Thank God for Hillary Clinton.

This morning when I awoke to this awful news out of Bengazi, all I could think of was how grateful I was that we had such a strong woman as our presence across the world. And I am and will be eternally grateful that we have Obama calling the shots in the White House.

The Republicans look like they are auditioning for Amateurs Hour. It would be funny if it weren't so scary...

1. Imagine Secretary of State John Bolton's reaction to these events

If that doesn't have you shouting "Four More Years" from the rooftops, I don't know what would.

And Clowndileeza was the SOS.

18. I'm hoping this country is smart enough to keep Republicans out

at least until that old bastard goes to his eternal reward.

He seems to want WWIII and won't stop until he gets it.

4. It is absolutely ridiculous even to speak of Bolton and Clinton in the same

breath! Bolton was one of the biggest a-holes in the Bush Administration...and that's saying a lot cuz there were so many...

8. Bolton is STILL an a-hole - in spades.

He's also one of Mitt Romney's top foreign policy advisors.

That's all one needs to know.

15. Bolton is on Romneys campaign advisory team

There's been some gossip that he might be a potential Secretary of State choice in a Romney administration, but the general opinion seems to be that he's too bellicose and too controversial not to spark a Senate fight.

6. and conversely, I feel calm and centered because I know we have so much of

world's back on our foreign policy.

It all makes me feel a bit better. At least calmer...

5. You are so right

Rmoney should never have opened his mouth.

He is a danger to our country ~ especially during the time of this sensitive issue.

25. Yesterday was a quintessential Hillary moment. It encapsulated who she is and why we are so lucky to

have her as our Secretary of State. I was also very proud of President Obama for his words and leadership.

On the other hand, I have never been more disappointed in Governor Romney. Granted, I never expected much from him to begin with, but I thought his comments/attacks were beyond out of line and inappropriate.

Ambassador Stevens sounds like he led a life to be proud of. It was heartening to see the love and respect that so many of the Libyan people felt for him.

How have you been Bea? It's been awhile!

26. Hey, how are you?

I was out of the country when I heard the news about the attack on the ambassador and the other 4 people. Very sad news.

It's nice "seeing" you. I don't post much, I'm disgusted with both parties. I don't think that either one gives a damn about the needy. They talk a good game, but that's about it. Therefore, I'm trying to focus on other things.

Hugs!!!

(Even better than Obama's, imo.)

Romney is a mess. Not ready from prime time.

23. This seems to be missing the point completely.

Something that had nothing to do with anything got thanked and given credit, when those actually responsible get none.

19. Every day I am grateful that sensible, well-intentioned people are

in charge. Look at the assclowns of the GOP, and imagine how we'd lurch from one disaster to the next if they were leading us.
