Obama to McCain: You canít stop Susan Rice from being Secretary of State
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/14/2012 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 11/14/2012 12:57:25 PM PST by mojito

President Obama, irritated by Republican pledges to prevent Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice from receiving a promotion, said that Rice’s critics “have a problem with me.”

“When they go after the UN ambassador apparently because they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me,” Obama told reporters today. “And should I choose — if I think that she would be the best person to serve America in the capacity of the State Department [head] then I will nominate her, but that’s not a determination I’ve made yet.”

Obama was responding to a press conference held by three GOP senators this morning. “We will do whatever’s necessary to block the nomination that’s within our power as far as Susan Rice is concerned,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters today during a press conference on Capitol Hill. McCain faulted Rice for saying that the Benghazi terrorist attack grew out of a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam Youtube video.

Go for it! Let Bam-Bam appoint the stupidest, most incompetent, most leftist ideologically driven freaks to every office in his regime. No sense trying to enforce sanity on the aggressively insane ... let them run completely amok, and crash spectacularly.

I'm breaking out the popcorn and beer ...

Our ghetto gangsta president- even more the funny because it’s an act. He was raised a rich kid of privilege, and sent to expensive private schools, in Hawaii. Thats far far from Compton.

Is this what they promised Rice when she was sent out to lie for the regime? The SoS slot?

2/3 senate approval required for an appointee. It’ll take the demholes ten, or maybe as long as 15 minutes to find a dozen republican fools anxious to reach across the aisle and approve any loser Obama appoints.

He’s pretty tough when standing behind a podium or his wife...get him away from that protection and he’s the mom jeans, limp wristed, bike helmet wearing, whiny wannabe we see every other day.

I hope he enjoys it now...the common action after the mention of his name will be spitting on the ground. History will not be kind and God not impressed.

Even if he didn't have control of the Senate Obama still can't be stopped. He'll just by-pass it. What would the Republicans do?

Answer: About the same as they're doing now about the 2012 Voter Fraud.

EO: Immigration... oh such a long list and pile of paperwork on John Boehner's desk.

King Obama telling McCain, once again, that He Won! I’m not encouraged that McCain will follow through. He’s probably just angling for some gift from ‘nice guy’ Barry Obama.

Sometimes I wonder if this is Kabuki opera and they’ve already decided at the Washington bars to let Susan get rejected as a kind of quid pro quo between the Republicans and Democrats.

It's completely appropriate. The Worst President Ever should have the Worst Cabinet Ever. Let's go for it ... appoint the clinically insane to high office. Let's see what the demonicRat Party is really all about. If we're gonna crash and burn, let's do it up right.

Except for the nuclear option, they truly can block Susan Rice’s appointment.

I’d prefer he nominate Colin Powell, and I’m sure since his Pal Powell needs a chance to redeem himself from those nasty wmds that Barack will give Powell the break he needs to cleanse his historic record. /sarc

Time to put Susan Rice on the stand. Ask her under oath if she was told to say ‘protest over a video’. Then ask her if she was promised a promotion in exchange for lying for her boss. She KNEW what she said wasn’t true.
