I do hear that President Obama will let Hillary Clinton tour a tire factory this week so she can at least match a dress to the tire tread, but one way or the other, Hillary Clinton is now going under the Obama bus.
Joe Biden began the effort to throw Hillary under the bus in the debate Thursday night. He said the White House never knew about additional security requests. With a town hall style Presidential debate tomorrow night, Barack Obama needed plausible deniability. Hillary Clinton gave it to him on CNN.
She said she took full responsibility for the unmitigated disaster that was the coverup of what happened in Libya to Ambassador Stevens and she took full responsibility for the failure to secure the Ambassador. In short, she’s falling on the sword to save Obama.
Except, doesn’t the buck stop with Barack Obama? That’s what Barack Obama said when attacking Mitt Romney over Bain Capital.
[A]s president of the United States, it’s pretty clear to me that I’m responsible for folks who are working in the federal government and you know, Harry Truman said the buck stops with you.
That’s what the President said back in July. In the same interview, he went on to say, “one of the things you learn is, you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations.”
But then again, often what this President practices and what he preaches are two different things.
