Obama Throws Hillary Under The Bus – Clintons Furious

It appears that Barack Obama is ready to let Secretary of State Clinton take the fall for the failure in security in Benghazi. During the vice-presidential debate on Thursday it became clear that is what the agenda was.

There is no doubt that is part of her responsibility in that role....

It seems that there is a legitimate reason for the Obama administration to throw Clinton under the bus on this one and it seems that everyone is on board with it, including Vice President Joe Biden....

I've seen some pretty odd links here and there on Mudcat's page too. Should I judge Mudcat by those links?

meself - No, you didn't. ;-) And it IS a stupid expression. Stupid, stupid, stupid! It's as stupid as putting the suffix "gate" at the end of every new controversy. It's as moronic as saying that someone is going to "kick ass". I'm sick of hearing that someone has "thrown" someone else "under the bus". It's an idiotic expression that our mass media have turned into a cliche in order to save themselves the trouble of writing some original prose. They must think they have an audience of idiots, I suppose. Maybe they're right...or maybe they've made it that way.

So, what are your politics, Greg F.? I don't think I've read any of your posts. Are you a partisan? Do you support the Democratic fascists or the Republican fascists? Obama just created a new executive order to give himself the power to seize any American's bank account. Do you have the guts to critize Obama, knowing that now? The E.O. won't be rescinded by Romney, either, so will you have the guts to criticize Romney if he's elected, knowing he can take all your money?

I'm not so sure Hillary is 'dead' behind all this, but the Obama administration has done itself no favours in blaming your State Department. I agree that if the Clinton Democrats get teed off enough, that Obama has just lost a LOT of votes, and would probably lose the election, as I also commented on the Biden thread.
The Obama administration is indeed in dire straights if the public perceives them as a bunch of deceitful liars.I think it would be wise for his supporters demand that he and Biden be honest.
I'm not a Romney supporter but really people, how does anyone rally behind such nonsensical foolishness and still wish to be taken seriously?
Obama already has an uphill battle to fight in explaining all his broken promises, does he not? and the Republicans are going to use it against him relentlessly and get away with it!!

Damn. Getting an error message on the Jabba the Hutt photo now. Here it is from somewhere else. Hillary was having a high old time blaming some CIA business on al Qeada (wink wink):

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/hillary-aq-e1348724134973.jpg

And while searching for that image I found another one that's pretty spooky:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Jzf-pguZn_4/T1lJIOrwrxI/AAAAAAAAAC4/oPJNHSqRyi8/s1600/Hillary+winking.jpg

What is it with her and that wink? Hideous.

At any rate, it was Clinton's job to make sure the ambassador was safe. She failed. She needs to fall on her sword (the Romans made that one up, I believe, but not the one about the bus). Clinton needs to resign. Holder needs to resign for Fast and Furious. Obama needs to resign for just being. This is a failed administration, and the failure will pave the way for even more of the austerity that Obama promised us. He delivered, but people seem to have confused the word "austerity" with "prosperity." And now it's time for the A-team to take to the field. Romney and Dick Cheney and Rumsfeld--those boys will know how to give you REAL austerity. You accepted a little bit under Obama, so now it's time for the full dose. You see how they work that? It's the same team, just offense and defense.

Songwronger would be at the top of my list of folks to filter. I'm sure it would be mutual - he can't stand it when people dismiss his idiocy.

I've always said, taking the Clintons into his administration was President Obama's biggest mistake.....he may have presumed that it was safer to have them working within than plotting outside, but he underestimated Hill n' Bill. They are driven politicians, their ambition knows no bounds and their ego's took a hammering when Hillary failed in her bid for the Democratic nomination.

They will never forgive Pres Obama for thwarting their ambitions.

The Libya Embassy shambles had all the grubby fingermarks of Clinton dirty work.....looks like the President has at last wakened to the danger within.......too late I fear.

You have an argument with someone, TIA, but I don't think it's me. Those links sound pretty hilarious, allright. As for the website, I haven't seen it, so I can't say for sure, but the link titles you posted don't give me much confidence.

What does puzzle me about a lot of people here, though, is this: they NOTICE whenever Songwronger criticizes Obama. They seemingly do NOT notice when Songwronger criticizes Romney...Bush...or the Republicans! They neither notice nor comment. It goes right by them like it was invisible. And Songwronger DOES criticize Romney, Bush, and the Republicans. Very much so. Songwronger voted for Obama in 2008, for heaven's sake!

So why do they not notice when Songwronger attacks the Right? Selective blindness? Or would it just be inconvenient, because they could not then pigeonhole Songwronger as a stereotypical "Rightwinger", thus sparing themselves of the effort of actually paying any real attention to anything he says?

This is mental laziness, people. Or it's letting a personal feud overcome your ability to be fair and rational. Or both.

