Democrats never own up to what they do and media don’t insist they change their ways because in the U.S., that party has control of most media. The hoopla over Susan Rice, President Barack Obama’s UN ambassador, is no exception.
Democrats are now crying foul because Rice is being criticized for making false statements on numerous Sunday talk shows after terrorists hit the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
Obama, during the first presser he agreed to hold in more than 8 months, cautioned that Republicans wanted to “besmirch” Rice’s reputation.
It was way too late for Rice to earn a reputation, in my opinion.
In a sane world, Rice should never have been confirmed as UN ambassador, but who can figure out why Republicans cave when bad decisions are made by Dems?
As Breitbart News said, Rice has a “record of failure.”
For one thing, she and some others in the administration of Bill Clinton actually obstructed getting Osama bin Laden before he became a household word because of 9/11. The 9/11 Commission Report explains Rice’s obstruction (pg. 497)—as early as 1997, Sudan offered to work with the U.S. on terrorism. Rice and other Clintonites blocked the deal.
We still, of course, have reams of material missing on 9/11—Clinton’s staffer stole some of it from the National Archives and tons of data on Clinton’s administration later went missing. Standard operating procedure for Leftists, by the way.
Rice has certainly not looked out for U.S. interests as UN ambassador—she and Obama handed the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution over to Islamists. If neither Rice nor Obama recognized what was happening in Benghazi as terrorism, their qualifications to serve should be seriously questioned.
The fact Obama chose to be part of the sham the UN calls the Human Rights Council is an affront to anyone who values freedom.
One female Dem in the House said “women and minorities” are getting picked on.
Fact is, if you don’t want to be held accountable, Democrat women and minorities, then don’t serve in government paid for by U.S. taxpayers the president wants to fleece again because Dems refuse to set a budget or cut discretionary spending, for four years.
Are we supposed to offer you kid gloves handling because you are female or black? Please. Don’t insult this female.
These female Democrats, if they had a shred of honor, would not pull the race card or play gender politics in the wake of an epic screwup.
Obama and his administration made a serious mistake after engaging in a war that meant nothing to us on Main Street but a whole lot to corporations like BP. Remember the Left wailing about Bush 43 going into Iraq because of oil? Hello?
I am outraged by the continual pitting of American against American based on skin color. That is an insult to all Americans and that is an insult to the Republican Party I belong to.
Fact is, Obama, Susan Rice and current rehabilitated saint Hillary Clinton blew it and Americans died.
The honorable thing to do is to own up to your mistakes and see to it it doesn’t happen again.
Furthermore, Rice doesn’t deserve to be named Secretary of State. She hasn’t done a single thing to benefit our Republic and that isn’t likely to change anytime soon.
Rice, like this entire administration regardless of the politico’s color, creed or gender, is just another government official doing a lousy job in exchange for a fat paycheck and lifelong pension most politicos do not deserve. She did do a good job running interference for an administration eager to keep the lid on Benghazi ahead of a close election.
If Rice was a Republican, legacy media would be assailing her above the fold daily. So would the Democrats. That is indisputable.
You want to talk about gender bias? One word for you—Palin. Or alternatively, any conservative female.
If Rice can't hold her own as UN ambassador, how do you think she'll fare in the testosterone fueled world of global politics?
