Things Only a Democrat Could Get Away With

On Friday, Hillary Rodham Clinton left the Harry S. Truman Building of the State Department after doing a grand media tour of every media outlet with a camera and a microphone. Meanwhile in Benghazi, where it was twenty degrees warmer, foreign organizations were fleeing the city while the killers who stayed behind still walked the streets.

In her joint appearance with Obama on 60 Minutes, Clinton claimed that her critics were not living in an “evidence-based world”. This is the same world of which she wrote in her goodbye letter to her State Department colleagues; “I am proud of what we have accomplished together.” Those accomplishments are hard to find among the debris of three failed wars, two failed containment policies in Iran and North Korea, and more attacks on American diplomatic facilities than ever before.

Hillary Clinton presided over the first murder of an American ambassador in thirty years. It was the closest thing to a notable moment in her time as Secretary of State, which concluded, in true Clinton style, with a cover-up, Senate hearings and more finger-wagging.

And yet, despite all that, the media threw her a farewell party in preparation for the 2016 election.  Four Americans died in Benghazi and in four years, Hillary Rodham Clinton expects to take the White House.

There is a certain symmetry to that. A year of political exile for every man she left unguarded and unsupported while lavishing millions on mosque renovations, embassy paintings and assorted trinkets. A year for every man whose blood was spilled on the warm streets of Benghazi. Four dead men and four years in which to prepare to do the same thing all over again as President of the United States.

It’s a big job and HRC finally has the experience for it.

The Benghazi attackers came out of Al Qaeda in Iraq; an organization that is showing more staying power than General Motors, and like the maker of the Aztek, it’s spending a lot of time and energy expanding internationally.

When Obama turned his back on Iraq, discarding the sacrifices of the Surge, like he did the lives of the four men murdered in Benghazi, the terror didn’t stop. Al Qaeda bombs have kept going off as Iraq melted down into a conflict between its Iranian-backed Shiite government, the Kurds and Sunni Islamists. And Al Qaeda found new wars. Like a persistent suitor, it followed BHO and HRC to Benghazi.

Obama’s surrender in Iraq paved the way for the regional resurgence of Al Qaeda. It put a spring in the step of every enemy from Iran to the Muslim Brotherhood to the grimmer sort of Salafis. It convinced them that they could take on the United States and win.

Like Hillary, Obama has never been held accountable for any of it. And Hillary’s very lack of accountability, her immunity from accountability makes her eminently qualified for the top spot in a Democratic Party where it’s more important to know how to shrug off accountability than it is to get things right.

Bill Clinton ushered in the post-accountability era, where evidence no longer mattered and the law was something that you could ignore if you felt like it. It is the thing that Obama, Clinton 2 and Biden all have in common. They are the poster-children of the post-accountability era where the synergy of media and party is so complete that it no longer matters what you do; only which side you’re on.

Jimmy Carter, the man under whose administration the last American ambassador was murdered, was also the last Democratic president to be held accountable for anything. His successors just smirk, wipe the blood off and do the rounds of fawning media interviewers.

Looking back on the last two decades, it almost seems as if the Clinton era never ended. Not only are both Clintons on television all the time, but so is Al Gore, still playing the guru in a suit, the deep thinker with a hand out to foreign governments. In the Clinton era, it was Communist China. Today it’s Islamist Qatar. At the time Gore said that he had done nothing wrong because there was no controlling legal authority. There still isn’t. Not where Democrats are concerned.

Al Gore, whose palm always itches for money from the enemies of the United States, nearly made it to the White House, where his influence peddling would have taken place on a whole other scale. Clinton, who did make it, deported a little boy to a Communist country at gunpoint and murdered more children at Waco, in the world’s bloodiest training exercise.

But again no one was held responsible. It’s a long way from Benghazi to Waco, but the Clintons retain their talent for walking over corpses to reach their ambition. And their critics, who notice the bodies, are accused of harboring personal vendettas and of not living in an “evidence-based world.”

