Deval has already said that he will sign a change in the law to allow him to go back to appointing Senators. You know, to spare us another controversial and drawn out election.
(... a.k.a. 'RACISM' don'tcha know ...)
By nominating Hagel. As I said Rice who was never nominated ends up NSC. Obama looks like the big compromiser, republicans attacked another person of color and he got everything he wanted in the first place. Weak? Yea, not so much in the end.
Today, that woman shouldn't even have a job at all. She should have kicked been out on the street a long time ago.
No matter what she says, it was not HER decision. She is a pawn.
She is as mannish and nasty as Moochelle. Maybe more so.
Demolexicon: Partisan = demands real answers on an issue that is not politically favorable to Democrats. Seek justice, though the heavens tremble, but not at the expense of Duh Partee.
And he is used to lying in front of big crowds. So he has that going for him.
That’s right, Graybeard58, all the appointees are really just obama using another alias. None are free agents in the least. Certainly not like a John Foster Dulles
Gutless, nadless, brainless.... and in their case....
less is NOT more.
Boo Hoo Hoo. Funny, it’s only “partisan” when it stings a lib.
If Obama wants to appoint a black woman named Rice to be Secretary of State, why not Condi?
She’s highly respected around the world, speaks Russian fluently, has never contributed to a foreign-policy crisis by lying on all five Sunday talkshows on the same day, and doesn’t have a husband who owns a stake in a major controversial oil pipeline.
It’s hard to believe Condi would take the SOS job if she has to keep urging Israel to stop building houses on its own land; however, if Obama is planning to take a ‘’benign neglect’’ attitude toward Israel, as rumored, maybe Condi and Barack can work something out.
Well, gosh, Suzy, too bad that video did you in. *snicker* so far, that’s the only damage it has done.
She will never go under oath now to answer for Benghazi. The House will not call her.
Gee....that’s too bad...
I’m saddened by it...
Unqualified Affirmative Action hire anyway. No loss.
That guy looks troubled.
disagree. I don’t think nominating an old white guy retread from the Senate who voted for the Iraq War gets him any bipartsian cred. republicans won’t be happy, and dems won’t, either. Hagel’s record on Israel doesn’t help him. Hagel is pretty much a dem now anyways, as he endorsed Obama and also even endorsed the dem Bob Kerrey for Senate in NE.
In the end I don’t think tehse appointments will really make that much of a difference. Obama already won re-election and doesn’t really care. But foe the small amount it may matter, I don’t think naming two old white guys whove been in DC forever like Kerry and Hagel really helps him in any meaningful way.
Yeah! Now we get Honest John Kerry!
The Swift Boat Vets shall return...Kerry was supposed to have released his medical records to back up his claims against the group back in the 2004 election cycle, which of course he never did.
Such a good soldier...took one for the team.
She’s only saddened that she got thrown under the bus for being stupid enough to lie like a rug for Obamao and get caught.
One down, too many to go.
Boo-hoo....you can't be Sec of State!! Maybe Raul Castro can get you a job as HIS sec of State!!! Or Kim Jung-Un
“Yeah! Now we get Honest John Kerry!”
Well in return we might get Scott Brown, a Rino from MA, is better than nothing from that State.
HEY ! We won one.
But too few and far between.
"Did the President offer you a promotion in exchange for lying for him about Benghazi?"
"On the Sunday news programs following the Benghazi attack, did you knowingly lie when you said the attack had started "spontaneously"?
Good bye to all hog and no hat.
Just keep on doing what yer told Susan! Step and fetch for that Uncle Tom Obama!
You may be right. The thing is most of the country still see Hagel as an R. Polls show republicans getting blamed for not compromising on anything. I think Obama looks magnanimous and republicans look like they went after another minority, yet he gets everything he wanted and republicans look bad. It makes it harder in the fiscal deal the more the country is behind Obama. Not about election it is about legislating and negotiating from strength. Of course I could be wrong :).
Remember it is all how it will be perceived. Isn’t that how he won....again?
Several of us pulled out that phrase for comment.
Did you notice that the headline was changed to remove it, and that this thread was changed without an edit tag to indicate it was changed?
Good news. However, I will miss seeing her being “Borked”.
Single middle finger salute on both hands raised in agreement.
Or maybe east LA.
Where are the Benghazi survivors and why hasn’t the media interviewed them?
So, what is in her past she doesn’t want anyone to know?
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Hey Rice, you still haven't told us what is being done to avenge the Americans murdered in Libya, you lying democrat b!tch.
Good riddance to a bald faced liar!
Your right!!! She is incompetent! She is way over her head now she shows up to vote like her boss! Zero!
I think you’re right. Worse, Benghazi may now die.
I imagine going from inside the bus to underneath the bus in such a short time can be disconcerting.
I feel for this poor affirmative action woman who just said what was ordered of her.
Obama will reward her nicely though, He would not want to rock that boat.
What kind of idiot would submit a letter declining a position that hasn’t been formally offered yet? You guessed it, Zippy would. Benghazi must be very damning. Congress needs to question Canadian and British Embassy since obviously the 30 survivors have been threatened.
Funny that even Rice’s statement today is a lie. The real reason is that she can’t have the job because she lied on national TV and would never get the job anyway. Not enough dems in congress would vote to approve her. Once a liar, always a liar.
Her record in the Clinton administration is much more disqualifying...and that could get a lot of attention if she had to face confirmation hearings.
Chuck Hagel could knock on the door of 99.9% of folks in the country and they’d have no idea who he was.
Most of the country doesn’t see him as anything.
Other than another almost 70 yr old white guy DC insider.
I’m not saying Hagel will really hurt him, but I don’t see Obama getting any huge boost politically. I mean a name I had seen mentioned was this Michelle Flournoy. Now, if Obama had named the first woman SecDef that would have been an event and may have helped him. Hagel won’t really make any waves or anything.
As far as what Hagel would mean for the military I’m not an expert on him(he seems to me like he’ll pretty much be a continuation of Gates and Panetta at the Pentagon) but in the end as long as Obama is in the WH the SecDef is really irrelevant. Obama pulls all the strings.
what a UN liar ... hell bound liar who just deceived the American people on multiple liar shows... liars all make it to hell unless ... but liberals hate and reject God and Christ... so good riddance forever
You mean now the post will have to be filled by someone other than the child of an international banker?
Children of international bankers in the administration:
- Barack Obama. Mom and grandma were bankers.
- TC Geithner. Obama’s mom and his dad were at the Ford Foundation running international banking.
- Susan Rice. Father was Emmett J Rice. Former governor of the Federal Reserve System.
Lots of bankers and bankers kids in this administration.
So you make my point for me. True nobody may know him but the media will tell us R so Obama is bi partisan.
Hadn’t seen that since you called it to my attention. Very interesting indeed.
Interesting - dropping out without ever being nominated?
You know, I’m glad to see Susan Rice out of the running . . . now I’m sad to see John Kerry in the running for the spot.
She is just afraid of what dirt will be found when we start digging into her background...
