Obama on Benghazi: 'Ultimately ... I am responsible'
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 10/27/12 11:27 PM EDT

President Obama vowed Saturday to hold the right people accountable if it's found that there was breakdown in communications within the intelligence community ahead of last month's attack in Benghazi.

"What my attitude on this is is if we find out there was a big breakdown and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable," he said in an interview with "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski conducted in Nashua, N.H., according to a report on MSNBC.com.

...the first person accountable is OBAMA - for not attending his intelligence briefing — there was the first break down!!!

What a traitor - scum - pansy little wimp - coward - arrogant little idiot!

4 Americans were killed and his response was to say “the future does. Ot belong who insult the prophet of Islam”

Sounds like another “fog of war” excuse will be coming shortly.

Mr. President, are you defining “ultimately” as “since I’ve been caught in my lies?”

ahead of last month’s attack.............Read what he said. He was not speaking to his actions or his administrations actions DURING the attack, he is just talking about finding an intelligence spook to scapegoat for not knowing the attack would happen.

Who cares about what happened BEFORE the attack Mr. President? We care about what orders you gave DURING the attack. We KNOW you were in the oval office with Panetta and Biden at 5pm eastern (which is 11pm Benghazi time). By this time the Ambassador was already unaccounted for and the consulate in flames. What orders did you give your Secretary of Defense? That is the question.

Media lead should be: “He should first fire his entire cabinet, then resign in disgrace.” Oh, wait, we are talking about a media darling here. He’ll continue to get a free pass.

This is one of, if not the biggest cover ups in presidential history and the MSM is in blackout mode! If people would just ignore the MSM like the MSM are ignoring Ben Ghazi then we'd get somewhere!

I, for one DEMAND this president tell us WHO ordered these stand downs, immediately!

Mr. President, just exactly what did you do to protect the 30 employees of the consulate?

He left them to fend for themselves and he went to bed. That is disgraceful and dereliction of duty...grounds for impeachment.

"What my attitude on this is is if we find out there was a big breakdown and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,"

MR. PRESIDENT, THAT WOULD BE YOU.

——”Ultimately as commander-in-chief I am responsible and I don’t shy away from that responsibility,” he added.——

Of course he undestands this disaster is costing him any chance of winning re-election so he is now trying to prelude any actual questions from the MSM about his responsibility...before they catch up with Fox News reporting on this....

His kneepad media sycophants no longer need to bother him with probing questions since he has now “ taken responsibility “

reply to the headline:

You bet your butt, YOU are responsible. No one else is, despite your dissembling staff and your lies and obfuscation.

Looks more like they are test-driving a new excuse.

I didn’t watch it. I guess it really depends upon what the question was. This would be a legitimate answer if he was asked about intel before the attack.

There was “someone who didn’t do their job” alright and it was Obama. As Commander in Chief he is a national disgrace and he should be held accountable.

Clearly the MSM is trying to keep that from happening, but the word is leaking out. Unlike 1969, the MSM doesn’t get to control 100 percent of the dialogue.

In “The Princess Bride,” the evil Vizzini says “Inconceivable!” every time the heroic Westley dodges death.

Finally Montoya the Spaniard says, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Everybody in this administration, from Hillary to Obama, keeps “taking responsibility” and saying “it’s my responsibility,” regarding this appalling slaughter of Americans.

Either they don’t know what it means, or they think we don’t know what it means.

Because if our pathetic rulers (including the stupid cowardly lazy House and Senate Republicans) actually understood the word “responsibility,” there would be resignations and/or impeachment. Like, yesterday.

“Either they don’t know what it (responsibility) means, or they think we don’t know what it means.”

“Ministerial Responsibility” has never been much in evidence in our system of governance. But these clowns make a farce of the entire concept. Just empty words.
