Skip to comments.Obama to McCain: You canít stop Susan Rice from being Secretary of State
Posted on 11/14/2012 12:57:25 PM PST by mojito
President Obama, irritated by Republican pledges to prevent Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice from receiving a promotion, said that Rices critics have a problem with me.
When they go after the UN ambassador apparently because they think shes an easy target, then theyve got a problem with me, Obama told reporters today. And should I choose if I think that she would be the best person to serve America in the capacity of the State Department [head] then I will nominate her, but thats not a determination Ive made yet.
Obama was responding to a press conference held by three GOP senators this morning. We will do whatevers necessary to block the nomination thats within our power as far as Susan Rice is concerned, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters today during a press conference on Capitol Hill. McCain faulted Rice for saying that the Benghazi terrorist attack grew out of a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam Youtube video.

I’m sick of this Ulsterman.
I can write the same stuff gleaned from news sources and pretty much what he writes, we already have in the way of information.
Still, for those who can’t read everything we do he/she may be a good source of the condensed version of events.
Thank you for the post...
Let those states that wish to leave secede from the United States
these ignificent oligarchs are wasting there filibuster on this ! and we got Supreme Court nominations looming
the UN is a barking Chihuahua who cares about the ambassador to them !
Interesting that Sandy Berger should be mentioned...he was obviously trying to remove the record of this failure when he stole those documents from the National Archives - for which he was never adequately prosecuted because Bush believed in extending a gentlemanly, professional courtesy and simply never held any Dems responsible for their crimes.
I wonder if something similar is happening here? Perhaps the documents that Broadwell had on her computer (which she says she did not get from Petraeus, but from other sources open to her) are in some way related to the backstory of Benghazi, and this is now being sanitized.
no, no, no, she’s already the ambassador to the untied nations. that’s not what this is about. our new jimmy carter wants her to be peter-principled into the secretary of state’s office.
Obama may be able to duck and from all the Benghazi hearings
in the House, but he can’t keep her from confirmation hearings.
She will have to show up under oath, unless he makes her a recess appointment
GET HER UNDER OATH
Here are the Republicans on the Foreign Relations Committee
(prior to election) I think they are the ones who will do the confirmation hearings
James E. Risch
James M. Inhofe
McCain should ask Darrel ISSA to draw up articles of impeachment for Susan Rice. She was caught outright lying to the People concerning matters of national Security, and matters of Life and Death of US Citizens.
Obama has to be beat like a drum.Sooner the better.
You are right, but IMHO McCain doesn’t even have to wait for her nomination. He should be asking Issa to draw up articles of Impeachment in the House , right now. Rice lied to the people repeatedly and extensively on matters of national security and on matters of the life and death of the Benghazi 4.
Thats impeachable.No need to wait.
Almost a half a million new unemployment claims this morning... I hate the press.
The Republicans should all wear jumbo sized ears to the state of the union address.
If asked why they should say “We just want to listen closely to see if ANY truth comes out of his mouth.”
I know that you are correct but I pray they surprise me.
I am not dreaming... I am praying!
This is a little off topic but one of the things we have seen since the Kenyan took office is the explosion of something called the Knock-out game.This is an activity in which a group of black youths sucker punch passersby (white or Asian) with the goal of knocking the person unconscious. The most recent story about this is at http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/race-based-knockout-game-meets-the-moms/
The MSM are silent on this for fear of being tarred as racist.
I have written the St. Louis office of the FBI to see if these crimes qualify as a hate crime, and would encourage everone to contact their Congressional representatives to get some attention directed to this.
No, simple majority for confirmation of Rice; it would take six Democrat defectors to stop her. She can’t be stopped unless something comes out that causes Obama to desert her.
I imagine that in 2013 a lot of us are going to wish Pelosi was the Speaker once more, as Boehner is so non-Republican.
DOW down over 700 points since 11-6.
You know what?
Your tagline is spot on.
ALLEN WEST FOR SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE.
If he wins this battle for re-election, we should push the House to oust Boehner and elect West as Speaker.
That would make dem and RINO heads explode, and he would be an amazing SoH. Combative, determined, and not able to be pushed around.
And he wouldn’t “cry” like the current watery-eyed, weak-kneed fool.
Yeah...I know, good luck...
