Hillary Clinton: 'We Are Holding

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- who repeatedly suggested that an obscure anti-Muslim video prompted the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi -- on Wednesday was confronted with new reports that the Obama administration knew within two hours that the attack was launched by the terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia. (Snip) "Now, finally, on Benghazi -- Look, I've said it and I'll say it one more time. No one wants to find out what happened more than I do. We are holding ourselves accountable to the American people, because not only they but our great diplomats and development experts serving

Comments:
Accountable? Once again Hillary is trying to bury the truth. Instead of ''I can't recall'' it's ''this isn't evidence.'' She is as despicable a Marxist Chicago creature as is 0bama.

Any decent human being would resign over this deadly fiasco in Libya but not a Clinton.

How come it is that we must wait for the facts to come in when originally it was 'the video' when NO facts had come in? Or rather, all the facts that had come in said it was a planned terror attack?

Oh puleeeeze.... when Hillary and Clinton say the worn phrase... "I am responsible..I take responsibility..the buck stops with me."

What the heck does that mean?

They don't resign. So what that they say such things.

It is like a politician saying his or her prayers are with a family.

Do you really believe they pray to God?

Get ready.

It will require a newer and bigger scandal to brush this one off the radar.

The new and improved scandal will be more carefully orchestrated and involve some Republicans, if only tangentially.

She does not seem to realize how offensive and irrational she is with her "We are holding ourselves accountable" schtick. Her narcissism runneth over. And besides, she doesn't get the whole accountability thing. It doesn't work the way she appears to think, namely that self-accountability somehow substitutes for, complements or even trumps actual accountability. Like all narcissists, she is so impressed with herself that she actually believes her self-accountability is superior to the ordinary sort, the sort in which a public servant is accountable to the public. Her standards, we are supposed to believe, are incomparably higher than mere public accountability. It is irritating to her to be continually pressed for explanations, i.e. accountability to the public, when she knows she is so much more accountable to herself. No doubt she feels misunderstood and sorry for herself.

Hillary will skate by on this scandal, and will eventually run for president. She will never be asked about Benghazi.

Hey, if you are holding yourself accountable, then place yourself under arrest and turn yourself in, for possessing over 900 FBI files. You know we still remember that someone went to prison for possessing ONE FBI file illegally. Neither you nor B.J. have ever been held accountable for any of the many illegalities that you committed.

Remember the raid on the branch davidian compound in Waco, in 1993? Bill Clinton said, 'the buck never got here.'
And Janet Reno, when criticised for executing and incinerating 80 innocent people, said, 'no one feels worse than I do about those deaths.' And nothing happened to Janet Reno, nor did anything happened to General Wesley Clark, who provided the tanks for the assault on the compound.

If I may post again, yes, something DID happen to Colonel Clark, who commanded the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, Texas. He illegally provided military assistance and equipment at Waco, and was rewarded by being promoted over many more senior officers. Definately illegal and corrupt. That's the Clinton way.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner.

It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
