Krauthammer: Obama’s Indignant Defense of Susan Rice Made ‘Romney and the Binders With Women Look Positively Feminist’

During today’s news conference, President Obama passionately defended U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice against criticism from some GOP lawmakers. On tonight’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer reflected on what he called the president’s “indignant” remarks.

Krauthammer said, “He gives the strangest defense by saying she didn’t have anything to do with Benghazi. Okay, then why the hell are you sending her out there? Why didn’t you send out the Secretary of State or the CIA Director or Panetta or somebody who did know?”

KRAUTHAMMER: AYou called at it a show of passion, I would say it was his usual show of indignation, which is his default response whenever he feels defensive or backed into a corner. ‘How dare you attack my U.N. ambassador?’ And then he gives the strangest defense by saying she didn’t have anything to do with the Benghazi [attack]. Then why the hell are you sending her out there? Why didn’t you send out the Secretary of State, or the CIA Director, or [Secretary of Defense] Panetta or somebody, who did know?

And then he does play the sort of Lancelot defending the mistress in distress? It made Mitt Romney and the binders with women look positively feminist in comparison, this kind of patronizing attack on the two male Senators who would dare attack the girl, which what was intended in his tone. This is all the usual — you know, if you attack the pride, he’ll strike you on that. It was clearly defensive, and it was also a stonewall. I mean, after all, what she said was absolutely and completely misleading. Either inadvertently, in which case it’s complete incompetence or on purpose, in which case it’s deception. Then he basically, he took the bait on that and said, ‘Look, that wasn’t her speaking, that was me speaking. If you want to pick on somebody, pick on me.’

    Better yet, pull the thread that starts with the question “Who briefed Rice before her Sunday Talk Show appearences?” Follow that up with “Who briefed that person or gave that person intel to pass on to Rice and so forth?” and so on until we get to the ugly truth about the four dead in Benghazi.

    Then watch how fast Teh Bum tosses Rice under the bus.

    But the burning questions remain “Who set the policy in place that left the Lybian Station woefully under secured. Who decided not to defend the consulate?” “What did the President know and what decisions did he make before, during and after Benghazi?” “What is the Administration doing now to get the perps?”

    That’s all I want to know.

    Obama knows that McCain will never question the one woman who did know exactly what was going on in Benghazi: Human Abedin

    I wonder if Huma is hiding out with Hillary in Australia.

    Krauthhammer is one of those rare conservative gems who is wise enough to get to the heart of a situation quickly and articulate it clearly.

    He is not easily distracted but sees the distractions of others and when he points them out, they is so obvious we don’t know why we didn’t see it.

    Yes, this is sort of a crush comment about Charles.

    Either she knew what she was saying was not true and in the service of her lying superiors, or she did not know she was being played by her lying superiors. Either way she is unfit for high office. For the smartest guy in the room Obama sure is stupid.

    “If you want to pick on somebody, pick on me.’”

    Gladly!!! You traitor in chief. I would love to have you subpoena’d for treason, consistant lying, bringing communism to the great U.S…… YOU SIR, are NOT a KING. WE THE PEOPLE….. I would love to pick on you.

    Dear God, I still can’t believe that he was re-elected.

    The Obama administration believes these three truths to be self evident:

    WAR IS PEACE
    FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
    IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

    Rice being the most ignorant of the sordid truth about the Benghazi murders, was deemed to be the strongest representative of the administration.

    I gotta share the parts of a conversation I had with a libtard friend yesterday, a woman whom I think represents the majority of people who voted for obama (again!) because they “don’t have the time to keep up with everything (about the country).” In fact, before she launched into her high-minded opinion she said to me, “I don’t know very much about what has been happening, but….”

    She didn’t know the names of anyone involved in the recent Patraeus scandals except “That Kelly woman” but she was outraged that the gov’t had the audacity to infringe on everyone’s “rights to privacy” by “going through everyone’s emails.”

    She didn’t know that any of this figures into the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi but “It certainly makes the military look bad. You know the military gets away with all kinds of ‘stuff’”.

    She didn’t know who Susan Rice is and didn’t know that Susan Rice went on 5 Sunday morning news shows to blame the Benghazi killings on a video. This is the one thing she admitted not knowing that really surprised me. I thought everyone knew that it was because of an Islamaphobic video.

    I can’t wait to hear about what else she couldn’t take the time to understand as obama’s second term unwinds.

    Oh, forgot to add that when I apprised her of the facts all I got in return was a pregnant pause and then her defensive statement, “Well, I haven’t kept up with ….” Then a change of subject. I hate it when libtards bring up a subject about the government, foreign affairs, etc., try to talk as if they actually know something and are trying to vilify someone for their pet cause, turn out to be dead wrong and then act as though you’re the one who brought it up in the first place.

    She must know by now she can never bring her half-witted political gossip to me, but I just know she must be spouting this crap to others of her kind.

    @jus askin yo — I know, right? Hey, I live in Libtard Central, Seattle. We’ve jettisoned nearly everyone we’ve ever known (and that’s saying a lot). If we get rid of everyone of our Libtardia “friends”, we’ll be talking to about 3 people, tops.

    Admonished people for wanting to flee their states in the wake of obama, but we’re seriously mapping a plan to get the heck out of here. As CA continues to shed their makers and give more to their takers, I know there will be a lot of RINOs moving to WA, so we’re bugging out as soon as dependents leave HS, about a year away. Want to stay on a hydroelectric energy grid, so probably somewhere in N. ID or W. Montana, depending on what happens in 2014 and the congress. Seattle and WA are lost to the Gimme People.

    on a very deeply sincere note, as i questioned expressed to Hannah, when she told us that she and her fiance had already decided not to have children…
    who (and where) are the ones to make the sacrifice to build the equivalent of 80K airplanes during that 12 month period of WWII…
    again, to paraphrase Schwartzkopf, the time to leave is not when everything’s all messed up, ya can’t leave until everything’s fixed…

    y’all got my great sympathies, having been born and raised in flyover, can’t say i know much else – i think we’re a few months (okay, years) away from being taken over by the libtards, but we already give up too much to the illegals and the nonassimilatin’ moosturds – been doing the one man song and dance for nobody in particular going on two years – so i just kinda get lippy on here
