Apparently 3am phone calls to the White House are forwarded to Hillary’s cell. I don’t think hiding behind Hillary’s skirt is going to help the jackass out of this one. The tweets are pretty funny:
Arguendo: Hillary doing this give Mitt Romney a chance to chop off Obama’s head and kick it around like a soccer ball.
Somehow I don’t think Hillary taking fall makes obama look particularly presidential. It’s almost like a cowardly #WaronWomen. #Benghazi
Hi @BarackObama you came into office Blaming Bush and now you will leave office Blaming Hillary. A sad legacy of a POTUS who couldn’t lead
Hillary didn’t put Amb. Rice on 5 Sunday shows or instruct Carney to flog video. Obama still owns the cover up
Clinton’s announcement opens up several lines of attack for Romney to pursue at the debate tomorrow night, especially UN Amb Rice’s assertion that the White House “knew” the Benghazi attack was prompted by the stupid video. State has been clear that they told the WH within the first 24 hours that the attack had nothing whatsoever to do with the video. Clinton’s taking the blame for security failures in no way explains the political ass covering that the admin frantically tried to do in the week following 9/11/12. Hillary may own a tragic mistake, but obama owns a corrupt coverup.
Some Clinton fans may be angry and/or disappointed by Hil’s statements this evening. I’m counseling patience. At least until tomorrow night. After the debate we may see that Hillary is a crafty ole gal after all. Or as Jennifer Rubin on Twitter, said (I paraphrase),
“If Hillary had been Vice President, she would have won the debate, not lost women voters to Romney, and she would not now be able to set obama up to fail on Libya … Revenge is a dish best served cold.”
