President Barack Obama posed for a photo-op this morning in Virginia, where he is getting ready for tonight's presidential debate. He ventured out for a photo-op, and had this very brief exchange with a reporter:

how courageous of him.
No one is to blame! Except Bush!
Maybe Hillary really DID throw him under the bus!!
In the debate tonight, Romney should say something like: I appreciate Secretary Clinton stepping up and taking responsibility for this fiasco. She is exhibiting the courage of a leader. But, Mr. President, as President Truman said, the buck stops with the president. This is your administration and you should not expect a subordinate to bear the responsibility for this this.
Such a statement would not only make O look like the bozo he his, but would hit a nerve among independents, especially women voters.
He says she is, and he is done with women and Hillary supporters.
He doesn’t say, and he’s going to get destroyed by Romney.
"I really can't tell you that Sec. of State Clinton is responsible for the deaths of out Ambassador and 3 other bumps in the road in Benghazi. It would be wrong for me, YOUR President, to even suggest that Sec. Clinton and her staff were inept and therefore fully at fault. Thank you."
I’ll bet there is a very interesting match of political jiu jitsu going on here. My money is on cut throat Clinton over sock puppet Obama. He’s way out of his league.
Depends on the meaning of the word “is”.
“IS” she now to blame (present tense)? Yes, she claims the responsibility.
Was she the cause of the problem (Islamist insurgency in the wake of the US led airstrikes into Libya and support for the torture/murder/abuse of a POW named Momar Gaddafi)? She was a member of the cabinet and she DID gloat that “WE came, WE saw, HE died”. But that “we” implies others were involved, not just Mrs. Clinton. It was Obama’s pro-Islamist foreign policy and the tail wagging the dog to get Fast and Furious off the front page.
Will she still be THE one responsible next week? Only if there are no further questions or investigations or punishments.
It was Baraq Hussein Ubama who repeatedly wagged his finger at those wicked anti-Islam filmmakers who provoked the attacks.
Reporter: “How are you feeling about tonight?”
Obama, smiling: “I feel fabulous. Look at this beautiful day.”
Faaaabulous dahlink! Keep it light, keep it bright—keep it gay!
Excellent.. “Hillary should lose her job just as Eric Holder at the DOJ should’ve lost his job over the ‘Fast & Furious’ gun running scheme to Mexican drug cartels.”
Now you know he couldn’t answer the third question as it would have required the teleprompter.
Question for Obama-"Master, can I be your second beard?"
Hmmm...you may be right on the target.
Leading from behind. Anyone?
Even if he comes out now and ‘take responsibility’, won’t do him any good.
The Third way:
Barry doubles down: “Didn’t you notice the video maker is in jail?”
We ALL make a funny face and swirl our index finger around our right or left ear, and go, “Do-Dot-To-Do-Do!”
