Breaking: Susan Rice Withdraws Name – Won’t Seek Secretary of State Position

Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew her name today from a list of candidates for Secretary of State position.

This comes hours after New York Times’ Roger Cohen wrote that U.N. Amb. Susan Rice’s bid to become the next Secretary of State was “dead in the water.”
Looks like he was right.

Ambassador Rice made history by being the only one in America who believed the 9-11 Al-Qaeda attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not a terrorist attack.

    Wow, took her long enough. She knows what happened and so does Obama, just another cover.

  • CapitalG

    She must be a RACIST to be against her own nomination.

    OT but not so much:

    State Dept: Clinton may not testify on Benghazi next week

    Another Obama surrogate under the bus?

  • The Central Scrutinizer

    Don’t woory. I am sure they will find someone equally as incompetent and dishonest to fill the position.

    Rice’s open Senate questioning would have imploded the Obama Regime. Not gonna have that.

    That’s funny! But not quite true. Jay Carney didn’t believe it either.

  • Rachelle

    Obama will find another liar to take her place. The world holds this administration and this country in contempt.

    So now do we get John Kerry or Hanoi Jane?

    Susan Rice’s nomination was a slap in the face for hillary. It probably was humiliating that some unknown staffer nobody ever heard of before 2008 could follow in her shoes. She was regarded for years (by the media anyway) as having the presidency in the bag until obama cam along. Obama just let hillary know how unimportant she really is in his scheme of things.

    How’s “Secretary of State John Kerry” sound?

    Probably better than “Secretary of State Huma Abedin” right?

    What a mess.

    Wow. Obama threw a black woman overboard to cover up his “Stand Down” mistake.

    Obama is racist.

    I’m sure she had other “issues” that would be detrimental to zippy. Besides, the zipster can offer her other positions that don’t require Senate confirmation.

  • She can go run some dopey think tank

    “Ambassador Rice made history by being the only one in America who believed the 9-11 Al-Qaeda attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not a terrorist attack.”

    I kinda thought Obama took that position when he unambiguously supported her on that position – if you remember it was only a few days after he unambiguously asserted in a debate with Romney that it was terrorism.

    Um, she was a big part of Bill Clinton’s regime. October 14, 1997 to January 20, 2001.

    She was Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during President Bill Clinton’s second term. She has been around and question about her involved in security and embassy bombings in 1998 and the refusal to accept Osama bin Laden from the Sudanese.

    She has a big history.

  • cavt

    Too bad. Would have been fun to watch the confirmation hearings.

  • Bigkahuna

    I’m sure Barney frank is under consideration. After all the Muslims loves them some gay people. I’m guessing Obama has his finger up Barney’s but checking the temp on his nomination. Nothing says confidence in your foreign policy like a ft turd burglar with a lisp and a bloated ego who doesn’t pay his taxes either.

  • Thanks Bigkahuna best laugh i’ve had in along while…..

    I am sure 0bama’s idol Karl Marx will be nominated for the position soon…

    The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”

    Muslim Brotherhood ‘infiltrated’ U.S. gov’t

    [The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has
    successfully penetrated both political parties and the delicate areas
    of defense and national security.

    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, executive vice
    president of the Family Research Council, told WND’s Greg Corombos
    that people with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood are in vital
    positions within every significant area of the U.S. government. He
    specifically cited high security clearances for such people in the
    Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security.

    He said neither Republicans nor Democrats want to protest
    too loudly over concerns of being branded intolerant.]

    Egypt: Barack Obama the true leader of the Muslim Brotherhood

    [“People here are against the United States helping Ennahda,” a journalist told Totten. “All Americans who come here are against the Islamists, but the American government is supporting them. I wish we had a good, modern, respectful Islamic party. I’m a Muslim and I’m proud of it, but I’m not proud of this party.”

    The government is seen as far too cozy with radical Salafists, looking the other way as the radicals stake a claim to the new society. Ennahda members joined the Salafists in a recent rally calling for Sharia law in Tunisia.]

