Skip to comments.Obama To GOP On Susan Rice: "If They Want To Go After Somebody, They Should Go After Me"

"As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I'm happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and besmirch her reputation is outrageous," President Obama said at a press conference on Wednesday.

So much for reconciliation after an intense election. Thanks mr obama for your efforts to bring the country together and reach across the aisle. LOL
The Usurper is ineligible for POTUS or VPOTUS because he naturalized as a U.S. Citizen in 1983. Naturalized citizens have all the rights, privileges and obligations of every other, except they are ineligible for POTUS or VPOTUS.
Great suggestion, BHusseinO.
Let’s hope the R party leadership is listening... (they sure weren’t listening during the election when it could have done some good...)
Good. Impeach the traitor. Or hound him out of office like Nixon. Where’s Bernstein and Wooward when we need them?
If she didn’t have anything to do with it, why the hell did he send her to explain it?
Red meat just got thrown out to the lions.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well played Obama, he knows damn good and well no one will “go after” him.
You only need 41 votes to filibuster her nomination!!!
But that would have meant he had good character.
First of all, serious prayers for Bibi, the people and the sacred Jewish Homeland.
Secondly, the Marxist is going to get a return on his dare!
“If they want to go after somebody, they should go after me”
Maybe we will. Were you lying about the causes and the course of events at Benghazi? Are you still lying about the steps you took to cover up the timing and sources of your knowledge of what happened? Were arms twisted to make sure everybody was reciting the same story line? And if so, what was your Plan B when the inconsistencies began to pile up?
An even more basic question: Why was Benghazi under attack in the first place? Was it simply perceived weakness the attackers were exploiting, or did they have an objective? Was there, in fact, a rendition prison in the basement of the compound?
You have no idea how much speculation we can come up with, in the absence of explanations that do not insult our intelligence and reasoning capacity.
Certainly no-one in the “press” corps.
I agree. Go after him for destoying Ms. Rices reputation since he knew from “day one”. Remember “get the transcript Candy”? Here is a reminder of what he said:
The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror. And I also said that were going to hunt down those who committed this crime. And then a few days later, I was there greeting the caskets coming into Andrews Air Force Base and grieving with the families.
So who was he lying to, us or Ms Rice?????
Their objective was to kill Stevens.
Don’t worry Barry...We’re coming for ya!
What lions? Congress? McCain? Graham? The GOP?
Those pusillanimous retreads are just in it for themselves. If Obama wants Rice to be Secretary of State, she's in. Forty members of the GOP Senate are free to complain, but between them all, they'll see to it that no more than forty object.
