Susan Collins blasts Susan
Rice after meeting

Politico, by Scott Wong & Seung Min Kim

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/28/2012 6:17:06 PM

Susan Rice’s already fading chances of becoming the next secretary of state suffered another serious blow Wednesday courtesy of moderate GOP Sen. Susan Collins. Rice, the U.N. ambassador, will need the support of a handful of Republicans if she expects to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But Collins emerged from a face-to-face meeting and blasted Rice’s response to the Benghazi attack — the latest of several Republicans this week to signal that a Rice nomination will have real trouble getting through the Senate.

It must have been a pretty bad meeting when the media´s favorite Republican comes away unimpressed.

Susan Rice should be the next Ambassador to Libya w/o any extra security.

That´s right, if she comes out and opposes Traitor John as well, then I´ll be impressed. Rice may be the most incompetent, anti-American joke in this sad sack Administration, and that´s saying something.

If Susan Collins who votes further left than most democrats, can´t accept Ambassador Rice´s explanations then she doesn´t stand a chance for the SoS job. I don´t think Kerry does either but it´ll be fun trying to have him produce his military records. The quality of Obamas staff appointments so far has been uniformly low. I don´t expect it to get any better!

FTA: But one GOP senator told POLITICO Wednesday that McCain, Graham and Ayotte were so incensed after their powwow with Rice because they felt she was not being straight or candid with them about Benghazi

Powwow? Maybe Barry should just wait till after the New Year when Lizzie Warren (D-Cherokee Nation) can join in on the discussions.

If the Sens really think she is a possible nominee (and not just a way to get Repubs to further P off the black and female vote), then one of them should just say "A nomination of Susan Rice for Secretary of State can only be saying one thing: the President thinks Sen. Kerry is not qualified for the job".

I´m starting to get the sense that the WH Choom Gang is laffing their arses off at us - McCain/Graham, Ayotte/Collins - all of us spinning our heads over Susan Rice, when they planned something else, someone else, all along.

How John McCain can even LOOK at John Kerry even in the Senate knowing what J´Effin did and said about U.S. soldiers at the very time he, McCain, was in the Hanoi Hilton ... I´ll never know.

But then, I can´t pretend to EVER get inside the heads of our elected Super-Smarts.

Part of this is policy but a lot is personality. Rice has made a lot of enemies over the years and the Sec of State job requires someone with a lot more tact than Rice. Obama may be as shocked as GHW Bush was when his nomination of John Tower for Defense crashed.

FTA: Rice acknowledged this week that she had mistakenly described the attack as something spontaneous rather than premeditated. But she said neither she nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the public.

I just read her bio at Wikipedia (don´t laugh) and it is not exactly a glowing bio. I always thought Wikipedia was written by the person or family of the personality in question.

Rice has a history of making "mistakes" and lots of people died. In many of her positions, she was simply too inexperienced, which surprisingly, is stated in the Wikipedia entry.

I really think Obama thought when he made Susan Rice the UN Ambassador, the morons who voted for him would think he was just elevating Condi Rice. They would only see the name Rice and not know the difference. Republicans should come out and publicly say "Susan Rice is no Condi Rice!"

Obama is flexing his potus muscles with Rice. I suspect for effect, to appease his black base and to show he´s appreciative for their efforts. He will select either Kerry or as #11 predicts, Jon Huntsman. If he selects Kerry, they may likely lose a senate seat. Therefore it could possibly be Huntsman.

When you´ve lost Susan Collins...
# 31 Collins compensates for her speech impediment by speaking very slowly and deliberately,
which gives the impression
she´s not a quick thinker.
Barry´s obvious speech impediment has never once been acknowledged by his adoring media.
If George Bush had the same impediment , every time he spoke in public, the media would preface their report by mentioning the sibilance problem.
And when they asked him questions at a press conference,
they would collaborate
so all his answers required the use of the letter " S ".

Hi folks. I am was as frustrated as anyone else re the lack of outrage coming from Repub big wheels in our Congress. Then I come across an article that shed a little light on the issue. In 1982 to settle a lawsuit the RNC and RSC entered into an agreement or Consent Decree which is national in scope. (Cant be racist). It limited RNCs ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtained court approval. Any prescint with majority of minority voters was off limits to voter screening. End result-- NO VOTER monitoring allowed by GOP. Google it for more prescise explanations. Case pending in SCOTUS, 30 years later. Goodby GOP.

#12, "The spine donor republican´s" aren´t going to do anything because Collins and the entire repub party are fully complicit and onboard Obama´s statist agenda.

What we are watching from Collins and the others on Benghazi is a smokescreen and pure "Theatre" to make us think they are putting up a fight against the dems. They are not. Just as their protests about new taxes are phony. They will cave on everything including the ´Dream Act´ while we are focusuing on Benghazi and the upcoming Christmas Holiday´s. The same tactic the repubs used before they caved to Obama by design,on virtually everything during the 2010 lame Duck session during the week leading up to Christmas. They mean to drag out Benghazi untill the Christmas vacation hoping we will foget about it by the time they return,much like Issa and Boehner dragged out ´Fast and Furious´ with their ´Good cop,Bad cop´ routine. Anyone heard about ´Fast and Furious´ lately? I didn´t think so. And 300 mexican´s and two American Border Patrol agents were murdered in that one and all as a pretext to take away our God Given second Ammendment Right´s.

They are all collaborative Traitors in both Parties. WE need a Third Party Now!

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
