Today's press conference today, was a gigantic display of posturing by the President regarding Susan Rice.
===
Benghazi showdown: President Obama said that he thinks it’s “outrageous” that Republicans like John McCain and Lindsey Graham have said they’d block the nomination of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to be secretary of state because of her handling of Benghazi.
Obama said he wouldn’t comment on his planned nominations, but remarks like those “besmirch” Rice’s reputation.
“If Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me,” Obama said, adding:“If they go after the U.N. ambassador because apparently they think she’s an easy target, then they’ve got a problem with me.”
Snort- Someone needs to tell this guy that he's not a dictator and he's not Whitey Bolger. The senators have every right to raise an eyebrow and attempt to block Rice after her Sunday morning 5 show, "it was a youtube video" tour. Someone might also want to tell him the Susan Rice is not the UN ambassador. She's the US ambassador to the UN.
"You wanna piece of me?"
What a doofus.
The doofuses would be the Congressmen going after Rice instead of going after the truth. After Powell was fed misinformation to sell to the UN for reasons to go to war in Iraq, the President is right in saying that they should come after him if they have a bone to chew.

I would like to know if Rice was misled concerning the events in Benghazi or why she remained so misinformed at that late date. If she was misled, why and by whom?

BTW: If the Congressmen had done their job when Powell was misled, this probably would never have happened.

Oh! So the fact that Barney Frank said our financial institutions were "doin' OK" right b4 they collapsed, the fact that starting with Bush Jr., and continuing with Obama, Congressional spending vaulted outta control, the fact that ENTITLEMENT spending is crippling the US, and the fact that our government has NO problem not only wasting taxpayer funds, but finding NEW ways to waste our money, doesn't have much to do with the $16T debt?
Many folks don't mind paying their taxes. It's when they see WHAT their taxes are going to fund that becomes the problem.
How about the fact that in 2003 "Pay-Go" lapsed and the Republican Congress sped up all the bush tax cuts. Coincidently, we began running deficits again that year. Keep in mind we did not run a deficit in 2001 or 2002 despite the recession, 9-11 and the invasion of Afghanistan.

And you are right about entitlement spending, but you don't hear the elderly talk about cutting their slice of it. Heck, even people in here don't want to cut SS and Medicare.

And like I just said, CA is doing SO well under Dem control isn't it?
Califonia has the 8th largest economy in the world. Texas has the 15th. Texas also has a larger percentage of its citizens on government assistance.

Not saying California does not have problems, but they aren't doing that bad either.

However it seems the struggling American, the Americans you care so much about are leaving California by the thousands due to lack of opportunity and an unattainable cost of living problem. The "less desireables" in other words, aren't exactly a snug fit in your utopia.

And unless you view showing lower income families the exit door, it seems to be a direct contradiction to your philosophy of: ""The measure of a society is the dignity with which it treats its weakest members"

Awww, wassamatter? Don't like the hard questions posed to your hero? Don't like opposition? Selective vision and hearing, okb?

In case you haven't noticed, the President has been playing "let's grease the watermelon and throw it in the pool" regarding Benghazi, since day one. The truth has been twisted, concealed, altered, disguised and diluted.

And I beg your pardon but do you remember when GWB came out with a pledge to get bin Laden "dead or alive?" It was an unfortunate John Wayne moment and one where he took alot of mocking from the left.
Well excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me for laughing at His Holiness when he pulls the mob boss routine and tries unsuccessfully to initiate the tough guy image. If Clint Eastwood was listening, it amuses me to think what may have crossed his mind:
"Go ahead, Barry. Make my day."

It's ranked 50th in Best - Worst states for business in 2011 and thus far in 2012.
http://chiefexecutive.net/best-worst-states-f...

"California, once a business friendly state, continues to conduct a war on its own economy. According to the Pacific Research Institute, it has the fourthlargest government of all U.S. states, with spending equal to 18.3 percent of GDP. The comparable figure for Texas is 12.1 percent. Survey respondents uniformly say the state’s regulators are hostile.“No one in his right mind would start a new manufacturing concern here,” said one California CEO."

Although California is not unique in pursuing policies that prompt wealth and job creators to expand elsewhere,(New York being a good example), the Golden State seems uniquely oblivious to the effect its labor and other regulations are having on its innovative and growth-oriented Silicon Valley. Job growth in the Valley has flatlined. Firms keep their HQs there, but pursue growth in friendlier states. Google, Intel, Cisco and other companies locate new plants in states such as Arizona, Utah, Texas, Virginia or North Dakota."

AAAwwwww, what's the matter, problems with English?

I stated specifically that instead of going after Rice they should go after the truth. Was she misinformed and why. That would include the President wanting her to be misinformed for whatever reason.

They should have been concerned about that when Powell was misinformed when he testified in front of the UN about the intel justifying going to war in Iraq.

If you remember, I also support investigations into Benghazi.

You must be awful bored to scraping this low to try to say something.

Do you know what transference is?
Copycat avoidance?

It's just an observation okb but I can't help notice when someone says something unpleasing toward you or something you've said, you repeatedly throw IT or some variant of IT, right back at them.

Ex:
"You're a ninny."
"Yeah well, you're a bigger ninny. So there!"

You're an curious little fellow.

Had you brought it back as if you agreed with what I had stated instead of misunderstanding it, I might not be as curious.

The najority of Americans do in fact favor "restricting" abortion; particularly, late term abortion. Most people are not in favor of LTA unless the mother's life is at risk or the fetus has irreversible severe health issues and/or deformitites.
One of the questions posed in the link was:
"Do you think abortion should be legal under any circumstances, legal only under certain circumstances, or illegal in all circumstances?"

Fabulous. The 'never-never-never' crowd gets smaller by the day. Now if the GOP could just dump this toxic issue, and do the 'moving on' bit, we might actually get somewhere in 2016.

The truth is that no Republican could win the White House in 2012 running on the failed tax cuts and disastrous war-first foreign policy. Nor can any Republican opposing comprehensive immigration reform win a future presidential race. Mitt TWIT Romney failed miserably, but voters primarily rejected the Republican national agenda.
Every exit poll concluded the republican FAILURE was because of policy first then the messenger Willard TWIT Romney second...But they still in their tea Ooops I mean pea brains think their antiquated policies are sound.....They will lose many elections to come until they come to grips with REALITY, THEY and THEIR policies SUCK.....

And he deflected Fox News' Ed Henry's question about Benghazi with the same "it's still under investigation" dodge. It's no wonder Obama has NOT been holding many press conferences.
Yep. No Press conf since March and the so called reporters are too busy with worship of their god to bother to report these days.
