Obama to McCain: You canít stop Susan Rice from being Secretary of State
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/14/2012 | Joel Gehrke

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 Rice’s critics “have a problem with me.”

“When they go after the UN ambassador apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve 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 that’s not a determination I’ve made yet.”

Obama was responding to a press conference held by three GOP senators this morning. “We will do whatever’s necessary to block the nomination that’s 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.

Dow down almost 200...185.15 to be exact. The second term is not off to a good start for King Kenyan.

King Obama telling McCain, once again, that He Won! I’m not encouraged that McCain will follow through. He’s probably just angling for some gift from ‘nice guy’ Barry Obama.

Sometimes I wonder if this is Kabuki opera and they’ve already decided at the Washington bars to let Susan get rejected as a kind of quid pro quo between the Republicans and Democrats.

Wow. Zero sure is full of himself, especially since he knows he has media backing, who will cover him on everything.

Go for it! Let Bam-Bam appoint the stupidest, most incompetent, most leftist ideologically driven freaks to every office in his regime. No sense trying to enforce sanity on the aggressively insane ... let them run completely amok, and crash spectacularly.

I'm with you.

Sabotage - with or without our help - seems to be the best strategy.

Republicans ought to just needle this a-hole until he launches into a profanity laced tirade and bursts into tears.

Now that's funny!

Ron White: "I think because of the unrest in the Middle East, we're all becoming more aware of the globe. I found out the other day there really is a place called Bumfuk, Egypt. And the only way to get there is to go up Shit Creek."

Two of the lamest Republican members of the Senate. They will give mere lip service and then cave as always and she will be a slam dunk.

This proposal makes Jimmy Carter look like the very model of gravitas.

It's completely appropriate. The Worst President Ever should have the Worst Cabinet Ever. Let's go for it ... appoint the clinically insane to high office. Let's see what the demonicRat Party is really all about. If we're gonna crash and burn, let's do it up right.

Care for a beer?

In other words, the Senate and House no longer matter.

As predicted. He was re-elected, and empowered. Now, no one can stop him or his minions with completing his destruction of the US.

Obama is as delusional as Biden ~ call this MADMEN AT THE TOP.

Susan Rice would be much better off fleeing town.

When it comes to organizing a Gang Of something to muck up the works of the Senate, McCain is your guy.

They will give mere lip service

Well, they haven't given lip service so far on Ben Ghazi.

In fact, they have been as or more outspoken than anyone.

Your tagline is a perfect description of the Barry 0dinga regime.