The Democratic Party in the last two decades has absorbed Bill Clinton’s ability to avoid accountability. The ranks of its congressmen are full of liars, felons and lunatics. It is a party so devoid of accountability that the likes of Sheila Jackson Lee can sit on the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics without being able to tell apart the Moon and Mars, while Hank Johnson can warn that Guam may tip over if too many Marines land on it.

The Party of Jefferson has made the long sad trip to a party that views Massachusetts scandal machines like Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank as elder statesmen, instead of criminals who were never locked up, on account of their political influence. And it is full of these elder statesmen, men like Joe Biden, whose only gift is an inability to shut up and a media unwilling to condemn even the worst of their shenanigans.

The only remaining virtue in the Democratic Party is shamelessness. Those Democrats who have no shame prosper, those who do turn themselves in and serve their time.

After having trashed the housing market, the likes of Barack Obama and Andrew Cuomo step forward as reformers. After having murdered a woman, Ted Kennedy retired as a champion of women’s rights. After murdering children, Bill Clinton is touring in support of gun control to save the lives of children. And four years from now, Hillary Clinton will be touting her experience in Benghazi as a reason that she should be elected to the White House where she will be able to do it all over again.

  • Adhemarde

    Exactly correct. Bill Clinton may not have been the first President to lie, but he was the first for whom the press, and ultimately the American sheeple, said, "Who cares?" One would think that after being impeached and saved from removal from office by spineless closet-liberal Republicans, that he would have slunk off to obscurity in some banana republic that would appreciate him. But no, like Freddie Kruger, he came back, resurrected as a democrat elder statesman. If that is the best the democrat party can do, and it plainly is when you look at the rest of the field, and when you read articles in Pravda that decry the daily scandals of the left in this country, you wonder who "won" the Cold War.

  • NHTom

    What's there to be ashamed of? It's not their fault. It's George Bush's fault – The eternal scapegoat.

  • Leslie Satenstein

    The Demonization of the Democrats is not going to win any points. GWB2 ignored warnings about the 9/11 attack. What have you to write about that. And how many soldiers killed and who killed, occurred in IRAQ.

    Where is democracy in countries that follow Sharia law? Why did the republicans put so many warriors into foreign countries, and make deals with dictators, or create dictators.

    This occurred because of Republicans and the need to exploit their resources. Those same countries did not see the wealth trickle down to the population.

    So, I think the actions of the Repubicans was reprehensible and will remain so in my mind to the day I die.

    • Capt_Z1

      Well hurry ut and die, tired of reading your dribble.

    • John Glueck

      Leslie… their are no easy answers, but dictators are FAR more to be desired than Islamists or their fellow travelers. Their people do live in varying degrees of freedom, its true. But unless they forsake the evil that is TRUE Islam, their lot will never change. Wicked men like Morsi, Ahmadinejad, Khameini, Libya's leaders, Karzai… they are all the same in the end and Syria, Jordan and the others are being taken over in stages by totalitarian Islamists who govern by "religious" opinions. They partner with Democrats like we have now. Tragic.

    • Ziggy Zoggy

      Leslie, why don't you just write "Bush lied, people died" and "no blood for oil?" Your screed is juvenile in the extreme. The canard that Bush ignored specific warnings about 911 is moronic, the notion that Republicans sent SOLDIERS (there is no such thing as a "warrior") to islamic countries to create dictators intentionally or otherwise is deranged, and the canard of imperialist Republicans exploiting the resources of innocent islamopithecines is idiotic beyond belief.

      You typify the shameless Democrat perfidy noted in this article. You are eager to excuse any crime committed by Democrats and point your finger at Republicans because political affiliation obviously trumps morality with you. Again, you typify the degeneracy of the Democrat party and its mindless advocates. Take that with you to your grave.

      • Mary Sue

        it's worse than that, Leslie is a Low Information Canadian. Which pretty much explains everything. I know idiots like him (two of whom passed away in the past couple years). They were teachers by profession and chances are high so was Leslie.

