being a man finally pays off for obama

Abusive Ogre Barack Obama Forces Hillary Clinton Into Taking Responsibility For Her Department

satan needs a good manThe Secretary of State is responsible for diplomatic security. The president is responsible for the Secretary of State.

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton, who is the Secretary of State and incidentally the most powerful woman in the world, took responsibility for diplomatic security in Benghazi, where four Americans were killed.

“I take responsibility,” Clinton told CNN in an interview while on a visit to Peru. “I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They’re the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision.”

A cynical person would think that Hillary Clinton took responsibility to take pressure off of Obama before the election. A realistic person would say both that Clinton’s statement is largely true, that the cynical person’s thoughts are somewhat true, and also consider the timing.

Jennifer Rubin, however, has decided that Hillary Clinton took responsibility because she’s a penis-whipped shit sundae who’s not a real woman. Delicate lady-flowers should not be forced to take responsibility for the departments they run, because real men should stand up and do it for them. If that is not feminism, what is?

This seems particularly strange coming from a woman who’s a professional doormat for the Romney campaign, but whatevs. It’s a trenchant observation, that Hillary Clinton should have divorced her husband in the middle of his presidency (and therefore been a feminazi who broke up a marriage on the world’s most public stage) and then totes told Obama to go ride a dick into the sunset because Hills would have sent the entire Marine Corps to a second-tier diplomatic station.

Isn’t it really interesting and fun how Republicans become concerned about the well-being of feminism as a social and cultural force when it hurts Democrats? We remember in the addendum to The Feminine Mystique when Betty Friedan was like, “Oh, ladies, if a black dude become President we totally gotta use this shit against him. Please RT if you agree.”

It remains to be seen how Hillary Clinton’s acid-dripping vagina will be affected by its sudden change in chemical composition to a base pool of man-domination. It accepts so many hydrogen ions, by which we mean unfair judgments from men.

And those are all the chemistry jokes we know.

      Is it too much to ask for a journalist, if any exist anymore, to point out that the Republicans refused to vote for money for more security for the embassies and consulates worldwide? Oh, gee, I'm sorry my bad!

      1. fuflans

        i really hope this can get said in the debates – somehow – cause this whole line of repub attack is seriously making me sick.

        romney dude on npr this AM was a total talking point tool (though for once steve inskeep was pretty effective).

  1. Exhausted66

    If only she'd admitted that it was a terrorist attack from the moment it happened those 4 Americans would still be alive and there'd be peace in the Middle East.

  2. veritass

    I seriously can't tell if @JRubinBlogger is a troll account or not. I guess that says everything.

  3. anniegetyerfun

    Hillary is not black. Bill and Obama are. So they are the real villains, for their blackness.

  4. tiredalways

    2 Hydrogen & 1 Oxygen were totally gonna be in dry state when they meet but didn't work out that way, or something like that- my kinda chemistry joke..

  5. weejee

    Now will Representative Issa the Pissah take responsibility for outing to the world the CIA 'safe house' that was where the attack took place???

  6. Callyson

    Oh FFS, if there is one thing I hate it is when the wingnuts start hijacking feminist rhetoric when it serves their political purposes. Hillary Clinton is simply doing the stand up thing and is taking responsibility…

    …oh, but of course, *that's* why the Republicans are so confused and can't understand what she is doing…

    1. Crank_Tango

      …and if there is anything I have learned from my accidental visits to Jezebel, jrubin is the real misogynist here, somehow.

  7. Goonemeritus

    I have been married for more than thirty years and in my experience I have never been able to make my wife take responsibility for anything. It’s ok because I get back at her by locking out all the TV channels that play Law and Order.

  8. snowpointsecret

    Apparently they don't like women that have the ability to use logic in the Republican Party. They might actually do something on their own, like Hillary Clinton!

  9. SayItWithWookies

    These fucking jackasses — can you imagine what the reaction would be if every fucking time we got attacked during the Dubya administration some Democrat raised hell about how Dubya had failed the nation, betrayed our trust and cost American lives so he could wrap himself in the flag? The right's politicizing this incident — and worse, completely distorting the facts while the investigation is ongoing — is truly the nadir of this campaign.

    Add anyone with even a smidgen of decency to the list — currently including women, gays, people whose federal tax credits mean they don't pay income taxes, the fiscally sensible, latinos, muslims, the non-religious — to the ever-growing roster of people the Romney campaign has alienated.

  10. ManchuCandidate

    By that lojik wouldn't that make the 9/11 debacle and the Iraqinam clusterfuck W's responsibility…. I mean Cheney's responsibility?

    I kept hearing from apologists like Rubin that the W Administration wasn't responsible for neglecting intelligence because who knew what a crazy nut like OBL would do. No one expected that Sadman Hussein wouldn't have the weapons of Mass distraction, etc.

    1. UnholyMoses

      By their "logic" Condi Rice is the greatest feminist ever for never taking responsibility for anything.

  11. elviouslyqueer

    Oh, for the love of God. Would someone please give that twatting, poo-flinging monkey a decent set of Pampers?

  12. Lascauxcaveman

    To her credit, however, Hillary was there in the embassy, with her apron, broom and dustpan, cleaning up afterwards. Then she made everyone some sammiches.

  13. MissTaken

    Wait a sec! Nobody told me being a feminist meant I had to take responsibility for things I oversee. *Now* you tell me! It's back to barefoot and preggers in the kitchen for me!

    1. SorosBot

      Wait, I though being a feminist meant you just hate all men and are angry all the time, and are also a vicious prude who goes around having slutty slutty sex all the time, according to Rush Limbaugh at least.

