Susan Rice Is Unqualified To Be Secretary Of State
IBD EDITORIALS ^ | November 28, 2012

Posted on 11/28/2012 4:11:19 PM PST by raptor22

Benghazi Scandal: "Her meeting with GOP senators begs the question that if all she can do is read talking points handed to her by the White House then perhaps she should be the next White House press secretary."

The above observation, courtesy of Richard Grenell, who served as spokesman for four U.S. Ambassadors to the U.N., is the flip side of our view that Susan Rice, who was sent out on five Sunday talk shows to explain Benghazi by a president who says she had "nothing to do with Benghazi," is as qualified to be the next secretary of state as a fellow parrot of the false narrative that the terrorist attack was caused by a video, current White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Her meeting with GOP Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte went as badly as her talk show audition for Hillary Clinton's replacement. She is clearly not ready for her close-up.

Sen. Ayotte, R.-N.H., told CNN's Wolf Blitzer after the glorified meet-and-greet that Rice "misled the American public," and pledged to put a hold on Rice's nomination if it came to the Senate, at least until all of the questions surrounding Benghazi have been answered: Sen. Graham, R-South Carolina, has said, rightfully we believe, that Rice is "disconnected to reality" and disqualified from a "promotion" to secretary of state.

Isn’t it “disconnected FROM reality”. Sheesh, can’t the Republicans ever get their shots through the hoop without hitting the rim?

She is a known, proven, on the record, on the record, on the record, on the record, on the record liar. ( 5 Sunday lies)

No world leader worth a damn would believe a word she says

To be honest, no one in this administration is qualified for any office - including the POTUS.

Rice is either a dupe or a willing tool of the Obama administration.

My guess is on the latter.

If she gets nominated the first three question she must answer must be:

Who gave the order to our military to “stand down” and NOT implement plans to rescue our men in Benghazi on 9-11-12?

When?

Why?

And then follow up as appropriate.

Susan Rice, it turns out, is exactly the expression the Current Regime wants to put on its face. Distinctly inferior to The Won, and a reliable talking head to send out to the various news outlets.

Besides, after a few moments of dismay, she almost surely has Lindsey Graham’s vote for confirmation.

Qualification for the position is not even a consideration with the White Hut of Bronco Bama. Susan Rice has the full faith and support of Valerie Jarrett.

She’s a liar who uses the race card to hide her ignorance. I think Barry can do better than Rice. Of course, when has the messiah ever listened to us. Good luck with that. He’ll put her in there just to get in the faces of Americans. He loves to do that.

She should resign her current job. This person is in a top position now, and she has not uttered one word to stop those who say any criticism of her is racism.

How can we function with such people in important positions? This racism scam is as dangerous as her Benghazi scam.

She’s totally unqualified, but then, so’s everyone else in Obozo’s administration. Why would he pick someone who’s better than he is?

That's my opinion, humble as it is.

They must plant that divisive seed. These are the kids who could never follow the thread of the argument in school, now all grown up and resorting to the same kind of childish behavior.

Susan Rice is unqualified.
Yeah? Yer mother wears Army boots.

What I think is happening here is, Obama plans to withdraw the nomination of Ambassador Rice “relunctantly”, because of the Republican ruckus, and will replace her with someone whose qualifications remain indisputably above reproach: The Traitor, John Kerry. Classic bait-’n-switch.
