SUSAN RICE AND THE INCOMPETENCE DEFENSE

President Obama dished out a lot of tough talk about Benghazi during his first press conference in eight months.  (I’m old enough to remember when the media would have disapproved of a President who so obviously hid from serious questions during his re-election campaign.)  Obama was particularly vigorous in his defense of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who was dispatched to the Sunday talk shows to spread the Administration’s false narrative of “spontaneous video protests” after the consulate attack.

Asked about Republican promises to oppose Rice if Obama nominates her to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, the President erupted:

Well first of all I’m not going to comment on various nominations that I’ll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. Those are things that are still being discussed. But let me say specifically about Susan Rice, she has done exemplary work. She has represented the United States and our interests in the United Nations with skill, and professionalism, and toughness, and grace. As I’ve said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her.

If Senator McCain and Senator Graham, and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi? And was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received? And to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. And, you know, we’re after an election now.

There are several things going on here.  First and foremost is the extension of Obama’s “War on Women” agitprop, which worked well enough to get him re-elected.  Critics who marvel at Obama’s portrayal of this powerful and accomplished woman as a helpless damsel in distress are missing the point of the War on Women, which is a relaunch of victim-based feminism, after its old leaders threw away their credibility to keep Bill Clinton in office.

    If you had a whopper of a lie you needed to air, would you tell the messenger it was a lie? Hell no you wouldn’t, you want the messenger to be sincere. No way in hell this woman was in on the ground floor, she repeated what she was lied to about.

    El Douche told the truth, don’t go after her, go after him. He said so in plain english, weren’t you listening?

    Won’t mean shit while we got dicks, pussies and assholes on the 24 hour news cycle (kudos to Team America for the stellar explanation).

    Might as well replace Bhoner with Honey Boo Boo. THAT just might help out the ratings at CSPAN. I don’t mean programming, I mean the ass in the chair holding the gavel.

    They both seem to posses the same amount of balls.

    Who could have predicted a metro sexual suit holding the purse strings of the most powerful nation on earth, and an ignorant redneck child could share the title of the most inconsequential twits that garner seemingly equal amounts of attention?

    This administration is a case study in the Peter Principle at work. They are all incompetent.

    “And, you know, we’re after an election now.”

    Ahhh the old “I won” line yet again.

    How about this line Obama…

    I pray for your grisly death soon, why not celebrate November 22 and take a nice slow walk near a book depository or maybe a grassy knoll?

    Take your pick: by hook or by crook — nothing more, nothing less. Why do we have criminals conducting the peoples’ business? Because we have an electorate who thinks Honey Boo Boo is art.

    By all means available, Go After Him! Looks like impeachment material to me, but then I’m just a simple citizen and “we the people” don’t really count anymore. Right Brad?

    Oh hell. I think a lot of us are old enough to remember when the populace would have disapproved of a President who has dodged any kind of reportage. Back when there were journalists as opposed to journ-o-listers.

    Talk is cheap – Obungle is hiding behind Rice’s skirt. Why would a President send out a UN ambassador to speak for him ?? She has nothing to do with incidents in Libya involving embassy security or intel.

    Anyway, what is Benghazi Rice? I’ve looked and looked for the recipe and just can’t find it.

    I am clueless so if anyone could give me a clue I’d be eternally grateful or until noon tomorrow, whichever comes first.

    Tough talk for a PANTYWAIST who loves to hide behind the Secret Service detail covering his mouth n azz……literally. Why won’t he come out in the open and face the people on his own, like a man? Why won’t he come to the red states? We all know the answer…COWARDLY BIGMOUF PUSSYGALORE.
