Republicans Sign Letter Urging Obama Not To Nominate Susan Rice For Secretary Of State…

Posted by   + Show Post

 (WZ)

Which will probably make Obama more likely to nominate her.

Via The Hill:

Nearly 100 House Republicans on Monday called on President Obama not to nominate Susan Rice as Secretary of State.

In a letter to Obama, the 97 Republicans said the credibility of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations has been gravely wounded by her account of the September 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“Though Ambassador Rice has been our Representative to the U.N., we believe her misleading statements over the days and weeks following the attack on our embassy in Libya that led to the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans caused irreparable damage to her credibility both at home and around the world,” Republicans wrote in their letter, which was led by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) and sent to Obama Monday.

 Heh. A silver lining....didn't think of that!

Quoting Canvas_says:

Well at least if she is nominated than she has to answer all their questions during confirmation. It's a way around making her testify currently lol.

Which is exactly why I don't think he will end up nominating her lol.

The issue is we still do not know all the details yet.Jumping into pressumptions of incompetence and a cover up is still premature.

The blame is best put on the intelligence committee.When it comes to Susan Rice she was just doing her job as she has for 20 years.If she changed the words that were given to her from intelligence....we would then be having yet another conversation about her being incompetent.

No democrats that voted for the Iraq War? Clinton? Biden? Reid? Kerry?

Quoting MsDenuninani:

The exact same conservatives who were in an uproar when Condalezza Rice was nominated in 2004, because she had completely lost credibility over the Iraq war.

Oh, wait.

 

I'm pretty sure they all did.  And I hope that we've all learned a lesson, everyone.

But that doesn't change the fact that certain  Republicans, in seeking to block a Susan Rice nomination, are hypocrites.

sorry, aint' gonna happen.    Too many people turn the blind eye to this Prez as to why he does what he does.    There has been and always will be watchdogs- to sniff out and expose his less than honnorable doings.  
He's been given another 4 years to 'stick it to us'  and since we care about what's going on, we are going to speak up.

I agree. Look at her record over the past 20 years and judge her on that. Not what she was TOLD to say by the Intelligence community. Why throw her under the bus for doing her job? 

It just makes the GOP look like a bunch of peevish, old white men which does nothing for the party. And what are they doing to investigate the bigger question, why was she given this statement by the intelligence community?
