There's no way Obama will "pull a Biden," but he's got to seem more aggressive, right?

Lots of "war on women," right? And now that Hillary's taken the fall for Benghazi, Obama can safely "take responsibility."

Uh I think he has to look alive and participating without being arrogant.

Biden really screwed up the women hated him.

Who you listening to?

I was watching Michelle and her brother on CNN - we are in the throes of a fabulous recovery and just can't afford to go backwards and blah blah blah blah and our girls are the best and blah blah blah and they are so unspoiled and normal and blah blah blah blah.

Would you believe it appears Hillary didn't take the fall for everything? Excerpted from salon.com (emphasis mine):

The precise meaning of Clinton’s words is a bit muddy. She seems to be weighing in specifically on the issue of why a regional security officer’s request for heightened embassy security before the assault wasn’t acted on. When Paul Ryan raised this at last week’s vice-presidential debate, Joe Biden insisted that “we weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there,” a claim that was greeted with considerable skepticism by Republicans and media members. But speaking with CNN from Lima, Peru, Clinton stated that:
  • “I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60,000-plus people all over the world (at) 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They’re the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision.”
She did not seem to be addressing the mixed signals that the administration sent in the days after the attacks about whether they were spontaneous and inspired by an anti-Islam YouTube video or a premeditated terrorist attack. That public confusion has prompted Republicans to latch on to the issue and convene congressional hearings, with some loudly claiming that the White House is engaged in some kind of coverup.

As I've watched this unfolding her participation in this is disgusting and disappointing - but then maybe not.
