor little dense child, is that I hope we don’t have anymore Obamas either… and I hope the RUMOR doesn’t become real… do you understand, do you need me to dumb it down for you to understand?

So if you guys are the only people (which you are) referencing CNN OPINION (which you praise) that believes that. My friend that’s not a real Rumor.

Good try, but still shows what an idiot you are. The rumor was many people hoping Michelle would run for Senate, but you couldnt understand that.

You are a total failure……You obviously have poor reading comprehension skills. If you did, you would have read my previous reply to your dumb comments. Stop trying to be someone who you are not.

The same women who voted for obama will vote for hillary. Let’s hope the rest of us have an inspiring candidate to vote for who motivates millions to come out and vote instead of staying at home like they did in the last Presidential election.

I can understand staying home. I think a lot of us are tired of voting for candidates we don’t like and don’t trust to do the right thing for the country, from both parties. We haven’t had a chance to vote FOR someone in a very long time; we are always voting against the other guy.

For one thing, we got a look at the school and other records of the president before the current president. What did we see for the current president? Not diddly squat. But we DO see now what a “high performer” he is. Yes, your messiah is truly perfect in every way. I’m sure these people can confirm that for us: Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods, Glen A. Doherty

I never said I was an Obama supporter. I’m only a supporter of the truth which a lot of people on this website don’t understand. Obama has screwed up no more than Bush has. This is a democracy..you guys act like he can just put laws and bills into action without having to pass through his protocols. That’s my problem with everyone. It’s politics Mr. DeadMessenger, Democrats vs Republicans, Right Wing/Left Wing. They clash, so don’t just think it’s a one man show because last time i checked there were two parties in the congress.

I like Ben Carson but the last time I read a statement from him re: the 2nd Amendment, he said he supports it but he adds a condition or exception about particular guns and that is not acceptable.
Any candidate needs to support the 2nd Amendment 100%, as is, or I won’t even consider voting for them..

I am reading his book at the moment. There is a chapter about respectful disagreement. In it he lays out the two sides of the gun control argument. He talks about how the starting point of the argument should be what we agree on, in his opinion keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of unstable individuals. However, whatever the solutions they should not intentionally affect either side in a negative way. He’s not as tough as I am on the issue, but I don’t think that is an unreasonable approach. He never mentioned anything about limiting particular guns, although… Read more »

And that will be the reason we end up with another Democrat in office. A non vote for a Republican is a vote for a Democrat. If I agree with someone on most things, I’ll vote for him. If 2 people agree on every single thing, then one of you is unnecessary. As far as Ben Carson goes, he says it’s not something he’s interested in so it’s a moot point.

Sounds like you didnt read the article very well, as you didn’t take notice in the first paragraph it states again that it wasn’t him who wrote it…. Geez Earl, so quick to jump the gun again it seems… no wonder you fail at trying to discredit him… you don’t know jack crap…

Sexism and racism are like flatulence. He who smelt it, dealt it. SE’s question was honest and relevant. Not everyone is a PC slave.

NO NAME

well I gave him an honest answer, then I gave him my honest opinion because I believe the only people who would asked that question would be sexist and racist plus you sort of agreed with me in stating “He who smelt it, dealt it”. Mr. Xposure smelt it so I’m a firm believer that he dealt it.

Jimbolero
Guest

In 2008 Obama got 95% of the black vote and 93% in 2012. I also believe a fair amount of that was due to pigment. That and the fact that the mainstream media is now the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party and have been enormously successful at demonizing the Republican Party.

Very Very true….but I wonder what were Mr. Xposure and your reasons for not voting for him? That my friend, is what I’m talking about. Not judging or anything. I just based my opinion on his comment.

Jimbolero
Guest

Obama is a straight up Marxist, or “progressive” as they call themselves so as not to alarm anyone. I want to live in a Constitutional Republic, not a Socialist Democracy. I will always vote against any progressive, no matter what their paint job or gender is.

Well, I can respect that.

Willy Thompson

I dont understand the thinking of some people.Wehave a man in office how that has never had any experience in government and he has screwed up just about everything. How we are talking about a woman that is also not qualified as a possible president. I just love America and dont understand what is going on

NO NAME
Guest

correction: he has had experience in the government, he just hasn’t had any experience in the military. 2nd no one will never have experience being president unless they have already served one term. lol omg, if you’re gonna comment, try to make sense of what you’re trying to say

Southern Xposure
Guest

please elaborate on the government experience you claim for this president

NO NAME
Guest

He was a state senator for illinois from 1997 till 2004 so I think that counts

Donna Sloss
Guest

He was a junior senator. Also no name you can have other government experience let’s say maybe be a governor of a state……was he ever that, NO….HE WAS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER PERIOD…

NO NAME
Guest

And you are correct. However, Mr. Thompson said he had no government experience. And as awful and petty as junior senator sounds, it’s still part of the government. Just answering his question. The guy above (Allen West) could be put in the same category with his limited amount of time involved in the government. Military experience is GREAT, but it can’t make up for experience in the government. Two different playgrounds.

Rena
Guest
I think you don’t give us enough credit, Michelle Hickford. We women are not blind as to what Hillery is trying to do. Not to mention, although women make up over 50% of the population here, not all are that blind. I just hope people learned from the last time of “choosing someone because we haven’t had one in office yet”. We need to go on character and experience. And hopefully both parties will stop with the immature mudslinging and talk about the real issues we face as a nation.. My kids act more mature than most politicians these days..… Read more »

Benghazi is the result you can expect from Hillary’s “direct instructions”. ( or indirect instructions or orders or commands or suggestions) Hillary is a troop killer, not a troop leader…

I think our Commander and Chief should have active duty military experience and should also have the experience of leading soldiers into combat. That man would be Allen West. He would annihilate Hillary in every debate.

But ahh, there is a bit of hope! Immediately hearing a woman claim out loud that she would vote for hillary so that the country could have our first woman president, I heard another woman rush over and nearly choke her.
