Right blogs: Clinton protecting Obama (Obama throws Hillary under the bus and she takes it)

Conservatives in blogland pounced on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s statment taking responsibility for the security of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying it looks like a bid to shield President Barack Obamafrom the continuing fallout from the deadly attack.

Clinton, who told CNN, “I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha,” is “falling on the sword to save Obama,” wrote Erick Erickson at RedState.com.

Erickson asked, “Doesn’t the buck stop with Barack Obama?”

“That’s what the President said back in July,” Erickson wrote, pointing to a moment when Obama said he’s learned that the “buck stops” with the President of the United States. “In the same interview, he went on to say, ‘one of the things you learn is, you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations.’ But then again, often what this President practices and what he preaches are two different things.”

“This is a laudable gesture, especially when the White House is trying to avoid any responsibility whatsoever,” wrote GOP Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayottein a joint statement. But, they added later, “The security of Americans serving our nation everywhere in the world is ultimately the job of the Commander-in-Chief. The buck stops there.”
