Clintons May Torpedo Obama Presidency over Benghazi Blame

By Alex Pappas. With tensions between President Obama and the Clintons at a new high, former President Bill Clinton is moving fast to develop a contingency plan for how his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, should react if Obama attempts to tie the Benghazi fiasco around her neck, according to author Ed Klein.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters during a press conference Friday that responsibility for the consulate in Libya fell on the State Department, not the White House.

If blame for the security failures falls to Hillary Clinton, Klein said, it’s possible that she would even consider resigning over the issue.

“Bill is working on a number of strategies about what Hillary ought to do. He’s even gone so far as to play with various doomsday scenarios including up to the idea that Hillary would consider resigning over the issue if the Obama team tries to use her as a scapegoat,” Klein told TheDC in an interview.

Klein: Clinton-Obama rift intensifies after Libya, Obama’s debate performance

By Edward Klein. [S]ince the convention, Clinton and Obama have had a serious falling-out over two issues: the president’s preparation and lamentable performance in his debate with Mitt Romney, and the question of who should be assigned blame — Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — for the intelligence and security screw-up in Benghazi, Libya.

This new rift, which the Clintons and Obamas have managed to keep secret from the media, has poisoned their relations to such an extent that it could conceivably have an impact on the outcome of the presidential election.

The latest quarrel began when Clinton heard that Obama was behaving so cocky about his first debate against Mitt Romney that he wasn’t taking his debate prep seriously. Out of concern, Clinton had an aide call the White House and say that the former president would be more than happy to give the current president some pointers and advice on how to get the best of Romney.

Clinton waited several days for a response, but none was forthcoming. According to my sources, the former president was dumbfounded that Obama had ignored his offer, and his hurt feelings quickly boiled over into anger.

“Bill thought that he and Obama were on friendly terms after the convention,” one source told me. “He couldn’t believe that the White House didn’t even extend him the courtesy of a return phone call. He concluded that Obama’s arrogance knows no bounds.” Read more from this story HERE.

    Just four more bodies piling up in the clinton body count….

    • nobodysfool

      I think you mis-read. The writer is talking about oBlamer’s body count/bumps in the road, and his (oBlamer’s) pointing the finger at Hillary. I thought it was a clever scheme of his to deep-six her future ambitions for the office of president–to lay all the blame for these deaths at her feet. Now maybe she is guilty–I’m the last one to stick up for a Clinton–but oBlamer should not get away with this crime. He is the Commander-in-Chief (although it sickens me to think it) and all fault comes home to roost in his personal chicken coop.

      • he is incompetent and Hitler ego to the max. Start looking at the shooters. All seem dazed and confused. govt and drugs. James holmes dad whisltbowing against banks and now his son a murderer? read more… republican judge shot and killed during Gifford shooting. This judge was a constitutionalist and was wailing on Obama prosecuters and now he is dead? Go to Sheriff Mack.com and get the real lodown. Obama according to norma jean young murdered her son Donald and then the coincidences begin.

      • Peoriaboy

        We need to start throwing the Generals from West Point that graduated with such great knowledge of the Constitution for allowing a commander in chief that knows nothing but organizing an acorn giveaway program for the worthless. General that follow a clown like this you have to wonder about them I can’t General Patton following this bozo.

        • I can just hear Gen. Patton saying, “We fought and died for this?”

          • Peoriaboy

            You got that right and I think General Schwartzkoff of the first Gulf War was as close ass you could come to being like Patton,today military leaders are just politicians using young men for their benefit.Wake up Generals before our young men wake up and sue you all for not leading them in victory in wars and when they come home to get what they are promised in benefits and health care.

    • Very well said. I still remember the “SUICIDE” of Mr. Clinton’s best friend and side kick. REALLY? Suicide?

      • Left wing democrats commit murder and call it suicide or video terrorism! impeach and try for treason the whole rats nest.

    Like the CLINTONS are examples of GOODNESS!! Hah!! They’re just as much in bed with those trying to bring us down!

    • Stealth; Clinton’s are heavily tied to China and Russia and Hillary still wants to be President. She has spent her entire life working for it. I think she is going to resign then be a “whistle Blower” for Issa Hearings. Just sayin

      • That might be a godsend.

