Skip to comments.Susan Rice will not be nominated for Secretary of State
Posted on 11/18/2012 7:02:38 AM PST by SeekAndFind
After the 9/11/2012 murders of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, the Obama Administration was in full covereup mode. They required that someone go on five 9/16/2012 Sunday talk shows to make the case that our diplomats had died because of a YouTube video and not a terrorist attack.
The Administration did not want to pick an individual familiar with any aspect of Benghazi. He or she would have been subjected to challenging questioning (?) beginning with, "What did you know and when did you know it?"
So United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice was trotted out. Her relatively clean hands allowed her to present a false narrative and get away with it. Today, anyone with a lick of sense knows that she (however innocent) was the carrier of the YouTube lie.
President Obama will not even nominate Susan Rice for the position of Secretary of State for the simple reason that at the confirmation hearing, she would be grilled under oath about who briefed her (provided her with the YouTube lie) before her Sunday talk show appearances, the exact conditions of the briefing, and the extent to which she suspected that she had been chosen to propagate a lie. Her testimony would at the very least juice the scandal by sparking interest in the names of the officials who provided her with the lie and the names of the superiors who approved it.
She has been floated as a possible Secretary of State to give the President the opportunity to tar her critics as racists and sexists and to conceal the fact that she will not be nominated.

re: “Well see but I think this is incorrect. The idiot in chief will nominate her.”
I agree with you. If Obama doesn’t nominate her, then that will look like there is something to this “Benghazi thing”.
Also, do we really think any questions regarding Benghazi will be allowed? Or, the real question, are there any Republican senators who have the guts to even ask her about it? I doubt it.
I nominate her as Ambassador to Libya.
Just like Obama won’t be re-elected in 2012
I hope so...but maybe they’ll still be too busy looking for the current SOS. I guess she plans to send in her resignation from some foreign clime. This whole thing is such a mess.
Frankly, I don’t see how Hillary can be allowed to cruise around indefinitely evading the committee, with absolutely no penalty and not even much criticism. But I guess that would mean that I would be expecting sanity, something that is long gone from our government.
Oh...I forgot to mention the worst speculation: prepping the lovely Michelle as the Dem candidate for 2016. But with people like Rice, Holder and the current, allegedly male Obama in charge, we probably won’t even exist as a country by 2016. Some consolation.
I think that is correct. And further, I don't think she'll be grilled on Benghazi. At all. Who on the Right side has any balls to do that? The other side will have their ducks in a row for any confirmation hearings...just as they did for the most recent election.
I think the author is right. She’d have to testify under oath in her confirmation hearings about who sent her out with the ridiculous video story, and Obama doesn’t want to risk that.
I respectfully disagree. He already told mccain to pound sand. o knows full well that if she should face a confirmation hearing, she will only be asked softball questions, i.e, “Do you think that Greece should withdraw from the EU?” Anything more probing will be deemed racist.
( To illustrate his arrogance, I personally think that he will recess appoint her.)
Seem to me, the”idiot in chIef” likes nothing better than poking a sick at normal white Christians and nominating this black racist would do exactly that.
He’ll nominate her because:
1) She didn’t know anything about Benghazi at the time she was told to lie; and
2) Obama is too much of a megalomaniac to allow Graham and McCain to win; and
3) She’s a black woman.
I had thought about the confirmation hearings. It might even be worth the nomination (as long as she did not get the votes).
Reward your friends, punish your enemies. Pretty simple philosophy.
The Republican plan is equally simple. Roll over and play dead.
She will do nothing. Thinking she would implies she has pride and is honourable. She's not or Zero would have never put her in the UN, a bastion of thieves and political thugs.
Zero will make sure she is taken care of.
Ha ha ha... a Black Mail.... ha ha ha... Oh come on... having fun.... with puns.. With O’ it seems black mails ...black fe-mails...Lies & deception..
I would accept the nomination....except for the following reasons;
I detest O’ and those liars who surround the O’ liar
NYC and the UN are cesspools
I do not fly nor do I travel more than 75 miles (max) from my home by any other mode, even donkey.
I Disagree with any City or State which removes the right to Keep & Bare arms and the right to defend one’s self and family!
I think it’s certainly possible that he would recess appoint her.
Czar of State
“He already told mccain to pound sand. o knows full well that if she should face a confirmation hearing, she will only be asked softball questions, i.e,”
Question 1 Sen. MCCain “Do you think the Sunday NY times is too thick? Please answer with a “YES” or “NO””
Susan Rice “In light of current events, and based on the fact that I am an AFRICAN-Muslim-American, I find that question racist, homophobic, discriminatory against the Female gender and it violates the Muslim faith!”
We have a winner.