That's exactly what I'm saying, Ake...Bill Clinton is pinchhitting for the Democrats, and at the moment that means helping Obama beat Romney. It doesn't mean helping Obama forever, needless to say. I think Hillary may still have ambitions to become president.

BillD - Yeah, I guess you must've been stoned on those occasions. ;-) I could go back through a lot of Songwronger's posts and block and past a whole bunch of times he's criticized the Right...the question is, is it worth my time to do so? ;-D Probably wouldn't change anything anyway. But it would be fun to make you aware of the times you've been stoned and missed what he said.

What it amounts to is this: a lot of people here only react when their own ox is being gored. Or when they're ganging up together to merrily stone a despised heretic or outsider and congratulate each other for doing so. Other than that, they're asleep most of the time.

Personally, I think the participants in mudcat BS do pretty well, considering the different nationalities, differences in humour and culture etc.

The only problem is politics, we are extremely fucked up, most of us have not a clue what we really believe in, or the values of alternative opinions.

This is really a forum for disgruntled liberals, who are old enough to know that society is disintegrating, but too young to accept that there is no Father Christmas?

There seem to be a lot of posts here from people saying they won't deign to comment. Pretty humorous.

I am middle of the road. I like FDR's programs. Obama is gutting them. He's wrecking the FDR and LBJ safety nets. Obamacare is gutting Social Security. This is also what the Republicans want to do. Obamacare is based on Romneycare.

Show me the difference between the candidates.

I find that liberals tend to be closet fascists. Conservative/Republicans are more of the old Mussolini type (fusion of government and corporations), but liberals want that same type of control, only in the hands of a huge governmental bureaucracy. At the end of the day, what does it matter whether Bain Capital or Washington DC, Inc., is taking away your Social Security?

Liberals are control freaks. They want to regulate everything. Conservatives want to be left alone, but in the process of trying to achieve "less government" they let the robber barons achieve ascendancy.

So it's damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I hate Obama, true, but how could I like Cheney and Rumsfeld? In July of 2001 they changed the 50-year-old protocol for NORAD intercepts. Couple of months later NORAD stood down on 9/11. Afterward Cheney and Rumsfeld re-set to the old protocols. They were in the key control positions on 9/11, not by accident, but by design. They are mass murderers and traitors. But Obama's even worse, because he's allowing those monsters to still roam free.

If you support Dems over Reps, or Reps over Dems, you are a chump.

TIA is correct in going after the "classless and free" here who retreat into their shells, much the way the ordinary Germans did in the face of the brownshirts...

We have a certain segment of the population who are intent on making America fail so they use the same tactics that were used in Germany in the 30s but...

...rather than stand up and be counted they sit on the sidelines and play nice...

Problem is that what we are seeing is neo-facisism in the form of the current right wing in America and other countries and these "classless and free" don't see that one day they will come for them...

Um-hmmm... the conservatives only want to regulate 'some' things...like women's bodies, who gets the best tax breaks, who gets to vote, who gets to sell guns, who we go to war with, and a few other minor things.

When we see what happens in Wall Street (and such) with little regulation, strange things happen.

Bobert, I'm seeing neo-fascism coming from both your major parties. Their rhetoric is quite different. They pretend to be different...and most of their members in the public DO subscribe to 2 rather different philosophies, not doubt about that....Republicans tend to believe in smaller government, privatization, ultra-patriotic raving about "defending" America (which ends up translating to attacking foreigners)...while Democrats tend to believe in social services done through government and do not indulge in the ultra-patriot ravings to nearly the same extent...etc...and then are there the religious issues and so on...

but that's the membership!

It does not compute to what happens when either of those 2 parties gets power. What happens when either of them gets power is neo-fascism. Both Bush and Obama have made incredible assaults on your Constitutional rights and freedoms in the last 12 years and are involving the USA in fascist wars abroad, and are doing things that benefit the richest elements of the private sector.

What the parties supposedly stand for is not what you get when they're elected. You get neo-fascism when either of them is elected. This tells me that the campaigns are nothing more than a false propaganda exercise to tell you unfortunate people whatever you want to here...then once they are elected, they do what they were going to do anyway.

The Republicans sound more like neo-fascists because that appeals to the people who vote for them, that's all. Once in office, though, the Democrats turn out to be more of the same thing.

It's horrifying, frankly. I honestly feel like I'm living next door to an incipient fascist dictatorship that is merely going through the outward motions of pretending to have a democracy, in order to keep its own people cooperative to a manageable extent. So far it's working, just like it always has. The Great Oz is still safely concealed behind the curtain.

Like I said, you guys only notice when Songwronger posts stuff you don't agree with.

The trouble with your input LH is that it fails to take into account the fact that US voters have only two choices. Following your philosophy is likely to lead to a defeatist attitude that there's no point in voting at all.

Then you get the worst of all possible worlds.

There are obvious differences, which need to be emphasised, between the two parties.

