Lapdogs: NYT, HuffPo, Sebastian Roché spin shameful ‘what difference does it make?’ into ‘Clinton’s takedown’

As Twitchy reported this morning, Secretary of State Clinton shamefully diminished the lost lives of four dead Americans by answering Sen. Johnson’s probing and excellent questions with “at this point, what difference does it make?”

Now, New York Times’ Jim Roberts, along with fellow travelers like actor Sebastian Roché (citing lapdogs at The Huffington Post), double down on the shameful. They disgracefully spin it as Hillary’s “takedown” of Sen. Johnson.


The sane rightly give them the business.

Precisely. What difference does it make? That’s not a “takedown.” It’s reprehensible and an utter disgrace.

Much like most of the media.

    Special place in the “bad country” for these people.

  • Elaine

    So I guess Durbin blaming Bush for the Benghazi attacks and the Hilster blaming Congress were also “take downs?” Disturbing.


    enough is enough, its time for a war on the MEDIA. These people need to be tared and feathered. Time is now or there will not be any time left.

  • bluemount

    Hillary got loud and boisterous. Not nice traits for anyone (male or female).

  • Aaron

    And this is why our country will continue to crumble.

    Everything is viewed down political lines. Nothing is seen for what it is.

  • rinodino

    Hilary= Welch/ Johnson= Well you know who

    “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

    • Kevin Krom

      Yeah, how dare a Senate oversight committee actually exercise oversight, or anything.

    • Noah Lee

      man, you are really stretching, stretch armstrong. You can attempt to spin this however you want. what is your end game in this? i’d like to see how you justify nominating somebody who voted for the same war you say you are against.

    • grais

      Hillary: What difference does it make that we lied our asses off, over and over again, to the families of 4 murdered Americans and to the entire nation? It’s not as if anyone really cares why they’re dead.

    • ZoriahShepard

      Are you really trying to draw a comparison to the McCarthy hearings? Benghazi isn’t a witch-hunt you dullard. Try again.

      • rinodino

        Benghazi isn’t a witch hunt??????????????????!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Oh yeah I forgot, I’m talking within the right wing bubble, that same universe who thought the polls were all wrong a few months ago, so I guess you wouldn’t think it’s a witch hunt, freakin idiots

        • AimToMisbehave

          You’ve established that you are completely ok with leaving Americans woefully unprotected in hotbeds of unrest and terrorism, and completely ok with the people who give the orders to do such. Noted.

        • PennyRobinsonFanClub

          BTW, in case you missed it the first time around with that McCarthy “witch hunt” — there were witches. If the investigation of the time does not prove that to your satisfaction, KGB records which have been made available since the fall of the Evil Empire (thank you, Pres. Reagan) show conclusively and explicitly just how riddled the US government, and the State Dept. in particular, was with Soviet agents, Communist Party members, and fellow travelers. You want to talk witch hunt? Let’s talk about lawful firearm owners and the NRA if you want to see a screaming “She turned me into a newt!” witch hunt.

            Gotta agree with you, KansasGirl…for the life of me, I do not understand why this troll likes to come here and give everyone ulcers…he’s either an 18-year-old living in his Mom’s basement munching on pork rinds (my apologies to those who like them!), or he’s forgetting to take his prescription medications.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Oh go and get stuffed, you pathetic little nut.

    • KansasGirl

      You have no decency.

  • Canadian in USA

    Honestly, I’m not surprised at this point. I think they’d cheer a Democrat for ducking and avoiding a dinner check, let alone a scandal, just so they can prop themselves up and blame the GOP.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Obama did just that during the campaign.

  • SAL

    As The Great One would say –The Potemkin Media, pathetic hacks, all of ’em.

  • Howzah123

    She lied to the faces of the Woods Family while their son was next to them in a coffin, blaming it on a video

    Hillary = Sociopath

    Scary so many cult followers and sycophants defend such an obviously reprehensible and vile woman

    • pajamakat

      What scares me even more is she is going to run in 2016. Guaranteed. God help us.

      • Aaron

        If she does, she’s just laid the foundation of a very effective attack ad her opponents will be sure to use.

        • Eric Boyer

          In your dreams.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Hillary: “Bill, did you kiss her good night, or rape her good night?”
    Bill: “What difference does it make?”

    • dmacleo

      good one :)

    OT but Twitchy related. Not sue why but posts here only load half the time and often only text. I only see a few lines of text in the previous Ron Johnson post. Yes I updated to the “new” Twitchy this morning. I so wish this would get fixed.

    • GaryTheBrave

      I’m having the same problem with the iPhone app. I don’t know if it affects Droid or Windows apps. It was fixed for a few weeks. They need to go back.

  • louisiana_mom

    I hope someone is taking names… In the even something should happen to these reporters, we can tell their families “what difference does it make?”

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    These idiots, Rachel Maddow at the top, know that their zombies will follow their lead. The left thinks it’s all a game and they’re the score keepers. Liberals, for once in your life, stand up for what is right. This is why no one can take any of you seriously.

  • TocksNedlog

    The next time a Democrat Senator asks a member of a Republican administration a question under oath, he/she should respond with “Who gives a flying f*** other than your mom on a street corner in the ghetto?”
    Praise from the liberal media will surely follow.

  • grais

    Why kill bin Laden? I mean, at that point, what difference did it make?

  • grais

    WMDs? Iraq War? At this point, what difference does it make?

  • rivers

    Can you imagine the punched in the gut feeling those family members must have felt upon hearing her say that?

  • Noah Lee

    “what difference does it make” will be enshrined side by side with “you didn’t build that” as the greatest political quotes of this decade.

    • nc

      If the media doesn’t bleach them out of as many sources as they can.

  • Guest

    “What difference does it make?” It’s the ‘difference’ between the truth and a lie.

    Clinton certainly did not ‘take down’ the GOP. She put the nail in her own coffin. This one statement will play over and over in 2016 should she decide to run.

    “Hilary Throws Down”

    America throws up.

    Guess I need a Twitter account now, i’m totally missing out on the hijacking game. You got Osama? What difference does it make?

  • jd

    She even answers her own, stupid question!
    “What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent if from ever happening again, Senator.”

    • $36544368

      Man, a person’s brain could strip a gear with that one…from one side of her mouth to the other in less than 5 seconds!

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    Really, coming at it from this administration’s point of view, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” can mean only one thing:
    “We successfully stalled this past the point where it made a difference – the election. You lost, bitchez. Get over it.”

  • Eric Boyer

    The big lie here is no one EVER said, it’s the video, only the video, and we’re certain it’s the video. It was always couched in terms of “Our current best information, etc., or we’re still investigating” This is OVER for the 99 percent of Americans who know who to blame for this– THE PEOPLE WHO ATTACKED US, not American diplomats.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    I was just thinking that myself, and looking for a good spot to slide in a snide, “Yeah, bunch of dead diplomats, bunch of dead kids . . . how’d it happen? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?!?!?”
