Susan Rice to replace Hillary Clinton?

She's "emerging as the favored candidate" for Secretary of State.

Her qualifications: ability to go out there and parrot the regime's talking points, no questions asked.

she's perfect.

EMD said...

Susan Rice should be dismissed for misleading the American people on the subject of international terrorism and the deaths of 4 Americans.

Lies like a trooper.

mikee said...

I fully support the nomination of the Obama administration's front line liar on Benghazi to Secretary of State, because the confirmation hearings should be a laugh riot.

Wrong link, Professor.

John Kerry kills himself 'in a style reminiscent of Genghis Khan.'

WTF?

Third lesbian female Sec. of State..maybe the 4th?

bagoh20 said...

Exquisitely appropriate!

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Chickelit:
Obviously it was her payoff for lying on every Sunday show that week.

But she hasn't perjured herself. Yet. Issa will have something to say about that.

Maybe they all look like grown-ups to Obama.

ndspinelli said...

And, I would NHAPWT if they were just forthcoming. Just interesting to me that has become the lesbian cabinet post.

Marshal said...

I find this hard to believe. It forefronts the Benghazi debacle in a forum the press has to cover. Someone's going to nix this.

Hagar said...

The present cabinet must be about the least distinguished in US history, so that sort of makes sense.

And the confirmation hearings should indeed be a riot!

Bob Ellison said...

Trial balloon going down.

2nd term cabinet secretaries are always filled with hacks. Always.

The new treasury secretary will be incredibly important going forward. Will a serious person be put in there or a hack? A serious person will guide Obama away from his inner beliefs and not back down. Will Jarrett and crew let him pick such a person?

I'm not so sure ... they ran off all of their economic advisers within two years. It's quite an insular administration.

Dave said...

Bizarre choice - so it's perfectly fitting.

shiloh said...

As if the con's hair isn't already on fire lol, Rice will make the entire Rep village implode! Heck, fixednoise is already makin' Rice a cottage industry ...

Dems have more votes in the senate, so Obama can do whatever he wants re: his cabinet and Supreme Court pics as well.

Reps current political reality!

Van Jones is available. He's not qualified for the dejure position, but he wasn't for the last one either. Making a political activist rather than a scientist your climate change czar proves you understand climate change as a political issue rather than science.

Since under Obama the Treasury Secretary's job is figuring out how to force business to undertake leftwing activism, like instilling departments of political correctness in finance "regulation" bills, it seems he'd be a fine choice.

John Kerry's "hands"?

Poor John Kerry-Ketchup!!!

Who's her "body woman"?

Shilho reminds: Dems have more votes in the senate, so Obama can do whatever he wants re: his cabinet and Supreme Court pics as well.

I'm starting to look forward to rancor.

Johnny Ketchup gets swift-boated again. Boo-hoooooo!

Poor Lurch.

Zero lied, how could he?

OTOH, who gets custody of Huma?

Yeah, gridlock.

Enjoy the fiscal cliff and Taxmageddon, especially on the farthings Axelrod paid you.

BTW, where were you 10/5 - 11/5 when the Romster was winning?

Hot waxing President Jarrett?

Tank said...

No.

Won't happen.

The MSM has already swept Libya out of the news. No reason to re-open that can of worms.

Chuck said...

In addition to the unexplained way in which an American ambassador and some other brave Americans were murdered in cold blood, this is why Benghazi reamins important!!!

Obama doesn't want a Susan Rice confirmation to turn into The Benghazi hearings.

That leaves John Kerry for Secretary of State. (He wants the job.) And Kerry-to-State leaves an open Senate seat in Masschusetts, for which Senator Scott Brown could run.

TosaGuy said...

"Since under Obama the Treasury Secretary's job is figuring out how to force business to undertake leftwing activism, like instilling departments of political correctness in finance "regulation" bills, it seems he'd be a fine choice. "

You are correct. I had the wrong assumption -- one where Obama wanted an effective TS in the traditional way. Van Jones would be the perfect fit for Obama's true perception of what the role should be.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

deborah said...

"The MSM has already swept Libya out of the news. No reason to re-open that can of worms."

Don't bet on it. This is the type of in-your-face move Obama relishes, and any Benghazi investigation is a complete dead end. All they have to do is stonewall, in complicity with the CIA, and point out that tending to the nation's economic problems is much more important, and that Republicans are being partisan, unpatriotic, and uncooperative. The final insult would then be to give Kerry SecDef.

Condoleeza Rice, Susan Rice.
Rice is nice for SOSUS.

She is only 81% gay. Less gay than Hillary who's 82%

Woo-hoo! Them's going to be some fun confirmation hearings!

Saint Croix said...

No way! She has to be confirmed by the Senate.

Saint Croix said...

I meant, ditto. Got to start reading 'for I start talking.

God help us all.

Perfect. She is great at communicating Obama's lies and bullshit.

We jokingly were talking about something like this at a wedding years ago. I conceded I was around 38% gay (since I'm neat, thin, and good with clothes and color!) My wife's gay best friend was then asked what he thought. He looked me up and down and said "75%."

He then said it was dumb to do because if haven't had sex with a man you were basically 0% gay.

The Beebs Blog said...

So say she gets the nod against Kerry and then comes before the Foreign Relations whose chairman is Kerry and has been kissed off by Obama.

Now that will be a love feast ?

Michael K said...

Kerry is a pretty good liar, as he proved in 1972 but he is not in her class.

Obama is about to do a deal with Iran. Jarret has been "negotiating" with them and Rice would be the perfect front person.

I have wanted to visit Israel for a long time. It might be good to go while it still exists.

Michael said...

She is perfect for the job, just perfect. Worlds of experience (see the Wiki article on her re: not capturing OBL in the 90s!) Although John Kerry being French could be of help as well. Why not have Co-Secretaries.

Michael K said...

"Blogger Saint Croix said...

Now we know why Harry Reid has dumped the filibuster,

LilyBart said...


After all the lying about Benghazi to the American people – Susan Rice should not even be considered a viable candidate. And the fact that she’s even in the running shows me that this is not a country that I can feel ‘invested in’.

Dear Obama, contrary to what you said, we are even MORE divided than we appear. And your divisive and derisive approach to running this country is one of the main reasons.


Peter Ryan said...

This is really bad news. Not only has Rice sacrificed her personal integrity to falsely proclaim a story she knew to be a lie, she appears to be rewarded for it. Thus, the Chicago Way is clearly demonstrated in Washington once again.

My wife is no fan of Sec. Clinton, but she admired Sec. Clinton's ability to appear "independent" of Pres. Obama during the Benghazi cover-up debacle. Now my wife will really despise Mr. Obama for removing the only "independent" voice in the cabinet. Another example of the Democrats' War on Women.

James Pawlak said...

Ms. Rice is a (Political) whore. Worst than that her lies supported the enemies of the USA and constituted TREASON.

Everyone gets a promotion within the inner circle of Urkel?

William said...

It's kind of in your face to even float her name at this time. Maybe that's why her name is being floated. It's time you Republicans learn who's in charge here.