      1. MissTaken

        That's what I thought, too! That's why I was so slutty and nasty to men. To learn that it also includes responsibility for my actions is just plain annoying.

  14. Joshua Norton

    Isn’t it really interesting and fun how Republicans become concerned about the well-being of feminism as a social and cultural force when it hurts Democrats?

    Silly libtards. Doncha now that all repug problems with women are counterbalanced by Ann Romney and how dreamy Paul Ryan is?

  15. belmontreport

    I don't really understand why people can't understand the Clinton's marriage. They love each other. They admire each other. They don't want to sex each other. Who cares?

    1. MissTaken

      But, but, if I don't pay loads of attention to another couple's marriage and what they do in their bedroom than how will I spend my time? Thinking about and concentrating on my own relationship?!?! Phff, as if!

  16. Blueb4sinrise

    Must admit to having those cynical thoughts. Also thinking that she should have said it a week ago.

  17. FakaktaSouth

    I hate this shit, it's such a meta-fucking-tacky way of double rubbing Hill's nose in all of this, and knowing how much they love it just pisses me off even more.

    I just hate Jennifer Rubin and any woman who would do this.

    "Remember when being married poorly to this woman became a thing Republican dickbags who were also screwing around used against Bill try and get him in trouble? And then how we all called her a lesbian? And blasted the whole thing across the world? That really was a humiliating thing Bill did." Just shut the fuck up. The woman has a job and she is talking about her JOB, leave that other bullshit that is all what the Bible toting gossip mongering housewives I know here love so much alone.

    (And shut up before you even say anything you know who with the Cankles McSwampsow stuff, just not today, I will totally smack you.)

    1. prommie

      She's a good soldier, to throw herself under the bus and take the mendacious blame for the fictitious failure the republican goon squad is ginning up.

  18. UnholyMoses

    Jennifer Rubin's thoughts on feminism are as worth reading as Mitten's thoughts on what it's like to have less than $50 in your bank account the Tuesday after payday.

    That might be a tad specific, but … well … fuck. Just … fuckity fuck these fucking fuckers.

  19. Mumbletypeg

    I tried reading this as if it were an Onion piece, then realized perhaps subconsciously I have been doing this a lot — in order to locate that singular element of absurdity from which to wring humor — or at least since whicever point in time the rightwing stoopid/ GOP dodging-of-accountability/ teatards double-down on teh crazee / death of irony all conspired to make ignorance a virtue and thus harder to get laffs from.

  20. Lot_49

    El Rushbo was having an orgasm of nostalgia the other day, remembering all the things he and his ditto-heads hate about Hillz. They hate powerful women. They hate powerful black people.

    What don't they hate?

    Oh, right: guns. They love their guns.

  21. orygoon

    "Jennifer Rubin"

    I stone checked out when I saw that particular arrangement of the alphabet, tyvm.

    Upfists to everyone who dislikes this person as much as I do, though.

  22. SorosBot

    I'm sure Rubin's defense of Clinton is totally sincere and feminist and not a purely political attack on Obama.

  23. Lot_49

    It's gratifying to observe that noted goat-fellator Mickey Kaus was wrong (again!) in his speculation the other day that Hilz wouldn't take the fall for this because it might hurt her chances in 2016.

  24. sullivanst

    Clinton-Rubin cage match, NOW!

    Then we can be rid of the shameless shill for good – Hillary would eat her face off.

  25. Chet Kincaid_

    Saint Ronald Reagan never evaded responsibility by throwing his people under the bus!! (Cough cough, David Stockman, Al Haig, Everyone Indicted For Iran/Contra…)

    1. Tundra Grifter

      Convicted felon Col. Ollie North – who said President Reagan know all about it, while Nancy Reagan says he didn't.

  26. Doktor Zoom

    So,Argon walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve noble gasses here."

    Argon doesn't react.

  27. NDeeeZ

    I'm amazed that she's taken the high road–no mention of the Reps downsizing her budget.

    Get this–real life budget slashing has real life consequences–go figure.

  28. Tundra Grifter

    This is remarkably similar to "Fast & Furious" – the scandal blown out of the water by the Fortune Magazine.

    "Contrary To Right-Wing Media Claims, Report Confirms Anti-Islam Video Was Catalyst For Libya Attack"
    http://www.mediamatters.org/research/2012/10/16/c

    A difficult, complex, dangerous series of events takes place very quickly. President Obama does his level best to get it right, to tell the American people and the rest of the world what happened in a calm, reasoned manner based on what is known at the time.

    While suggesting we reserve judgment until the facts are in, of course.

    Heck, it's not like we just hauled off and invaded the wrong country…

  29. zumpie

    Not only does the Evil Kenyan Muslin Usurper hate the ladies, he hates EVERYONE and is a frosty meanie. Or at least that's what "former aide" (read WH outsider who mean meanie Prez wouldn't look at the middle school essay about ponies she showed him).__Cause people haters always choose careers that involve super low pay and working directly with the public. Especially when they're overqualified for it.

  30. vulpes82

    I honestly wonder if anyone other than the neocons really cares about this Libya thing. The "undecideds" can't find it on a map, or even pronounce it.

  31. T3rbo

    Anyone read this?

    "The ferocity and intensity of the attack was nothing that we had seen in Libya, or that I had seen in my time in the Diplomatic Security Service," Nordstrom testified. "Having an extra foot of wall, or an extra half dozen guards or agents would not have enabled us to respond to that kind of assault."

  32. lulzmonger

    Silly girl – personal responsibility is only a phrase for adding spice to campaign speeches!
    *eyeroll*

    The poor wingnuts are just all disappointed that their ratfucky smear of HRC falsely tying her to the Muslim Brotherhood didn't get her killed when she went overseas (this time). SO SAD.
