Susan Rice was not lying but put a softer touch on the September 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said Friday.
"I'm not saying she lied, I'm just saying she didn't tell [the truth], Chambliss said on MSNBC. She put a softer touch on what the real facts were. That's not lying.

The Stupid Party strikes again.
Somebody wake Chambliss up, give him his prune juice, and tell him that saying that the attack was due to a video when it was a pre-planned terror attack is LYING.
She put a softer touch on what the real facts were. That’s not lying.
Wrong. It IS lying.
that IS lying in my book
Chambliss, the senior Republican on Senate Intelligence, said the public would have been better served if Rice had given a more accurate account. He argued that by the time Rice gave her account, the administration already knew it was not a terrorist attack.
He’s afraid of being accused of “warring against women”. Pitiful.
“I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.”
Dear Senator, no, the *itch lied.
Did he wake up with a horse head in his bed?
What he meant to say was that she was “actively engaged in truth modification”....
This is why Republicans are losers.
Seriously? Why are the GOP wimps???
Mr. Orwell, paging George Orwell!
What Rice said was the White House line. It was false, whether she knew it and intentionally lied or not.
Peter King would not comment on the aspect of who called for back-up and who denied cross-border support for the 41 Americans in Benghazi.
It seems to me that if Petraeus exonerated Obama, that King would come forward with that story, or the dems in the room would.
Now, if Petraeus said Obama left those Americans to die at the hands of terrorists, then that information would be handled in a very special way. It would not be leaked by the Dems, and the republicans would have to have several meetings on what to do with it.
THIS IS A CASE OF THE DOG (DEMS) NOT BARKING!
“”I’m not saying she lied, I’m just saying she didn’t tell [the truth], Chambliss said on MSNBC.”
Hey, Saxby, I’ll just put a “softer touch” on your statement by saying you’re not telling the truth in saying that “Rice didn’t lie.”
Do us all a favor and drop the circumlocutions and euphemisms, Saxby. You’re dealing with a thug regime here.
So is he saying it was a white lie....or is that considered racist?
“This is why Republicans are losers.”
Peter King was just interviewed by Fox and he appeared to be ‘sheepish’ to me. He is usually aggressive and a no nonsense guy. Wonder what was really said behind closed doors?
Spoken like a politician who may not be able to distinguish truth from lies anymore....The intent was to deceive, so she WAS too lying.
Obama said that he called it a terrorist attack right away. He also said don’t attack rice but go after him because he sent her out with the info. Therefore BOTH rice and obama lied to the american people.
What is it with this cowardice about saying the word “lie”?
Boy, they sure know how to ruin a good phrase - first the words liberal, compassion, then gay, now softer touch is a lib euphemism.
Reminds me of how the great Clinton’s Big Media cheerleaders would tell us in advance which defenses he would use in order to prepare us for new truths, like “it was a private, personal affair” (except for Petraeus) and “oral sex isn’t sex”.
(A) Trailer for a movie no one ever heard of or
She chose or was instructed by her Boss to chose (A).
Curiously, information was released yesterday that former CIA Director Petraeus will testify that he knew it was (B) almost immediately.
Those who chose (A) and repeated that false report for WEEKS after the Benghazi attacks were lying and they knew from the start that they were lying.
Upcoming “softer touch” political cartoons should be interesting....
Didn’t Hillary Clinton also tell the same tales?
And didn’t she also say something to the father of one of the SEALs at the ceremony about the film maker that looking back now means that she already knew it wasn’t because of the film? And Didn’t Hilllary also make some video commercials blaming the you tube video?
A lie is a lie. A “softer touch” of the truth is a lie. An omission is a lie.
What in the world? Do any Chambliss staffers read this site? If so, could you tell us if he’s having some sort of medical problem or if he’s always been ‘off’ but you’ve managed to keep it hidden.
This is really ridiculous.
NOTHING is a “lie” for this administration.
“Hussein cannot tell a lie” has always been the story, because he (NOW, since last month) acts PRESIDENTIAL.
She lied about why they died.
Rice is just another lying, inept Affirmative Action appointee - part of the Black Mafia now ruling the country.
“soft touch Saxby” would never accuse a lady of lying, no sir, that language is simply not allowed in the Capitol Hill Gentleman’s Club, aka the US Senate
Is he outta his flipping mind??? What, he’s afraid of being called racist because some black race-baiter says it’s racist to say she lied? OMG.
Does anybody still wonder why we lost the election or why we get absolutely nowhere with a party like this?
The political elite protect protect each other when it gets right down to it. Constituents be damned.
Chambliss is nothing more than another corrupt Washington insider from the band of criminals in that cesspool.
Reminds me of Sandy Berger and him just being “sloppy”
Saxby runs for the hills like a scalded dog.
Orwellian Newsspeak. Now lies are just softer versions of the truth or simply editing errors. Speaking truth apparently is a revolutionary act.
He is a LYING SAXBY OF SH!T
Hey, Saxby... 4 Amercians are dead. They’re not “a softer version of dead”. They’re just dead...and I’m sure they want someone to fight for the truth over their deaths. Obviously, you (Saxby) care more about political gibberish ...

Is that like not saying you are ‘knocked up’, but you are ‘with child’???
Senator, Rice lied. By omission or commission, she lied.
If your child told you such stories, you would be incensed...and that is within your family—not National Security issues.
No wonder the populace that votes Republican is disgusted.
They’re not the “stupid party”. They just won an election that never should have been won and they did it by running against a former President with an average unemployment rate of 4.7%.
“Theyre not the stupid party. They just won an election that never should have been won and they did it by running against a former President with an average unemployment rate of 4.7%.”
I don’t know what the 2nd sentence means at all, but anytime the Republicans make things this easy for the Dems to do their evil deeds, I will call them the stupid party.
And I think Thomas Sowell is great, too. ;-)
