So people are dead and she's responsible? That usually means jail time where I live.
Oh wait, it's Hillary! She never pays for her screw-ups!
Hillary has to STOP rolling over for all these men in her life! First it was Bill. She stuck it out even after all the WH humiliations with Monica! Now it's her boss! What does he hold over her I'd like to know???
to take FULL responsibility she should be in front of the American people and not off in far away Lima Peru.... saying what she has to say.... this is her modus operandi on most everything - always commenting, making statements from the other side of the world, and why didn't she go on all of the networks instead of Susan Rice way back when, and what about this NY Times article today stating arms etc going to the A Q, exactly opposite to what Biden stated in his debate with Ryan..... things are very rotten in .... the state of ... PLEASE dear God, let the people wake up and Romney win this election
I'm sorry but the whole premise of her "mea culpa" is utter BS and here's why.
1. She "takes" responsibility as if it is a burden that someone must bear. She can't "take" responsibility as the position she holds IS inherently responsible for the lack of appropriate security.
2. The fact that Al Qaeda is deeply rooted in Libya, how unstable the country is and the many events that had already occurred speaks volumes about the need for security. Knowing the daily digest that gets sent out on the threat - there were deliberate decisions made to NOT put security in place.
3. Making these decisions was a policy - and SecState, the National Security Council and the President would have all known this. To claim otherwise is malarkey. If Dear Leader is claiming to have not known - he is either incompetent or misinformed. Being that the left claims he is possibly the brightest most engaged man to have ever held office, of course the old blame game routine must be played.
Not enough. She needs to be put on trial. So do the rest. They don't get to walk away from this. NO MORE!
Too much partying and playing and not enough working and getting their jobs done and it shows in the incompetence on their parts. We cant survive with 4 more years and not showing up for work.
If Hillary is responsible and accountable as she claims - why doesn't she resign? That's being accountable. Anything less is just rhetoric. She is clearly unable to do the job, now we have four dead Americans and she's going to make sure it doesn't happen again? What qualifies her for a second bite at the apple?
I think Hillary is playing chess, or maybe liars poker. She is going to take the fall for the murders of Amb. Stevens and the other three but she is going to saddle Barry with the cover up. Just watch, she hates his ass and is going to take him down with her. This is the very best dinner theatre any of us conservatives could possibly hope for.
Whitewash Alert! All Hillary said was that she takes responsibility for the 60,000 plus employees in the State Dept. She did not directly take responsibility for the deaths of a US Ambassador, 2 Navy Seals and another support agent. The timing dictates that this is a political smokescreen to help Obama's plummeting polls.
Aside from the direct responsibility for the deaths of those Americans -- an issue unto itself of malfeasance, the WH is complicit in a cover up of epic proportions in that it hides the incompetency of the entire Obama administration as well as the State Dept. What we have here is a circus that should ultimately result in a circular firing squad as the truth percolates to the top.
Clinton falling on the sword, makes her appear like a hero. I'm sure they polled this before Clinton made the statement!
To me this means very little. The dems along with the MSM, hope this puts a stop to all the questions. Which it doesn't too many questions haven't been answered.
Even if you put the security problems squarely on her shoulders, what about all the statements from Sept 12th thru 25th, blame the video, arresting the filmmaker with all eyes watching, the money Obama and Hillary spent on AD time in the ME? I don't think this will have the effect they think, unless it means Candy Crowley throws out any question related to Libya, which will make her look bad and even more in the tank for Obama.
And for it to be a pure political move on her part, is just weak and will come back to haunt her if she truly wants to run in 2016.
trs, when you say that everything is politics for this administration, you hit the proverbial nail.
If Hillary really thought she was responsible, she would have resigned.
She's defending Obama, whatever good that may do this late.
She should have remembered that there are millions of Americans who hold Obama and her responsible. They won't go away after Obama leaves the WH, and they'll see through this clear attempt of making Obama look good before the debates and the elections.
Romney's first question at tonight's debate - "So is Mrs. Clinton going to resign? Or will you be replacing her directly with someone more qualified?"
seriously, I am so sick of being lied to by this bunch. What the heck is going on? The Clintons are up to something. Hope they drop some info on Obama soon. This make him look even worse. Still waiting to hear who sent Susan Rice out to lie....crickets
It doesn't change anything in my mind anyway, that she's taking the fall for this. 1) I don't buy it anyway, 2) saying the pres and vp knew nothing on this huge foreign policy debacle, an uprising months ago by the way they took credit in helping, makes them incompetent, at the very least.
