The Blame Game

In an interview with NBC News, Hillary Clinton discouraged the current debate about who should be blamed for the security breach that led to the attacks in Benghazi.

"I really believe that tragedies like what happened in Benghazi should be viewed in a non-political way," Clinton continued. "Please don't blame me."  Actually she urged us to all pull together as Americans.

When asked if initial reports indicated that there had been an intelligence failure, Clinton said she didn't want to engage in a "Blame Game".

So what is this "Blame Game" that Hillary refers to?  A quick search of Google headlines reveals what this blame game is really all about:

Hillary Blames Bush for Economy
Hillary Blames Bush for North Korean Nukes
Hillary Blames Bush for Afghanistan Problems
Hillary Blames Bush for Katrina
Hillary Blames Bush for Closed Factory
Hillary Blames Bush for Blackout
Hillary Blames Nigeria's Leaders for Extremism
Hillary Blames Israel for Mid-East Woes
Hillary Blames Arafat for West Asia Violence
Hillary Blames US for Violence in Mexico
Hillary Blames Obama's Out of Control Spending on Bush
Hillary Blames Bad US Image on Pro-Wrestling
Hillary Blames Iranian Victims for Suffering Caused by Sanctions
Hillary Blames Speculators for High Gas Prices
Hillary Blames CO2 for Fires
Hillary Blames Baywatch for Poor Middle-Eastern Relations

And last but not least... Hillary Blames White house for False Statement on Libya Attack!

"What we want to do is get to the bottom of what happened, figure out what we're going to do to protect people and prevent it from happening again, and then track down whoever did it and bring them to justice...after we have safely secured the election," Clinton said.

You see, culpability is irrelevant when it's an election year and even more so when it is probable that you are at least partially to blame.

The Blame Game... so long as you don't blame me!

Cheers!

It's the cyclical nature of politics. An upside to Romney being elected will be that the narrative changes from one where everything is the POTUSs fault -to one where nothing in the POTUSs fault. This cycle repeats with every new Administration from an opposition party.

It's cheap theater.

Who the hell cares about HILLARY?

She ain't running for prexy right now.

Her Heinous has been reduced to playing Obama's Fall Guy -- from a three-thousand-dollar-a-night "luxury" hotel suite in PERU no less.

ROMNEY was EXCELLENT last night.

For God's sake let's cheer him on.

I thought Romney could have done better on the Bebghazi fiasco. I widh he had said that the American people want to know if the low profile security at our embassy in Libya was a policy of the President's because it is hard for the American people to understand how the professional security people in the State Department would not have wanted more security in such a dangerous part of the world on the anniversary of 9/11.

Who was LYING? That debate was a total and complete media scandal committed by a woman who promised to violate her position and to insert herself into the debate. She acted kike a shill for Obama.
Obama not only LIED but he had the help of despicable Candy Crowley that so called moderator who was absolutely disgraceful.
Crowley not only selected the questions, but she helped Obama with the UNTRUE answers. But the both got caught.Despite the fact that Romney had to debate 2 people instead of one, Romney cleaned Obama's clock all night.

Who was LYING? This is a scandal; a total and complete media scandal committed by a woman who promised to violate her contract and to insert herself into the debate. All she did for weeks was brag about how she intended to grab the spotlight -- and boy did she ever.
Obama not only LIED but he had the help of despicable Candy Crowley that so called moderator who was absolutely disgraceful.
Crowley not only selected the questions, but she helped Obama with the UNTRUE answers.
She helped the Liar-in Chief every step of the way.

The Progressive Liar as usual had nothing but LIES to write about in her blog this morning. Saying exactly the opposite from the truth again!

”President Obama clearly won the debate last night, keeping Willard on the defensive and correcting his blatant lies, with help from Candy Crowley's fact-checking. Willard didn't get away with fabrications and lies this time:
"Presidential debate moderator Candy Crowley fact checked Mitt Romney after the Republican presidential candidate charged that President Obama failed to call the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi an "act of terror."


