WA Examiner

Republican senators will refuse to confirm Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., as Secretary of State until the nation’s current top diplomat, Hillary Clinton, testifies about her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack.

“The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi,” The Cable’s Josh Rogin notes.

Clinton backed out of testifying at a congressional hearing last week after fainting and suffering a concussion. She was the first cabinet-level official to acknowledge that terrorists played a role in the assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

    Maybe old Hilly will keep banging her head on things until she reaches the point of making Hank Johnson look like a Mensa candidate.

    It doesn’t matter who Obama selects for any post, they won’t be worth a damn. That’s because the Democrat party is made up of nothing but useless fucks from top to bottom.

    If she thinks her game of fainting and being concussed will help her get the nomination in 2016, she’s delusional. She just needs to get up in front of the Senate and tell the truth that 0bama was the cause of it all.

    But she’ll fall on her sword, get a nice pension, and ride Bill off into the sunset.

    Any takers on just how soon Hell will freeze over before Hillary testifies? Something is rotten in Denmark and its not just Lady Macbeth! What is Barry hiding and will we ever hear the truth. What’s that I hear, crickets, crickets and more damned crickets.

    The GOP slug senators will confirm one of their own, kerry as SOS.

    Patriotism, integrity, honesty and character are not criteria by which obama’s appointees are nominated or confirmed.

    After growing up in the cold war- I have a sneaking suspicion that we’re going to not see Hillary! for a long time- and the excuses are going to get even more stretched until even the MSM starts wondering what’s going on.
    Then we’ll find out that Bill thought she was a Tea Party guy looking for his Black book…….or something.

    Hillary will appear just before the Coronation looking 20 years younger, and I don’t mean Botox. She’s in hiding because it’s facelift time! Probably dentures too. Pray for complications.

    Okay, #1- Yeah Right! There is now no difference between a Republican “vow” or “promise” and one made by Democrats. It’s to the point now where I dread hearing the GOP say anything at all about their intention to do the right thing, because it’s like hearing a Democrat swear that something is true… You automatically know it’s a BFL!!!

    and #2… Have you all forgotten Fast and Furious? Does anybody really believe that Obama won’t just declare “Executive Priveledge” like he did to keep AssHolder from having to perjify himself? Just know that they’re guilty. Because if the motherfuckers were even remotely innocent they’d have spun that aspect into a tale of heroism and Patriotic Loyalty until we’d be sick of hearing about it by now! Just like when Obama ran into that burning building to save the little kitten on his way to personally take out Bin Laden and then rescue Baby Jessica from the Nazi well while removing one of his own kidneys with a Swiss Army Knife and transplanting it into the little blind Jewish boy… as he hand dug the Keystone Pipeline!

    She’ll fall on her sword before she testifies because she knows someone else’s sword will accidentally do her if she even considers testifying.
