Maddow's Bizarre Defense of Susan Rice: McCain, Not Rice, Offers 'Made-Up' Charges

Nov 17, 2012 Full story: Yes, But, However 19

As she moved into an interview with former Obama spokesman Bill Burton on Wednesday night, Rachel Maddow claimed it was somehow insane to resist the idea of Susan Rice being the next Secretary of State after Rice lied on five Sunday shows about Benghazi.

Tim Graham, the author of this article does not come across as non partisan.
I mean, that's ok, as long as we remember that his piece (like Maddow's) is an op ed, not 'just the facts' journalism.

Gotta say, and this applies to both sides of the aisle, that expecting the unvarnished truth about a democrat, from a republican (and vice versa), is unlikely 24/7.

You make a good point, but have you ever seen or listened to Maddow? She is not exactly a good example of bipartisanship herself.

I not only Had a great respect for
McCain but I liked him as well.

Until I saw one of his speeches last
week....he was literally screaming that
he wanted ,but couldn't get, any answers
about Benghazi.

All the while missing a hearing about
what happened in Benghazi so he could
yell about not being able to get these
answers.....

I sense a pattern with him...

He's showboating for Fox is all. Either that or he's senile, thinks Susan Rice is Palin and he's still pissed about getting stuck with her!

I lost respect for McCain when he attempted to pass that back-door amnesty bill several years ago.

Good morning arctic :)

Great so far. Number 1 AND number 2 lost yesterday. LSU won (did you see Les Miles meltdown on the post game interview - classic). Now just hoping that the Aints can win and get back to .500.

McCain's right, Rice was only doing her job. She said exactly what the President wanted her to say.

Who came up with the 'spontaneous riots over an anti-Muslim video?' story first?

Independent news means diddly to you, doesn't it?

1. Rice's information was vetted by the CIA; much like vetted info about WMD with CIA Director Tennant's persuasion was given to Colin Powell for presentation to the U.N. and media.

2. On-the-ground reporting with eye-witnesses about a short-lived and meager demonstration seemingly like the Cairo Egypt demonstration except the Benghazi one was a set-up for the attack.

McCain's foresight on this issue (G.W. Bush had SOME foresight on this too) has been borne out by election 2012. There are statements on Sunday talk shows TODAY BY Republicans that Republicans must agree and work to a path to citizenship to be responsive to Latinos/Latinas.

Hey!

Ken Burns' "The Dust Bowl" starts tonight concluding Monday night; hopefully repeated at least once during the week.

With Sunday Football Night in American -- time for DVR use.

My admiration for McCain came from his
refusal to participate in the ugly rhetoric
when he was running for president.

Now I'm not sure what to think of him.
He seemed to be quite senile when he was claiming
he couldn't get answers and meanwhile answers
were being given....he just didn't bother to
go and hear them.

... my disdain for McCain began in 1973 when he was released from being a POW ... after coming home and finding his wife Carol who was a tall model had a horrible car crash that left her disabled and disfigured he started his playboy ways and divorced Carol to marry Cindy the heir to the Heinz food company ... Ross Perot paid her medical bills and when McCain came home he bought a small home for her in Florida ... the rest is history ...

Heinz is John Kerry's wife. Cindy McCain's daddy had a Budweiser distributorship.