    [“I consider the Brotherhood to be a threat to Egypt,” said one of the eight, prize winning novelist Gamal el-Ghetani. “We are living a moment that may be similar to (Adolf) Hitler’s rise to power.”]

    [Reasoning with hindsight every move made by the U.S. in recent months is in this sense. And in hindsight even in other states “victims” of so-called “Arab spring” the situation is the same. In all cases Islamism Salafi has snatched the liberal revolution transforming it into an Islamic revolution very similar to that of Iran. Whether this is an actual plan “hatched” by Barack Obama has everything to prove, but if you look at the facts there is little to be happy.]

    [The Third Jihad exposes the war the media is not telling you about. It reveals the enemy our government is too afraid to name. One person who is not afraid to tell you the truth is Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim American and former physician to the US Congress. After the FBI releases a radical Islamist manifesto describing how to destroy America from within, Dr. Jasser decides to investigate. The Third Jihad is about what he discovered.]

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members
    of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy.]

    Hillary tied to new Muslim Brotherhood president

    [Saleha Mahmood Abedin, the mother of Hillary Clinton’s chief
    of staff, reportedly served in the women’s division of the Muslim
    Brotherhood alongside the wife of Egypt’s new president, the
    Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi.]

    November 16, 2012

    Rights activists say she’s been dancing
    with African dictators since the ’90s.

    [The long conflict in Congo has sometimes been called “Africa’s World
    War,” because it has led to a staggering 5.4 million deaths — far more
    than any war anywhere since World War II. Throughout it, Kagame has
    appeared to play a clever game of pretending to intervene to impose
    peace and deliver Western-friendly policies, while in fact carving out a
    sphere of influence by which he can control parts of Congo’s mineral
    wealth.]

    UN Amb Susan Rice Advised Former Pres Clinton to rebuff
    Sudan’s offer to Turn OBL Over To The US, is Anti-Israel,
    & Pro UN & Redistribution of US$! November 26, 2012 ..

    [“In 1996 Rice helped persuade President Clinton to rebuff Sudan’s offer to
    turn Osama bin Laden, who was then living there, over to U.S. authorities.
    Rice reasoned that because Sudan had a poor human-rights record, the U.S.
    should have no dealings with that nation’s government – not even to obtain
    custody of the al Qaeda leader or to receive intelligence information on
    terrorists from Sudanese authorities. Bin Laden subsequently moved his
    terrorist operations to Afghanistan, from where he would mastermind the
    9/11 attacks.”

    That includes Enbridge, which spilled more than a million gallons of toxic
    bitumen into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River in 2010 — the largest inland oil
    spill in U.S. history.”]

    DeMint: Obama will win tax fight

    A leading conservative who’s resigning from the Senate is predicting that President Barack Obama will win the battle over raising taxes.

    South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint calls it “a political trophy” within Obama’s grasp. Appearing Thursday on “CBS This Morning,” DeMint says, quote, “The president’s proposal is not a plan, it’s not a solution.”

    Asked why Obama and congressional Republicans can’t agree on a plan to avert a fiscal cliff in less than three weeks, DeMint says both political parties have “failed” the country.

    On Obama, the senator says, “He’s going to get his wish. I believe we’re going to be raising taxes and not just on the top earners.”

    DeMint is stepping down from the Senate to become president of The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank based in the nation’s capital.

    The Muslim Brotherhood, Not Morsi Is Calling The Shots In Egypt

    [“The Muslim Brotherhood feels that it has reached its goal of finally
    being able to implement the ideals of its founder, Hassan al-Banna.
    They’ve been preparing for this for 84 years,” says Cairo political
    scientist Siad Akl. “That’s why they won’t give up power that quickly.”

    For many Egyptians, the rioting of the last few weeks is proof that it isn’t
    the president but the Brotherhood that is pulling the strings — and that
    it has no scruples about pushing the country to the brink of civil war, if
    necessary.]

    and they have certainly been “more awake
    and aware” than we’ve been over here.. 🙁

    open, but alas & alack i digress..

    He’s damn right they’ve failed the country.

    For the Democrats, no amount of power or authority over the public is good enough for them. For the Republicans, not having the willingness and determination to be an actual and active opposition.
