Hillary Clinton Prepares to See Underside of Obama Bus
Red State ^ | Erick Erickson

Posted on 10/16/2012 6:16:00 AM PDT by IbJensen

Video at link.

I do hear that President Obama will let Hillary Clinton tour a tire factory this week so she can at least match a dress to the tire tread, but one way or the other, Hillary Clinton is now going under the Obama bus.

Joe Biden began the effort to throw Hillary under the bus in the debate Thursday night. He said the White House never knew about additional security requests. With a town hall style Presidential debate tomorrow night, Barack Obama needed plausible deniability. Hillary Clinton gave it to him on CNN.

She said she took full responsibility for the unmitigated disaster that was the coverup of what happened in Libya to Ambassador Stevens and she took full responsibility for the failure to secure the Ambassador. In short, she’s falling on the sword to save Obama.

Except, doesn’t the buck stop with Barack Obama? That’s what Barack Obama said when attacking Mitt Romney over Bain Capital.

[A]s president of the United States, it’s pretty clear to me that I’m responsible for folks who are working in the federal government and you know, Harry Truman said the buck stops with you.

That’s what the President said back in July. In the same interview, he went on to say, “one of the things you learn is, you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations.”

But then again, often what this President practices and what he preaches are two different things.

This is a "character moment" for Obama. Hillary has offered her pants suit for Obama to run and hide behind. (No doubt at a substantial price for such a substantial screen to be settled later.)

Obama will likely and characteristically stick his thumb in his mouth and curl up in the fetal position behind Hillary's ample buttocks. Or... will he try to look "Presidential" and say something like, "While many members of my administration can share responsibility for challenges that present themselves, the buck always stops at the desk of the President." Fat chance.

Romney has a chance to stick a crowbar under the volumes of billowing material, and pry up a section to reveal the man-child cowering beneath them. Everyone should see the character of a man who hides behind a women to protect himself.

The danger to America is not Barrack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barrack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

“Taking responsbility” without resigning is a LIE. It is not taking responsbility. It is verbal gymnastics to cloud the issue. It’s propaganda. It’s disinformation. RESIGN, HILLARY, RESIGN. That’s taking responsiblity.

If she’s thrown under the bus, best not be riding in it - she’ll probably cut the brake lines while she’s down there!!

Democrat Harry Truman said “the buck stops here”. In the the overall Obama economy, a buck doesn’t go as far as it used to. This time, it stops with the Secretary of State.

++++++++++++++++
I’m not sure I heard her take “ full resposibility for the unmitigated disaster that was the coverup of what happened in Libya to Ambassador Stevens” but I might have missed that part.

What I did hear was her amazing explanation of why they stuck with their obvious fabrication of the YouTube video as the cause of the disaster: it was just THE FOG OF WAR.

This post is SO insightful and spot on to where America really is right now.
My prayer is that this election is waking up many of those that have been foolishly led to the slaughter.

Very true. . and almost trusted pond scum like Al Gore, John Kerry, John Edwards. . .millions and millions of people are indeed sick in the head. It all gets down to what John Adams said, "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people, it is wholly inadequate for the government of any other. . ."

“.I WANT TO KNOW WHOSE IDEA WAS IT AND WHO GAVE THE COMMAND TO LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!”

That’s a tough one. Near as I can figure it lying to the American people started somewhere in the 60’s, it’s just that it is more widespread and more obvious as time progresses.

I believe you are specifically referring to Benghazi, but there have been lies before that, and it will continue.

Mr. Biden—would you care to comment on Benghazi?
It was one of my favorite shows, along with Dr. Kildare.

It was Hitlery’s job to guarantee security of Consulates, but, the responsibility lies with DumBO.

Anyone who believes that Hillary will be thrown under the bus or that her acceptance of responsibility is a big deal should have their head examined.

What responsibility is Hillary really accepting? What are the consequences for her? Why did she wait over a month to make this statement? Why didn't she testify at the congressional hearing rather than sending out Lamb and Kennedy? Why wasn't Hillary on the five Sunday shows instead of Rice? Are the American people that stupid that they can believe her sham acceptance of responsibility?

