White House: Buck Stops With Hillary on Libya
breitbart.com ^ | 10/12/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 10/12/2012 2:50:40 PM PDT by Justaham

Today, the White House finally revealed its policy on embassy security: keep President Obama out of the loop so he can claim plausible deniability and blame Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for any problems. In today’s White House press conference, a reporter asked press secretary Jay Carney about the situation in Libya. Carney responded:

As expected.

I don’t like Hillary either, but we all had to know she would be the scapegoat in this matter. Heaven forbid, Der Fuehrer would take any responsibility.

They are throwing Hillary under the bus LOL! Nice try though. That wouldn’t have worked with GW. They would still be calling for blood and rightfully so. Obama and that goon Biden are still responsible for keeping themselves abreast of what is going on in regards to national security and foreign affairs. They don’t have any meetings with Hillary? Nobody is talking to each other? No, this is not going to go away. They can throw Hillary under the wheels but the bus will just ride over her and hit them hard!

In all fairness, as head of the State Department, there is fault on her too, but yeah, they're gonna pin all they can on her instead of The One.

Anyone have a list of all the people and organizations that have been thrown under the Obama bus? It's pretty much everyone but Barack and Michelle now, isn't it?

“Not only would it be hard to predict how it would play out as far as Hillary is concerned in the future, but it would certainly damage Obama’s chances for re-election if she resigned,” he said.

Resign, Hillary, resign.

She is at fault, but so is Obama, because I’m sure he knew about the repeated hostile incidents prior to the actual attack. That is, he should have known if he had attended his daily security briefings, or even bothered to read them. A moron would have initiated an inquiry into whether there was adequate security at the consulate, given the number of incidents recorded in the days, weeks and months leading up to 9/11/12 attack. He’s just as culpable. He knew, but didn’t care. Each of those incidents was probably just another “bump in the road” to him.

The fact that the initial requests might have gone through the State Department is a Red Herring. 0bama certainly knew the truth of what happened within a day if not hours and continued to try to cover up the intelligence and administrative failures with one ridiculous lie after another.

The initial incompetence may well have been Hillary's, but the ongoing (and growing) cover-up have been perpetrated throughout the entire administration. 0bama is fully responsible for that.

LMFAO!!!

While I do find this blame game rather funny, what it is about is not funny by any means.

There are four dead Americans as a result of this outrageous administration, and they died horribly. I cannot imagine in my mind what they endured.

The blood of these men are on the hands of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

They should be in prison, for real, no joke.

Examples need to be made of these morons.

PUMA revenge:

I fully expect Hillary Clinton to do something to retaliate against both Jay Carney personally and also Joe Biden in the next few weeks. She’ll do it before the election…but won’t touch Obama until after he’s defeated, in which case I’m sure a lot of things will miraculously be made available to the incoming Romney administration (and its Justice Department) that were supposed to be shredded or buried in vaults somewhere. Ooops!

The Clintons do not take the fall... Others have always taken the fall for them... This is getting interesting.

Yet, at the same time, a bit funny too. Hopefully this will be a disastrous end to both Clinton and Oblamer. The icing on the cake would be Federal Prison for Holder for Fast & Furious.

Scapegoat, hell! No prez makes personnel decisions, hears complaints, peruses requests or makes recommendations to all departments on how to respond to all these matters.

This is Hillary’s baby, so far, but everybody is protecting her, for the sake of her legacy and to escape Bill’s wrath, and to get Barack, even Republicans are delaying fingering the SOS.

Everyone looks at Susan Rice who said nothing Hillary didn’t already say first. This is not even Rice’s pervue, it’s Hillary’s. It’s Hillary’s State Dept.

Rice just said it on Sunday. Hillary said it elsewhere, but just as often. It was HER intellegence watching it live unfolding, inside HER building, who knew this was not a video protest.

So, why didn’t she know, or DID she?

Both Obama and Hillary have a long history covering for terrorists. Obama with his Weather Underground friends Ayers and Dohrn. Hillary with the Puerto Rican Marxist terror group, the FALN, and also support for the Maoist-revolutionary Black Panthers while at Yale.

Obama has a major problem with trying to lay all the blame on Hillary and accepting Biden’s contention that the President, Vice President and White House didn’t know anything — Obama was blaming The Video as the culprit as late as September 25, a full two weeks after the Benghazi attack.

The Video as culprit had been debunked within a few days.

Their continuing to spread Biden’s contention that they didn’t know anything shows up their incompetence. The rest of the world knew — within hours and a few days.

Last week, Rice tried to say that they acted on the best known information at the time. So, did they have their heads stuck in the sand for 2 full weeks?

Then, they tried to blame it on a lack of data from the intelligence services. Oh, so the intelligence agencies were incompetent. Perhaps, Obama should have attended a few more security briefings — he might have learned something. Instead, he went to Vegas and took a tour of Hoover Dam.

Think very carefully out the situation.

Hillary the frontrunner gets hoisted by a come-out-of-nowhere Obama. She is defeated at the convention. Obama for some strange(?) reason invites her to become the SOS.

The big alternative rationale:

1. Hillary sees Obama plunging after one term and is able to convince the Zero to get her in a position to solidify her credentials beyond just a senatorial position? Just unfortunate she is not as lucky as most SOS that on her watch nothing serious happens like that idiot Cyrus Vance during the Iran debacle in 1979.
or
2. Obama is shrewd enough to see a Clinton-thorn-in-the-side for four years and convinces her to take the SOS deliberately knowing he can set her up for failure and thence never worrying about her?

Whos is the smart one here?

The PUMAs were supposedly against Obama, but in the end, even their support wasn’t enough. But this time, combining the support of the PUMAs, with enough women who are now for Romney, it could seal the deal and retire Obama to Hawaii with his loving sensitive wife.
