Kudlow: Obama to Pin Libya on Hillary Clinton?
CNBC ^ | 12 October 2012 | Lee Brodie

Posted on 10/13/2012 3:29:47 PM PDT by AFPhys


According to proprietary reporting from Ed Klein, Bill Clinton is concerned that Barack Obama is about to throw Hillary Clinton under the bus.

On The Kudlow Report, Klein said that President Clinton is reaching out to friends in the legal profession trying to figure out what his wife should do if she’s subpoenaed - called in to testify about events in Libya.

Joe Klein went on to say if you listen to the language used by Joe Biden in the debate closely – Bill Clinton's move may be more than simply precautionary.

“Biden said something like we were unaware – nobody told us. What does that say? The only person who did know is Hillary Clinton,” explained Klein.

“This is exactly what Bill Clinton was afraid of,” he added. The administration is going to pin the whole thing on Hillary. In recent days the administration has come under scrutiny for the way in which it released information about the Libya attacks to the American public.

On September 11, 2012 Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and the other Americans were killed after Islamist gunmen attacked the U.S. consulate and a safe house refuge in Benghazi.

At the time the White House called the attack a spontaneous event; in response to a film that portrayed Muslim in an unflattering light.

Republicans charge the White House deliberately misled the people, knowing it was an act of terror. They say the decision was political, that Obama didn't want to disclose that al-Qadea had made a comeback in Libya.

In response to these charges, the White House has denied any intentional cover-up and counters that it has been completely transparent – providing its best intelligence on the attack, and then refining it as more information came to light.

The FBI is still investigating the attack. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also has named a State Department review panel to look into the security arrangements in Libya.

Thanks for the link, AFP. I’m listening to the show now.
I thought it was going to be from the other Larry Kudlow, the Dem. stategist...how funny that they both have the same name.

Susan Rice needs to be subpoened and reveal under oath who directed her. I suspect it’s Val Jarrett...but she won’t be thrown under the bus. She runs the country and for some strange reason, is the Obama’s idol.

God is working behind the scenes with the Libya scandal...but sadly, five patriots had to lose their lives for truth. In that respect, they are heroes.

Pin it on her? She is the Sec. of State isn't she?

Col. Hunt On The Newest Libyan Revelations (huge coverup!)

Everyone was informed of the attack in Benghazi in real time. Sec. State, Pres., the Pentagon, the CIA ... It's automatic, required by law and all logged.

Does anyone know the timing of a subpeona to Hillary? Can she be called to testify in front of Congress before the election?

Thanks for the tip. I listened to Kudlow’s interview with Klein and I get the feeling this isn’t going to end well for Obama or Hillary. Better than it did for Ambassador Stevens, but bad enough.

From the podcast, I believe that Ed Klein believes that Obama has an intractable, if not insoluble, problem: does he throw his VP Uncle Joe under the bus, or does he throw Hitlery under the bus, or does he try to obfuscate dodge duck and bamboozle the press. Each of those choices has huge risks and little reward potential.

Unless the MSM makes this a story he doesn't have to do anything but stonewall

I never liked Ron Brown. Like most who worked for klinton he was slimy, but he must’ve had something on them. In typical fashion they arranged an “accident”. This came to mind when Stevens was murdered. Maybe he was going to spill the beans on “Barry”, so he was left unprotected in Libya, and the Taliban took care of a potential problem for Barry.

All Romney needs to do if Obama blames Hillary is to respond that Obama is president and that if he had been taking his security briefings as he should, he would have been better informed.

Hillary is incompetent.She has been a terrible Sec of State no matter how much the MSM tries to shill for her and Bubba. Of course she is the one most at fault for the security failure.Everything she touched turns to feces.Obama shares derivative guilt for appointing her and going along with it.

Hillary covered herself very well in her statement on 9/12. She never said that she believed that the attack was the result of the video or anything about a protest. What she said was that “some have said” that it was in retaliation for the video, blah, blah, blah.

FNC has been on it like white on rice. Romney has a huge opportunity to make hay with it next Tuesday and I’m sure he will. He should ask Obama if he agrees with what Biden said and also get Obama to go on the record blaming State or Intel. He could really get Obama to squirm if he plays it right.

