They've Crossed The Line: GOP Senator: Hillary Clinton Faked It

GOP Senator: Hillary Clinton Faked Emotional Outburst At Benghazi Hearing
By Aviva Shen on Jan 23, 2013 at 4:22 pm

........................

After the hearing, Johnson complained to Buzzfeed that Clinton had planned to become emotional as a way to avoid answering questions:

I’m not sure she had rehearsed for that type of question. I think she just decided before she was going to describe emotionally the four dead Americans, the heroes, and use that as her trump card to get out of the questions. It was a good way of getting out of really having to respond to me.

Johnson also gave an interview on Milwaukee radio station WTMJ after the hearing, blasting Clinton’s “theatrics.” He speculated that “she didn’t want to answer questions so she makes a big show of it.”

Many Republicans, including former UN envoy John Bolton, accused Clinton of faking a concussion last month to avoid testifying about Benghazi. Clinton was hospitalized for several days after doctors discovered a blood clot induced by her concussion. A full 40 percent of Republicans believed Clinton’s illness was fabricated.

7. You know it...

The "self-made" business man? It's his father-in-law's business! Johnson pulled himself up by his wife's bra straps.

He's a dead man walking. He's up for re-election during the 2016 cycle when we'll have good turnout. For more years of this doorknob and then he'll be a political trivia question.

6. Hillary Clinton Faked It

Well sure....She faked a blood clot in her brain,and the resulting hospitalization...Surely she also faked outrage and annoyance at having to answer stupid questions from a simpleton......

The English language really needs words that more strongly convey "despicable" and "reprehensible",to describe these pukes....

I'm looking for a word,in the vein of one used by neanderthals to describe a woman they consider to be uppity... It doesn't rhyme with rich,although it does just have 4 letters....One I wouldn't dare repeat here and which provokes revulsion,when I hear it....

As I say......No such word exists....

12. And This Shitstain Rehearsed That Answer...

...cause he got his head handed to him this morning by the Secretary of State! Damn right she was emotional...she cared about those who were killed and must detest their deaths being used for political theater. In bubbleworld there's nothing Mrs. Clinton could say that would give satisfactory answers to talking points and distortions. The questions from most of these asshats were based on what they heard on hate radio or some stink tank provided to them. This is just red meat for a demoralized base...thinking somehow that they're showing Mrs. Clinton whose the boss. In reality she's showing those watching, once again, how disgusting and embarassing today's rushpublican party has become...

18. In fairness to the rethugs, I'm sure they're used to their women faking it

So they probably just assume that all women are faking it...when that's the only reality you know, it's hard to think that anything could be real.
