I cannot tell a lie!

UN Ambassador Susan Rice, who came under fire over her role following the Benghazi terror attack, will replace Tom Donilon, pictured left, who is resigning as Obama's national security adviser, a White House official tells Fox News.

I'm not a crook! However, I do enjoy having good liars in my top posts. Misinformation and propaganda is critical to the fascist socialist Democrat Party.

Susan Rice to be appointed national security adviser
By Chuck Todd, Chief White House Correspondent, NBC News 6/5/2013

Susan Rice will replace Tom Donilon as national security adviser, the White House is expected to announce Wednesday.

Rice, currently the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, will be formally introduced in her new role by President Barack Obama at 2 p.m. ET. A White House official says Samantha Power, a former special assistant to the president on the National Security Council, will be nominated to replace Susan Rice as the U.N. ambassador.

Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United States, will be nominated to become the new national security adviser.

The changes are a significant reshuffle of the White House foreign policy team.

Rice has been at the center of a storm over the early accounts of the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which later proved to be incorrect.

Under Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago's violent murder rate has dropped 38% in just one year."CHICAGO (AP)— Almost exactly a year after Chicago's surging homicide rate caught the nation's attention, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy rolled out statistics Monday that showed a dramatic drop in the number of killings. At the same time, they tried to allay safety concerns in the wake of a weekend fight involving more than a dozen young people on the Magnificent Mile.

Emanuel and McCarthy — appearing together at a news conference and then in separate interviews with The Associated Press — suggested that an array of police initiatives have helped reduce the number of homicides from 120 for the first three months of 2012 to 70 for the first three months of this year."

The fact is there are several of us that blamed Bush for the disasters of his two terms as president. The difference in us and liberals like you is that we also realize that just because Bush may have crashed the bus, Obama didn't help with the fact that he had no experience driving one at all! Bush is to blame for his administration and what happened on his watch to our country and to our economy. But now it is and for the last going on five years now has been Obama. Obama does not get excused for everything just because of what the last guy did. At some point, and one would think at least by the end of his first term, Obama becomes responsible and has to realize he is in the position of driving the bus now and will be held accountable for how he does.
Liberals seems to think Obama gets some kind of pass on everything because Bush screwed up on his watch. Well how do you explain Obama continuing on some of the exact same paths? Does he not become the one to blame at that point?
The main question I have for liberals is...."at what point are you going to hold the president responsible for anything?"

While some national Republicans are annoyed with Mr. Christie’s decision, they may not be privy to all the information he had about which Republican candidates might have been interested in Mr. Lautenberg’s seat. It’s plausible that Mr. Christie could have helped a reasonably good G.O.P. nominee to a narrow victory. But if none were interested in the race, it may have been a lost cause.
It may be reasonable to infer, then, that Mr. Christie evaluated the Republican field and did not like what he saw — and that Mr. Booker is poised to win the Senate seat with relative ease.

Then just have Obama answer the question about where he was that night. That's all. Just answer the question. If he would be able to provide some evidence as to his where abouts perhaps it would rid not only Republican's but Independent's and even some Democrats, of the question of how high up this goes. Show what the president was doing to handle the biggest crisis at the time. We had a message of attack on the embassy happening, they got notice of the ambassador missing, they got notice of the ambassador dead, and all the while Obama spoke with the Sec. of State ONE time. That's it???? WTH????? We hadn't had a ambassador for the US be killed since 1979 and so naturally there might be some questions as to why and how. Especially when there were warnings that the Ambassador was VERY concerned about an attack happening. Especially when there had not been increased security for the FIRST time on 9/11 since the attack on the US in 2001. Especially when during the time of the Bin Laden killing we have pics of the president in the Situation Room and yet when there were drones picking up the attack in real time we have not only NO pics of the president in the Situation Room but we have NO answers as to where the president even was.

Hey pal, you're the one that's dazed and confused. Whatever reason your scatterbrain settles on is really of no consequence, Obama is undoing all the good work Bush accomplished. He methodically sours relationships with our allies and arms our enemies. It's his way of 'leveling' the playing field, of whittling our "arrogance" down to size. When he said he would share the wealth, no one thought he meant share it with our enemies, but that's exactly what he's doing. Of course, it could just be a rogue agent in the State Dept.

When President Obama hosted his annual Iftar dinner in August 2010 to commemorate the Muslim celebration of Ramadan, the list of invitees published by the White House was curiously missing the names of several attendees–all of whom were top leaders of organizations known to be purveyors of jihadi ideology and implicated by federal prosecutors in financing terrorism.
Yet it was not like they had crashed the party. In fact, one of the individuals missing on the official White House list, Mohamed Majid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), was pictured in a news service photograph sitting at the front table just a few feet from the president as he spoke. When Majid was hailed by Time Magazine in November 2005 as a “moderate Muslim cleric” who was helping the FBI fight terrorists, he quickly published an open letter to his congregation on the mosque’s website assuring his congregants that he was doing no such thing, stating that his relationship with the FBI was a one-way street only to communicate Muslim community concerns–not to report on individuals suspected of terrorist activity.
It was just a few years ago the attorney general of the United States was canceling Muslim outreach events for the sole reason that Majid would be present at the meeting, because the Department of Justice had just named the ISNA as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.

I give O'bama credit for his outreach to terrorism- are you satisfied? I also giving him credit for helping moslems around the world in their quest for jihad. Satisfied yet?

The main question I have for liberals is...."at what point are you going to hold the president responsible for anything?"
The starting point for Obama is as follows:

1) losing 750,000 jobs a month & growing trend
2) An economy Shrinking at over 6%
3) Two quagmire wars
4) A housing collapse
5) A near financial meltdown.

These things created
1) fast rising unemployment
2) More people on Food Stamps
3) Fewer people paying federal income taxes
4) Lower average incomes
5) Trillion dollar deficits

Employment/incomes are lagging indicators & take longer to recover. Average incomes have improved since they bottomed out. Unemployment rate is has improved since Obama stopped the job losses & it peaked. Deficits have been shrinking since they peaked in 2009,2010.

After the original stimulus dwindled down, we needed more action as many economists agree. Several of Obama's stimulus actions since Jan of 2011 have been stymied by Republicans in the House & Senate.

Yes, we agree. Obama is undoing Bush's recession, housing collapse, quagmire wars & near financial meltdown.
