Republican senators say Rice meeting
just leaves more questions unanswered

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/27/2012 11:50:05 AM

Three Republican senators who met Tuesday with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice say they left the meeting with more unanswered questions about her comments after the deadly September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. “I am more disturbed now than before,” said South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. The Capitol Hill meeting lasted about 90 minutes and also was attended by acting CIA Director Michael Morell. Graham was joined by Sens. Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire, and John McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Comments:
Simply put, if Rice can´t obfuscate [lie, to those in Rio Linda], she doesn´t deserve to be a future Secretary of State on 0bama´s team. This went as most of US expected. Now, what will the GOP do? Whine, or keep going after 0bama till the truth of Benghazi is revealed and those responsible for the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and the three men are criminally charged and convicted.

She´s either totally incompetent or a political stooge, either way, she misled the American people about a terror attack on U.S. soil on 9/11 and can NOT be trusted.

She went into the meeting with the "Obama ´tude"..more and more of that showing up everywhere.
People showing their butts, after all they have Obamapho´ now.
I am a courteous older person and lately I cannot go to a shop, bank, or other place of business without being treated like some sort of second rate citizen by Obama voters.
Has anyone else experienced this?

As far as I can tell, no talking head has asked anyone (especially in the Administration) if no one was sure about what was the cause(s) of the attack and it was/(is) being invetsigated, then why didn´t you (Rice) just say that? Instead it was the video ad nauseum.

And if as Obama stated she had nothing to do with Benghazi, State Dept security/diplomatic building issues, etc. then why was she sent out if she could not answer any questions that required some knowledge of State, etc.? Why wasn´t the actual SoS sent out on these talk shows?

I´m a little surprised Kelly Ayotte attached herself so quickly to McCain and Graham. I would like to see her show more independence at this point. Like her a lot. She may regret it in the long run.

Has anyone asked this question: If President Obama labled the Benghazi massacre a terrorist attack the day after it occured (as was his infamous claim in the second debate, supported and "verified" by Candy Crowley), then how is it that Rice was flitting about days later blaming the killings on a spontaneous flare-up by protesters enraged over an anti-Muslim video posted on YouTube?

Can someone post that question, preferably directly to the President, please?

Asking Rice in politely for a private meeting was a tactical error. When will they learn? The Senators should ignore her totally until/unless she is up for Sec of State. Then, PUBLIC hearings under oath and ask her everything. All criticism, scrutiny should be directed at one person - OBAMA. This emphasis on Rice only helps him.

Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glenn Dougherty were slaughtered like animals over a 7 hour period as the President sat and watched on live drone video feed, doing nothing since any response would have laid lie to his ´Arab Spring´ policy.

There are no more questions to answer, other than WHY is the Republican party not pushing an indictment of TREASON.

Remember Watergate. The Dems and the press didn´t let up for five minutes. They shoved that cover up in our face the way they did Obamacare. But of course, Nixon was a mean white man not a submissive Black woman.

Rice is damaged goods who brings little credibility to the world stage, especially in the Middle East. But King Obama wants her to prove a point that he gets whatever he wants.

That´s Washington-speak for it went really, really, really badly.

I don´t really have a read on Rice, of course she made a perfect fool of herself about Benghazi and a respectable person would quit and go home after that no matter whose fault it was, but DC is generally short of respectable people in any case. Is she a female Eric Holder, basically a toady whatever her actual ability level?

Correction #3, she is an incompetent, political stooge. Her record of failure should be enough to bar her from higher office. In this brave new world, it guarantees it because all her failures were to the detriment of the U.S. Remember, she couldn´t be bothered to attend Netanyahu´s speech to the UN, she was having lunch with the dictator crowd.

Kelly Ayotte is doing herself no favors by coat-tailing McCain and Graham. She probably feels when she throws her hat in the ring for 2016 these two will secure many followers for her. She will echo the other two on the meeting with Rice if they ever give her a chance to talk.

She was sent out to stonewall and she did. Now, the O Admin. is hoping to accuse all those white folks of racism if they refuse to confirm her. It´s all been set up from the start.

As for Benghazi answers, good luck.

With a couple of exceptions the GOP* Senators should form a circular firing squad and practice until they get it right. It would be a favor to the nation.

What did those boobs expect?

*The Democrat Senators, with no exceptions should do the same. It would be an even bigger favor to the nation.

Kelly Ayotte is on Fox with Megyn, saying she found Rice´s "explanation" to be "unsatisfactory".

Ayotte is smart. Her speech is odd which hampers her ability to communicate. Raspy. Nerves or ? Otherwise she seems smart, although not quite as take-charge as I´d like to see. Some were mentioning her for VP with Romney. Not sure about her being at that level. Seems right just where she is.

If the meeting raised more questions than were answered, then one could only say it went well.

Because Susan Rice is one huge question mark. And further illumination of her background will only reveal more and more shadows and dark corners.

So why do I have this feeling of impending dread that Lindsey Graham is STILL going to capitualte and vote for her confirmation anyway?

PS to #30. Ayotte never got an answer from Rice as to who gave her the talking points and sent her to the talk shows other than "the White House", which is not an answer. We know that. WHO in the White House? Now maybe Ayotte knows, but if she doesn´t she failed on this one.

Ayotte is still hung up on who changed the talking points when we know that it was someone in Clapper´s group - the DNI - but again there has to have been a person. Or he is falling on their collective sword and it was again that illusive, ephemeral "White House".