Pres doesn't go to security briefings, golfs like he lives at a retirement village, campaigns, parties in Hollywood, and goes on every little talk and gossip show and no hard hitting news interviews. And we're supposed to lay this at Hillary's feet?! I don't trust her either, but HE IS PRESIDENT! Man up and stop hiding behind the girl!!
Why isn't she relieved of her duties immediately? She is responsible for the deaths of four Americans. And the balls of her to make this admission on foreign soil is insulting to me as an American. Its reminiscent of 0 going overseas and bashing us as being evil few years ago. These people have got to go, we need to win all three branches of gov't and string these bastards up by the end of 2013.
When Romney is elected and the thousand lawsuits start to flow, we need to stand up and tell the black c*** and the bs Democrats "No more!" The racists, sexual perverts, whores and their white liberal butt boys are threatening riots if Romney is elected. We need to turn that into a promise. Not Obama dumb **** promise, but a real one.
I'd say that midnight, Nov. 6 is good time to take off the gloves, light 'em up and get this crap taken care of.
This is the same set of lunkheads that have the gall to say that the Republicans have politicized this issue? Wow...Hilary is the Scapegoat...that's really a surprise. I wouldn't have guessed that the night before the second debate that she would be so "bold" as to take responsibility. Heaven knows if we held our breath for the Imposter to do so, we'd all die and there would be no one left to steal a vote from. Wait a minute...I retract that last statement...it's well known that Elvis has been able to vote since dying in 1977! The real kicker is that Hil still expects to run in 2016...that's supposed to be her year. That should be really difficult from prison where the Clintons and Odumbo belong.
Bill and Hillary Clinton--Welcome to Obamaho! There's plenty of room in the stable for a couple of old wart hogs like you 'uns. Hope you enjoy your stay.
Oh and you can check in anytime you want, but you can never leave...
Oh is that what it is? Fog of war. Really? Do Democrats have payed writers to come up with these excuses?
This is meaningless. If the State Department knew on the evening of 9/11 that the attack in Libya was NOT as a result of the video, then why did the administration keep pushing this story? Susan Rice lied on five shows five days AFTER the attack. Are you telling me that for five days the administration STILL did not know what was going on? And even though everybody in the press and in Congress was saying that this was a terrorist attack a day or two after the attack, the White House STILL didn't know what was going on? Obama even kept pushing this story days later at the United Nations, on The View, and on David Letterman. If by that point Obama's own National Security Council still didn't know what was going on, a LOT of people should be fired right now. This is so phony. The White House must have known a day after the attack in Libya that the video had nothing to do with it and it certainly must have known by the time Obama went to the UN. This is a lame attempt to change the subject just before an election. Pitiful.
Look at this logically...If Hillary is taking responsibility for Benghazi, that basically means the buck stops with her. So what exactly is Obama good for? What's the point of the President then? This is HIS bloody Administration! Its under HIS surname!
A leader is supposed to be responsible and accountable. Demonstrating no leadership seems like a common theme with the political left. They only want power, popularity, and turning the world to their utopian view...But when it actually comes to being a real leader, there is none to be found. Manipulations, deceptions, lies, taking credit for other people's work, insincere gestures to the parents of the dead, character assassination because they don't have a record to run on, Big Bird, etc.
The fight between Hillary and Obama will "restart" after the debate, as he will have more flexibility.......
If this is Hillary's fault then she should resign in shame! Those dead American's asked repeatedly for more security in a well known terrorist hotbed of activity and all they heard were crickets! Heads need to roll on Benghazi-Gate and Fast and Furious but I know one thing for certain. Neither one of the Affirmative Action Twins (Obama/Holder) will be blamed for any wrong-doing. They are above the law and they know it!
Hillary falls on hew dagger. Meanwhile, let's all remember how much Bill Clinton loves to upstage Obama. This just gets weirder and weirder.
On Drudge " Hilary in 2008, The Buck stops at the Oval Office"
I guess times have changed huh Hilary? Obama plays by his own rules.
Quote- "Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) says the State Department is sitting on $2.2 billion that should be spent on upgrading security at U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide, but the Obama administration will not spend the funds." unquote
The intentional decision to not ensure / to not allow Marines to be armed, let alone not beef up security on the US Libyan Consulate Embassy in Benghazi Libya, which by the way is Hillary Clinton's primary job as Sec of State, US Embassies fall directly under her jurisdiction and responsibility- is an intentional willful dereliction of duty, that can only be seen as a betrayal of US National Diplomatic security needs, thus criminal, even treasonous acts against American lives, and interests vital to US National Security.
