97 Republicans Urge Obama Not to Appoint Susan Rice to State Department

It's been over two months and the slimy details about what happened on September 11 in Benghazi are just now starting to be revealed.  Two things happened: United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice willfully lied to the American people per direction from the White House or she's incompetent.  Actually, we believe this moron is both, but that's not stopping how the elite media portrays her or how President Barack Hussein Obama gushes over her every move.

While the investigations are underway, most of the details have been kept off limits to the public.  Part of this is because the Benghazi situation deals with national security and shows Obama in a negative light.  However, national security hasn't stopped the White House in the past from leaking top secret information that may help them politically.  Remember the Osama bin Laden raid?  More details were "leaked" about that than Kim Kardashian's sex tape.  It was a disgrace and showed just how far the White House will go to push their propaganda.

A reason this situation has escalated is because Susan Rice is rumored to be nominated as Secretary of State to replace Hillary Clinton.  This is a serious problem because the woman is incompetent and is in her position solely because of her race and gender.  Offended?  Good.  It's the truth.  In anticipation, nearly 100 House Republicans wrote a letter to the empty suit Obama, calling on him not to nominate the incompetent Rice.  And by the way Obama has defended her, he knows she's a fellow hack, which is why they're sticking together.

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 Sept. 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 [Christopher] 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 spearheaded by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) and sent to Obama on Monday.

Stevens and the three others were killed in the attack on the Benghazi consulate.

The letter says Rice “propagated a falsehood” that the attacks were a spontaneous response to a video that depicted the Prophet Muhammad. The administration then said, more than a week later, that terrorism might have played a role.

“Ambassador Rice is widely viewed as having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi matter,” the letter says. “Her actions plausibly give U.S. allies (and rivals) abroad reason to question U.S. commitment and credibility when needed.

“Thus, we believe that making her the face of U.S. foreign policy in your second term would greatly undermine your desire to improve U.S. relations with the world and continue to build trust with the American people.”

If Obama were to nominate Rice, it would be up to the Senate to confirm her, not the House. But the House Republican letter mirrors some of the Senate Republican criticism of Rice that has emerged.

We cannot stress enough how much Susan Rice's race plays into her having a position in the Obama administration.  It's pathetic, but race is a core competency of liberalism; it's how they keep so many people suppressed.  We fully expect Obama to nominate Rice because he doesn't give a damn what his opponents think, which, frankly, is a good reminder to the pathetic old guard Republicans that think he's a good guy and should be given a second chance.  

Obama will do whatever he wants, especially when it's in spite of his opponents.
