Is Rice Cooked?
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/18/2012 3:54:53 PM

OUR Rice is better than your Rice. That’s the argument Democrats are aggressively making against Republicans. (Snip) Ambitious to be secretary of state, Susan Rice wanted to prove she had the gravitas for the job and help out the White House. So the ambassador to the United Nations agreed to a National Security Council request to go on all five Sunday shows to talk about the attack on the American consulate in Libya. “She saw this as a great opportunity to go out and close the stature gap,” said one administration official.

Ok, I read the first three paragraphs and that was enough. So, can I ask how old that photo of Dowd is? I have a friend who until recently wore a t-shirt that says "Kiss me, I´m 40" on the front. It was a favorite until a saleskid in a store asked her "How long have you had that shirt?"

So, Ms. Dowd, how long have you had that photo?

I wish congress would stop focusing on her and ask the real question of why nothing was done to help the Ambassador, Smith, woods, Doherty and others who were in danger. Obomination did NOTHING and watched them die!

Dowd, normally a dem transcriptionist, smells something in the air. She will be able to point to this piece, after King Putt´s flameout, and say "I told you so."

First Milbank and now Dowd who seems sober in this article for a change.

I never thought of the angle that she went on these shows lying to build up her resume for SoS but then again I don´t like like the crafty leftists.

Rice´s nomination is toast regardless of the CBC crying out loud.

The whole Libya scandal has absolutely nothing to do with Condi Rice, so why has Dowd inserted her name in the opening paragraphs of her weak opinion piece? Dowd spews venom with every word she writes. She is a hateful, vengeful poisonous columnist who doesn´t write any better than a freshman in journalism school. How she keeps a job is totally beyond explanation. What a despicable human being!

I hope when she testifies in front of Congress they ask her what evidence she has that she thought it was a demonstration.

The "building up the resume" theory has been around for the last few days. It actually makes sense.

Rice is a piker...who had no business in her present position....not ever.

Simply compare Rice to Bolton...She pales in comparison ....Rice and gravitas in the same sentence...laughable and ludicrous.

Until appointments are made based upon real accomplishments rather than skin tone...we will continue down the road to Affirmayptive Action ruin and the Jarxists running our universities will continue to demonise and ban conservatives as racists ..while inviting those who approve of bestiality all in the same week. Insanity thy name is Fordham.

Susan Rice, proving once again that anything Obama touches turns to rubbish. Spreading Obama´s lies on five Sunday talk shows didn´t enhance her resume for SoS, but it did enhance her resume for PoS.

Read her Wikipedia page. Rice was rubbish before Obama got anywhere near her. She´s been trying to turn herself into a major player for years. The results: disaster. It´s all there.

Maureen Dowd is clearly no friend of Susan Rice. She lambasts her so thoroughly here that this piece is being quoted elsewhere.

Maybe MoDo finally found something that enhanced her brainpower?

She´s a heck of a lot more vitriolic than anyone else writing about Rice, including our guys...

As I noted elsewhere, susan rice wrote a doctoral dissertation about zimbabwe politics. One of the dirty little tricks of selecting a dissertation topic is to pick one from an obscure part of the world, where the student is the expert.
I once worked with a young woman who wrote her doctoral dissertation on political economy, and she selected a country in South America, and wrote about land ownership. She admitted to me that property deeds in that country were so inaccurate that she simply manufactured her data, and her dissertation committee members signed off on her fake research, having no greater knowledge than she had.
I have this suspicion about susan rice...

As much as I can´t stand Dowd, and putting the ridiculous comparison to Condi aside, I think MoDo nailed it on this one. Rice put herself under Obama´s bus.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama´s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government´s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw. Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government´s Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular

NASHPORT, Ohio – A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart. Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning. The couple´s eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart(Snip)They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last? These are the questions we just

AUSTIN — Documents related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency, Travis County officials say. It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations. The Travis County district attorney’s office said last month that details from its review of a 2012 complaint that a rival filed about Davis’ legal and political activities were “the subject of an open investigation” by the

Jindo, South Korea -- A passenger describes women screaming in the darkness. A father learns his child is trapped. A son, fearing death, tells his mother he loves her. Investigators haven´t said what caused a South Korean ferry boat carrying hundreds of passengers to capsize on Wednesday. But as rescuers searched frigid waters for nearly 300 missing people, text messages purporting to be from missing passengers surfaced, describing the harrowing moments after the ferry started to roll.(Snip) On Thursday, the semi-official Yonhap News Agency reported that police now believe the messages supposedly sent after the ferry sank were fake.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
