Author Ed Klein: As Benghazi blame nears Hillary, Clintons grow furious
Daily caller ^ | 10/12/2012 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 10/13/2012 1:26:48 AM PDT by TigerClaws

With tensions between President Obama and the Clintons at a new high, former President Bill Clinton is moving fast to develop a contingency plan for how his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, should react if Obama attempts to tie the Benghazi fiasco around her neck, according to author Ed Klein.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month.

None of this makes feel good about the competence of a second term Obama Administration as regards MidEast policy and national security.

All Wee Willy has to say to Obama is “Don’t F with my wife and accept responsibility or I’ll say I made a huge mistake in judgment and take back my endorsement.” Many blue dogs are begging for a reason to vote Romney!

Clintons raised the birthed issue the first time and the porno pictures of Stanley Ann. Assuming they have more dirt to dish on Obama and might hand it off to a third party.

Romney should keep digging at that wound, demanding clarification that it was Hillary`s Dept. of State that was to blame for the deaths of Amb. Stevens and the other three.

Ha. Does seem to help Romney.

Who made the political decision (let’s call it what it was) to lie about the protests over YouTube?

Hillary spent $70.000 apologizing with the tv ads.

Then came out and said they knew all along it was an organized terrorist attack. They had a live video feed!

Someone in the White House decided that didn’t follow the script. So they lied. They now want Hillary to take the fall.

Romney should stay the course and stay focused on his campaign.
When your opponent is digging a hole for themselves and don't realize it the best thing to do to stand back and watch and stay out of their away.
There will be a opportune time and a appropriate time for Romney to make his points.

Regardless of how this plays out between Obama and Clinton they both lose badly as does the party overall.

I have been following politics for the past 35 years and have never seen a bunch of more self involved group than the Democrats of today. They appear totally blind to how this plays across America.

I wish what little conservative media there is, would go at this twenty-four/seven. Just constantly blare that “it must be Hilary’s fault”. Act just like the dems.. offer no more proof than because I said so. The democratic response would keep it at the top of even the MSM bullcrap. Since the sheeple never read past a headline or a bumper sticker.. force
IT’S HILARY’S FAULT to be at the top of the news.

If reports are true and from what is said in this article it looks like Obama and his team snubbed Bill Clinton too after Bill Clinton offered to help with the debate team for Obama's next debate with Romney.
Looks like Axelrod is advising Obama to steer away from the Clintons and trow both of them under the bus.

The negligence of Bill’s own Dept of Justice in building “the wall” which isolated various Federal intelligence agencies from one another, led to 9/11/01.

His foolish old lady’s professional idiocy in the service the faux President led to 09/11/12.

They were all asleep at the wheel.

Of course Hillary is just as guilty of incompetence,
malfeasance and dereliction of duty as Obama and his entire administration of quacks, queers, commies, Affirmative Action appointees and other human oddities.

The administration has concentrated more on persecuting American citizens than thinking about the possibility of muslim attacks against us on 9/11.

Hillary is just the last in a long, unbroken line of worthless Affirmative Action Secretaries of State. She doesn't belong under the bus - she belongs in prison along with Obama, Biden, Holder and the rest of the Obama menagerie.

It will be interesting to see which side the press takes on this - Obama or Hillary?
Hopefully they will stick with Obama, letting Hillary take the rap and killing her chances for a run at the presidency in 2016.

Why doesn't someone ask Obama, “Who told you that the attack was caused by a video?” Sure would like to know what his answer would be.

There is the crux of it. You have two individual/groups who are used to having people fall on their swords for them. Now they are in a situation where one of the two parties HAS to take the blame. Neither side wants it to be them. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

It doesn't serve either the obamas or clintons for this to come to a head before the elections. If Romney pushes hard enough and in the right direction, he could get this all to boil over before that time, though.

After 911 I think laughing Joes excuse that they didn’t know the embassy requested more security is worse. Did they not know because they weren’t told or cause Obama was of playing either way not good for team Obama

Incompetant sophomoric idjits, in way over their head in Benghazi. Obama wants instability in Libya....a very “nuanced” fact. Hillery gave it to him.

That Biden’s claim and later White House statements that they had no idea there were security concerns at our embassy in Libya is a ploy to put all of the blame for this fiasco on Hillary and take the heat off Obama. Obama is notorious for throwing even long time supporters under the bus whenever they might pose any liability to his reelection. There is bad blood between Obama and the Clintons ever since Obama nixed Hillary’s seemed shoe in for the nomination in 2008 and Bill was furious that Obama would use the “race card” against her. I am sure the Clintons have some dirt on Obama that they will let leak right before the election to sink Obama and pave the way for Hillary to be the white knight riding in to save the Democratic Party after a crushing defeat in November.

Hillary was too busy with global "gay rights" issues to be concerned with acts of terrorism.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton marked Human Rights Day yesterday (12/6/2011) with a historic speech on international gay rights.

Said Clinton to a U.N. audience in Switzerland: "Being LGBT does not make you less human, and that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights."

Clinton added: "I speak about this subject knowing that my own country’s record on human rights for gay people is far from perfect."

Clinton also announced that the U.S. will use both diplomacy and $3 million in foreign aid to help the global fight for gay rights, not a huge some to be sure, but imagine the Sec. of State announcing any foreign aid being spent on gay rights abroad.

SOURCE: Here's The Historic Speech Hillary Clinton Gave On Gay Rights Dec 6, 2011 [link to full text of speech at site]

This was months before the attack on the U.S. embassy (considered American soil) in Libya, but it is only one example of the type of issue for which our Secretary of State was globetrotting.

Yep, called this one as soon as I saw the column on Hillary's State Dept Conference call. You could read the back story on that one as if it was in letters the size of the Hollywood sign.

Hillary was firing a shot over the bow of the SS Barry Hussein. She realized the music had stopped and she was the one without a chair.

No one seems to be considering the possibility that it is Obama who has the goods on Hillary AND Bill.

The executive branch is clearly attempting to isolate the State Department. In the world we think we live in, this would be extremely dangerous for Obama.

Unless he is the one who holds the trump cards.

Both Clintons have been doing Obama’s bidding for some time now, with severe potential consequences to their reputations.

Bill’s endorsement of Obama at the Dem convention was strange. Most of us have attempted to explain it by saying there was something Obama would eventually do for Bill and/or Hillary. Isn’t it possible Bill’s endorsement was coerced?

So far, it seems as if the Clintons are taking their medicine. It would be devastating to Obama’s reelection chances if Bill withdrew his endorsement. Obama is acting as if he knows beyond a shadow of doubt he won’t.

We’ll see.