The evidence is clear and incontrovertible. All the evidence points to the 911 anniversary coordinated attacks were professionally planned ahead of time, then executed.. was thus not a spontaneous reaction.. Both Obama and Hillary Clinton had US Military, National Security Agencies, CIA, and even foreign govts intelligence warnings of serious threats of danger, especially on the anniversary of Sept 11th, which all pointed a heightened need of security.
Hillary Clinton- The State Department, and President Obama, had received a direct plea by Ambassador Stevens himself, requesting Security for fear of his life, but she, and Obama both ignored it, and in fact refused it, denied security, as well as a State dept Transport aircraft in case of emergency, in light of all the evidence of danger that was coming there way.
The evidence is overwhelming against both Obama and Hillary Clinton and both should not only be verbally held responsible, but they should be physically be held responsible, ie; impeached, charged, and tried for deliberate intentional dereliction of duty, which is not only a political offense, it's a criminal offense.
Motivation- Obama's Pro arab islamic muslim agenda policy to re-organize and establish the entire Middle East under complete Islamic Muslim Fundamentalist authority and control- ie; the destruction of the State of Israel. Quote- Caroline Glick : "Since taking office, Obama has made clear that he views the US as an imperialist power on the world stage. As a result, the overarching goal of Obama’s foreign policy has been to end US global hegemony." unquote
That shows once and for all that these people are dangerous to the common defense of America and her citizens... "And They Are" Also if for one moment she was keeping the so called president in the dark - a President would have her resign effective immediately... This president Barack Hussein Obama and his chosen people are so blatantly corrupt that it makes me sick knowing that Congress does it's little side show about gun walking and so on and on and wouldn't ya know it - no one that should pay the price is paying the price for all this corruption and death of Americans from Border Guards to Ambassadors....
We need to set these politically corrupt - dangerous socialists back 250 years.... And never allow this type of corrupt administration to rear it's sick ugly dangerous head ever again in the United States of America.... I am so sick of these people that I can't put it into words....
Romney verbally knock out Barack Hussein Obama for a second time in round two.... And we Constitutional Conservative Republicans Tea Party Folks will knock him out for good on 11.6.2012......
She carefully crafts her comments, she takes responsibility over the many offices and
people in the state department, however, doesn't take personal responsibility for the
lack of security. She also doesn't state why she lied (that will never happen) when
stating the attacks were because of a youtube video which Lamb disputed in her testimony to Issa. She doesn't say why Susan Rice lied, however, Hillary isn't Rice's boss, Obama
is. Her position is an appointed one (by Obama).
BTW, Col. David Hunt stated: "When an embassy requests more security the request automatically goes to the National Security Adviser and Council and appears on the President's daily national security briefing."
Another aside....I read that Eric Boswell, Assistant Sec. of State for Diplomatic Security,
sent cables to Washington (where? was not stated) in March and July 2012 requesting
more security and received no response.
Fast and Furious, Benghazigate, foreign donor gate, solandra green crony gate, Black Panther Voter intimidation gate, illegal Libya war, etc. etc. Media Obots turns a blind eye to all the aforementioned scandals to protect their Messiah while the Nation goes into a death spiral of debt, high energy costs and economic decline.
Figured they were going to play it that way. The only thing is that the intelligent people, not his sheeple, already know he's to blame.
BHO: It's Bush's fault. It's the video's fault. It's Hillary 's fault. I'm clueless but I sure sound good with a TelePrompTer in front of me.
She doesn't get the right to take the blame. If the ship runs aground, the cook keeps cooking and the Captain walks the plank.
Isn't she just an accomplice to OBOZO, you know the big meeting thing?
ROCCO11, that is just pocket change for this witch.
She has a line of credit with the FED for endless money, called QE3.
Heck, oh-uh-oh had billions lyiing around left over from the "stimulous slush fund thingy.
I say she tell Congress under oath who told RICE to lie.
I really don't know what to make of this.
Part of me thinks here is Mrs Clinton taking one for the team cause she's retiring this year.
Another Part of me is, Clinton did this to hurt Obama. Now you'll get the Clinton Democrats who already had a dislike of Obama, to think he forced her to jump in front of the bus.
Of course Hillary could also give off a sense of leadership that Obama doesn't have and basically give off the impression it's the Cabinet Secretaries that have been running the show, and Obama is too busy to do his job.
