Here is just more proof that Obama is not smarter than conservatives, he is just smarter than the GOP, Fox News and a whole host of RINO GOP blogs – not this one. We saw it coming all along.
LA Slimes – WASHINGTON – Susan Rice, who came under heavy criticism for her defense of the Obama administration after armed militants killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, withdrew her name from consideration for secretary of State on Thursday as the president began to narrow his choices for key Cabinet positions.
“If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly – to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities,” Rice wrote in a one-page letter to President Obama. “That tradeoff is simply not worth it to our country.”
In a statement, Obama praised Rice, who is the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, as a key member of his Cabinet and “an advisor and friend.”
See I told you so:
Wake Up GOP: It Is An Obama Con – Rice Was Never Going To Be Secretary Of State – Posted on November 28, 2012 by BC
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.
Susan Rice was never and is never going to be Secretary Of State. They are not about to put her under oath in a conformation hearing.
It was only brought up that she was under consideration to distract from the fact that Obama and Hillary both were blaming the Youtube long after they knew it was the work of terrorists.
And it looks like it worked.
