Skip to comments.Obama Hits Back at GOP Criticism of Susan Rice: ‘When They Go After the UN Amb... (Racist?)
Posted on 11/14/2012 3:00:21 PM PST by yoe
President Obama took aim at Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham today at his White House news conference. In recent days, some reports have speculated that Obama will pick U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.
Rice made headlines after the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi by going on several Sunday talk shows and blaming an anti-Islam video for the situation. Her account turned out to be false, with the White House later admitting it was a planned terror attack on the U.S. Consulate.
Earlier today at a news conference on the Benghazi investigation, McCain and Graham said they would oppose that nomination if it is made by Obama.
Graham said he is dead set on making sure we dont promote anybody that was an essential player in the Benghazi debacle, and even said that he doesnt trust Rice.

I would say this...had Ms Rice declined the interviews after Benghazi....she might still have had a chance for the Secretary of State job. I suspect that it’ll be hard for her to make the cut, and they drop her within a week or two...offering her a job in the White House instead.
Obama needs to tell us when the intelligence changed. Obama told us in the second debate with Romney that he, Obama, called it a terrorist attack the day after the attack. (This is a false claim by Obama, but that is his story.) On the following Sunday, Rice makes her statements blaming the video. If Obama believed it was a terrorist attack on Sept. 12, the day after, then why did the White House (Obama) send Rice out 6 days after Obamas Rose Garden statement to blame the video? Under Obamas story, there had to be something between his Rose Garden statement and Rices statements that happened to the intelligence that justified Rices statements. If nothing happened, then Rice was contradicting Obamas version of his Rose Garden statement.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
My next question is what happens with Hillary. Will she get a position that puts her in line for 2016? She is every bit as radical a marxist as her boss, and the democrat party would love her as president.
Oh no....she’s a light-skinned black, female, and has the last name “Rice”. WAY too Bush-administration-like. Off with her head!!!!!
Hey Obambi, you a**hole......we don’t give a damn if she’s black, purple, orange, or chartreuse....or if she’s a woman, some form of LGBT creature, or male. Get it?
She’s a pathetic LIAR and a sycophant for you to manipulate. Up yours.
At this point she’s Fried Rice...no shot at SOS.
but then this is not uncommon in today's crazy world...
Sorry Obama, but Rice is a US ambassador, and is not a little girl who needs her daddy to protect her. And, further, nobody is “going after” her. We only want to get her to tell the truth.
This is contrived psychological BS.
Obama is putting a strawman up. Who the hell is accusing her of lying? She was doing what her boss told her to.
This is a simple head fake to take the attention away from him. First discredit the general. Then vilify the public for focussing blame on someone other than himself.
If the GOP were smart, they’d take him up on his demand. Go after the President.
Racist? I didn’t know she was black until I read it here.
Obama, Holder, and Jarrett are really into the “one drop” theory. Maybe there’s something to it.
With Obama and Susan, Jerk Chicken and Dirty Rice are on the menu.
(The jokes write themselves, folks.)
To be a good liar, you have to have a good memory.
Obama can control the investigation if its after him.
He is worried someone will roll over on him.
You couldn’t believe a word she said because she was no in the chain of command. She was given a script and followed it to the letter.
The President was the one who chose to send Rice out to brief the press and congress. If she was not involved..why did they send her to represent them?
That would have been Secretary of State. Is there any position that could set her up better for a presidential run than that?
She's not an economist, so I doubt she's going for any position dealing with the economy -- and those jobs could get her blamed if things don't improve.
Many of the other jobs are earmarked for one minority or pressure group or another, and they'd definitely look like a step down for Clinton.
She could swap jobs with Rice and go to the UN, but she'd have to face the fact everyday that she wasn't calling the shots anymore.
So if she's planning to run, she'll probably take steps in that direction, and get ready to eventually campaign full time.
If she's not planning to run she could become some sort of roving ambassador, but I don't think Obama would give her the job if her main interest was getting his job in four years.
I didn’t know anything about her race until THIS article, either.
I simply knew that she was not so smart and couldn’t be trusted.
Now that I know she’s black, I STILL think she’s not so smart and can’t be trusted.
Black? Hasn’t he ever heard of High Yaller?