Crowley said exactly the opposite of what happened in Benghazi right to Gov. Romeny when he tried to attack the Liar in Chief over his cop out on what he said for 2 weeks after the attack on Benghazi! Crowley mistakenly agreed with Obama's cooked up BS story that he referred to the Benghazi attacks as acts of terror on the day after the attack When he was clearly speaking of the September 11th 2002 attack. And Crowley backed up Obama's Lie.
In fact soon after the debate, Crowley admitted that she was WRONG, shortly after the debate Crowley said, Obama Never Said that the Benghazi Attack Was 'Act of Terror, and that he did say it was due to the video.
Crowley’s job as moderator set a new low in moderating Presidential debates. She lied and shilled for Obama. And it was a despicable!
Obama had the help of the moderator Candy Crowley, to back up his lies last night. Romney was and is correct but he had to debate both Obama and the Moderator who was quick to shut him down..
And the Progressives set a new low in LYING!

And the Poor Boy Barrack was offended! Yeah right, he was offended that he and his gang were caught in an outright lie and a cover-up that made Nixon look like a Boy Scout. He knowingly outright lied and blamed the video for the Sept. 11th attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi and the murders of 4 Americans for days if not weeks afterwards. Why? So that he could cover- up for his failing Middle East polies. And his stooge the Secretary of State, her Highness Hillary Clintoon to the blame for it, but noone ever believes anything she says anyway!.

To be fair, and clearer, it's a few bloggers using "the victim-hood line"

The Romney camp and the RNC are not.

New Threats to Riot if Obama Loses Election

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Agreed, I didn't mean to imply that the Romney camp had expressed that theme...but the theme surely exists with the whining over approved Moderators, the "liberal media", polling [when it doesn't show Romney in the lead], early voting.....

The GOP would regain much respect from me if they sacked up and acknowledged their fallibilities. I'm not blind however to the astronomical odds of that happening.

Candy better be careful. If Obama gets another term -no more twinkies for her. She will be harnessed to a treadmill.

No. It was the tingle coming back to to Chris Matthews' leg.

Keep dreaming, but the needle hasn't moved. Now put down the hopium bong and go to work.

Was Romney presenting his tax policy or a new script for Death of a Salesman?

He and Eddie Munster still haven't been specific about which deductions they'd eliminate.
Kiss the mortgage interest deduction goodby, Silver.

Mittens gets a 20% rate reduction and the 1%, who pay cash for their mansions lose their mortgage interest deduction.
Do the math, bro.

Silverfiddle said...

Ducky,
I have read the Princeton economist's evaluation of the Romney plan, and there are myriad ways to make it work, contrary to what the yapping left says (like they understand the mathematical analysis better than the man who did it. What a laugh)

The details will have to be negotiated with congress. A president can't just unilaterally declare all this, despite Obama's unprecedented imperial actions these past four years.

We need tax reform. Personally, I'm for wiping it all out and going with a simple consumption tax, with basic food staples exempted for those below the poverty line, for example.

The Views Of A Tea Party Member said...

Well here we are, only three weeks until the election. The end of the 0bama's tyranny is in sight!
And in regard to the debate last night (Tuesday) Obama didn’t win, don’t let those desperate Obamamaniacs fool you. If Obama gained ground, he did so because Romney blew past a couple of important facts while he had the opportunity and failed to capitalize on them. Obama has nothing to make this country better, period. And we all knew going into this debate that the inept Moderator Candy Crowley was in Obama's corner, and was going to give him all the help that she was able to. Candy acted as Obama's Teleprompter. But after all was said and done, Romney won the debate. 0bama made a lot of noise and kicked up dust, but he did not make any points. Intellectually, he was still an empty chair.
Obama is a small man with no character and a perverted ideology on how to run a country. His government was and always will be about Chicago crony politics, nothing more.

Well of course there are a myriad of ways to make "it" work, Silver.
And just what are the goals?

Income transfer to the top. Surely you've been paying attention for the last thirty years. It's screwed you badly enough.

skudrunner said...

