Susan Rice is not the best choice to lead State Department
Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rices deceptive Benghazi spin ought to be enough to sink her bid for promotion. Mrs. Rices infamous talking points insisted that a YouTube video, rather than preplanned terrorism, prompted the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. Yet theres plenty more in her past that calls into question her fitness as a potential replacement for Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state.
Mrs. Rice made the rounds on Capitol Hill last week in an attempt to round up support. She met with Sen. Susan M. Collins, Maine Republican, who expressed concern that our ambassadors in Africa had asked for additional security before the 1998 terrorist bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Those requests were turned down under Mrs. Rices watch as assistant secretary of state for African affairs.
More recently, as ambassador to the United Nations, Mrs. Rice pushed to have the United States join the U.N. Human Rights Council, a fraternity of some of the worlds worst human rights violators, including Libya when it was under the rule of Moammar Gadhafi. Joining was an effort to reform from within and keep Iran out, but the U.S. presence only adds legitimacy to the body. Yet when it comes to our allies, Mrs. Rice keeps a distance, as in September, when she skipped out on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus speech before the U.N. General Assembly.

Hillary shouldn’t be allowed to bail until she cleans up that “arab spring” mess she caused in the Middle East.
I hear you. Hillary was not qualified to be SoS but I doubt she could clean up her mess.
Got to be a cushy no real impact job if hitlery can do any part of it, right or wrong.
Just like the Pubbies voting PRESENT on any fiscal Bills to let nobama and his dems own it, they need to let bamaClaus install Rice and any other afro-American 100% in their africa style gubmit. Show the whole damn world on a grand scale how they really can not govern.
When its all over, we are going to have one hellofa mess to fix up.
Oil. Soros. Obama.
Watch for a recess appt. during the New Years break.
