Attacks on Susan Rice unfounded
Washington Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/24/2012 3:45:09 PM

Since the Senate is solely responsible for the confirmation of Cabinet officers, it´s not often that members of the House of Representatives jump into a debate about the nomination of a secretary of state - particularly before there has been a nomination. That´s one of the reasons a letter sent to President Obama this week by 97 House Republicans, challenging his potential choice of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice for the State Department job, is remarkable. Another is blatant disregard of established facts. Drawn up by Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., the letter alleges that "Ambassador Rice is

Comments:
Your Barbra Streisand meter is going to ping as loud as Yasser Arafat´s Geiger counter scare. I don´t even recommend reading this propaganda from the White House. My point for posting was buried way deep at the end was the actual claim of "racism" of the "white" House members who signed this letter. And, it wasn´t subtle. BIAS abounds at the WaPo.

Unfounded=without basis in fact=unacceptable to true feeling liberals.
Facts are stubborn things. Amb Rice fed us a false narrative. It was known to be false in the White House at the time.
She has hardly distinguished herself in representing U S interests at the U N, after all. She has mostly represented the desire of Zero to make Islam look good.
She is pretentious, stubborn, and arrogant.

I agree that she is a good soldier. Put her in the front lines in Afghanistan. But not as Secretary of State.
We have enough sycophants now. We do not need one more.

Oh, well.

Reid will prevail, and she will be approved. He owns Nevada, you know.

And we all know the Democrats have only opposed unqualified and incompetent presidential appointees for cabinet level positions as well as Supreme Court nominees.

Give me a break. All those nominated by a president are political. The Washington Post is anything but naive.

When was the last time the Post opposed a nominee proposed by Obama?

The congressional black caucus are the ones who are racist. Four and a half years ago, a female governor and her family had a firestorm of hate from leftists rain down on them that continues to this day. Where was/is the defense of this woman? I say they don´t defend her because she is white.

Sorry - she deliberately appeared on all those Sunday shows and "presented" false information.

Might as well appoint and confirm her. She can take her place around the table with the rest of the administration clowns. Why waste a perfectly decent person ... appoint Susan Rice, she´s already corrupted.

Susan Rice earned the criticism by merit.
Thanks to her, and Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, the entire Middle East is more messed up than ever before in my lifetime.
So, am I reacist against the black, the white or the Muslim? Or am I sexist? Can a woman be sexist against another woman?

Susan Rice is either incompetent or complicit.. either way, she is NOT qualified or trustworthy.

Condaleeza Rice was at least honorable, oh and she was a Black Woman nominated by Republicans so the tired old race baiting argument falls flat on its face.

Breitbart in his "Big Government" link on January 22, 2010 posted an article about what Susan Rice was up to.In the first year as U.N. ambassador, she had a Lebovitz photography shoot taken at the U.N. at the Security Council office. She has the largest DC office and staff of any U.N. ambassador; and while in NY, lives in the penthouse at the Waldorf. She is often missing during critical votes and cares nothing for the interests of Israel. The most telling thing about her allegiance to the U.S. is the web page change of the U.N. ambassador: gone is the American flag and posted was the Blue U.N. flag.

Anyone with a brain who can read and has access to her history (her Wikipedia page is informative) knows that that headline is not true. She had a very bad history long before Benghazi. And her personality is not appropriate for a diplomatic position, particularly such a high level one.

Toughness is one thing. Coarseness, abusiveness, and the limitation of language that causes one to use expletives and nasty language are another. She is unfit.

FTA: "Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Rice because she is an African American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can´t know their hearts. What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy."

That sounds like reverse racism, to me. Being Southern, white, and male doesn´t make a person racist or sexist any more than being black and female makes one less accountable for lies and incompetence.

get back to finding a non metro sexual man not just a male and put him to work.

Btw, I really would appreciate it if people would stop using the word "negro". It is a subtle, but obvious racial attack because you know that word has not been used as an acceptable description since the early 1960´s. I find it highly offensive that people are intentionally using it.

Democrats love to play the plausible deniability game. Put out a spokesperson who has no knowledge of the facts, aside from what´s on the paper in front of them.

We know the talking points were doctored for political reasons. If she wasn´t qualified to comment on what happened then she shouldn´t have been on the Sunday shows. If that doesn´t reflect badly on her then it reflects badly on the administration who put her in that situation.

Beijing - A Chinese dog breeder said Thursday that a property developer paid him 18 million yuan ($3 million) for Tibetan mastiff twins, highlighting how the breed has become a status symbol for China´s rich. The large, slobbery dog with massive amounts of hair used to be best known for herding sheep in Tibet, but has now become a luxury for the ultra-rich who want to spread their wealth beyond stocks and real estate.

