It’s Hillary’s Turn to Cry

“For me, this is not just a matter of policy. It’s personal,” said a verklempt  Hillary Clinton choking back the tears at Wednesday’s Benghazi hearing. “I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews. I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children.”

Hillary may well have been sincere, but with the Clintons you never know. A classic maudlin moment during Bill Clinton’s presidency occurred immediately after a 1996 memorial service for Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. Brown, a sworn enemy of the Clintons in his final days, died in what the U.S. Air Force called an “inexplicable” plane crash in Croatia.

As Clinton and the Reverend Tony Campolo were walking back to the White House from the service, they were discussing, as Campolo later told me, the typically joyous black funerals they had attended in the past, and the conversation turned mirthful.

As Clinton leaned back to laugh, he suddenly locked on to an ABC News camera and reflexively downshifted to a funereal gear, dropping his head in seeming sadness and wiping an imagined tear from his eye. Campolo attributed the mood switch to a shift in conversation, claiming he confronted the president with the issue of the partial birth abortion bill recently passed by Congress. As I pointed out to Campolo, however, he kept on talking and laughing. Rush Limbaugh’s commentary on this video is a hoot.

    Rush is the best!

    He does great imitations, including an outstanding Bubba, and when he does little kids, I just lose it.

    Back in 2001, I said that we’d never be rid of the Hildebeast and her horndog husband. I fear the same with the Obama gang, as well.

    Bill and Hillary “caught” on camera dancing on the beach, like a loving couple…Bill “caught” on camera reverently arranging pebbles into a cross. What crap.

    Everybody marvels at what masterful politicians elite Dems are, but the reality is that they are third-rate hacks propped up by a wall of deceit, intimidation and journo fellow-travelers

    I guarantee Mrs. Clitoff was coached while she was “hospitalized” for a clot. She emerged looking like Nurse Ratched.

    Yes, that’s how you spell her name, according to Bill.

    You’ll never see that making headlines on the Goebbel news networks.

    MAJMike, they are all like herpes. Our children will still go through the motions of “electing” them, but our grandchildren will just have to accept whomever is appointed.

    Michelle Obama will still have to be elected Senator, but Malia will be appointed Premier of North America Region 3 in the Global Union.

    So: if a tree falls in the woods, etc.

    Where is the video of the weeping warthog?

    Could this be a Johnnie Cochran moment?

    The Harpy wailed. The videographer failed.

    I absolutely can’t stand John Stewart but before I realized how much i disliked him, he did say of Hil and Bill dancing on the beach that it looked like two manatees were nipping at her legs.

    Click if you dare, not for the faint of heart.

    Hillary is a sociopath. She cares for nothing other than whatever or whomever can further her interests. I don’t believe for a second that she empathesized with the families of the victims in Bengahzi. Ice runs through her veins, and she, along with here reputed husband, are incapable of normal human emotion.
