Kansas girl hit nail on head.
What’s she taking responsibility for?
Not the cover up, which is scandal.
Just the fact that security was bad.
Which she will simply blame on someone else.
This is a non-admission.
We are missing the most important part of her statement. The “I take responsibility” is just SOP horse hockey. What she really said that is earthshaking is the final part of her statement, her reference to the “deteriorating situation in the Mid East.” That’s what Romney can nail Obama with.
It is no coincidence that this news broke right before the debate.
Possibly to try to change the subject and put Romney off-stride from what he’s “studied” up till now.
I hope it backfires big time!
She’s admitting to lax security which resulted in 4 deaths and should be fired immediately. However both she and the President continued to perpetrate the video lie and both are equally responsibility for the cover up. Buck stops with the lax security at her desk but the cover up goes to the top!
So when did she tell the POTUS and VP that the consulate has insufficient protection? And who asked Susan Rice to lie about the video?
“Did Teddy accept responsibility for Mary Jo?”
Wikipedia kindly says YES in their own way....
“His doctors had informed him that he had suffered cerebral concussion and shock, but he did not seek to use his medical condition to escape responsibility for his actions.”
Yep-— I was right about Hellary being a puppet on Bams strings to the end. He’s like a pimp to her-— I mean it!
Truman fired MacArthur. Time for Zero to ask for HRC to resign. And even if he doesn't, he can kiss the PUMA votes goodbye for throwing her under the bus.
It worked for Bill Clinton when Janet Reno did it.
“Yep- I was right about Hellary being a puppet on Bams strings to the end. Hes like a pimp to her- I mean it!”
What if it’s the other way, and the Clintons saw their chance to hurt Hussein by first admission of “responsibility” and forcing the issue right before the debate, having seen and accepted his upcoming defeat. After he’s forced to come clean and allegedly disgraced by his incompetence, she still gets to run in 4 years.
Something else must be going on.
Dick Morris on with Hannity just know and in effect passes on commenting on Hillary accepting responsibility.
He changed the topic to Internet control.....
Surprise! Hillary falls on her sword the night before the debate.
Doesn’t wash. Hillary may be responsible for security, but it’s Obama who has set Middle East policy.
What’s next? Will Tim Geithner now stand up and take full responsibility for America’s terrible economy so that Obama won’t be blamed for it? The poor unemployment figures over the past four years, the continuing housing crisis, the soaring national debt — Obama wouldn’t have to answer questions about any of these failures at the remaining debates if Tim would only say, I’m sorry, it was all my fault.
To avoid all possibility of Obama looking bad at the debates, Obama’s Energy Secretary could publicly take full responsiblity for our high gasoline prices, his Education Secretary for our deteriorating schools, and so on.
Barack Obama: The man who was always in our faces but was never there.
Yeah, the old Hillary would be plotting her revenge. I can think of one potential attack but it could be mutual assured destruction. ;-)
As long as the media is cooperative, this is brilliant.
1) Romney already wasn’t allowed to bring this up because it was “politicizing” it. He’s now extra-not-allowed because Obama had nothing to do with it.
2) There will be media articles slobbering over Hillary for her “courageous” taking of responsibility. Mark my words.
3) In the 2016 Presidential campaign, when Hillary runs, Republicans won’t be allowed to bring this up because it is “ancient history”, 4 years ago, and we need to “move on” and look “forward.”
I noticed that. Strange, huh?
I still have to wonder why security at Benghazi was so bad, and why Ambassador Stevens was there. I’m not suggesting anything sinister, but Obama does have the attitude that Muslims are our brothers and we should assume the best about them and their intentions.
I have a hunch this is a news dump right before the wag-the-dog strike in Libya. It could happen soon, right before the debate.
As to what happened after September 12th...?
The Obama lying cover up. It was the movie.
This may take some of the heat off Obama, but it doesn’t explain why she refused requests for more security in Benghazi, or why there was no U.S. response during six hours of attack, or why she participated in the “video” excuse to justify the attack.
“Romney should push Obama on this none the less, let Obama say: Well...um...Hillary said she done it...uh.”
Absolutely - the diehard Hillary supporters will go ballistic if he is forced to say it out loud and some of them will stay home on election day as a result. Some of those all important women voters maybe?