This is all political theater. The timing couldn't be more clear the day before the Presidential debate. And exactly what does Hillary have to lose? She is now the heroine protecting her boss who will help her political ambitions in 2016. Where are the calls now for her to resign if she really wants to accept responsibility? Or why doesn't she offer her resignation?

Obama is not hiding behind Hillary. They are partners in crime. Hillary knows that there will be no consequences for her and Obama can just continue to blame everyone for his failures. No doubt that Hillary is helping Obama and that she knows that the intelligence community is pissed off at Biden for blaming them. Hillary is trying to calm the intelligence community and prevent leaks.

The State Department was in real time communication with the consulate as events went down. They had reports from the 25 or so survivors who escaped. They were debriefed right after they left Libya. Yet, Hillary at the Andrews AFB ceremony honoring the four killed in Benghazi blamed the video. The ceremony was held on Friday, September 14th two days before Rice went on the five Sunday shows.

“I’m not sure I heard her take “ full resposibility”

You are correct. I’m not so sure just what she took responsibility for.

Obama, Hillary, Panetta, Rice, they were all there giving "COMFORT" to the families. I would have spit on each one of them, no way would I let them touch me.

Hillary can always fall back on the "Vast RightWing Conspiracy" are to blame for this exploding out of control, while we are trying to bury these 4 brave souls we had murdered.

Hillary is responsible for the poor security at the consulate and Obama is responsible for the cover-up.

Obama is showing he has the character of a man who, when his ship is sinking, will pull a woman off of a lifeboat to save himself.

But why is Hillary allowing herself to be used like this? Obama has spent his entire term blaming others for his failures — but never, till now, his own cabinet secretaries.

Like the Benghazi raid, ‘’Fast and Furious’’ also caused American casualties, yet Obama has never blamed his Attorney General for it or forced him to take full responsibility — he has always falsely blamed the Bush Administration. When an oil well blew up in the Gulf of Mexico, all of the blame was put on the oil company involved, not an iota on the Secretary of the Interior, whose Department had previously exhibited flaws in its permitting process.

Not to mention that everything that has gone wrong with the economy over the past four years has been laid at the feet
of the Bush administration.

Yet Hillary alone has been crucified for the sake of Obama. If Hillary has any followers, her martyrdom will cause them to rally round her in vengeful anger and propel her forward against the forces of the Obama administration (Joe Biden) as the campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination gets underway, the day after the November 6th election. Maybe that’s what all this brouhaha has been about.

Don't forget Hillary has cost Bammy millions. We're it not for her accusations of Obama’s in eligibility, he wouldn't have had to spend millions defending himself and we know Obama is all about money. Just look at his part ownership of what was to be the Chicago carbon trading exchange if his duplicitous cap and trade had passed.

I'm willing to be Obama is savoring this moment of what he perceives to be Hillary's political downfall.

A famous Obozo quote remembered from last year:

“uh, uh, uh, uh er, er, er, er...”

Truly a man of substance.

Obama’s in luck - he hides behind Hillary now - and tonight he'll hide behind the fat liberal. She'll provide plenty of protectin in the form of 'well picked' questions.

The commissions idea of Moderator fairness: an old liberal, a rude liberal and a fat liberal. Is that diversity enough?

Are our ‘leaders’ too damned mealy mouthed to state what the ‘unruly’ terrorists did to the ambassador’s body before and after they murdered him?

He was sodomized, damnit!

Hitlery knew the ambassador was a practicing homosexual before she sent him to Libya and the followers of the pervert Mohammed knew that as well. They, of course, practice homosexuality (especially with very young hairless boys) as a matter of course.

It seemed almost as though he was to be used as a ploy as was the 12 minute filmstrip, and as the guns that were handed off to narcoterrorists south of our border. There is an agenda here on the part of this most evil of regimes in history and when I see how close these damned polls are it makes me want to puke!

Liars, liars and damned liars!

In a proper frame of time these liars would be treated as treasonous rats who should be exterminated rather than pedestalized.
