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 Americas 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?
Were not impotent, were 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.
Unfortunately with BO as the leader we are.
>> Were not impotent, were not even less popular, to challenge that assessment, Rice said in response.
A contradiction in certain circles.
I must be getting tired.
When I read the header I thought it said US not IMPORTANT in the ME.
Good Night. :)
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
Oh really, Susan???
More like Hussein isn’t as impo’tent as he thinks...
Condi has gone over to the dark side.
Well I’m sure her bos is trying to make us as weak as he can in the muslim world and elsewhere.
You’ve got a real problem if you have to assure people that you aren’t impotent.
Four years of amateur hour, holy smoke .....
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.
That is SUSAN Rice, not Condi.
That is SUSAN Rice, not Condi.
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.
different Rice. This one works for obama.
That’s Susan Rice, not Condi Rice.
Your comprehension sucks my friend
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.
Everybody talks about how the arab street supports a winner.
What no-one talks about is how fricking fast the US drops a loser.
"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..."What a lying sack of sh!+.
"No, really . . . . It wasn't you, Barry.
It was, uh...it was that... *cough* ...video.
That's it! It killed the mood..."
Haven’t seen the light, have we?
See the difference?
Eventually, the media will associate this film with “Christianity” with Christianity becoming the scapegoat.
What it’s not Condi, it’s Susan Rice’
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.
This is the Obama mantra one lame excuse after another:
Dry Weather, Hurricane, European economy, the Congress, dumb UTube clips, ..... George Bush.
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?
Perhaps Susan needs to massage The Messiah’s Foreign Policy with her hand?
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.
When you aren’t impotent, everyone knows, and you don’t even need to say it.
That’s racist to draw an allusion to images of a virile black man.
