Republican Critics of Susan Rice
Ease Opposition to Naming
Her Secretary of State

Associated Press, by Anne Flaherty

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/26/2012 6:46:29 AM

Washington - The White House could finally have its chance to close the books on its Benghazi public relations disaster, as key Republicans signal they might not stand in the way of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to become the next secretary of state. "I think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told "Fox News Sunday." ´´But she´s not the problem. The problem is the president of the United States," who, McCain said, misled the public on terrorist involvement. Rice is widely seen as President Barack Obama´s top pick

They really need to grill her on why she was so active on turning BinLaden down during Clinton.You could arguably blame 3000 deaths and two big wars on that decision.

So, if our choice is lying, foul-mouthed Susan Rice or lying, turncoat John Kerry, I´m not sure I see an advantage or disadvantage to either. I´m assuming Graham and McCain feel the same way.

When the liberal Democrats pull the race card trigger, the wimpy Republicans just about always back down. It´s pretty simple, and is allowing a small socialist minority of less then 15% to generally run the country into the ground.

AP´s Flaherty spinning like mad with "Benghazi public relations disaster". An unauhorized war in Libya, an unprotected consulate denied security, an ambassador and 3 other Americans murdered by terrorist, a White House refusing help and a president lying about it all. That´s a national security disaster, not a PR fiasco.

But the AP just yawns.

Lindsey´s troubling and "passionately worded" first question: "Outside of the new middle east vermin we created in the ´Arab Spring´ knowing, in you, we are sending an even more offensive, butch, empty, exceptionally good liar than was the last one, would you say that the race card is your most valuable consideration for this office?" -- will be tempered to a more republican sounding, "Sme say ´Character is only a litmus test to those who believe a country should have character´.

Allow me to offer this, one more time.
Lisa Jarrett is the person running the president and his presidency. She is closest to him and to Michelle, and has advanced their careers, behind the scenes.
So if Susan Rice became Secretary of State, that might diminish Jarrett´s power and influence in the White House.
So Jarrett sent out the dimbulb Rice to go on all those sunday news shows to tell a big lie, over and over again. And Jarrett would know that the lie would collapse around Rice´s tiny head, after the election, which would make Rice unacceptable as Secretary of State.
But now it may be backfiring on Jarrett. Rice will be nominated by President Zero, and will be confirmed.
Is my hypothesis correct?

It seems the GOP has tired of being gang-beaten by the Left and their mainstream press for being ´the party of No´, and are feeling nostalgic for the days when they simply complained as they bent over to the Dems.

Will this reenergize the Tea Party movement and give Conservative voters a voice in Washington? Or does this spell the death throes of everything to the Right of RINO on the political spectrum?

Much of the blame should fall directly on AssPress and the rest of the Alinskian Propaganda machine popularly known as the mainstream media (but more accurately as the enemedia for their anti-American agenda).

#18 - Obama´s brain is called Valerie Jarrett, not Lisa. Valerie dominates the "left" side, and actually, only side of Obama´s small brain. The Lisa you mentioned is Lisa Jackson, EPA Marxist, who is known as Obama´s rectum for the waste matter she imposes on US business and citizens.

I think this will work out in the GOP´s favor.

First - criticize Rice and have B.O. come out and loudly defend her. Make a big deal out of it ... all over the media. Totally behind Rice.

Second - GOP announces easing of criticism, giving B.O. green light to appoint her as Sec. of State. At this point B.O. would look rather foolish if he didn´t appoint her.

Third - confirmation hearings - Rice has to testify under oath ... GOP can ask all kinds of questions that they wouldn´t have the opportunity otherwise.

And my Party wonders why we don´t always trust it? If Rice BELIEVED the supposed intel on Benghazi re: that YouTube video she does not really know her field: Africa, which is her strong point. And if she hit the 5 Sunday talk shows just to promote the Obama view, she is nothing more than a puppet, willing to go along to get along. Neither is a recommendation of worth. But then again, MY Republican party voted Eric Holder in without a problem.

