Hillary on the ropes

Discussion in 'Politics' started by CaptainObvious, May 11, 2013.

  1. "The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa'ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya. These noted that, since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador's convoy. We cannot rule out the individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also contributing to the efficacy of the attacks."

    But Nuland wrote that the lines "could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either?

    This one paragragh buries her. It's obvious the State Dept. went into full cover mode when this happened. It was their job to connect the dots and they didn't. Hillary was too busy Jet Settting and building her resume' for 2016. One attack after another was happening. Libya was in total chaos. Help was asked for time and again. All ignored. This is the root cause of the cover up.
    Clinton paniced. She knew this could destroy her chances in 2016, so she and her team started the spin process. Obama also knew he was in deep shit with only eight weeks to the election. Why were they so paniced? Because for years and years the left had been hammering the Bush administration for missing all the obvious elements leading up to 9/11. Now here we have the current administration guilty of the very same thing. Much smaller scale, but that's not the point. There were signs for everyone to see and they ignored them. The gross incompetence was and is startling. They knew the beating they would take,(the paragragh eliminated from the report states as much), so they made up a story on the fly. It fell apart quickly, but they had a media willing to play along in order to save the election, which brings us to yesterday.
    The press conference was a disaster. You could see it on their faces. They, the MSM, had been played for chumps and they knew it. Other than a few of the Baghdad Bob types you'll see on MSNBC, the rest of the media is in a position where they cannot continue to defend this adminstration without looking like complete fools. They don't mind being labeled partisian, but they don't like being made to look like fools in the process. They don't like being used to this degree and they especially don't like it when everything that FOX News has been saying is suddenly proven correct in one fell swoop. They also know this whole cover up started with Clinton. She's one document away from being exposed as a complete fraud. Other e-mail exchanges are out there. When they come out...it ain't gonna' be pretty.
  2. Clinton panicked.....the spin process. Obama also knew he was in deep shit with only eight weeks to the election.

    The news media has always been favorable to Clinton and Obama. I opine they could have handled this differently without any bad press yet they chose not to. You think Clinton and Obama are afraid of the press?

    Now with this being said. What were they afraid of? They don't trust the press? These two exhibit the classic signs of paranoia, Trust no one. They could and possibly, might or have: Assassinate in a literal sense anyone with whom they feel threatened. Or move people around without consquence.

  3. I think both Obama and Clinton, especially Clinton, know they have went a bridge too far playing the press with Benghazi. Lot's a people are pissed off.
    Could they have handled if better? Easily, but when you're as self absorbed as they are, mistakes can be made. They think in polictical terms only and what any event can do to them as individuals, especially Clinton. She jumped the gun with some bullshit story trying to get ahead of it, but it was not well thought out. Panic set in and her only play was to make it as convoluted as possible, and she had that going for her until Friday when it became painfully obvious that the State Department, headed by her, was playing politics from the get go. Now EVERYONE, including the MSM and many on the left, understand why she had no interest in any real investigation into this matter.

    I just hope they burry Obama and Clinton in the same grave. They deserve it.

    Her "what difference does it make" testimony may go down in history along with "I did not have sexual relations with that woman".
  6. Exactly, and we will now see it become what the definition of is, is? Not doubt the Clinton war room, headed by no other than Bill himself, are having all the spin doctors they can muster come up with something.
    Their problem is, the left has already demonstrated that given a choice between the black guy and the woman, the woman goes under the bus. I fully expect we are about to see a civil war break out within the dem party. Neither Obama or Clinton are going down without trashing the other at the end of all this.

    I suddenly feel like...popcorn and a beer. :)
  8. If you can stomach watching a couple of Baghdad Bob's, this guest on Hardball last night ripped these two nitwits a new one. Get's heated about half way through when she won't by the kool-aid.Forgive the commercial

    Hillary might lose 26-30 votes in 2016 over Benghazi from those who would have otherwise voted for her. I am guessing it will be on the high side around 30 votes lost. There's no malfeasance there.

    Stop soiling your shorts over the prospect of another 8 years of a Dem in the White House. After all, it could be a hell of a lot worse,
    such as a leading Republican female in the White House like Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, or Marco the Cuban fag Rubio.
  10. It won't matter their supporters have such deficient attention span that none of them will remember anything about benghazi, except perhaps that mean ol republicans made them look bad .

    obama could be caught on live TV beheading the ambassador with a can opener and he'd be safe.

    By the time it comes for hillary in 2016 benghazi will be a feather in her cap. Her failure to get a facelift will hurt her more than benghazi.
