Susan Rice as national security adviser? U.N. ambassador said to be front-runner
WaPo ^

Posted on 03/10/2013 8:16:15 AM PDT by chessplayer

UNITED NATIONS — Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who lost out in a bruising bid for the job of secretary of state, may have the last laugh.

Rice has emerged as far and away the front-runner to succeed Thomas E. Donilon as President Obama’s national security adviser later this year, according to an administration official familiar with the president’s thinking. The job would place her at the nexus of foreign-policy decision making and allow her to rival the influence of Secretary of State John F. Kerry in shaping the president’s foreign policy.

This would have been a lot easier if Obama just asked Putin to make the recommendations....

The way it looks, he probably did.

A perfect time to get Benghazi back in the news (to the extent they ever covered it the first time).

What in the hell really qualifies this woman to be a National Security Adviser? Really.....

Hell, I think I’ll go be a National Security Adviser. If she can do it, I guess pretty much anybody can!

Read Susan Rice’s bio and you will see a garden variety silver spoon type who, despite occasional stretches overseas, has been raised in the kind of hermetically sealed liberal hothouse that has produced far too many of our ‘diplomats.’

They are unqualified to represent American interests at home or abroad because, put simply, they haven’t the first clue about those interests given their perpetual groupthink.

But even if she were George S. Patton reincarnate in terms of outlooks, her demonstrated willingness to lie repeatedly on cue, on camera should disqualify her for any post.

Isn’t it ironic that gummint paper-shufflers are subjected to polygraphs about smoking grass in junior high while high-level State Dept officials are not only permitted, but encouraged to lie publicly when Americans die abroad?

Just when you think you have heard it all - can”t tell the truth about Benghazi security, so why not advise on USA security?

Well, it would certainly fill the prerequisite of being “in your face” like everything else Obastard does.

Grassley: Obama thinks he doesn’t need Congress
By Josiah Ryan - 01/26/12 02:46 PM ET

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a fierce good-government advocate, slammed President Obama on Thursday, saying he is behaving as if he is not accountable to Congress and the American people.

“The president has decided he doesn’t need Congress at all,” said Grassley, in a speech delivered from the Senate floor.

Another classic of 0bama telling the American people, the House and Senate “I don’t care what you don’t want, I will have my way.”

This entire administration is filled from top to bottom with shiftless liars.

Whoever it is will be a communist and bring with them their train of communists. We are so completely compromised, one more won’t make a damned bit of difference.

Yeah....get some unqualified minority who the Administration chose a loyal sacrifice to get up and tell the world a pack of lies about a planned anniversary terrorist attack against a covert Behnghazi facility that was involved in gun-running for Muslims, and make her a National Security Advisor. Nope, nothing wrong with that. It’s okay....she’s black and she’s loyal to Obama...

Bushbacker1 ~:” The Ricester can tell us all about THE video again, and again and again, and again and again and one more time or two, from a position of knowledge! /S Just can’t be sarcastic enough... “

The political payoff for standing with Obama (LIE)
Even the press couldn’t do it anymore ~ so the press ignored the issue. (IGNORE)
THe testimonhy of Hilldebeast was delayed for 5 months (DELAY and DENY)

The hallmrk of the current administration: lie , ignore , delay and deny !

He knows she isn’t qualified to even pick up litter with a pointy stick. He’s doing it out of spite to rub the GOP’s face in it. We have a 10 year old in the WH.
