All Due Respect

January 23rd, 2013

Inspired by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Benghazi this morning.

 

“With all due respect…” — Hillary Clinton Senate hearing today

 

Respect is something you have to earn.

When someone disrespects you, you owe them nothing in return.

 

Too many Republican Senators don’t know what respect means,

Or that their lack thereof the entire institution demeans.

 

So Madame Secretary, I have to hand it to you

For NOT showing those pompous prigs the respect that was due.

 

If you had shown them the respect they showed you, I think that you might

Have then been attacked for being impolite.

 

You took the high road and showed them much more

Respect than they themselves have ever earned before.

Here are Now’s and Andrea Mitchell’s panel discussion of Sec. of State Clinton’s appearance today before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, including outtakes from the hearing (Clinton’s quote is at the 50 sec. mark of the first clip).

Here’s the full hearing. So what do other people think about the level of respect/disrespect shown by GOP Senators? Am I off-base here? Please leave a comment below to let me know.

Here’s your theme music, Respect, by the great Aretha Franklin.
