zer0 loses in this deal. It makes him look like a spaz when she takes responsibility rather than him.

No surprise. She’s not planning to be in the Obama Administration in 2016 so there’s no need for her to resign in DISGRACE.

Obama wants this story Jimmy Hoffa'ed now.

There are things that he doesn't want to see the light of day.

Yeah, Janet Reno accepted full responsibility for the horrible burning mass murder of women and children at Waco too—fat lot of good it did cuz she kept her job and kept up her jackboot behavior like shipping poor young boys at gunpoint to communist tyrannies.

People forget just how depraved and wicked the Clinton's were—they are experts of mendacious mea culpas.
PIAPS fell on her sword for the bigger Marxist and he damn well better reward her!

It is not like a Clinton to fall on his or her sword. She will use that sword to stab Obama in the back—just you wait.

The only way this makes sense to me is that she is as deeply involved as Obama is in hiding some dirty dealings in Libya. I believe it has to do with the weapons that were discovered missing when the dust cleared in Benghazi.

it’s a non-responsible responsibility acceptance, if that makes sense.

It sounded like “one of my people messed up so I’m responsible”..

Nothing groundbreaking but the media will use it to shield Obama.

Yup, non-apology apology. And it allows Obama to claim the matter is closed. Not to mention his minions in the press.

Could be both.

Obama sees it as a storyline changer just prior to the debate and Hil sees it as appearing Presidential.
No matter, both feel they are getting somthing out of it because that is who they are.

So what are the odds that Obama will now say something like “Mistakes were made both in intelligence and at the State dept. we are investigating and will correct those mistakes.” Weasel.

Making such a statement guarantees an Issa subpoena and testimony under oath...

...poor Mrs Clinton will have no choice but to spill the beans on Obama NOT to stay out of jail for perjury but as a patriot doing her American duty...

...and since, like her husband, she is a ruthless and expert liar her apparently selfless and courageous testimony will guarantee her opposing President Romney on the Dem ticket in 2016...

“zer0 loses in this deal. It makes him look like a spaz when she takes responsibility rather than him.”

I think you’re spot on. It may be her best political option out of a lot of bad options from her point of view. 4 years is a long time and she can spin it as her being a leader - “because that’s what leaders do”. Obama still has to explain the cover-up.

If she doesn’t resign and the Zero doesn’t fire her then Obama can be shown to be the aloof devil may care clown for leaving this jerk the cabinet.

This wasn’t very well thought out by the Zero unless this is a Hillary setup. If Hilderbeast is setting him up she won’t resign but stay on the cabinet, then she can say I just said that and offer her retaining her job as proof.

She accepts responsibility so now the issue is over? She arranged for Stevens to be in Benghazi on 9/11 with virtually no security and as long as she accepts responsibility everything's okay now?

Funny how this comes out one day prior to the debate. Isn't that a coincidence! Maybe this is why 0bama doesn't attend his security briefings; If something goes wrong he can plead ignorance. There's a lot he 'doesn't know about'.. Like Fast & Furious... Does 0bama know ANYTHING????

That could be a two-edged sword with the way the Clintons know how to spin things.

Before an intervuew with her is over, Romney and Ryan would have lead the charge into the embassy in person!

And the press would eat it up.

This times 1000! The Clinton definition of "full responsibility" is probably a close cousin to their definition of "is".
