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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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?

“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.

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)!

This is beyond ridiculous. Nothing will happen. There are no Republicans. Only Republicans In Name Only.

I have stopped wasting my energy on thinking that at least ONE on the republican ‘figures’ would actually do something.

When years pass, people will think and ask - Why did no one step up and stop this mess?

-- This man CANNOT have it both ways.. Sometimes a terrorist attack, sometimes a protest. --

Carney has already made that assertion. ANYTIME a US facility is attacked, it is an act of terrorism.

Obama will successfully dodge the underlying issues.

And if there was gunrunning to Al Queda going on, that'll be kept out of view as a state secret.

I think those rules were in place before Clinton, going back to the Church Committee years.

Rice did her best to protect bin Laden though. Apparently, while in the Clinton administration, Sudan wanted to turn bin Laden over, but Rice and Sandy Berger objected.

Nice twist that.

Only if the House and Senate can't agree on a time for adjournment.

he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper

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.”

yes, I do have a problem with you, Barry!! Susan Rice is a LIBERAL Anti-Israel Jerk! of course, so are you!!

Nope. It's simple majority vote. They can be filibustered, requiring 60 votes, under current rules. That's why GOP judges and others had so much trouble under W.

I know in Michigan we can do Recall elections of federal elected officials. Could Michiganders recall Stabenow and Levin and strive to replace them with Conservaive Republicans.

also Odumbo forgets if persists in his stupidity that he can lord it over US, in kind the taxpayers can just forget to pay taxes. How could the IRS round up every taxpayer whom refuses to pay tax? Yes I know Odumbo would just print more money.

Lastly in Odumbo’s power grab he will overreach and cause to alienate himself from the Republicans and nothing will be achieved unless it is EXECUTIVE ORDERS. The American can refuse the EO and state no way this is not what you were elected to do. He does not have the entire country backing him. If he continues to piss off the people he will only screw the democrats that much more. Just watch Odumbo will fall flat on his face.