        • Ziggy Zoggy

          Leslie is a L.I.C? "Low Information Canadian" is code for "Loser In Canada" right? I used to be a teacher So I feel grubby just by career association.

          • Mary Sue

            Well that's because a lot of teachers are NDP in Canada (and I guess a lot are Democrat in USA but it depends; a teacher is FAR more likely to be NDP (which is Democrat on steroids basically) if they're in Canada than just about anything else. Unless they're Quebecois, then there's a huge chance they are separatist Bloc supporters.

    • patron

      Letting Democratic Senators rape children, and our Former ACORN Lawyer President amass over $100 million in personal wealth while taking $20 million taxpayer funded Christmas vacations and running an around the clock Whitehouse movie theater has proven so successful in the last four years.

      You act like the Republicans have avoided accountability just like the Democrats. Obama is only in office due solely to the attacks on George Bush and the Republicans abandoning any defense. Any attempt to defend him will bring back the list of soldiers killed in action which magically disappeared under Obama.

      The Democratic party have used George Bush to excuse all of their criminality, including Barney Frank being sodomized by bankers he should be regulating and Chris Dodd pimping out Countrywide loans.

      Hillary Clinton stood on the Senate floor waving a copy of the New York Times in her fat hoof with the headline "What Bush Knew" and the Twin Towers blowing up.

      Keep voting for Harry Reid, and watch him screw over taxpayers so he and his criminal sons can drive around DC in a Lamborghini until the day you die.

    • Mary Sue

      Oh, so you're a typical low-information Canadian. Tell me, do you vote NDP or Bloc? Stop listening to CNN and the Commie Broadcasting Corporation. Tune into Sun News instead.

      • Leslie Satenstein

        Hi Mary Sue
        I am glad to see that you are only able to insult someone with a different opinion. Why not write a rebuttal countering my comments with some point by point examples of where I was wrong.

    • Mary Sue

      Also STOP believing the GARBAGE from whatever union you belonged to during your working years in their stupid little flyers. It's lies and distortions.

    • Drakken

      If that was the case Leslie, why didn't Bush just install Saddams Generals and leave instead ? But hey as long as the left/progressives put islamomaniacs in charge everything is all good. Amazing the words you liberal/progressives mutter to the utter amazment of anyone with two brain cells to rub together.

      • Leslie Satenstein

        Drakken When Saddam pays his generals a million a year, or more, and the generals have a very very good life, why would they change. At that level, no general could trust another, so, it was best to just follow the leader.

        Saddam was cruel. Was he as cruel as the current Syrian leader? Just ask how many American lives were lost in the Arabian Peninsula. Want to win a war, provide food, cellphone systems, internet, etc. and not soldiers who shoot first and apologize later. The Taliban are fighting for their values, and are ready to die for them. Will they promote education? I think not.

        So, Because of Irac and Afghanistan you are actually in a country where the per-capital debt is greater than that of Greece's. The USA is so in debt from the wars, that the yearly tax revenue does not cover the interest payments on the debt. Obama had to borrow more from the treasury to pay for essentials, such as public security, etc.
        Why is that necessary? Answer the question, with some facts.

If she wants to get to the bottom of what happened to prevent future attacks, this it does make a difference. Still the media applauded her for her self contradictory rant. Huh?

  • Johnconrad

    We have to face facts. There's a reason why the Republicans cannot figure out how to beat them.

    That's the real problem.

    • Ziggy Zoggy

      the 24/7 subversive media are the real problem. No matter how incompetent or stupid they seem-and they are obscenely incompetent and insanely stupid-their 24/7 indoctrination schedule is so relentless it warps even rational minds to the "dark side."

      The Republicans are witless, yeah, but the only reason the mindlessly corrupt and power mad Dhimmiecrats win so many elections is because the Obamedia are in perpetual campaign mode for them
      .
      Hard to fight that.

