Obama Bristles at McCain
Over Pledge to Block Susan
Rice Nomination over Benghazi

ABC News, by Elizabeth Hartfield

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/14/2012 4:09:52 PM

President Obama was visibly angry today after Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham pledged to block Susan Rice, a potential Secretary of State, over her role in explaining the aftermath of the Sept. 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. “They should go after me,” he said. Obama has not yet nominated Rice, but she is considered a frontrunner for the post. McCain, R-Ariz., and Graham, R-S.C., today said they would seek to block a potential nomination because, as Graham put it, she is “up to her eyeballs in the Benghazi debacle.”

Comments:
Bristles? He was arrogant, hateful and rude. Just like he always is. He showed more outrage and anger regarding this than the deaths of the four Americans. Susan Rice is just another in the long list of incompetent radicals in the regime.

[w/Sunlen Miller & Sarah Parnass]

Obama was his usual ugly self and he sounds like the backyard bully defending his turf! What a total fool! We need to support McCain in his effort. He is right.

Hey Bam Bam, actions have consequences. McCain and Graham aren´t a couple of stupid voters, journolists or ballot box stuffers.

It will sure be nice if McCain and Graham do their best to block Susan Rice but I´m not holding my breath. Show some spine guys; you and your party have nothing to lose.

I agree with the Poster of this article.

Does everyone remember how Obama reacted to the murders of our four Americans...because they were American?

Obama didn´t "bristle" over the murders now did he? He "bristles" when one of his robots gets caught telling one of his lies...but shows no emotion at all when four brave Americans are slaughtered by Muslim terrorists.

And then the drama queen in chief talks tough and says to "come after" him.

Got a feeling he will regret those tough fightin words.

Anything like this going forward from the disastrous Nov. 6th election is a joke. We´ve lost. The United States of America is dead. There are petitions for all 50 states with hundreds of thousands of signatures requesting that the states be allowed to secede (on whitehouse.gov). This has never happened before in any Presidential election. We are a house divided, and only a complete reboot initiated by Martial Law, widespread civil disobedience and/or a total financial meltdown will allow us to recreate what we once had. Outlawing the democratic Party would be a good start.

His Cagney imitation, "Come and get me, copper!" doesn´t play well except among other angry, nasty liberals, which we now know is half the country.

To quote Henry II of England, "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?" For four more long, long years, we will have to just endure this poop-storm, if we survive it.

Obama is stupid for nominating someone that´s right in the middle of the cover ups and lies on this story. Obama´s saying she said what was known at the time when they knew it was a terror attack the same day it happened. They had 5 days for another lie and stuck to the old one because they figured the media would swallow it.

Obama was perfectly happy sacrificing those people in the name of muslim outreach.

You´d think that someone like John McCain who spent five and a half years being tortured in a North Vietnamese prison camp would simply laugh at being ´´bristled´´ at by anyone and immediately reply with a firmer statement of his purpose.

But so far, there´s been silence, instead of taking the opportunity to fire back.

So we have a lighter-than-air president who´s never even seen the inside of a military recruiting office acting like a big toughguy, while a former military pilot-war hero refuses to stand up for himself, and his country, after a little pushing and shoving by a ninety-pound weakling.

Zippy said Susie knew nothing about Benghazi - - yes, he did - - so, ummm - - why did Zippy send her out to be the Benghazi spokesperson on five networks?

She knows nothing - - but she´ll tell the world what happened.

Yup - - that´s about the only thing in this disgraceful affair that I actually believe.

The reality is that those who are infatuated with Ø don´t care about Benghazi. That includes 50% of the voters and nearly 100% of the media. This will go away just like Wright, Ayers, Rezko, the phony birth certificate, Solyndra, and on and on.

If you keep harping on it, you´re a racist.

What will it take for the Benghazi incident to bring the Obamanation of Desolation down?
My guess is quite a bit.

Since Biden has admitted being in the room when the decision was made. That would mean that both The Obamanation and Plugs would have to go.

Third in line for the presidency is John Boehner. So for demonrats it is of paramount importance to keep a lid on this situation.

I hope they can´t. Boehner may or may not be an effective Speaker of the House but he´d be a far sight better president than the Obamanation of Desolation

Up to her eyeballs. Guess where this measurement leaves Hillary. Hillary is getting waaay to much of a total pass. The Untouchable One is skating, and means she is a big player in spilled blood--the perfect culprit gets a shut out pass. Untouchable. Period.
Obama? Probably he knows nothing, missed the debacle, and missed the call, and missed the situation room. Missed it. Because? Valerie didn´t tell him. She likely took care of it.

Republicans have nothing to lose now by calling this punk the liar that he is.
The truth is that Chris Stephens was hit in a gangland style because he knew too much. His protection was removed a month before, he was ordered to stay on station, and his friends were told to stand down while the hit was executed for Obama. He was a bump in the road to surrender to "the prophet of Islam." the chief jihadist is Obama himself.
Hillary, Susan Rice, the whole crew needs to be exposed, and while we are at it, impeached, for treason. Lay out the case Senators, and redeem yourselves.
Petraeus was being blackmailed to lie. Amazing how the military high command is being hollowed out by the skinny communist sabotaur. When are we going to see the military act against this domestic terrorist? Anybody brave enough?

"Benghazi" -- an event that will live in infamy for some, and as a book mark for others, like "Haight-Ashbury" -- is the signal to muslims he is "standing down" in the Middle East. What else do you call a "death stare" given to SEALs in peril, and now to generals who had access to all his secrets and agreed, "Don´t ask; don´t tell". Alas, Israel. "Benghazi" -- is also the cover for something as jarring and skillful as overthrowing the country with a controlled election. Maybe the IT work was sold to the highest bidder -- as in "Skyfall." According to today´s "presser", Mitt is immediately going to cross the aisle with some helpful business ideas, that he knows will be peed on. These are all very wealthy people who can sleep well no matter what -- in Mitt´s case he is performing as a righteous, if quiet man -- maybe because the New World Order "ship has already sailed."

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

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.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
