WASHINGTON—Ambassador Susan Rice's attempt to repair her standing with Senate Republicans fell short Tuesday, as a trio of GOP senators emerged from a meeting with her even more harshly critical of the comments she made following the U.S. consulate attack in Libya.

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, a candidate to succeed departing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, met with senators Tuesday on Capitol Hill.

One of the senators, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, said she would try to block the confirmation of Ms. Rice or another nominee to succeed departing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "My view is we should hold on this until we get sufficient information," she said.

Time will tell, Republican “senators.”

Your words have the believability of an Obamadork birth certificate.

Who becomes Sec of State will become the defacto President of the United States. The SoS will have Obama’s Certificate of Loss of Nationality at the disposal. Either Obama is not a U.S. Citizen or he naturalized in 1983.

defacto President John F. Kerry.

I think what happened here is that she was supposed to go in there, say a few of the right things, and play the DC game. Then they would come out and say how they still have a few reservations, but that she “addressed many of their concerns”.

This woman is dumb as a box of rocks. She has riden a wave of family connections and race to levels she has no business in. She also has a reputation as being hardheaded when wrong. Thats a great combo, stupid AND hardheaded.

Her wiki,
“She has had a most extraordinary career. With only 18 months’ experience in the workplace as a consultant for McKinsey, she was given senior jobs at the National Security Council from 1993 to 1997; first as Director for International Organizations and Peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995 and then, with only three and a half years working after getting her degree from Oxford and having never worked in Africa or had any prior work experience on the continent, she was promoted to become Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for African Affairs from 1995 to 1997. Previous occupants of that position had been officials with long experience in Africa such as Ambassador Hank Cohen and Ambassador David Miller, both of whom came to the job with decades of experience.”

She was also the central player in stopping Sudans attempt to give us Osama Bin Laden in ‘96.

I think she got in there, and was so obviously incompetent and dishonest, that even our rino aisle crossing Senators couldnt support her.

Since when does the senate have any say in Obama’s appointments? Hussein will ignore the senate, knowing Republicans are too gutless to say anything about it!

Here’s how stupid and incompetent she is. Even though she’s a black, female, leftist, democrat, she still can’t even find a way to make her wiki page into a puff piece like most democrats easily do.

Thats usually an easy fix for a dem.

Sen. Ayotte hasn’t seen Obama’s Certificate of Loss of Nationality. I have.

Sen. Ayotte has put the pieces of the puzzle together and figured out Obama is either a naturalized U.S. Citizen or not a U.S. Citizen. She wants Hillary to stay put and answer a few simple questions on Obama’s passport record and explain why she didn’t come forward with the incriminating evidence 4 years ago.

Hillary wants to retire to private life immediately.

You’ve got my attention, how could that connect to this mess? If it could trigger a real look at the deception fortress of Obama’s past, well prayers answered is all I can say.
I am wary of this whole set up. I can see it now “what better example can you find for ending the filibuster then these racist Republicans blocking a qualified African- American woman from advancing”.

Nonsense. If that was really true -- if the SoS has access the goods on Obama, and can wield power as "de facto President of the United States," there's no way in h*ll Hillary would be walking away from the job.

Why would I apologize because you posted a link to the Wikipedia entry for Certificate of Loss of Nationality? How does that link prove that (a) such a certificate was issued regarding Obama, or (b) the SoS is in possession of such a certificate for Obama, and is thus "de facto President"?

I'll ask again - if the SoS is in the position to act as "de facto President," why is Hillary (e.g., the most power-hungry person in Washington, and that's saying a lot) walking away from the job?

You are spot on with that question!

I think Hillary is distancing herself so when the $h!t hits the fan, she will not get covered in it.

Either that or she’s guilty of something and has fled the country under cover of ‘diplomatic duties that take her abroad’.

I’m not wrong. Whomever becomes SoS will own Obama.

Hillary had a Federal lawsuit against her when she became SoS over possession of FBI Files. The suit was dropped when Obama became confident she wasn’t going to expose Obama’s ineligibility.

Obama trusts Rice. Obama cannot allow Kerry to become SoS because Kerry is ambitious.

Sven,

Below is a note I just sent to Senator Ayotte; it should be interesting what she says:

Sen. Ayotte,
Many thanks for keeping the pressure on concerning Benghazi.
I do have a related question:
Have you (or anyone associated with you) made enquiries concerning Mr. Obama’s citizenship records?

I’m not doubting that Hillary agreed not to pursue 0’s citizenship in return for having the lawsuit tossed/quashed/removed.

I’m wanting to see docs showing 0’s citizenship trail.

FR mail welcome :)

Think it through. Kerry won’t make the documents public until he’s ready. McCain, Graham, and Ayotte must have Kerry in the State Department to control Obama. Obama cannot allow Kerry in as SoS because Kerry is ambitious.

Most likely resolution is for Obama to determine what McCain, Graham and Ayotte want and provide it to them. Their objections to Rice will disappear.

Meanwhile, Obama wants Kerry to be Defense Secretary. Kerry could help Obama by publicly embracing a Sec of Defense nomination. Yet, Kerry remains silent.
