RNC Chairman Reince Priebus had a full on meltdown as he hysterically rambled on Fox News Sunday that Benghazi disqualifies Hillary Clinton from running for president.
You know, Hillary has been playing politics with this issue from the very beginning, and now she’s launching a political defense, an organized political defense. I mean how did this chapter get leaked to the newspaper? It got leaked because obviously their people are trying to prempt or stop any more criticism that she’s been receiving on Benghazi. But she from the beginning the Secretary of State should have known that this was al-Qaeda the entire now, and now she’s claiming somehow that this is a political attack.
She played a part in the White House’s cover-up of what this is all about in Benghazi. It was a terrorist attack. Our heroes and diplomats have died and were murdered, and she continues to play politics. Hillary Clinton is politics 24/7, and this is no different. This is not going to end. We are continue to pursue this, and she needs to answer the tough questions.
Yet she continues to perpetrate this political answer. Number one to make sure Barack Obama got himself reelected, but number two to save her own hide by perpetrating this lie. Here’s another question. Why was it that Hillary Clinton was not the person on television that Sunday morning? How was it that Susan Rice was chosen? In December of 2012, Susan Rice said the reason Hillary Clinton didn’t show up on television that morning was that she had a grueling week, and was tired. Now, one of two things are true.
Either Susan Rice was telling the truth, and Hillary Clinton was tired and she failed to report for duty and, therefor, I don’t know she can President Of The United States, or second, Susan Rice is lying, and in fact, Hillary wasn’t tired and that’s not the reason she didn’t report for duty. The fact is Hillary Clinton has to answer these questions, number one, and number two, if she’s even thinking about running for president, I think she has been disqualified because of her actions here.
This is an escalation of the desperation that was first seen coming from Priebus a couple of Sundays ago on Meet The Press, when he admitted that the Republican plan is to scare Hillary Clinton out of running for president. The chairman of the RNC sounded hysterical and insane during this interview.
Apparently, the Benghazi scandal is now about Hillary Clinton not appearing on the Sunday morning shows after the attack. Priebus repeatedly used the phrase failure to report for duty, which is interesting because most of us had no idea that appearances on the Sunday morning shows were a part of the legal and formal duties of the Secretary of State.
At least Priebus finally admitted that this Benghazi nonsense is all about implicating Hillary Clinton in some Republican imagined White House cover-up. Priebus also made it clear that Republicans are going to continue to flog this dead horse to nowhere through the 2016 election.
A sure sign that there is no scandal is that Republicans keep changing what the Benghazi scandal is about. If Republicans think that some Fox News generated conspiracies are going to stop Hillary Clinton, they are in for a long, long, long 2016.
Hillary is causing a full Republican meltdown, and she isn’t even a candidate yet.
