COMMENTARY | Clinton tops Obama in poll data, so does that mean Benghazi did not really matter that much to a majority of Americans?
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Hillary Clinton is more popular than President Obama. The former secretary of state received a 60 percent approval rating, while Obama received a 53 percent approval rating and a 40 percent disapproval by voters shortly after re-election. Now, his approval rating stands at 46 percent, just slightly higher than his disapproval.
The Inquisitr also reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally answered questions regarding the attack on the Benghazi consulate last year. But in response to hard questions about the Obama administration purposefully misleading the American public, and Hillary Clinton’s handling of the State Department, all she could do was spout, “What difference does it make?”
The difference, of course, is that the lies repeated by Hillary Clinton and others attempted to politicize the Benghazi attacks to make them appear favorable to President Obama right before the Presidential elections. The difference is that these lies shifted the blame away from Hillary Clinton and the State Department. The difference is that Hillary Clinton claims she was clueless and uninformed about multiple requests for maintaining security in a hot zone when millions of dollars were being spent by the State Department in other locations that were hardly dangerous (yet, of course, Bush is to blame).
At this time we still do not know who else in the Obama administration or the State Department gave Charlene Lamb the idea that there was “too much political cost” for keeping the Benghazi security forces at safer levels. This decision is directly responsible for lowering the number of diplomatic security agents in Benghazi from 34 to just three. While no one knows for certain what difference this would have made in the Benghazi attack, it’s easy to speculate that perhaps some lives would have been saved.
The worst part is that neither Hillary Clinton, Charlene Lamb, or any of the other people in the State Department were held responsible for their actions. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Deputy Assistant Secretaries Charlene Lamb, Eric Boswell, and Raymond Maxwell, and a fourth State Department official who is still unnamed, were thought to be the sacrificial lambs who would lose their jobs over the gross incompetence in providing security for the Benghazi Consulate. This phony announcement from the State Department was made under Hillary Clinton, so chalk that one up as another Benghazi lie. Yet, despite all this, people still think Hillary Clinton is doing a good job.
As Hillary Clinton tops Obama in poll data, which politician do you prefer? Do you think that Clinton, Obama, or never mind Charlene Lamb, should face repercussions for their decisions related to the Benghazi scandal?
