Susan Rice’s Personality ´Disorder´
Daily Beast, by Lloyd Grove

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/13/2012 4:47:18 AM

Susan Rice, the United States ambassador to the United Nations and President Obama’s most visible candidate to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, is being subjected to an immutable law of the Washington power grid: in the rough and tumble of political combat, personality trumps policy. Government policy, especially foreign policy, is rife with nuance and complication. But personality is easier to grasp and harder to shed. Recent critiques of Rice’s influence on U.S. diplomacy in Rwanda, Sudan, and Eritrea over the past two decades are endlessly debatable among think-tank elites.

Not debatable here. Suspect.

Lloyd Grove should stick with lightweight gossip. She has not had a "brilliant career". It has been full of serious mistakes and yet pal Obie has pulled her along. Of course.

Having a nasty personality, being known for having a foul mouth, do not seem like qualities that would work for someone in the #1 diplomatic position in the United States. That´s the personality part.

Having made serious errors in judgement in the past is the business part. She is not intellectually equipped to be secretary of state. Or maybe she too just doesn´t like the United States?

Frankly I can hardly stomach hearing more about Susan Rice and her " brilliant career" or her gazillions of dollars. These thugs running our lives are laughing their a-- off that Americans are so stupid as to give them 4 more years to rape and pillage our country!

"Temperament" is not just Beltway jargon. Rice seems to be an overbearing prig, to use an old phrase. While she has strong academic credentials and is praised by a high school mentor, she come across as a know-it-all and full of herself.

Her atrocious handling of whatever she touched as Asst SoS in the Clinton era disqualifies her, particularly not pushing Clinton to address Rwanda genocide, which he says was the one area where he said he failed.

Even Kerry would be better, and that´s saying a lot.

Considering we have become the nation of We the Minorities, of and for Minorities, you hae to be amazed that Jay Carney has his job.

Susan Rice demonstrates an academic who knows nothing about the real world. She´s the female version of Obama.

But she´s ´of color´ so qualifications don´t really matter as much as the appearance that she should have the job, ´just ´cuz´.

2043..... right around the epochal corner.

Please! Any personality disorder is a resume enhancer if your a screaming liberal. By definition, liberalism is a personality disorder.

And if your looking for a nasty piece of work, just consider who Obama is considering for the Court of St James.

Liberal ideology IS the main personality disorder. Being sneering, rude, condescending, insufferably priggish are all side effects. Just look around from Bill Maher to the ultimate One.

I see good Old Lloyd is still trying to sell the "she was only reporting on the best intelligence available at that time" meme. Aside from her personality, which is condescending and nasty, she is a pathplogical liar. There is no way any semi-coherent person could buy the idea that she did not know she was lying when she became the face of the Obama administration for all things Benghazi.

#13, To Leftists, lying in the service of higher Leftist objectives is not only permissible to them, it is about mandatory. Zippy and his fictional WOT success narrative had to be protected, and most certainly protected in the run up to the election. To him, she is a fine loyal soldier who is taking one for the team in terms of the harm to her career path. To us, she appears to be a lying lackey, deserving of only our disdain.

That American blacks would re-elect Obama and support Rice as SoS when she so failed to even try to help their sisters and brothers in Rwanda says a lot about the ignorance of these black supporters of Obama.

When you have liberals take over this is the best and the brightest, bird or no bird. Look at the recent dis-appointments. Kagan and her zero judicial experience, one Senator that did sicko sex skits on SNL, another Senator thinks he fought in the jungles of Vietnam, another Senator-elect that poses as an American Indian that even the Indians denounce, and a Senator that hires an illegal sex offender but gets away with it because the FBI delays the arrest from the public. And each Democrat gets a pass by the media we no longer watch. The advertisers for these media circuses must know that no one is watching their 30 second multi-million dollar ad buys.

On the other hand, they don´t come any whiter than Hillary, and she´s made a complete manure pile of everything she´s ever touched.

1. I can´t agree with any who say, "let Obama appoint whomever he wants and take the consequences."

The consequences fall on us, and worse, on our kids. I think we owe them very breath of opposition to Obama we can draw. In a great stain on our history, Obama will likely escape anything and everything remotely resembling a just consequence.

2. A "prig" does not "g[i]ve the finger to her colleague Richard Holbrooke during a... high-level meeting.

"Prig" a. A person who demonstrates an exaggerated conformity or propriety, especially in an irritatingly arrogant or smug manner. b. a person who displays or demands of others pointlessly precise conformity, fussiness about trivialities, or exaggerated propriety, especially in a self-righteous or irritating manner. c. Synonyms: prude, puritan, bluenose.

Emphasis added.

No, not a "prig."

One of the lame networks just broke into a program with "breaking news" that she has voluntarily withdrawn her consideration for Secretary of State. I wouldn´t be so sure it was all her decision alone. Letting her announce her own withdrawal might be a soft way of letting Bamster off the hook and avoids outright, overt rejection of the candidate. Wink wink Bamster.

Well sometimes just like the old video game "Phoenix" if one fires away long enough the house is going to explode. We won on this one.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food.

One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

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

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.