#34 cont´d (hit submit too soon)

One statement Ayotte made positively: In response to a question from Megyn as to whether they thought Rice was confirmable, she said that there were too many questions to be answered on the entire Benghazi incident before "anyone is confirmed" for "the highest diplomatic post in our government".

Now that is getting somewhere.

Well she was circulated, among the talk shows, to circulate the spin with no accountability because, well, she´s out of the chain. (BTW-why did the networks even let her in, when this whole debacle had nothing to do with her job/duties? Oh, b/c she just said DC sent her?! Try something new, lame American networks-it´s called "verification and screening". If this had taken place-there would be no pay dirt for Obama and his Simon-Says with: events, players, truth. The networks willingly play into his hands)

Now Obamba wants to reward her for being a good little lying, interference-running spinmeister. The foolish Repubs let the democrats set the agenda, like someone chasing a dollar bill on the sidewalk, being pulled along by invisible fishing line. When will they learn? The dems will go around saying now that Lindsey and McCain had their chance to clear the air in this meeting and issue over-confirm her NOW, when the meeting should have been, just as mentioned above, under oath and subject to perjury charges. Why is Hillary allowed to skate? Where the h is she?!

There isn´t much reason to have faith in the pub attack dogs-there´s no there, there. It´s really disappointing. They´ve let us down time and time again. Ie now F&F is just a memory.

Question #1 !!!
What was obama doing on 9/11?

Since the corrupt news media does not ask, we know he was the one to order the US military not to rescue 30 Americans and that obama was going to let 30 Americans and who knows how many others be murdered.

This was termed a "charm offensive" by the Rice cheerleaders in the MSM.

When I heard that, I laughed. Ruefully. For even if Susan Rice had any personal charm whatsoever (as Condi Rice did), there is not a snowball´s chance in hell she could stuff her Big Lie back in the bottle.

This is something that Cult of Personality acolytes --and those like Obama who believe in their own manufactured Cult of Personality-- cannot grasp:

Rice is simply fodder...ask Obama these questions:


IF Obama gave the order to save the Ambassador, military attache and the Seals, there Is a written order...SHOW IT..PROVE it ...


EXACTLY WHERE was Obama at the time of the attack???..over those 7 hours...


Why was Obama running missiles and armaments through Turkey, using them as a conduit and into Syria to AlQaeda ???


Why was the Turkish counsel there in Benghazi??? At a CIA safe house?


30,000 Missing missiles and Manpads launchers,,,WHY??? Is this Fast and Furious II Missile Running??? Why was the known Arms Dealer´s ship at Benghazi´s port??? This is traitorous SEDITION if the president is arms running...And if as thought to an enemy, Al Qaeda, of the USA?? Do we have a traitor in the WH...


Ambassador Stevens was raped as reported, was this because the USA stood by and let our supported rebel forces rape Kaddaffi...PAYBACK by Russia...


Is this a proxy war with Russia?...It would seem so... as Russia is angered with our turn over of their allies Libya and now in process Syria, to the Muslim Brotherhood...Why would this president want to start WWIII?


Was Russia sending us a message on Election Day with RUSSIAN NUCLEAR SUBMARINES off our East Coast.???


Who told those Seals to light themselves up with Laser...they would Only have done that if told the Drone above would give them cover and use that light up to draw out and kill the enemy...the Seals did not draw fire to out their position and to get themselves slaughtered? Who gave the order to lie to the Seals toure the laser to get them murdered?

What is Lochkeed´s part in the direct commerce of Missile running?

Why is the USA, against our NATO treaty, handing over Stinger Missiles to Al Qaeda, an entity of the Muslim Brotherhood?

Well people get used to the “new normal” where lies, obfuscation, prevarication, stonewalling, calling evil good and good evil are the new standards for behavior in addition remember 0bama’s approval rating is 51%, which means obviously that over half of America enjoys being screwed.

It is past time to subpoena Hillary, Rice, and the CIC, Barack Hussein Obama and interrogate them under oath about the Benghazi attack.

The time for meetings is long past.

Sorry to say that in this Dem/MSM induced Race Baiting, Gender Baiting atmosphere, the three senators would be smart to push Sen Kelly Ayotte more forward. Unfortunately, the ´´old white guys´´ slander still works in many quarters. Speak up, louder please, Sen Ayotte!

Dems learned years ago that "public servants" (gag) are soft, greedy, corrupt and always looking out for #1. Pubs are still playing Ststesman, but starting with Cinton & the BJ Dems learned that the GOP will always fold. The press will trivialize this, too. Expect repeal of prez term limits next. They´ll just ram it through.

Of course she is going to get confirmed. It is a two-fer, black and female...now if she is also a lesbian (I have no idea), she would fulfill the affirmative action trifecta

Anyone who does not confirm her is racist and sexist and also racist against BO as well.

Can This Marriage Be Saved?
Weekly Standard Magazine, by Jay Cost    Original Article

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

Tehran, Iran - Iran will redesign its Arak heavy water reactor to greatly limit the amount of plutonium it can make, the country´s vice president said Saturday, marking a major concession from the Islamic Republic in negotiations with world powers over its contested nuclear program. The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces. Iranian state television quoted Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as saying that Iran has

Asia seeks Obama’s

Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Behind Qatar´s bet on
the Muslim Brotherhood

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Obama administration puts off
decision on Keystone oil pipeline

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
