Backed by Obama, sharp-tongued
Susan Rice battles critics

Susan Rice has had a series of diplomatic triumphs as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. President Barack Obama, an old friend, showed he has her back when last week he publicly challenged her Republican critics over the Benghazi controversy to "go after me" rather than her. She knew former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright from the age of 4. And yet Rice is now fighting for her political future. Her chances of becoming the next secretary of state - replacing Hillary Clinton - have been significantly damaged. Senior Republicans, such as Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham,

Comments:
This woman is supposed to be a diplomat? She couldn´t do a lot of harm at the UN, but as SoS, she would be real trouble. Anyone else think all this hype about Rice is to soften us up to accept John Kerry instead?

FTA: While Rice said some statements about her by McCain were "unfounded," she may have been trying to mend fences when she added: "I look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him."

Translation: Mend fences??? He´s gonna get a cussing from me like he´s never heard.

FTA: Rothkopf, who was an official in President Bill Clinton´s administration, cited James Baker and Henry Kissinger as exemplary secretaries of state.

They were "tough infighters who broke a few eggs and made some enemies. They are admired for their toughness, and (Rice) is attacked for her abrasiveness," he said.

Observation of the obvious: Gender isn´t the only difference between Rice and those two highly intelligent, politically experienced and accomplished men. Therein lies the problem with trying to equate them.

She is a well educated incompetent woman. If you didn´t realize she is black, you do now.

Since she turns out to be black, you are not allowed to criticize anything she has ever said or done. Get this straight. All negative comments must stop immediately.

She is a nasty little thing, completely ineffective at the U.N.
And her doctoral dissertation was on Zimbabwe politics and reform. That interests me, because as I noted earlier, someone trying to put one over on one´s dissertation committee tends to pick an obscure topic, usually unfamiliar to one´s committee members.
She may be a hoax.

I am beginning to believe what OP suggests. That she will continue to be treated roughly (without Obie´s intervention) so that Kerry as SoS would seem to be a relief. That may account too for the absurd suggestion floated that Kerry would be nominated for SoD.

Obie playing chess?

#7, we had a power surge here in the Erie, Pa area a few days ago, and it killed my lucianne account. Don´t ask me to explain how that happened, but it did. I had to reapply, and since the old name would not work any more, I selected Dr.Lakerman, since other variations of lakerman seemed to have been taken.
My comments on academic matters (as in the case of Rice) are almost always correct. I spent most of my civilian life in the academic world, and I can spot a hustler pretty quickly. And in the areas of foreign policy/international relations, the people who work in that area are mostly shoveling smoke. That makes it relatively easy to sneak through the credentialing process.

The party that tried to tear Sarah Palin to shreds needs to shut UP until we can make them all get voted out, or arrested for dereliction of duty and incompetence..whichever comes first.

The sexism is really in a lot of countries aronnd the world that frown upon women in power. They´d much raher deal with a male. That´s just the way it is. I never cared for Holbrook that much or think he accomplished anything but if he were still alive,that´s the type you would want.The truth is Obama doesn´t have a big list of backups to put in this job. Many would face embarrassing questions during confirmation and the dirt digging would fly.

Rice is a female version of Obama.She might be academically or book smart but that doesn´t mean she has an ounce of sense or really cares about American interests.Aside from the Benghazi bungle,she´s very pro muslim and that would skew her view on Israel.That´s the biggest hot spot in the world right now.

"A coup is a coup is a coup is a coup." Kid you not, that was literally her argument against the people of Honduras, including black ones, who constitutionally removed their president and saved their country from communism. Rice was having none of it and did all she could to smear the Hondurans in the name of supporting Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.

For Honduras alone, Rice is unfit to represent the United States of America. She is a flaming leftist.

The link to this rabid leftwing site: http://narcosphere.narconews.com/thefield/3460/honduran-coup-regime-mocks-un-security-council-embassy-attacks

quotes Susan Rice as being hysterical about the supposed violation of Brazilian embassy territory by the Honduran government. Explain to me why she´s so concerned about Brazilian territorial integrity yet utterly indifferent to US territorial integrity in the case of Benghazi? You think she´ll ever stick up for US embassies´ right to operate the rabid way she did for the Brazilians?

"Tough economic sanctions on Iran?" Iran is arming Hamas and Hezbollah, establishing a submarine fleet, causing trouble in Iraq and, oh yeah, is moving full speed on its nuclear weapons program along with buying and making delivery systems that can reach Europe. How well are those sanctions working?

Every person in the Benghazi knowledge chain was in Washington that Sunday and could have gone on the five shows but Barack Obama chose the one diplomat who was totally out of the picture to go in front of America and spout the version the White House wanted spread. Whether the SoS job was a payoff, I don´t know but it sure smells like it! What I do believe is that people in the Administration above her knew her talking points were a lie when they sent her out in front of the mediaand I´m pretty certain she knew it too.

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Those ‘rogue’ agents

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
