Republicans say Rice must testify on Benghazi statements
WASHINGTON | Sun Nov 18, 2012 1:40pm EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. lawmakers turned up the heat on Sunday on Susan Rice, saying the U.N. ambassador - seen as a possible nominee to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state - must testify before Congress on her remarks after the September attack that killed the American envoy to Libya.

**SNIP**

"She's going to have to come in and testify at some point, whether it's in a closed hearing or an open hearing," Republican Saxby Chambliss, vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told the "Fox News Sunday" program, referring to Rice.

"We're going to have an open hearing, too. But at some point, she needs to come in and say what the president or the White House directed her to say," Chambliss added.

What would anyone expect from an Affirmative Action success story, a monicker she’s been fearful in the past that would be attributed to her ‘success’.

Married to an ABC News Producer, graduate Stanford-wherever and Expert at wherever institute, Brookings Institute, etc. never had a real job, blah, blah blah.

Her qualifications were black, female, black, black, black black, advisor-to-Obama, black black black....

Anyone here expect her to tell the truth? Not hardly.

I hope they have someone with some cojones questioning her, someone like Paul Ryan, because if they really push her I think this woman will crumble. She’s lying and I don’t think she’s a Hillary who can do it under pressure and not miss a beat. Hell get Greta or Judge Jeanine to question her, they’re about the only talking heads on TV that will as the hard questions.

I suspect that some already know the truth, and if she sticks with the same story she will get her fingers slapped.
This sounds like a typical set-up designed to get rid of her.

That’s why the RATS are saying it is “sexist and racist” to question her lies.

In a normal world, you’d think so. But with Zero getting re-elected, Napolitano still in charge, Holder still in office, et al, they’ll just yell racist and the Media will chime in willingly. She’ll stay there and likely end up SoS.....

Unfortunately - I don't see this going much further than it already has. At the end of the day - this administration lied to save its political ass but - that's it.

Along with the cooperation of the MSM - this will become political theatre and the Pubbies will look like the bad guys by the time it's over.

I'd like to be wrong about this but I doubt the Republicans have the intentional fortitude or media expertise to see it thru.

Obama says "Wanna bet?"

I will give a dollar to a doughnut, zero extends a shroud of WH security over her to prevent this.

After all, it's a matter of law and he didn't STUDY law to uphold it, he STUDIED law to find all the ways around it!!

“While they’re at it, find out who gave the ‘stand down’ order.”

Yes.

WHO gave the order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?

WHEN?

WHY?
