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.

I would advise people to stand back a way from Obama -

His head is getting so big it’s ready to explode.

America used to neutralize traitors like Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen; now we glorify traitors like Rice and Osama. If this nation had any sense left, we would be howling for the blood of these Islamofascist double agents.

Except for the nuclear option, they truly can block Susan Rice’s appointment.

I’d prefer he nominate Colin Powell, and I’m sure since his Pal Powell needs a chance to redeem himself from those nasty wmds that Barack will give Powell the break he needs to cleanse his historic record. /sarc

That's the spirit!

Al Sharpton for Attorney General. Barney Frank for Secretary of HHS. Al Gore for Secretary of Energy.

Seriously ... Barry S0et0r0 is going to screw things up royally; let him, and his toadies, and his handlers own the whole mess.

Popcorn.

Beer.

It's what's for dinner.

Well yes. Along with 50 plus million American voters, 95 percent of the military, almost every business owner in America and unborn babies......

Time to put Susan Rice on the stand. Ask her under oath if she was told to say ‘protest over a video’. Then ask her if she was promised a promotion in exchange for lying for her boss. She KNEW what she said wasn’t true.

Might as well get under his skin until he acts stupidly.
That’s what Romney failed to do, because it wasn’t in his nature. But now the GOP has nothing to lose. Game on.

2/3 senate approval required for an appointee.

He'll just appoint her during Congress' frequent recess breaks... and who's going to challenge him on that?

didn’t Susan Rice create the “wall” that prevented the CIA from telling the FBI about the 9-11 terrorists??

How much more would you need to know to keep her out of government than that??

Mccain should agree. Half the country has a problem with obama. Nothing new there. Filibuster the nomination. Go nuclear. Shut down the govt as far as I am concerned.

I doubt that Susan Rice had to be promised anything to lie for the regime.

This SHOULD be grounds for impeachment. 0bama told Rice to address the American people on the Sunday news programs. She said 'a protest over a video' yet 0bama said in the last debate(when he implored Candy Crowley to grab the script to prove it) that he called Benghazi an 'act of terror'.

This man CANNOT have it both ways.. Sometimes a terrorist attack, sometimes a protest. ON SUNDAY OBAMA KNEW THIS WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK YET HE SENT SUSAN TO GO LIE THAT IT WAS A PROTEST.

Why? COVER-UP!!!

Red Reid doesn’t want his planned nuclear option wasted on this mendacious sister. Obama, Dingy and Princess—hard to tell who is on top at any given time with that sick menage a trois.

Apparently 0coward thinks that Congress is powerless now. I hope he nominates Rice and sends her up to the Hill to be vetted. She will be under oath and they can ask her anything they want. Grill her thoroughly on her role in the Benghazi attack. The draw down of security, the gun running, the failure to send a rescue mission and the ‘video’ coverup hoax.
