    Could it be she just might want to relax and live a normal life and not become the Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley of politics where you have to meet everyone else’s expectation.

    Democrat vs Republican….
    I have to agree with the cartoon….
    What difference does it make? It is still an oligarchy made up of 2 parties who are greedy, power hungry, and firmly in the pockets of donors.
    Billions will be spent on political attack ads. Americans will be further divided, and money that could have been used to create jobs, new technologies, and reduce waste will be spent to get narrow minded people elected based on promises they have little intention of keeping.
    We must demand better. We must make leaders hear our voices and order them to do their jobs or get out of the way.

    I take it the Teabaggers will now begin taking that phrase out of context and throwing it around…kind of like “you didn’t build that?” The more you keep dumbing it down, the dumber the people become.

    reminds me of all the hoopla, fanfare, songs written about ‘you didn’t build that’ in the RNC convention last summer.
    All about a phrase taken out of context

    Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the full theme for the 4 day convention in 2016. It will work as well as the “You didn’t build that” theme did for 4 days in 2012.

    That’s a good observation, and i’d like to
    expand on that if I may.
    The problem with the “What difference does
    it make now” statement is, of course, that
    people who were concerned about all this
    suspected the administration didn’t think it
    made any difference THEN.
    There is a contradiction in Hillary Clinton’s
    remarks, but at the time they were delivered,
    it was all about the performance.And it caught
    the committee off guard. Frankly I thought
    that whole part of her testimony was rather
    glib. Allright -very glib.

    I don’t want ANYONE mentioning 2016 for at least three years, either party, but don’t want either Hillary or Biden to come forward. Of course I also don’t want to see, well maybe I do, the Republicans bring up Ryan, Rubio, JIndal, Cantor, or any of the other nut bags or “ethnics” they think might carry the ultra-right, and this nation, into true further disasters.

    As to anyone bringing up “Benghazi”, I suggest they take a long walk on a very short pier, while having anchors firmly tied around their necks. I’ve been in combat, and my son spent considerable time over 5 years in specops, in several countries less, and MORE dangerous than Libya, where American consulate people, and our covert military folks, and CIA, were doing dangerous jobs.

    Compared to Iraq, and the screwups in Afghanistan made by the Bush administrationS, father AND son, the “right” has absolutely NO issue to bring up with regard to this minor tragedy that affected only four deaths when more than 30 were actually rescued. Notice that NOBODY points out the staff we got OUT OF THERE? IT WAS a hairy situation, that even a company of Marines couldn’t have stopped, and we did NOT HAVE authority to use armed drones, C-130s ore other support, because the LIbyan “government” wisely told Stevens NOT to go to Benghazi, because they knew (as did he) it was hot and uncontrolled territory and they COULD NOT protect him there.

    This constant wave of comments and opinions by morons on the right, who have absolutely NO experience, or let their politics select and dictate what they believe, even if they KNOW it’s WRONG, has reached way beyond disgusting.

    In essence then making the ultra right wing or the Republican party as irrelevant as it was in the 2012 elections. Can you say President Hillery Clinton??

    At least like the Senate with two Senators for each state, you can not so easily gerrymander the Presidency of the entire USA!!

    That’s not what she meant and surely the rightie-tighties know it — but maybe not given their level of education and understanding of the world. Never attribute to malice what can be explained as ignorance.

    In actuality, whether or not the situation that killed out good diplomatic people was because of a spontaneous reaction to a perceived slight of the Muslim religion, or a coordinated plot on the part of Al Queda or other Islamic Extremists, makes absolutely no difference whatever to those that died at that time.

    As for the blame for the over all situation, the Republican Congress that cut the funds for the security of our embassies in all of such areas as the Middle East is far more culpable in the deaths of those people than is either the current Secretary of State (who asked for the funds in the first place) or the current administration.

    And these are the very same clowns supposedly trying to crucify Hillery for their own stupidity!!

    What is really needed in the long run, is an energy policy that gets this country off of the oil teat of the Middle East. So that we can tell those Islamic Extremists that they can Eat Their Damned Oil for all that we in the US care!

    In actuality, that should be a conservative position. And then we can pull all of our people from these 12th century regimes, including our diplomats, especially if it is deemed that they can not be properly protected by those that they have to deal with there!!!!!!

    Deering gets a failing grade in portraiture; he should stick to cartoons

    @Robert Landers

    I think we should wait and see if someone younger comes along. Younger than Hillary and Biden, that is.
