Republicans Rally Against Susan Rice

Republicans Rally Against Susan Rice
UPI FILE
Republican lawmakers don't want to see U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice nominated for Secretary of State.

Republican lawmakers rallied en masse this week against the potential of President Barack Obama nominating United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice as Secretary of State because of her involvement in the Benghazi, Libya terror-attack scandal.

The letter, signed by 97 House Republicans, says that Rice’s  actions in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack raise serious questions about her credibility and ability to hold a position of such power as Secretary of State.

“Though Ambassador Rice has been our Representative to the U.N., we believe her misleading statements over the days and weeks following the attack on our embassy in Libya that led to the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans caused irreparable damage to her credibility both at home and around the world,” they wrote in their letter, led by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.).

Though the Senate, not the House, would have the last word on confirmation if Obama did opt to nominate Rice, House Republicans have allies in Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham R-S.C.), who have vowed to block the nomination.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    A HALF-NEGRO AND A FULL NEGRO HOLDING TWO OF THE THREE-HIGHEST OFFICES IN THE LAND – WELL, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY “Not, likely;” BUT, AFTER THE RESULTS OF THIS ELECTION, WHO KNOWS HOW FAST THIS NATION’S “ROLL DOWNHILL” WILL GET.

    • Kinetic1

      CAH,
      “A HALF-NEGRO AND A FULL NEGRO HOLDING TWO OF THE THREE-HIGHEST OFFICES IN THE LAND” constitutes ” THIS NATION’S “ROLL DOWNHILL”? What is wrong with you? What has caused you to hold such animosity for your own race? Do you really believe that the color of their skin and their heritage is so overwhelming that it overrides their upbringing, education and experiences?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Kinetic1,”

        YOU AND I HAVE ALREADY HAD THIS DISCUSSION. YOU KNOW I HAD NO CONTROL OF BEING BORN NEGRO. I HAVE HAD TO DEAL WITH THAT FACT MY ENTIRE LIFE. I PROMISED MYSELF TO LIVE “MY” LIFE “MY” W-A-Y!

      • Patriot II

        Kinetic1, Tell me HOW, is the Hate of the Whites, (by the Blacks in this Country) Productive? What is to gain except for inciting and creating more Hate back towards them?

        What is the purpose of creating this new Band wagon of Hate towards the Whites. Is that what the Black Race wants? and why? -What is the purpose?

      • JUKEBOX

        Let’s see the mulatto’s suppressed college records and his passport records. None of our white presidents concealed these things.

      • Robert Smith

        Here comes another lie from the right: “Let’s see the mulatto’s suppressed college records and his passport records. None of our white presidents concealed these things.”

        Neither has President Obama.

        Check out: http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/obamas-sealed-records/

        “The idea that any Obama record is “sealed” is a falsehood, to start.”

        I don’t understand why this same old lie keeps coming back.

        Rob

      • Kinetic1

        Patriot II,
        Where are you coming from? I didn’t say anything about or promote in any way “Hate of the Whites, (by the Blacks in this Country).” I simply question CAH, who says he is a “negro” referring to 2 of his own race holding high office as a sign of America’s “roll downhill”. How questioning a man’s hatred for his own race can be interpreted as promoting hate against another is one you’ll have to explain.

      • Kinetic1

        Robert,
        They keep bringing these claims back because 1) they are ignorant of the truth, 2) they hope to make these lies “facts” by reinforcing them and 3) these claims somehow make them fell justified in their hatred for the President.

        Of course, none of this is news to you. We both know that when a claim is made by one of their trusted sources or one of their own, most of the folks on this site don’t bother to verify. I can’t begin to count the number of lies and half truths I have provided proof against, only to read them again on this site, sometimes in the same comment stream.

      • Deerinwater

        Just one more example of the GOP’s innate design to be predisposed to entitlement by design and genetics and suppress any and all those different from leadership.

        This statesman in question delivered a prepared message crafted by our nations top security officials in much the same fashion as Ms. Rice did for W’s administration.

        I believe this will be a fight that Obama will enjoy taking on, on principal alone.

        The end results will be determined by how solid of character this statesman has to offer us. Nothing is assured at this point. Other then the GOP willingness to waste time on smaller matters to avoid taking on matters of far grater importance.

