As Twitchy reported, some senators questioning Secretary of State Hillary Clinton this morning, Sen. Barbara Boxer in particular, seemed less interested in what happened on Sept. 11, 2012 than in what might happen in November 2016. The love-fest continued this afternoon in the House, with the hearing on Benghazi turning into another campaign launch event.

“You will be sorely missed, but I, for one, hope not for too long,” Boxer said this morning, and freshman Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif.) was anxious to second that emotion.

Gross. How much longer will the fawning go on? If you believe ABC News’ headline, Clinton “endured brusque questioning” and was “slammed” by House Republicans this afternoon. Capitol Hill’s love affair with Clinton, though, was bipartisan, with another freshman, Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), dissing the sitting president in the form of a (backhanded) compliment.

It’s hard to say, as the remark was met with crickets. Some watching the proceedings were not amused, either.

And with that, Hillary’s long-awaited testimony is complete.

    As expected, each member in the procession of obedient Progressives,
    inviting Billary Clinton to sit on their face.

    From one of the twidiots up top “This NOBODY……Rep.Tom Cotton from Arkansas, who was just elected is asking Hillary Clinton questions….are you kidding?”
    Getting a little uppity doing his job isn’t he. I guess they think obama’s the messiah and what is hillary now, the madonna? these people are so stupid.

    I wanted Hillary in 2008, but now, much like her Husband that I voted for twice, she is such a let down. My party has become such a disgrace, and the Republicans are no better! I guess I will become an Independent.

    These same hypocrites watched as Obama called Hillary and her husband racists and said … nothing.

    • michael s

      When did Pres Obama call Hillary and her husband racists?

  • Paul J. Citro

    Ah yes the pecking order!!

    I was stunned when my guy from Arkansas indicated he wished she had won the primary. Give us some time, we’ll work on Tom, but FAR WORSE were those Democrats, burning up the time with accolades of how wonderful Clinton did her job. This was a prime example of our government putting party above getting the truth. Had they wanted real answers, they would have met to organize the questions that would be asked. Each person asking one to two questions, keeping her answers on course. I am now convinced no answers will be forthcoming. She outsmarted them all.

    • Marcy Cook

      I have a feeling he meant…”we wish you had won the primary because even McCain could have beat your ass and we wouldn’t have to contend with the dictator-in-chief.”

      • Red Fred

        Well I sure hope that’s what he meant. I was startled, waiting patiently for my guy to speak, and hearing that.