I guess that nobody should question the King or his court...
0bama said Susan Rice “had nothing to do with Benghazi”. He said that today in his press conference. If this is true, THEY WHY DID HE SEND HER OUT TO THE SUNDAY MORNING NEWS SHOWS TO ADDRESS BENGHAZI? INSTEAD, WHY DIDN’T HE ADDRESS THE NATION INSTEAD OF HER? HE STILL HASN’T TOLD US WHAT HAPPENED.
He said they shouldn’t go after Rice, but him. That’s ok by me.
Rush intimated today that Rice was chosen specifically because she has an inherent inoculation against any aggressive line of questioning because of her race.
Obama needs to tell us WHO is this foggy intelligence...and does Obama's 'loud' defense of Ms. Rice remind anyone of the beer summit and Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.?
If Rice allows herself to be used so easily, wonder what else she has done for Obama and the United Nations...he assures us, Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi...ummmmmm........
Yes...the media which you seem to believe even now that Hillary, a look alike for Hyacinth Bucket's sister Daisy in "Keeping Up Appearances", will make a run for POTUS if Obama ever steps down.....Hillary is the MSM's choice...you buying that?
WOULD ELENA KAGAN BE CONFIRMED BY CONGRESS FOR THE SCOTUS HAD SHE BEEN A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE? NO, NO, AND NO!!!
For this reason, 0bama was never vetted. So he became President in violation of Federal Law. That he now assaults America with impunity because no one has the guts to risk being called 'racist' or even 'homophobic' (because the gays know he's gay. Ask a gay person if 0bama is gay; They'll tell you without hesitation, 'yes' or 'bisexual!').
You do realize that comments like yours are what makes ALL conservatives look like racist bigots.
Yes, in this day and age there are plenty of mixed race couples who have children!
Not sure what your issue is with it, are we not the party
who looks past skin color??
Bet Rice shares a gmail account with Obama.
Yes; Rush didn’t come out and say it, but it was very clear! Obama knows the GOP is so afraid being called racist that they wouldn’t DARE get tough with questioning her. Black, and a woman at that. (Those mean o’ white guys picking on the pathetic downtrodden black girl.) At some point in time, the GOP has just got to cross that line and do the right thing, without considering race.
Rice’s position had nothing to do with Benghazi, but it sure was convenient to have her stockpiled over there at the UN to haul out when needed. I can’t believe she’s not pissed to be used this way.
ask michelle who looks pass skin color....have you ever, ever seen a group of blacks. look at a white person and not be racist?? why is there Congressional Black Caucus in Congress??? and who is racist?
give me a break...
p.s. I'm tired of being walked over and stumped on..time to fight back and quit being a bunch of pansies...because we are going to have to stand up and fight back or forever be losers.
Jeez, I imagine my comment went right over your head.
Whatever, rage on. You look a bit silly getting worked up over a mixed marriage.
And yes, I know the blacks are THE most racist.
Damn Al ‘notso’ Sharpton down in FL causing his usual ruckus.
There was more raw emotion in Obama’s voice in one sentence responding to one Senator criticizing the UN ambassador than there was in his whole Rose Garden speech or an statement since regarding the murder of four Americans by sodomite barbarians.
Odumbo Standard Operational Procedure - when he has been caught in a lie - utilize the one insignificant rule of a black failure in leadership skin color.
the real issue it is not the color of his skin - It is that he is so thinned skin and without a backbone that he cannot handle any criticism whatsoever.
What do expect from narcissist?
Utilize the Alinsky Rules for Radicals - Polarize - Odumbos narcissism. Keep getting into his face about his stupidity because he cannot handle criticism.
The smartest man in a room of 3 year old in a preschool classroom is how smart he is.
nobama is SUCH a liar. He disgraces humanity by being.
noticed today she is back to wearing a hair band, like she did 30 years ago!!!her long hair would be find if she was 30 yrs old but she past that about 35 years ago...
better get off my complaint comments or American Girl 44 will strike again!
Not worked up over ‘mixed marriage’
just made a comment, that’s all..
but I will let your comments go ‘right over my head’ from here on out.
have a wonderful remainder of the week...
and HAPPY THANKSGIVING wishes to all.
