If Obama throws Hillary under the bus, he better know he is probably going to lose the election. Bubba won't help him the rest of the election. You don't double cross the Clintons, that much I know.

All of you folks saying Obambots will get him into office regardless are overlooking those folks on the fence. the independents will make or break this election. And many of those "independents" this time around were whole-heartedly for the guy last time. Even if they don't vote, that makes a difference.

Obama White House To Scapegoat Clinton State Department

Maybe it's the other way around.....

Hillary is no slouch ya know.

Rumor has it that she is making a new music video.

The 1st autographed copy is being sent to 1700 Pennsylvania Ave !!

Here is a preview of the lyrics:

"Marie Osmond - Who's Sorry Now"

Both Obama and Hillary are to blame.
Obama skipped his security briefings and obviously wasn't taking security seriously.
It's the State Depts job to keep diplomatic staff safe.

But I betchya Hillary is PISSED OFF. Watch out Obama .. the Clintons are MUCH better at this than you are.
All Bill Clinton has to do is say 'boo!' and you will be exposed for the inept clown that you are. I"m looking forward to the Clinton takedown of Obama ...

Let's talk conspiracy here.

Hillary saw what was happening and decided it was time to throw Obama under the bus. If she wants to run in 2016 - he has to go now. I also believe he has to go now, but that's neither here nor there.

She is supposedly in charge of what goes on at the State Department, but knows the failure in command can be blamed on the White House. She knows Obama pays little attention to his security briefings. Could that failure in command have been hers? Intentionally?

She seems so competent and innocent - don't forget Vince Foster.

Actually I can see this scenario playing out.

Will this be the October suprise we are all waiting for?

Important Timeline of Events:

June 6: Assailants blew a hole in the consulate’s north gate big enough for 40 men to get through.

July: “Innocence of Muslims” video posted on You Tube.

Aug. 14: SST team leaves Libya. Team leader Lt. Col. Andy Wood has testified that Stevens wanted them to stay on.

Sept. 8: The Libyan militia protecting the consulate warns U.S. diplomats that the security situation is “frightening.”

Sept. 10: Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri calls on Libyans to avenge the death of his Libyan deputy, Abu Yahya al Libi, killed in a June drone strike in Pakistan.

Sept. 11: "Protesters" converge on the U.S. embassy in Cairo, scale its walls and replace the U.S. flag with the Islamist banner. The protests eventually spread to 20 countries around the world.

Sept. 12: Media outlets report that Stevens and three other Americans have been killed in an attack by well-armed militants. Obama denounces an “outrageous and shocking attack” without mentioning the video or terrorism. Reuters reports for the first time that some administration officials believe the assault “bears the hallmarks of an organized attack.”

Sept. 13: White House spokesman Jay Carney says “the protests we’re seeing around the region are in reaction to this movie.”

Sept. 14: Carney says the administration had “no actionable intelligence” about a pending attack.

Sept. 16: Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the UN, does the rounds on the Sunday talk shows and says the video is the “proximate cause” of the assault in Benghazi. “Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous — not a premeditated — response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice tells ABC. That same day, interim Libyan president Mohamed Magarief insists on CBS that “it was planned, definitely.

Sept. 19: National Counterterrorism Center director Matthew Olsen testifies before the Senate Homeland Security Committee that the assault was a “terrorist attack” but goes on to call it an “opportunistic” attack in which armed militants took advantage of an ongoing "protest."

Sept. 20: CBS reports that witnesses in Benghazi say there was "no protest" prior to the armed assault against the consulate. Magarief tells NBC the same thing on Sept. 26. Also on Sept. 20, Obama at a town hall meeting says: “What we do know is that the "natural protests" that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests.” Carney declares it “self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.” Clinton, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter brief members of Congress. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) calls it “the most useless worthless briefing I have attended in a long time.”

Sept. 21: Clinton says “what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack,” highest official until then to say so.

Sept. 25: In his address to the U.N. General Assembly, Obama doesn’t mention terrorism but makes repeated references to the video. Asked about Clinton’s statement on ABC’s “The View” show, the president skirts the issue by saying: “We’re still doing an investigation,” blames “extremist militias.”

Sept. 27: Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says it’s “clear that there were terrorists who planned that attack.”

Oct. 1: State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says Clinton stands by Rice after House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Pete King (R-N.Y.) calls for her resignation.

Oct. 3: FBI investigators finally arrive at the crime scene in Benghazi, which has been unsecured for weeks.

Oct. 10: Lt. Col. Andy Wood and Eric Nordstrom testify at a House oversight committee hearing on security lapses in Libya. They say their requests for more security were denied by their superiors in Washington, testimony confirmed by cables made public by chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).

Oct. 11: During the vice presidential debate, Biden says, “We weren’t told they wanted more security there.” He also denies responsibility for the administration’s shifting explanation: “The intelligence community told us that. As they learned more facts about exactly what happened, they changed their assessment.”

I noted that your original pic was 320x320 pixels which is outside the avatar parameters.

I have resized both options to 170x240 pixels to accomodate - either of them will work - I have tried them myself.

The Obama Administration is playing “good cop-bad cop” with Hilary Clinton saying the buck stops with the State Department and she takes “full responsibility” for Benghazi.

[Hmmm, I’m scratching my head here]

And now the Obama Administration is considering a strike on Libya because of “Clinton’s failure” to secure Benghazi.

The SOS, Clinton, works for the POTUS. So, the buck stops with Obama, not Clinton. Like Hillary said in 2008, the buck stops with the President.

Here’s My Take:
They had to backtrack and eat their own words, because the Obama administration “huddled” and decided it was best to make sure everything they say matches up with the “time-line” of events from the Benghazi attack.

Of course he did! This COWARD blames everyone else for HIS failures!


I remain mystified that there are still people naive enough to support this complete and utter failure! Many are the same that crucified Bush for his policies and Obama's have been both more of the same with some new twists on destroying the Constitution. In the REAL world, we call them HYPOCRITES!!!

Perhaps if Obama would have attended to his job as PRESIDENT and attended security briefings as the tax-payers pay him to do, this could have been avoided. Sadly he was too busy partying with Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg and acting all celebrity-like that he forget to act all President-like!


Counting down the days until Odumbass is unemployed! Send this sucka back to community organizing!

A senior Obama campaign aide said Tuesday that President Barack Obama takes “absolute responsibility” for American diplomats serving abroad, a day after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was responsible for the security of the U.S. consulate in Libya that was attacked on Sept. 11.

Obama lied about calling the Benghazi Attack an Act of Terrorism on September 12th. He will have to spend the next few days and quite possible the next debate accounting for that.

BTW, the final debate will be on Foreign Policy.
