Congresswomen Rally to Defense of Susan Rice
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 16 Nov 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 11/16/2012 11:48:20 PM PST by John Semmens

U.N. ambassador Susan Rice has come under criticism from Senators John McCain (R-Az) and Linsey Graham (R-SC) for lying about the September 11th attack on the Behghazi Consulate. A dozen female members of the House of Representatives have rallied to her defense.

“Ambassador Rice was just following orders,” Representative Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) declared. “Laying the blame on her is racist and sexist.” Fudge compared the Senators' attack on Rice to “blaming a prostitute for sticking up for her pimp. What's she supposed to do when her boss gives the marching orders? You know he's got her in a vise. You know she could lose her job or worse if she crosses him.”

Representative Gwen Moore (D-Wisc) characterized Rice as “a virtual battered woman. Their real beef is with the President. They can't get him to answer their questions so they take out their frustration on the person he's designated as his spokesperson.” Moore suggested that “President Obama should consider dismissing them as Senators for behavior unworthy of that office.”

Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) argued that “these Senators' threat to block Ambassador Rice's elevation to Secretary of State is futile and misguided. Suppose she did lie about Benghazi. Well, lying for one's country is what the nation's top diplomat is expected to do. So, even if what they charge is true it is hardly disqualifying. Besides, they can't stop her from becoming Secretary of State if the President wants her.”

Testimony from former CIA Director David Patraeus would seem to bolster the case for Rice merely being a dutiful messenger. Patraeus told a congressional hearing this week that “we knew from the outset that what was happening at the Consulate was a terrorist attack. This assessment was subsequently altered by the Obama Administration. Ambassador Rice was merely carrying forward a message that the President had determined best suited the needs of the country as he saw it.”

Seems to me that this satire is pretty close to the mark of this administration.

Thank You, John Semmens. I always look forward to your truth.

The new race card, womens rights! even when thier wrong. This allows them NOT to be critisized and or questioned on anything they support, encourage or do. This is the kinder gentler early showings of totalitarianism where the end result would be death for the thought of critisizing or questioning. We are being weened and suckled into our demise.

My grandfather was approaching middle age when Women’s Sufferage came to the vote. He told me he was all for giving women the vote and glad at the time when they won. He said the ‘old men’, many who had fought in the Civil War, shook their heads and said it was a bad mistake. Shortly before my grandfather died he too shook his head and said, “It was a very bad mistake.”

I have a great friend from the Phillipines that once told me when a water buffalo is to be slaughtered for meat by a rural farmer that he must remove the beast to a remote location from his farm for butchering or the other beasts would gather together becoming beligerent and agressive for days if they were in the vicinity of the butchering.

The fact is, there are those who duck behind gender and race (”Don’t hit the girl!” or “Why you always picking on the poor black folk?”), but there is such a thing as bullying from a seemingly inferior position, to use this as a form of tyranny, by appealing to a sense of “fairness” in the minds of others, while simultaneously applying no such standard of “fairness” in their own conduct.

A completely amoral and dirty means of combatting the good intentions of others.

,,,,,, then it is also racist and sexist to attack Geo. W. Bush by the left’s standards . By their standard no one can be attacked for their stupidity , ignorance , lies , corruption , criminal activity , sedition , treason , and on and on . The standards of these people are rediculous ,, we attack you ( Sarah Palin for instance )but don’t you dare attack us .

When anything goes in a society ,,,, soon everything is gone . The frog is warming up .

The blame game again. Race card, gender card, whatever card the Democrats can find they’ll use it to defend their own. We really are a ruined country now. There’s no doubt about that now.

Has she come out and said that she was repeating what she was told to say? Apparently, this is the truth.

Now is her opportunity to defend herself.

And then ask her if she still believes that it was a spontaneous attack. If she still tows the party line then it will show a lack of integrity and that she is simply a puppet of the Obama admin and that she has no thoughts of her own. Certainly not good qualifications for Sec of State.

Suppose she did lie about Benghazi. Well, lying for one's country is what the nation's top diplomat is expected to do.

This woman represents DC. Lying is expected.

The link at the top of the post includes the word satire. The URL provided at the bottom indicates it is satire of the news for November 18. The author obviously cannot very well control the IQ of the reader. I suspect some that forward the text do not want others to know it isn't fact with an intention to stir the pot.
