There is not one person in America that can stand up to the Repukes....

....better than Hillary Clinton! 11 hours those bastards grilled her today and she stood up to them and showed the world what nasty, sick little fucks the Republican Party is made up of.

Hillary was cool, calm and professional. Her memory, her intelligence and her understanding of world affairs and foreign policy is second to none.

I am so proud of her!

Nothing that came out of her mouth did so without being cleared by them first.

She's a pro at not answering questions, even if they're stupid, idiotic ones.

Pointing out facts is not "taking a shot."

Ridiculous superlatives are much cheaper.

"There is not one person in America that can stand up to the Repukes better than Hillary Clinton!" Well the ones on the Bengazi circus anyway.


She did great of course. Suffering fools for 11 hours is not easy. But I don't think she's alone. I mean, they got nuttin' anyway. Everyone's known they're trending water for a while now. I'm sure she prepared with those lawyers we aren't supposed to notice.

She can't help it that she is smarter and has more professionalism in her little finger than any other person on that sham of a committee.....or for that matter any other candidate for President.

She has gone so far past proving herself as the best person for the job at this point that it's hysterical watching folks twist themselves into pretzels denying how good she is.

Nah..... another unwarranted superlative.

Many people have more professionalism in their little finger than any other person on that sham of a committee. It's been recognized for what it is since the very beginning.

But she still gets points for endurance. Hope she might be able to keep it up for 4 to 8 years.

We should now contrast that to Trump having to take the day off after a lousy THREE hour debate, where he had to talk for all of 20 minutes; and how he and most of the other GOP candidates are threatening to boycott the next debate if it's longer than 90 minutes.

I've gone from openly hostile to grudging respect to now starting to really like her.

I'll always think Sanders' positions are the correct ones but I'm not going to have much of a problem should Hillary get the nod as is expected. I may even work for her.

I am impressed.

12. Absolutely! Having watched her testify as a witness before Congress all the way back from

all the way back from the Clinton Administration, when she testified on "Hillarycare," I've found her to be extremely impressive when she's on the other side of that table. Then, when she was a Senator, she was equally impressive at asking the questions.

That's when she's at her best! I can't believe these beanheads didn't realize that, and were actually stupid enough to think they could drive her numbers down by putting her in the witness box of a show trial. As Bugs Bunny says...what a bunch of MAROONS.

41. IMO, her more emotional moment was

when Rep Cummings opened it up for her to describe what happened that evening, and explained what actually happened.

She got choked up by the end of it, very clear it hurt her deeply.

Then, the ensuring bullshit response from Gowdy, you could VERY CLEARLY see her disdain for him and the whole proceeding.

God lover her for spending 11 hours doing the dog and pony show, but in that moment you saw how much it burns her that these jackasses have used the death of these four people for this political witch hunt.

I was trying to behave, but you want to talk about endurance and strength? Not a grilling, but much tougher in some ways. And I'm sure he wold have held up well if it were a grilling.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/10/AR2010121005431.html

At 10:24 Friday morning, Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont took to the floor of the Senate to share a few thoughts about the tax-cut plan brokered by President Obama and Republican leaders.

Well after the sun had set and most of his colleagues had flown home, Sanders was still sharing - about taxes, bad trade deals and "the crooks on Wall Street," among many other topics. "China, China, CHINA!" he yelled at one point, stressing that the $14 trillion national debt was largely being financed by the Chinese government's decision to continue buying U.S. bonds. By early evening Sanders took to reading letters from constituents who had been hit hard by the Great Recession.

Sanders yielded at times to Democratic colleagues who wanted to speak briefly against the plan, but otherwise he held the floor until nearly 7 p.m., his thick Brooklyn-born accent filling the chamber.....