Bad move by Hillary Clinton, even worse for Obama!!! item#1, you never make this kind of a statement outside of the country. #2, the statement is weak, incomplete, devoid of any meaningful facts and totally CYA in nature. Hillary will get royally roasted tomorrow and Obama/Biden will look like and be the buttheads they both really are.
America & Americans, you better darn well wake up and get rid of these people. They are in full panic mode, no one is leading the country. Farrakhan and Blacks are saying they will riot in the streets if Obama is not re-elected. I guess they have not figured they makeup only 13% of the USA population. i have had it with Obama, the Clintons, the Black Racists, the Democrat Party, the NAACP, the CBC, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the Obamabot media, the labor union goons, the lousy teachers and their unions that care more about pay and their benefits then educating our children!!!
If there are fools and idiots out there that want this nightmare to continue, go right ahead and vote for Obama...but....don’t come around complaining when this economy shatters to naught and you all have no jobs. Buffoons, all.....”There is no such thing as a free lunch”, period!!! Obama and his Obamabot American haters must go!!! ABO!!! Anyone But Obama!!! Otherwise kiss this country goodbye!!! As for you good guys, come November 6, 2012, or before, get your butts out of your chairs and sofas and vote to destroy these evil people politically, forever!!!
Thanks for posting the link to the old story. I remembered it, that’s why I made the comment.
I noticed that. Strange, huh?
Thought Morris would unload but didn’t.
Will be interesting to see what later in program coverage will reveal
Exactly. That's on 0bama's plate.
Anywhere other than National Review and the Weekly Standard? Hardly.
Like I said you'll see at least a couple of MSM columnists praise Hillary for "courageously" taking responsbility.
Romney should say during the debate: “President Harry Truman said “The Buck Stops Here”. I suppose with this adminstration the buck stops with Hillary”.
Imagine how all those diehard Hillary supporters will feel. War on women? How about a war on a woman?
We are missing the most important part of her statement. The I take responsibility is just SOP horse hockey. What she really said that is earthshaking is the final part of her statement, her reference to the deteriorating situation in the Mid East. Thats what Romney can nail Obama with.
Yes, why volunteer that...?
Oh what the second black president must have on the first black president! One can only wonder.
Thank you! This whole thing is so - well, strange, but looking back, “strange” could probably describe every moment of the last four years.
Maybe Obama promised Hillary a pardon for her Benghazi shenanigans.
You are right on!!! The CYA act with the Obamabot media is now in place. But.....the world has changed. there is more to our side then you think, whether it be, Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Breitbart, Morris, O’Reily, Greta, tons of blogs, etc. FNC will have its say as well as talk radio. The Obamabots are in panic across the board.
And....if you believe that Romney/Ryan have made great strides since the first debate, that’s good, but.....that was already happening before the 1st debate, as the polling groups could be more in line with reality. We need to attack, attack, attack with everything we have, the country is at stake. We can win this election and save the country for our kids and grandkids and all American kids, yet to come!!!! ABO!!!
Agree. I have the same frustration.
The media is infinitely more in the tank for Hillary than they are for Obama.
If she turned on Hillary, she damn sure better stay out of Ft. Marcie Park.
so either Obama will accept that Hillary’s statement that she is to blame ....and dump it off on her and look like he’s not in charge of anything ....
or he’ll have to say ....something like ...the buck really stops with me because I’m the president.....therefore excepting blame
she kind of forced his hand with this to me
I agree with you 100%!!! The media will move to shield Hillary Clinton, not Obama. Hillary & Bill Clinton are the saviors of the Democrat Party. Why do think Bill Clinton is out campaigning half-heartedly for Obama. The Clintons hate Obama with passion, no matter what face they wear in public!!! They know Obama is toast, and....they will be standing there to pick up the pieces of the Democrat Party after, November 6, 2012!~!!
I think we know who is in charge now.
Why is Big Mouth Dick Morris quiet on this one?
Remember, like with Nixon...it's as much the cover-up as it is the crime.
Hillary just hung Obama out to dry.
I noticed that, too. He totally skipped over it and started rambling about the U.N. delegate supporting an internet tax.
Love the bad photoshop of this pic....what liars.
Never thought I would see her go willingly under the bus. What’s the catch?