Why missing plane media

I’m now bleary-eyed from watching the nonstop television about Flight 370 — tough job, someone’s gotta do it — and my view of the coverage continues to sink. Since I’ve spoken out and written about reckless speculation and conspiracy theories surrounding the plane’s disappearance, other critics are defending the media’s performance. (Snip) My problem is the endless hours of cable coverage — with Fox and MSNBC heavily invested as well — creates a void that must be filled. And since confirmed facts are in short supply, that vacuum is too often filled with unconfirmed chatter. Reuters columnist Jack Shafer has a different view of the

Search crews are scouring the southern Indian Ocean today after two objects that may be related to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight were spotted by satellite, officials said Thursday. (Snip) Crew members told ABC News that they received radar hits of "significant size," indicating something lurking below the water's surface -- but Commander William Marks, spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, later said the radar return was typical, and not connected to the missing plane. Australia's government released satellite images of the possible objects today, described as the best lead at this stage in the investigation.

Four days went by before officials acted on satellite data showing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 flew for several hours away from the area being covered by a massive international search, people familiar with the matter said—a delay from which investigators are still working to recover. The satellite´s operator, Britain´s Inmarsat PLC, on March 11 turned over to a partner company its data analysis and other documents indicating that the plane wasn´t anywhere near the areas on either side of Malaysia where more countries and ships had been searching for three days since the plane disappeared. The documents included a map showing two divergent

New York Times blogger and Nobel laureate economist Paul Krugman believes that the right way to debate economic policy is to attack your opponent at his weakest point, rather than to engage your opponent´s strongest arguments. If we were to give Krugman the Krugman treatment, it’s not hard to see where we would attack Krugman: his attempts to write about conservatives. First Krugman admits he doesn´t read conservatives: “Some have asked if there aren´t conservative sites I read regularly. Well, no.” Fine. “Life is short,” Krugman writes. Then you would think life is too short to attack conservatives. But that seems to be Krugman’s

A dangerous Russian drug that has suddenly become popular in North Texas may have contributed to at least nine recent deaths in Tarrant County, including four in just the past three months.

(Snip) Phenazepam is legally sold online as tablets, pills or powder, sometimes in colorful packaging. Only Arkansas and Louisiana have outlawed its sale.

The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, enabling the agency to rewind and review conversations as long as a month after they take place, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden. A senior manager for the program compares it to a time machine — one that can replay the voices from any call without requiring that a person be identified in advance for surveillance. The voice interception program, called MYSTIC, began in 2009.

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Catholic League president Bill Donohue is blasting beer companies that pulled their support for the St. Patrick´s Day parades this year. Donohue Mondaycalled for Catholics to boycott the companies behind Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams for dropping their sponsorship of the parades in New York City and Boston over the refusal of organizers to allow gays and lesbians from marching under a banner. In an email, Donohue blamed the "bullying" against the parade on its "Catholic element." "I have had my last Guinness and Sam Adams. Heineken was always slop, so there is no sacrifice there," Donohue wrote. "I urge

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning. And he protested to him his concerns about these comments,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. The U.S., Psaki reaffirmed, maintains an “unshakable

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

First Lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by her children and her mother on her trip to China, which begins today. But she won´t be accompanied by the press. "Michelle Obama’s trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical, the White House says, a ´people-to-people exchange´ emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point, no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to give interviews while there," reports the New York Times. The White House is defending the first lady bringing her family along for the ride by saying

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed

“I think we’re in for a tsunami-type election in 2014,” Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus told the audience at Tuesday morning’s Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C. Looking ahead to this fall’s midterm elections, Priebus boldly predicted big gains for the GOP, especially in the Senate. ”My belief is, it’s going to be a very big win, especially at the U.S. Senate level, and we may add some seats in congressional races,” Priebus predicted. “But I need to and we need to at the RNC make sure that we can capture the positives and the benefits we’ve been

WASHINGTON—In what was described as a major ramping up of sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that the United States had frozen Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Netflix account, effective immediately. “Unless and until Mr. Putin calls off the annexation of Crimea, no more ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Orange Is the New Black’ for him,” Mr. Kerry said. “The United States will not stand by and reward the annexation of another sovereign nation with a policy of streaming as usual.” While all of the sanctions Mr. Kerry announced on Tuesday were Netflix-related, he warned Mr. Putin that

“Get red, wild and blue, America!” There’s a new trailer for Sarah Palin’s Amazing America reality show on the Sportsman Channel and it is way more insane than you ever thought it could be. The show released a teaser video last month, but it just consisted of Palin’s silhouette over an full screen American flag and quotes about how awesome she was. This time, we get actual footage from the show, and it looks… incredibly goofy. Now, it’s not that I thought Amazing America was going to be some introspective TV version of NPR’s This American Life with the former Alaska governor
