BSABSVR: Ambivalence: Any bets on who the next target for GOP outrage will be?

Holder.


For letting people have guns again, or for letting the bankers off the hook? That's a tough sell, because the GOP is frothy for both.

Marcus Aurelius: "While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first."

Is Obama the biggest troll in America, or what?

And don't forget what happened after the GOP torpedoed Elisabeth Warren for the Consumer Protection department. She ended up on the Senate banking committee. Something tells me the GOP didn't think their cunning plan all the way through.


So, she is going to go all Obi-Wan on the GOP? I can't wait!

The next liberal President Obama stands next to.

Or, for that matter, the next person whose conservative bona-fides are so much as *in question*.

GOP: Hey lets use this to attack Obama for the election!! This is all Obama's fault!!!

[election happens, GOP loses]

GOP: Ummm now it's all Rices (because getting upset at Obama doesn't do anything anymore) fault because she changed what the intelligence community told her what to say!!!

[investigation finds she reported exactly what the intelligence community told her to say]

GOP: Ummm not it's all rices fault because she did NOT change what the intelligence community told her to say!!!

Yes, who's at fault and why magically changes whenever it's no longer politically advantageous for the Republicans, just like normal.

I didn't even know the lady before a bunch of harpies started screaming about a press conference she gave that virtually no one saw, but she seems well qualified for a lot of positions. Like my dinner date, for example.

The GOP would love to see Scott Walker appointed to his senate seat should Kerry up and go.

Mass governor is a Dem. Like Propasaur said, he's likely to up and appoint himself.

MA law calls for a special election, not an appointment.

It's not a scandal subby. It's a national disgrace.
 
2012-12-13 05:28:19 PM
Susan Rice, the embattled U.S. ambassador to the U.N., withdrew her name on Thursday from consideration to be Secretary of State in the face of angry Republican criticisms.

"If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly-to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities," Rice wrote in a letter to President Barack Obama



This woman flushes more class down the toilet than every seated jackass with an (R) next to their name could ever fake having.

It is not a "claim" it is a fact.

I thought Mass. doesn't do appointments, just special elections, which is why Brown got in in the first place.

I'm not sure MA is ready for Brown. He still has looser stink all over him. Besides, I think Kerry really likes being Senior Senator from MA it's kind of the perfect job for him, and he could hold that seat till he dies if he wants. Also if the Rethugs are so hot for it why cater to them?


Don't think for a second that Kerry doesn't want the job. He knows his name is going around--he wouldn't let that continue at this point if he didn't want the job. He wants it for the same reason Clinton wanted it: it's a more powerful position. More distinguished, Glamorous, global travel, while acting as THE representative of the US. It's arguably the next best thing to being the actual president.

halfof33: Marcus Aurelius: believe you made that claim in the thread before this

So the mean old administration made a claim that you didn't actually witness on TV but which you were outraged about after seeing it on the news about them not revealing the true details of an investigation in progress of a terrorist attack where the perpetrators had not yet been identified nor apprehended, and you are outraged?

Does that about sum it up?

I LIKE this idea


Can I second this?
 
2012-12-13 05:35:10 PM
heh.....while I am pretty peeved that she had to withdraw, I am a bit relieved as it would have been one of those nasty confirmations that would have distracted congress for yet another month.

On the other hand, I am sure that Team Obama has a plan to grind the faces of the GOP into the pavement over this. TO generally does not leave much to chance. So in withdrawing, I am sure it is just a step in a plan that is already in place and has been for weeks.

This outta be good.

I'm not sure it particularly matters as to the reason. The base loathes him because they have told themselves for years that he's a militant black panther type. Hell, Susan Rice was/is Ambassador to the UN. She had nothing to do with Libya, or security forces in the middle east or how any intelligence on 9/11/12 was interpreted.

Her entire "crime" is reading statements that other people gave her.

THIS.

And Obama should take advice offered in earlier FARK threads: nominate a Republican for the position, one who would be replaced by a Democrat. Watch the Republicans tear apart one of their own in order to prevent the seat from falling into Democratic hands.

Perhaps Rice was offered up as a sacrificial lamb of sorts, seeing as to how the republicans would likely try to kill whatever nomination Obama would have offered up. Now the republicans have their scalp to wave around and Obama can select who he really wants.