The Republicans are gentlemen who give in to everything. They allow themselves to be accused of everything and never fight back. They give in to the most insidious of opposition demands. The don´t really want to lead this country. They just want to play golf and have a nice cushy job. Gingrich was the only one what was leading them out of the bog. And even Gingrich has that tendency to give up. They got rid of him and marginalized him. We need a new party.

Issa: IRS coordinated with
Dems to attack tea party group.
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/9/2014 6:08:46 PM     Post Reply
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa on Wednesday accused his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, of coordinating with the IRS to attack one of the tea party groups that was targeted by the tax agency for intrusive scrutiny and long delays. Mr. Issa and five other top Republicans said they have just last week been given emails showing Mr. Cummings sought information from the IRS about True the Vote, a conservative tax-exempt organization that drew the ire of liberals for pushing states to eliminate potentially bogus names from their voter rolls. Mr. Issa said the IRS employees appear to have

Imagine a world where drones never have to touch the ground after takeoff. That’s what MIT PhD. candidate Joseph Moore did, and now he’s on the cusp of creating a drone that can “perch” on power lines just like birds to recharge its batteries. Mr. Moore gave Business Insider a demonstration of the technology he’s perfecting by using a glider as proof of concept. In short, if a drone is equipped with the a magnetometer it should be possible to make the aircraft capable of identifying magnetic fields given off by power lines, hone in on the signal they emit, and then maneuver in such a way that would allow the drone to perch

The National Guard is following a direct order — but it’s not happy with it. All of the Guard’s AH-64 Apache helicopters are scheduled to go to the active Army, and there’s nothing its top brass can do about it. “None of us like what we’re having to do,” National Guard Chief Gen. Frank Grass told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, the military website Defense One reported. “My big concern right now is figuring out how I’m going to move, and how many states I’m going to have an impact on, and what’s the cost of facilities and to retrain pilots. I’ve got to tackle that because the decision’s been made.”

Nearly five months after Alec Baldwin was fired by MSNBC for using anti-gay slurs, the actor has again waded into troubled waters by sending a homophobic tweet to a former Mitt Romney aide. First reported by Buzzfeed, Mr. Baldwin got into it with former Romney aide Garrett Jackson after the actor sent out a tweet criticizing the Keystone XL pipeline documentary “Above All Else.” “The film Above All Else shows how oil, and keystone in particular, destroy our lives,” Mr. Baldwin said. Mr. Jackson replied, “Need to do a film on how you and Hollywood distort our lives.” The two went back and forth for a bit until

IRS workers in several offices have been openly supporting President Obama, including by donning pro-Obama paraphernalia and urging callers to reelect the president in 2012, according to allegations contained in a new government watchdog report. A report by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, released Wednesday, cited accusations that workers at a Dallas IRS office may have violated federal law by wearing pro-Obama items like shirts, stickers and buttons. The Hatch Act forbids Executive Branch workers from engaging in partisan political activity. The report comes as two House committees move to take action against former IRS

Washington - Less than three months before the Boston Marathon bombings, a bitter, frustrated Tamerlan Tsarnaev visited a federal immigration office in the Boston area and signed forms seeking to legally change his first name. Eager to recast himself in the model of a well-known rebel figure killed by Russian forces in 2009, Tsarnaev chose as his new name "Muaz," according to a previously undisclosed Homeland Security Department petition form, which was obtained by The Times. It was not only a tribute to Emir Muaz, a celebrated fighter in Russia´s Dagestan republic, it was also the nickname rebels had given Tsarnaev

In January, Iran began to slow down its uranium enrichment to below 5 percent — the level needed to use the material for military

The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,

Little Rock — An elderly couple was attacked at a restaurant when they asked a woman to refrain from cursing while talking on a cell phone, according to police.

In the surveillance video, a woman can be seen walking over to a table and pushing Francis. His wife intervenes and that´s when Thornton allegedly attacks her, pushing her into a table and punching
