Kirsten Powers on Obama: Nominating Susan Rice as Secretary of State Would Be His Undoing (Video)

Kirsten Powers was asked on FOX News Sunday if Barack Obama will nominate scandal-plagued UN Ambassador Susan Rice as Secretary of State:

“I don’t know. I think if he does though it could be, that kind of arrogance, which I think it would be, would be his undoing. Because if she is put under oath and is forced to go through and answer all of these questions about Benghazi, it’s going to put the administration into a really bad position. And I don’t think she was the frontrunner. I don’t understand where this came out of… It’s now become almost a sense of pride… His defense of her was fine but then it kind of went into an area that didn’t make sense.”

    Obama’s undoing…?
    What is she talking about?
    Obama and his whole administration spit in the face of the GOP congress and laugh in the face of the GOP senate.
    I have yet to see one example of the Republicans holding Obama’s feet to the fire on anything that eventually doesn’t just go away.
    If he nominates Rice I bet there will be at least twenty GOP senators who will vote for her just like they did with his ridiculous SCOTUS appointments.

    Kirsten Powers has much more faith in the GOP than I do.

    The flaw in Powers’ reasoning is that she assumes “under oath” means something to these slobs.

    How many of these Obama’s Waterloos have we predicted?

  • mountainwilliam

    I agree whole heartedly with NeoKong. There is absolutely nothing he can do that would change his sheeples minds. There is simply no way to get across to them. They would follow him into the gas chamber while singing his praises.

  • Alana

    Nothing will ever be obamas undoing. No matter what he does.

  • saveus

    she is clueless
    the media senate will give obama and rice a pass
    business as ususal
    stonewall w/o any consequences
    besides anyone who challenges either one will be destroyed as a racist

    they have it set up so they never lose no matter what they do or what the facts are

  • Indiana

    Obama has been “undone” his entire life….and has never sufered any consequences for it. Wake up and smell the coffee….the United States is now under dictatoral rule. It’s hard to comprehend, but that’s the facts folks! We have our own Morsi camped out in the White House, even the Greatest Nation on Earth is under Islamic rule.

  • Owen

    Bitch McConnell won’t fight her nomination.
    Neither will rino’s like Chambliss and Isakson.

  • FurryGuy

    Ms. Powers, you are NOT thinking when you spout such idiocy. Barry has done so much already that under normal circumstances he never would have been elected as a US Senator, let alone reelected as POTUS.

    Kirsten Powers, another Beltway/media pundit butt sniffer who believes she’s enjoying the scent of the finest French perfume.

    Soothing Egos? His and Rice? or more then this.

    Obama turned the Benghazi tragedy into another War of Women, IMO.

    “His defense of her was fine but then it kind of went into an area that didn’t make sense.”

    If Obama has to defend someone’s actions and on something so serious has a Terror Act on our land killing 4 Americans on 911, then this person shouldn’t be Secretary of State or in any important position like this.

    Furthermore, Clinton should have been the one to speak on the networks instead of Rice. And truthfully, it should have been done when all facts and investigations were over.

    Nothing makes sense in Obama’s administration but one thing they have done very well is cover up, lie and deny.

    Obama acted stupidly because he defended a woman and he just doesn’t have enough defense for himself, let alone Rice or anyone else for that matter.

    Kirsten Powers calls Obama’s defense of Susan Rice ‘silly, sexist’ and ‘paternalistic’ [VIDEO]

    BUT HERE ON THIS THREAD KIRSTEN SAYS THIS: His defense of her was fine but then it kind of went into an area that didn’t make sense.”

    fickle, shame on kirsten and other women, they really need to start fighting their own battles if the want to compete with men. obama is fighting a war for a woman.

    defenseless woman is now going to be up for nomination? WOW, seems they should be looking at LIZ CHENEY. She doesn’t seem to need any man or woman defending her.

  • Trevor (@TJexcite)

    Sure if he nominates her that will be a nasty fight but, he will recces appointment to avoid the nasty racist fight and the country needs a Secretary of state. The talking points to say how great this is are already in the draft folder. They will say there is no one better qualified, even the current deputy is not able to take the lead.

    It will cause the down fall and the media will have to work triple time to not have them lose the senate in 2014.

  • Robert

    There will be no undoing. The media will see to that.

    And because of that, opposition will be ineffective.

    The liberal totalitarian biased mainstream media is the enemy of America.

    Isn’t the reality pretty obvious, though? To cover his own butt, President Obama hid behind Susan Rice’s skirt and sent her onto national television to spread false information. It was the president who put her career on the line in doing so. Yet McCain and Graham are supposed to be villains for holding her accountable? There’s your protector of women, folks!

    Equally nauseating has been the media’s glowing reaction to Obama’s so-called gallant defense of Rice.

    On ABC’s Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos hailed the president for being “very forceful in defending Ambassador Rice.” His colleague, Martha Raddatz, deemed it a “very strong defense.”

    ABC News’ Diane Sawyer described the president as coming out swinging, in defense of Rice.

    Most all of the mainstream media has found a way to admire the president’s response, but the most embarrassing fawning came from NBC News…

    Brian Williams said, “The president today, almost conjuring the wording of Aaron Sorkin from the movie American President, as will be pointed out all day, really deciding to throw down.”

    Andrea Mitchell concurred with Williams, saying, “This was President Andrew Shepherd really coming through in the East Room of the White House. Because this was President Obama saying, ‘If you want to pick a fight with my U.N. ambassador, and blame her for something that was not her responsibility on Benghazi, then you come after me’….It was dramatic. He is angry.”


    If only the national media could get as emotionally invested in the cover-up of the deaths of four American patriots, as they do over the president’s phony, Hollywood chivalry, the public and the families of the victims might actually get some answers.

  • Patty

    Diane and Andrea, women who just don’t care about what Obama is doing for the Women in America.

    He of all people looks pathetic and hasn’t a backbone to come out explain to the America people what happen in Benghazi. Now, his skirt can’t be big enough.

    Weak defending the weak

  • aprilnovember811

    Nah, nothings his undoing. He can steal, kill, anything. They just look the other way. If he slaughtered people in the street, they’d just say, he’s just soooo incompetent, isn’t he? Poor dear.

  • aprilnovember811

    I hope the media falls victim to a terror attack.

  • gracepmc

    I saw this. Kirsten Powers criticized Obama’s effort to nominate Rice a lot more than Bill Kristol did. For a liberal,depending on the issue, Powers sometimes leans if not to the right then at least to the middle. And she is far more reasoned than Juan Williams on any given topic.

  • Michele

    I agree totally with all the comments that have said there will be no “undoing” of Obama. As for “the people”, I’m afraid I have a different image of what constitutes “the people” since the election results came out. “The people” are the ones who want freebies without doing anything for it, and want other people to work hard so they can have them. In my opinion,
    “the people” will be perfectly OK with Obama nominating Susan Rice, since most will have no idea of who she is, and probably think Benghazi is a new video game. (Do you really think “the people” watch the Sunday morning news shows?)
