In the Susan Rice debacle, let’s lay the blame squarely at the feet of the little men who did the deed…not at the feet of President Obama, or Hillary Clinton or Susan Rice. This was clearly the work of John McCain who although once was a hero (although a senile hero that needs to be in retirement) in my eyes has now become a little, little man and his little homophobic sidekick (can’t wait to see the skeletons in that closet) Lindsey Graham who really, really should secede from the union.
Susan Rice, a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Rhodes Scholar, went on a Sunday Morning talk show to speak about the Benghazi situation and stuck to the talking points—a practice John McCain would know nothing about . This lady’s record is impeccable and the man who tried to give us Sara Palin as Vice-President had the audacity to not only oppose Rice’s nomination but to take it to a personal level calling her “not very bright.” For weeks McCain and Graham have been bashing Susan Rice rather than trying to get to the bottom of what actually happened in Benghazi and the business of the economy.
President Obama has said from day one that he had not made the decision on who would replace Hillary Clinton. And as far as Clinton dodging a bullet with the Sunday morning show if my memory serves me right , Clinton clearly stated she was responsible for the protection of U.S. diplomats. How is that dodging the bullet? And then, Clinton statement was followed by President Obama saying he was ultimately responsible. But still, McCain and Graham hammered Rice until she decided to shut them up so the White House did not have to deal with their distraction…a waste because they simply will move on to some other distraction from the more critical issues and if Rice was to be the President’s choice her record in its entirety says she would have done the job well.
Anyway, these two culprits are still U.S. Senators and I expect them to continue to play these kinds of little games hurt good people, but I certainly don’t want anyone to be confused about where to lay the blame.
