Did Hillary Clinton Setup Obama for Tonight’s Debate?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has taken the blame for security lapses at our embassies. Why would she do this the day before President Obama’s second debate with Mitt Romney? It doesn’t make sense unless (1) Obama forced her to take the blame hoping he can diffuse the political damage that the embassy violence has caused to his re-election chances or (2) she wants to damage the president by coming off as more presidential.

Taking the blame goes a long way politically. Her “the buck stops here” admission makes the president look small. Did she do this on purpose? Is she setting herself up for a run in 2016 by distancing herself from Obama’s blame-shifting political strategy?

Did Obama make a deal with her? If she took the blame and if he wins, Joe Biden will step down as vice president and he’ll pick Hillary, setting her up as the logical choice for President in 2016.

Economic numbers are looking up for the President. Michelle has said the economy is on an upswing. Unemployment is below 8 percent. While these numbers are suspect, they tend to filter through the population. The media can have an impact on how people think by how they position the news. The flip in the numbers came just at the right time for November 6th.

Obama can dismiss the embassy trouble at the debate by saying that it was all Hillary’s fault. Of course, he won’t say it like that. He’ll most likely praise her for doing the stand-up thing by taking the blame. He can then shift the debate back to the more optimistic economic numbers that the First Lady is pushing on the talk shows.

To be honest, I don’t know why Hillary decided to fall on her political sword. I don’t trust either one of them. Hillary has Bill whispering in her ear. Does anyone know who’s whispering in Obama’s ear?

It’s up to Romney to keep the pressure on the President tonight. It’s still the economy, but Americans don’t like a cover-up. The new media has forced the old media to deal with the story.

This is much worse than Watergate. No one died in the 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C.
