When, just over a year ago, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took responsible for the Benghazi debacle, she suffered no consequences, even as the media claimed the former First Lady had fallen on her sword.
Now another member of President Obama’s cabinet has changed her tune and taken responsibility for the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, asking that Congress hold her “accountable” as she is “responsible.” And what exactly does that mean to hold her responsible? Mrs. Clinton kept her job after verbally taking responsibility. Looks like Mrs. Sebelius will keep hers as well.
Guess maybe she’s going to go to the White House where the president will dispense fifty lashes with a wet noodle.