    • Harold Olsen

      The fact that they are Negroes is irrelevant. What is relevant is their competence. All three lack any competence to do the jobs they have.

      • Bill

        Good comments Harold,
        Throwing out the argument of “You are against me because I am a…. fill in the blanks” is only a diversionary tactic to steer you away from the real story. They are just little children pointing fingers. A real adult accepts the blame for their mistakes.

      • eddie47d

        Then the Republicans should instead be rallying against Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh for they set your agenda and make you look like backwards Neanderthals.

  • Harold Olsen

    Big deal! In the end, the Republicans will cave. They’ll let Obama have anything he wants. He wants her to be the next Secretary of State so they’ll let her have it because their god and messiah wants it. Like Democrats, they worship at his altar and are not going to oppose him — at least, in any way that might be effective. Just token opposition in order to make us think they give damn about what the American people want.

  • Vigilant

    Although I’m very much anti-Obama, I think everyone here (and in D.C.) is off to a bad start, summarily condemning Ms. Rice for…what?

    If she was simply a willing lieutenant of the WH in getting out the disinformation, and she didn’t know the truth, that’s one thing. If she was fully aware that she was lying, that’s another.

    So which is it?

    Obsessing about it seems to merely deflect the attention away from the WH, wherein most likely lies the culpability. Obama says McCain and Graham should be going after him, not Ms. Rice. I agree.

    Lying to the American people is not a punishable crime. Lying under oath is. Put them under oath and prove your case.

    • Mike Austin

      Under oath like Hillary’s 241 I can’t recalls? That means nothing. Start at the bottom and punish severly until someone rolls over for the truth.

      • Robert Smith

        How American (NOT) of you, Mike. Guilty until proven innocent.

        Rob

    • George E

      Vigilant,

      I believe the root issue is that she, Ms. Rice, gave false statements to the press and the American people as to the cause of the Benghazi attack, and the WH has been unwilling to provide answers as to why that was. It isn’t clear whether she knowingly lied or just cited what she was told by someone else who lied. Stopping Ms. Rice’s appointment sends a message to the WH that they need to come clean.

  • God Be With Us

    Rice is unfit for the secretary of state. The president and vice president both need to be impeach. They both knew what had happened in Benghazi. This president is so full of lies,deceit,corruption,and very good at pulling the wool over our eyes. The head of the federal reserve needs to go also. He and Obama work closely to bring this country down. BEWARE OF FALSE LEADERS!

    • Robert Smith

      Actually America was in the tank at the end of the Bush beating we took.

      Things have IMPROVED since then.

      The stock market is up, housing starts are up, employment is up.

      Rob

      • Jon

        Yeah right, keep sleeping Robert. You are a sheep if I ever heard one. Employment up, if you believe that one, you belong in the WH with the liars there.

      • Proud to be a Believer

        I don’t know what rock you just crawled out from Robert. Oh yes, another 6T of NEW debt (most liberals don’t understand NEW as they say the debt originated with Bush) plus our credit rating has been down graded now twice and is in for another down grade. I guess you didn’t read of all of the layoffs that are going on nationwide and I don’t mean a couple of hundred, there are thousands. I guess you also don’t remember I forget which companies they were but they were supposed to announce their layoffs 60 days in advance but the WH said don’t do it we won’t fine you, you can do it after the election. Robert, welcome to Greece, and don’t laugh because that is where we are. Why do you think so much trading was going on on the Stock Market. People were dumping their stocks so as to be in under this years taxing but for liberals who don’t understand even Economics 101 it is understandable. Try running your own household the way the government does. All you seniors have you seen what your COLA is going to be this year, they might as well keep it and don’t bother plus Part D is going up 5$. But you are on entitlement is what they say, you had to pay for it but now that the time has come for you to receive it, it is an entitlement. Also, you pay per month for Medicare but that is also an entitlement. Depending on what happens the first of the year, watch for a mass exodus of people who can leave before this whole country as we know it falls apart even below Greece. Look what happened to Argentina while ONero dines on caviar and lobster!!!. This site probably won’t even be available under O next year unless they use it to trace the comments by people opposing their views, kinda like they found Petreaus and General Alan but of course Robert, I don’t think you have any idea about that either.

