Read all of Mark Steyn’s excellent post on Hillary Clinton and Benghazi.

A couple of days later, it fell to the 45th president-in-waiting to encapsulate the ethos of the age in one deft sound bite: What difference does it make? Hillary Clinton’s instantly famous riposte at the Benghazi hearings is such a perfect distillation that it surely deserves to be the national motto of the United States. They should put it on Paul Krugman’s trillion-dollar coin, and in the presidential oath: “Do you solemnly swear to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States?” “Sure. What difference, at this point, does it make?” Well, it’s the difference between cool and reality – and, as Hillary’s confident reply appeared to suggest, and the delirious media reception of it confirmed, reality comes a poor second in the Obama era. The presumption of conservatives has always been that, one day, cold, dull reality would pierce the klieg-light sheen of Obama’s glamour. Indeed, that was the premise of Mitt Romney’s reductive presidential campaign. But, just as Beyoncé will always be way cooler than some no-name operatic soprano or a male voice choir, so Obama will always be cooler than a bunch of squaresville yawneroos boring on about jobs and debt and entitlement reform. Hillary’s cocksure sneer to Sen. Johnson of Wisconsin made it explicit. At a basic level, the “difference” is the difference between truth and falsity, but the subtext took it a stage further: no matter what actually happened that night in Benghazi, you poor sad loser Republicans will never succeed in imposing that reality and its consequences on this administration.

Well, he is according to Mark Steyn. Listen to Steyn in the embedded audio/video above and throughout half of the audio/video below.

What do you think?

  1. Will Newt become the next John McCain?

  2. Will Romney be able to come back?
  3. Or, will there be a draft or convention fight with Mitch Daniels, Paul Ryan and/or Jeb Bush in the arena?

I say #3, so stay tuned…..

And, Mark Steyn is not the only Newt Gingrich detractor.

Let’s see:

And now, Mark Steyn.

The next 8-10 weeks are going to be quite a ride.

Day By Day by Chris Muir

Chris, the problem is most Americans are tired of all of the BS and have withdrawn from the political process. Most voters mire than likely could not pass an American Civics test.

And, look what has happened. America is disappearing as we know it.

Tomorrow Mark Steyn’s new book will be available, After America: Get Ready for Armageddon.

Buy the book, laugh and get ready for the future, if Americans don’t take back their country from the LEFT.

By the way, I am still in Las Vegas on vacation, won my first small poker tournament, ran about 12 miles today and will blog when I have the time.

I have friends arriving in Las Vegas tomorrow afternoon and the Epic Poker League Main Event starts Tuesday AM. So, regular blogging won’t occur until next week.
