Harvard Education? ...and Other Questions

One of the quotes of the year is
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Do you remember that statement, or have you ever even heard it?  Do you recall who said it and the context or circumstances?**

There is currently a culture of obfuscation, lying and cover up in our federal we can add convoluted grammar.  Even though this strange way of composing a sentence is what has attracted my attention, the root cause may be that there is a gang of criminals leading our country.  The evidence is that they talk funny; that may not be the real problem.  What happened to honesty, ethics, responsibility and TRANSPARENCY?

Is this the result of Harvard education? Is it a form of doublespeak?  Is it from spending too much time in Washington?  Has this speaker, testifying before a U.S. House Committee, spent too much time circumnavigating the earth at high altitudes, close to the top of the atmosphere? Is it simple lawyer-eze spin?

**Hint.  It was a lady graduate of Harvard Law who is the wife of a former President and who has since run for President herself and has held some very high government positions.  Her initials are HRC.
The statement was made in testimony before a U.S. House Oversight Committee hearing on May 8, 2013.  The hearing was about the Sept. 11, 2012 bombing at the U.S. consulate in Benghzai, Libya., that destroyed the consulate and resulted in the killing (murder) of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
