Someone Has Finally Thrown Hillary Clinton Under The Bus And His Name Is Barack Obama

Consider this a follow-up the our previous post, Someone Has Finally Thrown Obama Under The Bus And Her Name Is Hillary Clinton. Looks like the White House and the Clinton’s are now at war. From The Daily Caller:

The White House is throwing Hillary Clinton under the 2012 election bus.

Top officials have already claimed the nation’s intelligence agencies did not alert the White House to the growing danger facing the State Department’s facility in Benghazi, Libya, which was destroyed Sept. 11 by a jihadi attack on the 11th anniversary of the atrocities in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

The claim was repeated Oct. 11 by Vice President Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate in Danville, Ky. “We weren’t told they wanted more security,” he announced.

Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser for communications, extended the claim Oct. 11 by telling told Foreign Policy magazine that neither Biden nor President Barack Obama knew of the growing danger.

“Biden speaks only for himself and the president and neither of them knew about the requests at the time,” Rhodes said, according to Foreign policy.

“These kinds of issues are handling in the State Department by security officials,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said during Friday’s press briefing.

Security matters “are decided at the State Department,” he said, amid tough questioning from Fox News Channel’s Ed Henry.

Via Doug Ross comes a link to an interview with Obama biographer Ed Klein detailing Hillary and Bill’s growing anger at Obama trying to pin the blame for Libya on her.

Sit back and enjoy the latest iteration of the Clinton/Obama dysfunctional relationship.

    Oh, how Hillary longs for the days of cheap blow jobs and cigars..! The fur is gonna fly pretty quick!!

    • LiberalNightmare

      That was not a cheap cigar.

        The Bhuddist Monks agree with this message!

  • Rdmurphy42

    When was the last time anyone saw bill campaigning for Obama?

    • Brucehenry

      Bill Clinton will be appearing with Bruce Springsteen at a pro-Obama event in Ohio this coming Thursday.

      • 914

        Ohio is irrelevant.. It’s over already. lol

        Barry is 10 points ahead so keep campaigning there while Benghazi burns! Lmao!!

        I do believe it’s called ‘leading from behind’ for good reason!!

    For your consideration:

    Barry is tossing the Hilldabeast under the bus because it really IS her fault.
    IIRC, the entire kinetic military action in Libya was in large part her brain-child. Could it be that she was so pleased with the outcome, so proud of herself, that she genuinely deluded herself into thinking that, thanks to her, Libya had been converted into a peaceful democracy where US diplomatic personnel were in no more danger than they are in Belgium? That a visible security “presence” (walls, razor wire, Marines) would somehow insult our new bestest buddies and undermine all of her good work?

    “Madame Secretary, Ambassador Stevens has sent another cable. He’s really worried about the security situation. He thinks al Qaeda is planning something.”

    “PFFT! He’s just an old worry-wart! The Libyans LOVE me… um… us for getting rid of Khaddafi. The same brave Libyan patriots who helped me… er… us overthrow the tyrant can certainly provide excellent protection from any troublemakers who happen to show up. Besides, it would be rude to send in a bunch of bloodthirsty Marine warmongers. Say, did I ever tell you about the time that I used the White House military aides as waiters?”

      The problem is that you can’t throw a cabinet secretary under the bus unless they are willing to go. Hilary is not. She will drag obama under there with her. If she knew anything about it then he did. The whole “it was the video’s fault” meme did not come solely from Hilary.

      obama owns this too and blaming Hilary only results in provoking a very dangerous insider. I’d rather step on a rattle snake.

    • LiberalNightmare

      With the Clintons, fault has nothing to do with it. The Clintons do not go under the bus. Ever.
      A little trip down memory lane.
      Whitewater
      Chinagate
      Paula Jones
      Monica Lewinsky

      The Clintons beat the rap on all of these and more. If Obama thinks that Hillary is going to take the rap hes in for rude surprise.

      • jim_m

        You know what the real difference is between the Clintons and obama? The press actually mentioned those scandals even if they defended the Clintons. The press won’t even mention obama scandals like Fast & Furious, the New Black Panthers, Pigford and others. The press is more in the tank for the dems than they were under Clinton.

        • herddog505

          As memory serves, MiniTru tried with might and main to bury Whitewater and the rest. Eventually, they couldn’t because even MiniTru can’t hide impeachment hearings. However, they did the next best thing, which was to demonize any of Slick’s accusers and critics.

        Nothing will happen until after the election. Bill and Hill will bide their time. The ever foolish electorate don’t really care about the horror and death of 4 Americans and a cover up at the highest level. Only the pocket book counts.

    • cabensg

      It’s true Hillery is responsible. She’s responsible for agreeing with Obama’s policies and carrying them out. I’m very happy to see her under the bus I’ll be even happier when Bill runs over Obama with his cadre of lawyers.

