When Senator Ron Johnson asked Hillary Clinton about the Obama regime's intentionally misleading statements about the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, her response was petulant and insolent: "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?"
It makes a big difference, Mrs. Clinton. It makes a big difference because the President of the United States, instead of vigorously defending American principles and the freedoms protected by our Constitution, sided with the terrorists and condemned a silly anti-Muslim video for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It makes a big difference because President Obama knew that this was a pre-planned terrorist attack and lied to the American people about it, blaming a silly video that had absolutely nothing to do with it.

Why did Barack Obama feel the need to blame America and apologize for our liberty instead of placing sole responsibility for the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the mindless savages who raped and murdered our ambassador? This reveals a deeply anti-American ideology in the White House, one inclined to "blame America first" and assume we have somehow brought these war crimes on ourselves. That makes a big difference, especially if Mrs. Clinton wants to be elected President in 2016. Does she share Obama's views or not?
The other reason it makes a big difference is because Barack Obama lied about the terrorist attack. Why did he lie? Why did he blame the video when he knew the video had nothing to do with it? What purpose did that lie serve? What was Obama trying to accomplish? What was the agenda behind those lies? The answers to those questions makes a big difference, especially since we are stuck with this man for the next four years. Clinton's response was shameful. There are many reasons why she is not qualified to be President, and this outburst by itself should disqualify her.
