Note to Senator Ron Johnson–the role of the United States government is not to continue the narrative of the Republican Party.
It is worth your time to watch Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dismantle Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson. With no hesitation Clinton takes an exception to Johnson’s pointed inquiry into the State Department’s initial report that the attack had been mounted spontaneously as a reaction to an anti-Islam YouTube video.
“Honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is people were trying their best in real-time to get to the best information.”
No one has ever accused Johnson of being over-prepared with facts. With what seems to me to have been nothing more than a series of talking points prepared by FAUX News the conservative senator makes a fool of himself on national television.
It would seem to me that at such a critical hearing the opposition might comport themselves with a higher calling rather than the usual ‘gotcha’ politics that seems to be their natural default. It was a blunder of huge proportions when the electorate allowed Johnson to use his money to buy a senate seat. Today we see that money can buy an election, but not the intelligence to govern.
