War on Women

Once in a while a political cartoon comes along that's just amazingly poignant. I feel this is one of those:


Also thinking that it seems Obama is waging his own little mini war on women with Hillary Clinton. First he plays the race card on her in 2008. Then calls the Clinton years in the White House a “psychodrama.” Obama then accepts the gift Bill begrudgingly bestows him at the DNC convention...and now, he has the audacity to throw Hillary under the bus for the debacle in Benghazi?! Sheesh.

Didn't sound to me like Hillary was being thrown under the bus. She was just stepping up and being an adult.

She was trying to direct the tires over her less than vital parts.

I'll give her more credit than I'll give him. She understands that the "buck stops here" when it comes to the State dept. He still hasn't figured out where the buck stops when it comes to anything in regards to the gov't. I'm glad there's at least one adult in the room of international politics. I just wish it was the CIC (but at least she's making all the "we'll just vote for him" wish they'd voted for her). Nothing like one-upping the chosen one for a nice cold revenge soup.

Nah, Sandra Fuh-luck is a REAL victim of the eeevvviiiillll Rethuglican WoW! Right, lefty boys?

I'm betting that she traded the blame for a nice fat seat at SCOTUS if the golden boy gets re-elected. If he doesn't then she's screwed...again.

No Hillary has talent. She can read the 'tea leaves' better than most.
She is now showing 'class' at the expense of the 'One.'
If Obama loses, she is heir to the 2016 nomination. If he wins she will seek other compensation.
If 'Adult' means that one is an opportunist, than by all means Hillary is an 'adult.'

As much as I dislike Hillary, I have to give her credit for being an extremely savy person. I think she has very good reasons for diving under the bus. I'm just not bright enough to spot them.
Whatever the real reason is, it IS NOT because of her sterling character.

The only reason she is accepting blame is because she knows Public Opinion has already judged Obummer in this.

She is guilty as fuck in this whole shit storm and she knows it. But somehow she has managed to play it in a way that makes it look like she is willingly taking the fall for the Inept Idiot running the White House.

Ive been telling you all for a long time: She IS THE FUCKING DEVIL.

Hillary is Satan Incarnate.

She will gouge your eyes out and eat them for a snack if she feels it will server her self interests.

In fairness Hillary is the department head where the problem happened. Is the President responsible. Well yes, he is because the buck stops with him. But more specifically Hillary is responsible, and I said from the start Obama should issue her a public, written reprimand. If an embassy were to be over run again, he should fire her... not let her resign but FIRE HER.

That is how the real world works, and I think Hillary is a big girl and can deal with that.

As for what she should be doing, the Marines at her embassies are not there for decoration, and we need to stop treated them like they are. The diplomatic security service is nice but they protect the people while the Marines protect the property. Both need to be empowered to do their jobs. If companies like Black Water or Triple Canopy need to be hired to fill a stop gap while troops and agents are trained, so be it. Its been done before quite a bit in places like Iraq and Afghanistan and those companies do that job very well.

Hillary has no interest in being appoint to the SCOTUS. She will only accept one thing..being sworn in as president in 2017.

When she is 107 years old...

free0352 said...

I mean, maybe she can talk black again, that wasn't awkward or anything...

Truth be told, while it is true the story is always 100% different after the first few days, its kinda dumb in this case because anyone with 2 brain cells could tell it wasn't about a movie. Come the hell on, right? I hope this is a lesson to the administration, and a painful one at that. My experience in the military with politicians is that nothing changes with them unless it beats them up in the polls, then the change comes like a whirl wind which you (the grunt) gets to reap. That said, I hope they empower the people to do their jobs, however my other experience under three presidents in the military is that they never do this because they don't trust people to do anything on their own... ever, and because of that micro management these sorts of things happen again when they could have been prevented. Think Pear Harbor, invasion of Korea, about 1000 things with Vietnam, 79' hostage crisis, Beruit bombing, Somalia, 9-11, Iraqi insurgency, and on, and on, and on. That of course doesn't count the POWs America left behind in Vietnam.

Hillary is to blame and her ass should be nailed to the wall. I don't respect her for taking responsibility. She didn't do her job and that cost good, brave Americans their lives. Since Obama is too big a pussy to fire her, she should resign in disgrace.

And I hate Obama. His instinct was not to blame Islamist terrorists, but an American and the first amendment. There cannot be enough shame heaped upon him and his minions for that. He's an appalling disgrace of a president and he has no business leading a free country.

"I'm the president, and Secretary Clinton works for me, and I'm responsible" -- President Barack Obama

Freemom said...

Truth be told, Hillary stepped up on Monday so Obama could make his "man up" speech in the debate on Tuesday. I thought the whole thing rather "transparent." Clearly Hillary had to think of it...she has had lots of experience learning how to cover for sleazy men who don't really know how to "man up"

Obama has something on Her and Bill or they would have dumped him in 08. it's the Chicago way.

Zelda said...

"I'm the president, and Secretary Clinton works for me, and I'm responsible"

Then do something, you giant pussy. Fire her. She failed in a completely unacceptable way. Then apologize to Americans instead of terrorists and quit blaming an American and some dumb movie the idiot Islamists didn't even know about. Then say you're going to keep killing terrorists as long as it takes, and actually do it.

There is a lot to think about in Anonymous's comment "Obama has something on Her and Bill or they would have dumped him in 08. it's the Chicago way".

That cartoon is just more political propaganda. Lies and more lies, clevery drawn to help a political agenda. Islamic extreemists do not use 1911 style pistols to execute little girls. They use old makarovs and other communist block POS. The author should be ashamed associating a great American handgun design with Islamic culture.

I'm so mad, I have to vent over this!

Just saw this link and I was thinking about how it has been suggested that a law be passed to make it criminal to insult Islam.

Isn't there already laws against such behavior? I mean really, how is this even twisted into something that is okay or acceptable.

Thanks for listening!
