Hillary's sinking ship
Fox News ^ | October 11, 2012 | Arthur Herman

Posted on 10/13/2012 1:59:15 PM PDT by kingattax

Two and a half weeks ago I wrote a column for Fox News Opinion calling on Hillary Clinton to quit as Secretary of State.

As more information comes out about what really led to ambassador Chris Stevens’s death on September 11, we’re hearing growing murmurs demanding the same thing. It’s not a full-throated chorus yet. But yesterday’s hearings in front of the House Government Oversight Committee are encouraging others to join in.

Poor girlfriend...

1st worse decesion you ever made in your life Hillary was to marry that cursed Democrat...

You should have stayed a Republican and kept on going with your own political ambitions...

On the one hand, she should resign, on the other hand, she will be unemployed after January...;)

THIS is what the deal is: PROMISE not to run in 2016 and she will NOT be investigated by an ‘independent’ prosecutor. The Rats will be stuck with whoever they can muster up.

It appears that Hillary and Bill differ in a very significant way. Hillary and BO are also exactly the same in this very significant way.

They both surround themselves with sycophants and believe everything they say. Bill with all his faults did not suffer from this malady.

In the end Ambassador Stevens had to trust his life to hired local security–who, we now know, led the killers to Stevens’s hiding place where they could torture, and murder him.

Are these the same people Hillary thought would be grateful because we liberated them? Are we really this stupid?

When it comes to ambassadors, the buck stops with Hillary.

The murder alone of a diplomat isn't enough to call for her head, BUT when the ambassador had no business even being in ben gazzie, let alone being there with NO SECURITY! This is CRIMINAL! Hillary should go to JAIL not just get FIRED.

LIBYA FALLOUT GIVES RISE TO OBAMA-CLINTON FEUD

A nasty rift has opened up between President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the fallout from the terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. This feud may undermine and threaten Obama’s reelection chances. Obama and Clinton both do not want to be held responsible for the negligence before and the cover-up after the Libya attacks. Clinton biographer Ed Klein on Friday reported that Bill Clinton, sensing Obama’s political team wants to pin legal and political blame on the State Department and Hillary Clinton, has been working on doomsday and contingency scenarios “to avoid having Benghazi become a stain on her political fortunes should she decide to run for president in 2016.”

“If relations between Obama’s White House and Hillary’s State Department rupture publicly over the growing Benghazi scandal, that could damage the Democratic ticket and dim Obama’s chances for re-election,” Klein writes.

According to Klein’s sources, Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team in case there are cables or other evidence that would legally implicate Hillary. Klein also told The Daily Caller that Bill has even considered advising Hillary to resign if the Obama administration tries to make her the “scapegoat.”...

There you have it. She would never break that promise. Ever. Unless of course the people demanded she run.

While it will not atone for the humiliation the nation suffered at the hands of terrorists in Libya, and the murder of our ambassador and three others, if this debacle does at least forever sink the vile creature who is our Secretary of State then this cloud does indeed have a silver lining.

I agree completely, but she is NOT going to let Obama run over her. In this battle . . .

There will be blood.

(much like the administration's actions did to poor Ambassador Stevens and his co-workers)

This might have been Hillary’s exclusive decision, but I can’t imagine Obama was not consulted at some point. Hillary isn’t dumb. She would not want to be out on a limb having to depend upon Obama to provide the only available lifeline!
My guess is she carried out White House policy and can show that it was indeed White House policy.

If there was any doubt HRC was unfit to be President, this is it. This woman has been just as bad as Obama - an incompetent liar who will sacrifice the lives of Americans to further her political career.

What continually amazes me is that the Obama administration reflexively lies about EVERYTHING, & they are so very bad at it.

If we are gonna have a Liar-in-Chief & I know we will, then can we at least have a PROFICIENT liar?

How Clinton & Obama thought they could cover up this criminal negligence, with so many people well aware of the dangerous situation in Benghazi, is beyond my comprehension. Are they that stupid, or is it that they really don't care? Do they ever think about anything beyond the very next move? I suppose it is some small blessing that they are not better at lying & corruption.

What worries me is that our enemies are seeing how incompetent & corrupt our leaders are, & they will use this opportunity to hurt us. Most likely, the Benghazi attack is probably a product of this opportunity. There will be more attacks, & especially so, if Obama is reelected.

I agree. They're in a deadly embrace. They both get out of this together, or they will bring each other down. Hillary made the executive decision to get Bin-Laden. Several attempts were nixed by Obama, and the final attempt where Obama finally relented was probably because he told her she would be held responsible if it went wrong. So Obama took the glory from the State Dept. He can't do that again (make her responsible if things go wrong), because Hillary will let the evidence leak that Obama was against getting Bin-Laden and that damages half of Obama's legacy. Obama will be forced to not totally abandon Hillary, lest they both go down.

Does anyone seriously think that Obama is going to dump Hillary before the election? The sucking sound he would hear would be Hillary sycophants running away from his campaign. Any kind of a resignation from Hillary would mean the end of her presidential aspirations, and that isn’t a nightmare that is going to go away easy.

She needs to tell exactly what really happened—then resign saying she didn’t do anything wrong but followed Obama’s lead. Toss him under the bus first! This would cut Obama’s throat—and—at the end of her resignation she should tell the MSM that she is voting for Romney and every right thinking American should as well! Never happen—but a great fantasy.

Oh please. You either have integrity, or you don’t. Climbing over the guilty because their boss is a player in the big game gives her a pass and misses Obama by a mile. No prez is privy to the day to day requests and rejections from field operators.

Hillary Clinton is the captain of her ship of State. She maliciously chose to risk lives for political gain, and took those lives in the end. A direct set up of of four sitting ducks.

Hillary should RESIGN. She has not. Take her down.

It could be, but more likely the "show of weakness," the liberal version of "show of force," was agreed-upon policy with the White Hut and Hillary has proof. That's why a spokesperson came out later with the statement that (paraphrasing), "of course the President is ultimately responsible for the safety of US personnel around the world." Hillary told them "if I go, we go" when the post-veep-debate spin was absolving the White Hut of all knowledge.

It is inconceivable that there were not policy discussions galore about the whole Arab Spring process. No, there will be an unholy truce held until after the election where either way, it won't matter anymore.

NO-—— WE aren’t, but Hillary is.

Muchelle Bachman was crucified when she wanted Hillary’s rug girl investigated, but the fact is she should be investigated, and so should Hillary.

How much influence did she have in getting Hillary to hire Muslims to guard an American Embassy.

Of course we will never know, because even if Romney is elected, he will allow no one to investigate either Obama, Hillary or Eric Holder.

The incoming Administration has always elected to givce the outgoing Administration a pass. It’s time that was stopped. The Obama Administration is just too corrupt and too guilty to be given a pass.

It’s safe to say she will not be there if Obama
Is re-elected. Obama will not get rid of her before election. Does she resign to help or hurt Obama? If she hurts him, dens will never forgive her. She would have to disown the democratic party.

I think she stays and takes any flak Obama needs to deflect onto her.

When you live in a world where you are never asked to explain childishly transparent lies you begin to think you can say ANYTHING...and get away with it. It’s only natural.

And the sad part is she will be president in 2016: voted into office by the same crew that was so excited at the chance to vote for 'the first black president. It will be 'the first woman president' this time. The Clinton "machine" will pulverize M.R. (who I think will be elected next month).

The Chicago team is bush league compared to Clinton's.

The Kenyan must go.