  • fustian24

    Some momentum is building here. The question is whether Obama will be backed into a corner before the election on this. If he is, I don’t see what play Obama has other than to attempt to throw Hillary under the bus.

    And I don’t think she’s going to willingly go. Her obvious response is to resign. She’ll crow about the coverup and that State told Obama everything all along and he’s been publicly lying.

    Obama’s move here to to blame Hillary for the whole mess and claim that she’s the liar attempting to cover her ass.

    And, unless Hillary has proof that Obama overrode her wishes to beef up Benghazi security (which I doubt is what happened), she is guilty, guilty, guilty of incredibly bad judgement to the point of being simply stupid.

    The dems have only two ways to deal with this that I can see. The first is to just brazen it out. Impossible for a Republican, but they managed to murder a few hundred Mexicans and not get press coverage. Not sure why they can’t do it for just one dead Ambassador.

    Their final move is to get some lower level functionary to take the fall in exchange for goodies later.

    • jim_m

      LOL. Yeah, it’s a great explanation that the President has lost control of his state dept and the Sec of state is running a rogue operation down in Foggy Bottom.

      Maybe now is a good time to bring up the fact that Russia just declared that they will withdraw from the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction program. This program to reduce nuclear weapons inventories has been renewed twice but under obama the Russians no longer perceive any threat from the US so they are willing to tell us to go to hell on defense issues.

      Heck of a reset barry! In just 4 years you managed to restart the cold war.

      He can throw Hilary under the bus (an action I understand is now called “underbussing”) but he won’t be able to run from his inept foreign policy.

    • fustian24

      If Romney chooses to, he could escalate this in the next debate by saying something like the following:

      “The American people want to know the truth here.You’re really going to stand here and try to tell us that no one from the intelligence community told you immediately that this was a terrorist attack and had nothing to do with any movie?”

      You had people in State watch it unfold. They knew in real time it was no protest. Yet you went out for weeks afterwards saying this was about a video.

      Were you so busy campaigning and golfing in Las Vegas that you were ignorant of what the intelligence community was telling you? Or did you stand up and simply lie to the American people for political advantage? Or are you saying that the State department lied to you? Is Hillary the problem?

      The American people want answers. You already have them, but you aren’t talking. Why?

      Was your administration incompetent or criminal?”

      That would make some news.

        When you regularly skip the daily intelligence briefing you tend to miss a LOT of information. Obama skipped the daily briefings from September 5th through September 12th. No wonder both he and Joe biden were unaware. Gross negligence.

        • cabensg

          It’s not unaware, it’s I don’t care. Even if Obama knew there was danger he would be sure his thinking on it was correct and would have done nothing. By the time Biden debated you better bet he knew all the facts and just lied. It is what he does best.

    • Aerostar700

      It is difficult to believe that the daily security briefings that Obama refused to attend did not contain much of this information. Obama’s actions in this matter are grossly negligent

  • Brian_R_Allen

    If the first AADD pretender to the “presidency” ever seriously takes on the treasonous, recidivist, lying, looting, thieving, mass-murdering, co-serial-rapist Cli’tons he’d better have all of his political-capital policies up to date. And he’d need to cash in every one of them — and would still have his clock cleaned.

    Between them the Cli’tons have quite overtly engaged in and/or perpetrated serial criminal activities and crimes that would one at a time and every one as a first offense have earned ordinary mortals an aggregate three to five hundred years in prison. And they walk free. Ol Snowflake there and his hangers-on, up at 1600 Pennsylvania, would have that snowflake’s chance in Hell of surviving an actual head-to-head with Billy-Bubbah and his Missus.

    Let’s pray and trust he has a crack at it!

  • 914

    Hillary’s got Barack’s ball’s locked tight in Her lock box. Will Billy stand by his man? Or will he sink Obama? Can hardly wait for Tuesday’s debate. haha

    • retired.military

      If Hillary gets bad press count on Bill to make one of his patented slips on nationwide tv.

  • Jwb10001

    Wow and here I thought Hillary worked for Obama? How can it be that he has no idea what’s going on, maybe he should have a cabinet meeting now and then.
    If he dares to throw Hillary under the bus he will lose the election in a land slide. Her supporters are not in love with Obama to begin with, shoving her under the bus will result in an electoral disaster. But you know the “Won” his ego is bigger than his brain so I suspect she’s headed under the bus.

    • 914

      He has a cabinet meeting in the golf cart before each hole. That’s where he gets his massive intelligence from too!

  • hybrid_golfer

    Susan Rice reports directly to Obama and she has a cabinet rank. Obama bears the responsibility.

    Obama is a coward. While I have never been fond of Hillary Clinton she has served this country with honor. Wonder how this will play out with Bill?????
