    Obama defends Rice in face of GOP opposition | US National Headlines | Comcast

    President Barack Obama lashed out at senior Republican senators Wednesday over their criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in the aftermath of the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Libya, saying they should "go after me" and not her.

    Within minutes, Graham's response made clear he wouldn't back down from challenging Rice's nomination.

    "Mr. President, don't think for one minute I don't hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi," the South Carolina Republican said in a statement. "I think you failed as commander in chief before, during and after the attack."Given what I know now, I have no intention of promoting anyone who is up to their eyeballs in the Benghazi debacle," he said.

    And very well I hope they do go after you Mr. Obama, it is called Impeaching your ass....:clap2:

    The Republicans continue to work from the same playbook that guaranteed their asskicking in the election.

    Good.

    We've got fiscal problems and they're worried about this? Just like in the late '90s when we had problems with bin Laden and Al Qaeda and they were worried about a blow job. What's going to happen, if they distract us from the real problems again? Will the country ever be able to trust them again?

    it is what it is--but if 'life is a stage'--we are not yet ready for a curtain call?

    please pardon me--i am not thinking that well today---too much processing.

    good quote---i agree wholeheartedly---'"...to pay up, to own up, and to shut up, if beaten, are the virtues of a sporting man....” (Oliver Wendell Holmes)

    what can be done ---that is all I want to know.

    trying to vote 'the lesser of two evils' just doesn't cut it with me.

    that is all i have to say. what am I? can't really say---a more moderate Libertarian maybe--as little as I really know of libertarians.

    i could be happy with some combination of our greatest leaders. don't choose to name names--we have had some effective leaders for over 200 years.

    They certainly don't seem smart enough to learn from their mistakes, do they?

    Ya...they said she spoke on what she was told. Her interviews were a week or more AFTER the attacks. By that time everyone knew it had nothing to do with a video. Am i to believe that she was never told by ANYONE the truth? She knew the truth...she just chose to carry on the lie! She's as much at fault as Obama is.

    Big time. The right wing trash are trying to deflect and hide away as much as they can from getting their heads out of their asses so we can get the fiscal mess in order.