Eventually, the rest of the press will get on board, especially if it starts to get really juicy like the Clinton vs. Obama angle.

I didn’t even realize there IS a Demodog strategist Larry Kudlow. Never heard of ‘im. If I had, I would have been sure to note that in the original post!

This is the “money and politics” economist Larry Kudlow who was asst. Director of OMB during Reagan’s administration. He has an excellent talk show on WABC on Saturday, as well as a gig on CNBC. He also co-hosts the Tuesday night show of John Bachelor.

I have had the strong impression for a week or more now that no matter what else goes down, Hitlery’s chances for pres election will be dashed by BenghaziGate. I don’t think she can survive a Dem primary due to this.

I have been writing and maintaining to friends for a week now that I am getting a distinct feeling that this is going to be Romney&Ryan by about 54-43. I really don’t see how Obama is going to get out of the BenghaziGate mess, and now that Ryan has acquitted himself so famously, the die has been cast unless Romney really sticks it to himself somehow.

Right now, even military crisis/action by Obama is going to be looked on in a very jaundiced manner by even his supporters.

Thought the same thing. Klein has been enriched throwing us red meat, but this is over the top, way to early. Can’t imagine reliable sources sharing with Klein on the elusive Clintons and their strategy, while they are playing along with Obama, teamed up together and blaming some phantom intellegence community for the fiction they came up with.

Together they will throw over underlings to appease the Issa committee.

Issa remarked at the close of the hearing this week, that he would like to call forth the SOS for a private inquiry. I am certain that will happen, given the media has picked up on this story.

The stalling will come in the senate where Harry Reid will drag his feet against any Senate hearing. Hear dem senators are interested in hearing testimony, according to Ulsterman Report.

Just finished: Wow. Of course we know that the buck stops in the Oval office, there never was a doubt about that in my mind. No matter how Obama & Biden want to spin, THEY KNEW as did HILLARY & Bill CLINTON.

In their arrogance they believed and still do they are immune to anything, do they have a surprise coming to them.

Those Republicans on the Congressional Hearing panel will not let this go, no matter how much the Media wishes they would.

I believe that many in the state dept, and intelligence are more than ready to tell all they know. I feel there must be many that are sick and tired of covering up for Obamas incompetence.

Hope much more is disclosed BEFORE the election.

That’s because Bill Clinton has no choice..Obama has the goods on him..but Clinton also has the goods on Obama..so its a mutual blackmail thing going on here..one has dirt on the other

You may be right, but someone has to explain these events and unless they can pin it on the little guy in jail in LA, one or the other has to take a bullet. Hillary will not go quietly into that good night. She will not mind taking him down, unless he (obama) can figure another way to explicate both.

However, she was explicit in her statements at Dover when the 4 bodies came in. She clearly stated this was all due to a video from the guy in LA.

Why is everyone silent about the 10,000 to 20,000 surface to air shoulder fired missles that are missing in Libya? This was testified to on WEDS.

RE: Ron Brown knew too much.. "In typical fashion [the Clintons] arranged an 'accident'" for him, several innocents were killed with him; that begs the question, did Obama have a reason to murder Stevens because Stevens knew too much? If so then "the Taliban took care of [that] potential problem for Barry."

I think that you just hit on something -- lots of strange goings on over there.. including visits by Barry's buddy Bill Ayers and wife IIRC recent news items. Lots of Why? questions -- almost like skids are being greased to help radical Islam.

This is what Beck said he was told that Stephens was doing there in Benghazi...trying to buy back the return of the stingers OBAMA gave to this gang of al Quaida. I have not heard this from any other source, but in the hearings the other day they confirmed that the place was seething with men with surface to air missles. If OBAMA provided the arms this could undo him. I pray it is revealed and is true.

FAST & Furious again. I see now the reason Stevens was (sent?) in Benghazi. As Ambassador his only boss is Obama, right?

So Stevens was SENT to retrieve/beg for the return of those missiles before the election, it failed. What idiot would think they would return them?

Was Stevens the only one who knew about those missiles? Or the only one who knew for a fact who gave the order to give the rebels the missiles? So he needs to be snuffed out quietly. Hillary find the way to do that, yessah massa.

What a deadly mess.
