Washington - The White House could finally have its chance to close the books on its Benghazi public relations disaster, as key Republicans signal they might not stand in the way of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to become the next secretary of state. "I think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told "Fox News Sunday." ´´But she´s not the problem. The problem is the president of the United States," who, McCain said, misled the public on terrorist involvement. Rice is widely seen as President Barack Obama´s top pick

They really need to grill her on why she was so active on turning BinLaden down during Clinton.You could arguably blame 3000 deaths and two big wars on that decision.

So, if our choice is lying, foul-mouthed Susan Rice or lying, turncoat John Kerry, I´m not sure I see an advantage or disadvantage to either. I´m assuming Graham and McCain feel the same way.

When the liberal Democrats pull the race card trigger, the wimpy Republicans just about always back down. It´s pretty simple, and is allowing a small socialist minority of less then 15% to generally run the country into the ground.

AP´s Flaherty spinning like mad with "Benghazi public relations disaster". An unauhorized war in Libya, an unprotected consulate denied security, an ambassador and 3 other Americans murdered by terrorist, a White House refusing help and a president lying about it all. That´s a national security disaster, not a PR fiasco.

But the AP just yawns.

Christmas is coming, so you know McCain and Lindsey will be questioning Susan Rice in matching reindeer sweaters. Lindsey´s troubling and "passionately worded" first question: "Outside of the new middle east vermin we created in the ´Arab Spring´ knowing, in you, we are sending an even more offensive, butch, empty, exceptionally good liar than was the last one, would you say that the race card is your most valuable consideration for this office?" -- will be tempered to a more republican sounding, "Sme say ´Character is only a litmus test to those who believe a country should have character´.

Allow me to offer this, one more time.
Lisa Jarrett is the person running the president and his presidency. She is closest to him and to Michelle, and has advanced their careers, behind the scenes.
So if Susan Rice became Secretary of State, that might diminish Jarrett´s power and influence in the White House.
So Jarrett sent out the dimbulb Rice to go on all those sunday news shows to tell a big lie, over and over again. And Jarrett would know that the lie would collapse around Rice´s tiny head, after the election, which would make Rice unacceptable as Secretary of State.
But now it may be backfiring on Jarrett. Rice will be nominated by President Zero, and will be confirmed.
Is my hypothesis correct?

It seems the GOP has tired of being gang-beaten by the Left and their mainstream press for being ´the party of No´, and are feeling nostalgic for the days when they simply complained as they bent over to the Dems.

Will this reenergize the Tea Party movement and give Conservative voters a voice in Washington? Or does this spell the death throes of everything to the Right of RINO on the political spectrum?

Much of the blame should fall directly on AssPress and the rest of the Alinskian Propaganda machine popularly known as the mainstream media (but more accurately as the enemedia for their anti-American agenda).

#18 - Obama´s brain is called Valerie Jarrett, not Lisa. Valerie dominates the "left" side, and actually, only side of Obama´s small brain. The Lisa you mentioned is Lisa Jackson, EPA Marxist, who is known as Obama´s rectum for the waste matter she imposes on US business and citizens.

I think this will work out in the GOP´s favor.

First - criticize Rice and have B.O. come out and loudly defend her. Make a big deal out of it ... all over the media. Totally behind Rice.

Second - GOP announces easing of criticism, giving B.O. green light to appoint her as Sec. of State. At this point B.O. would look rather foolish if he didn´t appoint her.

Third - confirmation hearings - Rice has to testify under oath ... GOP can ask all kinds of questions that they wouldn´t have the opportunity otherwise.

And my Party wonders why we don´t always trust it? If Rice BELIEVED the supposed intel on Benghazi re: that YouTube video she does not really know her field: Africa, which is her strong point. And if she hit the 5 Sunday talk shows just to promote the Obama view, she is nothing more than a puppet, willing to go along to get along. Neither is a recommendation of worth. But then again, MY Republican party voted Eric Holder in without a problem.

I sincerely hope this is a republican trick to make Obama think he can nominate this "lazy" and ´incompetent´ woman. If I ran the RNC, I´d have 100 investigators out digging up every square inch of dirt I could find on her to unload during the Senate hearings. Nothing held back. Just unload and destroy her.

The Republicans are gentlemen who give in to everything. They allow themselves to be accused of everything and never fight back. They give in to the most insidious of opposition demands. The don´t really want to lead this country. They just want to play golf and have a nice cushy job. Gingrich was the only one what was leading them out of the bog. And even Gingrich has that tendency to give up. They got rid of him and marginalized him. We need a new party.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

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

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