  • Chuck

    Just for fun guys consider this [please ignore race]
    If she read the talking points and knew they were not true, doesn’t that make her complicite?
    If she read the talking point and did not know there were not true, doesnt’t that make her uniformed?
    If she read the talking points believed when she was told they were true and did not check first, doesn’t that make her a drone?
    Seems like any of the above does not look good on a future Sec of State resume!

    • Robert Smith

      Hey Chuck, you missed one.

      Just suppose Rice and everyone else were all offering the best information they had at that time to keep the rest of America up to speed on what they honestly believed was going on.

      Of course that doesn’t fit the right wing presumption of guilt regardless of what the facts are, but well… Maybe you could try it.

      Rob

    • http://Squareone Kevin Wolfgang Cable

      Chuck, I truly believe that you could not have said it any better. You are a very intelligent man.
      Kevin Cable

  • Glen

    QUESTION FOR ALL YOU RACISTS. WHY DID OBAMA AND STAFF THROW RICE UNDER THE BUS, KNOWING ALL THE TIME HER TALKING POINTS WERE NOT TRUE?

    • Bill

      Glen,
      For lack of intelligent argument, throw out the race card. You sir, are a Dummy. And in the immortal words of Red Fox, ” You are not only a Dummy, you are a big Dummy”

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        GO AHEAD, “Bill!”

  • s mart pants

    There is no black race . There is no white race . There is only a human race . Rice in my opinion was duped and used to propagate the changed ” talking ” points to cover up the fact that Alqueda is alive and well and still hellbent on bringing death and destruction to Israel and America .

    • Mike Austin

      Duped? I think not. Willing participant. She made a mockery of the death of 4 Americans. Since when did the life of an Ambassodor from the USA become nothing more than something you scrape of the bottom of your shoe? firing is too good for her.

      • Robert Smith

        “She made a mockery of the death of 4 Americans.”

        And what did Bush do for the 58 who died on his watch?

        Rob

      • eddie47d

        Yes Robert most Conservatives still have C-4 strapped between their ears when denying what happens under Their watch. Steve is no exception and probably could care less about the 77 killed in one Embassy bombing/attack in 1983 Lebanon.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Don’t forget the 241 Marines killed in the barracks bombing in Beirut, also in 1983. Saint Ronald of Reagan pulled us out of Lebanon shortly after with hardly a whiff of retaliation. Osama bin Laden later said that’s when he knew the US was a paper tiger and could be attacked with impunity by terrorists. It is fair to say that Reagan made the first big mistake on the road leading to 9/11 (huge disaster) and Benghazi (small potatoes in comparison).

    • Joe Swartzburg

      wrong MoFo….there’s the NEGRO race….and its a heavy burden for America.

  • Mike Austin

    I don’t have access to the full intel agencies of this country but I knew it was not a mob.
    If she could not question that simple premise, she has no business working in the Gov’t at all. If she lied as she was told, she should be fired for the lack of integrity of the office she holds. So, STUPID or a LIAR? Hmmm… Both is my guess.

    • Kinetic1

      Mike,
      Do you hold Colin Powell to the same standards? How about Condoleeza Rice?

    • Right Brain Thinker

      Why don’t you people give it up?. The election’s over. You lost. There is no longer a need to try to make something big out of this issue for political purposes. If you were to ask the country to vote, Rice would probably “win” by as big a margin as O’Bama did.

      Yes, mistakes were made and lives were lost. It’s a shame. It’s a complicated world, people are imperfect, we’re “investigating”, we may or may not do it better in the future, but we have more important things on the nation’s table right now. End of story.

  • Wesley Vickery

    Should Susan Rice secure the position of Secretary Of State, it would indeed be a great travesty of justice. This woman is unfit to serve America at the United Nations, as truth is foreign to her – a prerequisite to being a Democrat!!

    • Robert Smith

      Thank you for so clearly demonstrating that unAmerican extreme right presumption of “guilty.”

      And they wonder why they lost in the election. Americans just don’t like kangaroo courts. It’s that simple.

