Do we, who expect adherence to the principles of our founding, expect too much from our leaders?
President Obama has met resistance to the suggestion of Susan Rice as his new Secretary of State and the Left has countered with claims of racism and gender discrimination, moves that are Obama's first lines of defense and as predictable as the tides.
Americans should expect a president to offer cabinet positions to people with moral integrity equal to his own; thus we should not be surprised with the Petraeus fiasco and the Fast and Furious felonies of Eric Holder. America realizes Rice lied to the American people on five different networks to protect the image of Obama and his competency. His boasts of neutralizing al-Qaeda following the assassination of Bin Ladin and the assertion that Libya was a noble war in that we enabled the overthrow of a dictator, who was a semi-reliable ally and helped install the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood who is a sworn enemy of the United States and Israel, were possible negative attributes before an election, despite the assurance of having the media in his pocket.
It is politics, and we can accept the fact that Rice is an Obama stooge. She willingly and knowingly participated in a coverup of the Benghazi atrocity, but all of the Obama appointees will lie for the president or they would not have their positions. However, Susan Rice has more troubling issues than lying to America as a part of the Benghazi coverup; she and her husband have oil investments with companies that have been trading with Iran in contradiction to the oil embargoes.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan E. Rice and her husband own modest stakes in companies that have until recently done business with Iran, prompting new questions from those opposed to her possible nomination as secretary of state.
The companies are global conglomerates. At least some of them have stopped doing business with Iran in order to comply with international sanctions.
With respect to Iran, Ambassador Rice worked to impose the toughest U.N. sanctions regime ever on Iran for its continued failure to live up to its obligations, said Rices spokeswoman, Erin Pelton. Iran is more isolated than it has ever been and facing the toughest economic pressure ever mustered.'

What? There’s money for Democrats in these Middle East debacles? How rare. I’ll bet when they killed Gaddafi, old George Snuffleupagus and his pals at ABC danced around with knives, laughing and clapping.
You ain't seen nothing yet!
The way I read it there is only a handful of people serving in congress who should not be undergoing trial for treason or at least be removed from office for violating their sworn oath.
Obama says if Republicans want to go after someone, they should go after him not rice.
Turn it around this way...
If Rice wants to blame someone for ruining her chances, blame Obama for sending her out to lie about Benghazi, not Republicans.
“moves that are Obama’s first lines of defense and as predictable as the tides.”
“only lines of defense”.
Actually, scum floats to the top and sticks together .... a basic biological principle applied by the Food Stamp President in his administration.
What do we expect? Well, a president who is a disgusting pig, will always act like a disgusting pig.
They can call me a racist all they want because I do discriminate against disgusting pigs.
If I’m not mistaken, Italy was throwing lots of cash at Libya to help manage its immigration problem. Muammar was also cooperating with the US regarding nuclear proliferation and perhaps other things. So it doesn’t surprise me to see a connection somewhere between Libyans and an ambassador from the West.
