Susan Collins blasts Susan
Rice after meeting

Politico, by Scott Wong & Seung Min Kim

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/28/2012 6:17:06 PM

Susan Rice’s already fading chances of becoming the next secretary of state suffered another serious blow Wednesday courtesy of moderate GOP Sen. Susan Collins. Rice, the U.N. ambassador, will need the support of a handful of Republicans if she expects to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But Collins emerged from a face-to-face meeting and blasted Rice’s response to the Benghazi attack — the latest of several Republicans this week to signal that a Rice nomination will have real trouble getting through the Senate.

It must have been a pretty bad meeting when the media´s favorite Republican comes away unimpressed.

Susan Rice should be the next Ambassador to Libya w/o any extra security.

That´s right, if she comes out and opposes Traitor John as well, then I´ll be impressed. Rice may be the most incompetent, anti-American joke in this sad sack Administration, and that´s saying something.

If Susan Collins who votes further left than most democrats, can´t accept Ambassador Rice´s explanations then she doesn´t stand a chance for the SoS job. I don´t think Kerry does either but it´ll be fun trying to have him produce his military records. The quality of Obamas staff appointments so far has been uniformly low. I don´t expect it to get any better!

FTA: But one GOP senator told POLITICO Wednesday that McCain, Graham and Ayotte were so incensed after their powwow with Rice because they felt she was not being straight or candid with them about Benghazi

Powwow? Maybe Barry should just wait till after the New Year when Lizzie Warren (D-Cherokee Nation) can join in on the discussions.

If the Sens really think she is a possible nominee (and not just a way to get Repubs to further P off the black and female vote), then one of them should just say "A nomination of Susan Rice for Secretary of State can only be saying one thing: the President thinks Sen. Kerry is not qualified for the job".

I´m starting to get the sense that the WH Choom Gang is laffing their arses off at us - McCain/Graham, Ayotte/Collins - all of us spinning our heads over Susan Rice, when they planned something else, someone else, all along.

How John McCain can even LOOK at John Kerry even in the Senate knowing what J´Effin did and said about U.S. soldiers at the very time he, McCain, was in the Hanoi Hilton ... I´ll never know.

But then, I can´t pretend to EVER get inside the heads of our elected Super-Smarts.

Part of this is policy but a lot is personality. Rice has made a lot of enemies over the years and the Sec of State job requires someone with a lot more tact than Rice. Obama may be as shocked as GHW Bush was when his nomination of John Tower for Defense crashed.

FTA: Rice acknowledged this week that she had mistakenly described the attack as something spontaneous rather than premeditated. But she said neither she nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the public.

I just read her bio at Wikipedia (don´t laugh) and it is not exactly a glowing bio. I always thought Wikipedia was written by the person or family of the personality in question.

Rice has a history of making "mistakes" and lots of people died. In many of her positions, she was simply too inexperienced, which surprisingly, is stated in the Wikipedia entry.

I really think Obama thought when he made Susan Rice the UN Ambassador, the morons who voted for him would think he was just elevating Condi Rice. They would only see the name Rice and not know the difference. Republicans should come out and publicly say "Susan Rice is no Condi Rice!"

Obama is flexing his potus muscles with Rice. I suspect for effect, to appease his black base and to show he´s appreciative for their efforts. He will select either Kerry or as #11 predicts, Jon Huntsman. If he selects Kerry, they may likely lose a senate seat. Therefore it could possibly be Huntsman.

When you´ve lost Susan Collins...
# 31 Collins compensates for her speech impediment by speaking very slowly and deliberately,
which gives the impression
she´s not a quick thinker.
Barry´s obvious speech impediment has never once been acknowledged by his adoring media.
If George Bush had the same impediment , every time he spoke in public, the media would preface their report by mentioning the sibilance problem.
And when they asked him questions at a press conference,
they would collaborate
so all his answers required the use of the letter " S ".

Hi folks. I am was as frustrated as anyone else re the lack of outrage coming from Repub big wheels in our Congress. Then I come across an article that shed a little light on the issue. In 1982 to settle a lawsuit the RNC and RSC entered into an agreement or Consent Decree which is national in scope. (Cant be racist). It limited RNCs ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtained court approval. Any prescint with majority of minority voters was off limits to voter screening. End result-- NO VOTER monitoring allowed by GOP. Google it for more prescise explanations. Case pending in SCOTUS, 30 years later. Goodby GOP.

#12, "The spine donor republican´s" aren´t going to do anything because Collins and the entire repub party are fully complicit and onboard Obama´s statist agenda.

What we are watching from Collins and the others on Benghazi is a smokescreen and pure "Theatre" to make us think they are putting up a fight against the dems. They are not. Just as their protests about new taxes are phony. They will cave on everything including the ´Dream Act´ while we are focusuing on Benghazi and the upcoming Christmas Holiday´s. The same tactic the repubs used before they caved to Obama by design,on virtually everything during the 2010 lame Duck session during the week leading up to Christmas. They mean to drag out Benghazi untill the Christmas vacation hoping we will foget about it by the time they return,much like Issa and Boehner dragged out ´Fast and Furious´ with their ´Good cop,Bad cop´ routine. Anyone heard about ´Fast and Furious´ lately? I didn´t think so. And 300 mexican´s and two American Border Patrol agents were murdered in that one and all as a pretext to take away our God Given second Ammendment Right´s.

They are all collaborative Traitors in both Parties. WE need a Third Party Now!

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

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

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. 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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