      Rob

    OK PEOPLE WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE WHITS LETTING A NEGRO ESPICALLY A MUSLIM NEGRO IN THE WHITEHOUSE / WE ARE IN A WAR WITH MUSLIM TRASH ALREADY / THEIR BELOVED GOD ALAH CAN JUMP UP MY STINKING ARSE / OBAMA BIN LADEN AND RICE SHOULD BE THE FIRST TO GO SEND THEM BACK TO AFRICA WHERE THEY ORIGINATED FROM BACK UP IN THE TALL TREES AS LIMB RATS / I PARY EVERY NIGHT THAT I WILL WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND TURN ON FOX NEWS AND FIND OUT THAT OBAMA HAS DIED OF A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK AND THAT IS THE GODS TRUTH SO HELP ME EVERYONE WITH ANY PRIDE AND LOVE FOR THIS COUNTRY HATES HIM TO THE BONE / GOD HE IS THE MOST CROOKED LIEING PIECE OF TRASH WE HAVE EVER HAD IN THE WHITEHOUSE – LIKE THE KKK IMPERIAL WIZARD SAYS TAN IS GRAND BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL BUT WHITE BE THE COLOR OF THE REAL BOSS MAN – LIKE IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN NEGROS AND MEXICANS NEED A WHITE LEADER AND ALWAYS HAVE / LOOK WHAT KIND OF SCUM HOLES AFRICA AND MEXICO
    ARE RIGHT THERE OWN PEOPLE WANT WANT OUT OF THOSE COUNTRIES TO COME TO THE USA AND SCUM IT OUT TO FOR FREE HAND OUTS / DESTROY THEM ALL AND LET GOD SORT THEM OUT

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “shag nasty” – GOOD COMMENTS. LIBERALS NEED TO REALIZE IGNORING “RACE” SOLVES NOTHING.

      I AM A NEGRO PARTICIPATING ON A CAUCASIAN SITE. THE “BOTTOM-LINE” TO THIS STORY IS A NEGRO FEMALE IS TRYING TO SAVE HER CAREER. SOMEONE IN HER FAMILY (OR, THE GOVERNMENT) PAID FOR HER TO GO TO COLLEGE. NOW, SHE HAS THIS “BIG-TIME” JOB AS United Nations Ambassador. IN THE NEGRO COMMUNITY, BENGHAZI MEANS “NOTHING;” THESE FOUR MURDERS ARE OF NO CONSEQUENCE.

      FOR Ambassador Susan Rice TO BECOME Secretary of State IS A “BIG-TIME WIN” FOR THE NEGRO COMMUNITY. I GUARANTEE, IF Senator John McCain (R-AZ) AND Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) ARE SUCCESSFUL IN THEIR QUEST TO “SQUASH” Ambassador Rice, NEGROES WILL CRY, “FOUL!,” AND LABEL THEM, “Good ole boy racists.”

      • deerinwater

        Well, with no more evidence than is being presented to stop this effort , why not?

        It sounds most reasonable “if” that is all they are opening their attack with.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “deerinwater” – I THINK YOU ARE OBSESSED WITH ME.

    • Right Brain Thinker

      You call yourself shag nasty, huh? Quite appropriate since the definition of “shag nasty” is “A ball of dried s**t tangled up in your ass hairs”. You make Bimbam look like Martin Luther King.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        I LIKE THAT.

  • http://twitter.com/MrsJesusChrist MrsJesusChrist (@MrsJesusChrist)

    The GOP’s actions and statements about Susan Rice, Eric Holder, and any Black person in our 1st Black President’s cabinet clearly shows these Privileged and Out of Touch folks were born severely delusional, handicapped and retarded. In other words they are bankrupt of thought concerning the rest of US, and proves they are Deaf, Dumb and Blind Mice of Men who don’t even have the ability to change their white washed racist minds.

  • Ted G

    There is treason in the halls of power under this administration and cowardice by the rest to address it. Look, this is part of this administrations attempts to erode and undermine the US Constitution.
    They have embraced the OIC’s agenda to outlaw speaking the truth about islam. Obama and Hillary at the UN have basically supported enforcing insane blasphemy prohibitions called for under sharia. There is just that little thing called the Bill of Rights that gets in their way. They have been dancing around the actual words that would reveal them without a doubt as traitors with doublespeak and deception.
    The whole narrative and this fools policies have been in support of that goal. That is only part of what has resulted in the Benghazi scandal. There is no way on earth that they can spin this in any other way. Its obvious and its disgusting. Heads should roll.

