Battered by Benghazi, Rice
withdraws as State candidate

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/13/2012 10:32:57 PM

Embattled U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice withdrew her name Thursday from consideration to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton after months of criticism over her comments about the terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, in September. Although the decision had been building for weeks, Mrs. Rice’s request was a stunning setback for President Obama, who angrily defended her in a November news conference and challenged the Republican critics that “they should go after me” over the handling of the Benghazi attack. Mrs. Rice has been

The false narrative is that the mean racist Republican Senators kept her from being Secretary of State, but they had no means to stop her. It is clear that influential Democrats behind the scenes wanted her out.

Forget Rice she was just a diversion from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton who should have been the target by McCain and the other silly senators.

Such idiots those Senators are but then they are all part of the good old boys club which includes Clinton. She got a pass.

This country is a mess. How any GI/or good American could serve this country anymore is beyond me.

This gives His Majesty a great opportunity to throw another name in the ring - Barack´s favorite communist/Truther Marxist subversive (and MSM heartthrob!): Van Jones. Who better to represent the current anti-American state of State than Van the Man? Granted, Hillary the Miracle Worker is a hard act to follow, but Jones´ seething, white-hot hatred of the US Constitution qualifies him well for whatever mission Dear Leader would assign him.

Nothing is ever as it seems in Washington and I don´t believe for one minute that she ´voluntarily withdrew´. Since when has this bunch ever cared about anything being costly and devisive? Obama´s own party was going to balk on this one. And they can shove their racist card. Being black does not sheild you from any and all criticsm.

Let´s look at character - Obama defended her saying the Republicans were talking badly about her. (he´s defending someone who lied - lack of character). She´s the one who went on tv and lied to the nation. If she was just a mouth for someone else, then she doesn´t deserve to serve the country in any way. She should have looked into it. Again, the death of the 4 people are being side tracked by this circus.

#1 is correct. The story isn´t about the Republicans who recently criticized Rice. It´s the silence from Senate Democrats.

I wish this was about incompetence but I suspect it is mostly about personality. Over the last 20 years Rice has rubbed too many people the wrong way. It was reminiscent of what happened when Bush 41 named the abrasive John Tower to Defense.

Yeah, agree it was a group decision for her to withdraw. Bamster is off the hook, avoided the sausage grinder confirmation fiasco and Rice didn´t have to go through rejection. It´s that soft approach for getting rid of a liability.

Word had it on Foxy news that pubs sent a message to Biden last week that it was a "no way" confirmation and even democrats had contested her. Did the DC fool learn anything, that once you hire a henchwoman to make the rounds with lies and spin, they´ve lost all credibility once exposed? Probably not. His affirmative action mindset of hiring people with no record, a poor record or recently discredited is on full power. The less the nominee has done the more eligible they are.

I love the way it was spun as "taking herself off of the list", as if she had the list for the day, like a library book someone checks out! ha ha ha ha.

She isn´t out because of Republicans. She is out because the media started printing stuff put out by the lefty base. All the ´old white men´ garbage went away when the stuff started coming out about her oil industry investments in Canada. From the LEFT, not the right. When you lose that base, nothing left to do but pull back and regroup. The Pubs had nothing to do with this.

Unfortunately, Rice´s withdrawal was not followed by her being frog-marched out of DC, never to be heard from again.

She´s incompetent, -- all I needed to read was the account of her activities in Sierra Leone. She´s gotten the affirmative-action pass her entire "career."

We have to oppose Obama at every turn. There is no one that can do the job. Hillary is/was a disaster and frankly flying all over the world doing what she does(exactly what have been the results of her tenure there)really hasn´t helped the US at all. We are being ruled by morons and children and we have to figure out a way to stop this. I guess demandining answers from the Preezy is the first step. No more letter writing. He needs to be stopped. He is the one that allowed our people to be killed. We know it. He must be accountable with a punishment.

all smoke in mirrors to give cover hand bamboozle the american people.
Several layers to control the news cycle and to thwart any meaningful converstion on The sinking of the USA.

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Many of the hundreds of people gathered on a recent Saturday for a free clinic are exactly the types of people Obamacare is trying to reach — generally poor in pocketbook and in health, who either lack insurance or whose bare-bones policies don’t cover vision or dental care. Despite an intensive effort by the Obama administration and heavy spending on outreach by the president’s political allies and the health care industry, the 500-plus patients at the massive traveling clinic in Buena Vista are either unaware or unswayed by the law. “Everybody here shouldn’t be here,” said

If President Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel get their way, a typical U.S. Army sergeant stands to lose up to $5,000 in annual benefits, according to a leading veterans group that is mobilizing for battle over the proposed cuts to the retirement, health care and other compensation offered to those who serve. The budget restructuring outlined by Mr. Hagel last month calls for a series of politically tricky compensation reductions that risk outraging active-duty and retired service members who signed up for duty with the belief that they could rely on a rock-solid pension system to help pay for

The DNC can put all the lipstick on the pig they want.

But it’s still a pig: Tuesday’s defeat in FL-13´s special House election, combined with other new data, suggests that the Democrats are in for a very long and brutal election night this November. By all objective measures, Democrat Alex Sink should have won Tuesday. She had statewide name ID, having already served as Florida’s chief financial officer. She had

At this point in a midterm election the smart contributor money in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere is trying to figure where to place its bets in November. Both parties are road-testing messages for the fall. That’s why tonight’s stunning special-election victory by Republicans in a Florida House district won twice by Barack Obama has national implications. Democrats are in for a “bumpy ride,” as Bette Davis would put it. Republicans shouldn’t have won tonight. Their candidate, 41-year-old David Jolly, was easily caricatured as a former congressional staffer and Washington lobbyist. He was vastly outspent by Democrat Alex Sink and her

The decline in President Barack Obama´s popularity has heightened the vulnerability of his fellow Democrats in this fall´s congressional elections, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. The survey shows that just 41 percent of Americans approve of Obama´s job performance, a record low for his time in the White House. An endorsement from the sixth-year presidential incumbent would make 42 percent of Americans less likely to vote for a congressional candidate, while it would make only 22 percent more likely to support a candidate.

President Obama has cast himself as the leader of a global coalition opposed to Russian aggression in Ukraine, but it’s not clear exactly where he is leading it. Analysts say key allies in Europe remain reluctant to take tough action against Moscow, recognizing the economic and energy leverage Russia wields over them. Although Mr. Obama undoubtedly has succeeded in rallying countries, including China, to condemn Russian action, it remains to be seen whether they will offer anything other than words and, in turn, whether such a U.S.-led coalition will produce tangible results.

In the next few days, the Senate will begin debate on the reauthorization of a child-care development block-grant program — a small, relatively noncontroversial program that is likely to pass. In this case, it’s not the “what” of the effort that’s most important but the “how.” The debate is expected to take a different course, with both sides getting equal time to make arguments and offer amendments — a practice that has pretty much all but disappeared in the increasingly partisan Senate. Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) is expected to cede control of the floor to the bill’s lead

Peter Beilenson dreamed of bright, affordable health-care centers in working-class neighborhoods, staffed with doctors paid a flat salary — rather than per patient — and lifestyle coaches encouraging healthier living. Tiny waiting rooms would reinforce the message that all patients would be seen quickly. A human would always answer the phone. Specialists could immediately be consulted by videoconference. And there would be free yoga. Such common-sense approaches, Beilenson believes, will eventually drive down health-care costs. Buried in President Obama’s newly enacted Affordable Care Act, he found a way to test that theory. But because of hard-to-resolve problems with Maryland’s new

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too.

The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican
