It’s a close call on
Susan Rice

Washington Post, by David Ignatius

Original Article

Posted By:LadyVet, 12/1/2012 7:48:30 PM

The Republican assault on Susan Rice is a fabricated scandal, attacking her for repeating CIA talking points, almost verbatim, to explain the Benghazi attacks. The U.N. ambassador’s version, even with its omissions, may turn out to be closer to the truth than some of the inflammatory GOP rhetoric. But just because Rice is being unfairly pilloried, this doesn’t mean she would be a good secretary of state. And it’s a close call on the merits: Given her friendship with President Obama, she would be uniquely able to speak as his emissary. But she would also carry some baggage

Comments:
Read further down in the article where he points out that Rice is profane and "mercurial." He also claims that John F´n Kerry would be "loyal" and "discreet." Wrong. Loyal is not a word to associate with Kerry. He should have been tried for treason long ago.

The first line is an obvious lie.

Though the title would indicate the writer has doubts about Rice, I´m not going to wade through more of this flack´s lies to get to the tiny nugget of doubt he feels forced to admit.

Too close to call.

Pretty much true of everything in the Obamanation regime.

Questioning officials when they´ve disseminated false information to the American people is not an "assault."

It´s a duty.

If the press bothered asking questions Americans want asked, the Republicans wouldn´t have to do it themselves.

My comment on Washington Post website for David Ignatius:
Hey David, are you really stupid, or just play one on the net? Or, you are just another lapdog, just repeting the administration talking points. "...fabricated scandal, attacking her for repeating CIA talking points" is the perfect lie. Just want to remind you that Petreaus report didn`t mention anything about demonstrations against any video. I am sure you just overlooked this little detail, but you call yourself a journalist. SHAME

Ignatius is naive. We have already seen the Obama shape of foreign policy to come in Cambodia, where all the Asian nations decided to form their own alliance without the U.S. A black militant with a grievance complex like Rice will only annoy them more. Rice have any understanding of Latin America? I don´t think so - she was hollering that what happened in Honduras was a coup without any information, alienating that nation on the first shot. She has no understanding or appreciation of any of the other nations, either. Her Africa experience is pure Dreams From My Father aggrieved black militancy, described by Dinesh d´Souza.

What gets me is that people like David don´t know that we can see right through their rhetoric. People who want to believe this administration can be fooled but not those that know what propaganda is.

Susan Rice spewed the talking points given her by this administration and likely knew she was lying because the Obama administration was trying to lie to cover their failures before the election.

She is loyal to Obama, no doubt, but lying for you boss is not what America is about and shows her lack of character. Truth is not a priority with this administration, forwarding your agenda is and Susan did just that and will be rewarded by her boss for it.

The Benghazi/Susan Rice imbroglio is a distraction from the sad reality that after four years of Obama´s ´´leadership,´´ the United States has such little stature left in the world that it almost doesn´t matter who our next Secretary of State is.

As long as Obama remains in office, it´s doubtful that anyone connected with his administration will be able to reverse the anti-American attitudes recently exemplified by the leaders of China, India, and South Korea who recently decided to form an economic alliance specifically excluding the U.S.

The only reason our current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is being taken seriously is because many people still respect her husband. Therefore, she can scream over the phone to Benjamin Netanyahu without being taken away in a strait jacket; make foolish statements at international conferences; and even be photographed drunk in a foreign bar with no serious repercussions.

But our next Secretary of State will be just another functionary whom few around the world will respect, and will respect even less if it´s Susan Rice with all her failings having been exposed at confirmation hearings.

Obama has hastened the end of the American century, and China and India are ready to dominate the next, with little interest in hearing what American Secretaries of State may have to say about anything.

Textbook propaganda from Ignatius; Pravda would be proud.

Interesting to see the technique -- start out with the biggest lie and throw the blame on the opposition for even questioning her fabrications.

Looks like the Left realizes the possibility of Rice getting shot down, and is trying to find some flimsy rationale other than her lying.

FTA: Rice’s biggest advantage is her closeness to the president. She understands his vision of a changing world better than anyone else in government. Her instincts match his on the Arab revolutions, the need to engage Iran, the importance of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. She understood that her job at the United Nations was to reset America’s relations with the world, after the George W. Bush years, and she did it.

How can anyone read this without feeling ill? I think I´m supposed to issue a barf alert. From what Ignatius is saying, it sounds like Rice´s mission as either UN ambassador or SOS is to sell out the United States. She belongs, IMHO, behind bars along with her boss in the WH.

Mr. Ignatius, the only thing wrong with George W. Bush was that he was too nice, when most people wouldn´t have faulted him if he bloodied your nose and that of others like you. The world respected George W. Bush. He took the fight to them for what they did to us on 9/11/2001 - most Americans knew he loved his country and would do anything, as any president should, to protect us. \

Ignatius and his paper can rot in hell!

It was a flight bound for Florida, and some airline pilots believe it also may have been a dry-run for terrorists. The 10 News Investigators have obtained an internal memo that details a frightening incident that brings back memories of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since then, federal efforts have gone in place to prevent a similar attack, leading many to believe another attack what happened on 9/11 could never happen again.

After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

Jacksonville, Fla. - A 16-year-old was arrested Friday, accused of attacking a disabled man pumping gas last month. Kevin Johnson is charged with abuse of a disabled adult in the Feb. 4 attack at the Hess station on Merrill Road.

Caraway told Channel 4 the pain was extreme for a long time after he was attacked in February. "I´m doing better, just taking things one day at a time," said Caraway. "My wife and

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Quoting unnamed administration officials, CNN host Jake Tapper revealed that the White House is “concerned” that Russia could invade South and East Ukraine “possibly as soon as this weekend.” He said that, in spite of Russia’s assurances that the large numbers of troops and military equipment amassed along the Ukrainian border are there merely for training exercises, the White House believes that Moscow could be planning a broader incursion into Ukraine. “There is now real apprehension that Vladimir Putin could push even further into Ukraine, perhaps as soon as this weekend,” Tapper said. He quoted anonymous administration officials who are “concerned”

One of four gubernatorial candidates introduced to California Republicans recently is a registered sex offender who spent more than a decade in state prison, convicted of crimes including voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape. (Snip) Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, "In my life, I´ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge." Champ´s rap sheet is lengthy. Court records show that in 1992,

They could make a movie out of Moochelle Obama’s trip to China, except they already have: “The Ugly American.” It was bad enough when the first lady and her posse of 70 or so coat-holders took off on yet another globe-trotting adventure, but then she said it was “rare” that she got out of the United States. And now they’re holed up in an $8,350-a-night “presidential suite” at the Westin Hotel in Beijing. Aren’t presidential suites supposed to be reserved for, oh I don’t know, presidents? Now we learn that the grandmother, Marian Robinson, “is barking at the staff.” Barking? Surely Comrade Chris Matthews
