Myself I was hoping Paul could at least get Clinton to bawl a lil more. Or at least make her go dizzy and think she was going to fall and pass out again.
Yes, the sharks of the Republican party sure sensed blood in the water... but when they swam to its source, all they found was an over-fed misquito (http://images.nationalgeographic.com...34_600x450.jpg)
The "tell" in all this... why it was nothing but political grandstanding... there were no questions about what actually happened and how it could be improved... the questions were all about what was released in the days after the event. Really, who cares? Why should anyone care about near term news flow? This whole issue, as its being pursued, is beyond silly.
.... When will the Cons wake up and realize no one really cares about Benghazi? It is right up there in great American scandals like Fast and Furious, Whitewater and the death of Vince Foster? .... 45 fools without a clue of what is important.

When will the Libs and Progressives learn that with an active ongoing investigation. That most could not ask the questions they wanted. Knowing Clinton would sit there and cite that FBI investigation which has produced nothing. Then really turning the hearing into nothing more than a sit and spin talk.
When will the left understand the only way this issue dies is.....if those on the Right give up. Listening to all the whining and crying by the Left as to what they think is in Important and not will not make this issue go away. Course thinking that Hillary says she takes full responsibility and that there should be no consequences.....kinda shows the lefts propensity to ignore laws and protocols when their Heroes really commit major screw ups.
Course they already had the Recommendations of the ARB and were implementing as Clinton noted. Although once again those on the left cannot see that writing on the wall. That both Reports validate that the State Dept was completely incompetent. As in they couldn't even hit the wall of a Barn even when they have things Right.
The Best part was Clinton's own people who validating that both Clinton and Obama didn't have a clue as to how to proceed. Which resulted in the Death of a US Ambassador. While they watched it play out in real time for 7hrs. As well as Obama dropping the ball on the Anniversary of 911. Due to him slacking the Nations Security all to try and cover his failing Foreign Policy and his Narrative over AQ.
It will go away just as quickly and easily... at least that bug has legs. This issue does not.
Save your contrived outrage for something that mainstream America cares about. This ain't it.
In the justice system, the investigation is conducted as soon as possible, so that all of the information and details are fresh, and also so that the party being investigated doesn't have sufficient time to "get their story straight" instead of HAVING to rely upon the truth.
This "investigative hearing" was conducted more than four months later. All to find out what Hillary was up to four months ago. It doesn't take four months to trace an error chain, nor to even launch a full-scale investigation (which I don't think was done).

We know the problem, and we know the solution. One has to wonder why the smokescreen about daytime TV BS. About the only reason i can think of is that no one really gives a damn about doing the obvious and sending more troops and resources to our foreign consulates to make them harder to overrun. This is all just part of the blame game because reps never really gave a damn about the people who die fighting for america. Get off your butt and go tell your republican reps to stop playing games with the outgoing hillary and get the damn job done. After you get the support there you can piss and moan about hillary all you want, but if all you do is piss and moan about hillary the job will never get done, and you are just getting angry over something you don't even want to fix.
The only thing that is Clear.....is that Obama and Clinton didn't see the Writing on the Wall. Unfortunately it happen twice to the Consulate in Benghazi. Twice the Shame!
Looks like the Democrats and those of the left can piss and moan about that! I know it is kinda hard to take when one is going into History with that Black Mark on their face. No getting round watching a battle take place for 7hrs and do absolutely.....Nothing!
Can't get round that Team Obama watched from the very beginning until that very end.
