Ambassador Susan Rice: U.S. Not ‘Impotent’ in Muslim World
abc ^ | 9/16/2012 | jake tapper

Posted on 09/16/2012 6:55:20 PM PDT by tobyhill

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told me this morning on “This Week” that the United States is not “impotent” in the face of violent anti-American protests sweeping the Muslim world.

After showing Rice a map of protests in 33 countries around the world in recent days, I asked Rice, “President Obama pledged to repair America’s relationships with the Muslim world. Why does the U.S. seem so impotent? And why is the U.S. even less popular today in some of these Muslim and Arab countries than it was four years ago?”

“We’re not impotent, we’re not even less popular, to challenge that assessment,” Rice said in response. “What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi and many other parts of the region was a result, a direct result, of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. government had nothing to do with, which we have made clear is reprehensible and disgusting.”

I heard her interview today. She’s still blaming the violence on the movie.

>> “We’re not impotent, we’re not even less popular, to challenge that assessment,” Rice said in response.

A contradiction in certain circles.

A new campaign slogan: “Vote Obama - We’re Not Even Less Popular!”

The US is ABSOLUTELY IMPOTENT in the Middle Eastern-Muslim world.

Want to know why? Because we don’t have guys like the WWII generation running sh*t, that’s why. We don’t have guys like Black Jack Pershing running SH*T, that’s why.

The muslims in the ME only understand one thing, as they so aptly demonstrate, VIOLENCE. When that violence is brought to them, they are the biggest PU**IES in the world. But when they know nothing will happen to them, they are the biggest and deadliest opportunists in the world

You’ve got a real problem if you have to assure people that you aren’t impotent.

The only other entity that is saying this is Al Qaeda, which means that the Obama Administration and Al Qaeda are in lock-step agreement.

Exactly...you nailed it. While not popular, total annihilation of terrorist nations would give us a breather for a generation or two. We don’t seem to have any problems with Japan, do we.

I've heard some folks don't like the new Nemo movie but it's a bit over the top for Obama to be blaming it for the Mideast violence.

If you have to demand that you AREN'T IMPOTENT!... you are.

Everybody talks about how the arab street supports a winner.

What no-one talks about is how fricking fast the US drops a loser.

Eventually, the media will associate this film with “Christianity” with Christianity becoming the scapegoat.

Valerie Jarrett, a mere adviser to the president, reportedly has 6-8 Secret Service guards. Our ambassador to a Middle Eastern country with hostility and a civil war had less protection than a Presidential adviser in the US.

Susan Rice. Another World Government darling. - They just lie, lie, lie; and keep on repeating the lie. - “The ends justify the means.” - I’m afraid the ends they’re bringing down on our heads isn’t what they bargained for. - The alligator will eat them first; and they counted on taming the alligator. - We are being manipulated, or at least some of us are. - Oh, and you can’t believe your lyin’ eyes.

Hmm. . a “heinous and offensive video” huh? - I want to see that video and decide for myself. Is this more ginning up hatred against Christians with a contrived “video”? - Just WHO is this man who made the video, and who are his cohorts?

That’s right, Susan...everyone’s too stupid to realize the administration’s blaming everything on this video so you incompetent slackers have an excuse to not do your job.

We’re all falling for it.
