Obama is not about to put Susan Rice through a confirmation hearing where she will have to give testimony under oath. Because they both lied, and it is Obvious. He just threw that out there so that the GOP would attack her out of outrage.
Now he has two things going: The media is attacking with the race card, and law makers are wasting time arguing about something that was never going to happen in the first place. When they could be investigating Obama.
It is time for the conservative position to evolve on Susan Rice as Secretary Of State.
She would be wonderful.
