Inhofe: Clinton showed “forceful attitude” you usually “don’t hear from women”

He was referring to Clinton's "What difference, at this point, does it make?" speech about the Benghazi attacks

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., said that Hillary Clinton showed a “forceful attitude” not usually heard from women when she blew up in January’s Senate hearings on Benghazi, in response to repeated questions about the State Department’s initial claims that the attacks were the result of protests.

“I think that she has gotten by with that type of a forceful attitude, something that’s not normally accustomed — that you don’t hear from women as much as you do men. And she came out so forcefully, and you could tell that it was orchestrated at the time that she said it,” Inhofe said in an interview Thursday on “The Rusty Humphries Show.”

“What difference, at this point, does it make” if the attacks were the result of a protest or not, Clinton said at the time. ”It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”

Via The Hill, Inhofe also had this exchange with host Humphries about possibly impeaching President Obama over the attacks:

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe said.

“The I-word meaning impeachment?” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe responded.
