Skip to comments.GOP opposition to diplomat Rice begins to crack
Posted on 11/25/2012 10:17:22 AM PST by NKP_Vet
Republican opposition to the possible nomination of Susan Rice to be secretary of state is showing signs of cracking.
Arizona Sen. John McCain now says he'd be willing to meet with Rice, the current U.N. ambassador, and consider her much-scrutinized explanation about how the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, unfolded.
McCain has said GOP senators would do "whatever is necessary" to block Rice if President Barack Obama were to nominate her to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton at the State Department.
On Sunday, McCain was asked on "Fox News Sunday" if Rice could change his mind. McCain said "sure" and that he'd like to meet with her.
McCain and other Republicans have accused the White House of distorting the deadly Benghazi attack for political gain.

Makes one wonder why the GOP is still in any kind of power. McCain is in charge?
But he’s insane
We exalt him for having been shot down over VN, nothing more.
We don’t know what he did in prison.
Of course they begin to crack.
They are Pubbies. They fold. That’s what they do. It’s in their nature.
They just want to be liked by the popular kids across the aisle.
Remember what the Dems did to Ambassador Bolton, you spineless RINOS!
Cracks in the GOP are busting out all over. Losers.
The State Department has enough dead weight now it does not need Susan Rice - she will add little and we she know is easily manipulated. Where does she stand on protecting the United States Constitution? McCain is not to be trusted.
It was inevitable.
He was cheerleading to get involved in the Libyan mess in the first place. There was only so far he could take this before it started to splash back on him.
If we have a tax-evading Secretary of the Treasury, why not a Diplomat-killing Secretary of State..? And a Prez from Kenya.
Can these losers stand firm on ANYTHING? This is the easiest thing to oppose in the history of the country. The Democrat defense of racism and sexism is unbelievably weak, and Susan Rice is unbelievably incompetent.
Aren’t diplomats (paricularly to the U.N.) supposed to be professional liars? For this incompetence alone, Rice is disqualified...
Hah! Where does MCCAIN stand on protecting the Constitution?
When are we going to be just done with these GOPers?
McCain’s opposition to Rice is cracking just like his opposition to TARP in the midst of the 2008 election campaign. McCain is, at best, a senile old man who is incompetent to be a US Senator. Of course the “incompetent” label could be applied to about 80 of the 100 Senators.
McCain is one person—or two if you consider his puppydog Lindsay Graham. But the headline implies a bunch or them are cracking. If they cowtow to O’bummer because the DEMs play the race card again, we’ve got a long 4 yrs ahead-if not more. If it’s any consolation, McLame may be meeting with her so he can justify his vote against her.
So much for the myth that the skin color card no longer works.
Hey Arizona - its way past time for McLame to go into retirement.
GOP opposition cracking and McCain bending over for his reach around- Like the sun rising in the east...
This is Yahoo news if it was really a legitimate objective news otganization they’d be interviewing Connie Rice and aksing her if she was ever ordered to cover for Bush.
That won’t happen because first of all it would dispel the racist charge, and secondly brings into focus a state department head if approved won’t tell the American people the truth
Repeating a wedge propaganda piece that is passing itself off as an “insiders” news report should be called for what it is.... propaganda..
Is the entire GOP being blackmailed? The Supreme Court obviously is.
Right on! This is what the other faction of this corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" is supposed to do. Since most all are owned by the elites, which always get their way in the end, the job of the (R)s is to talk the point & then give in. Then talk it up as if they care about conservatism around election time but leave us conservatives high & dry the day after. A pox on all of them.
