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.

that long? wow.. you give them credit.
Recess appointment is my guess
In high school we called people like this punks and called their bluff. Now we have a punk as president.
For pete’s sake, when will Freepers stop criticizing elected officials when they actually do something GOOD?
It doesn’t matter what they’ve done before: encourage them to stay the course on this one and really fight.
People can have a change of heart, at least on one issue, and I think Obama’s actions have been so blatantly anti-American and evil that even some of the reach-across-the-aisle types and possibly even some Dems are getting uneasy.
Criticize their bad actions, but encourage the good.
He’s not qualified for that job either.
Recess appointment...well, this would be a pretty outrageous one, but then, he’s never been stopped before.
>>Play the black card all you want whats the worse they can do now?
He can give us the full Blackocracy and they can preside over the crash. Then, we can rise up from the ashes and make Biden’s prediction come true.
That was Jamie Gorelick a Clinton toadie and just as bad as Rice.
Republicans will reach across the aisle, or Obama will make her a czar and bypass confirmation altogether.
No! 2/3rds is needed for treaties and constitutional amendments. Only a majority is needed to confirm an appointee. If McCain can organize 41 GOPers to filibuster then he can stop the nomination from proceeding, but I doubt he could get 20. Of course if things had turned out we’d have the majority but Akin and Mourdock killed that as did losing in Dakota and Montana and Mass.That would have been 3 pickups and two holds. Alas it was not meant to be, still it’s nice to see McCain show a biy of the old fire.
They must all be in it together. How anyone can be in the same room with Obama and not hurl themselves at his head- is beyond understanding.
I have no faith in John McCain to do anything. None of them are going to do anything. They are all along for a ride on the gravy train.
It is us against them.
Why do I get those two confused?
I thought guns were the last line of defense.
I suppose that the Republicans could ask her to explain why she went on all the tv shows and claimed that the movie was responsible for the Benghazi attack, who told her to say that, where she got her information?
McCain faulted Rice for saying that the Benghazi terrorist attack grew out of a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam Youtube video.
My, how they reveal the truths about themselves! Of course we have a problem with EVERYONE who lied (lies)!
Prediction: By Valentines Day 2014 you are going to see openings for Obama cabinet positions being posted on Monster.com
We DO have a problem with you Obama? You’re president, not king you a$$!@#$. We aren’t intimidated by you either. Rice’s nomination needs to be blocked, and senate Republicans need to show some spine for once and DO IT.
...if our TEA Party representatives can't replace balless Boehner in January they can go ahead and join the godam GOP-e for all they are worth...
...the fascist tyrant MUST be impeached!!!
No, that was Jamie Gorelick you are thinking about, but Rice is just as corrupt.
