Obama dares McCain: Go after Susan Rice and ‘you’ve got a problem with me’

Posted by   + Show Post

President Barack Obama on Wednesday lashed out at Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for their “outrageous” attacks on U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice “because they think she’s an easy target” and dared them to “go after me” instead.

During a press conference on Wednesday, ABC’s Jonathan Karl noted that McCain and Graham had threatened to block Rice if she was nominated to be secretary of state because she repeated an incorrect CIA judgement that September the attacks in Benghazi that killed four Americans had been a reaction to an anti-Muslim video.

“Let me say specifically about Susan Rice, she has done exemplary work,” the president insisted. “If Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.”


Obama said he would not argue that Congress had a duty to get to the bottom of the attacks, “but when they go after the U.N. ambassador apparently because they think she’s an easy target then they’ve got a problem with me.”

“And should I choose if I think she should be the best person to serve America in the capacity of the State Department then I will nominate her. That’s not a determination that I’ve made yet.”

I am not whining about anything.   I think it is hysterical that some of these women are swooning over obama and think he is such a manly man because he dared talk like that to a 76 year old man.   Barrack Hussein Obama, ummmmm, ummmm, ummmm  Oh yeah, a manly man

Quoting jaxTheMomm:

Then why are you whining about it?

Quoting candlegal:

make no mistake, McCain can take it.

Quoting AdrianneHill:

Don't forget he's also taking an effete, yet over aggressive southern boy with no extra room in the closet for skeletons because that's where he seems to spend all of his time.
One day, he'll come out...yeah, right.

If people don't want responses to their attacks/statements, then they shouldn't be in federal level American politics. If they are well enough to sling it, they are well enough to get it splattered on them too

oh my, he is such a manly man, daring to go after a 76 year old war hero

Quoting 12hellokitty:

Do you think Obama will stand up for Hillary's reputation, or throw her under the bus?

no, whining is what Obama has been doing for the last 4 years.  Bush did it, it is all Bush's fault.   Now that is whining.

Riiiight.

I like McCain.  I probably would have voted for him had it not been for the pandering which led to the choice of Alaska Barbie. 

He's a tough dude who I agree with on many things.  And he just went after one of Obama's cabinet members.  I would expect the exact same response from McCain.  You know, that poor little 76 year old man you are so worried about.

The way you swooned over Limbaugh for calling a girl a slut for wanting healthcare to help coverbirth control like they do Viagra? Funny.
