Lima, Peru (CNN) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the buck stops with her when it comes to who is to blame for security ahead of a deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. "I take responsibility" for what happened on September 11, Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Elise Labott soon after arriving in Lima, Peru, for a visit. The interview, one of a series given to U.S. television networks Monday night, was the first she has given about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Hillbillery can take all the responsibility, but either she should resign or be fired. No one can take the blame for the President. And by the way, what was offered to ambassador Rice to go out and lie on all the Sunday shows?

She is only taking responsibility for the failed security at embassy which lead to the 4 deaths. She didn't take responsibility for the WH saying it was a video for 2 weeks, and the cover-up.

What convenient timing. PIAPs falls on her sword to prevent Obama from having to answer Romney's questions during tomorrow night's debate.

In the olden days she would take responsibility by falling on her sword. Expecting honor out of such a person would be dreaming.

Good! Now tell us who told you to lie to us and send apologies to the Muslims about a video that had nothing to do with the event.

THe admission I am sure was advice from Bill, so that the scandal will be over and done with and the people will forget by the time she is running for president.

So what does that mean? How can she pay for her negligence of duty that cost torture and death for those Americans?
I am coming to hate "liberals" more every day.

She gets to be seen as demonstrating real leadership.

It ain't being done for that reason.

She makes Zippy look inconsequential, preempts any blame for his impending loss and she knows something else is going to come out before the elections that will destroy Zippy on its own.

Something the Clintons probably dug up and were saving.

Something else is getting ready to break.

What exactly is she taking responsibility for? This generic mea culpa sheds no light on anything. Does she think this settles the question? Is she acknowledging a mistake? What mistake? What was her role in it? Who else besides the head of the State Department would be responsible for security of embassies. Does she actually think she could avoid responsibility for this - that she is being magnanimous by "accepting responsibility?" Maybe she thinks it will all go away now. Is this supposed to relieve the president of responsibility for the consequences of his foreign policy? How stupid do they think Americans are?

What an awful crew. How clean and pure and healthy it will be when they are gone, flushed down the drain where they belong.

When their husbands went off to World War II, Louise Sollowin and her sister bought a house in South Omaha and moved in together. There, she held court in the kitchen, whipping up vast meals and, as she did, shooing people from her sacred domain. The house is where she sewed drapes and pajamas for her grandchildren. And it was where the 93-year-old woman met her end in brutal fashion, where she was sexually assaulted and pummeled in her bed by an intruder, according to Omaha police.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) announced last week that it will discontinue the free school breakfast plan it initiated last year. Called "Food for Thought," the plan provides school breakfasts to about 200,000 students. It was funded by the LAUSD and the nonprofit Los Angeles Fund for Public Education, whose goal is to raise the number who participate to about 450,000 students (out of a total of 645,000 in the entire district).

In 1854, Abraham Lincoln confronted America’s first “pro-choice” Senator, Stephen Douglas, in a speech in Peoria, Illinois. “Choice” then was about slavery, not abortion. Douglas sponsored the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which addressed the sticky question of how to deal with the legality of slavery in new territories entering the union. The Kansas-Nebraska Act resolved this by “choice.” Residents would vote to decide if slavery would be legal in their territory. Lincoln challenged Douglas’s “pro-choice” position on slavery. According to Douglas, said Lincoln, “…the principle of the Nebraska Bill was very old;

We cannot bring back the stolen lives. We cannot bring back the lost limbs or the lost hearing. And we cannot mitigate the infinite grief of the victims´ loved ones. But there is something we can and must do: We must learn all the lessons we can. Here are some: 1. The gulf between the decent and the indecent. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older brother, once told an interviewer before a Golden Gloves boxing competition: "I don´t have a single American friend. I don´t understand them." The reason Tsarnaev didn´t understand Americans was not primarily cultural.

In recent weeks, Mr. Bill O´Reilly has reached his very large television and web site audience with several claims that more than "Bible thumping" will be required to defend marriage. He has stated that the battle to preserve marriage is in fact lost. He has reported that his libertarian position on the matter makes the defense of marriage irrelevant. And, further, he has implied that biblical teaching is unacceptable in the public square. As far back as 2008, in an interview with PBS, O´Reilly stated, "Do I care about this? Not really. I don´t care what Lenny and Squiggy do.

Dr. Ben Carson stepped into the national spotlight recently when, as speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast, to an audience that included President Obama, he was openly critical of the President’s approach to health care and his overall management of the nation’s economy. Carson, who is director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, is a hero to many. His life story, rising from a Detroit ghetto to a life of accomplishment and distinction, is a story of American ideals on steroids.

Jean Stothert, a Republican candidate with the potential to become Omaha´s first female mayor, endured two assaults on her gender in the past week that one national observer said were among the most “disgusting” sexist attacks she had ever seen leveled at a woman politician. One assault came in the form of a T-shirt that depicted Stothert as a stripper on a pole. It came with a crude word pun that revolved around the words: “private sector.”

No one is calling him Maurice, but Deon Stewart proclaimed himself a gangster of love Wednesday and admitted to a string of Omaha robberies. In a rambling jailhouse press conference, the 21-year-old Stewart said he committed 14 robberies in four days so he could get his share of the “silver and gold” that he feels is his due. Stewart said he was surprised by how easily clerks gave up the money when he flashed his silver pistol, and even says some of them might have wanted him to have the cash. “One night, I just went into every store that I could to get my silver and gold,” Stewart said.

Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But

Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
