Maybe if President Obama had not sent Susan Rice out with a script of lies; she would still be in line for Secretary of State.

Flawed actions, but we must never admit that for we have a perfect president who never makes mistakes.

It's always someone else's fault

She knew there would be questions that she could not answer under oath without implicating her lord and savior, so she stepped down.

•'Squirm' Signals Over Libya Report?
Rice withdrawal from secretary of state consideration and questions whether Hillary Clinton will testify as scheduled next week fuel speculation that a troubling report on Sept. 11 Benghazi attack is on its way……
Susan Rice Drops Out of Running for Secretary of State, Hillary continues to hide in plain sight.
State Department preparing for Libya bombshell? Look for Obama to jump on a plane and get out of dodge again. Run Forrest Run. Susan Rice's abrupt withdrawal from consideration for secretary of state, coupled with suggestions from the State Department that Secretary Hillary Clinton may not testify as scheduled next week, has stirred speculation that something big is brewing in the Libya terror attack investigation.

• Andrea Mitchell:'Woman of color' blocked from secretary of state bad for GOP. MSM hag plays race card and sexist card, but really only has a joker………..herself. Rice withdrew clown, she is a coward to face her lies to the American public.

Watch what happens next to her career. Some great very sweet job will come her way since Obama did not want this fight. He is hoping and calculating that the issue of Lybia will now fade into just a memory.

The entire Obama administration can be described with one descriptive word. INCOMPETENT ! Everything this guy does or attempts to do turns into a disaster. He is the ultimate talking, walking, empty suit without a clue as to the results of his administrations decisions.

Maybe, but it will be interesting as to the handpicked high or low profile person that will broach that subject. Doubt that Hillary will be that person.

Susan Rice would be taking Hilliary's job, were it not for the jealous, petulant, pompous pontificator, the mean loser, John McCain. He has never forgiven Obama for beating him, so with his '-itch',Lindsey Graham, and Loser Lieberman, behind him, he started a campaign to denigrate Susan Rice..disgusting.....her we need, the 3 amigos are 1/2 way in the trash bins...we have seen them, and we are nauseated by them. I suppose they sooo proud of themselves for attacking a woman..all 3 bullies..shame!

Obama has Rice's back alright. He stuck a knife right in it. Her career and legacy is toast. He's such a puss. He''ll do the same to Hillary after he's done hiding behind her skirt. He's a disgrace.

Obama should have stood up for her all the way.

Major disappointment.

Payback for Bolton.
