Confirmation from Delaware’s traveling Attorney General that when President Obama said that “as President I bear responsibility for everything, to some degree” (See the 60 Minute Interview of President Obama by Steve Croft from September 24th, 2012), that he meant what he said. He has responsibility only “to some degree”. Evidently, when it comes to Libya, the State Department has the real authority.
Beau Biden, who insisted that his father [during the Vice Presidential debate] was speaking only for himself and the president[when he claimed that they didn’t know about the requests for more troops], called criticisms of the Obama administratin’s handling of the Libya attack “outrageous” and accused Republicans of “politicizing” the attacks.
Frankly, I think that it is outrageous that the White House is blaming the State Department. After all, doesn’t the State Department report to the White House? I guess on “to some degree”.
