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!

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff.

The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

Hillary Clinton Commends
‘Incredibly Brave’ Undocumented
Immigrant For Revealing Status
Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/17/2014 8:14:37 PM     Post Reply
At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

EL PASO, Texas- Questions about affairs, death and murder were all part of a fourth-grade reading assignment at Pasodale Elementary in the Lower Valley. One woman who did not want to show her face on camera told KFOX14 her son brought the assignment home because he was attending another tutoring session when his teacher passed it out. She is concerned other students completed the questions in class, so other parents could not stop them from reading it. "How is she grading it? Is she reading it? I don´t understand that," Ursula Garcia said. Garcia has a daughter in the same

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