      • fiddler

        And no greater example than Chris Matthews. He needs to be roundly reputiated in public. And instead of trying to defend his "journalistic prowess", he will interrupt and utter things like:

        "You're a racist" or
        "Who pays your salary, HUH!"

    The Democrat motto: DDD for Dissemble. Distort, and Distract. Dems have perfected the art of the instant whopper. With the ability to fabricate lies in an instant, Dems are always one whopper ahead of the truth-seekers. Just as soon as you think you have one of them cornered, they invent a tangled web of interconnecting whoppers, and then they leave while everyone is sorting out what they said. It is believed that "Slick Willy" is behind this, conducting Whoppers-on-the-Run grad classes in in some underground warehouse.

Then she prgressed to "What difference does it make?" The dems are liars and Hillary is their spokesman. Continuing in the fine tradition of being a dirt bag.

  • DrBukk

    The Benghazi hearings presented a perfect opportunity for Republicans to crush her. It was squandered and a total disgrace. She said she never mentioned the video. Where was the follow-up question about the ad they ran in Pakistan, or how she promised the parents of one victim that they would get that videographer? How could she say the videos from drones were not available in real time when that was the earlier testimony? How can she blame underlings for not bringing her dispatches from Libya and they not follow up with finding out who? Why did they let "What difference…" statement stand instead of fully condemning her? How did they neglect to interview any of the 30 people who escaped? How could she and the president not be indicted for trashing the 1st Amendment in service to Islam? He, 6 times in front of the UN!

    Why were Republicans completely uninformed and uncoordinated? They would ask a hard question and then combine it with a softball. She would use her softball questions for the allotted 5 minutes. Republicans must be co-conspirators. There is no other explanation. She should have and could have been crucified.

    • fiddler

      Answer: Fear of the Media.

      They have something the media can squeeze and that is their CAREERS. This is why new people who get elected need to RE-consider their term(s) in office as SERVICE to the people, not as a chance for the perpetual, tax-payer funded gravy train.

      Chris Matthews, Georgie Stephanopolous, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Sam Donaldson, Charlie Gibson, etc, etc, etc. — all messers for the "CORRECT" point of view.

      Republicans need to almost become RECKLESS in their ridicule of the left and their calling out of the BLATANT bias of the aforementioned. To blazes with career and the potential golden parachute! Time to serve the people and save whatever is left for our kids!

    It is disgusting, but true. Demonocrats can get away with just about anything, including blaming George W for everything that has happened on BO's shift. What is almost as disgusting is the lack of concern that a majority of the American population have toward the abuses that our current president has been exercising with regards to our rights as set forth in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
    They either don't know, or don't care, and both instruments are there to protect them. Shame, shame, shame on them. Are they that stupid?

    I have come to the conclusion that a Democrat only believes what an another Democrat. And it is always what that Democrat says about the same subject the last time he spoke about that subject. Example: After 9/11, Both Clintons agreed that Iraq had Chemical Weapons and WMDS because US Security units had reported to Clinton that Iraq had them. But, after the elections of 2004, the Democrats and the Liberal Media decided that they had to discredit Bush if they where going to have a chance to win in 2008. So, they began to say that Bush influenced the Security agencies to lie about Iraq having WMDS. This was done so that Bush could have his war. The Clintons agreed. All Democrat agreed. The Liberal Media soaked the American public with these lies until the American public believed that Bush was an evil man. The same thing will happen about the Libyan Consulate, 3 years from now, Hillary will be the Hero. The
    Reason, "Democrats Never Lie" except when they are in their graves.

    • JacksonPearson

  • PAthena

    The Democratic Party, alas, has been taken over by the Tom Hayden crowd. Tom Hayden and his goon squads disrupted the Democratic Party convention in Chicago in 1968, and Hubert Humphrey, the presidential candidate, decided to "bring them into the system." He appointed George McGovern to rewrite the rules for the Democratic Party, and – lo and behold – Tom Hayden and his crowd "came into the system" and destroyed the Democratic Party. It is no longer the party of FDR and Harry Truman.
