Embattled U.N. envoy Susan Rice is dropping out of the running to be the next secretary of state after months of criticism over her Benghazi comments, she told NBC News on Thursday.

Says the shameless partisan hack.
I guess Obama got served some FRIED RICE....
Yeah, he has such a mandate...
Yeah! Now we get Honest John Kerry!
And we are saddened by HER partisan politics!
Thank you God.
Cue the Nelson Muntz photo!
Guaranteed. And John McCain will rubber stamp his confirmation hearing, as was his plan all along.
And maybe Scott Brown then running for his Senate seat
Just go away.......
She lied for the community organizer.
In other words, she’s realized that only a partisan politician would vote for her.
I saw Brian Williams announce it. I honestly thought he was going to say GHW Bush or Carter was dead. He looked like he was gonna’ cry.
In a way, it’s unfortunate. Now the questions about Benghazi will continue to be controlled by this administration and the MSM. With Rice being questioned by Senate, more people would find out the truth about the lies and deception.
... who should get the John Tower treatment, but the gutless Pubbies don't have it in them.
Her confirmation hearings in the Senate would be a risk to Zero’s administration. She knows too much about the cover up.
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
Well, I for one will say “Thank you Senator McCain”.
Makes me wonder what the leftist freaks are going to dump into the news TOMORROW afternoon to be forgotten over the weekend.
Only ... after full and public document disclosure should the GOP demand it.
Maybe this is why. McCain moved to Foreign Relations, two days later, she’s done.
Saddened, perhaps, but not enough to admit her complicity in the Benghazi cover-up.
Susan Rice KNEW, long before she ran to the networks to spread the phony story about the raid on Benghazi was a reaction to some video that nobody had ever seen, that the allegation was false.
Like Susan MacDougal, the Clintonista of Whitewater fame, she will fall on the sword, before she would ever admit to her part in a cover-up that should have never succeeded.
I doubt you’ll be saying that when McCain rubber-stamps John Kerry.
To Democrats, "partisan politics" means holding them accountable to prove the veracity of their words.
Democrats want to be able to say and do anything that is expedient for them at the moment, and not be held tomorrow to their words spoken today.
To call them on their lies is to be "partisan." That's whay Harry Belafonte wants Republicans jailed for challenging Democrats.
They probably wouldn’t find out much more from Rice, but it’s true that Obama is dumping or silencing anybody who was involved with Benghazi in any way. Rice appears not to have known anything about it when it happened, but by the time she lied (repeatedly) for Obama, she must have been informed at least to some extent.
However, this woman has such a lousy track record that even a lot of the Dems couldn’t defend her. She was responsible not only for the shoddy management that let the bombings in Kenya happen, but for messing up a number of African countries in her passage through the other position from which she “failed upstairs.”
In any sane non-Democrat world, she would have been out of a job decades ago.
I suppose dropping out and acting all hurt is easier than explaining why you were so dead wrong, and why you were the one sent out on the talk show circuit in the first place?
saddened by partisan politics ....
Wonder if she will get tossed out of her present position. Another typical Obama low life.
He served in Viet Nam ya know, I wonder if anyone will have the guts to question his phony medals and treasonous behavior?
Where's that form 180 John, what exactly did Jimmy Carter do for you?
Only one person can give that order.
Not sure that would be much of an improvement. Brown hasn’t really been much of a conservative since winning the election.
Are you calling the leaders of the GOP gutless?
Aw, poor widdle Susie, went and got her feelins hurt by those nasty Weepublicans. Cripes, cry me a freakin’ river. Ever since Obumwad got elected, it’s been NOTHING BUT partisan politics. It’s Obama who has poisoned the waters and polarized the whole freaking business.
In addition, not a complete set among em...
She can catch up on her reading now.
“See Spot Run”
“Daze lotsa room undah Bronco Bama’s bus!”
IMO Rice was always intended as a loss leader, to support who they wanted in the first place, another anti-American, John Kerry.
If they’re gonna go this route, why not nominate Jane Fonda for the Joint Chiefs of Staff?
Obama, Kerry, Fonda... (poetic license here...) turds of a feather.
Commie professional ass-kissup to and for her commie bosses (Clinton and Bronco).
I don't think so. It was the Dems that took her down. Not sure whether Hillary, Lurch, or others. But the NYT hit piece on her was obviously sanctioned.
She had to drop out.
The reason is that the truth about Benghazi would have come out.
All we did was ask questions. The left chases out pubbie nominees with slander and libel.
I think that book was banned....racist you know.
