The GOPís bizarre attack on Susan Rice (Flashback)
The Washington Post ^ | November 22, 2012

SINCE THE Senate is solely responsible for the confirmation of Cabinet officers, it’s not often that members of the House of Representatives jump into a debate about the nomination of a secretary of state — particularly before there has been a nomination. That’s one of the reasons a letter sent to President Obama this week by 97 House Republicans, challenging his potential choice of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice for the State Department job, is remarkable.

Another is blatant disregard of established facts

And the Grand Finale:

Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African American woman?

You’d think that before launching their broadside, members of Congress would have taken care not to propagate any falsehoods of their own.

But will the Washington Post editorial staff ever admit their error and apologize to the Republicans they libled?

Does a bear $hit in the toilet...???

Isn't it a wonder how established facts can get all unestablished?

Bizarre attack on the Obama rump swab Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, who made the Sunday talk show rounds to say the attacks were “demonstrations” sparked by protests in Egypt over an anti-Islamic video on YouTube.

Admin, please fix date on this article. It should be 2012, not 2013.

The CBC America’s race obsessed idiots. No wonder they represent the worst areas of society, where nobody, I mean NOBODY wants to live, go to school, or do business.

Except maybe the liquor stores and pawn shops.

The Wapo thinks it can bull shiite its way out of this for Obama and has felt this way since it happened. We'll see what happens Wednesday. Will GOPers stand tall after the prove the lies? Don't bet on it. The media will ignore the hearings because,”If we don't report it, it never happened.”
