Today, amid a protest from its own membership, the National Automotive Dealers Association hosted Hillary Clinton as its keynote speaker at its convention in New Orleans.
And Clinton graced the audience, and the country, with the magnanimous admission that “My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” as though the murder of four American diplomats and intelligence officers – which she and the rest of the Obama administration lied about for months to suit selfish political purposes – was some sort of unfortunate accident.
Are we the only people disgusted by these non-specific apologies?
“I regret what happened in Benghazi.” OK, fine. Why do you regret what happened? What role did you play in what happened? Were you responsible for denying our people the security they needed to operate there? What were they doing in Benghazi which would require them to be in that city when everyone else had gone? Why were all the obvious warning signs ignored by her and her higher-up employees? Why did she blame a stupid internet video for what was clearly an Al-Qaeda attack on our people on September 11, 2012?
Regret Benghazi, fiddlesticks. What she regrets is that it’s an obstacle to her getting the White House without actually working for it. Anyone who supports this walking monument to incompetence and entitlement deserves to live in the ruin her leadership will create. The rest of us? Not so much.
