In a mind-blowing de facto admission of incompetence and serial dishonesty, president Barry attempted to defend another serial liar Susan Rice.
There has been much speculation this week about UN Ambassador Susan Rice replacing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton early next year. Republican Senators McCain and Graham have made it clear they aren’t interested in promoting her due to false statements she made in regards to a YouTube video being the cause of the 9/11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Obama offered a full defense of Rice, said she was sent on the Sunday shows on behalf of the White House to simply present intelligence that had been given to her and that she had “nothing to do with Benghazi.”
“I’m not going to comment on various nominations I’ll put forward to fill my cabinet,” Obama said. “Susan Rice, she has done exemplary work…she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence provided to her.”
He also drew a line in the sand.
“If Senator McCain and Senator Graham want to go after somebody, they should go after me,” he said. “But to go after the UN Ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi.”
…….a challenge quickly picked up by Sen. Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina Republican fired back: “Mr President, don’t think for one minute I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi. I think you failed as commander in chief before, during and after the attack.”
Okay Barry, explain why the White House sent an uninvolved party to explain about stuff she had no knowledge of.
If she didn’t have any direct knowledge, explain who fed her the lies she spewed.
You asked her to go! Why did you fill her full of lies. Lies that were obvious even then.
And, even if you did feed Rice full of lies, if she possessed any discernment at all, she would have easily seen the lies for what they were. We shouldn’t go after her because she was merely incompetent?
Don’t worry, Barry, you are on the list.
