Damage Control: Obama Meets With Hillary at WH

Posted by on Oct 10, 2012 at 10:22 am

The remarkable part of this story is Obama is actually at the White House. So, he’s pretending to do his job for the first time in memory  or just doing some damage control over his massive Benghazi cover-up?

President Obama is scheduled to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton this afternoon in the Oval Office, as more damaging details about the terrorist attack against a United States consulate in Libya emerge.

Yesterday, the State Department revealed  that the attack was “unprecedented” and wasn’t preceded by a protest over the controversial YouTube video, directly contradicting explanation of the attack by the Obama administration.

Meanwhile, Robert Gibbs, this morning tried to minimize the damage, defending U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s assertion that the attack was sparked by the YouTube video.

So they’re still defending Rice? Please.

    Have they explained the concept of a “spontaneous mortar barrage” yet? Because if W. had said soemthing like this, I bet that the Lovely Left would take exception to it.

    This hastily scheduled meet with Clinton has nothing to do with State Dept officials testifying before Issa’s committee today. No, couldn’t possibly.

    Defending Rice? No they’re defending Obama (and probably Hilary). Rice did as she was told. They can’t throw her under a bus, and let her take the fall (perhaps yet) when the spotlight is firmly on them.

    It will be interesting to see how they spin the damage control.

    Are you all forgetting that this is the same administration who labeled the Ft. Hood shooting as a case of “work place violence”. Audacity has no bounds.
