Obama's choice to replace Hillary? Susan Rice
American Thinker ^ | 11/08/2012 | Rick Moran

Posted on 11/08/2012 4:31:28 PM PST by SeekAndFind

Bloomberg News is reporting that UN Ambassador Susan Rice is the favorite to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she steps down as expected sometime in January.

Six current or former White House officials, who all spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said Rice remains close to President Barack Obama and shares many of his views on foreign policy. They emphasized that the president hasn't made a final decision, and Clinton may remain in her post for some months into Obama's second term.

Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley and other officials said Obama's first move will be choosing a successor to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. He also may need to find successors to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, the officials said.

Rice is thought to be the president's preferred choice over two other strong candidates, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry of Massachusetts and National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, according to the current and former administration officials.

Rice, who also worked on the presidential campaigns of Kerry and former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, is known for her strong personality and passionate defense of Obama's foreign policy at Security Council and inter-agency meetings.

Its just like the punk president to give the finger to the nation by nominating his Benghazi stooge for SOS.

Susan Rice? Please proceed, Mr. President. That would be a big-time unforced error.

well, after all Rice did all the interviews after the Sep 11 2012 event and she fully spouted the cover story that had to be cooked up by V Jarrett and Axelrod, so she’d be an excellent “tool” to move over to SoS role.

Obummer will just move around his folks like they’re little chess pieces so that it looks like change. But it will still be smoke and mirrors, all fanfare and no substance.

It’ll still be Mr Obummer in the oval office and his communist buddies running the asylum. Animal Farm lives!

The world goes from smirking at the USA to horselaughter at our expense.

With this appointment the USA will be at an all-time low in terms of our influence in and respect of the world.

I need to dust off my books on the fall of the Roman Empire.

This is just too closely tracking that spiral: perfumed eunuchs, clowns and doofusii given positions of power. The failure of arms and the besmirching of the institutions of marriage, hearth and home.

I just have not decided if zero is nero or elagabalus...But women own his azz.

Another evil, lying, scumbag, Muslim loving b****. Elections certainly do have consequences and it looks like we are really effed.
I’m just about ready to watch this mother f-ing country burn to the ground so that eventually we can rebuild from the bottom up and get rid of all of these bastards.
I am finding very little to hope for at this point and don’t see a silver lining in any of these clouds. Sorry to be so pessimistic but I krpy my chin up and thought that we would win right up until Tuesday night and now I am shell shocked just like our weakass candidate.

Read her bio. Elitist parents, Ivy League, this language and that foreign posting. Raised from birth to be a ‘diplomat’ and probably wouldn’t know how to put air in a tire.

Her already-proven willingness to deliver a complete and total falsehood should scuttle her ambitions.

“We have a winner”, says Obama. America has two losers and will pay for it in more lives.

Remember the Benghazi 4.

Wow. She goes on five Sunday morning news and LIES to the American public then gets rewarded for it. 0bama got rewarded for abandoning four brave Americans to die in Benghazi. Eric Holder will be rewarded (SCOTUS) for trying to crush American firearms dealers by running guns to Mexican drug cartels.

Stick your knife in America and get a prize!!!

Come to think of it, 0bama said ‘If you go out there and lie for me to save my re-election, I’ll give you a top agency slot if re-elected’.. And she said, ‘You better, or I’m telling..’

Sorry for another post, but.. Maybe 0bama is floating this now so STUPID AMERICA AT LARGE will think that the Republicans are attacking her over Benghazi to stop her from getting the SD job because she’s black. LOL This is how the left operates. AND THE REPUBLICANS WILL BE EQUALLY STUPID ENOUGH TO ACQUIESCE and back off of her. ARGHHH!!!

Interesting. Another black female liberal Stanford University alumni Secretary of State Rice. Only this one won't have a bunch of freepers drooling over the thought of her running for President / Vice-President.

“Understand yourself and understand your enemy, and in one hundred battles, you will never be defeated.”

I guess we don’t understand our enemy. We keep assuming that experience, intellect and ability play into Democrat job selection. What counts is loyalty.....personal and Democrat party loyalty. Then, are they shady so they can be controlled? Will they split the take and split it properly? See anything about knowledge, skills and abilities? Totally secondary. The Obama administration is a collection of grifters. Shoot, get together 40 or 50 million bucks and you could probably get him to be a Republican.

“Do not understand yourself or your enemy and you will always be defeated.”

It follows that Hillary would step down now so she can prepare to ascend to the White House in 2016. This is New America... Hillary will overwhelm any token Republican opposition and win in a walk with at least 60% of the vote.

Perfect

If you’re going to f-up, f-up big time.

My bets are impeachment in the house with the senate failing to removing him.

Just like lovable old Bubba.

Great minds and all....I have been thinking that Obama most closely resembles Elagabalus. An effeminate prince from the East who rises to the crown almost by mistake and hardly of his own accord. Completely incompetent and an utter affront to the Roman legions....

Susan Rice is also known for working with Sandy Berger, the fellow who stole materials from the National Archives, and I wouldn't doubt if some of that material may have pertained to her and to say, bombing aspirin factories in Sudan.

Maybe it would. Is John Kerry on the record anywhere spouting that absurd video story? if he was not, then maybe he fed her the video story to make her look stupid so he could be Sec of State.

I never, ever thought I would be supporting John “Look at my Purple Heart!” Kerry for anything. But he would be less of a disaster than Susan “I'll Say Anything You Want, Barack” Rice.

I can understand wanting the chickens to come home to roost on the economic level (spending, debt, unemployment, hyperinflation) sooner rather than later, so we can get the pain over with and maybe rebuild while there are a still lot of people who remember how America's economy should work.

But I can't support anything that will lead to even MORE of our soldiers dying, and maybe Israel being nuked. Not to mention more Islamic terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. (Which will be labeled “workplace violence” “lone wolf attacks by disturbed individuals” or “protests against insults to The Religion of Peace.”) Susan Rice as SOS will embolden our enemies more than almost any other choice. Unless Barack decides to really double-down and nominate Huma Abedin.

Hmmm...maybe I shouldn't have said that publicly. I don't want to give Obama any ideas!

Susan Rice? What a larf!

If Obama appointed Condolezza Rice, then we might at least set the Russians straight.

This is the era of surrender monkey diplomacy.And the world will catch on fire.
