Andrea Mitchell: Women In Admin. "Very Angry" With Obama Over Susan Rice
Real Clear Politics ^ | December 13, 2012 | Andrea Mitchell

Posted on 12/13/2012 10:14:22 PM PST by Seizethecarp

ANDREA MITCHELL: A lot of Democrats are saying that the president did not show enough loyalty. A lot of women in the administration are very angry tonight, and I'm saying this at a very high level. Angry because they feel that she was not treated with respect, she was not given the support she needed and she was left to twist in the wind.

RACHEL MADDOW: They're angry, with whom though?

MITCHELL: Angry with the White House. And with the boss, with the president, for not be willing to fight this out. That he's backed down in the face of a challenge from the Republican minority, after having won a reelection victory. And most people in the foreign policy community understand that as qualified as John Kerry is, and he's superbly qualified, he was trained -- he lived for this post -- a son of a diplomat, and clearly wanted this job and will get this job.

But the anger is that she was not responsible for Benghazi. And that what was said on those Sunday talk shows -- if you were to deny a promotion to everyone who misspeaks or gets something wrong on Sunday television, including all of us, there would be no one left in Washington.

I didn't think this would go over well with Barry's female enablers and apologists. It is almost as though he is back where he was after the 1st debate getting pummeled for being spineless.

A lot of women in the administration are very angry tonight...

Why? Is it because Susan Rice was treated like any other fallguy?! Looks like equality to me.

Rice's WaPo post was a “protests too much” regarding how honest she was and wouldn't dream of misleading the public.

This has got to be thin-skinned Barry and Valerie making excuses for themselves through Rice...and also throwing Rice under the bus to protect Hillary as well who seconded Rice's lies just the other day.

Did Andrea get a call from Susan Rice herself???

This shouldn't surprise anyone. Once hillary publicly dissed rice, it was all over.

Susan Rice is a political whore who lied to the American public about Benghazi on behalf of the Ubanga reelection effort. She thereby demonstrated that she (along with the rest of the Ubanga regime, of course) cannot be trusted. And so, “buh-bye.”

Good riddance to bad garbage.

(By the way, I wonder how much work Kerry did behind the scenes to make Susan Rice go away, lol.)

Obama could drown Andrea Mitchell’s Cat, (or Husband), and she would still Lewinsky him if he asked.

One other thought, I think it’s best that we hang the Journalists before we hang the Politicians.

That way, Journalists like Andrea Mitchell wouldn’t tell us how brave the Politicians were when the ropes were put around there necks.

Oh yeah, just shoot the Lawyers. Don’t want them wasting our time pontificating from the Gallows like they were defending OJ. If the rope don’t fit, you must acquit.

How do you “misspeak” five times in five different interviews?

Bush gets one syllable wrong and he is an imbecile. Obama does it over and over again and they tell us how great the crease in his pants looks.

We are living in the Bizarro World, or it's just a nightmare.

Earlier in the day Piss Matthews said he was disappointed also, that it was more important for Obama's top tier in his administration to "look more like America"...as opposed to having the best, most qualified person for the job Piss?

Cracker Chris needs to give up his job to a women or minority...or just STFU.

On the other hand some top Democrat women don't care much for Susan Rice.

From FOX Nation:

Clinton supporters will also privately acknowledge that they haven’t forgotten that Rice, a State Department official in Bill Clinton’s administration, was one of the first former Clinton aides to jump ship in 2007 and endorse Barack Obama. Rice even attacked Hillary’s stances on Iraq and Iran, asking for an “explanation of how and why she got those critical judgments wrong.” “One thing you can be sure of is that the Clintons never forget disloyalty,” a source close to the Clintons tells me.

He promised Susan a promotion in exchange for her lying about and downplaying Benghazi to save his re-election. Hmmmmm, let’s see.. They’re both EQUALLY morally bankrupt. You sleep with dogs you get fleas (my apologies to dogs).

False drama. If abortion didn`t get it first, those women would give their firstborn to be in his presence. I don`t believe for one second they`re anything but overjoyed to be in the same building as Obama.

Besides... he`s The One. He doesn`t show loyalty to anyone. Their task is to show loyalty to him.

I assume she’s talking about Michelle, that’s about as high up in the administration you can go. Michelle will withold sex from Barry until he appoints yet another woman to the Supreme Court of something. Rice has been cooked, served, and eaten. Good work and a job well-done to McCain and his gang of two.

At the end of the day, they’ll all bow their knees and kiss the Master’s behind.

Obamugabe made a big deal about signing the Lily Ledbetter Act in the campaign... but analysis proved that he paid his female employees less than his male employees. His female staff members knew that already, and they still work for him. They are willingly working for a hypocrite.
