VIDEO: Clinton's heated exchange over Benghazi

(CNN) - "What difference does it make?" Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shouted in anger on Wednesday in response to persistent questioning by a Republican Sen. Ron Johnson about initial, erroneous government talking points that stated the Benghazi terrorist attack grew out of a protest.

    while the NRA is protecting my right to own a personal nuke to protect my family and home, Senator Johnson you must tutor this Clinton on the Limbaugh doctrine, clearly she is intransigent and must be put in her place.

    Typical. Weeping and nashing of the teeth to avoid answering the tough questions. What a charade. We know one thing from the hearing – She accepts absolutely NO responsability but sure feels bad about it. Its so easy to be a liberal with the media covering every misstep she made.

    It is disgrace the for the Republican party in the foreign relation committee trying, to discredit, disgruntled and defamed the most ardent public servant of the united state. Smart, dignified and intelligent women, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton. I witnessed greatness integrity and the mining of service from this singular great woman of our century.

    It's a shame that a person as admirable as Hillary is being bogged down in the mire that is the Obama administration.

    This makes some sense to me. The problem is that it already happened with some major screw ups. There must be done to make sure that this doesn't happen going forward. Rules that the ambassadors understand; needs for the guards to go with him or her no matter the rejection every time they leave a secured area. There also needs to be better information from the resources on the ground given to the embassy staff so they have a better idea what is going on there.

    It makes all the difference in the world! Two reasons. (1). There was tons of info telling you there was going to be a terrorist attack and begging for support. Why did you ignore that? And (2). There was an election going on in this country. This information would have made a huge difference in the outcome of the election and everyone knows Obama would have been driven out of the race in a heartbeat. That's the difference it makes, Hillary.

    I don't blame her for losing her temper. It's tiresome work to suffer fools, and the 113th Congress is a fool's paradise.

    Keep up the witch hunt GOP. It's making you look soooo good to the voting public. Dems should have a super majority in both Houses in 2014.
