GOP senators: We’re “more disturbed” after meeting with Amb. Rice than we were before

United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice has been catching all kinds of flak from Republicans about her Sunday talk show appearances in which it now looks an awful lot like she willfully participated in purposefully misling the American people about the true nature of the 9/11/12 attacks in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in four American deaths. At her own behest, some of her harshest critics — Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Kelly Ayotte — agreed to meet with her and hear her out on Tuesday morning, along with acting CIA Director Michael Morell, at a closed-door briefing. Apparently, her self-defense was unconvincing:

Nothing disturbs me more than news reports that some RINO Senators are "disturbed".

Just wondering if they would be "disturbed" by a bunch of consituents showing up with torches, pitchforks, tar and feathers.

The problem is....she can’t explain why so many CIA guys were in one location, their mission, their purpose, etc. Nor can she explain why no real protection was offered to the Ambassador.

In the end...she was the only one willing in the administration to face cameras and just read a script...mostly because she knew absolutely nothing to start with.

The fear of telling the ultimate purpose of the CIA mission there....I believe...is what drives this cat-and-mouse game now.

Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Kelly Ayotte just stepped it up a notch. I doubt that they would have done that if they had been presented any sort of plausible spin today.

The RINO squad is disturbed because she/this admin can’t even come up with a even barely plausible reason/excuse for their lies.

The RINO’s will vote to confirm her anyways... “with reservations”... lol

The bottom line is that our UN ambassador was telling lies to give Obama cover in the final days of the campaign. She need not have bothered. The MSM was not going to investigate or cover a story that would embarass Obama or risk his reelection. They knew she was a liar. They gladly gave her a forum to deceive the American people.

See the sleeping GOP senators in their winged chairs, their feet up on ottomans.

Something disturbs them and they start for a moment.

“What? Eh, uh, hmph, gub gub hmmm.”

And they go back to sleep.

Trivial people, the GOP Senators. Small speed bumps in the pages of history.

Why did Obama use American personnel, money, equipment and facilities to throw Gaddafi out of power and into the arms of murdering rapists? Not much to be proud of there. If he wanted to get rid of a bad actor, then how about Castro? The Democrats wet themselves over Reagan supporting insurgents fighting communists in our backyard in Nicaragua. But, they just smile and nod at Obama helping thugs in Libya? Doesn’t make any sense. It’s like granny complaining about the girls flirting on the next block while she’s turning tricks in her front yard.

At least we can see a number of both sides of Congress not wanting this issue to come to an abrupt ending with no one being held responsible for the deaths of those four Americans.
Call the three sited in the article "wimps", "RINOS" if one must. But at least their keeping the issue alive instead of letting it get buried.

Think about this fact, many of the Obamanistas are former Clintonistas...and every bit as corrupt.

In any dispute between two parties, The Won always sides with the more-anti-American side.

There's not a Cuban opposition party more anti-American than Castro, so there's no point in 0bama deposing Castro.