The Republican Party has abdicated any right to govern in its current form, by acting as a roadblock to any initiatives of the Obama administration, to the detriment of the nation.

Unless you can show evidence of the Democrat Party ever having done that for the whole term of a Republican Presidency, your claim that there is no difference is wrong.

Songwronger's input is worse, since he simply lashes out mindlessly in all directions. A true basket case.

Is nothing short of one of the most eloquently stated posts regarding what has been going on, in regards to the façade of American politics that I've ever read on here!
Consistent with other posters, Songwronger, pdq, Sanity, some of Sawzaw's among others, who have maintained that the American public has been massively manipulated AWAY from the true faces behind the curtain of illusion and delusion, by those who have hijacked freedoms from your citizenry and most of the rest of the world, while heaping control and wealth for themselves.
You and those I've mentioned above (along with a few others) have an insight of the cutting edge of truth unrivalled by the deluded detractors!

It has now broken in the news (NYT) that this administration has been arming the Muslim Brotherhood, with the American taxpayers money. Why this is going on I can't exactly say, only speculate, but it's true.
This amounts to an undeclared war similar to what America did during the 1980's in Central America.

But that is another subject. Regardless, Little Hawk, your comments in your post are dead spot on, and brilliantly stated!!
Why others cannot plainly see this is evidence on how successfully the 'Wizards' behind the curtain have been in deceiving and deluding your two parties, and their constituents, tearing America apart at the seams!
Unless Americans get a clue and grip on this, will they be able to do anything about it, and have to be at the mercy of the true villains, and stop needlessly attacking each other!!

Kudos, hats off, and Bravo!!!!!

The haters have one thing in common: they hate a black man in the "Whites Only House" and the fact that he is both intelligent and articulate really pisses them off...

But never mind that for a second... If the Obama-hatin' Republicans use their race baiting tactics and get into power with them guess what???

New Deal??? It's gone... It will be replaced with the Somalia-AynRand-Bad Deal... That's why we liberals and progressives are defending Obama... We have to weather this all out assaul by the ultra-right on the New Deal... If we are bale to turn that back then we liberals and progressives can turn our attention on Obama...

Reality is that if there was a mechanism to would void the ballots of of racists then the Republican party would become extinct...

This goes back to the Southern Strategy that the Republicans perfected after the Civil Rights Act... Lyndon Johnson even stated that in pushing the Civil Rights Act his Democratic Party would be hurt in the the South for decades...

It just suits your emotional needs to label him as a racist, TIA. It's a standard reaction. The mere fact that Obama IS half-black means that anyone who criticizes him will be labelled a "racist" by a large number of people, regardless of whether or not they really are. It's kind of like being labelled "anti-semitic" by a certain crowd if you criticize Israeli policy....inevitable!

Being accused of being a witch in Salem...worked exactly the same way, and if so accused there was no way on Earth of proving one's innocence. The mere accusation itself serves as judge, jury, and executioner....and it makes the accuser feel like he's "saving the world" for the righteous too! Very satisfying.

Yeah, Henry is often just trying to shit disturb, stir the pot, I know that. It's obvious. But that's not the point I was focusing on...after all, it is so obvious, why bother?

The point I was focusing on was the old knee-jerk that is so common here, which is: "attack the guy who criticizes Obama and call him a 'racist'". It's that automatic reflex that so many here indulge in that I was focusing on, because they do it without even thinking. It happens automatically, like Pavlov's dog salivating when he hears the bell. That's why I commented on it.

It's the things that pass under people's radar here (their own behaviour, in other words) I would rather comment on than something as obvious as the fact that Henry Krinkle enjoys pulling people's chains and getting a reaction from them.

You BET there's racist prejudice against Muslims here in Canada...and elsewhere...these days. And I've often spoken out against it.

Henry calls Obama "al-Obama" in order to upset various people here...and because he doesn't like Obama's policies and performance in the presidency. I very much doubt that he does so because Obama happens to be half-black. That's just my opinion, mind you, but I don't think he has any racial motivations for criticing Obama.

He thinks Obama is a CIA-trained person whose ascendancy to the US presidency was planned in the works for a long time. He may be right. It's an interesting theory. I have no final opinion about it.

Sorry LH. I just lost a lot of respect for you. What exactly is "al-Obama" if not racist. I suggest that all people should develop a knee jerk reaction against racism. Apologists for it such as you (again sorry, but there it is) just encourage it.

BTW, if I knew your ethnicity, I bet I could make up a nickname that would make your knees jerk.

Shall we play that asinine game?

But after a long run and contemplation, perhaps I spoke in haste.
I apologize. With your help, perhaps I can use this as a learning experience.
I invite Henry Krinkle or Little Hawk to explain to me the meaning of, and reason for using, the moniker "al-Obama" so that I will appreciate it rather than being overly sensitive.
