    Yes she was. Too bad Congress wasn’t ready with that 300million dollar request from the state department to improve security at consulates and embassies world wide….which still hasn’t been approved…but the blame game is fully underway.

    Yeah and the r/w are blaming President Obama. Typical.

    Errr… Yes, but… The thing is, in the end
    it’s always the President who gets the blame,
    and even more so in an election year. To
    deflect that blame he would have to pass
    “the buck” back to Hillary, which would be
    seen as very bad form. And then there are
    two different criticisms. Number one is about
    the security which may or may not be
    related to the gutting of State’s budget by
    Congress. The other one is the messing up
    of what actually happened that day (no mob,
    real terror attack). The President and all
    his people were a bit to cautious on this one,
    but declaring a successful terror-attack on
    9/11 would have been a major
    embarrassment, so I can understand their
    thinking. But that doesn’t help the fact that
    it happened. Can you remember the near
    state of panic on 9/11/02, 9/11/03 and so on?
    The U.S. has become complacent on this
    very date, despite it’s symbolism for their
    enemies…

    And she works for Obama, he’s her boss. Most people do what the boss tells them to do. Sure starting to get crowded under that bus. Only thing Obama has taken responsibility for is the offing of OBL, which any American would have given the go ahead for. No credit given for the 10 years of intelligence work that made it possible.

    Obama’s mantra is “The buck passes through here where I deduct a percentage to pass to others and let the agencies under me have the rest”.

    Interesting, But did not Biden tell us he was going on what the intelligence told him and Obama? That would mean it took Obama 2 weeks to read his daily security briefings. And of last night still has not filled Biden in on all that they had found out. At least that is what I understood from the laughing fool.
    But hey at least Obama made sure his green agenda was upheld.

    " Clinton been elected over Obama in 2008, the conservatives would have been ripping on her as much as they rip on Obama now."

    Are you saying Clinton would have stood in front of the UN and mentioned a YouTube Video 8 times? I think not.
    I can not stand either one but Clinton is more of a straight shooter and more subtle in her political maneuvers( which in reality makes her more dangerous). Obama is just doing what he has done since day one, blame someone else.

    @DrCanuck

    That was the beauty of the 08 campaign.
    There were only three ways it could end: a)
    a black president b) a female president or
    c) a president from the same party as GWB.
    Since c) could be safely ignored I had month
    of fun imagining the panic in the GOP. Even
    the movie “Game Change” doesn’t really give
    Sarah Palin enough credit. Morning after
    morning I would check out Keith and Rachel
    and the unbelievable things the She-Wolf had
    done the previous day. Ahh… Happy times…

    Bratwurst. And now? In other words: you are
    supposed to leave a comment. That was
    a drive-by…

    All the critics should experience an attack by mortars and RPGs in what is just A HOUSE! It was NOT an “embassy”, and LIbya is STILL a war zone. Errors made? Yup, but the staff knew the potential danger, and chose to be there. “Monday morning quarterbacking” is now only exposing more details of our security operations that SHOULD NOT BE MADE PUBLIC!

    Ms Hillary is trying to avoid the Ma Ferguson problem: Ma was the first woman governor of Texas, but really, her husband was very popular with the voters but he couldn’t run again, so she ran with the promise that voting for her was really voting for her husband. So she’s the first woman governor of Texas, but not the first ‘real’ woman governor of Texas (that was Ann).


    Had Ms Hillary been willing to settle for a more modest place in the history books, she could have been president by a landslide in 2000.


    She could get it in ‘16, but she’ll be rather long in the tooth by then.

    Oh, btw: the next day, on Sept 12, President Obama DID describe the attack as an act of terrorism, NOT the result of “demonstrations in the region”. He also promised to pursue and get the culprits; ask bin Laden if President Obama means what he says, and can “follow up”.
