    Wow, how magnanimous of her. So what consequences are attached to her taking responsibility for such a monumental ****-up? Is she going to resign from office?

    Accepting responsibility without facing any consequences is completely meaningless. :upeyes:

    The timing on this was impeccable; after dodging any responsibility for this event for a month, she decides to "fess up" the day before the presidential debate.

    These people are just amazing.....amazingly bad

    "takes responibility" for somethng that is not hers,
    to distance herself from the fallout of misinformation since.

    They say if it wasn't for her Obama would have had Osama Bin Laden "Arrested" and probably would have not given the OK for the raid in the first place. Obama has brass ones for taking any credit for killing Bin Laden.

    She may be a bytch, but she was the right bytch, in the right place at the right time for that.

    Agree completely. If the words "I take responsibility" are not followed by "therefore, I resign, effective immediately," then the acceptance of responsibility is just a bunch of hollow words.

    And, try to bring that issue up in the future. You'll be met with, "She already accepted responsibility. Why do you keep bringing it up?" It's their way of closing the case: Criminal, crime, confession, zero punishment.

    I disagree. The Klintons are the most self serving people in the world. There is more to this.

    Perhaps Obama promised her something if she would take the heat until after the election. Then he can step up, and admit his own fault, and Hillary will come out looking good.

    The Clintons are so well loved by the left that they will basically forgive her for anything she does and Obama knows this so they all get a pass.

    It's like "yeah I did It so?"

    Just what I was thinking. It's a sad day when Hillary Clinton shows more leaderhsip ability and character than anybody else at the top of the executive branch.

    This. The political danger here is in the coverup. Obama is the one invested in killing off terrorism and he and his stepped in it big time. Hillary just sidelined herself from the main event.

    Maybe the lawyers and advisers told her mistakes are easily forgiven, but coverups can kill a political career.

    Wasn't the coverup of Watergate worse than the actual break in?

    I suspect that while she is busy crawling out from under the bus, Bill has already hit the street trying to broker her "tell-all" book and movie deals.

    She sees the writing on the wall and 2016 is slipping away. So ...it's time for the Clintons to cash in ...again.

    Well, it is her department and she should have stepped up long ago rather than do so after the cover up failed, but its still a meaningless gesture since nothing will become of it. The only way it'll be resolved is to boot all of them out on their arse next month.

    This looks like politics as usual from the president who ran against politics as usual.

    Smart move on Hillary's part. She obviously learned a lesson from "Monica-Gate" and knows that when the evidence is overwhelming that you dropped the ball, it isn't wise to keep wagging your finger at America and insisting that you didn't do anything wrong.

    This may also play well into Romney's hands tonight at the debate.

    "Mr. President, your own Secretary of State has finally acknowledged her failures in the events leading up to the first successful assassination of a sitting American Ambassador in over 36 years. Why can't you accept responsibility for insisting for weeks after the fact that this was all due to a home-made video, rather than the result of a pre-planned, coordinated Al Queda attack"?

    So wait, the movie had nothing to do with the embassy bombings? Well, I'll be........

    I guess the 1 billion to the brotherhood was not such a great idea? That is on O and not her.

    You knew this was coming. No surprise she takes the fall and there are a lot of reasons for her to do it. The State Dept. did not operate in a vacuum though and O and his admin. were well aware of what happened and the spin (lies) they put out.

    It is hard to concern yourself with a terrorist act on US soil on 9/11 no less when you have a campaign fundraiser to attend in CO and an election to try to win.

    I'm sure we will have a congressional investigation AFTER the election.