View,

You need to respect the anointed one. Obama was very specific about what actions he was going to take to create jobs and make the country stronger.

He was going to create manufacturing jobs increasing regulations and pay for that expansion by taxing the rich and small business. I don't know what you expect from him because all he is asking for is another four years.

Ducky and stevie are going to march in line and your not.

Silverfiddle said...

"Income transfer to the top."

So exactly how does this "income transfer" work?

Are you seriously alleging this plan takes money from poor and middle class people and transfers it to rich people?

Obama played the "Blame Game" again last night.

Did anyone else notice that Romney was interrupted 28 times by Candy Crowley? And how she defended Obama regarding his comments regarding Libya? They both lied!! Today she apologized for her "misstatement."

It was two against one last night, and yet, Romney came out on top because he had the truth backing him up.

Obama was aggressive, rude and like Candy, continually interrupted Romney.

They chose a horrid moderator last night. We knew whose side she was on from the get go.

"I went to a number of women's groups and said, 'Can you help us find folks,' and they brought us whole binders full of women," Romney added.

Actually, I don't blame Bush for higher food prices.

A good part of that comes from the lifting of limits on futures speculating which happened under Clintoon.

The invisible hand does it again.

Oh look, moveon and thinkprogress are commenting on our blog.

Ever have an original thought?

Ducky's here said...

The share of wealth at the top is increasing much faster than the bottom deciles.

Now when GDP growth is decent this isn't a crusher but when GDP growth is 1% and 90% of that is going to a small group at the top, not good.

If you haven't realized this is happening I just don't know hat you are attending to.

Ducky's here said...

... so just keep pretending that tinkle down economics is working for you and we just need to give more to the "job creators"(LMFAO).

Silverfiddle said...

We have income inequality??????

NO!!!!

Now, back to the real world...

You haven't answered my question, Ducky.

How does Romney plan to transfer income from the poor and middle class to the rich?

How does that work?

I am STUNNED that anyone bother's to dignify Canardo's Marxian assertions and fatuous "questions" with a response.

He might as well object to water's inability to flow up hill, or the damnably persistent quotidian cycles that curse us with darkness at night, and the unspeakable audacity of rain to descend when we hang out the wash to dry, etc.

Come to think of it why do we need OXYGEN to survive?

It's not FAIR.

Someday we might run out of oxygen, and then we'd be in a fine fix, wouldn't we?

I guess we'd better start TAXING everyone on the amount of oxygen they use every day.

After all they're DEPLETING the supply of something ALL of us need EQUALLY, aren't they?

It's only right they PAY for THEIR FAIR SHARE of this vital commodity, isn't it?

In future everyone's use of oxygen will be METERED and MONITORED by The International Bureau of Breath and Death.

In the interests of promoting fairness by leveling the playing field the tax collected will go to the UN to help defray the costs of monitoring, keeping records and collecting taxes on each citizen, who, of course, shall not be determined on his NEED, but on his ABILITY to pay.

THE OLIGARCHS, however, who give us the right to live in order to serve their best interests, shall be EXEMPT from ALL taxation, because without their superior wisdom and invaluable intervention in human affairs, the Universe would, doubtless implode and disintegrate for lack of proper supervision-- wouldn't it, Ducks?

Hillary really is desperately unattractive, isn't she?

Frankly, she looks BETTER wen she's woebegone. When things go well from her demented point of view, she looks THREATENING.

Rational Nation USA said...

Could someone define "fair share" objectively for me. Heck, just define "fair" objectively. Somehow methinks it can't be done.

Of course the question is for those progressive statists out there that live in the world of subjective "fairness." The fairness determined by their own subjective bias and skewed judgement.

obama has tossed her under the bus and like a good liberal woman who knows her place, she won't fight back.

It really is obama's fault, but it's an election year, so the women will have to take another one for the team. I guess as long as they have the right to kill off their unborn baby girls liberal women will always be happy to do the bidding of their male masters.
