Ron Johnson Responds To Hillary Clinton’s ‘Theatrics’

Source: TPM



IGOR BOBIC 2:20 PM EST, WEDNESDAY JANUARY 23, 2013

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Wednesday said Hillary Clinton's testimony on the Benghazi, Libya attack amounted to "theatrics" intended to dodge Johnson's line of questioning.

“I wasn’t trying to get under her skin, I was just trying to get a relatively simple question answered, which she didn’t really want to answer," Johnson said on Wisconsin's WTMJ radio, according to Politico.

“I’m not trying to be obnoxious here, I’m just trying to get the answers I believe the American people deserve to hear," he added. "It’s been four months."

A visibly riled Clinton shot back at Johnson during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, after he questioned why State Department officials didn’t retrieve information from evacuated U.S. diplomatic staff on the eve of the attack.

9. These Republicans, who comprise a domestic right-wing extremist group imo, are

despicable in the extreme regarding this instance unless someone can show me that junior's Secretaries of State were put through similar grillings by Republicans following each of the instances wherein American embassy personnel were killed during junior's reign? Anyone have examples of such grillings?

No. No questions asked. In fact, forgotten it must remain.

knowledge and integrity see through their guile.

6. And I'd add interupting when she tried to respond.

Johnson has been the Clarence Thomas of the senate... he's said little and nothing of note.

They are giving him face time with a national public.

It's like my neighbor asking me if I'm doing laundry as I walk to the washing machine with a hamper full of clothes.
I'm like nope. Walking the dog.

3. "nothing could be further from the truth." There you have it: the Republican Party of lies & spin

Republicans vainly trying to make a mountain out of an irrelevant molehill. They are so desperate to 'seem' relevant.

5. Let's hear what this teabagger has to say about a bigger massacre closer to home

20 first graders were killed, along with 6 adults, in Connecticut last December.

How many questions has Johnson been asking about that? Is that crickets I hear chirping?

13. Yep, you nailed it.

I just saw in some RW sites comments about Hillary being "too emotional" to be president. Meanwhile, Boehner cries at the opening of an envelope.

14. I'm

 

listening to a Republican House member now comparing the U.S. Embassy to running a corporation as a CEO and and the ability to fire Government workers. You can't even fire someone from the military without going through a process. You can't even fire him because he is in Congress without going through a process. A lot of these Republicans don't know anything about Government. They are just elected to office and think things run like the private sector. Hillary Clinton has been in Government for how long and was the First Lady of the United States. She is also a lawyer. Most of the Republicans just come off as idiots to me that have no business in Congress. Some have never served in the military or know about danger either. They sound like Romney and his knowledge about ships.

Better get it re-attached---that's where 99% of your intellect and personality are located.

On a lighter note: Rand Paul's petulant little display made you look good by comparison, so the morning wasn't a total loss for you.....

32. No. The Republicans are playing 2016 politics and working to smear any possible candidate.

It is the new Only Four More Years plan of obstructing everyone who might run.

I don't know if she will actually run, but this has convinced me that the GOP thinks she might and it terrifies them.