        Hillary let them ace her out she will never be president now and the best thing for her to do now is to throw obumer under the buss and get them arrested and thrown out of the WH

    Well , whaddaya know..Clinton actually thought he had any influence with the obama gang?? was used at the convention and then tossed away like an old shoe?? thought he was smarter than that…someone pulled a fast one on slick willie and his wife..lol

    • Watchdog

      Remember– it was the Clinton’s that started the Birther movement during the 08 debates– then one of the Clinton’s campaign workers was murdered in the campaign office during the day–Then I heard or read that the Clinton’s were told that Chelsea could be next — Then they went silent–I don’t know who it was or even if it is true

      • IT WAS A REPORTER WHO TOLD THIS STORY AND I THINK A DOCUMENTRY. THERE IS SO MUCH OBAMA SLIME OUT THERE I FORGET MORE THAN I REMEMBER. GET R&R AFTER 4 YEARS OF BATTLE VOTE ROMNEY/RYAN

      • Peoriaboy

        And they should of kept it up. You got to remember him being an X president could of just as easily thrower that threat back on them.And why wasn’t? it any real man would of and that s what the FBI is for.

      • Peoriaboy

        Like I said Clinton should of went right to obumer and put a bug in his ear and also got The FBI involved right away and as a matter of fact the FBI should be looking into who made the threats and arrest some one, other wise you can’t make me believe that our security info isn’t worth a shit if they can’t catch who made the threat how are they going to catch any one that is a threat to America other than sitting up a sting for the purpose of looking like they done something good.

    • Peoriaboy

      I personally don’t think the Clintonbs have it in them as they wer thrown under the bus right from the beginning and sucked it up Hillary would of won that election hands down and been way better than this fool in the white house even though I don’t care for her,all I can see is them continuing to wipe his ass . Even if you belong to a certain party and allow whats going on now tells me your about as worthless as whats in office ,if you can’t see whats good for America and the great ones before us and just willing to sit there knowing this guy is just to far to the left and let in continue then you should be bood off of the stage.

      • ginger

  • silverbackV

    They all should go down in flames! There was a crawler on the bottom of the TV screen yesterday saying Hillary said we owe our support to the emerging democracies in the mid-East. So what kind of democracy does the Muslim Brotherhood support?

    I get real tired of being talked to like I’m an idiot.

    • Bingo, silverbackV. Hellery’s idea of democracy is – overthrowing allies in the East and replacing the friendly governments with radical Islam groups, hence, the Muslim Brotherhood. As a result, the East is far more unstable and millions of Christians are once again being slaughtered by the group.

      • silverbackV

        Yes Ann, and at the same time leading the nation down the primrose path like a bull with a nose ring to the slaughter. I live in a small community in S.W. Florida with more than our share of blinded liberals. I have been able to lead a few to the truth, but the overall situation is bleak if you believe the polls. God knows what is going on, none of this has taken him by surprise. Remember, Daniel was devote but was still lead away to Babylon in chains. He did prevail, but had no bed of roses.

    • tom s

      It’s too bad that more Americans had to die because of the corrupt leaders now in power, including obama & clinton. But- it’s about time that their mis-conduct is finally starting to kick them in the butt. I only hope that it’s in time to force them to lose the election, and I hope that hiliary catches her portion of the blame also and prevents her from her further political ambitions. We don’t need clintons in power in the future either. I think she may be a step above obama, but that’s still pretty low.

      • Peoriaboy

        I can go with that but I still prefer that they march in the White House with One Hell Of a Leader Real General and his MPs and hall his ass out buy his heals.

  • Wow, now THERE’S a shocker! Obamas arrogance knows no bounds! Who knew? I guess ex-presidents are always the last to know!

    Re: responsibility? Buck stops @ obamas desk whether he knew or not. And Hilary declined more security and pulled most of what was there. I’d say more than enough blame to go around. Be nice, though, if these two acted ad adults dealing with the issue rather than kindergartners throwing sand at each other in the sandbox.

    Besides, if Obama DIDN’T know what was going on in Muslim countries as 9-11 approached that’s arguably worse.

    Well, I dunno how much better to explain obummer’s arrogance and attitude toward everyone else, other than this piece of news. This only reinforces what many of us have known for a fact for years now. He treats his so-called Allies with guile and utter contempt behind their back; and he treats Citizens as ‘suckers’, with hatred, racism, and brute-thuggery.

