You’d think that after 4 years someone in the Obama administration would shoulder some blame for something but no, the all-powerful Bush evidently destroyed everything for always since he’s blamed for so much.
Here, Hillary Clinton blames George W Bush for the Benghazi terrorist murders that happened under her watch in the 4th year of Obama’s presidency. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/01/30/On-Fox-News-Clinton-Blames-Bush-For-Lack-of-Funds-To-Secure-Benghazi Well it worked for Obama since he got reelected, right? Keep in mind that:
In October, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security Charlene Lamb testified that the size of the attack, and not the money, was the central issue. When asked, at that hearing, whether there was any budget consideration that led her not to increase the security force, Lamb responded, “No,” and added, “This was an unprecedented attack in size.”
In response to yet another question about budgetary issues, Lamb replied, “Sir, if it’s a volatile situation, we will move assets to cover that.”
I’ve never been SoS, but I’ve been middle management and I know that if you are underfunded as Hillary now claims, you do 3 things: 1] ask for more money, which she didn’t ask 2] transfer money from non-essential programs to essential programs, e.g., embassy security, which she didn’t transfer and 3] cut back on money waste, e. g., traveling a million miles for mostly social events, which she didn’t cut. Grabbing at straws now to blame someone else, that’s all this money excuse is.
Hillary then proceeded to compare the recent GOP Congressional questioning to the North African terrorists for refusing to compromise. Yes, the woman who claimed full responsibility for Benghazi is upset that anyone tried to find out what happened and who was responsible. Hillary’s learned a lot from Barack and Bill the last 4 years. http://washingtonexaminer.com/hillary-clinton-warns-gop-lawmakers-not-to-act-like-north-africa-terrorists/article/2519973
After Obama and his MSM touted a recovering economy during the presidential campaign, it turns out our GDP was worse than slow, worse than nonexistent, it was negative during the last 3 months of the campaign. How does it feel, America, to have slower economic growth than Cuba? http://sweetness-light.com/archive/ap-gdp-shows-surprising-drop-in-4th-quarter
The Dems and MSM came out and blamed the GOP, saying the defense cuts of sequester caused the shrinkage of the GDP and the GOP caused sequestration. The actual and expected defense cuts certainly didn’t help the economy but there’s no call to blame the GOP. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/01/obama-white-house-blames-hurricane-sandy-and-defense-sequester-for-shrinking-economy-sequester-was-team-os-idea/
The Hill reported:
“Our economy is facing a major headwinds, and that’s Republicans in Congress,” Carney said.
Of course, the sequester idea came from inside the Obama White House. The Politico reported, via GOP.com:
“In fact, the idea may have come in part from Obama’s current chief of staff, Jack Lew.” “In fact, the idea may have come in part from Obama’s current chief of staff, Jack Lew. The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward reported in his book ‘The Price of Politics’ that Lew, then-Office of Management and Budget director, and White House Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors broached the idea of a defense sequester as a threat to Republicans during negotiations over raising the debt ceiling.
Hey, tsunami, Sandy, GOP, sequestration, Bush…. as long as it’s not Obama’s fault, what difference does it make, eh Hillary?
Criminal scientist and climate expert Christie Hefner – who knew? everyone simply knew her as Hugh’s kid and the former head of Playboy Enterprises – says AGW is to blame for the high murder rate in Chicago. http://weaselzippers.us/2013/01/30/msnbc-chicago-murder-rate-blamed-on-wait-for-it-global-warming/ You look at Playboy, you get hot. No. You get hot, you kill people due to the weather. Or something like that.
Of course, Christie now represents the extreme lefty George Soros-funded AGW group Center for American Progress, so she’s just spouting their talking points phony stats. In addition to the monies Soros funded to start media groups like Center for American Progress and Van Jones’ Color for Change, he invested $100 Million in last year’s presidential and Congressional elections. Pretty good bang for the buck.