    • Ted G

      Oh and BTW any and all of these racism accusations are nothing but an attempt to distract. Its all BS

  • brett

    funny how nothing in the article has nothing to do about racism. not to down play the muck up with the ambassador stevens’ death, but how does this compare to the pat tillman cover up that was proven to have a direct link to both cheney and rumsfeld? you want thrown under the bus? then how about the haditha killings or the abuse of prisoners in abu ghaib where low ranking soldiers were punished for following orders?

    • alpha-lemming

      True… the article does not metion race… but ala her defenders… that’s ALL they’re talking about. The “race card” has been very very good to them…. so good in fact that they now suffer from near Pavlovian conditioning. I’t's become their be-all, end-all default 1st answer to any and every percieved slight, political disagreement, advocation for mediocrity, or excuse for failure. And of course the tragedy of REAL racism getting ignored via “boy who cried wolf” fable.

      • brett

        you are just weird!

  • http://yahoo shag nasty

    no one is raceist here jeasus christ / the white race speaking of myself and all of the other whites that pay taxes to give away to the non white scum that will not go out and work for a living / a prime example look at the prisons in the united states 73% of the inmates are negros what does that tell you jeasus christ they are for the most part theives just like blackie in the blackhouse now not the whitehouse anymore / when he and his little monkeys are ran out of the whitehouse back to africa and put back in the trees where they belong the whitehouse needs to dbe demolished and a new one built to get rid of the rest of the cock roaches thay we missed exterminating them / i asume you are negro you see boy the white people are not racist we despise dumb people of color plain and simple i think every white family in america should own one / hell we have two of them but we

  • brett

    as for you, this is the very example of racial prejudice… and you assume wrong. you are more than welcome to secede, real america doesn’t need the likes of you.

  • standforfreedom

    Black,white, yellow, red, green, purple…who gives a rats petuttie! We real American Citizens are sick to death of the Communist and the Fascists who have taken over our White House and are bringing a systematic destruction to these United States of America and it’s about time we gather the Real American Citizens and get the Communists out of our gov’t. This man and his minions are killers of the first order, they are destroying not only our country but the countries of several other countries when they have no business to be there or give their opinion about how those countries should and will be operated. This world domination, world destruction campaign that Obummer and his devil worshipers are on will be defeated and the Fed will be dismantled and the TSA and all the other departments that are giving edicts to the USA that only mean total destruction of the land and the people that inhabit it. You are all useless eaters according to Washed Up Land – Land of the Perverts, pedofiles, ex-cons, mother/father/baby rapists (TSA) and you will try to imprison us in our own country and you will imprison us by wanting a useless carbon footprint tax and a carbon tax for all the vehicles and a complete takeover of our transportation hubs, our utilitiy grids, our water, our power, our very breath that we breathe now freely. Give us FREEDOM or Give us DEATH. Living in the USA today is a complete struggle for the middle class – we are being sucked dry. Sept brought 122K more layoffs. Our economy is sinking into the giant sucking sound coming from the UN and China. WTF is all this going to accomplish! Civil War once again?

  • http://yahoo shag nasty

    amen – stand for freedom – the white people are about fed up with obama hitler and his cronies – the white people will rise up again and take this country back over in the end this country was founded on white belief we whites believe in freedom we do not need a leader like obama bin laden does he is a rabid animal out after our freedom and our guns so he can finish taking us down from the inside out – i will slow down and let a rattlesnake cross the road – good thing obama bin loden does not try to cross the road in my great state of texas i do not think he would make it to the other side day or night you think

  • http://yahoo shag nasty

    by the way brett boy obama is a baby killer he believes in abortion wheather it be short term or long term / i heard a lady of color black color that is had an aborition in houston texas and crime stoppers there paid her 10,000 dollars for doing so

  • brett

    secede all ready!!! the real america, the one based on equality and freedom for all her citizens does not need your selfish, closed (manipulated) minded, backwards thinking. please, please, please!! form your own country and wall it off from the rest of the world so that you may leave the rest of the human race be.

  • Don

    These dumb a$$es would have you believe that skin color is the reason for blocking her nomination. Drink it up if you will, there are still some people among us that have the ability to see the truth. I agree totally with these congressmen.