  • daveveselenak

    sorry about the interuption, as I was saying, I love the infighting amongst the communist hierarchy! Both sides being used by the other, but more so of the Hillbilly clan, the Clinton’s by Obaa-baa-ma; having loverboy Bill, more than glad to have the spotlight to spew his rhetoric, and the ole commie hag Hillory out shilling for her pimp for him installing her as Secretary of State that she has no business being; so now, realizing that they have been used by the Muslim-Marxist, they are ouraged anddeem that retribution is the order of the day. I welcome the three power hungry, adulation seeking, narsisstic demagogues go at it and I pray that they destroy each other! Amen.

  • Don Rushig

    Birds of a feather flock together. There is no difference between Obama and the Clintons. They think alike and act alike. There is really nolove lost between them. They are the modern version of the Hatfields and McCoys.
    I could care less for either one. They must be defeated this November 6, 2012 by electing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Then we will have a chance to rescue America from the cliff that Obama and ALL of the democRATS
    are pushing us over. If Obama gets another four years, then people can
    kiss themselves goodbye because his destruction of America will be set in
    stone.

  • TexRancher

    Hillery should be careful that her torpedo doesn’t circle around and sink her sub! The State Dept. is more than knee deep in this and wonder who stops that BUCK? Yep!

  • RonMar

    The Clintons had an opportunity to torpedo Obama during the ’08 primaries, but they backed off when Obama operatives threatened Chelsea’s life. Given the present evidence and its international exposure they can stop Obama/Biden now from reelection.

  • No Truman attitude about the presidency with Obama. The buck not only doesnt stop at his desk, it doesnt even get that far.

    • I Hate Huffn’Puffn’

      Yup . . . Fast and Furious and hiz top cop Eric Holder (picture this snake on the Supreme Court) followed by all his gay Czars, heading Education along with appointments to Supreme Court. THE FRUIT of THEIR WORK is reflections of the president and done with his blessings, BO must wear the GOOD and the BAD! OMG!

  • Devine Intervention at its best. Psalm 2:10

  • cherokee_warrior

    Oh yes, the plot thickens. Will Hillary ‘bit the builler’ and ‘fall on her sword’ for the Party and Obama? Will ol Bill, the ‘buddy’ (politically and tongue in cheek) of Obama permit such to happen to Hillary?
    Starting to ‘read’ like a mello-drama, isn’t it? And ……………….. it is being made for TV!!!
    All things point to Hillary wanting to run in 2016, that is, if the world is still here, but, to fall ‘on the sword’ would be a ‘killer’ for her chances of doing that.
    Wonder what kind of odds the Vegas bookies are going to give?

  • allan cunningham

    This should prove to be interesting. Originally Bill Clinton was all about endorsing Obama for another four years. Thus making it possible for Hillary to make a run for the White House in 2016. If Romney should get elected it’s possible he could be there for eight years wiping out any hopes for Hillary and a later date because of her age. Friendship is often forced upon you when the stakes are high regardless how sincere….that’s politics my friend…..

    Slick Willie is a white boy and not gay like his old lady. So what should we expect from bayrack who sources in Chicago’s gay community report that Obama was attracted to Man’s Country’s older white clientele because he generally enjoys being fellated by older white men. Obama would regularly be seen at Man’s Country on Wednesdays. It was known as Whip It Out Wednesday in Barry’s gay circles. No chance here with slick willie so bayrack ignores slick.

  • raynbene

    I have always maintained that Bill needs no excuse to try to take down obuma, but this may play well into his filthy hands – his only burning desire is to get hitlery into the White House, and obuma is the one who stopped it 4 years ago . .he still wants to be first ‘man’, if you can call him a man . .but this should be fun to watch as it unfolds in living color . .they always eat their own ! !

    • ET

      And we SO hope they do (eat their own)!

  • wandamurline

    Sure hope this is so….when you lay in a snake bed, you can expect to be bitten. I hope Hiliary does resign…then the whole kitkabootal with be hung around Obama’s neck where it belongs. Slick Willie Bill should have talked to Oprah Winfrey before he want all out for Obama….she went all out in 2008 for Obama and it has costs her dearly….Moochelle no longer invites her to the White House and she has lost about 350 million dollars on her cable network because she p!ssed off her audience…Obama uses people and when he gets what he is after, he discards them. Of course, Oprah got what she deserved and Slick Willie and Hilliary will get what they deserve…..actually, they deserve each other.

  • 1_Eddie_1

    Let Benghazi be Hillary Clinton’s “Chappaquiddick”. She is upstream of the ambassador, his request’s went right to her in the chain of command. She either forwarded it, or denied the request’s.

  • Hill volunteered for her job just as Ambassador Stephens did. When you work for a snake, what do you expect? It is her job to serve and be sacrificed for her Obamessiah.

  • It is well known that communists eat their young, and will not take the blame for anything that is seen negatively, especially if they are a narcist like the liar in charge. It would seem that the blame should go on Big Bird Hillary’s record, but we all know Oblunder rules from a bully pulpit, and those kinds of decisions can not be made by a mere mortal. I am sure that the decision not to increase the security at Benghazi, was Oblunder’s, and his alone, unless Jarett was in charge at the time, who knows.

  • RetiredASA

    Hillary’s followers should be very concerned. The President has no respect for her OR Bill. She can sink his re-election with just a few small words. The issue though is that this will create a major disparity within the Democrat Party, and it may takes years to recover. It is most certainly a dilemma; show the dissension within the party or ruin the future chances for Hillary to run for the presidency or perhaps a majority role within the Senate.

    What does Obama know about Hillary? that she has turned into his puppet. Hillary is not to be blamed for Obama’s lack of foreign affairs and he should have had security for the people in any foreign country. especially Muslim countries! Why is Obama giving money to these dictators? He wants the Muslim Brotherhood in these countries and stop the freedom of religion.

  • Larry T. Doughty

    Now could Bill and Hillary provide us with an October surprise? Wow! Resign Hilliary, Obama is throwing you under the bus. Pay attention. Romney is going to be the next President, so why not resign and start campaigning for 2016.

  • quarkie009

    Bil Clinton and Hillary will not do anything to hurt Obama, they love him too
    much. Besides, Obama is doing the same thing Hillary would do if she was
    president. Neither one of them has said something that would deflate
    Obama’s ego and his pride. Who knows, Obama may have some dirt on them in which he can use to keep them quiet.

  • Amazing! The Rube Goldberg machine of right-wing punditry is exemplifying what NOT to do as journalists: refer to other journalists as “persons possessing the truth” in political matters. No quotes from Bill, no quotes from Hillary, no quotes from Obama, no quotes from Axelrod, no quotes from “deep background” sources.

    Wow. Made up garbage! Has Joe Miller ever thought of trying-out for The Lifetime Network?

  • Obama and the Clintons deserve each other.

  • Well old dumbo Hitlery herself put herself in the position to take all of the blame. Remember she said, “The buck stops here.” I wonder who died and made her president. She thought this made her a big hero. This only proves to me that these communist, liberal, socialists, muslims will lie for any reason they see fit. If she lied to cover odumbo’s a$$, she will also lie to us. She’s toast as far as becoming president of the USA. Odumbo’s administration has warned the everyday intelligent citizen exactly what they are. Destroyers of America and our free ways. This bitch wants the UN to have the authority to take away our 2n amendant right. The right for free Americans to bear arms. She also along with Odumbo supports the UN taking our sovereign rights away. No more Constitution. The dictatorship UN will rule and boss us and they will have the power to do whatever they want to us. Check it out.

    the time was 2008, but the fact that a republican, was able to hold the country together, after 9-11-01, was too much to bear, after all al gore cried like a baby, when he lost, but like every revisionist progressive, and good little brown shirts, the goose stepping was admirable, it was surprising, how the “national socialist democratic party” turned to treasonable behavior, during a two front war, an asymmetric war, that was criticized for sport, and has delivered this country, to captive nation status, with the election, of an enemy of democracy, believer of rule by chaos, while he arms our enemies, and allied our country, to the 57 states, yes the islamic states, introduced “total jihad”, in a region, that for the first time, experienced relative calm, thanks to the bush policies against islamic naziism, that proof, is the genocide being committed against the “infidel” orthodox christians, the moslem brotherhood’s doctrine, that obama not only supports but believes in, just like this country is now since his “elections”, been fundamentally transformed, his words, into an islamic- centric, no actually a nation of islamiism, where secular religion, is no longer accepted, yes that transformation, to subsistence existence, like his motherland, whatever that is, surely is not judeo-christian.
